Penguin Palace - Rabbit Cafe - Stay Sweet!

Have you all checked out Penguin Palace? I ADORE THESE STAMPS!!!!

Today, I have 'Rabbit Cafe' for you all and I just loved working with these adorable images.  These stamps also come with coordinating dies.


I always like to experiment with what I currently have in my craft room, if you are like me, there is lots you haven't used or tried.  I thought it would be fun to use Memento Desert Sand to stamp out my images.  It is a very light ink and I stamped the images several times using my MISTI stamping tool.  I colored the images in with my lightest Copic Markers (the ones that end with 0000, 000, 00, 0) and I loved how the images looked (hard to photograph though, LOL).

I experimented with different backgrounds and with these light images, a simple background worked the best.  I used Distress Oxide ink in Spun Sugar and Antique Linen.  These are some of my go to inks.

I hope you enjoyed this card and I hope you check out Penguin Palace.  Amazing stamps, I love the quality, …

Pretty Pink Posh - Product Release Blog Hop - Day 2

Love this jam packed release filled with adorable critters, options for mothers and fathers day cards, graduations...a fabulous A2 sized Lattice die and great NEW stencils!



I used the following new products on my card today:
https://prettypinkposh.com/collections/whats-new/products/elephant-friends-stamp-set
https://prettypinkposh.com/collections/whats-new/products/mothers-day-stamp-set
https://prettypinkposh.com/collections/whats-new/products/wide-stripes-stencil

I wanted to create a different look using the Wide Stripes stencil by placing the stripes at the diagonal.  I created a pink themed stripe look with Distress Oxide ink in Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry.  I cut down my striped panel with the Scallop Borders Dies to make room for my Happy Mother's Day sentiment from the Mothers Day Stamp Set.



I hope you like my card and give these cool stencils a try.  It makes a great pattern paper look that you can customize perfectly with your card design.

There are 4 $25 gift…

Hello Sweetums - Oceans of Encouragement

Rina here with an ocean themed card using the HelloSweetums “Oceans of Encouragement” stamp set.  I am having holiday crafting withdrawals, but I am also excited to start using non holiday color palettes! 
I created a background using Distress Oxide inks in Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon and Tumbled Glass.I added more texture to the background by splattering white paint.I then used copic markers to color in my images.
I had planned to tuck the ocean critters into waves on my background, but I had a hard time covering up these little cuties.Instead, I adhered them directly to the card making sure that the images faced different ways.I stamped out the sentiment on a strip of white paper and cut a fishtail on the end.
I finished off the card using the Inkon3 Liquid Pixie Dust to add shimmer to the images.I also added sequins for added shine.
Hope you try out this card, I absolutely adore the shark image, it is my FAVORITE!
Thanks for stopping by, Rina
