Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again today with another guest design team project share. For my September project I created a fun and a super fast to make card. This card can be finished in under ten minutes.
Here is how to make the card:
Step 1: Take a green plain or polka dotted paper and attach Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back. Now take the legs from the Frog die and die cut 11 paires (for this card size) of legs. The adhesive on the back makes the adhering process very fast. Step 2: Arrange the legs onto a ivory toned card base in rows of threes. Step 3: Remove the adhesive backing and adhere the legs on place. Step 4: Take a Dymo and type on black tape the sentence “break a leg”. Adhere on the card. Step 5: Decorate with black liquid pearls, let dry and the card is done.
I´ve also recorded a short video to show you how fast such a card can be done. I hope you like the idea!!
See you again with another card project idea next month. Until then, Happy crafting, xxx, Sanna

Hello – Samantha here. Today I wanted to share with you what is perhaps one of the most pink card I’ve ever made!
Step 1: Use pattern paper and cut out a card front. (Card Measurement: 10.5cm x 14.5cm)
Add 5 machine stitched lines. Alternatively use a white pen to add line details.
Step 2: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to white cardstock. Die cut the crown outline as well as a few stars.
Step 3: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Silver). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
Step 4: Use pink card to die cut the crown detailed die.
Step 5: Use light pink card to die cut the crown detail die.
Step 6: Assemble the crown as shown below. Use foam tape to adhere the light pink negative die cut details.
Step 7: Die cut extra stars using pink and silver card. Adhere the crown and stars as shown below.
Step 8: Stamp the sentiment onto pink card, trim, and adhere this to the card front using foam tape.
Step 9: Embellish the card with sequins, gems and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 side folding card base.
As you can see it’s like pink exploded onto my card. My 4 year old loves it. I hope you do to!
Hey friends! It’s EK, and I am popping in today with an over the top glitter card for a little princess in my life. Let’s be honest, when dealing with the little princess in your life, it really should be over the top, and the new Princess Crown die set is perfect for a little bit of over the top glitter.
Step One: Place some Clear Double Sided Adhesive over a piece of trimmed 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the Princess Crown die set over the Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Two: Peel back the adhesive paper of the crown shape die cut and adhere the detailed crown die cut over into the center of it. Add Lavender Ice Silk Microfine Glitter over the die cut crown shape.
Step Three: Peel the adhesive paper back from the detailed crown die cut and add Imperial Garnet Silk Microfine Glitter over it.
Step Four: Add Bright Cranberry Silk Microfine Glitter over the Princess die cut and the heart from the detailed crown die cut.
Step Five: Add Copper Rose Silk Microfine Glitter over the stars and flair die cut piece.
Step Six: Trim a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches. Blend dark water soluble ink over the cardstock and spray it with sparkling spray. I used Black Soot Distress Oxide and Perfect Pearls Spray. Let Dry.
Step Seven: Die cut the blended piece of cardstock with a large die from the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set.
Step Eight: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the die cut blended cardstock to an A2 card frame. Then add the glitter crown on top of the blended cardstock. Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the rest of the die cuts to the card frame.
Step Nine: Using a stamping platform, stamp stars and a sentiment from the new Once Upon a Time Sentiments stamp set using white pigment ink.
I wish you could see exactly how sparkly this card is with all this glitter. I just adore how the pinks and purples just pop with the black behind it.
Let us know in the comments below if you would craft with this much glitter for the little princess in your life. Until then, happy crafting.
Hi! How many hobbies do you have? And have you ever combined your hobbies? I love the cards with the machine stitching, cross- stitching, watercoloring… It’s a surprising amount of things you can pull into your cards. Today I am doing a very easy one – adding origami paper to my card. My son got these and gave me the “less cool” ones and I thought they were perfect to use with the Asian Accessories die set.
I die cut the lantern out of 4 sheets of origami at a time – which is a great time saver since the paper is thinner than regular card stock. The paper is so very pretty and also has a nice, almost velvety texture that adds to the card.
To start the card, I trimmed a sheet of white card stock to 5 5/16″ x 4 1/8″ and sponged the top a soft blue. Using an awl, I poked two small holes at the top and strung a gold wire through it. ( I lost the packaging but I think it is 24 gauge or thinner.) I found this to be a lot easier to control than twine and love the shine to it. I popped up 3 lanterns with foam tape on them. The strings that attach the lantern to the wire was cut from black card stock that had the double sided adhesive on the back. Carefully put one side in front of the wire and the other on the back.
The final addition is a the die cut of Congratulations covered with Silver Sands Microfine Silk glitter with a black drop shadow. I’m looking forward to when I could use this motif for a party invitation!
