Candice’s Birthday Card Inspiration!

Hello there! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! Candice is with us today sharing a birthday card with colors that are inspired by this month’s card challange!

I love how Candice used the Fun Doodle Dividers stamp set to create her own background! Always a great alternative to using patterned paper!

She die cut and assembled the I Made You a Cake stand-alone die using cardstock from Prism Packs (Volume I) and (Volume II).

The happy birthday sentiment is from Enchanting Paris. I love the glossy accents on the bottom icing for the extra shine!

We love seeing your creations and would love for you to join us in this month’s challange! All you have to do to enter is use the challenge theme (color palette) to create a project that features at least one Penguin Palace product as the focal point. Full challenge rules can be found here.

New Release 2022

Hello and welcome back to Day 5 of Reveal Week! Time files! Tomorrow will already be our Reveal Wrap Up and this week’s Giveaway Winners announcement! Our new Spring/Summer Release can be Pre-Ordered at www.ppstamps.com! If you missed our Day 1 Reveal & Giveaway, please click HERE! You have until 9pm PST TONIGHT to enter!

Today we are focusing on two new products, first up is the Fancy Gift Bow Stencils 360°!

You’ll be amazed by what these simple patterns can create when spun!  Each of the 8″ stencil alone make beautiful ornaments.  Then add some sparkles using the 6″ design, or overlay the 4″ stencil for a different look!  

Today we have two wonderful Guest Designers sharing their creations with you. First we have Jeannie!

I am in love this rainbow hue card! Jeannie just used one of the 8″ stencil alone on this card, but it already creates this incredible overlay effect with all the different colors! Gorgeous!

I love how she added holographic cardstock strips in a star like pattern for the extra shine!!

The cute penguin and sentiment here are from the Penguin Agenda stamp set!

Next we have Jessica‘s card! She blended Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxides wth one of the 8″ stencil from the set, achieving this dreamy look!

Then for the sparkle, she applied some iridescent glitter gel using the 6″ snowflake design stencil to the center of the blended pattern!

I love the gold heat embossed sentiments against black cardstock. They are from the So Blessed stamp set. The matching color gems finished the card perfectly!

You ASKED. We LISTENED! We are releasing more BIG sentiment dies! Our next showcase is the You Make Me Smile Stand-alone die.

First is Mimi’s card! She die cut this sentiment twice to create more dimension.

I really like the light pink and cyan color combo! Love the white gel pen accents on these bold letters!

The cute images and Ping Me Anytime sentiment are from the Penguin Agenda stamp set!

I’ve also made a card for today’s showcase. I kind of went for a non-traditional color palette this time.

I used the the You Make Me Smile Stand-alone die on Lemon Cake – Heavyweight Premium Cardstock, die cut it multiple times and stack them together to create a bit more dimension. I also die cut it on The Sandstone Series – Princess Decor – Premium Fine Paper for a shadow effect, then adhered everything on some dark brown patterned paper. My card base was also made with Lemon Cake – Heavyweight Premium Cardstock.

I copic colored some adorable bears from Miniature Teddy Bear stamp set and popped them on my card with a bit of foam tape, finished it off with some matching color gems!

There you have our inspirations for today! If you haven’t done so, head over to our Day 1 post and participate in our BLOG + IG GIVEAWAYS! This is your LAST CHANCE! You have until 9:00pm PST tonight to enter!

I truly hope you’ve enjoyed today’s showcase of the Fancy Gift Bow Stencils 360° and the You Make Me Smile Stand-alone die!

Spring/Summer 2022 New Release – Reveal Week – Day 4

Hello and welcome back to Day 4 of Reveal Week! Our new Spring/Summer Release can now be Pre-Ordered at www.ppstamps.com! If you missed our Day 1 Reveal & Giveaway, please click HERE!

Today and tomorrow, we will be showcasing some of our newest circular stencils from the Stencils 360° collection! If you haven’t heard of the Stencils 360° yet, don’t miss out as you will be amazed by what it can do!

Today we are focusing on the new Mandalas Bundle Stencils 360°! This set includes 8 stencils in sizes 4”, 6” and 8” diameter. Even though they are designed to work in pairs, you can definitely mix and match them to create totally different designs!

Just by inking different colors on the separate elements of the stencil and rotating it, you can easily achieve a colorful design without any masking needed AND without having to clean your stencil during the process!

We are thrilled to have two extremely talented Guest Designers creating with our 360° collection for this week’s reveal. One of them is Cheryl who made a trio of cards to share with us today! Her first card was created using both the large and small stencils from Pair D.

I am loving this blue palette! As you can see, the smaller stencil design is a perfect fit to the centre of the large stencil design. However you can definitely switch to another small stencil when pairing it with the large one. It’s fun to explore the different options!

She finished off the card by adding the scripty Thank you sentiment in the center which is from the So Blessed stamp set.

Below is an example on how you can mix the smaller stencils in your design! Cheryl used the large stencil from Pair B with the small stencil from Pair C to create this background. She rotated the large stencil at 30° (jumping from circle to circle) and then completed the center portion using the small stencil from Pair C.

