Guest Designer - Imagine That Digistamp (Z-Fold Winter Scene)

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm happy to announce that I have been invited to be a Guest Designer for November at Imagine That Digistamp - Creative Playground Challenge #11!  The challenge theme is always Anything Goes and you may use any vendor's images/stamps. There are prizes to be won for Imagine That Digistamp online shop so you will want to head over and check out this challenge!  You have until December 4 to join in!


I decided to step outside my comfort zone and make a Z-fold winter scene card!


I had a lot of fun colouring these adorable images with my markers!  


After I coloured the images, I fussy-cut each one, along with the sentiments.  For the snowbanks, I cut them by hand and added Diamond Stickles all along the edge.  I added Glossy Accents to the penguins' beaks and feet, as well as the cocoa cup. The gorgeous snowflake background paper mentioned above is also part of the Eskimo Friends Kit.  I finished off the card with several blue and purple sequins.


Here are all the sets I used from Imagine That Digistamp:

Here is how the card folds up to fit into an A2 size envelope:


Here I've stretched it open so you can see everything:


Thank you to Kris for inviting me to be one of this month's Guest Designers at Imagine That Digistamp - Creative Playground Challenge #11!  I had fun!  I'll be back later this month with more inspiration for this challenge so stay tuned!

Current Challenge - Anything Goes

The Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is on now, so I wanted to join in! My penguins are enjoying hot cocoa!



I've also been playing along with Beccy's Place - Month of Holiday Cards. Although it's an alphabet challenge, there are only 26 letters, so Beccy mixes it up with a few other challenges. Day 6 is a Bingo Grid so I went with Sparkle (Diamond Stickles), Fancy Fold (Z-fold), and Sequins (Snowflake Sequins).
