Let Your Dreams Soar Card

January 4, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, I’m thrilled to be sharing with you today my Let your Dreams Soar Card, which is perfect to give to that special someone in your life. To create my card, I’ve used a variety of stamps and dies from Suzanne Cannon! To compliment the products from Suzanne Cannon, I’ve also used dies from Els van de Burgt Studio.

Step One. Die cut the 4″ Stitched Rectangle out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Sprinkle Hot Pink, Raspberry and Turquoise Magenta Nuance onto the rectangle. Spritz with water. Dry the paper with a heat tool. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the hexagon stamp from the Pure Spring stamp set and stamp randomly on the rectangle as desired. Reapply ink to the stamp as needed. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. From the Butterfly Flourish, die cut two of the medium butterflies out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the small butterfly from the same die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Four. Die cut the flourish from the Flourished Frame die twice out of Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Five. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Let your dream soar sentiment from the Soar Collection and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the sentiment into two strips. Fussy cut the sentiment out of the two strips. Ink the edges of the sentiments using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. Adhere the 3 1/2″ stitched rectangle to the 4″ stitched rectangle.

Step Seven. Adhere the two flourishes to the left side of the 3 1/2″ stitched rectangle. Foam square the three butterflies over top of the flourishes.

Step Eight. Adhere the sentiment strips to the bottom right hand side of the 3 1/2″ stitched rectangle.

Step Nine. Cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thank you for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Let Your Dream Soar Card.

Hello Sunshine –– Summer Dreaming!

December 15, 2019

Good morning! Laura here today! It is very cold here right now and I am missing the heat of summer! Since it is winter and I can’t actually enjoy the summer right now I did the next best thing and created a summer layout!

To create this layout:

Step 1) Cut your papers, 1 at 12×12, 1 at 10×12 and 1 at 11×12 then ink the edges and assemble
Step 2) Die cut 4 circles of varying sizes. I used 5 1/4, 4 1/4, 2 3/4 and 2 1/4 in the stitched circles

Step 3) Die cut one sand castle and one palm tree then ink and assemble

Step 4) Die cut two tags and ink the edges – I used the tag from the planner essentials 7
Step 5 ) Die cut the filmstrip from planner essentials filmstrip

Step 6) Add your title and assemble

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s That Time Again!

December 10, 2019

Hello everyone, Diane here to present you one of my Christmas cards. Christmas cards are my favorite to make and I hope you’ll enjoy this tutorial.

Step 1: Card base

  • Cut 12 X 6 inches white cardstock and fold in half (to make a 6 X 6 inches card).
  • Cut a 5 3/4 X 5 3/4 inches square out of gold cardstock.
  • Cut a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 blue cardstock.
  • Adhere each layer on top of the other with some Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Tape .

Step 2: Background

  • Using the Planner Essentials Dies #1610 – Planner Patterns die set, die cut the middle pattern (boxes shapes) in some gold cardstock and once in red cardstock. Keep all the little parts in the pattern.
  • Put some Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the back of every other row of the gold die cut. Remove all the pieces not covered with the tape (see picture below).
  • Remove the tape and adhere on the card base.
  • Leaving the first row empty, adhere some red pieces with some Kids Choice Glue on the next row. Repeat for the next two rows (see picture below).

Step 3 : Reindeer

  • Using the #1681 Reindeer die set, die cut all the parts of the reindeer in colored cardstock.
  • Also using this die set, die cut all the parts of the wreath in different colors of cardstock.
  • Put together the reindeer and the wreath with some Kids Choice Glue as shown in the picture below.
  • Put some accent glitters on the lights of the wreath.
  • Put some googling eyes on the reindeer.
  • Adhere the reindeer on the right side of the card with some foam adhesive tape.

Step 4: Christmas gifts

  • Using the die set #1568 – Santa’s Sleigh, die cut 2 medium size gifts and one small gift using some green, red and yellow cardstock.
  • Die cut the bows for each gift, alternating the colors.
  • Using some Kids Choice Glue, assemble the gifts.
  • Glue the gifts on the left side of the card.

Step 5: Sentiments

  • Die cut the words ”happy” and ”holidays” out of the #1567 Words 5 – Winter Wishes die set into some red cardstock.
  • Using some Kids Choice Glue, adhere the words on the top of the card.

Here you go, the card is finish! Thank you for your visit and I hope you have tons of fun making you own Christmas card!

Believe In The Magic Of Christmas Gift Tag

December 7, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, I’m thrilled to be sharing with you my Believe in the Magic of Christmas Gift Tag, which is perfect to add to any Christmas gift or gift bag this holiday season. To create my gift tag, I’ve used a variety of stamps and dies from Suzanne Cannon! To compliment the products from Suzanne Cannon, I’ve also used dies the Planner Essentials Collection.

See my step-by-step below – I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

Step One. Die cut the large tag from the Planner Essentials – 2 die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the two snowflakes from the Christmas Collection stamp set and stamp randomly on the tag. Reapply ink to the stamps as needed. You’ll want to stamp a total of four large snowflakes and three small snowflakes. Sprinkle Burnished Silver Modern Gilding Powder over the stamped images. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. From the Falalala word, die cut it out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the word down to 2 1/2″. Apply Emboss It Ink to the word. Sprinkle Kells Gold Modern Gilding Powder over the word. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Three. From the Flourished Christmas Minis 2 you’ll need the star. Die cut the star out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the star. Sprinkle Kells Gold Modern Gilding Powder over the star. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Four. From the Peace Die, you’ll need the stars. Die cut the star out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to three of the stars. Sprinkle Kells Gold Modern Gilding Powder over each star. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Five. Die cut the Christmas Ornament from the Love, Joy, Peace Ornament out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the ornament. Sprinkle Gothic Black Modern Gilding Powder over the ornament. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Six. Die cut all the pieces from the Flourished Holly out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Festive Berries Distress Ink over the entire surface of the berries. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of the flourished holly piece and small outline holly leaf. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink over the entire surface of the full holly leaves.

Step Seven. Die cut a 2 1/2″ Stitched Circle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the circle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. From the Let Your Heart Be Light stamp set, you’ll need the Believe in the Magic sentiment. Apply Festive Berries Distress Ink to the sentiment and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the sentiment into three strips. Ink the edges of the strips using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Nine. Adhere the stitched circle to the middle of the Falalala word, making sure the flourish is showing. Foam square the Falalala word to the left side of the tag. Adhere the ornament overtop of the circle.

Step Ten. Adhere the flourished holly together. Adhere the star to the middle of the circle. Foam square the flourished holly to the left hand side of the ornament.

Step Eleven. Adhere the three sentiment strips to the right hand side of the circle. Adhere the three stars as desired around the tag.

Step Twelve. To finish the tag, tie a piece a twine through the hole at the top of the tag.

Thank you for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Believe in the Magic of Christmas Gift Tag.
