To create my Imagine Wall Hanging, I’ve used a variety of dies, stamps and stencils from Charlene and Ilse’s Art Journal Specials Collection as well as dies from Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my wall hanging at home.

Step One. Die cut a 4 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of Black Cardstock. Distress the edges of the square.

Step Two. Die cut a 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of a piece of book page. Place the Storytelling stencil in the middle of the square. Using a palette knife and Texture Paste Opaque Matte through the stencil. Remove the stencil and allow the stenciled area to dry. Once the square is dry, 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. Die cut the Bubbles out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the entire surface of the bubbles. Sprinkle Burnt Copper Leaves embossing powder over the entire surface. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Five. From the Streetlights die, die cut the street lamp out of black cardstock.

Step Six. Die cut one of the blooming branches from the Blooming Branches die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the other bloom out of a piece of book page.

Step Seven. Choose two of the leaves from the Spring Fling Stamp Set. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to both stamps and stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Colour the leaves in using the Watercolour Palette and a waterbrush. Once the images have dried, fussy cut them out. Ink the edges of the leaves using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. Next, you’ll need the cotton stamp from the First Sights of Spring Stamp Set. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the stamp and stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Colour the cotton in using the Watercolour Palette and a waterbrush. Once the image has dried, fussy cut it out. Ink the edges of the cotton using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Nine. From the Morning Letters Stamp Set, you’ll need the letters to spell out Imagine. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to each of the letters and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish cardstock to spell the word imagine. Fussy cut the word out. Ink the edges of the word using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Ten. Adhere the 4 1/4″ stitched indented square to the 4 3/4″ stitched indented square.

Step Eleven. Adhere the bubbles to the middle of the 4 1/4″ stitched indented square. Foam square the ornate gate to the middle of the bubbles. Adhere the street lamp to the middle of the ornate gate.

Step Twelve. Adhere the first blooming branch overtop and to the left of the street lamp. Adhere the other blooming branch overtop and to the right of the street lamp. Adhere one of the stamped branches slightly overtop of the left blooming branch. Adhere the other stamped branch slightly overtop of the right blooming branch.

Step Thirteen. Foam square the cotton image to the middle of the branches making sure that you can see part of the street lamp. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the imagine word to the right side of the cotton.

Step Fourteen. Punch two holes at the top of the 4 3/4″ stitched indented square. Tie a piece of twine through the two holes to create the hanging part for your wall hanging.

Happy Birthday To You Card

August 3, 2020

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. The new Fairy release has 3 new Background dies. Organic Triangles, Floral Burst and Leaf Pattern. I love background dies because you can diecut and use them as is or they can be used as a stencil. Background dies make it super easy to create any occasion cards in no time at all. Just diecut the background die, applying ink before or after and add a big bold sentiment. Below you will find the steps to create your own Happy Birthday to You card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”. Diecut Floral Burst Background. The diecut will be your stencil.

Step 3 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”. Apply Ink of your choice filling the Cardstock. I inked using the colours of a rainbow. I used Distress Oxide Inks. Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Ripe Persimmon, Dusty Concord, Tumbled Glass, Moved Lawn, Cracked Pistachio.

Step 4 – Place the stencil created from Step 2 on top of the panel. I used some Pixie Spray on the backside and some Painter’s Tape to secure it. Apply Black Ink all over. Remove the stencil. This technique is called a Reverse Stencil Technique. Trim the edges and adhere to the card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 5 – Stamp Hello sentiment onto White Soft Finish Cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Trim the edges and adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 6 – Optional – For added interest and sparkle randomly adhere Jewels.

This card can be used for many occasions by changing the colours and sentiment. The Floral Burst Background die will be available in the shop this week. Below is a link to the product list. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting.

How to Create a Inspire Pocket for your Planner

July 23, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you How to Create a Inspire Pocket for your Planner.

To create my Inspire Pocket, I’ve used a variety of dies and stamps from the Planner Essentials Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my pocket at home.

