Stampin’ Up! Merriest Wishes Penguin

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today? We’re halfway through the week already and only 2 more days and I leave for OnStage.  I’m so looking forward to meeting up with my team members for some stamping time and socializing.  I can’t wait to get my hands on the new Occasions Catalog and be able to share some new things with you.

Today’s card is one that we made at our last Stamp Camp last week.  I wanted to have a variety of cards for the ladies to make.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series paper to a Real Red Mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted panel to a Real Red card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped one of the penguin images from the Stampin’ Up!  Playful Penguins Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I cut the image out using the oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered it to a Real Red Glimmer Paper scalloped mat which I cut out using  the Layering Ovals Dies using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the bow tie image from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Real Red Ink.  I fussy cut the bow tie using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the penguin using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Real Red Ink on a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the strip into a banner using the Banner Triple Punch.  I adhered a strip of Shaded Spruce cardstock below the matted artwork using Snail and adhered the sentiment banner on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Red Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the right of the sentiment.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Playful Penguins stamp set in Real Red 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 the inside of the Real Red 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 in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of Let It Snow Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

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

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!!

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.
