Hello all Jackie here. Today I have created something a little different! Sometimes the smallest dies we get in a die set can get overlooked, I have used just the leaves from die set – Turkey 1905 to make my own chip board pieces which give this design a lot of texture. Let’s get started.
Cover the front of an A2 top folding card blank with dark brown textured card.
Die cut the leaves into various autumnal shades of coloured card. Die cut enough to stack four of the same leaf together gluing each leaf as you go, this will create a solid chip board like piece.
Ink around the edge of each leaf, I have used distress inks but whatever you have in your stash will work just as well.
Cut a panel of white card to 5.5″x3″ arrange all the leaves onto the panel, then when you are happy with the lay out glue each one in place. Trim the overhanging leaves with a craft knife and ruler as they are a bit too tough for scissors. – If you do not have a craft knife then trim the leaves before gluing them together.
Die cut the scalloped edge from the planner set – Planner Essentials 27 Retro Number Trio. I know it’s not really an edge die but I love the look of this scallop. Trim the scallop edge to fit the panel.
Cut a strip of gold foil card then glue this to the reverse side of the prepared leaf panel leaving approximately 1/8″ showing at the side then fix the scalloped edge underneath.
Tear a small strip of vellum measuring 5/8″ then trim both ends to measure 3″ across. Stamp out and gold emboss the sentiment on to a strip of dark brown card measuring approximately 4″x1/2″ fold this around the piece of vellum and fix in place with double sided tape.
Attach the leaf panel to the card front using 3d foam pads then finish off by fixing the sentiment in place.
Thats my card for today. Although I do love to stack die cuts you could just cut the leaves once and use foam pads to raise them up or even fix them flat to the panel, whichever way I hope I have inspired you to look through your dies and see what you can do with the smallest ones.
Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. Now that we have finally entered into Fall, I wanted to share a fall themed thank you card.
Cut 1 A2 card base. Cut 1 piece of patterned paper at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. Cut one white card front from soft finish cardstock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″. Cut sunflowers from the farm accessories die set. Cut pumpkins from the Hayride die set. Cut leaves from the Turkey die set. Cut leaves from the Easter Basket die set. Cut “thanks” from Words 2-Thinking of You die set.
Instructions: Using Rusty Hinge ink, blend ink in the center of the card front
Lightly draw a circle in the center of the card front
Splatter Gold and Black inks onto the card front
Adhere leaves from the Easter Basket die set forming a wreath shape
Adhere pumpkins, sunflowers, and fall leaves around the wreath
Adhere the sentiment and a few sequins card front. Adhere the card front to the patterned paper. Attach the patterned paper panel to the front of the card base and the card is complete
It is almost Fall over here in the Netherlands so time to play with this season. This time I made a page in my TN. I used the Holiday Special Kit and some dies from Joset.
First I made the page with the house dies and the Fabrick paper. I realy love the brick at the back. The roof is made with Kraft Cardstock paper from Tim Holtz. This is beautiful paper which you can scrub.
Then it is time to decorate the house with some fall stuff. At the left page I adhere a three with leaves and pumpkin’s. All these parts are coloured with Distress Oxide Ink.
At the right page I used stamp/dies from the girl and lantern from the Holiday Special Kit. You can colour this with anything you want, I thought the watercolour pallete from ECD is perfect for this.
At least I made a big pumpkin and some smaller with some leaves. And in the right corner I adhere a sentiment. I like to adhere everything in different depths. The leaves are between the pumpkins, behind the pumpkins and in front of the pumpkins.
I think this is everything about this page. I hope you liked this post and got some ideas.
Hello everyone, Annette Green here today with my final pages in my Greenville Planner which I’ve been sharing throughout 2020. I ended this planner/journal with some Fall pages, at which time my planner was filled to the brim. I decided it was a good place to stop, especially since I started a new planner in December for my Day-by-Day memories. (You can check that December DBD video out HERE if you like.)
Hi everyone, it’s Annette Green today with Susan’s Garden Design Team. Even though Florida is rather hot and humid this time of year, it’s Fall in my craft room. While strolling through my local craft store the other day, I came across realistic-looking scented candles with battery-operated wicks. This is what inspired me for my project today.
Hello everyone, it’s Annette Green from the Susan’s Garden Club Design Team here today to share a special birthday card for my Mom. I was in the mood for fall, so I created a flower pot filled with fall flowers. Garden Notes ‘Potted’, ‘Marigold’ and ‘Aster’ are brand new dies from the Summer 2016 release!
Check out Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s video tutorial on the Garden Notes Aster HERE.
Hello, everyone! It’s Els here and I’m having such a great week that I wanted to share it with you – so not a project and instructions today, but with news from here in Colorado…
Our daughter Joset and granddaughter Annika are visiting. It’s been so much fun watching the two together, and Joep and I are very hands-on – tons of cuddling and stories. Annika even eats black beans, inspiring me to branch out and try new foods so she doesn’t get ahead of me when it comes to adventurous eating habits!
Joset’s here for work, too. We’re taping YouTube videos. Susan Tierney-Cockburn arrived on Sunday to tape tutorials for her new release as well. We’ve got a full house, just the way we like it! Both Joset and Susan will also be guest hosting Technique Friday with Els. We may not sleep at all!
Meanwhile, we hope you’ve already taken a gander at the new releases from Susan and from Karen Burniston. We know you’ll find a zillion must-haves. We’re including some projects here to spark your muse. And be sure to head over to their Facebook pages and blogs so you don’t miss out on a single thing! Karen is posting a YouTube video tutorial every day for a week to showcase her collection.
And I’m excited to announce that the wonderful new collection of dies and stamps from Joset Designs is going to be revealed on August 11th (yes, this is a proud mother speaking) along with Suzanne Cannon’s latest ‘A Way With Words’ dies.
Our design team and guest designers are busily creating projects and writing instructions. Stay tuned! This is going to be a very active and fun-filled time on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog and the YouTube Channel as well!
Speaking of active and fun-filled, Annika is ready to go outside and play, and so am I!
