For my cards today, I am showcasing the Christmas Penguins stamp set.
To begin, I stamped and colored my images with Spectrum Noir Harmony Quick Dry Dye Ink in Rustic Brown using my MISTI stamping tool. I colored the images in with my alcohol markers. I used my Brother Scan N Cut machine to die-cut the images.
I also die-cut some of the elements that I needed to create my winter scene using some dies from my stash. Here’s my first card:
Those little penguins are super adorable! I finished my design by stamping the sentiment “Baby It’s Cold Outside” with some lobster ink by Lawn Fawn. I also added some snowflake sprinkles for some added texture. Here’s a closer look:
For my second card, I ink-blended a Bristol smooth white card stock with some distress oxide inks using my blending brushes. I wanted to create a soft-winter sky for my scene. I also die-cut the trees and the snow hill using some dies from my stash.
I colored the trees using some dye inks and mini ink blending tool. I took my time until I was satisfied with the colors. I adhered the trees and the penguins on my colored background with some foam adhesive for added dimension. Here’s my second card:
To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment on the card and used my black gel pen to add more depth to the eyes. Here’s a closer look:
I hope you like my cards today and got inspired. The supplies I used are listed and linked below in case you’re interested.
