Penguin Palace: Rabbit Cafe

I have another fun card to share with you using products from the Penguin Palace June release. My card features the new Rabbit Cafe Stamp and Die Set

How sweet are these bunnies and the girl enjoying her toasty beverage? I wanted to create a scene from the outside of a quaint cafe with outdoor seating. You know the ones where people go for the atmosphere as much as the delicious coffee. 

As promised, the cute pup from Fun Adventure is making a cameo appearance on this card. I love that the stamp sets from Penguin Palace can be used together to create even more scene building possibilities! 

I truly appreciate you stopping by my blog today and hope that you have found some inspiration here.  Please be sure to visit the Penguin Palace shop to see the full collection of amazing products that they have. I will see you soon!

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Stitched Cupcake

Hello! The Lawn Fawn Design Team is showcasing the new Stitched Cupcake Die Set today. I created a card that combines some older products with it to for an almost completely die cut card.

The Stitched Cupcake has several accessory dies included that allow you to decorate your cupcake as you wish. Also, the I Scream, You Scream Die Set works perfectly with the Stitched Cupcake for even more options.

For my card, I wanted to showcase a chocolate cupcake with strawberry icing and more strawberries for decoration. To draw attention to the cupcake, I die cut a square from the front panel and framed the opening using the Stitched Scalloped Square Frame Die Set. I back the opening using Julia patterned paper with vellum layered over the top to mute the pattern ever so slightly. 

For the sentiment, I used the newly released Hello Border Die. I stamp and heat embossed a sentiment from the Sweet Friends Stamp Set onto a banner that I die cut from Peacock Cardstock. I love the look that the Quilted Backdrop adds to the card. 

I have thoroughly enjoyed spending this time with you and hope that you have enjoyed your visit as well! Please be sure to visit Lawn Fawn's blog as well and leave a comment there. Winners will be drawn and announced tomorrow. Good luck!

Penguin Palace: Fun Adventure

Hello! I am back again today with more cuteness to share from Penguin Palace. The new Fun Adventure Stamp and Die Set is just that...FUN! When I saw this set, I immediately wanted to use it with the Peekaboo Backdrop Die Set from Lawn Fawn. This is a fabulous die to create smaller scenes while maintaining a general theme.

I absolutely love the pup with the camera image! (You will be seeing him make a guest appearance on a card that I will be sharing next week.) This set is perfect for anyone who loves to travel or knows someone that loves to travel.

See how cute the pup is?! I mean come on!

Thank you for visiting my blog today! I will be back next week with my third card to share featuring Penguin Palace products. Please be sure to stop back by then!

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Shadow Box Rainbow Add-On

I am so excited about the card that I have to share with you today! I had an idea for making the Shadow Box Card even more fun and interactive. When it worked, I was ecstatic! I think you'll see more of these from me in the future. 

Today, we are showcasing the new Shadow Box Rainbow Add-On Die Set. As I have said before, I love that Lawn Fawn continues to expand on existing products! It makes their product line even more versatile and fun to use. Lawn Fawn, YOU ROCK!

I love how so many stamp sets within the Lawn Fawn family work so well together! The critters from Butterfly Kisses Stamp Set is very reminiscent of those from the previously released Yay, Kites Stamp Set. I wanted to have the cute animals enjoying a sunny day while flying kites. Since the shadow box wouldn't fit the kites and the critters, I had an idea.

Why not make a pull tab panel slide up from the rear of the card? So, that is what I created. I partially die cut the pull tab die from the Magic Picture Changer Die Set and decorated it will the kites and some clouds to extend the scene upwards.

Below you will find pics showing how the card folds to allow it to fit into a standard A2 sized envelope. The pull tab still allows for this card to fit. I decorated that side of the Shadow Box Card with more critters enjoying the wonderful weather.

Thank you for stopping by! We are almost to the end of this Inspiration Week. I will be back tomorrow with one more card to share featuring newly released products with you. Have a wonderful day!

Penguin Palace: Summer Sunshine

Welcome back! I am so excited to announce that I am guest designing for Penguin Palace for their June release! This release is packed with tons of cuteness, so let's get started.

