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!

Hi everyone! Ashley is back today to share another one of her beautiful creations! This time her card features the new Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°TM.

She first used Barrel 2 on her 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ canvas and started blending with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks. She then further blended an overlay with Barrel 1 using Picked Raspberry. This simple overlay already makes a great contrast!

I love how she used Barrel 3 on a separate 4″ square piece of paper and blended that using Antique Linen. She then fussy cut it and made it another layer for her card!

She stamped the sentiment “I am beyond Grateful” from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set, using the same Picked Raspberry ink to match!

She adhered the fussy cut piece onto her card with foam tape to give it a little dimension! I love the array of gems she added on each of the leaves! You can watch her video HERE for the step-by-step tutorial!

Since the launch of the Stencils 360°TM, we have received many comments asking us whether this tool can be used together with square stencils, aside from the circular stencils that we just launched! And today, I have the answer for you in my new video! Below is a card that I made, using our regular 6″ x 6″ Rain fo Hearts stencil combined with our new Stencils 360°TM!

Instead of using the Guide Ring and rotating a circular stencil for blending, I taped down my square stencil onto my 6″ Paper Positioner and then did some simple masking on my square stencil to get just the right portion I wanted for my card.

Using a 30° turning interval, I blended 3 different colors of Distress Oxide Inks on my canvas.

Then I grabbed the cute kitties from the My BFF stamp set, copic colored and die cut it. I also die-cut a piece using the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes coordinating dies and adhere that underneath my image.

The sentiment “I’m beyond grateful to have a friend like you” was from the Words From the Heart (Chapter 2) stamp set. This black shimmery card base is one of my favourites and it is called the Mysterious Galaxy – Medium Weight Premium Cardstock.

You can watch my YouTube video right HERE! Our new Stencils 360°TM is super versatile, not only you can use our circular line of stencils to create stunning designs in just minutes, you can even use your old stencils on this user-friendly tool! You will be surprised the amazing results that they give you!

We hope you enjoyed today’s inspriations! Thanks for stopping by!
