Whimsy Stamp’s World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop

World Card Making DayHappy World Cardmaking Day!  I am so glad you joined all of us at Whimsy Stamps for this amazing day of sharing our handcrafted projects with you all.

World Cardmaking Day is a day dedicated to celebrating the art of handmade cards – whether made with construction paper and crayons or with more sophisticated supplies. As we crafters can all agree, a store-bought card, while nice, just can’t replace the personal and thoughtful nature of one made by hand. Today, the Whimsy Design Teams are honoring this craft with two hops – one here and another on Instagram. For each hop Whimsy Stamps is giving away a $25 gift certificate to the store. To increase your chances of winning, be sure to leave a comment on each stop of the hop. All comments must be left by midnight EST on Saturday, October 12th. One winner will be randomly-chosen from each hop, and both winners will be announced on the Whimsy blog on Sunday, October 13th.


The card I have to share with you today is using the adorable Penguin Trick or Treaters Rubber Cling Stamp coupled with the Notched Rectangles Die Set.

Not many people know that Penguins are my favorite animal.  I SO wish I could have one as a pet…lol!  This little trio is just simply adorable all dressed up for a night of trick or treating!


I stamped these super cute penguins onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored them with the following Copic Markers.

Penguins:  W8/7/5/3/2 – Cheeks:  R30/00-CB
Bellies:  E40-BV20-YR30-CB
Beaks & Feet:  YR27/24-YR16/15-Y15
Sheriff Badge:  Y15/11-YR23
Sheriff Hat:  E55/33/31/30/50
Greens:  YG17/03/01
Reds:  R89/46/27/24
Purples:  V09/17/15/12
Pumpkin:  YR27/18/16/15/12

Penguin Trick or Treaters

I drew in the detail on the little pirates treat bag with the markers that I used to color other parts of the stamp.  I hand wrote the word BOO on his bag when I was done with the design.

I die cut the image with the Notched Rectangle Die Set and matted it with black paper before adhering it to the card with foam tape.  Orange rhinestones were added to the corners of the black for added interest.
