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!

Have A Magical Day Card

June 3, 2020

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Lately I seem to be in a rainbow mode so I decided that my balloons would have a rainbow colour theme. I absolutely loved the results and loved all the burst of colours. Below you will find the steps to create your own rainbow of balloons card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 4 1/4” x 5 1/2”. Diecut The Cardstock with Stitched Rectangles and Frame It – Stitched Circles to create a window panel. If you don’t have the Frame It then use Fitted Circles. The only difference is that you won’t have a Stitched Circle along the frame.

Step 3 – Adhere any DIY background to the card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. I used Alcohol Inks on Yupo Paper to create an ocean feel background.

Step 4 – Stamp Build Your Own Sentiments 1 using Versafine Onyx Black Ink to the center bottom of the panel created from Step 2. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 5 – Diecut Octopus and Party Accessories (Balloons x6, Balloon Strings And Party Hat) using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Colour in all the diecut pieces using Alcohol Markers. I used Spectrum Noir Classique Markers. Assemble all the pieces and adhere to card using Kids Choice Glue and Foam Tape. TIP: I placed all my assembled pieces loosely on my card front and when I was satisfied with the placement I used Glad Press’ N Seal to keep the placement. I adhered glue to the Balloons and Foam Tape to the Octopus on the back side then turned it around and placed back to the card front and removed the Glad Press’ N Seal.

This card can be used for several occasions by changing the colours and sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Happy Birthday Card

March 7, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here! It’s hard to believe that March is already here and Spring is only 12 days away. With Spring on my mind, I created this very spring-like Happy Birthday Card.

To create my card, I’ve used a variety of dies from Suzanne Cannon! To compliment the products from Suzanne Cannon, I’ve also used dies from Els van de Burgt Studio and Joset Designs. Read below as I have a tutorial for you on how to recreate my card.

Step One. Die cut a 4″ and a 3″ Stitched Rectangle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the rectangles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Choose two spring themed patterned papers. From the first paper, die cut 4 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle. From the second paper, die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle. Ink the edges of the papers using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. From a third piece of coordinating pattern paper, die cut the Flourished Frame out of it. Ink the edges of the frame using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. Die cut the Happy Birthday 3 die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Walnut Stain Distress Ink over the entire surface of the words.

Step Five. From the Trio of Leaves, choose two leaves. Die cut the two leaves out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Shabby Shutters Distress Ink over the entire surface of the leaves.

Step Six. Die cut the same two leaves out of another piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of the leaves.

Step Seven. Choose two of the Large Flowers from the Large Flower set. Choose two more coordinating patterned papers. Die cut the one large flower twice out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut the same large flower twice out of the other patterned paper. Die cut the second large flower twice out of the patterned paper you just used. Ink the edges of the flowers using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. Choose two small flowers from the Small Flower Set. You’ll also need two of the patterned papers you’ve already used. Die cut one of the flowers twice out of patterned paper. Die cut the other flower out of the other patterned paper. Ink the edges of the flowers using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Nine. Die cut the centers from the Small Flowers out of one of the patterned papers. Ink the edges of the centers using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Ten. Adhere the 4″ rectangle to the 4 1/2″ rectangle. Adhere the 3″ rectangle to the 3 1/2″ rectangle. Foam square the 3 1/2″ rectangle to the 4″ rectangle.

Step Eleven. Adhere the flourished frame to the 3 1/2″ rectangle. Adhere the Happy Birthday sentiment to the 3″ rectangle as desired.

Step Twelve. Adhere the flowers as desired. Each flower will need two large flowers, one small flower and a center.

Step Thirteen. Trim one of the light green and one of the dark green leaves as desired for the bottom right corner of the card front. Adhere the two trimmed leaves together. Adhere the leaves in the bottom right hand corner of the card front. Adhere one large flower over top of the leaves.
