Sunday Stamping With Jeanne Streiff: Whisk Penguin

When I asked Jeanne Streiff to name a few of her favorite Inky stamps, she replied, "I think I have most of the Petey the Penguin stamps (so I guess I'm a little partial to him!)."

She also said that she's a big fan of all the "punny" sentiments in our line.

So it's not surprising that one of the sets she chose to work with as Guest Designer was 11059LC Baking Penguins Clear Set (drawn by artist Tammy DeYoung):


Jeanne remarked about how the Whisk Penguin (0185J in wood mounted) is "very easy to color and oh so cute!" She added a few strokes with her ShinHan Touch Twin markers:


Then she paired it with the Whisking Sweet Holiday saying (0186E in wood mounted), along with a few ribbons and patterned paper, to create this adorable card:


Jeanne said it took just over a half hour to put it all together. We love the bold color palette and layered ribbon accents. Super cute and pretty quick, to boot!

Papers: Black & White Cardstock, Patterned Paper from The Paper Loft
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbons
Markers: ShinHan Touch Twin
Other: Foam Tape, Adhesive

1. Cut card back from black cardstock.
2. Cut strip from patterned paper.
3. Cut panel slightly smaller than card back add patterned paper strip and attach to card back. Doodle edge with a fine black pen.
4. Layer ribbon with adhesive and add to card.
5. Stamp and color image with markers. Trim and doodle border with black pen.
6. Cut black mat. Assemble and attach to card with foam tape.

Cute! Like the color combo and the hand drawn frame around the penguin. Have to remember to try that on my next card. Have a great week. Robin Barwacz
