Today we’ll be showcasing two more products from our Spring/Summer 2022 new release, the So Blessed stamp set and the You Are Amazing stand-alone die cut!

First up we have Mimi who created this charming shaker ‘Thank You’ card for us!

I really adore the layout of this card. The heart shape cut-out is just the perfect fit for this Thank you shaker! The soft violet tone gives a very sweet and calm feel which I totally love!

Candice also made a Thank You card for us today. I love how she stamped out the bouquet on both the top and the bottom, creating a focal point for the big scripty Thank You in the center.

The watercoloring on this is so gorgeous! This Thank You stamp is sized just right to be the focal point of any A2 size card. I love the splatter of colors that completes this card perfectly!

Then we have Guest Designer’s Yan’s creation! I love the soft no-line watercolored bouquet on white, combined with the light grey back panel.

The white trimming add just the right amount of detail!

Our next showcase for today is the You Are Amazing stand-alone words die.

Julie‘s first card has a vintage vibe to it, it’s so beautiful! Love all the layering stamped out using the bouquet image from the So Blessed stamp set.

I love that she die cut the words die out of bright white cardstock to match the thick white bold border of the card.

She then went for a more fun design for her second card. The black letters really pop from the colorful background!

The cute mini bears are from the Miniature Teddy Bear stamp set. I love the white gel pen details on these fun quirky fonts, they look amazing!

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s inspirations! Tomorrow is our June Inspiration Week Wrap Up and Winners Reveal! Don’t miss it!

June Inspiration Week – Day 4

Hello and welcome to Penguin Palace’s June Inspiration Week – Day 4! If you’re just joining us, don’t forget to head over to our blog Giveaway Post from Wednesday or to our IG Giveaway Post where you can leave your comments for chances to win a Special Goodie Bag worth over $170CAD/$130USD!

Today we’ll be showcasing one more circular stencil from our latest 360° collection, the Plaid Floral Fun Stencils 360°! The set contains a 6″ stencil and a 4″ stencil.  Use these stencils together or separately. With these, you can create something truly unique by choosing different rotating intervals! There is no right or wrong, just let your creativity takes you to new grounds with this fun floral design.  There are just so many possibilities!

Today we are so honoured to have 3 Guest Designers sharing their inspirations with us. First up is Jessica, I’m sure you’re familiar with her amazing work. I am in love with this soft palette!

The sentiment is from the Unity and Friendship Quotes stamp set. I just love how these pastel colors come together flawlessly on the 6″ stencil! The rotation and overlapping of the stencil design create this gorgeous pattern that is truly one of a kind!

Next up we have Guest Designer Cheryl who created two cards for us today. Instead of using the 6″ stencil, Cheryl used only the small 4″ stencil for her first card.

She rotated the 4″ stencil at 15 degrees to achieve the pattern in the center, and 30 degrees for the rest of the offset patterns in the corners. See how the pattern becomes fuller as the angle of rotation gets smaller? She added the little girl from Rabbit Cafe as the focal point. She then stamped out more accessory images in matching colors to finish off the card. Love this look!

For her second card, she used the 6″ stencil as the background. While rotating her stencil, she also did some intentional masking to create a fun layered look for her design where the five colors are stacked on top of one another.

The cute kitties and sentiment are from the My BFF stamp set. I love the matching colors on the critters and the background!

Our final Guest Designer is Ilda from (I) (L)ove (D)oing (A)ll things crafty! Her first card is a bright rainbow hue shaker!

She used water-based inks that blended out the rainbow with the Plaid Floral Fun Stencils 360°™. For this card, she really took it to the next level! Instead of making reference to one of the scales on the 360° Base, she rotated it freehand to create this perfect rainbow flower with 11 rotations – super creative!

She then used different-sized circle dies to cut out the inner and outer circles and the card base to create this charming shaker card!

For her next card, she offset her canvas prior to commencing inking to blend the flowers in the corners.

To add centers to the flowers she used a couple of the clear stencils from The Mandalas Bundle Stencils 360°™.  I love the added glimmer paste for the extra sparkle!

She used the Thank you sentiment from the So Blessed set to heat emboss on vellum and wrapped it around the bottom half of the card, finishing it with a sub sentiment from the same stamp set.  I really love the soft look created with the vellum!

On both cards, she added some pearls for some extra detailing and pops of color.

Finally we have our Creative Team member Julie’s creation!

She ink blended and rotated the large stencil at a smaller interval to create lots of overlays. She then further blended with the smaller stencil in a darker color in the center. All these overlays make it look so intriguing!

The cute critter family is from the Inseparable stamp set and the sentiment was taken from Unity and Friendship Quotes!

