Now let’s get to the rest of the “Around The World” collection of stamps! First we have Enchanting Paris! The French capital is one of the most romantic cities in Europe! Let this stamp set be your inspiration for building a romantic scene! The adorable poodle and the landmarks are just irresistible!

Sidewalk Scene Builder Penguin Perfect Cuts

How adorable is Gladys’s soft-toned slimline card! I love her color choices for the scene, it’s so dreamy! To set the scene, she used the Sidewalk Scene builder Penguin Perfect Cuts for the lower portion of the card. This die cut is really handy for creating street scenes and is a must-have in your craft room! The stamped images were nicely laid out across the panel that was die cut from the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab stand-alone die. Notice the little cut-out details that the garden bench die cut give? She finished off her card with a sweet sentiment!

Ashley created a romantic snowy scene birthday card with this set. She also used the Sidewalk Scene builder Penguin Perfect Cuts to set the scene. I love how she ink-blended it slightly at the bottom with Distress Oxide ink in Tea Dye and that she added a strip of bright green cardstock above it for the pop of color! I’m loving the snowy background! Her images were all arranged onto a slimline card base (3.5×8.5 inches) die cut from the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab stand-alone die. To finish off, she scattered some sequins for the extra sparkle!

Next on our list is the Beautiful Africa set! If you love creating with critters you’re going to fall in love with this set as it’s got some of the cutest animals!

Stephanie has created this fun scene of the safari! The wavy slope was die cut from Desert Landscape Scene builder and splattered with Distress Ink in Ground Espresso. I love the sentiment in this set “Time to soak up the sun” which is super versatile! I love how she gave the little girl and the lion matching color outfits which even coordinate with the color of the jeep! It’s like a little team of safari explorers! And how adorable are the giraffe and the elephant!

Candice used a simple masking technique where she cut a circle from a piece of copy paper and taped it down to her card panel. Next, she used the stamps from the Beautiful Africa set to build her scene directly on the panel for a one-layer card! I love the way she overlaid the images one by one to create depths, so beautifully done!! After stamping out her scene she colored them all with Copics. I just love the colorful scene which really pops over the white background!

Finally I’d like to introduce the Aloha Hawaii stamps set & coordinating dies! This set has some of the cutest images ever! You can create so many different scenes with this set!

Allison made a bright portrait slimline. She cut out her beige panel using the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab die. She also cut out three frames using the Polaroid die cut from the Twist-N-Pop stand-alone die to house her fun images! What a clever way to use this die! Her card is so bright & colorful and full of positive energy!

The two sets above shares the same coordinating dies set, Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes – Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes – Coordinating Dies

Some of the dies can be mix and matched for different images in the sets, as you can see from the images below.

Words From The Heart (Chapter 1) 6″x8″ Clear Stamp Set
Words From The Heart (Chapter 2) 6″x8″ Clear Stamp Set

The other 2 stamp sets Words From The Heart (Chapters 1 & 2) also shares a set of coordinating dies, as shown below. Read on to see how some of these images and dies were used in our projects!

Words From The Heart (Chapters 1 & 2) – Coordinating Dies

Here’s an example Bobbi made featuring one of the image from Heartfelt Notes. She used both Barrels from the Hello Sunshine Stencils 360°™ for this card.

I love the contrasting look between the outer ring of sunrays and the inner ring. These colors give a super warm and energetic vibes. I just love the bright and vibrant look.

The different sizes of die cut circles she used to decorate her card compliment the overall geometric pattern. Loving the white detailing she added.

One of the stencils that we want to showcase today is The Orbit Stencils 360°™. With this 8″ stencil, it is super easy to create 3-Dimensional graphics in minutes! You can easily mix and match sentiments and coordinating geometrical die cuts to achieve some interesting designs!

The Orbit Stencils 360°™

Since there is a “star” symbol as the alignment marker on this stencil, you can definitely try using different turning intervals for blending, in order to get different looks for your projects.

Let’s take a look at Anja’s card. She first cut an A2 panel using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays – Stand-Alone Die.

She used a combination of Faded Jeans, Blueprint Sketch and Speckled Egg Distress Oxide Ink on her stencil with a turning interval of 30°. The heat embossed sentiment is from Words From the Heart (Chapter 1). Loving the soft blue palette!

For my card below, I also used a turning interval of 30°. I chose 3 colors for my card namely Hickory Smoke, Twisted Citron, and Wilted Violet. As you may have noticed, I was going light-handed on this as I wanted to achieve a less opaque and more of a transparent look for my spheres.

I used the heart-shaped stamp from Heartfelt Notes and die cut it using the coordinating dies for both the Heartfelt Notes and Warmest Wishes. Then I used our The Sandstone Series – Smokey Eyes – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock as the card base, since I find that color goes very well with the Hickory Smoke ink.

For the next card, I combined Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxides. Unlike the above, I decreased the turning interval to 22.5°, making the pattern a little fuller with more layering.

I used a 1:1 format so that I can keep all of the graphics. The sentiment here is from Heartfelt Notes, and I die cut it using the hexagon coordinating die and adhered that with foam tape onto my blended card.

Finally, the last product to showcase in this release is the Botanical Garden Stencils 360°™.

Botanical Garden Stencils 360°™

Jo made a Thanksgiving card that is full of autumn vibes. As you can see, the alignment marker on this stencil is a ‘pair’ of circles. Therefore in order to achieve the stencil’s intended design, you will need to rotate the stencil using a turning interval of 60° (as compared to a ‘single’ circle which represents a 30° interval).

I love the Fall tone that she created here. She chose “Happy Thanksgiving” from Warmest Wishes, and die cut it using the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes – Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I love embellishments that she added, so beautiful.

For my final card, I chose a smaller canvas, namely a 4 3/4” x 4 3/4” cardstock. In the past, blending multi-colors on a stencil design like this would require lots and lots of masking, but not anymore! Our Stencils 360°™ makes this colorful floral pattern super easy to create.

The image here in the centre is from Heartfelt Notes, I stamped the image using Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide.

And that concludes our Fall 2020 Reveal and Inspiration Chapter!! I hope you had fun as much as we did. My goal for this release is to bring to the crafting community something unique and different. I really hope we’ve done that. If you like what you see, please help spread the word!
