Hi there, everyone! Welcome back to my blog. Today I’m back to share a card I made for Penguin Palace that is quick and simple! Sometimes you’re just in a hurry and I have some go-to techniques that look great, but are really quick.
To start out, I ink blended a background with Dried Marigold and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink. These blend so beautiful. It’s still a work out on your arm, but it goes pretty quick! And you can customize what colors you’ll end up with because of the large variety of Distress Oxide colors. I splattered some white paint on the background to give it a little interest, but that too was simple!
Next I took the Hedgehogs In Love stamp set from Penguin Palace and stamped out the two cute hedgehogs you see. I picked them because I thought they looked like a cute little couple. I stamped them with my Copic friendly ink, and colored them in with some very simple Copic color combos. There isn’t much to these little critters, so coloring took no time at all! I made sure to try to match their accessories to the background to make it look more planned out and cohesive. They were die cut and set aside to be attached later.
For the panel they’re sitting on, I trimmed down a piece of white 110 lb cardstock and used a stitched die on the top and bottom to add some nice detail. The addition of this took only minutes, but added such a fun element to the card! Then I stamped the sentiment on the lower left side and adhered the hedgehogs.
The strip was attached to my background, which was attached to a card panel and this card was done! Like I said, quick and simple! I hope you enjoyed the card for today. If you think these hedgehogs are as cute as I do, be sure to check them out in the Penguin Palace shop! Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a great day, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!
