Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Today’s card is using some oldies but goodies product to create a love themed card as well as a fun technique to create some DIY backgrounds using a Gel Plate. Below you will find the steps to create your own card and backgrounds.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 11” x 4 1/4”, score at 5 1/2” and fold in half for a horizontal top folding card. (A2)
Step 2 – Trim 8 1/2” x 11” White Soft Finish Cardstock into 4 pieces by trimming it in half and then again in half. Apply ink of your choice onto the Gel Plate with a brayer. I used Distress Oxide Inks in Worn Lipstick, Candied Apple, Dusty Concord. Place the Cardstock onto the Gel Plate, rub into it to get the ink to transfer on the Cardstock. Remove and let dry. Diecut Heart Background using White Cardstock. You will use this as a stencil. Apply the same inks onto the Gel Plate, place the stencil you created and add Cardstock. Remove the stencil. Place another Cardstock on the Gel Plate and rub into it. Remove and let dry. Trim the panel from the right and adhere onto the card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 3 – Diecut Flamingos using White Soft Finish Cardstock for the body and wings, cream Cardstock for the beak and legs, and Black Cardstock for the tip of the beak. Apply Distress Oxide Worn Lipstick to the body and wings. Apply Distress Oxide Candied Apple to the edges. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue. Adhere to card using Foam Tape making sure to keep them close as this will create a heart from the heads of the Flamingos.
Step 4 – Stamp Love Sentiment using Versamark on Black Cardstock. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a Heat Tool. Trim the sentiment and adhere to card using Foam Tape.
Step 5 – Optional – For added interest and sparkle randomly adhere Sequins.
This card can be used for several occasions such as an Anniversary or simply telling your spouse you love them. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again. I am very honored to be able to continue as a guest blogger here at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog bi-monthly this year. As my very first project for this year, I´d like to share a fun love-themed present set with you.
Here is what the finished project looks like:
Here is what I did:
Step 1: Die cut the light purple polka dot paper with the present box with the Pillow Box with Handle die. Also adhere the same paper as a background piece to a white card base. Step 2: Die cut the jar, the hearts, the tag and the straw from white Soft Finish Cardstock using the Summer Drink die cut die set. Step 3: Now die cut the flamingos also from white Soft Finish Cardstock using the Flamingos die cut die set. Step 4: Die cut a blue background piece from the Fly & Scrap paper collection papers with the Stitched Rectangles die. Step 5: Using Distress Inks color the flamingos, the jar, the hearts and the straw. I used mainly various pink tones and an ink blending tool for this step. Stamp a sentiment onto the jar tag. Step 6: Build the box, then assembly the flamingos and the jar together and adhere on place. Step 7: Decorate with a matching colored ribbon.
I´ve also recorded a process video for your to watch to give you a better idea on each an every step. Hope you enjoy it!
This is all from me for today. This type of love-themed project is perfect for so many occasions. Depending on the colours you choose, you can create something for Mother´s Day or for a Wedding or for a baby shower even!
I hope I could inspired you to play a little with your papers and dies. See you in April again! Happy crafting, Sanna Blog – Instagram – YouTube
Hi Friends, it’s Sandy Diller here to share a project that would be good as a keepsake or a gift. I was in my local craft store a few weeks ago where I saw the cutest little box that contained a photo album. I thought I would give it a try using my own measurements and decorations. We recently took a trip to the beach so I thought this would be a good way to save some fun photos.
