Exquisite Fanciful Birthday
by Trina Pham

IMG_6049

Hello everyone.  I have a super simple birthday card to share today to round out the last two remaining dies from the 2024 Gladiola collection that I have not used yet.

The Fanciful Gladiola and Exquisite Butterflies were die cut from white cardstock and ink blended with dye inks; turquoise for the flowers, green for the foliage and Wilted Violet/Blueprint Sketch distress inks for the butterflies.

The sentiment was hot foiled with white foil on black cardstock then die cut out using the Modest Greetings 1 hot foil and die set from Poppy Stamps.  Arranged and assembled the card onto a white card base to finish.

Easy-peasy… and that does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

Anemone Bird House
by Trina Pham

IMG_4946

Hello everyone.  It may be Valentine’s Day, but my card is not. 😂   I have a simple card with all the spring feels to share today using  Anemone Blooms and Elegant Anemone dies from the Anemone collection with the Woodgrain Bird House and Leaf Bunches  dies from the 2023 Christmas collection.  

All pieces were die cut from white cardstock paper and ink blended with dye inks using blending brushes.  Wilted Violet and Stormy Sky distress inks (DI) were used for the anemone flowers, Black Soot DI was used for shading on the bird house and two gradient green color dye inks from Altenew were used for the leaf bunches. 

IMG_4958

Trimmed a 3/8” strip from white woodgrain paper for the bird house post and added shading to it as well using Black Soot DI.  Lightly ink blended Milled Lavender DI to the bottom of an A2 size Bristol panel before assembling the card onto a white card base.  I was going to leave the card blank, but went digging in my bits bag and found this Poppy Stamp gold foil Modest Greetings 1 sentiment that works nicely for many occasions.

Well, that does it for my card.  Get ready for a brand new release tomorrow.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

Merry Christmas with Poinsettia Rub-Ons
by Angie Cimbalo

1

Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with a quick and easy Christmas card using items from the newest 2023 Christmas release.  These beautiful watercolored poinsettias and leaves and berries are all from the new "Poinsettia Rub-On's" and they are so gorgeous especially in real life.  

I filled the card front with different images and I must say the Memory Box rub-ons are the easiest I have ever used.  They rub on easily and don't tear making them turn out beautifully!

Once I had all the rub ons in place, I added one of the new ST1003 Merry Christmas Foil Greeting Black Tabs.  These are thick pre-printed, foiled sentiments that are gorgeous and have the Merry Christmas sentiment in many different type fonts so you can find just the look you want for your cards.

Here's a closer look at my card:

Lastly I added a few gold jewels from the Christmas Fairy Jewel pack to the card front.  I hope you like my card and check out all the new goodies in the release.  There are dies, embossing folders, stamps, some beautiful papers along with the products I used for today's card.  Come back each day for more inspiration from the design team.

Gracious Floral Birthday
by Trina Pham

IMG_2488

Hello everyone.  I needed a birthday card and created this simple card using all three products from the June 2023 Gracious Floral collection. 

The floral image was stamped with Fade Out ink on white cardstock for a no-line coloring look.  Used the coordinating stencils and a couple of gradient dye ink colors in blue, green and gray to color the image.  Die cut the image out with the coordinating die next, then ran it through the die cutting machine in the coordinating embossing folder.

IMG_2489

Cut the image apart into two, adhered on opposite corners on a white woodgrain panel, and trimmed off the overhangs.  The sentiment from Poppy Stamps Modest Greetings 1 Hot Foil Plate & Die was hot foiled with gold foil.  Die cut it out with the rectangle strip die included in the set and matte it to gold Vintage Pastel mirror cardstock.  Assembled the card to finish.

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

Haunting Witch Hat
by Trina Pham

IMG_1946

Hello everyone.  I have a simple Halloween card to share featuring the Large Layered Witch Hat die from the current 2023 Fall release.  

The hat/shadow pieces were die cut from dark grey cardstock while the band was die cut from light grey cardstock.  For dimension, the hat/shadow pieces were shaded with dark grey and black dye inks using a detail foam blending tool.  Dimension for the band was achieved by die cutting it out a couple more times and stacking them together.  Assembled the hat then spritz with a shimmer spray for a bit of sparkle.  

IMG_1947

The background is purple cardstock hot foiled with White Opaque hot foil and the Spiral hot foil plate using Spellbinders Glimmer hot foil machine.  To enhance the tunnel-like effect, the spotlight ink blending technique was done with Villainous Potion distress ink (DI) blended around the center (center left untouched) and Black Soot DI blended around the edges.  The sentiment was white heat embossed on black cardstock then fussy cut out.   Assembled the card onto a split black/white card base.  Added some purple Autumn Fairy Crystals to finish.

IMG_1948

I can create Christmas cards any time of the year, but Halloween cards in July was a tough one for me. 😂   Thank you for joining me today.   Have a wonderful week.

Hello Magnolia Card
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_4940

Hello everyone!  Here's another card for you today featuring new products from the Magnolia Release.

IMG_4942

I began by die cutting one of the Curved Pinpoint Layers from patterned paper.  I glued it in the center of a white cardstock panel.  Next, I adhered it to a black cardstock mat and glued it to a white card base.

I die cut the Magnolia Blooming Bud from white cardstock, and used Distress Oxide Inks to add color to them.

IMG_4939

I glued the die cuts together and used foam tape to adhere the flower to the card.

I hot foiled the word Hello and used foam tape to adhere it to the card.  

Next, I spattered the card with gold ink and added some fairy crystals to add a little bling.

That's it for today!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Rectangle Duo Border Birthdays
by Trina Pham

084B10E5-E88E-4534-90E0-233054CE56B9
Hello and happy Easter!  No Easter card today.  Instead I used the Rectangle Duo Border hot foil plate two ways to create two simple birthday cards.

EE667BAA-F7F6-479F-91C6-3B4353DAC905

On this first card, the hot foil plate foiled the double line frame as it is intended using gold hot foil.

7713338A-02CC-43F0-8869-A04073B56DBE

The peonies were die cut from white cardstock and colored with Shaded Lilac distress ink using a finger blending brush.  The leaves were colored with YG61, YG63 and YG67 Copic Sketch markers.  For some sparkle, spritz the peonies with a shimmer spray.

AE7EE3BD-92F5-4D68-B042-CDE2302BE2F2

On the second card, the hot foil plate was flipped and the backside was foiled resulting in a thick solid frame.  It doesn’t foil as cleanly and it took a few tries to get this result… but it worked and is one way to stretch your hot foil plate.  😉

ABBA7439-1CD3-4E57-AC7A-B2A36E7B28E5

Kept it really simple as a masculine card and did some partial hot foiling with the Confetti Dot hot foil plate.  Heat embossed the sentiments with gold embossing powder on both cards to finish. 

6F6A87B3-CBE0-47AE-9131-94D2702B6B69

No matter what I tried, I could not get another decent photo of the confetti card. 🤷🏻‍♀️   Anyway. Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful day.

Hugs
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_4359

Hello everyone!  I have a bright and cheery card for you today, featuring some new products from the Spring release.  

IMG_4361

I started by stamping and coloring the flowers with copic markers and die cutting them. I used gold ink to spatter the flower die cut.

The copic colors I used are as follows:

  • Flowers - R20, R32, and R37
  • Leaves - G24, G94
  • Berries and flower center - Y11, Y19

I took the Rectangle Double Border hot foil plate and hot foiled a piece of Bristol paper with Gold hot foil using the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil Machine.  Then I die cut the foiled frame with one of the A2 Rectangle Frames, mounted that on a black cardstock mat, and glued that to a white cardstock mat.  I matted this piece with black cardstock and adhered it to a white card base.

I used foam tape to glue them to the card front.

I die cut the word "hugs" from gold foil cardstock and the shadow from green cardstock and glued these to the card.

That's my card for today!  I hope you have a great week!

Plumed Gypsy Butterfly
by Trina Pham

D72078EC-F19C-4672-AA57-2E769A341AAB

Hello everyone.  With spring a couple days away in the northern hemisphere, I have a spring card to share using products from the 2023 February collection.

Took the Rectangle Double Border hot foil plate and hot foiled a piece of Bristol paper with Silver Holographic Speckle hot foil using the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System.  Trimmed the piece to 4”x5.25”, then die cut the center out with a rectangle die from Rectangle Basics.  The new A2 Rectangle Frames set co-ordinates with this hot foil plate set and makes a nice tight cut to the foiled border lines, but I wanted more space from the foiled lines.  Next, the Plumed Gypsy Butterfly was die cut from Bristol paper and the back pieces were inked with Shaded Lilac distress ink (DI).  The top detailed layer was die cut twice to stack for dimension.

A26F6416-1C0B-4CCC-B8CB-0E8D0EF30EE3

The Floral Bud and Stems were die cut from alcohol marker friendly cardstock and coloured with Copic Sketch markers.  The background piece showing through the frame is also Bristol paper ink blended with Salvaged Patina DI. The Hello Rush Script sentiment was die cut twice from thick white paper and once from silver foil paper and stacked.  

F5CAC05F-8684-4C79-B414-9B17C04FD1BE

Assembled the card onto a white card base, popping the frame up with foam adhesive, to finish.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful weekend.
