Happy Birthday Princess

August 23, 2020

Hello – Samantha here. Today I wanted to share with you what is perhaps one of the most pink card I’ve ever made!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Use pattern paper and cut out a card front. (Card Measurement: 10.5cm x 14.5cm) 

Add 5 machine stitched lines. Alternatively use a white pen to add line details.

Step 2: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to white cardstock. Die cut the crown outline as well as a few stars.

Step 3: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Silver). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 4: Use pink card to die cut the crown detailed die.

Step 5: Use light pink card to die cut the crown detail die.

Step 6: Assemble the crown as shown below. Use foam tape to adhere the light pink negative die cut details.

Step 7: Die cut extra stars using pink and silver card. Adhere the crown and stars as shown below.

Step 8: Stamp the sentiment onto pink card, trim, and adhere this to the card front using foam tape.

Step 9: Embellish the card with sequins, gems and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 side folding card base.

As you can see it’s like pink exploded onto my card. My 4 year old loves it. I hope you do to!

Happy Crafting!

A Way With Words Cardmaking Craft Drops Silk Microfine Glitter

Butterfly Wings

August 22, 2020

IMG_0873Hi Friends!  It’s EK, and I am popping in today to share a new card I crafted using some long neglected crafting supplies and A Way with Words Butterfly Flourish.  I just love how elegant the flourishes of this die set make creating something special so simple.

IMG_0859Step One:  On a crafting mat or glass, drop three similar liquid watercolors.  I used Dr. Ph Martins Hydrus (just unearthed from my moving boxes) in two shades of red and one dark pink.

IMG_0860Step Two:  Spray the liquid watercolor with plenty of water.

IMG_0861Step Three:  Dip a piece of Watercolor Paper into the liquid watercolor and completely saturated with color.  I was able to get three dips out of the puddle.

IMG_0862Step Four:  Heat set the watercolor paper.  Then spray with a iridescent watercolor spray.  I used Perfect Pearls Mists.

IMG_0863Step Five:  Die cut the watercolor paper using the Butterfly Flourish die set.  I used just the large flourish once and the small flourish twice for this step.

IMG_0864Step Six:  Add a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the watercolor paper.  Die cut the detailed butterfly from the Butterfly Flourish die set.

IMG_0865Step Seven:  Peel off the backing paper to the Clear Double Sided Adhesive and add Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to the detailed butterfly.

IMG_0866Step Eight:  On a second piece of watercolor paper, die cut a frame using both the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set and Fitted Indented Rectangle die set.

IMG_0867Step Nine:  Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the die cut frame to an A2 card frame.  Using a combination of 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive and Kids Choice Glue, add the flourished butterfly.  Using Kids Kids Choice Glue add the glittered butterfly to the flourished butterfly.

IMG_0869Step Ten:  Add a sentiment using the Love & Hearts Collection stamp set and two tones of ink.  I used both Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries Distress Oxide.

IMG_0870Step Eleven:  Adhere the two smaller butterfly flourishes.  Add three drops of Pearl Rose Craft Drops and three drops of Transparent Crystal Craft Drops.

IMG_0874I love how this is a surprising simple this card was to create but how elegant it looks.

IMG_0875Let us know in the comments below what A Way With Words dies you would use with your long neglected supplies.  Until then, happy crafting.

Glitter Princess

August 17, 2020

IMG_0835Hey friends!  It’s EK, and I am popping in today with an over the top glitter card for a little princess in my life.  Let’s be honest, when dealing with the little princess in your life, it really should be over the top, and the new Princess Crown die set is perfect for a little bit of over the top glitter.

IMG_0825Step One:  Place some Clear Double Sided Adhesive over a piece of trimmed 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.  Die cut the Princess Crown die set over the Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

IMG_0826Step Two:  Peel back the adhesive paper of the crown shape die cut and adhere the detailed crown die cut over into the center of it.  Add Lavender Ice Silk Microfine Glitter over the die cut crown shape.

IMG_0827Step Three:  Peel the adhesive paper back from the detailed crown die cut and add Imperial Garnet Silk Microfine Glitter over it.

IMG_0828Step Four:  Add Bright Cranberry Silk Microfine Glitter over the Princess die cut and the heart from the detailed crown die cut.

IMG_0829Step Five:  Add Copper Rose Silk Microfine Glitter over the stars and flair die cut piece.

IMG_0830Step Six:  Trim a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches.  Blend dark water soluble ink over the cardstock and spray it with sparkling spray.  I used Black Soot Distress Oxide and Perfect Pearls Spray.  Let Dry.

IMG_0831Step Seven:  Die cut the blended piece of cardstock with a large die from the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set.

IMG_0833Step Eight:  Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the die cut blended cardstock to an A2 card frame.    Then add the glitter crown on top of the blended cardstock.  Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the rest of the die cuts to the card frame.

IMG_0834Step Nine:  Using a stamping platform, stamp stars and a sentiment from the new Once Upon a Time Sentiments stamp set using white pigment ink.

IMG_0836I wish you could see exactly how sparkly this card is with all this glitter.  I just adore how the pinks and purples just pop with the black behind it.

