Adorable Polar Bear Card with Ashley Ebben

Hi there! Today Ashley E. is back to share the cutest card featuring one of the stamp sets from our latest release, Happy Track & Field (Chapter 2) and its coordinating dies.

For this card, she chose the polar bear doing the pole-vault as the main character which is so adorable! She also added the cheerleaders to cheer on this cute little bear! Looks like the bear is going to make the jump^^!

The blue sky is beautifully executed using Distress Oxides Inks in Broken China and Tumbled Glass. The grassy field was also blended with Distress Oxides in Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover for the added depth.

I love the splatter of bright green water color on the grass for the extra dimension, and the white gel pen details on the images. She then white heat-embossed sentiment “I will polar-vault to your heart” which finished off the card perfectly!

Thanks so much Ashley for this bright and refreshing card featuring our Happy Track & Field (Chapter 2) stamp and dies.!

Thank you for stopping by our blog, have a great day!

How Are You Feeling?

Hi everyone! Ali is back with us to share a Just Because card with us featuring our Rain of Hearts Penguin Perfect Pattern – Designer Stencil!

I love how Ali used the stencil with Distress oxide inks to created the abundant hearts background which fades out towards the edges.

She added a cute penguin from our Penguin Agenda stamp set.

She also white heat-embossed the sentiment “how are you feeling…?” from the same set on a black strip of paper and put it across the centre of the card to make an eye catchy bold statement.

Since this stencil can create quite a rich background on its own, some big scripty die-cut letters “crafty friend” would finish off the card nicely without overdoing it.

Thanks Ali for sharing! I’m feeling crafty already!

I love how she added stars stickers across the blue blended sky. This coordinates so well with the punny sentiment “YOU ARE MY LOB-STAR”! The grinning lobster sue knows how to face the camera!!

May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor!

Hi everyone! We have another super cute card to share with you today.

Ashely did an awesome job mixing images from our new Lucky Break stamp set and the Happy Track and Field (Chapter 2) stamp set.

For the background, she did a pretty fade-in blending using Distress Oxide inks in Milled Lavender and Blueprint Sketch.

I really love how she stacked the little bunnies. The bowl of popcorn and the lollipop are just what the bunnies needed while playing with the bear-themed slot machine! 🙂

The white heat embossed sentiment on a black strip of paper gives a great contrast to this ink blended background. The popping coins also give the card the perfect finishing touch! Head over to Ashley’s blog for more details on this card!

Thank you so much Ashley for sharing this lovely creation!

Happy Track & Field Cards with Davina and Vera!

Today we have two beautiful cards to share with you featuring our Happy Track and Field (Chapter 1) stamp set and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

First we have Davina’s creation. She used the two jumping characters and the track hurdle as her main images from the set. I really love her choice of patterned paper and the ink blended golden/ombré background of the card.

She used a curved slider die to make a track for my kangaroo to move across. How cute is that! The added piece of quote is a very nice touch to the sentiment from the set, “TAKE A LEAP OF FAITH”!

Next we have Vera’s card. Vera water coloured in the couple of cute turtles for her scene. I love her choice of pastel water colors. It is so dreamy!

The hearts were obtained from the negative die cuts using our Butterflies with Love stand alone die.

Thank you ladies for these gorgeous pieces, I’m sure they will inspire lots of card makers out there!

Thank you for stopping by, have a great day!
