Whimsy Penguins

 

Hello,
Today I'm sharing one of my Christmas cards, so my friends and family will all receive a version of this, but with a different image.

This year I'm using the cute whimsy penguins. My colours are purple, green, burgundy and ivory, matted on gold. Each card has a different image and embellishments.

For this one I used one of the digi stamps, this one comes with another in a set. I coloured it with Promarkers.
Embellishment wise, I used pine cones, some burgundy and purple roses and some berries along with gold leaves. I then finished with a sentiment. 

Challenges:
I love ALL animals but this time I chose penguins. I love how each penguin seems to have their own personality.

Crafty Bella

 

Hello,
Today I have a birthday card to share I made for a crafty blog friend. Her birthday was earlier this month so I know I can now share it.

I love using my circle dies, they are my most used dies wether it is just for stamping an image or creating a sketch like this. I think having circles rather than straight lines all the time is nice for a change, plus you can showcase different patterned papers without it getting overwhelming.
I used some studio light papers, even embossed a few to add texture. I added sequins, ribbon and a bow to embellish.
The image is Calissta loves to craft, an uptown girl by stamping bella, coloured with Promarkers. I use this image a lot for crafty friends birthdays.
