HOC Week 3 – Sneak Peek to the coolest friend ever, Penguins!

Heart of Christmas Blog Header 2021-22

Each Monday evening until mid-December, I am taking part in the Heart of Christmas blog hop showcasing our amazing range of holiday products from the Annual and July-December Mini catalogues. Please hop along and enjoy some fabulous inspiration from our talented team!

Tonight I share another sneak peek of some new products, the Penguin Place bundle ($54.75AUD). This is a punch bundle and it is adorable. I’m not normally into the cutesy type sets, but this one is cute and can also be used for birthdays with a balloon and bithday sentiments included, so a win-win. In the Sale•a•bration brochure, you can also earn a full pack of 12″ x 12″ Pengiun Playmates DSP that coordinates with this bundle for any order over $90+!

The snow hills are stamped in Balmy Blue ink onto the new Snowy White Velvet Sheets ($8.75AUD) and then I used Paper Snips to cut along the edge. The Stitched So Sweetly dies cut out the sentiment. The Penguins were stamped in Black Memento ink using the Stamparatus to ensure I got a nice dark tone by stamping twice. I penguin on the front is fussy cut, but the one on the inside is cut using the Penguin Builder punch! The feet and beak are stamped in Calypso Coral ink and the hat and scarf in Polished Pink ink (fussy cut).

How cute is the inside?!!!

Card 2 – This card predominantly uses the upcoming Sale•a•bration item, Penguin Playmates 12″x12″ DSP, that can be selected for FREE with any $90+ order from 4 August 2021!

The background panels, cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies and the three cute images are all cut from the DSP! The sentiment is the same one as on the above card, but this time I cut it into three separate sections to glue to each of the three panels.

The Balmy Blue Gems added an extra touch of glimmer and I thought went really well with this colour combination. The White Crinkle Seam Binding Ribbon is tied in a bow and added with a glue dot.

  1. Cute and gorgeous cards Kate. Those penguins are terribly cute and love the pop of pink on front (hat) and inside (presents) of the card. Your second card shows the variety of the DSP and the other playful creatures.
