I absolutely love adding cute characters to my cards especially when they are exciting new characters!  For today's card design, I am sharing a BRAND NEW character that Stampin' Up! are giving us in the 2021-22 Annual Catalogue that launches on Tuesday...puffins! 

I created this card with a fun background stamping technique inspired by Michelle Last, my lovely friend and upline. 

To create the block feature in the background on this card design, I have used an Acryllic Block, added ink and spritzed water onto it before adding to Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper and leaving to dry.  

The Party Puffin Stamp Set is a brand new product available from the 4th May in the 2021-22 Annual Catalogue and I just love the combination of cute images and fun sentiments that it has to offer.

I created this card during a recent Facebook live demonstration which you can watch back at anytime.  Click the image below to watch on my Youtube Channel.  Don't forget to click subscribe to be notified of future demonstrations and tutorials from me.

  1. Adorable Puffin card! What did you use for the "dot & dash" border, it doesn't seem to be listed?

    1. Thanks so much. I have used a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker for the border.x

  2. You did it by hand? Oh my, you're creative!
