mandala stencils 360

A Beautiful Mandala Design by Candice!

Hope you all are having a wonderful week!

Candice created a fun mandala background using the Mandalas Bundle Stencils 360° and colors inspired by our Challenge #16 summer color palette!

I love how she mixed and match the stencils in the set to create these gorgeous overlays!

She cut the panel down into a square and adhered it to a pink card base. Next, she stamped and die-cut a sentiment from the Inseparable stamp set and adhered it to the center of the mandala.

She also added a few colorful jewel embellishments to finish off the card.

A Colorful Mini Slimline Card With Guest Designer Michelle!

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by! Our Guest Designer Michelle Short is sharing a delightful rainbow hue mini slimline card over at her blog today!

Her card features the We Are Right For Each Other stamp set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

She stamped out some adorable images from this set and Copic Colored them before die cutting them out with the coordinating dies.

She also picked out some words to form this lovely sentiment. I love how these words stamp to fit perfectly onto the puzzle pieces!

For the background, She blended Distress Inks in rainbow hues on to a panel of white cardstock and spritzed water on top for the extra texture.

Once dried, it was adhered to the mini slimline card base with foam tape and then the images added on top with more foam tape.

I love the wide contrasting black border which I think really brings out the rainbow colors!

Thank you so much Michelle, your card is super adorable! We are thrilled to have you Guest Design for us for the past few weeks!

International Women's Day

4th International Women’s Day Instagram Hop

Hello everyone! Today’s 8th March 2022, and I am super excited to be a part of the 4th International Women’s Day Instagram Hop!

I’m pleased to say that Penguin Palace, among many others are sponsoring this year’s hop. Head over to the Women.Beyoutifully.You IG account to start hopping and discover lots of wonderful inspirations from many talented artists, AND chances to win!

For today’s IG hop, I made this encouragement card which I hope could bring everyone some positive energy! This background was created using Botanical Garden Stencils 360° on our Stencils 360°TM tool, at a turning interval of 60°.

I ink blended a combination of six pastel inks from Catherine Pooler, namely Melon Ice, Mint To Be, It’s a Girl, Bellini, It’s a Boy and Sweet Sixteen. I used one color on each turn of my stencil to create this multi-colored stenciled background without any masking needed!

I Copic colored an adorable image from our yet-to-be released stamp set called Inseparable (a little sneak peek for you!). I used the fade-out no-line coloring ink from InkOn3 to stamp out my image as I thought this would coordinate well with the pastel background.

I clear heat embossed a sentiment “Together We Are Stronger” (another little sneak peek from our soon-to-be released stamp set called Unity and Friendship Quotes!); which I think ties in perfectly with this card’s encouragement theme.

I adhered my panel onto White-Sand Beach – Heavyweight Premium Cardstock which compliments my blended ink colors. Finally I added some gems for a little sparkle. Watch this clip to see the step by step process!

I hope you enjoy this inspiration! And I hope all of us crafters will continue to be kind, positive, and supportive of each other as we take a step forward towards women empowerment!

Thank you for stopping by, and don’t forget to head over to Women Beyoutifully You’s FB page and play along in their linky party for another chance to win!

Candice created a beautiful background using the Sending Hugs & Kisses Stencils 360° with dye ink colors inspired by this month’s Penguin Palace Challenge

This Sending Hugs & Kisses Stencils 360° creates gorgeous backgrounds in very little time and it’s a great alternative to patterned paper!

She stamped the hugging kitties image from My BFF onto a heart and colored them using Copic markers.

I love how she die cut two hearts and placed them behind the kitties to create a focal point!

She also white heat embossed the sentiment and added some embellishments to finish off the card.

Hi everyone! Our Fall/Winter 2021 New Release is just around the corner and I cannot wait to show you what we have to offer!

Candice created this gorgeous card inspired by our current Challenge happening over on our Challenge Blog: Clean and Simple!

She created a cute little scene by stamping the sweet little girl, puppy, and cheese from the Enchanting Paris stamp set and covering each with a mask.

Then she stamped the bench so it would appear in the background – love this idea! The she did some really pretty Copic-colouring on these adorable images!

Finally she added the fun sentiment and some gems to finish off the card!
