How To Create A Christmas Card Using Planner Essentials Dies

November 14, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Merry Christmas Card.

I love the fact that the Planner Essentials dies can be used for more than just my planner spreads. So, to create my card, I’ve used a variety of dies from the Planner Essentials collection, Joset Designs and Els van de Burgt Studio. I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

Step One. You’ll need to choose two patterned papers from the Christmas Market Collection. Die cut the 4 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the 4″ Stitched Rectangle out of the other patterned paper. Distress the edges of the rectangles. Ink the edges of the rectangles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Use the reverse side of the patterned paper used on the 4 1/2″ stitched rectangle and die cut the 1″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtails out of. Choose another piece of patterned paper from the Christmas Market collection and die cut the 1 1/2″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtails out the paper. Cut the 1″ fishtail down to 4 1/4″. Cut the 1 1/2″ fishtail down to 4 3/4″. Distress the edges of each fishtail. Ink the edges of each fishtail using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Die cut two base trees and each patterned tree from the Planner Essentials – 12 die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. The chevron tree will stay white. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Fired Brick Distress Ink over the entire surface of the dotted tree. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of both base trees. Ink the edges of the base trees and dotted tree using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the same Planner Essentials – 12 die, die cut a small star and medium star out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam over the entire surface of each star. Ink the edges of each star using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. From the Planner Essentials – 14 die, die cut the Merry Christmas sentiment out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Six. Adhere the 4″ stitched rectangle to the 4 1/2″ stitched rectangle. Foam square the 1 1/2″ fishtail 1″ from the right and all the way to the top of the 4″ stitched rectangle. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the 1″ fishtail 7/8″ from the left and all the way to the top of the 4″ stitched rectangle. The fishtails will over lap.

Step Seven. Adhere the trees together. On the dotted tree, adhere the small star at the top. On the chevron tree, adhere the medium star at the top. Foam square the chevron tree 1/4″ from the right and 5/8″ from the bottom of the 4″ stitched rectangle. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the dotted tree 1/2″ from the left and 3/8″ from the bottom of the 4″ stitched rectangle.

Step Eight. Adhere the Merry to the middle of the dotted tree. Adhere the Christmas to the bottom section of the dotted tree. The Christmas word will hang slightly off the left side of the tree and will adhere to the chevron tree.

Step Nine. Cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5 3/4″ x 9″, score at 4 1/2″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Merry Christmas Card.

Ink the edges of both pieces using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. Apply Candied Apple Distress Ink to the Let your Heart sentiment from the Let Your Heart be Light stamp set and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the sentiment out using the 2″ Stitched Circle.

Step Seven. To support the wall hanging, cut a piece that measures 4″ x 5 1/4″ out of thicker cardstock or a bingo card. Ink the edges of the piece using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. Adhere the 4″ stitched rectangle to the 4″ base. Adhere the flourished frame to the 4″ stitched rectangle. Adhere the 3 1/2″ stitched rectangle to the 4″ stitched rectangle.

Step Nine. Adhere the three snowflake randomly on the 3 1/2″ stitched rectangle.

To create this layout:

Step 1: after choosing your main sheet ink the outside edge then cover both sides of your paper with clear gesso and allow to dry or use your heat gun to dry. *covering both sides helps to cut down on warping that you may get when you use mixed media products.

Step 2: taking your planner essentials patterns 2 stamp, stamp the flowery looking stamp with brown ink at 1 inch from the left edge of the paper. then towards the top at about 5 inches from the left, then slightly higher at 6 inches, then closer to the bottom at 9 inches and again at 10 inches lower than the one at 9 inches. Allow to dry or set with your heat gun.

Step 3: taking a coordinating color of mist, use a paint brush to highlight these stamped images.

Step 4: mix another coordinating color of powder colorant (i.e. magicals) with embossing paste and using a palette knife apply beside and an top of stamped images and set with heat gun.

Step 5: die cut each of the following using coordinating papers:

How To Make This Love-Themed Present Set

February 26, 2019

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again. I am very honored to be able to continue as a guest blogger here at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog bi-monthly this year. As my very first project for this year, I´d like to share a fun love-themed present set with you.

Here is what the finished project looks like:

Here is what I did:

Step 1: Die cut the light purple polka dot paper with the present box with the Pillow Box with Handle die. Also adhere the same paper as a background piece to a white card base.
Step 2: Die cut the jar, the hearts, the tag and the straw from white Soft Finish Cardstock using the Summer Drink die cut die set.
Step 3: Now die cut the flamingos also from white Soft Finish Cardstock using the Flamingos die cut die set.
Step 4: Die cut a blue background piece from the Fly & Scrap paper collection papers with the Stitched Rectangles die.
Step 5: Using Distress Inks color the flamingos, the jar, the hearts and the straw. I used mainly various pink tones and an ink blending tool for this step. Stamp a sentiment onto the jar tag.
Step 6: Build the box, then assembly the flamingos and the jar together and adhere on place.
Step 7: Decorate with a matching colored ribbon.

I´ve also recorded a process video for your to watch to give you a better idea on each an every step. Hope you enjoy it!

This is all from me for today. This type of love-themed project is perfect for so many occasions. Depending on the colours you choose, you can create something for Mother´s Day or for a Wedding or for a baby shower even!

I hope I could inspired you to play a little with your papers and dies. See you in April again!
