A Sweet Shore Penguin!

This little guy is so adorable! Who could resist not colouring him?? I recieved several stamped images from Brandi a couple of weeks ago after a stamp/scrap excursion, we fell in love with this little penguin...need I say more?!
For this card, I cased a 3x3 card that Brandi made for me and made it into a full size card. I changed the colours, but kept the layout,DP,embossing folder and added some of the yummy ribbon I bought from Anne.
Notice the wavy embossing down the side of this card...this is using Cuttlebugs border folders that I got as a gift from Brandi!!! Wasn't that sweet of her? The DP is from Imaginisce, coordinated with the little penguins.
Finally, a closeup of the little fellow, He is coloured using rubbing alcohol and SU inkpads, added Crystal effects to his feet/body to give him some dimension (Brandi did that...wink)and used my stickles to his popsicle! How adorable is that?

Thanks for looking!

Figgy Pudding Sock Monkey~

This monkey made his debut in July...what do you know, I am only now showing his face on my blog. He falls in one of those "gotta love him, he's so ugly" categories!
Seriously though, I had to preorder him when he showed up in the SU he is available with the cutest accessories!!! BTW, this was my shoebox swap design a few weeks ago...loved monkeying around with old and new friends!
This is a close up view of our poor dear. I gave him some height using our dimensionals. He was titled "drunken monkey!!" because I coloured him using rubbing alcohol and pulling colour from the ink pads...I used Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding paper from last year. The colour is of course my favourite Chocolate Chip.

Materials list: SU!Sock Monkey set, Basic Grey Figgy Pudding DP, Chocolate Chip, Basic Brown inks, Soft Sky In-colour from last year, American Crafts Brads, Martha Stewart Ribbon was a perfect addition. (gasp...who??)Cuttlebug'd the background using distressed stripes and punched out the scalloped circle using Giga punch.
