Quick Holiday Crafts

November 5, 2019

Hey everyone! It’s EK and I have a quick Christmas craft to share with you to help launch your holiday season. The holidays might be ‘the happiest time of the year’, but lets be real, they can also be the most stressful. So any time I can find something that is a true quick craft that is also super cute, I take full advantage of it.

Step One: Trim three pieces of paper from ModaScrap’s It’s Christmas Time paper pack to 6×12 inches. Die cut each piece of paper with the ModaScrap Triangle Box.

Step Two: Using the pre-scored lines the die left, gently fold the triangle box.

Step Three: Using some 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, add tape to the edges of the box.

Step Four: Assemble the box.

Step Five: Using a piece of string, tape it inside the box so you can tie close the box.

These boxes are super simple to assemble, but a perfect way to give the holiday gift of cash, and plus they are the perfect vessel for little chocolate kisses.

Step Six: With the left over printed paper, die cut a rectangle and circle from the papers using the Dashing Rectangles and Dashing Circles die sets.

Step Seven: Trim up some left over Rust Soft Finish Cardstock and adhere is to the back of the circles to create little ornaments.

Step Eight: Adhere some string to the back of the ornament.

Step Nine: Adhere the die cut rectangle and circles to an A2 card frame made from some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Ten: Die cut a sentiment from some Forest Green Soft Finish Cardstock that has a sheet of Clear Double Sided Adhesive attached to the back from the Words 5- Winter Wishes die set. Attach the sentiment to the card frame.

Seriously, this box and card set could not be easier to create. They are super cute, but will save you time during your holiday season.

Let Your Heart Be Light Wall Hanging

November 2, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, I’m thrilled to be sharing with you my Let your Heart be Light Wall Hanging, which features the brand new collection of stamps and dies from Suzanne Cannon! To compliment the products from Suzanne Cannon, I’ve also used dies from Els van de Burgt Studio.

See my step-by-step below –– I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

Step One. Die cut all the pieces from the Flourish Holly die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Candied Apple Distress Ink over the entire surface of the berries. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Peeled Paint Distress Ink over the entire surface of the flourished holly and single see through holly. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Mowed Lawn Distress Ink over the entire surface of the two holly leaves.

Step Two. From the Love, Joy & Peace Christmas Ornament, die cut the ornament out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the ornament and sprinkle Copper Scroll Modern Gilding Powder over the entire surface. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Three. Die cut the snowflake three times from the Flourished Christmas Minis 2 out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Four. Die cut the Flourished Frame out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Five. Choose two patterned papers that coordinate. From one of the patterned papers, die cut a 4″ Stitched Rectangle out of the paper. From the other patterned paper, die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle out of the paper. Distress the edges of both pieces. Ink the edges of both pieces using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. Apply Candied Apple Distress Ink to the Let your Heart sentiment from the Let Your Heart be Light stamp set and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the sentiment out using the 2″ Stitched Circle.

Step Seven. To support the wall hanging, cut a piece that measures 4″ x 5 1/4″ out of thicker cardstock or a bingo card. Ink the edges of the piece using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. Adhere the 4″ stitched rectangle to the 4″ base. Adhere the flourished frame to the 4″ stitched rectangle. Adhere the 3 1/2″ stitched rectangle to the 4″ stitched rectangle.

Step Nine. Adhere the three snowflake randomly on the 3 1/2″ stitched rectangle.

Step Ten. Adhere the ornament to the stitched circle. Foam square the stitched circle to the middle of the 3 1/2″ stitched rectangle.

Step Twelve. Adhere the flourished holly together. Adhere the assembled flourished holly to the top of the ornament.

Step Thirteen. To finish the wall hanging, add a piece of twine to the back of the wall hanging.

Thank you for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Let Your Heart be Light Wall Hanging.

Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the script stamp from the Background Stamps 2 and stamp randomly seven times on the tag. Reapply ink to the stamp as needed. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the fraction stamp from the Background Stamps 1 and stamp randomly seven times on the tag. Reapply ink to the stamp as needed. Ink the edges of the tag using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut two wreaths from the Planner Pocket – 2 out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Three. From the Planner Essentials – 13 die, die cut the deer out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Vintage Photo Distress Ink over the entire surface of the deer.

Step Four. Choose a label from the Planner Labels die and then die cut it out of kraft cardstock. Apply Fired Brick Distress Ink to the Merry Christmas stamp from the Joyful Wishes stamp set and stamp onto the label. Ink the edges of the label using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. Adhere one of the wreaths to the middle of the tag. Adhere the other wreath over top of the previous adhered wreath, making sure the circles don’t line up.

Step Six. Foam square the deer to the middle of the wreath.

Step Seven. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the Merry Christmas label to the right of the deer.

Clean And Simple Die Cut Cards With DIY Foam Stamps

October 7, 2019

Hello everyone, it’s Sanna Lippert here today with another guest design team project share. This post started off with a simple question: have you ever used the die to cut out the stamped image you just made?

I found the question very interesting, so I gave it a try and these cards are a result of that experiment.

