I’ve got some partying penguins to share today having some fun for the Holidays!
I wanted to create an arctic scene for them, so I’ve combined several background stamps and elements which work so perfectly with these adorable penguins. To start, I die-cut a frame from a soft creamy yellow cardstock using a Fancy Frames Rectangle Die and adhered it to a pink A2 card base. For the background scene, I die-cut a piece of white cardstock using a Stitched Rectangle Die and inked the top 2” of the cardstock with Spun Sugar and Saltwater Taffy Distress inks. I colored the water at the bottom 2” of the cardstock with Copics using random streaking motions with BG49, BG57, BG34, BG23, BG13, and BG11. I heat embossed the sentiment along the bottom with white embossing powder.
For the mountain scene, I cut a piece of Neenah Classic Crest 80lb solar white cardstock 3” x 5 1/2″, stamped the mountains from the Country Scenes Stamps across the top and colored it with Copics. I die-cut along the top of the mountain scene using the coordinating dies and die-cut along the bottom of the cardstock piece using a Slimline Nature Borders Die. To keep a continuous stitched look around the panel, I die-cut the sides of this cardstock piece using the same Stitched Rectangle Die and adhered the mountain piece to the sky/water cardstock piece about 1/2″ from the top edge.
I stamped all the images on Neenah Classic Crest 80lb solar white cardstock, colored them with Copics and fussy cut them. The penguins from the Penguin Party Stamps are just adorable and fit perfectly on ice floats from the Winter Scenes Stamps and Bear Hugs Stamps. The Christmas tree from the Cozy Christmas Stamps helped to complete my festive scene along with a slightly smaller pine tree from the Seasonal Trees Stamps.
I hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by today!
