Thank you for your support! 

The Penguin Place Bundle makes such stinkin' cute cards!! As I mentioned in my last blog post, I wasn't initially super-excited with this bundle, but now that I've played with it a bit, I LOVE it!! I've seen a lot of great cards made with it, too! This card is a variation of one that I made recently for a team swap. I used the Penguin Place stamp set and the Penguin Builder Punch to make my card.

What's really exciting is that you can get this bundle (or one of 11 other choices) for FREE when you purchase a Starter Kit and join my team, until the end of September--click here for more details!! And, during Sale-a-Bration, with a $60 purchase, you can earn some coordinating paper (or choose from several other products) for FREE!! Check out the super-cute Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper (DSP) at the end of this blog entry.


For this card, I started with a 4-13/16" x 5-1/16" piece of Shimmery White Cardstock. I cut three Post-it notes to represent the hills, stuck them to the Shimmery White piece, and used a sponge dauber to add some Pool Party ink above each hill, adding some Flirty Flamingo for the sunset (this is inspired by Australia’s Mandy Witherby, and a card of hers that I saw a couple of years ago). Next, I completed the sky by adding more Pool Party with a Blending Brush, and removed the Post-it notes.

I then stamped some Evening Evergreen trees--a few at full strength, and some stamped off. I used the Post-it notes to mask parts of the snow banks. 


The sliding penguin was stamped in Memento black and Mango Melody (a Stamparatus is handy to get a really strong black). I cut him out, and adhered him to the hill with Dimensionals. The other penguin is punched (from Basic White, Basic Black, and Mango Melody) with the Penguin Builder Punch, and the eyes and beak are stamped.


A 12" length of the Sheer Pool Party Ribbon was wrapped around the card front, and tied into a knot. This layer was adhered to a 4" x 5-1/4" Basic Black layer, and then to an 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (scored at 4-1/4") Pool Party card base. I stamped the sentiment in Pool Party, added it with Dimensionals, and three Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added to finish the card.
