Hello there… I’m still having fun with my new Lawn Fawn stamps! I can’t stop making cards with them.
My card today features a super cute set called Winter Penguin.
It’s so fun.. You can do so many things with this little guy. For my card I wanted to have a fun scene with a girl and boy skating on ice. So I first stamped out 2 penguins. Then, I started by coloring the boy’s scarf and hat with teal and blue Copic markers. I stamped his little beanie hat using the Critters in the Arctic stamp set (Lawn Fawn). The girl penguin got a purple scarf and skates. I don’t have the dies to these stamp sets.. So I fussy cut all of the images out.
I got my inspiration for the color scheme from a new Doodlebug paper pack I just bought called Frosty Friends. SO CUTE!
To build my scene, I layered a piece of patterned paper cut to fit onto my vertical A2 sized card. I decided that I wanted to have snowflakes on a layer of vellum in the background, so I stamped out the snowflakes using Versamark ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I then adhered the vellum on top being careful to put the adhesive where my penguins and snowflakes would cover it up later. Then, the fun part! I built the scene with my two penguins skating on blocks of ice from the Critters in the Arctic stamp set. To make the ice shiny and realistic I added glossy accents. And of course, you can’t forget the snowflake sequins…
