Holiday Greetings with Stefanie and Candice!

HI everyone! We hope you’ve had a wonderful BFCM! We have two wonderful inspirations to share with you! First we have Stefanie who brought us this gorgeous minimalist X’mas card!

Three stamp sets were used to create this super cool tree: Magical Christmas Sentiments, Fun Doodle Dividers, and the stars are from Minimalist Christmas Trees! I love the black on white which gives this card a very modern look! I also love the black watercolor splatter for the added interest!

The doodle dividers are used so cleverly in this design! I also love how she used kraft cardstock as the notecard which compliments her minimalist design really well!

Next we have Candice’s creation! Her card is inspired by our current Challenge which is happening over on our Challenge Blog! This month’s challenge theme is Holiday Cards!


I adore the watercolor galaxy background with the white paint splatter mimicking the stars!

To create the moon, she used one of the dies from the Mountain Landscape and Scene Builder. She stamped and Copic-colored a few of the images from the Let’s Meet IRL stamp set and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I love the Nellie’s Choice Snow Effect to make the Santa hats look fuzzy! What a cute finishing touch!

Thank you so much Stefanie and Candice for sharing your delightful creations!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Don’t forget to head to our Challenge Blog and upload YOUR holiday card for a chance to win a $25 Gift Card to our shop!

An Out of this World Birthday Card with Karen!

First of all, some wonderful news! We’re having one of the biggest sales the year, our Black Friday Sale is NOW ON at ppstamps.com! So what are you waiting for? Start shopping!

Karen is back today sharing with us to this super cute birthday card!

I love the unique composition of this card! She first cut a piece of Teal Sapphire cardstock with the Slimline Oriental Cover Die, trimmed it down and adhered it to an A2 card base.

She used one of the geometric stencils from the Spatial Concept Trip Stencils 360° to create a focal point for her card. I just love the rainbow colors!

I love how she further cut the design with a circle die for some added interest to the card!

She coloured some adorable images and a sentiment from the Let’s meet IRL stamp set and adhered them to the circular panel.

Then she added a few shimmery gems as a finishing touch.

Thank you so much Karen for sharing this delightful inspiration!

Don’t forget that our Black Friday SALE ends Monday, 29 Nov 2019, so hop to our shop now! Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

A Charming Creation with Guest Designer Yan!

We’re super excited to have Yan Au guest designing for us today! Yan’s card features one of our latest stamp sets, Let’s Meet IRL!

Yan created this gorgeous snowy night scene using watercolor. I am loving the glow from the giant moon, and the beautiful tree silhouettes! This background sets the scene perfectly for these adorable characters!

I love how she used vellum to create an illusion of the cute alien being taking onto the spaceship – how cute! I love the bear astronauts floating in the sky and the pair of aliens waving in the snow!

She white heat embossed the sentiment “U-F-HOHOHO, Take me to the Party” onto strips of black cardstock. This could easily be a non-traditional holiday greeting card!

The water coloring technique on this card is just stunning! Thank you so much Yan for sharing this beautiful piece of art with us!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

November Inspiration Week

November Inspiration Week – Day 4

Hello and welcome to Penguin Palace’s November 2021 Inspiration Week – Day 4! All of our new Fall/Winter 2021 products are available at www.ppstamps.com! If you’re just joining us, don’t forget to head over to our Giveaway Post from Tuesday where you can leave your comments to win!

Today is our showcase of Sending Hugs & Kisses Stencils 360°! This is an 8″ stencil which is designed to work with our Stencils 360° tool. If you are a fan of patterned paper like me, then you’ll for sure fall in love with this stencil! A simple yet fun design like this one can make wonders for cards of so many different occasions!

You can easily apply different colors to the different elements on the stencil, without the need for masking, to form your own patterned paper! If you needed to whip up a quick card but still wanted to make something truly unique for a loved one, why not make your own pattered paper background!

Julie blended her panel in a bright vibrant orange, and inked on the Sending Hugs & Kisses Stencils 360° with a darker ink for a tone-on-tone effect! Then she die cut it using one of the cover dies from the Butterfly Emergence 2 in 1 Layered Dies. On the back of this panel, she used one more layer from Set 1 to build even more dimension to her card.

She also created an elegant butterfly using the butterfly dies from Set 2 in this layered die set. I love how the butterfly is semi-transparent that you can still see the patterned background behind! The matching color gems added the extra sparkle!

Instead of displaying the entire design on her card, Stefanie offset her the pattern towards the top left corner. I love the light beige patterned background which sets the scene for her die-cut heart in the centre.

She white heat embossed a sentiment from Magical Christmas Sentiments onto black cardstock.

I just love this Clean and Simple design!

Here I made a card to show what the entire stencil design looks like. A multi-colored delightful design is created only after a few turns of the stencil. It takes very little time, super easy to do and the best part, it is so much fun!

I used one color on every turn, making sure to use my microfiber cloth to wipe my stencil on every turn to avoid ink contamination.

I then added a big Happy Birthday die-cut and some gems to finish off my card!

Tomorrow is our Inspiration Week Wrap Up and Givaway Winners Reveal! I hope you’ve enjoyed our inspirations! Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a lovely day!
