Ink Stamp Share August Bloghop - Autumn/Winter Mini

Oh hi there! Welcome to those who are here for the first time. I’m Roshnee from Paper Dragon Creations, a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator from Hertfordshire. This is my first time participating in a Blog Hop and I hope you’ll enjoy the project I am sharing here today.

Today’s showcase is for items from the new mini-catalogue which launched this earlier this month.

For my project I’ve decided to go with the Penguin Place bundle along with the Whimsy & Wonder and Peaceful Place designer series paper.

We are a penguin loving household (not kidding!) – and my daughter has a set of baby penguins which are all white and light grey. I’ve used this as my inspiration for the card.

The card can be folded to fit into a standard A6 sized envelope.


Cardstock Basic Gray A4: 29.9cm x 15 cm


Long edge panels: (x2)

Basic White: 14.7cm x 4.7cm

DSP layer: 14.5cm x 4.5cm

Square panels (x6)

Basic white: 4.7cm x 4.7cm

DSP layer: 4.5cm x 4.5cm

Middle long panels (x3)

Basic white (x2): 4.7cm x 9.4cm

Silver Foil specialty paper (x1): 4.7cm x 9.4cm

DSP layer (x2): 4.5cm x 9.2cm

Basic white layer for sentiment (x1): 4.5cm x 9.2cm

To create:

  1. Score the Basic Gray piece (long side): at 5cm and 10cm at both ends

  2. Cut (short side) only between the top and bottom score lines (not till the edges) at 5cm and 10 cm. (This creates two slits in the middle of the paper whilst the edges are still intact.

  3. Fold at the score tiles alternating between mountain and valley folds to create a zig zag fun fold card.

  4. Adhere the layers (basic white and DSP) onto each of the front panels. On longer centre panel: the sentiment was stamped and embossed with Versamark and Silver embossing powder. The sentiment chosen was from the Encircled In Warmth stamp set. The completed sentiment layer was adhered onto the Silver Foil layer before adhering onto the card base.

To decorate the card:

  1. I used Smokey Slate and Basic white to build the penguins. Their faces were stamped on with Smokey Slate ink.

  2. The colourful presents were cut of from the Whimsy & Wonder DSP and used to place around the card to make it seem the penguins were exchanging gifts. One of the penguins was even sitting on a wobbly pile of presents.

  3. I used the laser-cut Wonderful Snowflakes pieces to decorate the edges and also place behind the penguins to create more layering. I cannot tell you how amazing these snowflakes are. They’re shiny. The look so delicate – but don’t let that fool you because they are quite versatile. You can cut them without the whole thing falling apart -they are definitely sturdier than they look.

Thank you for joining me today. I hope you’ve enjoyed this project and it’s inspired you to create something too. Before you head on to the next post on the Blog Hop, take a moment to subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss any posts.
