Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again today with another guest design team project share. I have a friend who loves pink and glitter and it´s soon her birthday, so I wanted to make sure her birthday card would be perfect for her. Elizabeht Craft Desings has the prefect products for this project!
Here is how I created this card:
Step 1: Cut a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock in right size and apply Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto this piece. Step 2: Die cut your own DIY stencil with Abstrack Background die cut die (or use a residue piece of the adhesive sheet from a previous project, like I did). Step 3: Apply Saffron and Pink Peony Silk Microfine Glitter thru the “stencil” onto the background. Start with Saffron and finish with Pink Peony. Step 4: Die cut a hole with Fitted Ovals die cut dies onto the background. Save the residue piece for an Easter Card.
Step 5: Die cut another DIY stencil using the Adventure Edges die cut die. Then apply yellow ink (to create a cloudy sky onto the card base) onto the background. Step 6: Die cut the Parrot from white Soft Finish Cardstock (apply Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto the back before die cutting). Ink all Parrot pieces in pink and orange Distress Ink tones. Build and adhere the Parrot into the oval area of the card. Step 7: Stamp a birthday sentiment with Build Your Own Sentiment stamp set and black stamp ink. Step 8: Add pearls to the card for additional decor (optional).
I´ve also again recorded a start-to-finish step-by-step tutorial for you to watch. I hope you enjoy it and get inspired to create fun glitter cards yourself!
Wishing you a happy, crafty day and see you again next month with another fun tutorial.

Hello everyone, it’s Sanna Lippert here again today with another card idea to share. I always keep a box of cards for various occasions ready and constantly keep on adding cards to the collection –– you never know when you need a handmade card! The cards I share today will be an addition to that particular card box.
And here is how they were made:
Step 1: Take the Adventure Edges and die cut a piece of white cardstock with the cloud edge die. Now you have a DIY stencil ready to be used! Step 2: Place the DIY stencil onto a piece of white cardstock and wipe blue stamp ink onto the background with an ink blending tool along the edge of the cloud pattern. Move a few centimeters down and create a second row of clouds. Repeat throughout the background. Step 3: Die cut grass from green Soft Finish Cardstock with the grass edge die. Adhere on place overlapping the layers.
Step 4: Take a piece of ModaScrap patterned paper from Fly & Scrap paper pack and die cut balloons from it. Adhere on place. Step 5: Apply Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto a piece of light blue Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut the balloon strings and bows from it. Adhere on place. Step 6: Stamp a sentiment with Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set stamps and black stamp ink onto white Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut into a banner or use scissors for cutting. Adhere on place and the card is done.
For the option of creating glitter balloon cards, see the end of the start-to-finish video. Also the patterned paper balloon card steps are shown on this video.
I hope I could inspire you to create fun balloon cards and make several variations of them, while you are at it!
Wishing you all a great, crafty day! See you next month again! xxx, Sanna

Hey Everyone! It is EK here and I am popping in with this fun camping hippo themed card using the new Tent die set and Hippo/Rhino die set. I am actually at Girl Scout camp this week teaching crafts to campers, so it seemed only fitting to create a girl-scout-inspired camping card today!
I snuck in a full video today sharing how I colored the die cuts using both distress inks and copic markers.
Step One: Die cut the Tent die set out of 90lb White soft finish cardstock. Color tent pieces with distress ink.
Step Two: Blend distress ink onto a 6×6 card frame using the Earth & Sky stencil and distress ink.
Step Three: Die cut the Hippo die set and color the pieces with Copic markers. Assemble the pieces with Kids Choice Glue.
Step Four: Assemble all the pieces onto the card frame using both clear Double Sided Adhesive and Kids Choice Glue. Stamp a sentiment onto the card frame using the new Build Your Own Sentiments 1.
I hope you enjoyed checking out my camping hippo. Are you camping this summer with your friends or family? Let us know in the comments below, and which of the new critters you would use to highlight you camping trip in a craft project. Until then, Happy crafting!
It’s time for June’s Sunday Stamping with Hedgehog Hollow. It’s amazing to think I have been doing Sunday Stamping for over a year now (thanks, TimeHop!). I love playing with my Elizabeth Craft Designs goodies each month and having a blog post scheduled always gives me a push to challenge myself to come up with something new.
I hope you all having a wonderful Sunday. We are definitely seeing some signs of summer in Ohio although we seemed to have skipped spring. With summer comes wedding season! We don’t have any this year, but we do have our wedding anniversary coming on Tuesday so I’m certainly feeling in the mood! Today I have a really quick and easy wedding card for you, and I love the touch of elegance it has, plus you can customize the base depending on the color theme of the wedding….

Hello there everyone, Sanna here today. Welcome to my last tutorial of the year, the last project I’ll be doing as a member of the Die Cut Design Team. It´s been a fabulous two years and I have enjoyed every minute of it. But before I tell you more about that, I´d like to share this card tutorial with you.
This card – well these cards, actually – were inspired by the recent background challenge. As you might recall, I made quite a few cards for that challenge. I love creating backgrounds for my projects with dies, stencils and stamps as well as various media. This card features one of the newest background dies and this is how I created it:
