More Christmas Cheer!

Happy Friday folks! Hope everyone is getting through this crazy holiday season okay! Newsflash, only 21 days until Christmas - Eeeek! I still have to shop for my hubby and wrap everything, not to mention finish my Christmas cards and mail them!

Today, I have 2 cards to share with you that are previously released PCS digi images. I loved some of these images so much, I had to use them again! My first card will be available in my Etsy store sometime today.
My first card is the Kissing Penguins image.

I used some more Eskimo Kisses DP from Basic Grey - this stack has been great because of the diverse colors. I paired it with Old Olive and Riding Hood Red. The 2 red snowflakes are Martha Stewart punches and the lg. green one is a Marvy punch and the smallest one is a Clever Lever punch. Of course, I could not skip using my MS fern punch, so I trimmed it a bit to mimic the mistletoe and glue it over it after tying some red crochet thread around it. The sentiment comes from PTI's 2009 Holiday Tags Set. I used SU's word window punch for the sentiment. Lastly, I added some red blingy-bling to the centers of the snowflakes.Here is a close-up of our smooching couple! I drew in the ground using a Copic Multiliner pen and then added lots of Martha Stewart Snow Glitter to the ground. Ms. Penguin has some Stickles on her cuff and around the rim of her hood. All girls need a little sparkle! For the background, I colored it solid with BG10 and then roughly blended it with my colorless blender to make a blustery-looking scene. Then I went back and made some snow dots, again with the colorless blender.

Here is card #2 - Hootie Pie - Santa! I pulled out some Basic Grey Blitzen for this card and stitched around the edges of the candy cane paper. Riding Hood Red and Whisper White look great with these papers. The digi image was printed on PTI's Stampers Select paper and then colored with Copics. I added some Liquid Glass (CTMH) to his eyes and some Martha Stewart Glitter to his hat cuff and pom-pom. The snowflake punches are from Marvy and Clever Lever. I punched them and then stuck them face down in a Martha Stewart Glue Pad and covered them in glitter as well. The sentiment is from PTI's 2009 Holiday Tag Collection. I inked the printed image and sentiment in Riding Hood Red ink. Here is a close-up of this Hootie-Pie! He is so cute!

I have to run, I have a very busy day today and my 4 yr old still has walking pneumonia and wants me to be his playmate since he is not at school! Hope you have a fab-o weekend! :) ~Tori
