Pretty Cute Stamps November Challenge - Gift Giving!

So glad you're stopping by today to check out the November challenge at the Pretty Cute Stamps blog! This month our theme is Gift Giving. I'm really getting into the Christmas spirit since we had our first real snowfall of the season on Tuesday! I'm already humming Christmas tunes! 'Happy Holidays....'!!

This fun red striped paper in the Shimelle True Stories paper pack reminded me of candy canes so I decided to create this cute Christmas card using the Cool Chick, Oh, Christmas Tree, and Christmas Cheer stamp sets. I heat embossed some pretty silver snowflakes on the blue sky paper also in the pack, and I layered on my stamped images along with a hand cut snow bank.

I paper pieced the penguin's little hat and scarf as well as the Christmas tree with more papers from the True Stories collection and coloured with Prismacolor Markers. I used some glittery embossing powder on the edges of the tree to add a snowy feel!

Inside I used snowflakes and a sentiment from the Christmas Cheer set:

For my card I used these awesome stamp sets:
Cool Chick

  1. Love that you colored the chick as a penguin. I like that idea much better. Looks fantastic!

  2. Oh, my gosh, SNOW!?!? I'm a summer girl, myself! But I love your card. That penguin is too cute. I bet he enjoys the snow -- makes him feel right at home. Thanks for including the song in your post, and for playing with us at Cut it Up for our Inspired challenge!
