Good Morning, 

Today I've have been going through last years releases for Christmas and have combined them to come up with three simple designs.





Mama Elephants The Penguins Waddle (Card One and Three)

Last Christmas Release from Mama Elephant (Card Two)

Memento Ink Pad in Tuxedo  Black.

Neenah 80lb Card Stock

Alcohol Markers

White Jelly Roll

Crystal Glaze (Nuvo)

Masking Paper

Grey Card stock (Card One)

This was the simplest of the cards, I cut a piece of Neenah card stock to 5.5 inches by 5.5 inches .

I then Stamped my first set of penguins masked them off then stamped the next, until they continued for the length of the card stock. I then Coloured them with alcohol markers. Add a sentiment and finally some crystal glaze.

Card Two

Stamp your greeting.


 Mask over it I choose a oval shape.



 Then like the first card. Stamp over and mask, and repeat until you reach the top.



Once you finished  all the stamping remove the masks.






Then use your coloring medium.


With the last card, do the same with a circle mask,

Place the mask over the card blank and stamp penguins on to card blank remove stencil.

Then colour as you wish.



Three different looks using masking techniques.


I hope you enjoyed this weeks blog post,


Happy Stamping

    A message to “Jo” :
    Hello !
    I’m writting an article for the issue 60 of the french magazine called “Passion cartes créatives”.
    The subject is animals from the cold (penguin and penguin, polar bear, arctic fox, seal…).
    I wish to show your card within this article.
    (seen here :
    Would you agree with that ?
    If yes, could you please send me as soon as possible high resolution photo of your creation without watermark on it ?
    Of course, your name or pen name if you want will appear next to the image, and the address of your blog will be in the address book.
    Thank you in advance for your quick answer, even if it is negative, so that I can get organized because I have to give my paper very soon.
    Best Regards, Elise AMANN
    PS: If you have any other crafted cards on this thematic that you would like to share with our readers, feel free to send me a photo of them.
