An Adorable Encouragement Card with Candice!

Hello everyone! Time certainly flies and tomorrow is the Lunar New Year! I’d like to wish everyone a healthy and prosperous year of the Tiger!

I have a very cute card to share today so let’s dive right in!

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.

A Friendship Card Inspiration from Candice

Happy Friday crafty friends! I’d like to remind all that we are having our first ever Penguin Palace Challenge over on our PP Challenge Blog. Enter before 13th May for a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to our store!

Today Candice have for us a beautiful friendship card inspiration. She used the Twist-n-Pop Surprise Stand-Alone die to create this fun interactive card.

She created two mini-scenes on each of the rectangle die cut panels by stamping, masking, some of the adorable critters from the My BFF stamp set. She ink blended the background using Squeezed Lemonade, Kitsch Flamingo, and Milled Lavender Distress Oxide Inks, and then removed the masks to add some copic coloring.

She ink blended the side decorative panels with the same distress oxide inks. These colors match perfectly to this month’s Color Palette Inspiration for our Monthly Challenge!

To finish off, she added two tabs with sentiments from the My BFF stamp set. I love the white highlights she added to the stamped images to make them pop! The coolest thing is that this pop-up card folds flat and fits into a 6 x 6″ envelope for mailing!

Thank you so much for this super delightful inspiration Candice!

Now is your turn, don’t forget to upload your entry on our Challenge Blog and your social media by 13th May and hashtag using #penguinpalaceprojects!

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend!

Using the Waterspout Stencils 360°TM at a turning interval of 45 degrees (spinning from triangle to triangle), Ashley ink blended with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink on a piece of pink patterned paper. I just love the overlapping bubbles effect!

She took some adorable images were from There’s No One Like You stamp set and scatter them on her pink background.

I love how she further decorated the card with some circular pieces of vellum!

New Video – Stencils 360° Two-For-One technique with Ashley!

Happy Monday friends! Today Ashley is back to inspire us with a gorgeous duo of cards featuring the Summer Blossom Stencils 360°TM.

Using the 7 1/2 x 7 1/2″ Paper Positioner as a guide, Ashley centred her 7 1/2 x 9″ white cardstock panel in the center of the Stencils 360°TM tool. She chose a turning interval of 30° for the stencil throughout her ink blending process. This is easily achieved by making references to the ‘circle’ symbols on The Base of the tool.

She used a different colored Distress Oxide ink during each rotation, namely, Tattered Rose, Dried Marigold, Antique Linen, Bundled Sage, Stormy Sky and Dusty Concord, to create this beautiful rainbow hue on the canvas!

By cutting the big panel in half directly down the middle, she made two cards of identical size. She then further cut them using a slimline rectangle die.

On the first card, she used the Never Lose Hope die cut with some sparkly silver cardstock. To finish off, she used some small hearts die-cuts for some extra sparkle!

The sentiment “I’m Beyond Grateful to have a friend like you” on her second card was from Words from the Heart (Chapter 2) stamp set.

Don’t forget to watch her step by step video tutorial over on our YouTube Channel!

We hope you’re inspired by today’s cards, thank you for stopping by. Thank you so much Ashley for your charming creations!

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!
