Yay! with Penguin Palace

Hello Friends, thanks for stopping in today. I have a really fun interactive card that I made using two  different stamp sets from Penguin Palace Stamps. When you pull the little tab, the 7’s line up at the bottom for a winning jackpot!

The adorable slot machine is from the Lucky Break stamp set and the fantastic Lucky Break Penguin Cuts die cut the slot machine perfectly, with the little window for the sign and and the little windows for the icons. I wanted a pair of same sized friends for the bottom, so I used some characters from Fun Night Out.

I stamped all of the images with Copic friendly black ink and my stamp platform. Then using colors from the current January Mood Board and my Color Challenge, I Copic colored all of my images in shades of aqua, pink, peach, and violet. I made a cardbase out of matching light aqua cardstock and layered some gold polka dotted paper on top. Then I cut a smaller layer for an image panel and a slightly larger piece of glittery gold cardstock.

I inkblended my top panel with Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink, then splattered with clean water, white ink, and metallic gold ink, before drying it with my heat tool.  I centered the slot machine die on my panel and ran it through my Big Shot Express to cut out the holes for the icons. Then I used clear scotch tape to resecure the piece from behind, and mounted the die cut stamped image on top with liquid glue.

I carefully stamped the icons onto some white paper in 4 rows making sure the bottom row was all 7’s, then colored them added some glitter to the 7’s. I trimmed the paper to 1 1/2x 2 inches and created a pull tab out of a long strip of white paper that I glued to the back of the icon panel. I used a pull tab die from my stash to make the aqua topper, and the rounded scoop on the panel. I carefully lined up my icons in the window and temporarily secured it with a piece of washi tape. I used a 1/4 inch piece of foam tape across the back to provide a stopping point for the strip. Then I framed it along both sides with foam tape as well. I shifted the tab to the extended winning position, and created a stopper on the top as well, forming a pocket. So there is really only about one inch of moveable space inside the card behind the slot machine. I mounted this pocket on top of the glittery gold cardstock, and secured that to the polka dotted paper.

I adhered my celebrating cuties to the front and added a stamped scripty “yay” to the top, along with some bouncing coins. I finished it up by adding a sprinkling of pink sequins for some bling. I really love how this turned out and even got my adult son to play with it a bit haha. I hope you like this card and play around with this idea on your own.

Thank you, Davina
