We are celebrating this day with a Giveaway, and a group of talented artists will be joining me to bring you lots of inspirations featuring fabulous products from our Fall 2020 New Release!
Today’s hop starts right here on the PP blog! I’ve prepared for you two very different cards. The first one is created with the Floral Wreath Stencils 360°™.
Both of these cards were super easy to make. With the new Stencils 360°™, I did not have to apply any masking in order to blend different colors on the stencil, which saves me a lot of time! I hope you’re inspired by my projects, please hop along to the next stops for more wonderful inspirations!

This frosted zipper bag is the perfect storage solution for your Stencils 360°™! So take advantage of this awesome deal which will only last until 17 Sep 11:30pm PST!
Today we have 2 more stencils and 4 new stamp sets & coordinating dies to showcase so let’s jump right in! All of the stencils 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!
Some of the dies can be mix and matched for different images in the sets, as you can see from the images below.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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 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!

Hello and welcome back to Day 3 of our Reveal & Inspirational Chapter. Our new Fall Release is NOWAVAILABLE for Pre-Order at www.ppstamps.com! YAYYY!!!!! During this Pre-Order period, you will automatically receivea 16″ x 16″ FREE frosted zipper bag when you purchase our Stencils 360°™ Starter Kit! This frosted zipper bag is the perfect storage solution for your Stencils 360°™! So take advantage of this awesome deal which will only last until 17 Sep 11:30pm PST!
Today we have 3 more stencils and 2 stand-alone dies to showcase so let’s get to it! 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!
Pair them on a design or use them separately! This set creates a clean and simple look. It differs from the traditional sunray stencils as you can easily apply a combination of colors to the beams without having to do any masking! They are great for a variety of cards!
First we have our new team member Bobbi’s creation! Welcome to our Creative Team Bobbi! She chose Barrel 1 for her card, which creates ample space in the centre for lots of creativity!
She blended two shades of blue to get this gorgeous ray on the perimeter, creating a focal point in the centre where you’ll find our new stand-alone You Are My Inspiration Shadow Dies. I love the 3D visual effect she’d created here.
I just love the added bubbles and sequins that she added for the finished look, simply gorgeous!
Next we have a card that you may have seen during sneak peeks. I’ve used both Barrels for this card.
Here’s a quick clip on how I created this card. TIP: Sometimes the carved pattern on a 4″ stencil might be very close to the edge that you might find it easier to use just 2 small pieces of tape to secure your 4″ Guide Ring™ instead of using 4 (so that the tapes don’t get in your way of inking); or even not use any at all if that works for you, as I did in this video.
In the next example, I used a 6″ x 6″ canvas. I used a mixture of color palettes here to create a fun and vibrant look.
This stencil gives you great autumn vibes! First we have Ashley’s trio of cards!
She showcased perfectly how this stencil can look so different with different colors of cardstock. As per the alignment marker on the stencil, she rotated it using 60° turning intervals to complete the blended patterns.
On all of these cards, the entire stencilled panels were elevated from the card bases using a panel of foam, and the sentiments were elevated as well. This gives the cards the added dimension.
In the next example, I ink blended various colors of Versamark Chalk Ink on black cardstock using the Scents of Fall Stencils 360°™. I don’t use chalk ink much often but I really love how this turned out. For me, chalk ink works best on this stencil with a light dabbing motion.
This geometric pattern creates the best visual interest! I think this is an ideal background for some bright and bold designs. Perfect for all types of cards and even home decor!
In this first example, I used a wide turning interval of 60°. This creates a clean and less complex pattern, with just a little bit of overlap between the alternating colors. I used Shaded Lilac and Twisted Citron which is one of my favourite color palettes.
As you can see in the next example, I decreased the turning interval by half to 30°, while using 3 colors for blending. This makes the pattern much more complex and interesting, as there were more overlays.
I chose a sentiment from Heartfelt Notes, die cut it using on of the coordinating dies. Another piece was cut using the same die, but this time with kraft cardstock. I also rotated it by 30° before adhering that to the back of my stamped piece, to give it a little bit more texture to the card.
Finally I’d like to introduce to you our second stand-alone die in this release, it is called Never Lose Hope.
I showed a card yesterday where I used this die. Here’s a quick look at it again. In this one, I used both dies from the set.
In my final example below, the sentiment die from Never Lose Hope was used alone on some kraft cardstock, and I left the shadow out.
I blended Pine Needles, Wild Honey, Speckled Egg, and Gathered Twigs on the Scents of Fall Stencils 360°™. I used the same kraft cardstock for my cardbase.
That concludes our inspirations for today! I hope you enjoyed today’s intros. If you haven’t done so, head over to our Day 1 Intro and participate in our GIVEAWAY!
