Super Delightful Scenes With Jo and Ashley

Hi guys, hope you had a great weekend. I have on our blog today, from designers Jo and Ashley, cards which features our Fun Night Out stamp set and our new tool Stencils 360°TM.

First we have Jo’s card. I love how she used the Orbit Stencils 360°TM and blended at a turning interval of 45°, to create this fun background which resonates so well with the disco ball image from the Fun Night Out stamp set – super brilliant!

She created this fun scene with these adorable puppies from Fun Night Out. I love the little addition of the microphone from the Penguin Agenda stamp set, looks like these cuties are having a wonderful karaoke night!

Next we have Ashley’s awesome card. Combining the Stencils 360°TM tool along with the Magical Fireworks custom stencils, Ashley blended a number of Distress Oxide colors on black cardstock for this unique look.

I really love the composition of this card. The fireworks background really gives a nice focal point on the DJ kitty!

The sentiment “I Gin-uinely care for you” is a fun touch to this card. Both the top panel and the base were cut using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlay Stand Alone Die which gives these lovely border details.

She added a bunch of the accessory images along with some colorful gems to finish off. I just love the cool vibe of this card!

Thank you so much Jo and Ashley for sharing these delightful cards and videos with us!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!

Happy New Year! A Charming Underwater Scene with Ashley

Hello! Happy New Year everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted here on the PP blog! I miss you all so much! I’ve been busy getting all of the pre-orders on the Stencils 360°™ shipped out, and I’m so happy that I get to share the joy of crafting with this new tool together with you!

Today we have Ashley’s fun card featuring one of our earlier stamp sets, The More We Get Together.

Ashley chose a panel of light blue cardstock cut with the second-largest Dots-Meets-Dashes rectangle stand-alone die set. Combining the Stencils 360°TM and the Waterspout circular stencil, she ink blended light blue ink and white pigment ink in alternating sequence to create this wonderful underwater background!

I just love the tone-on-tone effect and how this pattern mimics the bubbles under water surrounding all these cute images!

She stamped and coloured some images from the The More We Get Together stamp set and arranged them onto the card panel, adhering them with liquid glue or foam squares to give it more dimension. She used the sentiment “You have my seal of approval” which coordinates with the adorable seal image.

She also die cut another panel for her card base using patterned paper with the largest die from Dots-Meets-Dashes rectangle stand-alone die set.

For the finishing touch, she added a few droplets of embellishments to mimic the look of more bubbles!

Thank you Ashley for sharing your awesome creation! It’s so much fun!

Thank you for sticking around with the Penguin Palace blog, wish you all a great start to the year 2021!

25 Days of Christmas Tags!

Hello and welcome back to our blog! Today we are super excited to participate in Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event for the very first time! Be sure to visit Tracey’s blog In My Creative Opinion for wonderful Christmas tag inspiration from our Penguin Palace Creative Team!

Today I’ve created for you a pair of X’mas tags with products from our earlier releases.

I first die cut two tags with our Snow White – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock. It’s a bit hard to see from the photos but this unique cardstock has subtle watermarks in shapes of little raindrops.

Then I spread some Gina K Glitz Gel in Red Velvet and Turquoise Sea on the Crystal Snowflakes – Penguin Perfect Patterns 6″ stencil to give each of the tags the shimmery snowflakes.

All of the adorable images are from the Cuddly Sheep’s Season’s Greetings stamp set. These images were stamped in Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink, colored with Copics and die cut using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

Then I added two sentiments from the same stamp set. I stamped “Season’s Greetings” using Simon Hurley’s dye ink Remember Me, and “Happy Holidays” in Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink. I thought these colors went well with the backgrounds.

To complete the tags, I used some matching colors trimming and added some sparkly gems!

I hope you enjoy today’s little project.

Don’t forget to visit Tracey’s blog today for lots more beautiful tag inspiration! Thank you so much Tracey for another fun 25 Days of Christmas Tags event!

One Large Canvas • Two Amazing Cards – with Ashley!

Hi crafty friends, happy Monday! Today we have Ashley with us sharing a pair of cards she created using the Stencils 360°TM and the Sacred Lotus Stencils.

Ashley chose the largest size Paper Positioner and used a 7 1/2″ piece of white cardstock as her canvas. To begin, she blended alternating colours of Distress Oxide inks in Speckled Egg, and Chipped Sapphire on just one of the stencil (Barrel 2) from the Sacred Lotus Stencil set, jumping from one heart symbol to another (ie. turning her stencil at 22.5° at each rotation); while leaving one out of every four rotations blank to later position her heat embossed petals.

After she’s done all her ink blending, she used Versamark ink and added silver embossing powder on the remaining petals. I just love the shimmery look with the heat embossing!

She cut the entire canvas in two halves and used the second largest rectangle die from the Dots Meets Dashes rectangle stand-alone die cuts to cut a matching panel out of each half. These panels each measures 3 3/4″ x 5″.

These beautiful scripty sentiments were from the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set.

I love the silver foil card bases as they go really well with the heat embossed petals.

She finally added a scatter of gems to each card for some extra glitter!

Don’t forget to check out her video tutorial below or over on our YouTube Channel!

Thank you so much Ashley! These cards are so amazing!

It’s Never Too Early for X’mas Greeting Cards!

Hi friends! Want some inspirational ideas for a Christmas card? Today we have a fantastic card created by Bobbi featuring the Crystal Snowflakes – Penguin Perfect Patterns.

These beautiful snowflakes were created using Frostbite Glacier Paste by Nuvo on the Crystal Snowflake Stencil. I love how Bobbi added a more subtle layer of stenciled snowflakes in grey for the color contrast.

The sentiment Merry X’mas was stamped in a Memento Teal Zeal ink and die cut it with its coordinating die.

I love how she added a layer of vellum using the scalloped circular die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt notes die set to give it a softer look.

She then added a metallic silver string to make the sentiment look like a hanging ornament which is perfect since this image was designed three dimensionally as if the sentiment was engraved on a sphere!

For the sparkly touch, she added teal, white and aqua sequins, and teal dots using Glass Effects Gel in a teal color. 

Mass producing X’mas cards is sure made super simple with this stencil!

Thank you Bobbi! Your card is so bright and beautiful!
