Hey Friends! It’s EK and I am popping in to share with you a little just because card! In a year filled with crazy ups and downs, one of the things that has become a positive in the year is I have started sending friends and families cards just because I am thinking of them. I am not waiting for their birthday or a holiday, I am just popping a note in the mail and saying “I am Thinking of You!” So with all of these simple no reason cards heading out, I have been upping my game in types of cards I am making and I find ECD’s Ilse and Charlene line of stamps and stencils are perfect for just these moments.
Step One: Stamp and heat emboss small floral images from the Spring Fling stamp set onto a piece of trimmed 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. I used Rose Gold embossing powder.
Step Two: Using colored pencils, add a little color to the insides of the heat embossed flowers.
Step Three: Blend some ink around the edges of the cards stock. I used Victorian Velvet Distress Oxide.
Step Four: Using the Dot Dot Dot stencil, blend ink through the stencil onto the cardstock. I used Scattered Straw Distress Oxide and a dirty blending brush.
Step Five: Using the Story Telling stencil, blend a contrasting ink. I used Dusty Concord Distress Oxide.
Step Six: Stamp one of the girls from the Earthy Girls stamp set onto a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Color the image in with colored pencils. Fussy Cut out the image.
Step Seven: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, add the background cardstock to an A2 card frame. Add the trimmed girl to the card face using 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Hey Friends! It’s EK, popping in today to share a new card making project using Ilse and Charlene’s stamps and dies. I have seen so many amazing projects using these products in both planners and art journals, and was wondering if I could create something easily awesome on an A2 card. With the combination of ECD’s Watercolor Palette, I think i came up with something pretty sweet!
Step One: One a piece of Watercolor Paper, watercolor an ombre of blue from the Watercolor Palette. Let dry.
Step Two: On another piece of Watercolor Paper, stamp using watercolor safe ink several images from the Spring Fling stamp set.
Step Three: Using the Watercolor Palette and a very loose hand, watercolor the stamped images.
Step Four: Fussy cut out the images.
Step Five: Using the Bubbles die, die cut the ombre watercolor paper.
Step Six: Adhere both the positive and negative Bubbles die cut onto an A2 card frame using a liquid adhesive. I used Kids Choice Glue.
Step Seven: Adhere the fussy cut Spring Fling floral images onto the card frame.
Step Eight: Die cut the sentiment from the ombre watercolor paper using the Words 2 -Thinking of You die set. I die cut each word three times so that the sentiment would have dimension. Adhere the words on top of each other.
Step Nine: Adhere the sentiment onto the card frame.
I Just love how the Bubbles die creates such a unique and interesting background with very little effort. If you haven’t check out the full line of Ilse and Charlene’s stamps and die make sure you pop over. It isn’t just for planners or art journals. It is perfect for all your crafting projects!
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Imagine Wall Hanging.
To create my Imagine Wall Hanging, I’ve used a variety of dies, stamps and stencils from Charlene and Ilse’s Art Journal Specials Collection as well as dies from Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my wall hanging at home.
Step One. Die cut a 4 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of Black Cardstock. Distress the edges of the square.
Step Two. Die cut a 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of a piece of book page. Place the Storytelling stencil in the middle of the square. Using a palette knife and Texture Paste Opaque Matte through the stencil. Remove the stencil and allow the stenciled area to dry. Once the square is dry, distress the edges of the square. Ink the edges of the square using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Three. Die cut the Bubbles out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the entire surface of the bubbles. Sprinkle Burnt Copper Leaves embossing powder over the entire surface. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Five. From the Streetlights die, die cut the street lamp out of black cardstock.

Step Seven. Choose two of the leaves from the Spring Fling Stamp Set. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to both stamps and stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Colour the leaves in using the Watercolour Palette and a waterbrush. Once the images have dried, fussy cut them out. Ink the edges of the leaves using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Eight. Next, you’ll need the cotton stamp from the First Sights of Spring Stamp Set. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the stamp and stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Colour the cotton in using the Watercolour Palette and a waterbrush. Once the image has dried, fussy cut it out. Ink the edges of the cotton using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Nine. From the Morning Letters Stamp Set, you’ll need the letters to spell out Imagine. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to each of the letters and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish cardstock to spell the word imagine. Fussy cut the word out. Ink the edges of the word using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Ten. Adhere the 4 1/4″ stitched indented square to the 4 3/4″ stitched indented square.
Step Eleven. Adhere the bubbles to the middle of the 4 1/4″ stitched indented square. Foam square the ornate gate to the middle of the bubbles. Adhere the street lamp to the middle of the ornate gate.
Step Twelve. Adhere the first blooming branch overtop and to the left of the street lamp. Adhere the other blooming branch overtop and to the right of the street lamp. Adhere one of the stamped branches slightly overtop of the left blooming branch. Adhere the other stamped branch slightly overtop of the right blooming branch.
Step Thirteen. Foam square the cotton image to the middle of the branches making sure that you can see part of the street lamp. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the imagine word to the right side of the cotton.
Step Fourteen. Punch two holes at the top of the 4 3/4″ stitched indented square. Tie a piece of twine through the two holes to create the hanging part for your wall hanging.
