Just Add Ink have a new sketch Challenge this week. For my inspiration, I used the cold weather we have been having lately and it’s also my grand niece’s 4 th birthday and I thought she would love a penguin card for her birthday.
Stamps: Well Scripted (sentiment inside card)
Paper: Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Basic Black
Ink: Baja Breeze
Accessories: Basic Black Marker, Dazzling Diamonds, Snowflake embossing folder, Snowflake Die, Small Snowflake Punch, 1 3/4″ Circle punch, large Oval Punch, 1″ Circle Punch, 1/2″ circle punch, I Heart Hearts Punch, Owl Punch, White Gel Pen, Glue Pen, foam pads
I started with a base card made from Bashful Blue cardstock. I added a snowflake embossed piece of Whisper White cardstock, followed by a strip of Tangerine Tango. Next, I added snowflakes and some left over pieces of cardstock from when the large snowflake was pressed out. I used these to make the icicles. Before adhering them to the base card, I touched some of the images with a glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds.
I then made an igloo, by punching out 2 1 3/4″ circles. One in black and one in white. I then cut the white circle to form blocks and then adhered them to the black circle. I trimmed the base and repeated the processed for a 1″ Circle to form the entrance. To finish off the entrance I added a half 1/2″ Circle. Before adhering the igloo to the base card, I again added some Dazzling Diamonds.
For the penguin, I punched out 2 large ovals, the long heart from I Heart Hearts punch, an eye from the Owl punch, 1/2″ Circle and 1″ circle. Once I put the penguin together, I added a pupil using a black maker and some white marking using the gel pen. To finished off the penguin, I added Dazzling Diamonds to the wing and the belly of the penguin.
Inside the card I added a piece of Whisper White cardstock and the birthday sentiment from the Well Scripted stamp set.
