It’s Virtual Stamp night over on Splitcoaststampers. The first challenge is hosted by Lydia. She is asking us to create a card with something that gives us the “Warm Fuzzies”. Who wouldn’t get the warm fuzzies looking at this darling image. Plus the sweet penguin has a warm looking hat on.

To start out I stamped the Penguin’s first Snow image in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. The image was cut out with a Classic Square Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers ( Penguin: C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9, Y17, YR15, YR18   Hat: YG41, YG45, R30, R32   Snow: BG10, BG11). I covered the main image with a mask cut with Eclipse tape. But the snow flakes were too small for that, so I used Liquid Masking Fluid. The image was airbrushed with Copic Marker B04.

Stardust Stickles was added to the snow and snow flakes. Sugar Sparkly Fluff was added to the hat rim and pom-pom. The image was adhered to a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Postage Stamp Nestabilities die.

A 1 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ strip of Echo Park Holly Jolly patterned paper was adhered to the lower part of a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of the same paper pack. The lower corners were rounded. White Crochet Lace was adhered above the paper strip before White Organdy Ribbon was tied above teh paper strip. The image was adhered over the ribbon with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy’s Seasonal Greetings. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with Standard Circle Nestabilities die. The center of the circle was colored with Copic Markers B0000 and B000. The layers were adhered to a card base a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Solar White cardstock, folded in half.  Part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl and additional Rhinestones finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have time to play with us tonight.
Have a great evening.
Hugs and smiles
