My last Christmas card design....

Today I played with a mix of GinaK and Hanna Stamps. I think I have found a color combo that I love for Christmas this year. I'm a blue person can't you tell.



I love most shades of blue. But this combo just calls to me every time I use it. I used soft sky, blue bayou, and tempting turquoise. I used stamps from Hanna Stamps set Tis the Season the snowflakes from this set. I like these stamps that have been released so far...

I also used my GinaK penguin stamp for my main image. I think penguins are so fun to use on a Christmas card. I colored him in using my prismacolor pencils and gamsol again. I also used my cuttlebug embossing folder spots and dots. I got most of my embossing folders from All that Scraps. This was a fun card to create and I'm sure some of these designs will be made again next year.

Thank you for visiting all my fun Christmas cards the last week and half. I hope to be back soon with some new creations. However tomorrow my mom will be having some surgery and I don't know how much free time I will have tomorrow but hope to be back by the weekend. Have a great afternoon.

Supplies for this card can be found here. I also used the Sketch Challenge over on SCS today for this card SC153.

I love the blue! Last year, I made pink and purple Christmas cards. Sometimes, it's nice to use non-traditonal colors. I think these are adorable!

This is really beautiful. I love those colors together - all the different hues of blues (hey, that rhymes!). Thanks for the great eye-candy!
