Sneak Peek: Just For You Gift Box

August 26, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Just For You Gift Box.

Today’s project is an exciting one as it is giving you a sneak peek of the new Flower Collection designed by Anita Izendoorn. To create my Just For You Gift Box, I’ve used a couple of the dies from the new Flower Collection as well as a die from Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my gift box at home.

Step One. You’ll need a piece of sturdy cardboard. I used a piece that had a white coating on the top. Die cut the Pizza Box, from the Pizza Box die out of the cardboard.

Step Two. Die cut the scalloped square from the Pizza Box die out of a piece of vellum.

Step Three. Choose a piece of patterned paper. Die cut the flower cut out from the Pizza Box die out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of the cut out piece using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. Choose a piece of coordinating patterned paper that goes with patterned paper you just used to die cut the flower cut out. Die cut the 2 1/2″ circle from the Pizza Box die out of the coordinating patterned paper. Die cut the stitched circle from the Pizza Box die out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of both circles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. Die cut two of the single Ginko leaves once out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the remaining Ginko leaf twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Lightly blend Shabby Shutter Distress Ink using a blending tool with foam over all four leaves.

Step Six. From the Words 2 – Thinking of You die , you’ll need the For You Words. Die cut the words out of the same patterned paper that you die cut the flower cut out from.

Step Seven. Assemble your pizza box.

Step Eight. Adhere the scalloped square to the top of the pizza box. Adhere the flower cut out square to the middle of the scalloped square.

Step Nine. Adhere the stitched circle to the 2 1/2″ circle. Foam square the 2 1/2″ circle to the middle of the flower cut out square. Adhere the four Ginko leaves as desired on the left hand side of the circles.

Step Ten. To finish the gift box, adhere the For You words to white stitched circle as desired.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my For You Gift Box.

Hello Card

August 20, 2020

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

To create my Hello Card, I’ve used a variety of dies from the Sidekick Essentials Collection and Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my card at home.

Step One. Choose two or three pieces of patterned paper that all coordinate together. From one of the patterned papers, die cut a 4″ Stitched Indented Rectangle out of the patterned paper. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut a 3 3/4″ Fitted Indented Rectangle out of a second piece of patterned paper. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Either use a third piece of patterned paper or flip over the patterned paper you just used and die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Indented Rectangle. 1/2″ from the bottom on the right hand side, tear the paper a bit into the middle. 1/2″ from the left at the top left hand side, tear the paper down a bit. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the Sidekick Essentials 8 die, die cut the large stitched rectangle out of a piece of vellum.

Step Five. Die cut a 3/4″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtail out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Cut the fishtail down to 2 3/4″. Distress the edges of the fishtail. Ink the edges of the fishtail using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. From the Sidekick Essentials 7 die, die cut the leaf bunch and two single leaves out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Seven. From the Words 2 – Thinking of You die, die cut the Hello word out of black cardstock.

Step Eight. Adhere the 3 1/2″ stitched indented rectangle to the 3 3/4″ fitted indented rectangle.

Step Nine. Adhere the vellum stitched rectangle in the middle of the 3 1/2″ stitched indented rectangle. Adhere the leaf bunch to the bottom middle of the 3 1/2″ stitched indented rectangle. The leaf bunch will sit overtop of the vellum piece. Adhere the other two single leaves as desired around the leaf bunch.

Step Ten. Staple the fishtail 3/8″ from the bottom and all the way to the left hand side of the 3 3/4″ fitted indented rectangle. Adhere the Hello word to the middle of the fishtail.

Step Eleven. Foam square the 3 3/4″ fitted indented rectangle to the middle of the 4″ stitched indented rectangle.

Step Twelve. Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5 1/4″ x 8″, score at 4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Hello Card.

Miss You

August 13, 2020

IMG_0804Hey Friends!  It’s EK, popping in today to share a new card making project using Ilse and Charlene’s stamps and dies.  I have seen so many amazing projects using these products in both planners and art journals, and was wondering if I could create something easily awesome on an A2 card.  With the combination of ECD’s Watercolor Palette, I think i came up with something pretty sweet!

IMG_0782Step One:  One a piece of Watercolor Paper, watercolor an ombre of blue from the Watercolor Palette.  Let dry.

