Hello and welcome back crafty friends! Today, I’m hosting the third Penguin Palace Challenge over at the Penguin Palace Challenge Blog! 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 PP Stencils 360°™ using the 7″ guide ring. Next, I used the PP 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! I used a mix of Altenew (Teal Cave, Cloudy Night, Coral Bliss) and Pinkfresh Studio (Coral Reef, Grassy Knoll, Sweet Mustard) inks.
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 PP Cinematic Shadow Box – Stand-Alone Die and blended the edges of one with Altenew Coral Bliss ink, and the edges of the other with Altenew Teal Cave 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 PP Enchanting Paris stamp set onto the centre of each card!
