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!

Super Adorable Weekly Planner Spread with Jo!

Hi crafty friends! Today, we have something different for you. Jo is showing us a simple way to create a weekly planner spread with some super cute mermaid stamps! Check out Jo’s step by step video tutorial over on our YouTube Channel!

For this planner spread, she combined images from Pretty Mermaid Planner, Let’s Catch Up, Take a Break, and the Get Well soon stamp sets.

To start off, Jo added some colorful washi tape and ‘days of the week’ stickers on her spread. She directly stamp her mermaid images on some sticker sheets and color them with Copic Markers, and cut them using the coordinating dies. This way, she can easily peel them off and stick’em onto her planner!

These sets coordinate so well with each other, and it is super easy to get a cohesive look with all those adorable accessory images!

Thank you Jo, this planner spread is just super cute! Don’t forget to check out Jo’s step by step video tutorial over on our YouTube Channel!

Anja’s Interactive Underwater Scene!

Hello crafty friends! Today Anja is sharing with us a fun card featuring The More We Get Together stamp set and coordinating dies.

All the images were beautifully colored using Copics markers. She cut her two card panels using the largest dies from the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays and the Cross Stitched and Dots Large Ractangles Overlays. She then used a wave boarder die from My Favourite Things on the bottom panel.

The Cross Stitched and Dots upper panel was blended using Distress Oxide Ink Squeezed Lemonade. And with a sunray stencil, she created gorgeous sunray beams on top of that with the same ink, but this time adding a bit more pressure while blending to get the darker hue.

The wavy panel was blended using Mermaid Lagoon and Broken China. She then added some white pigment ink to extend those sunray beams into the ocean!

I love that she added an action wobbler for the blow fish to make it even more interesting! See the cute fish in action below!

Finally she added the sentiment, “You Blow Meow Away” to finish off!

Thanks Anja! I love this cute underwater scene!

Thanks for stopping by everyone!
