Inkspirational - Prompt Word - Flake

It's the start of another great challenge over at Inkspirational today!  This time we've got a prompt word for you.  "Flake".

Now, I know most of you will think snow or snowflake like us DT girls did.  But I hope some of you will push the boundaries and do something like, oh I don't know......pie!  Pie crust is flaky, get it?  LOL!  Anyway, I look forward to seeing all your fabulous interpretations.  Here's my card....

I was recently playing around with this new technique of stamping white on Kraft then stamping over it again, but not exactly, with coloured ink.  It looks really cool and is fun and easy to do.  I used an old foam snowflake stamp from Michaels for my snowflakes and stamped in white pigment ink then went over it with green and red StazOn ink.  I stamped the sentiment (STAMPlorations) in black.

I do hope you'll come on over to see the other fabulous projects the DT made and maybe link up one of your own.  You should check out our fantastic Guest Designer as well.  Jane, of Onions and Paper, has made an amazing card to inspire you!

Well, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!  :-)

I'd like to link up to the following challenges:

Christmas Card Challenges - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - let it snow
Addicted to Stamps and More - holiday
CAS-ual Fridays - snowflakes


  1. Your off-set stamping on kraft is sooooo pretty, Kim, especially with the snowflake images you've chosen. Love this. Pie crust...didn't even cross my mind (but 'being flakey' did *grin*)

  2. What a great card and amazing technique! Great card design and effect! Thank you for joining us at ATSM this week!

  3. I love the effect you've achieved with the foam stamp - it's a bolder look, but the technique of stamping it with white first, then colour, gives it real finesse.

  4. This is such a fun technique and you have mastered it! Great colors too. xxx

  5. These fun colors really shine on the kraft background, Kim! Thanks for playing along with us in our "Let it Snow" challenge this week at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

  6. This is a great card! I love the unique colours used for the snowflakes instead of the traditional blue and or purple...and white/silver. Really nice. If I would make a flake card, it would turn out to be a self-portrait:) My hubby calls me a flake often

  7. I love the technique you've been doing lately-- very cool with the snowflakes! Regarding the word prompt, I keep thinking of flaky people, ha! Is that bad? ;)

  8. Your card is awesome with the offset stamping. Seeing your card I definitely has to whip up some cards with this technique. Fab Kim! :)

  9. Wow! You rock in Kraft :)

    Well i had to zoom in for a closer look as i was sure the snowflakes had been die cut, your clever stamping technique gave such great depth, love it !


  11. That is a brilliant technique and looks absolutely fab on this card. I'm going to have to try it very soon

  12. How cute! I love the depth of the layered snowflakes! Thanks for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays!


Thanks for leaving me your comments. I really appreciate them!
