Celebrate The Season

December 2, 2019

The 2019 Holiday Season is in full swing. That means lots of cards and gifts and, if you’re like me, you sometimes need a gift or card in a hurry –– this is just for you.

It’s Sandy and I have two quick and easy projects to share with you today. I like to get the most value possible from my crafting supplies, so today I will be showing you how I made a stencil using the Snowflake die set and how I used it to make a card and a gift tag.

I began by cutting the Snowflake die, using only the center portion of the die – you don’t need the outside edge, from a sheet of transparent film, the kind used for presentations (shown below). This works well because I’m using a wafer thin die but a thin packaging material could work also.

I cut the 8.5″ X 11″ sheet in half to fit in my die cutting machine and then cut the snowflake directly in the center. I made two stencils using the large and medium snowflake.

This is a 5.5″ square card so the appropriate size Stitched Indented Square was used along with the Stitched Rounded Square that is one size larger. You could easily make this card any size you prefer using these die sets.

After securing the stencil to the paper with some low tack tape, I began adding the color using a circulare motion in the center. The Picket Fence brushes were used here but a color blender could be used as well.

The second color was added using the same method. The colors I used are Distress Oxide Inks, Broken China and Wilted Violet.

I covered the entire panel using the same method.

The panels were layered together and ribbon was added with a cute little bow.

The word “Celebrate” was stamped and embossed using white embossing powder and then cut out using the banner die.

The banner was added to the ribbon and then all panels were added to the white card base. The corners of the card were rounded to match the rounded squares on the card.

For this clean and simple tag – I used the same stenciling technique and then added some sequines for a little bling. “Cheers” was added to give a festive feeling to the tag. Now I’m ready to party, how about you?

Thanks for joining me and HAPPY HOLIDAYS,

How To Make These Cute Birthday Tag Critters

March 12, 2019

Hey Friends. It’s EK Gorman here today sharing some tags I created using the some of the new critter dies sets.

One of my favorite things about the new critter dies from Joset is that they are so incredibly versatile. What was originally designed for some safari fun, can easily be turned into a bit of everyday birthday day labels. Today, I am taking a few of the new critter dies and turning them into the perfect tags to hang from birthday presents for both the old and young.

Step One: Die cut the piece from the Zebra die set and some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two: Color the zebra strip die cuts with some alcohol markers. I used N8 copics.

Step Three: Color the hair, tail and hooves with alcohol markers. I used N6, N8, and 100.

Step Four: Color the body, head, legs and ears with alcohol markers. I used N0, N2, and N4.

Step Five: Color the nose and ears with alcohol markers. I used R00, R20, and R22.

Step Six: Assemble the body of the Zebra using Kids Choice Glue.

Step Seven: Using Kids Choice glue, add the zebra stripes to the body. Tweezers help in the placing of these small parts. I used the ones from the 4pc all Metal tool set.

Step Eight: Repeat Steps one through seven, but using the Monkey die set and the Little Chick die set. The Monkey parts were colored with E21, E23, E25, E27 and E29. The Little Chick was colored with Y00, Y02, Y06 and Y08 plus YR15 and YR16.

Step Nine: Die cut balloons, party hats and fun party accessories from the Party Accessories die set. Color them with alcohol markers. I used RV00, RV02, RV04 and RV06 for the pink accessories, R05, R24, R29 and R89 for the red accessories, Y21, Y26 and Y28 for the gold crown, B12, B16 and B18 for the blue balloon, and N4, N6, and N8 for the black mustache. Adhere the accessories to the critters with Kids Choice Glue.

Step Ten: Trim a piece of Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock, True Blue Soft Finish Cardstock and Spring Green Soft Finish Cardstock to 6×6 inches. Then die cut the top of the tag from the Tags & More Lattice die set. Trim off any excess paper.

Step Eleven: Add the lattice die cut effect to both the top and the bottom of the tags using the Tags & More Lattice dies.

Step Twelve: Add tag reinforcements from the tag die set to the top of the tags. I mixed and matched paper colors to add a bit of whimsy to the card.


Step Thirteen: Adhere the critters and party accessories to the tags. Stamp a sentiment onto each tag using the Safari Sayings sentiment stamp set. Finally, add some colorful ribbon to the top of each tag. I also added some glossy accents to the top of all they party accessories so that the accessories were shinny.

Thank you for peeking in today to my project today. I hope you think they are as much fun as I do. Make sure to share how you are playing with the collection of new critter dies over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Family Page.

Until then, happy crafting!

Stripes Background and Simple Masking

August 16, 2018

 

Hello! Samantha here – Today I’m sharing a card I created that came about simply by stamping a background stamp. I tend not to use pattern paper as much as I used to, but I do love a good versatile background stamp. Elizabeth Craft Designs have a few background stamps that I have used (a few times now) to create my own patterned paper. Once I had stamped my background the idea developed to use a masking technique to create ink blended features using Birthday Sentiments and the co-ordinating Labels 1 Die.

Memories

Hi Friends, it’s Sandy Diller here to share a project that would be good as a keepsake or a gift.  I was in my local craft store a few weeks ago where I saw the cutest little box that contained a photo album.  I thought I would give it a try using my own measurements and decorations.  We recently took a trip to the beach so I thought this would be a good way to save some fun photos.
