A Dreamy Holiday Card with Davina!

Hi there! Today Davina is back to share a dreamy holiday card with us! Looks like a bunch of happy penguins are having a party and the adorable mermaid is here to join in on the fun!

Davina made a slimline card or 6.25 inches using multiple images from our earlier releases, including the Penguin Agenda stamp set & coordinating dies, and the Get Well Soon stamp set & coordinating dies. She also used our new release Crystal Snowflakes Penguin Perfect Pattern – Designer Stencil for this card.

I love her sky background which was inked up using Distress Oxide Ink Pink Spun Sugar and Dusty Concord. The ocean was blended using Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers. The splash of bright white ink added a little more depth to the ocean.

She chose the white embossing paste as the medium with the Crystal Snowflakes Stencil on her blended sky, to create the perfect dreamy snowy scene! The pretty music notes are from the Fun Night Out stamp set, while the pretty mermaid is from the Get Well Soon stamp set.

I love the light pastel colors for all her characters and the whole card comes together so well in this sunset/dusk scene.

Thank you Davina for this fun card! Besides the cute images, I really love the balloons and hats accessories and the happy vibe of this card!

Thank you for stopping by, have a great day!

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!

The More Mermaids, The Merrier! (Chapter 1)

Hi everyone, hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! And we at Penguin Palace are absolutely looking forward to the Year 2019!

You may have seen this interactive card on Instagram from Cassie a little while ago. Anyway, it is such a clever creation we thought we’d showcase it on our blog for you.

Cassie created this super adorable peek-a-boo card featuring a few of our mermaid clear stamp sets. The peek-a-boo card technique was inspired by Jennifer McGuire. The image inside the cut-out circle changes as the recipient opens the card! How cool! You may click here if you’d like to see how the bone of the card is put together.

For the front panel, I love how Cassie white heat embossed the “Sometimes it’s OK to do nothing” sentiment as it compliments so well with her choice of baby blue cardstock. She beautifully coloured the mermaid on treadmill from our Pretty Mermaid Planner clear stamp set, for showing through the cut-out circle.

When the recipient opens the card they see another message “Learn to RELAX, you deserve the best” and the cute relaxing mermaid enjoying a box of chocolates from our Take A Break clear stamp set. The change of the image just makes this card so much fun! I also think that this is the perfect sentiment to remind your loved ones to slow down, take a break and relax! Cassie also added some mini white embossed images including the star fish and sea shells from our Let’s Catch Up clear stamp set; and some dots accents using a white gel pen to give the card a nice finishing touch!

Thank you so much Cassie for sharing this amazing card with us! Stay close for more Mermaid inspiration chapters from our Design Team.
