Gladys used one of the dies from Cinematic Shadow Box to die cut her panel. I love the gorgeous background which was blended using a combination of Distress Oxide Inks including Blueprint Sketch, Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick and Scattered Straw.
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!
She created two mini-scenes on each of the rectangle die cut panels by stamping, masking, some of the adorable critters from the My BFF stamp set. She ink blended the background using Squeezed Lemonade, Kitsch Flamingo, and Milled Lavender Distress Oxide Inks, and then removed the masks to add some copic coloring.
She ink blended the side decorative panels with the same distress oxide inks. These colors match perfectly to this month’s Color Palette Inspiration for our Monthly Challenge!
To finish off, she added two tabs with sentiments from the My BFF stamp set. I love the white highlights she added to the stamped images to make them pop! The coolest thing is that this pop-up card folds flat and fits into a 6 x 6″ envelope for mailing!
Thank you so much for this super delightful inspiration Candice!

I used a turning interval of 30° for my design. For my first round of inking, I used Speckled Egg on the irregular shaped cluster of hearts and Tattered Rose on the big outlined heart while jumping from one solid circle to the next. Then I used Blueprint Sketch on my second next round of inking while jumping from one outlined circle to the next.

Today we have 4 new stencils to introduce to you for the Stencils 360°TM tool! A lot of you have been telling me that you’ve been enjoying this new tool which is so exciting for me! To be able to create something that is revolutionary for the crafting community is so full of joy and your comments mean the world to me, and I am grateful for your support!
Candice made a duo of cards with similar configuration. On both cards, she kept to a turning interval of 60 degrees. I love how she used Candied Apple Distress Ink towards the center of the stencil and switched to carved pumpkin towards the outside to get that ombre look! The cute volcano and sentiment are from the Aloha Hawaii stamp set.
For her second card, she blended from the center, worked her way towards the edges using mermaid lagoon, salty ocean, and tumbled glass Distress inks. The adorable elephant and sentiment are from the Beautiful Africa stamp set.
For my card above, I used only half of the stencil design, isolating the other half; while changing the turning interval to 30 degrees instead of using the design-recommended 60 degrees! This creates a totally different design! Watch my step-by-step video or over on our YouTube channel.
Next we have the Hearts Bouquet Stencils 360°TM. As you can see, this stencil design has two parts to it. An array of floating hearts in different sizes, and a clean outlined heart. You can use them together, or separately, to achieve very different looks! Not to mention the endless possibilities that you get when varying the angle of rotations, or mixing it with other stencil designs!
Candice created her design with the idea of a mini postcard from the “City of Love” (Paris)! How romantic! She chose a 15 degree turning interval (jumping from Square to Square) using Distress Inks in Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick. To emphasis the “City of Love”, she trimmed down a piece of cardstock that she cut from the Sidewalk Scene Builder die and framed it with the polaroid die from the Twist-N-Pop Surprise set!
For my card above, I only inked the outlined heart portion of the stencil. You can see clearly this is such a different look to Stephanie’s card. I chose a rainbow hue palette and a 15 degrees turning interval to ink my stencil. Click HERE for a fun time lapse clip!
Allison made a pair of stunning floral backgrounds using this Spring Blooms Stencils 360°TM. For the card below, she used a 6 x 6″ canvas using the recommended turning interval of 60 degrees. I love how she cut the canvas in half to make a mini slimline card! To finish off, she also used the stencil in freestyle to fill in with more leaves and dots. The scripty stamp was from the stamp set Congratulations.
For her second card, Allison went about a little different. She first cut out a piece of cardstock with the rectangular die from the Cinematic Shadow Box die set. I love the gorgeous shade of pink! She then placed that panel on the left half of what would normally be a full sheet of 6×6″ paper. She then explored and played with the rotations of the big roses and leaves to fill her card! She also handpicked a few of the elements and added them in! I am loving all the clear and gold heat embossing on this card! The sentiments are from the stamp set Congratulations.
Our final inspiration for today is from Gladys! I really love the pastel palette she went for on this card! She wanted her card to have more of the big roses, so instead of following the suggested angle of rotation 60 degrees, she went with 30 degrees! The sentiments are from the Bond with Nature Canada and Enchanting Paris.
