Walking in a Winter Wonderland...

My goodness, time flies at this time of year. There is so much to do before Christmas, but there's still time to make a few cards and this month we are making it easy for you at Stamping Sensations. Share one of your handmade Christmas cards with the theme of "Winter Wonderland"and you could win a fabulous prize from Stamps by Chloe. Before you head on over to our challenge blog to see my teamies' wonderful creations, here's a little inspiration from yours truly...


The background uses the new distress spray stains. Texture paste is added through a stencil to make the trees, and the deer in the background stamped. The foreground deer is diecut from adhesive cork which gives a fabulous texture, and to finish it off I added one of my decorated wooden snowflakes. Have fun making your cards and we can't wait to see what you create.


  1. Shopping list at the ready here Maddy, new distress stains, adhesive cork.....s much for promising no new stash until the New Year ! To be fair I have been contemplating the spray stains as I am told the colours are even stronger that Dylusions which I love.

    As for your card, a sheer delight and perfect Winter Wonderland.

    Have a lovely Sunday.
