Penguin Plunder

Today is a new digi release for My Whimsical Little World Digi Stamps and the theme this time around.... animals.  Paola has created 6 adorable little images (4 animals and a companion background!) and I'm showcasing the three penguins today.

I decided to make a set of mini cards for this release.  I checked out my envelope punch board to see what card size I could make an envelope using a 6x6 sheet of paper.... 3.5".  So that's what I went with.  I think they'd be perfect to tuck into a gift or maybe someones lunch or backpack.

First up, is the adorable Penguino with hat and scarf.  I colored him with my copics then fussy cut him before putting him onto my card base and embellishing.

Next, we have a great little Pablo.  He's holding a cupcake, which would be great for birthdays or any other celebration, but I wanted to use these cute puffy stickers to say 'sweet hello' (you can make out the hello pretty well in the pic, but the sweet is a little faint )... very versatile.

For the third card in the set, I used Tooey and repeated the process (color with copics, fussy cut, put on card, embellish ;))

I also got to play with the cool igloo digi that's being released today.

I imported it into my Silhouette software and sized it to fit into a regular 4.5"x5.5" envelope. I used the trace function to create a shape slightly larger.  Then copied that shape, rotated it to fit along the top to create a folded card, and merged the two so they would cut as one shape (clear as mud?!)  This way the card base would have a slight outline to mat the great igloo on.  You can't see it in the picture, but the outline is covered with a glittery embossing powder for a 'snowy' effect.

So that's what I've come up with for this great release - can you see the penguins on some fun Christmas/Winter cards for this year??  Go check out a couple other design team members to see what great things they've come up with using the penguins and other animals being released.


And did you know there is a My Whimsical Little World Facebook Page??  There's a challenge going on there until October 8th to play along with - you just have to create something using purple, orange, and green.

Thanks for stopping by!
