Spent some time today coloring and joining in for another day with Kathy's 30 day color challenge over at the The Daily Marker. Also, joing over at Simon Says Stamp Wenesday challenge of using Christmas Critters.
I had lots of fun coloring these cute little penguin and seal with their Santa's hat from the Winter Friends set of Pretty Pink Posh along with coloring Poinsetta's and more using the Mistletoe & Holly set from Essentials by Ellen that I created two shaker cards today.
For this card, I'm using one of my favorites, the Stitched Duo 3 and cut the window out to create a bigger window for this shaker. Since I love adding shimmer to Christmas cards, I used Pearl White Shimmering cardstock from Crafter's companion and stamped the Holiday sentiment.
Next, I pulled out the Twine and Bow die along with some Gold foil and wrapped it on top. For the bow itself, I die cut 3 white ones and stacked them together to give it some dimension before adding the gold bow on top.
For this second shaker, I used another favorite of mine, the Storybook 1 die and love how you can use it so many different ways. Vertical, Horizontal, or even alter it by cutting one of the windows to make it bigger.
All of the images where colored using my copic markers and than used the Coordinating die from the Winter Friends set and the Coordinating die from the Mistletoe & Holly set to help me cut them out fast.
Again, had lots of fun coloring and creating these two shakers to add to my collection of Christmas cards!
