Here’s the card card! I created an floral card showcasing our new Large Dahlia 1 stamp set!


I started off by stamping and gold heat embossing our new Large Dahlia 1 stamp set. Then I watercolored the images with Color Burst Powders. Colors I used are: Ultramarine Blue, Orchid, and Violet. I let it dry completely and fussy cut it out.


Next, I moved on to the background. I first die cut Geometric Circle Coverplate Die and then a frame using the 2nd & 3rd largest dies from our Small Double Stitched Rectangle dies. I glued the frame on the Geo Circle Coverplate die cut and cut off the excess. I popped up the background on a white A2 sized cardbase using the dimensional foam tape.


I adhered the Dahlia and leaves on the card and also added the sentiment from our new Beautiful Bettas stamp set (heat embossed in gold). I dressed up the card with Summer Skies and Lilac Blossoms Couture Mix and the card was done!


Next up, I created a card using our new Beautiful Bettas stamp set!


I started off by stamping the first layer of the Bettas with Cobalt Breeze and Blue diamond Dye inks. Then I heat embossed the second layer with Magenta embossing powder and the third with Gold powder. I didn’t have the coordinating dies at the moment so I just fussy cut the Bettas and set them aside.


Next, I masked of some parts of A2 sized Bristol Smooth cardstock and ink blended Lofty Mint Dye, Bright Emerald Dye, and Caribbean Turquoise Dye inks to create a soft mint/turquoise background. I let it dry completely and heat embossed the seaweed images with Silver Pearl embossing powder. I added stitched details on the panel using the largest layer from the Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered the panel on a white A2 sized cardbase.


I played around with the placement of the Bettas and stamped the sentiment in Noir Dye ink. I popped up the Bettas using the dimensional foam tape and finished the card off by adhering Clear Dew Drops.


Next, here’s the card I made using our new Large Dahlia 3 stamp set!


I started off by stamping the larger flower from the Large Dahlia 3 image on a smooth white cardstock in our Copic-friendly Caviar Hybrid ink. Then I colored in the image with Copic Markers. Colors I used are: YG17, YG03, YG01, Y38, YR07, YR16, Y15, Y02. I also added few dots and lines with white gel pen to add interest.


I drew in frames with black marker and stamped the sentiment from the Kind, Fierce, and Brave mini stamp set in Caviar Hyb. ink. I added bit of shadows around the frame and Dahlia with Copic Markers: BG0000, BG11, C3, C2, C1, and C00. I adhered some Key Lime, Lemon Chiffon, and Glass Slippers sequins to complete the card.



Last but not least, here’s a fun and masculine card I made showcasing our new Build a Motorcycle Dies!


OMG, I had so much fun playing around with this die set! It’s like playing with paper Legos! lol! To make life a bit easier, I kept most of the dies together (instead of clipping and separating them) except the little circles. I die cut them out multiple times with red, gray, black, and Silver Foil Adhesive paper. I added bit of Light Onyx Dye ink on gray pieces and Valentine Red Dye ink around the red pieces to add bit more interest. Assembling the seat, fenders, and exhaust helped me to position rest of the smaller pieces. When I was done assembling the motorcycle, I set it aside and moved onto the background.


I pictured the motorcycle gliding through mountain roads and our Mountains stamp set was perfect to create that scene! I layer stamped the mountains image on a smooth white cardstock in Pewter Collection Couture inks and also ink blended Soft Garden Dye, Bright Fern Dye, and Basil Mojito Dye ink on a another cardstock to create bright green spring field. I adhered them together and die cut it out using the largest die from the Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the sentiment from Motorcycle Boss stamp set and popped up the assembled motorcycle on the card to complete the card!
