Hi everyone, it’s Tina here with another Birthday Wish Mini Slimline Card. I used the Donkey along with the Once Upon A Time Accessories for some Butterflies and the Farm Accessories for the Flower that is entwined in the Donkey’s Tail. 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 – Diecut Adventure Edges (cloud) to create a stencil for a cloud background. Place the diecut on the card front and using a Blender Brush apply ink. I used Distress Oxide Ink in Tumbled Glass. Move the stencil down and repeat until you filled up the complete card front.
Step 3 – Diecut Adventure Edges (grass) using Green Cardstock. Adhere the grass to the bottom using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 4 – Diecut Donkey using a Light Grey and Dark Grey Cardstock. Assemble and adhere the Donkey in between the Grass using Kid’s Choice Glue
Step 5 – Diecut Farm Accessories (flower petals, flower center and leaf stem) using various colors of Cardstock. Assemble and adhere the flower in between the Donkey’s Tail using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 6 – Diecut Once Upon A Time Accessories (Butterflies) in various colors of Cardstock. Adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 7 – Stamp Life Is Better On The Farm (sentiment) using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
This card can be used for several occasions by simply changing the sentiment. An idea is you can change the flower the Donkey is holding with the tail to Balloons instead using the Party Accessories. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
Karen here. I love googly eyes. Ok, that’s really random, but they are just the cutest! And googly eyes on the critters from Joset’s Designs are just too cute. Today, I used the adorable Panda Bear die and some googly eyes to create a card of appreciation for a boss who is moving onto his next role.
To create this card, I first cut an 8-1/2″x11″ piece of black cardstock in 1/2 and folded one part of it in half to create a card base. I then created the card front by cutting a slide from one of the papers in the Rainbow of Happiness paper collection. I turned one part over and cut the card front using the Stitched Rounded Rectangle dies.
I added some denim ribbon across the middle. Next I created the Panda Bear. I cut the pieces with black cardstock and with 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. After I cut the pieces, I generally lay them out before I start to put them together like this:
How cute is that little guy??! To finish this card, I added a sentiment from the Bear Hugs Sentiment Set and a couple gems to highlight the sentiment. So easy and so fun! Thank you for stopping by today!

Step 4 – Diecut Once Upon a Time Accessories (clouds & sun) using White and Yellow cardstock. Adhere to card front using Kid’s Choice Glue and Foam Tape to top layer.

Hello there everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again today with another guest design team project share. For today´s card idea I created a set of two masculine, clean and simple, graduation cards. As my son finished high school level and exams this June, I need a nice card for his graduation festivities.
I used woodgrain patterned paper and instead of flowers, just leaves to add a special touch to the card. Also, the leaves are done out of Shimmer Sheets, to add just a touch of festivity to the card. Here is how the card is done:
Step 1: Take light blue Soft Finish Cardstock and using the Summer Fun Sentiments stamp set and grey Distress Oxide stamp ink, stamp the sentiment “well done” onto the carstock.
Step 2: Next die cut a piece of woodgrain paper using the Stitched Rounded Rectangles die cut die and then stamp “I´m so proud of you” with black stamp ink onto it using the Build Your Own Sentiment 1 stamp set.
Step 3: Take a darker blue toned cardstock to mat the stamped cardstock strip. This will make the stamped element stand out more from the background. Then adhere the pieces onto the cardbase.
Step 4: Take a piece of Shimmer Sheet and apply a Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheet onto it. Now run the sheet thru your die cutting machine, but don´t die cut the image thru (don´t use a metal plate in your die cutting machine). This way you will get an embossed image. Next take your precision scissors and cut around the edges of the “embossed” image.
Step 5: Adhere everything on place and add some faux stitching around the edges to finish off the card. Optionally you can also add a few Craft Drops for decor or leave the card as it is. You now have a easy-to-mail, flat, yet decorative, masculine card done.
Since I had all the products alraedy on my desk, I also did a second card using the same basic idea and the same products, but modified the idea a little. This is a great way to strech one basic idea and make several variations of it at once. Besides, it is always good to have a card or two for just in case as backup!
I hope I could inspire you to create masculine clean-and-simple styled cards yourself! See you again next month with another card tutorial. Until then, wishing you a lovely June.
Happy crafting, Sanna

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Special Moments Wall Hanging.
To create my wall hanging, I’ve used a variety of dies from Suzanne Cannon and Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my wall hanging at home.
Step One. Get a heavy piece of cardstock, cardboard or a print you no longer want to use and die cut a 4 1/2″ Stitched Rounded Rectangle out of it. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Rounded Rectangle out of the third piece of patterned paper. Ink the edges of both rectangles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Four. Now you’ll need the remaining two pieces of patterned paper. Die cut a 4 1/4″ Fitted Rounded Rectangle out of the fourth piece of patterned paper.

