A Gift For You

Peace on Earth Challenge #22

For this card I used the inspiration from the cute top left image and a few of the colours from the rest. My stamp is a new one from Penny Black called Waddling By and I stamped him several times in black and then with Versamark so I could heat set with clear powder. Then I coloured it using Inktense pencils and a some grays from Prisma colour. Once it was fussy cut I added foam tape ready for popping up. Using StampinUp DSP I cut the background piece and attached to card front and then from the same package chose the blue pattern and die cut using an oval die from Hero Arts. Using some scrap white CS I cut a shape to denote snow hills and added it to the oval before adding the penguin. I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap piece of white, leftover from a cover plate die cut and added a bit of black glitter pen to the heavier sections on the words. Die cut this with a small die from Creative Expressions and also another small one from the same blue piece as the oval. I offset the two for interest. I’m quite pleased with how this turned out and got it finished just prior to our next set of guests arrival. We have them for a couple of nights which is fun. Thanks for looking and hope you all have a wonderful day.

    1. I’m exhausted!!! They left this morning and it was a great visit, but now I’m so tired I could fall asleep on my feet. Glad you like this effort. I had fun making it.

  2. I like mood boards as they give a lot of ideas that can be used. I know Gayle likes them too. Glad you like the card. We had a fun with friends, but 2 nights of drinking wine and going to bed late have done me in. They left this morning so I’m winding down now.
