Sneak Peek: Penguin Party, Snowman Kisses & Snow One Like You

Hello and welcome to day 4 of our Sneak Peek Week!  This week I am showcasing cards using our newest Fall & Holiday collections which will be available to purchase tomorrow morning.

Today I am sharing ideas using our new Penguin Party 4x6 StampsSnowman Kisses 3x4 Stamps and Snow One Like You 2x3 Stamps. I hope you'll pull up a chair and join me.  :)

Card No. 1:  For my first card of the day I paired all the penguins holding gifts from our new Penguin Party Stamps with the Christmas tree & standalone present from our new Cozy Christmas Stamps (being shared more tomorrow). For my background I inked my sky using Worn Lipstick distress ink and then used our Forest Trees Stencils Set to ink on the tree lined border in Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn distress inks. I then layered a snowy slope over the top using our Slimline Nature Border Dies, adding a rosy glow along the top and then stamped a sentiment from that same Cozy Christmas Stamp set. Lastly I added some snow dots to my sky using my Sharpie White Extra Fine Point Paint Pen.

Card No. 2: Next up is a grid style card using our Window Trio Circle Dies which I lined up twice on my card to create 6 stitched circle openings. I then backed those openings using the pink, green and aqua snowflake prints from our new Joyful Holiday Paper pack. I'm a sucker for an orderly grid style card and these openings are the perfect size to frame the penguins from the Penguin Party Stamps. I completed my card with a heat embossed greeting from Penguin Party set onto a stitched red checked strip cut using our Slimline Pennant Dies.

Card No. 3:
 For this card I pulled our the birch trees and ice block from our Bear Hugs Stamps and paired two of the little penguins and a mug from our our new Penguin Party Stamps. To highlight them I started by inking the center of my card panel with Peacock Feathers and layered on Prize Ribbon and Chipped Sapphire on the outside edges. I then nestled them in the bottom of a snowy hill which I created using our Slimline Nature Border dies, inking the edges with tumbled glass distress ink. Lastly I heat emboss the "warm hugs" greetings from Penguin Party and added stars to the sky from our Too Cute To Spook Stamps and Scaredy Cat Stamps.

Card No. 4: When I was creating the Penguin Party Stamps, I knew I wanted to create an ice skating card with this little guy. For my background I used the house and fir tree lined hill borders from our Scenic Route Stamps with a frozen pond I created by cutting the top edge with our Slimline Nature Border Dies. I was able to use the streaky nature of Copics in large spaces to my advantage as it made it look more like reflective shiny ice to me.  I used the solid image from our Layered Basket Stamps to act as a surface to stamp my penguins onto and then re-stamped them onto my "ice" to create a mirror image. Jennifer McGuire has an older tutorial showcasing the mirror stamping technique in a video she shared HERE. Lastly I stamped my punny Christmas greeting from our Penguin Pal Stamps.Sunny Studio Ice Skating on Pond Holiday Christmas Card (using Penguin Party, Penguin Pals & Scenic Route Stamps and Slimline Nature Border Dies)

Card No. 5: Up next is a Comic Strip style card using our Comic Strip Speech Bubble Dies as the frame for each mini scene. For my snow slopes I used our Slimline Nature Border Dies and then adhered a panel inked up with tumbled glass distress ink for the sky. I stamped a sentiment in the top, right corner using a punny greeting from our Penguin Pals Stamps and then added in all the penguins from our new Penguin Party Stamps. For the extra elements in my scene, I used the ice block from Bear Hugs with the igloo & snowy trees from our Winter Scenes Stamps. I also added a penguin from our Passionate Penguin Stamps (in the top, right), adding a Santa hat and present from the Penguin Party set.

Card No. 6: For my last Penguin Party project of the day, I have a set of shaker gift tags which I created using our Mini Mat & Tag 3 Dies together with the patterned paper from our new Joyful Holiday Paper pack. I once again created the stitched snow slope using our Slimline Nature Border Dies and then used our Iridescent White Confetti as my snowflakes to shake about in the background.Sunny Studio Christmas Holiday Shaker Gift Tags (using Penguin Party & Season's Greetings Stamps, Mini Mat & Tag 3 & Slimline Nature Border Dies)

I wanted to make my tags as pretty on the back side as they are on the front side so I cut extra tags out of that same paper, reversing the topper and tag prints in order to have enough paper from the one package. I think tags like this are sturdy enough and pretty enough to turn into a holiday ornament afterwards!  For my "To / Love" I used words from our Season's Greetings Stamps.

