Happy New Year! A Charming Underwater Scene with Ashley

Hello! Happy New Year everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted here on the PP blog! I miss you all so much! I’ve been busy getting all of the pre-orders on the Stencils 360°™ shipped out, and I’m so happy that I get to share the joy of crafting with this new tool together with you!

Today we have Ashley’s fun card featuring one of our earlier stamp sets, The More We Get Together.

Ashley chose a panel of light blue cardstock cut with the second-largest Dots-Meets-Dashes rectangle stand-alone die set. Combining the Stencils 360°TM and the Waterspout circular stencil, she ink blended light blue ink and white pigment ink in alternating sequence to create this wonderful underwater background!

I just love the tone-on-tone effect and how this pattern mimics the bubbles under water surrounding all these cute images!

She stamped and coloured some images from the The More We Get Together stamp set and arranged them onto the card panel, adhering them with liquid glue or foam squares to give it more dimension. She used the sentiment “You have my seal of approval” which coordinates with the adorable seal image.

She also die cut another panel for her card base using patterned paper with the largest die from Dots-Meets-Dashes rectangle stand-alone die set.

For the finishing touch, she added a few droplets of embellishments to mimic the look of more bubbles!

Thank you Ashley for sharing your awesome creation! It’s so much fun!

Thank you for sticking around with the Penguin Palace blog, wish you all a great start to the year 2021!

One Large Canvas • Two Amazing Cards – with Ashley!

Hi crafty friends, happy Monday! Today we have Ashley with us sharing a pair of cards she created using the Stencils 360°TM and the Sacred Lotus Stencils.

Ashley chose the largest size Paper Positioner and used a 7 1/2″ piece of white cardstock as her canvas. To begin, she blended alternating colours of Distress Oxide inks in Speckled Egg, and Chipped Sapphire on just one of the stencil (Barrel 2) from the Sacred Lotus Stencil set, jumping from one heart symbol to another (ie. turning her stencil at 22.5° at each rotation); while leaving one out of every four rotations blank to later position her heat embossed petals.

After she’s done all her ink blending, she used Versamark ink and added silver embossing powder on the remaining petals. I just love the shimmery look with the heat embossing!

She cut the entire canvas in two halves and used the second largest rectangle die from the Dots Meets Dashes rectangle stand-alone die cuts to cut a matching panel out of each half. These panels each measures 3 3/4″ x 5″.

These beautiful scripty sentiments were from the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set.

I love the silver foil card bases as they go really well with the heat embossed petals.

She finally added a scatter of gems to each card for some extra glitter!

Thank you so much Ashley! These cards are so amazing!

A Super Sweet Just Because Card with Anja!

Hi friends! Anja is back today with a super cute card featuring The Sweetest Truck stamp set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts!

First she die cut two panels using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays and the Dots Meet Dashes Small Rectangles Overlays. She chose a rainbow patterned paper as her back panel and white cardstock for the top panel.

I love that she took the negative space from a die cut heart as a template and stamped out cute little desserts multiple times to create this gorgeous pattern in a heart shape! They all look super yummy! All the images were then colored with Copic markers.

She also stamped the little girl from the set and added a donut in her hand! Our die cut piece for this little girl has a slot at her hand so that you give her any wonderful dessert from the set as you wish!

To finish off, she added a sentiment “STAY SWEET” from the Rabbit Cafe stamp set, which is perfect for this card!

Thank you Anja! I love this sweet and adorable card!

Ashley’s Magical Underwater Scene!

Hi there! Ashley is back today with a just because card of a beautiful underwater scene!

Ashley used the cute pretty mermaid from the Get Well Soon stamp set, and images from The More We Get Together stamp set to create this gorgeous card!

I love the background she created using watercolors. The largest die from Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlays was used to cut her panel. She added some white paint splatter for some added texture. The sentiment from the Sending Kisses Your Way was stamped onto a thin strip of cardstock and adhered onto the card. 

I like that she added some clear Tonic Nuvo drops around the scene to mimic the look of water bubbles.

Thank you Ashley your card is so adorable!

An Adorable Encouragement Card with Jo!

Hi guys, happy Friday! Jo is back today with a lovely encouragement card for all of us, featuring products from our very first release, the Bee Happy stamp set! Check out her video tutorial on our YouTube Channel!

This is a clean and simple card. She took images from the Bee Happy stamp set and colored them with Copics and die cut them with the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. I love that she stamped a whole bunch of flowers and put them into the Honey jar and made it into a pot of plant!

She used the largest dies from both the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays and the Dots Meet Dashes Small Rectangles Overlays for her card panels and layered them.

I really love the color combination on this card, including the bright yellow hues together with the black and white card stock, and the large black alphabet die cut letters.

Let’s all BEE Positive! Thank you Jo for your encouragement card! We all need this positivity around us!
