First we have Jo’s card. I love how she used the Orbit Stencils 360°TM and blended at a turning interval of 45°, to create this fun background which resonates so well with the disco ball image from the Fun Night Out stamp set – super brilliant!
She created this fun scene with these adorable puppies from Fun Night Out. I love the little addition of the microphone from the Penguin Agenda stamp set, looks like these cuties are having a wonderful karaoke night!

All of these work in conjunction with our Stencils 360°™. If you missed our Day 1 Intro, click HERE to read more about out this innovative tool or watch our Intro Video HERE!
First up for today is the Magical Fireworks Stencils 360°™. This set is great for creating greeting cards for various occasions! It contains two 6″ barrels. Use them separately or together! They also coordinates with the Warmest Wishes stamp set (to be showcased later this week), greeting orbs in which fit perfectly into the centre space of this stencil design!
Ashley made for us a trio of cards! She demonstrated perfectly how the stencils can be used together OR separately. I love that she chose different colours of cardstock to get the different themes. In these cards, she used various colours of Distress Oxide inks for blending.
For the 1:1 card, a piece of 4 3/4″ by 4 3/4″ cardstock was used for the blending, and both Barrels of the stencil set were used. I love the pink heat embossed image in the middle which is from our new Warmest Wishes stamp set.
For the tan-coloured card, a 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″ panel of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock was used for the blending. She only used Barrel 2 of the stencil set this time and she chose a turning interval of 45°. This gives the card a nice clean composition. I love the gold shimmer on the kraft cardstock.
For the navy card below, a 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″ panel of navy cardstock was used. This time she only took Barrel 1 and followed the recommended turning interval of 15° for blending. I love the gold ink she used for her stamped image. The sparkly embellishments finish off the card to perfection!
In the next example, I wanted to make a card that is full of colors and energy! I used both Barrels from this set.
I used a turning intervals of 22.5° with Barrel 1, and 30° with Barrel 2. These patterns form a fantastic overlay effect which I really like! The centre stamped image is from our new Warmest Wishes stamp set. This image fits perfectly in the centre space. I really love how this stencil mimics beautiful fireworks and hence where it got its name!
Next up is the Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°™. This set of stencils is the first of our Multi-Barrel™ series. This set comes in 3 pieces, comprising of two 8″ stencils and a 4″ stencil.
If you like floral designs, you will sure enjoy playing with this set! This set is super versatile as you can mix n’ match the barrels to get totally different looks!
First we have Anja’s pair of creations. She used Neenah Desert Storm cardstock for blending on both of her cards. Using Barrel 1, she chose a turning interval of 22.5° and ink blended alternating colors with Milled Lavender and Dusted Concord Distress Oxide Ink.
Then with Barrel 2, she blended alternating colors with Shaded Lilac and Dusted Concord Distress Oxide Ink, also with a turning interval of 22.5°. Finally, she ink blended Shaded Lilac on Barrel 3, again with the same turning interval.
I love her idea of cutting her card into 2 pieces to make 2 slimline cards – how clever! She used sentiments “Thinking of You” from Warmest Wishes and “Stay Strong” from Heartfelt Notes. I just love the bold white heat embossed letters.
For the last example featuring the Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°™, I combined Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade on Barrel 1. I then used Shaded Lilac on Barrel 2, and Spun Sugar Barrel 3. I chose a turning interval of 22.5° for the whole of my blending process.
I thought this heart warming sentiment from Heartfelt Notes is a perfect match to this feminine card.
First we have Jo’s card. I just love how bright and vibrant this card is! She followed the alignment marker on this stencil and used a turning interval of 15°. I love how she used the bright yellow to create a beautiful ray of sunshine giving the card so much energy! The cyan blending at the back of this also pops up nicely!
For this next card, I used a turning interval of 15°, ie. inking by making references to the ‘square’ symbols on The Base™. I chose a combination of 4 colors, and added an image from Warmest Wishes. Even though the blended shapes are spaced so closed together, not once did I need to do any masking for the multi-color blending. And it took me very little time to complete this card. I really love how it turned out.
On my next card will show you how the one stencil can offer different looks. I did a portrait orientation for this card instead of going 1:1. For this card, I increased the turning interval to 22.5° instead of using the recommended 15°. By doing this, I am actually making the geometric pattern less condensed.
I combined Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade, and completed just 2 rounds of inking by first making reference to the solid hearts with one color, and then to the hollow ones with the other color. Super simple to do! I then added a shadow die cut “Never Lose Hope“, a stand-alone die which we will showcase a little later this week. Finally I used matching-color enamel dots to finish off this card.
That concludes our inspirations for today! I think you’ll agree that simple stencils make wonders! If you haven’t done so, head over to our Day 1 Intro and participate in our GIVEAWAY!

Hello there! Time flies, today is our last day of Sneak Peeks! I’m super excited that tomorrow we will be starting the Full Reveal and Inspirational Chapter for our Fall 2020 Release and it is something to celebrate for!
I made a bright and vibrant card for today. The colorful graphics on this card were ink blended using our new tool along with a set of two stencils (we’ll be revealing our new tool tomorrow!) These products combined to give this gorgeous pattern overlays that mimics fireworks in the sky!
The stencils that I’ve used here are super versatile. You can use them separately, or in many different ways to create different patterns and hence totally different designs.
The 3D image was from the same stamp set which I showed a glimpse of earlier on Sneak Peek Day 4. This image coordinates and fits perfectly in the middle of the graphics.
I hope this card will inspire you to make something bold and beautiful!
Be sure to come back tomorrow for our Reveal and Inspirational Chapter. Starting tomorrow, we will showcase our new products with Intro Videos, Design Team samples, and of course, Giveaways!
