Happy Friday, peeps! Hope you have something nice planned for the weekend, even if it's just staying home with loved ones! We have a fresh new challenge for you at As You See It, and it's a fun one:
I have about a gazillion sewing-related stamps, but I chose something a little out-of-the-ordinary for my card this week...a stitched penguin Christmas card! Here we go:
This little penguin stamp is from a Clearly Besotted set that is just full of fun "stitched" Christmas images, and since the Christmas Card Throwdown challenge is to use polar bears or penguins, I thought he would be fun to use!
All of my layers are diecut with stitched dies to begin wtih. My penguin is stamped in Memento Black with some Coastal Cabana accents, which is rather unusual for a penguin, but I wanted to incorporate the Color Hue colors in my card:
I put him on a background of Misty Moonlight DSP, gave him a Night of Navy scallop border, blue rhinestone eyes, and added a panel of Coastal Cabana gingham with a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings and some blue faceted gems. There is a little gingham heart in this set, so I stamped that in Coastal Cabana and fussy-cut it out for a little extra fun!
And how's this for a fun "stitched" sentiment, from the same set:
I also am using the sketch from Sunday Stamps:
Phew, a lot of challenge, but I think I got them all in there! I hope you'll play along with our stitched/sewing challenge! I know a lot of stampers are also sewing enthusiasts (I hate to use the word "sewers", LOL), so I am hoping we'll see lots of fun creations at As You See It! Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!
