Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again today with another guest design team project share. For my September project I created a fun and a super fast to make card. This card can be finished in under ten minutes.
Here is how to make the card:
Step 1: Take a green plain or polka dotted paper and attach Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back. Now take the legs from the Frog die and die cut 11 paires (for this card size) of legs. The adhesive on the back makes the adhering process very fast. Step 2: Arrange the legs onto a ivory toned card base in rows of threes. Step 3: Remove the adhesive backing and adhere the legs on place. Step 4: Take a Dymo and type on black tape the sentence “break a leg”. Adhere on the card. Step 5: Decorate with black liquid pearls, let dry and the card is done.
I´ve also recorded a short video to show you how fast such a card can be done. I hope you like the idea!!
See you again with another card project idea next month. Until then, Happy crafting, xxx, Sanna

Hello and happy Thursday! It´s Sanna Lippert here again with my August guest design team project share. This time I´m sharing a very clean and simple and easy to do card that works great for a male recipient.
This is how I created the card: Step 1: Pick two sheets of patterned paper of your choice that work well together. Cut the darker patterned paper into a slightly smaller rectangle than your card base, then die cut with a smaller Fitted Oval die a hole in the middle. Step 2: Now take the lighter patterned paper and die cut another piece with the next size (slightly bigger) of the Fitted Oval die. Step 3: Then die cut the Lighthouse and the birds from black Soft Finish Cardstock. After that die cut the additional Lighthouse pieces from white Soft Finish Cardstock. Before die cutting, attach Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto the cardstock. This way it will be easier to adhere the small pieces on place.
Step 4: Adhere the bigger oval piece onto the card base and assembly the Lightouse from the white and black pieces. Step 5: Adhere the finished Lighthouse on top of the oval piece. Now adhere the birds on place. Step 6: Take a residue piece of the lighter patterned paper and stamp the sentiment with black stamp ink onto it. I used Build Your Own Sentiment 1 stamp set for this purpose. Step 7: Cut the sentiment into a banner either using scissors or the Banners die cut die. Adhere on place.
I´ve again recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch. I hope it gives you an even better idea of each and every step.
I hope you get inspired to play and create a fun, masculine card yourself! See you next month with yet another project.
Take care! Sanna

