Hello and welcome back to the Penguin Palace blog!
If you happen to be looking for handmade Christmas Ornament ideas, look no further! Our Guest Designer Allison is sharing some adorable shaker ornaments with us today!
These shaker ornaments are just so cute! Allison used the Dahlia Stencils 360° to create two backgrounds in the traditional Christmas palette, red and green.
She die cut the backgrounds with a circle die and added a circular ornament die cut and a piece of acetate on top to form her shaker. I love the shimmery snowflakes embellishments to compliment the wintry scenes!
These adorable images and sentiment are from Sounding Joy stamp set, and they are the perfect additions to these ornaments!
Thank you so much Allison, your projects are so pretty!
We’re dedicating today’s showcase to Gift Tags!! Who doesn’t love to receive heart warming handmade gift tag along with their present?! And creating them can also be just as fun!
I used a bunch of different colors heavyweight cardstocks from our Spectrum Collection for these tags. These cardstocks range from soothing pastels for every occasion, to bright vibrant colors which are great for holiday projects!

First we have Ashley’s dual of cards. I love the wide range of colors that she’s used on both!
Combined with our Stencils 360°TM, Ashley used only the Barrel 1 of the Magical Fireworks stencil set and blended Distress Oxide Inks in rainbow hues onto her cardstock. On both cards, a turning intervals of 15° were used.
First on her landscape format card, the bold letters die cut You Are My Inspiration was used on a glimmery black cardstock, and adhered onto the shadow cut in pearlescent vellum. The entire sentiment was adhered using small foam squares onto her inked panel, which was glued onto a black card base.
I really love the black & white contrast, plus the rainbow hue really pops!
She chose a 1:1 ratio for her second card. As you can see, she skipped a few rotations to leave a blank white space intentionally, giving room for the scripty sentiment in the centre. She chose “You are amazing” from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set.
She added a few rainbow gems which finished off her card perfectly!
Next, we have Jo’s burst of color shaker card! Jo used both Barrels from the stencil set for her design. But this time, she chose turning intervals of 45° for inking on both of the Barrels.
As compared to the previous two cards by Ashley, you can see that a smaller turning interval makes the pattern more dense and vice versa! You can see how simple it is to achieve different designs from a single stencil! And the best thing is that there is no masking needed for doing multi-colored designs!
Thanks ladies for your wonderful creations! Your cards are absolutely gorgeous!

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!
