CDS Sneak Peek - Christmas Blessings

Welcome back to day 2 of the CDStamps sneak peeks! I know that you are all just as excited as I am for multiple postings! Hold onto your horses ladies because I have 3 cards to show you today :) The first one of the day is called Christmas Blessings and its a sentiment set perfect for the holidays. This set will be available on October 1st and you can see the entire set here.

This card really did start out with great intentions...then I think that I got a wee bit carried away with the rhinestones! lol You don't really notice them when you first look at the card...that is until you see it in broad daylight and you are blinded. What can I was my first time using the rhinestone sticker flourishes!

Now lets forget about the blinding bling and concentrate on these lovely chunky glitter snowflakes. This is a technique that I borrowed from the fabulous Anna Wight but instead of the glass glitter, I used Martha Stewart Chunky Ice glitter and added some vintage looking brads...I'm accident prone and I'm thinking that decision to not use the glass glitter was a benefit to my health care insurance! They can thank me later ;o)

Don't forget to swing on by a little later in the day for a couple more sneak peeks and until then, pop by and visit these lovely ladies and their awesome creations!
