Hello crafty friends! Before we get into today’s cards, I’d like to announce that our very first Penguin Palace Challenge will be happening TOMORROW! We’re launching a brand new Blog in which all of our future Challenges will be hosted. Play along in this challenge for a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate! Stay tuned for more details!
Today I have for you a new video, featuring the new Hearts Bouquet stencil from our latest release!
This stencil is so much fun to play with. You can choose different rotations to create different looks for your cards. For today, I made a card duo using one 7 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ large canvas cut from the Essentials – Smooth Bright White 100lb. Heavy Weight Cardstock.
I used a turning interval of 30° for my design. For my first round of inking, I used Speckled Egg on the irregular shaped cluster of hearts and Tattered Rose on the big outlined heart while jumping from one solid circle to the next. Then I used Blueprint Sketch on my second next round of inking while jumping from one outlined circle to the next.
After completing the artwork, I used the small dotted rectangle from the Cinematic Shadow Box dies, to cut my canvas into 2 cards. The heat embossed sentiments are from Heartfelt Notes. I used Navy Blazer and Vintage Beetle colored cardstock for my backing panels.
I hope you like these inspirations. Hope you’ll try them out for yourself! Don’t forget to tag your projects using #penguinpalaceprojects when uploading them onto social media!
