To kick-off things, we would like to showcase the new The More We Get Together stamp set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts. This set is one of the collaboration sets created with Laugh and Belly.

This stamp set is ideal for the most unique friendship cards and just because cards! These super cute underwater creatures will make the most adorable scenes! Whether you enjoy making simple cards using just a couple of images from the set, or you’re like me who love creating fuller and bigger scenes with plenty of images, this set will give you endless possibilities!

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.

Next we would like to showcase the new My BFF stamps set and its coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

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.

A big Thank-You to our wonderful and talented Creative Team! Head over to their blogs for more details on these cards.

A Happy Disco Dancing Scene with Anja!

Hi friends! Today Anja has in store for us a beautiful and clever scene, created from the Home Sweet Home stand-alone die, and the Fun Night Out stamps  and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

She stamped out all of her images and colored them with Spectrum Noir markers. Always love a little white gel pen accent!

She used the Cross Stitched and Dots Small Rectangle Overlay stand alone dies to cut out the frame for this card. I love how she used the Home Sweet Home stand alone die to create a scene of inside a pub – how clever!

I love the night sky blended using Chipped Saphire Distress Oxide Ink with the touch of gold splatter ink mimicking a starry night! For the wallpaper inside the pub she chose Victorian Velvet over the Cyber Wallpaper stencil. She then used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink for blending the floor.

To finish, she stamped out the sentiment “Let’s Wiggle and Giggle All Night” with VersaMark ink and white heat embossed it on dark blue cardstock.

The critters were adhered to the card with foam tape for the added dimension.

Thank you so much Anja! This card is so clever and lovely!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

A Vibrant DJ Scene with Ashley E.!

A big hello to all crafty friends! Today Ashley E. has in store a super bright and colourful card to share with you all!

Ashley’s card showcases the cool DJ Kitty from the Fun Night Out stamp set. The image was colored with Copic markers and die cut using its coordinating Fun Night Out coordinating dies. I love the rainbow hue she has for her background. It is so vibrant and striking.

Masking out the bottom half of the card, she used Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Lucky Clover, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet for blending the upper portion of the card. I love how she colored the kitty’s mohawk and sunglasses in rainbow hue as well, and they blend cohesively with the background.

The bold black sentiment pops up nicely in the white area. The white heat embossed words “SHAKE” and the little music notes are just the perfect accessories to add to spice up the background.

Thanks so much Ashley for this dramatically good looking card!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Fun Night Out Creation with Anja!

Hi crafty friends! Anja is back with us to share her cool card featuring our Fun Night Out stamp set and coordinating dies!

Anja built her scene using a mix of the images from the set. She’s got the little kitty DJ at the back, the cute puppies couple dancing away at the dance floor at the front. They are looking so happy!

I love that she added the accessories images of the bar table/chair, with the beer and snacks. I also love how she added the glass of margarita in the puppy’s hand and the bottle of beer in the kitty DJ’s hand!

I love the way she composed her card as if there’s an elegant picture frame holding a perfect picture in it!

Thank you Anja for your inspiration, I really love this card!
