Awesome Lots of Love Inspiration with Silvia!

Our lovely and talented Guest Designer, Silvia is back to share another amazing card to inspire you for our Lots of Love challenge! She loves baking goodies for her loved ones so that was her inspiration for this baking themed card.

To create the background, Silvia started with white woodgrain cardstock and did some colorful ink smooshing! Next she added texture by die cutting a Valentine Border to use as a stencil with Distress Grit-Paste, creating a sweet heart border!

She stamped and colored images from Baked with Love, Special Delivery, Love Letters and Jump for Joy to create the happy scene! And then she die cut the greeting from Finley’s ABCs out of Tropical Shimmer cardstock!

To add even more fun to this amazing design, Silvia created three yummy Stitched Cupcakes with colorful sprinkles! I love how this beautiful card combines so much fun and happiness!

Thank you so much, Silvia for sharing your gorgeous Lots of Love cards with us! We are so happy you joined us as our Guest Designer for this challenge! Big hugs!


The Lots of Love challenge will be open until Sunday, January 31st at 11:59PM ET. We are looking forward to seeing your projects!

Christy’s Pizza My Heart Inspiration

Hello friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Lots of Love Challenge! Today I decided to combine the cute little mice from A Creature Was Stirring with Pizza My Heart. These little mice are perfect to bake up a whole lot of fun — and not just for Christmas! I stamped my images in Jet Black Ink and trimmed them out with their matching dies.

For the focal panel, I die cut some patterned paper from the Hello Sunshine 6×6 with the second largest Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables. I cut those papers in half to create some wallpaper and a tablecloth. Then I cut the Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frames out of white cardstock and glued the patterned papers to the center rectangle. Then I adhered the frame over top.

I took another sheet of the Hello Sunshine paper and die cut that with the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables and glued that to a guava card base. Then I popped the focal panel up with foam tape and adhered my images. To finish off the card, I added a sentiment stamped in Guava Ink that I die cut with the Everyday Sentiment Banners.

If you would like to see how this card came together, you can check out the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty!

And I hope I have inspired you to play along in our Lots of Love Challenge. We can’t wait to see what you create!

A Special “Lots of Love” Delivery with Caly!

It’s Caly with you today.  Thanks so much for joining me for an interactive Special Delivery card!  Challenge 93 gives you the opportunity to create a Valentine’s Day card or a card for someone you love!  I have so much fun creating interactive cards and hope my card today inspires you!

I stamped and colored my images from Special Delivery and Special Delivery Box Add-On for today’s card using Copic markers.

My interactive panel is stenciled in Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink using the Cloudy Stencil. Then I used the Outside In Stitched Rectangles to die-cut the cloud panel for my Waving Pull-Tab Starter Set mechanism for the owl’s wings.

I also used patterned paper from the Hello Sunshine Remix Petite Paper Pack and die-cut a stitched border using the largest die from the Outside In Stitched Rectangles.

I had so much fun creating the interactive portion of this card and creating my scene of this busy owl delivering his mail and package!  I hope you enjoyed it!
