Penguin's First Snow & Christmas Stocking

Hello, every one! Here are two projects that I made using the November releases from Whiff of Joy Stamps.


First up is a card made using Penguin's First Snow. Isn't he adorable? =)


He is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Reverse Wonky Rectangles die. I then added some Sugar Sparkly Fluff to the fur trims of his hat and earmuff.


The kraft card base is stamped with Starry Sky from Hero Arts using PTI's Fresh Snow ink. The patterned paper is from Holly Jolly Christmas 6x6 Paper Pad by Echo Park and it's cut using On The Edge Scallops die. The sentiment "tag" is cut using Cute Banners Trio die and the matching stamps are from Christmas Banners set.


My second project is an ornament/tag made using the lovely Christmas Stocking.


After coloring the image, I cut it out and mounted it on a layered "snowflake" cut using Spellbinders' Fleur De Lis (on sale at Two Peas!) die set. Sugar Sparkly Fluff is also added to the fur trims of the image.


The patterned paper is from Season's Greetings 6x6 Paper Pad by Echo Park. Some Antique Linen Distress Stickles is added to the edges of the blue "snowflake" for a little interest.

That's all for now. Have a lovely day, my friends! =)
