For my card today, I am sharing a sweet and fun festive image from the new release:


Yes, I cannot get enough of the penguins that Crissy Armstrong makes up for Whimsy Stamps!  This image is called Penguin Elves at the Workshop and I think they’re having lots of fun for Christmas!  They’re colored up with Copic markers and then I’ve taken a white gel pen for highlights as well as a silver and gold gel pen for detailing.  I took some fine loose glitter and attached with liquid glue on parts of the penguins hats and then a glitter brush pen on the bow the penguin is holding.  I have used the Pierced Border Trio dies to cut the panel on the top and bottom of the image.  I then took an ink blending tool to add some distress ink around the panel.

For the sentiment banner, I printed out the new released Penguin Christmas Sentiments 1 and cut out a banner and then went over it with a Copic marker so that it matched up with my design.  For the front panel of my card, I also took the newly released digital papers called Christmas Red, Gold and Green and printed them out and trimmed it to size my A2 white card base.  I also took my ink blending tool to distress more coloring on the edges to match my image panel.  I then took that and mounted it over the papers and then glued some gold thin ribbon on the top and bottom of the image panel and added a bow along with some festive sequins filled with Stickles tinsel glitter glue.

There is a ton of inspiration on the Whimsy Stamps and Inspiration Facebook Group as well as the Whimsy Inspirations Blog, so be sure to check them both out for the latest release and inspiration from the design team!  There are also LOTS of fun things going on this month at both places, so be sure to check it out and follow along so you don’t miss anything!!
