Andrea made a tree tag with three angelic souls (or are they?) using Waffle Flower’s Slimline Christmas Tree Dies set, Ranger Kraft Heavystock paper, and Tim Holtz’s Groups Paper Dolls.

Anna-Karin made a card with the Simon Says Stamp Snowflocked Hills embossing folder and white glossy cardstock. The Simon Says Stamp Etched Berry Branch was die cut from vellum.

Barbara made a winter card mixing three stamp sets by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous: Winter Watercolor, Winterscape, Cozy Christmas. She created her background with Ranger Distress Ink pads and she added Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Moon Stencil.

Cheiron created a card with a purple holiday tree using the Simon Says Stamp Leafy Christmas Tree die in her favorite Simon cardstock purples: Royal Purple, Lavender and Blue Violet. She added white paint splatter to the tree along with a die cut Large Joy. To finish she added some Unicorn Tears gemstones.

Emma made a vintage style home decor framed panel for Christmas and used the Sizzix Tall Pines Thinlits Die Set by Tim Holtz, surrounded by icy Distress Mica Flakes, to create the winter wonderland backdrop for her Woodland Santa, who is definitely ready for the festive season!

Kath loves to mix and match stamp sets and used Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Holiday Things, Jolly Santa and the cute image from Simon Says Night Before Christmas from the Handmade Holiday release, on backgrounds created with Villainous Potion and Antique Linen Distress Oxide inks, to create her winter woodland Christmas cards. 

Macarena made a Xmas shaker card using Tim Holtz Sizzix Tree line die for the forest inside the snowglobe and also took the tree from Tim Holtz Sizzix Merry Moose dies for the outside.

Maura made a funky holiday card using the Tim Holtz and Sizzix Funky Tree die, the Simon Says Stamp Geometric Snowflake stencil, Shaved Ice from Stampendous, and Tim Holtz Villainous Potion distress oxide ink.

Meihsia was inspired to create a Christmas tag using Stamperia Classic Christmas 6X6 Paper and added a vintage station wagon using Simon Says Stamp Vintage Christmas Station Wagon Wafer Dies Peace On Earth.

Sandra made a Christmas card using the Simon Says Stamp Sprinkle Snowglobe Embossing Folder and the Tree Line die. The sprinkles are filled in with Texture Paste to make them stand out.  

Zoey used Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps WINTERSCAPE for her image in the background, she then filled the white spots with Zig Kuretake AI Liner Ultra Fine BLACK Brush Tip Pen . The color she used are from Distress Spray and Distress Mica Spray. She also used Tim Holtz Idea-ology PHOTOBOOTH with a layer of Distress Collage Medium Vintage over.
