A Little Flake-y?

Wow!  Has been too long since I've posted here . . . guess you could say I've been a little flaky about posting lately . . . and there are a couple reasons for that!  The main one is that my guys have taken turns being sick since early November.  This has been a tough cold and flu season for us so far . . . and I've done my best to avoid getting sick while trying to take good care of my guys.  The other reason I've been flaky is that I was preparing for a holiday craft faire . . . and actually making lots of snowflake ornaments as part of my preparation for that (I know, I know . . . bad flake pun . . . please pardon my goofy sense of humor!)

Anyway, here are some of the snowflake ornaments I've been creating (they are all made using the Festive Flurry Bundle and Silver 1/8" Ribbon):

The snowflake above has a layer of Pool Party card stock on the bottom, Whisper White stamped with Smoky Slate in the middle, and vellum stamped with Smoky Slate ink, topped with one of the gorgeous Frosted Finishes Embellishments)

 This snowflake variation was inspired by my friend Connie . . . it uses a Silver Glimmer paper snowflake on the bottom, Whisper White stamped with Smoky Slate ink on top of that, then Silver Foil paper heat embossed with Versamark and Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder, topped with a Frosted Finishes Embellishment.

This set of snowflakes is made using Soft Sky Card Stock, with some hints of Pool Party and Coastal Cabana.

A Pool Party and Coastal Cabana snowflake . . . with an In Color Boutique Detail Button in the center and, as the close up below shows, I added some Dazzling Details around the snowflakes and on the button:

Another set of Pool Party and Coastal Cabana snowflakes, again with Dazzling Details highlights, as these close ups show:

Hope you enjoyed these!  Thanks for stopping by!!!
