Another Penguin Place Thank You Card

 

Thank you for visiting my blog! And thanks for your votes, which placed me into the Top Ten Winners of Kylie Bertucci's September International Blog Highlights!! Woohoo! I now get to participate in Kylie's Top Ten Winners Hop again. It is an honour to be part of a group of tremendously talented designers from all over the world. If you haven't seen my "Top Ten" card, it is posted at the bottom of this blog entry.



Well, this is something new for me, and it was a little tricky. I wanted to have my penguin appear to slide down the slope. I was finally able to get something that worked, and I was pretty excited when it did!! The penguin slides down the hill when you open the right side of the card, which you can see in the video. It's just 9 seconds long--I hope that you like the card!! 


I used the Penguin Place bundle, and the adorable FREE Sale-a-Bration Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper (DSP). If you live in Canada, you can get the DSP (or your choice of a different package of paper or a stamp set) for free with a purchase of $60 (before taxes and shipping). But don't wait long--our Sale-a-Bration promotion ends on September 30, so you have only a few more days!! If you live in Canada and don't have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, please contact me--I'd love to be your demonstrator! 


The DSP really does most of the work in this card! You can see penguins, foxes, and bears having fun in the snow on the paper at the bottom of the card. The trees on the second DSP makes a nice background. 


Our sliding penguin is stamped several times, using the Stamparatus to get a nice, solid black, and then I fussy cut him. I made a slider by punching out two 1/2" pieces of flat, clear plastic, and several 1/4" pieces, and then I layered them with glue dots, put them in a slot with the larger pieces above and below the layer, and attached that to a clear elastic. The penguin was adhered to the slider with a glue dot, and the other end of the elastic was glued to the back of the right edge of the card, pulling it taut, with the penguin placed at the top of the hill. When the card is unfolded, the elastic pulls the penguin down the hill. 

If you've read my blog before, you might remember that I wasn't too excited about the Penguin Place stamp set when I first saw it. I can be so wrong! 🙄 Now I am making plenty of penguin cards, and having fun doing so! They are just so darn cute!! Check out my September 6 and August 14 blog entries for two more penguin cards!

Here is the package of paper that you can get for free (value $15.75 CDN)--but just until September 30!! Please check out my August 14th blog entry for another card made with this DSP. If you do not have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, and live in Canada, I would love to be your demonstrator! Shop here! 😊


Here is my card (see my September 6 blog) that was voted into the Top Ten Winners in Kylie's International Highlights Blog.
