Let It Snow!

Hello friends!  Here in Iowa, we usually have snow by now.  We had a "green" Christmas and there is not a snowflake to be seen.  I went to Twin Oaks, one of my favorite local scrapbook stores yesterday and the owner was busy making beautiful snowflakes.  She was kind enough to show me how.  These would be so cute hanging in a window or suspended from a ceiling.  I've used "Khaki Collection" by Quick Quotes on the small flake and a mix of Tumblebeasts and Quick Quotes on the large flake.  Before I assembled the snowflakes, I inked some ares and heat embossed with  Metallic Gold Rich Pale by Wow Embossing Powders.  Suzy West has her line of embossing powders and they will debut at CHA.
Can you see how dimensional these are?

I plan to do a tutorial soon.

Your snowflakes are lovely. The curled effect is really interesting. No snow here either...very dry with not even any rain. Happy Creating...

Love your snowflakes!!! Those are about the only kind we're seeing here as well. The only ski resorts that are open here are the ones that have snowmaking equipment. It's just crazy!
