Hi Notecard

March 29, 2021

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Hi Notecard.

To create my notecard, I’ve used dies from the Paper Flower Collection, Els van de Burgt Studio and Joset Designs as well as stamps from the Art Journal Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my notecard at home.

Step One. Choose two pieces of patterned paper from the Worn Wood Paper Pack. Die cut a 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut a 4″ Fitted Indented Square out of the other patterned paper. Ink the edges of both squares using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut a 3 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of the square using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Die cut a 1 1/2″ Stitched Circle out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Next, you’ll need the letters H & I from the Morning Letters Stamp Set. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the letters and stamp onto the circle. Ink the edges of the circle using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. Die cut the Elegant Ornament out of a piece of brown patterned paper. Cut the ornament down to 4 1/4″.

Step Five. From the Florals 6, die cut the leaves three times out of a piece of green patterned paper.

Step Six. Die cut the Medium, small and extra small flower twice out of a blue lightly patterned paper. Die cut the medium, small and extra small flower once out of a blue patterned paper. Die cut the centres once out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of all of the flowers using Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

Step Seven. Adhere the 4″ square to the 4 1/4″ square. Foam square the 3 3/4″ square to the 4″ square.

Step Eight. Adhere the elegant ornament in the middle of the 3 3/4″ square. Adhere the 1 1/2″ stitched square to the middle of the elegant ornament.

Step Nine. Adhere the coordinating flowers together. Adhere a white centre in the middle of each flower.

Step Ten. Adhere the three leaves as desired on the left hand side of the card front. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the three flowers to the left side of the elegant ornament, making sure the flowers cover the bottom of the leaves.

Step Eleven. To finish the card, cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Hi Notecard at home.

My Best Days

December 9, 2020

Good morning!
With our busy hectic lives right now we sometimes don’t have a lot of craft time BUT we really need some time spent crafting and making pretty (or masculine) things. So to fit into our busy schedules simple is GOOD!

To create this layout
Step 1 – cover both sides of your paper with clear gesso ( I used Worn Wood paper pack) and allow to dry or heat with your gun

Step 2 – use your favorite ECD stencil and texture past on the right side top and left side bottom allow to dry or heat set (I used the Spring flower mandala)
Step 3 – Using your watercolor palette, paint the images and allow the paint to run down the page and a couple of brush strips above where your photo will be – this create more visual interest, allow to dry or heat set
Step 4 – stamp 2 images – I close to the right hand image and one above where your photo will be

Step 5 – using coordinating paper (I used the soft finish chocolate) die cut the elegant ornament, and the trio of leaves
Step 6 – tear a piece of cardboard and mat your photo.
Step 7 – adhere everything down and add your title

Thanks for stopping by,

Happy Thanksgiving Card

October 28, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Happy Thanksgiving Card.

To create my Happy Thanksgiving Card, I’ve used dies from the Paper Flower Collection as well as a die from Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my card at home.

Step One. Choose two patterned papers from the Worn Wood Paper Pack. From one of the patterned papers, die cut a 4 1/4″ Stitched Rounded Rectangle. From the other patterned paper, die cut a 3 3/4″ Stitched Rounded Rectangle. Distress the edges of both rectangles. Ink the edges of both rectangles using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut a 4″ Fitted Rounded Rectangle out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Distress the edges of the rectangles. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Die cut a 1 3/8″ Fitted Fishtail out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Trim the fishtail down to 3″. Die cut a 1 1/8″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtail out of one of the wood patterned papers you’ve already used. Trim the fishtail down to 2 3/4″. Distress the edges of both fishtails. Ink the edges of both fishtails using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. Die cut the Elegant Ornament out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Trim the ornament down to 4″. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of the ornament.

Step Five. Die cut two of the Berry Branch Die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Ground Espresso Distress Oxide Ink over the entire surface of each branch. Spritz each branch with water. Once the branches have dried, add dots to one of the branches using the Craft Drops in Pearl Rose. On the other branch, add dots using the Craft Drops in Metallic Gold.

Step Six. From the Words 3 – Happy Holidays Die, die cut the Happy Thanksgiving words out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Fired Brick Distress Ink over the entire surface of the words.

Step Seven. Adhere the 3 3/4″ rectangle to the 4″ rectangle. Foam square the 4″ rectangle to the 4 1/4″ rectangle.

Step Eight. Adhere the 1 1/8″ fishtail to the 1 3/8″ fishtail. Adhere the 1 3/8″ fishtail 1/4″ from the left and all the way to the top of the 4″ rectangle. Adhere the elegant ornament 5/8″ from the left and all the way to the top of the 4″ rectangle.

Step Nine. Adhere the two berry branches to the left hand side of the 3 3/4″ rectangle as desired.

Step Ten. Adhere the Happy Thanksgiving word to the bottom portion of the cardfront as desired.

Step Eleven. Cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Happy Thanksgiving Card at home.

Heavenly

October 6, 2020

Good morning!
I am excited to share my next creation for Elizabeth Craft Designs!
I am IN LOVE with the new Summer Art paper line and I finally got a chance to create with it….the designs and colors are outstanding!

To create this layout:

Step 1 – cover both sides of your paper with clear gesso ( I used the Summer Art Collection)
Step 2 – mix texture paste with a coordinating color of colorant (I chose tainted love teal from Lindys Stamp gang)
Step 3 – use your favorite ECD stencil and the colored texture paste approximately 2.5″ or 6 cm from the left hand side of your paper (I used the waves stencil)
Step 4 – while texture paste is still wet sprinkle Silk Microfine Glitter at top the image (I used copper)

Step 5 – place two pieces of cheesecloth (1 at least 12 inches or 30.5 cm long and one about 8 inches or 10cm ling) in a resealable freezer bag and color with your favorite mist or powder. (I used Lindy’s magical powders in Cowabunga copper and Hags Wart Orange). Remove from bag with tweezers or wearing gloves and dry with your heat gun
Step 6 – adhere the cheesecloth as shown in photos

Step 7 – fussy cut two small flowers, one large flower cluster, a turtle and a set of leaves from the paper and ink the edges

Step 8 – die cut three of your favorite ECD flowers (I used florals 2, florals 1, and florals 3) and assemble remembering to ink the edges
Step 9 – die cut an elegant ornament, palm tree and stem from the Summer Journal Special and an anchor, then ink the edges

Step 10 – grab your favorite chipboard title and heat emboss twice, on the third embossing sprinkle silk microfine glitter into the while you are heat setting the embossing powder. I do not normally take photos in direct sunlight but I wanted to share the glitteriness of the effect
Step 11 – create a photo mat, ink the edges of the mat as well as the background paper. Adhere everything as shown and add some seed beads!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
