Hello everyone, today is the wrap up dat of Penguin Palace’s reveal and Inspiration Chapter. I have two cards to share with you this morning featuring the 2 brand new stand alone dies.
The first card features the new priced rectangle frames called Dots meet Dashes. There are two sets of these layers dies, a large and a small. Used together you can create layers in 1/4 inch increments, alone you will achieve 1/2 inch layers like the card I’m sharing today. I cut layers from some bold patterned paper to create this under water scene, which features images from the new stamp set The More We Get Together.
I created some die cut “bubbles” to make mini scenes, and mounted those rising from the bottom. I added a mini layer with textured cardstock below my first layer for a little visual dimension and I inked it a bright citrus green.
The second card I created uses the new background die called Classic Diamonds . This die cuts a fantastic diamond patterned and an A2 sized panel all at the same time. It very much reminds me of the beautiful and colorful Mexican Papel Picado banners than many of you would be familiar with, if you think of the gorgeous colorful pierced paper banners strung around fiesta themes. It is a style of Mexican Folk Art and I tried to recreate the feeling with an inkblending technique.
I created a faux rainbow with a textured white background peeking through. And added the adorable children from the Sweetest Truck set. I finished it off with a sentiment from My BFF and a few sequins.
