Let it Snow...

with JustRite and some FlowerSoft, that is!
I LOVE this little penguin, darling as can be! I chose to stamp and color three and have them dancing in the snow. The clouds are created with a dauber and my trusty (old) SU stencil. The snow mounds are torn pieces of cardstock, edged with Flower Soft adhesive and Fresh Snow Polar White Flower Soft. I purchased my Flower Soft last Saturday while spending a wonderful day with my friend, Joan Fricker. She lives in Indiana, about two hours south from my home. Joan had a stamping friends gathering and I am so glad I was able to make it! Friends, scrumptious food, and shopping in her store (be sure to check it out, wonderful and top notch service), Joan's Gardens made for a perfect day! Joan's store products are listed on the left side of her blog! I did not take any pictures, but Joan posted some here! Thanks for the wonderful memories, Joan.
I used my Christmas Joy set for my colored Penguin image and my Let it Snow sentiment oval. After cutting out the Let it Snow oval, I rolled edges in glue (Tombow Mono Multi) and proceeded to roll the glue edges in PaletteUltraFine Prisma Glitter. This Christmas Joy set has a great mix of sentiments and images to create a wide range of cards, gift tags, or altered items. The Oval wooden 1 3/4" x 2 5/16" stamper is used for this creation.
After stamping my images in Memento Tuxedo black ink, I colored the penguins with the Copic markers shown. I went over the penguin body a couple of times with C7 and really thought it was dark enough. I LOVE the tiny, intricate, snipping of paper. So, I did not mind at all cutting these adorable penguins out to place in the snow! The fabulous ribbon is from Sharon Johnson, check out her store by clicking the tabs at the top of her blog. Plastic snowflakes are from my last years stash...trying to use those supplies!
HOPE you are having a marvelous Monday! It has turned cold here in Michigan already! Brr...I am not ready for real snow, Flower Soft polar white snow is the kind I choose! Take good care and thanks so much for stopping by!

Love the penguins! You always show so many ways to use the stamps--and not always using them the way they were originally intended! It looks like there is glitter on the flower soft--I haven't tried it yet--does it have a crystalline look to it? Very darling card!
