Hello and welcome back crafty friends!
We LOVED seeing your celebratory projects over the past month and want to thank you so much for participating in Challenge #11! Congratulations to our Challenge #11 winner, Beverly (@bevscreativepath), 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 Penguin Palace Challenge 12! I’m so excited to be sharing inspiration for our first ever sketch challenge! Don’t forget to link your projects featuring Penguin Palace stamps below for your chance to win a $25 gift card!
I started by creating a 5″ x 7″ card base and die-cutting the Floral Garden Cover Die out of white cardstock. Then, I created a DIY stencil using a scrap piece of 5″ x 7″ cardstock from which I cut out a 4″ circle using a circle die. I lined up this DIY stencil with my card base and ink blended a soft gradient using dye inks on the card front. Then, I lined up the DIY stencil with the Floral Garden die-cut and did the same (this ensures my ink blending is in the same spot on both pieces and will line up properly). Once both pieces were ink blended, I glued the die-cut panel onto my card base.
For the focal point, I used a few layers of the Butterfly Emergence 2 in 1 Layered Dies (I glued together two die-cuts of Set 2, Layer 3, and one of Layer 4) and adhered it to the center of my ink blended circle. Finally, I white heat-embossed a sentiment from the My BFF stamp set onto a grey cardstock sentiment strip and adhered it to the card.
We love seeing 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 sketch 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 April 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 April 15th at the beginning of our next challenge!
