Happy Little Stamper Christmas ~~ September Edition.

 Oh my goodness it's September where oh where has Summer gone?  As much time as I can spare I have spent Summer at the cottage,  I try to do my crafting there, unfortunately sometimes I'm missing a major part of the card I'm doing and have to wait until I get home, drawback is I don't get to use the lake as a backdrop. 

As you see the challenge is Anything Goes but there is an option of Non-Traditional, I love non-traditional colours, Pink has become very popular for Christmas now, as Pink Christmas for breast cancer so I decided to to a different route for my card.

I decided that my new Non-Traditional colours are Teal/Turquoise and Purple.  I coloured the penguins (they were a printed image in my stash when I find the owner I will post)  First time using the snowglobe die, although I could have just cut the base but I wanted to stress myself out by trying to glue that tiny frame and as a result it's a tad crooked. The frame and base are silver (the base picked up on my skintone, didn't notice until I put it on the computer)  I use 5 1/2 inch square bases I buy from Len's Mills store 5 in a package and they include the envelopes. there is a purple layer and a teal layer and the white is dry embossed with Gently Falling EF from Stampin'up.  I die cut the snowbank added an ancient "rub on" sentiment and popped up the penguins finished it off with my attempt at using nuvo drops.

Now on to the inside 

The inside was finished with a couple of curly scraps and a sentiment from Stampendous.

I'm adding this to:

The Jingle Belles Rock ~~  Cookies for Santa I picked snowglobe and the purple/teal colours

Teal and purple are faves of mine for non-traditional Christmas colours, and your penguins look awesome with their toques and scarves! Beautiful snowglobe die. And the snowy Nuvo drops add some fun texture. Beautiful!

Well if one must use purple then teal is the best coordinating color. *wink* This is so vibrant and beautifully colored. Love all of the snow too. -- JulieP
