Bonjour with Penguin Palace Stamps

Bonjour! Today I have an Aqua and Butterscotch colored card to share with you that I made using Penguin Palace Stamps. I’m stretching my summertime release to create “Fall Feels” and I really like the Indian Summer vibe this color palette provided.

I have many loose 6 x 6 pieces of patterned paper all stacked up and I thought I might as well use some with bold colors while I can,  before it gets too Christmassy. I chose this lovely plaid piece and fortunately found a piece of matching aqua cardstock in my scrap bin.  I used some cross stitch frame dies to cut the plaid and then some white Bristol smooth. I used my paper trimmer to cut the aqua piece 1/8 inch larger than the white panel so I could have a slight visible layer. Then I inkblended some coordinating Aqua Distress Oxide Inks onto my Bristol Smooth cardstock and blended into white about an inch from the bottom. I splattered my panel with clean water, then opaque white ink, followed by a shimmery yellow ink that almost looks gold in the reflective light, but is more mustard.

I used my Stamp Platform to stamp the cute images from the Fun Adventure set onto bright white Neenah cardstock, before coloring with my Copic markers. I cut out the images with the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts then highlighted with my white gel pen. I laid my scene out across the bottom portion of the panel making sure to layer the mountains just a little under where her head would lay. Then I tucked in the tree, and mounted the trail of puffy clouds across the top. I attached the main images across the bottom and decided a nice large die cut sentiment would be perfect. I glued down a stamped word across the top and surrounded it with lovely honey gold sequins.

I mounted my image panel onto the aqua layer with liquid glue so I could wiggle it straight, then used Scor Tape to attach that to the plaid. Then mounted it all onto my cardbase. This was one of the fastest cards I ever created, but honestly, I just love the bold colors and the wow factor it gives! I hope you like it and that your next card comes together as easily as this one did for me! Thank you for dropping in,