Step Twelve. Adhere the kraft cardstock special word to the black cardstock special word, making sure that you get a bit of shadowing. Adhere the kraft cardstock moments word to the black cardstock moments word, making sure that you get a bit of shadowing. Adhere the words overtop of the large butterfly flourish as desired.
Step Thirteen. To finish the wall hanging, punch two holes at the top. Tie a piece of white twine through both holes to create the wall hanging.

Hello Samantha here! Welcome! I couldn’t resist creating this card with the new release Farm series. This cow is so adorable and I’ve paired it up with and unexpected die to create this hillside card background.
Step 1: Use green cardstock and pattern paper to die cut the bottom half of the Entwined egg die.
Step 2: Combine the two die cuts together and adhere to a light blue card base (measurements: 10.5cm x 14.5cm). Trim any excess.
Step 3: (Optional) Add machine stitched details.
Step 4: Die cut the cow die and adhere the pieces together loosely. Use a blending tool (or cotton bud) to apply pink ink to the cows cheeks as shown below.
Step 5: Adhere the assembled cow to the card front. Adhere googly eyes to the cow.
Step 6: Die cut the clouds (using the Tree die). Adhere the clouds to the card front using foam tape.
Step 7: Stamp the sentiment onto light blue card, trim, and adhere to the card front.
Step 8: Die cut the flowers from the Entwined Egg die, adhere them to the card front. Embellish the card front with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere the card front to an A6 card base.
I had a lot of difficulty choosing between the cow and the sheep for this card. Either would work… I just really like how I was able to re use the Entwined Egg die (clearly used for Easter/Spring themed cards) and create this hill side background. Wonder what other dies on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website could also create a fun, yet different unintended background?
Hello every one! Today I make a slimline card with a cute little glitter princess. The Silk Microfine Glitter is a product that I used a lote in my creation, so also with this one.
At first is cut out a slimline card. One large and one a bite smaller. In the smaller one I made 3 squares. Used the 1698 stitched indented squares. On the picture I show on what sizes I cute out the squares. Hight of the card 20.5 cm. Each square is 4.5 cm. On the top and bottom 2 cm and between the 3 sqaures 1.5 cm. On the side of the sqaures 2 cm.
When you cute out the squares it look like this:
After that I made 3 blocks whit foam tape on the large slimline. The foam tape must fit behind the squares from the second slimline. In the blocks I put some sequin mix from 28 Lilac Lane. One the top of the blocks made a transparent sheet. So than you have 3 blocks whit shaker material. of course I choose purple and pink because I love that colors.
The second slimline I sprayed with distress oxide (kitsch flamingo, blueprint sketch). Sprayes from a little distrance. Than you have only splashes and not the hole background in the color.
After that you can glue the second slimline on top of the first. I used clear double sided adhesive. Because this is very strong on the trasparent sheet.
On top of the card a made a cute little princess with die 1790 (princess) and some details with 1798 (princess crown). The dress of the pricess used silk microfine glitter 656 Speckled Indigo. Love that color of course it is pink and purple. The details (crown, stars, letters) also used silk micofine glitter (619 fuchsia, 638 solar gold). The rest of the princess I colorize with distress ink ( blueprint sketch, picked raspberry, black soot, vintage photo, tattered rose). Details on the princess made with craft drops (cdm01 – metallic gold)
I put the princess in the middle of the slimline card. Under her feets the curl from the 1798 princess crown set. The rest of the details you can put them where you like them. In the coners of the card I made some pearls whit the craft drops.
I hope I inspire you to make a creation by yourself whit a lot of glitter and color!

Hello friends, it’s Sandy Diller and I’m here to share an easel card that is packed full of fun and cuteness. This farm collection from Joset is just adorable and making these cute little critters is addictive.
This is fun and easy so let’s get started.
Since this is an easel card and I wanted it to be tall – I began with cardstock that was 12″ X 5″ then scored as shown above. To extend the bottom of the card and add some weight I added a panel that was 5″ X 7″.
I love making these adorable animals and have a few on hand. I used the Sheep, Cow, Donkey, Hen & Rooster and Pig on this card. The Cow and Donkey are sitting down on this card so I used the die shown with the arrow to achieve this look.
Since my animals are all piled up, I made the Barn taller by placing the cutting pad above the arrow as shown with the white line and leaving some extra paper on the bottom. After the barn was complete, it was glued along with the animals on a 5″ X 7″ white panel and then added to the easel card.
The hay panel was placed at the bottom edge of the card and folded just 1/2″ inch at the top to make the front panel stand up. Some altered hay stacks were added to the top edge. I used the Life is Better On The Farm stamp set to stamp the greeting and some extra chickens, you can never have too many chickens.
