Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Penguins

This week on April 25th it is World Penguin Day!! In celebration of these fabulous creatures we are celebrating by honoring Penguins in our challenge. We are looking for cards or projects that are honoring penguins. Either you can use a penguin stamp, or just make a card in penguin colors, black and white. Be creative and have some fun with it. Our prizes this week are

1st, this fabulous stamp set from our lovely Paula :

We also have another prize from Creations from Penny:
8 images of your choice

Get your project on the challenge blog by next Saturday to be entered into a chance at these prizes.

For my box I used a template for a round topped box. It was hard to find the template, but I did finally find it on splitcoast stampers, the problem was I couldn't download it. I do have the template if you are really interested, so please e-mail me and I will send it to you. I used Papertrey's Night Sky Shimmer Cardstock to make the box. I then cut a round 2 1/2" circle. For my stamps I used all Elzybells penguin stamps. I colored them with my copics and added lots of glitter to make it shimmer. For the icicles I did not have the icicle boarder punch from Martha Stewart, but what I did have was the Pine Tree boarder punch. I used that one, trimmed off the points on the trees creating triangles, and inverted it to look like icicles. Hope it worked. I punched the icicles out of my Martha Stewart glitter paper that came in an Easter pack of paper that I got at Walmart.

I'm giving this box full of jelly beans to a my friend Jan who is a true penguin lover. I'm spending time with her this weekend, and I know she'll love it.

Hugs xx

Your friend will be delighted to see you've created an adorable box to keep the jelly beans she sent you! What a fun idea!

I think this ROCKS, Carolyn!
(and I'm not just saying that because there's candy involved.)
