Penguin Palace September Blog Hop

Hello and Happy Wednesday! Welcome to our September Blog Hop! This hop is super special to us because this is Penguin Palace’s first-ever Blog Hop! We are celebrating this day with a Giveaway, and a group of talented artists will be joining me to bring you lots of inspirations featuring fabulous products from our Fall 2020 New Release!

Today’s hop starts right here on the PP blog! I’ve prepared for you two very different cards. The first one is created with the Floral Wreath Stencils 360°™.

This new stencil combined with our new tool Stencils 360°™, makes this wreath super easy to build. I used a turning interval of 45° and blended a combination of Hickory Smoke, Blueprint Sketch, Squeezed Lemonade and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide inks onto my 7″ x 7″ Essentials – Smooth Bright White 100lb. Heavy Weight Cardstock.

Then I stamped a scripty sentiment from Words From The Heart (Chapter 1) using the Crown Me ink pad by Simon Hurley.

Then I used The Sandstone Series – Navy Seal – Premium Fine Paper and Splendorlux Argento – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock and left two 1/8″ borders to formed my card base. I just love the elegant look this stencil gives.

My next card features the Scents of Fall Stencils 360°™. Combined with the Stencils 360°™, I blended Picked Raspberry, Hickory Smoke, Wilted Violet and Blueprint Sketch onto a piece of 4 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ Smooth Bright White 100lb. Heavy Weight Cardstock, at the recommended turning interval of 60°.

Then I die cut a bold sentiment with the You Are My Inspiration Shadow Dies, using The Sandstone Series – Cool Granite – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock and The Sandstone Series – Navy Seal – Premium Fine Paper.

I then added an 1/8″ boarder using the same Navy Seal – Premium Fine Paper to match my sentiment shadow.

Both of these cards were super easy to make. With the new Stencils 360°™, I did not have to apply any masking in order to blend different colors on the stencil, which saves me a lot of time! I hope you’re inspired by my projects, please hop along to the next stops for more wonderful inspirations!

Today we have 2 more stencils and 4 new stamp sets & coordinating dies to showcase so let’s jump right in! All of the stencils work in conjunction with our Stencils 360°™. If you missed our Day 1 Intro, click HERE to read more about out this innovative tool or watch our Intro Video HERE!

The 4 new 6″x8″ large stamp sets include the Warmest Wishes, Heartfelt Notes, Words From the Heart (Chapter 1) and Words From the Heart (Chapter 2) These stamps are filled with fun, modish and heart warming messages that are must-haves for various occasions.

Warmest Wishes 6″x8″ Clear Stamp Set
Heartfelt Notes 6″x8″ Clear Stamp Set

The two sets above shares the same coordinating dies set, Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes – Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes – Coordinating Dies

Some of the dies can be mix and matched for different images in the sets, as you can see from the images below.

Words From The Heart (Chapter 1) 6″x8″ Clear Stamp Set
Words From The Heart (Chapter 2) 6″x8″ Clear Stamp Set

The other 2 stamp sets Words From The Heart (Chapters 1 & 2) also shares a set of coordinating dies, as shown below. Read on to see how some of these images and dies were used in our projects!

Words From The Heart (Chapters 1 & 2) – Coordinating Dies

Here’s an example Bobbi made featuring one of the image from Heartfelt Notes. She used both Barrels from the Hello Sunshine Stencils 360°™ for this card.

I love the contrasting look between the outer ring of sunrays and the inner ring. These colors give a super warm and energetic vibes. I just love the bright and vibrant look.

The different sizes of die cut circles she used to decorate her card compliment the overall geometric pattern. Loving the white detailing she added.

One of the stencils that we want to showcase today is The Orbit Stencils 360°™. With this 8″ stencil, it is super easy to create 3-Dimensional graphics in minutes! You can easily mix and match sentiments and coordinating geometrical die cuts to achieve some interesting designs!

The Orbit Stencils 360°™

Since there is a “star” symbol as the alignment marker on this stencil, you can definitely try using different turning intervals for blending, in order to get different looks for your projects.

Let’s take a look at Anja’s card. She first cut an A2 panel using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays – Stand-Alone Die.

She used a combination of Faded Jeans, Blueprint Sketch and Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Ink on her stencil with a turning interval of 30°. The heat embossed sentiment is from Words From the Heart (Chapter 1). Loving the soft blue palette!

For my card below, I also used a turning interval of 30°. I chose 3 colors for my card namely Hickory Smoke, Twisted Citron, and Wilted Violet. As you may have noticed, I was going light-handed on this as I wanted to achieve a less opaque and more of a transparent look for my spheres.

