Mum – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello there, everyone! Today I´d like to share with you a Mother´s Day card I created using mainly the Elizabeth Craft Designs products. This is how the card looks like:

Sanna LippertHere is a little step-by-step on how I created the card:

Sanna LippertFirst I took a piece of yellow cardstock and placed an Elizabeth Craft Designs stencil repeatedly over the paper and inked thru it with an orange Distress Ink tone.

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertNext I cut a Garden Notes Grapewine Wreath Round image from a green patterned paper several times. After that I took a strip of Brusho colored watercolor paper and used an Anemone die cutting die to cut several flowers. Sanna LippertI then adhered the stenciled cardstock piece onto a white card base. After that I adhered the wreath and leave pieces onto the yellow background.

Sanna LippertAfter I had first built the flowers I glued them on their places and added some details with a pearl pen.

Sanna LippertSanna LippertFinally I used the Alphabet 2 – Lower Case die cut set and the Banners die cut set to cut the images and hung the banner with twine from one end of the wreath to the other. I attached small silver puffy dots on top at both ends and outlined the card edges with a matching toned marker. For the banner pieces I used the Through the Lens – Metal paper set.

Spring Flower Cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, time to share my first April step-by-step card project with Elizabeth Craft Designs products. They say that April showers bring May flowers. Well, I took an early start with a bright and flowery card set. I again used both the positive and negative pieces from the die cut images for creating my cards. I´ve used the Crystal Flower Set 1 and the Crystal Flower Overlay Set 2 on my cards and there is even a little bit of the Through the Lens – Wood Series patterned cardstock on my second card (links to all used products at the end of this post).

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertHere is how I created my cards:
Sanna LippertCut a 4×8.5 inch sized piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and adhered it onto a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Ink the white paper with Distress Ink in Wild Honey, Worn Lipstick and Victorian Velvet. Sanna LippertUsing the smaller flower die from the Crystal Flower Set 1, cut as many pieces as possible. Use all areas of the inked paper.
Sanna LippertNow cut a second piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock to the same size, attach to Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheet and use the Crystal Flower Overlay Set 2 for cutting as many white overlay pieces as possible. Take the „leftover inner pieces of the overlay flower“ using tweezers and adhere them onto the inked flower pieces. This takes a while, but the effect if definitely worth the effort.

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertThis is how the finished flowers look.
Sanna LippertCut another piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock into a size of 4×5.5 inch, adhere onto a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheet and ink green with peeled paint Distress Ink.
Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertAttach all the prepared flowers onto the green inked cardstock piece. Fill all free areas and trim excess at the edges.
Sanna LippertUsing another piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock, again adhered on Clear Double Sided Adhesive, die cut two pieces of Sea Glass with the Jewelry Set 1 and a Hello sentiment.
Sanna LippertInk the pieces with Peeled Paint, Wild Honey and Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. Before adhering the flower piece onto the card base, wrap pink seam binding around the piece and tie into a bow.
Sanna LippertSanna LippertPunch holes into both Sea Glass pieces and adhere the Hello sentiment on the longer piece. Then use golden jump rings (and a pair of pliers) to attach the Sea Glass die cut pieces onto the card. Add a few paper flowers for additional decoration next to the seam binding bow and now the card is done.

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertFor the second card, created with the Crystal Flower Overlay Set 2 positive images, you will need a 6×6 piece of Through the Lens – Wood Series patterned cardstock (yellow).
Sanna LippertAdhere the flower die cut images onto the cardstock, grouping them toward one side as shown above. Trim away excess at the edges.
Sanna LippertUsing a Stitched Rectangles die (second largest one from the set) run the flowered piece through your die cutting machine.
Sanna LippertTake a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and adhere it onto a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheet. Use the Alphabet 2 Lower Case die for cutting. Adhere the word ‚hi‘ onto the yellow background and the word ‚there!‘ (with exclamation point) onto the bottom right corner. Use a yellow marker to color in same tone as the patterned background cardstock BEFORE adding the word ‚there!‘). Cut small circles from Clear Double Sided Adhesive and attach them into the middle of each flower. Apply Saffron Silk Microfine Glitter onto those pieces, brush off excess glitter and polish with your fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. The second card is finished.
Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertBy using all the die cut flower pieces we end up with not only one, but two spring flower cards.

