Now that you’ve seen all of the promotions happening today (starting at 6PM CT), now it’s time for a bit of inspiration! The projects from the TE Creative Team are created with the new exclusive products you can earn that I shared above.

Check out this gorgeous card by Kavya that is created with both the new Cookie Monster embossing powder and On Occasion stamp set + die collection. Kavya stencil the Mandala stencil with Versamark ink onto Chocolate Truffle cardstock and then sprinkled on Cookie Monster embossing powder along with other metallic colors to create a beautiful mottled/aged effect. I love how Kavya also added Cookie Monster embossing on the torn edges of the cardstock!

The ‘happy birthday’ sentiment from the On Occasion stamp set is embossed with Cookie Monster embossing powder and layered onto the stencil design over metallic threads and then the ‘make a wish’ sentiment from the Mini Strips – Birthday stamp is added underneath, embossed in white on Cookie Monster cardstock.

I created a pair of cards with the exclusive Branches & Blooms Background stamp (Heather Nichols). The background is stamped with Sugar Cube ink onto Toffee cardstock and I also stamped the background with Oreo Ink on Sugar Cube cardstock, colored the images with Copic markers, and fussy cut them to use as focal images on the cards. I sprinkled a few gems from the Tiny Diamonds – Pastel pack around the images for extra sparkle!

The sentiment strips are stamped with the Simple Strips – Thanks stamp using Sugar Cube ink on Chocolate Truffle cardstock and cut out with the Simple Strips – Asymmetrical die. I added the strips to the card layered on a wider strip of Toffee cardstock that is painted with white acrylic paint and stamped with the Wood Plank Background stamp.

I’ll also feature their projects here on the blog in the next few days.
