Tim Holtz STAMPERS ANONYMOUS Christmas 2023 Release - FESTIVE PRINT Cards



Hello Lovelies! The Festive Print Stamp Set from Tim Holtz's Stampers Anonymous 2023 Christmas Release was calling my name from the minute that I saw it. The bold lines make big impressions with minimal effort.


Join me as I paid them with two of the new Mini stencils to create a frosty duo of Christmas cards!



The full Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous 2023 Halloween Release includes 5 stamp sets and 3 stenscils in two different sizes and an additional set of mini stenciles. You can get it as a bundle, but each stamp and stencil set is also available to purchase individually from Simon Says Stamp.


Let's take a closer look at the stamp set that we'll use for this make:




In addition, we'll use one of the mini stencil sets and some of the newest Distress mediums to add some more texture to the cards:
