Have A Magical Day Card

June 3, 2020

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Lately I seem to be in a rainbow mode so I decided that my balloons would have a rainbow colour theme. I absolutely loved the results and loved all the burst of colours. Below you will find the steps to create your own rainbow of balloons card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 4 1/4” x 5 1/2”. Diecut The Cardstock with Stitched Rectangles and Frame It – Stitched Circles to create a window panel. If you don’t have the Frame It then use Fitted Circles. The only difference is that you won’t have a Stitched Circle along the frame.

Step 3 – Adhere any DIY background to the card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. I used Alcohol Inks on Yupo Paper to create an ocean feel background.

Step 4 – Stamp Build Your Own Sentiments 1 using Versafine Onyx Black Ink to the center bottom of the panel created from Step 2. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 5 – Diecut Octopus and Party Accessories (Balloons x6, Balloon Strings And Party Hat) using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Colour in all the diecut pieces using Alcohol Markers. I used Spectrum Noir Classique Markers. Assemble all the pieces and adhere to card using Kids Choice Glue and Foam Tape. TIP: I placed all my assembled pieces loosely on my card front and when I was satisfied with the placement I used Glad Press’ N Seal to keep the placement. I adhered glue to the Balloons and Foam Tape to the Octopus on the back side then turned it around and placed back to the card front and removed the Glad Press’ N Seal.

This card can be used for several occasions by changing the colours and sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

IMG_9730Hey Everyone!  It’s EK, and today I decided to try something I have never tried before.  I decided to try colored pencils coloring on 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.  I was worried that the 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock‘s texture would create uneven coloring, but I am not going to lie, I am absolutely in love with how the texture adds to the overall coloring effect.

Join me as I create a underwater spring themed card using colored pencils.

IMG_9712Step One:  Die cut the pieces you need from the Octopus, Seashells and Spring Basket die sets using 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

IMG_9713Step Two:  Color the die cut pieces using your colored pencils.

IMG_9714Step Three:  Create a background for your colored die cuts.  I used Distress Oxides in Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass, and Shaded Lilac plus some shimmer spray on a trimmed piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.  Attach the background to an A2 card frame using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

IMG_9715Step Four:  Using a combination of 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, Kids Choice Glue, and 3 dimensional tape, assemble the basket full of sea shells and adhere to the card frame.  Adhere the die cut Octopus onto the card, letting his legs over lap the basket.

IMG_9731Step Five:  Stamp your sentiment onto the card frame using blue ink.  I used a combination of sentiments from both the Spring Sentiments stamp set and Splish Splash Sentiments stamp set.

IMG_9732Have you ever used colored pencils on ECD’s Soft Finish Cardstock?  Did you enjoy the results as much as I did?  Let us know in the comments below.  Until then, happy crafting.
