Video: Adding Color without Coloring – Easy Crafty Ninja Envelope Seals

Hi, everyone! I made a quick video on how to mass produce some envelope seals using our Crafty Ninja and Swatch It stamp sets.

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

I stamped the certified seal in our Crafty Ninja set onto sticker paper a few times. Then I stamped some of the icons within the seals. For both the seal and icons, I used our Caviar Hybrid ink to stamp.

Then I took one of the smaller stamps from our Swatch It set and partially stamped the bottom portion of the seals. I like to stamp towards the bottom portion of the circle so that the color doesn’t detract from the overall design. It’s also best to use a light to medium color for the swatch so that you can actually see the icon. For my seals, I used a combination of our Soft Garnet, Caribbean Turquoise, Amber Citrine and Coralline inks.

Then I used a 1.5 inch circle punch to quickly punch out all the seals. Since I stamped on label/sticker paper, it’ll be easy to stick these on my envelopes as seals!

This is how I added pops of color on these seals without actually coloring! I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial on another way to use our Crafty Ninja stamp set. Thanks for stopping by!

Coral Radiant Roses

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here with a couple of cards featuring Radiant Roses Standalone Layering Dies. I ink blended the roses in coral colors and the leaves in light brown. I love the look! I hope you’ll like them too 🙂 ! 

I started by ink blending white cardstock before die cutting. The base layer of the roses was ink blended in Rose Quartz and Peach Blossom, the second layer in Peach Blossom and the third layer in Peach Blossom and Coralline hybrid ink. For the leaves I used Warm Hazelnut and Found Topaz
I die cut all the layers of the Radiant Roses and added a bit of inks on the die cut pieces to make them slightly darker. I then assembled the flowers and leaves and set them aside. 

For the first card I cut a white panel using the Quilted A2 die and cut one side of it with a die from the Slimline Border die set. I heat embossed the scalloped border of the panel in rose gold and foam mounted the panel on a beige cardbase. 

I arranged the roses on the white panel using foam tape. The sentiment from Ditsy Bits stamp set was white heat embossed on a strip of cardstock on which I ink blended Found Topaz. I matted the strip with another strip of cardstock that I heat embossed in rose gold. 
To finish off I scattered some sequins from Raspberry Sparkle and Cinderella’s Ride Couture Mixes.

For the second card I ink blended a white panel in Rose Quartz, Peach Blossom and Warm Hazelnut and splattered light brown watercolor on it. I cut the panel with a die from the Scalloped A2 Nested Die set and heat embossed the sentiment from the Ditsy Bits set in rose gold on it before I foam mounted it on a beige cardbase. 

I added the largest rose from the  Radiant Roses Standalone Layering Dies along with some leaves and two buds to the card. To finish off I used the Raspberry Sparkle and Cinderella’s Ride Couture Mixes here as well.

Thank you so much for looking! Hope I was able to inspire you with my coral roses. 🙂 ! 

Have a crafty day!

Round Foliage Window Duo

Hello, fellow crafters!! I hope you had a great weekend!!

I have a couple of cards to share with you featuring the Round Foliage Window Dies, as well as a few other recently released goodies!!

These were both created the same way, just using a couple of different sentiment sets.

I began by stamping the Ribbons General stamp set with Hollywood Star and Cosmopolitan Pink inks and the Ribbons Affirmations stamp set with Caribbean Turquoise and Hot Tourmaline inks. Then I cut them out with the Ribbons General and Ribbons Affirmations coordinating dies.

I die-cut the leaf dies in the Round Foliage Window Die Set from two panels of white cardstock. I colored the leaves and berries with Copic markers that matched closely with the ink colors that I used in the sentiments.

The Slimline Quilted Coverplate Die was die-cut from white cardstock, cut in half and adhered behind the leaf windows, then adhered to panels of pink and teal cardstock. (I LOVE that bit of color peeking through those little diamonds!!) The pierced circle, also included in the Round Foliage Window Die Set, was cut from the same teal and pink cardstock once and white cardstock four times. They were layered and adhered together in sets of three with the colored cardstock on top, then adhered to the card panel.

“You are”, from the Ribbons Affirmations stamp set, was stamped directly onto the card front with Caribbean Turquoise ink. The die-cut sentiments were adhered with foam adhesive.

A sprinkling of Glass Slipper Sequins in a diagonal on each of the cards adds a little sparkle and shine!

Thanks so much for joining me today!! Have a great week!!

A couple of cards with Ribbons Affirmations

Hello! Olga with you today and I will show you a couple of cards.

So, my first card with Round Foliage Window Layering Dies.

I made the background using watercolor splashes and Quilted A2 Coverplate Die. Then I applied the circle from Quilted A2 Coverplate Die

I cut next layer from this dies set and toned it with Everglade Moss Dye. I added the foliage from Fancy Foliage and Eucalyptus. I stamped it with Caviar and colored with markers. I used Fancy Foliage Coordinating Die and Eucalyptus Coordinating Die to cut foliage.

I stamped the title from Ribbons Affirmations using Light Onyx and Noir and cut it with Coordinating Die. I decorated my card with Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots.

Next card. I used Radiant Roses Layering Dies. I cut all layers and toned it with Rose Quartz, Hollywood Star, Soft Garnet and Cosmopolitan Pink. I used Smoky Quartz and Crystal Pewter from the brunches.

I cut the ABC from Skinny Alphas Coverplate Die and black cardstock. I applied Border Die to grey cardstock. I places this details and added all elements of my card with title from Ribbons Affirmations.

I decorated my card with glitter splashes and Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots.

Have a nice day!

Sending Roses Love

Hi all. Vera here. Happy Wednesday. Since we’ve been dealing with cold weather, I figure we are all looking forwardto beautiful spring weather, thus the inspiration for my card today.

I sure do love playing with layered dies, especially when they’re gorgeous like this Radiant Roses Layering dies. I start by making the background using Grid A2 Coverplate die. I carefully remove it from the die cut plate (this way most of the cutout squares are still intact and I don’t have to put each single one back). Add adhesive to the whole card base and adhere the grid panel.

Next, die cut all the roses pieces from watercolor cardstock and watercolored each layer darker to create depth.

Next, I put all the pieces together.

Next, I work on the sentiment. I die cut the word love using Skinny Alphas Coverplate die. Colored it with Copic since I don’t have dark gray cardstock. Adhere to card. Then, I stamped the word sending from Dream Peony and add it to the card to finish it.

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope this card help brightens your day. Stay warm and I wish you all a beautiful day. Cheers.

Watercolor Eucalyptus

Hello, everyone! It’s Anna here with a card I made using watercolor stamping technique. My card features Eucalyptus stamps, Ribbons General stamps and coordinating dies.

First, I applied watercolor markers directly onto the Eucalyptus stamp. Before stamping it, I sprinkled stamp with water and stamped on the watercolor paper. And, because I am using layering stamps, I used a lighter watercolor marker for the first layer. All images were cut out with matching die.

For the background, I die cut a kraft panel using Diamond Plaid Layering Coverplate Dies. I adhered this kraft panel onto the white cardstock card base. Then, with the square foam sheets, added Eucalyptus to the card.

I die cut a stitched circle with Double Stitched Circle Nested Dies from white cardstock and stamped the sentiment from Ribbons General. “Hello” was stamped from the same stamp set in Found Topaz. The second layer was heat embossed in Glitter Gold. Lastly, I added a few dots from Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots to finish it up.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Ribbons General Sentiments

Hello crafty friends! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of purple cards I made using some new goodies from our 6th Anniversary Release focusing on the Ribbons General set. This grouped layering stamp set stamps six beautiful sentiments in two shades which can be cut with the coordinating die with only one pass through your die cutting machine! 

The first card is also showing the Quilted A2 die from the 6th Anniversary Release.

To arrange my floral cluster I used the Grouped Fresh Peonies stamp set and Fancy Foliage set. I stamped the peony flowers in Soft Amethyst, Iris Blooms and Grape Crush and the leaves in Soft Garden and Deep Emerald. I also stamped some gray Leaves from Fancy Foliage set in Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz. I cut them all using the coordinating dies and set them aside. 

To create the background I watercolored a Canson mixed media panel in purple and cut it using the Quilted A2 die die and Scalloped Nested A2 die.  I foam mounted the background panel on a white cardbase and added the floral arrangement on it. The Ribbons General set was stamped in Iris Blooms and Violet Fringe and cut using the coordinating die. Some Dew Drop Clear Enamel Dots were my finishing touch for this card.

For the second card for today I used the beautiful Monarch Butterfly Coverplate die along with the Ribbons General sentiment. 

To begin I watercolored a panel in purple and cerulean blue using Color Burst. I cut the Monarch Butterfly Coverplate from the panel. The background was also watercolored in gold and brown. I splattered dark brown watercolor on the background panel and mounted it flat on a white cardbase. The Monarch Butterfly Coverplate panel was then added using foam tape and the sentiment on it.

I decorated the sentiment with two branches from Fancy Foliage set which were gold heat embossed and colored in the same colors I used for the butterfly! To finish off I scattered some Light Blue Topaz Sparkling Clear sequins

That’s it from me for today! Hope you enjoyed looking my cards!

Thank you so much for stopping by 🙂 !
Have a happy day!

February Flash Release

Hello and welcome back, everyone!! I have four new stamps flash releasing today! I literally just got these stamps delivered to me an hour ago and I had to release ASAP because I thought they’d be something you guys needed right now! All four new sets are available to ship immediately.

Let’s start off with the one I posted on our social media that you all seem to be loving:

Crafty Ninja, 3x4in Photopolymer Set

Our new Crafty Ninja set features a seal with adorable icons that you can stamp inside! The seal measures slightly smaller than 1.5 inches across. Use the third smallest die in our Nested Circle dies or use a punch or cutting machine to cut out your seals!

How cute are these?!

The last three stamps are gardening specific. With the pandemic that hit us last year, I know it’s a hobby or activity that a lot of people took up. I fell in love this hobby as well so I thought I would design some stamps that were great for this hobby.

Garden Goddess, 4x6in Photopolymer Set

I designed this sentiment set because I started swapping seeds with some people in the gardening community and I wanted to create cards for these individuals! I also included a couple of stamps for custom seed envelopes for those swaps.

I also designed an SVG cut file so that you can cut your own seed envelopes. This cut file features the image of the seed envelope. ****There are also 4 lines within the image that you must convert into score lines on your cutting machine software.****

Seed Envelope SVG Cut File, DIGITAL FILE

Next up is our Harvest stamp set.

Harvest, 6x8in Photopolymer Set

This 6x8in set features three images of tomato, pepper and cucumber plants that are perfect for sending happy mail to your gardening buddies.

Plan with Me: Gardening, 6x8in Photopolymer Set

Last but not least is our Plan with Me: Gardening stamp set. In addition to sending happy mail to your gardening buddies, I thought it was imperative to release coordinating planner stamps for this beautiful hobby. There are 59 text stamps and 43 icon stamps. I hope you find this set useful! I adore it! (we also have a nice collection of general planner stamps here, if you’re interested)

That is all for our February flash release! I hope you enjoy the new designs. Let me know if you took up gardening during the pandemic or not. Are you still keeping up with this hobby? I just started some seedlings indoors a few weeks ago and I can’t wait until the weather warms up to plant everything else! Thanks for stopping by, everyone!!

Hello – Grouped Layering Stamps & Dies

Hello and happy Monday!! I hope you had a great weekend!! We got a little snow here in the Midwest and it is extremely COLD!! I don’t know about you, but once Christmas is over, I’m done with winter!! I thought I would create a card with spring colors to brighten the mood a little!

I began by stamping all of the grouped layering stamps onto white cardstock. Ditsy Bits was stamped with Hollywood Star, Cosmopolitan Pink, Beach Blondie, Amber Citrine and Soft Garden inks. The Eucalyptus stamp set was stamped using Caribbean Turquoise and Hot Tourmaline and the Fancy Foliage with Soft Garden and Bright Fern. I die-cut the stamped images with the Ditsy Bits, Eucalyptus and Fancy Foliage coordinating dies.

I die-cut the background from white cardstock using the Quilted A2 Coverplate Die and layered it over a panel of yellow cardstock. I cut the scalloped border from white cardstock with a die from the Slimline Border Dies and popped it up on the left side with foam adhesive.

I adhered the stamped die-cuts along the left side, over the scalloped border and trimmed the excess off the edge. The sentiment was stamped onto white cardstock with Hollywood Star and Cosmopolitan Pink inks using the Ribbons General stamp set, then cut out with the Coordinating Dies. It was also popped up with foam tape. A few Glass Slipper Sequins finish off the card.

Thank you so much for hanging out with me today!! Have a great week and stay warm!!

At first, I stamped Lily Bloom with Caviar. I covered it with masking paper and stamped Coming up Lilies

Then I colored the lilies with markers.
