Same stamp different ways

This is the WOW! Embossing Powder challenge for this October month. I liked the theme but I couldn't get any ideas on what to do so I played around with different combinations of stamps and techniques until I nearly gave up!  I had one last go at the week end and finally chose what to do. I kept it simple using just one stamp and a minimum of embellishments.

I first inked the Snowflakes background stamp (Impression Obsession) with a multi coloured inkpad.
For my second way with the stamp I white embossed a matching piece of cardstock. I then die-cut a piece with a Spellbinders die and threaded through some blue paper as a "ribbon".
I then decorated my strip with very small die-cuts in silver.

The most time consuming part of the card has been the gluing of the tiny gems at the centre of the small snowflakes!

Thanks for coming by,
