Today we are focusing on two new products, first up is the Fancy Gift Bow Stencils 360°!

You’ll be amazed by what these simple patterns can create when spun!  Each of the 8″ stencil alone make beautiful ornaments.  Then add some sparkles using the 6″ design, or overlay the 4″ stencil for a different look!  

Today we have two wonderful Guest Designers sharing their creations with you. First we have Jeannie!

I am in love this rainbow hue card! Jeannie just used one of the 8″ stencil alone on this card, but it already creates this incredible overlay effect with all the different colors! Gorgeous!

I love how she added holographic cardstock strips in a star like pattern for the extra shine!!

The cute penguin and sentiment here are from the Penguin Agenda stamp set!

Next we have Jessica‘s card! She blended Spun Sugar, Shaded Lilac and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxides wth one of the 8″ stencil from the set, achieving this dreamy look!

Then for the sparkle, she applied some iridescent glitter gel using the 6″ snowflake design stencil to the center of the blended pattern!

I love the gold heat embossed sentiments against black cardstock. They are from the So Blessed stamp set. The matching color gems finished the card perfectly!

You ASKED. We LISTENED! We are releasing more BIG sentiment dies! Our next showcase is the You Make Me Smile Stand-alone die.

First is Mimi’s card! She die cut this sentiment twice to create more dimension.

I really like the light pink and cyan color combo! Love the white gel pen accents on these bold letters!

The cute images and Ping Me Anytime sentiment are from the Penguin Agenda stamp set!

I’ve also made a card for today’s showcase. I kind of went for a non-traditional color palette this time.

I used the the You Make Me Smile Stand-alone die on Lemon Cake – Heavyweight Premium Cardstock, die cut it multiple times and stack them together to create a bit more dimension. I also die cut it on The Sandstone Series – Princess Decor – Premium Fine Paper for a shadow effect, then adhered everything on some dark brown patterned paper. My card base was also made with Lemon Cake – Heavyweight Premium Cardstock.

I copic colored some adorable bears from Miniature Teddy Bear stamp set and popped them on my card with a bit of foam tape, finished it off with some matching color gems!

There you have our inspirations for today! If you haven’t done so, head over to our Day 1 post and participate in our BLOG + IG GIVEAWAYS! This is your LAST CHANCE! You have until 9:00pm PST tonight to enter!

Spring/Summer 2022 New Release – Reveal Week – Day 4

Hello and welcome back to Day 4 of Reveal Week! Our new Spring/Summer Release can now be Pre-Ordered at www.ppstamps.com! If you missed our Day 1 Reveal & Giveaway, please click HERE!

Today and tomorrow, we will be showcasing some of our newest circular stencils from the Stencils 360° collection! If you haven’t heard of the Stencils 360° yet, don’t miss out as you will be amazed by what it can do!

Today we are focusing on the new Mandalas Bundle Stencils 360°! This set includes 8 stencils in sizes 4”, 6” and 8” diameter. Even though they are designed to work in pairs, you can definitely mix and match them to create totally different designs!

Just by inking different colors on the separate elements of the stencil and rotating it, you can easily achieve a colorful design without any masking needed AND without having to clean your stencil during the process!

We are thrilled to have two extremely talented Guest Designers creating with our 360° collection for this week’s reveal. One of them is Cheryl who made a trio of cards to share with us today! Her first card was created using both the large and small stencils from Pair D.

I am loving this blue palette! As you can see, the smaller stencil design is a perfect fit to the centre of the large stencil design. However you can definitely switch to another small stencil when pairing it with the large one. It’s fun to explore the different options!

She finished off the card by adding the scripty Thank you sentiment in the center which is from the So Blessed stamp set.

Below is an example on how you can mix the smaller stencils in your design! Cheryl used the large stencil from Pair B with the small stencil from Pair C to create this background. She rotated the large stencil at 30° (jumping from circle to circle) and then completed the center portion using the small stencil from Pair C.

Moreover, by simply changing the turning interval on the larger stencil, she could have achieved a whole new design! And this is a great thing about our Stencils 360° collection, they provide so many possibilities! I find that this background goes so well with this cute dancer and the fire torch images, all from the Aloha Hawaii stamp sets!

