I love this book because when you are wanting to create you can pick any color and then you can find wonderful color palettes there for you.  I chose the color Glacier, and looked up Glacier in the Love of Color Idea Book.

I chose this color palette….

Here is my creation….

I used the Glacier pattern paper from the Seasonal Mix In Paper Pack as the background. I used the Winter Flurries Thin Cuts and cut using Heather and Glacier.  The sentiment is from the stamp set Christmas Countdown and used Peacock Ink. The swirls are from Falling Flakes stamp set and stamped int Heather. I added a some shimmer to the Glacier snow flake using my  Clear Shimmer Brush.

I was really drawn to the snow globe so I know that would be the stamp set I wanted to focus on.  I decided I used one of the Adventure fundamental paper for the background to emboss.

I also though I would grey to stamp on the silver foil paper with the Archival Black ink which work.  Just let it sit for a couple of minutes before you touch it. I did a bit of fussy cutting with the silver foil, Pewter cardstock and the White cardstock.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of October and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!
