It’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this controlled shaker card with Joset’s adorable little monkey as the focal image.

Step 1: Die Cutting, Coloring and Assembly of the Focal Animal

  • cut out all the elements needed from the Monkey die set from white Soft Finish Cardstock
  • color the elements with Alcohol Markers and add extra shading with Distress Ink (Tea Dye, Ground Espresso) and a Mini Ink Blending Tool
  • add highlights with a white gel pen

Step 2: Create the Background

  • create a background on Yupo paper using Alcohol Inks (Moss, Everglades)
  • stamp some leaves from the Garden Flowers set onto that background with brown ink and heat-emboss them with clear embossing powder

Step 3: Create the Frame

  • cut out a frame from kraft cardstock using two dies from the Stitched Rectangles set
  • cut out the cloud and the grass borders using dies from the Adventure Edges set
  • add color with Distress Ink (Peeled Paint, Salty Ocean) and a Blending Brush

Step 4: Finishing the Shaker and Adding the Sentiment

  • thread some clear and green seed beads onto a green string

I hope you got inspired.

Have a Magical Day

April 27, 2020

Hello! Samantha here! Welcome!

I’ve wanted to create a card using this Dragon die for the longest time but could never figure out a background. Paper alone wasn’t going to give me the look I wanted so I brought out the ink pads and created my own colourful background!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Cut out a card front using white card stock measuring: 10.5cm x 14.5cm

Step 2: Using a blending tool, blend circular spots of purple ink onto the card front.

Step 3: Using a blending tool, blend circular spots of pink ink onto the card front.

Step 4: Using a blending tool, fill in the gaps, blending yellow ink onto the card front.

Step 5 : Using the star dies – from Elegant Christmas Tree die cut a stencil from a piece of scrap white card stock.

Step 6: Use this star stencil and a blending tool to apply white pigment ink onto the card base.

Step 7: Move the stencil around, and repeat step 6 until you are happy with the amount of stars on the card front.

Step 8: Using a variety of pink card stock die cut the clouds.

NOTE: These clouds are actually from the Elizabeth Craft Designs ‘tree’ die.

Step 9: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to light pink cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Diva). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Use this glitter card to die cut the wings, tail, and ears of the dragon.

Step 10: Die cut the remaining pieces of the Dragon – use a variety of shades in pink card stock.

Step 11: Assemble the dragon and adhere the pieces together. Adhere googly eyes to the dragon.

Step 12: Stamp the sentiment using embossing ink, apply white embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Adhere this to the card front.

Step 13: Adhere card base to an A6 card front. Embellish with sequins and a twine bow.

I loved playing around with this bokeh ink blending background technique – especially using die cut stars to create a stencil. Hopefully it inspires you to try this technique maybe even die cut your own stencil.

Happy Crafting !

Shell Yeah

April 9, 2020

IMG_9730Hey Everyone!  It’s EK, and today I decided to try something I have never tried before.  I decided to try colored pencils coloring on 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.  I was worried that the 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock‘s texture would create uneven coloring, but I am not going to lie, I am absolutely in love with how the texture adds to the overall coloring effect.

Join me as I create a underwater spring themed card using colored pencils.

IMG_9712Step One:  Die cut the pieces you need from the Octopus, Seashells and Spring Basket die sets using 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

IMG_9713Step Two:  Color the die cut pieces using your colored pencils.

IMG_9714Step Three:  Create a background for your colored die cuts.  I used Distress Oxides in Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass, and Shaded Lilac plus some shimmer spray on a trimmed piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.  Attach the background to an A2 card frame using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

IMG_9715Step Four:  Using a combination of 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, Kids Choice Glue, and 3 dimensional tape, assemble the basket full of sea shells and adhere to the card frame.  Adhere the die cut Octopus onto the card, letting his legs over lap the basket.

IMG_9731Step Five:  Stamp your sentiment onto the card frame using blue ink.  I used a combination of sentiments from both the Spring Sentiments stamp set and Splish Splash Sentiments stamp set.

IMG_9732Have you ever used colored pencils on ECD’s Soft Finish Cardstock?  Did you enjoy the results as much as I did?  Let us know in the comments below.  Until then, happy crafting.

Easter Craft Ideas

April 7, 2020

Hello everyone,

Easter is just around the corner so we wanted to give you some fun Easter project ideas today. Whether you want to create a special Easter page in your planner, make a card with our lovely Bunny or Spring Basket dies, or create a pretty Easter gift bag, we hope that the following projects created by our talented Design Team Members will give you some inspiration!

Our first project is this beautiful “hello sunshine!” card created by Sandy Diller who used the Spring Basket die set to decorate her card. For the bright background she used the Chevron Background die. Love this combination!

Next project is from Annette Green who made this fun Easter gift bag. She used the bunny head and carrot from the Bunny die set to decorate the tag and combined this with a beautiful rose flower from the Planner Essentials 6. Now time to start looking for some yummy easter eggs to fill this bag!

Marjolijn van Elsberg created a beautiful page for her planner using a combination of dies from the Planner Essentials line. Love the pretty chevron edge she created to her page. A great way to document special moments in your life.

Luciana Telesca used the Spring Basket and Bunny die sets to create this gorgeous soft colored card for Easter. For the word “Easter” she used the letters dies from the Blackboard Alphabet set. Love how she added the hat to the bunny.

Another great card using the Spring Basket and Bunny dies creates by Katelyn Grosart. Katelyn used soft pastel colors for her flowers and eggs that match perfect with the soft patterned background. Love the little bunny hiding in the basket.

Samantha Klaebe created this colorful card using the Little Chick die in combination with the grass boarder from the Tree die set. For the sentiment she used the “Happy hot chocolate season” stamp and removed the “hot” to create “Happy chocolate season”. How creative!

A beautiful elegant card from Tanja Kabel is up next. Tanja used the leftover parts of one of the eggs from the Elegant Easter Eggs Small die set and added some Metallic Gold Craft Drops for dimension. For the background, she used the Stitched Rectangles. A great idea for a quick and elegant Easter card.

Last but not least is this pretty card created by Karen Ostergard. Karen always knows how to combine elegant with cute! In this card she combines the elegant Mandala die with the cute Bunny. For the background she used the Stitched Rounded Rectangles.
