For The Party Animal

May 13, 2019

Hello & Welcome! Samantha here. Today’s card is one of those cards that once you’ve put it all together, you love it so much you’d rather frame it then give it away! Well that’s how I feel about it anyways…

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Use both the Frame It – Stitched Rectangle and Frame It – Stitched Square die as shown below to create a ‘photo’ frame die cut.

Step 2: Stamp the Sentiment.

Step 3: Using shades of green cardstock and pattern paper die cut several leaves from Tropical Florals and Trio of Leaves.

Step 4: Arrange the leaves on a card front measuring 12.5cm x 17.5cm. When you are happy with the placement of the leaves adhere them down. Use foam tape to adhere the ‘photo’ frame die cut.

(Optional) Add machine stitched details

Step 5: Die cut the zebra and Giraffe die – assemble these as shown, tucking them behind the ‘photo’ frame die cut.

Step 6: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to white card stock and die cut the hat and glasses from the Party Accessories die set.

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

Step 7: Adhere the Party Accessories to the die cut animals. Adhere card front to a 5″ x 7″ card base. Embellish with googly eyes, sequins and a twine bow.

I love how this card came together – I think I’m going to have to buy a frame for it! The safari animals are that cute, I don’t think I could part with the card. Do you have projects that you end up just keeping for yourself?

Happy Crafting!

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!

Recreate This Bright Card For Someone Sweet!

March 17, 2019

Hello! It’s Wanda today, sharing a bright, fun card that is perfect to give someone who has brightened your day in some way.

Check out my tutorial below for this sweet card below:

On a piece of 5″ x 7″ white Yupo paper, I worked up my background using Alcohol Ink (Ranger) and canned air. Put a drop of ink on your Yupo….

… and then use the canned air to move the ink. For this piece I was trying to blow straight down in the center of each drop of ink. Tip: If the ink doesn’t move how you want, just add another drop and blow again.

I continued this step until I was happy with my piece.

Then, I die cut Sweet (A Way With Words, Sweet Smiles Set) from adhesive-backed craft foam, placing the die on the adhesive side.

I cut a piece of hard plastic packaging, large enough to adhere the word to. Then I removed the adhesive liner from the foam and stuck the word to the plastic.

My initial plan was to use Alcohol Lift Ink and my “foam stamp” to lift and then stamp the word Sweet on my card; however, my Alcohol Lift Ink is hiding from me.

Plan B – I used Archival Ink in a light color to remove color from my alcohol ink background. I stamped Sweet with the Archival Ink, blotted where I stamped with a paper towel to remove excess moisture and then rubbed/buffed the area to bring out the lift. I repeated this all the way down my paper.

I decided to trim 1/8″ off the right side and top of my paper so that I could attach this to a 5″ x 7″ folded card base. These strips can be used on other projects, or on the inside of the card to give it a little extra pizzazz.

I added an edge around my panel using Gold Paint and Light Gold Silk Microfine Glitter. Working one edge of the panel at a time so the paint wouldn’t start to dry, I sponged on the paint and then added the glitter. The glitter sticks perfectly to the wet paint. Once the paint is dry you can remove the excess glitter.

You Are (A Way With Words, You Are Perfect Set) and Sweet were die cut from both white and yellow cardstock. They were layered together, white on the bottom and yellow on the top, offsetting each just a little bit.

Attach Clear Double Sided Adhesive to White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die Cut the detailed butterfly (A Way With Words, Butterfly Flourish Set), placing the die against the adhesive side.

Remove the adhesive from the die cut and add Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to the butterfly. Remove excess glitter and burnish with your fingertip.

Add fiber to the left side of the background panel, and then adhere panel to folded card. Attach die cuts as shown. The butterfly was glued on by just the body area so the wings can pop up, adding an extra 3D element.

Glitter Dot Stickers (Silver/Gold) were added to the butterfly body as well.

I hope you like today’s card!!!! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Hugs, Wanda

February happens to be my Wedding Anniversary month – so for me, it’s a doubly romantic time of year and a wonderful excuse (not that I need one) to create cards for the heart.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Die cut the two piece Puzzle Heart die using pattern paper and corrugated card stock.

Step 2: Adhere the detailed puzzle pieces to the corrugated heart.

Step 4: Adhere the heart and sentiment to a 10.5 cm x 15.5 cm Kraft card front.

Step 5: (Optional) Add a detailed machine stitched border (using a combination of straight lines and zigzags).

Step 6: Using scissor, cut any left over pattern paper and corrugated card into small uneven strips and adhere these as shown to your card front.

Step 7: Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the front of White Soft Finish Cardstock (measurement 3cm x 3cm).

Step 8: Die cut one heart puzzle piece.

Step 9: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of True Red 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 10: Use foam tape to adhere this puzzle piece to the card front. Embellish the card with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to a A6 card base.

Welcome 2019

January 22, 2019

Hi everyone,

Sandy Diller here! I hope your new year is going well. It is always refreshing to think that we have a chance to start over and that’s what it’s all about with my project today. I have started collecting my Planner Essentials and decided to try something a little different using them. I made a 2019 calendar using the Planner Essentials as my starting point and went from there with products from my Elizabeth Craft Designs stash. I hope you enjoy what I’ve done.

Instead of using the planner itself I began by making my covers using a lightweight chipboard and then covering it with some awesome paper from ModaScrap. I adhered the paper using Clear Double sided adhesive. Using one of the planner pages dies as a template – I made the holes at the top to correspond with all the pages inside. The entire thing is held together by 6 rings.

Because chipboard was used for the covers – it stands up by itself and can be flipped from month to month.

I have linked all the products at the end so you can take a closer look.

This project was so much fun to make and I loved giving it away because I know the recipient will be enjoying it all year long.

HAPPY 2019,

Sandy
