Frosty Penguin Valentine

In case you haven't heard, we've been having a little snow here in New England.  Okay, little actually means several feet of the wintery white stuff.  Naturally, my thoughts have turned to polar bears and penguins with the arctic chill in the air.  Hence, a penguiny Valentine for this year!


They are sweet!  Of course, my pink insanity has passed and I am back to my usual non-pink and non-red Valentine's. This one is all sorts of blue - to signify that you can still have warmth of spirit in wintery climes.  Boy, is it cold!  Even my penguins have bundled up this year!


Stamps: Penguin Pair (Stampendous) and Je t'aime from Floriculture (Rogue Redhead Designs)
Paper: Night of Navy and Whisper White (Stampin' Up!) and a designer paper scrap (American Crafts) from by basket
Copic Markers: B00, B21, B23, B24, C1, C5, C7, YR02
Tools: circle cutter (Creative Memories)

Hope your day is filled with lots of love and warmth!

Circling Around Mardi Gras

With Mardi Gras around the corner (Feb 17th), I decided to get Carnival Dreams back out so that I could play along with all the fun!



For this card, I decided to have fun with the colors of Mardi Gras - gold, purple and green. I colored each of the jester hats in these colors but with different patterns. I matched my hats with three circles of scrap designer paper in the same color combination.

Kissing Cuties

I've finally broken down and made an actual pink Valentine!  Yup, I know.  Weird, right?  These two youthful sweethearts just made me cave to the popular color scheme of the holiday.  Of course, I did add some green just to keep it a little bit like me.



I wanted to really showcase these two so I kept the layout very simple!  I figured that using the Keep It Simple Stamper rule was perfect for a Kissing couple!


Stamp: couple from A Little Kiss (S.W.A.L.K. - available at Rogue Redhead Designs)
Paper: Rose Red (Stampin' Up!), White Xpress It, various pink scraps from my scrap basket

Another Birthday for the Roguette!

This year, I decided on an image to commemorate my daughter's newly acquired skating skills.  She started lessons in March of last year and, by November, she was on the school hockey team.  Pretty cool, huh?  Gotta love a kid with a mission!



For this card, I stamped and colored the pup first and then masked off the image with a repositionable note.  I stamped the snowflakes from A Winter's Tale all around the open white area with medium blue.  Next, I sponged some light blue over the snow flakes and then sponged the medium blue around the edges of the card and the mask.  Voila!  Snow storm!  For the final step, I created the ice that the pup is gliding upon with more copic coloring.

Stamps: Ice Dance (Penny Black) and snowflakes from
Beatrix Potter's A Winter's Tale (available at Rogue Redhead Designs)
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Brown Sugar - Anything Goes

Card Mania Challenge - Add Some Red

Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes

Hope everyone is having fun in the snow!  Here in New England, I think we would rather have slightly less snow!
