Clematis Birthday Card

July 15, 2019

Hi folks, Angela here for this morning’s post!

This is a card created for my sister’s birthday. Its inspiration is from a small flower arrangement that I saw at a local florist that I thought I’d try to re-create on my card for her. The flowers are different, the original had carnations, but I liked the size and shape of the Clematis better. The container they used was a small mercury glass jar. I chose to use the Tin Milk Can and trim it closer to the shape of the jar they used. Silver gilding flakes and metallic paste gave me just what I was looking for, for the finish.

Here’s how it came together:

Cut and colour the Hathorne branch and berries using Copic markers and Nuvo Crystal drops. Set aside to dry.

Create a 6X6 card base from 110lb Soft Finish cardstock.

Cut a 5.75X5.75 piece of co-ordinating cardstock, adhere to front of card base.

Back a piece of 90lb cardstock with double sided adhesive. Cut, using the geometric shape from the Planner Patterns die set. Adhere to card base slightly off centre. Set aside.

Cover both front and back of a piece of cardstock with clear double-sided adhesive. Cut using the Tin Milk Can die. Carefully cut off the top of the milk can to create a vase shape. Peel off protective sheet from the front side. Use silver gilding flakes to cover can. Rub with metallic silver paste to create shadow. Adhere to card front keeping the middle raised with 3d tape.

Cut all flower, wheat, and leaf pieces, from 90lb cardstock.

Colour and shape the wheat sheaths. Place them in the can.

Colour and shape the Hosta leaves

Colour and shape the Baby’s breath.

Colour the center of the Clematis. Leave the petals white. Shape using Susan’s tools and molding mat.

Using Kid’s Choice Glue to adhere all to the card front as in the photo.

Be sure to remember that just about anything can be used as inspiration for your cardmaking.

It’s A Boy!

July 9, 2019

Hi! Diane here with a new card for you! We have been blessed with our 8th grandchild on his way! How happy we are to get ready to celebrate his birth in October. This card could have easily been an “It’s a girl” card too!

Here are the steps to create this card.

STEP 1: The card base

  • Cut a White Soft Finish Cardstock to 12″ x 6″, score in the middle and fold in half for a square 6″ X 6″ card.
  • Cut a 5 1/2″ square out of yellow cardstock.
  • Cut a 5″ square out of a purple cardstock.
  • Die cut the larger size of circles in the Dotted Scallop Circles (#1172) die set, using a pattern paper of your choice, in yellow and purple tones.
  • Using the Dotted Scallop Circles die set again, die cut the third smaller size of circle in White Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Adhere the yellow cardstock on the white card base, than the purple cardstock on top of the yellow one, than the scallop circles (patterned and white) using some Clear Double Sided Tape.

STEP 2: The Elephant

  • Using the Elephant (#1663) die set , die cut all the part of the elephant into some White Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Using some sponge applicator and some Distress Oxide, color the different parts of the elephant (for the inside of the ears, I used the color “Wilted Violet”, for the rest I used “Shaded Lilac”.
  • To give dimension to the elephant, with the Large Ball Stylus tool from the Susan’s Garden 4 Pcs. All Metal Tool Set on the Molding Pad, rub the back of all the parts of the elephant.
  • With some foam adhesive and some Kids Choice Glue, adhere the elephant on the white Dotted Scallop Circles.

STEP 3: The Pansies

  • To make this flower, you can watch Susan Tierney Cockburn in this video.
  • Using some White Soft Finish Cardstock, die cut all the petals 5 times from the die set Garden Notes – Pansy 2 (#1488)
  • Using some ink markers, color the back and the front of all petals.
  • On the Molding Pad, with the Loop Tool and the Reverse Tweezers (from the Susan’s Garden 4 Pcs. All Metal Tool Set), shape each one of the petals.
  • From the Pansies die set, cut 4 times each leaf out of green cardstock.
  • Color the stem with Yellow Pan Pastel, shade the edges with some Forest moos Distress Ink.
  • Draw veins and shape the leaves using the Leaf Pad, the Molding Pad and the tools from Susan’s Garden 4 Pcs. All Metal Tool Set.

Step 4: The Myosotis

  • For this flower, you can watch how Susan Tierney Cockburn makes it in this video.
  • Using the Garden Notes – Myosotis (#1517) die set, die cut one plate of fowers out of some White Soft Finish Cardstock.
  • Color the tips of each flowers with some pale blue ink marker, leaving the centers white.
  • Out of some yellow cardstock, die cut one plate of little centers.
  • Using the tools in the Susan’s Garden 4 Pcs. All Metal Tool Set shape the blue tipped flowers on the Molding Pad.
  • Using an eraser and a toothpick, cup up the little yellow centers. Very lightly, dot the yellow centers with a black fine marker.

