Christmas Stamp a Stack

I had a TERRIFIC Christmas Stamp a Stack and all the ladies had a great time.  Thank you to all that came and hope that you enjoyed all the cards we made.

Here is one of the cards we made that was at the top of the list of favorites:

What's winter without snow?  I don't think I can get through winter or the holiday season without making a snowflake card. The new Snowflake Soiree set is my set for this season.

I really like how this card turned out using the Big Shot Top Note die and a 4-1/4" x 11" Bashful Blue.  Scored and folded in half.  Place the folded piece, with a piece of Whisper White 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" onto the Top Note die with the folded side almost to the inside top of the outline of the cutter. You want the folded edge to be right under the cutting edge. This will allow you to only cut one side of the die into the paper and will cut all your pieces the same size.

Then take your Whisper White and cut along the dotted edge to make it smaller then the Bashfull Blue.  For the ink I choose Bashful Blue & Midnight Muse Classic Ink and Frost White Shimmer Paint.   You will also need a clean dauber, then dab it into the shimmer paint,  ink up your stamp with the classic ink, then take your dauber and dab onto the stamp lightly across the whole stamp.  Then stamp onto your whisper white.  I did the double stamping technique, (stamping twice without re-inking), with some of the snowflakes.

It may take a couple of mintues to dry.  Once dry, use your adhesive and put the Whisper White onto the Bashful Blue and then put it onto a piece of Midnight Muse 4-3/4" x 4-1/4".  You can make your card eith protrait or landscaped.  Either way they will turn out beautiful...
