Easter Best Wishes Card   Thursday, April 17, 2014
by Guest Author   Post Type: Card

easter card

by Beck Beattie

Easter is such a fun time of year and especially so when you have little ones so very excited by all the chocolate eggs, hot cross buns and also a holiday break around the corner.  Today I thought I would have a little fun creating two projects from one.  The first project meant a little surprise for my boys when they got home from Kindergarten. The second a card made with the left over die cuts!

Bunny Prints Stencil

Each year we do a bit of an egg hunt for them on Easter Sunday. Last year, when we were camping I whipped up a stencil for those all-important bunny prints the Easter Bunny leaves behind.  This year I am getting organised early and making the stencil before I go to save me stressing at 6am – hopefully before they get up.

To make your stencil begin by placing the Classic Ovals Large #2  (#1 being the smallest) die in the centre of your 8.5  x 11" cardstock and the #1 die directly above.  Tape in place and then and cut/emboss the shape with the Grand Calibur Machine. The benefit of having a machine that takes the larger size cardstock through it. 


Repeat  placing and taping the #1 die until you have three above the large oval as pictured

 

Now take your finished stencil outside on Easter Sunday morning and dust with some flower if you are in a snow prone area. Or, as it is Autumn/ fall here, I used some chocolate dust and wet it with a mini mister to help it stand out a little more.  When my boys came home from Kinder, they thought it was the funniest thing that the Easter Bunny left muddy foot prints when he came and visited while they were out!  I promptly let them know I asked the Easter bunny to wipe his feet on the mat and not bring his dirty footprints inside.

 

 


Easter Card

With the leftover ovals cut out to make the foot prints I decided to make a cute little Easter Card. 

I started by taking the ovals and adding a pretty pattern with the Stamp Doctor Cherry Blossom Oval stamp and some Tsukineko Opaque ‘Cotton white’ ink.  To highlight the design I used my white Uni Posca pen to outline the stamped image.  These looked so pretty already.

 

To make the card cut a card base 8 x 6.25"  and then fold to make a card base that is 4 x 6.25"  Next Cut emboss the #5 5 x 7 Matting Basics B die from orange cardstock   Cut another two rectangles sizes 0.5" smaller each time for a coloured layered effect.  Keep these separate as pictured at this stage

 

Take the white cardstock rectangle layered on the coloured strip rectangle and apply a line of glue before adhering some ribbon, tucking behind and adhering on the back. 


Add a piece of cardboard or foam for dimension to the back before layering on top of the orange cardstock. Now, on the card base.

Now we are going to add the decorated ovals cut and embellished with the stamped design created earlier.  Add a little dimension behind the smaller oval.

 

To finish add your stamped sentiment (I used ‘Best Wishes’ as I didn’t have a Happy Easter stamp), a bow from the same ribbon used earlier and some yellow enamel dots.

I always save any die cuts I might have left over for use on future projects.  I hope you enjoyed my share today and I have inspired you to create a little extra fun for the kids this Easter, while also using left over die cuts for another project.  My additional left over ovals will not go to waste either and I’d some ideas on what you think I could create with them!  Leave comments below or on our Facebook page and I’ll be sure to check them out!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Other supplies:

Instructions:

Sometimes when playing around with mixed media, experimenting goes hand in hand, and although something doesn’t work well for a certain project it might be perfect for another.  So for today’s project I wanted to use up some cardstock I experimented with when creating my project for the recent blog frenzy.  If you want to see how to create this background, head on over and check out the video.  http://beckbt.blogspot.com.au/2014/04/spellbinders-springtime-shipping-frenzy.html 

  • I took this piece of cardstock and cut it to 5 x 5" and layered it onto a card base 5.25 x 5.25" cut from the Robin’s egg Bazzill cardstock. 
  • Cut/emboss a frame out of the pink cardstock using the Spellbinders® Grand Calibur Machine, by nesting the #3 & #4  (#1 being the smallest) 5 x 7 Matting Basics A dies together and adhere to the card with some foam squares

  • Stamp your sentiment on a leftover piece of the Robin’s Egg Bazzill cardstock with a Black StazOn ink pad.  Line up the Labels thirty-three #3 die cutting side face down on the stamped sentiment.  Add a little removable tape to keep it in place, cut/emboss the sentiment out and adhere to the card using a double layer of foam squares.
happy birthday
  • Cut emboss the Butterfly Expandable pattern from the pink cardstock and cut out one of the butterflies to add to adhere to the top left of the sentiment.

