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!
When I first started playing with this stamp set, I had plans to arrange the leave and flowers more traditionally. Instead I went with what I love –– pattern play –– looking for fun ways to arrange and layout patterns onto my card front.
Step 1: Using pattern paper and card stock, stamp and die cut the flowers and leaves from Color My Flowers set.
Step 2: Position the flowers and leaves on to your card front measuring: 10.5cm x 15.5cm
Step 3: (Optional) Before adhering the flower add machine stitched details to the leaves on your card front.
Step 4: Adhere the flowers using foam tape.
Step 5: Use watermark ink to stamp the sentiment three times on to black cardstock, apply white embossing powder, then heat set.
Step 6: Trim the sentiments and adhere to your card front.
Step 7: Embellish with a twine bow and sequins. Adhere card front to an A6 card base.
Thank you for stopping by! For me this is a quick and easy way to create with stamps and their co-ordinating cut out dies. All you need is pattern paper, cardstock, and a fun layout…
Hi there! It’s Suzanne here today with a phrase that could easily have been said by my mother! Sage advice.
This card with its words of encouragement is just plain fun to make! You’ll enjoy experimenting with the technique. I was after a dark milky way look, but you could have a bright sky look instead. Just play!
Hey everyone! It is EK here and with Mother’s Day just around the corner (it is May 12th, just in case you missed the memo)! I thought I would whip up a super simple mother’s day card for all the fashionable mothers out there.
My mother is the woman who has most influenced my fashion choices through life and I thought this card would be a super fun way to stay thank you to her this for teaching me how to be a lady.
To create this fun mother’s day card, I pulled out Krista Schneider’s Fashions 2 stamp set and a collection of Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step One: Trim a piece of 12×12 White Soft Finish Cardstock to 6×6 inches. In copic friendly black ink, stamp out the images from the Fashions 2 stamp set.
Step Two: Color in the images with a collection of alcohol markers. I used copics. For the green I used YG61, YG63, and YG67.
Step Three: For the red areas I used R32, R35, R37, and R39.
Step Four: The white/beige sections were colored with E40, E41, and E43.
Step Five: The few blue areas were colored with B91, B93, and B95.
Step Six: Give each image a glow tracing the outside of each colored area using the white/beige markers. I used E40, E41, and E43.
Step Seven: Die cut the colored images with the largest Stitched Squares die.
Step Eight: Trim a piece of Dusty Lavender Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 and score it and fold the cardstock to create a 6×6 inch card frame.
Step Nine: Die cut a piece of Celadon Green Soft Finish Cardstock with the largest Stitched Squares die set.
Step Ten: Adhere the green die cut crooked to the card frame with some 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Adhere the stamped and colored cardstock over the green crooked as well.
Step Eleven: Place a sheet of Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto the back of Dusky Lavender Soft Finish Cardstock. From the Words 3 Holidays, die cut the sentiment so that the adhesive is onto the back of the die cut words.
Step Twelve: Stick the words onto the finished card.
For all you mothers out there, Happy Mother’s Day. For all you daughters out there, remember to thank you moms for the lessons they taught you. And to my mother, thank you for teaching me to always dress like a lady.
It’s Sara here today, and I have a new fun project for you:magnets! These magnets are really simple to make and they can be used in many different ways.
All you have to do is:
Take your stamps (Cacti, Laundry Party, Patchwork and Puppies stamp sets), stamp all the subjects with Ditress Ink Antique Linen on cardstock and color them all with no line technique and your favourite watercolors.
Let them dry and die cut all the pieces with the matching dies. To thicken the single magnet, just die cut the same design multiple times from your cardstock. To help you stick the pieces together, use Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheets.
To finish the magnets simply add a little circle magnet to the back and you’re done!
Hope you like it! Let me know if you try it in the comments below!
Hi there! It’s Suzanne here today with a card full of love.
There are many ways you could make this card, just by changing the coordinating paper. This design was created for a younger person, but I challenge you to make one for someone in your life by changing up the colours and patterns –– I’d love to see them! Go ahead and share them on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Family Facebook Page!
