Spring 2021 New Release Schedule

Hi Crafty Friends! I’m super excited to announce that our Spring 2021 New Release – Reveal & Inspirational Chapter starts TOMORROW right here at the blog with our Giveaway Post! Make sure you come back tomorrow for a chance to win! New products will also be AVAILABLE for Pre-Order starting TOMORROW at www.ppstamps.com! YAYYY!!!!! Find out tomorrow on how you can receive a special FREE GIFT !

Below is a quick look at some of the amazing projects you are going to see from our Creative Team this week!

For today’s Sneak Peek Wrap Up, I created a card using another one of our new 360° stencils, Kaleidoscope!

I used a turning interval of 60° to achieve this design. I chose a combination of Distress Oxide inks including Shaded Lilac, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, Pumice Stone, Spun Sugar and Tattered Rose.

I took an image from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set “You are Amazing”, and silver heat embossed it directly onto my background. Then I added a pink butterfly and its shadow die as the final touches.

I kept today’s card very simple; however, there are many other variations that this stencil can offer, and I will be showing you more on the coming week!

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration. Be sure to visit our blog this week (22 Mar to 27 Mar) for more fun and awesome projects from our talented Creative Team and myself.

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!

3rd International Women’s Day Hop

Hello everyone! Women are the embodiment of love, strength and courage, and I’m super excited today to be a part of the 3rd International Women’s Day Hop!

I’m pleased to say that Penguin Palace, among many others are sponsoring this year’s hop. The first stop of the hop starts HERE, please head over to check-out the full hop list where you will find lots of wonderful inspirations from many talented artists, AND for a chance to win!

For this hop, I made a very feminine card. This colorful background was created using The Floral Wreath on our Stencils 360°TM tool, at a turning interval of 45°.

I ink blended a combination of Distress Oxide Inks including Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Bundled Sage, Cracked Pistachio, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron and Wilted Violet. There was no masking needed to apply these different colors to the different elements on this stencil, and that is the advantage of using the Stencils 360°TM tool! And, there was no cleaning of the stencil in between inking!

To give the card a little bit more interest, I used the scalloped die from the Words From The Heart (Chapters 1 & 2) – Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts on kraft cardstock and adhere that to the centre of my card. Then I took a piece of Elegant Backwash – Premium Fine Paper and wrap it around my card to form a sleeve.

I then cut another piece of kraft cardstock to house my sentiment. To match the theme of the hop, I chose the following scripty sentiment from the Words From The Heart (Chapter 2) stamp set:

“To the world you are a mother, but to your family you are the world”

As a new mom to my first born who just turned two years old, this sentiment really warms my heart. Like some of you, I’m now a Stay-at-Home mom since I quit my job about a year ago. I’m pretty sure we share and face some of the same challenges day in, day out; yet we choose this path, as we want to spend more time with our loved ones. And I’m so glad I did it, as no matter how frustrating it gets, there’s always a moment where I think to myself that all of the hard work is more than worth it…like the moment when my son smiles and says “I love you mommy” 🙂

I hope you enjoy the above inspiration! And I hope all of us crafters will continue to be kind, positive, humble, and always support and encourage each other as we take a step forward towards women empowerment!

Ashley’s Adorable Friendship Card!

Hello guys, Ashley’s back with another cute card that will for sure inspire you!

Using the Waterspout Stencils 360°TM at a turning interval of 45 degrees (spinning from triangle to triangle), Ashley ink blended with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink on a piece of pink patterned paper. I just love the overlapping bubbles effect!

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!
