Friday Flashback: Snowflakes

Today's Friday Flashback stamp set is a real oldie, Snowflakes...and the first of *indistinct mumble* snowflake stamp sets in my collection :)

I made this for my very first stamp club workshop when I became a demonstrator; my friend asked to do polished stone (still probably one of my favorite techniques).  I did another one of these where I wrapped the silver cord around the outside of the brads rather than having it go around the inside corners, and I liked that one better but I think that was the card that Sadie thought it was a chew toy so I never got a picture of it (Sadie is my little girl Lab mix).  You can see the full supply list here.

Another oldie, I can tell because it's a scan rather than a photo.  How's that for some less-traditional snowflake colors?  I still miss Cool Caribbean.  And Happy Everything, I loved that stamp set.  Supply list for this one is here.

And here's my two new cards using Snowflakes.  I finally got to do the Create with Connie & Mary color challenge to use Baja Breeze, Wisteria Wonder, and Silver but too late to enter the challenge.  And I think I might like that one better if I'd stamped the snowflakes on white paper instead of the Baja, but I was trying something different.  The Pacific Point/Bermuda Bay one on the right just looks more crisp to me.  These are both variations on the current CAS(e) This Sketch challenge:

Happy Friday, and thanks for stopping by!
