‘Tis the Season–Moxie Tuesday Trigger!

Hi Peeps!
Tuesday Trigger Gingerbread Snowflakes
I’m back again today to share a card that I made in response to the most recent Tuesday Trigger Challenge over at the Moxie Fab World Blog.  How delicious and beautiful is that gingerbread snowflake?!!

STAMPS:  Big Snowflake (Hero Arts), Canvas Stripes (Hero Arts), Tiny Treats: Christmas (Papertrey Ink)
INK:  Cajun Craze (Stampin’ Up!), Fresh Snow (Papertrey Ink)
PAPER:  Cajun Craze CS (Stampin’ Up!), White CS (Neenah)
ACCESSORIES:  Tag Trio (Spellbinders), Circles Large Edger Punch (EK Success), Quickie Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds (Stampin’ Up!), White Satin Ribbon (Papertrey Ink), Stampin’ Dimensionals (Stampin’ Up!), Doily (Hobby Lobby)

It totally inspired me to ink up one of the new Hero Arts holiday cling stamps that I got called Big Snowflake.  I stamped it using Fresh Snow ink onto Cajun Craze CS (that really IS rust colored CS, despite the photograph), and then heat embossed it with White ZING embossing powder.  I love how the snowflake really pops off the page when embossed.  I added the doily because every gingerbread snowflake cookie should be served on a doily, right?!!  The background was stamped using another Hero Arts cling stamp called Canvas Stripes and Cajun Craze ink.  I love tone on tone backgrounds.  The scallop border was created with an EK Success border punch.  This card also satisfies the current Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC95) - to use a doily!

There’s still a bit of time if you want to play along with the Tuesday Trigger Challenge, too.  I think the deadline is Sunday, December 5th.  Do it!  Thanks for stopping by today.  I’ll be back real soon!
