Yay! It's Thursday again and that means it's time for a digi stamp card or two or three or five...guess I just got a little carried away with this stamp! I just LOVE this new penguin and sentiment set that Lindsay created last week. You can buy it in her Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Store for just $1.50. I started with a sketch from Mojo Monday and then found this fun patterned paper in my DCWV Christmas paper stack, left over from last year. If you look closely, you can see the paper is covered with little ski boots, jackets, hats, poles...you get the idea. I thought it would pair up perfectly with Lindsay's "cool" penguin.
I colored the stamp with my bic mark it pens and added Stickles and Distress Stickles to the penguins' hats and hold on to your hats girls - I USED MY CRICUT to cut out the snowflakes! Why don't I use this little treasure more often? I used distress stickles on some, and "regular' stickles on others. Click the photos to make them larger, and I think (hope) you can see the difference. Regular stickles are more sparkly. I used pop dots to adhere the snowflakes for added dimension. To finish a couple of these, I added eyelets and string to the corners for a challenge at The Stamp Shack!
Since this was such a fun and easy sketch, I made some extras so I can use these for Christmas Cards. I used a studio g sentiment stamp on one of the cards, and made a square card with more DCWV patterned paper.
Wow - nothing like killin' THREE birds with one stone (no offense, Mr. Penguin)! Don't forget to check out the rest of the Design Team's Blogs to see what they have been up to this week. You can link up to them on The Frugalcrafter's Weblog. See you soon, and happy digi stamping!
