Welcome to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Magical Winter Moments Blog Hop!

Hop along with us as we celebrate Winter's Festivities.  If you arrived from the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog  then you are right on track. If not start there for all the details on the great prizes you could win by leaving comments along the way.

What says Winter Festivities more then a Penguin in a top hat fit for Liberace? For this card I used  two stamps from Stamp Set 438 - Playful Pengie and  three glitters Sparkling Snow G1003, Fiery Fushia G1004 and Laser Blue G1074  a couple of Spellbinders Circle dies and Grommet Tag die, Grand Calibur and metallic paper and tiny rhinestones.  To view the complete instructions click here.

Using this same Stamp Set 438 - Playful Pengie  I put the Candy Cane Pengie 3551-438C on an ornament  and dressed him up with Charcoal Glitter G1081, Sparkling Snow Glitter G1003,
Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft SS107 for his hat and Candy Cane Embossing Powder EP110.  The Candy Cane Embossing Powder looks exactly like its name.  The complete directions for this card can be found here.



Since we are talking  penguins and ornaments here is my grand finale...

Again I used the  Stamp Set 438 - Playful Pengie.  I used the Grand Calibur and Grand Oval die to cut out the card and a Crown turned upside down for the toppper on the ornment. I colored with copics, paper pieced the scarf and band on top hat. I made glitter paper with Denali Sky Glitter G1055 and  Super Adhesive Sheets SA602 and cut out snowflakes and topper.

I hope you have enjoyed the cards as much as I have enjoyed making them. Leave a little love (comment) before you hop over to the stunning, show stopping Shona

Wonderful! Through the computer screen the first card gives the impression that each penguin is on a plate. Besides a great card they would make great dinner ware.
