Coffee Lover with Penguin Palace stamps

It’s Tuesday and that means I have a Penguin Palace project to sharewith you. Today’s card is a little different from my usual crazy layered style. I wanted to make something using a more clean and simple style. But of course my brain was like “needs more color”! So I decided to use some remnant pieces of my favorite My Minds Eye Patterned Paper because those blush and rose golds are my everything 😍

With fall around the corner I’m wanting to make all the Autumn and a Holiday themed cards. But I love using non conventional sets to create different moods. The Rabbit Cafe is an incredible summery set featuring the cutest characters, but it’s also perfect for customizing into different seasons. Now that I’ve turned it all pink, I know that it will soon be Orange and full of PSL and then Red and Aqua and full of Peppermint Mocha!! Gah, why didn’t I think of this two days ago haha. 

I began this card in the opposite way then I normally do. I usually prepare the background first. But today, I started with the images. I stamped my images using a light brown ink and my stamp platform. I knew I was going to use neutral colors and rose golds but at this time I hadn’t pulled out the navy and rose gold patterned papers yet. Once coloring up my cafe and and the tan bunny, I realized where I was heading and grabbed some navy copics. I used the coordinating Penguin Cuts to cut out my images and also to cut the characters again from fun foam. Then I cut my my paper layers with some stitched layer dies. I really loved this heart paper and felt that the “Coffee Lover” sentiment was perfect for it. I stamped it in navy ink across the bottom half then adhered my images. I love popping my images up on foam, creates so much depth and then images don’t bend or warp in the mail. 

I glued all the layers together with score tape, then mounted on a card base. I decided that the cream card base needed a little more, and lightly inked the edges in Tattered Rose and Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink. I finished it all up with a sprinkling of rose gold sequins. 

Thank you for dropping by,
