A ‘Summer” theme card

2018-04-21 DRU Geranium

I can’t wait to be able to count on warm weather!  So my card today is a nod to Summer!  What screams summer more that blue gingham and red Geraniums.  This card could be used for any occasion by just using a different sentiment.

Here’s the steps:

Step 1: Cut all the petal pcs. 3 times for each flower. (run these pcs. 3 times through your machine with two layers of red cardstock.  Cut the leaf pcs. 3 times with two layers of green cardstock.  Add a little of 340.5 Permanent Red PanPastel to the edges of the leaves.  Assemble the 3 Geraniums by shaping and gluing.

The die set:  1019 – Susan’s Garden Geranium

Geranium Assembly Video

This video shows the geranium being assembled directly on your project which is great but not for this project.  Assemble each flower and you will slide them into and onto the Gathering basket.

Step 2:   Cut one Gathering Basket from light brown cardstock and lightly add some 780.5 Raw Umber PanPastel to bring out the basket weave embossing that happens when you cut this die:  1483 – Garden Notes – Gathering Basket

2018-04-21 15.27.33

Step 3:  Cut two Oval mats.  One using the 2nd largest die from this die set and white cardstock:  1113 – Stitched Ovals :

2016-11-26-17-11-25

Cut one using the largest die in red cardstock from this die set:  1173 – Dotted Scallop Ovals

Step 4:  Create a base card by scoring a 12 x 12″ pc. of white cardstock at 6″.  Fold at score line and trim to 6 x 6.5″.  Cut a rectangle that measures 5.75″ x 6.25″ from blue gingham cardstock.  Adhere, centered, to white base card.  Now adhere the red scallop oval, centered onto the blue gingham layer.

Step 5:  Sort of shape the gathering basket by holding it with both thumbs on the underside of the pc. and your two pointer fingers together on the right side of the pc. and centered.  Now keeping your thumbs together on the wrong side, slide your pointer to curve the pc. over your thumbs.  Glue only the lower edge of the basket to white oval as shown in the photo below.  You will glue the sides down by adding glue to the undersides and  push the sides towards the center very slightly to keep it’s 3D shape:

2018-04-21 15.28.20

Next start auditioning your flowers, petals and little blooms into and onto the basket until you like what you see and glue in place.

2018-04-21 13.19.32

Create a sentiment on your computer and cut out with the smallest die from this set:

1116 – Stitched Circles

2017-08-29 12.55.26

Ink the edges with light blue ink and adhere to basket.  You could also use a small tag and bakers twine and attach to the handle.

Well, this was a fun challenge theme because I got to use what is clearly becoming my favorite 2 die sets:  Happy Frame and Happy Frame XL by Elizabeth Craft Designs .

For this project I used the Happy Frame XL

Let’s make this card:

Step 1:  Using the Happy Frame XL die cut 4 times with heavy weight white cardstock.

2018-03-13 19.17.40

Step 2:  Attach a pc. of scrap heavy weight cardstock that’s at least 2 x 4″ to Double sided adhesive.  Secure the longest die from the below die set, sharp edge down on the adhesive side and run through your cutting machine:

2018-03-13 18.37.38

The photo above shows the 730 – Curvy Leaves die set, the stencil I made and another piece of a double sided adhesive I tried this die first as a stencil (that’s why it has ink on it) and the practice piece of cardstock that’s 1″ wide like the Happy Frame is.

Step 3: Cut the frame pcs. to 6″ long on the longest side. With your handmade stencil and stamp pad inks, stencil the Happy Frame pcs. (I applied 2 greens and a brown ink pads:

2018-03-13 18.43.13

Next, using PanPastel’s 780.5 Raw Umber, lightly with a small sponge dauber, distress the entire frame pcs. except the two outside folds as shown below in case it would affect the adhesive when you assemble the frame:

2018-03-13 19.06.36

Now assemble the frame

This is the assembly video link:   Happy Frame assembly video.

Step 4:  Size, print and color with Copic Markers this digital stamp from called “Sunflowers” Di’s Digi Stamps. 

Trim the colored print centered in a 6″ square.

I then went over the print with the same very light touch of Raw Umber PanPastel.

2018-03-14 11.47.41

Step 5:  Cut enough pcs. to make two Sunflowers from this die set (I cut the petal pcs. out 2 or 3 times for each flower just for extras, the seeds pc. twice per flower, and the leaves twice per flower) Cut the leaves from green cardstock and the petals from yellow cardstock and the seeds from dark brown cardstock:

2017-07-17 11.49.37

Sunflower Assembly video

Add color as in the assembly video and shape the parts too:

2018-03-26 14.39.41

Now as in the video build your two sunflowers right onto your assembled frame:

2018-03-26 16.32.09

Step 6:  Add 10mm (1/2″) Clear Double Sided adhesive to the edges of your 6″ colored image square on the colored side.  Now attach it to the back of the frame.

