Penguin Day!


Hi everyone,

It’s time for another challenge with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week it is my turn to host the challenge.

Apparently today is Penguin awareness day.... so seeing that one of the members of our  CCEE Stampers Design Team loves penguins, how could I not use this for our challenge today. So for this challenge all you need to do is to include a penguin of some sort on your card ... be it stamped, punched etc!

I had lots of fun with this challenge and took the opportunity to play with my Cricut Gypsy to create some shaped cards using the Cricut Create A Critter cartridge … love this cartridge. First up I created a Penguin shaped card …. what fun!


For my second card I used the igloo which is also on the Create A Critter cartridge and turned this into a shaped card and then I cut out a smaller penguin and added that to the front of my card. The white portion of the igloo I cut using white glitter card and then I sponged around all the cut lines using blue ink.

Don’t forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
