Hello, fellow crafters and happy Friday!! I hope you are doing well!!
I have a fun Christmas card to share with you today!!
I began by die-cutting all of the elements different cardstocks. The trees were cut from green cardstock using the Pine Tree Cover Die, then Basil Mojito Ink was blended onto the edges. The globe and base were cut from blue and frosted silver cardstock with the Round Snow Globe Dies. I blended some Parisian Blue Ink onto the edges of the globe to give it some dimension. The deer were cut from white sparkle cardstock with the Deer Cover Die. I also hand cut the the snow drift from that same white sparkle cardstock. I splattered some diluted white gouache onto the trees and globe to mimic snowfall. Once that was dry, the globe was assembled as shown.
For the background, I die-cut the Slimline Star Coverplate Die from white cardstock, trimmed it down and adhered it over a panel of white sparkle cardstock, then to a top-folding cardbase. Since the die is intended to be used on a slimline card, I die-cut the Rectangle A2 Frames Slim Borders Coverplate Die from frosted silver cardstock and used one of the frames to cover the edges.
Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far ! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a holiday card I made using some of our new dies from October Release and holiday themed grouped layering stamp sets.
I started by making the golden panel which was dry embossed using the Holiday Border Dies. The gold mirror cardstock looked like real metal after dry embossing!
I then cut the letters for merry using the Bold Alphas Lower dies from some heavyweight white cardstock and heat embossed the lower 1/3 of them in gold.
I then started assembling the card. First I arranged the pine sprig and pine cone and berry bits on the top part of a beige cardbase and foam mounted the golden panel on the lower half of the cardbase. I aligned the letters and added them to the card using foam tape. I then added the holiday bouquet on the lower right corner and the small leafy embellishment on the letter “m”. I added red rhinestones to the bouquet.
The sentiment is from Winter Foliage stamp set. I white heat embossed the “& BRIGHT” on a piece of green cardstock and inked it with Deep Emerald to get an ombre strip.
That’s it from me for today! Hope you enjoyed looking my holiday card!
I started off by making the snow globe. I made an alcohol inked panel in blue, light brown and green to represent the sky and the forest as background. I splattered Snow Cap Mixative on it for a snowy scene. I colored an area of the panel in dark green and heat embossed random lines on it in gold and white and cut the pine trees using Pine Tree coverplate die from it.
I cut a white textured paper with a Double Pierced Rectangle die and made a window with the Dome Snow Globe die. I adhered a clear acetate sheet on the back of the panel and the frame for the snow globe cut from a beige cardstock on the front of the panel. I cut the base for the snow globe from the same beige cardstock and stamped a woodgrain pattern from Buildable Woodgrain stamp set on it in Warm Hazelnut on it.
I then assembled the shaker together. I adhered the alcohol inked background on a white cardbase and added the hill, the pine trees and the deer to it using some foam tape. I used Misty Mint Couture Mix as shaker element and foam mounted the front panel with the window on it.
The sentiment is from Poinsettia Wishes stamp set. I first cut the shadow layer for the sentiment using the Many Sentiments Holiday die set which matches with the large scripty sentiments from Poinsettia Wishes stamp set! I gold heat embossed the sentiment on the shadow die cut and added it to the card with a strip of a green glitter tape.
That’s it from me today! Hope I was able to inspire you with my card!
I started off by watercoloring a watercolor paper loosely in various Fall colors. After the panel was dry I cut the base layer of the Fall Leaves Layered die set from it. I love that the base layer has stitched details on the veins of the leaves!!! So pretty! I splattered gold ink on the leaves and set them aside to dry.
I cut two thick paper using the A2 Grid coverplate die and adhered them together to use it as a stencil. I applied white embossing paste through the stencil on a white cardbase. I did it only partially so that I have some white space on the cardbase. I sprinkled some gold and bronze embossing powder on the paste before it was dry and heat set it. The sentiment from the Cascade Bits set was stamped in Noir on the cardbase.
I arranged a Fall leaf bouquet with the leaves and the Cascade Bits, tied a bow using a natural twine and added a golden pearl to it.
That’s it from me for today! Hope you enjoyed looking my Fall card!
Hello, fellow stampers and card makers!! I hope your Thursday is off to a great start!!
I have a card to share with you using the new Poppy Smiles stamp set!! I couldn’t wait to color this one!! I have a friend who LOVES poppies and I owe her a thank you card, so I already know where this one is going!!
I began by stamping the floral cluster from Poppy Smiles onto white cardstock with Vanilla Frosted Cupcake Ink for some no-line coloring. After coloring the image with Copics, I added some stamen with a yellow gel pen.
Hi peeps! Vera here. Yesterday The Ton released some really amazing sets and from the moment I got my package, I was creating like crazy. That’s what happened when the sets just inspire you to create.
For today, I want to showcase Fall Leaves Layered Dies in all its glory. I don’t think this ever really happened to me, but I ended up with 4 cards for today’s post.
It all started with this beauty bunch.
Honestly this all happened by accident. I had no plan when I started working with these leaves. I was just doing various ink blending using Soft Garden, Lemon Drop, Coralline, Bright Emerald & Iris Blooms. Then I die cut the leaves and the outline. Still no plan. I thought I was going to do a couple card, maybe one with the outline and the other with the solid leaves.
Then as I was just playing around and by accident stacking them, I really love the randomness of the colors between the outline part and the solid part. When I saw them like above, I was just like, wow, this is so cool. And, before I know it, I ended up with 4 clean & simple cards that’s totally make my heart sings. I love super clean & simple cards.
I did some more ink blending and using Slimline Short Stripes Coverplate dies, I ended up with some pretty colorful strips to match the leaves. For this first card, I simply put everything together and finished with sentiment from Easy Expressions.
For the next two cards, I am using the same sets and just created variation of the 1st card.
All I can say, I am so happy with the way these cards turned out. Soft colors, plenty of white space, clean & simple design just make me happy. And, in a way it also show what a great set this Fall Leaves Layered Dies is. You could use 1 leaf or combine them however many you like and you could end up with several cards just from running this set one time.
Well peeps, I hope you enjoy today’s cards and I really hope you like them as much as I do. Thank you so much for stopping by here. Cheers….
Hello and welcome back to our October 2020 Release! We have 14 new dies and 2 stamps (with coordinating dies) to debut today. Most of the items are available to ship immediately (except our Poppy Smiles Coordinating Die – see below for more details).
We have the entire release available for purchase in one easy bundle with a savings of over $100. You can check out the bundle here.
Let’s get started!
I want to introduce our stamps first and then our standalone dies. First up is our Poppy Smiles stamp set!
I haven’t added a coloring floral stamp set to our collection in a while so I thought it was finally time! What I came up with is our gorgeous and new Poppy Smiles stamp set. This set features a large cluster image that is a dream to watercolor!
The coordinating die for our Poppy Smiles will have delayed shipping! Any orders containing this item will begin shipping on October 15.
Created by Anna using our Poppy Smiles, Diamond Plaid Layering Coverplate Dies, Script Word Dies Bundle and Dew Drop Enamel Dots.
Created by Olga using our Poppy Smiles Stamp Set, Grid Slimline Die, Scallop Nesting Slimline Dies, Easy Expressions Birthday, Dew Drop Enamel Dots.

Next up is our Cascade Bits stamp set! This is the newest addition to our patent pending grouped layering stamp collection!
Created by Brenda using our Cascade Bits, Grid A2 Coverplate Die (below), Easy Expressions Birthday and Couture Color Inks.
Now we have a few standalone dies to show you. Some of the designs might look familiar – we’ve converted some of our holiday themed digital files into dies! I was asked by many of our customers to produce these designs as physical dies so here they are!
I’m going to introduce all the dies first and then post a gallery of all the projects by our team after the lineup. Let’s begin!
First up are three alpha dies. Each die will cut out several alphas at once. One die features all the vowels and Y. The second larger die features consonants and the third die features the least used consonants (QVWXZ). By breaking up the coverplate dies, we wanted to help maximize your crafty time to make it easy to die cut alphas. One of my biggest gripes about die cutting was always taping down and cutting individual dies one by one. Especially smaller images or dies.
First up is our Bold Alphas Upper coverplate dies. These dies will cut out alphas in a bold uppercase font. Most die cut alphas in this collection measures approximately 7/8in x 1 5/8in.
Next is our Bold Alphas Lower coverplate dies. These dies will cut out alphas in a bold lowercase font. Most die cut alphas in this collection measures approximately 1in x 2in.
Next is our updated Modern Alphas Dies. The die cuts are the same as our original Modern Alphas coverplate die but this is an updated design with the three separated coverplate dies to ensure more productive die cutting sessions. You have one plate with a double layer of vowels, another main plate with commonly used consonants and the last plate consists of least used consonants.
We also added the Numbers/Symbols dies to our collection. These are available SEPARATELY from the alphas.
With this bundle, you receive two large coverplate dies that will cut out 8 leaf images each. One coverplate die will cut out the solid leaves with stitching detail. The second die will cut out the coordinating outline dies. Die cuts from both coverplate dies can be used alone or together.
Next up is our Holiday Border dies! There are 7 dies in total in this die bundle. These dies are approximately 8.5 inches long so you can use them on slimline dies as well as smaller formatted cards and projects.
This is a completely new design and not available in digital format. This bundle is one of my favorite from this release!
I taped my dies together to create a faux coverplate die to cut this beautiful panel out.
Next up is our Scalloped A2 Nested Dies! This collection will cut out 8 scalloped panels. These dies also add a stitching detail to your die cut panel. There are 8 separate nested dies in this collection.
Next up is our Pine Sprig coverplate die. This single die will cut out three pine sprigs at once. You’ll be able to easily mass produce these holiday elements to add to your floral clusters on your next project.
Created by Effie using our Pine Sprig die, Holiday Border Dies, Glossy Fine Silver Adhesive Paper, Christmas Bow stamp, Easy Expressions Holiday, A2 Stitched Coverplate Die and A2 Nested Stitched Dies.