I used the heart-shaped stamp from Heartfelt Notes and die cut it using the coordinating dies for both the Heartfelt Notes and Warmest Wishes. Then I used our The Sandstone Series – Smokey Eyes – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock as the card base, since I find that color goes very well with the Hickory Smoke ink.

For the next card, I combined Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxides. Unlike the above, I decreased the turning interval to 22.5°, making the pattern a little fuller with more layering.

I used a 1:1 format so that I can keep all of the graphics. The sentiment here is from Heartfelt Notes, and I die cut it using the hexagon coordinating die and adhered that with foam tape onto my blended card.

Finally, the last product to showcase in this release is the Botanical Garden Stencils 360°™.

Botanical Garden Stencils 360°™

Jo made a Thanksgiving card that is full of autumn vibes. As you can see, the alignment marker on this stencil is a ‘pair’ of circles. Therefore in order to achieve the stencil’s intended design, you will need to rotate the stencil using a turning interval of 60° (as compared to a ‘single’ circle which represents a 30° interval).

I love the Fall tone that she created here. She chose “Happy Thanksgiving” from Warmest Wishes, and die cut it using the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes – Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I love embellishments that she added, so beautiful.

For my final card, I chose a smaller canvas, namely a 4 3/4” x 4 3/4” cardstock. In the past, blending multi-colors on a stencil design like this would require lots and lots of masking, but not anymore! Our Stencils 360°™ makes this colorful floral pattern super easy to create.

The image here in the centre is from Heartfelt Notes, I stamped the image using Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide.

And that concludes our Fall 2020 Reveal and Inspiration Chapter!! I hope you had fun as much as we did. My goal for this release is to bring to the crafting community something unique and different. I really hope we’ve done that. If you like what you see, please help spread the word!

Reveal and Inspirational Chapter Day 3

Fall 2020 New Release – Reveal & Inspirational Chapter – Day 3

Hello and welcome back to Day 3 of our Reveal & Inspirational Chapter. Our new Fall Release is NOW AVAILABLE for Pre-Order at www.ppstamps.com! YAYYY!!!!! During this Pre-Order period, you will automatically receive a 16″ x 16″ FREE frosted zipper bag when you purchase our Stencils 360°™ Starter Kit! This frosted zipper bag is the perfect storage solution for your Stencils 360°™! So take advantage of this awesome deal which will only last until 17 Sep 11:30pm PST!

Get a FREE 16″x16″ Frosted Zipper Bag – During Pre-Order Period Only!

Today we have 3 more stencils and 2 stand-alone dies to showcase so let’s get to it! All of these work in conjunction with our Stencils 360°™. If you missed our Day 1 Intro, click HERE to read more about out this innovative tool or watch our Intro Video HERE!

First up today are the Hello Sunshine Stencils 360°™ and the You Are My Inspiration Shadow Dies. This stencil set is part of the Double Barrel™ series which contains two stencils of sizes 8″ and 4″ in diameter.

Hello Sunshine Stencils 360°™

Pair them on a design or use them separately!  This set creates a clean and simple look.  It differs from the traditional sunray stencils as you can easily apply a combination of colors to the beams without having to do any masking!  They are great for a variety of cards!

First we have our new team member Bobbi’s creation! Welcome to our Creative Team Bobbi! She chose Barrel 1 for her card, which creates ample space in the centre for lots of creativity!

She blended two shades of blue to get this gorgeous ray on the perimeter, creating a focal point in the centre where you’ll find our new stand-alone You Are My Inspiration Shadow Dies. I love the 3D visual effect she’d created here.

I just love the added bubbles and sequins that she added for the finished look, simply gorgeous!

Next we have a card that you may have seen during sneak peeks. I’ve used both Barrels for this card.

Aside from Barrel 1, Barrel 2 creates another ray of beams going in a different direction for added interest to the card. I stamped the image “Thanks a million” from our new Words From The Heart (Chapter 1) stamp set and die cut it using its coordinating Words From The Heart (Chapters 1 & 2) – Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

For my card base I used The Sandstone Series – Princess Decor – Premium Fine Paper and Cool Metallic – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock (Double-Sided), leaving two 1/8″ borders making this card 6 1/2″ x 6 1/2″.

Here’s a quick clip on how I created this card. TIP: Sometimes the carved pattern on a 4″ stencil might be very close to the edge that you might find it easier to use just 2 small pieces of tape to secure your 4″ Guide Ring™ instead of using 4 (so that the tapes don’t get in your way of inking); or even not use any at all if that works for you, as I did in this video.

