Just released! My Sizzix Winter Wonderland craft dies

Is it possible to add a PS. at the beginning instead of the end?
Because I want to give you a quick heads-up that Sizzix has let me know there's going to be a fabulous giveaway of Winter Wonderland products very soon! Watch this space and my Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/SharynSowell for the news!
There will be just ONE day to enter...
 
The festive season is right around the corner and just in time Sizzix has released Winter Wonderland, my newest collection of crafting dies.


It's a group of snowflakes that makes elegant and intricate quick and easy.

I've been dying to share peeks and after months of waiting, I can finally share it with you.
I'm delighted with the intricacy of the tiny details.


You'll want a die pick (click here to see it) and die brush (click here to see it) any time you're working with intricate little dies like this.
 I consider them essential~ they make even the most complex projects fast and easy.

Grab a cup of something hot and delicious and let's get a jump on our holiday cards!

Here's how:
Just one very elaborate die that does all the work for you.
Click here to see more about this die.

All you need is a decadent piece of lush paper- a sparkly sheet or a nice vellum, maybe a beautiful sheet of watercolor paper-
choose something festive but simple.
Fold one piece into a card and use another to cut festive snowflakes with your Big Shot die cutting machine.


Coat with sparkly glitter or add a few rhinestones, embellish (or not!) as you like, then bend at the fold and glue onto the card.

For subtle embellishment, there's nothing like the bargain-priced Falling Snowflakes embossing folder.
 
Just run an envelope, piece of vellum, or thick, lush heavy paper through the embossing folder and you've got instant texture that you can glitter, paint or use as a subtle touch.



Elegant photo corners add another layer of sparkle... sprinkle them with mica glitter or use silvery paper...
Great for adding notes and photos.


Many of the snowflakes in this group have holes in the middle, 
making them perfect for slipping over things like twinkle lights.


Just slip over the bulbs as shown and use on trees or mantels or as swags.
We could all use extra lighting all winter, couldn't we?


And these can stay up until winter melts away!

Fill your mug again, grab your dies and die pick and let's get crafting... 

Next up, a tutorial for making the darling snowflake crown seen on the beautiful model at the top of the post!
