25 Days of Christmas Tags!

Hello and welcome back to our blog! Today we are super excited to participate in Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas Tags event for the very first time! Be sure to visit Tracey’s blog In My Creative Opinion for wonderful Christmas tag inspiration from our Penguin Palace Creative Team!

Today I’ve created for you a pair of X’mas tags with products from our earlier releases.

I first die cut two tags with our Snow White – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock. It’s a bit hard to see from the photos but this unique cardstock has subtle watermarks in shapes of little raindrops.

Then I spread some Gina K Glitz Gel in Red Velvet and Turquoise Sea on the Crystal Snowflakes – Penguin Perfect Patterns 6″ stencil to give each of the tags the shimmery snowflakes.

All of the adorable images are from the Cuddly Sheep’s Season’s Greetings stamp set. These images were stamped in Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink, colored with Copics and die cut using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

Then I added two sentiments from the same stamp set. I stamped “Season’s Greetings” using Simon Hurley’s dye ink Remember Me, and “Happy Holidays” in Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink. I thought these colors went well with the backgrounds.

To complete the tags, I used some matching colors trimming and added some sparkly gems!

I hope you enjoy today’s little project.

Don’t forget to visit Tracey’s blog today for lots more beautiful tag inspiration! Thank you so much Tracey for another fun 25 Days of Christmas Tags event!


Fall/Winter 2019 New Release & Creativity Chapter – Day 6

Hello and welcome to Penguin Palace’s Fall/Winter 2019 New Release & Creativity Chapter – Day 6!  Our 4 new stamp sets, along with their coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts, and the 4 new Penguin Perfect Patterns – Designer Stencils are now available for sale at www.ppstamps.com! Grab them now before it’s too late!

Today, we are going to showcase two other Penguin Perfect Patterns – Designer Stencils! And it is also your last chance to win some goodies, so please continue to read all the way to the bottom for a chance to win ^.^ ! Now let’s check out some amazing samples from our talented creative team!

First we want to showcase the Cyber Wall paper – Penguin Perfect Patterns! Ali has for us this apricot-toned square ratio card.

I love how she starts with the darker shade in the middle and have it fades out towards the edges. She then added simple bold die-cuts alphabets to spell out the word “SHAKE” and added the “IT OFF” sentiment from our Fun Night Out stamp set.

Ashley did a pastel toned rainbow card which I totally adore! She used the Cyber Wallpaper stencil and Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry, Fossilized Amber, and Mermaid Lagoon to blend her background.

I love how she blended each color on just 1/3 of the stencil and rotating the stencil 90 degrees for some overlapping blending with the next color. A big scripty word die cut goes so well with the background.

Lynnea masked off the Cyber Wall Paper stencil and just blended the bottom of her card and make space for the kitty DJ from our Fun Night Out stamps set.

She added the sentiment “LET’S WIGGLE AND GIGGLE ALL NIGHT” beside the image. I love the glitter spray she used together with the stencil.

Watch her simple and quick video tutorial on our YouTube Channel!

Next we want to showcase our Crystal Snowflakes stencil.

Davina used Distress Oxide inks for her blended background, namely Picket Fence, Spun Sugar, and Worn Lipstick. The splatters of water, white ink and gold metallic ink really added extra dimension to the card.

I love her choice of glittery embossing paste as the medium on the Crystal Snowflakes stencil. One can create beautiful looking background in a short amount of time. She made a gorgeous scene using the café and the little girl from our Rabbit Café stamp set.

Vera made for us 3 lovely tags also with images our earlier release, Fun Adventure and Rabbit Café.

She chose water color as her colouring medium. Love how the snowflakes gave these lovely tags their cool background!

Anja made for us two charming X’mas cards that features our Cuddly Sheep’s Season’s Greetings stamp set.

On her ocean toned portrait format card, she blended Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks.

She did a landscape format on her second card. She ink blended Wilted Violet, Seedless pPreserves and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks.

She splattered water, and applied Aleene’s True Snow paste over for both of her cards. It really gave a wonderful snowy feel to the cards!

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

Early X’mas Greetings from Anja + Fall/Winter Sneak Peeks!

Hello Everyone! Don’t forget that our Fall/Winter 2019 Release Preview + Giveaway starts on 7 Oct, and our Release & Inspiration Chapter + Giveaway starts on 13 Oct! And we are so excited to show you the very first fun Penguin Peek here below! Can anyone guess what this is? Leave us your comments below! We just can’t wait to show you our new release next month!

Now for today, Anja shares with us a beautiful set of three X’mas cards featuring our Cuddly Sheep’s Season’s Greeting stamp set and its coordinated Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I love how she matches her ink blending with the color of her card base. Ink blending were all done using Distress Ink and Distress Oxide inks.

She chose one cute image from the stamp set on each of her card.

I love the way she coloured her images that they are all in such harmony with the blended sky and the card base.

She stamped out the sentiment “May your X’mas be Bright” and white heat-embossed them which make them really pop from the dark coloured cardstocks!

Thank you so much Anja! These are so lovely!

Thanks for stopping by! Have an awesome day!
