Hybrid Holiday Card

the current jingle belles prompt is to create a hybrid holiday card and there’s a free festive digi kit available from one of their sponsors; visit their blog for more details.

Buddly Crafts Penguin

i watercoloured this cute penguin from a buddly crafts clear stamp set, christmas buddies, but it is also available as a digi. my printer doesn’t like the heavier watercolour paper so i don’t use a lot of digis; besides, there’s just something about the old fashioned process that i like.

my digi elements are papers from buddly crafts, both created by owner Kim: Pretty Classic Christmas (trees) and Cottage Collection (yellow).

the tab is die cut from my favourite new banner die – Joy! Crafts Cutting Die – Labels & Tags; the foam on the die makes the banners pop right out on their own, which makes me happy. i finished it off with a self adhesive red gem.

the sentiment, from the same set, is stamped in green and i added stickles to the snow on it, the tree and to create dots to the scarf and present.

i’m also playing along with:
Christmas at Sweet Stampin – cute
Cutie Pie Challenge – challenge #87 layer it up…but keep it cute
Top Tip Tuesday – animals
Wags ‘n Whiskers – No. 154 Lots of Layers

thanks for popping by.

  1. It’s cute as can be. Love your little fun penquin clutching his pressie on that snow hill. Like the dp layout behind him too. One of mine printers is very fussy about papers. Haven’t tried the w/c paper, but the cheapie one I bought likes vellum & the quality printer doesn’t. Go figure. Will have to test the w/c paper. It’s fun to use digis, and they are so much easier to store than ‘real’ stamps. I can usually find files faster than I can find stamps. DeeDee’s Digis has so many great designs, pre-colored and line art that you choose the colors. Easy to work with as well. Great sponsor. TFS
