Magic Halloween

September 29, 2023

Hi It is Els here with a new Blogpost. I love Halloween so I decided to make a Halloween card this time. I hope you will enjoy it and give it a try. I will place the images on my blog!

Finished card.

These are all the part you need.

Cut a piece of black paper at 71/2 – 11 and fold in half, your card is then 5 1/2 – 71/2. The striped paper is 51/4-71/4. The purple is 5-7 and I used the edge die to cut it on both sides. I cut a label out of the paper ( the one with the 2023). Distress the edges, and Ink them. Then glue them on top of each other.

Cut Flowers, leaves, and a spiral roll, then shape the flowers, and glue them together, now you can put some stamen in, and I did some copper cream on it to let them shine.

Place the cute scarecrow, and then you can place the flowers.

When you placed all the flowers, you can adhere that cute little wizard and his broom. He can sit on top of the flowers. Place a pumpkin and some black Mica flakes to finish it. I cut the spiral rolls and when you roll them up you make those roses. On my blog I will place the Images I used and the template for the rose.

Smell the Flowers

April 20, 2023

Hi Everyone, It’s Els here and it is my turn again to give you some inspiration. I made this card with the Perfume Bottle so you can also use it for a Mother’s day card. Below you will find the step by step instructions. Have fun creating this one!

First I print the Image on the Soft finished cardstock, this is ideal to print on. Then cover the bottle with Glossy Accent so that it shines like glass. Let this dry. In the mean time you can die cut all the flowers and leaves you want and colour them.

Also stamp de bee 2x. From 1 bee, cut the wings and put glitter on it. Let this dry and once dry, colour the center black. The other bee you can colour him yellow and black, then glue the wings on top of the whole bee. Adhere your card on a mat of red cardstock and distress it.

When the Glossy accent is dry you can decorate the silverware on the bottle with silver glitter glue. When that is drying you can shape all the leaves and flowers and you can put stamens in the center of the flowers. Then place the whole card on a basic card of 5″ x 7″.

Now you can take your leaves and flowers and you can make a nice arrangement on your card. I also placed a seam binding bow on it and at last you can place the bee on top of the bottle and adhere the stamp. In de right corner I used a stencil.

Close up…………….

I hope you like the card and that you’ll giving it a try too!

Welcome Home

March 9, 2023

Hi Everyone, Els Schutte here today. It’s March so time for another blog post.

This time I made a Welcome Home card using the beautiful Florals 9 and 14. I hope It will inspire you to make a card like this for a friend or new neighbor!

Below you will find the step by step instructions. Have fun creating this card.

I took the page with the text on it, cut it at 8 1/2″ x 11″ and printed this image on it. I also found some nice images in the paper pad and cut them out! ( see image)

Take a base card of 11″ x 7 1/2″ and fold it in half. Now your base card is 5 1/2″ x 7 1/2″. Put some foam dots on the back and glue the big image on the base card. Then glue all the other parts behind it.

Cut some flowers and leaves using Florals 9 and 14. I die cut 3 big, 3 small and 3 center pieces for 1 flower and 4 leaves.

Cut 13 of the Florals 9 flower and color them in the color you like.

Color all other flowers in the color you like and shape them. Once shaped, glue them together.

Make a nice composition on your card with the flowers you made. Stamp also the key with Versamark and put gold embossing powder on it and melt it with the heat tool.

And now your card is ready! I hope you like this card and that you will give it a try. Without the key you can use it also for Birthdays and other occasions.
