Super Delightful Scenes With Jo and Ashley

Hi guys, hope you had a great weekend. I have on our blog today, from designers Jo and Ashley, cards which features our Fun Night Out stamp set and our new tool Stencils 360°TM.

First we have Jo’s card. I love how she used the Orbit Stencils 360°TM and blended at a turning interval of 45°, to create this fun background which resonates so well with the disco ball image from the Fun Night Out stamp set – super brilliant!

She created this fun scene with these adorable puppies from Fun Night Out. I love the little addition of the microphone from the Penguin Agenda stamp set, looks like these cuties are having a wonderful karaoke night!

You can watch the video below or click HERE to watch it on our YouTube Channel.

Next we have Ashley’s awesome card. Combining the Stencils 360°TM tool along with the Magical Fireworks custom stencils, Ashley blended a number of Distress Oxide colors on black cardstock for this unique look.

I really love the composition of this card. The fireworks background really gives a nice focal point on the DJ kitty!

The sentiment “I Gin-uinely care for you” is a fun touch to this card. Both the top panel and the base were cut using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlay Stand Alone Die which gives these lovely border details.

She added a bunch of the accessory images along with some colorful gems to finish off. I just love the cool vibe of this card!

Thank you so much Jo and Ashley for sharing these delightful cards and videos with us!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!

Happy New Year! A Charming Underwater Scene with Ashley

Hello! Happy New Year everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted here on the PP blog! I miss you all so much! I’ve been busy getting all of the pre-orders on the Stencils 360°™ shipped out, and I’m so happy that I get to share the joy of crafting with this new tool together with you!

Today we have Ashley’s fun card featuring one of our earlier stamp sets, The More We Get Together.

Ashley chose a panel of light blue cardstock cut with the second-largest Dots-Meets-Dashes rectangle stand-alone die set. Combining the Stencils 360°TM and the Waterspout circular stencil, she ink blended light blue ink and white pigment ink in alternating sequence to create this wonderful underwater background!

I just love the tone-on-tone effect and how this pattern mimics the bubbles under water surrounding all these cute images!

She stamped and coloured some images from the The More We Get Together stamp set and arranged them onto the card panel, adhering them with liquid glue or foam squares to give it more dimension. She used the sentiment “You have my seal of approval” which coordinates with the adorable seal image.

She also die cut another panel for her card base using patterned paper with the largest die from Dots-Meets-Dashes rectangle stand-alone die set.

For the finishing touch, she added a few droplets of embellishments to mimic the look of more bubbles!

Thank you Ashley for sharing your awesome creation! It’s so much fun!

Thank you for sticking around with the Penguin Palace blog, wish you all a great start to the year 2021!

A Clean & Elegant Floral Card by Anja!

Hello everybody! Today Anja is back to share a beautiful floral card created using the new Floral Wreath Stencils 360° TM!

Anja first cut a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card panel using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays stand-alone die.

With our new Stencils 360°TM and the new Floral Wreath Stencils 360° TM, she ink blended a combination of Mowed Lawn, Bundled Sage, Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick and Speckled Egg Distress Oxide inks while turning her stencil at an interval of 45°.

This instantly results in a super elegant floral background for her card!

She stamped out a sentiment “May You Be Happy Always” from Words From The Heart (Chapter 2) using two of the same inks she used for her background to give it a cohesive look. This sentiment was die cut using a circular die from Words From The Heart (Chapters 1&2) Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

To give it a little more interest, she further die cut another piece using the hexagon die from Words From The Heart (Chapters 1&2) Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts on a matching color cardstock and adhered that underneath the sentiment.

Wreath building are certainly cool with stamps, but have you tried it with Stencils yet? If not, you are missing out on the fun!

Thanks Anja for your wonderful creation! I just love the feminine and delicate look of this card!

New Videos Are Up On Our YouTube Channel!

Hi everyone! Ashley is back today to share another one of her beautiful creations! This time her card features the new Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°TM.

She first used Barrel 2 on her 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ canvas and started blending with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks. She then further blended an overlay with Barrel 1 using Picked Raspberry. This simple overlay already makes a great contrast!

I love how she used Barrel 3 on a separate 4″ square piece of paper and blended that using Antique Linen. She then fussy cut it and made it another layer for her card!

She stamped the sentiment “I am beyond Grateful” from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set, using the same Picked Raspberry ink to match!

She adhered the fussy cut piece onto her card with foam tape to give it a little dimension! I love the array of gems she added on each of the leaves! You can watch her video HERE for the step-by-step tutorial!

Since the launch of the Stencils 360°TM, we have received many comments asking us whether this tool can be used together with square stencils, aside from the circular stencils that we just launched! And today, I have the answer for you in my new video! Below is a card that I made, using our regular 6″ x 6″ Rain fo Hearts stencil combined with our new Stencils 360°TM!

Instead of using the Guide Ring and rotating a circular stencil for blending, I taped down my square stencil onto my 6″ Paper Positioner and then did some simple masking on my square stencil to get just the right portion I wanted for my card.

Using a 30° turning interval, I blended 3 different colors of Distress Oxide Inks on my canvas.

Then I grabbed the cute kitties from the My BFF stamp set, copic colored and die cut it. I also die-cut a piece using the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes coordinating dies and adhere that underneath my image.

The sentiment “I’m beyond grateful to have a friend like you” was from the Words From the Heart (Chapter 2) stamp set. This black shimmery card base is one of my favourites and it is called the Mysterious Galaxy – Medium Weight Premium Cardstock.

You can watch my YouTube video right HERE! Our new Stencils 360°TM is super versatile, not only you can use our circular line of stencils to create stunning designs in just minutes, you can even use your old stencils on this user-friendly tool! You will be surprised the amazing results that they give you!

We hope you enjoyed today’s inspriations! Thanks for stopping by!

A Colorful Mermaid Just Because Card by Jo!

Hi guys, Happy Friday! Let’s kick off this weekend with Jo’s adorable mermaid card for today!

Jo made a lovely scene using both old and new stamp sets from our shop, including the Let’s Catch Up, Pretty Mermaid Planner and The More We Get Together! Check out her video tutorial over on our YouTube Channel and give it a like!

Jo blended the beautiful ocean using Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks. And she used Walnut Stain for the seabed layering.

The cute mermaid on the treadmill is from the Pretty Mermaid Planner stamp set, while the other two doing yoga and weight lifting are from the Let’s Catch Up stamp set!

I love that she added some sea creatures and ocean related images from The More We Get Together to complete her scene! These cute images easily go together with the mermaids and the overall look is flawless!

The sentiment “Let’s Go Exercising” is also from Let’s Catch Up!

Thanks Jo for this wonderful message! Speaking of, I believe my yoga session is long overdue!
