June Inspiration Week – Day 2

Hello and welcome to Penguin Palace’s June Inspiration Week – Day 2! If you’re just joining us, don’t forget to head over to our Giveaway Post from yesterday where you can leave your comments to win a Special Goodie Bag worth over $170CAD/$130USD!

Today we’ll be showcasing a new 6” x 6” stencil, The Rose – Close Up! This gorgeous stencil makes it fun and easy to whip up a beautiful card in half the time!

Check out Karen’s charming card below!

I love the light pink/purple hue with a touch of bright yellow color-combo! It’s so refreshing! The “Sending Warm Hugs” sentiment is from the Unity and Friendship Quotes.

Julie went for a more traditional color choice for her rose. The color gradients really give the rose a very realistic look! What an amazing job by Julie!

I love the splashes of paint in a few different colors which makes the card even more interesting! The sentiment is from the new So Blessed stamp set.

Next is my card. I wanted a pastel look on my rose, so I blended Distress Oxides in Tattered Rose and Worn Lipstick. The sentiment is also from the new So Blessed stamp set.

I used Cotton Candy and cut out an A2 size back panel. To finish off, I added some clear hearts embellishments of different sizes to give it a more elegant look!

Lastly I wanted to share this card again as I really like how it turned out. Some of you might have seen this during Reveal Week last month.

The sans serif letters are from Modern Deluxe Alphabets and I used the Coordinating Templates to arrange the bold letters.

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s inspirations! We will continue to have lots of wonderful products and projects to showcase this week so don’t forget to visit us again tomorrow!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a lovely day!

Spring 2021 New Release Sneak Peek Day 3

Spring 2021 New Release – Sneak Peek Day 3

Spring 2021 New Release Schedule

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to Day 3 of Sneak Peeks on our upcoming release! As a papercrafter, I like to try creating different styles of cards. I definitely love making cute and whimsical cards; nonetheless, I also love to create floral cards that have a more classic or elegant look. At least that was my goal for today’s sneak peek ^.^!

As I mentioned, this release has something for EVERYONE! If you adore floral cards, be sure to check out this new circular stencil, Spring Blooms Stencils 360°TM. If you haven’t tried our new tool yet, now’s the time! You’ll find that this tool is super easy to use, and it is also fun and additive!

Take this stencil for a spin, and you will be able to create a colorful floral background in just a few minutes, without the need for masking/tracing. The design of this stencil is clean, simple, and would definitely make a great card for any occasion!

I chose a pastel palette for my card. I blended a combination of Shaded Lilac, Twisted Citron, Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade, Pumice Stone and Cracked Pistachio on every turn. After just 5 turns of 60° (ie. jumping from solid circle to solid circle on the Base), the background was complete!

I used ‘Crown Me’ dye ink by Simon Hurley Create to stamp out the image “THANK YOU”, which is from our Heartfelt Notes stamp set. For a final touch of detail, I thought a lacy border would compliment the background of this card. What’s your take on it?

I hope you enjoyed today’s sneak peek. Be sure to come back tomorrow for more!
