Hello and welcome back crafty friends! Today I’m showcasing the new Kaleidoscope Stencils 360 from Penguin Palace. If you haven’t seen the Stencils 360 before, it’s a super cool circular stenciling tool that opens up a world of possibilities, there’s a great video all about it here.
I started with a 6 x 6 inch piece of white cardstock so it fit nicely in the 6 inch template for the Stencils 360. I used the 6 inch guide ring with the Stencils 360, and inked the Kaleidoscope stencil every 60 degrees.
For the first card, I blended candied apple distress ink toward the center of the stencil and switched to carved pumpkin toward the outside to get an ombre look. I cut the stenciled panel down to just under 4 ½ x 4 ½ inches and mounted it onto a top-folding 4 ½ inch square card base. I stamped and Copic colored the little volcano from the Aloha Hawaii stamp set and cut it out with the coordinating die. With Versamark ink, I stamped and white heat embossed the “I lava you” sentiment from the same set onto a black sentiment strip. To finish the card off I adhered the volcano and sentiment strip toward the center of the card.
I followed the same process for the second card. This time I blended (from the center, outward) mermaid lagoon, salty ocean, and tumbled glass distress inks. The elephant and sentiment are from the Beautiful Africa stamp set.
I hope you enjoy these clean and simple cards – they were SO fun to make and would be great to mass produce with all sorts of little stamped images!
