Now please enjoy the gallery of samples made by our team for today!


First up is Eunji’s card!  She made a bright and fun watercolored background with our Darling Flamingos, Stand Tall and Mini Wild Florals stamp sets.  That monstera leaf from our Mini Wild Florals is just perfect with our new tropical sets!


Jessica’s card is fun, pretty and chic with that bright pop of pink, chic stripes and flamingo focal point. 13418521_949594798472251_5885727003787618907_o

For Eunji’s next card, she created a dramatic sunset (with a subtle Floral Map underlay) with a couple of Darling Flamingos.


Next up is Emily’s gorgeous and bold flamingo card!  She created a monochromatic striped background as a backdrop to her pink flamingo. 13392073_1610494899264256_8530251271863464497_o

Mayline’s next card is clean and simple.  That blended blue background is the perfect backdrop for her Darling Flamingos13403325_10102776991867849_2506822994085037363_o

Next up is my card! I created a flamingo silhouette instead of layering the flamingo for my card.  First I prepped my card panel by laying down strips of Gold Foil Adhesive paper to create a chic background.  Next I die cut a circle panel using our Double Stitched Circle dies.  Then I blended half the circle with our Bright Emerald Dye ink.  Then I stamped the first solid layer of the flamingo and its legs in the middle of the panel with our Noir Dye Ink.  Next I stamped the monstera leaves and other foliage (Mini Wild Florals) on separate cardstock with our Hot Tourmaline and Bright Emerald Dye inks and die cut them using coordinating dies.  Next I die cut the gold foil foliage using the leafy dies from our Petal Cut Peony dies.  I popped up the circular panel with foam tape and arrange the remaining foliage.  Lastly I heat embossed the sentiment in aqua on black cardstock and fussy cut it and popped it up under my foliage.

Next up is Emily’s pretty flamingo against a chic striped background!13412146_1768764853342066_8752773182835488412_o

Ruby’s next gorgeous card is similar but she uses a different color scheme with pretty rubies and grays for her awesome flamingos.


Next up is Vera’s super fun and cute ice cream card!  She created a cute background with our Sundae Bar set. 13340146_770267341718_7008338616462249646_o

Next up is my card created with our Panda Can’t Even, Sundae Bar and Sparklers Alpha sets.  I stamped the sleeping pandas in our Noir Dye ink over each other to create a tower of pandas.  Then I stamped the top panda and stamped some ice cream scoops in his outstretched hands.  Next I stamped a tower of ice cream scoops with our various dye inks.  I kept with the same color scheme for the sentiment which I created using our Sparklers Alpha.  The Basic Labels completed the sentiment. 13391372_1610494922597587_5365205817249870757_o

Next up is Mayline’s fun Ice Cream Party card!  I love the bright colors she used to color in the different elements making this seem like a professional graphic print!  That sentiment from our Let’s Mingle set completed the card perfectly. 13415510_949594801805584_7021483412136073479_o

Eunji’s next shaker card is so cute with her ice cream hawking Honey Bear!  That blended Ice Cream Party background is the perfect backdrop for her hardworking bear. Her ice cream stand comes complete with an Ice Cream sign created with our Let’s Mingle Labels set.


Emily’s next card is the perfect birthday card for your ice cream lover because this background print is just awesome! No need for a gift because this card is a gift in itself topped with a gorgeous bow and mint foil ribbon! Our Basic Labels create the perfect sentiment tag for this card.
