Create The Things

September 22, 2019

Hi Friends! It’s EK and I am back once again to share how I colored up another one of Charlene’s new 6×8 inch stamp sets. Today I am playing around with the new Make a Wish stamp set. This is a really stunning stamp set filled with feathers and floral images. But hands down my favorite thing about this stamp set is the gal in it. What do I love about her? Well, I think she could be anybody. She could be any girl you want her to be. She can be brave, or curious, she could be sad or celebratory. She can be you or your best friend.

So I today I am creating a card that is wishful…for what, I haven’t fully decided yet, but I love how the feathers help create the feeling I as going for.

Step One: Trim a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock to 6×6 inches. Then Using a copic friendly ink, stamp the feathers from the Make a Wish stamp set all over the cardstock. I choose to use a collection of four colors to color up the feathers, so I planned out where each color would go. You can see where I marked each of the feathers with the lightest colors so that I did not accidentally color two feathers next to each other the same.

Step Two: Finish coloring up the feathers. I used a collection of earth tone copics to finish this card. The four collection of colors I used were as follows: E11, E13 and E15/ E40, E42, and E43/ E70, E71 and E74/ and finally E93, E95, and E97. I also used my E40 collection around the edges of the cardstock.

Trim a piece of Cafe au Lait Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 inches. Score and fold the cardstock to make a 6×6 card frame. Adhere the feather cardstock to the card frame using some 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step Three: On a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock (my favorite weight paper to fussy cut), stamp the image of the gal from the Make a Wish stamp set using copic friendly ink. Then color the image. I used E23, E35 and E57 for her skin tones, E23, E25, and E27 for her hair, and E07, E09, and E19 for her dress. Fussy cut out the image. Adhere the girl to the feather image.

Step Four: Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of Mustard Soft Finish Cardstock. Then die cut the sentiment using the Fitted Indented Square die set. Adhere the sentiment to the card.

I like that this card really could be used for almost any occasion. It is a nice one to have lying around for when you have an ‘opps, I need a card’ moments in life.

Let us know in the comments below what things you would created that you wished existed. Until then, happy crafting.

Hello…

August 25, 2019

Hello and Welcome! Samantha here, the card I am sharing today is all about the dies! NO stamping, NO colouring –– simple, fun, geometric card made with the arrows from Planner Essentials #5.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Adhere clear double sided adhesive to the back of pattern paper and cardstock. Next, die cut the arrows several times.

TIP: Be as adventurous and bold with your colour choices –– you could even try silk microfine glitter or shimmer sheetz as alternatives to pattern paper.

Step 2: Die Cut the ‘hello’ die from Words 2 – Thing of You set using the same pattern paper and card stock.

Step 3: Position the arrows before removing the release sheet to adhere the arrows onto your card front (card front measurement: 10.5cm x 15.5cm). Leave appropriately sized spaces for the hello die cuts.

Step 4: (Options) Add machine stitched details. Corner punch the top right corner.

TIP: Instead of adding machine stitching to your card front – use foam tape to adhere the arrows adding a fun dimensional detail.

Step 5: Adhere the hello die cuts. Adhere card front to an A6 card base.

Step 6: Embellish card front with a twine bow and sequins.

I hope you are inspired by my card today –– I love that I can reuse these planner dies in my card making.

Happy Crafting!

Samantha.

A Butterfly Birthday

August 24, 2019

Hey Friends! It’s EK and I am popping in today to share a birthday card I created using the Butterflies and Stars spray from the Suzanne Cannon’s A Way with Words Collection. I just love how this simple die can create such bold magical beauty.

Here’s how I made it:

Step One: Blend a trio of Distress Oxides onto some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock trimmed to 4.25×5.5 inches. I used Cracked Pistachio, Scattered Straw, and Worn Lipstick.

Step Two: Die cut out the butterflies from the blended cardstock using the Butterflies and Stars Spray die. Save the die cut butterflies for later.

Step Three: Die cut the blended background again using the Dashing Rectangles die set.

Step Four: Trim a piece of Bonnie Blue Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches. Using 10mm Clear Double Side Adhesive adhere the bonnie blue card stock to an A2 card frame.

Step Five: Adhere the blended cardstock to the bonnie blue cardstock using a combination of 10mm and 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step Six: Using Suzanne’s Happy Birthday Collection stamp set add a Birthday sentiment. I also used a stamp from the Wedding Sentiments stamp set to add a a little visual interest.

Step Seven: Using some Kids Choice Glue, adhere back on the die cut butterflies to the finished card.

While this is a fairly simple card to craft, I think it has a huge visual impact with its trio of colors and spray of butterflies. Thank you for peeking in today to this butterfly birthday card. Let me know what trio of colors you would have used with your spray of butterfly stamp set in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.
