Spellbinders Snow...What's Up Tutorial

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  I have a tutorial for Spellbinders to share with you - and I have to warn you - it is whimsical and so adorable!  I have also used stamps and Dies by three of Spellbinders Licensed Designers - can you pick who they are?!

This adorable little penguin has been created using fruit - yes, you read that right - you can see what I mean by following along with the tutorial.

1. Cut/emboss one pear/avocado from the Market Fresh by Debi Adams The Pearfect Avocado Stamp and Die Set  - the larger one in black and the smaller one in white.
2. Cut/emboss one leaf in black and cut through the centre.
3. Cut/emboss two paws from the  Some Bunny Etched Dies My Little Red Wagon using kraft card stock.

4. Layer the white die cut onto the back to form the body.
5, Glue each leaf half to the penguin as arms, adhere the paws as feet.
6. Draw black eyes using Chameleon Pens Black Detail Pen and add white highlights.
7. Hand cut a tiny orange triangle for a beak and glue to the penguins face.
8. Place the die over the penguin, securing with repostional tape and add silver to the lower portion of the belly using the Tool 'n One and the Foam Applicator – Circle.

9.Stamp the Notebook Border Stamp Set Happy Grams #4 Collection by Tammy Tutterow using Black ink onto slightly larger blue card stock.
10. Cut/emboss the Shapeabilities Jagged Edge Etched Dies by Seth Apter using white textured paper.
11.Adhere the Jagged Edge inside the Notebook Border Stamp.
12. Pop up the penguin onto the card front using 3D Foam Squares.
13. Cut one Cascade Dots using cardboard (I have used a cereal packet) to create a stencil
14. Using the Stencil, create snowflakes using texture paste - allow to dry.
15. Lightly add liquid glitter to the snowflakes - allow to dry.
16. Pop up a layered computer generated sentiment to the top right corner of the card front.
17. Layer onto a white pre-cut card base using Crafty Foam Tape.
