Today we are showcasing two new additions to our Stencils 360° line!

Gazania Stencils 360°

The floral design created with these stencils has close resemblance to a Gazania, also known as Treasure Flower which represents wealth and richness!

Candice used Stencil A to create this gorgeous background by spinning it at 22.5 degree intervals.

She turned this into a fun Christmas card by added a Christmas tree image from The new Sounding Joy stamp set. The sentiment is from Magical Christmas Sentiment.

I love the touch of gold accents she added behind the Christmas tree!

For my card below I started by spinning Stencil A at 15 degree interval, and followed by 22.5 degree intervals, using two different ink colors.

I then used Stencil B for inking and spun it at 30 degree intervals using a darker shade.

Finally I spun Stencil C at 30 degree intervals to add details to the center of the flower. I just love the depth that the combination of overlays create. The sentiment is from Heartfelt Notes.

Mediterranean Stencils 360°

Mediterranean style features bold designs emphasizing textures and unique color palettes. With these stencils, you can experiment with earthy tones like terracotta, yellow, turquoise, or metallic in copper and gold. You just might find your new favourite ink color combo while playing with this stylish design!

By changing the turning interval of the stencil, I was able to create two very different designs for my cards.

I used a 45 and 30 degree intervals for the first and second card respectively. I wanted to choose color palettes that would accentuate the Mediterranean vibes.

I then popped these backgrounds onto bright vibrant back panels which complement these color palettes.

All the sentiments are from Heartfelt Notes stamp set.

I clear heat embossed the sentiment in this card to make it stand out even more from the background.

And that concludes our 5 Days Countdown! Thank you so much for sticking with us this week! All of your favourite products will hit the shop tomorrow at 9AM PST! . Last chance to leave your comments on our blogs for a chance to win as giveaway closes TONIGHT at 9:00p.m. PST!

Most Wonderful Time Stamps & Coordinating Dies, Outdoor Ice Rink Scene Builder Dies + Stencil Set

This sure is a lovely addition to your wintry collection!  Send warm wishes to your coolest friends with the adorable characters from this stamp set!  Pair this set with our new Outdoor Ice Rink Scene Builder Dies + Stencil set to create the most unique and exciting wintry scenes! 

First we have Candice’s amazing creation!

I just love the starry night sky background, it looks so magical! I also love how she kept a cohesive color tone, from the background, to the cute characters and to her choice of glittery gems!

For my card below, I used all of the dies from Outdoor Ice Rink Scene Builder Dies + Stencil Set to die cut the building skyline (+shadow), the shrubs and the ice rink & lamp posts on various colored cardstocks.

I then used the coordinating stencil to add colors to the individual elements like the lamps, shrubs branches, and ice rink board. Fort the extra touch of details, this stencil even has a cut out just for inking the bottom trim to the ice rink board!

Poinsettia Stencils 360°

Create a multi-color wreath with this poinsettia circular stencil.  Great for a festive yet effortless background.  Pair it with a charming sentiment from Magical Christmas Sentiments to complete your project!

Check out this goregous creation by Candice!

Candice chose a traditional color palette for her card. I love the red and green combination which gives a very festive vibe!

The completed wreath measures approximately 5″ x 5″.

On the other hand, I did a card using a non-traditional christmas color palette. I used light yellow for my poinsettia with a touch of orange near the centers.

I gold heat embossed a sentiment from Magical Christmas Sentiment and added a back panel in shiny gold cardstock to match, leaving an 1/8″ narrow border. My finished card measures 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″.

I hope you enjoyed today’s showcases and inspirations. Leave a comment below before you go and let me know what you think! And be sure to come back tomorrow for more Product Previews and Giveaways!

Now let’s continue on with our products preview!

Sounding Joy stamp set and Coordinating Dies

Create a charming and harmonious scene featuring this adorable quartet + snowman playing the triangle! A selection of snow covered street furnitures help to create the most festive and peaceful atmosphere. 

To showcase all of the adorable images from this stamp set, I used the Cinematic Shadow Box die to set the scene. I really love the layers and depth that you can achieve with this die. I ink blended Distress Oxides in Black Soot, Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, and Cracked Pistachio on my back panel. I added a spritz of water and splash of white paint for the added dimension.

All of the characters were colored using Copics, and I simply scattered the images onto the four tabs of my shadow box! For the music notes, I glued them onto pieces of acetate before adhering them to the tabs for a floating effect.

Abstract Blossom Stencils 360°

An abstract floral design like this one provides endless possibilities!  Perfect for any occasion, this stencil design is large enough for creating a 4 for 1 design with a 7 1/2” x 7 1/2” canvas.  You’ll be mesmerized by the stunning overlays with just a few turns of the stencil. 

In this example, I used a 7 1/2″ canvas and rotated the stencil at 30° intervals. To ink blend, I used Spun Sugar and Tattered Rose Distress Oxides. After just two turns, this gorgeous floral design appeared! The stencil is made from transparent mylar which allows easy visualization throughout the inking process.

The dimension that this stencil gives is incredible considering the very little time needed to complete the ink blending! I cut my canvas into quarters and added sentiments from Heartfelt Notes and Words From the Heart Chapter 2 to complete my cards.

For my next card, I rotated my stencil at 15° intervals, creating even more overlays for my patterns.

For this duo, I cut my large canvas into halves, and then further cut each half into four equal panels. I then adhered them onto a slimline back panels cut from Cotton Candy cardstock. The sentiments were from the So Blessed stamp set.

Flurry Snowflakes Stencils 360°

A flurry snowflakes background is definitely one of the most festive and versatile background you can create for holiday cards!  This set comes with two 6” stencils which you can use separately or together.  Spin these stencils at different angles to create your favourite snowflake wreath!

These completed snowflake wreaths measure approximately 4″ in diameter.

Candice created for us a circular greeting card. She used both stencils together and rotated both at 60° intervals.

She kept a traditional snowflakes color palette and added a darker color back panel for a nice contrast. She also scattered gems of different designs to complete her card.

For my two examples, I went for more non-traditional color palettes. I used a few pastel toned Distressed Oxide for ink blending. I also used the same angle of rotation as per Candice’s card. I used a circle die on my design, and then cut out a slightly larger circle on Vintage Beetle Cardstock to create a circular negative space.

For my last card, I went with a shaker design in which I simply used acetate as my shaker pocket. This time I chose Shaded Lilac and Spun Sugar for ink blending. The stamped image in the middle is from Magical Christmas Sentiments.

I hope you enjoyed today’s showcases and inspirations. Leave a comment below before you go and let me know what you think! And be sure to come back tomorrow for more Product Previews and Giveaways!
