I loved playing with the Playful Penguin stamp set in the Holiday Catalogue. I want to show you four cards I made:
The first one on the left is made with a Shaded Spruce card base and the front is only half front on the bottom. I used Whisper White on the inside and on the outside. The front panel has a mat of gold foil and then a piece of designer series paper from Wrapped in Plaid. The focal point is a Shaded Spruce scalloped oval with a white oval with the penguin stamped on the front. The penguin's scarf and santa hat are stamped in Cherry Cobbler.
The top middle card has a base in Whisper White, a Basic Black matte, and a Whisper White front matte that I sponged with 3 different shades of yellow, starting with the lightest color and working up to the darker. The 3 penguins were stamped on a piece of scrap Whisper White then fussy cut.
The card on the right with the single penguin has a Cherry Cobbler base, a Pool Party matte and a piece of Whisper White that is ripped across the top and then spritzed with a mix of a few drops of shimmer paint and rubbing alcohol in a spritzer bottle. The die-cut snowflakes are from the Christmas Layers Dies. The scalloped square was cut from Cherry Cobbler and the white square from Whisper White using the Square Layering Dies. The penguin is stamped in the middle of the white.
The last card, bottom middle, the Merriest Wishes, has a Basic Black base with a Cherry Cobbler matte and a Whisper White front. The tree stamp is from the Merry Moose set and the 2 penguins are stamped on the front. The hat and scarf are stamped in cherry cobbler on a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut.
