Makena was reminded of all the wonder that the ice cold of winter can bring and immediately thought of snowmen. She made the background using Speckled Egg and Stormy Sky Distress Inks and used a Tim Holtz Mini Swirly Snowflakes Stamp Set . She used Snowman, Branched Birch and Poppystamps Evergreen Trio Dies and finished with Distress Crayons, Mica Spray and various elements from Ideology to pull the frosty look together.

Anna-Karin made a winter village with pastel colors and lots of sparkly snow. She used Tim Holtz Paper Village dies to create the houses. The little deer comes from the Decorative Deer set and the sparkly roofs of the houses were die cut with SSS Glitter Paper.

Barbara created a double project inspired by the fabulous colors of glaciers. The first project is a card realized with Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Bold Tidings 4, Forest Floor, Distress Dry Glitter Clear Rock Candy, Ranger Alcohol Ink Aqua. The second project has made with Idea-ology Display Dome, Idea-ology Salvaged Santa, Distress Grit Paste Opaque, Mica Flakes.

She used Speckled Egg and Iced Spruce Distress Inks to create an icy background, before adding the Sizzix Stunning Snowflake by Tim Holtz as her focal point, together with the word ‘snow’, taken from one of the quotes in the Tim Holtz Bold Tidings 4 stamp set.

Kath has that “Christmas is sneaking up on me” feeling and has created gift card holders for the younger members of the family.
