Penguin Place Winter Fun PP673

by Joanne James21. January 2024 08:00

Today it's Sunday and time for this week's new challenge over at The Paper Players! It's the turn of the fabulous Claire to host this week and she has a seasonal clean and simple challenge for us to work with:


Winter fun! I was totally inspired by our challenge badge this week, so grabbed this week's Color Throwdown colours and the sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches with my Penguin Place stamp set and got to work - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

I added my penguin sliding down some snowy slopes and cut him out with the largest of the Tailor Made Tags Dies and tied it with some sparkly twine:

I added it to a base onto which I stencilled some Boho Blue snowflakes using one of my Abundant Beauty Decorative Masks; I ran this through my diecutting machine with an embossing mat and the stencil in place to give it a slightly embossed look, although this is quite difficult to see in the photos. A simple stamped sentiment from the same stamp set completes my clean and simple card.

The 'Penguin Place' stamp set is great for winter fun cards - it is also currently available on the Clearance Rack in the online store for the bargain price of £4.75. What's more you can even purchase the co-ordinating punch too for just £4.25 - what are you waiting for?! I'm also linking today's card up over at Inkspirational where they are asking us to use stencils on our projects.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my Product and 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any.

Joanne, this is the sweetest card.  I love the stenciled background.  Such a wonderful scene for this adorable little penguin sledding down the hill.  The tag makes it even more special.  It would make a great book mark, too!  You certainly rocked my challenge!!!

What a cute card, Joanne! I love the colors.  The stenciled snowflakes make the BEST backdrop for a winter fun card. Stamping the penguin on a tag was a great idea. He definitely looks like he is having a blast!

Joanne, having seen penguins in Antarctica slipping and sliding everywhere as they scramble up the snowbanks... you can imagine how this card made me smile!   I love the colors you used, too.  Such a fun card
