Hey Friends! It’s EK Gorman and I am popping in with a brand new card design using designers Ilse and Charlene’s stamps. I just adore the sweet innocence the new Floral Girls stamp set has, and love how perfectly it pares with the older A Field of Flowers stamp set.
Step One: Trim a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches. Using black alcohol ink ink stamp an image from the Floral Girls Stamp set.
Step Two: Using the same ink, stamp floral images from the A Field of Flowers stamp set around the image of the girl.
Step Three: Stamp the sentiment onto the cardstock using the same stamp set and ink.
Step Four: Using alcohol ink color in the image. I used copics.
Step Five: Using the new Make Your Mark stencil, add stenciling to the cardstock using Distress Oxide. I used Shabby Shutters.
Step Six: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the trimmed stamped and colored cardstock to an A2 card frame.
Thanks for peeking in today to this simple but elegant card design. Do you like coloring floral images as much as I do? Let us know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.
Good morning! Laura here today to share another wedding layout I created for my beautiful nieces upcoming wedding!
To create this layout: Step 1 – distress the edges of a 12×12 sheet of paper Step 2 – trim one sheet of paper to 11.5 x 11.5 and distress the edges then adhere it t o the 12×12 sheet Step 3 – trim a sheet of coordinating paper to 5×12 and cover both sides with clear gesso and allow to dry. Step 4 – using the Make Your Mark Stencil – using the heart part of the stencil and texture paste – stencil it at the top of the 5×12 sheet of paper Step 5 – using Fire Opal silk microfine glitter and black embossing powder and sprinkle both on the texture paste. Remove excess then heat set with your heat gun – repeat at the bottom of this page.
Step 6 – distress the edges then adhere to the previous pages in the center Step 7 – die cut 2 large 1/2 hearts (making sure you have one die cut opposite to the first one so you can put them together to make one large heart) using the Planner Essentials 20 set Step 8 – die cut two of the smaller size hearts also making sure to die cut one inverted so you can make one heart) from the same set. Distress the edges of all four pieces Step 9 – adhere smaller heart to larger heart making sure to line up the holes. Step 10 – using coordinating ribbon, lace the holes at the top (if you are using a smaller then 6×4 photo or if your photo is vertical rather then horizontal repeat this step at the bottom of the heart) Step 11 – adhere the hearts to page then create a bow and adhere to the top of where you laced Step 12 – cut a double photo mat for your photo and adhere
Step 12 – Die cut the title also from the planner essentials 20 Step 13 – die cut and assemble 5 flowers using your favorite ECD flower dies. Dip each petal in a little bit of glue then in the Fire Opal glitter. If desired add a pearl to the center of each flower. Step 14 – Die cut two of heart Blooming Branches and using the red craft drops dot the flowers and hearts Step 15 – adhere all those pieces
Step 16 – Die cut the a large and small heart dangel from the Planner Essential 25. Die cut it again if you did not use double sided paper so the heart is of different paper.

Step 1: Creating the Basic Texture

Step 2: Adding Color and more Texture
adhere some torn washi tape strips to the page
let Distress Stains (Cracked Pistachio, Gathered Twigs) drip down the page
add some Prima Marketing white Heavy Gesso to random spots
apply Distress Oxide Ink Black Soot to the xo part of the Make your Mark stencil with a Mini Ink Blending Tool
ink up the edges with that same black ink
water-down some of the black ink and add some splatters
Step 3: Adding a Die Cut and a Sentiment

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Inspire Gift Tag.
To create my tag, I’ve used a variety of the dies, stamp and stencil from Charlene and Ilse’s Art Journal Specials Collection as well as a couple of dies from the Planner Essentials Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my tag at home.
Step One. Die cut the small tag from the Planner Essentials – 2 die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Place the stripe portion of the Make Your Mark stencil on the middle of the tag. Using a palette knife, put Texture Paste Opaque Matte through the stencil. Remove the stencil. Once the paste has dried, ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Two. Next, you’ll need two coordinating patterned papers. Die cut the small note piece from the Planner Essentials 21 – Note Pieces die out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the stitched rectangle from the same die out of the second piece of patterned paper. Ink the edges of both pieces, using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Three. From the Planner Essentials 21 – Note Pieces die, die cut the curly arrow out of kraft cardstock.
Step Four. From the Blooming Branches die, die cut one branch out of book page and die cut the other branch out of black cardstock.
Step Five. Die cut the stitched label from the Planner Essentials 26 – Planner Pocket 3 – Tags & Toppers out of a third coordinating pattern paper piece. From the same die, die cut the inspire word out of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of the label using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Six. From the Planner Essentials – 8 die, die cut one of the reinforcements out of black cardstock. Cut the reinforcement so that it fits over the circle on the tag and the top ends at the top of the tag.
Step Seven. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the leaves stamp from the First Sights of Spring stamp set and stamp onto a piece of watercolour paper. Colour the leaves in using a waterbrush and the Watercolor Palette. Once the image has dried, fussy cut the image out. Ink the edges of the image using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Eight. Cut a piece of burlap that measures 1 3/4″ x 3″.
Step Nine. Adhere the reinforcement circle to the tag. Adhere the burlap 1/4″ from the left and 1/4″ from the bottom of the tag.
Step Ten. Adhere the stitched rectangle 3/8″ from the left side and 1/4″ from the bottom of the note piece. Foam square the note piece 3/8″ from the left and 3/8″ from the bottom of the tag. Adhere the arrow to the left hand side of the stitched rectangle.
Step Eleven. Adhere the label 3/4″ from the left and 1/8″ from the bottom of the note piece. Adhere the heart branch to the middle of the label. Adhere the other branch 1/2″ from the left and 1/8″ from the bottom of the note piece.
Step Twelve. Foam square the leaves image to the middle of the branches. Adhere the inspire word to the right hand side of the stitched rectangle and note piece.
Step Thirteen. To finish the tag, tie a piece of twine through the whole the top of the tag.
Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Inspire Gift Tag.
