PENGUINS!!!!

So the first time I saw these penguin stamps from Repeat Impressions, I HAD to have them! I just love them...they are so super cute! So when the Stamp Scrap Art Tour came to town, I had my money ready to stop at Wendy's booth and get the full sheet of these guys. So today I wanted to show you a card I made using this week's What If? Wednesday Sketch from the Repeat Impressions blog. See...I told you the penguins were cute! I started by stamping the bigger image with the ornament. I stamped him off, and colored his beak and feet, and then added some crystal effects to the globe. Oh, and some stickles to the "hook" thingy (technical term). I trimmed it down, and layered onto some striped PP. I decided to stick with all black and white for this card. The PP are from the Glitter stack from DCWV. I layered the penguin onto the star and circle PP. The ribbon is some stretchy silver ribbon I had in my stash. For the little diamonds, I cut a black one that is slightly larger then the white ones. I stamped the little penguin using black ink on the white diamonds, and white ink on the black diamond. I also ink distressed the edges of the black diamond. I used the same silver ribbon for behind the diamonds. I really liked the way it turned out with so little color on the card. OH...I forgot...I couldn't get the orange marker to show up on the black, so I used orange stickles instead.

Ok I think that is all for now! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Seriously adorable! It looks even better in person when you can see that shiney bulb with the crystal accents. Very very cute!
