A crop party is a modern quilting bee. A group of friends gather to have girl friend time, sharing joys and sorrows while preserving memories and creating a special keepsake.

Inspired by Gift Bags

As I was assembling goody bags with the help of my assistant last Christmas, I found myself thinking that they would make good cards, so I made a few extra tags which I have been using thoughout the year. 

My latest effort was inspired by this Try Stamping on Tuesday sketch:

The snowflake was cut and embossed and the hexagon cut using Spellbinders Shapeabilities.  The swirling snowflakes and sentiment are from a long retired but still one of my favorite stamp sets, Snow Flurries, by Close to My Heart.  I embossed the sentiment to give it more pop and to balance the white in the rest of the card.  Of course I had to embellish with sparkles because y'all know how much I like sparkles, particularly the itty bitty ones.

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time, Hansi

Materials used, all Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted:
Paper:  Glacier and Colonial White cardstock with Kraft paper
Ink:  Colonial White
Stamps:  Snow Flurries (retired)
Embellishments:  Blue sparkles (retired but you can always use an alcohol marker, such as a ShinHan, to color clear ones)
Other:  Create-a-Flake Five and Hexagon Shapabilites by Spellbinders
