    Thanks for this great idea. I have not tried making my own background paper before but think this would be the perfect set to begin with. And living in Minnesota (radio announcers say “Minne-SNOW-ta” certainly provides a lot of opportunity for snowflake based cards.

  • Mary W October 14, 2015, 2:20 pm

    I decorate for Christmas with traditional colors and used to hate taking everything down as it seemed so empty. My solution was to decorate January with snowflakes, snowmen, and snowy “things”. This stamp is so cool for warming up my January home.

  • TY Nabata October 14, 2015, 2:20 pm

    Catherine, I LOVE the card that you just created! I have always had a “weakness” for all things SNOWFLAKES! :D Thank you for sharing all of your creative ideas with all of us!

    I cannot wait to make this pattern paper! What inspiration!! I am just so excited, and I am SO setting my clock for 6 a.m. (yes, I am on the WEST coast, and I will NOT miss this SOA box!!).

  • Jonathan Trimm October 14, 2015, 2:22 pm

    I would love to try this technique with white on white monochromatic stamping of the snowflakes to create like a White Christmas look. Maybe embossing some of them and maybe die-cutting some to lift them up.

  • Sherry in MI October 14, 2015, 2:25 pm

    Great card. Always love making my own backgrounds. That way I get what I want!

  • Elizabeth October 14, 2015, 6:54 pm

    WOW now where do i start Catherine, i have done this technique ONCE but after your video i might just have to go and have another go :), you always inspire me with your videos, both backgrounds were great, but maybe with the pink one next time you could try gold small snowflakes instead of silver (i think they might stand out a bit nicer? but there are plenty of options and colour combinations). i would be truly amazed if my name got pulled out of the box/hat to receive a SOA holiday box and have some of these lovely products in New Zealand :), thanks to you (for your collection of everything in the box), to your blog hoppers (for there input of how they used some of the items in the box) and to your daughters (as i’m guessing they will be packing the boxes). ooh also better thank your Husband for letting you do what you love (either making the videos for fellow crafters to watch around the world and now letting you pack all these boxes and having all this wonderful goodness into your house for fellow crafters to receive).

  • Lynette October 14, 2015, 6:56 pm

    I really do think the snowflake sets are going to be my favorite sets in the collection. Well, or maybe the snowflake dies. Or wait, maybe those cool borders. Or, … well, too much to love to pick one favorite! Can’t wait to get started stamping with my box of goodies!