IMG_0837Let us know in the comments below if you would craft with this much glitter for the little princess in your life.  Until then, happy crafting.

Happy Place

August 2, 2020

Does that ever happen to you? You start something and suddenly it becomes something completely different than you planned? 

Well, to me this happens on a regular basis. 

I started a page about week 2 of July but it became a page of my Happy Place. Well, actually a summary of week 2 because I spent all my free time in my Happy Place😉

I’m working on a big project and I can’t and won’t show anything about it until it’s complete. That’s the reason why there are no pictures added to this page yet.

For this page I used Esther’s patterned design paper, Reminiscence, I love it!!!

The left page is made of Soft Finish Cardstock and colored with Oxide Inks gathered twigs, faded jeans and iced spruce. I also added some ink on the patterned paper page so the two would match nicely together.

Between the pages I made a pocket, I’m in love with that die set! On the pocket I adhered the ECD logo and a piece of the banner that sat around the sidekick beach planner. It came with a very sweet note, real happy mail!!

I kept the note and the nice sticker in the pocket. 

For the pages I used various Sidekick and Planner Essentials and Art Journal stamps and dies.

I also used Silk Microfine Glitter to color some of my die cuts. I first cut the images out of cardstock backed with Clear Double Sided Tape and then sprinkled it with the glitter. This Silk Microfine Glitter, yellow & turquoise really doesn’t give off, I find that a very nice side effect. 

I’ve had a lot of fun creating this page again and hopefully I’ve inspired you a little bit.

See you next time! 😉

Purr-fect Day!

July 26, 2020

Hello and welcome! Samantha here with this purr-fect card featuring Elizabeth Craft Designs Cat die along with a few other fun items that work so well with this slim line card.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Use washi tape to secure a slim line white card front (Card Measurement: 10cm x 21cm) to the craft mat. Next, position the stencil over the white card (leaving 1/3 white space on the top). Secure the stencil down with washi tape.

Step 2: Use a blending tool to blend in a generous amount of light pink ink over the stencil, through to the white card.

Step 3: Reposition the stencil, secure and repeat ink blending until the whole card front is full.

Step 4: Repeat steps 1-3 using dark pink ink. Repeat again using light grey ink. Over lap the ink blending where possible.

Step 5: Use grey and light pink card to die cut the Cat image.

Step 6: Assemble and adhere the cat to the top right corner of the card front.

Step 7: Use pink card to die cut the Planner Labels tag die. Resize the tag by die-cutting the bottom section only.

Stamp the sentiment. Adhere to the card front as shown in main image.

Step 8: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to white cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Fuchsia). 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 small heart from the Planner Labels die.

Step 9: Continue to die cut the small heart section of the Planner Label die – use light pink and grey card.

Step 10: Embellish the card front with the hearts. Die cut the fish skeleton using white card. Adhere these to the card front. Embellish with sequins and a twine bow.

Hope you like todays card inspiration! Slim Cards are very in at the moment – simply by moving the stencil around you can create any sized card you wish!

Happy Crafting!

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

Pandatastic!

June 28, 2020

Hello and welcome! Samantha here – today I’m sharing a super cute card. I really wanted to make this Panda pop off my card, so I created a pink heart background to contrast with the black and white bear!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Use black and white card to die cut the Panda.

Step 2: Use washi tape, secure white card (Card Measurement: 10.5cm x 14.5cm) to the craft mat. Next, position the stencil over the white card, securing it down with washi tape.

Step 3: Use a blending tool to blend in a generous amount of pink ink over the stencil, through to the white card.

Reposition the stencil, secure and repeat ink blending until the whole card front is full of pink hearts.

Step 4: Die cut three hearts using pink card.

Step 5: Stamp the sentiment on pink card, adhere this and the three hearts to the card front.

Step 6: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Silver). 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 small hearts (Peek-a-Boo die set) .

Step 7: Assemble and adhere the Panda to the card front. Embellish with the small hearts and sequins. Adhere a twine bow to the card.

Step 8: Adhere the card front to an A6 card base.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my ‘pandastic’ tutorial today!

Happy Crafting!

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 !

A Way With Words Silk Microfine Glitter

Miss you card with Alcohol inks and Silk Microfine Glitter

April 11, 2020

Hi, there!  The good thing about having to clean out your craft room and then putting it all back in is that you are reminded of all the craft supplies that have been neglected.  I pulled out some alcohol inks today to make a clean and simple cards with the perfect word dies for times such as these.  Who wouldn’t be cheered by such a vibrant card?

So vibrant!

I started with some alcohol inks – Flamingo, Wild Plum, a touch of Purple Twilight and some Gold Mixative.  I just did a strip of it across the Yupo paper instead of covering the whole thing.  I tend to make a mess when I do that so going for a more controlled look here.

I trimmed it down to fit an A2 black card base and added a Miss You die cut in white across the bottom third of the card.  I pulled out the gold touches by adding a butterfly covered in Sand Dunes Microfine Glitter and added some clear beads from my stash.  I don’t remember who made them but you can get a similar effect using Crystal Effects.

Touches of the gold mixative

Such a quick and easy card – and so easy to change up using whatever alcohol inks suits your fancy. 

Thank you for looking and stay safe and healthy!
