Stamping Handmade Hugs

When you can't hug in person, send a Handmade Hug you created, with Stamps, Paper & Ink!


    Snow Flurries…not something you hear about very often in California. Although, it did happen once, when I was pregnant with my first child…28 years ago. There was a complete layer of snow covering the streets and yards of everyone in Fairfield, California! I remember we had a little Dodge Colt that couldn’t make it up the hill leaving our neighborhood…well, the car  slid a little and I decided, it was too dangerous to have my pregnant-self slipping and sliding on the snow-laden streets. So, I took a snow day off of work! If you live in snow country, feel free to mock us California drivers that can’t drive in the snow…it’s true for some of us!

    I love snowflake stamps almost as much as flower stamps. They are so pretty and have such a wide variety of delicate lines.  My collage below has stamped, heat embosed, glittered and die cut snowflakes on the cards and Mini-Pizza Boxes. They were lots of fun to make!

     The Wisteria Wonder Card and Pizza Box were done with the Emboss-Resist method you see in the instructions below. Let me know if it’s not clear or if you have any questions or comments.

     If you have never seen Dazzling Diamonds glitter in person before, it is a must see glitter. I have never seen a glitter that sparkles so brilliantly. If you stamp a color under it, it is even more spectacular! These are the instructions for the Dazzling Diamonds(glitter)/Noel card.  This same technique can be done with the stamp-a-ma-jig, which  is on my “to do” list of  tutorials to make at some point for you.

    Love, love, love Flurry of Wishes and Dazziling Diamonds. I’ve never tried emboss resist with a spritzer, I need to give it a try.

      Flurry of Wishes is definitely one of my favorite snow flake stamp sets. There is a nice variety of snow flake sizes and they are just so pretty! Thank you for commenting, I’m glad you like it!
