A Chill Penguin — FMS512

It’s time for another new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our hostess is Kim Singdahlsen, our super talented Coloradan friend. Take a look at her fun sketch:

Now that I am in the throes of Christmas card making, I wanted to use the cute little penguin in the Penguin Place stamp set and I thought he would work well as a substitute for the tree in the sketch.

I started by cutting out some dsp from the Sweet Stockings dsp collection. I added a Wonderful Snowflake upon which to place my penguin friend. He was stamped and punched out with the coordinating punch. I then stamped and cut out the trees and his accessories with my paper snips.

I added some little Snowflake Sequins and cut out the sentiment from the same stamp set.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch! We love to see what you create as we browse the gallery each week. Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

A Penguin Playmate — FMS501

Oh, we had a fun time celebrating our 500th sketch at Freshly Made Sketches last week — a fabulous gallery, prizes and so many supportive comments! Thank you to everyone who participated in one way or another! With that milestone achieved, it’s time to work on another. This week’s hostess, our favorite Coloradoan, Kim Singdahlsen, has a great sketch to get us started. Take a look:

There are some really cute products in the current Sale-a-Bration offering. One of the first ones on my list was the Penguin Playmates 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. It is designed to coordinate with the Penguin Place bundle in the holiday mini catalog.

I started this card using a blending brush to apply some Misty Moonlight ink onto a white piece of card stock. Some splatters were added ( I think I got more of the white acrylic paint in my hair than on the paper ) and I cut it out with a die from the Nature’s Thoughts Dies collection.

The sweet bear was cut out of the dsp with my paper snips and popped up with dimensionals. I stamped the balloon and sentiments with stamps from the Penguin Place stamp set. The striped dsp is also from the Penguin Playmates dsp collection.

While this suite is perfectly suited for holiday cards, it’s also cute for other occasions!
