Set of mixed media cards

August 4, 2021

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again with another guest design team card project share. Today I´m stopping by to share a set of mixed media cards with plenty of white space on them – and colour. I love adding stenciling, droplets and a fun mixed media twist to cards and I´d tought I´d share one of those ideas today with you. Hope you like it!

And here is how created the cards:

Step 1: Take a small gelli plate and apply three colours of alcohol ink onto it. Then take a plain brayer and roll the colour onto the gelli plate to create a faded three-tone-look. After that take a mark making tool of some kind – I used a dotted and a striped brayer – and press it/roll it over the inked layer to create a pattern. Let dry a bit.

Step 2: Next apply a thin layer of white paint over the inked pattern and then place the pattern color down onto the paper and press down to paper with your hands. Then remove the gelli plate and you have a nice pattern to use for your cards. Repeat several times with various colours and mark making tools (you can use stamps, combs, printing tools or even items from your kitchen). Whatever you find suits your project. Next die cut the created patterns into circles using the Fitted Circles die cut die and your die cutting machine.

Step 3: Next grab the Make Your Mark stencil and create patterns to white card backgrounds using the stencil with Distress Oxide tones and an ink blending tool/brush. On some I used just one colour and pattern and on other backgrounds I added two ink tones and the same pattern vertically and horizontally. You can do whatever you find attractive for your project.

Step 4: Now apply a Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut the leaves for each card using the Sidekick Essentials 7 die set. After that stamp sentiments using embossing ink and the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set onto black cardstock. Then add white embossing powder onto the stamped areas, dabb the residue off and heat set with a heat tool. Now adhere the leaves onto the card base. I arranged them around the circle piece to create a cluster, because I like it that way. It leaves plenty of white space to the card still.

Then adhere the circle using 3D foam adhesive pads. This creates a bit more texture and interest to the card. After that grab some water colours (I used black on my cards) and add droplets with the water colour to the cards. Let the droplets dry properly and then finish the card off by adding the embossed sentiment on top of the circle piece and if you want, add a few buttons for additional decor. I adhered the buttons with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape to the card. For additional decor you can also add some Craft Drops to the cards in various colours in the very end. Make sure you let the drops dry properly, before mailing your cards, otherwise they might smear.

Here are the finished cards:

When creating cards like this, I like to use the same basic idea, but do slight variations. That way every card is still unique, but since I already have all the tools out, I get more cards done at once. You never know when you need one!

I hope you enjoyed this idea and give it a try yourself. You can also replace the alcohol inks with paint, if you don´t happen to own any. Also if you don´t own a gelli plate (or you are not that much of a mixed media person), replace this step by just die cutting a fun patterned paper for the circle piece.

See you again next month with another card tutorial. Wishing you all a fabulous August!!
xxx, Sanna

Oh Happy Day! Card

July 26, 2021

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Oh Happy Day! Card.

To create my card, I’ve mixed new and older dies from the Paper Flower Collection as well as dies from Joset Designs and stamps from the Planner Essentials Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my card at home.

Step One. Choose a piece of nature inspired patterned paper and die cut a 4″ Stitched Indented Rectangle. Die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Indented Rectangle out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Distress the edges of both pieces. Ink the edges of both pieces using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut a 3 3/4″ Fitted Indented Rectangle out of a piece of book page. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. From the Pizza Box Die, you’ll need the large plain circle and the nesting stitched circle. Die cut the large plain circle out of a piece of book page. Die cut the stitched circle out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. From the Planner Essentials – Pieces of Life 4 – Retro Stamp Set, you’ll need the Oh Happy Day! sentiment. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the sentiment and stamp in the middle of the stitched circle. Distress the edges of both circles. Ink the edges of both circles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. Die cut the Lacy Leaves twice out of a piece of Rose Gold Foil Paper.

Step Five. Next, you’ll need the Florals 11 die. Die cut the leaves three times out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the flower centres three times out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. You’ll need a total of two small centres and three medium centres. Die cut the large flower three times, the medium flower five times and the small flower five times out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of all three leaves. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Dried Marigold Distress Ink over the entire surface of all the flowers. Shape the leaves and flowers as desired.

Step Six. Adhere the 3 3/4″ rectangle to the 4″ rectangle. Foam square the 3 1/2″ rectangle to the 3 3/4″ rectangle.

Step Seven. Adhere the stitched circle to the plain circle. Foam square the plain circle 1/2″ from the left and 1″ from the top of the 3 1/2″ rectangle.

Step Eight. Adhere the flowers together. You will have a total of three – three layered flowers and two – two layered flowers. Make sure to adhere a centre in each flower.

Step Nine. Adhere a lacy leaf and plain green leaf in the top left side of the circle as desired. Adhere the two – two layered flowers in the top left side of the circle, making sure they look like they are apart of the leaves.

Step Ten. Adhere the remaining lacy leaf to the bottom right side of the circle as desired. Adhere a green leaf in the bottom left side of the circle and top right side of the circle. Adhere the remaining three – three layered flowers in the bottom right side of the circle, making sure they look like they are apart of the leaves.

Step Eleven. Cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4″ x 10 1/2″, score at 5 1/4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Oh Happy Day! Card at home.

Have a Magical Day

July 25, 2021

Welcome! Samantha here sharing a fairy magical card! I originally had plans to join in the Christmas in July fun and create a Christmas themed card using the Snow Globe die. Instead I used many Elizabeth Craft Design dies to create a magical background for fairies!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Die cut the snow globe as shown below. Adhere globe pieces to a light grey card base.

Step 2: Use Adventure Edges and Adventure Edges 2 to create a grassy scene using green pattern paper and cardstock.

