NEW RELEASE! Celebrate Modern One-Layer Style

March 25, 2015

With the arrival of spring, we want to make sure we’ve got you covered for upcoming special events… graduations, Mother’s Day, and even Father’s Day, too. That’s why we’re popping in this week with a BRAND NEW mini release bringing you new stamps and Creative Dies! Check out the complete Time to Celebrate catalog HERE and be sure stop by each day this week for card ideas including supplies and instructions. All new products will be available in our online store beginning Friday, March 27.


Before we take a peek at the Slapstick/Cling stamps and Creative Dies that are a part of this new release, we have one more day of inspiration with marvelous miniatures.


The stylish sentiments and bold image design of 30-295 For the Grad, make it easy to create modern, one-layer cards.


Begin by masking and inking to create a color blocked background and add tone on tone stamping to the background. Then, remove your mask and add your focal point stamping using colored embossing powder. By embossing, your focal point images will automatically be in the foreground of your modern design.


Card design also features 30-284 Sprigs.

Download complete supplies and instructions HERE.

For a more natural feel, mask off curved lines and create a focal point with hummingbirds. By stamping the birds in black they pop against the bright background colors. And we bet those silhouette flowers in red look familiar…they are from the new Marvelous Miniature transparent set, 30-294 the Sweetest.



Card design also features 30-285 You + Me and 51-053 A Pocket Full.

Download complete supplies and instructions HERE.

Whether you’re stamping for mom, dad, graduation, or “just because,” the beautiful wild flower sillouettes of 30-294 the Sweetest, are also fantastic for simple, inky stamping.


Download complete supplies and instructions HERE.

    I rarely get to do graduation cards, but of all the sets out there, I’d choose this one as it’s the sweetest and can be used in many other ways, too. Speaking of versatile, I can see The Sweetest is going to be a ‘go-to’ set!!

    These are very different from the usual store sold graduation cards and I think so much nicer. What a wonderfully nice card fr a senior to receive, knowing it was personally made just for them and that it is their own unique card!

  38. Judy Bartnik permalink
    March 25, 2015 8:10 am

    Love the idea of the bird released from the cage as a graduation card! A graduate leaves the “safety” of home. All the stamps are very nice. Only what I expect from Penny Black!
