Stampin’ Up! Playful Penguins

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started off?  Hope it’s going to be a productive one for you.  Don’t forget, tomorrow is the big Stampin’ Up! 24-Hour Sale.  Lots of wonderful stamp sets at a 15% discount.  If there are some you have been wanting, you don’t want to miss this great opportunity.

For today’s card I used the color and sketch challenge that my upline had given us last week.  Each week this month she is giving us a new challenge to do.  I have to admit, I did struggle with the colors for this one a little bit.  Here’s my card.

Here are the colors and sketch she gave us.

I started by embossing a Night of Navy card front using the Winter Knit 3D Embossing Folder.  I wrapped a piece of Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front on an angle.  I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the penguin image from the Stampin’ Up! Playful Penguins Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the ground snow image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Versamark Ink below the penguin and immediately sprinkled it with Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  I set it using my Heat Tool.  I stamped the falling snow image from the Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Boughs Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink all around the penguin.  I sprinkled it with my Shimmer White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the artwork to an Old Olive mat using Snail.  On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the scarf and hat image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Granny Apple Green Ink.  I fussy cut them using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the scarf and hat to the penguin image using Glue Dots.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped just the outline image of the banner from the Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas Cling Stamp Set using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker.  I stamped the sentiment from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Old Olive Ink inside the banner and cut the banner out using the Christmas Cardinal Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the sentiment banner over the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots to the ends of the banner.

On the inside I stamped 2 of the sentiments from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Old Olive Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the penguin image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the penguin image from the Playful Penguins stamp set on the envelope front and the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
