Haute Stacks FINAL water

Haute Stacks, 6×8 Stamp Clear Set

First up is our Haute Stacks set! This is one of my favorite sets of this release (not just because of the peonies)!  It has some large stacked fashion books that make a perfect centerpiece for your cards.

Our Haute Stacks will come with a color printed layering guide.

Haute Books FINAL water

Haute Books, 4×6 Clear Stamp Set

This is another one of my faves from this release. You’ll have the ability to stamp out a ultra stylized bookshelf with this Haute Books set!

CLING Minor Stripes 6x6 FINAL water

Minor Stripes, 6×6 Red Rubber Cling Background Stamp

Our new Minor Stripes Background stamp is a chic striped background stamp that is a staple on my craft desk.  

Vogue Skies water FINAL

Vogue Skies, 4×6 Clear Stamp Set

Our new Vogue Skies is a versatile skyline set. Stamp the skyline on its own or add some landmarks in the backdrop!

Sparklers Alpha FINAL water

Sparklers Alpha, 4×6 Clear Stamp Set

Our newest addition to our Alphabet sets is our Sparklers Alpha! They used to top cakes and cupcakes but now they can be stamped on your paper crafts!

Floral World FINAL water

Floral World Map, 4×6 Clear Stamp Set

Our new Floral World Map is my take on a world map set. This set comes with all the landmasses you need to complete your world map.  However, they’re all made of floral elements.  The set comes with individual floral elements the you an stamp in conjunction with your map or separately.

I hope you liked the previews.  Now please enjoy the gallery of inspiration by our talented design team!


Mayline created a fashionable, modern stylized bookshelf with our Haute Stacks, Haute Books and Shoe Wardrobe set.  I love the selective colored stamping of this card!13350355_770266518368_2076999079593845474_o

Next up is Emily’s Haute Stacks centerpiece.  She created such a lovely focal point with a subtle tone on tone background with our Rose Terrace Stamp.


Next up is Eunji’s dramatic watercolored card created with our Haute Books and Haute Stacks.  Her bold colors create a striking effect for this gorgeous centerpiece. stack shoes

Next up is my card created with our Haute Stacks, Minor Stripes, Vintage Frames, Vogue Skies and Shoe Wardrobe Solid sets.  First I stamped the stacks in our Noir Dye Ink.  Next I stamped the frames and shoes to create a fashion print. Then I heat embossed the Eiffel Tower from our Vogue Skies in our Rose Gold embossing powder.  I used the Eiffel Tower as a paperweight in card!  Next I fussy cut the centerpiece.  On a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped the Minor Stripes in Crystal Pewter Dye ink (it’s soft and subtle gray ink).  Then I blended some additional ink at the bottom of the panel.  Next I cut the black border frame using the two largest dies from our Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the striped panel onto my card base first, then popped up the frame above that panel and finally popped up my centerpiece. Next I rose gold heat embossed the sentiment, fussy cut it and popped I up over my panel. I finished the card off with some Rose Gold, Creme Brûlée and Glossy Black Sequins13433319_1768765180008700_4571425715726176251_o

Next is Ruby’s bright and colorful card.  I love her abstract watercoloring over that beautiful stack of fashion books and bright striped background!13411845_949598018471929_258826100922683389_o

Next is Eunji’s card created with our Haute Books.  I love how she created an asymmetrical bookshelf with our copper foil adhesive paper. That stunning purple tulip also contrasts beautifully with the monochromatic books that make up the background. haute books shelf

Next up is my card!  I chose a pink (Rose Quartz, Hollywood Star, Cosmopolitan Pink), gray (Crystal Pewter) and rose gold color (Rose Gold Bangle) palette and stamped all the books from our Haute Books accordingly.  I added some additional modern decor elements from our Vintage Frames and Vogue Alpha Upper sets to create a modern and simplistic monogram print to sit above my books.  After I finished stamping, I lined the top and bottom edges of my card base with strips of pink holographic adhesive paper.


Next is Vera’s fun and colorful card created with the giant ferris wheels from our Vogue Skies.  She also created a fun sentiment with our Sparklers Alpha and Basic Labels set. 13415641_1768764550008763_588835769389654333_o

Ruby’s next card is bold and beautiful! There’s so much dimension on her card with her layered skylines and subtle yellow striped backdrop.  I also love that sentiment to match the bold skyline. sparklers cityscape

Next up is my card created with our Vogue Skies, Sparklers Alpha and Pyrotechnics sets.  First I stamped the skyline and ferries wheel in our Crystal Pewter Ink.  Then I blended the background with our Cali Blue dye ink, Beach Blondie dye ink and Peach Blossom dye ink.  Next I stamped the sentiment in our Noir Dye ink. I then clear embossed the HOORAY and later embossed the sparklers with some gold glitter embossing powder.  Then I stamped the fireworks in our Rose Gold embossing powder and additional gold glitter embossing powder.  I created the black border frame using the two largest dies from our Double Stitched Rectangles die set. Finally, I finished off thee card with Rose Gold and Dusty Pink sequins.


Emily’s next card is a beautiful watercolored skyline with super soft colors that make a bold statement. 13433231_1610494202597659_2383191603189941874_o

Mayline’s next card is similar with a tone on tone look and an adorable bright pink geotag as the main focal point. 13411878_770856585868_3878203642690605529_o

Emily’s next card is a fun bokeh birthday card created with our Sparkler Alphas, Bokeh Burst Round and Brushed Happy sets.  The subtle details on this card make it such a glamorous one!13340057_922561178654_2926429422263102943_o

Jessica’s card is a super fun Fourth of July shaker card created with our Sparkler Alphas and Pyrotechnics set.  Love that subtle blending and crazy festive sequin mix!13308261_922561168674_553506380781130316_ofloral world

Next up is my card created with our Floral World Map set.  I did some selective coloring using my stamp positioning tool.  I colored in the different floral elements using my zig markers.  I continuously colored and stamped the entire set until I got a pretty result.  Then I created masks for the landmarks and blended some Cali Blue dye ink around the landmasses to get the illusion of water.  Then I stamped the sentiment with Deep Sapphire Dye ink.  I used the same ink for the geotags which I stamped separately, then fussy cut them and popped them up with some foam squares.  Next I trimmed my colored panel.  Then I  put down some Silver Glitter Tape at the top and bottom edges of my card base and adhered the colored panel onto the base.  I finished off the card by adhering some Glass Slippers sequins.


Next up is Ruby’s card! I love how she took the individual floral elements from our Floral World Map and stamped them into an adorable background. 13411814_1610494205930992_3864679248382829616_o

Last but not least is Mayline’s card.  I love her dramatic take on our Floral World Map and how she stretch her stamps to create a watercolored background.

    What a wonderful release! Love the Minor stripes – very distinct, not like the pinstripe I have seen elsewhere. The stripes are nice and even, not one stripe wider than the other – LOVE IT!
    The floral world map is so unique. I am in love with Vogue Skies – I already have plans for 5 cards with that set in my head. So many stamps and bling – small budget – what’s a girl to do?
