Ivy’s Shimmer Cardstock Birdhouse Card

Ivy is bringing a bit of Spring to the blog today! Our Spring-like weather in SoCal inspired her to make a shimmery birdhouse card to brighten someone’s day!

Ivy used pretty pastels to make this Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-On card extra special. She added fun details with Mini Pop-Up Butterflies and Little Music Notes. She added the delicate die cut greeting from Small Stitched Envelope.

The Shimmer cardstock adds lots of fun texture along with the shimmery shine! And it looks great using the reverse side to add a smooth contrasting element.

Thanks so much for this sweet bit of early Spring, Ivy!

A Thoughtful Teacher Appreciation Gift by Ivy!

Ivy has created a super adorable and totally thoughtful gift to help you show your kid’s teachers how much you appreciate them!

She started with a Gift Box that she decorated with Spring Fling papers, an Outside In Stitched Apple and an Outside In Stitched Scalloped Rectangle!

Then she created 6 apple-shaped notecards to tuck inside the box! She used more Spring Fling papers and the Outside In Stitched Apple Stackables and Stitched Apple Frames to create these sweet cards!

The “just a note” die is found in the Small Stitched Envelope die set, it’s perfect for this sweet set of notecards!

With no stamping and just a few die sets, this would be a fun project to make with your kids! I’m sure their teachers will feel very appreciated!

Thank you so much Ivy for once again inspiring us to share sweet gifts with teachers! This idea is so thoughtful!

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!
