I love the placement of the flower bouquets in opposite corners which compliments the scripty sentiment in the center perfectly!
I also love the combination of the white heat embossed images and water colors which brings a very elegant feel!
All of the images and sentiments were die cut using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts in which you can find a large die that cuts out all of the sentiments strips at once – is a super time saver! The rounded corners on the sentiment strip also gives it a unique finishing touch.
Thank you so much Karen for your charming inspiration!
Hello crafty friends! Welcome to Day 3 of Sneak Peeks on our upcoming release! As a papercrafter, I like to try creating different styles of cards. I definitely love making cute and whimsical cards; nonetheless, I also love to create floral cards that have a more classic or elegant look. At least that was my goal for today’s sneak peek ^.^!
As I mentioned, this release has something for EVERYONE! If you adore floral cards, be sure to check out this new circular stencil, Spring Blooms Stencils 360°TM. If you haven’t tried our new tool yet, now’s the time! You’ll find that this tool is super easy to use, and it is also fun and additive!
Take this stencil for a spin, and you will be able to create a colorful floral background in just a few minutes, without the need for masking/tracing. The design of this stencil is clean, simple, and would definitely make a great card for any occasion!
I chose a pastel palette for my card. I blended a combination of Shaded Lilac, Twisted Citron, Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade, Pumice Stone and Cracked Pistachio on every turn. After just 5 turns of 60° (ie. jumping from solid circle to solid circle on the Base), the background was complete!
I used ‘Crown Me’ dye ink by Simon Hurley Create to stamp out the image “THANK YOU”, which is from our Heartfelt Notes stamp set. For a final touch of detail, I thought a lacy border would compliment the background of this card. What’s your take on it?
I hope you enjoyed today’s sneak peek. Be sure to come back tomorrow for more!
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.
With the Stencils 360°TM tool, she blended Distress Oxide inks on the Summer Blossom Stencil using Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistachio, and Squeezed Lemonade, at a rotation angle of 22.5 degrees. Sounds difficult? Not all all, just jump from one Heart symbol to another, and it’s super easy to do and takes very little time!
The “Thank You” sentiment from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set was stamped directly in the middle of the panel using Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink. This stamp is designed to fit perfectly in the middle of this Summer Blossom Design!
Her card was cut using the largest Dots-Meets-Dashes rectangle die which gives her this standard A2 size card with the lovely border detailing. The color combination on this card is just stunning!
Thank you so much for your beautiful inspiration Ashley!
Ashley chose the largest size Paper Positioner and used a 7 1/2″ piece of white cardstock as her canvas. To begin, she blended alternating colours of Distress Oxide inks in Speckled Egg, and Chipped Sapphire on just one of the stencil (Barrel 2) from the Sacred Lotus Stencil set, jumping from one heart symbol to another (ie. turning her stencil at 22.5° at each rotation); while leaving one out of every four rotations blank to later position her heat embossed petals.
After she’s done all her ink blending, she used Versamark ink and added silver embossing powder on the remaining petals. I just love the shimmery look with the heat embossing!
