Caroling Penguins

It's Monday, and time for another Rubbernecker Stamps project. I am back with another Christmas card this week using the super cute "Caroling Penguins" stamp and the "Silent Night" background stamp.

Caroling Penguins
I didn't need to do too much colouring with this stamp. Just the hats and scarves, and I used C3, C1, and C00 to add some shadow to the penguins white bellies, which you can just barely see here in the picture. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the white ribbon is from May Arts, the ornament die cut is from Stampin' Up, as is all the DP. The Silent Night background stamp I stamped on red paper with Versa Mark watermark ink and then clear  heat embossed it. A better picture from an angle so you can see it is below:

Winter Wonderland

Today is the start of a new challenge at Aurora Wings, and the Stella DT is challenging you to create a project with a "Winter Wonderland" theme. 


I have wanted to make a shadow box card for quite awhile. I have had my Cameo for a couple of years, and have done a pitiful job learning how to use it. This was the opportunity I needed to brush the dust off of it and put it to work! I used two Aurora Wings images for this: "Christmas Lights Sprite" and "Christmas Tree Sprite".


I used the 5x7 Reindeer Shadow Box Card by Lori Whitlock from the Silhouette store, and I simply placed my Christmas Tree Sprite over the reindeer cut out. You can't even see a hint of him, but it gave me a base to adhere the tree to. I almost trimmed the reindeer off, but realized just in time that my tree would probably be flopping around in the card if I did that. 😉 I coloured the images with Copics. I added some glossy accents and Frosted Lace Stickles to the tree. You can see the close up below: 


The wood snowflake embellishments are from South Ridge Trading, the silver glitter snowflakes are from a Martha Stewart punch using some scrap glitter paper from a previous project. I used Versa Mark and some opaque Snow embossing powder to make my wood snowflakes white.

Please stop by the Aurora Wings Challenge blog and join in with your take on our "Winter Wonderland" theme. Please check out the RULES for the challenge, and while you're on the blog, visit my fellow Stella DT member's blogs to leave them some love for their projects. 💗💗

Ellynn

'Tis the season for parties!!  And since it is, I did a funny little card with "Ellynn" and the "Quit Drinking" sentiment from Rubbernecker Stamps. I think I have had enough parties already this Christmas season and it's not even December yet!
Ellynn
I used some discontinued papers from Stampin' Up, and coloured the image with Copics. This was a fun card to make, and I used a sketch from my friend Cristena (who really likes my wine bottle prop ;-) ) to put it all together.
