Hi! Today I am showcasing the January card kit by SimonSaysStamp. The kit is called “Snowflake Builder” and I just love the color combo! It includes lots of fun products such as snowglobes, a stamp set, a snowflake die, a jar of matte medium, a blue alcohol ink, mica flakes, patterned paper, cardstock and envelopes.

1. alcohol ink card

For the first card I used the blue alcohol ink that came in my kit. I applied that on yupo paper and some alcohol to move the ink easier with a straw while blowing. The blue background helps the cut out snowflake pop even more!

I also did the lift-ink technique on the background that added some extra interest and visual texture.

2. heat embossing card

For this card I layered two stamps of snowflakes one on top of the other for a more complicated look. I did some simple heat embossing with white powder and then applied my sentiment on top. For some extra silver sparkle I matted the panel with glitter cardstock and added silver sequins on the snowflake.

This is a square card, that’s 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 and it fits in a standard envelope.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

  15. I love the versatility of the snowflake layers. Great giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity to win it. Merry Christmas!

  16. Beautiful job on both these cards Vicky! I really favor the gray card more. I hope to follow your lead with casing the gray card. What I like most of this set is color combo. TFS!

  17. Love the little card that could be used as a gift tag just so cute ❄️ A really beautiful winter kit by Kristina ?

  18. Both are beautiful cards! So glad you used the alcohol lift ink. I think it’s under used in card making videos. The lift ink had a lot of videos when it first came out – now you seldom see it used. Thank you for your creative ideas. ?

  19. Hi Vicky Merry Christmas to you. I am in love with your cards. The kit is awesome. Thanks for the chance, Carmen

  20. Your cards are gorgeous- I love the grey one with the bright white snowflake and silver sequins! Thank you for the opportunity to win this beautiful card kit!

  21. I love your cards. My favourite part of the kit is the stamp set. You can never have too many snowflake stamps (especially in Canada!)

  22. I love your work! The stamp set is fabulous in this kit. It would be fun to layer the snowflakes with different embossing powders.
    Thanks so much for the giveaway.

  23. I love the “Snow Man Like You” first card!!! Your use of the alcohol ink and the alcohol lift, make a stunning but fairly simple background that I can create. The beautiful die cut snowflake showing off on the blue background, is “show stopper ” that would delight the recipient of such a gorgeous card!
    Thanks for sharing your talent and creativity, especially for us 70 ish old stampers and paper crafters who need a jolt of creativity juice to get us to continue to do what we love!

  24. Vicki , I look forward to your videos everyday. You are such an inspiration and wonderful designer. You make it look so easy and every card comes out so beautiful. Thank you for your dedication to our art of card making. Patti golub

  25. I’m with you, the colors are my favorite part of the card kit. I also love the stamp set. I think this is a fantastic card kit, and appreciate a chance of winning one! Thanks, Vikki!

  26. Wow – beautiful cards. I think I love the pretty pattern paper the best but the huge layering snowflake stamp set is a close second!

  27. This kit is perfect – everything matches so well together! The Pattern Paper is gorgeous, love it!! and Kristina did. a great job on desining the stampset- so fun to create imdividual snowflakes! Thank you, Vicky for your wonderful inspirations!

  28. I love making personalized Christmas cards for friends and family (@ToffeeSentiments). Both the snowflake stamp set and paper are so gorgeous. Its nice to see non-traditional (green/red) colors being used for Christmas.

  29. I love that it’s a blue wintery theme, as opposed the typical red/green you see so much of in xmas cards. Love what you did with it, too!

  30. I love your cards and this kit looks amazing! I just started card making and I enjoy it very much! The snowflakes would be great to add to my supplies! Thank you for sharing!

  31. I just love the colors and you’re creativity. I’d love to see what you’d come up with for those adorable mini snowglobes!

  33. Both cards are beautiful, but really love the alcohol ink card. Dreamy and ethereal. I don’t have the alcohol removal ink pad so would clear embossing have the same effect if used before adding the alcohol ink? Thanks for the inspiration!

  34. Hi Vicky! Thank you for the beautiful cards you make. I love watching your card videos. I get such great inspiration from them. I love this card kit! Snowflakes are my favorite. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.

  35. Beautiful cards, Vicki. I love snowflakes so I think the very best thing in the kit is the snowflake stamp set. It is particularly nice because of the ability to ‘assemble it yourself’ and make each snowflake different.

  36. The colours in this kit are simply stunning. My son went to New Zealand and I’m going to do an album of his trip. This kit would be perfect to make the background pages for his photos. Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards and for the opportunity to win.

  37. Hi Vicky. You are so amazing! I love to watch you make cards from the kits. I would love to win this kit. I make cards to send to friends and shut-ins. Thank you!

    Merry merry, Nadine

  41. What I like best is the versatility of this kit. You did something wonderful with it and Kristina did something very different but equally wonderful. I can see using this all winter long for years.

I loved the cards and the colors too. I’d like to try to make a little snow globe too. Thanks for the give away. :))

  47. I love the color of alcohol ink included in the kit. Combining it with white gives stunning results. And loved you idea with snowflake die cut on the inked background. Really bold and beautiful.

  66. Realize after so many years of card making I don’t have snowflake stamps. Have dies though, so do like there is a whole large set of snowflake stamps.