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

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again today with another guest design team post and video. For today´s post I´ve created a wedding card in green, red and white. I wanted to play with very traditional colours to create these mixed media cards.
Here is how to make these cards:
Step 1: Take a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and fold it into a card size of your choice. Then take the Make Your Mark stencil and place it on top of the white surface and apply modeling paste thru the stencil onto the background. I like to create an irregular pattern instead of filling the whole background. I find that more interesting to the eye. Step 2: Now take watercolour/mixed media paper and stamp with Flower Power stamps and embossing ink onto that piece. Then pour fine white embossing powder on top of heat set if with a heat tool. While you are at it, make a bigger set of flowers! Step 3: Now take watercolours (or use watercolour pencils, markers or Distress Inks or any coloring media you like to use) and color the flowers in red tones. Step 4: After you are done coloring the flowers, paint a piece of white cardstock with light green watercolor tone and die cut leaves using the Trio of Leaves dies.
Step 5: Arrange the leaves and flowers onto the card base and adhere on place. I adhered the flower with 3D foam to get some additional texture, the leaves are adhered with liquid glue, but you could also use Clear Double Sided Adhesive (add to paper before die cutting!). Step 6: Now take a strip of Soft Finish Cardstock and stamp a sentiment with black ink onto it. I used the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 set here. Adhere on place with 3D foam. Step 7: If you prefer, you can add some green or red splatters onto the background with a watercolor brush, just make sure you protect the rest of the card with a paper towel.
I really like how this card turned out. I matted the card onto a light green cardstock in the end to get some additional contrast to the card. But this is totally optional – you could also work with a solely white card base.
While I created this card, I did several flowers and die cut a bunch of leaves, so I could make a batsch of cards at once. I used the same technique, but did cards in just a slightly smaller size. Here they are:
For a better idea I´ve again recorded a video for you to watch. Hope you enjoy it!!
I hope you enjoyed this month´s tutorial. See you again next month with another card idea. By the way, I´ve used a watercolour set from my own stash for the cards, but give the new watercolours at the store a try – they have such great colours in the set! Plus, note that the leaves I used are not available at the store, so I replaced them with a really nice leaf set in the supply list.
Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again today with my May guest design team card tutorial. I needed two retiment cards for colleagues and wanted to use Elizabeth Craft Designs dies for creating them, because they have several that are just perfect for this occasion.
Here are the steps, on how to create this card:
Step 1: Take a white card base and die cut piece of additional carstock with Adventure Edges to create a DIY stencil. Then using the self-made stencil, apply yellow Distress Ink onto the background to create a cloud pattern. Step 2: Die cut the waves and the palm tree scenery from white Soft Finish Cardstock using the Palm Trees and Ocean Edges die cut dies. Step 3: Ink the various pieces with blue, yellow, green and brown Distress Ink tones.
Step 4: Adhere the inked pieces onto the card, starting with the waves. Use Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape for the bigger parts and Kids Choice Glue for the smaller pieces. Also, the tweezers are very helpful, when adhering (or inking) tiny pieces on place. Step 5: Now add a stamped sentiment and sun onto the card. For this card I used the Beach Sentiments (the sun) and the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 clear stamp sets. Step 6 (optional): Add some white splatterns onto the waves using white acrylic paint or like I did, pigment sticks and water.
I also created a second card using the exactly same steps, but instead of using the island, I used a sailboat die cut die. Sadly, this die cut die is discontinued, but I added links to altenative products into the supply list that would work on a retirement card as well.
I did the exact same steps, like on the first card, but instead of using the Build Your Own Sentiment 1 stamp set I replaced it with Ahoy Sentiments, because it better suited the boat theme. I hope you don´t mind me using a discontinued die cut die on this card? I tried to find you nice alternatives from the store and also did! You could use the Sailor´s Life stamp and die sets to create a fun sailboat image for this card or replace the boat with a hot air balloon – also listed in the supply list. Both these products would fit the theme of retirement and new adventures very well.
Like always, I´ve again recorded a star-to-finish video for you to watch. I hope you like it!
See you soon with another fun project share! Happy crafting! xxx, Sanna

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again today with another guest design team project share. I have a friend who loves pink and glitter and it´s soon her birthday, so I wanted to make sure her birthday card would be perfect for her. Elizabeht Craft Desings has the prefect products for this project!
Here is how I created this card:
Step 1: Cut a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock in right size and apply Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto this piece. Step 2: Die cut your own DIY stencil with Abstrack Background die cut die (or use a residue piece of the adhesive sheet from a previous project, like I did). Step 3: Apply Saffron and Pink Peony Silk Microfine Glitter thru the “stencil” onto the background. Start with Saffron and finish with Pink Peony. Step 4: Die cut a hole with Fitted Ovals die cut dies onto the background. Save the residue piece for an Easter Card.
Step 5: Die cut another DIY stencil using the Adventure Edges die cut die. Then apply yellow ink (to create a cloudy sky onto the card base) onto the background. Step 6: Die cut the Parrot from white Soft Finish Cardstock (apply Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto the back before die cutting). Ink all Parrot pieces in pink and orange Distress Ink tones. Build and adhere the Parrot into the oval area of the card. Step 7: Stamp a birthday sentiment with Build Your Own Sentiment stamp set and black stamp ink. Step 8: Add pearls to the card for additional decor (optional).
I´ve also again recorded a start-to-finish step-by-step tutorial for you to watch. I hope you enjoy it and get inspired to create fun glitter cards yourself!
Wishing you a happy, crafty day and see you again next month with another fun tutorial.
