Hello, Everyone! Today I am sharing this fun card featuring products from Penguin Palace

Dreaming of Sunshine

It is snowing AGAIN here in Colorado this week, which has me yearning for summer. So, I decided to make a tropical, relaxing scene using these adorable stamps from the Aloha Hawaii and Summer Sunshine stamp sets. I love cat stamps, but sadly, I am highly allergic to them in real life. These cats are living the life, and for some reason, they remind me (in a good way) of my very spoiled, mischievous puppy.

Making the Card
I really wanted to just highlight the cats, so the rest of my card is fairly straightforward. I cut a panel of white card stock using a die from Lawn Fawn. I then colored it with a smooshing technique using distress ink in several colors of blue and beige to represent sand, water and sky.

I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with my Copic Markers. I then cut them out with the matching dies. The sun stamp comes from the new Mysterious Egypt set.

I finished the card with the funny “Chillax” sentiment from Paper Smooches, which is now retired. 

I love how this card takes my mind off of the weather outside and makes me smile. I hope it makes you smile, as well! Thanks so much for joining me today. Be sure to check out all of the fun products in the Penguin Palace online shop..
