Some Christmas Fun to Welcome March

The current challenge over at the Jingle Belles blog is to use stickers, rub-ons or both to make your Christmas card! I guess my brain gets stuck on stamping because I had trouble getting going with this..I just couldn't wrap my mind around the stickers, LOL. I finally got in gear and made 4 cards today, 2 each of the same design.

For my first card I played along again with the sketch over at The Paper Players, as well as with Jingles Belles. As soon as I grabbed these penguins out of my stash I knew the sketch would be perfect for them! My colors on the card come right from the penguins with splashes of red, white and green!

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: sentiment from Cold Play
Paper: Basic Black, Real Red, Garden Green, Whisper White, AC Patterned Paper
Ink: Garden Green
Accessories: Stickers from Recollections, Small Oval Punch, Modern Label Punch, Real Red Ribbon, Big Shot, Snow Burst Embossing Folder, sponge, dimensionals

My second card is also about letting it snow but this time I've got a snowman in a snow globe to brighten things up, along with more traditional Christmas colors.

Supplies Used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Paper: Naturals White, Marina Mist, Whisper White, S.E.I. Glitzmas/Frosty the Snowflake
Ink: Marina Mist
Accessories: Stickers by Sandylion, Real Red Ribbon, Marina Mist Ribbon, Cuttlebug, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Snowflakes Embossing Folder, sponge
