Penguin Pals with Sunny Studio

 Hi friends! Today, I'm over on the Sunny Studio blog sharing a couple of cards I made with one of my favorite sets, Penguin Pals. While this set can certainly be used to make holiday cards, I love that it can be used to create winter themed cards, as well!


I chose a cool color palette in pinks, and purples, with a pop of aqua, to create these fun cards...perfect for Winter birthdays!


For my first card, I created a slimline birthday card. To begin, I cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock, using the rectangle die from the Slimline Scalloped Frame Dies. I ink blended the background with Milled Lavender, Seedless Preserves, and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks. Next, I splattered some white acrylic paint onto the background and white heat embossed some snowflakes to create a fun snowy sky. 

I stamped, colored with Copic markers, and die cut images from the following sets:


Copic Colors:
Aqua: BG49, BG13, BG11, BG10
Pink: R39, RV66, RV55, RV63, RV52
Green: G40, G21, G24, G28
Purple: V09, V17, V15, V12
Orange: Y35, YR04


Next, I die cut some snowy hills using the Slimline Nature Borders Dies from white cardstock, inked the tops with Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide, and attached to my inked background. I then tucked the trees behind the hill, and trimmed to fit the width of my card before attaching it to a white Scalloped Frame Die. Lastly, I attached the colored images to my card, using foam tape for dimension, then stamped the sentiment from Penguin Pals in black ink along the bottom to complete it.


To make this fun shaker card, I started by cutting a rectangle from white cardstock, then used the Stitched Arch Dies to cut out a window. Next, I attached a piece of acetate to the back of the white rectangle, covering the arch window. I applied foam tape around the opening and added some Majestic Mini Sequins and other jewels from my stash before attaching it to a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock, ink blended with Blueprint Sketch, Seedless Preserves, and Milled Lavender. Next, I attached my shaker to a piece of 4 1/4 X 5 1/2" purple patterned paper from the Gingham Jewel Tones 6 X 6 Paper.

I stamped, colored with Copic markers, and die cut images from the following sets:



Lastly, I attached the colored images to my card, using foam tape on some for dimension. Next, I white heat embossed the sentiment from Penguin Pals onto a black sentiment strip and attached it to my card to complete it!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you were inspired to create some winter themed cards of your own! Have a great day!

Hugs,

Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop

 


Hi friends! I'm so excited to be joining Newton's Nook as a guest designer for their Deck the Halls Blog Hop! I had so much fun creating these snow globe tags, using products from the newest release. Keep reading for all the details and a chance to win one of two prizes!



To begin, I stamped the images from Snowman Greetings, colored with Copic markers, added highlights with a white gel pen, and die cut with the Snowman Greetings Die Set.

Next, using the Snowfall Roundabout, I stamped it onto Bristol smooth cardstock with clear embossing ink, then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then cut out the embossed images using a circle die, and ink blended them with Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide inks. I cut a snowy border and attached it to the bottom of the die cut circle.

I created the snow globe base by simply cutting a piece of wood grain paper 1/2" thick and trimming the edges at an angle. Next, I white heat embossed the sentiment from Snowfall Roundabout onto a red cardstock banner and attached to the snow globe base.


Lastly, I attached the snowman images with foam tape for dimension, punched a hole on the top, and tied on some red and white bakers twine to complete my tags. Such fun and easy tags to really add a special touch to a gift!
