#SimpleStamping Saturday Penguin Place Sneak Peek. How cute is this little chap? I mean he just makes you smile, or is that just me? And he is perfect for a #SimpleStamping Saturday set of projects.
As ever, I am starting with just a Basic White Note Card and Envelope and minimal additional supplies. Today I have added Memento Tuxedo Black, Balmy Blue and Pumpkin Pie (or Calypso Coral) ink pads. That’s it. It really is as simple as that. Just stamp the images and you are done. Well, you will want to stamp on the envelope too!
Stepped Up Version
For my first stepped up version I added some coloured card, the Penguin Builder Punch (which you can get as part of the Penguin Place Bundle and save 10%), and the FREE Sale-a-Bration Penguin Playmates 12 x 12″ paper. Buy the Bundle, a pack of Note Cards & Envelopes, a D Block and one ink pad and you will qualify for the FREE Paper! If you already have a Block, then get 2 ink pads and you will still qualify for the Paper.
Using the Penguin Builder Punch and some Basic Black and Basic White card, simply punch out the 2 body pieces and then add the stamped elements, including stamped and punched feet. Layer up the card and paper and you are done!
Further Stepped Up Version
For this version I decided to make a Faux Shaker Card. Patty Bennett is great at these, such a clever idea. Simply wrap the top layer of your card in a Clear Medium Envelope, add some flat sequins from the Sequins for Everything pack and seal it all up before adding it to the front of your card.
For the stepped up version I punched the penguin from the patterned paper and added some threads of black twine behind the penguin and the balloon to replace the stamped string. I decided to heat emboss the front sentiment too, just for some added shine. Both stepped up versions have some Clear Wink of Stella on the Balloon too. If you have the, now retired, Balloon Duo Punch, that will punch the balloon from this stamp set perfectly. Ask me how I know!
What do you think? Do you like these projects? Aren’t they just so cute? Quick and easy to make, so ideal for so many occasions.
