Hi everyone, Svetlana made this vibrant Happy New Year card!
The snowflakes on the back are from Pink Winter Stamp Set. Such adorable card.
Thanks everyone! Happy Monday!
Hello! Anna is here today with my new Christmas card, where I played with Origami Winter stamp set. I chose red and blue palette for this card and it really looks so festive!
I started with the white embossing of all origami stamps from the set on the light gray cardstock. After this I colored them with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Using of not-white cardstock allows you to brighten elements on the background – you can see the outer embossed silhouettes.
Then I stamped the sentiment from the same set – Origami Winter – using StazOn inks (these are better when stamping on heat embossed elements). And at the end I cut of the background with the tag die and adhered it with the foam tape to the woodgrain cardstock.
And of course I added some final touches at the end with Snowflakes and Light Blue Metallic Sequins in size 4 mm and 5 mm.
Have a good day!
Happy Saturday everyone,
We had more snow in the past couple of days. I simply refuse to accept the fact that winter has arrived. With Halloween around the corner this is a perfect time to compete a few cards to give to kids.
Background was created with distress inks in (Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, Blueprint Sketch, Scattered Straw and Black Soot) while it was drying I’ve added iridescent embossing powder for shimmering stars effect.
I die cut a double speech bubble and used Spooky Duo Talk and Duo Talk Sets to create a sentiment. These mice are so adorable!! Quick color with zig markers added a few foam dots and adhered them to the card. I’ve also added a little bit of versamark on edges of the speech bubble and used Iridescent Charcoal embossing powder so the speech bubble doesn’t stand out and blends in with the background.
Added a cat and a pumpkin from Wicked Fusion and the card is complete.
Thank You all for stopping by!
Hi everyone, today I’m sharing a simple and fast last minute gift holder cards. As you all remember last week was World Teacher’s Day and I’ve made these cards for Lev to take to his teachers.
For the background I used Perfectly Plaid Fall Paper, such fabulous colors. I used the largest the rectangle die to cut put the base and used a Stitched Notebook Die to cut out the center. The stitched notebook die has stitching all around and it’s perfect for window card.
I used negative space to to cut out the center on all cards, and trimmed off the top to make a straight line.
Happy Thursday Everyone!
Valentyna here today and I am sharing this traditional Christmas card, I made using another wonderful stamp set Origami Winter. Absolutely enjoyed creating this card. The process wasn’t quick. I stamped many times gifts and stars with Versa Fine Onyx Black ink onto Neenah Solar White 80lb paper. Then I colored and cut every element, to be able to put them all onto an embossed white panel.
For the sentiment, I chose “happy holidays” saying from the same stamp set. I simply embossed it with Hero Arts white embossing powder on SSS black card stock. To finish my card, I added some Classic Christmas Sequins here and there.
Thank you for stopping by!

The moment I saw this set I knew I wanted to color these origami images in holiday colors.
Next I colored all images with my COPICs. I choose two shades of green, red and gray to color different parts of origami. And some I left uncolored, in order not to make it too busy.
I cut a stitched rectangle out of the panel using die from MFT Blueprints 29. Next I adhered my origami panel to an A2 top folding red card base using adhesive foam squares. I didn’t much volume on a card (like no volume at all) and wanted to add some interest raising it with dimensional adhesive. To finish off my card I added a white embossed sentiment on a stripe of black cardstock and called it a day.
This card is not very typical for me. Too much COPICs coloring, usually I don’t do it. So colorful and design is not mine I should say. I’m glad that somehow I did it. Don’t have many of such in my stash
Thank you so much for joining me today! Have a wonderful day!
I really like an apple and the many ways it can be used, but my favorite part is sentiment, actually, font. It does fit perfectly the stamp theme.
I started my card off by a die-cutting watercolor panel and note tag. Then I stamped apples and A’s. For coloring, I used Distress Fired Brick and Peeled Paint inks, and a little bit off Broken China. The note tag I adhered with 3D foam to watercolored panel. Red sequins to finish.
Thank you for stopping by!
Erica here and I couldn’t be happier to share a couple of cards with you all! I hope you are as excited as I am about this new release. Let’s get to it, shall we?
Today I’m sharing two cards I made with the new Teacher’s Apple stamp set and the stitched Stitched Duo Speech Bubble Creative Die. These are so cute and that stamp set? It’s such a darling. As soon as I saw that apple, I knew I would use it over and over. And I really have! 19 times for these two cards alone. Oh yes, 19. I counted.
I wanted to different looks for these cards whilst using the apple as the focus. I also wanted to watercolour again. As always, I started out by cutting out two A2 sized stitched rectangles with the Lawn Fawn die cuts in water colour paper. Next, I stamped three rows of four apples on one panel in VersaMark ink and heat embossed them with Ranger Ink white embossing powder. My idea was to have two apples in a different colour to the rest and they were going to say ‘To a Special Teacher‘ and ‘You’re a Good Apple’ to each other. Super corny but cute, right? What teacher wouldn’t like that?
Once all the apples were stamped and heat embossed, I die cut the new Stitched Duo Speech Bubble Creative Dies and measured it on the card to make sure it would fit. The two middle bottom row apples ended up being the best fit, or actually the only fit as it turned out. That could have been a craft-disaster! The two chosen apples got faces stamped and I decided they would be green and the rest red. I got the ZIG Gansai Tambi 36 Colours out and coloured away to my hearts content. I kept the colouring quite loose on the apples to make them look natural.
While the first one was drying, I started on the second card. I already had my panel cut and ready to go. To start, I stamped a few apples to look like they had been stacked up in a big harvest pile on the base of the panel and I heat embossed those, again using white embossing powder. Then I stamped out another few using distress inks in reds and green to do some no-line colouring. These apples were then fussy cut and piled on top of the others using foam tape to raise them up from the others.
In the top left corner I stamped the ‘You’re a good’ sentiment in black and the ‘apple’ bit in red to make it pop. I debated long and hard over sequins or not on these cards and usually I’m all for them. However, I kept these sequin-free (shock horror!!) mostly to challenge myself to not be such a one-trick pony with my embellishments. If I make more of these cards, I will probably add a few…. Just one or two… Or five..
Before I loose the plot completely, I’m going to say bye for now with a full picture and I hope that these cards have inspired you to get this set or try one of these techniques.
See you soon!
To start off I made die cuts with Stitched Loops die out of white, yellow and orange cardstock for the outer part and black cardstock for insides.
Next stamped and colored many candy corns using a stamp from Spooky Duo set.
I embossed a white panel using an impression plate and started assembling the shaker. The dimensional part of which I made multi colored, as the candy corn is. There you can find white, then yellow and finally orange layer. I put candy corns into the top section of the shaker, googly eyes into the middle (these eyes are so tiny and adorable) and sequins fusion into the bottom.
I adhered my panel onto a black card base, adding strips of the same orange and yellow cardstock on the bottom. It kind of put the whole design together.
To finish off my card I added a sentiment, white embossed on a stripe of black cardstock and several sequins.
If you follow me for a while you may notice that I don’t do many fun cards. Neither I do many shakers. I don’t even know why. But they’re so much fun to make!
My hubby, who dislikes Halloween by the way, when saw this card told me that it was so cool. I don’t hear it from him very often lol. Not because he doesn’t like my cards, he likes all of them by default. But I think the interactive element of this one made him to express some extra emotions
Thank You All!
