New Video: This Shaker Card Will Brighten Up Your Day!

Hi guys, Jo is back to share another one of her amazing shaker cards today! This card features the Stencils Stencils 360°TM Starter Kit and the Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°TM and The Orbit Stencils 360TM.

She took one of the 8″ Barrels from the Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°TM set and ink blended using a turning interval of 22.5° to create this bright yellow flower!

For the base of her shaker window, she blended a sphere using The Orbit Stencils 360°TM. I love how this image mimics the centre of a sunflower!

Using the smaller 4″ stencil from the Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°TM set, she inked a few smaller sized flowers on three corners of her slimline. This was easily done even without the 360° tool. I love the contrast of the bright yellow and green!

She used the scalloped and circle dies from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts for her shaker window.

The sentiment “You Are Amazing” is from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set.

This card is so full of positive energy! Watch her video tutorial below or over on your YouTube Channel!

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful evening.

Amazing Slimline Wreath by Bobbi!

Hi friends, Bobbi is back today with this gorgeous creation of hers, featuring our Stencils 360° Starter Kit  and the Scents of Fall Stencils 360°™.

Wow, I just love this elegant piece of art, full of fall vibes! Bobbi‘s slimline card measures 3-1/2″ wide X 8-1/2″ tall and it fits perfectly in a business-sized envelope.

First she cut out a panel of size 7″ wide X 8-1/2″ tall to do her ink blending on the Scents of Fall Stencils 360°™ to create this wreath. I love this idea since she can make a full wreath and have it appear on both the front and the back of the card – super clever!

The process of making this wreath was super simple, all you need to do is follow the markings on the new Stencils 360° and rotating the stencil at a 60° turning interval, ie. making references to every other circle on the scale! For the blending, she used Ranger Distressed Inks in Gathered Twigs (pinecones and stems), Milled Lavender (Leaves) and Rusty Hinge (pine branches).

I love the added shading on the pinecones, branches and berries with Copic coloring! It really elevates the look! More colors were added to the background using watercolor splatters in gold metallic and additional line designs wiht Copics.

The sentiment, “My deepest gratitude” from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set was heat embossed in white on a deep plum cardstock which really pops!

On the inside of the card she had two panels measuring 3-1/2″ wide X 8-1/2″ tall. These panels are adhered to cover any bleed from the Copic coloring.

On this panel, she stenciled a few pinecones and branches using Gathered Twigs with a touch of ink splatter in black which looks really beautiful! The phrase, “Heartfelt Thanks” was also from Heartfelt Notes.

To finish off her card she added a few metallic floral sequins for a little sparkle!

Thank you so much Bobbi for this magnificent creation!

A Simple & Colorful Encouragement Card by Ashley!

Hi everyone! Today we have Ashley back with us with a super colorful card to start the week off!

For her background, she used the Orbit Stencils 360°TM at a turning interval of 30° on the Stencils 360°TM, while ink blending with a variety of Distress Oxide inks including Festive Berries, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet.

She cut her panel using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays – Stand-Alone Die for the delicate border details. This stand-alone die is so simple and neat you could use it on any type of cards you’re making!

The stamped images are from one of our older stamp sets, Love Train which she colored with Copic makers, die cut, and adhered with foam tapes onto her background. What I love about this stamp set is that it not only is great for encouragement cards, but also for birthday cards, just-because & thinking of you cards!

The sentiment she chose is perfect for this card!

I hope you’re inspired to create an encouragement card to your loved one today! Anyone would be thrilled to receive a warm encouragement during these tough times!

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

It’s Never Too Early For a Christmas Card with Anja!

Hello! Today Anja has for us a gorgeous X’mas card featuring the new Sacred Lotus Stencils 360° TM.

Anja used a card panel of size 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and it was die cut using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays. She picked up Barrel 2 and ink blended Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink in the first round by making references to the outlined hearts on the Stencils 360°TM BASE. Then for her second round of inking, she blended Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide ink over the same Barrel 2 by making reference to the solid hearts.

Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°™

This alone, created a beautiful floral overlapping geometric pattern!

She then further applied applied Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Black Ash with a Nuvo Blending Sponge, over Barrel 1. This bold black really created a the perfect contrast!

The Merry X’mas stamp was from the Warmest Wishes stamp set. I love that she stamped it using the same Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide ink for the cohesive look. It was then die cut using a circular die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I love that she die cut another piece using matching cardstock on the scalloped die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts to go beneath the sentiment. This helps accentuates the foral pattern formed using the dark Embellishment Mousse!

The added snowflake embellishments made a fun finishing touch to her card!

Thank you so much Anja! Your card is spectacular!

New Videos Are Up On Our YouTube Channel!

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.

Then I grabbed the cute kitties from the My BFF stamp set, copic colored and die cut it. I also die-cut a piece using the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes coordinating dies and adhere that underneath my image.

The sentiment “I’m beyond grateful to have a friend like you” was from the Words From the Heart (Chapter 2) stamp set. This black shimmery card base is one of my favourites and it is called the Mysterious Galaxy – Medium Weight Premium Cardstock.

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!
