This week Cathy Andronicou explores all of the creative possibilities of our new die, 51-225 Out to Sea, one of the many from our new collection A Little Bit of Sunshine. So grab your favorite Creative Dies, stamps, and let’s set sail!

Today Cathy has isolated portions of Creative Die, 51-225 Out to Sea, in order to give this card a completely different look than yesterday’s creation.

This fun technique of using only portions of a Creative Die allows you to get even more use from your dies. For example, if you were using our Creative Die, 51-233 Folk Flower, you could also separate (trim with scissors) a few of the flowers and leaves to use as embellishments.

One Die, Four Ways

May 2, 2016

This week Cathy Andronicou explores all of the creative possibilities of our new die, 51-225 Out to Sea, one of the many from our new collection A Little Bit of Sunshine. So grab your favorite Creative Dies, stamps, and let’s set sail!

Cathy’s first card has us ready for sunset on the sea! She simply die cut 51-225 Out to Sea from black cardstock and mounted it to a brayered background.

The black outline against the colorful sea and sky has great visual impact. This technique would also be stunning with these new Creative Dies, too. The feathered friends of our Creative Die, 51-232 Layered Scene, would love to be chirping away at sunset.

And can’t you just imagine this beautiful tree, Creative Die 51-226 Serenity, as a gorgeous sillouette against a sunset background?

Mother’s Day with Mimi

April 30, 2016

mothers-day-banner

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and Micheline “Mimi” Jourdain is here today with beautiful card inspiration. Mimi’s elegant style is perfectly suited for creating cards for mom or any special woman we may wish to celebrate on this upcoming holiday. And even more, the stamps Mimi has used from our A Little Bit of Sunshine collection are designed with versatility in mind and will continue to be ink-worthy throughout the rest of the year.

What mom wouldn’t love a bouquet of roses on Mother’s Day? Sending them is easy this year with our Slapstick/Cling stamp, 40-428 Scented Beauty.

Just look at those beautiful blooms by Mimi!

Mimi’s next card reminds us of a bouquet of fresh wildflowers… mom would certainly like that; right?

To create her all over floral design, Mimi has repeatedly stamped the flowers from the upper left hand corner of our transparent set, 30-343 Floral Fusion.

And if you’re looking for the perfect sentiment for Mother’s Day, don’t be afraid to think outside-the-box. A sentiment such as “you are wonderful” suits Mother’s Day but can also be used for many other card creations. For her cards, Mimi used our transparent sets, 30-356 Treasured Sentiments and 30-350 Sentiment Collection.

Thanks, Micheline “Mimi” for inspiring us yet again!
