Gracious Floral Birthday
by Trina Pham


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.


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.

Hello Card
by Donna Sledzik


Hello everyone! Today I have a Fall themed card for you featuring new products from the new 2023 Fall Release.  

I used the "Autumn Pumpkin" as a vase for my fall foliage arrangement.  The pumpkin was die cut from orange cardstock and the foliage from green, yellow and orange cardstock.  They were all inked with coordinating Distress Inks.


The background panel was dry embossed using the new "Fanciful Glided Frame" on aqua cardstock.  I inked the edges with Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks, and  adhered the panel to an Ivory cardstock card base.


Next, I used foam tape on the bottom portion of the pumpkin and adhered it to the background panel.  I tucked in all the foliage pieces and glued them in place. 

I spattered the background with gold ink.

The word "Hello" was gold foiled, die cut, and glued to the pumpkin.


To finish the card, I adhered some Autumn Fairy Crystals to add a little shine.

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

Haunting Witch Hat
by Trina Pham


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.  


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.


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.

Just For You
by Donna Sledzik


Hello everyone!  Today's card features products from the new Gracious Floral release.  I love the stamp, layering stencils and die combination for the floral image.

I began by stamping and die cutting the Gracious Floral image.  Next, I used small blending brushes, dye inks and the layering stencils to color in the image.


I used white cardstock and the Ringadings 3D Embossing folder to create the background for the card.  I adhered the embossed background to a gold metallic cardstock mat and glued it to a white card base.

I created the gold frame behind the floral image by hot foiling one of the Rectangle Double Border Hot Foil Frames.  I die cut the frame using the Rectangle Frames Die Set.  I glued this to the embossed card background and used foam tape to adhere the floral image.


I stamped the sentiment with Versa Mark ink and gold heat embossed it.  I used foam tape to adhere it to the card.

I hope you have a great day and that's for stopping by!

Two Cards- Freshwater Fish & Confetti Dot Hot Foil Plate
by Angie Cimbalo


Hello and welcome, it's Angie here today with two cards featuring new products from the latest release.  

My first card is a slimline card using two fish from the combination "Freshwater Fish" stencil and embossing folder set.  The background for my card was ink blended with lots of blues.  Once it dried, I ran it through my hot foil machine using the "Confetti Dot" hot foil plate and some gold foil.  Here's a closer look:


I colored the fish with Distress Inks and watercolor markers and then fussy cut them out.  Next I splashed some water on the background to make more dots on it.  I added the two fish and then a sentiment from "You Anchor Me" stamp set.  It was stamped in brown ink on a stitched rectangle die.  Lastly I added water droplets from Memory Box and added the blue panel to a slimline size card base.  Here's one last look:


Now, here's a look at my second card:


I made this card the same way except I used very little ink on the background and I used Memory Box watercolor card stock.

Here's a closer look at this card.  You can see I heat embossed the sentiment on black card stock with white embossing powder.


And here's one last look at my card:


I hope you like my cards for today!  Be sure to come back each day to the blog for more inspiration from the design team!

Rectangle Duo Border Birthdays
by Trina Pham

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.


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


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.


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.  😉


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. 


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.

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


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!

Spring Daisy and Butterfly Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  I have a spring card featuring the new Plumed Gypsy Butterfly and Scribble Daisy dies.


Flower and butterfly:

Die cut the Scribbled Daisy and Plumed Gypsy Butterfly from heavy weight card stock, twice, and then once from gold mirror paper from Vintage Pastel Mirror pad.  For the daisy, keep one of the die cuts together by adding washing tape to the back and placing the pieces back in.  Color the Daisy petals with alcohol markers.  I used Copics in a light yellow, medium yellow to a orange/yellow.  Don't worry about coloring the outline die cut.  repeat on the leaves.  I used Copic light green, medium green, and dark green.  For the Butterfly color in the solid die cut with the same colors randomly adding and blending.  Glue the white outline die cut on top and then add a 3rd layer with the gold.  I changed my mind on my design and why I have 3 layers of outlines stack on top.  You can select to only use 2 layers.


Frame and Sentiment: 

Gold hot foil emboss the 2nd largest Rectangle Double Boarder plate on white card stock.  Die cut out with the 2nd and 3rd largest die from the the A2 Rectangle Frame Die Set.  Die cut the purple and yellow pad paper from the Spring Plaid pad using the 2nd largest die from the the A2 Rectangle Frame Die Set.  Add foam tape to the back of the  frame.  Die cut the Hello Rush Script die from gold mirror paper from Vintage Pastel Mirror pad.  


Adhere the daisy to the plaid background panel, to the left side having some of the leaves under the boarder.  Adhere the frame on the background.  Adhere to a top folding A2 heavy weight card.  Adhere the butterfly to the upper right hand corner using foam tape.  Adhere the sentiment in the lower right hand corner.
