Minimalist Hello Card with Taheerah

Hey everybody! Happy Thursday! It's Taheerah here with you today to share a card!

I've so loved the dies from the most recent Neat & Tangled release - particularly the Hello There die and the awesome Embroidery Hoop die! Today I'm bringing them both together but with a minimalist look!

Here's what I came up with:


I love how this turned out!


I impressed both dies into my white cardstock for a totally minimal look that still packs a punch! I then stamped the stars from Planner Blocks and selectively inked the sentiment from Little Santa Girl for some contrast. I added some splatter for a punch of colour to complete the look!


I hope this card brought some fun to your day! Thanks for stopping by!

Warm Wishes / combining stamp sets

Hello there!
Mayuri here to share a card that uses the whimsical images from a couple of stamp sets combined with the versatile sentiments from another. This is such a fun way to truly stretch your stamps!

I began by stamping the macarons and the teacups from 
Paris with a pale blue pigment ink straight onto a white card base. I then stamped the Eiffel Tower image and some of the smaller images from Dala Horse with black dye ink for a bit of contrast.

I also flicked some Tarnished Brass Distress Stain over the card base for some interest. I die-cut the embroidery hoops using the Hoop die first from some dark brown pattern paper, and then from some kraft cardstock for stability. I adhered the two pieces together to create a thicker embellishment and then adhered that onto the card front around the Eiffel Tower, trimming off the excess.

For the sentiment, I turned to another versatile stamp set - Winter Wishes. I partially stamped a sentiment with black dye ink onto some scrap pattern paper and then trimmed into two strips before foam mounting to the card.

To finish, I embellished with a few sequins from the Mermaid Tail mix. I hope you'll have a go at combining stamp sets that you own to see how far you can stretch them!

Thanks for stopping by ;-)

hello there.




Hello there!  It's Amy sharing a clean & simple card:


I'm a big fan of using color when I design cards, how about you?

This particular project uses the Falling Hearts stamp.  This is definitely not just for Valentine's Day!  I love it heat embossed in white!

I ADORE the new Hello There Nice and Neat Die:



Isn't it simply pretty?  I die cut the sentiment using a pale green card stock and black craft foam and layered them together.  It gives the card a bit of BAM♡

I'm linking up over at the Little Tangles Challenge Blog:


The colors were inspired by Colour Me Challenge, which I missed the deadline but wanted to do a shout out on the awesome colors!

Thanks so much for stoppin' by!

Be Joyful Always

Hello! Anna is here to share my card 'Be Joyful Always'. I like white color in cardmaking, I like, when card is done almost of only whate cardstock. It feels so soft and light. And I like some touches of bright spots on such cards, so I wanted to create something like it this time.


Another idea was to use cover plate die cut, but only partially. I cut off the top and bottom parts of the die cut such way that it has become the height of four and a quarter inches. And than sticked with the foam tape on the white background. Alsomst ready! Just need some final details, that gived the pretty look to the card.


I stamped the sentiment from the Gardenia Blooms Journaling card on one of the negative parts from the die cut and pur it on the foam tape too. And as colored details - some flowers and sequins.

May Guest Designer: Kathy Racoosin!

Our May guest designer, Kathy Racoosin, is back today with two more jaw dropping cards! For today she used our Scandinavian Flowers set to show two ways to use part of a stamp set, in this case the grasses.
For her first card, she stamped the grasses with some dye ink from simon says stamp and colored with copic markers. stamped the sentiments and added some white dots. 
For the second card, she layered the grass using memento black ink. Colored the flowers with copic markers. Then she used some “sea glass” ink from SSS and inked up the “festive chevron stencil” using a dauber. Stamped the sentiment in black dye ink and layerd up my card. 


Simply stunning!  Thank you so much, Kathy!

Hope you all have an awesome weekend! See you next week :)

SImple Floral Backgound with Send Pretty Mail

Hello, Rachel here today sharing a super simple project with you. I adore the small floral images in Send Pretty Mail - they are perfect for a large focal point image or creating a subtle background with all the little elements.
I grabbed some spring colors and just started stamping away without much thought or planning! The nice thing about this set is that the images are small enough that you can always fill in gaps with teeny tiny dots, leaf sprigs or the tulip - it makes creating backgrounds really easy and fun. I made sure to alternate the direction of the stamps as I repeated them down my white rectangle, but other than that it was just relaxing and fun stamping.
I wrapped a piece of seam binding around the stamped panel (remember that stuff from about a year ago? I have hoards still!) and mounted it on a lime green card base with foam adhesive.  I also embellished a few of the circles with glitter. The sentiment is from another favorite, Paper Cut Flowers.

That is all for me today. Make sure to stop back again this week for more incredible inspiration from the design team and have a great day!
