Summer Strawberries

October 25, 2020

Hello and Welcome! Samantha here today, sharing this fun summer strawberry card. This is one of Elizabeth Craft Designs new releases which I paired up with the Beach Sentiments stamp set. I’ve had glimpses of hot summer weather and it’s put me in the mood to share this inspiration with you.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Cut a card front using light pink card measuring 10.5cm x 15.5cm.

Step 2: Die cut the strawberries die with the following pieces of card stock:

Stems: Light green card

Leaves: Dark blue/green card

Strawberries: Various shades of pink card and corrugated pink cardstock

Strawberry Leaf: Dark Green corrugated card

Flowers: Light pink card

Step 3: Arrange and adhere the green stems onto the card front, leaving room for the sentiment.

Step 4: Stamp the sentiment using black ink.

Step 5: Optional: Add machine stitched detail.

Step 6: Arrange and adhere the 3x large leaves onto the card front.

Step 7: Use foam tape to adhere the strawberries/Strawberry leaves onto the card front – arranged in a way that they appear to be dangling off their leaves.

Step 8: Embellish the card with the light pink flowers, a few sequins and a pink twine bow. Adhere the card front to an A6 card base.

Step 9: Lastly, adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to a small piece of cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Silver). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Use this glitter card to die cut the small circles that adhere to the middle of each flower.

It’s a very happy card and the pink strawberries (versus red) are a nice compliment to the blue/greens in this card. Hope you enjoyed my card tutorial today.

Happy Crafting!

Just Bee-cause

June 26, 2016

jacky-post2

It’s Jacky here. For my project today I have created a Stand Up Card using the new Dotted Scallop Circles and Ovals and Bead Strings 2 dies from Els Van de Burgt Studio. I have also used the Strawberries die set and clear stamps from Joset Designs.

Here’s how I created my card:

Step 1: Cut a piece of Olive Twist Soft Finish Cardstock measuring 5″ x 11″. Score at 3″ and 5-1/2″. Fold along score lines. Lightly score at 8-1/4″ but do not fold.

Step 2: Cut a piece of Celadon Green Soft Finish Cardstock of 2 ½” x 5″. Adhere the piece to the bottom of the card base.

Step 3: Using one of the Bead Strings 2 cut 3 bead strips in Olive Twist Soft Finish Cardstock backed with Clear Double Sided Adhesive prior to cutting.

Step 4: Die cut one Dotted Scallop Circle from White Soft Finish cardstock using the smallest Dotted Scallop Circle in the set. Use black ink to stamp ‘Just Bee-cause” onto the circle.

Step 5: Die cut one Stitched Oval from White Soft Finish Cardstock using the third largest die in the set.

Step 6: Die cut one Dotted Scallop Oval from Celadon Green Soft Finish Cardstock using the second largest die in the set.

Step 7: To create the Strawberries: Die cut one large solid strawberry and one small solid strawberry from Sunflower Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut one large and one small strawberry stamen and one large and one small strawberry overlay from White Soft Finish Cardstock backed with Clear Double Sided Adhesive prior to cutting. Using a Mini Ink Blending Tool to apply the ink, color overlays with Barn Door; color stamens with Mowed Lawn Ink. (Clean the tool between colors.) When ink is dry, assemble strawberries and adhere to card front as shown.

Step 8: To create the leaves: Die cut two strawberry leaves from White Soft Finish Cardstock. Color the leaves with Mowed Lawn Ink applied with a Mini Ink Blending Tool. For best results, work on top of a non-stick craft mat (or the leftover backing of an adhesive sheet) and start making circular motions with the inked tool while it is on the mat, working toward the edge of the cardstock and then onto the shape (edge to center so the darkest ink is at the outer areas). Tip: Use light hand pressure. You can always add more ink as needed.

Step 9: To create the bees: Die cut two bee bodies from black and yellow Velvet Adhesive Sheets. Die cut wings from White Soft Finish Cardstock. The bee with the open wings will go on the bottom Celadon Green Color piece to create the Stand-up Helper card. Refer to the photo.

