Rose Gold Happy Birthday

Happy Friday!! Brenda here with you today…

Have I ever told you about my love affair with The Ton’s Rose Gold Embossing Powder? Yep, completely smitten with it!! It melts soooooo smooth!!! The birthday card I am sharing today has lots of rose gold on it.


I started off by stamping the stunning Gardenia Border Cling Background Stamp with Versamark onto Bristol smooth paper and embossing it with Rose Gold Embossing Powder. After coloring it with Zigs, I cut the image with the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large). I die-cut “happy” with the Bold General Greeting Word Plate Dies from some rose gold glitter paper and white fun foam. “Birthday”, from Peony Laurel, was also stamped with Rose Gold Embossing Powder below the die-cut sentiment. I pulled out sequins from the Guava Sparkle, Raspberry Sparkle and Rose Champagne Sparkle Couture Mixes to match the coloring and called it done.



Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Have a great weekend!!!

Hello, everyone! The countdown to Christmas has begun and my deadline to send out cards is really coming down to the wire… For today, I have a watercolored card created using our Cozy Poinsettias and Modern Plaid stamps.

I’m going to keep this blog post brief with my video where I explain the process.

Hello and welcome back! Today, I have two cards using our Grand Bows and Diagonal Stripes background stamp. We also have an exclusive discount code. Scroll down for the code!

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by creating my background panels first. I stamped our Diagonal Stripes onto a white A2 panel with our Valentine Red Dye Ink. Then I white heat embossed the stamp onto an red A2 panel.

For my first card, I stamped our Grand Bows in Valentine Red and Aspen Cocoa dye inks. Here is a video layering tutorial where I describe the process in more detail. Then I created silver “ribbons” using our metallic Silver Foil Tape. Please note that our foil adhesive products do not contain any metal elements. Next I die cut my red panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles Small die collection. I adhered the center panel onto a side folding cardbase. Then I popped up my silver foil strips onto my base with foam tape.

Next I created my tag for my sentiment using our Holiday Chic Tags stamp set and coordinating fishtail tag die. The tag was first stamped with the speckled stamp in our Crystal Pewter Dye Ink. Then I die cut the tag using the fishtail tag die which also leaves pierced edges and gives the tag a beautiful finished look. Then I stamped the sentiment. Once my tag was created, I popped it up onto my card first. Then I popped up my die cut Grand Bow. Lastly, I popped up that thin border that I die cut earlier from our red embossed panel.

My next card was created in a similar fashion. I just used a different color palette for this one. Instead of silver foil tape, I used our Red Foil Adhesive paper for the “ribbons”. For my bow I used a combination of our Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz dye inks. I also added a Pop Up Poinsettia inside this second card.

Digital Printables and New Background Stamps for Holiday

Hello and happy Friday, everyone! It’s TaeEun here today with three holiday cards and tags! I used some of our new background stamps released in November and digital printables from our store.

Let’s start with a couple of shaker cards.

TT1207 all WM

Recently I played with our new digital items. I foiled some of in black printed Christmas Trees and I thought I could use the negative pieces of the beautiful foils to make shaker cards. So I made two of them 🙂 !  The golden Christmas tree was turned into a tag and the teal one was used on a card in my previous post.

TT1207 1 2 WM

To create the front panel of this card I cut the Christmas Tree from a A2 sized white cardstock and blended Pink Derby, Red Sangria Hybrid ink and Soft Garnet on the panel. I then stamped Modern Plaid Cling background stamp in Hampton white pigment ink on it. I cut it using Double Stitched Rectangle Die.

TT1207 1 CU1 WM

I adhered the negative gold foil of a Christmas Tree and a clear acetate piece behind the shaker window. To make the background I blended Soft Garden and Caribbean Turquoise on the center of the cardbase, added white dots using a white gel pen and adhered some sequins from Misty Mint Couture Mix which I used to fill the shaker along with Pink Blossoms Couture Mix. I gold heat embossed the tiny snowflakes from Holiday Ballet stamp set on some white cardstock, cut it with the coordinating dies and blended Soft Garnet on some of the snowflakes. I added them as tree decorations to finish off the card.

TT1207 1 tag WM

I made the golden Christmas Tree into a tag. I’ve made more tags with the colorful Christmas Tree by simply printing and cutting them.

TT1207 tag WM

The making process of the second shaker is actually the same as the first one.

TT1207 2 2 WM

This time I white heat embossed the Confetti Party Cling stamp on the front panel and blended Violet Fringe, Deep Sapphire, Cali Blue and Hot Tourmaline .

TT1207 2 CU new

The blue to pink ombre background was created by blending Cali Blue, Caribbean Turquoise, Soft Garnet and Red Sangria Hybrid ink. To fill the shaker I chose Midnight Frost Couture Mix and Light Blue Topaz Sparkling Clear sequins.

TT1207 3 3 WM

The next holiday card is showcasing Holiday Ornaments Printables. This file includes black and colored version of Christmas ornaments. I printed the black ornaments to foil them in various colors.

TT1207 3 CU1 WM

The foiled ornaments were fussy cut ( You can use the coordinating dies of Holiday Ornaments stamp set.). I adhered some Adhesive Foil Paper Gold as the cap on the ornaments.

TT1207 3 4 WM

I made the background panel using Gansai Tambi watercolor in purple, blue and pink on some watercolor paper, cut it using Double Stitched Rectangle Die and foam mounted it on a pink cardbase.  The gold heat embossed sentiment is from Blizzard Hugs set. I then added the ornaments with a golden thread onto the card using some foam adhesive.

That was the last card I made for today’s post! Hope I was able to inspire you!

Have a wonderful weekend!







Pop Up Poinsettia Shaker Card

Hello! Today I want to show you an interactive card with the Pop Up Poinsettia inside and a shaker.


I stamped Wanderland Print stamps layer by layer using Bright Emerald, Soft Garnet and Caribbean Turquoise dye.


Then I applied Coordinating die and Double Stitched Rectangle die . The next step was glueing the overlay, filling it with Queen Anne`s Lace Couture Mix and fixing it to the base with foam tape.


I cut the pop-up’s details of Pop Up Poinsettia Standalone dies and toned it with Soft Garnet and Caribbean Turquoise dyes and glued it inside the card.

Thank you for stopping, have a nice day!


Holiday Season’s cards

Hello Everyone! Anna here with two Holiday Season’s cards.

Here is the first card


At first, I cut a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than a card front. Then I stamped images from amazing Wonderland Print Stamps with Couture Color – Bright Emerald Dye and Couture Color – Valentine Red Dye. The layer with pine branches was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed in Rose Gold.


I stamped sentiment in Noir. I attached the panel to red glitter cardstock card front panel.


Lastly, I added a few sequins from Just a Dream Couture Mix to finish off the card.

To create the second card, I started by ink blending Couture Color – Red Sangria Hybrid and Couture Color – Valentine Red Dye on a piece of white cardstock. Next, I cut out the mittens on cricut machine using Mittens Buildable Bundle SVG Cut File.


Next, I created a cluster of pine brunches (Pine Branches SVG Cut File) using green, dark green, glitter green and glitter silver cardstock. I added some white enamel to a kraft card base to create a background and stamped the sentiment from Holiday Chic Tags Stamp Set with Noir.


I attached all images to my card and embellished it with a few sequins from Queen Anne’s Lace Couture Mix.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great Monday, friends!


Cheerful Holiday Season & Winter Birthday Wishes

Hello crafty friends & happy Friday!! Do you have big plans for the weekend?

Brenda here, I have two floral cards to share with you today…one is for the holidays (with a surprise inside) and the other is a winter birthday card. Both use one of the new cling background stamps. Let’s start with the holiday card…


I was so excited when Effie designed these new background stamps. They add just the right amount of interest to floral cards, but still let the florals shine!!

I began by stamping the image from Coming Up Poinsettias with Caviar Ink. After coloring them with Copic markers and colored pencils, they were cut out with the Coming Up Poinsettias Coordinating Die. The Modern Plaid Cling Background Stamp was stamped onto black cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed in white. I cut the panel with the 2nd largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large). I chose a purple cardstock that complimented my poinsettias and cut a panel from it using the largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large). The sentiment is also from the Coming Up Poinsettias set. It was heat embossed in white onto black cardstock. The poinsettias and sentiment were popped up with foam adhesive. Silver Stickles were added to the centers of the poinsettias and a scattering of Silver Metallic Sequins finish off the outside of the card nicely.



But wait…there’s more!!


I thought the Pop-Up Poinsettia was the perfect addition to the inside of the card!! I chose two colors of purple paper, green cardstock and some silver glitter paper for the center.


We have so many family birthdays coming up in December!! Along with mine, we also have two nieces and an aunt that I share my birthday month with. I decided to color the Amazing Gardenia for my aunt.


This has to be among my favorite stamps of all time!! It is so great to color!! I chose to try some no-line coloring this time around. I stamped the gardenia with Rose Quartz Ink onto white cardstock. After coloring it with Copics and colored pencils, the Amazing Gardenia Coordinating Die was used to cut out the image. I stamped the Fresh Linen Background Cling Stamp with Rose Quartz Ink onto white cardstock and trimmed the top and bottom down slightly. I cut an A2 size panel from plum cardstock and adhered it to a cardbase. I applied some Silver Glitter Tape to the top and bottom so that when the stamped panel was adhered, a thin line of silver glitter peeked out from underneath. The sentiment, from Coming Up Poinsettias, was white heat embossed on plum cardstock. The gardenia and sentiment were popped up with foam adhesive, with a line of Silver Glitter Tape under the sentiment. A generous sprinkle of Glass Slipper Round Confetti Mix adds some more shine.



That does it for me today!! I’ll see you soon!!!

Snowflakes card and tags

Hello everyone! Olga is with you. Today’s first project is a card with Snowflake Layering Coverplate.


I blended a white cardstock with Azurite Dye. Then I applied the Snowflake Layering Coverplate Die Bundle on the cardstock. I raised some snowflakes with foam tape and decorated it with glitter.


I stamped the title of Blizzard Hugs Stamps on the black cardstock with watermark ink. Then I applied heat embossing with White Powder. I added it to my card and decorated with sequins.


And the next project for today is a tags. I like to make a tags and use them later for gift wrapping – it helps to add some identity to every gift. Holiday Chic Tags Stamp Set is a perfect set for this task.


I cut the tags using Holiday Chic Tag Coordinating Dies. Then I stamped on it the background and added the titles with Caviar Hybrid. I cut the snowflakes on the differend cardstock using Snowflake Layering Coverplate Die Bundle.



I hope you enjoyed my card and tags, and it will inspire you to make this holidays special! Have a good day!









Holiday Cards and Tags

Hello everyone! Hope your week is off to a great start!

It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of holiday cards and some tags to share with you! I used Snowflake Layering Coverplate Die Bundle, Holiday Chic Tags and some new digital cut files and printables from our store. A festive poinsettia is hiding in the inside of one of the holiday cards, made using Pop-Up Poinsettia standalone dies 🙂 .

Let’s get started with my first Christmas card with the Pop-Up Poinsettia. For this card I used Mittens Buildable Cut File.

TT1126 2 3 WM-

To start off I white heat embossed Christmas Sweater on a Canson watercolor paper. I cut a pair of mittens included in Mittens Buildable Cut File from the panel placing the mittens as shown in the picture.  I colored the negative panel in soft green and yellow tone using Color Burst and lots of water. The mittens were colored in bold red.  I cut the mittens once more from some red fun foam to raise them.

TT1126 2 CU2 WM-

The background panel was cut using Double Stitched Rectangle die and adhered flat on a creme cardbase and I placed the red fun foam and the red mittens on it.

TT1126 2 CU3 WM.jpg

The sentiment is from Holiday Chic Tags set. I white heat embossed it on a scrap of kraft cardstock on which I stamped woodgrain pattern using Buildable Woodgrain in Warm Hazelnut and cut it using the small rectangle die from Holiday Chic Tags.

Before I foam mounted the sentiment I adhered a red twine connecting the mittens on the card so that it looks like the mittens are hanging underneath a shield.

I embellished the mittens with some white felt, red bow and red rhinestones.

TT1126 2 in 2 WM

The Pop-Up Poinsettia was cut from some red and green Vellum and arranged on the inside of the card. As the vellums are thinner than print paper it isn’t bulky at all and the surprise is guaranteed 🙂 !

TT1126 2 in CU WM

TT1126 2 4 WM-

To make my next card and the tags I used our new Snowflake Layering Coverplate Die Bundle.

My second card was actually made after the tags were done. As I used the silver glittery snowflakes on the tags I had the silver panel left. So I decided to make a card using it.

TT1126 1 1 WM

To start off I blended Hollywood Star on my white cardbase in ombre and adhered the second layer cut from Adhesive Glitter Paper Glossy Fine Silver using Snowflake Layering Coverplate Die on it. The first layer was cut from some Shimmery cardstock and adhered onto the card.

TT1126 1 CU3 WM

To match with the snowflake theme I chose a Christmas tree with the sentiment “Let it Snow” from Christmas Tree Printables. I printed it with my laser printer and foiled it in teal. I then cut it with my cutting machine (you can use the coordinating die of Christmas Tree set) and foam mounted it on some silver thread. I really like the shine and sparkle of the silver glitter paper and teal foil!

TT1126 1 3 WM

I made six tags from three die cut A2 panel cut using Snowflake Layering Coverplate Die Bundle.

TT1126 Tag all WM

I blended Hollywood Star, Plum wine, Violet Fringe, Cali Blue, Deep Sapphire and Found Topaz on a A2 sized white cardstock. I die cut the panel using first layer (larger snowflakes) of the Snowflake Layering Coverplate Die Bundle. The second layer was cut from Adhesive Glitter Paper Glossy Fine Silver as mentioned above. I cut one more A2 sized white panel using the first layer. I then cut three tags using Holiday Chic Tags dies from each A2 panel.

TT1126 Tag 4-6 WM

I cut some tags from white and light blue cardstock as the base layer of my tags. The silver glittery snowflakes were adhered on the color blended tags and the color blended snowflakes were inlaid on the white tags.

TT1126 Tag 1-3 WM new

The sentiments are all from Holiday Chic Tags stamp set, some are silver heat embossed on vellum some are black heat embossed on vellum or on white cardstock. The vellum sentiments were adhered flat on the tags and the “for you” on white cardstock was fussy cut and foam mounted.
