Cross Stitched & Dots

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with sneak peeks for Penguin Palace’s new release focused on standalone dies. The sets I’m focused on today are Cross Stitched & Dots Large Rectangle Overlays and Cross Stitched & Dots Small Rectangle Overlays. Combined, these two sets provide you with a variety of sizes for every 0.25.

Because of this fact, I actually trimmed the Cross Stitched & Dots Small Rectangle Overlays and kept the Cross Stitched & Dots Large Rectangle Overlays intact. I used a bit of purple tape on the back of the larger set, and added in the rectangles from the small set.

Using three different colors of paper, I ran all the die cuts through together. This actually helped me create three different backgrounds. The colors I used are: Precious Gem, Princess Decor, and Navy Seal. These papers are lightweight. For sure, I wouldn’t define them as cardstock. They actually feel like tissue paper but definitely don’t tear as easily.

I combined the three sets in alternating colors and created three backgrounds. Since I have three cards to decorate, I kept everything really simple.

For the first one, I used the Congratulations sentiment from the Congratulations stamp set. I stamped it and heat embossed on vellum, backing it on white cardstock and place it right over the background.

The second, I used the dog with balloons images from My Best Pal along withe the Happy Birthday sentiment. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it on the Navy Seal paper and cut it into a banner. I added some white clouds to the card to give it a little more white space.

The third card, I used both the Birthday Unicorn stamp and die set. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment directly on the background, masking off a portion of it. For the rest of the card, I wanted to fill up the space so I used two of the unicorns from the set and die cut a bunch of confetti.

I always love when I can create multiple cards from one project and this came together pretty quickly.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks. Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!

Congratulations

Hi everyone! I’m back today with with a sneak peek for Penguin Palace’s new release stamp set that contains essential sentiments Congratulations.

This is one of those essential stamp sets that you can pair with many images, but I wanted to focus on what you can do with just this set alone. It’s super easy!

I chose a rainbow variety of distress oxide inks and stamped “Hooray” diagonally across. I definitely do not stamp straight without help and I actually just use a pencil to mark off lines in advance so I know where to stamp. Once the ink dries, you can easily erase it. It makes for such a pretty background.

To finish off the card, I stamped the large “Congratulations” on vellum using Versafine ink and heat embossed using clear embossing powder. I ran this through my Xyron sticker marker and trimmed it down. This puts adhesive to the back of the vellum and you won’t notice it. The vellum softens the background so your focus is to the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks. Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!

It’s Your Day!

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with a sneak peek for Penguin Palace’s new release with another adorable set named, It’s Your Day.

In this set, there’s a variety of images but I focused on two of the characters and two accessory items. I wanted to create a small storyline of someone enjoying a glamorous day.

I stamped out the images I wanted to use on rectangles and I masked them off so I could use distress oxide inks to color up the background. I added both water and silver paint splatter to them for a bit more interest.

After coloring up the images, I lined the rectangle edges with a black pen creating a frame. I really loved how these came out. I wanted them to be the main focus but needed to add the sentiment for the card. I chose a piece of Smokey Eyes card stock and it has this really fine, pretty sandstone texture to it. It was a bit hard to picture, but you can notice it in the picture above. If you haven’t tried the cardstock from the store, I highly recommend it. I am really enjoying the subtle texture on the card stock that provides a little interest in the background but not deterring away from your main focus of the card.

I stamped the sentiments directly on the card stock, having no issues even with the texture and trimmed the card panel so I could mat it on black cardstock. I wanted to tie the black color back to the lined rectangles.

That’s it for today’s card. I really like the colors that pop against the neutral grey and I hope you enjoyed it too!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks. Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!

My Best Pal

Hello everyone! Here is a sneak peek for Penguin Palace’s new release with the awesome stamp set named, My Best Pal. This is releasing March 20th, so get ready!

I love the three doggies in this stamp set so I wanted to use all three of them. I didn’t want to create a full scene yet still have one. Sounds weird right?