Step 7:  Create a base card by cutting a pc. of 12 x 12″ cardstock in half and scoring one of the halves at 6″.  Fold over.  My choice for base cards if I have the color on hand is Elizabeth Craft Design’s Soft finish cardstock.  I love it’s weight 100lb. and it’s colored on only one side.  When I want to stamp on the inside this is a great benefit:

If you are going to stamp a sentiment on the inside, do it now.

Step 8:  Add Clear Double Sided adhesive 10m to all four front edges of your card base.  Adhere the frame to the card.

That’s It!

Thanks so much again for having a look.  These frames are so fun.  And come back next week for another fun challenge!  Please let me know you were here by leaving a comment.  I love to read them!

C4C – 427 Cutie Patootie Challenge

C4C - 427 Little one

I decided to make an unconventional “baby card”.

I am absolutely crazy for Elizabeth Craft Designs release of their two Happy Frame die sets.  For this DT card I used this set:

2018-03-07 14.09.27

Let’s make this card:

Step 1:  I found this adorable digital stamp, at Di’s Digi Stamps. 

(You go straight to her online store by clicking on the blue link above)

2018-03-09 22.14.41

It’s called “Hello Bumblebee”.  Size, print and color the image.  I colored it with Copic Markers.  I added shading to the background with PanPastels.  Cut out your colored image with the 3rd. to the largest die in the below set on the left.  Then cut a brown mat with the 2nd to the largest die in the set on the right.  Adhere the stamped layer to the brown scalloped mat:

Step 2:  Cut out the die four times out of wood look cardstock. from the set called Happy Frame from Elizabeth Craft  Designs.  (pictured above with link to the store in blue.)  I chose a piece from this paper pack:

2018-03-07 14.10.02

Here is the assembly video: Happy Frame assembly video

Note: Cut your four frame pcs. to 6.25 x 6.25″.  Your finished frame will be a 6.25″ square.

Step 3:  Using the dies on the far right below cut two pink and two white layers for a small pink daisy and white daisy.  Repeat for a smaller daisy of each color.  Cut the circle center pc. for the daisies with the pc. shown below on the right side of the picture below:

2018-03-15 20.11.05

This set is from Docrafts and is called: Glorious Gerbera.  I added a little darker pink Copic marker from the middle out to the pink daisies.

Cut the leaves only (two of each) from this set: 1368 – Garden Notes – Dahlia:

2018-03-18 19.09.18

Cut two of the longer die from this set:

2016-03-28 13.50.59

Cut enough of the “bee parts” to make 3 bees from this set:

2017-07-17 12.19.56

Stamp the sentiment on white cardstock from this stamp set below:

2018-03-12 22.50.53

Cut out sentiment with the 2nd to the smallest die in this set from QuicKutz:

2016-07-24 12.16.08

I used PanPastels to add a little blue color to the edges.

Choose a designer paper and cut a square that measures 6.25″ x 6.25″.

2018-03-09 22.13.44

Step 4:  Adhere the designer square paper behind the wood frame.  Adhere the image stack to the center and then decorate the frame as shown.

Here’s a look at the inside of the card:

2018-03-22 21.55.27

It was made by creating a base card by scoring a pc. 12″ x 6″ pc. white cardstock at 6″.  Then fold over.  Attach two squares of the same designer paper.  Then I added charm dies, banners and the word Congratulations from these dies.

That’s it!

Thanks so much for taking a look.  I know you’re time is valuable so I appreciate it.  I can’t wait to see what you make if you choose to take the challenge!

C4C – 424 A Sweet Desert

Today is national Dessert Day!  Who knew?  My favorite dessert is ice cream.  So my Design Team card features an ice cream cone.  This card is intended to be a card to cheer someone up that needs it.

2018-02-26 C4C 424

Let’s make this card!

Step 1:  Using the die set below 1031 – Ice Cream Cone.  I cut out all the pcs. of the ice cream cone.  I cut them all out of white cardstock but you could also cut the pcs. from colored cardstock and omit the coloring step.  Either color the pcs. or assemble the ones you cut with colored cardstock:

2018-02-26 17.56.05

Step 2:  Using the largest die in set below cut out a pink cardstock oval 1173 – Dotted Scalloped Ovals:

2016-11-26-17-11-25

Step 3:  Cut out a white oval using the second largest die using this set above, 1113 – Stitched Ovals:

Step 4:  Create the sentiment for the inside on your computer and print it on 8.5 x 11″ white cardstock.  Make a base card from this printed white cardstock.  Score at 5.5″ along the long side.  Fold over and trim to 5 x 7″.

