Petit Cadeau

April 11, 2019

Hi everyone! It’s Sara here today and I have a new project for you featuring some of the ModaScrap products.

These three small boxes were created to contain three small gifts but, if you like, you can also use them as nameplate. They can be easily adapted to your purpose!

Here are the steps to make them:

  • Die cut three Triangle boxes by ModaScrap and assemble them with Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
  • Die cut three circles from the Dashing Circle die set on a piece of watercolor paper.
  • Stamp the floral wreath from the Wedding Sentiment stamp set by ModaScrap on to the circles.
  • Watercolor the flowers and the leaves with the colors you prefer.
  • Add the letter you need with the same watercolor paint and a fine liner brush.
  • Add the circles with some foam tape
  • Have fun!!

I leave here some more photos..

Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by.

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!

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 Create A Cute Gift Tag

March 3, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you how to create a cute gift tag that’s perfect to add to any gift or gift bag!

To create this gift tag, I’ve used the brand new dies from Joset Designs as well as dies from Els van de Burgt Studio and ModaScrap. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

Step 1. Cut a piece of White Cardstock to 2 3/4″ x 4 1/2″. From the Tags 9 & More – Sparkle die, place the round tag topper with hole cut out at the top of the cardstock tag. Run through die cutting machine. From a scrap piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock, die cut the reinforcement circle. Adhere the reinforcement circle overtop of the hole on the tag. Sprinkle Jade Magenta Nuance over the left hand side of the tag. Spritz with water. Ink the edges of the tag using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam. Set tag aside to dry.

Step 2. From the Party Accessories die, die cut the balloon elements and one of the party hat elements out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Lucky Clover Distress Ink over the entire surface of the balloon and solid hat. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink over the entire surface of the balloon string and top of the party hat. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink over the entire surface of the dotted party hat.

Step 3. From the Monkey die, die cut all of the elements out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Ground Expresso Distress Ink over the entire surface of the monkey head, tail, body, arms and legs. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Tea Dye Distress Ink over the entire surface of the monkey ears, face, hands and feet. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Black Soot Distress Ink over the entire surface of the eyes. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink over the entire surface of the banana.

Step 4. Die cut the 1 1/8″ Stitched Fishtail Banner out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the banner down to 3″. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the birthday sentiment from the Safari Sayings and stamp onto the banner. Ink the edges of the banner using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 5. Adhere the monkey together. Add the mouth in by drawing it in with a black pen.

Step 6. Adhere the banana underneath the monkey’s right hand. Adhere the ballon together and then adhere it to the left hand. Adhere the party hat together and adhere it on an angle on the monkey’s head.

Step 7. Foam square the birthday sentiment 1/2″ from the bottom of the tag. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the monkey to the left of the birthday sentiment.

Step 8. To finish off the gift tag, tie some twine through the top of the hole on the tag.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my cute gift tag.

Making A Tote With The Leaf Pocket

March 2, 2019

Do you make more cards than you can send out? I certainly do –– especially now that I am trying to make more than one card at time when I try a new layout or product.

I normally make a little box or just tie a ribbon around a few as a gift but I’ve discovered that the Leaf Pocket die is PERFECT to make a small tote! The front side is a bit bigger than 4.5″ x 6″ so it can perfectly fit as many A2 cards as you want – just change the thickness of the side base. This will make more sense in the instructions below.

These 4 pieces will make up the foundation of your tote
  1. Start with 2 strips of white card stock 2″ x 10 5/8″ and diecutting 2 leaf pockets. Score the two strips at 4 1/2″.
These are the sides of the tote.

2. Fold along the score lines of the leaf pockets and the strips of paper. The shorter piece of the strips of paper are glue together as above.

Glue the pieces together to finish the tote.

3. Add glue to the flaps of the leaf pocket and adhere them to the inside of the pieces from the previous step. I found it helpful to lay the pocket flat and secure the bottom flap first. By keeping the leaf pocket flat, the sides of the tote will be flushed to the front of the tote.

Tote before embellishments and additional layers.

4. Now you can embellish the tote as is, but I decided here that I wanted a liner against the leaf side to strengthen the tote and to better see the die cut. In hindsight, it would be have been easier to add a liner first before gluing all the pieces together. However, the process is the same before or after.

These are the liners before adding them to the tote.
This is a second tote I made and this is adding the lining before gluing the pockets on.

5. To add the liner, cut two sheets of cardstock 4.5″ x 6″. I penciled in where I needed to cut out a half circle out. As it happens, the circle die in the Love Live tag is the perfect size for this step. You can also use a punch or any other circle die you have.

Much studier with the liner.

6. I nestled two circle dies together to make an open circle as a handle for the tote. Die cut 4 of these and glue them on the inside and outside of the tote for a finished look.

All embellished!

7. I used the Love, Life Tag as a simple embellishment for this bag. The A Way With Words “for you” was die cut 3 times and glued together. You can be done here, or add something to the other side like I did. I had just received the bougainvillea die so I was itching to use it!

Love this color combo!

8. The bougainvillea was made with pink and green cardstock. I touched the center of the tiny flowers with an yellow-orange Zig markers before adhering them the the stamens. I couldn’t help but add a butterfly to the side where the tag wrapped around in the same pink cardstock.

