Joy Clair New Release Blog Hop with Penguins Tropical Christmas

Hello and welcome!  Today's the day!  The new release blog hop from Joy Clair Stamps!

This release is amazing and has such a great variety of stamps!  Check them all out HERE!

Today I am featuring the new set called "Penguins Tropical Christmas!"

Here's a look at the set:

So many cute images - I just fell in love with that polka dot bikini!
So I have 10 penguins in different colored bikinis - they're "BIKINI BUDDIES!"

Here's a closer look at my card:

Stamped and cut out the penguins, tree trunk and branches along with the coconuts - but I ended up not using the coconuts and opted for a poinsettia sticker for the middle of my palm tree.  I used lots of different colors of archival ink for the bikinis.

I laid out my palm trees and then worked on the arrangement for the penguins.

Below I was working on different penguin arrangements and I decided that I wanted them all to have the bikini on, instead of the shorts, grass skirt, etc.  I will use those on another card!

But aren't all the different varieties of clothes for the penguins just SO adorable?

And here's one more view of my finished card.  The bottom "sand" is really sandpaper from my husband's tool box!  So nice of him to share it with me for my crafty fun!
