Pretty In Pink Penguin Place!!!

Have you seen the Penguin Place Bundle in Stampin' Up!'s July-December Mini Catalog?! It is SOOOO cute!  A darling stamp set AND coordinating punch?!  Yes, please!  Here is the first (of hopefully many!) cards that I made with it.  How CAAAAA-UUUUUUTTTTTTEEEEEE are these penguins?!  😍😍😍

ColorsPolished Pink, Pool Party, Soft Sea Foam, Whisper White
Inks: Mango Melody, Polished Pink, Memento Jet Black  BLENDS: Polished Pink Light & Dark, Soft Sea Foam Light
Cardstock/Papers: Whisper White, Polished Pink, Pool Party
Stamps: Penguin Place
Tools: Artistic Dies, Stiched So Sweetly Dies, Penguin Builder Punch, Palette Knives, Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks
Accessories: Subtle Shimmer Sequins, Shimmery White Embossing Paste, White 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon, Baker's Twine Essentials Pack

There are quite a few details going on with the card also.  So let me point a few out.  First up...where is that fabulous Polished Pink striped paper that is on the side?!  Well...I made it!  Just a piece of Polished Pink cardstock & a Polished Pink Blends Marker to swipe some stripes on! So easy and fun, huh?!  You can totally use a ruler and make these perfect. But that wasn't the look I was going for here...I just quickly swiped them on the cardstock!

Then of course you noticed that FABULOUS Embossing Paste, right?!  I used the Plenty of Patterns Decorative Masks and Shimmery White Embossing Paste to add that fun textured detail.  I ♡ LOVE ♡ LOVE ♡ LOVE ♡ embossing paste!!!! (MAJOR SWOON product for me.). 

Also...used more Blends Markers for some fun detail!  Behind the penguins, I wanted a little "grounding" for them...I felt they needed a little color wash.  I had already cut out the label (from Stitched So Sweetly Dies) with just regular Whisper White cardstock (not the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper), so I didn't want to watercolor.  So I just added some color with the Light Soft Sea Foam Blends Marker.  Easy peasy!  Then splattered some coordinating ink on top!  I ALSO...wanted a little more pink tones on the card.  So...I colored a little spot with the Polished Pink Blends Maker onto Whisper White cardstock, stamped the greeting over it, and cut it out!  I LOVE that look and the fun color variation it gives! 

One more fun detail to point out...I added some glitter to the white part of the penguins with the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

So what do you think?!  What is your favorite detail?!  I love the glittery organdy ribbon and love that detailed die-cut in the background and the list goes on.  😀
