How To Create These Clean And Simple Hexagon Cards

April 21, 2019

Hello everyone, it’s Sanna Lippert here today again, sharing my April guest design team project with you. I love basic dies for their versatility, and wanted to show how to create these fun and colorful –– but clean and simple –– cards with just a few easy-to-follow steps.

Here is what I did:
Step 1: Die cut 12 hexagon pieces –– three of each of the 4 smallest sizes from the Fitted Hexagons die set, from white Soft Finish Cardstock with your die cutting machine.
Step 2: Fold a card base from white Soft Finish Cardstock approximately 14,5 x 10,5 cm in size and arrange the die cut hexagon pieces onto the card base.
Step 3: Now place the die cut hexagons onto a craft mat in the exact same order and take three tones of Distress Ink to color them with an ink blending tool. Blend the colors together to create a gradient color pattern.
Step 4: Adhere the inked hexagons in place with Kids Choice glue or Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Cut off any residues with scissors.

Step 5: Add water splatters onto the inked areas and let sit a bit, then dab with a piece of cloth.
Step 6: Die cut a Fishtail Banner from white Soft Finish Cardstock and stamp a sentiment from General Sentiments clear stamp set with black stamp ink onto the banner.
Step 7: Adhere the smallest hexagons and the banner with 3D foam pads onto the card base and add a few silver sequins for decoration. The tweezers are great for this purpose!

I’ve also recorded a video for you to watch, to give you a better idea of each particular step. Hope you like it!

Also while I was at it, I created an additional card, with yellow, orange and pink Distress Ink tones and the Stitched Hexagons die set. What a big difference it makes by only changing a color scheme!

That’s all from me today! I hope I could inspire you a bit with my April post. I’ll be back in June with another guest post. See you then!

Wishing you a great, crafty day!!

Creating Pages For Your Monthly Calendar And Important Dates

March 19, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my March Calendar and Important Dates Tag.

Have you seen the new release from Esther Glass for the Planner Essentials Line? Well, both pages feature some of the new products that are now available from the new release! On top of using the new Planner Essentials release from Esther Glass, I’ve used dies from Els van de Burgt Studio and Joset Designs as well as patterned paper from ModaScrap. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

To start, I will share with you how to recreate my March Calendar Page.

Step 1. Die cut the Planner Page from the Planner Essentials 3 set out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Sprinkle Jade Magenta Nuance Powder over 1/4 of the way from the top of the page. Spritz with water. Once the page has dried, apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Monthly stamp from the Bullet Journaling 3 stamp set and stamp onto the tab of the page. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the ‘XXX’ stamp and stamp in the bottom left and top right corner of the page. Ink the edges of the page using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 2. From the Planner Essentials 1 die, die cut the reinforcement circles out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 3. From the Blackboard Alphabet Die, die cut the word March out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 4. Adhere the reinforcement circles overtop of the circles on the page. Adhere the March word to where the magenta nuance is. Place the Sun. to Sat. stamps, from the Schedule stamp set, onto a stamp block. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the days of the week and stamp underneath the March word.

Step 5. To finish the page, add the corresponding numbers underneath the days on the calendar as well as add black markings around the March word.

With your March Calendar Page done, I will share with you how to recreate my Important Dates Tag.

Step 1. Start by die cutting the tag from the Planner Essentials 7 die out of kraft cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the letter stamp, from the Patterns 2 stamp set, stamp off onto a piece of scrap paper and then stamp onto to your tag randomly. Repeat the previous step six more times to your tag. Distress the edges of the tag. Ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 2. From the Planner Essentials 1 die, die cut the reinforcement circles out of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of the reinforcements circles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 3. From the Planner Patterns, die cut the square pattern twice out of black cardstock. Cut the two pieces up into four pieces.

Step 4. From the Stitched Fishtail Banners, die cut the 3/8″ banner out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Place the notched side of the die, 2 7/8″ from the side of the banner that is straight and run the die through your die-cutting machine. Die cut the 3/4″ banner out of a scrap piece of patterned paper from the Butterfly Dream Paper Pack. Place the notched side of the die, 3 1/2″ from the side of the banner that is straight and run the die through your die-cutting machine. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Important stamp, from the Bullet Journaling 2 stamp set and stamp onto the white banner. Ink the edges of the important and patterned paper banner using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 5. From the Retro Labels stamp set, you’ll need nine of the labels. Next, you’ll need a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink to three of the labels and stamp onto the White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink to three of the labels and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Ink to four of the labels and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Fussy cut the labels. Write on each label as desired. Ink the edges of all the labels using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 6. Adhere the reinforcement circles overtop of the circles on the tag page.

Step 7. Adhere the square patterned pieces as desired on the tag.

Step 8. Adhere the Important banner to the patterned paper banner. Foam square the patterned paper banner to the top portion of the tag.

Step 9. To finish the tag, adhere the labels as desired.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my March Calendar Page and Important Dates Tag.

How To Make These Cute Birthday Tag Critters

March 12, 2019

Hey Friends. It’s EK Gorman here today sharing some tags I created using the some of the new critter dies sets.

One of my favorite things about the new critter dies from Joset is that they are so incredibly versatile. What was originally designed for some safari fun, can easily be turned into a bit of everyday birthday day labels. Today, I am taking a few of the new critter dies and turning them into the perfect tags to hang from birthday presents for both the old and young.

Step One: Die cut the piece from the Zebra die set and some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two: Color the zebra strip die cuts with some alcohol markers. I used N8 copics.

Step Three: Color the hair, tail and hooves with alcohol markers. I used N6, N8, and 100.

Step Four: Color the body, head, legs and ears with alcohol markers. I used N0, N2, and N4.

Step Five: Color the nose and ears with alcohol markers. I used R00, R20, and R22.

Step Six: Assemble the body of the Zebra using Kids Choice Glue.

Step Seven: Using Kids Choice glue, add the zebra stripes to the body. Tweezers help in the placing of these small parts. I used the ones from the 4pc all Metal tool set.

Step Eight: Repeat Steps one through seven, but using the Monkey die set and the Little Chick die set. The Monkey parts were colored with E21, E23, E25, E27 and E29. The Little Chick was colored with Y00, Y02, Y06 and Y08 plus YR15 and YR16.

Step Nine: Die cut balloons, party hats and fun party accessories from the Party Accessories die set. Color them with alcohol markers. I used RV00, RV02, RV04 and RV06 for the pink accessories, R05, R24, R29 and R89 for the red accessories, Y21, Y26 and Y28 for the gold crown, B12, B16 and B18 for the blue balloon, and N4, N6, and N8 for the black mustache. Adhere the accessories to the critters with Kids Choice Glue.

Step Ten: Trim a piece of Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock, True Blue Soft Finish Cardstock and Spring Green Soft Finish Cardstock to 6×6 inches. Then die cut the top of the tag from the Tags & More Lattice die set. Trim off any excess paper.

Step Eleven: Add the lattice die cut effect to both the top and the bottom of the tags using the Tags & More Lattice dies.

Step Twelve: Add tag reinforcements from the tag die set to the top of the tags. I mixed and matched paper colors to add a bit of whimsy to the card.


Step Thirteen: Adhere the critters and party accessories to the tags. Stamp a sentiment onto each tag using the Safari Sayings sentiment stamp set. Finally, add some colorful ribbon to the top of each tag. I also added some glossy accents to the top of all they party accessories so that the accessories were shinny.

Thank you for peeking in today to my project today. I hope you think they are as much fun as I do. Make sure to share how you are playing with the collection of new critter dies over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Family Page.

Until then, happy crafting!
