For You


Hello there!

I’m crushing on these cute penguins from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  Today I’ve paired this little guy with a background from Hero Arts and a die cut from Alexandra Renke. 

I started by stamping the penguin, from Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Penguins stamp set, in Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black ink onto Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock.  I colored the penguin with C1, C3, C5. and C7, with a bit of Y17 for his beak and dots of black Sakura Glaze pen over his eyes.  For his scarf and ear muffs, I used RV21, RV25, RV29, and R39.  And for the little gift I used BG00, B01, BG02 and BG07.  I used the coordinating die cut to cut him out and then I set him aside to work on the the rest of the card.

For the snowflake background I stamped the Hero Arts Hand Drawn Snowflakes Bold Prints cling stamp in Catherine Pooler Fiesta Blue ink onto an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White.  Then I used the Alexandra Renke For You die to cut the sentiment from black 110# Recollections cardstock.

I decided to use a small square of vellum behind the penguin and sentiment and prepped it by spraying it with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz to give it a pretty glimmer.

To assemble the card I used foam tape to adhere the penguin to the vellum piece.  Then I used liquid glue to adhere the vellum piece to the background.  I used a Zig 2-way glue pen to adhere the sentiment to the vellum and finally to finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks so much for visiting!
