Have a Cool Yule Penguins

The challenge theme at Creative Card Crew this week is


Here is my first card:

I have also combined it with Papertake's Spots and Stripes theme and
the second card uses the sketch from Sketch and Stash Challenge #22:

I've a had a great time making Christmas cards today despite feeling very much under the weather.  But after a warm bath and a nice cup of hot chocolate, I was in the mood at last to make greetings for a Cool Yule.  So much so, in fact, that I broke out perhaps one of my oldest and most favorite stamps:  Three penguins from Art Impressions.  I ordered it online from Addicted to Rubber Stamps years ago, and these three still make me smile.

Materials used for these cards:

Winter Blue Snowflakes and Winter Blue Stripes from The Paper Studio
Textured cardstock from DCWV Brights 12x12 Mat Stack
Three Penguins stamp from Art Impressions #Q-3052
Image stamped in Archival Black Ink and heat-embossed with Ranger Superfine Clear Powder (the best embossing powder I've found yet)

BIC Markit Colors:
Summer Melon, Misty Blue, Hot Aqua and Margarita Green

Edge punch and Snowflake punch from Martha Stewart
Plastic Irridescent Snowflakes from Make it Christmas (Hobby Lobby)
Lime Green brads from Spare Parts
Medium white ribbon

Thanks for visiting, Happy crafting all,
and as always have a really wonderful day!
