Just Bee-cause

June 26, 2016

It’s Jacky here. For my project today I have created a Stand Up Card using the new Dotted Scallop Circles and Ovals and Bead Strings 2 dies from Els Van de Burgt Studio. I have also used the Strawberries die set and clear stamps from Joset Designs.

Here’s how I created my card:

Step 1: Cut a piece of Olive Twist Soft Finish Cardstock measuring 5″ x 11″. Score at 3″ and 5-1/2″. Fold along score lines. Lightly score at 8-1/4″ but do not fold.

Step 2: Cut a piece of Celadon Green Soft Finish Cardstock of 2 ½” x 5″. Adhere the piece to the bottom of the card base.

Step 3: Using one of the Bead Strings 2 cut 3 bead strips in Olive Twist Soft Finish Cardstock backed with Clear Double Sided Adhesive prior to cutting.

Step 4: Die cut one Dotted Scallop Circle from White Soft Finish cardstock using the smallest Dotted Scallop Circle in the set. Use black ink to stamp ‘Just Bee-cause” onto the circle.

Step 5: Die cut one Stitched Oval from White Soft Finish Cardstock using the third largest die in the set.

Step 6: Die cut one Dotted Scallop Oval from Celadon Green Soft Finish Cardstock using the second largest die in the set.

Step 7: To create the Strawberries: Die cut one large solid strawberry and one small solid strawberry from Sunflower Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut one large and one small strawberry stamen and one large and one small strawberry overlay from White Soft Finish Cardstock backed with Clear Double Sided Adhesive prior to cutting. Using a Mini Ink Blending Tool to apply the ink, color overlays with Barn Door; color stamens with Mowed Lawn Ink. (Clean the tool between colors.) When ink is dry, assemble strawberries and adhere to card front as shown.

Step 8: To create the leaves: Die cut two strawberry leaves from White Soft Finish Cardstock. Color the leaves with Mowed Lawn Ink applied with a Mini Ink Blending Tool. For best results, work on top of a non-stick craft mat (or the leftover backing of an adhesive sheet) and start making circular motions with the inked tool while it is on the mat, working toward the edge of the cardstock and then onto the shape (edge to center so the darkest ink is at the outer areas). Tip: Use light hand pressure. You can always add more ink as needed.

Step 9: To create the bees: Die cut two bee bodies from black and yellow Velvet Adhesive Sheets. Die cut wings from White Soft Finish Cardstock. The bee with the open wings will go on the bottom Celadon Green Color piece to create the Stand-up Helper card. Refer to the photo.

Step 10: Assemble card – Adhere the white Stitched Oval to the Green Dotted Scallop Oval.  Adhere the strawberries,  leaves and one bee to the white oval. Adhere the main Oval panel to the lower half of the front of the card. Use 3D tape to add dimension to the small strawberry.  Add Bead Strings accents. Add the second bee as explained in step 9.

I hope you enjoy this project and have a wonderful Sunday!

Jacky.

Happiness

April 10, 2016

 Hello, Crafty Friends. It’s Jacky here today. I believe that our objective in life is to be happy and I was inspired by this to create a card using the beautiful sentiment “Happiness does not come from without, It comes from within” from Susan’s Garden Club, combined with one of my favorite dies, Stitched Squares from Els Van de Burgt Studio.

Easter Surprise Gift Bag

March 27, 2016

Hello everyone. 

It’s Jackeline here and today I would like to share a quick and fun  idea for Easter, a gift bag to fill with surprise treats. This last-minute project was designed to fill your home with thoughts of ‘Hoppy’ Spring and smiley faces. 

Let’s get started.

1.-  On a paper bag in the color and size of your choice, use black ink to repeatedly stamp Lucky the Rabbit. Tip: Temporarily mount the stamp on an acrylic block; clean and dry stamp before removing from block.

2.- Die cut a rectangle from White Soft Finish Cardstock using the largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle die set.

3.- Die cut 3 Easter egg silhouettes and 3 overlays from White Soft Finish Cardstock. Tip: Back the cardstock for the overlays with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet BEFORE die cutting.

4.- Using a mini Ink Blending Tool, ink the egg shapes and overlays with three different color inks. I used Barn Door, Peacock Feathers and Mustard Seed Distress Ink pads. Tip: Darker ink at the sides will make the eggs look rounded.

5.- Die cut 5 pieces of grass from Olive Twist Soft Finish Cardstock using the grass strip die from Easter Eggs die set. 

6.- Die cut 5 banners from Sunflower Soft Finish Cardstock. Fold banners and adhere them around a brown thread. 

7.- Die cut 6 banners from Soft Sky Soft Finish Cardstock. Fold banners and adhere them around a brown thread. 

8.- Using the Alphabet 2 Lower Case die set, die cut letters to spell ‘happy easterfrom White Soft Finish Cardstock (backed with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet before die cutting). 

9.- Refer to the project photo: arrange and adhere the rectangle, banners, eggs and grass as shown, adding foam tape beneath the banners or anywhere else you want extra dimension. Tip: Knot the ends of the banner strings and glue them in place – knots are easier to glue down than straight string.

10.- Fill your bag with Easter grass and tuck in your favorite goodies. Surprise!

Happy Crafting,

Jacky
