Warm Hugs Penguin

Hi there,

from this month on I have the great joy to join the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge Design Team. This month the optional twist is "Die Cuts":

  • stamp the adorable little penguin from the WPlus9 Winter Pals set with Versafine (Onyx Black) and color the image with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils
  • color a piece of smooth white cardstock with Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Broken China) and a Mini Ink Blending Tool and die cut one of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Snowflakes
  • cut the sentiment strip from that same colored paper with the help of one of the My Favorite Things Stitched Sentiment Strips
  • stamp the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Stamps Arctic Animals set with Hero Arts Shadow Ink (Pool)
  • mist the stitched watercolor panel with Heidi Swapp Minc Reactive Mist and let it dry thoroughly
  • once it's dry run the panel through the Mini Minc together with DecoFoil (Silver Star)
  • ink up the edges of the panel with Distress Ink (Broken China)
  • ink up the edges of the cardbase with Distress Ink (Faded Jeans) before adhering the panel

I can't wait to see your creations in the gallery.



  1. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous Tanja! Love that little penguin and all the bling.

  2. Welcome to the Christmas team Tanja and what a splendid start! Loving all the glitter and shine.

  3. So glad to be designing alongside you on the Christmas Tean Tanja. I love that adorable little penguin, and especially his purple earmuffs. He looks wonderful amid all that sparkle and shine.

  4. Such a funny card, Tanja :-) This penguin loves at first sight :-))) A great, festive project.
