An Adorable Encouragement Card with Candice!

Hello everyone! Time certainly flies and tomorrow is the Lunar New Year! I’d like to wish everyone a healthy and prosperous year of the Tiger!

I have a very cute card to share today so let’s dive right in!

Candice created a beautiful background using the Sending Hugs & Kisses Stencils 360° with dye ink colors inspired by this month’s Penguin Palace Challenge

This Sending Hugs & Kisses Stencils 360° creates gorgeous backgrounds in very little time and it’s a great alternative to patterned paper!

She stamped the hugging kitties image from My BFF onto a heart and colored them using Copic markers.

I love how she die cut two hearts and placed them behind the kitties to create a focal point!

She also white heat embossed the sentiment and added some embellishments to finish off the card.

New Video – Mass Producing With Your Stencils 360°

Hi everyone. Today I have a new video up on our YouTube Channel in which I’ll be showing you how to mass produce birthday cards using the Stencils 360°TM.

Using our tool to create geometric backgrounds cannot be any easier! This time, I made a bunch of birthday cards using the Summer Blossom Stencils 360°TM.

The scripty sentiment on these cards are from the Words from the Heart (Chapter 2) stamp set.

In this video, I’ll be showing you TIPS on how to make your cards extra special by applying easy but useful techniques.

Running low on your birthday cards stash? I hope you’ll get some inspiration from my video on how to replenish them! While you do that, don’t forget to join our Challenge #2 over on our Challenge blog for a chance to win $25 Gift Certificate to our shop!

3 steps to create a quick and simple card

New Video – 3 Simple Steps to Create the Perfect Encouragement Card

Hello Crafty Friends! Hope you had a good weekend. Today I have a new video up on our YouTube Channel. In this video, I outlined 3 Simple Steps that I often use to create a quick and simple card.

My card panels were cut out using dies from the Cross Stitched and Dots Large Rectangle Overlays and the Cross Stitched and Dots Small Rectangle Overlays.

First I created my background using the Hello Sunshine Stencils 360°TM combined with the Stencils 360°TM tool. I used Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Shaded Lilac for my ink blending. You’ll notice that instead of sticking to one side of my stencil, I flipped my stencil to the other side for inking as well. I really like the added depth that this little trick creates.

Then I took a large sentiment from the Words From the Heart (Chapter 1) stamp set and silver heat embossed it to my card. And finally, I added gems along the inner diameter of the circular patterns for some extra sparkle!

Check out my video over on our YouTube Channel for my detailed tutorial.

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

A Stylish Floral Card with Ashley!

Hi friends, we’re back today with Ashley’s gorgeous card.

I just love the overlays on this card! Ashley used the Summer Blossom stencil on a piece of white cardstock.

With the Stencils 360°TM tool, she blended Distress Oxide inks on the Summer Blossom Stencil using Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistachio, and Squeezed Lemonade, at a rotation angle of 22.5 degrees. Sounds difficult? Not all all, just jump from one Heart symbol to another, and it’s super easy to do and takes very little time!

The “Thank You” sentiment from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set was stamped directly in the middle of the panel using Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink. This stamp is designed to fit perfectly in the middle of this Summer Blossom Design!

Her card was cut using the largest Dots-Meets-Dashes rectangle die which gives her this standard A2 size card with the lovely border detailing. The color combination on this card is just stunning!

Thank you so much for your beautiful inspiration Ashley!
