Season’s Greetings, Penguin

2022 Heart of Christmas LogoEach Monday, join me for the Heart of Christmas Blog Hop brought to you by the Art With Heart team. We will be showcasing our July-December Mini catalogue and Annual catalogue Christmas products.

There’s only a couple of days left of Sale•a•bration 2022 so best to get your order in by 31 August if you wish to earn free product (with a qualifying product order)!

My card today features the cute Penguin Place stamp set and coordinating Penguin Builder Punch and the FREE Sale•a•bration Silver and Gold 6″x6″ Designer Series Paper.

Using one of my Blending Brushes, I added a light layer of Pool Party ink to the Silver spotty DSP. I also used a sponge dauber to add some Balmy Blue ink around the edges. This is glued to a Thick Basic White card base.

The Layering Diorama dies are used to cut the ice and added with dimensionals. The penguin is punched in Basic Gray and White card. The feet and beak are stamped in Mango Melody and the beanie and scarf are stamped in Fresh Freesia and fussy cut with Paper Snips. The eyes are stamped in Black Memento ink. The sentiment is stamped and die cut using the Stylish Shapes die and Pool Party ink added with a blending brush. I finished by adding some Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels.  On the inside I added another little penguin punch art.

  1. The chunk of ice (layering diorama) is the perfect place for your cute little penguin to reside Kate. I love the soft colour you have added to the DSP as it works so well with the pink touches.

  2. Such a cute card Kate and the brushing of the Pool Party on the paper softens it beautifully. That diorama die cut is perfect for the ice!

  3. How clever of you to use a Layering Diorama die as a chunk of ice! I love how you’ve blended on the silver spotted DSP and added more ink with the sponge dauber for the edges too. Your little penguin is adorable, Kate!
