Glitter Turtle

March 22, 2020

Hey Friends! It’s EK and today I am trying to create a simple ocean background for the new Sea Turtle die set. I really think this new turtle is super cute, and she needs the perfect ocean background to swim in…and what’s more perfect for an ocean background then a bunch of glitter!

Step One: Trim a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches. Cover the cardstock in a sheet of Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step Two: Die cut the top of the cardstock using one of the waves from the new Ocean Edges die set.

Step Three: Peel back the protective film from the double sided adhesive. Add Silk Microfine glitter to the sticky side one color at a time. I used Silver, Royal Blue and Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.

Step Four: Die cut the Sea Turtle from some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Five: Using watercolor pencils, color the die cut pieces.

Step Six: Using a watercolor brush, activate the watercolor pencil. Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the pieces of the turtle together.

Step Seven: Adhere the glitter cardstock to an A2 card frame using some 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step Eight: Using both 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive and Kids Choice Glue, adhere the turtle to the card frame.

Step Nine: Stamp a sentiment on the ‘white space’ of the card from the Splish Splash Sentiments stamp set.

I love the combination of the ‘realistic’ turtle with the less than realistic ocean background.

I think all the glitter really makes the turtle stand out! Let us know in the comments below your favorite way to use Silk Microfine glitter. Until then, Happy Crafting!

Koalaty Friend…

February 25, 2020

Hi there! Samantha here, sharing with you a card using Joset’s Koala die. Koala’s are one of my favourite animals, so I was very pleased to finally have a play, and even more surprised how quickly the idea came together!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Using a variety of green cardstock die cut the small leaves.

Step 2: Using kraft card die cut the tree trunk, and adhere this to a light blue square card (measurements: 10cm x 10cm)

Step 3: Adhere the tiny leaves around the tree trunk.

Step 4: Continue adhering the leaves until most of the blue area is full.

Step 5: On blue cardstock (measuring: 10.5cm x 14.5cm) die cut a large circle. Then adhere this on top of your tree.

(Optional: Add machine stitched details)

Step 6: Using grey, white and black cardstock – die cut the Koala.

Step 7: Assemble and adhere the Koala to your card front.

Step 8: Stamp the sentiment on blue card. Trim. Adhere to card front.

Step 9: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to white cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Green). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Repeat step 9 using Silk Microfine Glitter (Spring Peridot).

Step 10: Die cut the small hearts. Adhered this to the card front.

I love how framing the koala on a tree really makes him the feature on my card! He is rather adorable!

Happy Crafting!

A Way With Words Cardmaking Silk Microfine Glitter

You Were Born With Greatness

February 15, 2020

Hi! Diana here with one of my favorite dies to work with –– anything with butterflies! I love the color scheme I ended up with but purple is hard to photograph –– and glitter even more so! But this one is very pretty in real life so I hope you give it a try.

  1. I started with a light green sheet of cardstock measuring 4.5″ x 6.5″. I used Distress Oxides Lucky Clover and Cracked Pistachio to sponge around the edges and Squeezed Lemonade in the center to give it a sort of glow. I splattered with water and pat dry.
  2. Die cut the Butterfly Spray out of the top half of the colored cardstock and stamp the You were born with greatness in the bottom left corner of the sheet.
Make sure the area overs the butterfly spray.

3. With a bigger sheet of purple cardstock, I marked the approximate area behind the butterfly spray and covered that part with double sided adhesive.

Looks like a mess but will be so pretty once you overlay the negative of the butterfly die cut over it.

4. I then added a mix of Silk Microfine Glitter over the area. I initially wanted just the Amethyst but then lightened it with the Bright Cranberry and Silver Sands glitter. Rub in the glitter and use a Swiffer sheet to wipe off any excess.

The glitter is much brighter and more vibrant in real life.

5. Adhere the front to the purple sheet and trim if necessary. I then placed it all on a white card base.

Thanks so much for looking! I hope this card signals spring to come –– or 3 feet of snow. Nothing in between, thank you. 🙂

February 11, 2020

Hi there! It’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this cute Valentine’s Day Tag:

Step 2: Adding Color

  • Color the cupcake and the hearts with Alcohol Markers

Step 3: Creating the Background

  • Add color with Distress Oxide Ink (Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers) and a Mini Ink Blending Tool
  • Cut the colored tag apart by using one of the Valentine’s Edges dies
  • Puzzle the pieces together on the second tag
  • Cut out additional little dots, color them red and puzzle them into the openings

Step 4: Stamping

Santa Is Coming!

December 24, 2019

Here Comes Santa Claus! Hello – Samantha here…with my last Christmas card for the year! I completely love the idea of Santa’s alternative mode of transportation portrayed in this card…I can totally see him giving Rudolf the night off and flying around in this modified Safari Jeep!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Cut green card stock to fit an A6 card base. (Measurements: 114mm x 162mm)

Step 2: Die cut the Adventures Edges wave die using white cardstock and to create a snowy background. Adhere to card base – trim.

Optional: Add machine stitched details.

Step 3: Using red, black and white cardstock die cut the Safari Jeep. Put aside the grill, side mirrors, and head lights to die cut (see Step 6) with silk microfine glitter.

Step 4: Stamp the sentiment on the ‘Safari Jeep’ bumper.

Step 5: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to red cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Light Gold). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 6: Die cut the remaining ‘Safari Jeep’ parts – grill, side mirrors, and head lights.

Step 7: Die cut the Santa using red, white, cream and black cardstock.

NOTE: Only the top half of Santa is required for this card.

Step 8: Assemble and adhere the Santa die cut peices together.

Step 9: Adhere the wheels to the card front, and start to assemble the Safari Jeep.

Step 10: Adhere Santa to the card front. Using pattern paper and cardstock die cut the presents (from Santa’s Sleigh die) and adhere them to the card front.

TIP: Before permanently adhering the Santa and presents check that they align with the Jeep.

Step 11: Adhere the Jeep over the Santa and presents. Adhere additional die cut presents to the card front. Die cut and adhere Santa’s bell using gold card. Embellish with sequins and a twine bow.

Happy Crafting –– hope you enjoyed my final Christmas card for this year and that Santa will be visiting you tonight (preferably with some brand new crafting goodies!)

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Magic

December 21, 2019

Merry Christmas!  It’s Suzanne here today with a last minute Christmas card!

When I created this stamp, I knew it would be versatile when used with the dies.  And when I went to create this card, I was torn!  What would the focus be?  Christmas?  Believe?  Magic?  We have all three dies available to choose from!  I guess I should make one of each card, but because glitter was on my mind, I decided that a shiny “Magic” would be the focus.

This is how you can make this card:
