Imagine Wall Hanging

August 4, 2020

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 Four. Die cut the right Ornate Gateway die out of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of the gateway using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

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

Step Six. Die cut one of the blooming branches from the Blooming Branches die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the other bloom out of a piece of book page.

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.

Book Mark Greeting Card

July 19, 2020

Hello friends, it’s Sandy Diller here with a YouTube inspired project. I saw this card – book mark done by Jennifer McGuire and decided to make one putting my own spin on it. With school officially closed for the summer, reading is even more important for our kidos. Any child would love to receive this fun card that encourages reading.

The book mark simply pulls out of the front of the card and is ready for a favorite book.

Who wouldn’t love to find this on their page?

I began by cutting the Parrot from white Soft Finish Cardstock and then adding the colors (Distress Oxide Inks). I used blending brushes from Picket Fence Studio but you could do this using whatever you have. By adding the color this way you get some shading in the area that you want.

Assemble Parrot.

This is a 5.5″ square card so the base was cut 5.5″ X 11″ and then creased in the center. Using the Indented Squares die set, cut one large (5.25″ square) and two smaller ( 3.25″ square).

A square is needed for the small panel that has an opening for the book mark. The decorative panel for this card is 3.25″ so a 3.50″ panel is needed. Cut a square that is 2 times larger than the desired panel. The square we want is 3.50″ so a 7″ square is needed. Cut the 7″ square in half creating two triangles (only one is needed for this card). Score the triangle at 3.5″ on each side.

Fold the triangle into a square and add a panel to both sides.

The larger square should cut down the center in order to hold the book mark.

Add the Parrot to the front panel of the square with the opening on either side, it is shown on the left side here.

Stamp sentiment of your choice on the bottom of the card. Slide the open side of the book mark straddling the cut in the card.

Attach to card base. Decorate the inside or simply write your message.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed this fun project.

Seasons Greetings Card

December 5, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Seasons Greetings Card.

I love creating with Krista Schneider’s stamps as there are fabulous designs and are the perfect images to add to any project you’re working on. You’ll want to read below as I have a tutorial for you on how to recreate my card at home!

Step One. Choose a piece of Christmas patterned paper. Die cut a 4 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of the paper. Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut a 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Three. Die cut a 3 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to some of the circles from the Circle Background and stamp randomly onto the square. Reapply ink as needed to the stamp. Sprinkle Golden Rod Molten Dimensions Embossing Powder overtop of the circles. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the Words 5 – Winter Wishes die, die cut the Seasons Greetings sentiment out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of the sentiment.

Step Five. Next, you’ll need the Poinsettia Stamp Set. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the poinsettia stamp and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the berry sprig stamp and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Reapply ink two more times to the berry sprig stamp and stamp on the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the holly branch stamp and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Reapply ink to the holly branch stamp and stamp on the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the pine branch stamp and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Reapply ink two more times to the pine branch stamp and stamp on the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.Colour the images in using a waterbrush and Tombow Markers 847, 249, 177, 026 and 969. Die cut the images out using the coordinating Poinsettia Dies. Ink the edges of the images using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. Adhere the emboss square to the black soft finish cardstock square. Foam square the black soft finish square to the patterned paper square.

Step Seven. Adhere the holly branches, pine branches and berry sprigs as desired in behind the poinsettia. Foam square the poinsettia to the middle of the embossed square.

Step Eight. Adhere the Seasons Greetings sentiment to the right side of the poinsettia. To finish the card, cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4 3/4″ x 9 1/2″, score at 4 3/4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Celebrate The Season

December 2, 2019

The 2019 Holiday Season is in full swing. That means lots of cards and gifts and, if you’re like me, you sometimes need a gift or card in a hurry –– this is just for you.

It’s Sandy and I have two quick and easy projects to share with you today. I like to get the most value possible from my crafting supplies, so today I will be showing you how I made a stencil using the Snowflake die set and how I used it to make a card and a gift tag.

I began by cutting the Snowflake die, using only the center portion of the die – you don’t need the outside edge, from a sheet of transparent film, the kind used for presentations (shown below). This works well because I’m using a wafer thin die but a thin packaging material could work also.

I cut the 8.5″ X 11″ sheet in half to fit in my die cutting machine and then cut the snowflake directly in the center. I made two stencils using the large and medium snowflake.

This is a 5.5″ square card so the appropriate size Stitched Indented Square was used along with the Stitched Rounded Square that is one size larger. You could easily make this card any size you prefer using these die sets.

After securing the stencil to the paper with some low tack tape, I began adding the color using a circulare motion in the center. The Picket Fence brushes were used here but a color blender could be used as well.

The second color was added using the same method. The colors I used are Distress Oxide Inks, Broken China and Wilted Violet.

I covered the entire panel using the same method.

The panels were layered together and ribbon was added with a cute little bow.

The word “Celebrate” was stamped and embossed using white embossing powder and then cut out using the banner die.

The banner was added to the ribbon and then all panels were added to the white card base. The corners of the card were rounded to match the rounded squares on the card.

For this clean and simple tag – I used the same stenciling technique and then added some sequines for a little bling. “Cheers” was added to give a festive feeling to the tag. Now I’m ready to party, how about you?

Thanks for joining me and HAPPY HOLIDAYS,

S@ndy
