Cool Yule

Hi everyone!
I am playing along with a couple of challenges today.  If any of you know me well, you know I make Christmas cards all year long so you will not stop seeing Christmas cards on my blog.  :)  I have mailed out all my cards for this year and already have a pretty good head start for next year. 

Here are the challenges:  I am using the sketch from the SSS Flickr challenge #8 and Christmas Card Challenges is looking for Penguins.  I absolutely LOVE these penguins from Clearly Whimsy Stamps.  Isn't that hat awesome?!!!!

On the pink background piece I used embossing paste through the stencil Zig Zag Dots by Simon Says Stamp.  The banner is cut using the Wrapped Mailing Label by SSS.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Stamps:  Penguin Fun (Clearly Whimsy Stamps)
Ink:  Versafine black
Paper:  White, Black, Melon Mambo
Accessories:  Stitched Circles (Lil' Inker), Penguin fun dies (Clearly Whimsy), Wrapped Mailing Label & Zig Zag Dots stencil (SSS), Embossing paste

  3. OMGosh, this is an adorable card Kristie! I love it! Merry Christmas!!! Hugs, Brenda

  4. I love that you make Christmas cards all though the year! I think of so many ideas and feel sad to have to choose one design for that year...duh, I could be enjoying the process and playing with several designs...thanks for the idea! However, how do you keep your adhesive "fresh" when making cards ahead and storing them. I have had a problem with edges popping up or buckling after storing for a few months. I generally use Tombow tape runner or liquid 3 in 1. Do you encounter this problem?

  5. This is just adorable Kristie! I have this cute stamp set waiting under the tree for me to open on Christmas morning! Can't wait!

  6. This is just so cute.
    Merry Christmas.
