Mandala Christmas

November 30, 2020

Hey Everyone! It’s EK and I created two Christmas cards today using a bit of spring flavor. I just adore Mandala’s and was wondering if I could make it Charlene and Isle’s Spring Flower Mandala stencil work for a holiday card. So it turns out, you can.

Step One: Securely lay the Spring Flower Mandala stencil over a piece of trimmed watercolor paper.

Step Two: Spray several coordinating ink colors over the stencil. I used Speckled Egg, Weathered Wood, and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Spray. Before lifting the stencil up, take a second piece of trimmed watercolor paper over the extra ink.

Step Three: Carefully life the stencil and let both pieces of watercolor paper dry. You get with this technique both a positive and negative print of the stencil.

Step Four: Die cut both pieces of watercolor paper with one of the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set dies.

Step Five: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the watercolor paper to an A2 cardframe.

Step Six: Using both a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock, stamp images from both Oh the Joy of Christmas and Christmas Garden with alcohol ink friendly ink.

Step Seven: Color the images with alcohol ink. I used copics.

Step Eight: Fussy cut the images out.

Step Nine: Using both 6mm and 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the stamped images onto one of the cards.

Step Ten: Stamp a sentiment from the Classic Christmas Sentiments stamp set onto the card using both red and black ink.

Step Eleven: Finish the card using both Pearl Olive and Pearl Rose Craft Drops.

Step Twelve: Repeat steps nine through eleven using the other images and card.

Let us know in the comments below if you think the Spring Flower Mandala worked as a Christmas Card. Until then, happy crafting!

A Way With Words Cardmaking

You Are Perfect

July 25, 2020

IMG_0404Hey Friends!  It’s EK Gorman, and I popping in today to share with you a new card tutorial.  Have you ever found that your die is too big for the size card you want to create?  I just adore Suzanne’s Cannon’s A Way With Words Wreath & Elements die, but it really is meant to adhere to a project larger than 6×6 inches.  However, my favorite card size to work with is A2 (4.25×5.5 inches), so the die just doesn’t fit.  But today I am sharing a cool and easily solution to make the over sized die look like it was meant to be.

IMG_0397Step One:  Die cut the Way With Words Wreath & Elements die set out of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.  You do not need to die cut the full die.

IMG_0399Step Two:  Die cut the floral piece that is meant to be layered under the Wreath flowers.  Color the piece with ink.  I used Abandoned Coral.  Adhere with Kids Choice Glue under the die cut wreath.

IMG_0398Step Three:  Trim a piece of Watercolor Paper to 4.25×5.5 inches.  Spray the watercolor paper with liquid watercolor in two coordinating colors.  I used both an orange and yellow spray ink from Tattered Angel.  Let dry or set with a heat gun.  Splash the inked cardstock with the lighter ink to create more visual interest.

IMG_0400Step Four:  Die cut the sprayed ink paper with the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set.

IMG_0401Step Five:  Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the watercolor paper to an A2 card frame.  Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the wreath, letting it hand off the edge.  Trim off the excess.

IMG_0402Step Six:  Die cut from 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock the piece of the You Are Perfect die set.  Leave the ‘you are’ white, but color the ‘perfect’ with an ombre effect.  I used both Canddied Apple and Abandon Coral Distress Oxide to create this effect.

IMG_0403Step Seven:  Adhere the sentiment to the cardstock using Kids Choice Glue.  Let it over lap the wreath.

IMG_0405I just love how you can get a whole new look using just a section of this beautiful die.  Do you ever trim your dies so they can fit smaller projects?  Let us know in the comments below.  Until then, Happy Crafting!

Step Two. Die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Four. Die cut the Flourish Frame from the Flourish Frame die out of a piece of black cardstock.

Step Five. Die cut the Stars Spray from the Butterflies & Stars Spray die out of Sunflower Soft Finish Cardstock. Choose a total of nine stars.

Step Six. Adhere the Flourished Frame to the 4″ stitched rectangle.

Step Seven. Foam square the 3 1/2″ stitched rectangle to the middle of the 4″ stitched rectangle.

Step Eight. Place the 2 1/2″ stitched rectangle in the middle of the 3 1/2″ stitched rectangle. Adhere three stars in the top right corner underneath the 2 1/2″ stitched rectangle. Adhere two stars in the bottom left corner underneath the 2 1/2″ stitched rectangle. Adhere the remaining four stars as desired on the 2 1/2″ stitched rectangle. Foam square the 2 1/2″ stitched rectangle to the middle of the 3 1/2″ stitched rectangle.

Step Nine. To finish the card, cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4″ x 10 1/2″, score at 5 1/4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.
