Birthday Wishes

January 24, 2020 in La-La Land Crafts - No Comments

Happy Friday!!

This week’s theme for the LLLC team is Birthday and I think this little penguin is just perfect!

I’ve kept this pretty simple to let the penguin really take the spotlight. I inked a stencil from the Snowy Hills Layering stencils to create a confetti background and I love how the Three Presents Die from last November’s Holiday release can be used for birthday as well just by using bright, playful colors.

I created a large present for the penguin to stand on using a Double Stitched Square die and a Stitched Nested Circle die for the polka dots. I die-cut one of the present dies a few times to add ribbon to the large present and added a large bow from the Wreath With Bow die.

I heat embossed all of the ribbons and bows with clear embossing powder for a little shine.
