A Clean and Simple card with Candice!

Hi everyone! Our Fall/Winter 2021 New Release is just around the corner and I cannot wait to show you what we have to offer!

Candice created this gorgeous card inspired by our current Challenge happening over on our Challenge Blog: Clean and Simple!

She created a cute little scene by stamping the sweet little girl, puppy, and cheese from the Enchanting Paris stamp set and covering each with a mask.

Then she stamped the bench so it would appear in the background – love this idea! The she did some really pretty Copic-colouring on these adorable images!

Finally she added the fun sentiment and some gems to finish off the card!

Thank you Candice for sharing this beautiful creation! I love a sweet simple one layer card!

Travel-Themed Handmade Cards with Allison and Gladys!

Hi guys! It’s been quite a stressful year for many of us, and I cannot wait for things to get better and us to be able to travel again!

Today I’m sharing two travel-themed cards created by our Creative Team members, Allison and Gladys.

Allison combined images from the Fun Adventure stamp set and the Enchanting Paris stamp set to create this gorgeous scene!

She used the Classic Diamonds Backdrop – Stand-Alone Die for her background. I love the white-on-white background and the contrasting black back panel combination. They go so well with the pink and black palette she used for her adorable images!

I just love the idea of the girl going on on a trip with Paris in her thought bubble, super cute! Allison white heat embossed the big bold letters “BON VOYAGE” from Fun Adventure, and she added some black and silver sequins and gems to complete the look!

Next we have Gladys’s card. She made this slimline card to showcase Paris as well!

She used the polaroid die from Twist-n-Pop Surprise – Stand-Alone Die to capture all the beautiful things that Paris has to offer, baked goods, Eiffel tower, and the SHOPPING!!

Using patterned paper, she cut a slimline back panel using one of the dies from the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab – Stand-Alone Die. I love the simple dotted border details! She used the cute images from the Enchanting Paris stamp set and arranged them into her three polaroids. I also love with the soft pastel palette she chose which is so dreamy!!

For her backgrounds, she blended a combination of Distress Oxides including Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass, Mustard Seed, Abandoned Coral, Broken China and Kitsch Flamingo.

Thank you so much Allison and Gladys for sharing your wonderful inspirations! These cards are super adorable!

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend!

Let this stamp set be your inspiration for building a romantic scene! The adorable poodle and the landmarks are just irresistible!

Sidewalk Scene Builder Penguin Perfect Cuts

How adorable is Gladys’s soft-toned slimline card! I love her color choices for the scene, it’s so dreamy! To set the scene, she used the Sidewalk Scene builder Penguin Perfect Cuts for the lower portion of the card. This die cut is really handy for creating street scenes and is a must-have in your craft room! The stamped images were nicely laid out across the panel that was die cut from the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab stand-alone die. Notice the little cut-out details that the garden bench die cut give? She finished off her card with a sweet sentiment!

Ashley created a romantic snowy scene birthday card with this set. She also used the Sidewalk Scene builder Penguin Perfect Cuts to set the scene. I love how she ink-blended it slightly at the bottom with Distress Oxide ink in Tea Dye and that she added a strip of bright green cardstock above it for the pop of color! I’m loving the snowy background! Her images were all arranged onto a slimline card base (3.5×8.5 inches) die cut from the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab stand-alone die. To finish off, she scattered some sequins for the extra sparkle!

Next on our list is the Beautiful Africa set! If you love creating with critters you’re going to fall in love with this set as it’s got some of the cutest animals!

Stephanie has created this fun scene of the safari! The wavy slope was die cut from Desert Landscape Scene builder and splattered with Distress Ink in Ground Espresso. I love the sentiment in this set “Time to soak up the sun” which is super versatile! I love how she gave the little girl and the lion matching color outfits which even coordinate with the color of the jeep! It’s like a little team of safari explorers! And how adorable are the giraffe and the elephant!

Candice used a simple masking technique where she cut a circle from a piece of copy paper and taped it down to her card panel. Next, she used the stamps from the Beautiful Africa set to build her scene directly on the panel for a one-layer card! I love the way she overlaid the images one by one to create depths, so beautifully done!! After stamping out her scene she colored them all with Copics. I just love the colorful scene which really pops over the white background!

Finally I’d like to introduce the Aloha Hawaii stamps set & coordinating dies! This set has some of the cutest images ever! You can create so many different scenes with this set!

Allison made a bright portrait slimline. She cut out her beige panel using the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab die. She also cut out three frames using the Polaroid die cut from the Twist-N-Pop stand-alone die to house her fun images! What a clever way to use this die! Her card is so bright & colorful and full of positive energy!
