Hello and welcome back! It’s been a HOT MINUTE since I posted on my blog. I’m most definitely still crafting but I’ve been focusing my energy on Instagram and Youtube; however, I do want to post on here every once in a while too!
I’m super excited to be joining the Penguin Palace Design Team! Just in time for their Spring 2021 release!
In today’s card I’m showcasing the new Mysterious Egypt stamp set and coordinating dies!
I started by stamping and coloring the images from the Mysterious Egypt stamp set; I used my Copic markers and added some gold Gelly Roll accents. Then I die-cut each with the coordinating dies.
This card is actually a “mini-slimline” that measures 6 3/8 x 3 5/8 inches; the dotted front panel was cut using one of the rectangle dies from the Cinematic Shadow Box Stand Alone Die.
To build the scene, I started by masking off everything but the bottom third of the front panel so I could blend some simple “sand” with tea dye distress oxide ink. Next, I masked off a hilly slope toward the top third of the card and stamped the pyramid images with brown ink. I mapped out where I wanted my sand dunes and hills to go very lightly with pencil. Then I colored the sand dunes, sky, and pyramids with Copics.
I finished the front panel by gluing down my stamped images and stamping the sentiment in black ink at the top. I adhered the front panel down to a top-folding card base, but before I did, I ran a bronze paint pen around the edges – in real life it adds some nice extra shine that matches the gold on their outfits!
I hope you enjoy this fun card using some of the new Spring Release which is now available for pre-order! In order to celebrate, any purchase of 80CAD+ (~65USD+) will get a free gift! Visit the Penguin Palace blog this week (22 Mar to 27 Mar) for some fun and awesome projects!
Have a lovely Monday!
