Sale-a-bration time is coming starting August 3rd.  This adorable card was made with the Penguin Playmates 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper that you can earn for free with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-bration.

I cut out some of the characters in the paper and added them to the top layer of the card over an embossed panel using one of the Wintery Embossing Folders then I added some Mint Macaron Velvet Ribbon and finally Opal Rounds to look like snowballs.

You can add Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper (item 158420) to your qualifying order August 3rd- September 30th.

For my sentiment I used Let It Snow stamp from the 
Encircled In Warmth Stamp Set (Item # 156449) in the upcoming July- December 2021 Mini Catalog. This stamp set coordinates with the Encircled In Beauty dies and you can add it to your order starting August 3rd.

Party Puffins Make A Wish Card




I am loving the Party Puffins and Spiral Dye stamps from the Annual Catalog.  I used a color palate of Fresh Freesia, Coastal Cabana.  I love how the tie dye pattern really makes the Puffins pop. 

I stamped my Puffins and masked them to create a cute scene with the birthday cake. I colored in the accents with a mix of In Color Stampin' Write makers and Stampin' Blends. I popped up the scene panel with dimensionals and added my sentiment with the Double Oval punch. 

I hope you like this cute and fun project as much as I do.

Card Measurements:

Coastal Cabana:
3 1/4" x 4 1/2"

Basic White:
3" x 4 1/4" stamped with Puffins stamps
4 1/4" x 5 1/2" stamped with Spiral Dye stamps

Thick Basic White:
5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

Mixed Media Meadow Card






Today's card is a fun artistic project.  This card uses Kelly Acheson's drywall tape technique and the Quite Meadow stamp set to create a fun collage mixed media style background.

I used Water Painters to color through the drywall tape using Balmy Blue and Fresh Freesia ink pads onto a layer of 4" x 5 1/4" Shimmery White Cardstock. Once dry, I stamped the text stamp using Balmy Blue ink  a few times.  I stamped the floral image with Tuxedo Black Ink over both.  I added stamped with the spatter stamp in Fresh Freesia and added spatter dots using a Wink Of Stella pen. I tied the Fresh Freesia Ribbon in a bow around the layer.  I stamped my sentiment in Fresh Freesia Ink on the label die and added In Color Jewels and adhered this with dimensionals.  I matted this layer on a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" Basic Black then added to a 4 1/4" x 11" Fresh Freesia Cardstock base scored at 5 1/2".

The Quiet Meadow Bundle is the featured Bundle of the month. If you purchase this bundle via my website during the month of July I will send you a free gift and a card kit to use with the bundle.
