Okay...simmering down...Time to invite you to Inkspirational Challenges #97, where this two-week inspiration is
Our talented Guest Designer, Jane, along with my wonderfully creative DT
I saw an adorable snowman stamp from IO a while back, with a sentiment that read, "Some of my best friends are flakes." I was tempted, but resisted, as I didn't want to potentially offend anyone but...seriously, it was so totally cute. I imagine the people I'd send it to would appreciate the humour (I hope...). In hindsight, should have bought it; I'll add it to my Santa wish list.
My card is obvious snowflake direction: a trio of inlaid snowflakes, cut with shimmer paper, accompanied with some TH sentiment die cuts. My poor cuttlebug is experiencing issues of late, so as simple as this card "should" be to make, it wasn't! I'm adding new die-cutting machine to my wish list, too (gosh, I hope I've been less naughty and more nice this year!).
Your turn...bring your *flakes* to the stage! See you in the gallery!

Oooh, I'd have giggled with the sentiment on that stamp set you mentioned. I'm sure you have been oodles more nice than naughty! Sorry to hear your Cuttlebug hasn't been as nice, though. But, you seem to have gotten it to work well enough to make a shimmery flakey card and tag. Beautiful designs on both.
Beautifully delicate and shimmery, Carol ... both card and tag are just a delight! Sorry about the Cuttlebug 'issues' ... even though I know you've been nice, Santa might delay bringing you a replacement machine till the new electronic Big Shot comes out next year ... yes?! Delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out, my friend! Hugs, Anita :)
Oooooh all of your "flakey" projects are just amazing! Snowflakes are my number one favorite stamps/dies, so these are all right up there on my favorites list! I love the inlaid shiny ones! So festive and fun! Stay warm and big hugs!! :)
Oh my goodness you do have an assortment of goodies and they are all beautiful and frosty! The inlay is just gorgeous , Carol!
The shimmer is fabulous - these have a really festive look.
Very fun card and tag! I love the the way you used your die cuts. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Santa has heard your wish about the new die cutting machine. ;) Hugs! xxx
Love your card! Those shiny flakes are so pretty, The tag is beautiful, too. I've seen the stamp you almost bought. In fact, I think I have it. ( Who knows all that we own, right?) xo
Love your shimmery snowflake card. Living in a part of Australia where Christmas is generally around 30°C I tend not to do snowflake or snow cards but I love seeing the different snowflake designs. Yours are really lovely.
I would TOTALLY appreciate that bit of humor, c ... it takes a flake, to appreciate a flake!!! xx LOve that snowflake tag!!!
Ahhhhh....i love softly falling snowflakes...when they aren't accomanied by -4,000,000,000 tems! Your card and tag - totally heart warming! I love the single pop of green that you included on the card and the tag!
Hear you loud and clear....I'm pretty much in holiday season panic-mode too! Hopefully will get the house decorated tomorrow...then I have to start thinking about shopping!!!
Fabulous cards Carol, I am in love with those sweet and shiny snowflakes. Just beautiful.
Dear Carol, I am so behind with everything this year and your reminder to breath deeply is very much needed!
Your card/tag combo is really lovely with the metallic papers!
Love those metallic snowflakes & the red & white tag is so striking!
Metallic shine....me like :D
Such a wonderful card and tag. Love how you have used all shiny and metallic elements, and everything is so perfectly placed. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.
So pretty the card with the matching tag! The metallic paper looks great! Add some air of festiveness (is that a word?) and elegance!
Pretty, pretty card! Fun font too
Sometimes this is all a card needs to say all! Pretty CAS-card! Thank you for taking the TIME OUT and join us!
Awesome! Love those foil snowflakes! Real snowflakes should be foil too! I might like the snow better then. LOL.
Love the metallic snow flakes, great card!
I really love how you played with your snowflakes, Carol! Beautiful card and tag!
By the way...I love the 'Friends' sentiment, but I'm not easily offended...I think it's funny!
Fab way to use those inlaid snowflakes - they totally pop against the white. I would so have bought that snowman stamp...what a great sentiment! Thanks for playing along at CAS-ual Fridays!
I love all the shimmer on your card and tag, Carol, and you could send that 'flake' card to me. I'd love it.
Really beautiful. I love the tag you made with the "waste" die cuts
Oh, these are so fun and festive!! Thanks for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays!
Oh all that metallic glimmer and shine... that is soooo my kind of Christmas. My kind of anything, really. LOL. The bold flakes are perfect! LOVE them.
OOh pretty! Love the shimmer and shine! Too darling!
