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!

Here’s the project I made for today:

I thought what better stamp set to use to celebrate National Coffee Day than with Rabbit Café!

First I created this fun geometric background using one of our soon-to-be-released 360° circular stencils to create a focal point on front panel which measures 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″. This stencil is very versatile as it allows you to create different configurations of geometric backgrounds by using different degree of turns on our Stencils 360°™  . Consider this a little sneak peek (stay tuned for more)!

I blended with two gorgeous Catherine Pooler ink colors, Sauna and Green Tea on the stencil. I then added the Avery Elle Clear Shimmer Spray for some extra glow!

Using the coordinating dies to the Rabbit Café stamp set, I die cut a window on my panel so that the little girl with the coffee cup will show through from the inside. I white heat embossed the sentiment “Brew-tiful Day” onto Teal Sapphire cardstock and adhered that onto my card. To make my note card, I used the Sunkissed cardstock (these two are both new colors and are part of our upcoming release), cut out a 4 3/4″ x 9 1/2″ piece and scored at 4 3/4″.

For the inside I adhered a panel measuring 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ onto my note card. Before I stamp the little girl, I made sure to position it precisely behind the cut-out window on the front.

I also added “Stay Sweet” & “Coffee Lover”, and a tiny donut from the My Sweetest Truck stamp set, which I thought coordinates with the Coffee theme perfectly! Finally I added gems to the front for some extra sparkle.

If you are new to us, dont’ forget to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube Channel to get lots of crafty inspirations! We also have our new Fall/Winter release coming up in mid October! Follow this blog to be the first to learn about the latest news and giveaways!

A Charming Summer Palette Inspired Encouragement Card with Candice!

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve last posted on the blog. I have been super busy preparing for our Fall/Winter 2021 New Release and I cannot wait to show you what we have to offer!

The weather over here in Vancouver is getting a little cooler lately, and looks like Fall is just around the corner! But just before autumn, Candice is back to share this fun encouragement card inspired by the summer colour palette of our current Challenge happening over on our Challenge Blog!

Candice used the Hearts Bouquet Stencils 360°™ and created this fun spiral effect by masking off half the hearts and blending in alternating light and dark purple inks.

She stamped and Copic-coloured the cute little bunny and tree from My BFF stamp set, and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.

Lastly, she white heat embossed the sentiment onto a black strip and adhered everything down to the card!

Thank you Candice for sharing this lovely creation!

We always love to see your creations and would love for you to join us in on our Challenges. All you have to do to enter is use the challenge theme (colour palette) to create a project that features at least one Penguin Palace product as the focal point. Full challenge rules can be found here.
