Chinese New Year Ideas with Ivy!

We are so excited about our new Spring 2019 product release that we will be sharing at Creativation next week! We’ve been working hard to bring you lots of wonderful new stamps, dies, ink, and paper collections! Sneak Week is January 14 – 18 and we can’t wait to share everything we’ve been working on! Here we have a little sneaky peek for you!

Ivy joins us today to share traditional gifts of good luck for Chinese New Year! Her gorgeous red and glittery gold card and gift envelope are perfect for celebrating the Year of the Pig on February 5th!

Ivy started her amazing card by layering a Chili Pepper Polka Heart Backdrop over more Chili Pepper cardstock, this gives the background a classy look! Then she added a bold greeting by die cutting Cole’s ABCs from our gold glitter cardstock from the Holiday Sparkle pack. Our cute little pig from Critters on the Farm is stamped on Watercolor Wishes paper then die cut and framed in a gold glitter Stitched Scalloped Square Frame!

Ivy stamped the firecracker from our retired Happy 4th set multiple times and strung them on Black Tie cord for some super cute added detail and fun! Here’s a crafty tip from Ivy to get the letters lined up: “butt each row of letters up against the edge of a ruler or acrylic block. Then using a length of washi tape longer cover the whole line of letters. Flip over, apply glue on all them flip back over and position onto card. When securely adhered, carefully remove tape. It is such a time (and sanity saver)”

Ivy created a Small Stitched Envelope using more Chili Pepper and gold glitter cardstock! She die cut the envelope flap a second time in red to add detail and definition to the envelope!

Ivy’s beautiful card and envelope are a festive and fun addition to the store-bought red envelopes!

Thank you so much, Ivy for sharing your amazing creativity with us today!

Have an amazing day!

Audrey‘s card is amazing! The Black Licorice Polka Heart Backdrop looks great with the white hearts peeking through! I love how she added the red hearts for bold pop of color and the Let’s Toast toaster pastries look so cute in happy pastel colors!

Megan‘s mini Let’s Toast cards are so adorable! She combined fun colors of cardstock for layering the Polka Heart Backdrop! She stamped some of the toast with ink colors (Grape Jelly, Pizza Crust and Cilantro) to look like jelly, peanut butter and avocado and included the punny Let’s Toast sentiments!

Elise‘s super cute circle cards are finished with Stitched Scalloped Circle Frames! She used a Polka Heart Backdrop as a stencil to add the bright hearts to the background!

Yainea‘s card design is so adorable! She used Say Cheese, Again frames for a picture perfect Let’s Toast card! She borrowed the greeting from Love You S’more!

I love Kay‘s super sweet mix of old and new sets! The cute Critters in the ‘Burbs look so happy in this idyllic scene with plaid grass, pretty Simply Celebrate flower border and a pink heart sky courtesy of Polka Heart Backdrop: Portrait!

Melissa‘s card is so elegant! I love her pink ombre inking on the Polka Heart Backdrop: Landscape and how cool it looks layered with the gold glitter cardstock! XOXOXO Line Border is a fun and simple greeting!

What could be better than rainbow inking? Rainbow inking on a Polka Heart Backdrop!! Latisha‘s card is bold, fun and so eye-catching! I love how she added the sweet Candy Heart and the Stitched Rectangle Frame!

Lizzy created a sweet card with our Black Friday exclusive set A Little Sparkle! I love how she inked the white Woodgrain cardstock with pink and layered it behind the navy Polka Heart Backdrop layer.

Elena‘s card is totally adorable and so sweet in soft pastel shades! I love how she kept the cutout Polka Heart Backdrop on the top portion of the card! That fun greeting combines Finley’s ABCs with the Let’s Toast sentiment!
