Step One. Choose two pieces of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book. From the first patterned paper, die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Indented Rectangle.

From the Zen Sentiments stamp, you’ll need the live in the moment sentiment. Apply Detail Black Ink to the stamp and stamp on the right hand side of the fishtail. Ink the edges of the fishtail using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. From the Florals 5 die, die cut the leaf five times out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a waterbrush and Watercolours, colour the five leaves.

Step Nine. Adhere the elegant ornament to the left hand side of the 3″ rectangle as desired. Adhere the 3/4″ fishtail 7/8″ from the bottom and 3/4″ from the left of the 3″ rectangle.

Step Ten. Adhere a extra large, large, medium and small flower together. For the other two flowers, adhere a large, medium and small flower together. Adhere a centre to each flower. To finish the flowers, shape the flowers as desired.

Step Eleven. Adhere two leaves at the top left side of the ornament. Adhere two leaves in the bottom right side of the ornament. Adhere the remaining leaf to the middle left side of the ornament.

Step Twelve. Foam square the large flower to the middle left side of the ornament. Adhere the other two flowers as desired around the large flower.

Step Thirteen. To finish the wall hanging, punch two holes at the top of the wall hanging. Tie a piece of black twine through the two holes to create the hanger.

Cardmaking Inspiration from the Design Team Joset Designs

Hip, Hop, Hello

March 11, 2021

Hi Friends, it’s EK. I don’t know about you, but with spring on the horizon, I am just craving outside and nature. I thought I would dive right into the season with the super cute Frog die set and some copic coloring.

Step One: Die cut the Frog die set out of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Color the pieces with alcohol markers. I used copic marker G21, G82, G24, and YG67.

Step Two: Color the Frog accent pieces. I used Y00 and Y11 for the eyes, W5 and W7 for the ‘black’ bits, and R22 and R24 for the tongue.

Step Three: Using a liquid adhesive, adhere the Frog pieces. I used Kids Choice Glue.

Step Four: Die cut and color the pond pieces and lily pad from the Frog dies set. I used BG70, BG72, BG75 and BG79 for the pond and G24, G28, and G29 for the lily pad.

Step Five: Blend ink onto a trimmed piece of cardstock into an ombre design. I used Speckled Egg, Stormy Sky, and Faded Jeans Distress.

Step Six: Die cut a frame from 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. I used both the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set and Fitted Indented Rectangle die set.

Step Seven: Using 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the frame onto the ombre background. Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive adhere the background onto an A2 card frame.

Step Eight: Using both liquid adhesive and 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the pond, lily pad and frog onto the card.

Step Nine: Add a sentiment from the Prince & Frog Sentiment stamp set to the card frame in blue ink. I used Fade Jeans Distress Oxide.

Step Ten: Add frog prints from the Prince & Frog Sentiment stamp set to the corners of the frame.

I hope you are as excited about spring as I am. Let me know in the comments below which of the ECD dies reminds you of spring the most. Until then, happy crafting.

Butterfly Flourish

February 27, 2021

Hey Friends, it’s EK. There is nothing I love more when die cutting when I can make two cards with one cut. I adore when you can use both the positive and negative of the die cut to create two coordinating and yet seperate cards. I think they make great little gifts. Today I am creating two cards using Suzanne’s Butterfly Flourish die set.

Step One: Trim a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches. Blend ink onto the cardstock. I used Dusty Concord, Victorian Velvet and Tattered Rose Distress Inks.

Step Two: Die cut the cardstock using the large and small butterfly from the Butterfly Flourish die set. Save all the die cut pieces.

Step Three: Die cut the cardstock again using the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set. Save the boarder die cut.

Step Four: Using 10mm and 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive adhere the negative die cut to an A2 card frame.

Step Five: Place the large positive butterfly die cut back into the frame. Using liquid adhesive, glue the excess die cut pieces back into the empty spaces. I used Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step Six: Carefully lift the positive die cut out of the adhered sections.

Step Seven: Using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the extra piece of die cut from the frame onto the edges of a second A2 card frame. Using liquid adhesive, adhere the butterflies. Spray both cards with a clear shimmer craft spray. I used Sheer Shimmer Spray in Frost.

