Christmas Penguins - Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 7th of July, 2017

For the next two weeks at Winter Wonderland, we are hosted by ME!!
I have chosen the theme of "Christmas Penguins"

So we want to see anything that features a penguin or two that would fit right into Christmas!

Please remember that it is Christmas Projects only.

So here is my card:

I have used three of the Kitty Bee Designs stamps:

I joined them together in my Silhouette Cameo software (yes it is working now after I upgraded the software!) then I used my Silhouette Cameo to fussy cut the image after I had printed it on X-Press It card stock.

I have then coloured the image with the following Copics Markers:
  • black - C5, C7, C9
  • white - C00, C0
  • red - R32, R35, R37
  • yellow - Y17, YR16
  • white of Santa hat - C00, clear Wink of Stella
  • gold buckle - Y28, clear Wink of Stella
  • buttons on Santa - Y28
  • reindeer antlers - E44, E47, E49
  • reindeer ears - E51, E55, E57
  • star - Y28, clear Wink of Stella
  • red nose - R32, R35, R37, white gel pen
  • bell - Y28, clear Wink of Stella
  • holly - YG13, YG17, R32, R35, R37, white gel pen
  • background - BG000, BG01

I have adhered the coloured image to a white card from Envelope Solutions.
Then finished with a piece of Washi tape from manzawa across the top for my sentiment.

We are sponsored this fortnight by Kitty Bee Designs, who are offering one non-coloured digi to the lucky winner.

"Aloha! My name is Ruth, and I'm the owner/illustrator of Kitty Bee Designs, out of beautiful Hawaii. After a long day of staring at numbers, doodling at night was my way of relaxing. I have always been a "card maker at heart" and a "paper hoarder" but could never find that "perfect" rubber stamp design. Kitty Bee Designs was created to fill the need for simple and whimsical stamp designs. These stamps were specifically made to bring a smile to the creator and receiver of these cute stamp designs. I hope you enjoy them as much as we (the lovely design team) do here at Kitty Bee Designs.

We offer all of our images in digital format and some even make it to limited-run clear stamps!! You can find our images in our Etsy Store and wonderful inspiration + super fun challenges on our blog!! Come swing by and say hello!!!"
