Hi! Today we introduce you to Penguin’s friends! While the stamp set does not contain any friends, the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper that you can earn FREE with a $50 US purchase (prior to S/H and tax) – make great additions to your projects like this one!
While you can use the punch to punch out the Penguin from the Designer Series Paper, you will need to use your Paper Snips to fussy cut the bear and fox. But they are so cute together and pretty straightforward. Side question – do you find fussy cutting relaxing? I took a sheet of this paper and sat and fussy cut the critters pretty quickly while watching some TV.
The base for this card is the In Color Fresh Freesia that was introduced this year. Stamp some snowflakes in Fresh Freesia ink on the base before attaching the playmates. A strip of the striped Designer Series Paper provides a nice contrast for our playmates to sit on.
The hat on the bear is stamped in Just Jade ink and fussy cut as well. The sentiment is stamped using VersaMark ink on Misty Moonlight card stock. Sprinkle on some White Embossing powder from the Basics Emboss Powder pack and heat set with the Heat tool. Then die cut using the Messages Die (this is a great die – it gives you so many different looks and there are many different sentiments that will fit in the various labels). Finish the card by adhering some subtle shimmer sequins.
While fussy cutting may be a little time consuming, it would still be easy enough to mass produce this card for the upcoming holiday.
Thanks for stopping by!
