We also have some more inspiration for you today. Samantha created this stunner of a shaped card using the Smiling Snowflakes set. The colors - SWOON! The combo of techniques - eek! That cards rocks! The sentiment was created withs tamps from Cool Buddies and Penguin Party.

For the next cards I used some of our stencils with the stamps. I used the Nautical Stars stencil with the cute snowman from Cool Buddies and a sentiment from Smiling Snowflakes. I love how the stars seem to be gleaming. :)

Thanks for stopping by and playing along. Your lovely comments and support make us happy each and every day. I am thankful to have the best readers in the world!


  1. Hi, thanks for the chance to win a candy.

    I looked around the design teams blogs and I love Sam's embossed snowflakes and the water drops on the background. It looks so awesome and I like embossing on vellum very much. :)
    Linda's coloring is perfect. She has such a good eye for colors.
    Kelly's cards are so colorful, but still clean and simple.
    the links to Anja's and Anni's blogs are broken, but I found them anyway.
    Anja's CAS cards are really great. She has an eye for composition. I envy that. :D
    About Anni's style I can say: I love her watercoloring and color choices. I follow her blog quite some while now and I simply like the style, just like yours, Christine.
    Although my style is different, I like all those CAS cards. I often have a hard time stopping myself with papers, embellishments and I don't know what else... :D

    Greetings, Natalie

  10. Hallo Christine, ich freue mich das jetzt auch noch ein paar deutsche Texte zu deinen süssen Stempel dazu kommen(okay, diese sind jetzt in Englisch, aber ein paar habe ich ja schon auch auf Deutsch gesehen in deinem Shop). Ich mag deinen Stil sehr gern und freu mich die tollen Stempel ganz unkompliziert erwerben zu können. Ich mag das nicht so gern über den großen Teich bestellen und deutsche Texte sind ja auch noch rar.
    Mach weiter so, ich freu mich auf alles was da noch kommt von dir!
    Ich bin ein Fan ♥
    Liebe Grüße, Jessica

  18. On Sam's blog... I love the surprise use of snowflakes in warm colours for a warm drink...It just kinda plays with my head LOL;
    Anika's : Love the use of kraft...the cp works so well on it, and the small stamps for the bg work so well!
    Anja's card makes great use of the play of texture and depth with those repeating stars ( and on the snowflake and star shaped card too!)
    The DT girls are doing a brilliant job!
