Designing for Creative Stamping magazine

If you follow me on Instagram (@jane.tyrrell or there is a link in my side bar) you may have seen my post on Sunday sharing my very exciting news, which I have been sitting on for a few months now. I was invited by Creative Stamping Magazine to join their design team and Issue #78 which goes on sale this Thursday 7th November will feature my first commission. Not only that but I am a cover girl
with my snowy cabin rocker card. 
 My makes use stamps from the free set which come with this edition. It is called wild winter.
They are such a super set and can be used not just for Christmas but for winter birthdays or greetings cards.
I made 4 male themed cards and obviously you will need to buy the magazine if you would like to see them.  They all have full step by step instructions of how to make them.

However in addition to the 4 cards I made for the magazine I also made a couple of extras which I will to share here on my blog.
Today I will share my Polar Bear and penguin Christmas card, I will share the other make soon. 
I used zig watercolour makers to colour all my stamped images.
 I made an inky background from spray inks.
There is also a super iceberg stamp which I stamped 2 of the sentiments on to. I cut out my elements and added a couple of die cut stars,
Here is my card.
