I'm sharing ideas for just 2 of these adorable new sets, but you'll find inspiration using all of them as you hop along to the other blogs.

Sending Hugs Card | Pina Koala Stamp Set


Ok, does it get any cuter than a koala hugging a pineapple?! I started off coloring this little cutie with Chameleon pens and then die cut him using the coordinating dies. The sentiment is from the Sending Hugs Stamp Set. I stamped it on a banner die cut using the Frames & Flags Die Set and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.

I used the Tropical Leaves Stencil to create the background. To achieve this faded look, grab a foam blending tool and your favorite green color of Distress Oxide. Tap off excess ink onto a craft mat and then apply the ink heavily in one area and spread out from there. The ink with fade as you move away from the center point.

To complete the card I added a scallop edged frame die cut using the Framework Die Set. I then finished it off by layering on the other pieces and popping up the cute koala with double sided foam adhesive.

Vitamin Sea Foiled Window Card | Vitamin Sea Stamp Set


For my final card, I created a window card using the new Seashell Stencil and Therm O Web Deco Foil. To achieve the foiled background design, check out this step by step photo tutorial for Stencil and Foiled Backgrounds.

Once the background was completed I trimmed it to 4.25 x 5.5 inches to fit on the front of my card base. I then created the window by die cutting out the center of a card base using the inside scallop edged die from the Framework Die Set. I repeated this die cutting with the foiled piece making sure that the openings on the card base and foiled background would line up with each other.

I used this same die to cut another piece of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment in the center of it using Versamark Embossing Ink. I then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. To make it stand out, I then inked over the sentiment piece with a mix of Distress Oxide in Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint and wiped off any excess ink from the embossed sentiment with a paper towel. I then adhered the foiled die cut frame on top of it and placed this entire piece inside the window on the inside of the card.