IMG_0783Step Two:  On another piece of Watercolor Paper, stamp using watercolor safe ink several images from the Spring Fling stamp set.

IMG_0784Step Three:  Using the Watercolor Palette and a very loose hand, watercolor the stamped images.

IMG_0785Step Four:  Fussy cut out the images.

IMG_0786Step Five:  Using the Bubbles die, die cut the ombre watercolor paper.

IMG_0787Step Six:  Adhere both the positive and negative Bubbles die cut onto an A2 card frame using a liquid adhesive.  I used Kids Choice Glue.

IMG_0788Step Seven: Adhere the fussy cut Spring Fling floral images onto the card frame.

IMG_0789Step Eight:  Die cut the sentiment from the ombre watercolor paper using the Words 2 -Thinking of You die set.  I die cut each word three times so that the sentiment would have dimension.  Adhere the words on top of each other.

IMG_0790Step Nine:  Adhere the sentiment onto the card frame.

IMG_0805I Just love how the Bubbles die creates such a unique and interesting background with very little effort.  If you haven’t check out the full line of Ilse and Charlene’s stamps and die make sure you pop over.  It isn’t just for planners or art journals.  It is perfect for all your crafting projects!

May 4, 2020

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Today’s card is inspired with our current situation globally. With the lockdown we are all thinking of the day we can visit our family and friends. Below are the steps to create your own Thinking Of You Card.

Step 3 – Trim Rusty Weathered Patterned Paper to 3 1/2” x 8 1/2”. Diecut Frame It Stitched Circles 3 times. Start in the middle and then diecut top then bottom for 3 windows. If you don’t have Frame It Stitched Circles you can use Stitched Circles.

Step 4 – Diecut Blooming Branches using Green Cardstock 4 times. Randomly trim and place along with windows from the background created from Step 3. Adhere tips to the backside of the background using Kids Choice Glue. Adhere to whole panel to the card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 5 – Diecut Monkey 3 times using Earth Tone colours (browns and taupe). Assemble and adhere to card using Kids Choice Glue.

Sunset Scene Card

January 8, 2020

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Before I start I want to wish you all a Happy New Year. All the best for a healthy, prosperous and crafty year ahead.

One of my favourite dies last year was the Village Edges. I showcased it to create a Holiday Scene, but today I want to show you how versatile it is for any occasion. Below are the steps to create your own Sunset Scene 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 horizontal side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”. Apply Distress Oxide Inks using a foam applicator. Starting from the bottom working upwards apply Wild Honey, Ripe Persimmon, Fired Brick and Dusty Concord. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Diecut Village Edges using Black Cardstock. Adhere the bottom layer using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive leaving a 1/4” border. Do not adhere the top layer yet.

Step 4 – Diecut Words 2 – Thinking Of You 3 times using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere Kids Choice Glue and stack up the Diecuts. Apply Distress Oxide Ripe Persimmon Completely over the top layer, apply Fired Brick just to the top edge. Sprinkle Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it with a Heat Tool. Repeat this 2 more times but ink with Versamark. Adhere the sentiment using Kids Choice Glue to top layer of the Village Edges.

Step 5 – Here I did some stamp surgery to get the exact Sentiment. Stamp Safari Saying “Have A” using Versamark. In another sentiment I stamped just the “N”. Next stamp “Birthday” again using Versamark. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and heat set it with a Heat Tool. Adhere the top layer Village Edges to the card using Foam Tape.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the Village Edges used in another occasion. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Fall Flower Lace Frame Card

September 10, 2018
Fall Flower Lace Frame Card

Hi everyone! It’s Elena today. Fall is almost upon us so I wanted to try creating a brightly-colored fall card using the very intricate Flower Lace Frame from ModaScrap. I have added colored paper behind these kinds of dies before but never with hand shading coloring and I wanted to see what would happen. The result reminds me of Talavera or Majolica pottery with the bright colors, spacing between motifs and the overall pattern. What do you think? Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading

Hexagon Leaves

July 30, 2018

Hi Everyone! Marilyn here with a card I made using the Stitched Hexagon, Trio of Leaves and Words 2 die sets. You could use any sentiment for this card so it is versatile and would work for many different occasions. Please forgive the glare in some of the photos – I recently purchased a glass mat and didn’t realize how badly the light reflected until I was watermarking the photos.
