Make A Wish!

March 23, 2020

Hello!!! Samantha here, sharing a fun, bright, birthday card. Maybe it is just me?…but I love that this card makes me think of candy –– a perfect card to gift to someone on their special day!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Apply clear double sided adhesive to the back of coloured cardstock and pattern paper.

Step 2: Select one of the reinforcement dies – die cut the die using the pattern paper and cardstock.

Step 3: Make a template of the die using scrap paper.

Step 4: Using re-positional tape adhere the template to a white card front measuring: 10.5cm x 14.5cm

Step 5: Remove the backing tape from the die cuts and adhere these in the negative space of the template.

Step 6: Continue to adhere each die cut, completing each row – alternate colours. Remove the template then re position below the finished row.

Step 7: Repeat steps 5 and 6 until the card front is full.

Step 8: Use the birthday sentiments stamp and coordinating die to stamp the sentiment on pink cardstock using black ink. Adhere the sentiment to the card front.

Step 9: Embellish card front with a twine bow and sequins.

Small dies are probably one of my favourite craft items to play with – the best thing about these reinforcement dies is how much time I saved die-cutting rows of circles instead of individual circles. So…I had time to make a few more examples!

Hope you enjoyed my card tutorial today.

Happy Crafting!

Personalized Kid’s Birthday Card

March 14, 2020

Diana here! I made this card for a special little 5 year old boy at his birthday. His favorite color is blue and he and his siblings have been asking for a puppy so I thought I would help out! Lol!

Kids love it when their name is on there!

I started with a 5″x7″ white card base. From there, I started with a vivid blue background sized 4.5″ x 6.5″. I found a lighter blue card stock and cut out the Big Balloon with it – sponging the edges with blue ink just a bit to make the balloon not so flat.

I covered a sheet with Silver Sands Silk Microfine Glitter and from that, cut the Happy Birthday 3. I initially planned for it to go on the balloon by itself but it didn’t stand out as I had hoped so I added a black layer on top. I love the peak of silver behind it. I also added Daniel’s name using the Retro Alphabet Trio set using the smallest of the alphabet dies.

I couldn’t help but add the puppy to the front and used twine to give the impression he was holding the balloon with his mouth. The little G is stands for Daniel’s last name –– major hinting there.

Thank you so much for looking!

Create The Things – Spotlight Stamping Technique

March 10, 2020

Hey Friends! It’s EK and today I am creating a card featuring some spotlight stamping using Charlene’s Make a Wish stamp set. All of Charlene’s stamp set designs were just meant to be colored and the spotlight stamping technique is just perfect for these large images.

Step One: Trim a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches. Using some water resistant black ink stamp the sentiment onto the cardstock. Using the large feather from the Make a Wish stamp set, stamp the feather image around the card.

Step Two: Using the coordinating smaller feather, stamp the image into the blank spaces between the large image.

Step Three: Die cut the stamped image using the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set twice.

Step Four: Die cut some Rust Soft Finish Cardstock using the Fitted Rounded Rectangle die set using dies slightly larger than the ones used to die cut the stamped images.

Step Five: Using some 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the die cut images to the Rust cardstock.

Step Six: Using a watercolor maker and a water brush, add some light brown onto half of the feathers from the middle panel.

Step Seven: Repeat step six, but this time using a dark brown watercolor brush.

Step Eight: Adhere all three panels to an A2 card frame.

I love how the coloring in this technique pulls your eyes not to the color, but instead right to the sentiment. Let us know in the comments below what you think of the spotlight stamping technique used with Charlene’s stamp image. Until then, happy crafting!

Koalaty Friend…

February 25, 2020

Hi there! Samantha here, sharing with you a card using Joset’s Koala die. Koala’s are one of my favourite animals, so I was very pleased to finally have a play, and even more surprised how quickly the idea came together!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Using a variety of green cardstock die cut the small leaves.

Step 2: Using kraft card die cut the tree trunk, and adhere this to a light blue square card (measurements: 10cm x 10cm)

Step 3: Adhere the tiny leaves around the tree trunk.

Step 4: Continue adhering the leaves until most of the blue area is full.

Step 5: On blue cardstock (measuring: 10.5cm x 14.5cm) die cut a large circle. Then adhere this on top of your tree.

(Optional: Add machine stitched details)

Step 6: Using grey, white and black cardstock – die cut the Koala.

Step 7: Assemble and adhere the Koala to your card front.

Step 8: Stamp the sentiment on blue card. Trim. Adhere to card front.

Step 9: 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 (Green). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Repeat step 9 using Silk Microfine Glitter (Spring Peridot).

Step 10: Die cut the small hearts. Adhered this to the card front.

I love how framing the koala on a tree really makes him the feature on my card! He is rather adorable!

Happy Crafting!

A Set Of Cute Hippo Baby Cards

February 23, 2020

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!
xxx, Sanna

Oh Crab…I Forgot! Card

February 19, 2020

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. I have a fun card to share with you using the new Under The Sea release. Below are the steps to create your own Beach Scene 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 Adventure Edges (the cloud die) on scrap Cardstock. Place the diecut on the front of the card and apply using a Blender Brush and Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass. Repeat this step until you reach the middle of the card.

Step 3 – Diecut Sea Weed (the sand die) using White Soft Finish Card. Ink it using a Blender Brush and Ink of your choice.

Step 4 – Stamp Splish Splash sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink towards the left bottom of the sand created from Step 3.

Step 6 – Diecut Sea Weed (the stones, treasure chest and sea weed). Ink the pieces and assemble the treasure chest using Kids Choice Glue. I used Matte Metallic Cardstock for the treasure chest trims. Adhere the treasure chest, stones and sea weeds to the card front using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 7 – Diecut Sea Shells (crab) using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the pieces and assemble using Kids Choice Glue. Adhere to card using Kids Choice Glue. For added interest apply dots to the eyes using a White Gel Pen.

Step 8 – Diecut Lighthouse (Sea Gulls) x 3 using soft grey Cardstock. Adhere to card using Kids Choice Glue.

This card is great for any occasion you may have forgotten. You can always change the sentiment for a different occasion. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!

A Way With Words Cardmaking Silk Microfine Glitter

You Were Born With Greatness

February 15, 2020

Hi! Diana here with one of my favorite dies to work with –– anything with butterflies! I love the color scheme I ended up with but purple is hard to photograph –– and glitter even more so! But this one is very pretty in real life so I hope you give it a try.

  1. I started with a light green sheet of cardstock measuring 4.5″ x 6.5″. I used Distress Oxides Lucky Clover and Cracked Pistachio to sponge around the edges and Squeezed Lemonade in the center to give it a sort of glow. I splattered with water and pat dry.
  2. Die cut the Butterfly Spray out of the top half of the colored cardstock and stamp the You were born with greatness in the bottom left corner of the sheet.
Make sure the area overs the butterfly spray.

3. With a bigger sheet of purple cardstock, I marked the approximate area behind the butterfly spray and covered that part with double sided adhesive.

Looks like a mess but will be so pretty once you overlay the negative of the butterfly die cut over it.

4. I then added a mix of Silk Microfine Glitter over the area. I initially wanted just the Amethyst but then lightened it with the Bright Cranberry and Silver Sands glitter. Rub in the glitter and use a Swiffer sheet to wipe off any excess.

The glitter is much brighter and more vibrant in real life.

5. Adhere the front to the purple sheet and trim if necessary. I then placed it all on a white card base.

Thanks so much for looking! I hope this card signals spring to come –– or 3 feet of snow. Nothing in between, thank you. 🙂
