    I would use the Elves clear stamp set, I’ve got so many deers, santas, snowflakes, and snowmen already. It’s nice to see a set that I can use in so many different ways.

    It is all great, but my favorites are Winter Animals and Marshmallow Snowmen!

  • Reply Regina Thomas October 17, 2018 at 5:59 am

    Hello, At first I was going to say Marshmallow snowman. I can already see the card with a hot cocoa image but then WOW the snowflakes and die set are a gorgeous set and can do so much with. I would make winter cards with the die on thr front cover and the snowflake on the inside showing through. Ahhh the possibilities.

  • Reply Donna Boone October 17, 2018 at 2:27 am

    Hi there, I loved all the cards, they are beautiful. I’m not really a card maker. I make jewelry. So, what I would do is use the Marshmallow Snowman clear stamp set with coordinating dies and the Cute Winter Sentiments clear stamp set with the Stitched Circles die set on white shrink plastic. I would color them in with my pencils. (They work best on shrink plastic.) Then I would make charms out of them for a Holiday/Winter charm bracelet, earrings and a necklace set. When they were finished I could use White Soft Finish Cardstock to make a card blank with the ModaScrap It’s Christmas Time 6 x 6 Patterned Paper Pack for the background and punch holes in it for the earrings and slits for the necklace and bracelet to display them. And then give them to my friends and relatives for Christmas gifts! I think I just figured out what to do for presents.
