A Colorful Interactive Friendship Card by Ashley!

Hello crafty friends! Ashley is back today to share a beautiful friendship card featuring the My BFF stamps set and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts! Check out her full video tutorial HERE!

I love the pinkish inked background that Ashley had created. She used Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar, with a cloudy stencil. For the hillside grassy fields, she used Distress Oxide inks in Lucky Clover and Twisted Citron, together with a grassy stencil. She also used the largest die from the Dots Meets Dashes Large Rectangle Overlays stand-alone die for the boarder detail.

All of the images are from the My BFF stamp set, and were colored with Copic markers. See how some of the images from the set can be used as clouds as well as leaf clusters? I can’t get enough of these cute smiley faces!

I love that she added a wavy slider channel for the kitty in the trolley to glide across the hillside!

She stamped out the sentiment “Thank you for being a great friend” from the set in Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Finally she splattered some sequins to add some extra sparkle to this dreamy scene!

Thank you so much Ashley! This scene is just full of fun and happiness!

Jo’s Coffee-Themed Shaker Card Video

Hi guys! Jo is here today to share a super fun and clever design! She used a combination of our older and newer sets to create this awesome coffee-themed shaker card! You can watch the video below or CLICK HERE to watch it on our YouTube Channel!

To fit the coffee theme, Jo chose a brownish caramel tone for her card panels. I love how she used the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlays stand-alone dies and the Dots Meet Dashes Small Rectangle Overlays stand-alone dies to create the backdrop and her shaker card window. For the shaker elements, she used coffee beans and chocolate chips which are absolutely perfect additions for this card!

She used the cute little couple from The Sweetest Truck stamp set as her main characters. I love that she used the bowls from the Hot Mama stamp set to mimic the coffee cups that the couple is holding in their hands. The stacks of coffee beans are from the There’s No One Like You stamp set.

To add more dynamics to her card, she combined the steamy swirls from There’s No One Like You stamp set and adhered them on top of the coffee cups! The punny sentiment, “You’ve bean the best friend” is the ideal finishing touch to her card!

Thank you so much Jo for inspiring us today with this coffee-themed friendship card!

Thanks for stopping by our blog, have a great weekend!

A Super Sweet Happy Birthday Card by Anja!

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday! Let’s keep up social distancing and continue to connect virtually with friends and family!

Today Anja’s back to share a super sweet Happy Birthday card with us.

Anja die cut some white cardstock with the largest die from the Dots Meet Dashes Large Rectangle Overlay stand alone die to give some nice looking boarder details. She stamped out images were from The Sweetest Truck stamp set, Copic colored them and cut them out using the coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts.

I love that she had both the cute bear server and the little girl looking out the window of the truck.

She blended her background using Mustard See, Spiced Marmalade and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks. These colors go cohesively with her colored images. I love how she masked of a portion on the panel while blending to leave a thick white boarder for some bold contrast.

She then white heat embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment with on black cardstock.

For some final touches, she stamped the tiny starts and hearts in matching inks to create a tone-on-tone effect. She also added some glossy accents over the windows of the truck for some shimmer and shine!

Thank you Anja for sharing this sweet creation! A clean and simple card is always the best!
