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.
Hi crafty friends! It’s already Day 5 of Sneak Peeks! I love geometric patterns. For today, I made a clean and simple card with a rainbow hue geometric background.
To make this stenciled background, I used the new Hearts Bouquet Stencil 360°TM with our Stencils 360°TM tool. You’ll be amazed on how easy it is to create this overlay of hearts in rainbow hues! While inking, I made references to the “15° intervals” scale on the Base of the tool, basically jumping from Square to Square!
I had a total of 8 colors that I wanted to used and these colors repeat themselves twice in this pattern. To avoid having to clean my stencil on every 15° turn before changing ink color, I inked up all 3 of the same colored hearts, clean my stencil, and moved on to my next color.
Here’s a short video on how I made this card. You can watch it below or over on our YouTube Channel.
This card is super fun and easy to make, I hope you’ll try it out! Be sure to come back tomorrow for our Sneak Peeks wrap up! Reveal & Inspiration Chapter + Giveaways starts next Monday. And get ready to Pre-Order period which starts next Monday as well! Stay tuned for the reveal of the Free Gift with purchases 80CAD+ (or ~65USD+)!
Hi crafty friends! Jo is back to share a fun galaxy themed shaker card with us today!
She first blended her background using Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Inks. She then splattered a touch of metallic paint to give it the shimmery look.
This white heat embossed fun scripty sentiment from the Words From the Heart (Chapter 1) stamp set is the perfect match for this card! She die cut the middle portion of the card using the hexagon die from the coordinating die set and created the shaker window.
The the accessory images on here came from the My BFF stamp set and the Lucky Break stamp set. This little boy jumping in joy is super cute!
Hi everyone, today Bobbi is back to share a duo of cards that are just simply amazing! She used eye-catching color combinations that give a modern and chic look!
On this first card, she used the hexagon die from the the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes die set in the colors of gold, pink, a muted aqua and black. This color combination is so special and I love all the contrasts that they give!
She die cut all the stitched hexagons and adhered them to an A7 card base. I love the stitched detailing on these hexagons!
Inside the card, she used the Orbit Stencils 360°TM to create the interior panel. I just love how the colors coordinate with those at the front! She left some space in the middle where a note of thanks can be written across.
To complete this look, she stamped and cut the “Forever Grateful” sentiment from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set and attached it using a piece of narrow foam tape for the added dimension. I just love the elegant look on this card!
Her second card also measures 5″ X 7″, but this one has a more masculine feel due to the color choices. She used the stitched square die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes die set with a mixture of rust, earthy blue, a warm gray, a light aqua cardstock. I love that she added a light warm gray splattered with black watercolor.
I also love the white heat embossed sentiment on the darker color square in the lower centre which really pops! This sentiment “I’m Beyond Grateful” is from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set.
Inside the card, she used the Magical Fireworks Stencils 360°TM to create a coordinating look using the colors from the front. I love the clean and simple look of this!
This card would be an ideal gift for anyone! The sharp colors, stitched details and the bold and modern look are what make this card looking spectacular!
I hope you enjoyed today’s inspirations. Thanks for stopping by!
