Poppers


     My hubby came in, looked at this card and wanted to know if these were Mr. Popper's penguins.  LOL  They look like they're getting into as much trouble so I'm calling them Poppers.  Their actual name is Christmas Penguins and they are from Stamping Bella's latest release.
     For my card I used last weeks inspirational photo and gave the Poppers a pastel forest of trees.


     I created some snowy hills for them and used a triple cut of the Simon Says Merry Christmas die embossed in gold for the sentiment.  Whew!  That tiny dot for the "i" was tough, but I got it embossed too.  I then added some sequins for a little Christmas sparkle.


Copics Used:
Penguins N3, N5, N7, N9, Y35, Y38, YR21, YR61, BG0000, BV20, BV23
bow R27, R37, R39
bells Y28

     I think these guys are so cute and penguins have become a hot item for Christmas.  We'd love to have you play along with the challenge.  Next week's theme is this great sketch.


     Just use something from Stamping Bella currently in stock in the shiny new store and email it to Emily by next Thursday.  Your project will be showcased on Blogabella along with what the Bellababes have created and you just might win the $50.00 monthly Bellabucks drawing.

    happy weekend!

  32. I have a real soft spot for penguins because my boy loved them growing up. These guys are adorable, and your coloring is just amazing. Love, love the scene you created with the tree background and all those snowy hills. The sequins look like falling snow. And the embossed sentiment is gorgeous. I have no idea how you managed to emboss that i dot, but it looks uh-mazing!!

  34. First of all I'd like to apologize for being MIA for more than a week, but we were in Germany (partly work, partly fun) and now in the midst of rebuilding the upper floors. Hence my absence. But I will try to visit you whenever I can Tracy! Even though I won't be able to every time you put up a new post. But when I do, I am able to enjoy your lovely work again and you most certainly have made such wonderful creations! Always a pleasure to see them! Thanks for sharing, hugs, Ira xox
