Floral It’s Your Birthday Mini Slimline Card

May 17, 2022

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I just love the Daffodils dies and I wanted to see what other colors they come in. I was amazed there is quite a few. I came across the Riot Daffodil and it is the inspiration for my card. The Riot is a reddish pink center but I chose to do mine in a darker pink. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7” x 6”, score at 3 1/2” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 3 1/4” x 5 3/4”. Apply Light Blue Ink to the top of the panel using a Blender Brush and fading out to about 3/4. Adhere to card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Diecut Daffodil using White Soft Finish if you will color in all the pieces. If not then use colored cardstock. I chose to color all my pieces in Copic Markers. I used a sticky mat to hold all the pieces including the negative while I colored. Assemble all and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 4 – Stamp Life Is Better On The Farm sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Diecut the sentiment using Diagonal Stitched Fishtails. Trim of the left side and adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

This card can be used for many occasions by changing the sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

New Bucket (of Strawberries) Summer Planner Spread

April 11, 2022
Hello again everyone, it’s Annette Green here today with some more Summer planner pages featuring the new Flower Pot/Bucket die set from Joset. I combined Planner Essentials dies with the flower pot and Strawberries die to showcase some cute photos of my dog Suki eating strawberries, as well as a visit from my parents last year. I’ve created a “Craft With Me” style video if you’d like to follow along as I design and assemble these pages.
As I describe in the video, to make more room for journaling and large sized photos, I added a half-page in the middle of my two full-size pages using the Planner Essentials 14 Bookmark 1 set. This is an interesting way to layer and still see some of the elements from the other pages peeking through.
The star of the show, besides Suki, is the rusty bucket full of strawberries. With a few alcohol inks and some silver metallic cardstock, you can get the same look quickly and easily. It makes a fun embellishment to the page to help tie everything together. I hope you take a moment to watch the video, as I share some techniques I used and helpful design tips along the way. All products I’ve used today are linked below, in addition to some of the other new dies I showed in the video which I used on other projects. Thanks for stopping by today. Have a wonderful week!

Step 2 – Diecut Fitted Oval using a Masking Sheet. Place the negative to the card front. Apply Ink of your choice using a Blender Brush in Hues of Blue starting with the lightest in the center and working out to darkest. The inks I used are water reactive so I splashed some water using a fan brush. You can skip this step. Remove the mask and let dry.

Step 3 – Diecut Daffodils using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Keep the pieces together and color in each piece using any color medium of your choice. I used Copics. See photos below so the colors I used. Assemble and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 4 – Diecut Sentiments 2 – Just Because (sending) using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Keep diecut inside and Stamp the coordinating sentiment (sending) using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Stinking Cute Skunk

March 2, 2022

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here.
A while ago, I was experimenting with different characters that can be made with the dies that I already have. Today I want to share with you an easy way to create a skunk using the Beaver and Squirrel die sets. Let me show you how I made it.

Instructions:
Using the Squirrel Die, cut tail piece from black cardstock and one from white cardstock. Additionally, cut the squirrels nose from light pink cardstock. For the rest of the body, use the Beaver die set. Cut two heads. Cut the body, legs, arms, ears, and inner eye pieces from black cardstock. Cut the tummy, outer eyes, and inner ears from white cardstock

For the skunk tail stripe, use the white tail piece, cut along the center impression line

Adhere the cut white tail piece to the black tail piece

For the skunk stripe on the face, cut along the section of pointy hair and guide down creating a “V”

trim off the pointed tip of the white stripe and adhere to the black diecut face

Adhere the nose at the end of the white stripe

Assemble the body of the skunk as you would assemble the beaver. Adhere the eyes to the head. adhere both the head and tail to the body

Adhere the eyes to the head. adhere both the head and tail to the body

Add a touch of clear glaze pen to the eyes and nose. Create a mouth using a white gel pen

Adhere the ears to the head. Add white gel pen accents to the eyes, and that completes the Skunk die cut.