Step 3: Continue, to create a background scene. Die cut the sun, clouds and mushroom from Once Upon a Time Accessories

Step 4: Using a variety of colours, die cut Fairy 1. Assemble the pieces together and put the Fairy aside.

Step 5: 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 (silver). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Use this to die cut the wings.

Step 6: Die cut the frame of the snow globe, using foam tape, adhere this on top of the first frame.

Step 7: Stamp the sentiment on to Kraft card, and adhere this to the card front.

Step 8: Die cut the flowers from Adventure Edges 2, adhere these to the card front. Embellish card front with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere the fairy to the card front.

Today’s card is a great way of repurposing Christmas dies – I think If you were to go through your Elizabeth Craft Designs die collection there would be so many other card themes available, that pair up nicely with the Snow Globe die.

Happy Crafting!

Samantha

White Washed Crafting

July 24, 2021

Hey Friends! It’s EK, and today I am creating a little bit of a festive card using a Christmas die from designer Suzanne Cannon that really could be used year round. However, I am also using one of my favorite crafting techniques leaving the project all white for a touch of crisp elegance. I just love how ECD’s Soft Finish Cardstock makes this technique so flawless.

Step One: Die cut two frames from 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Use the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set for the large frame, and two of the Stitched Indented Square dies for the smaller frame.

Step Two: Using more 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock, die cut a third frame and the sentiment from the Love Joy & Peace Christmas Ornament die set.

Step Three: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the large rectangle frame to an A2 card frame.

Step Four: Using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the square frame to the card on a diagonal. Trim off excess.

Step Five: Using a liquid adhesive such as Kid Choice Glue, adhere both the ornament frame and the sentiment to the center of the card.

Step Six: Adhere a few white and iridescent sequins to the card frame for more visual interest.

Step Seven: Finish off the project with a few dollops of both Transparent Crystal and White Craft Drops.

I hope you enjoyed this super simply yet elegant project.

Joset Designs Soft Finish Cardstock

In the forest

July 21, 2021

Hii everyone, It’s Lisanne here again with a new blogpost. Today I want to give you an another idea with the Mason Jar. I just can’t stop playing with this dies.

So for the people who know me a little bit, I really love to work with the dies from Joset. That is what I also did this time. I used the Mushroom Fold Card and the Raccoon. This planner page shows you that you can make a beautiful planner page with not that much dies.

So let’s start with the beginning. I cut the Mason Jar out of Kraft Cardstock with the window peace in there. I also cut out one piece without window. I made the whole page (the part without window) a little bit darker with some Distress Ink.

For the next step I need the Raccoon. I guess this is a new favourite animal for me. He is made with the Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink. And only with two colours Distress Ink (Black Soot and Hickory Smoke).

The mushroom is the next part for this page. I made the whole mushroom but I knew I didn’t use the whole mushroom. This mushroom is made for a card, but I use the half of the mushroom. I aslo give this house a door and window. I used a lot of different colours for this cute house, but of course you can use any colour you want.

Then the trees which are in the Mason Jar Kit. I made three big trees and three smaller trees. Just by colouring the trees light and darker you can make depth in your card. The dark trees are coloured with Distress Ink Forest Moss and Black Soot. The lighter trees are made with Peeled Paint and Forest Moss.

Now it’s time to build up the page. First I adhere the mushroom at the page with window and cut of the mushroom outside the page. Now I can also see where I want to adhere the trees and glued this down. And of course the Raccoon stands for the mushroom.

At least I adhere some reinforcements and the lid with an extra piece on the lid. I’m very happy with this page. You can do this with a lot of dies by using some parts.

Hopefully I gave you some inspiration with the Mason Jar, the mushroom and Raccoon. Thankyou so much for watching and reading!

Kind regards Lisanne

Masculine graduation cards

July 7, 2021

Hello there everyone, it’s Sanna Lippert here again with another guest design team project. For today’s cards 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

Splish Splash

June 23, 2021

Hii all! It’s Lisanne here. It is time for a new blogpost from me. So the weather here in the Netherlands getting better and better. The Under the Sea Collection is perfect to use at this time of the year. I really like this Collection in combination with the square TN.

For this pages I used the Poloroid page and the beautiful Rainbow of Happiness paper. I used the paper with the blues and green colours. So let’s start with the Octopus page, doesn’t he look cute?

The Puzzle Page is a dies set with a lot of dies. I used the biggest frame and the splash. I used a thin denim sheet, that looks perfect with the Rainbow of Happiness paper. I used the frame without the splash with the Octopus.

The octopus is coloured with Distress Ink, some high lights with the a gell pen and glossy accents at his eyes. The eyes look rounder. But be carefully with these accents, they have to dry a little time.

I adhere some coral from the Summer Journal Kit in different colours to the page. Love all these colour explosion. The little fish at the right is also from the Summer Journal kit. At least I make a life buoy, which is a dies from the Whale, and stamped the text Splish Splash.

The second page is with the sea Turtle. He is so adorable. I told you that I made a splash from a denim sheet. The part who felt out is glued at the Turtle page. But only half of the splash, the other half is at the back. I also glued some waves from the Summer Journal kit at this page. I didn’t know if you see this that good, but for now it looks good haha.

I build up the Sea Turtle with ofcourse Distress Ink. Only the Turtle wasn’t enough for me. So at this page I made coral to but now with different colours. In combination with the other page, it looks beautiful!

I also made some accessories from the diving accessories. But I think they are laying a very long time at the bottom of the sea. They turning a little bit green haha.

I think I’ve told you everything about these two TN pages. I’ve had a lot of fun making these pages with all these beautiful colours.

Thankyou so much for reading! And hopefully I see you soon!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink
