Hi there everyone! Ashley is sharing a quick and easy encouragement card featuring products from our earliest releases!
To build her background, Brutus Monroe Glitter Glaze in a red colour was applied through the Rain of Hearts stencil onto a piece of red cardstock. While that dried, images from the Get Well Soon stamp set were stamped in black ink and coloured with Copic markers. She had a few sentiments of her own from My Favourite Things, and cut them into a couple strips.
The dried hearts panel was glued onto a red card base with a red patterned paper border. The images and sentiment banners were adhered to the card front with foam squares.

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!
I love her sky background which was inked up using Distress Oxide Ink Pink Spun Sugar and Dusty Concord. The ocean was blended using Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers. The splash of bright white ink added a little more depth to the ocean.
She chose the white embossing paste as the medium with the Crystal Snowflakes Stencil on her blended sky, to create the perfect dreamy snowy scene! The pretty music notes are from the Fun Night Out stamp set, while the pretty mermaid is from the Get Well Soon stamp set.
I love the light pastel colors for all her characters and the whole card comes together so well in this sunset/dusk scene.
Thank you Davina for this fun card! Besides the cute images, I really love the balloons and hats accessories and the happy vibe of this card!
I just love this card so much! Ashley used the Rain of Hearts stencil and alcohol ink for her background. I love how the hearts are subtly appearing from the blue inked background. The background really mimics the look of the deep blue sea.
She gave the mermaid in green a rose, as if she’s going to give it to the sick mermaid as a present, so cute!
I love the way she coloured the hair on both mermaids, so detailed. The jewel embellishments give the card some great finishing touches.
