Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Today we have Mimi’s special Valentine’s Day inspiration that will for sure melt your heart!
First she used the Gazania Stencils 360° to create this dreamy floral background. She used Barrel B from this stencil set and rotated it at 22.5 degree turning intervals (referencing the heart symbols), while alternating between two hues of pink, namely Kitsch Flamingo and Milled Lavender Distress Oxide inks.
She further layered Barrel C on top for the added dimension, again with the same turning interval, but this time blending with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide.
She then colored and die cut a super adorable little girl from Most Wonderful Time stamp set. I like how she also gave her a cute love banner (from the Inseparable stamp set)!
She also die cut some hearts from Inseparable and scatter them over the card. Then using the negative die-cut of this heart, she ink blend even more hearts onto her card with matching ink colors, Kitsch Flamingo and Pickled Raspberry Distress Oxides.
To finish off, she added a sentiment from Birthday Wishes and applied some Diamond Stickles & more sparkly embellishments!
Thank you so much Mimi for sharing this sweet inspiration!
Hello crafty friends! Before we get into today’s cards, I’d like to announce that our very first Penguin Palace Challenge will be happening TOMORROW! We’re launching a brand new Blog in which all of our future Challenges will be hosted. Play along in this challenge for a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate! Stay tuned for more details!
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.
I love the color palette on this card which I think really matches the mermaid and Valentine’s Day theme. She blended Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Inks onto the Rain of Hearts stencil.
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.
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!
Hi crafty friends. Jo is back to share another beautiful interactive card for us today! Check out her video below or click HERE to watch it over on our YouTube Channel!
This card is so vibrant and bright! I love how the shaker card window shows a bunch of pink hearts as the background, created using the Rain of Hearts stencil.
Most of the images on this card were from the Bee Happy stamp set.
The cute little bow on the lady bee was from the Sweetest Truck stamp set. I love that she stamped out the swirly trail image multiple times on the white background to form a cool pattern. She also added some boarder details to her card using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlays stand alone die.
I really love the big red heart frame die cut which is a gorgeous accent making the shaker window the focal point of her card!
