Penguins and Wooden Houses

So today is a big release day - we have brand new stamps and dies in stock for both Sugar Pea Designs and Mama Elephant - both of which are released in the states today and we have them ready in store so we can join in the release day fun!  So I'm here a couple of days early with a little newy-newness!

This adorable little penguin is from Sugar Pea's new Tee-rific stamp set and just love it.  I had to ink it up immediately and I decided to go girly as one of my friends is a keen golfer (apparently girls get to play too these days!)

She's simply coloured with copics and fussy cut and layered over the green which was watercoloured for a softer effect.  The hat, golf bag and flag were paper-pieced burberry style.  I added a pink argyle strip done the side using Lawn Fawn's argyle background.
I made another quick card using one of the dies from the last Sugar Pea release - the "Home Sweet Home" die was so popular and it sold out really quickly (we have them on back order) but I found a way to get a similar result using the Homescape die and Finley's alphabet from Lawn Fawn.

The House on the border die is the same height as the alphabet dies so you can create your own sentiment.  Here I die cut them from one of our own brand wood veneer sheets - you can see from the close up below that it adds lots of lovely texture.  I layered the house up over a heart die from Lawn Fawn - currently out of stock, but there are lots of other alternatives.

All the new Sugar Pea Designs products will be in store later tonight as it doesn't release until 6pm EST in the States today...

Jill will be here on Sunday and I'll see you next weekend.
