PPA17 Penguin Love



TGIF Peeps!

Today I am sharing a card I made with the sketch challenge on the Pals Paper Arts Blog.

I just love the little penguin in the "Cold & Cuddly" Stamp set from the holiday mini. When I saw the sketch I knew immediately that I wanted to use that little penguin in my squares. I stamped him four times onto whisper white card stock. I used black stazon ink and wiped off the ink from the heart and beak with a Q-tip and then used my real red and more mustard marker to color them in. I then used my real red and garden green markers directly on the hat stamp alternating the stripes.

The penguin are punched out with my 1-1/4 inch square punch and they are matted with the square scallop punch and real red card stock.

The base of the card is real red followed by garden green and whisper white. The Ds paper is from the Merry Moments DS pack. The sentiment comes from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set, I stamped it with real red onto whisper white card stock. I used the word window punch and mounted it directly to the base card. I used some red ribbon and red sparkly rhinestones on the penguins hats.

Now what penguin lover wouldn't love to receive this in their mail box at Christmas, I know right where this one is heading!!!!

Well, that is all for today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
