Greeting card

Stefanie’s Out of This World Greeting Card!

Hope you all had a great weekend! To start off this week, we have Stefanie’s adorable slimline creation!

This card features the the funny little waving alien from Let’s Meet IRL and it’s coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I love this beautiful blended sky background which was created using Distress Oxides in Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot; while the ground was blended using Pumice Stone and Black Soot.

The little alien is from the Let’s Meet IRL was stamped out 7 times and colored in 7 different colors using a mix of Copics and Ohuhus.

I just love the little rainbow color line up on top of the darker background!

The extra dimension she achieved by stacking 5 layers of die-cut alphabets together really make a difference! I love that the letters were also watercolored in a sparkly white which made them stand out even more!

Thank you Stefanie for this super charming card! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

International Women's Day

4th International Women’s Day Instagram Hop

Hello everyone! Today’s 8th March 2022, and I am super excited to be a part of the 4th International Women’s Day Instagram Hop!

I’m pleased to say that Penguin Palace, among many others are sponsoring this year’s hop. Head over to the Women.Beyoutifully.You IG account to start hopping and discover lots of wonderful inspirations from many talented artists, AND chances to win!

For today’s IG hop, I made this encouragement card which I hope could bring everyone some positive energy! This background was created using Botanical Garden Stencils 360° on our Stencils 360°TM tool, at a turning interval of 60°.

I ink blended a combination of six pastel inks from Catherine Pooler, namely Melon Ice, Mint To Be, It’s a Girl, Bellini, It’s a Boy and Sweet Sixteen. I used one color on each turn of my stencil to create this multi-colored stenciled background without any masking needed!

I Copic colored an adorable image from our yet-to-be released stamp set called Inseparable (a little sneak peek for you!). I used the fade-out no-line coloring ink from InkOn3 to stamp out my image as I thought this would coordinate well with the pastel background.

I clear heat embossed a sentiment “Together We Are Stronger” (another little sneak peek from our soon-to-be released stamp set called Unity and Friendship Quotes!); which I think ties in perfectly with this card’s encouragement theme.

I adhered my panel onto White-Sand Beach – Heavyweight Premium Cardstock which compliments my blended ink colors. Finally I added some gems for a little sparkle. Watch this clip to see the step by step process!

I hope you enjoy this inspiration! And I hope all of us crafters will continue to be kind, positive, and supportive of each other as we take a step forward towards women empowerment!

Thank you for stopping by, and don’t forget to head over to Women Beyoutifully You’s FB page and play along in their linky party for another chance to win!

An Egyptian Themed Cinematic Shadow Box Card with Guest Designer Yan!

Hello, thanks so much for stopping by! And we’re thrilled to have Yan Au guest designing for us today!

Her card features the Cinematic shadow box stand alone die, which is a the perfect way to create a grand & impactful scene! I love the way she colored these adorable little images from the Mysterious Egypt stamp set!

This shadow box can house four super long tabs that are positioned at different levels, which makes it super easy to lay out all the images! I love how she drew and colored a mega pyramid in the backdrop which adds a special interest to the card!

I also adore the patterned paper that she created on the back panel with the tiny images from the set! She also added a sentiment on the front decorative panel to finish off her card!

Thank you so much Yan, this card is so awesome!
