Happy, happy Thursday! I hope your week has been filled with joy and creativity. If you are in need of inspiration, you’ve come to the right place because all week we’ve been sharing projects from Guest Designers Valerie Ward and Noriko Fairchild. Today, Valerie comes to use with a pair of coordinating cards that are so ‘chill’ they are smokin’ hot with cuteness! Before we get to Valerie’s awesome cards, I wanted to mention a brand new product we are releasing today, our Limited Edition Matchbox Miniatures Craft Kit! Keep reading for more details. Now on to Valerie’s projects…

Using our new If Snowmen Could Talk stamp & die combo, Valeria stamped and customized these two darling snow people, coloring in bright, vibrant color.

Valerie cut frames for each of her cards using our Picture Perfect – Vertical die set. This set comes with frames in two sizes, both terrific for the Christmas and Winter holidays. With some patterned paper and some simple sponging, she has two adorable cards to send to friends and family!

Thanks so much, Valerie, for sharing these cute cards with us today! Tune in tomorrow, folks, for one more day with Valerie as we round out our Guest Designers week!
