Sweater Weather ...

Good morning! Today I have the pleasure of announcing that I am a Guest Designer for the Month of November over at the Dare 2B Artzy Blog.

Today’s card features the Penguin Fun Stamp Set (#16221) along with the Penguin Dies (D29). I love penguins so this set caught my attention immediately, and I just had to play with them. 

I stamped one of the three penguins from the set several times using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and Copic Markers were used to color them. Using the coordinating dies I cut out one of the penguins. I then fussy cut out each section of the “ugly sweater” and layered them back together using my Xyron Sticker Maker. Just so you have an idea what I’m talking about … you have the full sweater plus bow-tie, next is the sweater and bow (no sleeves), with the final portion just being the bow-tie. This adds a little more dimension to the card that is more noticeable in person because you can feel the texture.

I put the adorable penguin on some icebergs. I positioned and stamped the bottom iceberg on my card, and added the Sweater Weather Sentiment at the same time with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I then stamped two more icebergs and cut one out with the coordinating die, and fussing cut the second one as I only wanted a portion of the iceberg. Color was added with my Copic Markers. Tumbled Glass Distress Ink was added above the iceberg on my card, and then using 3D Foam Squares I added the other icebergs and the adorable penguin to my card. 

The penguins in this set are so adorable, and I look forward to creating more projects with them.
