I want to start using some of my stamps, that all i do is avoid, as i'm not sure what to do with them !!, so i had a bit of a play and came up with this, stamp : Penny Black - 'Christmas At My Window / 4360K / 2013', the window seal  and snow at the bottom is : Glamour Dust, the sentiment (came free with a magazine) : Penny Black - 'Wonder Collection Transparent Set / 2014', the brick work (embossing folder) Marianne D - 'DF3403', the trellis : Memory Box - 'Tessatina Border', the holly : Marianne D - 'LR0244', berries : Doodlebug - 'Crushed Velvet / Ladybug Flock', the snow : Stampendous - 'Chunky White Embossing Enamel'.

Stempelgarten  - where Challenge No: 45 is 'Winter Wonderland'

Great inspiration for Rudolph day Sam and well done on the GDT spot. I full plan to make more effort to join in this year as last year I never managed to take part as often as I hoped.

Your card is also perfect for our Stamping Sensations theme, many thanks for joining in.

This is adorable, Sam! Darling stamp! Congrats on your GDT spot!

Brenda said...

This card is adorable Sam! I love the brick front of the "house", the trellis going up the side in the snow, but mostly I love that sweet image! I love the PB images, but never felt I'd be able to do them justice so don't buy them. I sure do love looking at what everyone else can do with them! Thanks for visiting me! Hugs, Brenda
