A Way With Words Soft Finish Cardstock Stamping

Shoot For The Moon

May 11, 2019

Hi there! It’s Suzanne here today with a phrase that could easily have been said by my mother! Sage advice.

This card with its words of encouragement is just plain fun to make! You’ll enjoy experimenting with the technique. I was after a dark milky way look, but you could have a bright sky look instead. Just play!

Here is how you can make it!

A Note For You

April 8, 2019

Diana here! Today I’m sharing a blank note card that can be sent for any occasion or no occasion at all –– which is always a pleasant surprise. I combined several different word dies from Suzanne’s A Way With Words collection. It’s always a fun challenge for me to see how many ways I can combine what she has lettered.

1. I started with a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ sheet of cardstock completely sponged in Distress Oxide ink. I was going to use it as a background but then decided to die cut butterflies out of it instead.

Blueprint Sketch, Evergreen Bough, Twisted Citron & Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Inks

2. I die cut 3 of the butterflies from the Butterfly Flourish set making sure that the cut butterfly’s colors would be symmetrical. It doesn’t have to be but I was feeling that it needed to be. 🙂

3. On a white card base, I used the same inks to create a splatter. Squish the ink pad onto an acrylic block and a wet brush to pick up the ink color and tap on a finger to add droplets.

Repeat this process for the colors used on the butterflies.

4. Die cut “a,” “Notes,” and “for you” from the various dies. I trimmed off the “s” on “Notes” by following the curve of the “e” and sanding down the edges to make it look smooth.

5. Adhere all the die cuts on the splattered card base. The card looked a bit unfinished so I used the Copic Multiliner Pen to draw a frame around the card. I didn’t bother making it perfectly straight (because we all know how that would turn out!) but I think a freehand box works well with the ink splatters.

Hope you like it! What other word combos can you think of from the A Way With Words collection?

Thanks!

Get Well Soon

January 7, 2017

by Judi Kauffman

I’m pleased to say that I don’t need a Get Well card right now, thank goodness, but I thought I’d get ahead just in case.

For this project I combined A Way With Words ‘Get Well Soon’ with ‘Pair of Leaves 1’, one of the new Moda Scrap die sets – the line just launched with Elizabeth Craft Designs. The leaves are so lovely and graceful, just like the calligraphy that Suzanne Cannon creates with her words. I know that these two collections are going to be used together a LOT!
