Anja’s Rainbow Friendship Card!

Hi guys! Anja is back today with her new card to share! Her card features the new background die Classic Diamonds Backdrop and My BFF stamps and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

With this new backdrop die, she cut out an A2 size panel. She then ink blended a white card base using Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks. This made a beautiful rainbow hue for the background!

She added some cute images from the My BFF stamp set across the middle portion. I love how she left the bottom part of the card base totally white for a bold contrast. Her sentiment “Thank You For Being A Great Friend” was stamped on the green patterned paper.

Thank you so much Anja! I love this neat and simple card!

Ashley’s Adorable Encouragement Card!

Hello friends! We have the cutest card by Ashley to share with you today!

Ashley used some products from our recent release for this card. First she die cut three pieces of light blue cardstock using the Classic Diamonds Backdrop die.

The three pieces were glued together with liquid glue for the extra depth. I love how she chose the same blue color for the card base to create a tone-on-tone look.

She combined images from the My BFF stamp set, cut them out with the coordinating dies, adhered them to the front of the card with foam squares for the added dimensions. The the “Tomorrow will be a good day” is also from the same stamp set sentiment from the same stamp set which was stamped in matching blue ink.

I love the idea of having one tree with just the branches and the other one grown flourished with leave clusters, to reflect the little sentiment!

Finally, she adhered gems with a small dab of liquid glue below each diamond cut-out in the card to get the dazzling sparkly look.

Thank you so much Ashley for sharing your card with us!

Today, we are going to focus on the final product in this release which is a Stand-Alone die called the Classic Diamond Backdrop.

First up is Vera’s dreamy card! I love her soft- toned inked background. She used the Dots Meet Dashes Small Rectangle Overlays to cut out two small rectangles to house her cute little bunnies from the My BFF stamp set, together with the Cola & drink from the There’s No One Like You stamp set. The clouds and smiley rainbows are also from the My BFF stamp set. She kept her card relatively simple but it is super gorgeous!

Next is Davina’s delightful friendship card. I just love the bright rainbow color blending on this diamond backdrop. She layered it against a white card base which makes the diamond cut-outs really pop! The cute kids are from the new The Sweetest Truck stamp set. As you can see, with a bold backdrop like this one, you don’t really need to add too much in order to create a charming card!

Jo made a dazzling shaker card for us using this stand-alone die. These cute images and sentiment are from the Hot Mama stamp set. I love how she created a 2-layer backdrop. The little fish tails are just the ideal addition to this mermaid card! The sequins she used also match the color of her card seamlessly!

Finally, I’ve made a just because card for you today. I’ve used the Classic Diamonds Backdrop die on Mysterious Galaxy – Medium Weight Premium Cardstock. I layered it against The Sandstone Series – Banana Boat – Premium Fine Paper on the outer edges, and the Essentials – Smooth Bright White 100lb. Heavy Weight Cardstock across the middle portion. I thought the bright yellow and white against this black & shimmering cardstock would give a wonderful contrast. These adorable images are from the There’s No One Like You stamp set.
