Susan created a wintry card using Tim Holtz Tall Pines, Paper Village, Mini Holiday Greens and Funky Foliage dies. She added some Distress Mica Flakes, Ranger Star Dust Stickles and white paint for an icy effect.

When Andrea saw an ice theme, her mind went straight to Izink Ice Glaze. She used these (Frostbite, Arctic Grape, Whisky Frost and Winter’s Night), along with Simon Says Stamp and CZ Design’s Introverts Unite stamp set, to create an abstract page in her small Dylusions Creative Journal.

Anna-Karin created an icy tag after a very cold week. The Simon Says Stamp Holographic paper was embossed in the Kaleidoscope embossing folder. The lamppost comes from Tim Holtz Christmas 2021 Vault Series.

Barbara used Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Assemblage Clock to create a Christmas decoration inspired by the iced texture. Her Gingerbread House is made with Tim Holtz Sizzix Village Collection completely covered with Ranger Distress Dry Glitter. She lighted the house with Idea-ology Tiny Lights Christmas Festive colors, decoration for the roof is made with Idea-ology Red and White Confection.

Cheiron is celebrating the season with a cold as ice holiday cocktail! She created a card with the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Cocktail Blueprints stamps, and colored her cocktail in festive holiday colors of Festive Berries and Rustic Wilderness Distress Inks on a blue blended background. She completed her card with an Idea-ology Christmas Label Sticker.

Emma created an icy winter wonderland on her card and used the Stampers Anonymous Moon Mask by Tim Holtz to create the background for her scene that also includes the Darling Deer Thinlits Die, surrounded by Tall Pines and completed with a dusting of Mica Flakes.

Kath created an icy winter woodland scene in her Dylusions Creative Journal using Simple Stories Rustic Vintage Christmas Papers and Woodland Bits and Pieces, Tim Holtz Distress Paints and Snowfall Grit Paste, Stampers Anonymous Deco Arch and Snowflakes Layering Stencils, Jolly Santa Winter Watercolor 2 Stamps and Idea-ology Christmas Sticker Book.

Sandra made a Christmas card with the Woodlands die and Sparkle Stencil. To give the background some color she used Distress Spray Stain Speckled Egg with Perfect Pearls Pewter