Thank you for indulging in a long blog post! I hope you are inspired to think outside the box with the dies you have. I’m off to make some more of these totes!

How To Make This Love-Themed Present Set

February 26, 2019

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again. I am very honored to be able to continue as a guest blogger here at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog bi-monthly this year. As my very first project for this year, I´d like to share a fun love-themed present set with you.

Here is what the finished project looks like:

Here is what I did:

Step 1: Die cut the light purple polka dot paper with the present box with the Pillow Box with Handle die. Also adhere the same paper as a background piece to a white card base.
Step 2: Die cut the jar, the hearts, the tag and the straw from white Soft Finish Cardstock using the Summer Drink die cut die set.
Step 3: Now die cut the flamingos also from white Soft Finish Cardstock using the Flamingos die cut die set.
Step 4: Die cut a blue background piece from the Fly & Scrap paper collection papers with the Stitched Rectangles die.
Step 5: Using Distress Inks color the flamingos, the jar, the hearts and the straw. I used mainly various pink tones and an ink blending tool for this step. Stamp a sentiment onto the jar tag.
Step 6: Build the box, then assembly the flamingos and the jar together and adhere on place.
Step 7: Decorate with a matching colored ribbon.

I´ve also recorded a process video for your to watch to give you a better idea on each an every step. Hope you enjoy it!

This is all from me for today. This type of love-themed project is perfect for so many occasions. Depending on the colours you choose, you can create something for Mother´s Day or for a Wedding or for a baby shower even!

I hope I could inspired you to play a little with your papers and dies. See you in April again!
Happy crafting,
Sanna

Easy DIY Distress Color Chart

February 13, 2019

Hello everybody! It’s Sara here today and I have a new project for you. Today I’m using the wonderful new stamps from the Planner Essentials line, as well as dies and stamps from ModaScrap, to add a splash of color to your projects!

When I saw the color chart stamp set, I immediately thought that I had to give it a try and make my own Distress color chart.

Here are the steps to make it:

  • Die cut out of some White soft finish cardstock the same number of your ink pads ( I choose Distress Oxide and have 21 of them). I die cut 21 squares of white cardstock with Dashing Squares die from ModaScrap.
  • It would be helpful to have a stamping platform for this project, but if you don’t have one, don’t worry! Place the first square in the platform and stamp the sentiment with an ink of your color chart (optional: if you want you can emboss it with clear embossing powder).
  • Now to the inside: place every square and stamp with Versafine the base of your chart. With the stamping platform it would be easier to stamp multiple times, but you can do the same with acrylic block. Write on the lines the name of your inks and the brand.
  • Choose a stamp (mine is part of a floral wreath from Wedding stamp set from ModaScrap) and stamp it to the correct square.
  • Punch a hole and put them together with a metal ring, embellish it with ribbons and bells.

Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by.

February Planner Page

February 6, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my February Planner Page. For the start of each month, I love creating a planner title page that either reflects an occasion that happens in that month or a season. To create my February Planner Page, I’ve used dies from the Planner Essentials collection and Els van de Burgt Studio. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

Step 1. On a scrap piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock, use a blending tool with foam to blend Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and Candied Apple Distress Ink on the cardstock. Die cut the small Entwined Hearts die twice out of the Worn Lipstick side of the cardstock. Die cut the small Entwined Hearts die twice out of the Candied Apple side of the cardstock. Ink the edges of all the hearts using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 2. From the Blackboard Alphabet die, die cut the F, E, B and dot out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Candied Apple Distress Ink over the letters and dot. Ink the edges of the letters and dot using a Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 3. Choose two pieces of patterned paper from the ModaScrap – Simply Love Paper Pack. Die cut the large Entwined Heart out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the medium Entwined Heart out of the other patterned paper. Ink the edges of the hearts using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 4. Die cut the 3 1/4″ Stitched Heart out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the heart using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 5. From one of the patterned papers you already used, die cut the 1 1/8″ Stitched Fishtail Banner out of the paper. Place the notched side of the stitched fishtail banner on the other side of the patterned paper to create a notch on the other size. The banner will end up measuring 4 3/4″ long. Ink the edges of the banner using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 6. Choose another piece of patterned paper from the ModaScrap – Simply Love Paper Pack. Die cut the planner page from the Planner Essentials – 1 die out of the patterned paper. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the February Calendar stamp and stamp onto the tab of the page. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the bubble stamp from the Patterns 2 Stamp Set and stamp onto the page. Reapply ink to the bubble stamp and stamp again on the page. You’ll need to repeat this step three more times onto the page.

Step 7. With a piece of foam square, adhere the banner to the middle of the page. Then, adhere the stitched heart to the middle of the banner.

Step 8. Adhere the large entwined heart over top of the stitched heart. Adhere the medium entwined heart to the middle of the stitched heart.

Step 9. Adhere the ‘FEB.’ to the middle of the stitched heart. Adhere the small hearts randomly around the hearts on the planner page. To finish off the page, add white lines to the bubbles where the other lines are.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my February Planner Page.
