Hi guys – this is my second post today. For my Purple Onion Designs video and details about the SALE at Purple Onion Designs, click here or scroll down.
It’s TAWS time again here on my blog: a new card and a new video await you!
I’m featuring a new stamp set by The Alley Way Stamps today, and it’s the fun set “Penguins on Parade”. It’s a basic set with a fun penguin and he has lots of additional stuff so you can turn him into all sort of critters. There are two add-on sets to this stamp set and I’ll be featuring the “Happy Hero” one next week.
As you can see, today’s card is a fun project where I turned the penguin into balloons! Because …why not? 😉
If I would have planned ahead smartly (never do, not the smart part, anyway), I would have masked off his feet so they would not have stamped and then I would have been able to have a nice white border all around him when I fussy cut him, but there it goes – lack of planning = bad.
Nonetheless, I like how this card turned out. I used some patterned paper that I found in my stash to create some contrast against the white panel in the front of the card, then foam mounted the balloon penguins and stamped my sentiment, which is from an older set but seemed to fit perfectly with the cheerful feeling of the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed the video. Let me know what you think and have a great day!
Oh, and of course this one had to be sent off to Addicted to Stamp and More “Make Your Mark”.
