Party Balloons Sneak Peek!!

Hello, friends and welcome!! Today, I’m giving you a little sneak peek at one of the new sets that is being released next week!! This is one you’ll want in your stash as birthday cards are one of the most needed cards!!

This is a super cute layering set that lets you create super cute balloons! I chose a more masculine colour palette for my card, using black and teal. I cut 4 of the medium sized Cloudy Frames Dies and layered them together to create a bit of dimension on this card.

Before adhering the frame to a panel cut with the largest of the Stitched Rectangles Set 2 Dies, I adhered the top right balloon so it would peek out from under the frame. After everything was glued down, I stamped the sentiment as well as some confetti with black ink.

I added shimmer pen to the balloons as well as dots to the confetti for some sparkle and shine, which is exactly what a birthday card needs!

I hope you enjoyed my little peek at what’s coming your way!! Stay tuned for tons more inspiration from my talented design team members!!

See you later!

Rainbow Balloons Celebrate Card | Sneak Peeks!

Hello everyone! It’s Ashley back on the blog today and today is the first day of sneak peeks for the March release! This release comes out on March 20th. I am sharing a card created with the new Party Balloons stamp set and the Celebrate die set!

I started by stamping the balloons in a rainbow of colors and then cut them out with the coordinating die set.

Next I die cut the celebrate sentiment out of white and glitter white cardstock. I glued the glitter word on top of the white one to create some dimension. I then cut the shadow die out of black cardstock and glued the dimensional word to that.

I glued half of the balloons to a piece of white cardstock with liquid glue and the other half with foam tape. I then used an acrylic block to stamp the strings of the balloons in a light gray ink. I then glued the die cut sentiment on top of the balloons.

I created a card base out of a light gray cardstock and then glued my balloon panel onto that. To finish up the card I added a few sequins.

Check back tomorrow for even more sneak peeks from the upcoming release!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday – March Sneak Peek

Hello Everyone,

It is Zsofia here with a little sneak peek at the upcoming March Release. I can tell you, it is a festive one! On my card today I feature the Party Balloons stamp set and the Birthday Script dies.

I stared with a piece of heavy weight white cardstock and applied Distress inks at a diagonal: Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves and Blueprint sketch. When I was happy with the blending, I spritzed it with a clear shimmer spritz for a subtle sparkle. I die cut the panel with the largest of the Stitched Rectangle 2 die set and arranged the bold balloons on the distressed background.

Using the rock’n roll stamping technique I added 2 shades of the already used distress inks on each balloon for an ombre effect. Distress inks are not meant for stamping so i repeated the process a few times for a darker and smoother result. I used my heat tool to completely dry the background as I wanted to silver heat emboss the patterns on each balloon.

The next step is the sentiment: I die cut the Happy Birthday script from silver sparkle and black cardstock and layered them on top of each other tiny offset. I adhered the words on the stamped panel and embellished it with silver glossy dots.

I wanted a bit more black as a frame so I used a black and white chevron patterned paper from the Spring Color Pop pad.

I hope you like my inspiration for today and will check back later on for more fun projects with the March release!

See you,

Easter inspiration

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with a little Easter cuteness. These adorable critters from Sketched Easter are just simply darling, I love to colour them and build little scenes.

I started with stamping and colouring the images. I used Copic markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies.

I created a mini scene on a white banner which i die cut with the Thin Fish Tail Banner set. I cut a small edge also from green patterned paper (Jolly Paper Pad) as it will be the grass an used the same paper scrap for some branches too which I got from the Spring Wreath Decor die set. In the same set there are several little flowers dies too, I cut them out from orange and yellow cardstocks.

After assembling the scene I stamped the sentiment with green ink and mounted the banner on an A2 sized patterned paper piece (Be brave Paper Pad) using 3D foam tape.

As a finishing touch I used a black glaze pen on the eyes of the critters and added golden glossy dots to the flowers.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post and got some inspiration for your Easter cards. Until next time, happy crafting!

Sweet Bouquets That Shake Things Up

Hey everyone. It’s Dana here with you today. I love making cute jar shaker cards. If you’ve missed my one I posted a few weeks ago you can check it out here. So with that being said, I worked up a shaker card for the Sweet Bouquets stamps and dies.

I started off by stamping out my sweet bouquet on watercolor paper and die cut it out with the coordinating dies. I pulled out my zig markers and did some simple watercoloring. Once I had everything nicely colored I moved onto the jar. I stamped out one jar from the Pretty Jars stamp set twice and die cut one out with the coordinating die cut. I then took a crafting knife and cut the center out of one jar to create my opening for the shaker bits. I added acetate to the back of the jar, filled the jar up with sequins, added thin pieces of double sided foam tape around the jar and closed it up with the other die cut jar. Then a cut a slit in the top of the jar and inserted my flowers. I added double sided foam tape to the flowers to keep the height of the jar and flowers the same.

Next I used some glue and adhered this piece to some designer paper from the Spring Flings 6×6 paper pad. All that was left was to add this panel to a white card base. For some sparkle I pulled out my Birthday Girl glossy dots and added a few to the panel. Lastly I stamped out a sentiment on matching paper and die cut it out the a banner from the Sweet Bouquet dies.

Here is a closeup of the card. If you don’t have time to make a shaker card, you could easily just color the bouquet and just a a ribbon to the stem. It would still make a stunning card.

Thanks for stopping by today. Another design team member will be back with more inspiration. Have a great day everyone.