To start off, I stamped out the two doggies in the set looking up. I masked one of them so it looked like one was standing behind the other.

Next, I stamped and masked the doggie with balloons on the top portion of the card. Using masking paper, I masked a circular area where the dog will be. With distress inks, I blended a few colors to create a nice background.

Using a few cloud die cuts, I added them to the circular area to add interest.

For the rest of the card, I just colored in the doggies and added some grass to the bottom. I trimmed the entire panel on the side by a quarter of an inch and mounted this one a blue card base.

Aren’t they all super cute? I can’t wait for you to see the rest of the items releasing!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks. Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!

Hi everyone! Thanks for checking out Day 2 of the blog hop for LDRS Creative. I’m sharing a simple card that’s easy to put together and gives you time for some relaxing coloring!

For today’s card, I’m using two stamp sets together that were both previously only available on HSN. My main image focuses on Polkadoodles’ Holly stamp set, Story Time. This is a larger image that takes up most of an A2 card panel. I stamped this on the bottom right of my card panel and colored it in.

Once I finished coloring this, I wanted to add a little color in the top left corner so I used Swimming Hole hybrid ink and blended it very lightly.

Since this set doesn’t come with a sentiment, I pulled out the If Friends Were Flowers stamp and die set. This set was also previously only available on HSN, and it has so many different sentiments that you can use. I die cut the large “friend” sentiment out of black cardstock and also stamped the smaller sentiment using Watermark ink with white embossing powder. It’s so perfect for this card.

I decided to trim the top and left of the card by a quarter of an inch. This helped the sentiment fill up the white space in the top left.

I’m loving this simple and clean card. As with most cards, all you need is an image and a sentiment. I’m loving how this turned out and I hope you did too!

Thanks for stopping by! Come back again soon for some more inspiration and ideas!

Hi everyone! Thanks for checking out the blog hop for LDRS Creative. I hope you’ve been enjoying all the new items and get inspired to create. I have a project using the new stamp set called Super Critters! It’s one of the new interactive stamp sets that was showcased at Creativation and I personally think it’s super cute.

I was drawn to the raccoon because it’s pretty adorable and it’s actually a critter I don’t see often in stamp sets. This particular raccoon is the image that has an interactive element to it.

I stamped the main image and the interactive body part (tail and leg) using Raven hybrid ink, which you can use with alcohol markers and watercolor. For the main image, you don’t need to color the tail and the left leg since you actually trim this portion off.

The interactive body part goes right behind the main image and is held together by a brad. I only had a star brad around, and this is ok because it looks like a little tattoo on the raccoon.

I used a few of the smaller images from the set to create a background scene. Using a pencil, I filled out the rest, including a little fence so the raccoon with her two paws could be looking over something.

Once I finish drawing everything in, I used an alcohol marker friendly pen to outline all the areas I drew in. I went ahead and colored everything bringing the scene to life.

For the main raccoon, I added a little bit of foam tape behind his head and behind his right leg. The foam tape gives the image enough dimension so that the brad and his tail and leg could move freely.

To finish off this card, I added the sentiment “You’ve Stolen My Heart”. I also used the little hearts from the Scalloped Rectangle Die and cut hearts from red glitter cardstock. It adds a cute touch to the card and corresponds to the sentiment.

I love how it turned out and I’m loving the movement. Check out the card in action over on my instagram!

Scene Card | Sweet Ride

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today to share a card I created using Penguin Palace’s stamp set named, Sweet Ride.

I’ve had this set for awhile now and I had a vision for this card but never had a chance to create it…. until now so I hope you get inspired to create!

I wanted a silhouette of the car and the couple watching a sunset or enjoying some kind of view. This card accomplishes this because the stamp set includes the front and back of both the car and people. I stamped them out and colored them in a greys to create a monotone feel.

I also created a blue and purple sky background along with using glimmer spray and white opaque paint to add texture. I added a cityscape over the sky so the couple could be peering at the city lights.

