Mother´s Day set – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, time for another Elizabeth Crafts Designs project post. Today I´m sharing a Mother´s Day card and present box set with you. For this set I used the Through the Lens – Metal paper series papers with the Fitted Circles, the Stitched Rectangles and the Bunch of Flowers 4 die cut dies. This is how I created both the card and the packaging.

Sanna LippertStep 1: Take a piece of watercolor paper and apply Brusho Chrystal Colour onto it, mist with water spray and let dry. Sanna LippertStep 2: Use the Bunch of Flowers 4 die cut die set to cut flowers from the previously created watercolor paper. Sanna LippertStep 3: Apply Double Sided Adhesive tape onto a 4×5,5 inch sized piece of white cardstock and adhere the blue paper from the Through the Lens – Metal paper set onto the white cardstock piece. Now cut a hole into the upper middle of the paper using the Fitted Circles die cut die. Sanna LippertStep 4: Cut a piece of brown Through the Lens – Metal paper using the Banners die cut die set. Cut a piece of twine and draw a circle onto a white card base for placement guide.Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertStep 5: Cut a small circle and use a marker to color it red. Then adhere into the middle of the previously cut banner piece. Adhere the banner onto the twine and then adhere the paper over the banner using 3D foam pads. Sanna LippertStep 6: Adhere the flowers around the circle overlappingly and add silver puffy stars here and there for additional decoration. Sanna LippertStep 7: Outline the card with a white gel pen and attach a bow for decoration. Cut a Hello sentiment and color it with a marker or use a colored cardstock, adhere underneath the bow. The card is finished.Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertStep 8: Use a milk carton cutting template and cut from a light blue cardstock, then assembly the carton, outline the edges with a white gel pen. Cut rectangles with the Stitched Rectangles die cut set and adhere onto the sides of the carton. Use leftover Brusho flowers and mini hearts from the Poppy the Owl set and adhere into the middle of each rectangle piece for interest. Take a piece of hemp cord and adhere two flower pieces together, attach a heart in the middle and hand on top of the carton with a clothes pin. Fill with a present of your choice. This is how the finished set looks like:

Bella BLVD & Canvas Corp Brands Team Up Week!

bella boulevard hop banner 4Hello lovelies and welcome to the Bella BLVD and Canvas Corp Brands Team Up week!! I am very thrilled to be able to be part of this design team-up and would like to share a total of three projects with you! The first one is an Easter present set with an altered (chocolate filled) can and a matching card to go with it:

Sanna Lippert As a starting point I took a plain, from the bottom fillable can and covered it with the “Sweet, sweet spring” collection papers and stickers by Bella BLVD (for supplies, see direct links at the end of this post). Sanna Lippert Next I used a flower die cut die and cut three same sized flowers from the “Bloomin´ Beauties” & “To Dye For” papers. After that I fussy cut four leaves from the Canvas Corp Brands 12×12 Burlap Sheet – Avocado.

Sanna Lippert After rolling and glueing the flowers together I adhered them, the rope pieces (Avocado & Orange cord hemp rope) and the burlap leaves onto the can in a cluster. I filled the centres of the flowers with some hot blue color fragments. Sanna Lippert Next I used the English Garden Calender Mist Kit (see for more kit colors here!) and misted some plain white paper rosebuds with the kit colors to match the rolled paper flowers on the can. After that I added a sticker sentiment on top.Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert After finishing the can, I immediately filled it from the bottom and placed the black cover onto it´s place. I then created a simple card to go with the can. I used the same papers, burlap and mists as on the can. I also added some purple spray color dots around the card (outlined with a white gel pen) using the purple mist tone from the calendar kit. Here is how the finished set looks like:  Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert This paper collection is perfect for those happy and bright Easter and Spring projects and it works so well with the Tattered Angels English Garden Calendar Mist Kit!! And the rope and burlap add a really nice touch to the paper collection too. Oh, and once the can has been opened and the chocolate eaten, the can can still be used as a table decoration and/or for storing all kinds of tidbits.
