She used a bunch of cardstock scraps cut in different widths to create this eye catching rainbow hue background. I love how she kept her 2-tier cake mostly white which makes it really pops from the background.
The yellow polka dots were made using a tiny hole puncher. The sentiment was from our Bond With Nature Canada stamp set which she white heat embossed onto the icing piece.
This card is clean and simple, yet so vibrant and charming. Thank you so much for sharing this with us Stephanie!

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!
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!
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.
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!
First we have Ashley’s dual of cards. I love the wide range of colors that she’s used on both!
Combined with our Stencils 360°TM, Ashley used only the Barrel 1 of the Magical Fireworks stencil set and blended Distress Oxide Inks in rainbow hues onto her cardstock. On both cards, a turning intervals of 15° were used.
First on her landscape format card, the bold letters die cut You Are My Inspiration was used on a glimmery black cardstock, and adhered onto the shadow cut in pearlescent vellum. The entire sentiment was adhered using small foam squares onto her inked panel, which was glued onto a black card base.
I really love the black & white contrast, plus the rainbow hue really pops!
She chose a 1:1 ratio for her second card. As you can see, she skipped a few rotations to leave a blank white space intentionally, giving room for the scripty sentiment in the centre. She chose “You are amazing” from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set.
She added a few rainbow gems which finished off her card perfectly!
Next, we have Jo’s burst of color shaker card! Jo used both Barrels from the stencil set for her design. But this time, she chose turning intervals of 45° for inking on both of the Barrels.
As compared to the previous two cards by Ashley, you can see that a smaller turning interval makes the pattern more dense and vice versa! You can see how simple it is to achieve different designs from a single stencil! And the best thing is that there is no masking needed for doing multi-colored designs!
Thanks ladies for your wonderful creations! Your cards are absolutely gorgeous!
