Mint Julep by Marie Johansson

Using scraps to create cards is a perfect way to use up pieces of paper or embellishments that otherwise will find their way into your trash bin. I decided to make a card from a piece of the “Mint Julep” 12×12 patterned paper from the Cotton Candy Dreams Collection. I used the paper for the little round box I created for 7 Dots Studio last month, if you remember that piece.

Tags, stickers & a Cotton Candy Dreams flair from UmWowStudio, together with a couple of flowers make the card look great.

Another great way to use up small scraps from patterned papers is to use them when you die cut. I die cut the leaves on the card from a scrap piece of paper from the Writer´s Block Collection.

This video will guide you trough how I created the card:

Thanks for stepping by today.

Sea by Eirini Tsaima

Hello dear 7 Dots friends!!
Spring is here and I’m already in such a sunny and happy mood that I’m looking forward to start swimming on and exploring the amazing Greek seas again. Last weekend, the weather was perfectly sunny and warm, so me and my family visited the Port and while I was watching the boats and fishermen I thought ‘Oh I wish I could jump in there and escape for a while!’. This was my inspiration! I found that wonderful photo on Pinterest and I made a little tutorial for you. So let’s get started.




1 First I took a sea themed paper from the Destination Unknown collection and with my Burst and Stars stencils, I added some White Prima Gesso.

2.Then I used some gold mist plus some white pearl and light green Lindy’s Stamp Gang, here and there and dried with the heat gun.

3.Next, I stamped with the – Lost and Found- and- Fortune Teller- clear stamps from 7Dots collection in white and black colors, to create a messy depth on my paper.

4.As my stamps were drying I took my chipboard and paint it in teal colour and created some paper layers with several collections from 7 Dots’s leftovers.

5.I started decorating my pictures, making some clusters and using some Sea Theme chipboards among with little shells and gause. Two flairs from the fortune Teller collection fit perfectly too.

6. Some extra establishments like Mica Gold Flakes by Prima and salt – pepper effects using Soft matte Prima Gel. Some white and black splashes here and there are also necessary to give a soft-balance to the whole work.

7.Finally my title and white gesso on my flowers and tiny details give a harmony and brightness on my lay out.

That’s it! I hope you enjoyed my Sea themed laout and you found some inspiration for your own creations. Greetings from sunny Greece!
See you soon…Love you all… Eirini

Blue ATC by Cindy Brown

Hello Gang!
Today I present ATC cards for 7 Dots Studio. I had fun with the beautiful embellishments from 7 Dots Studio. I am still in love with the brand. I love working with these. Of course I made a little Video for you which you can find down below.



I start with the beautiful paper from the Verano Azul collection. I like to make my own card from the papers pads. Especially as they are perfect for the small projects. Afterwards, I play with stickers, tags and labels. A little bit of splatters and the project is finished.



Please enjoy the video.
