An Underwater Shaker Card with Anja!

Hi crafty friends! I’m so excited to share Anja’s shaker card for today! Anja used our recent released The More We Get Together stamp set and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts for this card.

All of the images were colored with Copic markers and die cut with the coordinating dies. I love that she used the slimline card in its portrait orientation so that she can arrange her scene in a tiered manner!

She die cut two slimline panels, and one of which had two windows for her shaker element. I love the beautifully blended turquoise tones on her card panels. Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Ink was used on the back panel and Peacock Feather on the top panel.

I love the adorable seal on the ice berg floating at the very top with its thumbs up! As you look further down, you will see a bunch of adorable sea creatures including some tiny fishes, cuttle fishes and even a jelly fish!

Other accessory images like the seaweed, coral reefs and sea shell, just make the scene so much fuller and cuter!

To finish off, she added white gel pen highlights. Thank you Anja for this fun and awesome creation!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you like this example featuring The More We Get Together stamps and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts!

A Delightful Summer Scene Card with Davina!

Hey everyone! Davina is back to share with us a super delightful summer scene card!

Davina combined cool images from the Summer Sunshine stamp set and The More We Get Together stamp set to create this unique and incredible scene!

She stamped a bunch of images from both sets and colored them up using bright summery colors. I love how the cool kitty is suntanning on the beach and at the same time, having all the cute creatures swimming in the ocean!

She used the largest die from the Cross Stitched and Dots Large Rectangle Overlays on her back panel for the wonderful boarder detail. She cut the stitched layers from several panels of Bristol smooth cardstock, and inked them up using Distress Oxide Inks.

I just love the splash of water and the watery inks on the cards for the added texture.

She used the sentiment, “Seas the Day” from the Summer Sunshine stamp set on the sand layer then adhered all of the pieces together.  

Thank you so much Davina for this lovely scene. It is so vibrant and lively!  I really love how she composed her card into a split level scene where you can see both the beach and the underwater!

Thank for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

Ashley’s Interactive Slider Card!

Hi everyone! Ashley joins us today with a cute interactive slider card featuring products from our latest release! You can check out her step-by-step video tutorial over on our YouTube Channel!

She used Distress Oxide Inks for the background blending on the main panel. Antique Linen and Vintage Photo were blended for the sand; Faded Jeans, Blueprint Sketch and Tumbled Glass were blended for the water. She used a homemade stencil (vellum cut with a wavy border die on the top and bottom) to create the seabed and for masking purposes during blending.

I love the splatter of liquid shimmer and white paint for the added texture. Images from the The More We Get Together stamp set were stamped in black ink and coloured with Copic markers and die cut using their coordinating dies. I really love that she added a wavy slider channel into the card panel for the kitty-blow fish to swim across the ocean!

I love how the little fishy is peeking out from the coral reefs! She also used he Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlays and Dots Meet Dashes Small Rectangle Overlays stand-alone die cuts for some nice boarder details.

Lastly, a few circular sequins were added for just the right amount of extra sparkle!

Thanks so much Ashley for your lovely card! It is so so cute!

A Super Fun Interactive Card with Guest Designer Laura Dovalo!

Hi Guys! We are super excited today as we have an impressive interactive card to share by our Guest Designer, Laura Dovalo!

Here’s a quick view of Laura’s card in action:

Laura made a beautiful underwater scene using the images from The More We Get Together stamp set. All of the images were colored using Copic Markers.

While masking-off her colored images on the card, her background was beautifully ink blended using Chipped Sapphire, Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks. She splattered water over the panel to create some nice texture.

Laura made her own pull tab and rotating mechanism, so that the blow fish would move up and down, while the seal’s arm would lift up at the same time with its thumbs up! Such a clever design!!

See how she put together this interactive card in detail by watching her video tutorial over on our YouTube Channel!

Thank you so much Laura for your out of the world inspiration! Double thumbs up!

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

First we have Ashley’s beautiful creation! I love the alcohol ink background she created to mimic the ocean. She used many of the images from the set to create a vibrant underwater scene! The cute sentiment finished the card off brilliantly!

Next we have Vera and her set of cards. Vera made 3 cards and each of the cards has got its own special theme.

She stamped out a unique sentiment on each of her card. Each of these correlates to certain images from the set.

This set is so versatile and you can create lots of different scenes with the different elements. Do you see the elegant board details that she added to each of the cards? They were created with our Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangles Overlays – Stand-Alone Die which we will showcase a bit later in the week.

This 4×6″ stamp set has some of the most lovable critters. It is ideal for friendship and encouragement cards. These cool images can be used to create gorgeous Spring themed scenes, or fun Easter Greeting cards!

Ashley made a friendship card with this set. I love the Distress Oxide ink blended background with Spun Sugar, Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw, Shabby Shutters, Tumbled Glass and Milled Lavender. She added splatters of of rainbow watercolors to match cohesively with the blended background. Who can resist such cute bunnies and kitties? I just love this happy scene.

Anja created an Easter greeting card. She chose the cute bunnies from the set as her main characters. The easter eggs, smiley rainbow, flowers, tree and butterflies are perfect accessories to add to the whole scene.

Next we have Vera’s card. She made a clean friendship card with the two pair of kitties and bunnies. Notice how the leave cluster stamps for the tree can also be used as clouds in the sky? Loving the pastel tone of this card!

Finally we have Davina’s creation. She also made an Easter greeting card. I love the white gel pen details on all of the images. She also used an image of the sun from our Summer Sunshine stamp set and the Cross Stitched and Dots Large Rectangle Overlays – Stand-Alone Die for the cool boarder detailing.
