Here's some easy ideas to get you started!

You don't have to do winter themes just be sure to use those beautiful blues.  You can get into patterns for a fun card and fresh card!  Here we layered coordinating papers and paired them with this sweet sailor from the Beach Babes plate.

Go simple and elegant with a nice clean card!  This card used some simple framing to showcase this Hugo quote.

Stamps: Cosmos Blossom and quote from  from Floricultre  and
bee from Getting Grizzly  (Rogue Redhead Designs)

This sample is both clean and simple and contains lots of great layers except this time the layers are all ink.  The cat was masked and an oval backdrop was inked in using a reverse mask from a punched oval.  Over that, two backgrounds - the mini swirl background from Candy Kisses and the Almanac background from Relish Reading - stamped with the same ink that was sponged giving the oval a more complex but subtle look.
