Holiday Greetings with Stefanie and Candice!

HI everyone! We hope you’ve had a wonderful BFCM! We have two wonderful inspirations to share with you! First we have Stefanie who brought us this gorgeous minimalist X’mas card!

Three stamp sets were used to create this super cool tree: Magical Christmas Sentiments, Fun Doodle Dividers, and the stars are from Minimalist Christmas Trees! I love the black on white which gives this card a very modern look! I also love the black watercolor splatter for the added interest!

The doodle dividers are used so cleverly in this design! I also love how she used kraft cardstock as the notecard which compliments her minimalist design really well!

Next we have Candice’s creation! Her card is inspired by our current Challenge which is happening over on our Challenge Blog! This month’s challenge theme is Holiday Cards!

I adore the watercolor galaxy background with the white paint splatter mimicking the stars!

To create the moon, she used one of the dies from the Mountain Landscape and Scene Builder. She stamped and Copic-colored a few of the images from the Let’s Meet IRL stamp set and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I love the Nellie’s Choice Snow Effect to make the Santa hats look fuzzy! What a cute finishing touch!

Thank you so much Stefanie and Candice for sharing your delightful creations!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Don’t forget to head to our Challenge Blog and upload YOUR holiday card for a chance to win a $25 Gift Card to our shop!

25 Days of Christmas Tags!

Hello and welcome back to our blog! Today we are super excited to participate in Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event for the very first time! Be sure to visit Tracey’s blog In My Creative Opinion for wonderful Christmas tag inspiration from our Penguin Palace Creative Team!

Today I’ve created for you a pair of X’mas tags with products from our earlier releases.

I first die cut two tags with our Snow White – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock. It’s a bit hard to see from the photos but this unique cardstock has subtle watermarks in shapes of little raindrops.

Then I spread some Gina K Glitz Gel in Red Velvet and Turquoise Sea on the Crystal Snowflakes – Penguin Perfect Patterns 6″ stencil to give each of the tags the shimmery snowflakes.

All of the adorable images are from the Cuddly Sheep’s Season’s Greetings stamp set. These images were stamped in Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink, colored with Copics and die cut using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

Then I added two sentiments from the same stamp set. I stamped “Season’s Greetings” using Simon Hurley’s dye ink Remember Me, and “Happy Holidays” in Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink. I thought these colors went well with the backgrounds.

To complete the tags, I used some matching colors trimming and added some sparkly gems!

I hope you enjoy today’s little project.
