Penguin and Friends Sale-a-bration


Welcome to the 

Silver to Silver Elite Blog Hop

What's more fun than playing in the snow with your friends?  


Playing with FREE products from Stampin' Up! Of course!

The cards above were made using products from the New Mini Catalog (July to December 2021) and FREE products from the Sale-a-bration (3 August - 30 September 2021) catalog.  The Sale-a-Bration event is going on now until September 30th.  

Included in the Penguin Place Bundle are stamps and dies for the Penguin PLUS adorable add-ons.  As shown, you can add a hat or reindeer antlers to "dress up" the penguin and his friends or attach a birthday balloon, evergreen tree, or presents.  And if that's not enough, you can stamp a single penguin sliding down the hill or have him joined with several of his penguin buddies.  Talk about cuteness overload!

Items from the stamp set were used to add details to the cards while the playful characters were fussy cut from the Penguin Playmates Designer Paper.  The adorable paper can be earned for FREE by spending $50 (not including taxes and shipping) on Stampin' Up products found in either the current Annual Catalog or the new Mini Catalog. (You can download the pdf of both catalogs via the links on the right side of this blog).  

The 12x12 paper pack includes pages of characters along with several coordinating papers such as the tree background paper shown above.  To create the snowdrift, I simply cut a curving line on some Basic White cardstock and placed it over the designer paper. Pale Balmy Blue snow drift lines where the characters are placed are created using the stamps from the Penguin Place Bundle (#156789 found on page 33 of the Mini Catalog (July - December 2021).  The stampset also has wonderful sentiments, such as the ones used in the cards above.

You can order the bundle using the "Shop Online" link provided on the right and if you use my current Hostess Code   ( AUGUST Code is.  3U4SGMYY ) you'll receive a special gift from me as a thank you.
