Hello friends! Stopping in to share a card I’ve made with an adorable Whimsy Stamps image and to remind you of the December challenge going on over on the Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Facebook Group. If you are creating with any of your Whimsy Stamps products, I hope you will stop by and add your creation to the gallery!
This is the really adorable Penguin Coffee Break Digital stamp set by Crissy Armstrong…always LOVE using her adorable penguin images! 🙂 You actually get THREE digital images within this set. You get the penguin alone like I’ve used on my card here, you also get one with the winter scene background behind him as well as just the scene by itself! Pretty nice deal for one low price if you ask me!
I’ve made this a pretty simple card by printing out the image, coloring it up with Copics and then for the “snowflake” on the penguin’s shirt as well as the sentiment and the sparkly snowflakes in the background, I’ve pulled out the Whimsy Stamps Snow Flurry Clear Stamp Set. I have heat embossed the smallest snowflake on the penguin’s shirt with white embossing powder and then I heat embossed the snowflakes in the background with some Sparkle N Sprinkle’s Sprinkle Embossing Powder [EP107] and lighly ink blended some Tumbled Glass distress ink over top of it. I wrote the “snow” letters over the cup with a white gel pen and then stamped the sentiment from the Snow Flurry stamp set underneath the cup. I’ve cut this panel out with a cross-stitch rectangle die and then layered it over some red cardstock and then mounted this onto a top folding A2 sized white card base.
Upon a closer view, you can sort of see the sparkly embossed snowflakes in the background as well as the coloring details. For coloring up my penguin, here’s the Copics that I’ve used:
- hat/scarf/mittens: BG78, BG75, BG72
- sweatshirt/hat & scarf trimmings: R39, R37, R35 for trimming: C3, C1, blender 0
- Penguin Body: C8, C7, C5, C3, C1 for feet/beak: Y35, Y21, Y11 cheeks: R00, R000
- Cup: W9, W7, W5, W3 liquid/steam: E29, E25, E50
- Snow/shadow around and under penguin: B00, B000, B0000
I’ve also covered the trim on his hat along with the trim on shirt with a Spectrum Noir glitter brush pen. I added a dot of Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops to the center of the snowflake on his shirt as well as the liquid in his cup.
It’s hard to capture the shimmer on his white hat trimmings, but you can see the sparkle in his cup and the center of his snowflake. I was thinking of all of the things that you could add to his shirt besides a snowflake…so that would be fun to play with too!
Hope you’ve enjoyed my card today! Please be sure to stop on over to the Whimsy Stamps Facebook Group and add your creation to the challenge folder! You never know, you might win something!!
