Hello crafty friends! Before we get into today’s cards, I’d like to announce that our very first Penguin Palace Challenge will be happening TOMORROW! We’re launching a brand new Blog in which all of our future Challenges will be hosted. Play along in this challenge for a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate! Stay tuned for more details!
I used a turning interval of 30° for my design. For my first round of inking, I used Speckled Egg on the irregular shaped cluster of hearts and Tattered Rose on the big outlined heart while jumping from one solid circle to the next. Then I used Blueprint Sketch on my second next round of inking while jumping from one outlined circle to the next.

Each of the new stamp sets in this release is themed to a unique destination “Around the World”! Ashley created a fun scene with our Bond With Nature Canada stamp set & coordinating dies. Her card was assembled on a mini-slimline background measuring 3.5 x 6″. The background was ink-blended with Distress Oxide inks and I love the sparkling splatters that were added to all the layers. Camping is one of the outdoor activities that Canadian loves and there are so many adorable images you can choose from this set to create a fun camping scene! Ashley‘s scene is so adorable, what a fun way to wish someone Happy Birthday!
How adorable is Stephanie’s happy scene! I love how she added the marshmallows on sticks on both the characters! Looks like they are having such a great time! The mountain & landscapes were created using the die cuts from the Mountain Landscape Scene Builder set.
I love the addition of the little beaver (one of the most iconic animals of Canada!) and the punny sentiment is just so much fun!
The Mountain Landscape Scene Builder set also comes with this large stencil that will help you create beautiful landscape details such as grassy hill highlights, snowy hill tops, or even rocky mountains!
Stay tuned for our new video which will be released a little later this week!
Candice created a gorgeous scene using the Mysterious Egypt stamp set! All of her images were colored using Copic Markesr with the additional of some gold Gelly Roll accents, and die-cut using the coordinating dies. She made a mini-slimline measuring 6 3/8 x 3 5/8″. The front dotted borders panel was die-cut using one of the rectangle dies from the Cinematic Shadow Box Stand Alone Die which will be showcased later this week. I love how she stamped out the pyramid images with brown ink which really goes well with her blended hilly slopes background. Before adhering her card onto the card base, she ran a bronze paint pen around the edges, which is really cool as it adds some extra shine that matches the gold on the mini characters’ outfits!
Allison’s card is super cool! She used several different blue shades of Ranger alcohol ink on yupo paper, along with some gold mixative. She also pressed gold foil into the alcohol ink piece when it was almost dry so that it would stick to some of the spots that were still wet. I really love how she stamped the camel with versamark ink onto gold card stock and then heat embossed with white powder! The combination of gold cardstock and white power create such a sharp look! And I love the added touch of gemstones! I also love how she placed her other gold heat embossed images diagonally with partial die-cutting!
We will continue to have lots of wonderful products and projects to showcase this week so don’t forget to visit us again tomorrow for our next post! Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a lovely day!
Hello there! Time flies, today is our last day of Sneak Peeks! I’m super excited that tomorrow we will be starting the Full Reveal and Inspirational Chapter for our Fall 2020 Release and it is something to celebrate for!
I made a bright and vibrant card for today. The colorful graphics on this card were ink blended using our new tool along with a set of two stencils (we’ll be revealing our new tool tomorrow!) These products combined to give this gorgeous pattern overlays that mimics fireworks in the sky!
The stencils that I’ve used here are super versatile. You can use them separately, or in many different ways to create different patterns and hence totally different designs.
The 3D image was from the same stamp set which I showed a glimpse of earlier on Sneak Peek Day 4. This image coordinates and fits perfectly in the middle of the graphics.
I hope this card will inspire you to make something bold and beautiful!
Be sure to come back tomorrow for our Reveal and Inspirational Chapter. Starting tomorrow, we will showcase our new products with Intro Videos, Design Team samples, and of course, Giveaways!
Hello crafty friends! I can’t believe it is already Sneak Peek Day 5! Tomorrow will be the last day of Sneak Peeks, followed by our Reveal and Inspirational Chapter starting on 9 Sep with Giveaways, so stick around!
Today’s card is all about designing wreaths! I believe we’ve all built wreaths before using stamps which is fun. But have you tried to build a wreath using a single stencil? If you have, it would have taken you much needed time for the tracing and masking in the past.
What if I told you that with our new tools, you’ll be able to create colorful wreaths with only a single stencil, AND, without the need for masking?
My card here today is an example of what I described. I created this by ink blending distress oxide inks on a single stencil along our new gadget, without any tracing or masking! It is super fun to do. The great thing is I only had to clean my stencil once at the end!
Later in the week, I will have a video for you on how to create a card like this, so stay tuned!
The stamped image in the centre comes from our new release. We have some beautiful and heart warming sentiments coming your way! For my card base, I used our Splendorlux Oro – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock to give it a classic elegant look.
Hope you like today’s sneak peek! Thanks for visiting!
Hi everyone! Let’s continue on with our Sneak Peeks! Today’s card is made with some of my favourite products from this release.
I created this due-tone floral graphics on my card. I ink blended this using Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inks on a single stencil! I find this type of overlaid patterns to be very intriguing!
And I’m delighted to say that this complex yet elegant design wouldn’t have been possible without our new tool! Stick around to find out more!
The stamped image in the centre is also from our new release. I love that this 3D image creates a the vision of having scripty fonts engraved onto a black sphere.
To finish off this card, I added some bright yellow enamel dots to give it a contrasting color! I hope you like today’s card! Stay close for our Reveal & Inspiration Chapter which begins next Wednesday 9 Sep!