Hello and welcome! Samantha here – today I’m sharing a super cute card. I really wanted to make this Panda pop off my card, so I created a pink heart background to contrast with the black and white bear!
Step 1: Use black and white card to die cut the Panda.
Step 2: Use washi tape, secure white card (Card Measurement: 10.5cm x 14.5cm) to the craft mat. Next, position the stencil over the white card, securing it down with washi tape.
Step 3: Use a blending tool to blend in a generous amount of pink ink over the stencil, through to the white card.
Reposition the stencil, secure and repeat ink blending until the whole card front is full of pink hearts.
Step 4: Die cut three hearts using pink card.
Step 5: Stamp the sentiment on pink card, adhere this and the three hearts to the card front.
Step 6: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Silver). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Use this glitter card to die cut small hearts (Peek-a-Boo die set) .
Step 7: Assemble and adhere the Panda to the card front. Embellish with the small hearts and sequins. Adhere a twine bow to the card.
Step 8: Adhere the card front to an A6 card base.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my ‘pandastic’ tutorial today!
Karen here today from Craftily Yours! There are so many fun dies at Elizabeth Craft Designs that I have a hard time figuring out what I want to do when I start to craft. Today, the FuN Zebra just called from the wild.
I’ve wanted to create a card using this Dragon die for the longest time but could never figure out a background. Paper alone wasn’t going to give me the look I wanted so I brought out the ink pads and created my own colourful background!
Step 1: Cut out a card front using white card stock measuring: 10.5cm x 14.5cm
Step 2: Using a blending tool, blend circular spots of purple ink onto the card front.
Step 3: Using a blending tool, blend circular spots of pink ink onto the card front.
Step 4: Using a blending tool, fill in the gaps, blending yellow ink onto the card front.
Step 5 : Using the star dies – from Elegant Christmas Tree die cut a stencil from a piece of scrap white card stock.
Step 6: Use this star stencil and a blending tool to apply white pigment ink onto the card base.
Step 7: Move the stencil around, and repeat step 6 until you are happy with the amount of stars on the card front.
Step 8: Using a variety of pink card stock die cut the clouds.
NOTE: These clouds are actually from the Elizabeth Craft Designs ‘tree’ die.
Step 9: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to light pink cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Diva). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Use this glitter card to die cut the wings, tail, and ears of the dragon.
Step 10: Die cut the remaining pieces of the Dragon – use a variety of shades in pink card stock.
Step 11: Assemble the dragon and adhere the pieces together. Adhere googly eyes to the dragon.
Step 12: Stamp the sentiment using embossing ink, apply white embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Adhere this to the card front.
Step 13: Adhere card base to an A6 card front. Embellish with sequins and a twine bow.
I loved playing around with this bokeh ink blending background technique – especially using die cut stars to create a stencil. Hopefully it inspires you to try this technique maybe even die cut your own stencil.
Karen here today from Craftily Yours! Today, I was inspired by sentiments, sentiments that I thought fit the time we are living in very well. The sentiments, of course, go very well with the amazing characters designed by Joset! I plan to send these cards out to friends who need or deserve some mail cheer!
Hello – Samantha here. Welcome! Today I am sharing a fun shaker card using a few of Joset’s latest stamps and dies. Seriously – this card is NOT as difficult as it looks but its does require a lot of paper!
Step 1: Using cardstock (in different shades of blue) die cut three waves using the Ocean Edges dies. Adhere these (shown below) to a light blue card front measuring 10.5cm x 14.5cm.
Next, Die cut one more of the waves using blue card and then die cut the ocean floor using the Sea Weed die and two shades of yellow card stock.
Step 2: (Optional) Using organza/netted material, trim the top and sides to match the die cut waves and card front edges. Using a sewing machine stitch three sides of the material to the card front, insert a handful of sequins between the material and the card front, sew up the opening.
TIP: If you don’t have a sewing machine to stitch the edges, cut the organza material slightly larger and fold each edge around the card, adhering the material to the back of the card front.
Step 3: Adhere the die cut wave and yellow floor to the card front, overlapping the shaker feature.
Step 5: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to light pink cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Diva). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
Step 6: Using card stock and the microsilk glitter card, die cut the pieces of the mermaid. Using blending card, die cut the face, body and arms.
Step 7: Colour in the mermaids face, body and arms using Copic Markers E00, E000, E01 and R20.
Step 7: Assemble the mermaid. Adhere the pieces together.
Step 8: Stamp the sentiment on yellow card, trim,then adhere it to the card front.
Step 9: Die cut the seaweed and stars. Adhere these to the card front.
Step 10: Embellish the card with a twine bow and some sequins. Adhere card front to an A6 side folding card base.
This card would be great with or without the shaker feature. Personally, I love the fun element of shaking the sequins around. I hope you try it at home!
