Congrats on a New Home!

Hi guys! An early Happy British Columbia Day to all! As a Canadian shop, we’re celebrating this special day with a 15% OFF sitewide, today and tomorrow!

Today I have a card for you featuring multiple stamps and dies from different releases!

To set the scene, I used the body of the Home Sweet Home stand-alone die cut on The Sandstone Series – Cool Granite – Heavy Weight Premium Cardstock. I blended Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink onto it for some added shadowing. I then cut out the roof using the Mysterious Galaxy – Medium Weight Premium Cardstock. This cardstock has a subtle shimmer to it and I like it a lot for the roof!

I took some patterned paper and The Sandstone Series – Banana Boat – Premium Fine Paper to mimic wallpapers on the inside of the home.

I stamped and Copic colored images from multiple stamp sets, including Happy Track and Field (Chapter 2), Sweet Ride, Lucky Break, Bee Happy, Cuddly Sheeps Seasons’ Greetings, Rabbit Café, Summer Sunshine, My BFF, and Congratulations!

I took the adorable girl from Sweet Ride and the cute bunny from Happy Track and Field (Chapter 2) and placed them inside the home, looking out the window and the door. I took the boy from Lucky Break and place him in front of the house.

I then placed the tiny bee from Bee Happy on the window sill, and bells from Cuddly Sheep’s Season’s Greetings on the door for some extra décor!

I also gave the little bunny a rose which was from the My BFF stamp set!

I thought the home needed more decorations, so I stamped the plants from Rabbit Café multiple times, and used them as potted plants in front of this home.

I used sentiments from the Congratulations stamp set to finish off this card. I did some masking to make “Congratulations” into a short-form “Congrats!” as I thought the full version was a bit long for this card, and I’m happy with how it turned out!

For the final touch, I added the smiley sunshine from the Summer Sunshine stamp set to give the card a little warmth!

I hope you like today’s card. Thanks so much for stopping by!

And don’t forget, we are working hard on our next release, and we hope to bring you some new goodies real soon!

A Colorful Mermaid Just Because Card by Jo!

Hi guys, Happy Friday! Let’s kick off this weekend with Jo’s adorable mermaid card for today!

Jo made a lovely scene using both old and new stamp sets from our shop, including the Let’s Catch Up, Pretty Mermaid Planner and The More We Get Together! Check out her video tutorial over on our YouTube Channel and give it a like!

Jo blended the beautiful ocean using Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks. And she used Walnut Stain for the seabed layering.

The cute mermaid on the treadmill is from the Pretty Mermaid Planner stamp set, while the other two doing yoga and weight lifting are from the Let’s Catch Up stamp set!

I love that she added some sea creatures and ocean related images from The More We Get Together to complete her scene! These cute images easily go together with the mermaids and the overall look is flawless!

The sentiment “Let’s Go Exercising” is also from Let’s Catch Up!

Thanks Jo for this wonderful message! Speaking of, I believe my yoga session is long overdue!

Slimline Picnic Scene with Anja!

Hi guys! Wish you all had a very Happy Canada Day yesterday. Today we have Anja sharing another slimline card with us!

This slimline is telling a story and I love it! Anja combined images from The Sweetest Truck, Never Give Up, My BFF, Summer Sunshine and the Bee Happy stamp sets!

She die cut 3 stitched slimline panels to create the sky and the grassy hills scene. I love the Distress Oxide ink blending on the background. She used Tumbled Glass for the sky, and Mowed Lawn and Shabby Shutters for the grassy hills.

I love the smiley trees which are built using the images from My BFF stamp set, the bunnies, flowers, butterflies and the kitty in the trolley are also from the same set.

The other characters are a mixture of images from Summer Sunshine, Sweetest Truck and the Bee Happy stamp sets. All of the images were colored using Copics and aren’t they lovely!!

I love that she added some cute refreshments on the table (those adorable sushis are from Never Give Up stamp set) to make the scene even more interesting! Looks like this bunch is having a great party!

She assembled her card using both liquid glue and foam tape to create a bit of dimension to the card.

Thank you Anja! This scene is so full of fun!

A Super Sweet Just Because Card with Anja!

Hi friends! Anja is back today with a super cute card featuring The Sweetest Truck stamp set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts!

First she die cut two panels using the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays and the Dots Meet Dashes Small Rectangles Overlays. She chose a rainbow patterned paper as her back panel and white cardstock for the top panel.

I love that she took the negative space from a die cut heart as a template and stamped out cute little desserts multiple times to create this gorgeous pattern in a heart shape! They all look super yummy! All the images were then colored with Copic markers.

She also stamped the little girl from the set and added a donut in her hand! Our die cut piece for this little girl has a slot at her hand so that you give her any wonderful dessert from the set as you wish!

To finish off, she added a sentiment “STAY SWEET” from the Rabbit Cafe stamp set, which is perfect for this card!

Thank you Anja! I love this sweet and adorable card!
