There's snow business like "Jo" business

Excuse the corny title, but I couldn't resist some pun on the two Joannes on the Gingersnap team working together!!

Jo Capper-Sandon and I, both received the swirling snowflakes stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms (due for release October 16, 2009). We thought it would be fun to have a play and come up with some ideas for using the stamp in different ways. We decided to each make three quick projects using it as a background, a main focus stamp and as an accent. We didn't see each others work until we were finished. It's always great fun to see how someone else interprets a brief, and uses the stamps.

Here are my cards:
For the item showing the stamp as a main focus, I stamped with versamark and used perfect pearls on pink card.

For the background item, I stamped with distress ink onto cream card to make a tag shaped card, using a collage image from Go Make Something.

For the accent piece, I used a bit of scrap leftover from the first card and also cut out an individual snowflake stamped in black, which is highlighted with crackle accents. The main image is from Hearts in Touch (watch out for more from them on Gingersnap), and has been embellished with white flower soft.
