Thank you so much for stopping by today!
The technique I used to make this envelope is a CASE of Kristina’s Holiday Card Series 2016 Day 25. Her cards are my absolutely favourite in the the series. Love the technique. So I did exactly the same. I watercoloured my watercolour paper using Gansai Tambi watercolor blue hues. After the paper was dry. I die cut the panel using the envelope die. And then ran the die cut using a Next Level Wave embossing folder. Love the texture on the panel. It is difficult to show the texture on the envelope. But trust me it is there Lol! Then I assembled the envelope. This envelope fits an gift card perfectly.
To decorate it I used Simon Says Stamp’s Snowflakes for the Season die to die cut the leftovers of the watercoloured panel as well as a silver cardstock. I used the largest two of the die in the set. Then layered the glued them with the silver die cut in the middle. I added a clear droplet at the centre. I adhered this on the envelope with a vellum square die cut cut using the die from Lucy Envelope Die. I also die cut a rectangle panel using another of die from the envelope die set and the left over watercoloured panel. I stamped the sentiment from Arctic Christmas stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I adhered this panel on the envelope using foam adhesives.
You can change colours while the alphabets are arranged on MISTI to stamp a few card fronts. And also emboss a few more frames and elements to mass produce the design. Just vary the placement of the focal cluster and you get a variety of Christmas card.
I absolutely love the Typecast: Cary stamp set. Bold alphabets and numbers. It is a must have stamp set in my collection. The Framed stamp set is gorgeous to add layers and love the hand drawn images. Of course, the In a Word cutaways are fabulous. Big, bold and great focal point word dies. This release by Winnie & Walter is fabulous.
Hope you are inspired by my cards. Thanks for stopping by.
I used the Brushed Heart background stamp as tone on tone for the background with Stroke of Genius Valentine as the focal point.
Second card just uses the Stroke of Genius Valentine stamp set. Since I love the rainbow stamping, I used another of the brush heart image from the stamp set to do exactly the same.
On this card, I used various pigment inks to stamp rainbow of colours. Love this brushed heart image on the stamp set. It has a lots of solid portion on the stamp so it can ink up a lot of colour and stamp.
Sentiment is a combination of Loved Script die cuts, stacked and glued with black glitter on the top for added interest and dimension. And the smaller sentiment from How Sweet It Is stamp set white heat embossed on Oreo strip of cardstock. Embellished with sequins and Nuvo crystal drops. All the supplies used to make this card is listed below.
The next product I am showcasing is the Conversation Hearts Embossing folder. I made a set of cards using this embossing folder and All You Need Is Love stamp set.
Once the inks dry, they even out. I took photos before the ink dry. The background still looks gorgeous. I have used Lemon Meringue, Cookie Monster, Granny Smith, Mint Julep and Lollipop. Just make sure you wash off the embossing folder after every colour. Otherwise the previous colour will contaminate the newer one. I ran the embossing folder under my tap with a light rub using a sponge.
The sentiment is from All You Need Is Love stamp set white heat embossed on a stitched rectangle die cut using Stitched Rectangle Stacklets and Oreo cardstock. Here are the individual cards.
Hope you like all my projects this release. All the new goodies from the release can be found at Taylored Expressions store.
Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Shopping!
For the second card, I did tone on tone technique using the Musical Background stamp.
I stamped the musical background stamp on Watermelon cardstock and sparkly clear embossed to get tone on tone background. I then sponged Cherry Pop TE dye ink on the edges to accentuate the embossed background a bit. For the focal point, I die cut a stitched rectangle die using TE vellum cardstock. The sentiment is from the new Love Script die and How Sweet It Is stamp set. On the Love Script sentiment die cut I added Nuvo Pink Mousse to add the shimmer. I also accentuated the sentiment the musical background with Little Bits Love Notes dies die cut using red glitter cardstock.
The second product I am showcasing is the Little Bits Record die. This record die is so cute.
Absolutely adorable with it score circle lines. I decided to highlight the black vinyl record with some colour on the background like a colour block.
I started with a 4″ x 5.25″ Sugar Cube cardstock panel. Then I measured and drew pencil lines to create six squares. I masked around each squares and sponged TE dye inks – Candy Corn, Cookie Monster, Granny Smith, Lemon Meringue, Plum Punch and Lollipop. Then I removed the masks and erased the pencil lines to reveal the colour blocks. I then die cut six records out of the die and six inner circles as well. I sponged the inner circles with the same inks and adhered to the centre of the records. I randomly adhered the records at the centre of each block using foam adhesives making sure the colours on the record and background do not match. I adhered this panel on the Sugar Cube card base. Then the sentiment from All You Need Is Love stamp set is stamped using Oreo hybrid ink on to a strip of Sugar Cube cardstock and adhered on the card front as shown.

I added details to the owls and banner using white gel pen. Then adhered the white panel on the red scalloped panel using foam adhesive and then flush glued on the white card base. Absolutely love the cuteness overload of the owls and ornament details.

This is such a fun stamp and die combo. Particularly like the pun sentiments. I made two cards using the stamp set.
On this card, I used the same cacti stamp for both background as well as focal point. On the Sugar Cube card front I stamped the cacti image using Earl Grey dye ink. Then I die cut a smaller stitched rectangle Sugar Cube panel using Stitched Rectangle Stacklet. On the middle of the panel, I stamped a pink brush stroke image from Stroke of Genius 2 stamp set and Strawberry Milkshake ink. I stamped the same cacti image on a scrap piece of Sugar Cube cardstock, coloured using copic markers and die cut using the coordinating die. I adhered this on the centre of the stitched panel using foam adhesive. The sentiment is white heat embossed on a strip of Oreo cardstock. Finally embellished with sequins. This panel is adhered on the card front using foam adhesives.
My second card feature both the cacti images from the Lookin’ Sharp stamp and die combo.
On my second card I stamped both the cacti images randomly on a piece of Sugar Cube cardstock. Coloured them using copic markers. Then I masked all the coloured images using masks die cut using the coordinating dies. This gives a nice white edge to the coloured images. After masking the images, I used distress inks Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean to sponge over. The centre of the panel has the lighter shade of blue and the edges have the darker shade of blue. I spattered clean water to the panel. This adds depth and texture to the panel. I removed all the masks and die cut the panel using Let’s Talk Edger 2 die.
