Hearts Bouquet Stencils 360°

Card Duos Featuring the Hearts Bouquet Stencils 360°

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!

Today I have for you a new video, featuring the new Hearts Bouquet stencil from our latest release!

This stencil is so much fun to play with. You can choose different rotations to create different looks for your cards. For today, I made a card duo using one 7 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ large canvas cut from the Essentials – Smooth Bright White 100lb. Heavy Weight Cardstock.

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.

After completing the artwork, I used the small dotted rectangle from the Cinematic Shadow Box dies, to cut my canvas into 2 cards. The heat embossed sentiments are from Heartfelt Notes. I used Navy Blazer and Vintage Beetle colored cardstock for my backing panels.

A Quick & Simple Valentine’s Day Themed Thank You Card with Jo!

Hello! We have a new video up on our YouTube Channel. Jo is sharing a simple yet adorable Valentine’s Day themed Thank You card using some of our older products.

First she used the largest die cut from our Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlay to cut out an A2 size card.

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.

She used the cute mermaid from the Get Well Soon stamp set. I love the way she colored the mermaid’s hair, so pretty! The scripty sentiment Heartfelt Thanks is from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set. She stamped it onto a pre-cut heart using the heart-shaped die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes – Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. This die set is super versatile as you can use it for all types of cards.

Finally she added some matching colors heart stickers to complete her card! Thank you Jo, this card is super adorable! Check out how she put this card together over on our YouTube channel!

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!

Jo’s Bee Happy Shaker Card Video!

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!

Thanks Jo! This is such a fun and happy creation!

A Shiny and CAS Creation with Ashely!

Hi guys! Ashley is back today with a clean and simple creation, using Deco Foil Transfer Gel with our Rain of Hearts stencil, and one of our earlier released stamp sets, Happy Track and Field (Chapter 2).

Ashley applied Deco Foil Transfer Gel to a white card base with the Rain of Hearts stencil and allowed it to dry. Once dried, rose gold foil was placed overtop and the paper + foil were sandwiched between some parchment paper before being run through a laminator.

These super cute cheerleaders were from the Happy Track and Field (Chapter 2) stamp and were stamped in black ink and coloured with Copic markers, then die cut using the coordinating dies.

Preview(opens in a new tab)

The word “Hooray” was die-cut, along with its shadow, in white and black paper respectively. Everything was adhered to the card panel, which was adhered onto a white card base.

Thanks Ashley for your CAS & adorable card!

Thanks for dropping by! Hope we’ve brightened up your Monday!
