A Charming Winter

Hello, everyone! It's release day over at Purple Onion Designs! It's a new holiday/winter collection from the amazing Stacey Yacula called A Charming Winter. Michele is offering the entire collection (16 images) and three bonus sentiments for a discounted price of $75 until November 5th. Don't forget to check them out here! I have two cards to share with you today.

First up is the adorable Walter! He is a little skating penguin (or penwig or pengling). Seriously, how can you resist this little cutie! =)

I paired Walter with Carolyn Draws JOY.  =) The images are stamped on a PTI Rustic White card base and colored with Copic markers.

Glossy Accents was added to the letters J and Y for a little texture.

I combined Snow Cabin and Dusting of Snow on my second card to create the scene.

The images are stamped on watercolor paper and colored with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor. Rock Candy Distress Stickles was added to the snowbanks for a bit of subtle shine.

The sentiment die is from Christmas Words 2 die set by Paper Smooches and it's also coated with Rock Candy Distress Stickles.

That's all from me. Don't forget to check out the new collection here and find out what the other design team members created using the new stamps over at Purple Onion Designs Blog! =)

Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!

That little penguin is the cutest Alice. I love how you grounded him and left all that beautiful white space. I love the cottage scene with your die cute sentiment.
