Hey there! Last Friday I held my final stamp camp of the Christmas season at Donna's house. I will resume my classes on January 1st, but I still have a few Christmas cards to share before I get serious about sharing Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalog Sneak Peeks!
Today's share is a Christmas card I created for Donna's class with the Making Every Day Bright stamp set and Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper, both of which are on the retiring-while-supplies-last list. I needed a quick-and-cute card and this little penguin was perfect! The pearlized shine of the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Paper helped provide a cold and wintry look!
I stamped three little pennies with Tuxedo Black ink on a white scrap, then punched with the Christmas Bulb punch. I colored their stocking caps with a Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends Marker (available January 3rd), then added a little bit of Clear Wink of Stella for cold wintry shine.
I stamped "Bright", from the not-retiring Making Christmas Bright, with black ink, then surrounded it with Balmy Blue snowflakes from the Making Every Day Bright set. I stamped each snowflake twice before re-inking to get the two shades of Balmy Blue, and added a dot of Wink of Stella to each. You don't have to use a lot of different embellishment if you have a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush! I punched the greeting with the Pretty Label Punch, then cut a Balmy Blue one with my scissors to adhere behind it.
Inside I used another Making Christmas Bright sentiment and more Balmy Blue snowflakes:
Seems like there should be a song about these little guys, doesn't it?
