Penguin Christmas….

I’m very pleased with how this card came out, especially since I wasn’t happy with my choice of colors. I love it when a card has such an unexpected “Happy Ending.”

The image is called “Penguin Willie Snow Day” and is by digital artist Janice Cullen Collyer and is on sale right now.  She has a really cute choice of Penguin images that are perfect for winter or Christmas Cards. You can find her images at the Scrapper’s Delight Digi Store.

The pattern paper was a scrap from a Disney Paper Pack from last year called “Disney All Seasons Mega Pad.” It covers all the holidays through-out the year and uses some very interesting color combos.

The dies I used are Wonky Ovals, Icicles, and Merry Christmas, which are all Die-namics by My Favorite Things. I covered the Icicle border with Zig “Wink of Stella” Clear Brush Glitter Pen, and I also dabbed some Ranger “Stardust Stickles” on the snowflakes.  I dotted the image and card with white watercolor paint to make it look like falling snow.

Save The Date…

For my next Christmas Card I couldn’t resist using this month’s free Kenny-K Santa Stud stamp. It’s for a very good friend of mine and I’m sure she’ll love it. (Who wouldn’t!)

I wanted to make a very simple stamped card but it took me forever! My mind has a hard time doing “simple.” LOL. I colored the image with my Copic Markers and set the sentiment on the computer.  The other words are done with the “Bottle Cap” Letters Die from Die-namics by My Favorite Things. The Scalloped Curved Border is also from MFT.

The Pattern Paper was a scrap and the Twine was from my stash.

Merry Christmas…

Our weather has cooled off and now it’s beginning to feel like winter and the Holiday Season.  I’ll be getting as many Christmas Cards done as I can and I want to use as many different stamps as I can.  I never do things the easy way. LOL.

On this card I used an older Pure Innocence Stamp from My Favorite Things.  I’ve loved these stamps since they first came out and were carried by our local Scrapbook store at the mall.  At the time I didn’t know that the company was local and that within a few years they would open a retail store by me. Now I love all their products, especially their new 6×6 paper line.

I’ve colored this image with my Copic Markers and used a MFT “Merry Christmas” Die-namics Die.  I used the leftover park from the die and placed it over a piece of Pattern Paper that was in my scrap box.

I also followed Sketch #2 in MsWipz’s Monthly Challenge in the Crafting Circle Sketch Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by to see me.

A Pink Birthday…..

I’ve had this “A Day For Daisies” image for quite awhile and I thought I’d color it up in one of my very favorite color combos…pink and green.

I’ve colored her with my Copic Markers.  All the pattern paper is from a stack by My Favorite Things called “Tiny Check Brights” 6×6 Paper Pack. The Happy Birthday sentiment is stamped with MFT’s coordinating ink called Razzle Berry.

Thanks for stopping by.

Tree Trimmer…

I’ve had this set of cute “Draco” images, which are done by Digital Artist Janice Cullen Colliers of Scrapper’s Delight, for several months now and when I saw it was her new “Friday Freebie,” I couldn’t resist using him on my next Christmas card. He’s “Christmas Draco 2” and will available for the entire month of Dec.

I should mention that he started out as a Christmas card, but the finished product turned out quite big so I plan to use him on the front of a gift bag.  Now I just have to find a white one…and I think I’ll also make a small matching gift tag.

This time I have colored the image with my Prisma Pencils.  Since I used a very thin computer paper to print the image on, I opted not to use the Gamsol with the pencils.  I think it’s the first image that I’ve ever colored this way and to be honest, I’m not sure if I like it or not.

The pattern papers are from a stack called “Snow Day” by “The Paper Studio” and is one that I bought last year at Hobby Lobby.  I still love this red and turquoise color combination. I used a Corner Die by Die-namics from My Favorite Things, and the Letter Dies are by ART-C and have matching stamps.
