Snow Swirled...

I bought this stamp set relatively recently as I thought it had so much potential although when it arrived I just wasn't in the frame of mind to do anything with it, in fact it took me almost a a week to even mount it.

Eventually I did assemble the stamps but my MoJo was still lost so I scoured the Internet and found some gorgeous cards made from it and I cased them! So all the next cards are not designed by me, there are small changes but basically they are copied! I don't know who they all belong too so I shall give credit as much as I can!

This first one is very eye catching, the original card used a snowflake dry embossed background but I don't have that one so I used a swirly one as that suits the style of this set very well! I used the Big Shot to emboss the card.

I showed this card to the Christmas Club ladies and they all loved it so we will have a go at making this one next time round. I made three of them with different coloured glitters. The one above is obviously red, I made another one the same using the snowflakes from the set to decorate the background and blue glitter and the third one I made I decided to change the layout slightly and use orange glitter, I also used the So Swirly jumbo wheel for the background!

The original card was designed by InkyPaws.

Now this one is designed by Janette Olen, she used DSP at the top which at this point I don't have so I used the small snowflake from the set.

This one is just beautiful, I am not sure what colour the original designer used and I am not sure who the original designer was, but hers was just stunning. I used last years In Color, Purely Pomegranate, to make this one. It shows how well this set works with Baroque Motifs, another one of my favourite sets.

This one was designed originally by Rhonda Griffin. I love this one, I didn't have the same sentiment stamp as her but I love this one, in fact even more than the one she used.

I am not sure who designed this card the first time, in the name of the file it says the name 'Sears'. I made this card in this colour way and in pink, my addition was glitter as I felt it needed lifting it a little.

These cards are great Lynda, and it is ok to get inspiration from others, especially when your mojo has gone! I thought you had gone AWOL and I missed seeing updates on your blog, glad to see what you made.
