PLAYFUL PENGUINS TAGS!

I have shared some cards with the Playful Penguins lately so I thought I would show you these cute tags.  I received them as a swap at our Team Meeting last week.  This was made by Barbara.  They are just too cute not to share.

I won’t give you too many details on them.  I think they are easy to see how they are done by looking at them.  The tag shape is cut from Whisper White card and the angles cut.  You could use the Paper Trimmer or scissors.

Products used:  Playful Penguins, Jingle Bells, Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon, Everyday Label Punch.

Colours: Shaded Spruce, Real Red, Basic Gray.

All these products are available to order in my store now -> HERE.

Please use the Host Code: 6CCRNYH6

I love sending out little Thank You cards and a small gift for your order so be sure to not mark your details as anonymous.  Australian residents only.

Also, receive a Tutorial Bundle of 12 projects as a little Thank You.

Thanks for visiting today.  I hope you are going well in your part of the world.

PLAYFUL PENGUINS TRIO!

I have been sharing some cards with the Playful Penguins stamp set and I had shared these cards very briefly but thought I would share them individually with you today.

It’s a Penguin Parade for this card above.  To highlight one of the penguins I stamped the scarf in Shaded Spruce and raised that up off the card.  I love that the sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas fits nicely between the penguins.

One sole penguin but doesn’t it make it elegant with the flourish die from the Ornate Frames Dies.

This penguin is feeling hopeful under the mistletoe.  This was cut using one of the dies in the Christmas Layers Dies.  These are very versatile dies that you could use for any occasion.

Which card do you like the best?  I can’t choose.  I just think this set is the cutest.

Thanks for visiting me and seeing these cute penguins today,

EMBOSSED BACKGROUND WITH PLAYFUL PENGUINS!

I shared some cards with the Playful Penguins a little while ago.  This time I have a cute card for you but what I particularly want to show you is the background.

I have used the Christmas Layers Dies in the Holiday Catalogue to create this effect.

I have embossed the dies on the card rather than cutting them.

I have shared a few times how to emboss with your Dies -> HERE and -> HERE.  It’s very easy and gives you a little more versatility with them.  What a cool effect it creates!

To emboss with them you will need to change they way you layer them in your Diecut machine.  Here’s a table to help you.

Please note: the table below uses the term Big Shot.  Stampin’ Up! no longer uses the term Big Shot.  I will update this table very soon.

To finish the card the sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set and cut with one of the Ornate Frames Dies.  I added a strip of the Gold Foil under the sentiment piece that I had flagged the ends. The paper is from the Wrapped In Plaid Designer Series Paper. 

For balance and for a little extra I added some of the Shaded Spruce Ribbon and cut a Gold snowflake to finish.

I do love these penguins.  How about you?? What about trying this effect on your next card.

Happy Stamping,

Jenny

PENGUIN EASEL FOR SEPTEMBER STAMPING AROUND THE WORLD BLOGHOP!

It’s time for September Blog Hop with the Stamping Around the World Tutorial Group.  You might have come from Sue’s Blog or starting here.

For our Blog Hop we use the stamp set/bundle that we used in this month’s Tutorial Bundle that are sent out.  Of course I used the Playful Penguins set from the new 2019 Holiday Catalogue. They are just too cute. 

For this Blog Hop I have made probably the easiest Easel card you could create.  The idea came from Lou’s blog -> HERE.

Let me show you the card and I will tell you how I have made it.

Front View

From Top

Side View

Folded card

To create the Super Simple Easel Card

See the ‘Side View’ photo above to get an idea of the fold.

Cut card to the standard size base card whether you are using Metric or the Imperial US card size.

Score 2.5 cm (1″) on the front of the card base. Fold on the score line.  This is for the fold of the Easel.

Cut a strip of card 2.5cm wide (1″) and the length being the width of the card.

I added a strip of the Christmas Gleaming stripe pattern on this piece of card. This strip is then adhered to the bottom edge of the inside of the card with dimensionals.  This strip creates the anchor point to hold the Easel up.

Decorate

Decorate the Easel card as you like.

I cut a curved strip of Sparkle Glimmer Paper and adhered it on the folded tab.  3 Penguins were stamped with their scarves and then hand-cut and raised up off the Glimmer Paper.  A piece of the Christmas Gleaming Designer Series Paper was adhered to the front of the card which you can see as the star pattern on the top panel.

The sentiment was stamped on a strip of white card but check out the flourish banner Gold Foil.  That was cut using the Ornate Frames Dies from the Holiday Catalogue.

Such an easy card to create but so fun with these penguins.
