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!

A Dreamy Holiday Card with Davina!

Hi there! Today Davina is back to share a dreamy holiday card with us! Looks like a bunch of happy penguins are having a party and the adorable mermaid is here to join in on the fun!

Davina made a slimline card or 6.25 inches using multiple images from our earlier releases, including the Penguin Agenda stamp set & coordinating dies, and the Get Well Soon stamp set & coordinating dies. She also used our new release Crystal Snowflakes Penguin Perfect Pattern – Designer Stencil for this card.

I love her sky background which was inked up using Distress Oxide Ink Pink Spun Sugar and Dusty Concord. The ocean was blended using Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers. The splash of bright white ink added a little more depth to the ocean.

She chose the white embossing paste as the medium with the Crystal Snowflakes Stencil on her blended sky, to create the perfect dreamy snowy scene! The pretty music notes are from the Fun Night Out stamp set, while the pretty mermaid is from the Get Well Soon stamp set.

I love the light pastel colors for all her characters and the whole card comes together so well in this sunset/dusk scene.

Thank you Davina for this fun card! Besides the cute images, I really love the balloons and hats accessories and the happy vibe of this card!

Thank you for stopping by, have a great day!
