It’s Sandy Diller with a fun card that would be perfect for sending to a child of any age. With all that is going on in the world – an uplifting message is always welcome.
Who wouldn’t love to find this cute little hero in their mailbox?
This is a slimline card that measures 9″ X 4″. Start with cardstock that is 9″ X 8″ – scored in the center.
Using the Phone Booth die set, assemble the phone booth leaving the door open. I used my label maker to add the word telephone but the Phone Booth kit comes with a stamp that could be used.
Using the Adventure Edges, cut a section of ground, I used green to make it look like grass. Then the inside of the phone booth was added.
Using the Prince die set, cut out the pieces needed to make the prince (or super hero). I used white Soft Finish Cardstock but you could easily use colored cardstock. I added all the colors I wanted using markers.
I trimmed off the bottom portion of the jacket and joined the two pieces together using a piece of scrap paper on the back. Trim off all the “fluffy parts” making a smooth line as shown with the arrows below.
Assemble the parts as shown above.
Add the cape and head – your super hero is ready to go on the card. I colored the inside of the cape with a darker red to make it appear to be shadowed.
Welcome to today’s group post where we will show you some fantastic scrapbook pages. It’s our first group post for this year and we thought a scrapbook challenge was a fun idea. A new year, new ideas and a new page in our scrapbook. Check out all these amazing projects and make sure to visit the designers blogs for more info and pictures by clicking on their names.
Karen here today, sharing a couple cards I made using Silk Microfine Glitter and the templates that are part of the Art Journal Collection. I also used some of the pretty papers and dies that are available here at Elizabeth Craft Designs. Now that Christmas is over, I thought I’d create a couple cards for Valentine’s Day!
LoVe the sweet Honey Bear die! He’s the cutest! I colored him with Distress Inks in Tea Dye and Antique Linen and a couple Copic markers. The Scalloped Heart die has a Fitted Heart Cut out of the center and is cut from Kraft cardstock. I then covered it with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive and used a stencil from the Pattern Stencil Pack. (The stencil really sticks – so do this with some caution!) With the stencil in place, I put down some Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and then CAREFULLY removed the stencil and put down Antique Silver. Here’s a close-up of that pretty glitter.
The sentiment is from the Bear Hugs set and is cut with a Stitched Circle Die. The background paper is from the Reminiscence Book.
The next card used the Florals of Winter dies. The “edge” die is covered with Silk Microfine Glitter in Cool Diamond (with White Soft Finish Cardstock – 90 lb) and Silver using a different stencil. The flowers are also from the Florals of Winter dies and are painted with the ECD Watercolors. Again, the sentiment is from Bear Hugs and is cut with the Diagonal Stitched Fishtails die. The background paper is from the Mystical Winter Collection.
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Holy Night Card.
To create my Holy Night Card, I’ve used a variety of the dies from the Planner Essentials Collection and Joset Designs as well as stamps from Sue Smith. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my card at home.
Step One. Choose two piece of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence The Book. From the first patterned paper, die cut a 4 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square. From the second patterned paper, die cut a 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square. On the 4 1/4″ square, tear in a bit of the paper on three of the sides. Distress the edges of the squares. Ink the edges of the squares using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Two. Choose another piece of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence The Book. From the patterned paper, die cut a 4 1/2″ Fitted Indented Square. Distress the edges of the square. Ink the edges of the square using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Three. Choose another piece of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence The Book as well you will also need the patterned paper you used for the 4 1/2″ square. From the patterned paper you used for the 4 1/2″ square, die cut a 1″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtail. From the other patterned paper, die cut a 3/4″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtail. Cut the 1″ fishtail down to 4 1/4″. Cut the 3/4″ fishtail down to 3 3/4″ Distress the edges of both fishtails. Ink the edges of the fishtails using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Four. From the Reminiscence the Book, you’ll need a piece of cream paper. Die cut the plain globe from the Planner Essentials 28 – Globe die out of the cream paper. Die cut the detailed globe out of Champagne Foil paper. Using a felt applicator, apply Mushroom alcohol ink to the detailed globe as desired. Distress the edges of the cream globe. Ink the edges of the cream globe using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Five. From the Snowy Windows die, die cut the one of the small snowflakes once and die cut the other small snowflake twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the one of the small snowflakes once and die cut the other small snowflake twice out of Silver Foil Paper. Using a felt applicator, apply Mushroom alcohol ink to the silver snowflakes as desired.
Step Six. You’ll need the Holy Night stamp from the Noel Stamp Set. Apply Emboss It Ink to the stamp and stamp onto a piece of vellum. Sprinkle Copper Scroll Modern Gilding Powders over the stamped words. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Once the stamped words have cooled, cut the word into a strip.
Step Seven. Adhere the 4 1/2″ square to the 4 3/4″ square. Foam square the 4 1/4″ square to the 4 1/2″ square.
Step Eight. Adhere the 1″ fishtail 3/8″ from the left and all the way to the top of the 4 1/4″ square. Adhere the 3/4″ fishtail 7/8″ from the left and all the way to the top of the 4 1/4″ square.
Step Nine. Adhere the detailed globe to the plain globe. Foam square the plain globe to the middle of the 4 1/4″ square.
Step Ten. Adhere one of the foil snowflakes to the coordinating white snowflake. Repeat for the remaining snowflakes. Adhere the snowflakes as desired around the globe.
Step Eleven. Adhere the Holy Night word strip to the bottom right side of the globe.
Step Twelve. Cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4 3/4″ x 9 1/2″, score at 4 3/4″. 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 Holy Night Card at home and I hope that you have a very Merry Christmas.
