Hello and welcome back crafty friends!
Thank you to everyone who participated in challenge #8, we LOVED seeing your holiday and Christmas projects over the past month! We’d like to congratulate our winner, Denise Bryant, 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 #9! It’s been getting chilly here in Canada, so we thought we’d choose a winter-themed color palette, because who doesn’t love hot chocolate in winter? Don’t forget to link your color-palette inspired projects featuring Penguin Palace stamps below for your chance to win a $25 gift card!
I absolutely LOVE the new Minimalist Christmas Tree stamp set and wanted to make it the highlight of my card. Using dye ink colors inspired by this month’s palette, I stamped 5 trees, mixing and matching different tree bodies, decorations, pots, and stars. I love how many unique combinations you can create with this set! I gold heat-embossed the stars and then fussy cut each tree out.
Next, I die-cut the Slimline Oriental Cover Die from white cardstock and adhered it onto a 3.5″ x 8.5″ top-folding card base. For the sentiment, I white heat-embossed the main block of sentiment strips from the Magical Christmas Sentiments stamp set onto black cardstock and cut them out with the coordinating die. I love that you get 17 sentiments strips with only one stamp and one pass through your die-cut machine! I adhered each of the trees onto the card using foam tape to add some dimension and chose one of the sentiments to adhere across them. Finally I added some gold baubles to finish it off!
We always love to see your creations and would love for you to join us in challenge #9! 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 January 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 January 15th at the beginning of our next challenge!
