Hello and welcome back crafty friends!
We LOVED seeing your fall moodboard inspired projects over the past month and want to thank you so much for participating in Challenge #18. Unfortunately, we didn’t have quite enough participants to declare a winner, but we really want to thank you so much for participating in Challenges #17 & 18!
Now, onto Penguin Palace Challenge #19! This month we have a another fun sketch that’s a little more holiday-inspired! Don’t forget to link your projects featuring Penguin Palace stamps below for your chance to win a $25 gift card!
I haven’t made any holiday cards yet this year, so I figured now was as good a time as any to get started. I created an ink-blended background with distress oxide inks (Speckled Egg, Prize Ribbon, Chipped Sapphire, Black Soot) and added some water and glitter droplets to add texture. Next, I repeatedly stamped and silver heat-embossed a few of the images from the Fun Doodle Dividers stamp set onto white cardstock and cut out 3 ornaments using different sized circle dies.
I popped my ornaments up on my card using fun foam and added glittery strings to “hang” them from the top of the card. I stamped the large block of sentiments from the Magical Christmas Sentiments stamp set on black cardstock using white pigment ink. I white heat-embossed them and cut them out with the coordinating die. I picked one out to use on my card and now have many left over for future cards! Lastly, I added some star embellishments to finish off 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 November 29th at 11:59 PDT. We’ll select a winner to receive a $25 CAD gift certificate to ppstamps.com from challenge #19 and #20 which will be announced on January 1st at the beginning of challenge #21!
