3 snowflake cards + the honey bee stamps season to sparkle hop

I love creating handmade holiday cards with snowflakes and sparkle! 

Hopefully you are joining us for the Honey Bee Season To Sparkle Hop Day 2 and arriving from Bobbi Lemanski's fantastic blog! 
Before you hop on to the fabulous blog of Jessica Frost-Ballas, let's talk about making some sparkly snowflake cards!



I recently rediscovered the Nuvo Shimmer Powders in my craft room...you find a lot of treasures when you have to pack it up for moving. The powders are a mix of dry pigments & mica and they are so fun to play with!

You can see how these cards came together in this quick video...





One more thing before you hop along, Honey Bee is giving away a $30 gift card to a lucky & random commenter so make sure to comment on each stop on the hop for a chance to win!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
Carly
