Christmas penguins in red, white and blue

Hello and welcome.

The colour challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week is to use red, white and blue.  I thought these pretty penguins fitted the bill perfectly …

I used 3 shades of blue and teamed it with real red, with splashes of white for a snowy look. I just love these adorable penguin images from Mama Elephant…

The sentiments are by Mama Elephant too…

I popped them up on some foam tape for a little dimension…

I hope you’ve been inspired to join the challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week.

There is a DT call too, so if you fancy being part of this wonderful team of designers, hop on over to take part.

Enjoy your weekend

More holiday decorations

Hello and welcome.

It’s a brand new month and we have a new hostess over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.  As always, the first challenge of the month is a sketch.  Here’s my take on it …

The Christmas lights dies by Spellbinders are just gorgeous.  I cut the lights in melon mambo, pink pirouette and granny apple green card, all by Stampin Up, and adhered them to plain white card to show the highlights.  The tops of the lights and the string were cut from silver card by Sizzix.

I matted and layered Christmas dsp from my stash and pool party card and popped this up with foam tape onto a 6″ square white base card.

The sentiment is by Mama Elephant.

Finally, I added crystal effects by Stampin Up to the lights to give them a shiny look.

I hope you’ve been inspired to join the challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. We also have a Design Team call out, so if you fancy being part of our wonderful design team, hop on over to the blog to learn more.

Enjoy your weekend