Add to the card a flower which was die cut and assembled from the Bitty Blossom die set #3 (large) flower.  There is a link in the post link above on how I create these flowers.

Add a bow from some sea breeze  colored ribbon and some pink sequins to add that finishing touch to this card.


I hope I have inspired you today to give your cards a touch of spring.  Although it is Autumn/Fall where I live, a bit of spring is always welcomed, so I thoroughly enjoyed creating this card today.  I would love to see you share your spring inspired projects in the comments below or on our Facebook page, and remember if you have any questions leave a comment so we can get back to you!

  • S2-062 Create A Daisy
  • S4-430 Foliage Flourish (Accent 1, Accent 2)

Cross Promotional Partners:

  • SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ - 3D Foam Squares
  • Xyron® - Mega Runner Adhesive

Other supplies:

  • Jute Twine
  • Self Adhesive Gems
  • Craft Glue

 

Instructions:

Cut/emboss Create A Daisy petals & disc floret from pink cardstock, petal base from yellow cardstock and leaves & disc floret base from green cardstock using Spellbinders Grand Calibur® machine. Cut/emboss additional pieces to make two of each petal base, ten of each petal and five of each disc floret.

Use an inked applicator tool to sponge ink onto the base of each petal.

To being assembling the layers, adhere the large petals to one of the disc florets. Then repeat for each size.

Use a narrow tool to curve the ends of the petal base pieces. Then adhere some of the pieces to the smallest petal layer, forming a ring around the outside of the floret. Adhere additional pieces to the center until the it looks full.

Use a round tool or your fingers to curve the petals on each layer. To assemble the layers, start with the largest petal layer on the bottom and place the second largest petal layer over it, so that the petals on the second layer are over the gaps on the first layer, and adhere in the center. Keep adding layers, offsetting each time until all layers are adhered.

Use an inked applicator tool to sponge the edges of the leaves with green ink. Adhere the leaves to the bottom of the flower, then add the disc floret base to the bottom.


Note: Although the disc floret base will not be visible on my card, I wanted to show you how to place it for a finished look on the back. Also, to make the leaves show more, beyond the flower, simply adhere to the back of a petal, rather than the disc floret.

For the other pieces on the card, cut and emboss Foliage Flourish accent 1 and accent 2 from green cardstock. Stamp sentiment on ½" strip of white cardstock and trim ends. Cut a 5/8" strip of pattern paper and trim ends.




Create a 5" square card base from white cardstock. Trim pink corrugated paper to 1" by 5" and adhere to card base. Adhere foliage die cuts and twine to the corrugated paper, then use adhesive foam squares to secure flower, sentiment and pattern paper. Add gems to embellish.

Welcome Spring   Wednesday, April 09, 2014
by Darsie Bruno   Post Type: Card

Hi everyone! It's beginning to feel like spring in New York with warmer temperatures. Pretty soon the forsythia will be blooming along with the crocuses and daffodils. I'm really looking forward to it, and my card represents a beautiful spring morning with butterflies and a garden bench. Oh, wouldn't it be lovely to sit on that bench surrounded by the beauty of nature! ~ Enjoy!

 

 Welcome Spring by Darsie Bruno

Spellbinders™ Paper Arts Supplies:


Preferred Partner Companies:



Cross Promotional Partners:


Other: Baby wipes, watercolor paper

Instructions:


 Cut/emboss Garden Bench, Flutter Tree and Butterflies with white cardstock.  

To create my background, I used a baby wipe and rubbed it against the tip of a gelato, starting with light blue, and then smoothed the wipe onto my watercolor paper (size 5 x 5 1/2 inches) in various areas. I next added blue and repeated the process, then filled in with light purple until I was happy with the results. It's so easy to blend the colors with the moist baby wipe!

Repeat the process with the blue gelato and baby wipe, darkening some of the areas. Add green at the bottom for grass, then fill in with olive green.

