Party Penguin


We are having the yuckiest weather today in Sydney its cold and wet…. prefect stamping weather I say! to help get my creative mojo going I popped over to one of my favourite sketch challenge sites…. i{heart}2stamp to check out the new sketch for this week…. I must say I {heart} this sketch!


Here is my Party Penguin….how CUTE is this little guy I have seen lots of creative ideas using the Stampin’ Up! Owl punch all over the web and I wanted to have a play myself, I have used quite a few punches on this card. The Owl Punch to create the Penguin I trimmed of the “ears”, the balloons are ¾” circles, and star punch was used on the party hat, the little triangle of the balloons and also for the noise.


As you know I LOVE doing the inside of my card and I am super happy with this one, because I stamped Happy Birthday on the front I added a little banner inside saying to you…..when you say it all together….. happy birthday to you……. the star punch was also using to make the banner.

    What an adorable card! So clever to use the owl punch to make a penguin!! And I really love how the inside is equally as lovely as the front.

    Teneale, I LOVE it! I’ve never seen something of yours that I didn’t like, and this is certainly no exception. He’s cute, cute – and I love your banner too. Thanks for sharing the tip with using the star punch; I just did one with the pennant stamp from Party This Way – it was quite big. I love your bow, too – you do perfect ribbon treatment. Well done.

    Cute Cute Cute … I “need” that owl punch … this is absolutely adorable. Did you see that this month’s Caardvarks challenge is to make a card that is decorated on the inside & outside … this certainly fits the bill.

  14. Lidiya says:

  15. Jane B says:

    The more I see that owl punch being used, the more I think “maybe I do want it…”. That penguin is flippin’ cute! The colours are great and I love the inside too.

  16. Kelly says:

    Hi Teneale… I had a chuckle at you asking for comment love, thinking surely you wouldn’t be lacking in that with your gorgeous creations…. and then realised that I often see your lovely cards but because I see them in a reader, I rarely actually take the opportunity to let you know how lovely they are…. I’m such a naughty lurker!! I totally LOVE your cutie penguin… and using the star punch to make your banner – awesomely clever!

  17. Kerron says:

    Ohhhhh geeeee, this is so cute, it’s adorably cute. Just love that penguin.
    Clever dick aren’t you?

  18. Ruth Norton says:

    That is way to cute!! I’m going to have to CASE this one!!! TFS!!!

  19. This is so cute! I love it, the tip about the star punch is fantastic, thanks so much for sharing this with us. I may have to case this for a good friends birthday in Nov. I’m sure she would absolutely adore it. I didn’t think I needed any more buttons, but you may of changed my mind, your pumpkin one looks great on the ribbon, the whole thing just shouts HAPPY!
    Lots of inky hugs from Charmaine 🙂

  20. Super cute! I’m definitely going to CASE this little guy!

    Your b’day card is adorable. And your design and clean and neat. My favorite! Thanks for sharing!

  31. Marette Ekart says:

    Teneale-I have never seen another stamper with the talent and ability you have to combine dsp in such flattering combinations. You make the look fresher and show them in a new light. Even paper I was not attracted to in the slightest bit comes out looking fabulous when you lay your heart and hands on it. Stampin’ UP! should beg you to design for them. You are truly an inspiration and I am in awe of you. Thank you for sharing..I consider it a gift to look at your artwork.

  32. Donna says:

    wow… sooo sweet!
