Christmas In July

July 4, 2019

Hello! Samantha here, bringing you some Christmas card inspiration in July! Nothing beats being prepared six months before Christmas –– I personally try to make as many holiday themed cards as I can to avoid the crazy rush that leads up to Christmas day.

Card instructions:

Step 1: Stamp the Circle Background stamp on cardstock and pattern paper, fussy cut around the circles.

Step 2: Position and adhere the circles on to your card front (measuring: 10.5cm x 15.5cm) as shown below.

Step 3: (Optional) Add machine stitched detail to the circle Christmas tree.

Step 4: Stamp the Classic Christmas Sentiment on to the Banner die. Adhere this to your card front.

Step 5: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to white card stock and die cut the stars from the Elegant Christmas Tree die set.

Step 6: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Moonbeam). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 7: Embellish card with the glitter stars and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 card base.

Happy Crafting!

Using A Background Stamp As A Focal Piece

June 27, 2019

Hi everyone!

Today is a bittersweet day: this will be my last post for ECD blog and I’m a little bit sad about that. I’m happy because it means moving forward to new adventures, but also sad because I love this big family and all the people that you can not see but they work behind the scenes.

For today’s post I chose one of the first stamp that I’ve ever receive, but still one of my favourite: the circles background. 

All you have to do is: stamp it with clear sticky ink and cover with clear embossing powder. Watercolor all the panel with a wet on wet tecnique and the colors you prefer. Fussy cut the circles and arrange them to make an abstract flower bouquet. 

Die cut the Leafy Branch 4 from ModaScrap and watercolor it, add some black ink splatters to the background, arrange all the pieces and glue them creating layers.

If you like, add some sequins.

I would like to thank you all for being so kind and creative, hope you like this last post.

Bye bye!

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!

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!
