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.

Recently we debuted our fabulous Celebrate You collection, but let’s take a look back at a collection that made its appearance last year.  You might remember some pretty spectacular products from our Sending Sunshine collection. Let’s take a look at some inspiring cards created with goodies from this inspiring release from 2018!

First up is this gorgeous project from Yana Smakula:

Yana’s navy beauty features the Bohemian Lace background stamp. We love how she accented points of the stamp with Nuvo Drops in Carnation Pink. Want to know how Yana created this beauty? You can watch her in action on YouTube HERE. You can see Yana’s original post HERE.

And let’s not forget this simple yet wonderful design from Cathy Zielske:

The festive Star Stream die shimmers in gold against a deep navy background on this graphic design by Cathy. We love how she used three sections of the Star Stream and placed her sentiment between the second and third line of stars. Magnificent design! You can find Cathy’s original blog post HERE. In addition, Cathy shared how she created this card in a video that you can see HERE.

And finally this fun card from Lisa Addesa:

Lisa started with a subtle background that she stamped in gray using the Deco Diamonds background stamp which was a part of the Sending Sunshine release. She then die cut all four of the Four Seasons dies in colors that worked well for each season. You can check out Lisa’s original blog post HERE and see the sentiment inside the card that uses the Four Seasons Sayings stamp set.
