Wonderful Winter Snowflakes and Friends

winter-friends-title

Today we are letting you in on a little-known secret about our Cling Rubber Stamp Sets. Look for an orange triangle in the upper right corner of the packaging and you will find a free template inside! Yep, the template complements the stamp set amazingly and our Winter Friends are complete with a snowflake stencil.

Here are two projects shared earlier this week that took advantage of the template and created a great backdrop for the Winter Friend characters.

There are so many great snowflakes in the template you may think we have it covered, but there is a flurry of options on our website in our Dreamweaver Stencils and Fran’s Metal Stencils that are terrific for all your winter projects! Be sure to visit our website to see projects using them, there is a project waiting for you to try!

This penguin is donning a top hat for the holidays, a simple gesture for the splendor of the season as we end our week with Winter Friends.
