Penguin Holiday Squares

Christmas is coming! But you all knew that, right?  ;-D 
I LOVE everything Christmas, and I'm super excited about this set of stamps that was released last month.  It's called Penguin Holiday Squares.  This is just two of them - there's a third image in the set (along with sentiments) so go check it out HERE.  Plus, the sentiments it comes with are so versatile, not just to use with this set.  And I love the fonts Denise chose for them. (I draw the images, and she designs the sentiments!)
I also did the papers - yup! I designed them myself and you can get this set at Whimsy too! They're from a set called "Christmas So Soft".  I love love love using digital paper! It opens up a lot of space on the shelves by not having to store big bulky pads of paper.  Plus you don't have to "save" a sheet that you love for that "special occasion" (you know that occasion - the one that honestly never happens!) because you can reprint your favourite sheets over and over at will! No more fears of running out of your favourite one!
Also, the snowflake is an oldie but a goodie, still available at Whimsy HERE.
Here are the Copic markers I used:
Black: N1,3,5,7,9 100
Pom shades: BG90, 93, B000
Background: BG23 with B41 as a second layer on top
Penguin cheeks: 0 blender first, then R30
Penguin whites: YR30, E40, E70, Tiny bits of BV20 in the darkest places
Pink clothing: RV21, 91, 93, 95, 34, 32, and some RV0000 in the highlights
Beaks: YR30, 12, 14, 27, E74

So if you haven't started your Christmas cards yet, this set makes some really COOL cards! Hop on over to the Whimsy Store and check out all their new releases! There's something for everybody!
Stay cool!
