Here is what our brilliant Design Team has made for this week:
Jo used buttons on her card, which is always a nice touch. Like these buttons? Check out Kioshi buttons by Basic Grey! To browse our complete collection: all buttons!
Martine used a gorgeous poinsettia flower on her card. Tim Holtz and Prima joined together to make Poinsettias (leaves and flowers included in this tin - score!!). I also like the Willow with Lantern Stamp (by Whiff of Joy - expected to come in any day now). Like the "Christmas Wishes" sentiment? For something similar, we have Holiday Wishes by Hero Arts - it's a really great variety of holiday sentiments!
Chris used a superb embossing folder by Cuttlebug called - you guessed it - Stars. Like the pink and white star paper? Me too!! It's a lot like Magnolia's Card Stock Paper Pink Starlit. (Pink Starlit also comes in the Fairytale Paper Pack)
Lols used a sweet stamp by Penny Black called Sweet Thing! I really like the embellishments in the top right corner too - these are Robin's Nest Dew Drops in the color Purple Hair (hehe). There's so much to like about this card, but I'll just pick one more specialty item - the flower-shaped buttons. I can't get enough of shaped buttons. Try Flower Card Buttons by Hero Arts for a close look.
Debby embossed the white background behind Tilda - such a subtle, pretty accent. It's a great additive to a Christmas card - try Cuttlebug's D'vine Swirls. I really like the punch around the image too. For a different, (but in my opinion equally as attractive), punch, try Modern Garland by Martha Stewart.
Christine used a Magnolia stamp called Lace Banner which is super because it comes blank so you can add whatever sentiment you want! Did you know what Magnolia has a whole collection of flower and leaf embellishments? For something like what Christine used, check out the Purple flowers.
Created by Jackie!Jackie used pearl embellishments on her card. If you need them, we have Medium Accent Pearls by Hero Arts.
(PS-we're glad to have you again!!)

Domi's owl stamp is so cute!! Penny Black makes this stamp and it's called Nocturne. For a tag like this, check out the Manila 100 Bulk Pack!
Jane used gorgeous papers!! If you want something very similar, try Cappella by Basic Grey. I love how she colored the Tilda image as well. If you want an effect like this, try Copic Markers!
Marcea's image (by C.C. Designs) has sparkly wings that look so pretty! For this effect, you can use embossing powder and a heat tool. Might I recommend Holographic (an embossing powder by Ranger) and the Precision Heat Embossing Tool.
Heather used some exquisite lace ribbon on her card. We now have brand new ribbon by Hero Arts - try Lace Ribbon.
