Penguin Palace - Card and Tags

Hello friends, since I missed my weekly Penguin Palace post last week, today I'll be sharing a tag set as well as a card. I used the Cuddly Sheep's Season's Greetings stamp set to create an easy set of three tags as well as a simple Christmas card. 

For my first project, I'll share with you my tags. I made some tags for Hello Bluebird a little while ago, I loved the simple design and colours so much I decided to re-create them using these cute sheep images. 

I started off with cutting three tags from watercolour cardstock and three from plain white. I then cut a snowy hill on the plain white tags. I then used Cracked Pistachio and Everygreen Bough Distress Inks on the tags to colour them. I then white heat embossed the 'Merry Christmas' sentiment on the tops of the tags. I adhered the snowy hills to each tag. 

I then stamped and coloured my images in with Copic Markers. I used coordinating dies to cut them out and then adhered them onto each of my tags. Lastly I threaded through some twine on the tops of the tags and tied a bow using jute twine. 

That finished up my first project, now for the card. I used the same set as the tags and create a simple string lights card. 

I started off with drawing some strings onto a piece of white cardstock. I then stamped the baubles and accessories onto each of the strings. I used Copic Markers to colour them in and then cut them out using scissors. 

Tip: you could easily draw the strings, cut them out with scissors and die cut each of the baubles and things separately, but I found this way a little easier, even if my fussy cuts skills are complete garbage, haha. 

I added foam tape along the backs and adhered them down onto a blue card base. I curved my sentiment onto an acrylic block and stamped it down into place with black ink. To give a little interest and texture to my card I tied a hemp bow onto one of the string lights. 

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my projects today. 

See you soon.
