Peekaboo Penguin Valentines

Peekaboo Penguin Valentines

I don’t know about you, but I love special little cards that have some kind of interactivity to them – especially for Valentines. And tiny valentines? They remind me of childhood and those sets I got to pick out…Betty Boop themed, or Disney, or whatever my passion of the day was. I decided to get out my Envie die set again and make one for my niece, and also a bunch for a church fundraiser I’m working on for Valentines Day. And I just got the little penguin and Eiffel Tower from Poppy Stamps too, and since I’m reminiscing about being in Paris almost a year ago – that was the perfect set to use. Watch the video below, or click HERE to watch on YT.

A few other tips to add – I just bought myself a new pad of Versafine ink recently – and I can’t tell you how much nicer it stamps than my 10 year old pad that’s been reinked over and over! It’s worth a little treat for yourself once in a while. 🙂

Aren’t these darling when all wrapped up with a bit of twine? Actually it’s hemp cord – which stays in place better than twine – it’s just slightly stiff, so you can bend it nicely into a bow.
