Watch Along Wednesday – pretty penguin snowglobe with the Build-a-Character Stamp and Dies

Crafter's Companion – 13/11/19

Welcome back to another incredible installment of our Watch Along Wednesday series! Today, we’re well and truly back on the Christmas train with the Gemini Build-a-Character Stamp and Die sets! With an array of adorable animals and figures included, we just know you’re going to fall head over heels for them – especially the pretty penguin that’s featured in this post.

In today’s video, David takes things up a level with a slightly more advanced project. You all know how much we love a shaker card, so David uses his penguin to create the focal point inside a snowglobe shaker. The effect is just stunning! Of course, you can create any character that you like, but this penguin looks so happy inside his winter wonderland.

If this sounds like something you’d love, take a look at the video below!

All you need is a die-cutting machine, a die and your chosen card or paperstock. Simply place the die with the blade side facing upwards on to your cutting plate. Add your chosen paper on top, then sandwich the whole thing with another cutting plate. Slowly roll this through your die-cutting machine and you’ll be left with a crisp cut every time.

The stamps are made from the highest quality clear acrylic, which means that you can see straight through the stamp to line up the image accurately. Just adhere your chosen stamp to an acrylic block or Rock-a-Block and stamp away! This means that you’re guaranteed accurate impressions every time.

There a whole family of cute characters to collect alongside this penguin, like Santa Claus, Joyful Snowman, Festive Robin and so many more! This means that you can put your very own little scenes together and create winter landscapes with ease.