Step One. From the Planner Essentials 26 – Planner Pocket 4 – Tag & Toppers, die cut the pocket twice out of kraft cardstock. Place the pockets in front of you, making sure that on one pocket the angle faces right and on the other pocket the angle faces left. From the Background Stamps 1, you’ll need the chicken wire stamp. Apply Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink to the stamp and stamp randomly over the entire surface of both pockets. Fold the edges and then ink the edges of both pockets using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Add adhesive to the flaps on each pocket and adhere the two pockets together.

Step Three. Mark three holes on your pocket. One hole will be 1″ from the top and 1/4″ from the left of the pocket. The second hole will be 1 3/4″ from the top and 1/4″ from the left of the pocket. The third hole will be 1 1/8″ from the bottom and 1/4″ from the left of the pocket. Using a 1/4″ hole punch, punch the three holes you just marked.

Step Four. Choose a reinforcement from the Reinforcement Variety Pack. Die cut the reinforcements out of a piece of black cardstock. You’ll need a total of six reinforcements.

Step Five. From the Planner Essentials 26 – Planner Pocket 4 – Tag & Toppers die, die cut the stitched banner out of White Soft Finish Cardstock, the inspire word out of kraft cardstock and the tab out of whatever colour you want. I went with a yellow/orange colour cardstock. Ink the edges of the banner and tab using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. From the Planner Label die, die cut the 1 3/8″ square label out of black cardstock.

Step Seven. Adhere three of the reinforcements over the three holes at the front of your pocket.

Step Eight. Flip the pocket over and adhere the other three reinforcements over top of the holes on the pocket.

Step Nine. Adhere the tab to the top of the 1 3/8″ square. Foam square the 1 3/8″ square 3/4″ from the right and 1/2″ from the bottom of the pocket.

Step Ten. Adhere the stitched banner to the middle of the 1 3/8″ square. Adhere the inspire word to the middle of the stitched banner.

Step Eleven. Slide in whatever you want in your pocket, I put in a note piece that I made a while back. For some extra reinforcement, I add mini staples to the top left, bottom left, top right and bottom right of the pocket.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Inspire Pocket.

Folded Leaf Pocket Gift Card

July 9, 2020

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again with a July card tutorial for! When I look at the Planner Essentials line, I think of ways of using them in cardmaking. I created a gift card with Planner Essential die cut dies for this particular card.

So for this card I combined dies from the Planner Pocket 3 die set as well as used the Budding Florals from the Art Journal line and the lovely Leaf Pocket die from the ModaScrap line. Here is how I did the card:

Step 1: Die cut the Leaf Pocket from a piece of patterned paper and fold the flaps towards the inside on the back. Apply Clear Double Sided Tape on the folded flaps.
Step 2: Next die cut a slip of kraft cardstock using the small “tab” piece of the Planner Pocket 3 set. This will be the gift card base.
Step 3: Now die cut 2 pieces of the “cover tabs” from the same patterned paper used for the leaf pocket. Fold along the folding line. Die cut a lined paper with the bigger rounded piece to create a space for your gift card text.

Step 4: Take a piece of kraft cardstock and place the die cut and folded leaf pocket on top and make folding marks alongside the pocket – add 1-2 mm space on both sides.
Step 5: Fold the base and cut in size. Now cut slightly smaller pieces of patterned paper to matt all the sides of the card base.
Step 6: Die cut the leaves using the Budding Florals leaf die. Next add small strips of Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet on a strip of kraft cardstock and die cut two Poppies. Apply Silk Microfine Glitter onto the tape areas.
Step 7: Adhere and assembly all pieces on place (see the video for more precise steps) and add a stamped sentiment using Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set. Add twine and your card is done.

To give you a better idea of each and every step, I´ve again recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch. Hope you like it!

See you again next month with another card project tutorial!

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna

Doing this step will ensure that your images will remain in the same place.
