Glittered Peace On Earth

November 9, 2019

Hi, Diana here! Today I’m sharing how to make a card you might have seen as part of Suzanne Cannon’s holiday release. Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Silk Microfine Glitter is the ONLY glitter I will use in my craft room because it’s the only one containable! And it’s so fun to watch it turn glossy – very satisfying like the way heating up gilding or embossing powders.

To make the card, I die cut the A Way With Words Peace on Earth die 4 times out of white card stock. I also cut out one out of white card stock that was covered in a sheet of Elizabeth Craft Designs double sided tape as well as a set of extra star dies that come with the die set.

Cover the stars with the release paper from the star die cuts.

After peeling off the release sheet from the Peace on Earth die cut, cover the starts with the release paper from the star die cuts. In this way, you can cover the sticky die cut with Silver Sand Microfine Glitter and rub in the glitter. Remove the star release paper and then add Sand Dunes Microfine Glitter on the stars. I also went ahead and did one of the stars with Sand Dunes and 2 others in Silver Sand.

Making the stars a different color makes the words pop more.

I then adhered the other 4 layers to the die. The background is sponged using Distress Inks (Broken China, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire) – the keeping the center a lighter blue. I adhered the layer onto an A2 white card base, finishing the front with a white gel pen for stars/snow.

The layered die cuts add a lot of strength and dimension to the card while still laying flat.
Loving the glitter against the dark blue background.

Thanks for looking! I wish you could see how shiny the lettering is and how deep the blue looks in real life. I liked this so much I made a very similar card but using the new Flourished Deer die set. I did not use glitter but added a wreath around his neck using tiny leaves I trimmed from the Leafy Branch Die and tiny dots of the pearl rose Craft drops.

Thanks for stopping by –– I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!

Let Love Bloom

October 31, 2019

Hello! Welcome! Samantha here, sharing my love of all things gold and glittery… I was so excited to get my hands on the new Craft Drops that I wanted to share a different way of using them. A perfect match with the latest release Cherry Blossom Branch die.

Card Instruction:

Step 1: Die cut the Blossom branches and adhere these to Kraft cardstock.

Step 2: Using different shades of pink and purple card – die cut the blossoms.

Step 3: Using a small brush or finger spread the Craft Drop paste on to the edges of the blossoms.

Step 4: Stamp the sentiment.

Step 5: (Optional) Add machine stitched details.

Step 6: Adhere all the Blossoms.

Step 7: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to pink cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Light Gold). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 8: Die cut the remaining blossom dies. Adhere these to the blossoms on your card front.

Step 9: Embellish the card with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 card base.

I love how shimmery the gold sparkles off the blossoms – the photo doesn’t do it justice!

Happy Crafting!

Sneak Peek With Falalalala

October 12, 2019

Have you started on your Christmas cards yet? It’s my favorite time of the year and I love making Christmas cards. Here’s one I made this week with a sneak peek of new dies from A Way With Words that will be available later this month.

How do you decorate your halls for Christmas?

I don’t know about you but in the years of cardmaking under my belt, I never once thought to alter designer paper. I used it as is or hoarded it. I will sponge the edges sometimes but it depends on the paper – the glossy ones don’t take to sponging very well. But I had a bit of an epiphany making this card.

The white die cut shows up better on the darker paper.

I knew I wanted to use this beautiful wood grain paper from Through the Lens paper stack but the white die cut got kind of lost in it. Normally, I would add a black drop shadow to it to help but then I decided to use a couple of Copic Markers in the tan/beige hue to darken it up just a bit while retaining all the lovely woodgrain. I simply colored the entire sheet with the markers. Aaah – now the (coming soon) Falalala die cut show up so much better.

I used 2 rectangle dies to trim down the paper – nesting the smaller die inside and then adding a black 1/16th inch matting to it. I popped that back in with the larger (now open) wood frame onto an A2 base card layer.

As you can see, I still went with a black die cut of Falalalala to add a drop shadow. The new Flourished Holly dies conveniently come in layers so I was able to do a Forest Green silk microfine glitter on the outline, Soft Green on the leaves, and Bright Cranberry for the berries.

I also added a white embossed “Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly” on black card stock in the upper left corner. Having all the words in white tied the card together nicely. Now tell me you didn’t look at that card and automatically sang the lyrics to yourself. 🙂 Thanks for looking and have fun making those Christmas cards!

The lyrics in white just pop!

A Way With Words Birthday Gift Box

September 28, 2019

Hi Friends! It is EK, and I am so excited to share this small gift box I created. I have a teenager now, and I have been looking for a fun way to give his friend’s birthday cash in a more creative way than just a simple card. I thought the A Way With Words Gable Box by Suzanne Cannon was the perfect way to give a little birthday cash.

Step One: Die cut some Dove Gray Soft Finish Cardstock with the Gable Box die.

Step Two: Pre-fold all the edges of the gable box. This make a big difference later when you are assembling the box.

Step Three: Using some copic friendly black ink, stamp out the long candle image twice and the sentiment from the A Way With Words Happy Birthday Collection stamp set.

Step Four: Using alcohol makers, color an ombre effect across the whole box. I used YR20, YR21, YR23, YR24, YR27, E19, E18 (lightest to darkest) copic markers.

Step Five: Color in the candles with an alcohol maker. I used E07 for the base and Y02 for the flame.

Step Six: Using a white gel pen, add some details to the stamped images. Using some Kids Choice Glue, paint a little glue onto the flames and add some Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.

Step Seven: Using some 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, add some adhesive to both the tab and the bottom of the box. Assemble the box.

I just love how this little box came out. I think it is perfect for a fall birthday.

Thanks for peeking in today. Let us know your favorite way to gift cash outside of a traditional birthday card in the comments below.

I Love You

September 26, 2019

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!

Eat, Drink & Be Scary

September 17, 2019

Hello – Samantha here! Today I am sharing a Halloween-themed card. Halloween might not be wildly celebrated here in Australia – but I have always enjoyed the colour schemes and fun images associated with this holiday. I also enjoy eating candy and chocolate…

Instructions:

Step 1: Using black cardstock die cut the spider web and adhere this to a black card base measuring 10.5cm x 15.5cm .

Step 2: Using bright pink cardstock die cut the spider web – use the negative pieces and insert these into the negative space of the black outlined spider web.

TIP: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to the back of the pink card before die-cutting to make the adhering process quick and easy.

Step 3: Repeat step 2 to fill in the remaining negative spaces using bright orange and purple card or specialty paper.

Step 4: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to black card stock and die cut the spiders 3x.

Step 5: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Basic Black). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 6: Using watermark ink – stamp the sentiment. Apply a generous amount of white embossing powder and heat set with a heat gun/tool. Trim to size as shown.

(Optional) Add machine stitched detail to the spider web.

Step 7: Assemble card – use foam tape to adhere the sentiment and spiders. Embellish with enamel dots and a twine bow. Adhere to an A6 side folding card base.

Happy Crafting!
