Wintertime Penguin Tags

Hello friends!  I’m on a roll with the tags and back again to share some more fun tags that I’ve been working on!

Vicki-DDSWintertimePenguins-tagsCheck out these adorable penguins having some fun doing winter activities!  Penguins are probably one of the top animals that I love!  I have SO many penguin stamps in my stash and seem to keep on collecting more of them…so of course I was super excited to be able to add this Wintertime Penguins Pairables set from Digi Doodle Studios to my collection as well!  🙂

There is seriously so much fun you can have playing with this digital set and if you like penguins as much as I do, then stay tuned in as I will be sharing even more creations using this same set in December!  You will see what I mean by all the different things you can do!

For both of the tags, I’ve used several dies from my stash to create my own tags.  I took a stitched scallop circle die (MFT) and cut two of them out in the blue and pink colors along with a small tag cut with the same colors for the very top.

On one of the scallop circles, I used a circle die (Hero Arts) to cut out the center to create the “frame” for the front.  I then took some snowflake papers (MFT) and cut out another circle that was slightly larger than the opening to attach behind it.  I also took some pretty shimmer white paper and cut a “snow slope” for both penguins with a stiched border die (Lawn Fawn) and then cut it out with the same circle die as the snowflake papers.

I silver heat embossed the sentiments along with some snowflakes and then added my colored penguins over top.  Then when I flip it on the back side I can put my “To: and From:” on it.

Vicki-DDSWintertimePenguins-tag-pinkHere’s a closer view of the pink tag.  For the digital image, I used Word on my computer to add the penguin and place it over one of the “ski” images from the set and enlarged it to make it look like a snow board instead of a ski!  Then printed it out.

I’ve used my Copics to color her up and fussy cut her out.  I even added some shadow on the snow hill for her.  I took a glue pen and covered her hat trim with glitter.

Lastly, I found some more pink ribbon and tied some silver bells over it with some white twine in a bow.


And for this little guy…he cracks me up….I made him using Word again, but this time I actually took the “sled” image and sized it down so that it would fit on the penguin’s feet to make it appear as if he is ice skating!  I did it for each foot.  LOL!

I’ve colored him up with the Copics again only using more blue tones instead of the pinks and did the similar traits to it like the other one.  I did use a clear metallic gel pen to color the “blades” of the ice skates.

Hope you’ve been enjoying my tags so far!  Thanks so much for dropping by and I’ll see you again tomorrow for a new challenge!

I’m adding this to the “25 Days of Christmas Tags” event and my inspiration for these tags came from Cassie’s tags on the Day 24 Heffy Doodle Post.

  1. These are likely the cutest tags I’ve seen all winter, Vicki! The ornament shape tags is a fantastic idea for gifts or tree trimming. But once again, it is your coloring that immerses me into the Land of Sweetness by Vicki. Your cards just make me sigh with pure happiness. What a gift you have to make anything look cute as can be! hugs, de

  4. These tags are so cute I just can’t say enough about them! I love the pink background with all those snowflakes and the amazing coloring of the penguin! And then there’s that blue one – equally cute with different colors! I just love these tags!


  5. Cutest penguins ever, Vicki! Incredible coloring (one of your many talents!) and I love the out-of-the-‘box’ technique. Great idea to layer the circles. The faux stitching is delightful.
