Ways to Use My Favorite Floral Stamp Set

CatherineGeneral

I'm completely smitten with this adorable floral stamp set! Rightfully so, it's named My Favorite Florals. It's a layering set with solid florals and fun layers to add detail. The ones that look like the classic Spirograph images are especially eye catching to me!

Add a strip of patterned paper, a couple Rectangle Die layers with Hot Foil accents, a flower and a sentiment and you've got a stunning card!

You can see all these products and how this card was created on this Youtube Live Stream Replay.

We loved the Spirograph theme so much, we created this Spirodahlia Stencil which creates such a fun background. Ink Blend with a monochromatic color scheme, or choose a rainbow of colors! (I haven't made a card like that yet, but it's on my To-Do list for sure!)

A simple Rectangle Die cut with a hot foiled dotted border, a sentiment and a flower in contrasting colors make a perfect and simple card for your best friends.

These flowers are also perfect for tags. Try layering two for a pop of pattern and color behind the sentiment tag.

See how to create this tag in this Facebook Live Stream Replay.

Countdown to Christmas with WOW and Friends Day 11!

We were invited to participate in the Countdown to Christmas event with our friends at WOW! Embossing Powder to create some fun holiday-themed projects using their products and ours. My first thought was, oh yes! This is one of my favorite pastimes!

I got to work making some really cool cards and used a variety of techniques on them. I wanted to share those techniques with YOU!

Kristie Goulet

The Cheers to You Sentiments and coordinating Dies are perfection for celebration cards for retirement, weddings, anniversaries and much more! These classy sentiments work perfectly with the This Calls for Champagne Stamp Set.

Arsenia Wolf

Hooray for Confetti! This background stamp was meant to come to the party and is a festive background to your champagne cards. Arsenia inked hers in Sparkling Berry for this card and created a little cluster with her champagne on a circle die.

The Round of New Year Dies are the just right addition for all your New Year cards and projects. You can use them together or each die as a stand alone. Arsenia also pulled in the Hooray for Confetti Hot Foil Plate with this bundle to add some extra sparkle!

This Bundle Will Be Your New Best-tea!

CatherineGeneral

Have you checked out the uber cute Boba With My Best-tea Stamp Set? It's a part of the Best-tea bundle in our Bubbling Over Collection and it is bright and lots of fun!!

Ilina Crouse

The Best-tea bundle contains the A Big Hey There Word die. This one was created to really pull double duty. You can use the die cut frame with this retro font and ink blend on the layer behind for cards like this one by Ilina. She pulled colors from the Bubbleberry Patterned Paper for her blended layer.

Hanna and Erika had to get in on the fun too!! Hanna also did the ink blended background on her card but Erika just took the letters and created her own customized sentiment. This die is super versatile.

Erika Post

The Bubbleberry Patterned Paper is ready for action. On this card, Erika cut a number of circles with the Round About Dies in several different patterns and created a layered cluster focal point for her lemony drink and sentiment. How fun is the little die cut lemon and mint leaf?

Amanda is the queen of little paper projects. This little folded card features several of the patterns. Our patterned papers all coordinate and are made to shine on projects like this!

Amanda Fitterer

Don't forget the sequins! The Taiwan Sequin mix is a vibrant and sparkly mix of hot pink and bright yellow. It coordinates like a dream with the Bubbleberry paper in the bundle and is perfect on this little shaker tag.

The last item in the bundle is the Bubblin' Die which is too cute for adding some geometric dimension to your cards and projects like Ilina did on her yellow friend card.

On these cards, Ilina pulled in the new Hoorary for Confetti Background Stamp and Hot Foil Plate. These supporting products from the collection will also work so well with the Best-tea Bundle. Are you inspired to go create? Have you picked up these products yet? We can't wait to see what you make!

What is Boba?

CatherineGeneral

Our newest collection, Bubbling Over, celebrates time with friends and family celebrating and enjoying life over a wonderful beverage. Maybe it's a bottle of bubbly, a coffee drink, a smoothie or a boba…you'll be able to create fun cards with this great theme.

You may be wondering what is Boba, anyway?

Boba was created in Taiwan and is made from tapioca starch and often times called Tapioca Pearls or bubbles. Over the past few decades, Boba shops have popped up all over the US and has become wildly popular! When you go into a Boba or Bubble Tea shop, you may be amazed and even overwhelmed by the options! You’ll find an incredible array of options in these fun shops; milk tea, fruit tea, smoothies, coffee, cheese foam tea, milk cap, matcha, yogurt…all with or without the boba! You can even have bits of fruit or poppin' jellies in your drink! (poppin' jellies are my personal fav!)

I was first introduced to boba by my daughters last year and at first I didn't really care for the sweet, chewy bubbles at the bottom of my drink! But on my second trip for boba, I found that I have a fondness for these specialty drinks. Going for boba has become a special treat and a great way to have special time with the girls. They always say if you want your kid to talk, take them for a drive…I just take them for boba!

My favorite is a frozen fruit drink with boba and poppin' jellies, Eva loves strawberry matcha, Anna is down for matcha and Alana goes for a brown sugar milk tea.

Even if you don't like those chewy, sweet tapioca pearls, there are so many options at these fun shops, you're bound to find something you like!

With our new Boba With My Best-Tea Stamp Set, you can personalize your hand made cards with the recipients favorite treats!

These fun products hit the shop on Wednesday, December 8. Stay tuned to the blog for all the reveals over the next few days.

Monochromatic Stamping with Gingerbread Ink …and more ideas featuring October Club Sursee!

We'll use various stamping techniques and even work in metallics (which will be restocked by the end of November!)

See how I created this card in this Youtube Video.

Ilina Crouse

My card was inspired by this one by Ilina. Simple and clean with a pop of green!

Simple geometric shapes and a fun sentiment make for a stunning card in monochromatic browns!

Ilina Crouse

Here are more with Arabesque Pieces. I love this beautiful Spa Ink color combo Ilina picked.

Ilina Crouse
