Sending You XOXO Card

May 28, 2020

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Rainbows have a new meaning these days. Did you know if you have circle dies you can make rainbows? Two of them. Below are the steps to create your own Sending You XOXO 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 horizontal card. (A2)

Step 2 – Place 7 circle dies evenly spaced on top of White Soft Finish Cardstock trimmed to 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” with removable tape. Diecut. Colour in rainbow colours using alcohol markers. Use tape on the backside to hold all the pieces together and adhere to card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Trim the access.

Step 3 – Diecut Sea Weed (the chest and accessories). Assemble the chest and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 4 – Diecut Peek-A-Boo Love Set and Entwined Heart (all the little hearts) using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Colour in various shades of red using Alcohol Markers. Adhere to the chest and some floating ones using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 5 – Stamp Bear Hugs sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink on White Soft Finish Cardstock. I did some stamp surgery by using Sending You A Bear Hug Stamp and using removable tape to cover A Bear Hug. I inked the stamp and removed the tape.

Step 6 – Diecut Diagonal Stitched Fishtails using the sentiment created from Step 5. Trim the left side and adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 7 – Optional – Randomly adhere some Craft Drops Transparent Crystal.

This card can be used for any occasion by changing the sentiment. You can also change up the rainbow colours. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here! With only 13 days until Valentine’s Day, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about creating those special cards for loved ones. So, today, I’m sharing with you my Love Card.

February Planner Page

February 6, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my February Planner Page. For the start of each month, I love creating a planner title page that either reflects an occasion that happens in that month or a season. To create my February Planner Page, I’ve used dies from the Planner Essentials collection and Els van de Burgt Studio. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

Step 1. On a scrap piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock, use a blending tool with foam to blend Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and Candied Apple Distress Ink on the cardstock. Die cut the small Entwined Hearts die twice out of the Worn Lipstick side of the cardstock. Die cut the small Entwined Hearts die twice out of the Candied Apple side of the cardstock. Ink the edges of all the hearts using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 2. From the Blackboard Alphabet die, die cut the F, E, B and dot out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Candied Apple Distress Ink over the letters and dot. Ink the edges of the letters and dot using a Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 3. Choose two pieces of patterned paper from the ModaScrap – Simply Love Paper Pack. Die cut the large Entwined Heart out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the medium Entwined Heart out of the other patterned paper. Ink the edges of the hearts using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 4. Die cut the 3 1/4″ Stitched Heart out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the heart using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 5. From one of the patterned papers you already used, die cut the 1 1/8″ Stitched Fishtail Banner out of the paper. Place the notched side of the stitched fishtail banner on the other side of the patterned paper to create a notch on the other size. The banner will end up measuring 4 3/4″ long. Ink the edges of the banner using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 6. Choose another piece of patterned paper from the ModaScrap – Simply Love Paper Pack. Die cut the planner page from the Planner Essentials – 1 die out of the patterned paper. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the February Calendar stamp and stamp onto the tab of the page. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the bubble stamp from the Patterns 2 Stamp Set and stamp onto the page. Reapply ink to the bubble stamp and stamp again on the page. You’ll need to repeat this step three more times onto the page.

Step 7. With a piece of foam square, adhere the banner to the middle of the page. Then, adhere the stitched heart to the middle of the banner.

Step 8. Adhere the large entwined heart over top of the stitched heart. Adhere the medium entwined heart to the middle of the stitched heart.

Step 9. Adhere the ‘FEB.’ to the middle of the stitched heart. Adhere the small hearts randomly around the hearts on the planner page. To finish off the page, add white lines to the bubbles where the other lines are.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my February Planner Page.