I love the black sentiment strip for a nice contrast!

For her final card she used Pair A (both the large and small stencil). I just love this sweet background which sets the scene for this cute mermaid from the Let’s Catch Up stamp set.

Love the coloring on the mermaid’s hair, gorgeous!

We are also very grateful to have Allison who is Guest Designing for us today. Allison made a trio of cards today! I am really impressed by the designs that she achieved by mixing and matching the stencils from the set!

For this first card, she layered all of Pair A and B, together with the large stencil from Pair C. It looks stunning! Her choice of colors go seamlessly together.

For her next card, she combined the large stencils from both Pair A and D, and added the small stencil design from Pair C. I just love how it turned out!

The stitched circle die cut really suits this design!

Below is her third card where she combined Pair A, with the large stencils from both Pairs C and D! Even though there is a lot of layering here, I really think the color palette makes it work!

All of the sentiments on Allison’s cards are from the So Blessed stamp set.

Finally we have Candice’s creation. In contrary to above designs, she demonstrated how the large stencil can be used separately on its own! Here she used just the large stencil from Pair A to create this beautiful design.

I love how she laid out the multiple mandalas on her card using the different color combinations, super pretty! The sentiment is from Unity and Friendship Quotes.

There you have our inspirations for today! If you haven’t done so, head over to our Day 1 post and participate in our BLOG + IG GIVEAWAYS! You have until May 8, 9:00pm PST to enter. We really hope you will play along with us! Winners will be announced on our Blog and on Instagram on May 9.

I truly hope you’ve enjoyed today’s showcase of the Mandalas Bundle Stencils 360°! This stencil set really is super versatile and gives you endless possibilities!!

Be sure to come back tomorrow for showcases on more wonderful products and projects!Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a lovely day!

International Women's Day

4th International Women’s Day Instagram Hop

Hello everyone! Today’s 8th March 2022, and I am super excited to be a part of the 4th International Women’s Day Instagram Hop!

I’m pleased to say that Penguin Palace, among many others are sponsoring this year’s hop. Head over to the Women.Beyoutifully.You IG account to start hopping and discover lots of wonderful inspirations from many talented artists, AND chances to win!

For today’s IG hop, I made this encouragement card which I hope could bring everyone some positive energy! This background was created using Botanical Garden Stencils 360° on our Stencils 360°TM tool, at a turning interval of 60°.

I ink blended a combination of six pastel inks from Catherine Pooler, namely Melon Ice, Mint To Be, It’s a Girl, Bellini, It’s a Boy and Sweet Sixteen. I used one color on each turn of my stencil to create this multi-colored stenciled background without any masking needed!

I Copic colored an adorable image from our yet-to-be released stamp set called Inseparable (a little sneak peek for you!). I used the fade-out no-line coloring ink from InkOn3 to stamp out my image as I thought this would coordinate well with the pastel background.

I clear heat embossed a sentiment “Together We Are Stronger” (another little sneak peek from our soon-to-be released stamp set called Unity and Friendship Quotes!); which I think ties in perfectly with this card’s encouragement theme.

I adhered my panel onto White-Sand Beach – Heavyweight Premium Cardstock which compliments my blended ink colors. Finally I added some gems for a little sparkle. Watch this clip to see the step by step process!

I hope you enjoy this inspiration! And I hope all of us crafters will continue to be kind, positive, and supportive of each other as we take a step forward towards women empowerment!

Thank you for stopping by, and don’t forget to head over to Women Beyoutifully You’s FB page and play along in their linky party for another chance to win!

November Inspiration Week

November Inspiration Week – Day 4

Hello and welcome to Penguin Palace’s November 2021 Inspiration Week – Day 4! All of our new Fall/Winter 2021 products are available at www.ppstamps.com! If you’re just joining us, don’t forget to head over to our Giveaway Post from Tuesday where you can leave your comments to win!

Today is our showcase of Sending Hugs & Kisses Stencils 360°! This is an 8″ stencil which is designed to work with our Stencils 360° tool. If you are a fan of patterned paper like me, then you’ll for sure fall in love with this stencil! A simple yet fun design like this one can make wonders for cards of so many different occasions!

