A Cool Galaxy Themed Shaker Card with Jo!

Hi crafty friends! Jo is back to share a fun galaxy themed shaker card with us today!

She first blended her background using Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Inks. She then splattered a touch of metallic paint to give it the shimmery look.

Then with our Stencils 360°TM, she blended Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink on The Orbit Stencils 360°TM, with a turning interval of 45°. I love the look of the array of dark planets, super cool!

This white heat embossed fun scripty sentiment from the Words From the Heart (Chapter 1) stamp set is the perfect match for this card! She die cut the middle portion of the card using the hexagon die from the coordinating die set and created the shaker window.

The the accessory images on here came from the My BFF stamp set and the Lucky Break stamp set. This little boy jumping in joy is super cute!

Thanks Jo for your super adorable inspiration!

Create a Modern Look for Your Thank You Cards – with Bobbi!

Hi everyone, today Bobbi is back to share a duo of cards that are just simply amazing! She used eye-catching color combinations that give a modern and chic look!

On this first card, she used the hexagon die from the the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes die set in the colors of gold, pink, a muted aqua and black. This color combination is so special and I love all the contrasts that they give!

She die cut all the stitched hexagons and adhered them to an A7 card base. I love the stitched detailing on these hexagons!

Inside the card, she used the Orbit Stencils 360°TM  to create the interior panel. I just love how the colors coordinate with those at the front! She left some space in the middle where a note of thanks can be written across.

To complete this look, she stamped and cut the “Forever Grateful” sentiment from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set and attached it using a piece of narrow foam tape for the added dimension. I just love the elegant look on this card!

Her second card also measures 5″ X 7″, but this one has a more masculine feel due to the color choices. She used the stitched square die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes die set with a mixture of rust, earthy blue, a warm gray, a light aqua cardstock. I love that she added a light warm gray splattered with black watercolor.

I also love the white heat embossed sentiment on the darker color square in the lower centre which really pops! This sentiment “I’m Beyond Grateful” is from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set.

Inside the card, she used the Magical Fireworks Stencils 360°TM to create a coordinating look using the colors from the front. I love the clean and simple look of this!

This card would be an ideal gift for anyone! The sharp colors, stitched details and the bold and modern look are what make this card looking spectacular!

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspirations. Thanks for stopping by!

Create 4 Mini-Projects with One Large Canvas!

Hi guys! Today I have a new video up on our YouTube Channel, showing how you can use a single large canvas, to create 4 different projects!

These four projects were created using our Stencils 360°TM combined with the Sacred Lotus Stencil and the Mega Summer Blossom Stencil.

Blending multi-colors on a single stencil has never been easier! These bold patterns were created without the need for masking and in just a matter of minutes!

Why not experiment with what you can do with one large canvas instead of working with just the standard size cards? The possibilities are endless!

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!
