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.

Hello everyone, it’s Sanna Lippert here again today with another card idea to share. I always keep a box of cards for various occasions ready and constantly keep on adding cards to the collection –– you never know when you need a handmade card! The cards I share today will be an addition to that particular card box.
And here is how they were made:
Step 1: Take the Adventure Edges and die cut a piece of white cardstock with the cloud edge die. Now you have a DIY stencil ready to be used!
Step 2: Place the DIY stencil onto a piece of white cardstock and wipe blue stamp ink onto the background with an ink blending tool along the edge of the cloud pattern. Move a few centimeters down and create a second row of clouds. Repeat throughout the background.
Step 3: Die cut grass from green Soft Finish Cardstock with the grass edge die. Adhere on place overlapping the layers.
Step 4: Take a piece of ModaScrap patterned paper from Fly & Scrap paper pack and die cut balloons from it. Adhere on place.
Step 5: Apply Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto a piece of light blue Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut the balloon strings and bows from it. Adhere on place.
Step 6: Stamp a sentiment with Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set stamps and black stamp ink onto white Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut into a banner or use scissors for cutting. Adhere on place and the card is done.
For the option of creating glitter balloon cards, see the end of the start-to-finish video. Also the patterned paper balloon card steps are shown on this video.
I hope I could inspire you to create fun balloon cards and make several variations of them, while you are at it!
Wishing you all a great, crafty day! See you next month again!

Have a great weekend, crafters!
Hello friends! It’s Sandy Diller here with you today and I have a fun summer card that makes me think of warmer days ahead. I’m using dies from the latest release from Joset Designs along with the Safari Jeep, which is one of my favorites. I have lots of good stuff to show you, so let’s get started. (I also have a step-by-step video below!)
This card is a 5.5″ wide by 6″ tall card. It is an unusual size but it needed to be big enough to hold all the dies as well as fit in a 6″ X 6″ envelope. It is an easel card that folds flat for mailing.
Let’s start with our card base which is 12″ X 5.5″ and then scored at 6″ and then again at 8.75″ to create the easel.
In addition to the base, you will need a panel that is 5.5″ X 6″ for the front panel. I used White Soft Finish Cardstock for both of my panels.
On the smaller panel I created clouds by first making a template using the cloud die from the Adventure Edges. I keep this in the envelope with the die set so it is always handy.
By moving the template down and changing the angle each time you add ink it makes a lovely cloudy sky.
Using the Ocean Edges, I cut a panel of sand from manila cardstock and added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I then added the panel to the sky panel at the bottom.
Using the Sand Crab die set I cut and assembled my Crab. I used Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back of the mouth and eyes to create a sticker for easy assembly.
Using the Safari Jeep die set I cut and assembled the Jeep. I wanted my Jeep to look rusty so edged it with brown ink.
Next I added the “Crab” Driver
After cutting out what I needed from the Diving Accessories die set, they were colored and assembled into the Jeep with the Crab Driver.
Then everything was added to the panel with the sky and sand.
After cutting and inking a panel with a wave cut at the top(from the Ocean Edges die set), it was scored at 2.5″. The panel was then place on the inside of the card using foam tape.
The panel with the Jeep was then added to the front of the card lining up the bottom edges.
For the finishing touches, one of the shells was stamped with “Beach Bun” from the Splish Splash stamp set. More shells were added to the bottom of the card.

Thanks for joining me today and have fun, think summer!!
Hello everyone, it’s Sanna Lippert here again today with a set of “build-a-Hippo” baby cards. I adore this little die cut die so much –– it’s perfect for so many occasions, and practically made for creating baby cards! And while I was at it, I created a set of three. You never know when you’ll need one!
This is how I created the cards:
Step 1: First take a sheet of White Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut 3 sets of Hippos. And don’t forget to die cut the feet six times!! 🙂
Step 2: Next take a sheet of Soft Sky and Dusky cardstock and die cut two sets with the Stitched Rounded Rechtangle from the blue paper and one set from the lilac one.
Step 3: Take a white Soft Finish Cardstock sheet (or glitter cardstock) and die cut three sets with the Postage Stamp Rectangles die cut die.
Step 4: Ink the hippo pieces with grey and pink stamp ink, but leave the eyes and teeth white.
Step 5: Now cut blue and purple patterned paper into a card size from the polka-dotted “Thinking about Polinesia” paper. Adhere onto the card base.
Step 6: Attach a piece of ribbon in blue and pink onto the cards, then adhere the rechtangle pieces on place. Start with the postage stamp piece and adhere the rounded rectangle on top.
Step 7: Add a stamped sentiment using the Ahoy Sentiments or the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set and black stamp ink.
Step 8: Color the tiny eye pieces with a black marker and adhere in place.
To give you a better idea of each and every step, I’ve again recorded a video for your to watch. I hope you like it!
I hope I inspired you to play with your dies a little today and create a few cards yourself! I’ll be back with another project next month.
Until then, happy crafting!
