Hello! I hope you had a great weekend! Yesterday afternoon during my weekly Facebook Live, I made a Christmas card with the cute Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place bundle. This is a really cute bundle that will be available on August 3, 2021 when the new July-December 2021 Mini Catalog goes live. It’s a really cute photopolymer stamp set with Penguins that comes with the new Penguin Builder punch and it will come with a 10% discount when you purchase both as a bundle! And did I tell you that it’s really cute!! You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:
I adhered a panel of the Tidings of Christmas designer series paper to the front of a Cherry Cobbler card base with liquid glue. I adhered a length of silver mesh ribbon to the DSP with Stampin’ Seal. I cut a panel of the striped Cherry Cobbler Tidings of Christmas DSP with the large stitched octagon die from the Hippo and Friends dies and adhered it to the DSP over the mesh ribbon.
I punched the pieces of the penguin using the Penguin Builder punch from the Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place bundle. I punched two center body pieces from Basic White, four feet from Mango Melody, two body pieces from Black Glitter cardstock and two body pieces from Basic Black as backing pieces to stiffen the little guys. I stamped the eyes on the center bodies in Memento Tuxedo Black and the nose in Mango Melody. I adhered the Basic Black to the back of the Black Glitter with liquid glue and adhered the center body to the front with glue dots. I adhered each foot with another glue dot and added a small matte black dot to each eye.
I used the snowflake die from the So Many Snowflakes dies to cut snowflakes from silver foil and adhered them to the card front with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place stamp set in Versamark ink on Evening Evergreen. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set with my heat tool. I cut the sentiment out with the Messages die and adhered it to the card front. I popped the penguins on the card front with dimensionals and finished the front with silver epoxy dots.
I adhered a part of a silver snowflake in the upper corner of a Basic White panel. I stamped the penguin from the Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on the side and stamped his nose and feet in Mango Melody. I stamped the sentiment from the Tidings and Trimmings stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink and adhered a strip of Tidings of Christmas DSP along the bottom. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal.
Above is the card I made during my video along side my sample card. In my sample, the penguin’s feet are hidden and I used a different sentiment with silver embossing powder. I think they are both cute! The cute Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place stamp set has fun Christmas and winter sentiments and birthday sentiments as well, so it will be perfect for penguin lovers celebrating birthdays.
