The showcase stamp set of the week is Snow Swirled.  The card featured today was made by Pam Crane, one of my Stampin' Crew and a long time stamper.  She made this for one of our Christmas Card Swaps.

I love the variety of snowflakes in this set.  Pam used Glossy White Card Stock, then sponged on Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue ink for the background.  

Here's a little closer look.  After stamping on Glossy Card Stock, give it a little extra time to dry.  
Supplies used:

Snow Swirled stamp set #127799
Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Marina Mist ink.
Marina Mist, Basic Black and Glossy White card stock

For those of you who missed out, here's a photo of the Advent Calendar Box we made last week.

We used the 25 & Counting stamp set.