In the next example, I used a 6″ x 6″ canvas. I used a mixture of color palettes here to create a fun and vibrant look.

I then die cut with You Are My Inspiration Shadow Dies on The Sandstone Series – Princess Decor – Premium Fine Paper and Mysterious Galaxy – Medium Weight Premium Cardstock, and placed them in the centre. To finish off, I sprinkled some fun matching-colors matt enamel dots.

Next product we are showcase for today is the Scents of Fall Stencils 360°™.

This stencil gives you great autumn vibes! First we have Ashley’s trio of cards!

She showcased perfectly how this stencil can look so different with different colors of cardstock. As per the alignment marker on the stencil, she rotated it using 60° turning intervals to complete the blended patterns.

I love the shimmery gold on her first card below.

She used a mixture of stamped images from the Warmest Wishes stamp set and the Heartfelt Notes stamp set. I love how she combined these images with the coordinating dies in Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes – Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

On all of these cards, the entire stencilled panels were elevated from the card bases using a panel of foam, and the sentiments were elevated as well. This gives the cards the added dimension.

In the next example, I ink blended various colors of Versamark Chalk Ink on black cardstock using the Scents of Fall Stencils 360°™. I don’t use chalk ink much often but I really love how this turned out. For me, chalk ink works best on this stencil with a light dabbing motion.

I then adhered the card onto our Snow White – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock. This cardstock is off-white filled with subtle watermarks that have a resemblance of raindrops, making it a unique looking cardstock.  

I also used some scrap paper Mysterious Galaxy – Medium Weight Premium Cardstock and Shimmery Ocean – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock (Double Sided) to create two thick border definitions. The “Forever Grateful” sentiment is from Heartfelt Notes.

Finally we have the Waterspout Stencils 360°™.

This geometric pattern creates the best visual interest!  I think this is an ideal background for some bright and bold designs.  Perfect for all types of cards and even home decor!

In this first example, I used a wide turning interval of 60°. This creates a clean and less complex pattern, with just a little bit of overlap between the alternating colors. I used Shaded Lilac and Twisted Citron which is one of my favourite color palettes.

As you can see in the next example, I decreased the turning interval by half to 30°, while using 3 colors for blending. This makes the pattern much more complex and interesting, as there were more overlays.

I chose a sentiment from Heartfelt Notes, die cut it using on of the coordinating dies. Another piece was cut using the same die, but this time with kraft cardstock. I also rotated it by 30° before adhering that to the back of my stamped piece, to give it a little bit more texture to the card.

Finally I’d like to introduce to you our second stand-alone die in this release, it is called Never Lose Hope.

I showed a card yesterday where I used this die. Here’s a quick look at it again. In this one, I used both dies from the set.

In my final example below, the sentiment die from Never Lose Hope was used alone on some kraft cardstock, and I left the shadow out.

I blended Pine Needles, Wild Honey, Speckled Egg, and Gathered Twigs on the Scents of Fall Stencils 360°™. I used the same kraft cardstock for my cardbase.

That concludes our inspirations for today! I hope you enjoyed today’s intros. If you haven’t done so, head over to our Day 1 Intro and participate in our GIVEAWAY!  In this Fall 2020 New Release & Inspirational Chapter, we are hosting 2 SEPARATE GIVEAWAYS, one on our Blog and the other on our Instagram page (@penguinpalacestamps)!

Visit our blog this week for some fun and awesome projects from myself and our talented Creative Team. Today we have 3 more stencils to showcase so let’s get to it! All of these work in conjunction with our Stencils 360°™. If you missed our Day 1 Intro, click HERE to read more about out this innovative tool or watch our Intro Video HERE!

First up for today is the Magical Fireworks Stencils 360°™. This set is great for creating greeting cards for various occasions!   It contains two 6″ barrels.  Use them separately or together!  They also coordinates with the Warmest Wishes stamp set (to be showcased later this week), greeting orbs in which fit perfectly into the centre space of this stencil design!

Magical Fireworks Stencils 360°™

Ashley made for us a trio of cards! She demonstrated perfectly how the stencils can be used together OR separately. I love that she chose different colours of cardstock to get the different themes. In these cards, she used various colours of Distress Oxide inks for blending.

For the 1:1 card, a piece of 4 3/4″ by 4 3/4″ cardstock was used for the blending, and both Barrels of the stencil set were used. I love the pink heat embossed image in the middle which is from our new Warmest Wishes stamp set.

For the tan-coloured card, a 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″ panel of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock was used for the blending. She only used Barrel 2 of the stencil set this time and she chose a turning interval of 45°. This gives the card a nice clean composition. I love the gold shimmer on the kraft cardstock.

