It’s Sara here today and I would like to show you how I use the Krista circle background and birds and branches background stamps in my ECD planner!
This page is as simple as you can see: first step is to create you background with Distress Ink and water.
Then you move on to the flowers, stamping all your elements on a piece of watercolor paper with dark brown ink.
Watercolor all the images and fussy cut them all with the fine point scissors, place all your pieces on the page and trace a line with a pencil where you shold make your stitched lines to create the stems.
Sew with a sewing machine or embroidery and add the flowers and the leaves with glue or mounting tape to create that dimention you see in the pictures.
Hello everybody! It’s Sara here today and I have a new project for you. Today I’m using the wonderful new stamps from the Planner Essentials line, as well as dies and stamps from ModaScrap, to add a splash of color to your projects!
When I saw the color chart stamp set, I immediately thought that I had to give it a try and make my own Distress color chart.
Here are the steps to make it:
Die cut out of some White soft finish cardstock the same number of your ink pads ( I choose Distress Oxide and have 21 of them). I die cut 21 squares of white cardstock with Dashing Squares die from ModaScrap.
It would be helpful to have a stamping platform for this project, but if you don’t have one, don’t worry! Place the first square in the platform and stamp the sentiment with an ink of your color chart (optional: if you want you can emboss it with clear embossing powder).
Now to the inside: place every square and stamp with Versafine the base of your chart. With the stamping platform it would be easier to stamp multiple times, but you can do the same with acrylic block. Write on the lines the name of your inks and the brand.
Choose a stamp (mine is part of a floral wreath from Wedding stamp set from ModaScrap) and stamp it to the correct square.
Punch a hole and put them together with a metal ring, embellish it with ribbons and bells.
It’s Sara here today, and I have a new project for you –– it’s a bit different from my standards because I find so difficult to make a CAS card. So here is the challenging part: I’ve decided to use only dies and patterned paper to make these two cards.
Here are the steps:
Prepare two card bases with White Soft Finish cardstock, two panels 1/2” smaller than the bases and two rectangular patterned panels from “Relax in the garden” ModaScrap paper pad; cut with Dashing Rectangles to make the up and lower side a little bit decorated.
Die cut with Leafy Branch 3 and Pair of Leaves 2 a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Cut out two small pieces for the sentiment and stamp the “just for you” sentiment from the Gift Wrapped stamp set. Add the banner as shown in the photos and sew the left side with sewing machine to add a little of interest there.
Hello everyone! It’s Sara here today, and I have a new project for you. I have create two wintery projects today as the weather here is totally freezing. I love the mountains and go skiing but I don’t like the freezing temperature so much.
It’s Sara here today and I have a new Christmas project for you. Super simple but super fun!
I love playing with die cuts and this is one of those cases where I try to do my best to use my stash in a creative way.
Sometimes you have to think of your dies in a different way. Rather than looking at your die and seeing the actual image (santa’s face or moose) look at the shape and size of the die cut.
In my mind these two fun characters reminded me about a circle and for this reason I decided to use them on my card to represent a letter in a word … in this case substituting the image for the letter “O” in the word JOY & NOEL.
