Throwback Thursday – Fabulous Projects You Might Have Missed!

Throwback Thursday Simon Says Stamp

Welcome to another edition of Throwback Thursday—a trip back in time! For each throwback, we’ll be spotlighting fantastic cards and projects using products from previous releases. The new stuff is always SO fun, but think about all of those great products you’ve collected and set aside. They are STILL AWESOME! And we want to inspire you with fantastic inspiration from our creative archives.

Soon, we’ll be releasing another batch of fresh and inspiring products (can’t wait!), but in the meantime, let’s take a look back at a collection that debuted last year.  You might remember some pretty spectacular products from last year’s Best Days collection. Let’s take a look at some inspiring cards created with goodies from our Best Days release!

First up is this gorgeous project from Amanda Korotkova:

Amanda Korotokova Simon Says Stamp February 19 Throwback Thursday Even More Spring Flowers stamp set and coordinating dies and Big Thanks Words stamp set

Amanda’s stunning design comes together with the gorgeous Even More Spring Flowers stamp set and dies from our Best Days release. She white heat embossed the flowers, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, and then used the coordinating dies to cut out the beautiful flowers and leaves. The sentiment from the Big Thanks Words stamp set finishes her design perfectly. You can see Amanda’s original post HERE, and you can see how she created this glorious creation on YouTube HERE.

Next, let’s throw it back to this super cute design from Nichol Spohr:

The Picture Book Walrus and Croc were released with our Best Days products, and Nichol used them both on this delightful design. The You Da Best die and sentiment from the Emphatic stamp set give this card a whole lot of whimsy! Nichol shows you how she created this adorable design HERE on YouTube. You can find her original blog post HERE.

And let’s not forget this beautiful project from Leigh Houston:

Leigh’s pretty design has me longing for spring with bright pops of color! She used the Blooming Circle die with saturated colors of felt. I love how she designed the card to have the die going off the edges. It really gives it a whole lot of energy! You can find Leigh’s original blog post HERE. You’ll love her smart tips for die cutting felt.

Thanks for throwing it back with us and checking out these cool projects from four talented ladies!

  1. I love TT as although I don’t have some of these sets, they are still on my wish list. It is great to see that they are still very on the ‘radar’. These are all SUPER CUTE! TFS!

  2. Lovely projects from the past. I often use your gallery’s, especially the card kit one to get inspiration when working with my card kit.

  3. Always fun to go back and look at ideas and techniques. We get so wrapped up in the new products we tend to forget what we already have in our stash. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Great ideas for revisiting old sets. We’re all guilty of using the new stuff and then forgetting about all the stuff we loved in the past!

  5. I love “throwback Thursday”. People’s mind & situation change over the time, and back then, we didn’t pay attention but this time, stamps/dies & design get your attention as if seen for the first time and order them and make something really nice. I love it! :)

  6. Awesome cards, I doubted if I had seen Amanda’s card so I just checked her blog and watched the video. Great card and love how she coloured the flowers.
    I din’t missed the other cards for sure, that Walrus I remmembered!
    But it is always nice to have a look back, I love this serie. Thank you so much and have a great weekend.

  7. I love throwback thrursday! Always the best of the best cards are posted. So much eye candy in place! Thanks for making my day a little bit better.
