Hi, everyone! We’re continuing with our DIY Christmas video series with our 6th video! For today’s projects, I’m creating easily layered stamped cards in an assembly line style. These are great designs to use if you’re in a pinch and need last minute cards or if you want to gift the cards as a nice bundle.
Hello and welcome back to Day 3 of our 12 Days of DIY Christmas Video Series! For today’s projects, I wanted to create some EASILY mass produced christmas cards. These are great when you’re in a pinch and you need a quick card OR you can use them as a great gift idea!
Hi, everyone!! Welcome back to Day 2 of our 12 Days of DIY Christmas Video Series! We have a DIY project today – custom gift boxes created with hand stamped paper/cardstock!

Hello and Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there! I hope you’re enjoying the day today! I have a main project and a flash digital release. Be sure to scroll all the way down to see the new goodies! For my project today, I have a watercolored card using our Amazing Gardenia and Beautiful Branches set.
I started off by gold heat embossing the gardenia onto watercolor paper. After I die cut it using the coordinating die (which is still available but once it sells out, we will not be restocking!), I watercolored it using Peony and Sap Green Color Bursts.
Next, I used my electric cutting machine to cut out the shapes of my Beautiful Branches. You can find the SVG download here. **The Beautiful Branches download contains 2 cut files. The first file is the Placement Guide file which cuts out both branches on individual rectangles. You’re going to place these guides into your Misti to easily stamp or emboss your cut pieces.
The second file contains a cut file that only cuts out the shape of the two branches. Cut this file first if you want to stamp/emboss multiple cut pieces easily.
Once all my cutting and embossing was complete, I colored in the floral branch using Orchid and Indigo Color Bursts (and Sap Green and Prussian Blue for the leaves). For the smaller branch, I used Prussian Blue for the buds and Sap Green for the leaves.
Next, I created a 6 inch x 4.25 inch green cardstock panel. I also created a 4 inch x 2.5 inch white panel which I adhered onto the green panel. Then I popped up my gardenia and branches. For my sentiment, I white heat embossed the Mother’s Day sentiment in our Mini Holiday stamp set onto gray cardstock. Once embossed, I trimmed it into a narrow strip and popped it up onto my card. Lastly, I added some Medallion Gold sequins to add some a metallic details. I tucked some sequins behind my florals for more interest!
I hope you enjoyed this project! Let’s move on to see the new digital release! **No physical product will be shipped with our digital items**
Hi, everyone! Today, I have this bright and busy card for you created using our Happy Place stamps. If you’re following us on IG, I did say that I had another card for today but I changed my mind because I fell in love with this project. The blue Smiling Cosmos project peek that you got yesterday will be posted tomorrow on our Youtube Channel (so stay tuned!).

