Penguins in Love

Hello fellow crafters! Tonight I made a card for an upcoming swap I am participating in at one of my favourite groups, Inky Fun Stampers.


The theme of the swap is “Penguins’. When I saw Pollycraft Digi Stamps’ penguin images called “Penguin Love” I thought this was the perfect stamp for this project and today in my email also came several free vintage snowflake images from Graphic Fairy. I used the snowflakes in a collage for the background paper. Check out the snowflakes at:


I coloured my penguins with my Copics, used tumbled glass distress inks to edge the papers then added snowflakes and bling. I used snow writer, Sparkly Fluff and glitter to give the hats texture and sparkle. the added ribbon and a button to complete the card.

Well back to my craft room.

Thanks for stopping by.
