A Colorful Mermaid Just Because Card by Jo!

Hi guys, Happy Friday! Let’s kick off this weekend with Jo’s adorable mermaid card for today!

Jo made a lovely scene using both old and new stamp sets from our shop, including the Let’s Catch Up, Pretty Mermaid Planner and The More We Get Together! Check out her video tutorial over on our YouTube Channel and give it a like!

Jo blended the beautiful ocean using Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks. And she used Walnut Stain for the seabed layering.

The cute mermaid on the treadmill is from the Pretty Mermaid Planner stamp set, while the other two doing yoga and weight lifting are from the Let’s Catch Up stamp set!

I love that she added some sea creatures and ocean related images from The More We Get Together to complete her scene! These cute images easily go together with the mermaids and the overall look is flawless!

The sentiment “Let’s Go Exercising” is also from Let’s Catch Up!

Thanks Jo for this wonderful message! Speaking of, I believe my yoga session is long overdue!

A Heart Warming Friendship Card with Vera!

Hi everyone! Vera is back with us to share her beautiful friendship card!

Vera’s card features our My BFF stamp set and coordinating dies from our latest release. I love how she made photo frames to house each group of the critters. They really make a nice composition for the card!

Her background was blended with Distress Oxide Inks, and die cut with the largest die from Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlays. You can see the elegant boarder detail close up in the above photo!

I love that she put the kitty trio in the first frame, a pair of bunnies in the second and another pair of kitties in the third, they really tie in the friendship theme of the card!

Besides stamping out the “Best”, “Friend”, and “Forever” on the frames, she also added her own scripty sentiments which compliment the friendship theme.

She added a few sequins to finish off her card with a little extra sparkle!

Thank you so much Vera for sharing this amazingly gorgeous card with us today!

Thanks for visiting, take care and stay safe!

Spring 2020 New Release – Reveal & Inspirational Chapter + Giveaway : Day 5

Hello Everybody! Welcome to our Reveal & Inspirational Chapter + GIVEAWAY Day 5! Our official day for Spring 2020 New Release is 5 Apr but Pre-Order is NOW OPEN for the Spring Release at www.ppstamps.com! All NEW products will automatically receive a 10% discount at checkout!

Today, we are going to focus on the final product in this release which is a Stand-Alone die called the Classic Diamond Backdrop.

First up is Vera’s dreamy card! I love her soft- toned inked background. She used the Dots Meet Dashes Small Rectangle Overlays to cut out two small rectangles to house her cute little bunnies from the My BFF stamp set, together with the Cola & drink from the There’s No One Like You stamp set. The clouds and smiley rainbows are also from the My BFF stamp set. She kept her card relatively simple but it is super gorgeous!

Next is Davina’s delightful friendship card. I just love the bright rainbow color blending on this diamond backdrop. She layered it against a white card base which makes the diamond cut-outs really pop! The cute kids are from the new The Sweetest Truck stamp set. As you can see, with a bold backdrop like this one, you don’t really need to add too much in order to create a charming card!

Jo made a dazzling shaker card for us using this stand-alone die. These cute images and sentiment are from the Hot Mama stamp set. I love how she created a 2-layer backdrop. The little fish tails are just the ideal addition to this mermaid card! The sequins she used also match the color of her card seamlessly!

Finally, I’ve made a just because card for you today. I’ve used the Classic Diamonds Backdrop die on Mysterious Galaxy – Medium Weight Premium Cardstock. I layered it against The Sandstone Series – Banana Boat – Premium Fine Paper on the outer edges, and the Essentials – Smooth Bright White 100lb. Heavy Weight Cardstock across the middle portion. I thought the bright yellow and white against this black & shimmering cardstock would give a wonderful contrast. These adorable images are from the There’s No One Like You stamp set.

Today’s focus is going to be on the new The Sweetest Truck stamp set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts!

I’ve been longing for a stamp full of happy vibe and that is why we came up with this set. This ice cream truck themed stamp set is just so wonderful to play with!

Who doesn’t love a truck load of sweet goodies?  You’ll have endless fun playing with this set with all the cute characters and timeless desserts! Great for birthday cards, friendship cards, and just because cards.

Our Creative Team had made some of the cutest cards ever, now let’s check them out!

Ashley made a super colorful just because card with this set. Her background was blended with Distress Oxide Inks, Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron. I love the silver glittery clouds she added. She chose the cute bear to be selling ice cream at of the window! I love the bunch of musical notes she added which made her card so much more alive! Click HERE to check out her video tutorial on our YouTube Channel and give it a like!

Next we have Anja’s creation. This card is so fantastic. I love the blended sky, which went so well with the color of the truck. Looks like the children and the cub are enjoying their time in the garden! I also love that she combined the sentiment “wishing you truck loads of “, altogether with “Fun”, Happiness”, and Ice cream”!

