Penquins ... I LOVE penguins. They are so cute and so versatile too. You can use them for a holiday card, a wintertime card, a birthday card, whatever you would like. Stampin' Up! has some great penquins this year in our catalogs, so I just had to share them with you.
Here's two versions of the exact same stamp .. the one on the right was simply inked on a black stamp pad which inks the complete stamp to include the TO and the FROM and was stamped on Whisper White Card Stock. The one on the left I inked using our Stampin' Write markers and stamped it on Very Vanilla Card Stock. Did you notice the TO and the FROM are not stamped on the image? Also did you notice that the beak and the scarf are different colors?
When you ink with a marker, you can ink just the areas you want to show and also change out the colors too. I did a video on How to Ink Your Stamps and explained the use of markers in it. CLICK HERE to view the video.
Here is the penquin as a tag. All you need to do is add in a punched hole and a ribbon or you could use dimensionals and add to a package.
Here's my finished card. I added in some Big Shot die-cuts and some tiny penquins too from the Jolly Bingo Bits stamp set.
