Canyon Butterfly Cards
by Angie Cimbalo


Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today and I have two card featuring the new Canyon Butterly die set 94835 and two of the new sentiment dies called Happy Birthday Breezy Script 94782 and Thank You Breezy Script 94780.  Here's a closer look at my first card:


I used two papers from the Brilliant Fuchsia paper pad PP1030, both with dark green and gold patterns.  The center panel is made with A2 Rectangle dies 94672 cut from Woodgrain Paper in White SH44001.  I cut the frame for it from the patterned paper.  I cut the main sections of the butterflies from a 2nd green and gold paper from the same pack, and then used Vintage Pastel Mirror paper pad FP1002 for the gold on the card.  The dies have this beautiful little edge die for the large butterfly along with the butterfly centers, so there are a lot of possibilities with this set.  

Here's one last look at my first card:




Now on to the 2nd card:

Card 2 1

For this card, I used the same butterfly die set but cut them from white card stock and gold paper from the Vintage Pastel Mirror Pack FP1002.  Here's a closer look at my card.

Card 2 3

I used both white sH4401 and kraft SH4403 colors of Woodgrain Paper with the A2 Rectangle Frames die set and also the inside of the green/gold paper that I had left over from the first card.  The "Breezy Script Thank You" die set 94780 was also cut from white and gold and layered, then popped up on foam tape.

Card 2 close

I really like the look I got with the papers and dies and especially those amazing butterflies!  I hope you like my cards for today and will check out the whole new release.  There are so many gorgeous products to see!  Thanks or stopping by!

Thank You Card
by Donna Sledzik


Hello everyone!  Today's card is quick and easy which uses new products from the 2024 Fuchsia release.

I began by ink blending on a white cardstock panel, using Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks.  I spattered the panel with plain water and gold ink.

I used the shadow die from the "Thank You Breezy Script" die set, and die cut it in the middle of the inked panel.  Next, I die cut the Pinpoint Leaf Plate on a larger white cardstock panel, and used foam tape to adhere the inked background to it.

The words "Thank You" were die cut from gold metallic cardstock and glued to the card in the center of the shadow die cut.


The butterfly was die cut from white cardstock and inked with Mustard Seed and Twisted Citron Distress inks.  The body was inked with a black marker.  I used foam tape to adhere it to the card.

I added some clear fairy drops to add a little shine to the card.


That's it for today!  I hope you have a great day!

Happy Birthday Card
by Donna Sledzik


Hello everyone!  Once again, today's card features products from the new 2024 Gladiola Release. 

I began by die cutting the Celeste Plate from one of the foil papers from the new Glimmering Gladiola paper pads.  I glued that to a black cardstock mat, and adhered it to a white card base.

I die cut the Whimsical Gladiola from white cardstock, and used Distress Ink to add color to the die cuts. 

Flowers: Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries

Leaves: Peeled Paint and Forest Moss

Once the die cuts were dry, I glued them together and used foam tape to adhere it to a white cardstock panel that I spattered with gold and black ink.  That panel was glued to a gold metallic cardstock mat and adhered to the card front.


To finish the card, I adhered a Happy Birthday Circle Tab to the card, and that's it!


I hope you were inspired by today's card!  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Card
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_8146 (1)

Happy Thursday everyone!  Today's card features more new products from the Spring Cheer Release.  

I began by creating a background for my card, by die cutting a circle in the middle of a piece of masking paper.  I used Gina K Designs, Masking Magic Paper and Masking Magic Strips.

I placed the die cut masking paper over a white cardstock panel and then adhered 1/8" masking strips across the circle.  I used a blending brush to apply purple inks to the circle. I started with the lightest purple on the top and ended with the darkest purple.


I removed the strips of masking paper, leaving the die cut circle mask in place and lightly inked around the edge of the circle.

I removed the masking paper and glued the background panel to a gold metallic mat.  Next, I used foam tape to adhere it to a white card base.

I die cut the Clara Blooms from white cardstock and used a blending brush to add color to the flowers and leaves.

I arranged the flowers and leaves around the circle and glued them in place.  


To finish the card, I glued a Happy Birthday Foil Strip to the canter of the circle.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hi everyone, today's card features more new products from the new 2024 January Anemone release.  I decided to use the Anemone Bloom as my focal point for my card.

The anemone was die cut from white cardstock and I used Distress Inks to add color to the images.  

Flower: Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks

Leaves: Peeled Paint Distress Ink

Flower Centers: Black Soot Distress Ink

I glued the anemone together and put it aside while I worked on the card background.


I dry embossed cream cardstock using the Anemone Drift 3D embossing folder.  This was glued to a black cardstock mat and then adhered to a cream woodgrain card base.

Using a circle layer die, I die cut a circle from the Anemone Plaid paper pad and glued it to the card.  

Next, I used foam tape to adhere the Anemone Bloom to the card and spattered it with gold ink.

The word "Greetings" was die cut from gold metallic cardstock and the shadow from black cardstock.  I glued the word to the black shadow die cut and used foam tape to adhere it to the card.


To add some interest to the card, I finished by adding some black embellishments to it.

Thanks foe stopping by today and have a great week!

Birch Tree Forest Cardinal
by Trina Pham


Hello everyone.  Keeping the bird theme going, I have a vintage brown and red Christmas card to share today featuring the Layered Cardinal die and Birch Tree Forest embossing folder (EF) from the current 2023 Christmas release

The Layered Cardinal, Classic Pine Needle Sprigs and pine cones were all die cut from white paper then ink blended with distress inks (DI) using blending brushes:

reds - Abandoned Coral, Lumberjack Plaid
brown - Gathered Twigs
black - Black Soot
yellow - Fossilized Amber


The background was created by “stamping” with the EF.  Inked the flat side of the EF with Brushed Corduroy and Gathered Twigs DI, spritz with water then pressed onto watercolor paper.  Just like you would for the stencil monoprint technique, except with an EF… so EF monoprint! 🤗


Left the panel to air dry then trimmed down to A2 size before black heat embossing the sentiment from Shining Star with clear glitter embossing powder directly on the panel for a bit of sparkle.  Assembled the card onto a white card base to finish.

That does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

Gold & Plaid Gracious Floral Collection
by Angie Cimbalo

So kind main

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today!   I have this fun plaid "Thank You" card I made for a friend using the newly released "Gracious Floral" products.

To make my card I took the center floral die and cut it from a piece of polished gold paper that was attached to a piece of card stock.  That paper is quite thin so to get a deeper impression later when I emboss it, I want it to be thicker.  After the shape was cut out, I opened the 3D embossing folder and ran it through my die cutting machine.  It gave the flower lovely dimension as you can see in the picture below.
I cut a piece of plaid paper to add the the bottom of the card base and then topped it with a thin strip of gold and another thin strip of black card stock.  The sentiment from the Gracious Floral stamp set, was heat embossed in white on black card stock.  I added the gold flower and sentiment to the card with foam tape and glue.  Here's another look:

So kind close

I made one more card using the Memory Box papers and the gold polished foil and here it is:
Gold hugs
The paper is from the Magnolia Grove and I used the large floral die from the stamp set to cut the image out and then ran it through my die cutting machine with the 3D embossing folder.  The sentiment is a 2 piece die called Hugs Tender Script.  It's so shiny in real life!
I hope you like my cards for today.  I really like how it turned out.  Be sure to come back tomorrow for some more inspiration!
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday
by Donna Sledzik


Good morning everyone!  Today I have a monochromatic card for you using the new Gracious Floral Stamp set.

I began by stamping the Gracious Floral several times on white cardstock to create a background and then used colored pencils to fill in the stamped images.  I added some shading around the images with a gray marker.  


I spattered the background with black ink and mounted the background to a black cardstock mat.   Using foam tape, I adhered it to a white card base.

Next, I die cut the words Happy Birthday from silver foil cardstock and glued it to a black shadow die cut.  I glued this to the center of the card.


To finish the card I added Black Nuvo Drops to the flower centers and the card background.

That's it for today!  Thanks for stopping by.
