Today’s Sketch Challenge (SC625) is easy & seemed perfect for a New Year’s card. Also perfect if someone was late sending a Christmas card to someone else. Not naming names…OK, it was me & this is my clock so it’s no wonder.

For my sparkly, starry card,  I heat embossed the circle greeting onto a die cut silver metallic piece of card stock using silver ink and a sparkly silver embossing powder. After die cutting the swirl behind it & the little stars, I coated them w/ the silver ink & embossed them w/ the same powder. The two blue piece of card stock were die cut & I coated the edges & embossed them, as well. The sky blue piece also has the star bg heat embossed on top.

Here’s a look at the inside.

Today’s Free for All (F4A357) is to create a nighttime or night before card. This is definitely the Night Before…it’s night outside the window & Santa is delivering his presents. I’m also adding it to yesterday’s Ways to Use It..windows, since there is a window looking out. This is such a wonderful scene & it took me a while to color it all..then a really bad thing happened & ruined it. So I started all over. Don’t you hate it when that happens? santa-00138
Since it’s pretty much a card covering scene, I stamped just the one line over the top & added two narrow layers. Below is a a look at the inside & underneath it are the Copics I used. Yep..a whole lotta colors going on here.

I also made this for the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS516). I chose to case THIS card. I kept the holiday theme and trio of penguins, but I used different images, different colors & a little different layout.

Don’t you just love these adorable little penguins? They look so happy! I couldn’t wait to color them…and I love giving them rosy little cheeks and bellies. I put together parts of two greeting (the little Thanks fit much better in the space than the cursive thanks that comes w/ the Much part) and layered a die cut Snow to go between the two words. The snowflake designer paper was split to let the other paper show through & I added some snowflakes from the Snowflake Reverse die. I had every intention of adding some stickles or sparkly gems to the snowflakes, but just totally forgot.

Here’s a look at the inside..I’ll add a greeting when I know who’ll be receiving it. Below it are the Copics I used. penguin-thanks-inside-00194