I have a fun card to share with you today using the new Summer Sunshine Stamp and Die Sets. I created an extended shadow box card inspired by two of my favorite designers, Nichol Sphor and Yainea Nunez. This design allows you to use even more images, as well as, make the shadow box element a fun surprise for the recipient when they open the card. 

For the front of my card, I created a beach themed scene. I stamped the sweet little girl eating watermelon and colored her two different ways. This way, they're having a watermelon break together.

As you open the card, you can see in the front of the shadow box. I carried the beach theme on to the inside of the card with more adorable images from the Summer Fun Stamp Set and kept the colors similar for a more cohesive look. 

Below is another angle of the inside of the card. I just love these adorable little kitties, especially the one enjoying ice cream.

I will be back tomorrow to share a card with you featuring another new stamp set from Penguin Palace. See you then!

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: A Little Sparkle and Seahorsin' Around

Hello again! If you're new here, welcome! We are in the middle of an amazing Inspiration Week with Lawn Fawn. I have two cards to share with you today using newly released products from the 2019 Summer Release, so let's get started!

I absolutely love the Magic Picture Changer Die Set! I cannot say enough good things about it. It is so much fun to use and allows you to just wow your card recipients! I hope that you all don't tire of seeing it here because I seriously use it all of the time.

My first card features a stamp and die sets that were originally offered as a gift with purchase on Black Friday in 2018. Well, Lawn Fawn has now made them available as part of the 2019 Summer Release. I know! So exciting! 

In my mind, fairies and unicorns kind of go hand in hand. The A Little Sparkle Stamp set includes two small fairies. I thought that it would be fun to add additional fairies from the previously released Fairy Friends Stamp Set.

When you pull the pull tab located at the top of the card, the scene within the window changes to a sentiment and another adorable little fairy. 

For my second card, I again used the Magic Picture Changer Die Set and combined several stamp sets. It features the adorable little seahorses from the new Seahorsin' Around Stamp and Die Set. The stamp sets that I used for this card include Keep On Swimming, Manatee-rific, Mermaid For You, and You Are Sublime.

When you pull the tab at the top of the card, the seahorses slide together to kiss. How sweet! This card design will not fit in a standard envelope because of the pull tab extending off of the top of the front panel. Personally, I don't mind this since I tend to mail thicker and/or more detailed cards in mailers to provide added protection. An advantage of orienting the Magic Picture Changer this way is that since the pull tab hangs off of the top of the card, it is not necessary to use foam tape behind the Magic Picture Changer panel. Just another way of doing things and totally subject to personal preference. 

I hope that you are having fun seeing all of the inspiration from the design team! We work really hard to create amazing projects and samples for you to enjoy. I truly appreciate you stopping by my blog today and hope that you found some inspiration. Please be sure to visit Lawn Fawn's blog and leave a comment there to be entered for a chance to win some amazing prizes this week. Have a great day and I will be back tomorrow.

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week: Reveal Wheel Friends & Family Sentiments/Reveal Wheel Arc Frame Add-On/Reveal Wheel Templates

Hello again! Lawn Fawn is highlighting the new Reveal Wheel Friends & Family Sentiment Stamp Set, the Reveal Wheel Arc Frame Add-On Die Set, and some more Reveal Wheel Templates to make creating your Reveal Wheel cards even more fun, and easy peasy!

I have a fun Reveal Wheel card to share with you today using these new products. I love mixing and matching newly released and previously released products to create scenes. I wanted to create a science lab using Science of Love Stamp and Die Sets with the adorable glasses from the Dad + Me and So Owlsome Stamp Sets on the kiddos from the Screen Time Stamp and Die Sets. (The ones with the nose make me smile every time!)

This card would be perfect for that special someone in your life or for a friend. I love the sentiments from the Reveal Wheel Friends & Family Sentiment set so much! (Especially the "partner in crime" and the "shoulder to lean on" sentiments.)

The Reveal Wheel card design gives your recipient a fun and interactive way to become involved in the cards that they receive. I love that! The new Reveal Wheel Arc Frame Add-On adds the finishing touch to one of the original Reveal Wheel windows and coordinates so well with the stitching details incorporated into so many of Lawn Fawn's dies.

Thank you for visiting today and I will be back tomorrow with another card to share. Don't forget to visit Lawn Fawn's blog and leave a comment for more chances to win all week. Have a great day!
