Slimline Encouragement Card with Ashley Y.!

Ashley is back to share another beautiful creation of hers. This time she made for us a 9″ x 4″ slimline card using Happy Track & Field (Chapter 1), Happy Track & Field (Chapter 2) stamp sets and their coordinating dies.

She made a super gorgeous background using a combination of Distress Oxide Inks, namely lucky clover, shabby shutters, tumbled glass, and salty ocean.

I love the touch of liquid shimmer she splattered over the background. Her cute images were beautifully coloured using Copic markers. She added foam tape to some of the images to give the card a bit more dimension.

The images from Happy Track & Field (Chapter 1) coordinates so well with the images from the Chapter 2 stamp set. I love this scene where the group of children are cheering on the sideline for the little critters. This card looks so much fun!

She added the sentiment “I’ll always be your cheerleader” from one of the sets, and some multi-coloured gems to finish off her card. I love her choice of colours which matches so well with the colours she used on her images.

Thanks Ashley for your wonderful inspiration. Thank you for stopping by, have a great day!

Beautiful Rainbow Hue Friendship Card by Ashley Y.!

Hi Guys! Welcome back to our blog! Today, Ashley’s back to share with us her beautiful rainbow hue friendship card.

The main characters on this card, the two cute cheerleaders with pom-poms are from the Happy Track and Field (Chapter 2) stamp set. Ashley coloured them with Copic markers and die-cut them using the coordinating Happy Track and Field (Chapter 2) Penguin Perfect Cuts.

The way Ashley formed the rainbow on her card is very unique. A strip of felt was adhered to the edge of a ruler, and a variety of rainbow-coloured alcohol pearl inks were dabbed onto the foam. The ruler was held as a handle to drag the foam along a piece of Yupo paper in an arched fashion, creating a rainbow of alcohol pearl ink colours on the paper.

I love how Ashley die-cut a circle of white cardstock and trimmed the bottom of it to align it with the bottom fo the card panel. The black sentiment “I’ll always be your cheerleader” on the white background pops up so nicely.

She finished off her card with some matching colours sequins. Check out Ashley’s video on our YouTube Channel to see how she created this card!

Thank you so much Ashley for your inspiration today! Thanks for stopping by, have a superb day!

Fun Interactive Pull-Tab Card with Davina!

Hi Everybody! It’s been a while! Hope all of our Penguin Palace fans are doing well! We’re so glad to announce that we have now officially relocated our shop base to Vancouver, Canada!

Today Davina has a clever interactive pull-tab card to share with us! And I’m sure you’re gonna love it!

This card is super fun because when you pull on the tab, the 7’s line up at the bottom for a winning JACKPOT!

Davina used the cute bear-themed slot machine from the Lucky Break stamp set and the Lucky Break Penguin Perfect Cuts which is perfectly customised for this stamp set.

She also used some adorable characters from the Fun Night Out stamp set. She copic-colored all of her images in shades of aqua, pink, peach, and violet. I love how she has light aqua colour on her card base and the pull tab to match the coloured slot machine. The gold polka dotted paper and the gold cardstock she chose also blend cohesively with the jackpot theme of the card.

She formed the pull-tab mechanism in a way that the 7s line up at the bottom when pulled! So clever! The big scripty word “YAY” and the touch of pink sequins gave the perfect finish to the card.

Please head over to Davina’s blog and see how she put this card together in details!

Thank you so much Davina, this has got to be one of my favourite cards of all time!

Thank you for stopping by, have a great day!

A Fun Slot Machine Card with Ashley Y.!

Hi All! We’d like to remind everyone that we are relocating! We’re in the middle of moving our company to Vancouver, Canada! We will be ready to accept orders from you again at our new location starting on 6 Jan 2020. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused and we look forward to continuing to do business with you all in Vancouver!

Today Ashley has for us a fun and vibrant encouragement card featuring our new release Lucky Break stamp set and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts!

She blended three different shades of yellow of Distress Oxide Inks onto a white card panel. I like how show left a portion of white space to create a focal point in the centre of the card.

Images from the Lucky Break stamp set were stamped out in Copic-friendly black ink, and coloured in with Copic markers. The images were adhered to the card panel with foam squares to give them more dimensions. I love how she made the bear themed slot machine tilted on one side as if it was jumping together in joy with the happy little boy!

Together with the moving coins images she really created a dynamic look for the card!

She finished off the card with the special sentiment “MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR”, and some matching color sequins! Check out her video tutorial on our YouTube channel and give it a LIKE!

Thank you Ashley for this inspiration! I totally love how vibrant and dynamic this card looks!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!
