Christmas Card Club - Stampin' Up! UK Punch Art


Christmas Card Club Penguin
Another fortnight and time for another Christmas Card Club Challenge, set this time by Carol.
The challenge being to incorporate a penguin on your card.  I found this cute little fellow and adapted him slightly to what I had to hand, by googling Stampin' Up! Punch Art Penguin.  This is a great way to find images for punch art and often there are some explanations of punches used.

I've used the Hardwood stamp on my signpost and Happy Hour for my holly.  The decorative dots embossing fold gives a fab snow effect;  you might remember it was a gift during our annual Sale-a-bration promotion, but if you missed it you'll be glad to know it's going back online in our new annual catalogue which goes live on 1 July. If you haven't got your copy yet please contact me to make arrangements to get one.

Colours used above include soft sky, silver, garden green, real red, pumpkin pie, chocolate chip, whisper white and basic black.    The punches are numerous but to name a few circles, mosaic, scallop circles, owl punch and elegant butterfly.  Can you see where they all appear?

Please now visit all the blogs of the other lovely ladies in our Club as they have lots of gorgeous inspiration for you.

Have a great week and back soon with my Father's Day Card.  Can't show today as my Dad will get it on his return from a weekend with friends.

Hugs Zx