Vera made a happy birthday card in a portrait orientation. She had the cute ice cream truck as her background. This time she put both the little girl and the bear at the windows, and the little couple at the front enjoying their ice cream and beverage on a grassy field. The tone of this card just gives a super relaxing vibe!

Next we have Davina’s project. Her card is just perfect for Spring! I love the color palette that she chose. The colors on the images, cardstock, and patterned paper all comes together seamlessly. She also used some the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlay boarder dies to create layering for her card. Love the splatter of paint and the gel pen detailing as her finishing touches.

I’m so excited to have Laura Dovalo guest designing for us this week. Laura made a gorgeous happy birthday card! She made her own patterned paper by stamping out multiple times some of the accessory images from this set, including the 3-tier ice cream cone and the popsicles. I just love how this background is full of desserts that I love! She did some clever masking on the characters to make them look like they are holding the desserts in their hands, love it!

Finally, we have my card! I thought it would be fun to have the cub waving from behind the truck. By combining the stamp image with the struts supports and the Irresistible Ice-cream Treat embellishment, I attempted to mimic a giant inflatable ice cream advertising display on top of the truck! I thought it turned out pretty cool!

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

Spring 2020 New Release – Reveal & Inspirational Chapter + Giveaway : Day 2

Hi Everybody! Welcome to our Reveal & Inspirational Chapter + GIVEAWAY Day 2! We have had such great response on the first day of our Reveal Chapter, thank you so much Penguin Fans! Pre-Order is NOW OPEN for the Spring Release at www.ppstamps.com! HOORAY!!!!! All NEW products will automatically receive a 10% discount at checkout! So take advantage of this Pre-Order SALE which will only last until 4 Apr 11:59pm PST!

Today, we are going to focus on two more new stamp sets and their coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. Throughout the week we will continue to feature the rest of our Spring Release with sample projects from our talented Creative Team, so be sure to stay with us! Don’t forget to play along on our GIVEAWAYs! If you’ve missed our INTRO, please continue to read all the way to the bottom for a chance to win some goodies ^.^ !

We’ll start off today by showcasing the new There’s No One Like You stamp set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

This set is another collaboration with Laugh and Belly!  It is THE perfect set to let your loved ones know how important they are to you in a fun and playful way!  You can mix and match the cute emojis with the images to create the most heart warming cards!  

Now let’s take a look at our Team’s wonderful creations! First we have Ashley’s collection of 4 cards!

Ashley made four 3″ x 3″ mini cards, each with its own little sub-theme. I just love how the characters on each card have their own coordinating sentiment!

Look at those cute little faces! This set is super versatile as you can choose the different emojis to create your own images!

I’m positive that this card will make anyone smile!

Ashley used circle scalloped boarder cut to create a focal points for her nicely copic colored images. She then combined them with some colorful patterned paper underneath and voila, 4 mini cards with heartfelt messages!

Next we have Vera’s creation. I love how Vera created a photo-frame like structure for her card. The boarder detailing was created using our Dots Meet Dash Large Rectangles Overlay Stand-Alone die (which we will showcase later this week). I love the pink and grey color combination she blended for the background, so soft and beautiful!

Anja created for us a friendship card with the adorable cappuccino and froth images. She created her own patterned paper by stamping out the coffee bean image multiple times which is brilliant! The vellum sheet on top was a clever little addition to soften the look.

Davina made for us a pair of 4 bar sized note cards. For the first one she used the Cola related images as her main characters with the super fun sentiment, “You are the bubbles to my cola”! I love the polka-dotted background, the splash of white ink, and glimmery perfect perals which ties in with the ‘bubble’ theme.

For her second card, she used the pair of matcha beverages as her main image. Of course, this goes perfectly coordinated sentiment “We’re a matcha made in heaven”. So cute! These smaller notecards she chose are perfect for these relatively smaller images!

Up next we have the Never Give Up stamp set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. This is the last collaboration set with Laugh and Belly in this release.

The idea of this set is mainly to spread positive vibes with encouraging messages! This is an adorable set with a bunch of kawaii elements.  These punny sentiments will brighten up someone’s day for sure!

Anja used Distress Oxide ink on the Vintage Basket stencil to create her background for this card.  I love the splatter of gold watercolor over on top.  She also used the boarder die, Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlays Stand-Alone Die to create layering for this card.  I love the curry color cardstock she chose to coordinate with the sentiment!  

Next we have Jo’s shaker card. Oh I just love the spicy look of this! 🙂 Head over to our YouTube channel to see in detail how she created this card! The little sushi shaker pieces are the just the perfect match!

Ashley made a clean and simple card using some chevron patterned paper as her background. She neatly lined up nicely all the cute images across the table – hope they’re not being eaten! 😛 Hop over to our YouTube channel and see how she put this card together and give it a LIKE!

Davina’s card is so loveable. This looks like a family portrait! 😀 I love how she stacked the little salmon sushi on top of each other. She decorated the curtains on top with the accessory images from the set. The white gel pen details and the embellishments she added were great final touches. The boarder detail was also created from the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays.

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