I Love You

Hello Samantha here – today I am sharing a card I created using Joset’s Geometric Background die. I had recently used this die to create a simple background for a Halloween card. I wasn’t looking for any particular shape but when I saw the heart I knew I had my next card idea!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: On black cardstock, die cut the Geometric Background die.

Step 2: Remove all the negative pieces and adhere the Geometric backgound to black cardsock.

Step 3: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to the back of pink card stock.

Step 4: Die cut the Geometric Background die.

Step 5: Repeat steps 3 and 4 with pattern paper and speciality cardstock.

Step 6: Use the negative pieces to fill in the heart shape.

TIP: Mark areas on of the Geometric heart to note which pieces will have Silk Microfine Glitter.

Step 7: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to the front of black card stock. Die-cut the Geometric Background then remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer of the negative pieces marked in the image above.

Step 8: Apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (in Fruchsia) to the selected pieces. Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Adhere these pieces into their negative spots.

Step 9: Heat Emboss the sentiment.

Step 10: Optional: Add machine stitched details. Adhere card front to an A6 card base. Embellish card with a twine bow and sequins.

Happy Crafting!

Hello September!

September 10, 2019

Autumn is here, but the weather sure isn’t cooperating! There should be oranges, purples, browns, trees showing their beautiful Fall colors, but so far Florida hasn’t had any crisp days.. yet!

Today’s project is a 6 “x 6 “ card. For the background I used some white texture paste and added just a bit of re-inker to make the soft green. Then spread it over a stencil I have, which adds some dimension. 

The flowers: Back-eyed Susan’s, Love In The Mist and Coneflower went into the Galvanized Bucket (Modascrap Wood Effects Paper) I found a great wooden button at Hobby Lobby for the handle.

For fillers, I used the Frosty Fern, Wheat Sheath and Autumn Leaves.(I brushed a coat of Diamond Glaze on top of the leaves for some shine)
The words are from the “Little Words That Mean A Lot” Stamp Set, and are very apropos here in Florida. We’ve been having rainy days for months! And, of course..there she is…the Lady Bug!

The products I’ve used are listed below. If you’re interested in any, just click on the pictures and you will be directed to the Elizabeth Craft Designs page to complete your order. 

I hope you enjoy this season and are inspired to keep ‘gardening’ year round!

See you next month!

Hello…

August 25, 2019

Hello and Welcome! Samantha here, the card I am sharing today is all about the dies! NO stamping, NO colouring –– simple, fun, geometric card made with the arrows from Planner Essentials #5.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Adhere clear double sided adhesive to the back of pattern paper and cardstock. Next, die cut the arrows several times.

TIP: Be as adventurous and bold with your colour choices –– you could even try silk microfine glitter or shimmer sheetz as alternatives to pattern paper.

Step 2: Die Cut the ‘hello’ die from Words 2 – Thing of You set using the same pattern paper and card stock.

Step 3: Position the arrows before removing the release sheet to adhere the arrows onto your card front (card front measurement: 10.5cm x 15.5cm). Leave appropriately sized spaces for the hello die cuts.

Step 4: (Options) Add machine stitched details. Corner punch the top right corner.

TIP: Instead of adding machine stitching to your card front – use foam tape to adhere the arrows adding a fun dimensional detail.

Step 5: Adhere the hello die cuts. Adhere card front to an A6 card base.

Step 6: Embellish card front with a twine bow and sequins.

I hope you are inspired by my card today –– I love that I can reuse these planner dies in my card making.

Happy Crafting!

Samantha.

A Way With Words Cardmaking Elizabeth Craft Designs General Joset Designs Soft Finish Cardstock

Happy Day!

August 17, 2019

I’ve been seeing a lot of my friends post pictures of their first kid getting their driving permit or actually driving off to school. I’m sure they are as thrilled as this puppy, ears flying back as he takes to the road with his fishing rod. I’m still safe for another year…

Big moments deserve big cards.

To make this card:

I found that with the jeep die and the word dies, a 5″x7″ card base works a lot easier than my usual A2 base. I used a dark gray stock as my base – the same as my bit of road showing on the bottom. In fact, that bit is from trimming down my 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of card stock after folding in half to make my card base. Use your scraps as soon as possible! Lol!

How happy is this puppy?!

Die cut all the pieces you need: My jeep uses black, white, and blue cardstock. The “happy” is the same blue as the jeep and the “Day” is also cut from the scrap in step 1. I used a Molotov Chrome maker for my grill and headlights but you can use silver card stock if you don’t have that. The fishing rod is out of white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. The dog is cut out of Soft Finish card stock and sponged with Distress Oxide Tea Dye ink. I put the jeep together first and added some shine by drawing in with a white gel pen.

Little details like the shine on a card or even the road can really anchor your pieces together.

Create your background by lightly sponging clouds and adding some greenery with the bushes from Adventure Edges. Adhere the strip for the road. My background piece was 4.5″ x 6.5″. I matted it with a 1/16″ border with a light grey cardstock.

Adhere all the pieces as you see on the card. I found it easier to stick the puppy behind the steering wheel of the jeep, then the fishing rod, and then the entire thing onto the card.

As you can see, I chose “happy Day” as my sentiment but in hindsight, or maybe foresight, I should do a “Good Luck” card for the teenager testing or the mom letting go. Heehee!
