Christmas Kickstart and The Paper Players: Fab Flakes

This is my second post today.

With inspiration from the Christmas Kickstart Snow is Falling Challenge, I had planned on playing with snowflakes this weekend.  I hadn't planned on playing along with the bold colors at The Paper Players mainly because it ends in an hour.  But I was looking through a Stampin' Up order I just got yesterday  I realized the Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems which includes Night of Navy gems (one of the colors at The Paper Players) flash so many colors - I'm seeing pinks and aquas and oranges.  So if you followed the odd way my mind works, this convinced me that I needed to do bright and cheerful snowflakes with the bold colors and flashing gems.  

Fab Flakes

These snowflakes are new-to-me but actually fairly old.  They are a Papertrey Ink set that I've always liked because of the unique shapes and solid stamps so when they ended up on their Blow-Out sale, I picked them up.

Thank you to both challenges for the inspiration!

  2. Kim I totally follow your thinking and funnily enough I was looking at those very gems yesterday and thinking how lovely they would look with some bright colours.
