Om Nom Nom with Penguin Palace

Hello my friends! Hopefully you are doing well and enjoying a beautiful spring morning. Today I am sharing a fun slimline card that I made using many Penguin Palace Stamps products. I think I pulled images from at least 5 sets and their coordinating dies.

I began this fun projects by stamping images from many sets like Rabbit CafeThe Sweetest TruckFun Adventure, and Never Give Up. I didn’t have a specific plan yet, so I die cut all of the images before coloring. It was like a puzzle.

I used my favorite Slimline Series dies from Trinity Stamps to cut several panels. I cut a piece of scrap pink cardstock as my large scalloped base. Then two stitched panels for the scene. One from white Bristol Smooth, and one from a bright lime green for grass. Then I played with the solid white piece and my die cut images, to come up with a plan. Once I had a rough idea, I colored up all of the images using a sherbet hued rainbow of colors.

In my imagination, I wanted a food truck and food stall like at a fairground or event. So I turned the Rabbit Cafe into a sushi stall, and my Ice cream truck into a Coffee Truck. The soy sauce was supposed to be like one of those large inflatable wiggly things that are outside of shops and at fair grounds. Dancing around attracting people. So I created a tilt slider for it to wiggle back and forth.

I masked the ice cream images on the truck and replaced them with coffee and matcha tea images. There were some tiny coffee themed words from There’s No One Like You, that fit onto the truck, and I put a little cappuccino from Rabbit Cafe that I put on top, after removing the Air conditioner.
Once my images were all colored up and put together, I inked the sky area on the white paper and trimmed the green cardstock for a grass layer. I also inked the edges for some depth, and splattered with diluted white ink and glittery perfect pearls. 

I created my top Sushi area and my lower sentiment area, before placing all of the center images, so they would be spaced well. Then I mounted the panel onto the pink scalloped paper with foam tape. Once I adhered this to my cardbase I realized that my swaying Soy Sauce just looks like a giant soy sauce, but hey, it happens haha.

I really love how all of these images work together and enjoyed creating this huge scene. I hope you like it and make the time to create something a little “extra” this weekend.
