To kick-off things, we would like to showcase the new The More We Get Together stamp set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. This set is one of the collaboration sets created with Laugh and Belly.

This stamp set is ideal for the most unique friendship cards and just because cards! These super cute underwater creatures will make the most adorable scenes! Whether you enjoy making simple cards using just a couple of images from the set, or you’re like me who love creating fuller and bigger scenes with plenty of images, this set will give you endless possibilities!

Now let’s check out some amazing samples from our talented Creative Team!

First we have Ashley’s beautiful creation! I love the alcohol ink background she created to mimic the ocean. She used many of the images from the set to create a vibrant underwater scene! The cute sentiment finished the card off brilliantly!

Next we have Anja’s creation. I love how she had the little fish peeking out from coral reefs! So cute! I love how she stamped out the seaweeds multiple times to decorate her scene. This card is so bright and alive!

Next we have Jo’s card. We’re so excited to welcome Jo to our Creative Team! Jo is super talented and she will have so much more amazing videos to show everyone in the coming weeks! She created a gorgeous shaker card with this set. I love the way she set up her shaker card into three tires, and decorated the panel with the colorful images. It looks super awesome!

Next we have Vera and her set of cards. Vera made 3 cards and each of the cards has got its own special theme.

She stamped out a unique sentiment on each of her card. Each of these correlates to certain images from the set.

This set is so versatile and you can create lots of different scenes with the different elements. Do you see the elegant board details that she added to each of the cards? They were created with our Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays – Stand-Alone Die which we will showcase a bit later in the week.

Next we would like to showcase the new My BFF stamps set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

This 4×6″ stamp set has some of the most lovable critters. It is ideal for friendship and encouragement cards. These cool images can be used to create gorgeous Spring themed scenes, or fun Easter Greeting cards!

Ashley made a friendship card with this set. I love the Distress Oxide ink blended background with Spun Sugar, Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw, Shabby Shutters, Tumbled Glass and Milled Lavender. She added splatters of of rainbow watercolors to match cohesively with the blended background. Who can resist such cute bunnies and kitties? I just love this happy scene.

Anja created an Easter greeting card. She chose the cute bunnies from the set as her main characters. The easter eggs, smiley rainbow, flowers, tree and butterflies are perfect accessories to add to the whole scene.

Next we have Vera’s card. She made a clean friendship card with the two pair of kitties and bunnies. Notice how the leave cluster stamps for the tree can also be used as clouds in the sky? Loving the pastel tone of this card!

Finally we have Davina’s creation. She also made an Easter greeting card. I love the white gel pen details on all of the images. She also used an image of the sun from our Summer Sunshine stamp set and the Cross Stitched and Dots Large Rectangle Overlays – Stand-Alone Die for the cool boarder detailing.

A big Thank-You to our wonderful and talented Creative Team! Head over to their blogs for more details on these cards.

Slimline Summer Scene Card With Anja!

Hi Everyone! Anja is back to day to share a fun slimline summer scene card with us!

She made this gorgeous card using the Summer Sunshine stamp set & coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts, together with the Let’s Catch Up stamp set & coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

All of her images were colored using Spectrum Noir Illustrator and Copics. Love the white gel pen dotted highlights.

I love how she composed her slimline scene in different layers from top to bottom, with the sky, beach, ocean and seabed.

The ink blending on this card is done beautifully. She chose Blueprint Sketch and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks for the ocean; Antique Linen for the beach and and Worn Lipstick for the sky.

I love how she modify the mermaid image from the Let’s Catch Up stamp set (by cutting out the yoga mat) and made it look like a swimming mermaid! How cute!

To finish off, she stamped out the sentiment “SUN-KISSED” with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with white WOW embossing powder.

Thank you Anja for your lovely creation! This scene is incredible!

Thank you for stopping by, have a wonderful 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!

Fun & Cute Interactive Card with Ali!

Hi crafty friends! Today, we’re excited to share with you a fun interactive card created by Ali.

Ali used our Summer Sunshine stamp set and coordinating dies to create this lovely beach and ocean scene where the little girl is swimming in the ocean. The Happy Birthday Sentiment was from our It’s Your Day stamp set.

I love the ink blending she did on the sky using Carved Pumpkin and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks.

I also love how she used a ‘curved’ strip for the slider mechanism instead of a typical straight one, to create a special movement for this card.

Head over to Ali’s blog for more details on how to create this card!

Thank you Ali, your card is adorable and so much fun!
