The Party Puffins, from the new, 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, were designed to say “Happy Birthday.” Here they are in their natural habitat of coastal cliffs by the sea. The smaller one looks like a baby to me, and he’s called a puffling. Aren’t they cute?
I stamped the Puffins in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and cut them free. They were a cinch to color; only requiring a bit of Stampin’ Blends on their beaks and feet in three colors: Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Daffodil Delight.
To create their habitat, I began with a Smoky Slate card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. Then, I cut a layer of sea from Sand & Sea Designer Paper, 4″ X 5″.
Next, I created the coastal cliffs, using a Majestic Mountain Die, and In Good Taste Designer Paper. I glued two sections flat, and placed one on Dimensionals, trimming the sides to fit the 4″ layer of sea.
Last, I stamped “Happy Birthday,” from the Party Puffins Stamp Set, in Seaside Spray Ink in the sea.
