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.

Frame with Orchids

July 1, 2022

In the Friday Live show with Els there was a question if we have a Floral die where we can make an Orchid with, so this is where I came up with…………and I promised to do a step by step blogpost so here it is!

I used the Florals dies nr: Florals 4 Florals 12 florals 18 Florals 16

So this was the example I made and the next one with the frame we are making!

We are making a double frame and on top I combine the orchids with some other flowers.

Cut everything you see here and cut 5 of each flower and 4 of the stamens

Take the bigger flowers and cut 2 petals off so you have 2 left on the top and 1 on the bottom.

Take the light Green Ink and ink the big flowers in the center, put Yellow on the tiny ones in the center.

Color the stamens Green.

Put your tweezer on the bottom and fold the petal around it.

Shape these flowers on the back, then turn them and press in the center.

Take the tiny flower and fold the top 2 petals inside up and the bottom one to the back, put tiny orange dots on them.

Now glue all the 3 flowers on top of each other see the photo.

make all 5 of them and put some yellow flocking powder in the center.

Glue the stamens together.

Glue the flowers on the stamens and put those extra knops on there aswell.

For extra I cut these flowers and leaves out , colored them and they go on the frame as well, I didn’t do this step by step because the frames Els did so you can check her live videos to see how to make a frame and then you can decorate it.

So I hope you liked this step by step tutorial for the orchids.

I used the next dies:

Florals 4 – 12 – 18 – 16 – 19 – 15 – Boxframe – ferns – Leaves

Under The Sea

June 2, 2022

It’s me again, Els. It is already June and that means a new Month with new inspiration. This time I made a sea style card and below you will find the step by step instructions. I hope you have as much fun as I did making this card. Have fun creating!

Cut out the dies of white cardstock and the upper layers from silver cardstock. I didn’t used the fish and the binoculars.

Color the white cut-outs with Ink and glue the silver cardstock on top of them.

Cut a piece of white cardstock of 4″ x 8″ for a the card base and make a 21/4 inch hole in the center.

Glue the porthole over the hole on top the octopus with the helmet and below the shell and starfish.

Glue acetate behind the hole.

Put some rust paste on the porthole and the helmet and place some glossy accent drops on the acetate. Stamp some bubbles.

Put some glossy accent on the bubbles too and glue some prills down.

Stamp 2 Jellyfish on a light blue paper and stick it behind the porthole.

Take a piece of White Cardstock 41/4″ x 81/4″ and make a light construction where the Jelly fish are coming.

Then place the card back and adhere 3D foam behind that so the light has space enough.

Cut a fern and 5 flowers out of white cardstock and color them with Green and Blue ink, then shape them and put a blue stamen in the center hole.

Place the flowers as shown on the photo and then your card is finished! I hope you like the card and that you give it a try!
