Before the 2019 Holiday Catalog by Stampin' Up is over, I wanted to share a few more cards featuring stamp sets from it, like these Playful Penguins. This set is so cute and easy to overlook in the catalog. It is a great set for creating a variety of cards. While the stamp set includes some great sentiments, I also paired the penguins with greetings from other stamp sets to show its versatility.
All of these cards follow the same basic pattern. A piece of 5" x 3 3/4" Whisper White cardstock, a piece of 5 3/16" x 3 15/16" Basic Black cardstock, and a card base in one of the brights colors cut to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4".
I stamped the scarf with Melon Mambo ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out before adhering it to my penguin with liquid adhesive. I tried stamping the scarf directly on the penguin, but was unhappy with the muddled results. The scarf is much brighter when it isn't stamped onto a black penguin. And fussy cutting the scarf was easy! However, the hat is stamped directly on the card front.
Once again, the sentiment is from the Playful Penguins stamp set. I stamped it in Melon Mambo on a strip of Whisper White cardstock and mounted it on another piece of Basic Black cardstock. Then I mounted it to my card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
I hope you've enjoyed this quartet of penguins! Tomorrow, I have one last post of gorgeous Christmas cards coming your way as I participate in the first ever Magnolia Bloghop Project.
