Seasons Greetings Card

December 5, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Seasons Greetings Card.

I love creating with Krista Schneider’s stamps as there are fabulous designs and are the perfect images to add to any project you’re working on. You’ll want to read below as I have a tutorial for you on how to recreate my card at home!

Step One. Choose a piece of Christmas patterned paper. Die cut a 4 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of the paper. Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut a 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Three. Die cut a 3 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to some of the circles from the Circle Background and stamp randomly onto the square. Reapply ink as needed to the stamp. Sprinkle Golden Rod Molten Dimensions Embossing Powder overtop of the circles. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the Words 5 – Winter Wishes die, die cut the Seasons Greetings sentiment out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of the sentiment.

Step Five. Next, you’ll need the Poinsettia Stamp Set. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the poinsettia stamp and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the berry sprig stamp and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Reapply ink two more times to the berry sprig stamp and stamp on the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the holly branch stamp and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Reapply ink to the holly branch stamp and stamp on the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the pine branch stamp and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Reapply ink two more times to the pine branch stamp and stamp on the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.Colour the images in using a waterbrush and Tombow Markers 847, 249, 177, 026 and 969. Die cut the images out using the coordinating Poinsettia Dies. Ink the edges of the images using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. Adhere the emboss square to the black soft finish cardstock square. Foam square the black soft finish square to the patterned paper square.

Step Seven. Adhere the holly branches, pine branches and berry sprigs as desired in behind the poinsettia. Foam square the poinsettia to the middle of the embossed square.

Step Eight. Adhere the Seasons Greetings sentiment to the right side of the poinsettia. To finish the card, cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4 3/4″ x 9 1/2″, score at 4 3/4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Seasons Greetings Card.

Flowers Galore: Creating Simple Invites!

September 4, 2019

It’s Karen here today. My parents have a milestone anniversary coming up. 6o years is the Diamond anniversary, so I turned a square on its side to create a diamond-shaped card!

We are throwing them a dinner party, and I wanted to create a few printed invitations for special guests. I used a few of the flower stamps to create the invitations. On the back of the card is where I put the details about the event printed from my computer.

Just For You: How To Create This Birthday Notecard

August 31, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my cute birthday notecard perfect to give to that special someone on their birthday. To create my card, I’ve used some stamps and coordinating dies from Krista Schneider as well as dies from Joset Designs and Els van de Burgt Studio and patterned paper from ModaScrap. I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

Step One. Take the light pink patterned paper out of the Thinking About…Grand Canyon Paper pack. Die cut the 4 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of the patterned paper. Distress the edges of the square. Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Choose a coordinating patterned paper from the Butterfly Dream Patterned Paper that will work with the light pink patterned paper. Die cut the 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of the patterned paper. Distress the edges of the square. Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Die cut the 3″ Stitched Circle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the circle down to 2 3/4″. Distress the edges of the circles. Ink the edges of the circle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. You’ll need three presents and the Just For You sentiment off of the Gift Wrapped Stamp Set. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to each of the presents as well as the Just for You sentiment and stamp each stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Use Tombow Markers: 815, 772, 676 and 847 as well as a watercolour brush to colour the presents. Use the Gift Wrapped dies to die cut the presents and Just For You sentiment out. Ink the edges of the presents and sentiment using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. Adhere the 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square to the 4 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square. Adhere the Stitched Circle to the right hand side of the 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square.

Step Six. Use foam squares to adhere the presents and sentiments to the circle as desired.

Step Seven. Cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5″ x 10″, score at 5″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Just For You Notecard.

Wild About…Paper Piecing

August 18, 2019

Hello! Samantha here sharing a card I created using one of my favourite Krista Schneider stamp sets called Cacti. One of the things I loved most about making this card was that I didn’t use any colouring medium. The background is cardstock and the cacti’s are all paper pieced with pattern paper! It’s a fun technique that I haven’t used in the longest time…

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Die cut the smallest Diagonal Stitched Fishtail die 12x using four different colours of cardstock.

Step 2: Position and adhere all the die cut fishtails on to your card front as shown below. Trim off any excess card.

Step 3: Stamp the three cacti on cardstock then die cut them out.

Step 4: Partially stamp each cacti again on pattern paper.

Step 5: Using scissors or a craft knife cut out each cacti part. Adhere these to the die cut Cacti as shown below.

Step 6: (Optional) Punch holes in each cacti and add an embroidery feature.

Step 7: Stamp the sentiment.

Step 8: Using foam tape, adhere the cacti’s and embellish the card with a twine bow and enamel dots. Adhere cardfront to an A6 cardbase.

I’ve now coloured and paper pieced this stamp set and I love the look of both –– I loved revisiting this technique again and I hope you get a chance to give it a go too!

Happy Crafting!

Fun “Cute Food” Clear Stamp Card Ideas

August 11, 2019

Hello everyone, it’s Sanna Lippert here again today for my August guest blog post. Today I’d like to share some fun “cute food” clear stamp card ideas with you. I love these stamps in combination with the fun sentiments, because you can create cards for practically every occasion!!

But first let me share the steps with you:

Step 1: I started by stamping the images very randomly with black waterproof stamp ink onto white Soft Finish Cardstock and then coloring them with Highly Pigmented Watercolour Pencils and blending the colours with a water tank brush.

Step 2: Next I fussy cut all the tiny images with my tiny Tim Holtz precision scissors. This takes a while, so if you would like to save time, I suggest you buy the matching “Cute Food” die cut die set for the stamps. That will save you lots of time! I didn’t have one, so I used my scissors. This is more time consuming, but also works.

Step 3: After fussy cutting I took a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and inked it with green and blue Distress Ink using the blending technique. Next I die cut the inked paper into two background pieces using the Circle and the Diamond Background dies.

Step 4: I then adhered the background pieces onto blue and purple Soft Finish Cardstock using a wide glue pen. You can also use the Clear Double Sided Adhesive instead of a glue pen, but you have to adhere it onto the paper before die cutting it! I also stamped the sentiments with embossing ink onto black cardstock several times and heat embossed them with white embossing powder to use them as sentiments on the finished cards. I fussy cut the embossed sentiments into banner, but you can also use the Stitched Fishtail Banner die for this purpose.

Step 5: For my third card I used the negative pieces of the Circle Background die to create a circle pattern on white card base. The donuts work really well together with the negative residue pieces and create a fun card.

For more shine and texture I decorated the donuts with some Crystal Glaze.

Step 6: Depending on which card I was working on, I either added some shading onto the background with Distress Inks, decorated the colored images with googly eyes or added glazed details onto them.

I had such a great time creating these Cute Food cards. After you are done with coloring and die cutting/fussy cutting them, the rest is fast and easy!! Here are my finished cards:

I hope you enjoyed my August tutorial and get inspired to play with the Cute Food stamp and die set yourself!! I´ll be sharing my next guest design team project in November – see you then!!!

Happy crafting,
Sanna