2018-02-26 17.19.47

Step 5:  Cut a pc. of designer paper the measures 4.75 x 6.75″ and adhere to the front of your base card.

Step 6:  Adhere the white oval to the pink oval and adhere them to the front of the card as shown.  Put a large foam circle under the “ice cream” and attach to the center of the ovals.  Glue down the bottom point end of the cone.

Step 7:  I used a Silhouette file for the sentiment but this could be a card for any occasion.

I also put the same plaid designer paper on the back of the card but it’s an optional step.

2018-02-27 17.09.25

That’s It!  Easy and Fast!

Thanks so much for taking a look and I hope you’ll join us in this weeks challenge!

An Easy Easter Card

 

2018-02-14 C4C bunny sketch

It’s sketch week over at Crazy4Challenges C4C-422

              C4C422 sketch      2018-02-14 C4C bunny sketch

You all know how much I love a sketch but I must admit this sketch stumped me.  It looks so easy but I couldn’t come up with an idea!  I am currently working on Easter so I wanted to use my favorite bunny stamp.  It’s from Art Impressions and is called Holiday 1-779.

2018-02-13 16.11.25

This is how I made this card.

Step 1:  Stamp on white cardstock using the above stamp.  Color with Copic Markers or Pencils.  I chose to color with copics.  (When you position the stamp give yourself about 3″ below the top of your cardstock.

Step 2:  Cut the image with the largest die from this set.

2016-07-24 12.13.19

 This step is actually two steps because these nested fishtails are too short for what I needed to fit the sketch.  Position the die on your stamped and colored image where you want the “fish tail” (bottom) of the die to end below your stamped image. Run through your cutting machine but STOP before the top (straight edge) of the die cuts.  Now move the die up to where you want the top of the die to end.  In this case that was 2″ above the image.  Now run through your cutting machine again but stop before it cuts the fishtail again.  You should now have a longer fishtail then the die. Notice that I positioned the image closer to the left of the die to allow room for the half oval in the sketch.

Step 3:  Using the stamp set below from Pink and Main, stamp both the “egg” and the “Chocolate bunny box” 3 times.  Color how you want.  I added Crystal Lacquer to the bunny boxes like they were wrapped in cellophane. After the lacquer is dried, fussy cut all the bunny box and eggs.

2018-02-13 16.12.33

2018-02-12-21-01-20.jpg

Step 4:  From the little die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs below cut the pieces for the basket, flower and grass.  I used  scrap cardstock.  Assemble the basket. Add the grass, chocolate bunny boxes and eggs as show below.  Add Prills to the little flowers. I used leftover little leaves from one of Susan Tierney Cockburn’s 1196 – Garden edge rose  flower dies as shown below:

2018-02-13 22.37.592018-02-14 15.46.16

 

Step 5:  Using the same Pink and Main Stamp as in step 3, stamp Happy Easter on white cardstock.  Cut it with the long rectangle pictured below and distress the edges with Tim Holtz “peacock feathers” Distress Ink.

2017-06-11 20.39.21

Glue the grass Strip (which is a Silhouette file to the top of this sentiment strip.

Step 6: Cut the 3 bunnies from this die set below using 3 different brown colors.  I used scrap cardstock.  Add a glitter dot for eyes. Cut an oval with coordinating designer and the second to the largest die set pictured below.  Cut the oval in by first laying in place and making light pencil marks where one side should be cut off to make it line up with the mat’s edge as shown.

2017-03-13 17.11.09

2018-02-16 23.00.09

 

 

2018-02-14 C4C bunny sketch

Step7:  Assemble the card:

Score a pc. of 11 x 8.5″ white cardstock at 5.5″ on the long side.  Trim to 5  x 7″.  Cut two mats from designer cardstock that measures 4.75″ x 6.75″.  Adhere one to the card front and one to the back, centered leaving 1/8″ border all around.  Adhere the stamped fish tail to the front panel, centered with the top (Short straight edge) at the top of the designer paper mat.   Adhere, the now cut oval in place as shown.  Put 3 large foam dots under the sentiment tag by centering the one dot then adding one either side of the first.  Put the dots closer to the bottom then the top to make it possible to side the bunnies behind the grass.  Glue the two ends down.  Add a half dome pearl to cover the hole on the right and adhere the Easter basket as shown with the highest bunny box hiding the left side hole.

That’s It!

