Hi! It’s Elena here and today I am suffering from Spring Fever. As a result, I have created a colorful window box card full of flowers to help satisfy my craving for all things spring. I used the Garden Party Clear Stamps along with some foam tape and several different papers, die cut and layered together to create added dimension on an otherwise simple card. This card could be sent as a friendly hello or, with a change of sentiment, be a fun Mother’s Day card too. Here’s how I made it:
Hello everyone! How are you? Can you believe it’s August already? Luckily it’s only the start so it still feels like summer, but autumn will soon be slowly creeping in. Not that I have a problem with that. I rather like the beginning of the autumn with the long, warm evenings and the golden light that makes the pine trees appear to be deep red. And the leaves, the colorful leaves that start to turn to red, orange, yellow and gold and then rustle under your step. A wonderful time!
This time I did a layout to celebrate autumn and a card using the same techniques. Add a dandle or two to turn it into a birthday card, or send it just to make someone’s day, no special occasion needed!
Let’s get started with the tutorial so you can make your own golden leaves to greet autumn!
Hello there! How are you today? Doing fine, I hope! Today it’s Riikka here with a couple of guest projects. For these two I took inspiration from the Arrows and Dreamcatcher dies for a Native American feel. My first project is a layout, the second is a card.
The photo was taken a couple of years ago when I was on a local train, heading off to demo at a craft fair. If I recall correctly, it was my first time to demo at this event. Nowadays, I’m fortunate enough to demo there on regular basis. The warm tones of the photo and the gaze to the future fitted my page perfectly, so I did a layout that is about dreams and how to keep dreaming and reaching for one’s goals.
Happy Spring – It’s Sandy here with you to share a card that has all the feelings of spring with a rustic touch. Butterflies are always a popular theme and I’ve used one from the Butterfly Pivot Card along with the Gatefold – Elegant Roses to create a whimsical feel.
Hi there again! It’s Riikka here with spring feelings! There’s still snow on the ground here, but the sun is shining more and the ever increasing amount of light really marks the start of springtime! Soon the birds will begin to migrate north and blooms will emerge and… well, it’s a wonderful time of the year!
To celebrate springtime, I made some ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) using green and brown – brown for the earth, soon to be revealed when the snow melts, and and green for the new plants emerging. I also made a layout using the same colors and dies and other supplies, but first let me show you how I made the cards!
These little birds are enjoying the Christmas season. Good Morning, this is Selma Stevenson today and to design this cute card, I used the Joset Designs Birds die set. Here is how the card was created:
Hi Crafting Friends, it’s Caz here and I am back with another Pop it Ups Wednesday card and today I have used the Pop it Ups IRON FENCE to create summery scene. As Autumn approaches I am holding onto the memories of summer with some pretty trees and colourful birds.
Hi Everybody! I’m Kathleen Adams and I have the honor of being today’s guest designer. I was inspired by my granddaughters love for the boardwalk at Santa Cruz, CA. She never seems to tire of wanting to spend the day there. Here’s how I made this card.
Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today. It is always fun to go to the beach for some summer fun. Today I used three of the Joset Designs die sets; Lighthouse, Rainbow Sky, and Hot Air Balloons to create a fun card. Also Els van de Burgt Studio Stitched Frames, Fitted Frames and a piece of her Wood, Through The Lens card stock was used.
Hello Crafty Friends! Kathy Jo here sharing a thank you card I made for a male friend- I wanted something masculine, yet bright and cheerful. The Thanks die from the A Way With Words collection and Through the Lens Patterned Cardstock (Wood Series) were just a couple of Elizabeth Craft Designs products used to create the cheerful card.
