February 4, 2019

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Today I have a fun Easter card to share with you! It’s combined using some old and new product from Joset Designs –– the new character die Little Chick and the Bunny die. Below are the instructions so you can make your own super fun Easter 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 horizontal side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish cardstock to 5 1/4” x 4”. Diecut Adventure Edges II using a scrap piece of cardstock. Using ink of your choice create the clouds on the upper section of the cardstock. I used Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass.

Step 3 – Diecut Adventure Edges II for create the Foliage. Dark green for the Foliage and lighter green for the grass. Adhere to the background created from Step 2.

Step 4 – Diecut Little Chick and Bunny using Color cardstock or Ink it yourself. Assemble the characters using Kids Choice Glue. Adhere to card. The big egg shell under the grass and the smaller egg shell under the grass. Adhere the backside Bunny over the big egg shell and remember to tuck some carrots in there. Adhere the Little Chick to the left bottom side.

Step 5 – Stamp Spring Sentiments using Versafine Onyx Black Ink to the panel just above the Bunny. Adhere the entire panel to the card front.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card. This card can be used for other occasions by changing the sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Trellis Easter Basket Card

April 4, 2015

Hi Friends!

It’s Debra today. Happy Easter! I’ve been thinking of the days when my children were young enjoying  filling beautiful Easter baskets with decorated eggs and treasures.  I wanted to create a basket card and fill it with glittered eggs just as my children did. I used the Bamboo Trellis die to create my basket. Let me show you how.

ECD bp 4 egg 1a P1070947

Instructions:

1. Fold an 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of white cardstock in half to form a standard A2 size card base. Cut a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of white cardstock. Emboss with the Fleur de Lis embossing folder. Die cut the embossed piece with the Accordion Oval Card die. Clip out the center oval creating a frame. See photo below.

2. Die cut the Bamboo Trellis from cream cardstock and clip off the bottom part. Nest the two largest decorator ovals from the Accordion Oval Card die together, closer at the bottom, and die cut from cream cardstock. Clip from the oval and cut in half to form the handles for the basket. Ink all pieces with brown ink. See photo below.

3. Using scraps of green cardstock, die cut 2 grass edges from Outdoor Edges and 2 grass strips  from Country Scapes- Country Flora 1 to use as grass for the basket. Cut a small green piece to cover the center of the trellis. Adhere the handle strips on the back side of the embossed piece, showing through the front. Adhere trellis to the bottom 3rd of the oval opening. Trim off excess. See photo below.

4. Cover a piece of white cardstock with Transparent Double-Sided Tape. Add eggs and butterflies from the Small Eggs Peel-Off to the adhesive, sticky side down, and glitter with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Brush off excess and polish with your finger. See a video that Els created HERE to see how this technique is done.

5. Color Peel-Offs with Copic markers as shown in the video and trim closely with Elizabeth Craft Designs Fine Pointed Scissors.

6. Die cut a bow from the wreath bow die from a pink Velvet Adhesive Sheet and another from cream cardstock. Save the cream negatives to place inside the bow on the card front.

7. Assemble the card. Adhere a piece of light blue pattern paper to the top half of the card front. Add the embossed basket panel to the card front on foam adhesive. Adhere front 3 eggs to basket on foam adhesive and back 2 eggs directly on the card base. Add grass between eggs to fill in space. Add bow to top of basket. Trim outside of oval with Transparent Glitter Border. Add butterfly to top left to complete.

Happy Easter

ECDHappyEasterwm

Hi everyone,

It’s Frances Byrne here today. As Easter is only two weeks away, I decided to create an Easter card for my tutorial today. I have used some of Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Peel Off Stickers and another one of the grids from Susan’s Garden Patch range of dies.

Here is how I created my card:

1. Die cut the grid from the Garden Patch 7/8 inch & Mini Leaves die set using brown cardstock and also designer paper.

2. Trim out the grids on the left side of the grid as per photo above. Layer grid to a piece of blue cardstock which is 4 1/2″ square. Add the designer paper squares to the outer grids. Cut a piece of white cardstock 2-7/8″ square and adhere it into the large grid.

3. Create a top-folding card from green cardstock which is 5″ square and attach the layers created in step 2 to card.

4. From the Small Eggs Peel-Off stickers, place three eggs and two butterflies onto white cardstock that has Transparent Double-Sided Adhesive on top. Remove release sheet, cover peel-offs with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and polish glitter with your finger. You can see a video Els created using this technique HERE. Color your images as desired.

5. Cut a piece of green cardstock 1″ x 3-1/2″ and another which is 2″ x 3-1/2″. Use the grass die from the Outdoor Edges set to die cut grass, keeping the die near the top of the card so you keep the full depth of the card. Ink edges using green ink. Trim grass so it is 2-7/8″ wide.

6. Assemble Easter Eggs and grass, adhering one of the eggs to the white cardstock first, then the 2″ deep grass over this. The last two Easter Eggs are attached to the card using foam tape and finally the 1″ deep grass again adhering with foam tape.

The inside of the card:

7. Cut a piece of white cardstock 3-7/8″ square and layer this to a piece of brown cardstock 4-1/16″ square. Layer this to a piece of blue cardstock 4-1/2″ square which is adhered to the inside of the card.

8. Roughly trim around the negative Easter Egg and butterfly image which remains after using the peel-off for your card. Peel off any excess black peel-off sticker that may be around your image until you just have the image as per photo above.

9. Cut a piece of Transfer Sheet large enough to fit over the Easter Egg and butterfly. Remove the protective backing and place the tacky side of the Transfer Sheet onto the negative shapes. Burnish with a bone folder or your fingers and carefully lift the Transfer Sheet checking to ensure that all of the pieces lift at once. You can see Els’ video using this technique HERE.

10. Now move the Transfer Sheet with negative shapes attached to it over to the card. When it is in the right spot, place it down onto the card and rub the front of the Transfer Sheet to release the pieces onto the card. Carefully lift the Transfer Sheet to check and make sure all of the negative image pieces are now on the card. (Don’t remove the Transfer sheet until all pieces are in place).

11. Using the Alphabet 1 – Caps die set, die cut “EASTER” from green cardstock that has Transparent Double-Sided Adhesive on the back of it. Adhere the letters so they are centered to the inside white card.

12. Die cut “Happy” from the Happy Birthday die from green cardstock that has Transparent Double-Sided Adhesive on the back of it. Adhere this above and to the left of the word “EASTER”.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial.