For the navy card below, a 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″ panel of navy cardstock was used. This time she only took Barrel 1 and followed the recommended turning interval of 15° for blending. I love the gold ink she used for her stamped image. The sparkly embellishments finish off the card to perfection!

In the next example, I wanted to make a card that is full of colors and energy! I used both Barrels from this set.

I used a turning intervals of 22.5° with Barrel 1, and 30° with Barrel 2. These patterns form a fantastic overlay effect which I really like! The centre stamped image is from our new Warmest Wishes stamp set. This image fits perfectly in the centre space. I really love how this stencil mimics beautiful fireworks and hence where it got its name!

Next up is the Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°™. This set of stencils is the first of our Multi-Barrel™ series. This set comes in 3 pieces, comprising of two 8″ stencils and a 4″ stencil. 

Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°™

If you like floral designs, you will sure enjoy playing with this set! This set is super versatile as you can mix n’ match the barrels to get totally different looks!

First we have Anja’s pair of creations. She used Neenah Desert Storm cardstock for blending on both of her cards. Using Barrel 1, she chose a turning interval of 22.5° and ink blended alternating colors with Milled Lavender and Dusted Concord Distress Oxide Ink.

Then with Barrel 2, she blended alternating colors with Shaded Lilac and Dusted Concord Distress Oxide Ink, also with a turning interval of 22.5°. Finally, she ink blended Shaded Lilac on Barrel 3, again with the same turning interval.

I love her idea of cutting her card into 2 pieces to make 2 slimline cards – how clever! She used sentiments “Thinking of You” from Warmest Wishes and “Stay Strong” from Heartfelt Notes. I just love the bold white heat embossed letters.

In the next card, I blended Wilter Violet, Lucky Clover and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks on our Essentials – Smooth Bright White 100lb. Heavy Weight Cardstock. I wanted to create a landscape format card, and so I only kept half of my design.

I used some scrap papers, Splendorlux Argento – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock, & The Sandstone Series – Lavender Field – Premium Fine Paper to make a thick double border definition in between my stamped sentiment “My Deepest Gratitude” and the graphics. This bold sans-serif typeface is also from our new Heartfelt Notes stamp set.

On the inside of the card, I chose a scripty sentiment from our Words From the Heart (Chapter 2) stamp set.

For the last example featuring the Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°™, I combined Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade on Barrel 1. I then used Shaded Lilac on Barrel 2, and Spun Sugar Barrel 3. I chose a turning interval of 22.5° for the whole of my blending process.

I thought this heart warming sentiment from Heartfelt Notes is a perfect match to this feminine card.

The final stencil we want to showcase today is the Origami Shuriken Stencils 360°™.

Origami Shuriken Stencils 360°™

First we have Jo’s card. I just love how bright and vibrant this card is! She followed the alignment marker on this stencil and used a turning interval of 15°. I love how she used the bright yellow to create a beautiful ray of sunshine giving the card so much energy! The cyan blending at the back of this also pops up nicely!

Then she chose the sentiment “Hello Sunshine” from Words From The Heart (Chapter 2) stamp set and die cut it using its coordinating dies. She also stamped and colored some cute images from Summer Sunshine to complete her card! What a flawless combination – love it!

For this next card, I used a turning interval of 15°, ie. inking by making references to the ‘square’ symbols on The Base™. I chose a combination of 4 colors, and added an image from Warmest Wishes. Even though the blended shapes are spaced so closed together, not once did I need to do any masking for the multi-color blending. And it took me very little time to complete this card. I really love how it turned out.

On my next card will show you how the one stencil can offer different looks. I did a portrait orientation for this card instead of going 1:1. For this card, I increased the turning interval to 22.5° instead of using the recommended 15°. By doing this, I am actually making the geometric pattern less condensed.

I combined Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade, and completed just 2 rounds of inking by first making reference to the solid hearts with one color, and then to the hollow ones with the other color. Super simple to do! I then added a shadow die cut “Never Lose Hope“, a stand-alone die which we will showcase a little later this week. Finally I used matching-color enamel dots to finish off this card.

For today’s final card I ink blended Wilted Violet and Spun Sugar. I thought our Sandstone Series – Precious Gem – Premium Fine Paper card base is a great addition to this color palette.

The centre stamped image is from the new Words From The Heart (Chapter 1) stamp set. I die cut this using the coordinating dies and adhered that with foam tape to finish off this clean and simple card.

