Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!!!

I'm finishing out Red Rubber Designs' Christmas in August with my favorite winter theme - Snow!  Growing up in Chicago, it seemed like we had constant snow from November through March.  It's actually one of the things I miss most.  If it's going to be cold, it might as well be white!

For this mixed media board, I started with blue paper from the Sands of Time Cardstock Collection - tinted with blue and purple alcohol inks.  I used Red Rubber Design's "Snowflake" stamps and "Peace on Earth" stamps to create a background -  stamping a random pattern of snowflakes and "Peace on Earth" in Palette Inks - Charcoal and 
Beaux Arts  Blue.  Then I heat embossed some large snowflakes with silver embossing powder.  The letters for "Let it Snow" are from the Distressed Typewriter Bet Set and stamped in Beaux Arts Blue on pale grey card stock.  I finished with a few snowflake do-dads that I had in my stash drawer.  (and yes, do-dad is the technical term)


  1. So pretty! I love the up close texture! Snow is my favorite! Beautiful sparkle you have added.

  2. Fabulous layers of snowflakes, KC. These are my favorite as they come without the cold!!

  3. This is lovely! Really gets you into the winter spirit!

  4. Love the blue snowflakes. Send some our way to Texas this year! I'd love to see snowflakes.
