Hello and welcome to the first ever Penguin Palace Challenge! It’s Candice here, and I’m so excited to be your challenge host!
We’re so excited for our new monthly challenges and can’t wait to see all your creative projects! Use this color palette inspiration and link your projects featuring Penguin Palace stamps below for your chance to win a $25 gift card!
I created two projects inspired by this month’s color palette — one for the Stencils 360° ™ fans and one for those who prefer working with the cute critter stamps!
For my first card, I used the new Spring Blooms Stencils 360°™ and distress oxide inks that match this month’s color palette (Milled Lavender, Squeezed Lemonade, Worn Lipstick, Kitsch Flamingo, and Spun Sugar).
Once the blending was complete, I cut it into a rectangle using one of the dies from the Cinematic Shadow Box Stand Alone Die, and stamped a sentiment from the My BFF stamp set on a die cut circle which was adhered to the center. I mounted the panel on a 6 3/8″ x 3 5/8″ card base and added a few pearl embellishments to finish it off.
For my second card, I cut a rectangle using one of the dies from the Cinematic Shadow Box Stand Alone Die, and ink blended a background using distress oxide inks (Squeezed Lemonade, Kitsch Flamingo, Worn Lipstick, Milled Lavender). I ink blended and cut the “sand” using a die from the Desert Landscape Scene Builder – Dies & Stencil Set.
Next, I stamped and Copic colored some of the adorable images from the Aloha Hawaii stamp set and cut them out using the coordinating dies. I adhered the images to the front panel and mounted it onto a 6 3/8″ x 4″ card base. Lastly, I paired up the “Aloha” and “Oahu Doin?” sentiments on a white banner.
We always love to see your creations and would be thrilled for you to join us in this month’s challenge! All you have to do to enter is use the challenge theme (color palette) to create a project that features at least one Penguin Palace product as the focal point.
