Hi Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year. I suspect most of you have taken down the tree decorations, but these cuties remind me of me getting tangled up in the lights. No matter if I am putting up the lights or taking them down, I am all tangled up! LOL! This is one of the newer released stamp set called Brighten the Holidays 663 from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

I used an svg file for the tree. I then added White Liquid Applique around the edges, added Sparkling Snow glitter G1003 and heat set it to make it puffy like snow. I used a small hole punch and punched holes in the tree, layered the tree pieces onto sticker paper and added Gypsy Red velvet glitter GM2005.

I stamped the image, colored it with copics, fussy cut it and pop dotted it to the base of the card. Gypsy Red  GM2005, Goldenrod GM2006 and Purple Rain GM2020 velvet glitters were used on the lights in the penguins' hands. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

This is wonderful, April! Love that SVG file for the tree...it is superb. The perfect setting for your adorable penguins.

We move in 10 days...I am living in a sea of boxes now! Still have a third of the craft room to pack...but luckily it is all in storage containers that stack...so a few rolls of that plastic wrap for furniture should do it...then just the garage to tackle packing...uggh

Hope to get back tot he new group in 2015...I always enjoyed creating with you all!

Oh, this is adorable and such a great design. This is exactly how I feel when taking down Christmas lights :-).