You can easily apply different colors to the different elements on the stencil, without the need for masking, to form your own patterned paper! If you needed to whip up a quick card but still wanted to make something truly unique for a loved one, why not make your own pattered paper background!

Julie blended her panel in a bright vibrant orange, and inked on the Sending Hugs & Kisses Stencils 360° with a darker ink for a tone-on-tone effect! Then she die cut it using one of the cover dies from the Butterfly Emergence 2 in 1 Layered Dies. On the back of this panel, she used one more layer from Set 1 to build even more dimension to her card.

She also created an elegant butterfly using the butterfly dies from Set 2 in this layered die set. I love how the butterfly is semi-transparent that you can still see the patterned background behind! The matching color gems added the extra sparkle!

Instead of displaying the entire design on her card, Stefanie offset her the pattern towards the top left corner. I love the light beige patterned background which sets the scene for her die-cut heart in the centre.

She white heat embossed a sentiment from Magical Christmas Sentiments onto black cardstock.

I just love this Clean and Simple design!

Here I made a card to show what the entire stencil design looks like. A multi-colored delightful design is created only after a few turns of the stencil. It takes very little time, super easy to do and the best part, it is so much fun!

I used one color on every turn, making sure to use my microfiber cloth to wipe my stencil on every turn to avoid ink contamination.

I then added a big Happy Birthday die-cut and some gems to finish off my card!

Tomorrow is our Inspiration Week Wrap Up and Givaway Winners Reveal! I hope you’ve enjoyed our inspirations! Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a lovely day!

November Inspiration Week

November Inspiration Week – Day 3

Hello and welcome to Penguin Palace’s November 2021 Inspiration Week – Day 3! All of our new Fall/Winter 2021 products are available at www.ppstamps.com! If you’re just joining us, don’t forget to head over to our Giveaway Post from Tuesday where you can leave your comments to win!

Today is our showcase of Everything Christmas Stencils 360°! This set contains one circular 8″ stencil which is designed to work with our Stencils 360° tool. The holiday season is approaching and what better cards to make other than HOLIDAY GREETING CARDS – love, love, love!

Everything Christmas Stencils 360°

This stencil helps you create the most beautiful festive backgrounds with only a few turns. You can easily apply different colors to the different elements on the stencil, without the need for masking! Great for mass producing!

For this card, I used the a 7″ x 7″ canvas and centre it on my Stencils 360° tool with my 7″ x 7″ Paper Positioner. I wanted to leave a portion of my canvas for my sentiment therefore I masked off a portion of my paper diagonally all the way across before I started inking.

This stencil is designed to be rotated at 60°, represented by the 2 circles at the top of the stencil. I used a selection of Catherine Pooler inks, inking just one color on every turn. After 5 turns, this is what I achieved. Multi-colored stenciled background doesn’t get any easier then that!

I trimmed down my panel to a 4″ x 5 1/4″ and stamped out a sentiment from Magical Christmas Sentiments diagonally across my panel. I adhered that to an A2 size note card of Teal Sapphire – Heavyweight Premium Cardstock, one of the newest colors from the Spectrum Collection, leaving an 1/8″ wide border.

I added some turquoise embellishment as a a finishing touch.

Karen made a 1:1 card which showcased the entire stencil design. I love the non-traditional color palette which is very refreshing.

She gold heat embossed one of the scripty sentiments from Magical Christmas Sentiments on vellum, fussy cut it and adhered in the centre of the card. I love how she omitted some of the elements during inking to create a card that is truly unique! Finally she scattered some gems to finish off her card.

I also made a fun shaker card where I sandwiched the flap of a cello bag in a note card in Christmas Tree. I stenciled two backgrounds with the Everything Christmas Stencils 360°, one with lots of colors and another with just a single color. I put both cards back-to-back into the clear pocket and added in my gems and shaker elements before adhering the flap in between the note card’s opened-end. This shaker is relatively flat and compact for mailing.

The sentiment is also from Magical Christmas Sentiments!

Here’s a shot of the opened panel. I added a piece of white cardstock on my notecard where I can write my messages.

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!
