Hello Cute Chicks!

Hello friends!  Err…should I say “Cute Chicks”!  🙂

I have some more Whimsy Stamps inspiration to share with you today using this sweet image by Crissy Armstrong called Penguin’s Cute Chicks.  Now it may look familiar to you and that’s because it was originally made as a rubber stamp, but starting with this month’s release it has been released in digital format!  So it’s great to now have both options available to you!


I am a huge penguin fan and Crissy’s penguins are so fun to color!  I have colored this image with the following Copics (Click on the underlined numbers to purchase from Whimsy Stamps.)

  1.  Penguin Body, Beak, Feet, Cheeks:  C8, C5, C3, C1, C0 – YR18, YR15, YR12R00, R000
  2.  Penguin hat & scarf:  E89, E87, E84, E81
  3.  Chicks:  Y38, Y17, Y15, Y11 – Cheeks:  R00
  4. Chick blue & purple ribbons:  B39, B37, B34 – purple:  V17, V15, V12
  5. Egg shell and around image:  BG000
  6. Grass:  YG67, YG63, YG61

(More up-close details below!)

I have also used some fun digital papers from the January digital release called “Oh Boy” digital papers collection.  (You may remember the “Crateful of Kittens” card that I had previously done which was using these same papers.  I’ve used both the striped and solid papers for my card here.  At the top of the striped papers, I used the Whimsy Stamps Pierced Border Trio dies to cut a curvy border.  I cut another piece like that in black cardstock to layer behind it.

I took the WS Painted Sayings clear stamp set and stamped the greeting in the upper left corner of the image panel and I also used the splatter images from the set and stamped some black splatters over the solid colored digital papers.  Before attaching the striped panel to the solid background, I added some white ribbon with a bow and a black button with a bow twine through it.  I attached this to the solid panel and then attached all layers to a white 5″ square top folding card base.


Here’s a closer view of the image with my coloring.  For around the edges of the image panel, I took a glue pen and sprinkled on some clear glitter for a bit of a sparkly touch around the design.  I layered this onto a black piece of cardstock and then added some craft foam behind it for a slight dimension and attached it to the card front.

Hope you’ve enjoyed my card today!  Thanks for stopping by!!  I’ll see you back again tomorrow for another really fun project I made!

  9. Penguins are cute, but I haven’t quite figured out how to give their black coat some luster. You really did a great job with your coloring, and I do like the movement of the border on the top part of the background.
