A Super Cute Pop-Up Surprise Interactive Card by Stephanie!

Hi everyone! We are super excited to announce that our Spring 2021 New Releases are NOW officially in the shop!! WOOHOO!! Don’t forget to grab our FREE GIFT while supplies last!

Today we have Stephanie here to share her new card featuring the Twist-N-Pop Surprise die.

She combined this fun die with the use of super adorable images from the Mysterious Egypt stamp set! For the pop-up element in the centre, she blended the back panels of the polaroid with Distress oxide inks in Fossilized Amber and Dark Espresso.

I love the two mini scenes she created in these polaroid frames! She also added a few images on the base of the card to add even more interest to her card!

To finish off, she split the long sentiment from the Mysterious Egypt stamp set onto the two sentiment tabs, one of each side. What a great way to bring the two scenes of the card together!

This new Twist-N-Pop Surprise card is super easy to put together, if you haven’t watched my intro video, be sure to head over to our YouTube channel to watch it!

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful card with us today Stephanie! This fun card is sure to put a smile on someone’s face!

Ashley’s Awesome Egyptian Themed Slimline Pull Tab Card!

Hello crafty friends! I hope you all enjoyed our Reveal and Inspiration Chapter on the new Spring 2021 Release. All new products will be official in our shop TOMORROW!! Yay!!

Ashley’s back to share an awesome interactive slimline card with us! And this scene is just so much fun!

She used our Desert Landscape die and stencil set to make this gorgeous background, with lots of ink blending to make it look like a desert scene. I just love the 3-dimensional look!

Images from the Mysterious Egypt stamp set were coloured with Copic markers and cut with the coordinating dies.

I really love her idea of using the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab – Stand-Alone Die to make the mummy pop out of the coffin when the pull tab is pulled, super cute!

A sentiment from the stamp set was stamped in navy blue ink and adhered on a strip to the card, which matches the navy blue back panel that she made using the Navy Blazer – Heavyweight Premium Cardstock from the newest Spectrum Collection.

Thank you Ashley! Your card is super fun and inspiring!

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a magnificent day!

Each of the new stamp sets in this release is themed to a unique destination “Around the World”! Ashley created a fun scene with our Bond With Nature Canada stamp set & coordinating dies. Her card was assembled on a mini-slimline background measuring 3.5 x 6″. The background was ink-blended with Distress Oxide inks and I love the sparkling splatters that were added to all the layers. Camping is one of the outdoor activities that Canadian loves and there are so many adorable images you can choose from this set to create a fun camping scene! Ashley‘s scene is so adorable, what a fun way to wish someone Happy Birthday!

How adorable is Stephanie’s happy scene! I love how she added the marshmallows on sticks on both the characters! Looks like they are having such a great time! The mountain & landscapes were created using the die cuts from the Mountain Landscape Scene Builder set.

Mountain Landscape Scene Builder Set – Die Cuts

I love the addition of the little beaver (one of the most iconic animals of Canada!) and the punny sentiment is just so much fun!

The Mountain Landscape Scene Builder set also comes with this large stencil that will help you create beautiful landscape details such as grassy hill highlights, snowy hill tops, or even rocky mountains!

Mountain Landscape Scene Builder Set – Stencil

Stay tuned for our new video which will be released a little later this week!

Candice created a gorgeous scene using the Mysterious Egypt stamp set! All of her images were colored using Copic Markesr with the additional of some gold Gelly Roll accents, and die-cut using the coordinating dies. She made a mini-slimline measuring 6 3/8 x 3 5/8″. The front dotted borders panel was die-cut using one of the rectangle dies from the Cinematic Shadow Box Stand Alone Die which will be showcased later this week. I love how she stamped out the pyramid images with brown ink which really goes well with her blended hilly slopes background. Before adhering her card onto the card base, she ran a bronze paint pen around the edges, which is really cool as it adds some extra shine that matches the gold on the mini characters’ outfits!

Allison’s card is super cool! She used several different blue shades of Ranger alcohol ink on yupo paper, along with some gold mixative. She also pressed gold foil into the alcohol ink piece when it was almost dry so that it would stick to some of the spots that were still wet. I really love how she stamped the camel with versamark ink onto gold card stock and then heat embossed with white powder! The combination of gold cardstock and white power create such a sharp look! And I love the added touch of gemstones! I also love how she placed her other gold heat embossed images diagonally with partial die-cutting!

Finally, we have here my card. I made this slimline pull tab interactive card using the Mysterious Egypt stamp set and the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab stand-alone dies which will be showcased that later this week. Check out my video below or on our YouTube channel to see how I created the desert landscape and the three dimensional sand dunes background using the Desert Scene Builder Dies + Stencil (2 in 1) set! This new set gives you the tools for making beautiful and unique landscapes, especially on slimline cards!

Spring 2021 New Release - Slimline Pull Tab card

Spring 2021 New Release – Sneak Peek Day 4

Spring 2021 New Release Schedule

Hi crafty friends! I’m really excited about today’s Sneak Peeks because today’s card is made with some of my favourite products in this release! As I promised, you’ll see brand new clear stamps that have the “Around the World” theme, and today’s stamp set is themed around….Egypt! Isn’t that the coolest?!

I made this slimline pull tab interactive card using a new stand-alone die set from our release. This set has four different lengths of slit die cuts which you can choose to cut out tracks to form your moving mechanism. Here I wanted the camel to stroll along the desert! This set also includes two slimline rectangle stackables with simple dotted borders that is ideal for all different types of greeting cards!

See the desert landscape and the three dimensional sand dunes background? This was created using the Desert Scene Builder Dies + Stencil (2 in 1) set. This new set gives you the tools for making beautiful and unique landscapes, especially on slimline cards. Stay tuned for our step-by-step tutorial over on our YouTube Channel.

I’d love to know what you think about this card. Leave me a message down below. Be sure to come back tomorrow for more!

Happy crafting everyone!
