With the seasons changing (kinda, its still hot-ish here), it gets me thinking of making Christmas/ winter cards! This one was so fun to make. Also, the sentiment is kind of versatile, so you could send it out for Christmas or just for fun.
I started with Distress Inking the background in Tumbled Glass. Then, using Heidi Swapp's Confetti stencil, I added the circles to create a snowy scene. I used a gel pen to outline the circles as well, just to help them stand out.
For the snow, I just tore several pieces of white cardstock and layered them. I tucked our little penguin friend in between a few of the layers. He was stamped and embossed, then colored in with more Distress Ink. My sentiment was stamped as well, and layered on with a few labels I cut with my Sizzix.
Finally, to finish it off, I added some Stickled to the tops of the snowbanks and to the penguin's hat. A little shimmer always looks good!!

They want to see what our favorite stamping techniques are! I have too many favorites to pick just one, but this card includes embossing. First time I saw heat embossing I thought it was magic, and I still love using that technique!
So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
