Hello and welcome back crafty friends!

Now, onto the third Penguin Palace Challenge! I’m so excited to be sharing inspiration using this month’s summer colour palette! Don’t forget to link your projects featuring Penguin Palace stamps below for your chance to win a $25 gift card!
I love this summery colour palette and knew I wanted to do some stenciling. Plus, I LOVE techniques that result in two (or more) cards. I started with a 7″ square of white cardstock and placed it at the centre of my Stencils 360°™ using the 7″ guide ring. Next, I used the Rainbows & Butterflies Stencils 360°™ and dye inks in colours that correspond to this month’s palette to ink blend all of the butterflies and rainbows!
Once the panel was done, I cut it in half right down the centre. Then, I cut off some of the white space from each panel until it measured 5 7/8″ x 3 1/8″. To create the mats, I cut two pieces using the decorative rectangle from the Cinematic Shadow Box – Stand-Alone Die and blended the edges of one with red dye ink, and the edges of the other with teal dye ink. I adhered each die cut down to a 6 1/8″ x 3 3/8″ card base, and then adhered my stenciled panels on top. Lastly, I stamped the “Happy Birthday” sentiment from the Enchanting Paris stamp set onto the centre of each card!
We always love to see your creations and would love for you to join us in this month’s challenge! All you have to do to enter is use the challenge theme (colour palette) to create a project that features at least one Penguin Palace product as the focal point. Full challenge rules can be found here.
This month’s challenge runs until July 13th at 11:59 PDT. We’ll select a winner to receive a $25 CAD gift certificate to ppstamps.com which will be announced on July 15th at the beginning of our next challenge!
Don’t forget to link up your project below, and if you’re sharing to social media use the hashtag #penguinpalaceprojects! We’d also love for you to share your projects in the challenge album in our Penguin Palace Facebook group!
