New Video: This Shaker Card Will Brighten Up Your Day!

Hi guys, Jo is back to share another one of her amazing shaker cards today! This card features the Stencils Stencils 360°TM Starter Kit and the Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°TM and The Orbit Stencils 360TM.

She took one of the 8″ Barrels from the Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°TM set and ink blended using a turning interval of 22.5° to create this bright yellow flower!

For the base of her shaker window, she blended a sphere using The Orbit Stencils 360°TM. I love how this image mimics the centre of a sunflower!

Using the smaller 4″ stencil from the Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°TM set, she inked a few smaller sized flowers on three corners of her slimline. This was easily done even without the 360° tool. I love the contrast of the bright yellow and green!

She used the scalloped and circle dies from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts for her shaker window.

The sentiment “You Are Amazing” is from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set.

This card is so full of positive energy! Watch her video tutorial below or over on your YouTube Channel!

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful evening.

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!

Visit our blog this week for some fun and awesome projects from myself and our talented Creative Team. Today we have 3 more stencils 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!

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. 

Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°™

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.

In the next card, I blended Wilter Violet, Lucky Clover and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks on our Essentials – Smooth Bright White 100lb. Heavy Weight Cardstock. I wanted to create a landscape format card, and so I only kept half of my design.

I used some scrap papers, Splendorlux Argento – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock, & The Sandstone Series – Lavender Field – Premium Fine Paper to make a thick double border definition in between my stamped sentiment “My Deepest Gratitude” and the graphics. This bold sans-serif typeface is also from our new Heartfelt Notes stamp set.

On the inside of the card, I chose a scripty sentiment from our Words From the Heart (Chapter 2) stamp set.

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.

The final stencil we want to showcase today is the Origami Shuriken Stencils 360°™.

Origami Shuriken Stencils 360°™

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!

Then she chose the sentiment “Hello Sunshine” from Words From The Heart (Chapter 2) stamp set and die cut it using its coordinating dies. She also stamped and colored some cute images from Summer Sunshine to complete her card! What a flawless combination – love it!

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.

For today’s final card I ink blended Wilted Violet and Spun Sugar. I thought our Sandstone Series – Precious Gem – Premium Fine Paper card base is a great addition to this color palette.

The centre stamped image is from the new Words From The Heart (Chapter 1) stamp set. I die cut this using the coordinating dies and adhered that with foam tape to finish off this clean and simple card.
