Hi everyone! Welcome back to Creatively Cass 🙂 I’m back today to share a card I made for Penguin Palace using their cute new release. The big day was yesterday and everything was available for sale! Did you pick anything up!? There are a lot of cute products, so I wouldn’t blame you if you did!
I’ve still got the alcohol ink bug, and I wanted to create another alcohol ink background for this scene using the Piggy Post stamp set. I started out by creating that background on some yupo paper. The awesome thing about using alcohol inks and the yupo paper is that you can keep working on it until you really like the outcome. I kept adding different shades of blue and the alcohol ink solution until I liked the mix I got. Once that was completely dry I used a powder tool and stamped the stars from the set with VersaMark ink. I just replaced my VersaMark ink pad and it’s so nice and juicy! I can’t believe I waited that long to get a new one. It makes a huge difference for getting a good stamp the first time. I used gold embossing powder over the stars to make it look like the pig was floating up into a night sky.
Next I stamped out the pig and a bunch of balloons. I colored those in k with my Copic markers, sticking to the blue theme. Everything was cut out with the Piggy Post coordinating dies. I attached a gold thread to each balloon and then arranged them how I wanted them on the card panel which was die cut with a stitched rectangle. Twisting the ends of the strings, I made sure to hide them behind where the pig would be hanging. He too was adhered to the card panel, but I popped him up with foam tape.
Finally, I stamped out my sentiment on some black cardstock and heat embossed it as well. I used foam tape to adhere it over my balloons. I added some white gel pen accents and then my card was complete! I hope you enjoyed the card for today! If you like any of the products I used be sure to head over to Penguin Palace and check out their awesome new release! Thank you so much for stopping by 🙂 I’ll see you again soon with another card!