C4C – 421 A Valentine or Appreciation

This weeks challenge is to make a Valentine or card of appreciation.  Well, another Valentines card it is!

2018-01-30 C4C 421

The Steps:

Step 1:  In Silhouette Studio, using the file “Nested Hearts”  resize to make a bunch of hearts in 3 sizes with both pink and red cardstock:

2018-01-28 23.14.31

Step 2:  Now cut two of the “Wheelbarrow” pc. from the below die set:

2016-12-06-00-01-03

Color one of the “Wheelbarrow” pcs. with Copic Markers.  On the second pc. color only the edges so that no white will show when you glue the pcs. together.  Don’t glue together yet!

Step 3:  Cut from this die set below once in white and once in red:

2016-07-12 14.36.54

Step 4:  Make the base card by scoring an 11 X 8.5″ pc. of white cardstock at 5.5″ on the long side.  Fold over and trim to 5.5 x 7″.  Choose 2 coordinating desiger papers and cut a rectangle out of both papers that measure 3.25 x 5″.  Out of one of your papers cut a rectangle that measures 5 x 6.5 “.  Adhere all these designer paper rectangles to the base card as shown below.

2018-01-30 14.41.22

Step 5:  Make the featured raised panel.  Cut a pc. of coordinating solid color cardstock that measures 5.25 x 4″.  Adhere the largest white “Wavy frame to this rectangle.  Add the red negative pcs. from the same red frame as the white one into your white frame.

Glue the white with colored edges “wheelbarrow” pc. to your panel.  Then glue the fully colored wheelbarrow over the first one BUT don’t glue the top of the wheelbarrows so you can tuck some hearts inside the “wheelbarrow“.

Step 6:  From the set below cut “Love You” from red cardstock and the “xoxo”.

2017-02-20-17-17-24

Step 7:  Finish the panel by adding the hearts and sentiment as shown.  Add dimensional dots under some of the hearts and adhere some flat to the panel.  Start your first layer of hearts by putting a little dab of glue on the bottom pointy end of the right side of four largest hearts and tuck into the top layer of the Wheelbarrows and then stick a dimensional dot under the top of this layer.  Keep adding hearts, some lifted with dots and some flat as you like them.  Add the sentiments.

2018-02-04 14.12.02

Step 8:  The last step is to adhere the panel to the card also using foam dimensionals.  For this step I used large square foam dimentionals.

For the inside of the card I used another of the red Wavy frames, the little hearts pc. that comes from the very center and the “xoxo”.

2018-02-04 14.13.31

That’s it!

Thanks for taking a look and I hope you’ll try your own version of this card.

C4C – 419 Opposites

This week’s Challenge over at Crazy 4 Challenges is to make a card with the theme “Opposites” such as black/white, mirror images etc.

.2018-01-22 C4C 419 final

I chose to make my DT card black and white.  Obviously!

This is a really easy card to make.  The background is a Silhouette Studio file called “Fern Artisan”.  This file gives you two mat cutting files.  One is the mat that has the fern cutouts (in my card the top black mat).  The second one is a plain mat.  You can make these files any size.  However, if you don’t own a Silhouette Cutting machine you could use a set of nesting dies and cut out with black cardstock the third to the largest die.  Then put some “leaf or vine type” dies over the black mat and run through your machine to get this same effect.   Below is a picture of the negative from cutting the Silhouette file.  I’ll more than likely use that on another project!

2018-01-22 16.51.20

The Steps:

I needed enough room to add the daisies that I wanted to be the main feature because daisies make me “Smile”.

Step 1. Size the over daisy overlay file to measure 5.5″ square.  The plain mat file you will size to 6″ square and cut from white cardstock and another plain mat sized to 6.5″ in black cardstock.  Adhere the layers together as shown in pictures.

Step 2:  I used this die from Elizabeth Craft Designs to make these cute daisies:

2017-10-10 13.29.35

Cut the over lay piece 3 times from white cardstock.  Cut the daisy silhouette pc. from Velum 3 times.  Adhere the white over lay pcs. of the vellum silhouette pcs. Cut the pc. that is the daisy center from black and white polka dot paper or cardstock 3 times.  Cut the stem pc. 6 times from white cardstock (glue 2 together to end up with 3 stems).

Step 3:  Glue the daisies and their stems as pictured.  I put a foam dimensional dot underneath each daisy center and then glued down one edge of each flower.  I added a black and white polka dot organza bow.

Step 4: Cut the “Smile” sentiment out of white cardstock with this die set and adhere to card as shown:

2018-01-22 17.35.05

That’s it!

Dies R Us – Kids Cards!

I decided to enter the current challenge at Dies R Us which is “Kids Cards”.

