Ashley’s Super Adorable Just Because Card!

Hi guys! Ashley’s card for today will sure light up someone’s day!

Ashely combined images from The Sweetest Truck, Fun Night Out and Happy Track and Field (Chapter 2) stamp sets!

I love the scene that she created here! For her background, she die cut a piece of light blue cardstock cut using the largest die from our Dots Meets Dashes Large Rectangle Overlay die (and also die cut with a cloud stitched cover die); together with a piece of light green cardstock as the grassy field.

I love that she had the little cub server inside the truck, and she put so many different desserts into the paws of the little critters! Aren’t they cute!?

Those bright and colorful images were elevated onto foam squares and arranged on the card front. The sentiments from The Sweetest Truck were stamped out onto strips of light green cardstock in black ink, while the word TRUCK was die cut with some alphabet die set out of yellow patterned paper!

I love how she further decorated her card with a bunch of music notes which gave this card an extra ounce of happiness!

This card is super adorable, thank you Ashley for your fun and happy inspiration!

A Super Sweet Happy Birthday Card by Anja!

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday! Let’s keep up social distancing and continue to connect virtually with friends and family!

Today Anja’s back to share a super sweet Happy Birthday card with us.

Anja die cut some white cardstock with the largest die from the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlay stand alone die to give some nice looking boarder details. She stamped out images were from The Sweetest Truck stamp set, Copic colored them and cut them out using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I love that she had both the cute bear server and the little girl looking out the window of the truck.

She blended her background using Mustard See, Spiced Marmalade and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks. These colors go cohesively with her colored images. I love how she masked of a portion on the panel while blending to leave a thick white boarder for some bold contrast.

She then white heat embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment with on black cardstock.

For some final touches, she stamped the tiny starts and hearts in matching inks to create a tone-on-tone effect. She also added some glossy accents over the windows of the truck for some shimmer and shine!

Thank you Anja for sharing this sweet creation! A clean and simple card is always the best!

Today’s focus is going to be on the new The Sweetest Truck stamp set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts!

I’ve been longing for a stamp full of happy vibe and that is why we came up with this set. This ice cream truck themed stamp set is just so wonderful to play with!

Who doesn’t love a truck load of sweet goodies?  You’ll have endless fun playing with this set with all the cute characters and timeless desserts! Great for birthday cards, friendship cards, and just because cards.

Our Creative Team had made some of the cutest cards ever, now let’s check them out!

Ashley made a super colorful just because card with this set. Her background was blended with Distress Oxide Inks, Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron. I love the silver glittery clouds she added. She chose the cute bear to be selling ice cream at of the window! I love the bunch of musical notes she added which made her card so much more alive! Click HERE to check out her video tutorial on our YouTube Channel and give it a like!

Next we have Anja’s creation. This card is so fantastic. I love the blended sky, which went so well with the color of the truck. Looks like the children and the cub are enjoying their time in the garden! I also love that she combined the sentiment “wishing you truck loads of “, altogether with “Fun”, Happiness”, and Ice cream”!

Vera made a happy birthday card in a portrait orientation. She had the cute ice cream truck as her background. This time she put both the little girl and the bear at the windows, and the little couple at the front enjoying their ice cream and beverage on a grassy field. The tone of this card just gives a super relaxing vibe!

Next we have Davina’s project. Her card is just perfect for Spring! I love the color palette that she chose. The colors on the images, cardstock, and patterned paper all comes together seamlessly. She also used some the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlay boarder dies to create layering for her card. Love the splatter of paint and the gel pen detailing as her finishing touches.

I’m so excited to have Laura Dovalo guest designing for us this week. Laura made a gorgeous happy birthday card! She made her own patterned paper by stamping out multiple times some of the accessory images from this set, including the 3-tier ice cream cone and the popsicles. I just love how this background is full of desserts that I love! She did some clever masking on the characters to make them look like they are holding the desserts in their hands, love it!

Finally, we have my card! I thought it would be fun to have the cub waving from behind the truck. By combining the stamp image with the struts supports and the Irresistible Ice-cream Treat embellishment, I attempted to mimic a giant inflatable ice cream advertising display on top of the truck! I thought it turned out pretty cool!

A BIG Thank-You to our wonderful and talented Creative Team! Head over to their blogs for more details on these cards.

A Dazzling Good Luck Card with Ashley E.

Hello everyone! Before we go to today’s card, I’d like to give a warm reminder that our Spring 2020 new release is coming up real soon! Stay tuned for some sneak peeks starting on 22 Mar. We can’t wait to show you what we have in store!

Today Ashley is back to share a vibrant and sparkly card featuring the Lucky Break stamp set!

She stamped out three of the cute bear slot machines from the set and colored them with Copic markers. She used a bunch of the accessory images to go on the wheels of the machines. The colour combinations are so lovely.

This card is a one layer card. She masked-off the three slot machines and blended the background with Distress Oxides in Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers.

I love the splatter of gold acrylic paint on top. The sentiment “May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor” was stamped with jet black ink at the bottom of the card. I love the bold sparkly letters “LUCKY” which she added to finish off her card.

Thank you Ashley! Your good luck card is super cheerful and bright!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
