Happy 40th Birthday Penguin!

Hello Friends,
How are you all doing this fabulous Thursday??? Forgive my lack of posting but, I've been is some lazy crafty days and maybe is has to do with the excitement of my "NEW" shows  that started this week!

My husband's birthday was yesterday and I made this cute card for him.  I must say that when it comes to boy cards, I REALLY have a hard time putting colors together!   I thought I would do grays and whites with a touch of Marina Mist from Stampin' Up!

The adorable Penguin is from Stampin' Up! and the 
stamp is called Zoo Review item #122199 get it HERE.  I added some Crystal Effects to the bottom by the penguins feet to make it look like water or give it that wet look. The card looks better in person and can definitely see the crystal effects, I promise:)

The flag poll was made with some Designer Paper by 
simply rolling it and adhering it with some Tombow.  
The tiny Pom Pom is from my local craft store.

One card with Triple Stamping and 2-Step Stamping

Hello My Crafty Friends,
I hope you are all off to a great new week!! Today, I have a super Lovely card using both the 2-Step and Triple Stamping Technique on todays card.   

You may be wondering what is the "Triple Stamping Technique" well basically it's stamping on three layers of card stock and stamping off each layer like my card below.  

As for the 2-step stamping it's using two images, the bottom stamp is usually a lighter color and the top stamp is a darker inked image on top of the lighter one.  I hope this made sense for you!  If not don't worry I'm working on editing some videos to share sometime soon on these techniques!

The beautiful stamp used for this card is the 
Stippled Blossoms item #126747 and OMG! check 
out the Vintage Fauceted Designer Buttons item#127555 
above with some twine and a rhinestone, isn't it 

I used Island Indigo and Whisper White for this 
card along with Pool Party and Island Indigo 
Classic Ink pads. 
Measurements for the layers
A2 Base Indigo: 4-1/4 X 5-1/2, Layer White: 4 X 5-1/4
2nd Base Indigo: 3-1/4 X 4-1/2  2nd Layer White: 3 X 4-1/4
3rd Base Indigo: 2-1/4 X 3-1/2  3rd Layer White: 2 X 3-1/4
