Fun Card Featuring Let’s Meet IRL by Candice!

Hi Crafty Friends! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! As we gradually head to the new ‘normal’ here in Vancouver, we have today a fun card to share with you!

Candice used the Let’s Meet IRL stamp set to create this adorable card inspired by this month’s sketch challenge!

I love the patterned paper she created by stamping several of the small images from Let’s Meet IRL using Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink onto a black cardstock background.

She used Distress Oxide inks to blend a purple tone galaxy onto her die-cut circular center piece and added the cute pups and wrapped gift from the set which she die-cut with the coordinating dies.

For a contrast to the dark background she added a white sentiment strip to finish off.

Thank you Candice for this charming inspiration!

We love seeing your creations and would love for you to join us in this month’s challenge! All you have to do to enter is use the challenge sketch to create a project that features at least one Penguin Palace product as the focal point. Full challenge rules can be found here.

This month’s challenge runs until April 13th at 11:59 PDT. We’ll select a winner to receive a $25CAD Gift Certificate to ppstamps.com which will be announced on April 15th at the beginning of our next challenge on our Challenge Blog!

Stefanie’s Out of This World Greeting Card!

Hope you all had a great weekend! To start off this week, we have Stefanie’s adorable slimline creation!

This card features the the funny little waving alien from Let’s Meet IRL and it’s coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I love this beautiful blended sky background which was created using Distress Oxides in Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot; while the ground was blended using Pumice Stone and Black Soot.

The little alien is from the Let’s Meet IRL was stamped out 7 times and colored in 7 different colors using a mix of Copics and Ohuhus.

I just love the little rainbow color line up on top of the darker background!

The extra dimension she achieved by stacking 5 layers of die-cut alphabets together really make a difference! I love that the letters were also watercolored in a sparkly white which made them stand out even more!

Thank you Stefanie for this super charming card! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!

An Egyptian Themed Cinematic Shadow Box Card with Guest Designer Yan!

Hello, thanks so much for stopping by! And we’re thrilled to have Yan Au guest designing for us today!

Her card features the Cinematic shadow box stand alone die, which is a the perfect way to create a grand & impactful scene! I love the way she colored these adorable little images from the Mysterious Egypt stamp set!

This shadow box can house four super long tabs that are positioned at different levels, which makes it super easy to lay out all the images! I love how she drew and colored a mega pyramid in the backdrop which adds a special interest to the card!

I also adore the patterned paper that she created on the back panel with the tiny images from the set! She also added a sentiment on the front decorative panel to finish off her card!

Thank you so much Yan, this card is so awesome!

Butterfly Inspirations with Stefanie and Karen!

Hi everyone, hope you’re having a great week! I’m sharing two gorgeous creations from our team this evening and they both happen to have butterflies as the core element of the card!

First we have Stefanie’s card! Her creation is so bright and delightful!

She blended a beautiful background using the Mega Blocks – Penguin Perfect Patterns 6×6 stencil. I love how she used Layer 4 from the Butterfly Emergence 2 in 1 Layered Dies and pair it with vellum to create this dreamy look – so gorgeous!

I also love how this card works for a lot of different occasions; anniversaries, friendships, just because, valentine’s, you name it!

Next we have Karen’s inspiration. Her card also features the butterfly from the Butterfly Emergence 2 in 1 Layered Dies. She picked just one of the dies from Layer 3. I really love how this intricate die alone gives a card an elegant focal point!

For the background, she used the Slimline Oriental Cover Die. This is a slimline cover die, and she cleverly trimmed this off so that it works for her standard size card!

The sentiment is from Magical Christmas Sentiments. She added a few gems to finish it off.

Thank you so much Stefanie and Karen for your wonderful inspirations!

Thank you for stopping by, have a great rest of the week everyone!

A Clean and Simple card with Candice!

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!

Thank you Candice for sharing this beautiful creation! I love a sweet simple one layer card!
