Our Creative Team has made the most amazing samples! We also have new videos near the end of this post and over on our YouTube Channel. Be sure to watch them to get more inspirations on these sets!
Each of the new stamp sets in this release is themed to a unique destination “Around the World”! Ashley created a fun scene with our Bond With Nature Canada stamp set & coordinating dies. Her card was assembled on a mini-slimline background measuring 3.5 x 6″. The background was ink-blended with Distress Oxide inks and I love the sparkling splatters that were added to all the layers. Camping is one of the outdoor activities that Canadian loves and there are so many adorable images you can choose from this set to create a fun camping scene! Ashley‘s scene is so adorable, what a fun way to wish someone Happy Birthday!
How adorable is Stephanie’s happy scene! I love how she added the marshmallows on sticks on both the characters! Looks like they are having such a great time! The mountain & landscapes were created using the die cuts from the Mountain Landscape Scene Builder set.
I love the addition of the little beaver (one of the most iconic animals of Canada!) and the punny sentiment is just so much fun!
The Mountain Landscape Scene Builder set also comes with this large stencil that will help you create beautiful landscape details such as grassy hill highlights, snowy hill tops, or even rocky mountains!
Stay tuned for our new video which will be released a little later this week!
Candice created a gorgeous scene using the Mysterious Egypt stamp set! All of her images were colored using Copic Markesr with the additional of some gold Gelly Roll accents, and die-cut using the coordinating dies. She made a mini-slimline measuring 6 3/8 x 3 5/8″. The front dotted borders panel was die-cut using one of the rectangle dies from the Cinematic Shadow Box Stand Alone Die which will be showcased later this week. I love how she stamped out the pyramid images with brown ink which really goes well with her blended hilly slopes background. Before adhering her card onto the card base, she ran a bronze paint pen around the edges, which is really cool as it adds some extra shine that matches the gold on the mini characters’ outfits!
Allison’s card is super cool! She used several different blue shades of Ranger alcohol ink on yupo paper, along with some gold mixative. She also pressed gold foil into the alcohol ink piece when it was almost dry so that it would stick to some of the spots that were still wet. I really love how she stamped the camel with versamark ink onto gold card stock and then heat embossed with white powder! The combination of gold cardstock and white power create such a sharp look! And I love the added touch of gemstones! I also love how she placed her other gold heat embossed images diagonally with partial die-cutting!
We will continue to have lots of wonderful products and projects to showcase this week so don’t forget to visit us again tomorrow for our next post! Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a lovely day!

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°™.
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!
A winner, chosen at random, who comments on each stop on the hop (whether the stop is a Blog or YouTube channel) will win a prize of a $40CAD Penguin Palace shopping spree.
