Peachy Keen Kut Outs Blog Hop!

Hello! If you've just arrived from Janice's Blog, then you're heading in the right direction...if not please head back to the beginning HERE. You do not want to miss anything! Ok for my first card I cut the NEW Winter Character With Hunter Hat Die. {Yep! There are now dies to coordinate with the stamps!!! SO COOL!!!!!} I then stamped the Penguin Boy With Bobber onto it. As the name suggests, he is holding a fishing bobber BUT I turned it into and ornament. I used my white gel pen to turn the loop into a hook. I paper pieced the ornament and his adorable hat! I am officially obsessed with paper piecing. 
I stamped the sentiment from the Oh By Golly set onto the Real Estate Sign Punch. The Oh By Golly set  is chock full of awesomeness and the stamps are BIG...a total must have in my opinion! OH and if you look really closely at the ice he is standing on, you'll see it sparkle...that's because I painted it with some cool Ice Crystal Glitter Paint. This is great because you can get into tight spaces unlike with stickles! 
For this card I cut out the Igloo Die and stamped the Igloo stamp onto it. And THEN I took it up a few notches using embossing ink and UTEE {Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel}... you can see here...
EEK! Isn't it cool!!! Looks like real ice! :o)  I stamped the Igloo stamp and shaded in the blues and then covered the surface with Tim Holtz Embossing Ink {my fav} and then sprinkled on a layer of UTEE and melted with my heat tool. I then did a few more layers of UTEE to make the "ice" thicker. ;) The super sweet sentiment is also from the Igloo set. I just LOVE this awesome release!!! Ok, that's it for me...time for you to keep on hoppin!

Paper piecing gone wild, and I love the contrast of the polka dots on the flap of the hat. Your igloo card is beautiful! The glassy glaze makes it look like the real thing! Great job!!!
