First we have Jo’s card. I love how she used the Orbit Stencils 360°TM and blended at a turning interval of 45°, to create this fun background which resonates so well with the disco ball image from the Fun Night Out stamp set – super brilliant!
She created this fun scene with these adorable puppies from Fun Night Out. I love the little addition of the microphone from the Penguin Agenda stamp set, looks like these cuties are having a wonderful karaoke night!
Hello! Happy New Year everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve posted here on the PP blog! I miss you all so much! I’ve been busy getting all of the pre-orders on the Stencils 360°™ shipped out, and I’m so happy that I get to share the joy of crafting with this new tool together with you!
Ashley chose a panel of light blue cardstock cut with the second-largest Dots-Meets-Dashes rectangle stand-alone die set. Combining the Stencils 360°TM and the Waterspout circular stencil, she ink blended light blue ink and white pigment ink in alternating sequence to create this wonderful underwater background!
I just love the tone-on-tone effect and how this pattern mimics the bubbles under water surrounding all these cute images!
She stamped and coloured some images from the The More We Get Together stamp set and arranged them onto the card panel, adhering them with liquid glue or foam squares to give it more dimension. She used the sentiment “You have my seal of approval” which coordinates with the adorable seal image.
Then I added two sentiments from the same stamp set. I stamped “Season’s Greetings” using Simon Hurley’s dye ink Remember Me, and “Happy Holidays” in Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Ink. I thought these colors went well with the backgrounds.
To complete the tags, I used some matching colors trimming and added some sparkly gems!
Ashley chose the largest size Paper Positioner and used a 7 1/2″ piece of white cardstock as her canvas. To begin, she blended alternating colours of Distress Oxide inks in Speckled Egg, and Chipped Sapphire on just one of the stencil (Barrel 2) from the Sacred Lotus Stencil set, jumping from one heart symbol to another (ie. turning her stencil at 22.5° at each rotation); while leaving one out of every four rotations blank to later position her heat embossed petals.
After she’s done all her ink blending, she used Versamark ink and added silver embossing powder on the remaining petals. I just love the shimmery look with the heat embossing!
She then added a metallic silver string to make the sentiment look like a hanging ornament which is perfect since this image was designed three dimensionally as if the sentiment was engraved on a sphere!
For the sparkly touch, she added teal, white and aqua sequins, and teal dots using Glass Effects Gel in a teal color.
Mass producing X’mas cards is sure made super simple with this stencil!
Thank you Bobbi! Your card is so bright and beautiful!
