I carved and tested the baby penguin tonight. The print is definitely cute, if a bit flawed. I opted for clean lines instead of trying to replicate the fuzzy baby penguin fur and I'm glad I went with the simple look. However, I don't think the stamp is good enough yet for formal Christmas cards.

My new plan is to carve another version of this stamp at about a quarter of the size of this one. Smaller stamps are so much easier to print with and it would be fun to produce some more intricate patterns with this image.

Also, I should note that the beautiful homemade angel food cake in my previous post was made by my lovely sister. Thanks again, T.J.! My best friend sweetened the pot with a cheese cake as well. Two birthday cakes - definitely a good way to celebrate one's birthday!


  1. Cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute!!!
    Is the middle card (with the 3 penguins) for sale? Please say it is. I will look for it on Etsy... it's perfect for my parents :)

  2. Thanks, Grace! I will definitely be posting some on the shop. The cards above were just test runs and I'm hoping to make a more polished set. I promise to keep you updated!

  3. i think these guys are pretty darb adorable.
