365 Cards: Let it Snow!!

Welcome to another JAX Starz Blog Hop! This month our challenge is a sketch challenge!

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Rose Ann Marr's blog.  You can follow the full blog hop lineup below to move along from blog to blog, so you can see all of the new projects.

I saw more than a few cards where people put antlers on the penquin and... well... I just couldn't resist!

And here is the sketch that we used:

It's a fun sketch, so if you decide to use it, I hope you'll share the card you made with me!

Some Stampin' Tips:
  • Repeating elements. When I first started making this card, I did not have any snowflakes stamped on the white paper behind my little penguin guy and it looked empty. So I looked to the patterned paper that I was using as my background and repeated the snowflakes on my white cardstock by reversing the colors -- the patterned paper was Night of Navy blue with white snowflakes so I stamped my white background with Night of Navy snowflakes! It really gives the card a fun look.
  • Mix n' Match Stamps. I do this all the time... don't be afraid to mix your stamp sets... there is no hard and fast rule that you can only use one stamp set on your cards! :)
  • Pop of Color. So I needed some contrast on my card... there was lots of dark colors with the blue and black. So I added the Cherry Cobbler to really make the sentiment stand out and frame my penguin! It's always a good idea to add some pops of color to your cards.
Alright, that's all I have for today's hop..... the next stop is Beka Laing on this month's Jax Starz Blog Hop! Make sure you go check out all the fantastic ideas... I just know that everyone will have some amazing ideas to share today. Thanks for visiting and I'll see you next time! :)
