Stampin’ Up! Playful Pengiun Frost

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you are all having a wonderful week so far.  We’re half way through already, which means the weekend is right around the corner.  In just a little over 2 weeks I will be leaving for OnStage in Hartford.  I’m so looking forward to meeting up with some of my team members and seeing the next Occasions Catalog.

Today’s card was inspired by my Upline’s weekly challenge she had for us.  I did both the color and sketch on the same card.  Here’s my card.

Here are her colors and sketch she gave to us to work from.

I used a technique I haven’t done in a while.  I used my Sponge Brayer on the Feels Like Frost Specialty 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to change the background to Mossy Meadow.  Once I had it the shade I liked, I adhered it to a Mossy Meadow card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece 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 scarf and hat image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Real Red Ink on the Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the penguin image out using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies and I fussy cut the scarf and hat using my Paper Snips.  I adhered a piece of Silver 3/8″ Metallic Edged Ribbon on the card front using Snail and adhered the artwork over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a couple of the boughs out using the Beautiful Boughs Dies from scraps of Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I cut the swirls out using the Christmas Cardinal Dies from a scrap of Real Red Glimmer Paper.  I adhered the boughs under the artwork using Glue Dots.  I adhered the swirls over the boughs using a tiny dot of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels which I had colored using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.

On the inside I stamped the penguin image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the side of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiments from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Real Red mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Mossy Meadow 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!!
