SNOW FRIENDS CARD SERIES – DAY 1

Welcome to day 1 of a 3 part series featuring these adorable Snow Place / Snow Friends stamps and dies from the Stampin' UP! 2015 Holiday  catalog!

Penguin card featuring Snow Place and Snow Friends stamps and dies from Stampin Up!  Happy Holidays stamp featured in the Six Sayings Hostess set. Card by Patty Bennett

I'm crazy for penguins… did you know?  I'll link to some of my penguin posts and my Penguin Pinterest board at the bottom of this post 🙂   We have a collection of stuffed penguins that come out to play at our house each Christmas.. do you have a favorite collection you bring out during the holidays?

For this sweet square card I used several fun techniques, and custom colored my own "Color me Irresistible" paper to get some fun red and white stripes!

First, I used my Real Red and Island Indigo Stampin' Write Markers to color just the top portion of this stamp from the Six Sayings Hostess set, then stamped it on Whisper White cardstock and cut it with my Stampin' Trimmer:

Red Pom Pom Trim… ok.. how cute is this!  I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it was so cute for the ear muffs!  eek!! A penguin with cold ears.. now that's just silly!

The Color Me Irresistible paper comes both "white on white" (for you to custom color, or use as white decorative paper) and it also comes with 6 sheets of already colored paper.  Since I wanted Real Red, I made my own. After trying both my brayer and a sponge dauber, I decided I liked the even-ness of the brayer.  What do you think? Watch the Video: See more info about the paper here.

Custom Color the "Color me Irresistible" paper from Stampin' UP! to create fun patterned paper in any color.

Below I've shown you the supplies I used for this sweet little square card.  Have you tried the thick Whisper White cardstock yet? It's wonderful for card bases!