That concludes our inspirations for today! I think you’ll agree that simple stencils make wonders! If you haven’t done so, head over to our Day 1 Intro and participate in our GIVEAWAY!  In this Fall 2020 New Release & Inspirational Chapter, we are hosting 2 SEPARATE GIVEAWAYS, one on our Blog and the other on our Instagram page (@penguinpalacestamps)!

Visit our blog this week (9 Sep to 13 Sep) for some fun and awesome projects from myself and our talented Creative Team. Most importantly, continue reading for a chance to win some prizes! Starting today we will be showcasing our ALL NEW innovative tool, the Stencils 360°™, 11 new stencil sets, 4 new stamp sets & coordinating dies, and 2 new stand-alone dies!

Now let’s jump right in! I’m just super excited to finally introduce this new set of tools to the crafting community! These tools are perfect for creating the most gorgeous geometric patterns and overlays in just matter of minutes!

Here’s a look at this new Stencils 360°™. This system includes The Base™, 3 Guide Rings™ (sizes 8″, 6″ and 4″ in diameter), and 6 pieces of Paper Positioners (7 1/2″, 7″, 6″, 4 3/4″, 4″, 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″).

Preview(opens in a new tab)

This new set of tools allow you to create with circular stencils for the first time ever!! With Stencils 360°™, it is now possible to create special layering effects, and achieve variations of beautiful backgrounds with just a single stencil!

Moreover, create attractive multi-colour stenciled backgrounds and even wreaths in the least amount of time! In the past, if you wanted to ink blend a certain element or certain areas of a stencil, you would need to do some tracing and or masking . But with our new tool, this won’t be necessary! Check out our Intro Video with step by step instructions on how to use this tool! I promise you are going to love it!

This set of tools come in a Starter Kit, in combination with the Waterspout Stencils 360°™ which will be showcased later this week, and the new Adhesive Eraser!

Stencils 360°™ Starter Kit

This Adhesive Eraser is the perfect tool for removing adhesive residue and is a super handy tool to have in your craft stash. Best of all it comes in hot pink!

Aside from Intro to our Stencils 360°™ Starter Kit, today we’ll also be focusing on three new stencils from this release. First up is the Summer Blossom Stencils 360°™.

Summer Blossom Stencils 360°™

Combined with the Stencils 360°™, this 8″ stencil helps you creates the most stunning floral background in the shortest time!

The overlaid geometric patterns in this card were created by rotating the stencil at 30° turning intervals during the ink blending process. I created this trio-toned card using Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Inks. The image in the centre is from one of our new stamp sets, which will be showcased later this week.

In the next example, I used the 6″ Paper Positioner with a 6″x6″ cardstock. I also used a turning interval of 30° on this card.

Using Picked Raspberry, I blend while referencing to the solid circles; cleaned my stencil just once; then using Wilted Violet, I made reference to the hollow circles while blending. It’s that simple!

In the below example, I rotated the stencil at 45° turning intervals. As you can see, the smaller the turning interval, the fuller and more complex the overlays get. and vice versa.

This card was done on a 4 3/4″ cardstock and you can already see the different look that the same stencil gives.

Next, we have the Mega Summer Blossom Stencils 360°™.

Mega Summer Blossom Stencils 360°™

This set is part of the Double-Barrel™ Series, as each pack contains 2 stencils, an 8″ and a 4″. These stencils can be used together or separately. Compared to the Summer Blossom, this set creates a much larger floral pattern. This 8″ stencil gives a much bigger creative space in the middle. In the card below, this centre space was decorated using the smaller 4″ barrel, which is the perfect extension to the 8″ barrel to create more intricate details.

I used a stamp image from our new release and die cut it using its coordinating stitched scalloped die which we’ll showcase later this week. You can also mix the 8″ barrel with another 4″ barrel from a different set to create a totally different look.

As you can see in the photo below, this set is also great for home décor! If you love decorating your home with handmade arts, you’ll definitely enjoy this set!

The last showcase for today is the Floral Wreath Stencils 360°™!

Floral Wreath Stencils 360°™

Most of us have built wreaths before using stamps which is lots of fun. But have you tried to build a wreath using a single stencil? My guess would be no. But if you have, it would have taken you much needed time for the tracing and masking in the past.

All three cards below were made with the Floral Wreath Stencils 360°™!

With this new tool, you are now able to blend different colors to different areas to a stencil in one go, without the need for tracing or masking!

I only had to clean my stencil once at the end of the blending process!

If you like big scripty images, you will love our stamps from this new release! Stay tuned for more showcases later this week!

Check out our Intro Video on our YouTube Channel to see how I create a card!
