Penguin Palace Stamps challenge#1

A Friendship Card Inspiration from Candice

Happy Friday crafty friends! I’d like to remind all that we are having our first ever Penguin Palace Challenge over on our PP Challenge Blog. Enter before 13th May for a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to our store!

Today Candice have for us a beautiful friendship card inspiration. She used the Twist-n-Pop Surprise Stand-Alone die to create this fun interactive card.

She created two mini-scenes on each of the rectangle die cut panels by stamping, masking, some of the adorable critters from the My BFF stamp set. She ink blended the background using Squeezed Lemonade, Kitsch Flamingo, and Milled Lavender Distress Oxide Inks, and then removed the masks to add some copic coloring.

She ink blended the side decorative panels with the same distress oxide inks. These colors match perfectly to this month’s Color Palette Inspiration for our Monthly Challenge!

To finish off, she added two tabs with sentiments from the My BFF stamp set. I love the white highlights she added to the stamped images to make them pop! The coolest thing is that this pop-up card folds flat and fits into a 6 x 6″ envelope for mailing!

Thank you so much for this super delightful inspiration Candice!

Now is your turn, don’t forget to upload your entry on our Challenge Blog and your social media by 13th May and hashtag using #penguinpalaceprojects!

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend!

Spring 2021 New Release – Sneak Peek Day 2

Hello crafty friends! We’re thrilled to continue on with our Spring 2021 New Release Sneak Peeks! Today I have for you a super fun interactive card. This card features a new addition to our Stand-Alone dies collection and it’s super easy to make!

The greatest thing about this set of dies is that it creates a pop-up card that folds flat and fits into a 6″ x 6″ square envelope for mailing! It is also super fun to do! This die set comes with a polaroid frame which pops up as you twist on one side of the card base (you’ll see this card in action in the step-by-step video on our YouTube Channel next week ^ . ^).

You can easily decorate both sides of the card with the picture frames and images as I have done here, add the stitched covering panels, include a couple of sentiment tabs and voilà! The cute images you see on this card are from our new stamp set, Aloha Hawaii! This set is super adorable with punny sentiments that you can use for various occasions!

Another great thing about this die set is that you can switch out the polaroid frame as the pop-up element for another, such as your favourite die-cut critter, or a 2-tier birthday cake (which will also be part of the new release by the way), to create different pop-up surprises!

I hope you enjoyed today’s Sneak Peek. Don’t forget that Reveal & Inspiration Chapter begins on 22nd Mar (next Monday). We’ll have wonderful inspirations featuring our new release from our Creative team, and of course, Giveaways – so stay with us!

Anja’s Interactive Underwater Scene!

Hello crafty friends! Today Anja is sharing with us a fun card featuring The More We Get Together stamp set and coordinating dies.

All the images were beautifully colored using Copics markers. She cut her two card panels using the largest dies from the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays and the Cross Stitched and Dots Large Ractangles Overlays. She then used a wave boarder die from My Favourite Things on the bottom panel.

The Cross Stitched and Dots upper panel was blended using Distress Oxide Ink Squeezed Lemonade. And with a sunray stencil, she created gorgeous sunray beams on top of that with the same ink, but this time adding a bit more pressure while blending to get the darker hue.

The wavy panel was blended using Mermaid Lagoon and Broken China. She then added some white pigment ink to extend those sunray beams into the ocean!

I love that she added an action wobbler for the blow fish to make it even more interesting! See the cute fish in action below!

Finally she added the sentiment, “You Blow Meow Away” to finish off!

Thanks Anja! I love this cute underwater scene!

Thanks for stopping by everyone!

Jo’s Bee Happy Shaker Card Video!

Hi crafty friends. Jo is back to share another beautiful interactive card for us today! Check out her video below or click HERE to watch it over on our YouTube Channel!

This card is so vibrant and bright! I love how the shaker card window shows a bunch of pink hearts as the background, created using the Rain of Hearts stencil.

Most of the images on this card were from the Bee Happy stamp set.

The cute little bow on the lady bee was from the Sweetest Truck stamp set. I love that she stamped out the swirly trail image multiple times on the white background to form a cool pattern. She also added some boarder details to her card using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlays stand alone die.

I really love the big red heart frame die cut which is a gorgeous accent making the shaker window the focal point of her card!

Thanks Jo! This is such a fun and happy creation!

A Sweet Encouragement Shaker Card With Jo!

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday! Jo is back to share a super sweet card with us today! You can watch her video tutorial below or over on our YouTube Channel!

Jo combined images from My BFF, The Sweetest Truck, and the Bee Happy stamp sets.

To create her shaker window, she used both the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays and the Dots Meet Dashes Small Rectangles Overlays.

I really love the look of the grassy fields. She used tiny rainbows as her shaker elements which matches perfectly with the smiley rainbow from the My BFF stamp set.

The sentiments, “Tomorrow will be a good day” and “I have your back” were both from the My BFF stamp set. Thank you Jo! This scene is so amazing!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
