Huge slimline scene with Penguin Palace

- Werbung/Ad - 

Hi and welcome to a new blog post!

Today I'm sharing a new card that I made using several stamp sets from Penguin Palace Stamps!


I used 5 stamp sets! That's what I love about Penguin Palace's products! They are so easy to combine with each other!
I used:

The Sweetest Truck & Penguin Perfect Cuts
Never Give Up & Penguin Perfect Cuts
My BFF & Penguin Perfect Cuts
Summer Sunshine & Penguin Perfect Cuts
Bee Happy & Penguin Perfect Cuts

I began this card by die cutting my card panels. I used slimline dies from Trinity Stamps. I die cut 3 stitched slimline panels and 2 of them were die cut with grassy hill border dies.
I ink blended tumbled glass Distress Oxide Ink over the stitched panel. Then I ink blended mowed lawn and shabby shutters Distress Oxide Inks over the grassy borders.


Next I stamped out all the images from the 5 stamp sets and colored them in with my Copic Sketch markers. This took me hours and hours! After coloring I die cut them with the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts and added white dotted highlights to the images.


To finish off, I assembled my card! I used liquid glue and foam tape to create dimension on my card.

Creating such a big scene is always exciting - you never know what will be created at the end, because you always change your ideas!


I hope you like my card!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

Hi and welcome to the Papercrafters Unite Against Racism Blog Hop!


I'm happy to participate in this great and important hop organized by Justine Hovey! Justine wrote a blog post where you can find more information about the hop, full lists of participants, ways to help, etc.!

The goal of this hop is to come together to stand behind our crafty sisters and brothers of colour not just in the art industry, but also to show our support in the never-ending fight for equality all over the world.

I made a card for this hop to show that we are all friends and that everyone is loved.


Any kind of racism is unacceptable!

Stay Sweet with Penguin Palace

Hi there!

Today I'm sharing a cute card that I made using The Sweetest Truck from Penguin Palace


I began this card by die cutting two card panels with the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays dies. With the larger die I cut an A2 sized panel with pattern paper and with the smaller die I cut white cardstock.


Next, I took a heart die and cut masking paper with it. I put the negative of the die cut onto my white panel. Then, I stamped out many little images from The Sweetest Truck to fill this heart. I colored them in with my Copic Sketch markers. I also stamped the little girl and a donut and cut them out with the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. After coloring the little girl, I added highlights with a white gel pen.


I chose a sentiment from the Rabbit Cafe, which goes so well with my card!

To finish off, I assembled my card and adhered the little girl with foam tape.


That's it!

I hope you like my card!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

Wobble Card with Penguin Palace

- Werbung - 
Hi there!

Today I'm sharing a fun wobble card that I made using The More We Get Together from Penguin Palace


I began this card by stamping images from this stamp set. I colored them in with my Copic markers before die cutting them with the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I used the largest dies from the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays and the Cross Stitched and Dots Large Ractangles Overlays to cut two panels. Then I cut the Dots Meet Dashes panel with a wave border die from My Favorite Things.



I ink blended the Cross Stitched and Dots panel with squeezed lemonade Distress Oxide ink. Next I used a stencil from My Favorite Things and ink blended squeezed lemonade Distress Oxide ink over it to mimic sunrays. This time with more pressure for a brighter ink blending.
I ink blended mermaid lagoon and broken china Distress Oxide inks over the other panel. Then I used again the stencil and ink blended white pigment ink for the reflection of the sunrays in the ocean.


I glued the panels onto an A2 sized card base and stamped the sentiment with Versafine ink. Then I played with the images to look how I could create my scene. I adhered them with liquid glue and with foam tape to create dimension. I had the idea to put the sweet cat onto an action wobbler for some extra on my card!
Here you can see the wobbler in action:




I hope you like my card!

Tea and Cappuccino with Penguin Palace

- Werbung - 
Hi there!

Today I'm sharing a new card using There's No One Like You stamps and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts from Penguin Palace
Here's a look at my card.


First I cut white cardstock for my card base. Then, I cut a smaller piece of white cardstock for the card panel.

Next I took Neenah cardstock and stamped out the images. I colored them in with my Copic Sketch markers and cut them out with the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. I chose soft colors for the coloring of tea sets and the cappuccino. The cute different faces are stamped onto the images. I like how you can change the images to these cute charcaters with these faces. 
I stamped the steam with VersaMark on vellum and embossed it with white embossing powder.


In the next step, I ink blended picked raspberry and worn lipstick Distress Oxide ink over the white panel and adhered this panel with foam tape to the card base. I arranged all the images and glued them down with liquid glue.



Then, I stamped the sentiment with my misti tool and finished off by adding different sequins/embellishments to my card.


I like how my card turned out! The pink background gives the perfect contrast to the soft colored images.



I hope you like my card too!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

The Coffee Truck with Penguin Palace

- Werbung - 
Hi everyone!

Today I'm sharing a new card featuring stamps and dies from Penguin Palace. I used three different stamp sets on my card! Here is an overview of my used products:

The Sweetest Truck & coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts
Rabbit Cafe & coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts
There's No One Like You
Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays

And here is a lookt at my card:


First I stamped out the images on Neenah cardstock and colored them in with my Copic markers. I did some masking on the truck, because I wanted to create a coffee truck. Then, I die cut them with the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.


Next, I die cut the card panel with the largest die from the Dots Meet Dashes Rectangles. I cut a mask for a path with my scissor and ink blended mowed lawn Distress Oxide ink over a grassy border stencil. Then, I removed my mask and ink blended pumice stone Distress Oxide ink.


For my sentiment I die cut "Coffee" with alpha dies from Lawn Fawn and stamped the coffee beans from the There's No One Like You stamp set with brown ink onto the alphas. I stamped "let's have some" and "together" with the same brown ink and die cut them with banner dies.


Then, I assembled my card. I adhered the images and the banners with foam tape and the "Coffee" alphas with liquid glue. After glueing the card panel to the card base, I added some sequins to my card and added white highlights with a gel pen.



I hope you like my card!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

Ocean Scene Shaker Card with Penguin Palace

- Werbung - 
Hi there!

Today I'm sharing a cute shaker card with Penguin Palace featuring  The More We Get Together stamps and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.


Next I took Neenah cardstock and stamped out the images. I colored them in with my Copic Sketch markers and cut them with the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.


Then I die cut two slimline card panels. One of them with two windows for my shaker element. I also die cut this panel with an ocean wave border die. I ink blended blueprint sketch Distress oxide ink over the first panel and peacock feather Distress Oxide ink over the second panel with the windows.


Next I glued acetate behin the two windos and adhered foam tape as a frame around the back of the windows. I filled them with different sequins and shaker mixes and then adhered another piece of acetate to close the shaker elements.

I put the card base and the card panels together and adhered my stamped images with liquid glue and foam tape.


I die cut the sentiment with black cardstock and glued it onto the background.

To finish off, I added white highlights with a gel pen and added some drops/sequins to the top of my card.


I hope you like my card!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