Gut gemacht! – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello and happy Wednesday! Time to share a little card project with you today. I´ve again used plenty of Elizabeth Craft Designs product on this one.

Sanna LippertHere is how I created the card:

Sanna LippertI first cut a piece of Soft Finish Cardstock into a size of 8×14 centimeters, then adhered this piece onto Clear Double Sided Adhesive and ran the paper thru a die cutting machine twice with the Alphabet 2 – Lower Case die cut die. I used some of the alphas for the „Love my Crazy Bunch“ layout (see details here). I then removed all other alphas and saved them for a later project and only used the negative piece for this project.

Sanna LippertNext I used various shades of blue Glimmer Mist to color the die cut piece.

Sanna LippertAfter that I cut several white flowers from the Soft Finish Cardstock using the Bunch of Flowers 4 die cut die. Then I inked the edges of the flowers with light blue Distress Ink. The flowers remind me of one of my favorite spring flowers, Forget Me Not.

Sanna LippertNow all I needed to do was to adhere the inked alpha piece into the middle of a white card base and add some yellow seam binding for additional decoration.

Sanna LippertAfter that I added some rhinestones for additional interest. I used yellow, green and blue ones.

Sanna LippertThen I layered the die cut flowers over each other and added some rhinestones in the middle. Sanna LippertI wanted to add some additional shine to the center of the flowers, so I applied some Glossy Accents and Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter around the rhinestones. I let the glitter dry for a while and then just dabbed the residue away. In the end I just added a hand written sentiment to the card and it was done. Here are some detail photos of the finished card:

For the Love of Squares – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello there! While I was preparing my trip to Creativeworld in Frankfurt, this blog post went up over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. It´s all about squares! I just love to use basic die cut forms, as they can be used in so many various ways.

Here is what I created using the Stitched Square die set:

Sanna Lippert

1. Cut two strips of White Soft Finish Cardstock in appr. 8.5 x 2.75″ inch size. Run through a die cutting machine, three times each piece. Save the leftover strips for another project, as they look a little like photo negative strips and will be a fun starting point for another project!

Sanna Lippert

2. Spray green, red and orange spray ink onto the die cut pieces. Let dry.

Sanna Lippert

3. Add strips of Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto 3 die cut pieces. Then apply Silk Microfine Glitter – Fire Opal onto the adhesive areas and polish with your fingertip to bring out the sparkle.

Sanna Lippert

4. Choose three photos and cut them into the same size as the inked square pieces. To make sure the photos stay put while cutting, adhere them onto the plattform with masking or washi tape (low-tack tape that will not damage the photos).

Sanna Lippert

5. Use the “The Best Things in Life” stamp to stamp the quote onto three of the squares as shown in the photo above. Ink ONLY the part of the saying that is needed for that particular square. Clean the stamp thoroughly and dry it well before inking and stamping the next part. Repeat for the third square.

6. Run a piece of green cardstock thru a die cutting machine using the Fitted Frames 3 Curvy Rectangles die for cutting.

Sanna Lippert

7. Next use turquoise cardstock and one of the Bunch of Flowers 4 dies to cut some flowers. Use 3 full flowers and one half flower.

Sanna Lippert

8. Adhere the 6 misted die cut rectangles and the three photos in rows onto an A4 sized piece of white cardstock. Adhere. Next adhere the flowers and pieces of the Fitted Frames images next to the glittered and stamped areas. Add black ink splatters for additional decoration. Then adhere the center pieces of the Fitted Frames 3 Curvy Rectangles dies underneath the last squares on the left and the right side of the layout.

9. Die cut another piece of Soft Finish Cardstock using the Alphabet 2 – Lower Case die. Remember to add Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto the cardstock before cutting. Save the leftover piece for later for another project.

Sanna Lippert

10. Outline the piece of white white cardstock with a black pen for more contrast.

Sanna Lippert

11. Ink the lower case alphas with black ink and adhere the title of the layout between the die cut images.

Sanna Lippert

12. Add white texture spray droplets here and there for additional detail.

This is how the finished layout looks like. I hope you enjoyed this fun and easy step-by-step tutorial and will get inspired to scrap your own layout this way! For more inspirational projects, please see the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog!!
Happy Crafting,
