Hello! Welcome! Samantha here, sharing my love of all things gold and glittery… I was so excited to get my hands on the new Craft Drops that I wanted to share a different way of using them. A perfect match with the latest release Cherry Blossom Branch die.
Step 1: Die cut the Blossom branches and adhere these to Kraft cardstock.
Step 2: Using different shades of pink and purple card – die cut the blossoms.
Step 3: Using a small brush or finger spread the Craft Drop paste on to the edges of the blossoms.
Step 4: Stamp the sentiment.
Step 5: (Optional) Add machine stitched details.
Step 6: Adhere all the Blossoms.
Step 7: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to pink cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Light Gold). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
Step 8: Die cut the remaining blossom dies. Adhere these to the blossoms on your card front.
Step 9: Embellish the card with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 card base.
I love how shimmery the gold sparkles off the blossoms – the photo doesn’t do it justice!
Hello welcome! Anyone excited about Christmas and counting down? I know… perhaps it’s still a little bit too early but at least I’m all organised in the Christmas card department with this adorable Penguin stamp.
Step 1: Adhere 10mm and 6mm Double Sided Adhesive Tape to purple card stock. Trim into strips. Remove the release sheet, apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (in Lavender). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
Step 2: Cut strips from different shades of purple cardstock.
Step 3: Adhere the strips to white paper measuring 9cm x 9cm.
Step 4: Trim off excess strips, then die cut the Large snowflake die.
Step 5: Stamp and die-cut the penguin.
Step 6: Colour the penguin in your preferred colouring medium.

Hello everyone, it’s Sanna Lippert here today with another guest design team project share. This post started off with a simple question: have you ever used the die to cut out the stamped image you just made?
I found the question very interesting, so I gave it a try and these cards are a result of that experiment.
Here is what I did: 1. Take your die cut die DIY foam stamps and apply three colours of Distress Ink and for the second set use Distress Oxide inks onto the foam stamp. 2. Spray water mist onto the inked stamp to create a “faux watercolour look”. 3. Now die cut the stamped images using the same die cut dies you used originally to create the DIY stamps. This is a little bit tricky, as you need to figure out where to place the die cut die THRU the paper. Preferably, place the image againts a window/light box, for easier placement. 4. You can either adhere the images onto the card base with a glue pen OR attach Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheets onto the stamped paper BEFORE die cutting. This makes adhering much easier. 5. Adhere onto card bases and then stamp sentiments on black cardstock with embossing ink and using white embossing powder heat set with a heat gun. 6. Attach to the card base with 3D foam pad, add faux stitching around the edges of the card with a gel pen. If you want to, apply black ink splatters for decoration.
Here is a start-to-finish video for you to watch showing the complete process:
There are, of course, easier ways to create these images: a) die cut the image from white cardstock and then ink the die cut image with stamp inks; OR b) ink a piece of white cardstock and then die cut it.
This technique I share today, shows another way of incorporating your with die cut dies created DIY stamps into cardmaking. You need a little bit of patience, but in the end you get a really nice artsy looking images!
Wishing you happy crafting, xxx, Sanna

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, I’m excited to be sharing with you my Love you to the Moon & Back Tag which features a variety of dies and stamps from Suzanne Cannon! To compliment the products from Suzanne Cannon, I’ve also used dies from the Planner Essentials and Els van de Burgt Studio.
See my step-by-step below –– I hope you enjoy my tutorial!
Step One. Die cut the large tag from the Planner Essentials – 2 die out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Two. Place the Butterflies & Stars stencil on the tag and using a blending tool with foam, blend Fossilized Amber Distress Ink through the stencil. Move the stencil as desired around the tag and blend ink through it.
Step Three. Die cut the Ornament from the Love, Joy & Peace Ornament out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the top portion of the ornament off.
Step Four. Die cut a 2 1/4″ Stitched Circle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply a sticky note a 1/8″ in on the left hand side of the stitched circle. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Moon & Back sentiment from the Soar Collection stamp set and stamp in the middle of the circle. Make sure that the majority of the moon gets stamped onto the sticky note.
Step Five. Die cut the Star spray from the Butterflies & Stars Sprays out of a piece of Sunflower Soft Finish Cardstock. You’ll need seven stars from the spray.
Step Six. Adhere the ornament to the stitched circle. Foam square the stitched circle to the right hand side of the tag.
Step Seven. Adhere the three of the stars around the Moon & Back sentiment. Adhere the other four stars as desired on the tag.
Step Eight. To finish the tag, tie a piece of twine to the top of the tag.
Thank you for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Love you to the Moon & Back Tag.
