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!

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!

This key chain is super adorable and features one of our favourite characters from the Rabbit Café stamp set! So take advantage of this awesome deal while supplies last!

Please continue to visit our blog for the rest of the week for some fun and awesome projects from our talented Creative Team and myself. Today we have 2 more stand-alone die to showcase so let’s get to it! If you missed our Day 1 Intro + Giveaway, click HERE so you don’t miss out!

Today’s first showcase is the Cinematic Shadow Box stand-alone dies. Unlike other smaller shadow boxes you’ve seen, this die set allows you to create a much wider box to house even more adorable characters for the perfect scene!  With the background panel plus 4 nos. of insert tabs, you can have as many as 5 layers in your shadow box with the 2″ depth! How awesome is that?!

Check out this amazing scene Ashley created with this Cinematic Shadow Box! Her background was ink blended beautifully using Distress Oxide inks in Crackling Campfire, Wild Honey and Fossilized Amber with a touch of gold splatter. She placed her adorable images from the Beautiful Africa stamp set on the four insert tabs. She stamped out a sweet sentiment from the set onto the front decorative panel. This card is super fun and vibrant!

Stephanie designed this card with the idea of a Luau in mind. I love how she added the wavy slopes (die cut from the Desert Landscape Scene Builder dies) to the insert tabs. She also used the Mountain Landscape Scene Builder die to add the mountains silhouette on her back panel! The cute images from Aloha Hawaii stamp set were arranged on the different levels of the Cinematic Shadow Box. What an awesome scene!

Candice used images from the Beautiful Africa stamp set for her shadow box. I love how she ink blended her two side panels and all of the 5 insert tabs with Distress Oxide Ink in Cracked Pistachio to achieve the green forest look! The blue sky was also beautifully blended. The punny sentiment “You Are Ele-Phantastic” finished off the card perfectly!

I made my shadow box using stamps from Bond With Nature Canada. The best thing about this card is that the completed shadow box folds flat to fit a slimline #9 or #10 envelope! Do you see the stitched rocky mountains at the back of the card? These were created using the Mountain Landscape Scene Builder Dies + Stencil set! This new 2 in 1 set gives the perfect way for creating beautiful landscapes.

As promised, please click HERE to watch the step by step video on our YouTube Channel!

The next product we’d like to showcase today is the Dotted Borders Slimline Pull Tab stand-alone dies! This set has four different lengths of slit die cuts you can choose from to cut out tracks to form the moving mechanism. This set also includes two slimline rectangle stackables with neat and simple dotted borders that is ideal for all different types of greeting cards!

Allison made an incredible scene using the images from Beautiful Africa. She colored all images with Copics. I love how she altered the images of the jeep and the little girl, combined them with the pull tab mechanism to make it look like she was cruising in the jeep – how clever! I also like how she layered the trees for the added dimension. To finish off she added a super sweet sentiment “I love you, no lion”!

Gladys’s card is super adorable. I love how she arranged her pull tab to make the lion (from Beautiful Africa) appear from behind the bush! It sure will put a smile on the recipient’s face! I also adore the soft-tone she adopted, which adds a special warm vibe to this safari scene!

If you’ve been following since our Sneak Peeks, you would have seen my card above. I created a desert scene with images from Beautiful Africa. The three dimensional sand dunes were created using the Desert Landscape Scene Builder Dies & Stencil Set. This new set gives you the tools for making beautiful and unique landscapes, especially on slimline cards. I adhered the camel to my pull tab to make it stroll along the desert!

New Video – Stencils 360° Two-For-One technique with Ashley!

Happy Monday friends! Today Ashley is back to inspire us with a gorgeous duo of cards featuring the Summer Blossom Stencils 360°TM.

Using the 7 1/2 x 7 1/2″ Paper Positioner as a guide, Ashley centred her 7 1/2 x 9″ white cardstock panel in the center of the Stencils 360°TM tool. She chose a turning interval of 30° for the stencil throughout her ink blending process. This is easily achieved by making references to the ‘circle’ symbols on The Base of the tool.

She used a different colored Distress Oxide ink during each rotation, namely, Tattered Rose, Dried Marigold, Antique Linen, Bundled Sage, Stormy Sky and Dusty Concord, to create this beautiful rainbow hue on the canvas!

By cutting the big panel in half directly down the middle, she made two cards of identical size. She then further cut them using a slimline rectangle die.

On the first card, she used the Never Lose Hope die cut with some sparkly silver cardstock. To finish off, she used some small hearts die-cuts for some extra sparkle!

The sentiment “I’m Beyond Grateful to have a friend like you” on her second card was from Words from the Heart (Chapter 2) stamp set.

Don’t forget to watch her step by step video tutorial over on our YouTube Channel!

We hope you’re inspired by today’s cards, thank you for stopping by. Thank you so much Ashley for your charming creations!
