A Get Well Soon Mermaid Card With Ashley Young!

Hello crafty friends! I’m so excited to announce that Ashley Young is now on the Penguin Palace Creative Team! Ashley is so talented and we are so happy that she has joined us!

Today Ashley shares with us a beautiful get well soon card that features our Rain of Hearts – Penguin Perfect Patterns designer stencil, and the Get Well Soon stamp set & coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts!

I just love this card so much! Ashley used the Rain of Hearts stencil and alcohol ink for her background. I love how the hearts are subtly appearing from the blue inked background. The background really mimics the look of the deep blue sea.

She gave the mermaid in green a rose, as if she’s going to give it to the sick mermaid as a present, so cute!

I love the way she coloured the hair on both mermaids, so detailed. The jewel embellishments give the card some great finishing touches.

Head over to our YouTube Channel and check out Ashley’s video tutorial on this card!

Thank you so much Ashley for this gorgeous creation! And a big welcome to the Penguin Palace Creative Team!

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

Happy Track & Field Cards with Davina and Vera!

Today we have two beautiful cards to share with you featuring our Happy Track and Field (Chapter 1) stamp set and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

First we have Davina’s creation. She used the two jumping characters and the track hurdle as her main images from the set. I really love her choice of patterned paper and the ink blended golden/ombré background of the card.

She used a curved slider die to make a track for my kangaroo to move across. How cute is that! The added piece of quote is a very nice touch to the sentiment from the set, “TAKE A LEAP OF FAITH”!

Next we have Vera’s card. Vera water coloured in the couple of cute turtles for her scene. I love her choice of pastel water colors. It is so dreamy!

The hearts were obtained from the negative die cuts using our Butterflies with Love stand alone die.

Thank you ladies for these gorgeous pieces, I’m sure they will inspire lots of card makers out there!

Thank you for stopping by, have a great day!

As promised, there will be more Giveaways! Please continue to read all the way to the bottom for a chance to win some goodies ^.^ ! But now let’s check out some amazing samples from our talented creative team!

First we want to showcase the Vintage Basket – Penguin Perfect Patterns! Below we have Lynnea with her lovely creation. She blended her card using the Vintage Basket stencil with Distress Oxide inks as the medium.

I love how she used two different colors for the crosses and the squares. The color tone matches the pair of turtles perfectly! And she finished off the card with the coordinating sentiment “I WANNA RUN TO YOU”. Check out her video tutorial on our YouTube channel.

Ali made for us a set of three cards! This stencil has a uniquely vivid and strong design that you can just add scripty word die-cuts or sentiments to create gorgeous cards in no time!

I love the way Ali shifted the stencil to create multi-layers effect. She combined the “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!” sentiment from our It’s Your Day stamp set on two of her cards.

Ashley used the Vintage Basket stencil with Distress Oxide ink Crushed Pistachio. I love how she blended it from the outside edge towards the middle and fading the ink towards the centre.

She also realigned the stencil and did the blending again using Peacock Feathers. She combined the background with the cute dinosaur image from the Happy Track and Field (Chapter 2) stamp set. Her card once again demonstrates that one could make beautiful cards just by adding simple elements such as one single image/sentiment to this patterned background.

Next we go onto the Rain of Hearts – Penguin Perfect Cuts! Anja die cut her background with white cardstock with the Cross Stitched and Dots Large Rectangle Overlay Die and used the Rain of Hearts stencil and ink blended it with Distress Oxide ink, Antique Linen, Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick .

She stamped out the “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” sentiment from the My Best Pal stamp set and die cut it with the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I love how she chose a very special embellishment to finish off her card, Irresistible Ice-cream Treats.  This is such a clever idea!

Davina made for us a lovely pastel shaker card using the new Rain of Hearts stencil with Distress Oxide inks. She die-cut her card base with the Cross Stitched and Dots Large Rectangle Overlay Stand-alone die.

I love how the It’s Your Day – Stand-alone die added some the dimension to the background. She also added a fun images from our Fun Night Out stamp set, and some accessory images from the Take a Break stamp set. The confetti goes so well with the blended background!

Franci’s card is a clean and refreshing beauty! She die cut her card base out of white cardstock. I love her idea of having her blended Rain of Hearts background just in the middle of two overlaid strips of white cardstock, which really accented the frogs jumping over the hurdles!

Nice embellishments for some finishing touches!

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

Francesca’s Adorable Baby Card!

Hi guys! We have today Francesca’s lovely creation featuring one of our earlier release, Welcome Little One stamp set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

Franci chose the super sweet images from this set and color them in with a soothing and pretty pastel hue which I really love.

With our Butterflies with Love stand-alone die, she created the background with a partial die-cutting technique, so the she has the array of hearts on both sides of her card.

She chose patterned paper in the same matching tone which pops out beautifully through the hearts cut-out windows.

The piece of extra vellum detailing behind her adorably little images also adds a nice touch to the project.

Thank you Franci, this card is so amazing!
