Digital Stamps Inspiration with Zubaida and Giorgia!

Hi Friends! I’m pleased to share two very adorable projects with you today, featuring the latest digital stamp sets in our shop!

First we have a mini slimline by Zubaida. This card features the new Cruising on the Ocean digital stamp set. She printed the digital images on Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock and colored the entire scene with Copic Markers.

I love this fun scene! The sparkly embellishment and the white gel pen highlights give the perfect finishing touches!

Then we have Giorgia’s fun card featuring the Best Chef Ever digital stamp set. I just love the vibrant colors that she chose!

These cute images are so irresistible! If you’ve never tried digital stamps before, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t give it a go!

I hope these cards will brighten up your day! Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!

Cute Critters on Cards Never Get Old!

Hello friends! We have a super cute card by Heejung to share with you today!

These cute critters are from our latest Digi stamp Beautiful Brazil!

To set the scene, Heejung used the Woodland Scene Builder Layered die set to create a forest background. I love how she further framed this with a nice wide border.

The bright and bold color combination sure gives an ambience of liveliness!

The hearts confetti also elevates the scene and give it an even more festive vibe!

Thank you so much Heejung for your wonderful inspiration!

An Interactive Cinematic Shadow Box – A Busy Street Scene!

Hi! I hope all of you are having a great week! Today I am sharing one of the biggest shadow scene I’ve ever made! This card is themed around a busy street with lots of fun elements!

I used the Cinematic Shadow Box stand alone die cut to create the backbone of my card. You can have up to 4 tabs in this shadow box which gives great dimension and lots of room to fit ample stamped images!

I combined images from a bunch of different stamp sets including The Sweetest Truck, Rabbit Cafe, Happy Track and Field (Chapter 2), Fun Adventure, and Sweet Ride.

I thought why not take it to the next level and combine this shadow box with an interactive element! I used the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab – Stand-Alone Die to make the Ice Cream truck move down this busy street!

Check out this card in action below!

I used the Sidewalk Scene Builder – Stand-Alone Die to die cut the two sidewalks on The Sandstone Series – Smokey Eyes – Heavyweight Premium Cardstock and then added splashes of paints. For the background wall, I blended Distress Oxide Inks on the Mega Blocks stencil and die cut it using the large dotted border die from the Cinematic Shadow Box.

I just love making these mini scenes on this shadow box! Acetate played a big part in the assembly of this card.

I used acetate for a couple of the tabs in the box so that the road background could show through. I added acetate to mimic the Ice Cream Truck’s windows. I also used it for placing the music notes that are coming from the ice-cream truck!

To keep everything in perspective, I laid out the images so that larger characters go near the front and smaller ones go at the back.

I stamped out a sentiment from The Sweetest Truck on the front tab of the box which I had trimmed down to show more of the sidewalk at the bottom.

I hope you enjoyed this inspiration and thank you so much for stopping by!

A Colorful Mini Slimline Card With Guest Designer Michelle!

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by! Our Guest Designer Michelle Short is sharing a delightful rainbow hue mini slimline card over at her blog today!

Her card features the We Are Right For Each Other stamp set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

She stamped out some adorable images from this set and Copic Colored them before die cutting them out with the coordinating dies.

She also picked out some words to form this lovely sentiment. I love how these words stamp to fit perfectly onto the puzzle pieces!

For the background, She blended Distress Inks in rainbow hues on to a panel of white cardstock and spritzed water on top for the extra texture.

Once dried, it was adhered to the mini slimline card base with foam tape and then the images added on top with more foam tape.

I love the wide contrasting black border which I think really brings out the rainbow colors!

Thank you so much Michelle, your card is super adorable! We are thrilled to have you Guest Design for us for the past few weeks!

An Adorable Shadow Box Card by Mimi!

Hello everyone! Mimi is back today with a super adorable shadow box inspiration!

She custom made her own shadow box measuring about 5 3/4 long to set the scene. She also made a couple of one inch wide tabs to fit into her box.

She then adhered her beautifully colored critters from the Inseparable stamp set on the different tabs to create the three dimensional look!

She added a bunch of accessory images such as the muffin, coffees from Rabbit Cafe. I also love the scattered flowers and how she used the dance floor image from Fun Night Out as the picnic blanket – so clever!

The sentiment on the front of the box is from Unity and Friendship Quotes. The hanging banner flags on the tree (also from Inseparable) gives her card the perfect finishing touch!

Thank you Mimi for your charming shadow box card! It is super sweet!
