Winter's Memory

Welcome to Sparkle N Sprinkle's March 1 Reveal

This month we are featuring five versatile stamp sets.
Two of the sets are perfect for Christmas.
Many of our customers said they promise themselves to make Christmas cards a little bit each month, all year long, but they fail to find the time. So this month's technique kit uses the pretty Red Cardinal drawn by Rosiland Solomon.

The Winter Cardinal stamp set is available by itself on line.
It is also included in Jazzy Jill's Technique Video for the month.

The first of the month also means a new challenge at SNS Creative Challenges where the theme is always 
"Anything Goes with Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder and/or Flocking."

I made my card using the Crystal Medallion stamp set. This medallion looks like a beautiful snowflake.  I have titled my post Winter's Memory but some of us are still in winter! Boy, we have had a brutal one this year! I hope this card inspires you to start on some of your next year's Christmas cards. I have made a goal of making three Christmas cards a month. This sure helps when the crunch of Christmas activities start!

I stamped the medallion three times, added Blue Silver embossing powder and fussy cut different sized layers. I pop dotted them and added Fascination glitter to the edges. Rhinestones and a sparkly pearl were added as embellishments. For further instructions on how to make this card, please click here.

Five Winners (one for each new stamp set) will be selected by Random.org during the Designers Mystery Party. Winners will also get to choose one Glitter and one Embossing Powder to go with their new stamp set.

Oh my goodness, this card is a true stunner! All that fussy cutting and glittery work sure paid off with this marvelous creation as the outcome! I love your blues and whites, your snowflake is gorgeous and the white flourishes layered in the corners and bg really add dimension and depth, as do all the elements you chose. What a beautiful card! :)
