New Video – Mass Producing With Your Stencils 360°

Hi everyone. Today I have a new video up on our YouTube Channel in which I’ll be showing you how to mass produce birthday cards using the Stencils 360°TM.

Using our tool to create geometric backgrounds cannot be any easier! This time, I made a bunch of birthday cards using the Summer Blossom Stencils 360°TM.

The scripty sentiment on these cards are from the Words from the Heart (Chapter 2) stamp set.

In this video, I’ll be showing you TIPS on how to make your cards extra special by applying easy but useful techniques.

Running low on your birthday cards stash? I hope you’ll get some inspiration from my video on how to replenish them! While you do that, don’t forget to join our Challenge #2 over on our Challenge blog for a chance to win $25 Gift Certificate to our shop!

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.

Spring 2021 Sneak Peek - Day 5

Spring 2021 New Release – Sneak Peek Day 5

Spring 2021 New Release Schedule

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.

To give some border detail to the card, I used the largest dies from Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays and the Dots Meet Dashes Small Rectangles Overlays to cut out a frame with our new Pumpkin Field cardstock. Then I added an image and sentiment from our new stamp set, Aloha Hawaii. I thought this image really goes well with the burst of colors in the background!

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+)!

Happy crafting everyone!

A Cool Galaxy Themed Shaker Card with Jo!

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.

Then with our Stencils 360°TM, she blended Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink on The Orbit Stencils 360°TM, with a turning interval of 45°. I love the look of the array of dark planets, super cool!

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!

Watch her video tutorial below or over on our YouTube Channel!

Thanks Jo for your super adorable inspiration!

Create a Modern Look for Your Thank You Cards – with Bobbi!

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!
