Today is the showcase of Greetings From Santa & its coordinating dies, A Better Place (Save the Earth) stamp set & coordinating dies, and the Woodland Scene Builder Layered Dies.

Greetings From Santa

Smile! Santa’s coming to town! This 4” x 4” clear stamp set is THE perfect option for everyone on your holiday card list! Let this adorable couple bring your loved ones the warmest holiday wishes!

I ink blended this background using Distress Oxides in Black Soot, Pine Needles and Cracked Pistachio for an aurora palette.

I splattered some white ink for the added visual interest. I used the Fairyland Alphabet Dies on Santa Heavyweight Premium Cardstock to spell out my sentiment Merry X’Mas. My image was Copic colored and adhered to my panel with foam tape. To finished off I added some white gems to compliment the flurry backdrop.

For the second card I went for a totally different vibe. For the background I used some iridescent glitter gel on the Crystal Snowflakes Stencil.

I wanted to create a peaceful monotone so I colored my image in greyscale. I then white heat embossed sentiments on Grand Piano using sentiments from Magical Christmas Sentiments and adhere three of them onto the panel in a playful configuration.

A Better Place (Save the Earth) and Woodland Scene Builder Layered Dies

You can make a difference! Spread the importance of planting a tree by giving a handmade card! This whimsical stamp set is the perfect way to spread this very important message of saving the environment and loving our planet earth! This set coordinates with the Woodland Scene Builder layered die set. This specially designed layered dies also makes THE perfect background for all your adorable woodland creature stamps!

To set the scene I used the 3 dies on different colored cardstocks namely the Grand Piano, Hot Fudge, Apple Green and Christmas Tree. They layered together flawlessly to give wonderful dimension for the card.

For more details, I blended some Distress Oxides and added paint splatters on some of the pieces.

I then Copic colored the image and adhered it on the top. I also stamped out a heart warming sentiment “You Make the World a Better Place” on the inside to complete my card.

I hope you enjoyed today’s showcases and inspirations. Leave a comment below before you go and let me know which is your favorite card! Be sure to come back tomorrow for more Product Previews and Giveaways!

2022 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Welcome and thank you so much for joining us! Penguin Palace is very excited to be one of the Super Sponsors to the annual Coffee Lovers Blog Hop once again!

The hop starts today and runs until 18 Nov. This is a traditional Coffee Lovers Blog Hop in which you will need to link up a newly created project to be eligible to win one of many fabulous prizes, including a $40 Gift Card to the Penguin Palace shop! For all the details, please head over to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog!

Today I have for you a coffee-themed card of course! Below is a YouTube Short to show you how I put together this card!

First I used the Sending Hugs and Kissess Stencils 360° on an A2 size panel with various ink colors for the background. This stencil allows you to make your own colorful patterned paper in just a few minutes!

After completing the background, I die cut my panel using the hearts scalloped border die (from Fancy Hearts Scalloped and Dynamite Borders Stand-Alone Die) to add some beautiful details!

I also die cut a couple of stitched hearts using the hearts die from this set on Hot Fudge Heavyweight Premium Cardstock.

I stamped out some adorable images from There’s No On Like You, Copic colored and die cut them with the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. I thought the sentiment “You Are the Froth to my Cappuccino” is perfect for this card!

I adhered all the elements on my card (popped up some of them using foam tape) and glued the panel onto my card base in Hot Fudge Heavyweight Premium Cardstock. Finally I stamped out the steamy swirl in Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide to finish it off!

I hope you enjoyed my coffee-themed card and thank you so much for stopping by. Head over to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog with a cup of coffee or cocoa in your hand and check out all the amazing sponsors and participants playing along on the hop! Hop will run until the 18th Nov and winners will be announced there!
