Summer Strawberries

October 25, 2020

Hello and Welcome! Samantha here today, sharing this fun summer strawberry card. This is one of Elizabeth Craft Designs new releases which I paired up with the Beach Sentiments stamp set. I’ve had glimpses of hot summer weather and it’s put me in the mood to share this inspiration with you.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Cut a card front using light pink card measuring 10.5cm x 15.5cm.

Step 2: Die cut the strawberries die with the following pieces of card stock:

Stems: Light green card

Leaves: Dark blue/green card

Strawberries: Various shades of pink card and corrugated pink cardstock

Strawberry Leaf: Dark Green corrugated card

Flowers: Light pink card

Step 3: Arrange and adhere the green stems onto the card front, leaving room for the sentiment.

Step 4: Stamp the sentiment using black ink.

Step 5: Optional: Add machine stitched detail.

Step 6: Arrange and adhere the 3x large leaves onto the card front.

Step 7: Use foam tape to adhere the strawberries/Strawberry leaves onto the card front – arranged in a way that they appear to be dangling off their leaves.

Step 8: Embellish the card with the light pink flowers, a few sequins and a pink twine bow. Adhere the card front to an A6 card base.

Step 9: Lastly, adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to a small piece of cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Silver). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Use this glitter card to die cut the small circles that adhere to the middle of each flower.

It’s a very happy card and the pink strawberries (versus red) are a nice compliment to the blue/greens in this card. Hope you enjoyed my card tutorial today.

Happy Crafting!

Metallic toned cards

October 8, 2020

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here again today with my October guest team member post. I am a big fan of white cardstock, because you can do so much with it. So this time I wanted to show you a simple idea how you can create different toned metallic shaded cards really easy with just a few steps.

Here is how this cards are done:

Step 1: Take the “Heart” background die and one or two “A Way With Words” word dies out. Take a sheet of White Soft Finish Cardstock and apply a sheet of Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheet onto the backside. Leave the foil on.
Step 2: Place the paper and the die cut dies into your die cutting machine and build a sandwich according to the instrucktions of your particular machine. Die cut 3 (or more) background pieces and as many sentiments as you have backgrounds.
Step 3: Now remove all negative elements from your white cardstock pieces.

Step 4: Place the die cut pieces on a kraft mat and apply a metallic paste with a blending brush in circular motion onto your die cut pieces. I used a pearl, a silver and a gold tone on the 3 cards I created and for the sentiments I tried to match each patterned paper tone, so I used bronze, pink and blue on those.
Step 5: Now adhere the tinted background pieces onto a patterned paper of your choice and adhere the sentiment on top. Decorate for example with half pearls, dimentional pearls or rhinestones. Finally, adhere to a card base.

This simple idea can be used with various background dies to add a little different look to your cards. The nice surface texture of the Soft Finish Cardstock also shows thru after tinting the paper which adds a really nice look to the cards.

I´ve again recorded a video to give you a better idea of the steps – hope you like it!

I hope you could inspire you to play more with your dies and white Soft Finish Cardstock. There are so many possibilities to add some color to it, this is just one of them.

I´ll be back with another card idea again next month! See you then.

Happy crafting,
Sanna

I am Think of You

September 28, 2020

Hey Friends! It’s EK and I am popping in to share with you a little just because card! In a year filled with crazy ups and downs, one of the things that has become a positive in the year is I have started sending friends and families cards just because I am thinking of them. I am not waiting for their birthday or a holiday, I am just popping a note in the mail and saying “I am Thinking of You!” So with all of these simple no reason cards heading out, I have been upping my game in types of cards I am making and I find ECD’s Ilse and Charlene line of stamps and stencils are perfect for just these moments.

Step One: Stamp and heat emboss small floral images from the Spring Fling stamp set onto a piece of trimmed 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. I used Rose Gold embossing powder.

Step Two: Using colored pencils, add a little color to the insides of the heat embossed flowers.

Step Three: Blend some ink around the edges of the cards stock. I used Victorian Velvet Distress Oxide.

Step Four: Using the Dot Dot Dot stencil, blend ink through the stencil onto the cardstock. I used Scattered Straw Distress Oxide and a dirty blending brush.

Step Five: Using the Story Telling stencil, blend a contrasting ink. I used Dusty Concord Distress Oxide.

Step Six: Stamp one of the girls from the Earthy Girls stamp set onto a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Color the image in with colored pencils. Fussy Cut out the image.

Step Seven: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, add the background cardstock to an A2 card frame. Add the trimmed girl to the card face using 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Do you send cards to loved ones simply because? What is your favorite ECD products to use? Let us know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting!

Fast and fun sentiment card

September 6, 2020

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

Glitter Princess

August 17, 2020

IMG_0835Hey friends!  It’s EK, and I am popping in today with an over the top glitter card for a little princess in my life.  Let’s be honest, when dealing with the little princess in your life, it really should be over the top, and the new Princess Crown die set is perfect for a little bit of over the top glitter.

IMG_0825Step One:  Place some Clear Double Sided Adhesive over a piece of trimmed 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.  Die cut the Princess Crown die set over the Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

IMG_0826Step Two:  Peel back the adhesive paper of the crown shape die cut and adhere the detailed crown die cut over into the center of it.  Add Lavender Ice Silk Microfine Glitter over the die cut crown shape.

IMG_0827Step Three:  Peel the adhesive paper back from the detailed crown die cut and add Imperial Garnet Silk Microfine Glitter over it.

IMG_0828Step Four:  Add Bright Cranberry Silk Microfine Glitter over the Princess die cut and the heart from the detailed crown die cut.

IMG_0829Step Five:  Add Copper Rose Silk Microfine Glitter over the stars and flair die cut piece.

IMG_0830Step Six:  Trim a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches.  Blend dark water soluble ink over the cardstock and spray it with sparkling spray.  I used Black Soot Distress Oxide and Perfect Pearls Spray.  Let Dry.

IMG_0831Step Seven:  Die cut the blended piece of cardstock with a large die from the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set.

IMG_0833Step Eight:  Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the die cut blended cardstock to an A2 card frame.    Then add the glitter crown on top of the blended cardstock.  Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the rest of the die cuts to the card frame.

IMG_0834Step Nine:  Using a stamping platform, stamp stars and a sentiment from the new Once Upon a Time Sentiments stamp set using white pigment ink.

IMG_0836I wish you could see exactly how sparkly this card is with all this glitter.  I just adore how the pinks and purples just pop with the black behind it.

IMG_0837Let us know in the comments below if you would craft with this much glitter for the little princess in your life.  Until then, happy crafting.
