Hi everyone! Today Irina here with a new blog. I love making CAS cards and that is also what I’m going to show today in this blog. I used traditional Christmas colors. Hope you like it!
Start with a piece of white cardstock from 4.5 x 5.5 inch.
Now diecut the different branches and leaves. I used: 6 pieces from set 1846 (Leaves and Branches) and 6 pieces from set 1873 (Florals 12). I also diecut 6 of the little flowers from set 1873 (Florals 12).
Color them with green and red.
Start by positioning the leaves but don’t glue them yet:
Now you can position the following leaves:
Now you can glue the leaves to your base. Just put some glue on the lower part of the leaves.
Now it’s time to stamp your sentiment in the middle of the wreath. I used stampsset CS276.
After this you can glue your flowers on the wreath.
Last step: piece of green cardstock from 4 3/4 x 5 3/4 inch. Glue your card on top of the green cardstock and your card is finished.
Good Morning Creative Friends, it is Karan Gerber here to share a project with you today. This time i am sharing a card with you using one of my most favorite Floral dies, Florals 6.
I have put together a card using florals 6, the beautiful leaves from Planner Essentials 55 and Stitched Rectangles. I cut 3 of each of the flowers small medium and large so i could get a very full flower At this point i wasnt sure just how many i would use to create my flowers, on this card, my favorite, is a peony.
To achieve the look on the florals, i used distress sprays and patina alcohol ink. I first colored parts of the florals with peacock feather distress ink. and used peeled paint distress ink on the leaves. I also added some snow paste on them to add some texture.
I used Dragons eye Spark paint from prima on the leaves form the planner essentials set.
I hope you like my project share today. Have you tried creating flowers with florals 6 lately? Until next time, Happy Scrapping!
Hello everyone! Today Irina here to share a blogpost with you. For this post I was inspired by the colors from a picture I saw on the internet. It’s a clean card with a lot of white. Have you already started making Christmas Cards? I do and I love making them. Let’s start my card tutorial.
Take a piece of white cardstock from 8 x 4 3/4 inch and emboss this with a Elizabeth Craft Designs stencil. I used one of the Planner Essentials Stencils 1.
Take another piece of white cardstock from 8 x 2 inch, a blue and a craft piece from 8 x 0,5 inch.
Glue them together as in the picture. ( on the picture you see te back):
Turn your piece and stamp your sentiment on it. I used X-mas from the stampset CS275.
Glue this part at the bottom of your embossing part.
Diecut and shape your flowers and branches.
Glue them on your card base.
Add a small piece of blue and white cardstock on the left side of the card. Now your card is finished.
I hope you like it. Thank you so much for reading and watching my blogpost. See you next time. Have a great day!
Hi Everyone, Thank you for joining me today to make this super fun interactive Christmas Card using Joset’s Santa’s Sleigh and florals #12. So grab a coffee sit back and lets get started.
Step 1: Take your colored cardstock and cut it @ 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score along the 8 1/2″ side @ 2 1/8″ and 5 1/2″, cut your card front 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ and set aside.
Step 2: fold up your score lines and add glue as per the picture above and attached your card front, you will want to line the card along the bottom, as per picture below.
Step 3: With your choice of cardstock cut out your sleigh, with silver card stock cut out your sleigh runners. I took a light sanding block and lightly sanded the runners and then inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink. Next I cut out a few flower petals from florals #12 from a coordinating designer paper and created my poinsettia style flower. Next I added green leaves and cut out 2 gold stems from Winter Greens.
Step 4: With the Classic Christmas sentiments set, stamp Be Merry and Season’s Greetings with embossing ink and emboss with gold detailed embossing powder and heat set.
Step 5: Out of White Cardstock cut 3 3/4 x 5 and run it through your choice of 3D embossing folder.
Step 6: Assemble your white dot background to your choice of designer paper and attached to your card base, next I attached my sleigh and Be Merry Quote. I pop dotted my florals #12 flower, leaves and gold branches. Once my card is assembled I speckled my card front cover with heavy body white paint and a metallic gold paint to give my card some shimmer.
Step 7: Attach your designer paper to the inside of your card and your Season’s Greetings quote and speckle the inside of your card with gold and white heavy body paint.
I hope you enjoyed my blog post today, if you have any questions about this technique please feel free to reach out to me via Facebook.
Hello friends and welcome back to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog. Today, I am sharing a a card using Florals 11 as my flowers for this gorgeous card.
Coloring the florals from the center out this time using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and setting stamens from Dress my Craft in the center.
I wanted to add some stamped leaves in there and used the Kindness Stamp and Die and stamped out some leaves and the dandelion looking image using peeled paint, die cut them and just left them white, what a great detail and layer they add to this card, don’t you think?
The stitched circle, i backed with acetate and cut the intricate die from The Book out twice, cutting off the outside edges and lining the two die cuts up to fill the circle which worked perfectly.
I decided i wanted even more detail and used the vine from the Strawberry set, colored with with Peeled paint Distress ink and i gave the tip a bit of shaping. Once i was all done, i decided to tone the color down a bit by using a bit of snow paste and white acrylic splatters.
Thank you for dropping by today, I hope i have inspired you to create some florals. Until Next Time, Happy Scrapping!
Hello everyone, Irina here with a flower project today! I started working with the awesome shadow box frames in combination with acetate, stencils and paper flowers. I think acetate is so great to use. Enjoy reading.
Start with the small shadow box frame. Trim them at 5 inch (or the size you prefer).
Glue them together.
Trim the acetate at 5 x 5 inch (or take the size of your frame)
Put some structure paste on the acetate with a stencil.
Glue the acetate behind your frame with tape.
Die cut some flowers and branches and color them. I have used distress ink.
Glue the paper flowers together.
Arrange them on the frame.
Maybe you want to add a sentiment. I didn’t add a sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Untill next time.
Hi, Marla here today, with a Christmas in July card. Can you believe we have already moved into July? Why not start the month out with a little Christmas inspiration? I know you’re what you’re thinking, “I can’t begin to think about that right now. I’m enjoying my summer.” We aren’t going to get frosty just yet. Let’s hit the hot house instead and build a Christmas floral bouquet. Here’s how my card was created.
1. Die cut your ECD “Flower Pot/Pail” from white cardstock and add ink. Add foam tape to the back.
2. Die cut two ECD “Berry Branches” from white cardstock and add ink. Then add wet glue to the top of each berry and add Prills. Set aside to dry.
3. Die cut the several of the smallest flower from ECD “Florals 14.” Add ink in desired color on both the front and back sides. Spritz with water and pinch the ends of each petal toward the center. Add Prills to the center with wet glue.
4. Die but two branches from white cardstock using ECD “Leaves 1.” Coat with Versmark Ink and add gold embossing powder, then heat set.
5. Die cut three pine branches, using white cardstock from ECD “Leaves & Branches” and add ink.
6. Add a 4.25 x 5.25 piece of patterned paper to an A2 top folding card base. Add decorative trim 2/3’s way down behind where flowerpot will be placed.
7. Adhere your flowerpot. Using the slit at the top begin to arrange the bouquet in the flowerpot.
8. Cut a small circle three times and glue together to create a chipboard circle. Stamp a holiday greeting in the center then add it to the center of your flowerpot. Tie a bow from thin ribbon and adhere to the top of your sentiment circle.
That completes my card for today. Thank you for joining me. Until next time…. Marla
