Wedding card

June 11, 2020

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again today with another guest design team post and video. For today´s post I´ve created a wedding card in green, red and white. I wanted to play with very traditional colours to create these mixed media cards.

Here is how to make these cards:

Step 1: Take a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and fold it into a card size of your choice. Then take the Make Your Mark stencil and place it on top of the white surface and apply modeling paste thru the stencil onto the background. I like to create an irregular pattern instead of filling the whole background. I find that more interesting to the eye.
Step 2: Now take watercolour/mixed media paper and stamp with Flower Power stamps and embossing ink onto that piece. Then pour fine white embossing powder on top of heat set if with a heat tool. While you are at it, make a bigger set of flowers!
Step 3: Now take watercolours (or use watercolour pencils, markers or Distress Inks or any coloring media you like to use) and color the flowers in red tones.
Step 4: After you are done coloring the flowers, paint a piece of white cardstock with light green watercolor tone and die cut leaves using the Trio of Leaves dies.

Step 5: Arrange the leaves and flowers onto the card base and adhere on place. I adhered the flower with 3D foam to get some additional texture, the leaves are adhered with liquid glue, but you could also use Clear Double Sided Adhesive (add to paper before die cutting!).
Step 6: Now take a strip of Soft Finish Cardstock and stamp a sentiment with black ink onto it. I used the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 set here. Adhere on place with 3D foam.
Step 7: If you prefer, you can add some green or red splatters onto the background with a watercolor brush, just make sure you protect the rest of the card with a paper towel.

I really like how this card turned out. I matted the card onto a light green cardstock in the end to get some additional contrast to the card. But this is totally optional – you could also work with a solely white card base.

While I created this card, I did several flowers and die cut a bunch of leaves, so I could make a batsch of cards at once. I used the same technique, but did cards in just a slightly smaller size. Here they are:

For a better idea I´ve again recorded a video for you to watch. Hope you enjoy it!!

I hope you enjoyed this month´s tutorial. See you again next month with another card idea. By the way, I´ve used a watercolour set from my own stash for the cards, but give the new watercolours at the store a try – they have such great colours in the set! Plus, note that the leaves I used are not available at the store, so I replaced them with a really nice leaf set in the supply list.

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna

Your’re my Hero

Hi there,

It’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this super sweet Rainbow Bear Card.

Step 1: Creating the Background

  • apply Prima Marketing transparent 3D Matte Gel through the heart portion of the Make your Mark stencil
  • add color with the Watercolors – I used Vermilion, Orange, Lemon Yellow, Yellow Green, Prussian Blue and Mauve

Here’s the color chart that I created with the new Elizabeth Craft Designs Watercolor Set:

Step 2: Creating the Bear

  • cut out all the elements for the Honey Bear from white Soft Finish Cardstock
  • color the elements with Alcohol Markers and add extra shading with Distress Ink Ground Espresso and a Mini Ink Blending Tool and highlights with a white gel pen

Step 3: Putting it all together and adding a Sentiment

  • adhere the adorable little bear to the rainbow panel
  • stamp the sentiments from the Make your own Sentiment 1 set with Versamark onto two strips of kraft cardstock and heat-emboss them with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder

Have a wonderful day. And next week I am going to show you how to create a completely different project with that same stenciled heart panel.

Hugs,

You are my Guiding Light and how to create custom-made Sentiments

March 25, 2020

Hi there,

it’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this card and how to make your own custom-made sentiments:

Step 1: Die Cutting

  • die cut a background panel and a wave border from watercolor paper with one of the Stitched Rectangles and one of the Ocean Edges
  • die cut the Lighthouse elements from white Soft Finish Cardstock

Step 2: Add Color

  • color the background with Distress Oxide Ink (Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans) and a Blending Brush
  • add water droplets for more texture
  • add color to the wave border with Distress Oxide Ink (Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire) and add some splatters with watered-down Distress Oxide Ink Chipped Sapphire
  • for the seafoam ink up the edge of the wave border with Versamark and heat-emboss it with WOW! Seafoam White embossing powder
  • color the lighthouse with Alcohol Markers

Step 3: Assembly and Finishing Touches

  • assemble the Lighthouse and the background – use clear double-sided adhesive and liquid glue
  • add white highlights with a white gel pen

Step 4: Create a custom-made Sentiment

  • there a several ways to create custom-made sentiments: you can use calligraphy or just your handwriting or a Labelmaker … in this case I used a Vintage Typewriter to type my sentiment onto sturdy white cardstock
  • cut the sentiment apart and ink up the edges with Distress Oxide Ink Pumice Stone
  • adhere the panel to a grey cardbase

I hope you got inspired.
