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.

Watch my step-by-step video tutorial over on our YouTube Channel!

I hope you like these inspirations. Hope you’ll try them out for yourself! Don’t forget to tag your projects using #penguinpalaceprojects when uploading them onto social media!

If you missed our Day 1 Intro + GIVEAWAY, click HERE as you only have until 11:59pm PST tonight to join in on the fun!

Today we have 4 new stencils to introduce to you for the Stencils 360°TM tool! A lot of you have been telling me that you’ve been enjoying this new tool which is so exciting for me! To be able to create something that is revolutionary for the crafting community is so full of joy and your comments mean the world to me, and I am grateful for your support!

Our first showcase today is the Rainbows & Butterflies Stencils 360°TM. This stencil is 8″ in diameter and its design is so full of Spring vibes and positive energy!

Ashley used a series of brightly-coloured Distress Oxide inks to blend this card. The Rainbows & Butterflies Stencils 360°TM was turned at 60 degree intervals and blending brushes were used to apply each ink colour. I love how she added a purple stitched hexagon cut out from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes coordinating dies and also a scalloped circle from the same set using holographic cardstock. The sentiment was from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set. Loving the rainbow-coloured gems as the final touches!

Next we have the Kaleidoscope Stencils 360°TM. This stencil is so versatile as you can create multiple looks with just one stencil!

Candice made a duo of cards with similar configuration. On both cards, she kept to a turning interval of 60 degrees. I love how she used Candied Apple Distress Ink towards the center of the stencil and switched to carved pumpkin towards the outside to get that ombre look! The cute volcano and sentiment are from the Aloha Hawaii stamp set.

For her second card, she blended from the center, worked her way towards the edges using mermaid lagoon, salty ocean, and tumbled glass Distress inks. The adorable elephant and sentiment are from the Beautiful Africa stamp set.

For my card above, I used only half of the stencil design, isolating the other half; while changing the turning interval to 30 degrees instead of using the design-recommended 60 degrees! This creates a totally different design! Watch my step-by-step video or over on our YouTube channel.

Next we have the Hearts Bouquet Stencils 360°TM. As you can see, this stencil design has two parts to it. An array of floating hearts in different sizes, and a clean outlined heart. You can use them together, or separately, to achieve very different looks! Not to mention the endless possibilities that you get when varying the angle of rotations, or mixing it with other stencil designs!

Candice created her design with the idea of a mini postcard from the “City of Love” (Paris)! How romantic! She chose a 15 degree turning interval (jumping from Square to Square) using Distress Inks in Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick. To emphasis the “City of Love”, she trimmed down a piece of cardstock that she cut from the Sidewalk Scene Builder die and framed it with the polaroid die from the Twist-N-Pop Surprise set!

For my card above, I only inked the outlined heart portion of the stencil. You can see clearly this is such a different look to Stephanie’s card. I chose a rainbow hue palette and a 15 degrees turning interval to ink my stencil. Click HERE for a fun time lapse clip!

Finally we have the Spring Blooms Stencils 360°TM. This stencil creates a gorgeous floral background full of roses!

Allison made a pair of stunning floral backgrounds using this Spring Blooms Stencils 360°TM. For the card below, she used a 6 x 6″ canvas using the recommended turning interval of 60 degrees. I love how she cut the canvas in half to make a mini slimline card! To finish off, she also used the stencil in freestyle to fill in with more leaves and dots. The scripty stamp was from the stamp set Congratulations.

For her second card, Allison went about a little different. She first cut out a piece of cardstock with the rectangular die from the Cinematic Shadow Box die set. I love the gorgeous shade of pink! She then placed that panel on the left half of what would normally be a full sheet of 6×6″ paper. She then explored and played with the rotations of the big roses and leaves to fill her card! She also handpicked a few of the elements and added them in! I am loving all the clear and gold heat embossing on this card! The sentiments are from the stamp set Congratulations.

Our final inspiration for today is from Gladys!  I really love the pastel palette she went for on this card! She wanted her card to have more of the big roses, so instead of following the suggested angle of rotation 60 degrees, she went with 30 degrees! The sentiments are from the Bond with Nature Canada and Enchanting Paris.

That concludes our inspirations for today! If you haven’t done so, head over to our Day 1 Post and participate in our GIVEAWAYS!  You have until 11:59pm PST TONIGHT to enter.  Don’t miss out your last chance! Winners will be announced on our Blog and on Instagram tomorrow 27 Mar!

Spring 2021 New Release Schedule

Hello and welcome back to Day 4 of our Reveal & Inspirational Chapter. Our new Spring Release can now be Pre-Ordered at www.ppstamps.com! YAYYY!!!!! Grab the FREE GIFT with purchase of 80CAD+/65USD+! This key chain is super adorable and features one of our favourite characters from the Rabbit Café stamp set! So take advantage of this awesome deal while supplies last!

