Creative Findings

Hello there, PF fans! I’m so excited to be part of the Pinkfresh Studio April Essentials Release Blog Hop. So many new, amazing stand alone dies that every crafter needs in their stash.

You should have arrived from the super talented Emily Midgett‘s blog.

Today I’m sharing four cards created with some of the sets. I had a lot of fun playing with them.

The first pair features the Inverted Stitched Scallop Circles. Both cards have a simple design, enhanced by the pretty floral bouquets of the Fancy Blooms Stamp Set and the new Pinkfresh paper collections.

For the first card, I used the bigger scallop circle to create an opening in the center of my 4”x5.25” panel, which I had trimmed from the Being Us paper in the Joyful Day collection.

I backed the opening with the True Story patterned paper and added tiny sequins all around the…

Hello again!

Stephanie Low recently launched her Just Add Color collection for Spellbinders and I’m happy to help pass the info along with a card that I made for today. I thought it was perfect for The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge!

I started by stamping and masking the flowers to arrange this floral spray. It makes for a simple one-layer card so it’s often all about the coloring. I honestly thought this was going to be a quick card when I started, but I ended up spending a long time coloring to give the pink flowers the intensity that it has.

Copics: RV00, RV11, RR85, RV56 (Pinks)
V000, V01, V15 (Purples)
G21, G82, YG07, G05 (Greens)
Y13 (Yellow)

After coloring, I splattered the entire panel with some watered-down white acrylic paint to give it some interest. For the sentiment, I used the February Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of…

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s February 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop! We’ve got so much to share with you today and I’ve created with several new sets using different color mediums and techniques. I’ve got lots to share, so I’ll jump right in.

My first card uses the new Dotted Blooms stamp set. I decided to emboss the images in gold because I couldn’t decide what color I wanted the branches and stems. Then I used the Dotted Blooms Mask Stencil to apply Rubellite ink to the flowers using an ink-blending brush. The background is created by ink-blending Altenew inks in Desert Night, Dusk, Ocean Waves, and Sea Glass. I splattered the ink-blended panel white and black ink before adhering the images to the panel using foam adhesive. The sentiment is stamped on black cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder.

For my second card, I used Baroque Motifs and…

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew January 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Agnieszka Malyszek’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first card, I’m featuring the Wonderland Stamp Set.
I simply stamped images on 4.25″ x 5.5″ watercolour paper panel using black pigment ink, and then loosely watercoloured all stamped images with the Watercolor 36 Pan Set.

For my second card, I’m featuring the Garden Picks 3D Die Set.
Altenew team is an expert on flowers! This new 3D flower dies are absolutely, undoubtedly, marvelously beautiful!! It is my most favourite among the entire January release products!
I just followed the instruction, made 3D flowers & leaves, then adhered them on white paper panel. I decorated the left side of the panel with Dotted Washi Tape.

Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6…

Hero Arts – Lily Pond

Caly Person

Hi Friends!!

Have you all seen the 2019 Hero Arts Catalog? I’m really excited I got to create samples for it this year and today, I’m sharing a card made using the Lily Pond Fancy Die. Please note – this new die will not be available for purchase until February 15th. I realize this is a bummer, but we will have a Release Blog Hop (on Feb 15th) and I will share this again to remind you :). I just wanted to share this as a preview so you can get excited and know what’s to come!

Koi and lily ponds are representative of my culture so I thought it was fun to make this card. It’s super simple with such a detailed die! I used a white A2-sized panel and centered the Lily Pond Fancy Die on it and ran it through my die-cutting machine along with the…

Imagine Blog

by Iris Rodriguez

Wooden wall hanging with a your are loved sentiment on a flying clay heart made with Tsukineko and Imagine color products.

This “You are Loved” stamp inspired this whole piece. Made me think of those around us that you love and think about every day. Then you think if they are happy, sad or going through a tough time. You so badly want them to know that no matter what is going on, they are loved. Send them a reminder this with wall hanging made using a wooden substrate with embellishments. Wanted to make a custom-made heart to fit the stamp; made it from polymer clay. The wooden substrate is treated with Walnut inks. Check out how this project is made.

Skill: Advanced
Time: 1.5 Hours


Step 1

Begin by selecting wooden untreated cradled board (shadowbox like frame) or other substrate that is made of untreated but finished wood.

Step 2

Using the palette knife and Iridescent Turquoise Creative medium stencil a background onto the board…

Blue Birthday Peony

Check out this gorgeous card by Vera Yates using the Peony Close Up Cling Background stamp from @TheTonStamps via

The Season

Hi peeps! How’s it going? Vera here, bringing you mid week inspiration on behalf of The Ton.

With the recent anniversary release, there are many beautiful sets for me to play with. But, I have one set that I didn’t get a chance to play with during the release party, the Peony Close Up Cling Background stamp! And, am pretty excited the way my card turned out using this set.

To start, I stamped and heat embossed the flower with Rose Gold embossing powder on a piece of watercolor cardstock. Then I watercolor the flower with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set. With the winter weather still going strong, I decided to color it with cool tone. Let it dry.

On hindsight, I should have taped the paper before I watercolor it, so the paper stay flat, but I forgot. Luckily, strong good glue, helped to straighten the paper. 🙂 Die…

Christmas Poinsettia

Check out this gorgeous Poinsettia card by Vera Yates for The Ton.

The Season

Hi peeps! Vera here today. Only 6 more days till Christmas! And, yes, yours truly is still working on her Christmas cards. Hah… I am a firm believer in that better late than never in this case.  😉

Anyway, for today, I decided to play with the beautiful Coming Up Poinsettia set.

I ink up the gradient background by using masking tape to cover the border. Once that done, I stamped, heat embossed the poinsettia with Rose Gold embossing powder on a piece of watercolor cardstock. Then I went to town watercolor this beauty. Let dry.

Now, when I am stress out sometime I feel the need to do fussy cutting and that’s what I did here. I don’t know what is it about fussy cutting that help me in calming down my stress or frustration. It’s like cheap therapy. Hah!!

Once that done, I layer the panel on dark…
