How To Use Sentiments To Create A Background

June 6, 2019

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. I have a sweet and simple card to share with you using sentiments to create a background. I used the Garden Party Clear Stamps from Krista Schneider. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Trim Soft Finish Café au Lait to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. Stamp Garden Party sentiments (Bloom, Blossom, Grow) using a soft brown Ink. You could mix it up but I decided on the sentiments repeating on each row. Diecut Garden Notes Frame It Stitched Squares. Save the inner square. Diecut Dashing Rectangles and adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Stamp Garden Party image onto White Soft Finish Cardstock using Gina K Amalgam Ink. This is an alcohol friendly ink. Color in the image using alcohol markers. I used Tri-Blend Markers by Spectrum Noir. Diecut the image with the matching die.

Step 4 – Diecut Dotted Scallop Squares using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere the center square from Step 2 on top of the Dotted Scallop Square diecut and then the diecut image using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Optional – Wrap some twine around the bottom 3 times and tie a bow. Adhere to card using foam tape.

This card can be used for any occasion. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

How To Create This Happy Spring Card

April 24, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Happy Spring Card. Spring is definitely here on the west coast of Canada and has been providing a ton of inspiration for my projects these days.

To create this card, I’ve used dies and patterned paper from ModaScrap as well as a stamp set from Joset Designs. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

Step 1. From the Blue Cotton Candy Paper Pack, you’ll need the white flower kraft patterned paper. Die cut the 4″ Dashing Rectangle out of the patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of the paper using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 2. Die cut the 3 1/2″ Dashing Rectangle out of the White Soft Finish Cardstock. Sprinkle Aquamarine and Jade Magenta Nuance lightly in the middle of the rectangle piece. Spritz the powder with water. Once the paper has dried, ink the edges of the paper using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 3. Die cut the 2 1/4″ Dashing Circle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Cottage Ivy Memento Ink to the branch stamp from the Wedding Sentiments stamp set and start stamping in the circle. Reapply ink the branch as many time as needed to complete a circle of branches.

Step 4. Apply Onyx Black Versafine Ink to the Happy Spring stamp from the Spring Sentiments stamp set and stamp in the center of the circle. Add a Transp.Glitter/Gold Dot in between each stamped branch in the circle. Ink the edges of the circle using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 5. From the Wood Effect Paper Pack, you’ll need to choose one of the wood patterned papers. Die cut the 2 3/4″ Dashing Circle out of the patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of the paper using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 6. Die cut the Lace card out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the Lace card down to 4″.

Step 7. Die cut the three Dragonflies out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Lightly sprinkle Jade and Aquamarine Magenta Nuance powder overtop of the dragonflies. Spritz the powder with water.

Step 8. Adhere the 3 1/2″ Dashing Rectangle piece to the 4″ Dashing Rectangle piece. Adhere the lace card element to the left hand side of the 4″ Dashing Rectangle.

Step 9. Adhere the Happy Spring circle to the wood circle. Foam square the wood circle 1 1/8″ from the left and 3/4″ from the top of the 4″ Dashing Rectangle.

Step 10. Adhere the dragonflies as desired around the Happy Spring circle. To finish off the card, cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4″ x 10 1/2″, score at 5 1/4″. Adhere the card front to the card base.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Happy Spring Card.

I Melt for Cocoa

February 7, 2019

Since we are in full swing of winter, that means in my house we are in full swing of cocoa consumption. It seems every other day new snow is falling and tired kiddos need a little post school pick me up of sweet hot chocolate. So today, I thought I would whip up a little zero calorie treat that fits the seasons of warming up in the form of a mug of cocoa and a melting marshmallow.

Step One: Stamp the focal images from the Marshmallow Snowmen stamp set onto some 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. Color the images in with alcohol markers. I used my copics.

Step Two: Die cute the images using the coordinating Marshmallow Snowmen die set.

Step Three: Using the Dashing Circles die set, die cut a ring from a piece of Dusky Sky Soft Finish Cardstock to create the rim of the mug. Die cut a circle that will fit inside the mug rim from a piece of Bronze Metallic Shimmer Sheetz to be the cocoa.

Step Four: Using a piece of polka dot printed paper from the Sweet Vintage Rose collection, die cut it with the Dashing Rectangle die set.

Step Five: To create the handle of the mug, die cut an ‘O’ from some Dusky Sky Soft Finish Cardstock. Discard the ‘O’, and use the negative scrap from the inside of the letter. It sounds funny, but works perfectly.

Step Six: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the printed paper and mug/cocoa onto an A2 card frame.

Step Seven: Using some 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, add the mug handle.

Step Eight: Add a bit of 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the bottom of the melting marshmallow. Add some three-dimensional squares to the top of the image. Adhere it to the shimmer sheetz circle. Adhere the stamped banner above the mug.

Step Nine: Stamp in brown ink, the sentiment from the Cute Winter Sentiments onto some 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. Trim the sentiment and matte it with some Rust Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere it to the bottom left of the A2 card.

Step Ten: Using the same brown ink that you used to stamp the sentiment distress the edges of the A2 card frame.

What you get in the end is a fun mug of cocoa that is sure to brighten any child or chocolate-lover’s day.

Thanks for peeking in, and I hope you are staying warm.

Love Valentine’s Day Card

January 15, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Love Valentine’s Day Card. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about creating cards for the occasion. The inspiration for my card came from ModaScrap’s True Love Die. With that element figured out, I added more to the card with die from Joset Designs to finish it off. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

Step 1. Die cut the heart edge from the Valentine’s Edges out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 2. Choose a piece of patterned paper –– the ModaScrap Simply Love Patterned Paper Pack is perfect for this project. Die cut the 3 1/2″ Dashing Rectangle from the patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a Blending Tool with Foam.

Step 3. Die cut a 3 1/2″ Dashing Rectangle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Place a stencil with “x’s” overtop of the die cut piece. Sprinkle Red, Rosebud and Hot Pink Magenta Nuance overtop of the stencil and spritz with water, remove the stencil. Allow the rectangle to dry.

Step 4. Place the 3″ Dashing Rectangle overtop of the stenciled rectangle piece and run through your die cutting machine. You’ll end up with the piece shown above step 3 and the piece shown below step 3. Ink the edges of both pieces using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 5. From the True Love Die, you’ll need the small to large hearts. Die cut the hearts out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Sprinkle Hot Pink Magenta Nuance overtop of the Love heart, sprinkle Rosebud Magenta Nuance overtop of the small heart and sprinkle Red Magenta Nuance overtop of the medium heart. Spritz all three hearts with water. Once the hearts are dry, ink the edges using Black Soot Distress Ink and a Blending tool with foam.

Step 6. Adhere the heart edge to the 3 1/2″ patterned paper rectangle.

Step 7. Adhere the 3 1/2″ stenciled rectangle on an angle overtop of the 3 1/2″ patterned paper rectangle. Foam square the 3″ rectangle to the middle of the 3 1/2″ patterned paper rectangle.

Step 8. Foam square the hearts in a row in the middle of the 3″ stenciled rectangle piece.

Step 9. Cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5″ x 8″, score at 4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Love Valentine’s Day Card.