Please continue to visit our blog for the rest of the week for some fun and awesome projects from our talented Creative Team and myself. Today we have 2 more stand-alone die to showcase so let’s get to it! If you missed our Day 1 Intro + Giveaway, click HERE so you don’t miss out!

Today’s first showcase is the Cinematic Shadow Box stand-alone dies. Unlike other smaller shadow boxes you’ve seen, this die set allows you to create a much wider box to house even more adorable characters for the perfect scene!  With the background panel plus 4 nos. of insert tabs, you can have as many as 5 layers in your shadow box with the 2″ depth! How awesome is that?!

Check out this amazing scene Ashley created with this Cinematic Shadow Box! Her background was ink blended beautifully using Distress Oxide inks in Crackling Campfire, Wild Honey and Fossilized Amber with a touch of gold splatter. She placed her adorable images from the Beautiful Africa stamp set on the four insert tabs. She stamped out a sweet sentiment from the set onto the front decorative panel. This card is super fun and vibrant!

Stephanie designed this card with the idea of a Luau in mind. I love how she added the wavy slopes (die cut from the Desert Landscape Scene Builder dies) to the insert tabs. She also used the Mountain Landscape Scene Builder die to add the mountains silhouette on her back panel! The cute images from Aloha Hawaii stamp set were arranged on the different levels of the Cinematic Shadow Box. What an awesome scene!

Candice used images from the Beautiful Africa stamp set for her shadow box. I love how she ink blended her two side panels and all of the 5 insert tabs with Distress Oxide Ink in Cracked Pistachio to achieve the green forest look! The blue sky was also beautifully blended. The punny sentiment “You Are Ele-Phantastic” finished off the card perfectly!

I made my shadow box using stamps from Bond With Nature Canada. The best thing about this card is that the completed shadow box folds flat to fit a slimline #9 or #10 envelope! Do you see the stitched rocky mountains at the back of the card? These were created using the Mountain Landscape Scene Builder Dies + Stencil set! This new 2 in 1 set gives the perfect way for creating beautiful landscapes.

As promised, please click HERE to watch the step by step video on our YouTube Channel!

The next product we’d like to showcase today is the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab stand-alone dies! This set has four different lengths of slit die cuts you can choose from to cut out tracks to form the moving mechanism. This set also includes two slimline rectangle stackables with neat and simple dotted borders that is ideal for all different types of greeting cards!

Allison made an incredible scene using the images from Beautiful Africa. She colored all images with Copics. I love how she altered the images of the jeep and the little girl, combined them with the pull tab mechanism to make it look like she was cruising in the jeep – how clever! I also like how she layered the trees for the added dimension. To finish off she added a super sweet sentiment “I love you, no lion”!

Gladys’s card is super adorable. I love how she arranged her pull tab to make the lion (from Beautiful Africa) appear from behind the bush! It sure will put a smile on the recipient’s face! I also adore the soft-tone she adopted, which adds a special warm vibe to this safari scene!

If you’ve been following since our Sneak Peeks, you would have seen my card above. I created a desert scene with images from Beautiful Africa. The three dimensional sand dunes were created using the Desert Landscape Scene Builder Dies & Stencil Set. This new set gives you the tools for making beautiful and unique landscapes, especially on slimline cards. I adhered the camel to my pull tab to make it stroll along the desert!

That concludes our inspirations for today! If you haven’t done so, please head over to our Day 1 Post for a chance to win our GIVEAWAYS! You only have until tomorrow 26 Mar 11:59pm PST to enter!

Reveal & Insiprational Chapter Day 3

Spring 2021 New Release – Reveal & Inspirational Chapter – Day 3

Spring 2021 New Release Schedule

Hello and welcome back to Day 3 of our Reveal & Inspirational Chapter. Our new Spring Release can now be Pre-Ordered at www.ppstamps.com! YAYYY!!!!! Grab the FREE GIFT with purchase of 80CAD+/65USD+! This key chain is super adorable and features one of our favourite characters from the Rabbit Café stamp set! So take advantage of this awesome deal while supplies last!

Please continue to visit our blog this week for some fun and awesome projects from our talented Creative Team and myself. Today we have 3 more new stand-alone dies to showcase! If you missed our Day 1 Intro + GIVEAWAY, make sure you click HERE for chances to win!

First we have the Twist-N-Pop Surprise stand-alone die! This set is super versatile and is perfect for creating greeting cards for various occasions.   This set comes with a polaroid frame and a backing panel of the same size. The width of these match perfectly to the centre tab on the die-cut base. The frame pop-ups as you twist on one side of the base.  

