Mini Slimline Birthday Wish Card

June 21, 2021

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here with another Birthday Wish Mini Slimline Card. I used the Donkey along with the Once Upon A Time Accessories for some Butterflies and the Farm Accessories for the Flower that is entwined in the Donkey’s Tail. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7” x 6”, score at 3 1/2” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Diecut Adventure Edges (cloud) to create a stencil for a cloud background. Place the diecut on the card front and using a Blender Brush apply ink. I used Distress Oxide Ink in Tumbled Glass. Move the stencil down and repeat until you filled up the complete card front.

Step 3 – Diecut Adventure Edges (grass) using Green Cardstock. Adhere the grass to the bottom using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 4 – Diecut Donkey using a Light Grey and Dark Grey Cardstock. Assemble and adhere the Donkey in between the Grass using Kid’s Choice Glue

Step 5 – Diecut Farm Accessories (flower petals, flower center and leaf stem) using various colors of Cardstock. Assemble and adhere the flower in between the Donkey’s Tail using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 6 – Diecut Once Upon A Time Accessories (Butterflies) in various colors of Cardstock. Adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 7 – Stamp Life Is Better On The Farm (sentiment) using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

This card can be used for several occasions by simply changing the sentiment. An idea is you can change the flower the Donkey is holding with the tail to Balloons instead using the Party Accessories. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Watercolor Spring

March 25, 2021

Hey Friends! It’s EK and today I am playing around with Joset’s die cut building scene Once Upon A Time die set and some watercolors. I have over the years successfully created with copic markers and die cut built pieces. I have played around with colored pencils, distress inks, and distress oxides with success. Well, today I am breaking out my watercolor palette and seeing if I can be successful once again.

Step One: Die cut the Once Upon A Time die set out of Watercolor paper.

Step Two: Using ECD’s Watercolor Palette, watercolor the die cut pieces.

Step Three: Using liquid adhesive, build the die cut pieces into their images. I used Kids Choice Glue.

Step Four: Using a piece of watercolor paper, create a watercolor background scene that is simple but shows both sky and grass. Let dry. Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Tape adhere the background to an A2 card frame.

Step Five: Adhere the mushroom and clouds to the background.

Step Six: Layer the rest of the die cut pieces into the scene.

Step Seven: Add a sentiment from the Once Upon A Time sentiment stamp set in pale blue ink.

Step Eight: To add more texture to the project, add Transparent Craft Drops onto the butterfly, reeds and flower center.

Step Nine: The card needed even more texture to ground everything, so using watercolor pencils, flick in grass blades in two shades of green.

Step Ten: Activate the grass with a watercolor brush to blend out the flicks.

What do you think? Was this experiment with die cut buildables and watercolor successful?

Would you be will to try this technique? Let us know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.

Step 1: Die Cutting

  • cut out a tag with the help of the smaller tag die from the Planner Essentials 26 set and the flower, the sun and some clouds from the Once upon a Time Accessories set

Step 2: Coloring

  • normally, I use Alcohol Markers to color my die cuts and add extra shading with Distress Ink but this time I tried something different
  • color all the elements with watercolors
  • I realized that I needed some grass too so I also cut two grass borders using the Adventure Edges die set

Step 3: Assembly

  • add some color to the background of the tag with Distress Oxide Ink Tumbled Glass and a Blending Brush
  • assemble the tag using liquid glue and double-sided foam adhesive

Step 4: Sentiment Stamping and Finishing Touches

  • stamp the sentiment from the Build your own Sentiments 1 set with Versafine Deep Lagoon into one of the clouds

I hope you got inspired.

Have A Magical Day

August 16, 2020

Hello friends and welcome, it’s Sandy Diller, today I have a magical card with an added bonus. I’m using the new Storybook collection from Joset. This new release is filled with whimsical characters that make you believe in magic.

The prince and princess stand as separate characters so when you display this fun card you can use your imagination and place them anywhere you like.

To make the castle – cut the Castle Folding Card twice and glue them together as shown below.

White Soft Finish Cardstock was used here and then some gray ink for shading, stenciling and stamping with the bricks from the Prince and Frog Sentiments. The window openings in the die were covered with gold paper from the back.

Brightly colored papers were used to add a whimsical look to this castle.

The stone facing for the door was made by using the included die and shading them with gray ink. The same die was used to add some windows on the the sections that needed them. The door opening was backed with a piece of vellum.

The castle was folded at each crease in different directions to make it stand up. The finishing touches for the castle were the glittered flags.

The Princess and Prince were assembled and then added to a separate stand that was made by using White Soft Finish card stock cut 5.5″ by 3″ and scored at 1.5″ and 4″, folded back to make them stand up. The paper was stenciled using an older stencil from my stash but you could use any paper that has stones or brick pattern. Using some dies from the Once Upon a Time Accessories die set I added a flower and then stamped and colored the frog from the Prince and Frog Sentiments.

My card still needs a sentiment so when I’m ready to send this card I will stamp it with one of the great sentiments from the Once Upon A Time Sentiments. This card folds up completely flat for mailing.

Have A Magical Day,

Sandy
