A Clean & Elegant Floral Card by Anja!

Hello everybody! Today Anja is back to share a beautiful floral card created using the new Floral Wreath Stencils 360° TM!

Anja first cut a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card panel using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays stand-alone die.

With our new Stencils 360°TM and the new Floral Wreath Stencils 360° TM, she ink blended a combination of Mowed Lawn, Bundled Sage, Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick and Speckled Egg Distress Oxide inks while turning her stencil at an interval of 45°.

This instantly results in a super elegant floral background for her card!

She stamped out a sentiment “May You Be Happy Always” from Words From The Heart (Chapter 2) using two of the same inks she used for her background to give it a cohesive look. This sentiment was die cut using a circular die from Words From The Heart (Chapters 1&2) Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

To give it a little more interest, she further die cut another piece using the hexagon die from Words From The Heart (Chapters 1&2) Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts on a matching color cardstock and adhered that underneath the sentiment.

Wreath building are certainly cool with stamps, but have you tried it with Stencils yet? If not, you are missing out on the fun!

Thanks Anja for your wonderful creation! I just love the feminine and delicate look of this card!

Cuteness Overload!!

Hello! I just had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with my family here in Canada and I’m super grateful. To start this week off, I have two super cute cards from our Creative Team!

First up we have Ashley’s Happy Birthday card!

Oh boy, this card is so full of positive energy!! I love how Ashley made this colorful background using the Waterspout Stencils 360TM. Good news is that this stencil already comes in the Stencils 360TM Starter Kit!

Ashley cut her card panel with the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlays for some added border detailing.

Using the Waterspout Stencils 360TM, she chose a turning interval of 30° and blended a variety of rainbow colors for her background using Distress Oxide inks (Festive Berries, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet). She chose a pair of adorable puppies from Fun Night Out for her focal images, along with some accessory images and coloured them in Copic Markers.

To finish off, she added some gems to give it the extra sparkly look! Such a fun and happy card!

Next we have Bobbi’s slimline creation. Her card measures 3-1/2″ wide X 8-1/2″ tall, and she paired the Never Lose Hope Shadow Dies with the Happy Track and Field (Chapter 1) stamp and coordinating die sets.

I just love the composition of this card! She used the trio of fans in the centre and added the Never Lose Hope shadow die as her bold sentiment. I love how she gave each fan the extra colorful flag to wave! Super cute!

She stamped the leaping frog head, cut that out using the heart shape part of the shadow phrase die and added it to the heart in the word “HOPE”. This resonates with the frog leaping on top!

Additional windy swirls were added using a Uni-ball Pen Signo white gel Pen to complete her card.  The sentiment “Take a Leap of Faith” adds the perfect finishing touch.

Thank you so much Ashley and Bobbi for your amazing creations!

It’s Never Too Early For a Christmas Card with Anja!

Hello! Today Anja has for us a gorgeous X’mas card featuring the new Sacred Lotus Stencils 360° TM.

Anja used a card panel of size 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and it was die cut using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays. She picked up Barrel 2 and ink blended Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink in the first round by making references to the outlined hearts on the Stencils 360°TM BASE. Then for her second round of inking, she blended Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide ink over the same Barrel 2 by making reference to the solid hearts.

Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°™

This alone, created a beautiful floral overlapping geometric pattern!

She then further applied applied Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Black Ash with a Nuvo Blending Sponge, over Barrel 1. This bold black really created a the perfect contrast!

The Merry X’mas stamp was from the Warmest Wishes stamp set. I love that she stamped it using the same Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide ink for the cohesive look. It was then die cut using a circular die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I love that she die cut another piece using matching cardstock on the scalloped die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts to go beneath the sentiment. This helps accentuates the foral pattern formed using the dark Embellishment Mousse!

The added snowflake embellishments made a fun finishing touch to her card!

Thank you so much Anja! Your card is spectacular!

A Bright and Beautiful Happy Birthday Card with Bobbi!

Hi everyone and welcome back to our blog! Today Bobbi shares with us a gorgeous birthday card featuring the new Magical Fireworks Stencils 360°TM!

Using just Barrel 1 from this stencil set, Bobbi used a turning interval of 15° for blending her duo-tone sunrays.

I really love the blue and orange palette which is absolutely bright and cheerful! She heat embossed an image “May you be happy always” from the Words From The Heart (Chapter 2) stamp set onto vellum and die cut that using the big circle die from Words From The Heart (Chapters 1 & 2) – Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

Just beneath this piece, she also die cut a smaller yellow piece using the small circle die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes – Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. I really love how this combination gives a soften look!

The bottom portion of her card was beautifully inked in matching color to her blended sunray. She used a bright yellow border strip to define this portion to house a big scripty sentiment in bold black. This large happy birthday sentiment was also from our Words From The Heart (Chapter 2) stamp set.

Finally she used a few bright yellow sequins to give this card the perfect finishing touch!

Our Magical Fireworks Stencils 360°TM is super versatile as you can use both Barrels separately or together. In adjusting the turning intervals, allow you to create so many different looks. The possibilities are endless!

Thank you so much Bobbi for your uplifting inspiration!