Step Eight: On both card frames stamp a sentiment from Suzanne’s Soar Collection stamp set in a coordinating ink color. I used Dusty Concord Distress Oxide.

Step Nine: Add White Craft Drops to both cards. Let Dry.

Here is the finished card using the positive butterfly die cut and the negative frame die cut.

Here is the card using the negative butterfly die cut and the positive frame die cut.

Let me know in the comments below which of the two cards is your favorite. Until then, happy crafting.


Cardmaking Charlene Stamps Craft Drops Stamping

Stamped ‘Printed’ Paper

February 25, 2021

Hey Friends! It’s EK, and I have a little secret to confess. I don’t buy much printed paper or cardstock. I know…gasp. The truth is when I do buy printed paper, I tend to hoard it and never use it for fear of wasting it. So, to prevent the build up of unused paper, I simply don’t buy it. But that leaves a lot of my crafting projects pretty bland. So I simply stamp my printed papers, and then I always get what I want. And frankly I have found that designer Ilse and Charlene’s stamps are perfect for my stamped ‘printed’ paper.

Step One: Pick two pieces of coordinating cardstock and die cut it with the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set so it can be layered. I went ahead and die cut the centers out of my base pieces so that I didn’t waste good paper.

Step Two: On the largest base piece, blend ink over the paper using the Story Telling stencil. I used Tea Dye Distress Oxide because it was only a shade darker than the paper and would be subtle.

Step Three: On the smaller base piece, I hand stamped floral and fauna from the Spring Fling stamp set. I used both Abandoned Coral and Crushed Olive Distress Oxide to create this print.

Step Four: Adhere the two layers together using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Adhere the base layers to an A2 card frame.

Step Five: On the large focal panel, hand stamp images from both the Spring Fling stamp set and the Words & Layers stamp set. Again I used Abandoned Coral and Crushed Olive Distress Oxide to coordinate the ‘paper’ with the layer below.

Step Six: On the smallest die cut panel, pull out the Story Telling stencil again and the original ink color and blend the ink through the cut outs.

Step Seven: Adhere the two smaller die cuts to the larger two with 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive forming the layers of the card.

Step Eight: To finish the card, stamp an image from the Poppy Dream stamp set onto some watercolor paper. I used Tea Dyed Distress Oxide.

Step Nine: Using some coordinating water-soluble ink, watercolor in the poppy. I used both Abandoned Coral and Crushed Olive Distress Oxide.

Step Ten: Fussy cut out the image and adhere it to the card frame using a liquid adhesive.

Step Eleven: Using a stamping platform, stamp the sentiment onto the card from the Words & Layers stamp set. I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink and adore how the letting of the sentiment matches the style of the stencil.

Step Twelve: Finish the card by adding Transparent Crystal Craft Drops to both the flower petals and the sentiment. Let Dry.

And just check out how gorgeous the floral image becomes with the Craft Drops on it. It turns out stunning!

So what do you think? Do you like my hand stamped ‘printed’ paper? Let me know in the comments below.

Until then, happy crafting.

A Flourished Christmas

November 28, 2020

Hi Friends! It’s EK and I am popping in with a trio of cards featuring A Way with Words Flourished Christmas Minis 2. These three cards were all using the same techniques but ended up with different looks due to the different A Way With Words sentiments I picked.

Step One: Using 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock, blend water soluble ink over the paper. I used Distress Oxides. Splatter wet ink over the cardstock. Add a spray of Shimmer Spray.

Step Ten: Peel and stick the sentiments to the card frames.

Step Eleven: Add Silk Microfine Glitter to the sentiments. I used Sea Glass Silk Microfine Glitter for the sentiment and Cook Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter for the star.

I used Bright Cranberry Silk Microfine Glitter for the flourish card.

I used Imperial Garnet Silk Microfine Glitter for the sentiment on tree card, Sea Glass Silk Microfine Glitter for the ornaments, and Solar Gold Silk Microfine Glitter for the star.
