Holiday Greetings with Stefanie and Candice!

HI everyone! We hope you’ve had a wonderful BFCM! We have two wonderful inspirations to share with you! First we have Stefanie who brought us this gorgeous minimalist X’mas card!

Three stamp sets were used to create this super cool tree: Magical Christmas Sentiments, Fun Doodle Dividers, and the stars are from Minimalist Christmas Trees! I love the black on white which gives this card a very modern look! I also love the black watercolor splatter for the added interest!

The doodle dividers are used so cleverly in this design! I also love how she used kraft cardstock as the notecard which compliments her minimalist design really well!

Next we have Candice’s creation! Her card is inspired by our current Challenge which is happening over on our Challenge Blog! This month’s challenge theme is Holiday Cards!


I adore the watercolor galaxy background with the white paint splatter mimicking the stars!

To create the moon, she used one of the dies from the Mountain Landscape and Scene Builder. She stamped and Copic-colored a few of the images from the Let’s Meet IRL stamp set and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

I love the Nellie’s Choice Snow Effect to make the Santa hats look fuzzy! What a cute finishing touch!

Thank you so much Stefanie and Candice for sharing your delightful creations!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Don’t forget to head to our Challenge Blog and upload YOUR holiday card for a chance to win a $25 Gift Card to our shop!

It’s Never Too Early for X’mas Greeting Cards!

Hi friends! Want some inspirational ideas for a Christmas card? Today we have a fantastic card created by Bobbi featuring the Crystal Snowflakes – Penguin Perfect Patterns.

These beautiful snowflakes were created using Frostbite Glacier Paste by Nuvo on the Crystal Snowflake Stencil. I love how Bobbi added a more subtle layer of stenciled snowflakes in grey for the color contrast.

The sentiment Merry X’mas was stamped in a Memento Teal Zeal ink and die cut it with its coordinating die.

I love how she added a layer of vellum using the scalloped circular die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt notes die set to give it a softer look.

She then added a metallic silver string to make the sentiment look like a hanging ornament which is perfect since this image was designed three dimensionally as if the sentiment was engraved on a sphere!

For the sparkly touch, she added teal, white and aqua sequins, and teal dots using Glass Effects Gel in a teal color. 

Mass producing X’mas cards is sure made super simple with this stencil!

Thank you Bobbi! Your card is so bright and beautiful!

A Gorgeous Poinsettia from Ashley!

Hello crafty friends! Today’s card has such wonderful Christmas vibes!

Ashley first prepared an A2 size cardstock die cut from the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays – Stand-Alone Die. Using our Stencils 360°TM tool, she blended Distress Oxide inks in Candied Apples and Pine Needles onto the Sacred Lotus stencil in an alternating fashion as she rotated it. I just love how simple it is to create such a beautiful look of a poinsettia!

The sentiment “Hugs” from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set was stamped in light yellow ink on a small white circular piece of stitched cardstock.

I love how she then layered that onto a piece of glittery yellow cardstock cut with the scalloped circle die from the Warmest Wishes and Heartfelt Notes coordinating Penguin cuts. The glittery yellow sure gives a nice contrast to the deep red flower!

Finally the entire panel was adhered onto a piece of gold foil cardstock for the shiny and glamours look!

Thank you so much Ashley! This card reminds me so much of Christmas!

A Cool Snowy Scene with Lynnea!

Hi Crafty Friends! Today Lynnea is back with a video tutorial that features our Crystal Snowflakes – Penguin Perfect Pattern – Designer Stencil, and our earlier release, Rabbit Café stamp set & coordinating dies.

Lynnea started by blending the background using Distress Oxide ink, Hickory Smoke. Then she used Fired Brick to do the snow flakes with our Crystal Snowflakes stencil.

She mainly chose both red-tone and warm grey for her images from the Rabbit Café stamp set, to make them coordinate with the background seamlessly.

She decided to make the little shop a Coffee Shop and added the sentiment “STAY SWEET” to finish off her card. Who wouldn’t love a hot coffee in the cold snowy weather! She also added a bunch of silvery gems which makes her card even more charming!

Check out her video tutorial on our YouTube Channel and give it a like!

Thanks Lynnea for this wonderful card! I really like how the gems look like falling snow!

Thanks for stopping by, have an awesome day.

A Dreamy Holiday Card with Davina!

Hi there! Today Davina is back to share a dreamy holiday card with us! Looks like a bunch of happy penguins are having a party and the adorable mermaid is here to join in on the fun!

Davina made a slimline card or 6.25 inches using multiple images from our earlier releases, including the Penguin Agenda stamp set & coordinating dies, and the Get Well Soon stamp set & coordinating dies. She also used our new release Crystal Snowflakes Penguin Perfect Pattern – Designer Stencil for this card.

I love her sky background which was inked up using Distress Oxide Ink Pink Spun Sugar and Dusty Concord. The ocean was blended using Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers. The splash of bright white ink added a little more depth to the ocean.

She chose the white embossing paste as the medium with the Crystal Snowflakes Stencil on her blended sky, to create the perfect dreamy snowy scene! The pretty music notes are from the Fun Night Out stamp set, while the pretty mermaid is from the Get Well Soon stamp set.

I love the light pastel colors for all her characters and the whole card comes together so well in this sunset/dusk scene.

Thank you Davina for this fun card! Besides the cute images, I really love the balloons and hats accessories and the happy vibe of this card!

Thank you for stopping by, have a great day!
