Dim Sum Fun with Amy

Hello everybody! Amy here to share with you two projects I made using the awesome Dim Sum Fun stamp set for Inspiration Week. Honestly, this set can't get any cuter! Something about adorable food images just makes me smile.


For both cards, I stamped the images from Dim Sum Fun on smooth white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers. Afterwards, I cut them out with their coordinating creative cuts. I love how the bamboo steamer die creates slits, so that you can tuck in the images instead of taping them on. It adds a fun interactive aspect, especially on my second card where you can move them around.


For my first project, I made a fun shaker card. To create the windows, I used Tri Window Cover Creative Cuts. I added three sentiments on this card, I thought they went well together. It's such a cute way to tell someone you love them and that they're awesome, don't you think?


For the next project, I made a birthday card. To add more interest, I borrowed images from other stamp sets. I used the tiny balloons and sign post from The Cat's Meow and the streamers from Party Kit. I colored the images and added little dots to the card front with Copic markers. To frame the card, I die cut white cardstock using Frame Tags Madison Avenue Creative Cuts, and adhered it with foam tape for dimension. Now these dim-sums are ready to party!


I hope you've enjoyed the Dim Sum Fun Inspiration Week. Don't forget to come back tomorrow, as we start a new week with Mermaid Kisses.

Dim Sum Fun with Laura

Hi there! Laura here and today I have another project featuring the adorable Dim Sum Fun set.

Mama Elephant-Dim Sum Fun 
I blended several Mama Elephant pigment inks onto three strips of cardstock, die cut them using the Fringe-Creative Cut and then stitched the fringe strips onto the panel.

Mama Elephant-Dim Sum Fun 
The Dim Sum Fun images were colored with Copics and then popped up over the fringe strips with foam tape. I just love that sentiment!

Dim Sum Fun with Pamela

Good morning everyone! This is Pamela on Mama Elephant's blog for a simple and fun card using Dim Sum Fun. Since I'm Chinese, I love this stamp set and I'm laughing as I colour in those adorable dim sum! I wanted a colourful, but simple background for my card base so I decided to do some simple plaid blending/masking. I love doing these backgrounds because (1) they are really really easy and (2) I don't have to worry about the alignment or not getting a good coverage with a stripe stamp.

I peel off the masking tape and I turn the card around and start taping the other way. 

DS - Dim Sum - 2 

I've coloured and die cut these cuties and I start arranging them on my card. With 9 types of dim sum, it would be a perfect 3x3 grid.

 DS - Dim Sum - 3 

I stamped this punny sentiment out and cut out a rectangle that would fit perfectly between the first and second row of dim sums.

What's your favourite dim sum? My favourite would definitely be the steamed bunny buns!

Hello friends! Nichol here today with a Designer Series card featuring the brand new Dimsum Fun Stamp Set and coordinating dies. The Dimsum Fun images pair perfectly with the new Tri Window Dies. The windows provide the perfect windows for cute scenes and greetings!

The images from the Dimsum Fun Stamp Set were stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock using a black ink and colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers before being die cut with the coordinating Dimsum Fun Dies.

For the background a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2 piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock was inked with Scattered Straw Distress Ink and spritzed with water from a Distress Sprayer and blotted dry with a paper towel.

A frame was die cut from a sandwich of Bristol Smooth cardstock adhered to Fun Foam with Stick It Adhesive using the Tri Window Frame Die. The frame was inked with Wild Honey and Scattered Straw Distress Inks before being spritzed with water from a Distress Sprayer and blotted dry with a paper towel. The word "HUGS" from the Tri Window Frame was also die cut from the dimensional material and inked with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. 

The frame and words "HUGS" was adhered to the background as shown and the stamped, colored, and die cut images were adhered in the top two windows.

A greeting from the Dimsum Fun Stamp Set was stamped on vellum using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The greeting was cut into a thin strip and adhered over the dimensional word greeting using little dots of liquid adhesive.

Small hearts from the Dimsum Fun Stamp Set were stamped and on the background with black ink and colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.
