The Winter Trio Hop


Howdy and Happy Thursday everyone!

Today some of the Catherine Pooler Designs Ambassadors have teamed up with Heffy Doodle and WOW! Embossing to share some amazing projects using a little bit of each company today!

You are going to have a blast looking at all the amazing projects so make sure to leave a COMMENT TO WIN on each blog for your chance to win some crafty goodies for our three generous companies!

I made 3 cards to share today... let's go!

I love the adorable penguins in the Heffy Doodle "Wanna Build a Snowman" stamp set so I paired him up with the cute Christmas tree and the fun "Alpine Village" stamp set from Catherine Pooler.  I loved the "Metalline Kiwi Krush" Embossing Powder from WOW!.  It has this little bit of copper sparkle in it... yum!!

For my second card, I wanted to use a monochromatic color scheme.  That beautiful church stamp is also included in the "Alpine Villages" from CP.  I did some selective stamping and used some "Mint Macaroon" Embossing Powder from WOW! to make the church shiny.  The snow, snowman and sentiment is from the fantastic "First Snow Stencil" and "Wanna Build a Snowman" stamp set from Heffy Doodle.

For my third card, I couldn't help but make a shaker card!

Here is a little peek inside!  I fussy cut out all the fun pieces to build a snowman and added them inside my shaker.  I even added some fun googley eyes to my snowman heads!

I hope I've inspired you today!  Now check out the rest of talent today...

These card's are too cute with the penguin decorating a tree and then the snowmen inside the shaker and when you move the card the snowmen move as well really cute idea

Marie-Pierre Capistran said...

Oh! I love your cards! I had trouble opening up your blog but I'm glad I persisted, it was so worth it! That scrambled snowman must be my fave... but closely followed by your monochromatic card. So clever!!! And peaceful! And I also love you happy penguins decorating his tree. So cute! Love them all! :)
