SUITE: Snowflake Splendor

The August–December 2020 Mini Catalog Inspiration SNOWFLAKE SPLENDOR SUITE You may want to grab a cup of cocoa and a cozy sweater before you sit down to create with the Snowflake Splendor Suite! This stamp and die bundle will help you create a blizzard of snowflakes for the perfect storm of winter crafting. The Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper complements the stamps and dies with hand-painted, watercolor snowflakes in lots of icy purples and blues. The tutorial I'm sharing changes up the colors and design for a bit of rustic glamour and a little tweak to the standard card size. Happy Stamping,

SUITE: Wonder of the Season

The August–December 2020 Mini Catalog Inspiration WONDER OF THE SEASON SUITE When you think of Christmas what do you imagine? I don't have visions of sugarplums dancing in my head, but I do picture reindeer, sleighs with bells, and a cozy home decorated with mistletoe, lights, and garland. You'll find those traditional colors and iconic images of Christmas in the Wonder of the Season Suite. This mega suite includes two stamp and die combos, two Designer Series Paper choices, a Memories & More Card Pack with coordinating decorative Card & Envelopes, plus embellishments and ribbon to put the perfect finishing touches on your holiday projects. Even a perfectly traditional stamp set can take on a modern flair when combined with non-traditional colors and layout. I think you'll love the unexpected look of the trendy card I'm sharing in the tutorial below. Which style is your favorite traditional or non-traditional? Happy Stamping,

Tammy
