Christmas DS style: A Drunken Stampers challenge

I'm not sure that this piece is actually "DS style," but I definitely enjoyed my share of wine while creating it, so I figure that counts for this weeks' Drunken Stampers challenge.

Inevitably my favorite Christmas-themed pieces turn out with lots of blues and whites and snowflakes. I suppose this is because I look forward most to the snow and scarves and serenity that surround the Christmas season.

So, it's no surprise that as I write this I'm not nearly as thrilled by my card as I am by the foot or more of fresh snow that has been falling for the past 24 hours.

Strings of lights glow from the eaves and jingle bells ring every time we walk past the hall garland. Color reflects on the snow and the windows and the glittery baubles everywhere.

Take a minute to enjoy the season, and then put that joy into your very own creation! We can't wait to see how your DS style Christmas looks!


  1. Those are my favorite colors for Christmas too and the hush fresh falling snow brings makes my heart sing. It doesn't often happen where I live but they say it might tonight. Wonderful card you have created. I hope you have a magical Christmas!

  2. If you drank wine while making it, it's DEFINITELY Drunken Stampers style! Plus, it's just super-duper gorgeous! I tend to make all my holiday stuff blue and white and snowflakey, so I get where you're coming from. But, we've just gotta bust out of our style every now and then, and you did it wonderfully!

    Enjoy your snowy day! I think that same storm is heading toward us, and I can't wait!


  3. Tracy love the blues and whites and snowflakes! Any style is drunken stamper style! :) Although I'd have to concur with Linda! LOL

    Love it!
    Send the snow my way! I could use a couple of snowy days!



  4. Gorgeous colour combination, super card.

  5. Beautiful card and such a great design....and the taste of wine in the mouth is an experience to be
    Wishing a very happy christmas and a joyful new year. Hugs Annette x

  6. Love this card, well done! Glad to hear the wine was good! lol!
    p.s. I used multi medium matte to adhere the paper to the tin, to answer your question! lol!
