It's Penguining To Look A Lot Like Christmas
Good morning crafty friends! Today I'm sharing a Christmas card I made for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge.
I diecut a stitched rectangle from bristol card, sponged it with Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Ink, and spattered it with white gouache. Once dry, I adhered the panel to my card. I stamped one of the adorable penguins from the It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas stamp set and diecut it using the coordinating dienamics. I colored the penguin with copics and used a black gel pen on the eyes. I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the penguin's beak and feet, spattered the image with white gouache, and adhered the penguin to my card. I added a diecut snowflake with foam tape and then glued a white pearl to the center of the snowflake.
Penguin - C7, C5, C3; YR07, YR04, Y38; BV20, BG70; R20, R00
Hat/Scarf - R39, R37, R35; BG18, BG57, BG53; BV20, BG70

Cookies For Santa
Happy Sunday crafty friends! Today I'm sharing a Christmas card featuring one of the new clear stamp set from the Streamside Studios Etsy Shop!
This adorable stamp set is called Christmas Mice and there are several cute images included in this set. This stamp set is currently 40% off and will ship the same day you place your order! I used a diagonal stripe cover plate die from Pink and Main to create the background on my card. I also diecut an oval from red cardstock and a scalloped oval that I sponged with distress oxide inks.
I colored the images with copics and fussy cut them. I used a black gel pen on the mouse eyes and I added some highlights with a white gel pen. I adhered the images with foam tape and added a tiny diecut heart to finish my card.

Happy Friday friends! I'm sharing a fun Christmas card today featuring some sweet little snowmen from the LTTS Doodles Etsy Shop!
These adorable snowmen are from the Snowy Friends digital stamp set. I diecut a panel of bristol card and inked it with distress oxide inks. I spattered it with white paint and set it aside to dry. I used an older die from The Greeting Farm to diecut the "Santa Baby" sentiment. I diecut one sentiment from silver sparkle cardstock and two sentiments from white cardstock and glued the layers together to give the sentiment some dimension. The sentiment is really pretty but doesn't seem to sparkle much in the photo. I also diecut some silver stars and adhered the sentiment and stars to the card. I colored the snowmen with copics, fussy cut them, and adhered them with foam tape. I used a black gel pen on their eyes and I added some highlights with a white gel pen.
