Now let’s get to the rest of the “Around The World” collection of stamps! First we have Enchanting Paris! The French capital is one of the most romantic cities in Europe! Let this stamp set be your inspiration for building a romantic scene! The adorable poodle and the landmarks are just irresistible!
How adorable is Gladys’s soft-toned slimline card! I love her color choices for the scene, it’s so dreamy! To set the scene, she used the Sidewalk Scene builder Penguin Perfect Cuts for the lower portion of the card. This die cut is really handy for creating street scenes and is a must-have in your craft room! The stamped images were nicely laid out across the panel that was die cut from the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab stand-alone die. Notice the little cut-out details that the garden bench die cut give? She finished off her card with a sweet sentiment!
Ashley created a romantic snowy scene birthday card with this set. She also used the Sidewalk Scene builder Penguin Perfect Cuts to set the scene. I love how she ink-blended it slightly at the bottom with Distress Oxide ink in Tea Dye and that she added a strip of bright green cardstock above it for the pop of color! I’m loving the snowy background! Her images were all arranged onto a slimline card base (3.5×8.5 inches) die cut from the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab stand-alone die. To finish off, she scattered some sequins for the extra sparkle!
Next on our list is the Beautiful Africa set! If you love creating with critters you’re going to fall in love with this set as it’s got some of the cutest animals!
Stephanie has created this fun scene of the safari! The wavy slope was die cut from Desert Landscape Scene builder and splattered with Distress Ink in Ground Espresso. I love the sentiment in this set “Time to soak up the sun” which is super versatile! I love how she gave the little girl and the lion matching color outfits which even coordinate with the color of the jeep! It’s like a little team of safari explorers! And how adorable are the giraffe and the elephant!
Candice used a simple masking technique where she cut a circle from a piece of copy paper and taped it down to her card panel. Next, she used the stamps from the Beautiful Africa set to build her scene directly on the panel for a one-layer card! I love the way she overlaid the images one by one to create depths, so beautifully done!! After stamping out her scene she colored them all with Copics. I just love the colorful scene which really pops over the white background!
Finally I’d like to introduce the Aloha Hawaii stamps set & coordinating dies! This set has some of the cutest images ever! You can create so many different scenes with this set!
Allison made a bright portrait slimline. She cut out her beige panel using the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab die. She also cut out three frames using the Polaroid die cut from the Twist-N-Pop stand-alone die to house her fun images! What a clever way to use this die! Her card is so bright & colorful and full of positive energy!
