She started with a pop-up shadow box die from Lawn Fawn as the basic structure of this box. She added some yellow patterned papers to the faces of the box as accents. I love how she removed the front flap, cut a panel at the front of the box and added a piece of acetate as the window.
I love how she positioned the cute images at different depths; some were just behind the window, while some were adhered at the very back. The kitty blowfish near the centre portion was the focal point and she choice a sentiment “You Blow Meow Away!” – so cute!
She also added a piece of wavy cardstock in front of the blowfish as if it was just swimming to the surface! The whole card came together so nicely!
We hope you enjoy Anja‘s pop-up box card! Thank so much Anja, your card is so amazing!
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!

Now let’s check out some amazing samples from our talented Creative Team!
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 Anja’s creation. I love how she had the little fish peeking out from coral reefs! So cute! I love how she stamped out the seaweeds multiple times to decorate her scene. This card is so bright and alive!
Next we have Jo’s card. We’re so excited to welcome Jo to our Creative Team! Jo is super talented and she will have so much more amazing videos to show everyone in the coming weeks! She created a gorgeous shaker card with this set. I love the way she set up her shaker card into three tires, and decorated the panel with the colorful images. It looks super awesome!
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!
