Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place Sneak Peek Christmas Card

Good Morning! Last Sunday I shared a sneak peek of the cute Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place bundle from the upcoming Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog. Today I am sharing another Christmas card made with the set, and sharing a sneak peek of the cute Penguin Playmates designer series paper that will be available during Sale A Bration Part 2 that runs August 3, 2021 – September 30, 2021! You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Today’s card is a whimsical fun fold card with a mini card on top of a regular A2 half card base. I adhered a panel of the Penguin Playmates designer series paper (available August 3, 2021) to a Misty Moonlight card base panel. I folded the mini card at the score line and adhered it to the card base panel with Tear & Tape for a strong hold. I adhered a panel of the Penguin Playmates DSP (available August 3, 2021) on the front of the mini card.

I cut the large fancy die from the Hippo and Friends die from the Fresh Freesia snowflake Penguin Playmates DSP (available August 3, 2021) and the medium die from the dotted paper. I adhered these together with liquid glue and adhered them to the right side of the mini card. I stamped three trees from the Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place photopolymer stamp set (available August 3, 2021) in Just Jade on Basic white and adhered them to the die cut panel. I fussy cut the polar bear, fox and penguin from the Penguin Playmates DSP (available August 3, 2021) and adhered them with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place stamp set (available August 3, 2021) in Versamark ink on a strip of Misty Moonlight and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heat set the powder with my heat tool. I cut it out with the Messages die and adhered it to the mini card front with dimensionals. I finished the card front with three clear elegant gems and a Fresh Freesia bow.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the snowflakes from the Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place stamp set (available August 3, 2021) in Fresh Freesia ink on a Basic White mini panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set (available August 3, 2021) in Misty Moonlight ink and the tree in Just Jade. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of Penguin Playmates DSP (available August 3, 2021) and adhered the panel to the inside of the mini card.

The Penguin Playmates designer series paper that will be available for Sale A Bration is so cute and compliments the Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place bundle so well! I can’t wait for August 3 when the new catalog is available and Sale A Bration starts!

Stampin’ Up! Penguin Place Sneak Peek Video Tutorial

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 posted a copy of the video in my YouTube channel here so you can view it there if you prefer.

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. Sale A Bration part two also starts on August 3, and one of the free items at the $50 level is a set of the cutest designer series paper that coordinates with this bundle! Here is a picture of the bundle with my card. And also don’t forget that the Tidings of Christmas DSP that I used is included in the current Designer Series Paper Sale at 15% discount!!