Here is what I did:
1. Take your die cut die DIY foam stamps and apply three colours of Distress Ink and for the second set use Distress Oxide inks onto the foam stamp.
2. Spray water mist onto the inked stamp to create a “faux watercolour look”.
3. Now die cut the stamped images using the same die cut dies you used originally to create the DIY stamps. This is a little bit tricky, as you need to figure out where to place the die cut die THRU the paper. Preferably, place the image againts a window/light box, for easier placement.
4. You can either adhere the images onto the card base with a glue pen OR attach Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheets onto the stamped paper BEFORE die cutting. This makes adhering much easier.
5. Adhere onto card bases and then stamp sentiments on black cardstock with embossing ink and using white embossing powder heat set with a heat gun.
6. Attach to the card base with 3D foam pad, add faux stitching around the edges of the card with a gel pen. If you want to, apply black ink splatters for decoration.

Here is a start-to-finish video for you to watch showing the complete process:

There are, of course, easier ways to create these images:
a) die cut the image from white cardstock and then ink the die cut image with stamp inks; OR
b) ink a piece of white cardstock and then die cut it.

This technique I share today, shows another way of incorporating your with die cut dies created DIY stamps into cardmaking. You need a little bit of patience, but in the end you get a really nice artsy looking images!

Wishing you happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna

Love You To The Moon & Back Tag

October 5, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, I’m excited to be sharing with you my Love you to the Moon & Back Tag which features a variety of dies and stamps from Suzanne Cannon! To compliment the products from Suzanne Cannon, I’ve also used dies from the Planner Essentials and Els van de Burgt Studio.

See my step-by-step below –– I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

Step One. Die cut the large tag from the Planner Essentials – 2 die out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two. Place the Butterflies & Stars stencil on the tag and using a blending tool with foam, blend Fossilized Amber Distress Ink through the stencil. Move the stencil as desired around the tag and blend ink through it.

Step Three. Die cut the Ornament from the Love, Joy & Peace Ornament out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the top portion of the ornament off.

Step Four. Die cut a 2 1/4″ Stitched Circle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply a sticky note a 1/8″ in on the left hand side of the stitched circle. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Moon & Back sentiment from the Soar Collection stamp set and stamp in the middle of the circle. Make sure that the majority of the moon gets stamped onto the sticky note.

Step Five. Die cut the Star spray from the Butterflies & Stars Sprays out of a piece of Sunflower Soft Finish Cardstock. You’ll need seven stars from the spray.

Step Six. Adhere the ornament to the stitched circle. Foam square the stitched circle to the right hand side of the tag.

Step Seven. Adhere the three of the stars around the Moon & Back sentiment. Adhere the other four stars as desired on the tag.

Step Eight. To finish the tag, tie a piece of twine to the top of the tag.

Thank you for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Love you to the Moon & Back Tag.

Halloween Scarecrow

October 1, 2019

Hello Friends! It’s EK and I am popping in to let you know it is the first day of October, so that means it is officially time to break out all the fun Halloween stuff. I am so excited that Joset released earlier this year a fun-filled line of Halloween dies. They are going to be ghoul-tastic this year.

Step One: Die cut all the pieces from the Scarecrow die set using scrapes of printed paper. I used scrapes from the It’s Christmas Time, White Christmas, Relax in the Garden, Thinking About-Grand Canyon and Sweet Vintage Rose paper packs.

Step Two: Using Kids Choice Glue, assemble the scarecrow.

Step Three: Using alcohol markers, add some shadowing. I used N0, N2, and N4 copics.

Step Four: Trim a piece of Dusky Sky Soft Finish Cardstock to 5.5×5.5 inches. Using the Earth & Sky stencil and some Distress Oxides, add clouds and a moon to the background. I used Seedless Preserves, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire. Adhere the inked cardstock to a piece of 12×6 inch trimmed piece of Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock, that is scored and folded into a 6×6 inch card frame.

Step Five: Die cut the Tree die set from some Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere the tree and grass to the card frame.

Step Six: Adhere the Scarecrow and mice to the card frame.

Thank you for peeking in today. Let us know what Halloween project you are most excited to create this year in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.

A Way With Words Birthday Gift Box

September 28, 2019

Hi Friends! It is EK, and I am so excited to share this small gift box I created. I have a teenager now, and I have been looking for a fun way to give his friend’s birthday cash in a more creative way than just a simple card. I thought the A Way With Words Gable Box by Suzanne Cannon was the perfect way to give a little birthday cash.

Step One: Die cut some Dove Gray Soft Finish Cardstock with the Gable Box die.

Step Two: Pre-fold all the edges of the gable box. This make a big difference later when you are assembling the box.

Step Three: Using some copic friendly black ink, stamp out the long candle image twice and the sentiment from the A Way With Words Happy Birthday Collection stamp set.

Step Four: Using alcohol makers, color an ombre effect across the whole box. I used YR20, YR21, YR23, YR24, YR27, E19, E18 (lightest to darkest) copic markers.

Step Five: Color in the candles with an alcohol maker. I used E07 for the base and Y02 for the flame.

Step Six: Using a white gel pen, add some details to the stamped images. Using some Kids Choice Glue, paint a little glue onto the flames and add some Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.

Step Seven: Using some 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, add some adhesive to both the tab and the bottom of the box. Assemble the box.

I just love how this little box came out. I think it is perfect for a fall birthday.

Thanks for peeking in today. Let us know your favorite way to gift cash outside of a traditional birthday card in the comments below.
