Happy Tuesday!!! You know what that means!!! I have a fabulous technique to share with you today…just in time for the upcoming season –
winter. I don’t want it to come any sooner so let’s not mention it! 🙂
Aren’t these little penguins holding hands just adorable?? I love them but they are not the technique that I’m sharing with you today. I’m going to show you how to create that beautiful snowy background without stamping on your penguins! Let’s get started!!!
SUPPLIES NEEDED: Background Stamp of Choice, Scrap piece of paper
I started with a card base of Basic Black and then cut 2 pieces of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5-/4″. One of the pieces is for the inside of the card and the other piece is for the card front. I started by stamping the little penguins and accessories from the Snow Place Stamp Set (Bundle & Save 15%). I stamped the penguins in Basic Black and colored in the beak and feet with a Pumpkin Pie Marker! I did a Real Red bow tie and Rich Razzleberry earmuffs! Now for the snowflake background that I stamped in Pool Party. Stamp all around and be sure to fall off of your piece of paper for a continuing look. Be sure not to stamp on top of your penguins. When you get close to them, use a scrap piece of paper to cover them up like a mask. This will give you the chance to stamp between and above them for a really snowy look! Simple and yet fabulous!!! I love it! For the greeting, I stamped it in Pool Party from the Snow Place Stamp Set and then die cut with the Lots of Labels Framelits and the Big Shot! I brushed the edges of the greeting with a Sponge Dauber! I added some White Glitter Ribbon along the top and placed the greeting over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals! You could change this card up a bit and stamp the number of penguins in your family or you could spread them out and add as many as you would like! I love it!
