A Charming Summer Palette Inspired Encouragement Card with Candice!

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve last posted on the blog. I have been super busy preparing for our Fall/Winter 2021 New Release and I cannot wait to show you what we have to offer!

The weather over here in Vancouver is getting a little cooler lately, and looks like Fall is just around the corner! But just before autumn, Candice is back to share this fun encouragement card inspired by the summer colour palette of our current Challenge happening over on our Challenge Blog!

Candice used the Hearts Bouquet Stencils 360°™ and created this fun spiral effect by masking off half the hearts and blending in alternating light and dark purple inks.

She stamped and Copic-coloured the cute little bunny and tree from My BFF stamp set, and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.

Lastly, she white heat embossed the sentiment onto a black strip and adhered everything down to the card!

Thank you Candice for sharing this lovely creation!

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!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

A Mini Slimline Egyptian Desert Scene By Stephanie!

Hi guys! We’ve had a long weekend over here and the week seems to be passing by quickly! Today Stephanie is back with an Egyptian themed mini slimline card!

All these cute images are from the Mysterious Egypt stamp set and die cut using its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. This mini slimline panel was cut using the largest rectangle die from Cinematic Shadow Box stand-alone die.

These faux stitch detailed wavy landscapes were created using dies from the Desert Landscape Scene Builder Dies & Stencil set. This Dies & Stencil set also has some other innovative and functional uses, do check out this intro video if you haven’t yet!

I love how Stephanie stamped out a bunch of the images twice to make the scene even fuller and more interesting! I also love all the little details like how the cute mummy is peeking out its coffin!

Thank you so much Stephanie for sharing this fun and charming card!

Thank you for stopping by, have a great evening!

A Mini Slimline Interactive Card With Gladys!

Hello and Happy Friday everyone! Today Gladys is back to share a super adorable Mini-Slimline Interactive card featuring our new stamp set Beautiful Africa and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

Gladys used one of the dies from Cinematic Shadow Box to die cut her panel. I love the gorgeous background which was blended using a combination of Distress Oxide Inks including Blueprint Sketch, Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick and Scattered Straw.

She also took the pull tab die from Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab – Stand-Alone Die to create the pull tab mechanism. I love how she made the cute lion appear from behind the jeep with the pull tab – such a brilliant idea!

The sentiment “It’s time to soak up the sun” from Beautiful Africa is the perfect match for this charming little scene! Thank you so much Gladys for sharing this delightful interactive card!

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration, and thank you for stopping by!