Moreover, by simply changing the turning interval on the larger stencil, she could have achieved a whole new design! And this is a great thing about our Stencils 360° collection, they provide so many possibilities! I find that this background goes so well with this cute dancer and the fire torch images, all from the Aloha Hawaii stamp sets!

I love the black sentiment strip for a nice contrast!

For her final card she used Pair A (both the large and small stencil). I just love this sweet background which sets the scene for this cute mermaid from the Let’s Catch Up stamp set.

Love the coloring on the mermaid’s hair, gorgeous!

We are also very grateful to have Allison who is Guest Designing for us today. Allison made a trio of cards today! I am really impressed by the designs that she achieved by mixing and matching the stencils from the set!

For this first card, she layered all of Pair A and B, together with the large stencil from Pair C. It looks stunning! Her choice of colors go seamlessly together.

For her next card, she combined the large stencils from both Pair A and D, and added the small stencil design from Pair C. I just love how it turned out!

The stitched circle die cut really suits this design!

Below is her third card where she combined Pair A, with the large stencils from both Pairs C and D! Even though there is a lot of layering here, I really think the color palette makes it work!

All of the sentiments on Allison’s cards are from the So Blessed stamp set.

Finally we have Candice’s creation. In contrary to above designs, she demonstrated how the large stencil can be used separately on its own! Here she used just the large stencil from Pair A to create this beautiful design.

I love how she laid out the multiple mandalas on her card using the different color combinations, super pretty! The sentiment is from Unity and Friendship Quotes.

There you have our inspirations for today! If you haven’t done so, head over to our Day 1 post and participate in our BLOG + IG GIVEAWAYS! You have until May 8, 9:00pm PST to enter. We really hope you will play along with us! Winners will be announced on our Blog and on Instagram on May 9.

I truly hope you’ve enjoyed today’s showcase of the Mandalas Bundle Stencils 360°! This stencil set really is super versatile and gives you endless possibilities!!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for showcases on more wonderful products and projects!Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a lovely day!

new release 2022 day 3

Spring/Summer 2022 New Release – Reveal Week – Day 3

Hello and welcome back to Day 3 of Reveal Week! Our new Spring/Summer Release can now be Pre-Ordered at www.ppstamps.com! If you missed our Day 1 Reveal & Giveaway, please click HERE!

Over the next two days, we will be showcasing some of our newest circular stencils from the Stencils 360° collection! So for those who are fans of this innovative tool, stay with us! If you haven’t heard of this tool yet, don’t miss out as you will be amazed by what it can do!

Today we are focusing on a brand new 6″ x 8″ stamp set Modern Deluxe Alphabets, along with its Coordinating Stencil Templates. With the edged guidelines around the little windows on these stencils, you can easily pop in and align the individual stamps from the Modern Deluxe Alphabets to create the coolest letters background! Let me show you what I mean with some samples below!

I made a trio of cards for today. I combined the Modern Deluxe Alphabet stamp set with a different Template for each of my card.

For my first card I taped my A2 size card to the back of Template 2 (lining it up with the edged corner guides on the stencil). Then I put them into my MISTI tool and start positioning my letter stamps. The edged guidelines around the windows can easily help with getting the perfect alignment!

I stamped out the word LOVE using Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear heat embossed them. Then I used Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxides on my stencil template to add some shades behind the letters. I then used the Rain of Hearts stencil gradually blending lighter towards the centre of my card.

Finally I finished it with some gems for the extra sparkles!

For my next card I used this stamp set with Template 1 in which there are twelve square cut-outs.

I knew I wanted black letters against a clean white background for the biggest contrast so I stamped out the letters again with Versafine Onyx Black ink and left the background white. I trimmed off the edges and popped it onto kraft cardstock and added some really cool sparkly star shaped embellishments! And by the way, you will find this cool embellishment on our website along with tons of other gorgeous new ones real soon ^.^!

For my last card, I used Template 3 where there are six square cut-outs.

Since there are only six letters on this card, I wanted a bold background to accompany my THANKU design. I used Catherine Pooler Juniper Mist ink along with Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide on our new The Rose Close-Up stencil. I trimmed the sides and pop my card onto a matching color Vintage Beetle cardstock.

I added some beautiful clear hearts embellishment (coming soon to our shop) to finish off the card. I thought they mimic dew drops with an elegant twist!

There you have my inspirations for today! If you haven’t done so, head over to our Day 1 post and participate in our BLOG + IG GIVEAWAYS! You have until May 8, 9:00pm PST to enter. We really hope you will play along with us! Winners will be announced on our Blog and on Instagram on May 9.

I truly hope you’ve enjoyed today’s showcase of the Modern Deluxe Alphabets along with its Coordinating Templates. These templates are super easy to use and you will have so much fun playing with these sets together!

We will continue to have lots of wonderful products and projects to showcase this week so don’t forget to visit us again tomorrow for our next post! Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a lovely day!
