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!

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!

Cuteness Overload!!

Hello! I just had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with my family here in Canada and I’m super grateful. To start this week off, I have two super cute cards from our Creative Team!

First up we have Ashley’s Happy Birthday card!

Oh boy, this card is so full of positive energy!! I love how Ashley made this colorful background using the Waterspout Stencils 360TM. Good news is that this stencil already comes in the Stencils 360TM Starter Kit!

Ashley cut her card panel with the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlays for some added border detailing.

Using the Waterspout Stencils 360TM, she chose a turning interval of 30° and blended a variety of rainbow colors for her background using Distress Oxide inks (Festive Berries, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet). She chose a pair of adorable puppies from Fun Night Out for her focal images, along with some accessory images and coloured them in Copic Markers.

To finish off, she added some gems to give it the extra sparkly look! Such a fun and happy card!

Next we have Bobbi’s slimline creation. Her card measures 3-1/2″ wide X 8-1/2″ tall, and she paired the Never Lose Hope Shadow Dies with the Happy Track and Field (Chapter 1) stamp and coordinating die sets.

I just love the composition of this card! She used the trio of fans in the centre and added the Never Lose Hope shadow die as her bold sentiment. I love how she gave each fan the extra colorful flag to wave! Super cute!

She stamped the leaping frog head, cut that out using the heart shape part of the shadow phrase die and added it to the heart in the word “HOPE”. This resonates with the frog leaping on top!

Additional windy swirls were added using a Uni-ball Pen Signo white gel Pen to complete her card.  The sentiment “Take a Leap of Faith” adds the perfect finishing touch.

Thank you so much Ashley and Bobbi for your amazing creations!

It’s Never Too Early For a Christmas Card with Anja!

Hello! Today Anja has for us a gorgeous X’mas card featuring the new Sacred Lotus Stencils 360° TM.

Anja used a card panel of size 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and it was die cut using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays. She picked up Barrel 2 and ink blended Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink in the first round by making references to the outlined hearts on the Stencils 360°TM BASE. Then for her second round of inking, she blended Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide ink over the same Barrel 2 by making reference to the solid hearts.

Sacred Lotus Stencils 360°™

This alone, created a beautiful floral overlapping geometric pattern!

She then further applied applied Nuvo Embellishment Mousse Black Ash with a Nuvo Blending Sponge, over Barrel 1. This bold black really created a the perfect contrast!

The Merry X’mas stamp was from the Warmest Wishes stamp set. I love that she stamped it using the same Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide ink for the cohesive look. It was then die cut using a circular die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I love that she die cut another piece using matching cardstock on the scalloped die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes Coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts to go beneath the sentiment. This helps accentuates the foral pattern formed using the dark Embellishment Mousse!

The added snowflake embellishments made a fun finishing touch to her card!

Thank you so much Anja! Your card is spectacular!