Card No. 7: Switching gears we have a darling new mini 3x4 stamp set called Snowman Kisses featuring 4 new snowmen to compliment our popular Feeling Frosty Stamps. For this card I used three of the four new snowmen to create a winter evening scene. I started by inking a cardstock panel with Prize Ribbon, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot distress inks. When it was completely dried I covered the surface with the Cottontail Powder Embossing Tool and then repeatedly stamped our Frosty Flurries Stamps in the background (4 times) using VersaMark Ink and heat embossing with Hero Arts Sparkle Embossing Powder.

For my snowmen I colored them using Tombow ABT Pro Markers and die-cut my snowy hillside using our Slimline Nature Border dies. To give it a snowy sparkle, I then pressed my cardstock into my clean VersaMark Ink Pad coating the entire surface and then heat embossed it with more Hero Arts Sparkle Embossing Powder. I did the same with my snowflakes which I cut out using our Snowflake Circle Frame Dies, using tweezers to hold them while I melted the embossing powder. For my sentiment, I wanted the edge around my greeting to blend with my background so I ended up inking up a scrap of cardstock with the same distress inks I used for my background and when it was dry I heat embossed my "happy holidays" greeting from our Holiday Greetings Stamps. I started by first heat embossing the phrase with white embossing powder and then stamping it a second time with versamark ink and coating it with the clear sparkle embossing powder before cutting it out with the coordinating dies.

This angle shows off the sparkle and shine a bit better which I added to the snowy hill, greeting, snowflakes and frosty flurries in the background.

Card No. 8: For my next card I started by inking up a 4" x 9" panel panel with a blended rainbow using Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet Distress inks. Next I used those Same ink colors to stamp a subtle snowflake print using the small snowflakes that come with the Snowman Kisses Stamps. I then layered it with the stitched rectangle from our Slimline Scalloped Frame Dies.

For my snowmen I colored their hats, mittens and scarves in colors to match the background using Tombow ABT Pro Markers (borrowing mittens from our Feeling Frosty Stamps). I then stamped a punny greeting mixing words from our new Snow One Like You Stamps and Fall Friends Stamps (cutting apart the phrase with my scissors). Lastly I added snowflakes which I had die-cut using our 
Lacy Snowflakes Die and Snowflake Circle Frame Dies, inking them with the same distress inks to match my background and topping them with coordinating jewels.

Card No. 9: For this winter themed card I used the fourth snowman and sweet greeting from the new Snowman Kisses Stamps. I don't know why, but I thought it would be fun to color two and make them twins.  For my whimsical background I paired a fun pink confetti print and matching colorful stripe from our new Joyful Holiday Paper pack and added a scalloped edge with our Icing Border Dies. To frame my pair of snowmen I used our Scalloped Circle Tag Dies and added my greeting to a pennant strip from our Stitched Rectangle Dies. As a finishing touch I added a sheer red bow to the top of my tag which I adhered with some liquid Multi Matte Medium.

Card No. 10:  Up next is a card combining our new mini Snow One Like You Stamps with two of the snowmen from our Snowman Kisses Stamps. I started by inking my background using our Forest Trees Stencils with Spun Sugar, a light amount of Wilted Violet and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks, letting the colors fade to white to save myself the step and extra bulk of adding a separate piece for the ground. I then went back and added a little glitter to the right side of each tree using the nozzle tip of the Star Dust Stickles. While my background was drying I colored my snowmen and girl using Tombow ABT Pro Markers and stamped a "Happy New Year" greeting to match using our Holiday Greetings Stamps.Sunny Studio Happy New Year Snowmen Card (using Snow One Like You, Snowman Kisses & Holiday Greetings Stamps and Forest Trees Stencils)

    ReplyDelete
  33. We love the fabulous melody & kid's choir singing on "Christmas Canon" by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. We'd always try to find any local Christmas-music-only channel on our car radio every time we were traveling during the holidays. I can still hear it playing as we'd drive along in the dark trying to reach our destination. We're so lucky we were able to travel so much for so many years. Since travel is no longer possible for us, we're happy to have so many "Remember when we were..." memories to refer to whenever we hear that song.
    Another set of adorable stamps. Looking forward to tomorrow!
