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!

A Mini Slimline Egyptian Desert Scene By Stephanie!

Hi guys! We’ve had a long weekend over here and the week seems to be passing by quickly! Today Stephanie is back with an Egyptian themed mini slimline card!

All these cute images are from the Mysterious Egypt stamp set and die cut using its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. This mini slimline panel was cut using the largest rectangle die from Cinematic Shadow Box stand-alone die.

These faux stitch detailed wavy landscapes were created using dies from the Desert Landscape Scene Builder Dies & Stencil set. This Dies & Stencil set also has some other innovative and functional uses, do check out this intro video if you haven’t yet!

I love how Stephanie stamped out a bunch of the images twice to make the scene even fuller and more interesting! I also love all the little details like how the cute mummy is peeking out its coffin!

Thank you so much Stephanie for sharing this fun and charming card!

Thank you for stopping by, have a great evening!

A Mini Slimline Interactive Card With Gladys!

Hello and Happy Friday everyone! Today Gladys is back to share a super adorable Mini-Slimline Interactive card featuring our new stamp set Beautiful Africa and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

Gladys used one of the dies from Cinematic Shadow Box to die cut her panel. I love the gorgeous background which was blended using a combination of Distress Oxide Inks including Blueprint Sketch, Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick and Scattered Straw.

She also took the pull tab die from Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab – Stand-Alone Die to create the pull tab mechanism. I love how she made the cute lion appear from behind the jeep with the pull tab – such a brilliant idea!

The sentiment “It’s time to soak up the sun” from Beautiful Africa is the perfect match for this charming little scene! Thank you so much Gladys for sharing this delightful interactive card!

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration, and thank you for stopping by!

Card Duos Featuring the Hearts Bouquet Stencils 360°

Hello crafty friends! Before we get into today’s cards, I’d like to announce that our very first Penguin Palace Challenge will be happening TOMORROW! We’re launching a brand new Blog in which all of our future Challenges will be hosted. Play along in this challenge for a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate! Stay tuned for more details!

Today I have for you a new video, featuring the new Hearts Bouquet stencil from our latest release!

This stencil is so much fun to play with. You can choose different rotations to create different looks for your cards. For today, I made a card duo using one 7 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ large canvas cut from the Essentials – Smooth Bright White 100lb. Heavy Weight Cardstock.

I used a turning interval of 30° for my design. For my first round of inking, I used Speckled Egg on the irregular shaped cluster of hearts and Tattered Rose on the big outlined heart while jumping from one solid circle to the next. Then I used Blueprint Sketch on my second next round of inking while jumping from one outlined circle to the next.

After completing the artwork, I used the small dotted rectangle from the Cinematic Shadow Box dies, to cut my canvas into 2 cards. The heat embossed sentiments are from Heartfelt Notes. I used Navy Blazer and Vintage Beetle colored cardstock for my backing panels.

I hope you like these inspirations. Hope you’ll try them out for yourself! Don’t forget to tag your projects using #penguinpalaceprojects when uploading them onto social media!

Aloha Hawaii

New Video – Fun Luau Scene With Ashley!

Hello! I hope everyone had a great Easter Weekend! Today, Ashley’s back to share a super fun card with us!

Ashley cut out her card panels using the Dots Meet Dashes Rectangles Overlays, then blended a beautiful background using Wilted Violet, Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey Distress Oxide inks.

She used one of the dies from Mountain Landscape Scene Builder dies and stencil set and cut out the mountain background using dark green cardstock. I love the shading details she added to the mountain tops using the stencil which comes in the set – super easy to do as you can see from her video!

The images from the Aloha Hawaii stamp set were coloured with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. I love that she placed the girls on action wobblers so that they can truly “hula”! So much fun!

To finish off, the punny sentiment from the Aloha Hawaii stamp set was stamped onto purple cardstock and adhered as a banner onto the card.

Don’t miss her video tutorial over on our YouTube Channel!

Thank you so much Ashley for sharing this beautiful card!
