It’s Never Too Early For a Christmas Card with Anja!

Hello! Today Anja has for us a gorgeous X’mas card featuring the new Sacred Lotus Stencils 360° TM.

Anja used a card panel of size 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and it was die cut using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays. She picked up Barrel 2 and ink blended Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink in the first round by making references to the outlined hearts on the Stencils 360°TM BASE. Then for her second round of inking, she blended Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide ink over the same Barrel 2 by making reference to the solid hearts.

Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°™

This alone, created a beautiful floral overlapping geometric pattern!

She then further applied applied Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Black Ash with a Nuvo Blending Sponge, over Barrel 1. This bold black really created a the perfect contrast!

The Merry X’mas stamp was from the Warmest Wishes stamp set. I love that she stamped it using the same Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide ink for the cohesive look. It was then die cut using a circular die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I love that she die cut another piece using matching cardstock on the scalloped die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts to go beneath the sentiment. This helps accentuates the foral pattern formed using the dark Embellishment Mousse!

The added snowflake embellishments made a fun finishing touch to her card!

Thank you so much Anja! Your card is spectacular!

Celebrating Lunar New Year with Vera!

Hi Crafty Friends! The Lunar New Year is approaching and today Vera is back to share with us her new creation!

Vera used the Home Sweet Home stand alone die and images from the Penguin Agenda for creating this festive card!

Vera used the Home Sweet Home Die on watercolor paper. I love how she die-cut the roof and the door in bright red cardstock which is a perfect fit for this Lunar New Year themed card! She ink-blended the house with Distress Oxide Inks and splatter with Gansai Tambi gold paint.

The cute penguins were stamped on Bristol paper and colored with Copic Markers and cut out with Penguin Agenda – Penguin Perfect Cuts

She also added from her own collection some fun sentiments in Chinese: 新年快樂 – Happy New Year; 恭禧發財 – Congratulations and wishing you prosperity; and 福 – Goodluck!

Penguin Palace wish you a healthy and prosperous year of the Rat!

Thank you Vera fort his gorgeous card! Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

I really adore the background on this card! Ashley used watercolours namely dark purple, light pink and light blue to create this dreamy sky!

She used shimmer paste with the Crystal Snowflakes – Penguin Perfect Pattern – Designer Stencil to create this gorgeous snowy scene.

She stamped the cute train from the Love Train stamp set in black Copic-friendly ink, coloured them in with Copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I love the glitter details she added on the mountain tops. Lastly she stamped out the sentiment “Enjoy you holidays” at the bottom of the card.