Add green color to the base of the Flutter tree with the baby wipe. Stamp your sentiment in the upper right hand corner with Tuxedo Black ink. Glue the Flutter Tree, Garden Bench and small butterflies to your watercolor panel. Adhere the panel to a white panel (size 5 1/8 x 5 5/8 inches), then to a folded card (size 5 3/4 x 6 1/4 inches).

 If you have any questions, please feel free to ask in the comments and I will do my best to answer them. 

Have a blessed and creative day!

sunflower card

by Yvonne de Grijp 

The new Spellbinders® Create-a-flower templates are such fun to create with. Today I will show you how to make a sunflower and make a beautiful card with it. 

 

Spellbinders® Paper Arts Supplies:

 

Preferred  Partner Companies:

  • Flourishes LLC™: Dahlias SS248 - Clearstamps
  • IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko®: Stazon® Jet Black SZ-31 - Ink Pad, sponge dauber ST-DAB-003

 

Cross Promotional Partners:

  • Bazzill Basic Paper™:  Celery, Safari, Milkshake, Black, Card Shoppe -  12"x12" cardstock
  • Beacon Adhesives, Inc.: 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue
  • Deco Art®: Metallic Lustre™: Gold Rush ML02C - Wax Metallic Finish
  • Graphic 45®: French Country: A la Carte #4500637 - 12"x12" patterned paper
  • Scor-Pal®: Scor-Buddy™, Scor-Tape™: 1/2" double sided adhesive tape
  • Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®: 3D foam squares - brown no. 01615 - self adhesive foam squares

 

Other supplies:

  • acrylic stamp block
  • scissors
  • 1" vanilla satin ribbon
  • rubber or foam mat
  • a tool to curl the petals
  • a pin


To make the sunflower:

Cut/emboss 10 sets of each size petals from Bazzill Basic Paper™ yellow Card Shoppe  cardstock.

Cut/emboss 3 sets of both leaves  and one flower  base from Safari cardstock.

Cut/emboss a flower center from Milkshake cardstock.

 

Use a IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® dauber to rub some  Gold Rush Deco Arts® Metallic Lustre™ along the edges of the leaves and tops of the petals.

Curl all the petals.

Use a foam pad or a rubber mat to put the  petals on and curl the petals by rubbing a round-tipped ballpoint circle-wise over the petal centers.

sunflower petals

I find it the easiest to use a pin to keep my flower base on it's place while gluing the petals on.

This way the flower base stays in place perfectly.

Glue 10 of the largest petals on the flower base and let dry.

Then glue the 10 second largest petals on the base and let dry.

Build the flower with the third largest and then the smallest petals.

Glue the brown flower center on top.

Then curl the edges of the flower to your likings.

Trim Celery 10¼"x7⅛" cardstock to 10½"x7⅛" .

Fold in half to create a 5¼ "x 7⅛" card base.

Trim yellow Card Shoppe cardstock to size 6⅞"x4⅞" and glue to card base using Beacon Adhesives, Inc. 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue.

Cut/emboss/stencil  Exquisite Labels  Eleven #3 (with #1 being the smallest tdie template) from black cardtsock.

Use a slightly moistenend IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® dauber to stencil with Gold Rush Deco Arts® Metallic Lustre™.


Glue upon upon card base.

Cut/emboss  Spellbinders® Matting Basics B  #4 from Graphic 45® French Country - A la Carte patterned paper.


Stamp Flourishes LLC™ Dahlias text on the die-cut using  IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Stazon® Jet Black inkpad.


ink stamps

Wrap yellow satin ribbon around the patterned die-cut and glue to the back using Scor-Pal® ½" Scor-Tape™

 

Glue upon the cardbase using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® brown 3D foam squares.

 

Glue the sunflower to the card.

Tie a bow from yellow satin ribbon and glue to the card using Scor-Tape™.

 

Designer's tips:

To curl the edges of  flower petals I like to use a small round stick (or a paint-brush) to prevent folds in the petals.

Baby wipes are a great way to clean your hands from Metallic Lustre.

You can easily moisten the Metallic Lustre paste by misting a little water upon the paste.

Using 3D foam squares give that beautiful 3D-effect to your card.
