Angela's PaperArts: Penguin Place bundle birthday card

The new Stampin' Up! July-December mini catalogue launched recently, along with a second Sale-A-Bration catalogue for this year which is on now and ends on 30 September.

One of my favourite bundles from the new mini catalogue is the Penguin Place stamp set with its co-ordinating Penguin Punch.  As a bonus during Sale-a-Bration, you can also get the co-ordinating Penguin Playmates 12x12" Designer Series Paper for free too with an eligible $90 order.

So why do I like this bundle - because it's so cute and it's also a versatile bundle that isn't just for Christmas.  

For this week's card I made a birthday card featuring the bundle, the Sale-A-Bration Penguin Playmates DSP plus the Basic Border dies were used to create the 'clouds' background.

I have two tips to share with you for making this card:

Tip 1: Some of the penguins printed on the Penguin Playmates DSP can be punched out using the Penguin Punch.  The penguin on my card was one punched out of the paper instead of being stamped and punched out. I used a scrap post-it-note as a handle to make it easier to punch out the penguin.

Tip 2: If you have the recently retired balloon punch, you can punch out the stamped balloons using the small balloon in that punch instead of having to fussy cut them.

The products used are currently available and can be purchased from my online store if you live in Australia.