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s inspirations! We have one more day of new inspirations tomorrow, and our Wrap Up and Winners Reveal is next Monday, so stay tuned!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a lovely day!

June Inspiration Week – Day 3

Hello and welcome to Penguin Palace’s June Inspiration Week – Day 3! If you’re just joining us, don’t forget to head over to our blog Giveaway Post from Wednesday or to our IG Giveaway Post where you can leave your comments to win a Special Goodie Bag worth over $170CAD/$130USD!

Today we’ll be showcasing our newest floral circular stencil, the Centerpiece Stencils 360°! This specially designed stencil lets you create a gorgeous multi-color floral card without the need for masking, and without the need to layer multiple stencils!

I’m super excited that we are joined by two amazingly talented Guest Designers today! First we have Jeannie’s trio of cards!

By inking and rotating this stencil at 120deg (2 rotations), she created this beautifully blended floral card! The layout of her first card is darling! I love how the yellow tone cardstock ties in with the floral design.

The black strip of cardstock also gives the perfect contrast to her card. The sentiment is from the So Blessed stamp set.

Her next card is in landscape format.

I just love the dark violet hue card base that really brings out her selection of ink colors!

She then went for a deep lavender hue on her last card in portrait. This card is super elegant!

The sentiment is also from the So Blessed stamp set.

Our next Guest Designer is Allison! For her first card, after completing blending and rotation, she filled in even more florals at random.

I love the added accents using copic markers! Really adds the right amount of details and depths!

Her next card is more of a muted card, she selectively stenciled the flowers around the sentiment.

This panel was cut with the dot-pierced die from the Cinematic Shadow Box set. I love the gold heat embossed sentiment.

Finally, a shout-out to one of our commenters Eliza for requesting more YouTube tutorials! I truly appreciate your feedback! Below is a short reel of this stencil in action! I used a combination of 3 Distress Oxides for blending.

Then I simply white heat embossed my sentiment onto Navy Blazer Cardstock, die cut it and adhered them with foam tape onto my card.

To finish off, I added some shimmery butterfly embellishments for the extra sparkle!

Thank you so much Jeannie and Allison for joining this Inspiration Week and your awesome cards!

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s inspirations! We will continue to have lots of wonderful products and projects to showcase the next few days so don’t forget to visit us again tomorrow!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a lovely day!

June Inspiration Week – Day 2

Hello and welcome to Penguin Palace’s June Inspiration Week – Day 2! If you’re just joining us, don’t forget to head over to our Giveaway Post from yesterday where you can leave your comments to win a Special Goodie Bag worth over $170CAD/$130USD!

Today we’ll be showcasing a new 6” x 6” stencil, The Rose – Close Up! This gorgeous stencil makes it fun and easy to whip up a beautiful card in half the time!

Check out Karen’s charming card below!

I love the light pink/purple hue with a touch of bright yellow color-combo! It’s so refreshing! The “Sending Warm Hugs” sentiment is from the Unity and Friendship Quotes.

Julie went for a more traditional color choice for her rose. The color gradients really give the rose a very realistic look! What an amazing job by Julie!

I love the splashes of paint in a few different colors which makes the card even more interesting! The sentiment is from the new So Blessed stamp set.

Next is my card. I wanted a pastel look on my rose, so I blended Distress Oxides in Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick. The sentiment is also from the new So Blessed stamp set.

I used Cotton Candy and cut out an A2 size back panel. To finish off, I added some clear hearts embellishments of different sizes to give it a more elegant look!

Lastly I wanted to share this card again as I really like how it turned out. Some of you might have seen this during Reveal Week last month.

The sans serif letters are from Modern Deluxe Alphabets and I used the Coordinating Templates to arrange the bold letters.

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s inspirations! We will continue to have lots of wonderful products and projects to showcase this week so don’t forget to visit us again tomorrow!

Candice made a super cool looking card using black as the primary color! She used the Sidewalk Scene Builder – Stand-Alone Die and the Hello There words die to set the scene!

I love how the black contrasts with the light blue sky in the background. The white gel pen details add the perfect touch on these fun letters! I also love how she scattered the bears on top and around the words as if the big “Hello There” is an art sculpture on the sidewalk!

Karen made a simple card with this set. She used the Hello There words die as the focal point.

She kept it simple with lots of white space and added a couple of mini bears to finish her card. I love the neon ink she blended on the words die!

Check out Mimi’s lively and cheerful scene! I love how she used the cute images, including the shops, the table and chairs from Rabbit Café to set the scene!

The sentiments are from the Sweetest Truck. I love how she masked off the bears to put them inside those shops! Look at those cute bears, it’s like a big happy bear party!

Special thanks to our first Guest Designer Yan for joining us in this Inspiration Week!
