Cute Christmas in July

My Wednesday night Stamping group, Stampin' Celebrations, makes 12 cards each month (4 each of three designs). For July, they wanted to get a start on their Christmas Cards. Here is one we are making this Wednesday:

Cute, huh? I love these little guys. I kept the design simple to give them time to do some coloring with the watercolor crayons.

Stamps:  Polar Party
Paper: Marina Mist, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Ink: Stazon Jet Black
Accessories: Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Blender Pens, Marina Mist Scalloped Ribbon, Post-It Notes, Paper Snips

Notice how I placed the trees behind the little penguin? I used a technique called masking, an oldie but a goodie! Here's how:

1. Stamp the image that will be in the foreground first. Stamp another image on a post-it note, so that part of the image is on the sticky part.

2. Trim the post-it note around the image and place ontop of the image already stamped.

3. Stamp your background image over the top of the post-it, which protects your original image.

4. Remove the post-it and color as desired!

Happy Stamping!
