I decided to post about this because I get nearly weekly emails asking about inks and this is a great way to simply direct that question to a definite answer. Which inks are my favourite and why?

Welcome to Penguin Palace’s first ever Blog Hop.  I’m thrilled to be joining a group of talented artists in featuring Penguin Palace’s latest Fall 2020 Release.  The star of this release is not just the cool stamps and dies, but the Stencils 360 tool! I will have a video tutorial up later in the day explaining exactly how it all works. The best way I can describe the Stencils 360 tool is if the Wreath Builder Stencil and Turnabout stamps had a love child. Essentially it creates a beautiful frame…
