Hello Crafty Friends! It’s release time over at Penguin Palace Stamps, and I have some fun projects to share with you over the next few days. There are also some giveaways, of all 5 stamp sets and stand alone dies, going on over on the Penguin Palace Blog so make sure you head over and get entered.
Today I’m featuring a new stamp set called My BFF. It’s full of great springtime images, like little kitties, some Easter images, a buildable tree, and plenty of Punny sentiments.I created some paper layers using the Cross stitched and dots Layer dies, from patterned paper and Bristol smooth cardstock. I also free hand trimmed a textured cardstock layer to place in between the two. I very gently inked some Tattered Rose and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Ink onto the Bristol paper and splattered with water and white ink.
I stamped my images onto bright white cardstock, then colored with copic markers. After die cutting with the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts, I highlighted my images and adhered them to my panels. Once everything was glued down, I added some glittery sparkle with a Wink of Stella glitter brush pen.
To finish up my card I heat embossed the sentiment onto a black banner strip that I adhered toward the bottom of the scene. I love the details that the stitched dies give my layers, and how the little tree reminds me of a Bonsai tree.
Thank you for dropping by and make sure you head over to the Penguin Palace Blog for details on the giveaway and how you can save 10% during the pre release sale.
