Sending Hugs & Kisses Mini Slimline Card

March 8, 2022

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I have a card to share using the new Daffodils Dies. I made this card about 2 months ago and thought a sky background with the yellow Daffodils would pop them. Little did I know then what these 2 colors together represented. It saddens me deeply with what is happening in Ukraine. I am sending prayers for all of Ukraine along with the rest of the World. Be strong and Be Safe!

Below is the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7” x 6”, score at 3 1/2” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Diecut Fitted Oval using a Masking Sheet. Place the negative to the card front. Apply Ink of your choice using a Blender Brush in Hues of Blue starting with the lightest in the center and working out to darkest. The inks I used are water reactive so I splashed some water using a fan brush. You can skip this step. Remove the mask and let dry.

Step 3 – Diecut Daffodils using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Keep the pieces together and color in each piece using any color medium of your choice. I used Copics. See photos below so the colors I used. Assemble and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 4 – Diecut Sentiments 2 – Just Because (sending) using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Keep diecut inside and Stamp the coordinating sentiment (sending) using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 5 – Stamp Bear Hugs sentiment using Versamark on Black Cardstock. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a Heat Tool. Trim and adhere to card using Foam Tape.

This card can be used for many occasions by simply changing the sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Koala Sentiment Background

July 8, 2021

Hey Friends! It’s EK, and today I am creating a card featuring not only Joset’s sweet Koala die set but most of the sentiment stamps from the Bear Hugs stamp set. There are so many wonderful sentiments on this stamp set it is difficult to pick just one, so instead I created a background using them all.

Step One: In a stamping platform line up in a pattern the sentiments from the Bear Hugs sentiment stamp set into a block. Using a light blue ink, stamp the pattern onto some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two: Slide the cardstock over and stamp the pattern again onto a clean section of paper.

Step Three: Slide the cardstock down, letting it hang out of the stamping platform, and stamp the pattern.

Step Four: Repeat step two and three until the whole piece of paper is inked.

Step Five: Die cut the cardstock using the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set.

Step Six: Using the same ink you stamped with, blend it around the edges of an A2 card frame.

Step Seven: Adhere the die cut sentiment cardstock to the card frame using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step Eight: Using 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock, die cut the piece of the Koala die set.

Step Nine: Color the die cut piece with alcohol markers. I used my copics.

Step Ten: Using a liquid adhesive, assemble the Koala die set.

Step Eleven: Adhere the the Koala to the card frame, centering him onto of all the sentiments.

I hope you find my project as absolutely cute as I do. It was really fun to make, and I can’t wait to create a new one with a different sentiment stamp set.

Which stamp set would yo use to create your own sentiment background? Let us know in the comments. Until then, happy crafting.

Mini Slimline Sending You A Bear Hug Card

February 15, 2021

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Even though Valentine’s is over I wanted to keep with the love theme. You don’t need Valentine’s to send a card to your loved one. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7” x 6”, score at 3 1/2” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Create a stencil by Diecutting the Leaf Pattern Background using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Place it on top of a Cardstock trimmed to 3 1/2” x 6”. Using an ink tool apply ink over the stencil. I used a blending brush with Distress Oxide Ink in Peeled Paint. I went darker in the center and softer around the edges.

Step 3 – Diecut Koala using Kraft Cardstock for the tree trunk, Green Cardstock for the leaves, Grey Cardstock for the Koala, Pink Cardstock for the inner ears, Black Cardstock for the eyes and nose. Add some shading to the tree trunk using Distress Oxide Walnut Stain. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue. Adhere to the card using Foam Tape. Using a permanent fine tip marker add the lines for the mouth.

Step 4 – Diecut Elephant using Red and Pink Cardstock for the hearts. Adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 5 – Stamp Bear Hug sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

This sweet card can be sent to anyone to let them know you sent them a hug. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Life’s a Beach

July 14, 2020

Hi there,

it’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this summer tag/bookmark with the small image stamps from several sentiment sets:

Step 1: Die Cutting and Background Stamping

  • die cut a tag from smooth white cardstock and if you like another tag from patterned paper that you can use in the back using the smaller tag die from the Planner Essentials 26 set
  • stamp the little heart from the Bear Hugs Sentiments, the shells and the starfish from the Splish Splash Sentiments and the sun and sunglasses from the Beach Sentiments set with Versafine Clair Morning Mist to create a background pattern on your tag

Step 2: Sentiment and little Accent

  • stamp the palm trees from the Beach Sentiments Set wit Versafine Clair Morning Mist
  • stamp the sentiment from the same set with Versafine Clair Nocturne onto a piece of torn vellum and heat-emboss it with clear embossing powder
  • wrap the vellum around the tag and secure it with washi tape and the patterned paper packing you die cut earlier

Step 3: Finishing Touches

  • color the image with Derwent Artists pencils and adhere it above the sentiment strip
  • thread three strands of twine through the hole of the tag

I hope you got inspired.

Hugs,
