Silly Penguins for JBWW Challenge


I woke up this morning eager to make a card, I didn't feel "so hot" yesterday and could not focus on anything. Anyhow, I feel a lot better today and decided to make a winter themed card. It has been unseasonably warm in Michigan lately(upper 80's!) I decided to stamp the penguin trio from my Cats Pajamas Clearly Swanky Set for Sherry and Jeanne's JBWW Challenge. As a stamp, the penguins are a trio but I decided to make them individuals. I cut out and trimmed each penguin and used my markers to color in their caps. I applied yellow,green and blue Stickles to match their caps and used Liquid Pearls on the tips of the caps. I mounted the penguins onto a scalloped rectangle,that had brads to match the caps and used May Arts Ribbon to embellish. The sentiment is from The Cats Pajamas also.

cardstock: Papertrey Ink (white) and Bazzill (Baby Blue)
inks: Palette (Black) and Prismacolor Markers
ribbon: May Arts
stamp: The Cats Pajamas
sentiment: The Cats Pajamas
tools: Marvy's scallop rectangle punch (mega size)and my paper pierce tool
embellishments: Stickles Glue (Blue, Yellow and Green colors)and Liquid Pearls (White) The brads are from Making Memories and are in the regular size and the mini size.

Good Morning Malieta!

I saw these images on a card on SCS and I thought how cute they were. You did a wonderful job with the layout and ended up with such a cute card. I love how you incorporated the brads and the wavy sentiments. Great job!

Cute penguins. I like how you added swirled words at the bottom of the card. I keep forgetting you live in Michigan. It was announced that Sarnia (where I live) and Detroit broke records on Friday. I was stunned to drive down Lake Huron yesterday and see people swimming. I'm sure that has never happened in Oct before!
Happy WCMD.

These penguins are so darn cute. I really like the design you used in your card. Proud that you actually did something for WCMD. I zoned out on it this year, but am enjoying seeing what all you talented gals came up with.
