Today is a bittersweet day: this will be my last post for ECD blog and I’m a little bit sad about that. I’m happy because it means moving forward to new adventures, but also sad because I love this big family and all the people that you can not see but they work behind the scenes.
For today’s post I chose one of the first stamp that I’ve ever receive, but still one of my favourite: the circles background.
All you have to do is: stamp it with clear sticky ink and cover with clear embossing powder. Watercolor all the panel with a wet on wet tecnique and the colors you prefer. Fussy cut the circles and arrange them to make an abstract flower bouquet.
Die cut the Leafy Branch 4 from ModaScrap and watercolor it, add some black ink splatters to the background, arrange all the pieces and glue them creating layers.
If you like, add some sequins.
I would like to thank you all for being so kind and creative, hope you like this last post.
Hi there! It’s Sara here today, and I have a new project for you featuring ModaScrap products.
I love watercolors and it’s always a good occasion to try something new: today I die cut all the pieces from a piece of watercolor paper and then coloured everything with watercolors.
Here are the steps:
Prepare a base for your card and add some splatters with a black ink.
For the belt you need to partial die cut a piece of kraft cardstock, put your cardstock in the big shot leaving outside the finish part of the die and the rest of the cardstock, repeat the same process on the other side.
Die cut all the leaves and the poppies, colour them.
Glue all the pieces down to the belt and add a bow made with rope.
It’s Sara here today, and I have a new fun project for you:magnets! These magnets are really simple to make and they can be used in many different ways.
All you have to do is:
Take your stamps (Cacti, Laundry Party, Patchwork and Puppies stamp sets), stamp all the subjects with Ditress Ink Antique Linen on cardstock and color them all with no line technique and your favourite watercolors.
Let them dry and die cut all the pieces with the matching dies. To thicken the single magnet, just die cut the same design multiple times from your cardstock. To help you stick the pieces together, use Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheets.
To finish the magnets simply add a little circle magnet to the back and you’re done!
Hope you like it! Let me know if you try it in the comments below!
It’s Sara here today. I have a new project for you to celebrate Spring. These tags are made from a recycled paper and die cut with Planner Essential 2 –– they are perfect for all of your Spring giving!
These are the steps to make them:
Distress the tags a little bit (as you like it –– this is not necessary)
Stamp the flowers from Color My Flowers stamp set with Antique Linen Distress Ink and watercolor them (I’ve used a no-line technique but you can do as you prefer)
Once you have all colored, die cut them all and add a drop of Nuvo Crystal Drop in the center
Stamp your sentiment from the Spring Sentiments stamp set
Die cut the leaves from a piece of vellum using the Leafy Branch 3 die
Add all your pieces with glue and mounting tape to create dimension and interest
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.
