Penguin Fun

My best friend's birthday is coming up. She loves snowmen, but I decided to do something a little different for her card this year. Instead of a snowman, how about an irresistible penguin?

Peter Penguin is an old DOTS image, but he is still adorable.  His body is colored with Copics in warm greys to coordinate with the brown background paper.  His hat brim is colored in cool greys to give it a contrast to the body.  I even used a Copic marker to color the small, clear button on the bottom left. 
The following are all CTMH products: snowflakes cut using CTMH Art Philosophy (and qualifies it to enter in the Heart2Heart Snow Much Fun challange), banner sentiment from the Artiste bundle coordinating stamps, and B&T paper.
The kraft paper directly behind Peter Penguin was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.
I love how even my really old stamps have held their quality so I can create clean, crisp images with them.  And how they can be pulled out and given new life with more current products.
Until next time,


  1. This is an adorable card. So many details that come together really well! Love it!

  2. Love your card, Becca! Peter Penquin is adorable--you make me want to dust him off and ink him up again. It is really beautiful with the Artiste cut snowflakes, stitching and dry embossing!

  3. He is adorable, and your friend should love your card. Thanks SNOW much for joining us @ H2H!

  4. That little penguin is just too stinkin' cute! Great job on the challenge! Thanks for playing along with H2H this week!

  5. Becca, you did an outstanding job pulling the older stamp images in with the newer CTMH products. Peter Penquin is a cutie!
    Love their stamps, papers, and any embellishments they offer.
    Thanks for sharing the beautiful card.
