Day or Night / Penguin Love

It's Monday already?! I can't believe that it has been so long since I've posted on my blog! For once it isn't due to lack of mojo, just lack of blogging time. Between working and family, I've managed to fit in some time to get crafty too :)

Here is one project that I did for this week's TSG challenge which is to make a card for one of life's milestones. When I first heard what the challenge was I started to panic but when I actually started thinking about different ideas- I had a hard time actually choosing which I wanted to do lol! I decided to go with a 'new home' theme which is definitely a milestone in anyone's life.

I knew that I wanted to create a scene with my stamps (surprised?) so I went through my collection looking for the perfect tree when I came across Penguin Love. How perfect do those trees look with the Day Or Night set?? I bet you would have never thought of combining these two stamp sets together ;)


Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Poppy Parade
Paper: White, black
Accessories: Dimentionals, Copic multiliner, Prismacolor pencils, OMS

* Cut image panel to desired size, stamp images
* Use Copic pen to draw in grass to complete the yard
* Color images including background
* Mat on black cardstock then again on white
* Stamp sentiment in lower left corner in black, stamp heart in Poppy
* Add dimension to the image by stamping images multiple times on separate piece of cardstock, color, cut out, and adhere together with dimensionals to get the desired look
