Hello and welcome back crafty friends!
Thank you to everyone who participated in challenge #7, we LOVED seeing your fall-themed projects over the past month! We’d like to congratulate our winner, Dawn Skene, please feel free to grab and display your winner badge which can be found on the righthand column (or at the bottom of the page on mobile)!
Now, onto Challenge #8! It’s getting close to the holiday season, so what better time to start (if you’re a bit of a “Last Minute Lucy”) or continue working on those holiday cards? ALL holiday cards and projects are welcome — Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years, Lunar New Year, and anything and everything in between! Don’t forget to link your projects featuring Penguin Palace stamps below for your chance to win a $25 gift card!
I’ve been itching to use the new Everything Christmas Stencils 360°™ and this challenge was the perfect excuse! This stencil is so pretty, and you can easily blend each piece in a different colour ink without having to do any masking. I used my blending brushes and a mix of distress and dye inks to cover a 7 inch square panel.
Once the panel was blended, I cut it down to 4.5 x 6.5 inches, and mounted it onto a 5 x 7 inch card base I made from Christmas Tree Heavyweight Premium Cardstock. I white heat-embossed the ‘Tis the Season to be Jolly sentiment from the Magical Christmas Sentiments stamp set on black cardstock and loosely fussy cut it out. I popped the sentiment up on some foam tape and added some gold baubles to finish off the card.
We always love to see your creations and would love for you to join us in challenge #8! All you have to do to enter is use the challenge theme (holiday) 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 December 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 December 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!
