Beautiful Floral Thank You Card by Karen

Hi friends! Karen is back to share another gorgeous creation with us!

Her card features the So Blessed stamp set and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts from our Spring/Summer Release.

I love the placement of the flower bouquets in opposite corners which compliments the scripty sentiment in the center perfectly!

I also love the combination of the white heat embossed images and water colors which brings a very elegant feel!

All of the images and sentiments were die cut using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts in which you can find a large die that cuts out all of the sentiments strips at once – is a super time saver! The rounded corners on the sentiment strip also gives it a unique finishing touch.

Thank you so much Karen for your charming inspiration!

Gorgeous Floral Cards with Guest Designer Ilda!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Today we’re super excited to have our talented Guest Designer, Ilda Dias sharing a duo of floral cards with us!

Ilda‘s cards features the Stencils 360° tool and the latest Centerpiece Stencils 360°. She started the inking process on a large canvas. She chose to use a different color on each of the flower cut outs on the stencil.

The final design is achieved in 3 rounds of inking (by rotating the stencil to every 4th circle on the scale, twice). This large canvas allows her to easily create two cards, an A2 size and a 5×5 square card, just by slicing it down near the middle!

This one below is the A2 size card. I just love the rainbow hue that she blended.

Below is the 5×5” square card. I love how the beautiful colors contrasting against the crisp black trims and sentiments!


All the sentiments are created using the So Blessed – stamp set and penguin perfect cuts.

Thank you so much Ilda for Guest Designing for us today! These cards are absolutely gorgeous!

Hearts Bouquet Stencils 360°

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.

A Quick & Simple Valentine’s Day Themed Thank You Card with Jo!

Hello! We have a new video up on our YouTube Channel. Jo is sharing a simple yet adorable Valentine’s Day themed Thank You card using some of our older products.

First she used the largest die cut from our Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlay to cut out an A2 size card.

I love the color palette on this card which I think really matches the mermaid and Valentine’s Day theme. She blended Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Inks onto the Rain of Hearts stencil.

She used the cute mermaid from the Get Well Soon stamp set. I love the way she colored the mermaid’s hair, so pretty! The scripty sentiment Heartfelt Thanks is from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set. She stamped it onto a pre-cut heart using the heart-shaped die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes – Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. This die set is super versatile as you can use it for all types of cards.

Finally she added some matching colors heart stickers to complete her card! Thank you Jo, this card is super adorable! Check out how she put this card together over on our YouTube channel!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Stylish Floral Card with Ashley!

Hi friends, we’re back today with Ashley’s gorgeous card.

I just love the overlays on this card! Ashley used the Summer Blossom stencil on a piece of white cardstock.

With the Stencils 360°TM tool, she blended Distress Oxide inks on the Summer Blossom Stencil using Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistachio, and Squeezed Lemonade, at a rotation angle of 22.5 degrees. Sounds difficult? Not all all, just jump from one Heart symbol to another, and it’s super easy to do and takes very little time!

The “Thank You” sentiment from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set was stamped directly in the middle of the panel using Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink. This stamp is designed to fit perfectly in the middle of this Summer Blossom Design!

Her card was cut using the largest Dots-Meets-Dashes rectangle die which gives her this standard A2 size card with the lovely border detailing. The color combination on this card is just stunning!

Thank you so much for your beautiful inspiration Ashley!
