Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. I wanted to make a birthday slimline card using the words from the Birthday Flip Card die set.
From white cardstock, cut a slimline card base measuring 8 1/2″ x 7″. Along the 7″ side, score the card base at 3 1/2″. Cut the Happy Birthday from the Birthday Flip Card die set from colored cardstock of your choice. From the Party Time die set, cut some party hats from you favorite coordinating cardstock along with the paper fans from the same cardstock. Finally, cut a piece of twine from a coordinating color.
Instructions: Using yellow ink and a blending brush, softly ink the center of the card.
Using black ink/paint, add splatters using a paint brush and acrylic block
String the twine across the top of the card. Be sure not to go too high as the can cause the party hats/pennants to go above the card. At thin foam tape to the pointed end of the pennants and adhere to the twine. Also at the thin foam tape to the bottom of the paper fans. The thin foam tape helps to compensate for the height added to these pieces from the twine
Adhere the Happy Birthday from the Birthday Flip Card die set. Optionally, you can add sequins to help finish the card
I hope you enjoyed creating this card with me today.
Hello and Welcome! One of my favourite reason why I love playing with dies (especially background dies) is how versatile they can be. Here I’m using the Spider Web Slimline Background die angled to create an A6 card. I’m using heaps of colour to contrast it against the black spiders and the angle of the card draws you into the spiders! Here’s how I made it…
Step 1: Adhere clear double sided adhesive to the back of several coloured pieces of card stock.
Step 2: Die cut the slimline die, repeat this for the remaining coloured pieces of card stock.
TIP: To avoid wastage think of other layouts that you could use the remaining die cuts for. As you are die cutting the slimline die 5-6 times, there is potential to create many more cards!
Step 3: Remove the adhesive backing and adhere the outline of the web to an A6 card front. Next, use the negative die cuts from the other pieces of paper, remove the adhesive backing, and adhere these in place as shown in the image below.
TIP: Adhering clear double sided adhesive to the back of each card stock before die cutting, save you time (and glue)!
Step 4: Continue to do this until all the negative space has been filled. Trim any excess over lapping card stock.
Step 5: Die cute 5x spiders. Adhere clear jewelry thread (15cm long) to the back of two spiders, add a foam dot, and then adhere another spider to hide the thread on the spider.
Step 6: Take the thread and adhere it to the back of your card front as shown below. Next adhere your card front to an A6 card base.
Step 7: Stamp the sentiment, die cut and adhere to the card front. Embellish the card, with enamel dots and adhere the last spider to the card front.
As you can see below the very spooky spiders can dangle making this a very simple interactive card perfect for Halloween or anyone who loves creepy crawlies!
Silk Microfine Glitter – SIlver
White, Green, Pink, Teal, Blue Orange, Yellow Cardstock
Hello everyone and happy Saturday! It´s Sanna Lippert here again today with my September guest design team card project share. Who does not love some sparkle in their holiday cards? Well I sure do! Thus, for today´s project I used the gorgeous new Holiday dies by Joset and created two cards. Here they are:
Here is how I created the card(s):
Step 1: Take the slimline background die and die cut a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive with it. Then remove the negative pieces.
Step 2: Next die cut a second – plain piece – of Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet in the same size like the slimline background die.
Step 3: Take a slimline card base and adhere the solid adhesive piece onto the card and carefully remove the protective layer without touching it with your fingers.
Step 4: Now place the die cut background adhesive piece on top of the first layer of adhesive, but leave the protective cover on for now.
Step 5: Pick three colours of blue-toned Silk Microfine Glitter and pour them onto the adhesive areas creating an ombré look with the colours. Wipe any residue off with a brush and polish the layer with your finger.
Step 6: Now remove the slimline background die cut piece´s protective cover and pour Silverado Silk Microfine Glitter onto the adhesive areas. Again remove any residue glitter with a brush and then polish the layer with your finger. Also save the protective cover pieces for later – you will need the for the second card.
Step 7: Stamp a sentiment onto a whipe piece of paper with two blue tones of Distress Oxide inks and then die cut it using the Fitted Circles die cut dies. Decorate with inked banners if you want. For finishing touches add a few Craft Drops to the card.
Now use the leftover protective cover from the slimline background die to create a fun, second card.
Here are the steps you need to do:
Step 1: Ink a slimline card base using two light shades of Distress Oxide blues. Then place the protective cover leftover piece on top of the inked card. Use painters tape or washi tape to hold the pieces on place while inking. Then add a darker blue shade of Distress Oxide thru the DIY stencil.
Step 2: Die cut snowflakes from a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet and adhere them onto the inked slimline card base. Pour Pewter Silk Microfine Glitter onto the adhesive stars and polish into place. Then stamp a stentiment onto carstock and die cut with banners if you want to. Adhere on place. Decorate the edges with “faux stitching” using a white gel pen. How fast and easy you can make this second card from leftover pieces of the first one!
Here are some close-ups of the finished cards. If you want to purchase the here featured Christmas special die and stamp kit, ask your local craft store or wait until it will be available at the online store. I truly adore this kit and cannot wait to create more Holiday cards with it!
I hope you enjoyed this card set tutorial! See you again next month with another card idea. xxx, Sanna
