Hello there everyone, it’s Sanna here with a Guest Designer project. But first, I´d like to congratulate everyone on the design team. It’s a great team to be part of! I feel very honored to be able to stay here and share crafty projects with you as a guest blogger. Today is my turn to share the first project, so let’s get started.
Moikka, it’s Riikka here with my last Guest Design Team post for Elizabeth Craft Designs! I want to thank you for the honor of guesting this year and I appreciate your comments. It has been a great ride and I have loved working with the dies and other supplies! My favorites are the new patterned papers and the great stamp sets, so I’m definitely going to continue using those in my makes in the future!
For this last post I’ve made some sweet treats with the Lollypop die set – some candy ATCs and a layout. The idea and the color palette came from the two papers you can see mixed in the first lollipop above – the minty green polka dot and the pink solid paper. They are something I wouldn’t have thought of combining otherwise but as they lay on top of each other when I was going through the supplies in search for an idea for this last post, I noticed how good they looked! And I started to think about candies immediately so then the ball started to roll, so to say. I also mixed in some white to brighten the cards and the black stamping brings in the contrast.
I took some step-by-step photos while working on the ATCs. Below you can see how I layered and combined the different mediums and how the process evolved. As always, you can use the same steps to create something else as well – a regular card or a layout like I did for my second project. Without further ado, here’s the tutorial!
Hello there! It’s Riikka here today with another guest project! Or actually two, as always. Today I have a double treat as there’s this layout with a step by step tutorial and a card with video tutorial! Both of the projects are done with a winter theme or vibe. Both of the projects have a blue, white, grey color scheme, white splashes, and snowflakes. I also tried to add the winter vibe using Silk Microfine Glitter as frost and twinkly snow.
The layout is about the last princess birthday my younger daughter had. It was almost two years ago. Since then she’s gotten more into football and skateboarding. The Elsa dress I did for her for that 5th birthday fit well with the winter theme well, and she’s also a child of winter.
