Snow Place is a simply adorable photopolymer stamp set in the Stampin’ Up! 2015 Holiday Catalog.  This dapper penguin said “ink me first!”

My sketch for this week was inspired by this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO414).


  • I loved the simplicity of cropping the stamped penguin with a coordinating die.  Ditto on his handsome scarf and both popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

  • It’s a beautiful thing.  Save 15% when you purchase the Snow Place stamp set and the 15 coordinating dies as a bundle.

  • The stamped snowflakes twinkle with Stampin’ Up! Rhinestone Basic Jewels.  For balance, I added a rhinestone to the penguin’s scarf.

      • Thank you so much!! My son adores penguins so I am going to CASE your card for him. Love the layout. Thanks again for always sharing your inspiring projects with us!

  13. Mary I truly love this holiday card! Your right the colors are awesome together.

  14. What an adorable little guy. Looking forward to playing with this set this week.

  15. You do continually inspire with your talent! This color combo is just fabulous! We don’t get snow down here in Baton Rouge, La., but we love to dream….thx for making it possible.

  16. Good question, Marlene. I used my snips to make a shallow cut in the middle of the banner. Then lined up and cut from each corner to the top of the cut. Pretty easy as long as you keep your eye (and snips) on the corner and top of the cut.

  17. Great card!! It’s simply wonderful – love everything about it! Did you use anything to make the banner/pennant piece or was it cut by hand?

  18. This little penguin is OH SO CUTE!! Dressed to “chill”! LOL! Love how you wrapped him with that little scarf and topped it off with a rhinestone! I agree with Trish! I’m always totally amazed with your simple yet powerful designs!!! LOVE IT!

  19. Did you say you loved this card, Kadie? LOL. I really enjoyed using Snow Place stamp set and the Snow Friends dies. Great look with a smile for young and old!

  20. This is one of those cards that stopped me in my tracks. LOVE every single thing about your card. Going to share with Hailey and I’m sure she will want to make some for her friends this Christmas. (Did I tell you how much I LOVE this card?)

  21. Thank you both for stopping by. I appreciate your sweet feedback so much!

  22. You continually amaze me with your simple but powerful designs. Thank you for sharing. Love this card:)

  23. Love your card…layout…colors!
