Slimline Encouragement Card with Ashley Y.!

Ashley is back to share another beautiful creation of hers. This time she made for us a 9″ x 4″ slimline card using Happy Track & Field (Chapter 1), Happy Track & Field (Chapter 2) stamp sets and their coordinating dies.

She made a super gorgeous background using a combination of Distress Oxide Inks, namely lucky clover, shabby shutters, tumbled glass, and salty ocean.

I love the touch of liquid shimmer she splattered over the background. Her cute images were beautifully coloured using Copic markers. She added foam tape to some of the images to give the card a bit more dimension.

The images from Happy Track & Field (Chapter 1) coordinates so well with the images from the Chapter 2 stamp set. I love this scene where the group of children are cheering on the sideline for the little critters. This card looks so much fun!

She added the sentiment “I’ll always be your cheerleader” from one of the sets, and some multi-coloured gems to finish off her card. I love her choice of colours which matches so well with the colours she used on her images.

Don’t forget to check out her other video tutorials on our YouTube Channel!

Thanks Ashley for your wonderful inspiration. Thank you for stopping by, have a great day!

Fun Interactive Pull-Tab Card with Davina!

Hi Everybody! It’s been a while! Hope all of our Penguin Palace fans are doing well! We’re so glad to announce that we have now officially relocated our shop base to Vancouver, Canada!

Today Davina has a clever interactive pull-tab card to share with us! And I’m sure you’re gonna love it!

This card is super fun because when you pull on the tab, the 7’s line up at the bottom for a winning JACKPOT!

Davina used the cute bear-themed slot machine from the Lucky Break stamp set and the Lucky Break Penguin Perfect Cuts which is perfectly customised for this stamp set.

She also used some adorable characters from the Fun Night Out stamp set. She copic-colored all of her images in shades of aqua, pink, peach, and violet. I love how she has light aqua colour on her card base and the pull tab to match the coloured slot machine. The gold polka dotted paper and the gold cardstock she chose also blend cohesively with the jackpot theme of the card.

She formed the pull-tab mechanism in a way that the 7s line up at the bottom when pulled! So clever! The big scripty word “YAY” and the touch of pink sequins gave the perfect finish to the card.

Please head over to Davina’s blog and see how she put this card together in details!

Thank you so much Davina, this has got to be one of my favourite cards of all time!

Thank you for stopping by, have a great day!

A Fun Slot Machine Card with Ashley Y.!

Hi All! We’d like to remind everyone that we are relocating! We’re in the middle of moving our company to Vancouver, Canada! We will be ready to accept orders from you again at our new location starting on 6 Jan 2020. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused and we look forward to continuing to do business with you all in Vancouver!

Today Ashley has for us a fun and vibrant encouragement card featuring our new release Lucky Break stamp set and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts!

She blended three different shades of yellow of Distress Oxide Inks onto a white card panel. I like how show left a portion of white space to create a focal point in the centre of the card.

Images from the Lucky Break stamp set were stamped out in Copic-friendly black ink, and coloured in with Copic markers. The images were adhered to the card panel with foam squares to give them more dimensions. I love how she made the bear themed slot machine tilted on one side as if it was jumping together in joy with the happy little boy!

Together with the moving coins images she really created a dynamic look for the card!

She finished off the card with the special sentiment “MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR”, and some matching color sequins! Check out her video tutorial on our YouTube channel and give it a LIKE!

Thank you Ashley for this inspiration! I totally love how vibrant and dynamic this card looks!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!

Fall/Winter 2019 New Release & Creativity Chapter – Day 4

Hello and welcome to Penguin Palace’s Fall/Winter 2019 New Release & Creativity Chapter – Day 4!  Our 4 new stamp sets, along with their coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts, and the 4 new Penguin Perfect Patterns – Designer Stencils are now available for sale at www.ppstamps.com! Grab them now before it’s too late!

Today, we are going to focus on another new stamp set and its coordinating dies. Throughout this week we will continue to feature the rest of our Fall/Winter Release with sample projects from our talented Creative Team, so be sure to stay with us!

As promised, there will be more Giveaways! Please continue to read all the way to the bottom for a chance to win some goodies ^.^ !

Today we are showcasing our Lucky Break stamp set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts! This has got to be the very first teddy bear themed slot machine clear stamp out there!! Stamp out your favourite spinning symbols on the wheels and send good-luck vibes to your loved ones with these adorable images! This set is just so much fun!

Now let’s check out some amazing samples from our talented creative team!

First we have Vera and her charming creation. I’ve always loved her cards with the light and dreamy color tone. She chose water color as the medium this time. I really love how it looks.

The bold black sentiments really stand out from the background and the clear sequins add a nice finishing touch to the card!

Next we have Anja! She ink blended Mustard Seed and Pumice Stone Distress Oxide ink over white cardstock. I love the splatter of gold water color over the background!

I love how she added acetate to mimic the glass panels on the machine! I also love the gold heat-embossed letters “JACKPOT!!”.

Next we have Davina with her lovely bold and bright “raspberry lemonade” hued card!

I really love the vivid colours that she chose and the fun scene she’d created! From the blended background, the colourful images, choice of big scripty word, sentiments, the patterned paper, she executed this card to perfection! Love the white heat embossed sentiment that pops on the black cardstock, and all the white gel pen accents!

Next we have our Guest Designer, Megan’s card. Instead of using the slot machine image from the set, she chose the little foxy and the tiger playing in a card game!

I love the layering she has on this card. The different patterns/colors on the cardstock layers compliment nicely with colors she put on the stamped images.

Finally, below is a card I made. I thought why not have 3 slot machines all spilling out lucky coins at the same time! I used the Cross Stitched and Dots Large Rectangle Overlays – Stand-Alone Die on Splendorlux Argento – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock for my card base. On top of that I used The Sandstone Series – Precious Gem – Premium Fine Paper with the Cross Stitched and Dots Small Rectangle Overlays – Stand-Alone Dies. To give even more layering to the card, I die cut some jagged edged and zig/zag shapes from the Fancy Hearts Scalloped Boarders and Dynamite Explosion Boarders Set – Stand-Alone Die.

I chose some vibrant Copic markers on the slot machines to match the Sandstone Series fine papers. I stamped out all the different symbols on the spinning wheels and lined up the same ones across the middle line to mimic a JACKPOT on ALL of the slot machines! 🙂 I finished off the card with a silvery powder heat embossed sentiment “MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR”, and added some extra coins on foam tape to create some more dimension to the card! I hope you like it!

A big Thank-You to our wonderful and talented Creative Team! Head over to their blogs for more details on these cards.
