Hello everyone! It’s Sanna Lippert here today again, sharing my June Guest Design Team project(s) with you.
I don’t do planners that much, but I still really like the Planner Essentials clear stamp sets that Esther Glas designed. So when I first saw them, I knew I wanted to use them for another purpose: cardmaking! They, by the way, would also work great on art journals, ATCs and tags even.
Here is what I did:
Step 1: Take a sheet of white Soft Finish Cardstock and the Patterns 1 Planner Essentials stamp set and stamp a grid with an embossing ink onto the paper. Then pour white embossing powder over the stamped area, dabb any residue off and heat set with a heat tool.
Step 2: Repeat the previous step and now use one of the flower images in the same stamp set.
Step 3: Color the grid piece with a green Distress Ink and an ink blending tool and then color the flowers using a water tank brush and pink, orange and yellow Distress Ink tones. After you are done coloring the flowers, apply blue Distress Ink onto the working surface and color the background around the flowers blue.
Step 4: Cut the pieces into a right size with a paper trimmer.
Step 5: Fussy cut the flower piece along the right side edge with scissors.
Step 6: Adhere both pieces onto a white appr. 6×6 inch sized white card base with Kids Choice glue.
Step 7: Add a ribbon to the card and ink a strip of white cardstock with a green Distress Ink, then stamp a sentiment with black ink onto the strip using the Remember Planner Essentials stamp set.
Step 8: Fussy cut the banner OR use the Stiched Fishtail Banner die to die cut it and adhere the banner in place. Recorate with roses and liquid drops.
For my second card I used the same stamp sets with these steps:
Step 1: Use the residue ink from the blue background card on your working surface and dabb a piece of white cardstock into it until you have grabbed all color from the surface.
Step 2: Take the Patterns 1 Planner Essentials stamp set – the number stamp – and start stamping the image repeatedly onto the background with the same Distress Ink tone.
Step 3: Use an ink blending tool and apply the same Distress Ink tone onto a strip of white cardstock. Now use the Remember stamp set to stamp a sentiment with black stamp ink onto the strip.
Step 4: Adhere the pieces together and cut any residue parts off with scissors. Then adhere this piece onto a appr. 6×6 inch sized white card base.
Step 5: Take the border stamp from the same stamp set and using black stamp ink stamp the image repeatedly on both sides of the free white area on the card.
Step 6: Decorate with puffy stickers or buttons and add a few liquid drops for additional decor.
Of course I also recorded a video for you to watch, so you get a better idea on how I did each and every step!
I hope you like my card ideas and get inspired to try something similar out yourself!! See you all in August with another tutorial post.
