Hello and welcome back to the Penguin Palace blog!
If you happen to be looking for handmade Christmas Ornament ideas, look no further! Our Guest Designer Allison is sharing some adorable shaker ornaments with us today!
These shaker ornaments are just so cute! Allison used the Dahlia Stencils 360° to create two backgrounds in the traditional Christmas palette, red and green.
She die cut the backgrounds with a circle die and added a circular ornament die cut and a piece of acetate on top to form her shaker. I love the shimmery snowflakes embellishments to compliment the wintry scenes!
These adorable images and sentiment are from Sounding Joy stamp set, and they are the perfect additions to these ornaments!
Thank you so much Allison, your projects are so pretty!
Hi everyone! Christmas is less ONE WEEK away and we have a gorgeous Christmas Greeting Card to share! This card features Mr. and Mrs. Claus from Greetings From Santa and is created by our Guest Designer Yan Au!
This card is truly perfection! I love the bright & cheery color palette Yan chose and her watercoloring technique is just phenomenal!
I love the gold accents, highlights and shadows. The curved snowy background reminds me of a beautiful snow globe!
Thank you so much Yan, your creation is remarkable!
Happy Friday everyone! We are super excited to have Cheryl Luu Guest Designing for us today!
This gorgeous background was created using the Poinsettia Stencils 360°™ together with the Stencils 360°™ tool. By simply ink blending the individual elements on the stencil with different colors (no masking needed), and rotating it at 45 degree intervals, this beautiful poinsettia wreath is complete!
I just love the traditional Christmas color palette, so bright and festive!
The adorable Mr and Mrs Claus and the sentiment are from the Greetings From Santa stamp set. Cheryl did an awesome job coloring this image!
The pop of gold, the contrasting sentiment strip in black and the hearts embellishments tie everything together flawlessly!
Mediterranean style features bold designs emphasizing textures and unique color palettes. With these stencils, you can experiment with earthy tones like terracotta, yellow, turquoise, or metallic in copper and gold. You just might find your new favourite ink color combo while playing with this stylish design!
By changing the turning interval of the stencil, I was able to create two very different designs for my cards.
I used a 45 and 30 degree intervals for the first and second card respectively. I wanted to choose color palettes that would accentuate the Mediterranean vibes.
I then popped these backgrounds onto bright vibrant back panels which complement these color palettes.
I clear heat embossed the sentiment in this card to make it stand out even more from the background.
