Friday Flashback: Serene Snowflakes

Happy Friday and welcome to the Friday Flashback!  Today's stamp set of choice is Serene Snowflakes, and I'm a total sucker for snowflake stamps.  Let's get started!

This was our 2009 Christmas card.  The main image is Patterned Pines (I actually got two of that set, one to keep the three trees as one stamp and the other one to cut them apart); the green snowflake background is from today's stamp set.  The main image is on Shimmery White paper to make it a little more special...I was going for a flat easy-to-mail card (plus easy to make multiples).

And here again the snowflakes are in the background...the main image is *cough cough* contraband but I needed a polar bear image to make a Hanukkah card for my friend Sarah :)

And there's a couple of baby book layouts.  For the first one, I just took the color combo from the patterned paper (which is when I fell in love with Bordering Blue, so of course they retired it immediately thereafter) and the second one I did more purple because that book was for my friend Melissa's daughter, and Melissa loves purple so her book was purpled up pretty good.

I made this one for a challenge last year, it was one of the earlier posts on this blog.  I don't like those white-on-white challenges though, I love COLOR so this was definitely a one-off for me!

And that's it for the Flashback, here's today's brand new card:

I am kinda totally in love with this color combination:  Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, and Wisteria Wonder.  I saw a gift bag with a snowman on it and the bag was done in these colors and I couldn't wait to try it out myself.  I think I might make a few of these with Festive Flurry to send out to my SU ladies...the sentiment is also retired, but it's from Snowflakes.  I stamped the smaller snowflakes in Whisper White on the Cabana layer but they're not showing up too great on the pic.  Oh well.

Anyway, this awesome sketch is brought to you by Create with Connie and Mary:

Thanks for stopping by today, have a great weekend!
