Jingle your own damn bells !

Hello fellow Crafters,

It's Wednesday again an that means another challenge over at the Stampotique Designers' Challenge blog. If you participate you have the chance of winning $30,- worth of Stampotique stamps at the end of each month. You can enter one project every week. You can use any stamps but digi's are not allowed. We would love to see you use some Stampotique stamps though.
This week Gezzy set the challenge and this is what she said :

"Hi Gez here, I am delighted to be your hostess for this weeks challenge.
It's never too early to start thinking about Christmas right?!! ;-) I thought it would be nice for us to spread a wave of festive cheer throughout Blogland!
Every year I set out with good intentions and imagine a great big stack of handmade Christmas cards all ready to send out nice and early in December, in reality I think it's happened once! So, lets do it together! Dig deep and crack open the Christmas stash box early!!
This is a fun challenge, I hope you enjoy it too!
The Design Team have lots of creative inspiration to get your festive mojo ringing! Happy creating!"

Not easy to think of snow and Christmas when it is hot outside but here is mine :

I started off with a bit of Gelli print on which I did a bit of background stamping and I also doodled the snowflakes. I stamped 'Smile' on white card stock and coloured him, clear embossed him and cut him out. I decided to use a Christmas postage stamp and adhered this just behind little Smile. I placed him on some washi tape. The sentiment was stamped,  cut apart and adhered to the panel. Lastly I adhered the panel to a square card base. 

I used the following Stampotique Stamps :

Thanks for stopping by !

Hope you like it....


  1. That lovely blue certainly gives the impression of a cold frosty day, which is brightened by the red santa outfit. Great quote too, and I like how you've got a postage stamp popping out from behind.

  2. COOL background Corrie! Love the postage stamp, sheer genius! Thank you for rocking this challenge. xx

  3. The blue back ground and snow flakes make this a cool card Corrie!

  4. I have been in love with this card from the first moment I saw it in the "bullpen," Corrie! I guess, it's the sentiment that got me laughing at first, but I am still smiling at "Smile" because he is just adorable. Love the sharp contrast of those white snowflakes against your blue backdrop! A+ from me, my friend!

  5. Oh Corrie, the title of your post brought a big smile to my face already! Love this fun Christmas card!!

  6. So darn cute and I love the stamp behind him.

  7. LOL - this is too funny. The addition of the postage stamp is also great fun.
