CC Designs October Release – CUTE PENGUINS

HELLO and welcome to the October Reveal Day by CC Designs. The Design Team is so excited to share with you a few projects that we created showcasing the CUTE PENGUINS Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

I started by stamping the images from the Cute Penguins stamp set on some Neenah solar white card stock with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to die-cut them all out.

Next, I used a die from my collection to create a box card and also die-cut the birch trees to create my winter scene. I assembled them quickly with liquid glue.

I finished my design by stamping the sentiment on the pattern paper strip and adhered on the card using my tape runner. I added the red bow to the middle of the birch tree for that extra cuteness.

The CC Designs Creative Team has some amazing inspiration for you, using the products featured here today.¬†Please don’t forget to visit CC Designs’ Instagram account to see more inspiration from the team.

The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!


I’m Under Your Spell with MFT Stamps

Hello MFT fans! I am super excited to share with you my entry for the MFT Stamps 2021 Card Design Superstar. This card is for the Coloring Virtuoso category.

I started by stamping the images from the Witch Way Is The Candy stamp set with Memento Tuxedo black ink on some Neenah solar white card stock. I colored the images in with my alcohol markers. Even though I have the “older” coordinating dies for this stamp set, I fussy-cut the images with my precision snips. I didn’t want the white border around the images because of the black background.

Next, I die-cut some black card stock, as well as some Bristol smooth white card stock using the Outside The Box Level Up Die-namics. Using the Bristol smooth die-cuts, I ink-blended them all with Seedless Preserves, Carved Pumpkin and Wilted Violet distress oxide inks. I sprayed the pieces with water using distress sprayer and picked up the excess with paper towel. I then assembled the main box card with liquid glue then added the colored panel using my tape runner.

Next was to create my Halloween scene. I die-cut the grass panels using the Outside The Box Grassy Hills Die-namics with some black licorice card stock. I cut the flaps and adhered on the box card with liquid glue.

Now that I have everything colored and assembled, I am ready to put my scene together. I adhered my focal image (being the star of the show) to the foreground. I added the frog and pumpkins with liquid glue.

Next, I have to decorate the background to finish my scene. I die-cut the tree using a retired Trio of Trees Die-namics from MFT with the Sweet Celebration 6×6 Patterned Paper (also retired). I adhered it on the background with liquid glue.

The moon was die-cut using the older Witch Way Is the Candy Die-namics on some Bristol smooth white card stock and inked up with Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin distress oxide inks.

To finish my spooky scene, I die-cut the black clouds using the Cloud Cover Die-namics on some black card stock. The first piece was adhered with liquid glue on top of the moon. The other cloud was adhered on acetate sheet and added on the card behind the witch for added dimension. Take a quick look here:

I hope you like my spooky scene. Some of the retired items are of course no longer available. Therefore, I have linked the current supplies that are similar to the retired products I used for my card. Thanks for stopping by today and happy stamping!
