June Release & Blog Hop

June Release & Blog Hop

Yay! The June Release is now here and so is our June Release Day Blog Hop. If you came from Deborah Anton's blog, you did good. You've reached  the end of the hop. If you didn't,  start at the beginning at Lynn Collins' blog. You'll be happy you did.

The Cat Pack inspired me so much that I decided to do two cards. First I did a simple card using the NEW Big, Little Alphabet Dies and the NEW Penguin Summer Stamp Set. I cut out the word "play" from a big panel of designer paper that I flagged at the bottom. Then, I placed a panel of magenta behind it to really make the word pop.

After I colored the Pogoing Penguin I used the Slider CutUps to create a wobbler for the Penguin. If you want to see how I did it, just check out this video. Then, I finished it off with some Stitched Clouds.

For my second card I made a roller card. The penguin from the NEW Penguin Summer rolls along the wave I cut with the Beaches CutUps. I did a version of a shaker, except I wanted a watery look.

I started with some dark blue styling gel and a plastic envelope. Like a thin version of the ones that our stamps come in.

Then, I added a couple of squirts to the bag and sealed it, leaving some air bubbles. The air bubbles really give the look of water, so don't overfill. HINT: if your get isn't dark enough use permanent markers to color the bag.

After I cut the word "Relax" from the NEW Big, Little Alphabet I made a little pocket for the gel pack to sit in by surrounding it with foam tape.
