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!
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
Hi Everyone, It’s Tina here. Today I am sharing a card using the Cherry Blossom Branch and Parrot dies along with the Fitted and Stitched Rounded Rectangles die. Below is the steps to create your own Hugs & Kisses Card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)
Step 2 – Diecut Fitted Rounded Rectangles using Solid Patterned Paper. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 3 – Diecut Stitched Rounded Rectangles using a Leaf Patterned Paper. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 4 – Stamp Bear Hugs Sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink in the upper left corner.
Step 5 – Diecut Cherry Blossom Branch using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Colour in the pieces in any medium of your choice. I used inks with a blender brush. Assemble the Branch and adhere to card using Foam Tape. (Tip: Did you know the small Cherry Blossom die (new bud) can be used as a leaf) That is what I used behind the Cherry Blossoms.
Step 6 – Diecut Parrot using Coloured Cardstock. Assemble and adhere the parrot to the card. I used a wobble to have some dimension and movement to the parrot.
This card can be used for many occasions by simply changing the sentiment. Below you will find a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
