Soiree with Nichol!

Hello everyone! Nichol here today with a Designer Series card share showcasing the brand new Soiree Creative Cuts dies. I created a bright and fun multi-layered birthday cake topped with some sweet little banners and finished with an embossed multi-colored greeting with the coordinating Soiree Stamp Set and Creative Cut dies.

I embellished the cake layers using a bit of thin organza ribbon and circle sequins cut using the Confetti Creative Cuts die. I used a bit of Glossy Accents over the stamped and die cut cake stand to give it a "ceramic cake plate" look and topped the cake with the mini banner colored in with Copic Markers.

I created my own plaid background using a border stamp from the Basic Borders Stamp Set on the die cut Index Card stitched rectangle. To keep the focus on the cake, I die cut the scalloped rectangle using the Index Card die and finished the edges by adding faux stitches with a white pen.

Bootastic with Pamela!

Do you have the Bootastic stamp set? Coordinating dies are here! No more fussy cutting and these dies will let you build an army of cute kids! This is Pamela on the blog with a card using the new Bootastic Creative Cuts.

I used the cute witch from the stamp set and I die cut a window from a piece of orange cardstock. I then stamped the witch onto a piece of cardstock and coloured it with my copic markers.

I then heat embossed the sentiment in white directly onto the orange cardstock. Using some foam adhesive, I adhered the orange to my card base.

Some wood veneer stars here and there and the card is finished. I love that bold white against the orange cardstock!

Index Card CC with Laura!

Hi everyone! Laura Bassen here again, sharing a project featuring the new Index Card - Creative Cuts. This die set allows you to create the cutest little A1 size cards. I love this size. The speech bubble is also included in the set. After creating a speech bubble window, I blended in some soft ink on the card base, and popped the card front up with foam tape.

I used a bit of masking to huddle the cute critters from the Just Hatched stamp set and then colored them with Copics.

In my mind, I pictured these cute little critters visiting a newborn baby in the hospital, and they wanted to bring the baby some balloons. (Just go with it, lol.) So, I popped up a few balloons using the circle image from the Pandamonium stamp set and drew a few balloon strings. Super easy, cute and perfect for baby. That's all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Geotagged with Nichol!

Hello there! Nichol here today with a card showcasing the brand new Geotagged Creative Cuts Dies that coordinate with the Geotagged Stamp Set.

I incorporated the Hello Script Creative Cuts Die and Index Card Creative Cuts Dies to round out the stmaped die cut design.

I die cut a piece of smooth white cardstock using the Index Card Creative Cuts stitched rectangle die. I stamped the United States image using the Rock 'n Roll technique with five colors of Mama Elephant pigment inks: Apple, Orangeade, Sunshine, Mojito and Ocean.

I die cut the Hello Script Creative Cuts Die from the stitched rectangle Index Card Creative Cuts. I also cut another hello from some dark gray cardstock. I used the inlay die cutting technique to inlay the gray cardstock "hello" into the stitched rectangle. I added a stamped greeting under the die cut word to finish the card's greeting.

I stamped the suitcases from the Geotagged Stamp Se and die cut the pieces using the coordinating Geotagged Creative Cuts Dies. A stitched stamped line from the So Breezy Stamp Set and the stamped geotag die cut complete the design.

Bootastic with Elena!

Hi there, it's Elena with a Boo-tastic card!  It's beach-weather outside, but we're already looking to halloween. (I would ordinarily mind the thought of colder temperatures, but these images are so cute, I'd work with them anytime!)

I love the new dies that coordinate with the Bootastic stamp set.

I stamped a card-base full of bats, and then used the new dies to make the witch and her witchy-cat stand out. They are both propped up on foam adhesives and grounded by the sentiment banner, and the whole thing is framed by the dark sponging around the card-base.

I kept the color palette halloween-traditional with the black and orange, but added some blue and violet to keep things fresh and fun.

I hope you like it!
