Dare 2B Artzy Guest Designer - Week #3

Hello & Happy Sunday Crafty Friends!
I'm back as Guest Designer for
Dare 2B Artzy during the month of January!

This is my Last Post (inserting SAD FACE)
 I have totally enjoyed my time here and can't THANK
Everyone at Dare 2B Artzy Enough for having me
be apart of their team this month!!

Now, Let's see what I made this week --

Isn't this just the Cutest??? OMGOSH! I LOVE this

I started out by using some 110lb White Cardstock - then I Die cut a piece
of Neenah Silver Metallic Cardstock with a Postage Frame Die

I found some Stitched Slope dies in my stash & die cut them out
to create 3 different layers -- Then I pulled out a Background design 
I made using the Baby Wipe Method -

I adhered the white snow slopes to my Background design
then I used a Rectangle Stitched die to trim it down
the final size was 3 1/4 x 4 1/2

Here's a close-up, so you can see this sweet Penguin riding on his sled
and I think the sentiment says it all! He looks like he's just having a ball!!

I stamped all the images on some KOH-I-NOOR Bristol
Smooth White Watercolor paper - Then colored them
with my Zig Real Brush Pens - I added some Clear
Wink of Stella to the Hat & Scarf 
I adhered the Sled to the slope and then used some
Dimension to POP up my Penguin over the sled --

The Sentiment was made by using 2 circle dies
to help give it that curved look - then I just
fishtailed the ends to give it a banner design --
I popped the sentiment up as well and now
my card is ready to mail off!

Thanks so much for joining me this month!

Another winner, Theresa! I wish I could be inside your head!!

The penguin is a great image (love his pose!) but you really brought him to life with your background and snow slopes. The way you made the sentiment element was so clever!
