Hi there, it’s Karen here today and I have a cute little penguin card to share with you. I have to confess, I really struggle to make clean and simple cards. But I wanted this card to be sweetly simple, so I reined myself in when making this one. I had thoughts of adding glimmer paste, sequins, maybe an action wobbler etc, but I kept to my original idea of a CAS card. And I’m so glad I did because I actually love how this card turned out and how the penguin is the focus of the card. Plus, it was a super fast and easy card to make! I used the Penguin with a Heart stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs for this one.
I started by ink blending some Distress Oxide inks in Worn Lipstick and Kitsch Flamingo through a heart stencil (I used the “Love Splash” stencil from A Colorful Life Designs) in the lower right corner of my card front. I coloured the penguin with copic markers (N6, N4, R39, R29, R35, Y19, C1, and C0), and then cut him out and popped him up on foam tape for some dimension. Although I made this card into a baby card, it could so easily be a thank you card, birthday card, or sending hugs just by changing the sentiment. This particular sentiment is from Taylored Expressions Simple Strips Background stamp set, and I also popped it up on foam tape.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you’re having a great day!

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with Gerda Steiner Design’s stamp set named, Santa with Letters. It's such a cute set that you can do a bunch of things with (I have a couple more ideas).
The first project I wanted to create was, of course, a holiday card. I stamped out the Santa first and colored it up with Copics. Since this Santa is holding a banner, I wanted to...
