Penguin Playmates

By far, the Penguin Playmates has been my favorite Sale-A-Bration offering this fall. Additionally, It has been so nice to have Sale-A-Bration heading into the fall season this year! But don’t forget that it ends on the last day of September.

I couldn’t resist using the striped pattern paper as the main dsp piece on my card. And the colors of this paper pack all work so nicely together. Just a hint of the paper on the inside layer of my card perked it right up!

This adorable penguin couple is all dressed up for a holiday celebration! I love that the Penguin Place stamp set offers so many little details to personalize the penguins. 🙂 For example, hats, ties, and gifts.

But it looks like our penguin friends need to watch out! That sneaky little fox is getting ready to steal their gifts.
It looks as though this little guy is attending a formal celebration. And aren’t these sentiments clever? Such as, “I like you a lottle. It’s like a little but a lot.” Ha!

Fine Art Floral Suite by Stampin’ Up

The Fine Art Floral Suite by Stampin’ Up is jam-packed with wonderful elements. There are stamps, dies, embossing folders, vinyl sheets, a ribbon, gold leafing, and DSP. And that Designer Series Paper is what I wanted to focus on today.

I love this fun fold layout. It is perfect for when you have so many beautiful papers and you just can’t decide which pattern to choose. That is exactly why I chose this layout for today’s project. This card looks like it took hours to make, but it actually goes together pretty quickly.

The belly band is always a favorite for me! As an alternative, you could put the folded card into one of our acetate boxes and put the band around the box instead of the card base.

Remember, you can get tons of card layout ideas from Stampin’ Up catalogs! I even keep my old ones to look at for inspiration. I hope that you enjoyed learning how to. use the Foam Adhesive Sheets. It is one of those things that you might see in the catalog, yet not understand how to use. I do not use them often. However, they really do make a nice design element.

Each one of these cards is unique and different. The gold leafing makes the already beautiful flower images come to life. And the florals are swoon-worthy! 🙂 Don’t forget to SEND these cards. They will be a big hit with your friends and family.

As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative!
