Thinking of Spring Blooms

June 27, 2017

Hello to all,

It is Anita here with my post for the Colouring Design Team! I love colouring stamped images and Elizabeth Craft Designs has beautiful stamps that can be used on many projects.

I really love their flower stamps and that’s what I have showcased here today.

I have used the Spring Blooms Clear stamp set along with a corner die. In this card, I used the large flower for the main images and the smaller flower for the background. The details follow.

Flower Cards: I Love Fussy Cutting

June 25, 2017


By Judi Kauffman

I admit it: I love ‘fussy cutting’! I know it’s not everybody’s favorite activity, but I really like sitting down with a pair of fine point scissors to cut around complicated shapes even when I have dies that would do the job and significantly reduce the time it takes to do a project. Dies leave a bit of a halo around the shapes, fussy cutting goes right up to the outlines. Yes, I do like to hand-hem what I sew, too. And I hand-baste rather than using pins when I sew a seam on the machine. I think it’s the slow pace that appeals to me, along with the hands-on aspect.

Today’s projects include stamping, coloring, and fussy cutting for the flowers, but I did include some die cutting for the Shimmer Sheetz branches, tag reinforcement and corners, the tag itself, and the Garden Fairies on the bonus card.

Zoo Babies Panda Baby Card

June 12, 2017
Zoo Babies Panda Baby Card

Hi everyone,

It’s Frances here and it is my turn to post a tutorial for the Coloring Design Team. Today I am playing with the Krista Schneider Zoo Babies stamp set and coordinating dies to create a baby card. For some reason I seem to be making girl baby cards lately, but this card could easily be changed to suit a boy just by changing the colors of patterned papers used.

Zoo Babies Panda Baby Card

Here is how I created my card:

Step 1 – 

  • Cut a piece of pale pink cardstock so it measures 4 1/4 inches x 11 inches. Score and fold at 5 1/2 inches to create a top folding card.
  • Use the second largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles die set to cut a rectangle from dark pink cardstock.
  • Use the second largest rectangle from the Fitted Rectangles die set to cut a rectangle from designer paper (from ModaScrap Sweet Vintage Rose Patterned Paper Pack).
  • Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 3 3/4 inches x 3 inches
  • Cut a piece of dark pink cardstock that measures 3 3/4 inches x 3 1/4 inches. 
  • Layer all pieces onto the folded card using photo above as a guide.

Step 2 –

  • Use the third smallest square from the Stitched Squares die set and die cut a square from designer paper.
  • Use the fourth smallest square from the Dotted Scallop Squares die set and die cut a square from dark pink cardstock.
  • Use a trimmer to cut the square in half diagonally (see photo above).
  • Adhere one half of the square to the left hand side of the card using foam tape. (refer to photo below).

Step 3 –

  • Using the Zoo Babies Clear Stamp set, stamp out the bear; present and single flower onto White Soft Finish Cardstock using black ink.
  • Use coordinating dies to die cut each image and adhere to card using foam tape for the bear and present.
  • Decorate the edges of the white rectangle and the half square panel using Glitter Borders Peel-Off Stickers.

Step 4 –

  • Stamp a sentiment from the Baby Clear Stamp set to the lower right hand corner of card using black ink.

Step 5 – The Inside of Card:

  • Use the second largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles die set to cut a rectangle from dark pink cardstock.
  • Use the second largest rectangle from the Fitted Rectangles die set to cut a rectangle from designer paper (from ModaScrap Sweet Vintage Rose Patterned Paper Pack).
  • Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 3 3/4 inches x 3 inches
  • Cut a piece of dark pink cardstock that measures 3 3/4 inches x 3 1/4 inches.
  • Layer all pieces together and adhere to the inside of the card using photo above as a guide.

Step 6 –

  • Use the remaining half of the square we cut in half in step 2 to adhere to the left hand side of card.

Step 7 –

  • Stamp the “Baby” and “Girl” sentiments from the Baby Clear Stamp set to the white panel.
  • Color the ‘Baby” sentiment as desired.
  • Stamp the trio flowers from the Zoo Babies Clear Stamp set to the top and bottom right hand corner of white panel.

Thank you for  stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.
