Deer, trees, and snow

I created a fun card that will work for several challenges.

First challenge is Mod Squad with the animal themed holiday. I made this deer to have a red nose like Rudolph. This is definitely a Christmas themed card with the lights and red nose. I didn’t have a suitable Merry Christmas that would really fit, so I went with the greetings from the stamp set. This stamp set is Snow Wonderful by Your Next Stamp.

Second Challenge is Double D with trees. This evergreen tree was blended with a stencil from Newton’s Nook, called Evergreen. I cut a small portion of the trees out to use on this card.

The Third challenge is Make My Monday Challenge with Cute Christmas. I think this image with the girl and her reindeer are cute. It was fun to color.

The Fourth challenge is Global Design Project with Christmas. This card will be mailed for Christmas.

The snowflake background was created with a die from The Stamps of Life. I used and glitter cardstock placed on a blue background. Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops were added to the snowflakes, the tree, the lights, the reindeer nose, and the greeting.

This was fun card to create. I was thrilled to find several challenges to share this with. Thanks for looking and reading this long post.

Penguins Wobble but they Don’t Fall Down

Remember the Weebles commercial? I think the not falling down applies to any critter one can make wobble.

Birthday Wobble Penguin

Hang on because here comes another.

Penguins wobbling in the Snow

The technique this week on Split Coast Stampers is to use a wobbler on your card. I have had wobblers sitting in my work area for about a month and just needed a bit of time to create with them. These penguins came from The Stamps of Life. Both sets arrived in my house during November. I stamped and colored all of them, but never managed to make a card. I need 3 cards to send immediately, so penguins to the rescue!

The second card has glittery snow, as the MISTI challenge for December is to add snow to your card. It took me a while to think of something, but finally remembered about creating snow by making a simple cut in paper. After adding the snow, I remembered that I have glitter. I used the quicky glue pen to add the glitter to. I love these penguins. I hope to have time to create a few more cards with these fun critters.
