For this challenge I created a wintery Christmas card using the Lawn Fawn – Winter Penguin stamp set along with the matching Winter Penguin die.  I stamped the penguin in Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It blending paper and colored him with Copics:
C5, C4, C2
W2, W1
R39, R37, R35
G28, G07, G03
YR18, YR14, YR12

I stamped the little snowflakes from the same stamp set with a light blue ink onto some X-Press It blending paper.  I cut that piece out using a die from the Lawn Fawn – Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables die set.  I also cut a partial sheet of light blue from the Lawn Fawn – Peace, Joy, Love 6×6 paper pad with the same die to use as ice.  I stamped ‘happy’ and ‘holidays’ from the same Winter Penguin stamp set.  The little red heart was cut out using the smallest die from the Lawn Fawn – Hearts die set.

The red background piece is from the same Lawn Fawn paper pad and is cut out using a die from the Lawn Fawn – Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables die set.

The card base is the Lawn Fawn – Navy Woodgrain Notecard.

Everything was adhered using the Crafter’s Companion – Adhesive Runner and dimensional foam adhesive.

I added a bow using the MarkerPOP – Sweet Holiday baker’s twine.  I don’t think this twine could be any more perfect for Christmas!  To finish everything off I added some Wink of Stella Glitter Pen in Clear to the penguin, snowflakes, and heart.  I also added some Glossy Accents to the penguin’s beak and the heart for some shine.

My project for today shows lots of green using the Paper Smooches – Blossoming Buds stamp set.  I stamped everything, besides ‘lovely’, in Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It Blending Paper.  I used every green marker that I had to color everything.  The Copic colors are:
G28, G24, G21, G20, G07, G05, G03, G02, G00
YG25, YG23, YG21, YG09, YG07, YG05, YG03

The green and white patterned paper on the card base is from the Doodlebug – Kraft in Color (Kraft) 6×6 paper pad.

I adhered everything using the Crafter’s Companion – Adhesive Runner and foam dimensional adhesive.

I wanted to add a little something extra so I added some CraftKin – Lemonade baker’s twine around the top layer.  I didn’t want it to cover the stamping so I poked two holes on either side of the image and fed the twine around it.

The small sequins are the Pretty Pink Posh – Clear 4mm Cupped.  I also added some green rhinestones from my stash.

To finish everything off I added some sparkle to all the coloring with the Wink of Stella Glittler Pen in Clear.
