Cardmaking ModaScrap Soft Finish Cardstock Stamping

Bold And Bright Save The Date Card

September 23, 2019

Hi friends! It’s EK, and today I am popping in to share a bold and bright ‘save the date’ invitation design.

So often I see an invitation or save the date cards and they are often created with pale or pastel tones and so serious. I thought it might be really fun to create a bold, bright, and fun ‘save the date’ card. And since I am using the ModaScrap Wedding Sentiments stamp set, creating this card will be so simple.

Step One: Trim a piece of 110lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×8.5 and score and fold to create a A2 card.

Step Two: Using the smallest circles from the Dashing Circles die set, die cut a series of circles out of bright colored Soft Finish Cardstock. I used Ladybug Red, Bright Orange, Sky Blue, Spring Green, and Perfect Purple Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Three: Create a frame for the card using two dies from the Dashing Rectangles die set. I used some Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock for my frame.

Step Four: Using the Wedding Sentiments stamp set, stamp images and a sentiment onto your die cut circles using some black ink.

Step Five: Adhere the black die cut frame to the card using some 3mm Double Sided Adhesive.

Step Six: Adhere the die cut circles onto the card frame, letting some of the circles dangle off the edge. Trim the bits hanging off the card so the circles become flush with the edge of the card.

Step Seven: Add some decorative drops to the card frame using a liquid drops. Did you see that ECD just add a brand new line of Craft Drops to their store? There are six new colors and I am so excited to play with these new craft drops!

I hope you got a kick seeing how I created this bold and bright save the date card. What I like about this design is I can change the stamp set and create a whole new card. Need a birthday card, this design will work. Need an anniversary card, this design could also work. And of course this fun, bright, bold design will be perfect for an anytime card!

Let us know in the comments below what your favorite color pallet is. Do you like bold and bright, pale or pastel, dark, jewel toned? Let us know because we are curious to hear!

Mr & Mrs Card

July 24, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you a pretty wedding card perfect to give to that special couple getting married this year.

To create my card, I’ve used a variety of dies and patterned paper from ModaScrap. I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

Step one. Choose a piece of patterned paper from the ModaScrap Pink Cotton Candy Paper Pack. Die cut the 4″ Dashing Rectangle out of the patterned paper piece. Die cut the 4 1/2″ Dashing Rectangle out of the kraft cardstock piece. Ink the edges of both pieces with Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step two. Die cut the Lace Corner twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the Lace Corner twice out of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of all four corners using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step three. Die cut the 2 3/4″ Dashing Circle out of kraft cardstock. From the Wedding Sentiments stamp set, you’ll need the connected hearts stamp. Apply VersaMark Ink to the heart stamp and stamp onto the circle. Reapply ink to the stamp and stamp again until the entire circle is covered. Ink the edges of the circle using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step four. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Mr & Mrs stamp and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Fussy cut the Mr & Mrs out.

Step five. Choose another patterned paper piece out of Pink Cotton Candy Paper Pack. Die cut one of the hearts from the True Love die set out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of the heart using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step six. Choose a third piece of patterned paper from the Pink Cotton Candy Paper Pack. Die cut the hearts from the Love, Life Tag out of the patterned paper three times. Ink the edges of the three hearts using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step seven. Adhere the 4″ Dashing Rectangle to the 4 1/2″ Dashing Rectangle.

Step eight. Adhere the white lace corner to the kraft lace corner, making sure a bit of the kraft lace corner is showing. Repeat the previous step for the other corner. Adhere one of the lace corners to the bottom right side of the rectangles. Adhere the other lace corner to the top left side of the rectangles.

Step nine. Foam square the dashing circle to the middle of the cardfront. Foam square the heart to the middle of the circle.

Step ten. Adhere the Mr & Mrs sentiment to the middle of the heart. Adhere the three hearts around the large heart. Cut a piece out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5 3/4″ x 9″, score at 4 1/2″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Mr & Mrs Card.

Shimmer Sheetz Sunday: Cupcake and Cake Toppers

July 8, 2018

By Judi Kauffman

This tutorial is devoted to sweet treats and parties. And, yes. I ate all three fancy store-bought cupcakes after finishing the photos…one a day to prove myself capable of a modicum of self-restraint (I live near Georgetown Cupcake so I splurged), but I resisted the urge to bake or buy a cake on which to show the cake topper!

This project has many other options. Several are listed at the end of the instructions.

A Way With Words

Planner Books

June 30, 2018

 by Judi Kauffman

Planning a wedding or other big event? Need to keep track of invitations sent and RSVPs received, the menu and other aspects of the special event? Give some inexpensive composition books a facelift and you can do it in style!

To customize the books for use as a journal instead of a planner, incorporate the word ‘Courage’ or ‘Memories’ or ‘Faith’ or ‘Make a Wish’ instead. And ‘Special Day’ remains a good choice for journals as well as planner books. Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words collection has so many wonderful options.
