Dancing Penguin by Diane Hover

Hi, Diane  with you and my fun

Side Board Easel card.

Not only is this an easel card, but it is also

an 'action' card.

Let me show you quickly how I created it.

The snowflake image is from Crystal Snowflake 868  stamp set.

It was stamped in Versamark VM001 

and embossed with  Indian Spark EP273 embossing powder.

Using  TH 5” Mini Scissors 816E (These are my go to fussy cut scissors),

I easily fussy cut the snowflake out.

A little tip for fussy cutting is to trim away the larger pieces as you go

making it easier to cut around your image.

Next using the newly released stamp set Dancing Penguin 913,

I stamped him with Versamark VM001

and embossed with Black Detail EP171

He was colored in with Copics first, I didn't worry too much

about my coloring as I knew I would be covering him up for the most part with glitter.

It just helps to use the same color as your glitter

so nothing shows thru.

I always start at the top and work my way down, adding one color at a time.

I used my Glitter Brush SG1400 in-between each addition of colors.

I used  SNS Brushable Glue 540 and a small paint brush to apply,'making it

easy to apply the glue where I wanted it.

Glitter colors I used are 

Waterfall G1071Black Diamond GM2046 Tangerine GM2043

The 'fur' of the hat ws done after all my other glitters had dried (they dry FAST).

For the hat trim I used SNS Dimensional Glue 539

which puffs up, giving a bit of a 3d effect.

To that I sprinkled on Sparkling Snow G1003.


The card itself was quit easy that I found on Pinterest.

The measurements are

card base 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

top layer for that is 4" x 5 1/4".

For my top layer, I used a snowflake embossing folder that  I brayered

with Versamark VM001 and embossed with 

Sparkle EP107 embossing powder.

It gave it a very shimmery look!

If you scroll down a bit you can get a good look at it.

Once my little guy was all glittered up, I added a

SNS Action Wobbles AWS12

to the back of him so he could 'dance' on his snowflake

The background (measurements given below) was created by

randomly stamping a small snowflake from the same 

Dancing Penguin 913 stamp set with Laguna Bay ink from

Nuvo Diamond Hybrid Ink Pads Sea Siren 81N ink set.

To each snowflake I added CrystalGlitter Drops Emerald City 760N

The 'flap' of the card is 3" x 4 1/2" and scored at 2" and 4".

The 2"  side is adhered to the base and top base layer before the top layer goes on.

As show below I used ½” Tear-ific Tape SAT04

to adhere my top 2 layers on, the measurements for those are 

bottom layer 2 7/8" x 3 7/8" and top layer 2 3/4" x 3 3/4"

I also added to the CrystalGlitter Drops Emerald City 760N center of 

the large snowflake.

The sentiment was die cut using a small die from the 

Ribbon & Bow Layering Die Set 1461E 

and stamped with the same Laguna Bay ink.

I know this is picture heavy but honestly it was a lot 

easier then it looks!
