Penguin Place Tailor Made Tags

We had our July Stamp Share last night. I've been playing with new items from the July-December Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure that start August 3rd, so I decided to use one of my favorite bundles, Penguin Place, for my swap card. I ended up with three different colors, but all the same layout:




Inside it says "It's like a little except a lot"

Stamp Set: Penguin Place

Accessories: Penguin Builder Punch, Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration)

Sneak Peek: Penguin Place Pinwheel

I decided to try a new fun fold card the other day. It's a Pinwheel card! And when it's flat, it will fit in a regular envelope.


I used the new Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper that is in the Sale-A-Bration brochure:





Stamp Set: Penguin Place

Accessories: Penguin Builder Punch, Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper

The card base is 4 1/4 x 5 3/4", scored at 3/4, 1 1/2, 2 1/4, and 3". Fold on all the score lines, put adhesive on the end section and attach it to the large part to make the center square and one of the sides of the pinwheel. Then cut three pieces that are 2 3/4 x 4 1/4" and attach one to each of the sides of the center square. That makes the pinwheel- then just decorate as desired! I used pieces of DSP that are 2 3/4 x 4 1/4 and 1 1/2 x 4 1/4" (the small sides are actually 2" wide, but I already had some strips cut and wanted to use them).

Sandy's Pampered Pets Sampler

Sandy made me this awesome sampler when I let her borrow my Pampered Pets stamp set and Pets Dies. I really wish the coordinating Designer Series Paper was still available, as that's where these images are cut from- some with the dies and the rest are fussy cut.

Colors: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Basic White, Real Red
The sampler is 12 x 12". I might try it in a black frame- I think it will really make the red pop!
Thanks Sandy! I love it!

Art In Bloom Checks & Dots

And here is my card from the June Stamp Share! I did a demonstration to show how this Hybrid Embossing Folder works at our gathering and thought it made sense to give everyone a card that uses it.


Two different flowers, so two similar versions


I didn't like the way the third flower looked with the leaves, so I cut them in half and put them inside the cards:
