Hi there,

It’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this adorable duck family card!

Step 1: Stamping and Die Cutting the Images

  • Stamp the mother duck, three ducklings, the little flower and the umbrella from the April Showers stamp set with Versafine Clair Nocturne
  • Cut them out with the coordinating dies

Step 2: Color the Images

  • Color the images with Prismacolor Colored Pencils

Step 3: Create the Background Panel

  • Cut two Stitched Circles from watercolor paper
  • Using one of the Stitched Circles, die cut a grass border using a die from the Adventure Edges set
  • Add color with Distress Oxide Inks (Faded Jeans, Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire, Mowed Lawn, Forest Moss)
  • Stamp the little raindrops from the April Showers stamp set with Versamark and heat-emboss them with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder

Step 4: Assemble the Focal Panel

  • Use clear double-sided adhesive and double-sided foam tape to assemble the focal panel
  • Add some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter to the umbrella for some extra sparkle

Step 5: Finishing Touches

  • Stamp the little circles from the April Showers stamp set as a continuous pattern onto a yellow card-base with Altenew Crisp Ink Honey Drizzle
  • Stamp the sentiment from the same set with Versamark onto some light kraft cardstock and heat-emboss it with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder

Assemble, and you’re done!

How To Use Sentiments To Create A Background

June 6, 2019

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. I have a sweet and simple card to share with you using sentiments to create a background. I used the Garden Party Clear Stamps from Krista Schneider. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Trim Soft Finish Café au Lait to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. Stamp Garden Party sentiments (Bloom, Blossom, Grow) using a soft brown Ink. You could mix it up but I decided on the sentiments repeating on each row. Diecut Garden Notes Frame It Stitched Squares. Save the inner square. Diecut Dashing Rectangles and adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Stamp Garden Party image onto White Soft Finish Cardstock using Gina K Amalgam Ink. This is an alcohol friendly ink. Color in the image using alcohol markers. I used Tri-Blend Markers by Spectrum Noir. Diecut the image with the matching die.

Step 4 – Diecut Dotted Scallop Squares using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere the center square from Step 2 on top of the Dotted Scallop Square diecut and then the diecut image using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Optional – Wrap some twine around the bottom 3 times and tie a bow. Adhere to card using foam tape.

This card can be used for any occasion. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

11 Gifts For Mom On Mother’s Day!

May 12, 2019

A very Happy Mother’s Day to all of the wonderful mother’s out there!

Today gives us such a wonderful opportunity to honor the women in our lives who raised us, praised us and made us who we are. They certainly have been a huge and important part of our lives!

Along with our Design Team, we put together 11 projects for mom on Mother’s Day –– enjoy!

Kathy Sabarese

To honor my mother, this background with the windmill pays tribute to her PA ‘Dutch’ heritage, and she loved tulips! I’ve put the tulips in Susan’s Garden Watering Can, which has a Mandala geometric pattern of ‘dots’ which are done by Tibetan Buddhists called ‘Dkyil-khor.’ This literally means ‘ that which encircles a centre.’ My dear friend, fellow stamper and tole painter, Barb Pelak, was kind enough to do a pattern on the Watering Can for me! I colored my tulips to match her colors in the pattern.
Happy Mother’s Day mom.  Miss you lots!

Mother’s Day Fashion

May 9, 2019

Hey everyone! It is EK here and with Mother’s Day just around the corner (it is May 12th, just in case you missed the memo)! I thought I would whip up a super simple mother’s day card for all the fashionable mothers out there.

My mother is the woman who has most influenced my fashion choices through life and I thought this card would be a super fun way to stay thank you to her this for teaching me how to be a lady.

To create this fun mother’s day card, I pulled out Krista Schneider’s Fashions 2 stamp set and a collection of Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step One: Trim a piece of 12×12 White Soft Finish Cardstock to 6×6 inches. In copic friendly black ink, stamp out the images from the Fashions 2 stamp set.

Step Two: Color in the images with a collection of alcohol markers. I used copics. For the green I used YG61, YG63, and YG67.

Step Three: For the red areas I used R32, R35, R37, and R39.

