You might have noticed that I haven’t been posting in my blog as much lately….so thanks for hanging in there with me….if you are still reading that is! I spent the last 5 weeks in Phoenix, Arizona helping my mother sort and purge all of her belongings, sell her house and car in preparing to move to live with my husband and I in Virginia. Her belongings arrive this week and then we’ll be busy unpacking….not looking forward to that! But is did get a chance to get all my Stampin’ Up! boxes unpacked and I’ve been stamping! (Yeah!). I missed all my crafting time!
One of my favorites in the new July-December Mini Catalog is the Penguin Place Bundle….this cute Penguin Place stamp set and the coordinating Penguin Builder Punch. (Hint: If you buy the bundle, you’ll save 10%!)
So all this week, I’ll be sharing cards I’ve made with this set, like this one:
And what is a “Lottle”? Glad you asked!
These cute little penguins were made to sparkle! They were punched from a piece of Black Glitter Paper. The inside Basic White Body piece is also punched. The Penguin Place Stamp Set has a bunch of tiny little stamps— the nose, eyes, heart, bow tie, scarf and hat. You will need to get out your paper snips to cut the bow tie (or you can stamp one directly onto his neck.
The penguins and the hat are all adhered to the card using dimensionals. (The penguin has the regular sized dimensionals on the back, and the hat uses the mini Stampin’ Dimensionas.

The Designer Series Paper I used is called Penguin Playmates. This set of papers is part of the Sale-A-Bration items that you can get for FREE with a $50.00. It’s a great mix of patterns and several of the Penguins can be punched out directly from the Paper, and the other ones can easily be fussy cut with Paper Snips. If you don’t have a pair of Paper Snips and are using regular scissors, I highly recommend getting yourself a pair. The blades are thinner and angled slightly different so they make fussy cutting super easy.
Hope I’ve inspired you to try this card!
