What is a Lottle

Hi!  Welcome to Day 2 of Penguin week!  What if you just needed a card for a friend?  Well, today’s card has you covered!

So you probably asking – what is a “lottle”.  When I first saw this in the catalog, I had to google it as I had never heard the word – and basically, the following sentiment in the catalog nails it – “Its like a little but a lot”.  Quirky – but cute.

The base is once again Misty Moonlight cardstock.  This is a mini square card 3″x3″ -so your base would measure 3″ x 6″ – score at 3″ and fold.  It is embossed with the Tasteful Textures 3D Embossing folder.

The penguin uses Paper Piecing technique – stamp the main penguin body in Jet Black StaZon and stamp on the Just Jade Designer Series Paper and punch.   Stamp again on Basic White and punch with the inside piece.  Punch the feet from Pumpkin Pie cardstock – layer together.   His beak is stamped with Pumpkin Pie ink, the eyes with Jet Black StaZon and the heart and bow with Petal Pink ink.

The layer behind the penguin uses the Seasonal Labels dies found on page 18 of the July-December Mini Catalog.  The sentiment is stamped in Misty Moonlight ink on Basic White cardstock.  Finish off the card with In Color Jewel (on the bow) and a piece of White Glittered Organdy Ribbon (layered with the sentiment).

Penguin Birthday

Hi!  Welcome to Penguin week here on the Blog!  The Penguin Place bundle in the July-December Mini Catalog is so cute and can be used for more than just your Christmas projects – tho I’ll be showcasing some of those, too.

Today we will start with this birthday card:

The coordinating punch makes it easy to make adorable cards.  Pair this bundle with the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper (FREE with a $50 purchase – prior to S/H and tax) and you’ll have tons of fun creating with this guy.

The penguin body is punched from Basic Black cardstock and the belly from Basic White.  Stamp the eyes in Jet Black StaZon and the beak in So Saffron.

The bow tie and hat are stamped in Just Jade ink and fussy cut with Paper Snips.  The balloon is stamped in Fresh Freesia ink and if you have the retired Balloon Punch – the smaller balloon fits this perfectly.  If not, then fussy cut with your Paper Snips.

The base is Misty Moonlight cardstock.  The Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper is used for the striped banner and the layer behind the penguin. A small piece of Basic White acts as snow for the penguin to stand on.  A few star sequins from the Cute Stars Adhesive Backed Sequins pack also in the mini finish the card.

You will find all products to make this card in my on-line store.  Simply click on one of the product links below and it will take you to my store.  Don’t forget, once you reach $50 in your cart, you can choose the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper FREE!