2018-01-16 DiesRus

The image I chose for this challenge is one called “Peaceful Easter” from The Paper Shelter.  I fell in love with this sweet image of innocence:

2018-01-15 16.46.56

The Steps:

Step 1:  Download, size and print the image.  If you’re new to digital stamps,  the greatest reference on many things about using digital images is from a website called Kit and Clowder.   This is a company that teaches coloring with Markers and Pencils.  They also have areas on their website that have an amazing amount of information on all things coloring!  The below photo shows how I always print out an image that I buy in both the black and white, and color version on one page that I keep in a binder.  It also has the image that I colored with PrismaColor Premium Pencils. 

2018-01-15 16.48.02

After I colored the stamped image I created the background with stencils and PanPastel’s then trimmed the finished image to 5 x 7″ with the stamped image centered:

2018-01-15 16.35.56

Step 2:  Cut 2 rectangle mats that measure 5 x 7″.  One from Designer cardstock and one from white cardstock.  From the Die set below on the right 1113 – Stitched Ovals, center the second to the largest on the Designer cardstock and run through your machine.  From the same die set, center the third to the largest on the white rectangle.  Save the Oval mats for another project because you will use the rectangle mats with the oval cut outs.

2016-11-26-17-11-25Step 3:  Adhere the white mat to this layer. Then, on top. the Designer layer.  The photo below is these 3 layers and the beginning of step 4:

2018-01-16 13.24.10

Step 4:  Cut from white cardstock and color with Copic Markers, all the decorator items as follows:

Peaceful Easter collage

Cut the grass, eggs, bunnies and fence once.  Cut all the Holly Hock pcs. to assemble the holly hock on your card directly and build the plant from the stem up as the picture in step 3.

Step 5:  Assemble the Holly Hock on the left as shown then add the fence, bunnies and eggs on the bottom.

Step 6:  Create a base card by scoring a 8.5 x 11″ at 5.5″ on the long side.  Fold and trim down to 5.5 x 7.5″.  Adhere the assembled front to the base.

That’s It!

C4C 415 A clean and simple Holiday Card

2017-12-04 13.07.21

 

This week’s challenge over at Crazy4Challenges was to pick any one of the sketches above from the yr. 2017 for your card layout.  It could be any theme or colors.  I chose C4C369.  Do you see the mistake I made?  In my haste to get this done on time I glued the silver flourishes down going the wrong way for the sketch!  OH NO!  Well, we all make mistakes.  Once I was able to start breathing again, I decided I was just going to go with it.  Even though they would have looked so much better the right way.

I’m confessing this to you because we are our toughest critic.  The person who receives this card will never even see that there’s that mistake.

So let’s make this cute Christmas Tree .

The Steps:

Step 1:  This one is so fun because it combines two die sets not intended for each other.  With the below die set, use just the pine bough pc. and cut a bunch of these.  I just kept repositioning the die over two layers of white cardstock until I had cut out that die 12 times netting me 24 of these.

2017-12-03 18.43.34

Brush, on all 24 of these, with clear Wink of Stella.

Step 2:  With the below die set 755 – 5 Part Pine cut all 5 pcs. of this tree from white cardstock:

2016-08-21 13.19.57      2017-12-03 20.05.49

Step 3:  Now start gluing the “pine boughs” over the 5 tree layers but only glue the top of the pine boughs down.  That’s what makes the tree more 3D:

2017-12-03 20.06.55

2017-12-03 23.46.41

Once you have all 5 tree layers covered the way you want it, then glue the 5 tree layers as shown above.

Step 4:  Cut the two flourish pieces from this die set using silver mirror cardstock.

2017-11-30 19.17.18

Step 5:  Using the largest die from this set, cut a square from white cardstock:

2017-07-23 16.40.23

Then using the below embossing folder, emboss this white mat:

2017-12-04 15.12.36

Step 6:  Using the third to the largest die in the below die set cut a rectangle out of red cardstock:

2017-12-04 15.04.47

The below are the main elements for this card.  The little silver star is one I had in my stash:

Step 7:  Make the base card from heavy white cardstock that measures 11″ x .5″ and score on the long side at 5.5″.  Fold and trim to a 5.5″ square.  If you’re going to stamp a sentiment on the inside of the card then this is when you should do it.

Step 8:  Adhere the White mat to the base card leaving a 1/8″ on all sides.  Adhere the Red mat onto the white mat as shown.  Then adhere the completed tree.  The flourishes next and I added a Red/silver Glitter Dot from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

That’s it!  Pretty easy and I could also see this tree technique in green or a combo of white and green.

Thanks so much for taking a look!
