Happy New Year! A Charming Underwater Scene with Ashley

Hello! Happy New Year everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted here on the PP blog! I miss you all so much! I’ve been busy getting all of the pre-orders on the Stencils 360°™ shipped out, and I’m so happy that I get to share the joy of crafting with this new tool together with you!

Today we have Ashley’s fun card featuring one of our earlier stamp sets, The More We Get Together.

Ashley chose a panel of light blue cardstock cut with the second-largest Dots-Meets-Dashes rectangle stand-alone die set. Combining the Stencils 360°TM and the Waterspout circular stencil, she ink blended light blue ink and white pigment ink in alternating sequence to create this wonderful underwater background!

I just love the tone-on-tone effect and how this pattern mimics the bubbles under water surrounding all these cute images!

She stamped and coloured some images from the The More We Get Together stamp set and arranged them onto the card panel, adhering them with liquid glue or foam squares to give it more dimension. She used the sentiment “You have my seal of approval” which coordinates with the adorable seal image.

She also die cut another panel for her card base using patterned paper with the largest die from Dots-Meets-Dashes rectangle stand-alone die set.

For the finishing touch, she added a few droplets of embellishments to mimic the look of more bubbles!

Thank you Ashley for sharing your awesome creation! It’s so much fun!

Thank you for sticking around with the Penguin Palace blog, wish you all a great start to the year 2021!

One Large Canvas • Two Amazing Cards – with Ashley!

Hi crafty friends, happy Monday! Today we have Ashley with us sharing a pair of cards she created using the Stencils 360°TM and the Sacred Lotus Stencils.

Ashley chose the largest size Paper Positioner and used a 7 1/2″ piece of white cardstock as her canvas. To begin, she blended alternating colours of Distress Oxide inks in Speckled Egg, and Chipped Sapphire on just one of the stencil (Barrel 2) from the Sacred Lotus Stencil set, jumping from one heart symbol to another (ie. turning her stencil at 22.5° at each rotation); while leaving one out of every four rotations blank to later position her heat embossed petals.

After she’s done all her ink blending, she used Versamark ink and added silver embossing powder on the remaining petals. I just love the shimmery look with the heat embossing!

She cut the entire canvas in two halves and used the second largest rectangle die from the Dots Meets Dashes rectangle stand-alone die cuts to cut a matching panel out of each half. These panels each measures 3 3/4″ x 5″.

These beautiful scripty sentiments were from the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set.

I love the silver foil card bases as they go really well with the heat embossed petals.

She finally added a scatter of gems to each card for some extra glitter!

Thank you so much Ashley! These cards are so amazing!

A Gorgeous Poinsettia from Ashley!

Hello crafty friends! Today’s card has such wonderful Christmas vibes!

Ashley first prepared an A2 size cardstock die cut from the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays – Stand-Alone Die. Using our Stencils 360°TM tool, she blended Distress Oxide inks in Candied Apples and Pine Needles onto the Sacred Lotus stencil in an alternating fashion as she rotated it. I just love how simple it is to create such a beautiful look of a poinsettia!

The sentiment “Hugs” from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set was stamped in light yellow ink on a small white circular piece of stitched cardstock.

I love how she then layered that onto a piece of glittery yellow cardstock cut with the scalloped circle die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes coordinating Penguin cuts. The glittery yellow sure gives a nice contrast to the deep red flower!

Finally the entire panel was adhered onto a piece of gold foil cardstock for the shiny and glamours look!

Thank you so much Ashley! This card reminds me so much of Christmas!

New Video: This Shaker Card Will Brighten Up Your Day!

Hi guys, Jo is back to share another one of her amazing shaker cards today! This card features the Stencils Stencils 360°TM Starter Kit and the Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°TM and The Orbit Stencils 360TM.

She took one of the 8″ Barrels from the Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°TM set and ink blended using a turning interval of 22.5° to create this bright yellow flower!

For the base of her shaker window, she blended a sphere using The Orbit Stencils 360°TM. I love how this image mimics the centre of a sunflower!

Using the smaller 4″ stencil from the Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°TM set, she inked a few smaller sized flowers on three corners of her slimline. This was easily done even without the 360° tool. I love the contrast of the bright yellow and green!

She used the scalloped and circle dies from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts for her shaker window.

The sentiment “You Are Amazing” is from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set.

This card is so full of positive energy! Watch her video tutorial below or over on your YouTube Channel!

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful evening.

A Simple & Colorful Encouragement Card by Ashley!

Hi everyone! Today we have Ashley back with us with a super colorful card to start the week off!

For her background, she used the Orbit Stencils 360°TM at a turning interval of 30° on the Stencils 360°TM, while ink blending with a variety of Distress Oxide inks including Festive Berries, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet.

She cut her panel using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays – Stand-Alone Die for the delicate border details. This stand-alone die is so simple and neat you could use it on any type of cards you’re making!

The stamped images are from one of our older stamp sets, Love Train which she colored with Copic makers, die cut, and adhered with foam tapes onto her background. What I love about this stamp set is that it not only is great for encouragement cards, but also for birthday cards, just-because & thinking of you cards!

The sentiment she chose is perfect for this card!

I hope you’re inspired to create an encouragement card to your loved one today! Anyone would be thrilled to receive a warm encouragement during these tough times!

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!
