I'm starting to get prepared for Christmas this year to avoid the last minute rush that usually happens late November/early December! If you're looking for a way to make quick cards that are easy to make multiples of, "The Penguin's Waddle" stamp set from Mama Elephant
is perfect! I have three cards using this set to share with you today!
I cut three panels from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant's "Basic Rectangles" Creative Cuts
. I used my Misti stamping tool
to stamp my penguins on my panels using Gina K's Amalgam Jet Black ink
, two vertically and one horizontally. I stamped a copy on some masking paper and carefully trimmed it out and placed my mask over my penguins on one of the vertical panels. I shifted my panel over to the side and stamped my second lot of penguins above my mask to create the fuller panel of penguins. I coloured my horizontal panel and my vertical panel with the most penguins using my alcohol markers, I also coloured the penguins on the second vertical panel but left the top portion of my panel white and fussy cut them out. I added highlights and details using a white gel pen, including some snow on the panels where I coloured the background.
I cut another panel from white card stock with the same die as before and blended it with Shaded Lilac
and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks
. I splattered some water on my panel with a paintbrush and cleaned off the excess to give it the distressed look, this will be my "snow" for this card! Once my ink on the panel was dry I secured it in my Misti and stamped my "Warm Wishes" sentiment from Waffle Flower's "Fall Greetings" stamp set
directly on my panel using Gina K's Amalgam Jet Black ink. I popped up my penguins I fussy cut earlier at the bottom using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape
I secured a strip of black card stock in to my Misti and prepped it with my powder tool applicator. I stamped my sentiment from Mama Elephant's "Cool Penguin" stamp set
using Versamark ink, coated it in Lawn Fawn's White embossing powder
and set it with my heat tool. I trimmed it down to size and used my white gel pen to create the stitched effect around the sides. I popped my sentiment up using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
I cut three black panels using the largest of Mama Elephant's "Basic Rectangles" Creative Cuts. I adhered each of my panels to the black panels and to my card bases using Scor-Tape
Thanks for reading lovelies! I'll see you next week with another card.
