Wintery Wishes for a Happy New Year!

 It’s a brand new year and we wish you all the best in health, joy and of course more crafting time.

This week we’ve been walking through our Winter Wonderland Collection and our snowflakes are the magic ingredient. Start with any of our winter images, add a little snowflakes and a wonderland project is complete.

This Winter Snow stamp is two inches square in size perfect for tags and a repeated image for backgrounds that goes with Winter Wonderland stamp. Take a look at how this two stamps work together on Kristine Reynolds’ card.

Our Delicate Snow comes in three intricate flake designs that are a jumbo step up from our Winter Snow image because not one flake is alike. Krissy Fossmeyer used these larger snowflakes in such a simple way, but with a large impact.

When you add a coordinating set of dies with Delicate Snow Set you can create an interactive winter wonderland like the ornament project Wendy Price created for her Christmas tree.
