NCC Penguins 07351
Aren’t these little Caroling Penguins adorable? And they were so much fun to color! After putting them in my Misti & stamping w/ Memento, I colored them then over stamped them w/ Versafine. They were die cut w/ the largest Circle Ornament die, I added a little color around the edge then attached them to the glitter circle that was die cut w/ the largest Matting Circle die. I also used the glitter card stock for the background (cut w/ the ODBD Flourished Star Pattern die), the Flourished Vine & the ornament topper & the Wishes part of the Best Wishes die. The designer paper top & bottom (from the ODBD Christmas 2014 collection) was die cut using the ODBD Leafy Edges Borders dies. Just a note here: you are now able to purchase BOTH NCC & ODBD items in one place & not have to pay 2 shipping charges! How fabulous is that?!?

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

NCC Reindeer cu 07357
My second card features this cute little reindeer from the Merry & Bright set. Most of the DT got a chuckle with this one…they saw him as having a snowflake me it looked like he had a jumper w/ a snowflake on it. Either way..he’s a cutie!NCC Reindeer 07356
I stamped & colored him as before, then over stamped & die cut w/ the largest Stitched Oval die. The tips of his antlers got a little out of the box treatment to keep from cutting them off.  I also used a gold gel pen to add some sparkle to the gold beads on the image before I attached him to a larger layer I die cut w/ the Oval dieThis layer & the rest of the card front were done using papers from the ODBD Christmas 2015 collection.  The little white shaped pieces above & below the main image are the largest die from the Antique Labels die.

Here’s a look at the inside where I used some left over paper & stamped the sleigh (from Santa’s Sleigh) in pear tart. Below it are the Copics I used.
