2022 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Welcome and thank you so much for joining us! Penguin Palace is very excited to be one of the Super Sponsors to the annual Coffee Lovers Blog Hop once again!

The hop starts today and runs until 18 Nov. This is a traditional Coffee Lovers Blog Hop in which you will need to link up a newly created project to be eligible to win one of many fabulous prizes, including a $40 Gift Card to the Penguin Palace shop! For all the details, please head over to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog!

Today I have for you a coffee-themed card of course! Below is a YouTube Short to show you how I put together this card!

First I used the Sending Hugs and Kissess Stencils 360° on an A2 size panel with various ink colors for the background. This stencil allows you to make your own colorful patterned paper in just a few minutes!

After completing the background, I die cut my panel using the hearts scalloped border die (from Fancy Hearts Scalloped and Dynamite Borders Stand-Alone Die) to add some beautiful details!

I also die cut a couple of stitched hearts using the hearts die from this set on Hot Fudge Heavyweight Premium Cardstock.

I stamped out some adorable images from There’s No On Like You, Copic colored and die cut them with the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. I thought the sentiment “You Are the Froth to my Cappuccino” is perfect for this card!

I adhered all the elements on my card (popped up some of them using foam tape) and glued the panel onto my card base in Hot Fudge Heavyweight Premium Cardstock. Finally I stamped out the steamy swirl in Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide to finish it off!

I hope you enjoyed my coffee-themed card and thank you so much for stopping by. Head over to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog with a cup of coffee or cocoa in your hand and check out all the amazing sponsors and participants playing along on the hop! Hop will run until the 18th Nov and winners will be announced there!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Super Delightful Scenes With Jo and Ashley

Hi guys, hope you had a great weekend. I have on our blog today, from designers Jo and Ashley, cards which features our Fun Night Out stamp set and our new tool Stencils 360°TM.

First we have Jo’s card. I love how she used the Orbit Stencils 360°TM and blended at a turning interval of 45°, to create this fun background which resonates so well with the disco ball image from the Fun Night Out stamp set – super brilliant!

She created this fun scene with these adorable puppies from Fun Night Out. I love the little addition of the microphone from the Penguin Agenda stamp set, looks like these cuties are having a wonderful karaoke night!

You can watch the video below or click HERE to watch it on our YouTube Channel.

Next we have Ashley’s awesome card. Combining the Stencils 360°TM tool along with the Magical Fireworks custom stencils, Ashley blended a number of Distress Oxide colors on black cardstock for this unique look.

I really love the composition of this card. The fireworks background really gives a nice focal point on the DJ kitty!

The sentiment “I Gin-uinely care for you” is a fun touch to this card. Both the top panel and the base were cut using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlay Stand Alone Die which gives these lovely border details.

She added a bunch of the accessory images along with some colorful gems to finish off. I just love the cool vibe of this card!

Thank you so much Jo and Ashley for sharing these delightful cards and videos with us!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!
