Greetings friends. Today I want to share my favorite item from the new Impression Obsession release. It is the Just Chillin' clear stamp set, which features cute penguins and coordinating sentiments. Here is what the set looks like:

I like that the penguins are great for winter as well as Christmas.

Whenever I think of penguins, I think black/white. I didn't know how it would translate to a winter card, but I wanted to give it a go. I stamped my penguin in black Memento ink and then colored elements of the image with pink and red Copic markers to really contrast with the black and white. I then cut out my design by hand.

For the background, I used two Cover a Card backgrounds. I really love mixing and matching my stamp patterns, so I chose a standard snowflake one to represent winter and then paired it with one of my favorite abstract designs called Marble Scribble. Here is what the two patterns look like:

Do you have favorite patterns that you like to mix and match? I am always looking for new ideas.
