It's Flashback Friday!

Hi everyone!  Amy Kolling here! It's Flashback Friday and I am sharing a card using a previously released stamp set and dies called Party Pachyderms.  It's an adorable solid image set that can be stamped with so many techniques!

I went with traditional color for my elephants........some things just shouldn't be changed!  I used pigment inks for amazing coverage using my Misti.  I created a frame by diecutting the next to largest die from Dual Stitched Rectangles Dies and layered over the gray chevron paper collection called Ombre Chevrons Paper Pad.  I stamped some balloons and a banner to really give it the party "feel"!  My sentiment was stamped into a die cut from Speech Bubbles 2 die set!  Most of my elements were added using foam adhesive for a bit of dimension!  

I also used the Gift Card Holder die to make a quick birthday themed gift card includes some stitching and some cut outs to easily assemble for a gift!

Here are the items I used in my projects today that are on sale for a limited time through March 3rd, 2017, EST or while supplies last as part of our special Flashback Friday Sale!

Rustic Spring Stamps

YOU NEED TO WATCH THIS!!! ;) Jen Carter made this excellent video for you showing you everything that can be done to your card fronts with our new Color Blocking Die. In just a few minutes you will see why you need this die in your crafty stash!

Here are projects I made for today but haven't shared yet and they're some of my favorites for this release!!!

Above I started with a grey card base which I die cut with our new Quilted Stitched So Sunny Die and then using the Sweet Celebration Stamps and Dies I created my stamped, textural focal point, banner, sentiments and flowers. The banner has a slight wave to it but the stamps do not so when I add my stamp to my acrylic block I curve it a bit to better fit my banner. It's so easy to do! Definitely give this a try when you're stamping too. 

My second card features our Brush Script Spring Word Dies and Sweet Celebration Dies. Also making an appearance here is our oldie but goodie Fringe Flower Die. I forgot how much i loooooove making felt flowers with this die!!! Yippeeee!!!! My card base was die cut with our Cover Up Die Stitched Woodgrain - also a personal fave. I love how this one came together!

Last but certainly not least because it's actually my favorite card from this release is this card made with Sweet Celebration Stamps and Dies, Celebrate Word Die and Quilted Stitched So Sunny Die. I started by stamping flowers and leaves several times and experimenting with colors and I settled on a black as the accent to my flowers for this project which I thought worked well when I decided to add a black sentiment banner. Isn't this so pretty?!! I'm so proud of it! It's a keeper!

I hope you're loving everything you see here!!!