Step 10: Assemble card – Adhere the white Stitched Oval to the Green Dotted Scallop Oval.  Adhere the strawberries,  leaves and one bee to the white oval. Adhere the main Oval panel to the lower half of the front of the card. Use 3D tape to add dimension to the small strawberry.  Add Bead Strings accents. Add the second bee as explained in step 9.

I hope you enjoy this project and have a wonderful Sunday!

Jacky.

Strawberries Collage

Hi there! It’s Marsha here today with a fun collage idea!

Marsha Valk | Elizabeth Craft Designs: Strawberries CollageThe strawberries in my garden are not quite ready to harvest yet, but these strawberry die cuts are just as sweet!

I started this project with a card in mind, but my collage turned out so pretty that I just couldn’t bear to cut it up. I decided to put it in a frame and now I have a happy Summer decor piece instead!

Strawberry Thank You Card

May 6, 2016

Good morning everyone, it’s Joset here. Last week I created a card using the Strawberry die set in combination with the Accordion Fancy Label and Fancy Frame Edges. Instead of an interactive card I decided to use the Accordion Fancy Label die to create a flat 5″ square card with a pretty border. Today’s card is slightly different but it does use the same dies. Let me show you how I created the card.

Shimmer Sheetz Love & Leaves Card

April 17, 2016

By Judi Kauffman

Hello, everyone! It’s Judi Kauffman, back as today’s guest designer with a card that would be perfect for a wedding or un-Valentine (those times when romance is in the air, but it’s not February…). The starring roles are played by the word ‘Love’, a die from Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words collection, and my new best friend – Joset Design’s strawberry leaves die. Supporting roles are played by the 2.75” Stitched Square die and a .25” circle die from one of the Tags & More sets.

Judi Loves Berries: A Strawberry Tutorial

April 3, 2016

By Judi Kauffman

Hello, all! It’s Judi Kauffman, back as today’s Guest Designer. I love strawberries, so imagine my glee when I saw the Joset Designs Strawberries die set. It’s irresistible, just like the berries that will soon arrive at the farmers’ markets and make their way to our kitchens. With ice cream, starring in shortcake, chocolate-dipped, sprinkled with powdered sugar, or straight out of the box – this is a fruit that defines summer and happiness!

A Dozen Shimmer Sheetz Easter Eggs

March 20, 2016

I like to make flat egg-shaped Shimmer Sheetz ornaments to send in my Easter cards. Sometimes I’ll use Elizabeth Craft Designs Easter Egg outline peel-offs as the starting point. This year it’s the new Joset Designs Easter Eggs die set that stole my heart.

As always, I’ve worked within a quirky color palette – Fire Opal, Australian Opal, Turquoise, and Ruby Gemstone and Bronze Metallic among my choices, but all of the eggs could be switched to bright hues or soft pastels. Shimmer Sheetz is available in over 20 colors including Iridescent in two shades of pink, white, purple, green, yellow, bright orange and red. An Iridescent Sampler Pack might be a fun way to have lots of choices.

Reminders: Shimmer Sheetz is waterproof and colorfast, as are the Glitter Dots and other peel-offs used for the eggs. These ornaments (except for the strawberry eggs) can be hung in the garden as well as displayed indoors. A Metal Adaptor Plate or Precision Base Plate is required for die cutting Shimmer Sheetz.

It’s Els here today to share photos from a wonderful class I took at Doe@ding with Anita Izendoorn on February 13 while I was in the Netherlands. We made several projects including a pull card and a strawberry-filled circle. And since the class was timed for Valentine’s Day, there were cookies, chocolate, coffee and tea – as much as we wanted!

Hello everyone,

It’s Joset here today sharing this yummy strawberry-filled card with you. Who doesn’t adore strawberries and especially their bright red color? I love them all year round!