To ground the couple, I wanted them to be peering at the skyline from a distance so I added some water between the city and added grass for them to stand on.

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!

Get Well Soon | Penguin Palace

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share a card I created using Penguin Palace’s stamp set named, Get Well Soon. This is a smaller stamp set but a perfect one to wish someone good thoughts. I previously did a flip card that showed the sick mermaid and then flipped to a happy, healthy mermaid.

Today, I wanted to share this peek-a-boo card that is essentially the same idea just one step up from a flip card. There are a ton of tutorials for this type of card and this set is perfect for it. The front of the card will feature the sick mermaid and then when you open it, it’ll feature a healthy mermaid.

I used pink cardstock and used the top two hearts from the bubbles to stamp all over, creating my own patterned paper for the front and inside of the card. For the frame, I used Mama Elephant’s Union Square and Sizzix’s Square Framelits to create the window. I chose Penguin Palace’s Mysterious Galaxy cardstock for this because it has this gorgeous glitter on it. I love how it’s super smooth and not grainy. I was able to die cut using the paper easily. 

For the background of the mermaid, I used three distress oxide ink colors, sprayed it with Hero Art’s Shimmer Spray, and used a paper towel to pick up the splatters creating a watery effect.

I really like how this card came out and I hope you did too!

No Line Coloring – Friendly Bunch

Hi everyone! I’m here to share a card I created using The Stamp Market’s stamp set named, Friendly Bunch.

I met Amy, the owner of The Stamp Market, when I visited her booth at Creativation and she was so sweet. When she spoke about her products, you could tell she was so passionate and genuine. I really was inspired to go home and ink up one of her stamp sets… so I did.

I also met Fleurette, owner at Inkon3, at Creativation and wanted to practice some no-line coloring using her Fadeout Ink.

It took a bit of time to color since this stamp image is pretty large as it takes up most of an A2 panel, but I was really proud of myself once completed. Generally, it’s a very simple card since the floral image makes up for the entire card. The sentiment in the set is also really large, so it took up the empty space on the bottom. To add a little different interest to it, I stamped the smaller portion of the sentiment on black cardstock, and heat embossing using white embossing powder.

I love how this card came together. If you love no-line coloring, you really need to check out this ink… and if you love florals, you really should check out this stamp set. Combined, it makes one gorgeous card.

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!

Birthday Unicorn Shaker

Hi everyone! I’m back to share a card I created using Penguin Palace’s stamp set named, Birthday Unicorn.

I’ve already created some cards using this set because it’s so easy to work with and super versatile. However, I really wanted to do something bright, fun, and pink.

I wanted to create a shaker card for today. I used one of the Stitched Dome STAX Die-namics for my opening because I wanted something different from a circle, square or rectangle. Since I decided to use a pink background, I wanted to break up the color by using a piece of fun patterned paper for the bottom portion of the card. I added the sentiment using Versamark ink and Hero Art’s white embossing powder to a strip of black cardstock.

I added acetate to the die cut opening, placing foam tape around the dome area and around the card panel. Adding bits of glitter and shaker bits, I completed the shaker portion of this card.

I originally used one of the unicorn images but adding it to the card, it looked really empty so I stamped, colored and die cut another one. It really helped fill out the card and I totally love it!

Love Train

Hi there! Today I’m sharing another card using Penguin Palace’s Love Train stamp set. I used the same concept as one of my previous cards (Spinning Bunnies). It has a hidden spinning mechanism.


The only difference with this card compared to my previous card is that I stamped the trains individually around a circle. I wanted variation among the trains.

I kept everything really simple. I used a clouds stencil and some distress inks for the background. For the front portion of the card, I stamped some of the landscape images in grey so it doesn’t distract from the spinning trains.

For the idea behind the concept, check out the corresponding video that explains the mechanism. It’s really simple.

Thanks for stopping by to check out this card. See you next time!