Step 5: The Sentiment

  • Die cut the words “It’s” and “Happy” from the die set Words 1 – Celabration (#1465) and the words “Brrrrr” and Joy” from the die set Words 5 – Winter Wishes (#1576), all in yellow cardstock.
  • From the word “Happy”, cut apart the letter “a”.
  • From the “brrrrr”, keep only the “b”.
  • From the “joy”. Keep only the “oy”.
  • Assemble the letters and glue together to write “It’s a boy”.
  • Using some White Soft Finish Cardstock, die cut the banner shown below from the set Banners (#1390).
  • Finalized the card by gluing down the flowers using some Kids Choice Glue, the banner and the sentiment.

Here’s a closer look at the finish card.

I really hope you enjoyed this tutorial!

How To Create Cards With Planner Essentials Stamps

June 19, 2019

Hello everyone! It’s Sanna Lippert here today again, sharing my June Guest Design Team project(s) with you.

I don’t do planners that much, but I still really like the Planner Essentials clear stamp sets that Esther Glas designed. So when I first saw them, I knew I wanted to use them for another purpose: cardmaking! They, by the way, would also work great on art journals, ATCs and tags even.

Here is what I did:
Step 1:
Take a sheet of white Soft Finish Cardstock and the Patterns 1 Planner Essentials stamp set and stamp a grid with an embossing ink onto the paper. Then pour white embossing powder over the stamped area, dabb any residue off and heat set with a heat tool.
Step 2: Repeat the previous step and now use one of the flower images in the same stamp set.

Step 3: Color the grid piece with a green Distress Ink and an ink blending tool and then color the flowers using a water tank brush and pink, orange and yellow Distress Ink tones. After you are done coloring the flowers, apply blue Distress Ink onto the working surface and color the background around the flowers blue.
Step 4: Cut the pieces into a right size with a paper trimmer.
Step 5: Fussy cut the flower piece along the right side edge with scissors.
Step 6: Adhere both pieces onto a white appr. 6×6 inch sized white card base with Kids Choice glue.

Step 7: Add a ribbon to the card and ink a strip of white cardstock with a green Distress Ink, then stamp a sentiment with black ink onto the strip using the Remember Planner Essentials stamp set.
Step 8: Fussy cut the banner OR use the Stiched Fishtail Banner die to die cut it and adhere the banner in place. Recorate with roses and liquid drops.

For my second card I used the same stamp sets with these steps:
Step 1:
Use the residue ink from the blue background card on your working surface and dabb a piece of white cardstock into it until you have grabbed all color from the surface.
Step 2: Take the Patterns 1 Planner Essentials stamp set – the number stamp – and start stamping the image repeatedly onto the background with the same Distress Ink tone.

Step 3: Use an ink blending tool and apply the same Distress Ink tone onto a strip of white cardstock. Now use the Remember stamp set to stamp a sentiment with black stamp ink onto the strip.
Step 4: Adhere the pieces together and cut any residue parts off with scissors. Then adhere this piece onto a appr. 6×6 inch sized white card base.

Step 5: Take the border stamp from the same stamp set and using black stamp ink stamp the image repeatedly on both sides of the free white area on the card.
Step 6: Decorate with puffy stickers or buttons and add a few liquid drops for additional decor.

Of course I also recorded a video for you to watch, so you get a better idea on how I did each and every step!

I hope you like my card ideas and get inspired to try something similar out yourself!! See you all in August with another tutorial post.

Happy crafting,
Sanna

How To Create This Quick Card For Summer

June 12, 2019

Hello everyone!

It’s Sara here today, and I have a new summery project for you: a sailor card, which is perfect both for a young boy and for an adult one.

Don’t know why I went for a round shape, but maybe I’ve thought about the waves. Who cares?

So, all you have to do is:

  • Cut a circle with the third larger die from Dashing circles on to a folded piece of cardstock, minding that you have to off set it just a little bit in order to create a round folding card.
  • With the same die cut a piece of light blue paper, and shade it with Distress Ink to create a night sky.
  • For the waves fussy cut three pieces of vellum with different  widths, add a little bit of white embossing powder to the borders
  • Stamp and watercolor the bear from Sailor’s life stamp set with no line technique and die cut it with the matching die.
  • Cut a circular frame with the circle die you use before and the fourth larger.
  • Assemble all your piece with Kid’s choice glue and mounting tape to create some dimension.

And that’s it! Hope you like it!

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!

Tina
