Hi there, I´m quickly stopping by today to share a fun and easy to make Easter decor with you that you can easily create with your kids. First off is a birdie, attached to a barbeque bamboo stick:
These are so easy to make. Just draw a birdie onto a patterned paper with a pencil, then fussy cut it and adhere to a bamboo barbeque stick. Take the Flower Power stamps by Elizabeth Craft Designs and stamp some smaller flowers with a waterproof black ink onto white cardstock. Then take the Nuvo Brilliantly Vibrant watercolour pencils and a waterbrush pen and color the stamped images with the pencils. Now fussy cut and adhere to the birdie. Add a sequin as an eye and decorate the flowers with Nuvo Glitter and Crystal drops. Here is a close-up. These a fun to make with kids and keep them busy, while they are waiting for the Easter bunny to arrive :).
Second option is a bunny, attached to a bamboo stick. The steps are the same as with the birdie. After finishing, stick them as decoration to flower pots in the house.
That´s it from me for today. Happy crafting,
Hello there everyone, it´s my turn again to share a card project for the Elizabeth Craft Designs Die Cut Design Team today. I created a Summer Flowers Card Set, and I want to share how easy it is to make more than one card using the same color palette with the Stitched Fishtail Banners and Fitted Circles dies, plus the Flower Power Clear Stamps set and coordinating Flower Power dies. Here is how I created the cards:
1. Take two pieces of white cardstock and cut them into same size, but slightly smaller as your card bases.
2. Take a Flower Power flower clear stamp and stamp flowers next to each other with embossing ink onto the background.
3. Pour white embossing powder over the stamped area and heat set the powder with a heat gun. Mind your fingers!
4. Apply green, yellow and orange Distress Ink with an ink blending tool over the embossed areas.
5. Take a Fitted Circle die cut die and die cut a circle into the upper part of the inked piece.
6. Take black Distress Ink and stamp a flower onto a piece of white paper. Apply clear embossing ink over the stamped image and heat set with a heat gun.
7. Die cut with the coordinating Flower Power die cut die and color with a water tank brush and Distress Crayons and decorate the center with Mint Prills.
8. Stamp a Dream Sentiments word onto a piece of white paper, apply clear embossing powder on top and heat set, ink with orange Distress ink and die cut with Stitched Fishtail banners.
9. Adhere the inked background with 3D foam onto the card base. Adhere the die cut flower into the circle and finally adhere the sentiment on top.
10. For the second card use the same techniques, but now stamp the background with black ink and color with only one tone, then adhere the positive die cut image (circle) onto the card, add a stamped, heat embossed sentiment that you die cut into a banner form and decorate with a vellum butterfly. For more details on how I created the cards, see the following video:
I hope you get inspired to create some flower cards of your own. If you are not that good in coloring (as I am not either!), I hope this simple idea inspires you to start. With this type of coloring it does not matter, if the shading is not perfect.