Gladys made a colorful card using this Twist-N-Pop Surprise stand-alone die. I love how she created these beach scenes! She decorated both sides of her pop-up piece using two polaroid frames and same adorable images from the Aloha Hawaii stamps set! How fun are these punny sentiments! She then cut out some bright patterned paper with the decorative panel die cut. The base of the card was cut with our new Vintage Beetle cardstock.

The best thing about this card is that it folds flat for mailing and it fits into a 6 x 6″ square envelope! The recipient will open up the card by flipping it on one side as centre piece pops up!

Another great thing about this die set is that this pop-up mechanism will work with any centre piece that you want to add to the card. You can therefore interchange the polaroid frame with another element, such as the I Made You A Cake stand-alone die to create a one of a kind birthday surprise! That’s what I did the example below.

II used Fashion Week to cut out my card base. I made two exact same 2-tier birthday cakes and adhere them on each side of the centre tab of the base. I then stamped out two sentiment from the It’s Your Day stamp set onto the sentiment tab die-cut pieces.

For my second card, I used the polaroid frames and created two different scenes using Aloha Hawaii stamps set & coordinating dies. I used Apple Green cardstock for my decorative panels. Watch my step-by-step tutorial over on our YouTube Channel!

The last product we want to showcase today is called the Gingerbread Man Gift Display! I really adore this die cut as it gives you so many options! This set includes not only the dies you need to create the most adorable gingerbread man, it also has all the accessory die cuts necessary to further turn it into earrings or necklace holder display, or an EOS lip balm holder.  It even includes a mini pocket die cut!

In my first example, I turned the cute gingerebread man into an EOS lip balm holder. The circular die in the set easily makes it a perfect fit!

For my second gingerbread man, I used the slit die cut to create a display holder for a necklace. I also glued the mini pocket onto the back of the gingerbread man to help store the necklace.

In my last example, I used the customized double U-shaped die cut and turned my gingerbread man into a pair of earrings display card! This set is super fun and will turn a simple gift into something handmade-special while bringing a smile to the recipient’s face!

That concludes our inspirations for today! I truly hope you’ve enjoyed today’s showcase of stand-alone dies, Twist-N-Pop, I Made You A Cake and Gingerbread Man Gift Display! If you haven’t done so, head over to our Day 1 Post and participate in our GIVEAWAYS!  You have until 26 Mar 11:59pm PST to enter.  We really hope you will play along with us! Winners will be announced on our Blog and on Instagram on 27 Mar!

Now let’s get to the rest of the “Around The World” collection of stamps! First we have Enchanting Paris! The French capital is one of the most romantic cities in Europe! Let this stamp set be your inspiration for building a romantic scene! The adorable poodle and the landmarks are just irresistible!

Sidewalk Scene Builder Penguin Perfect Cuts

How adorable is Gladys’s soft-toned slimline card! I love her color choices for the scene, it’s so dreamy! To set the scene, she used the Sidewalk Scene builder Penguin Perfect Cuts for the lower portion of the card. This die cut is really handy for creating street scenes and is a must-have in your craft room! The stamped images were nicely laid out across the panel that was die cut from the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab stand-alone die. Notice the little cut-out details that the garden bench die cut give? She finished off her card with a sweet sentiment!

Ashley created a romantic snowy scene birthday card with this set. She also used the Sidewalk Scene builder Penguin Perfect Cuts to set the scene. I love how she ink-blended it slightly at the bottom with Distress Oxide ink in Tea Dye and that she added a strip of bright green cardstock above it for the pop of color! I’m loving the snowy background! Her images were all arranged onto a slimline card base (3.5×8.5 inches) die cut from the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab stand-alone die. To finish off, she scattered some sequins for the extra sparkle!

Next on our list is the Beautiful Africa set! If you love creating with critters you’re going to fall in love with this set as it’s got some of the cutest animals!

Stephanie has created this fun scene of the safari! The wavy slope was die cut from Desert Landscape Scene builder and splattered with Distress Ink in Ground Espresso. I love the sentiment in this set “Time to soak up the sun” which is super versatile! I love how she gave the little girl and the lion matching color outfits which even coordinate with the color of the jeep! It’s like a little team of safari explorers! And how adorable are the giraffe and the elephant!

Candice used a simple masking technique where she cut a circle from a piece of copy paper and taped it down to her card panel. Next, she used the stamps from the Beautiful Africa set to build her scene directly on the panel for a one-layer card! I love the way she overlaid the images one by one to create depths, so beautifully done!! After stamping out her scene she colored them all with Copics. I just love the colorful scene which really pops over the white background!

Finally I’d like to introduce the Aloha Hawaii stamps set & coordinating dies! This set has some of the cutest images ever! You can create so many different scenes with this set!

Allison made a bright portrait slimline. She cut out her beige panel using the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab die. She also cut out three frames using the Polaroid die cut from the Twist-N-Pop stand-alone die to house her fun images! What a clever way to use this die! Her card is so bright & colorful and full of positive energy!
