What’s black and white and red all over? No it’s not a newspaper; it’s a penguin in a scarf!

Penguin Greeting


Thinking about the Paper Players “black and white” challenge, the penguins from the 2019 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog would be a fun choice, so I was really glad my Holiday Catalog pre-order arrived in time. Cherry Cobbler would be my “one other color.”


In addition to using the Paper Player’s colors, I used the layout from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches.


I couldn’t wait to ink up an adorable penguin from the Playful Penguins Stamp Set. I stamped him in Memento Black Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, which I cut with a Stitched Shapes Square Die.

The same die was used to cut a second square, which I embossed with the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder.


Next, I stamped his scarf in Cherry Cobbler Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and fussy cut it for a perfect fit. The scarf matched his Cherry Cobbler card base, as well as the sentiment from the Merry Christmas To All Stamp Set.

I gave the Whisper White layer on the card base some texture with the Subtle Texture Embossing Folder.

A die from the Magnolia Memory Die Set made a nice snowdrift for my penguin. After stamping the sentiment, I brushed the top edge with Memento Black Ink, and raised it on Dimensionals.



To complete my card, I added a bow of Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and three Epoxy Droplets.


I’m also sharing Playful Penguins, in a color challenge, for the Kre8tors August Blog Hop. Clicking on the card will take you to the details.
