Picture it…Wintertime in the 1940's and 50's. “Ralphie” wrapped up in his snowsuit heading out to school. A Frosty the Snowman tin lunchbox in tow. An aluminum Christmas tree in the front room. And the sounds of Bing Crosby playing over the radio.
Maybe it is a memory for you, or something out of your favorite winter time film, but the futuristic influences of the Atomic Age left a lasting impression in decor and architecture.
These are images that inspired our Retro Winter collection! From the cute and classic Build a Snowman Stamp set to the geometric and funky Snow Blossoms- your customers will love creating with this collection.
The four new Urban Oasis Spa Inks, Pink Champagne, Orange Peel, Hot Tub and Sangria make the perfect color scheme for these retro designs and come together in the Feelin' Chilly Patterned Paper like a dream.
In this card, I used my Life Changing Blending Brushes to create an Urban Oasis rainbow. It's GORGEOUS! In rainbow order, the colors are: Pink Champagne, Rouge, Orange Peel, Lemongrass, Sage, Hot Tube, Queen for a Day, Sangria.
Recognize that “Well Hey There” Die? It's brand new and matches the wooden sign in my office! We thought it would be perfect for making really cute cards, too!
You'll find it available in our die bundle releasing on October 30. Stay tuned on Tuesday, October 29 at Noon on Facebook Live, we'll reveal the die bundle with all four sets of dies that coordinate perfectly with all of our product bundles!

ahhhh…the Frosted Blossoms stamps in Sangria! Gorgeous!
The Frosted Blossoms set was created to give the feel of flowers crossed with snowflakes. The result was a classic set with the feel of Spirograph designs. You'll use this set over and over for all sorts of card making occasions.
You can't go wrong with geometric cover plates! They can be the perfect touch for a simple card or have fun with techniques like ink blending and paper piecing to create a more elaborate piece of art. The Retro Star Cover Plate has a fun, funky design and will be a classic!
