Hey Everyone! It is EK here and I am popping in with this fun camping hippo themed card using the new Tent die set and Hippo/Rhino die set. I am actually at Girl Scout camp this week teaching crafts to campers, so it seemed only fitting to create a girl-scout-inspired camping card today!
I snuck in a full video today sharing how I colored the die cuts using both distress inks and copic markers.
Step One: Die cut the Tent die set out of 90lb White soft finish cardstock. Color tent pieces with distress ink.
Step Two: Blend distress ink onto a 6×6 card frame using the Earth & Sky stencil and distress ink.
Step Three: Die cut the Hippo die set and color the pieces with Copic markers. Assemble the pieces with Kids Choice Glue.
Step Four: Assemble all the pieces onto the card frame using both clear Double Sided Adhesive and Kids Choice Glue. Stamp a sentiment onto the card frame using the new Build Your Own Sentiments 1.
I hope you enjoyed checking out my camping hippo. Are you camping this summer with your friends or family? Let us know in the comments below, and which of the new critters you would use to highlight you camping trip in a craft project. Until then, Happy crafting!
It’s time for June’s Sunday Stamping with Hedgehog Hollow. It’s amazing to think I have been doing Sunday Stamping for over a year now (thanks, TimeHop!). I love playing with my Elizabeth Craft Designs goodies each month and having a blog post scheduled always gives me a push to challenge myself to come up with something new.
I hope you all having a wonderful Sunday. We are definitely seeing some signs of summer in Ohio although we seemed to have skipped spring. With summer comes wedding season! We don’t have any this year, but we do have our wedding anniversary coming on Tuesday so I’m certainly feeling in the mood! Today I have a really quick and easy wedding card for you, and I love the touch of elegance it has, plus you can customize the base depending on the color theme of the wedding….

Hello there everyone, Sanna here today. Welcome to my last tutorial of the year, the last project I’ll be doing as a member of the Die Cut Design Team. It´s been a fabulous two years and I have enjoyed every minute of it. But before I tell you more about that, I´d like to share this card tutorial with you.
This card – well these cards, actually – were inspired by the recent background challenge. As you might recall, I made quite a few cards for that challenge. I love creating backgrounds for my projects with dies, stencils and stamps as well as various media. This card features one of the newest background dies and this is how I created it:
