Zinia’s Custom Shine On Cards

Hello everyone, it’s Zinia here and today I’d like to show you how I customized the already amazing cards from the Shine On card kit to  take them to the next level.

I actually only used a couple of products to embellish these cards and the item I used the most was certainly the Shine On sticker book. I really love that this sticker book has a ton of amazing clear stickers that can layer beautifully on top of existing patterns.


The three cards I picked out of the box were the heart, the camera and the “yay” designs.

For the “yay” card I kept things very minimal as I didn’t want to make it too overwhelming that it’s hard to read. I just picked a few clear stickers of delicate leaves in black color and adhered them on both “Y”s of the design. I added a couple of chipboard stickers across the exclamation mark and then just finished the card with a few white enamel drops.


For the heart design, I basically filled the rest of the empty space following the same pattern. I picked small floral stickers in gold and white finish and covered all the solid parts of the card. To cover the areas that were too small to fit a sticker but still too large to leave empty, I added a couple of gold metallic enamel drops.


Last but not least, I added some embellishments on the camera card. I used a bunch of puffy hearts to surround the camera lens and again I used the beautiful floral clear stickers around it.


I really loved this card kit from the moment I got it but I never imagined how fun it would be to embellish these cards even further. I really hope you got inspired from these ideas to create something beautiful, until next time, happy crafting.

Violeta's Expo Layout


I am Violeta Scrap and I am very happy to show you a layout that I have made using some Amy Tangerine’s products of her very last collection. 


For this Project I have used some pictures of some years ago that I wanted to use for a layout, but I could not find the perfect combination of papers and embellishments for them. 

Expo Layout

But some embellishments of the latest collection of Amy Tangerine inspired me to create a layout with earth tones. 

As base of the layout I have used a paper with orange tones that combines perfectly well with the pictures. Over it I have glued a white basic cardstock where I have cut some words with my silhouette Cameo.  After that I have glued the pictures and I have decorated the layout with different scrapbooking elements. 

Expo Layout

For the title of the project I have used some thickers in black from the latest Amy Tangerine’s collection. Moreover, I have added some chipboard in white and foil. They are perfect for this project. I think that the color combination and the embellishments of this layout are perfect to work with any of the others Amy collections.

I hope you liked this project. I have enjoyed so much doing this layout. If you have any question regarding the project, you can leave it in the comments section below. Thanks!
