Be Original

It's Wednesday, yay!!!!  Lisa here with you sharing another adorable card using this month's Penguins on Parade Stamp Set.  This set has totally won my heart and I can't get enough of it!  After dressing my little guy up as a bee I added the perfect sentiment next to a masked and distressed heart... hope it brings you a smile!

Hi !!! Archana here with a bright and bold card. I have made this card using the freebie stamp set of this month with any 40 dollor purchase. This set is called Unique Peek. Its simply beautiful.
I have stamped and heat embossed the flowers and then colored them using distress inks. For the background I have used Oh Splat stamp set.

Hi everyone.. It's Holly here with a fun Christmas card using the new sets Penguins on Parade and Everyday's a Holiday. I created the Ho Ho Ho with the Gabfest Alpha set. For some added fun I added White Fun Flock to the beard and Santa hat and a little red glitter. The penguins are watercolored with Stabilo pens. 

Hi guys! This is Emily Cupely, and today's card has a lot of shine! From the phrase (Now You See Me) to the piggy bank (Change), I used different elements to make this whole card really shine. Please, watch the video below to see how I created it. :)

Hi there! It's Yuki here sharing this super cute "get whale" card featuring the adorable whale from the "Sea Mates" set.

I started off with a piece of A2-sized white cardstock. I drew a light line with a pencil to help me line up the letter dies for the sentiment. To easily align the letters, I lined them up face down onto the grid lines of my cutting mat. Once I had the letters straight and spaced correctly, I used a strip of painters tape to pick them all up and then taped the letters directly onto the white piece of cardstock slightly below the pencil line. I used the pencil line as my guide for the top cutting plate and partially die cut the sentiment.To make the sentiment pop from the background, I used a dark blue piece of cardstock to create the ocean. I also added a layer of puffy clouds at the top of the card. To give the background some added texture and interest, I used a dotted lace embossing folder. I colored the whale with Copic Markers and fussy-cut him out. To finish the card I added some matching sequins.

I just love how cute and uplifting this card turned out and hope it would make the recipient feel better. I hope you were inspired by today's card and be sure to swing by my blog for a full list of supplies. Thanks again for stopping by!

Hey everyone, it's Michelle here. You guys might know this already since I did a whole series on it, but I love stencils. They are a great way to add interest to a background, or to created your own "patterned paper," but you can also get some cool effects when combined with stamping - which is what I'm going to show you today!

To start off with this technique, you'll want a very basic stencil  I used a star, but think along the lines of circles, squares, hearts... one solid shape! Oh, and you'll want the "positive" part of the stencil, meaning it is the actual shape rather than the shape cut out of something. This is easy enough to get ahold of if you make your own stencils out of clear plastic like I do (check out a tutorial for how to do that with a Silhouette Cameo here)

Then I used the Petal Pushers stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps and tried to stick to stamps that had more solid stamping area. This helps to define the edge of the stencil. Even though this technique is pretty simple, I have some more tips and tricks I share along the way in my video, so go ahead and watch it below! :)

Hi. Lexa here today sharing this superhero thanks card using Happy Hero and Penguins on Parade. The moon on his back is sort of complete his performance. I hope you enjoy today's card.

Hello! Dana here with a card featuring Penguins on Parade! I gave him some ear muffs and then gave him a friend from the Chill Out stamp set!

Hi all!  Angel here with a card using the FREE when you spend $40 set called Unique Peek.  I totally love this flower, can you tell??

Hello, Emily here sharing a flashback card.  On this card, I used several older sets: Seeing Spots, Mrs. Rogers Neighborhood, and Making Holidays Bright.

Happy Monday!!

Hi everyone, Tanja here! Hope everything is fine!? For my card today I used Penguins on Parade and Everyday's A Holiday.Hugs!

Hi Everyone!  Meredith here bringing you a bright and happy creation today using Penguins on ParadeEveryday's A Holiday and True Colors.  I have watercolored my adorable pumpkin penguin using my Kurtake watercolors.  I added my sentiment to the main panel using Hero Arts black dye ink.  I stitched all of my layers.  I have a total 'thing' for banners these days and I love how they add awesome texture and color and they're super easy to make!  I have dies that cut them but often I'll find that I simply hand cut them as it's faster.  I used a variety of papers from a Studio Calico kit and Basic Grey for these banners.  I added some of these super cute faceted gems for another layer of texture and color! 

Hello everyone!  Lisa here with a flash back card today! Woot woot!  I'm sharing a card I've made using the older Black Beard's Loot Stamp set.  I love the fun pirate themed images in this set, and I had a blast coloring in my image as well as adding some dimension with stickles and pearls, check it out...

Hi! N@ Ali here with two cards using the same sketch with a watercolor background. I used Penguins on ParadeBitty Borders and Seek Him for the first one:
