Mint Frosting Couture Mix
Pink Frosting Couture Mix
Pink Lemonade Couture Mix
Now for our stamps! We have six new stamps debuting today. First up, we have our Haute Stacks 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.
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!
Our new Minor Stripes Background stamp is a chic striped background stamp that is a staple on my craft desk.
Our new Vogue Skies is a versatile skyline set. Stamp the skyline on its own or add some landmarks in the backdrop!
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!
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!
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 Sequins.
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.
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 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.
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.
