Whipper Snapper Penguin Ike Card

I've discovered a new to me, kind of local, scrapbook store recently. In addition to lots of scrapbooking goodies, they sell stamps (like Lawn Fawn and Paper Smooches as well as others). On a visit a few weekends ago, I got to chatting with the very nice clerk. She pointed out some new Whipper Snapper rubber mounted stamps they had just gotten in. Okay, I love Whipper Snapper images. My friend, Kathi, used to create super cute cards with them a few years ago (when she was still creating and blogging...miss your posts, Kathi!). It was hard to choose an image, but the clerk told me what she did with this Ike Penguin stamp and I decided to get it and play, too. *Ü*

Isn't he just adorable?!

The clerk at the store told me she uses chalks to color her images and what sounded like a blender pen. I have chalks and a blender pen that I haven't used in forever, so I dusted them off and got to work! It was fun, but I do think I like coloring with pencils a little bit more. ;)

Another item I picked up on this trip to the store is a Wink Of Stella pen (link added to show you what it looks like) in clear. I have heard others rave about the pen. How it adds just the right amount of shimmer with its brush tip. I put it on the ear muffs, the band connecting the muffs and his tummy. Unfortunately, the camera didn't pick it up very well. But it looks great in person. *Ü*

I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder, circle Nestabilities, a snowflake (Winter's Butterfly) stamp in Sky ink(CTMH) and some pattern paper from DCWV. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
We are bracing for an Arctic blast, if the weatherfolk can be trusted. It's been in the 60s and sunny for several days, but with this system tomorrow the high is supposed to be 10! On Thursday, a high of 7 is forecast. Anywhere from 4-8 inches of snow is also predicted. 
Brrrrrrr!
Guess we've been spoiled a little too long.

Your card is so darling Jeanne. That little penquin is too cute. So fun that you found a new scrapbook store.

I hope you stay warm with the arctic freeze that's headed our way.

Super cute card! I love the frosty, snowy feel of it. Isn't that Wink of Stella glitter brush a REALLY good thing? I have several, cuz I never want to be without one! :)
