A Calm Silhouette Scene With Candice!

Hi everyone, hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! There’s still time to join our card challenge #27 – Sea Moodboard. Today Candice is back to share her card inspired by this month’s challenge!

I love her ink blended background with Distress Oxide inks in colors inspired by this month’s palette (Villainous Potion, Seedless Preserves, Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers,Speckled Egg).

She stamped out the balloons from Life Is A Carnival and colored them with a black pigment marker.

From black cardstock, she diecut the two building skylines from the Outdoor Ice Rink Scene Builder set and adhered them to the bottom of her card.

She finished her card with a white heat embossed sentiment from We Are Right for Each Other and using a mix of white colored pencil and gelly roll for the highlights. I love the pop of colors from the scattered sequins!

This month’s challenge runs until July 30th at 11:59 PDT. We’ll select a winner to receive a $25 CAD gift certificate to ppstamps.com from challenge #27 and #28 which will be announced on September 1st at the beginning of challenge #29!

Don’t forget to link up your project over at our Challenge Blog, and if you’re sharing to social media use the hashtag #penguinpalaceprojects! We’d also love for you to share your projects in the challenge album in our Penguin Palace Facebook group!

Thank you so much for your inspiration Candice! Thanks for stopping by!

A Super Fun Interactive Card With Mimi!

Hi friends! Today Mimi is back to share a cool interactive encouragement card with us! Her card features the latest Dream Big stamp set and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

This card is so clever! As you pull on the tab, the panoramic view of the runway changes to the sky, mimicking the airplane taking off!

Mimi first die cut two large frames using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlays. To prepare for the interactive element, she further die cut the them using the pull tab notch die from Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab die.

She stamped and die cut the large cockpit image from Dream Big, while masking the clouds and also trimming them off afterwards.

On one of the large cut panels, she cut an opening to fit the front window of the plane. She adhered the die cut Dream Big image to the panel and glued a piece of acetate behind it.

Then on a separate cardstock, she created a runway and sky scene, using the clouds from the Dream Big image. She then created and attached the pull tab mechanism, and adhered the second frame panel as the backing.

Check out this YouTube Shorts to see this interactive card in action! I hope you enjoy this inspiration!

Thank you so much Mimi! Your card is so awesome!
