DeeDee's Digis - So Cool Penguin

Hello and back to share a cute, cool DeeDee's Digi card. It's week 3 over at DeeDee's July Digi of the Month Challenge. Birthday cards are just one of the many ways you could use this month's featured set. Remember, the set -- "So Cool" -- is available for just $1.25 this month, or FREE with your order of $10 or more, and if you link up what you make with it to our challenge post by 2 August, you'll get next month's set for FREE. It's as easy as that to get this cool dude.

Here's how I chose to use chillin' Mr. P - who comes pre-colored, line art if you want to choose your own colors, and various sentiments.

 
 
- Digi printed twice on Neenah paper; one image die cut with S/B Label 5, edged with DI Broken China. Shading on tub and penguin with copics. Cut out the flippers and beak of #2 print, shaped with a medium stylus and reglued for some dimension. Diamond Stickles added to ice cubes to add a chill feel.
 
- background paper from Colorbok Bright Splash water color pack (Note: this is not water color paper, that's just what it was called. This was a $5 12x12 pack found in local Walmart and the colors grabbed my eye). Embossed with Sizzix Swirly Vine - just 'cause it reminded me of wave ripples. Did some DI sponging on the edges and corners with DI Tumbled Glass.
 
- sentiment is from the So Cool set, sponged with the Tumbled Glass, dabbed some Diamond Stickles around.
 
- Bakers Twine glued under the sentiment. Fiskars wave punch from the tiny strip of perforated edge of the DP - where it is fastened into the pack. Was just the right size to fit the punch, and then dabbed on some Diamond Stickles. This was one easy card once I decided where I was going with it. This will be for one of our August family birthdays.
 
Please check out DeeDee's Digi of the Month and start building your collection now! It's that simple.
 
On another note: Remember there was going to be a surprise when the followers list reached 250? Mr. RG selected #89 in the database where I list the names (and the blog link if I can find one) of each 'face' that shows up in the list at the top of the blog. #89 corresponded to Christine H. of  Christine's Cards and Crafts. So Christine, please contact me with your mailing info by July 18 so that I can mail some goodies to you, as a thank you for being such a loyal follower. Comment moderation is on, so if you choose to leave this info as a comment, no one but myself will see your data. If Christine does not respond by July 18, then RG will have another go.
 
 
Now I'm off to do another post with the promised pictures of what we're doing in the basement room for my stamping organization. That will be scheduled later this evening. So big Hugs and have a wonderful Wednesday. God Bless.

This is one cute penguin Mary, and I just love the expression on his face. The embossing goes perfectly, as you say just like waves, and that great play on words on the sentiment. A lovely card! x

Oh Momma Mary this card is just to dang cute!!! I love that little penguin in his tub of ice cubes. lol Love the shading you did and I love the stickles on the ice cubes, does indeed feel "chilly". That paper is pretty too and I love that you embossed it. I think WM has some pretty good papers at times. Love the punched edge you added and stickled. I have to get going on this little guy and see if I can get something made and linked up. He is just so cute!! A big Congrats to Christine too! Hugs, Brenda