This card was a bit involved with all the different products used. However, it was really fun to make and I love the bright results. Also, this was a great project to showcase how to stretch your Happy Place stamps! You can just partially ink/emboss the large image from this set to selectively use the florals. I’m a sucker for peonies so this was a no brainer.
I started off by selectively embossing the florals from the large image from this set. I used our Rose Gold Embossing Powder for this. Next I watercolored the peonies using Peony Color Bursts (and Sap Green for the leaves). Once colored, I die cut the florals and then trimmed off the book portions.
Next, I rose gold embossed the sentiment from our Hustle and Grind set onto my stitched panel. Then I popped this panel up on my Toned Hearts background as well as my peony clusters. For an additional pop up color, I stamped and copic colored three butterflies from our Beautiful Butterflies 3 set and popped those up on my card in a visual triangle. Lastly (for the card front), I added some of our Glass Slippers sequins for a bling effect.
Since I added our Beautiful Butterflies 3 to this card, I also decided to add our a Morpho Pop Up Butterfly inside my card for that wow effect. I die cut my two detailed wing pieces onto white cardstock. Then I blended some Bright Emerald and Hot Tourmaline Dye Ink to the wings. Once assembled, I adhered the two pieces to the inside of my card completing my project.
I hope you guys enjoyed today’s post! It was a bit more busier than my usual style but I love the results. I hope you guys did, too!
Hello and welcome back to The Season!! Today, I have a card created using our Today’s Cosmos and some leftover die cut sentiments from a previous project.
Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!
I started off by white heat embossing all of the images from our Today’s Cosmos. The florals in this set are larger than our usual stamps so I really love working with them (especially with watercolor). After everything was embossed, I watercolored the florals using Fuchsia and Merlot Color Bursts. For the leaves, I used Pthalo Green Color Bursts. Once painted, I die cut all the images using their coordinating dies.
Next, I die cut our Geometric Circle Coverplate die onto a white A2 card panel which I adhered onto an top folding A2 base for a white tone on tone effect. Next I popped up each individual letter from my leftover “beautiful” die cut sentiment. These die cuts were leftover from this project. Head over to the link to see how I created them.
Next, I assembled and popped up all my florals and leaves with some foam tape. Then I added the “you’re” sentiment with a double layer of foam tape. Lastly, I added some Glass Slippers Sequins for some shiny bling!
That’s all from me today! Thanks for stopping by!!
Hello and welcome back, everyone! Today, I have a video and card using our Peony Close Up and Color Bursts. I’m not doing my traditional watercolor painting today. Instead, I’ll be squeezing the powder directly onto my project!
I started off by white heat embossing the stamp onto an A2 sized watercolor paper panel. Then I wet the entire panel with clean water using a spray bottle.
Next, I started squeezing Color Burst pigments directly onto the wet image. I started with Fuchsia, Gamboge and then Pthalo Green. I saturated the paper enough where I did not have to use my water brush that often to control where the pigment went. I let the pigments move more naturally on my project. Whenever there was an accumulation of too much water, I just dabbed it up with a paper towel. Once my panel was “painted”, I dried it with a heat gun.

Once my shoe was all stamped out, I die cut it with it’s coordinating die. Then I created a smaller white rectangular panel which I blended some Bright Emerald Dye ink onto. This is going to give my pump a nice glow to emphasize it. Next, I stamped the sentiment from the same set with our Caviar ink.
Then I started assembling my card since all my stamping was complete. I had trimmed my glass windows panel a little bit in the beginning so I mounted that onto a side folding A2 base. Then I adhered the white emerald blended panel onto the base with dimensional foam tape. Next, I mounted the pump using more foam tape and finally added some Glossy Black sequins around the sentiment to complete my card.
How fabulous is this card? I love the clean and chic finish that the Glass Windows background gives to the project.
Next I white heat embossed our Glass Windows Background Stamp onto watercolor paper and applied a Sap Green wash onto the embossed panel. I added Terre Vert color burst to the windows/boxes of the design while the Sap Green wash was still wet. Then I added some additional Sap Green and Turquoise to the panel to add a bit of variation to my background.
I’ll be quite honest here. After I finished painting my green windowed panel, I almost scrapped the background. I wasn’t in love with it. This background looked amazing when painted with prussian blue so I thought the technique would look great with green on my holiday card. At this point, I decided to push through it and just use the panel since I had already created it. To tone down the business of the bright green background, I used smaller stitched rectangular panel as a point to ground my poinsettia cluster. It totally worked! It made the background work. I’m so happy I didn’t scrap the green background.
I adhered the green windowed panel onto an A2 side folding base, then I adhered the smaller white stitched panel onto the green panel. Next I stamped my sentiment (which is from the Holiday Love Poinsettia set) onto the white panel using our Caviar Hybrid Ink. Next I popped up my cluster with some dimensional foam tape and completed my card by adding some Glass Slippers sequins over the entire front of my card in visual triangles.
That’s all from me for this post! Thanks for stopping by!!
Next I created my tag for my sentiment using our Holiday Chic Tags stamp set and coordinating fishtail tag die. The tag was first stamped with the speckled stamp in our Crystal Pewter Dye Ink. Then I die cut the tag using the fishtail tag die which also leaves pierced edges and gives the tag a beautiful finished look. Then I stamped the sentiment. Once my tag was created, I popped it up onto my card first. Then I popped up my die cut Grand Bow. Lastly, I popped up that thin border that I die cut earlier from our red embossed panel.
My next card was created in a similar fashion. I just used a different color palette for this one. Instead of silver foil tape, I used our Red Foil Adhesive paper for the “ribbons”. For my bow I used a combination of our Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz dye inks. I also added a Pop Up Poinsettia inside this second card.