Step Four: The white/beige sections were colored with E40, E41, and E43.

Step Five: The few blue areas were colored with B91, B93, and B95.

Step Six: Give each image a glow tracing the outside of each colored area using the white/beige markers. I used E40, E41, and E43.

Step Seven: Die cut the colored images with the largest Stitched Squares die.

Step Eight: Trim a piece of Dusty Lavender Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 and score it and fold the cardstock to create a 6×6 inch card frame.

Step Nine: Die cut a piece of Celadon Green Soft Finish Cardstock with the largest Stitched Squares die set.

Step Ten: Adhere the green die cut crooked to the card frame with some 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Adhere the stamped and colored cardstock over the green crooked as well.

Step Eleven: Place a sheet of Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto the back of Dusky Lavender Soft Finish Cardstock. From the Words 3 Holidays, die cut the sentiment so that the adhesive is onto the back of the die cut words.

Step Twelve: Stick the words onto the finished card.

For all you mothers out there, Happy Mother’s Day. For all you daughters out there, remember to thank you moms for the lessons they taught you. And to my mother, thank you for teaching me to always dress like a lady.

Happy Magnets

April 25, 2019

Hello everyone!

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!

Krista Schneider Silk Microfine Glitter Soft Finish Cardstock Stamping

Bugs & Butterflies

April 15, 2019

Hello! Welcome! Samantha here sharing a simple background technique using the hills die from Elizabeth Craft Designs Adventure Edges. Landscape dies are one of my favourite die designs –– there’s quite a few ways to use them and if you think outside the box you can create fun backgrounds like the one I’ve created in my card today!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Colour in three butterflies using your preferred colouring medium.

Step 2: Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive (measurement 3cm x 16cm) to the front of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 3: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Diva Silk Microfine Glitter. Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 4: Die cut the Adventure Edges die.

Step 5: Die cut again to create a thin wavy strip.

Step 6: Using a selected choice of card stock colours, die cut the Adventure Edges die again. Adhering each one on top of another (like a puzzle piece) to create your backgound.

Step 7: Trim off the excess card and stamp the sentiment.

Step 8: (Optional) Add machine Stitched details.

Step 9: Adhere the three coloured in butterflies, embellish card with sequins, a twine bow and adhere to an A6 side folding card base.

Here are two more background examples using this same technique. I personally love how the lady bug card turned out…


Happy Crafting!

Creating Patchwork With Hexagons

March 27, 2019

Samantha here…and for today’s card/s I’m combining Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Stitched Hexagons with the stamp set Patchwork. There are many creative moments where I’ve been really stuck on colour combinations…so I just pull out a (random) piece of pattern paper from a paper pad (in this case Fly and Scrap by Modascrap), match it up with cardstock and Copic markers and start creating!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Using a combination of pattern paper and cardstock die cut 12 small stitched hexagons.

Step 2: Piece these together, forming two rows on the bottom of your card front. (Card front measurements: 15cm x 10.5cm). Trim off the sides.

Step 3: Next, stamp the Patchwork flower and other smaller Patchwork images on Copic friendly cardstock, die-cut them out, and colour them in with Copic markers (or your preferred colouring medium).

Copic Marker Colours: V01/V04/V06/RV02/RV04/RV06/YG00/YG01/YG03

Step 4: Stamp the sentiment with black ink using Elizabeth Craft Designs Banner Sentiments stamp and coordinating die.

Step 4: Assemble card as shown, adhering the sentiment to the (hexagon) card front with foam tape and tucking the Patchwork flowers under the banner.

Step 6: Embellish with sequins and a twine bow before adhering the card front to an A6 card base.

Below are two more fun examples of ways to create a more detailed hexagon background. At first I thought the colour scheme pick out in the first card wouldn’t work…but I’m really happy I persisted. I think the pastel colour combination really suits these Patchwork bees and that it is a great alternative to ‘normal’ bee colours!

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my card tutorial today and if you are ever stuck on a colour scheme just try my tip…you never know how interesting the card will turn out in the end!

Happy Crafting!

Using Stamps On Your Planner!

March 18, 2019

Hi everyone!

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.

Hope you like it!

Sara
