A Magical Creation with Guest Designer Ilda!

Hello friends! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Let’s hop right in to our inspiration for today. We’re super excited to have Ilda Dias guest designing for us!

Her card features the latest Fancy Gift Bow Stencils 360°. She ink blended three different pastel colors on one of the 8” stencil from this set and rotated it at 30deg intervals (jumping from circle to circle) to create this dreamy background! So beautiful!

She then used the 6” stencil and apply iridescent glitter gel over it to create this icy frozen fractal look!

She added a white heat embossed sentiment from So Blessed stamp set that was die cut with its coordinating dies. She also finished her card with some matching iridescent gems!

This card certainly reminds me of the movie Frozen, Christmas and Snowflakes!

Thank you so much for your beautiful inspiration Ilda!

Thanks for stopping by everyone, have a great rest of the week!

It’s Never Too Early for a Holiday Greeting Card!

Hello crafty friends! I hope you’ve enjoyed our Fall/Winter Release full reveal last week! Today we have another remarkable inspiration from Stefanie!

To create this card, she used the Minimalist Christmas Trees and Magical Christmas Sentiments from our new release.

I love that she gold heat embossed all the images and sentiments on black cardstock! What a cool combination and color contrast!

I love the gold splatter in the background with the gold watercolor, super festive!

She finished off her card with some sparkly embellishment. Thank you so much Stefanie for sharing your charming creation!

Starting tomorrow, all of our exciting new products will be for sale at ppstamps.com! Yay!!

25 Days of Christmas Tags!

Hello and welcome back to our blog! Today we are super excited to participate in Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event for the very first time! Be sure to visit Tracey’s blog In My Creative Opinion for wonderful Christmas tag inspiration from our Penguin Palace Creative Team!

Today I’ve created for you a pair of X’mas tags with products from our earlier releases.

I first die cut two tags with our Snow White – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock. It’s a bit hard to see from the photos but this unique cardstock has subtle watermarks in shapes of little raindrops.

Then I spread some Gina K Glitz Gel in Red Velvet and Turquoise Sea on the Crystal Snowflakes – Penguin Perfect Patterns 6″ stencil to give each of the tags the shimmery snowflakes.

All of the adorable images are from the Cuddly Sheep’s Season’s Greetings stamp set. These images were stamped in Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink, colored with Copics and die cut using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

Then I added two sentiments from the same stamp set. I stamped “Season’s Greetings” using Simon Hurley’s dye ink Remember Me, and “Happy Holidays” in Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink. I thought these colors went well with the backgrounds.

To complete the tags, I used some matching colors trimming and added some sparkly gems!

I hope you enjoy today’s little project.

It’s Never Too Early for X’mas Greeting Cards!

Hi friends! Want some inspirational ideas for a Christmas card? Today we have a fantastic card created by Bobbi featuring the Crystal Snowflakes – Penguin Perfect Patterns.

These beautiful snowflakes were created using Frostbite Glacier Paste by Nuvo on the Crystal Snowflake Stencil. I love how Bobbi added a more subtle layer of stenciled snowflakes in grey for the color contrast.

The sentiment Merry X’mas was stamped in a Memento Teal Zeal ink and die cut it with its coordinating die.

I love how she added a layer of vellum using the scalloped circular die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt notes die set to give it a softer look.

She then added a metallic silver string to make the sentiment look like a hanging ornament which is perfect since this image was designed three dimensionally as if the sentiment was engraved on a sphere!

For the sparkly touch, she added teal, white and aqua sequins, and teal dots using Glass Effects Gel in a teal color. 

Mass producing X’mas cards is sure made super simple with this stencil!

Thank you Bobbi! Your card is so bright and beautiful!

A Gorgeous Poinsettia from Ashley!

Hello crafty friends! Today’s card has such wonderful Christmas vibes!

Ashley first prepared an A2 size cardstock die cut from the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays – Stand-Alone Die. Using our Stencils 360°TM tool, she blended Distress Oxide inks in Candied Apples and Pine Needles onto the Sacred Lotus stencil in an alternating fashion as she rotated it. I just love how simple it is to create such a beautiful look of a poinsettia!

The sentiment “Hugs” from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set was stamped in light yellow ink on a small white circular piece of stitched cardstock.

I love how she then layered that onto a piece of glittery yellow cardstock cut with the scalloped circle die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes coordinating Penguin cuts. The glittery yellow sure gives a nice contrast to the deep red flower!

Finally the entire panel was adhered onto a piece of gold foil cardstock for the shiny and glamours look!

Thank you so much Ashley! This card reminds me so much of Christmas!
