It´s in the Box! – Elizabeth Craft Designs Challenge

Hello lovelies!!! Every month the Elizabeth Craft Designs Die Cut Design Team joins in for a fun challenge. The themes vary from month to month. The idea is that the complete die cut design team create a project around the given theme. This months theme is „It´s in the Box“. Needless to say, we used the lovely box die cut dies on our project this month :).

Here is what I did:

I used the Lantern and the Bonbon box die cut dies to create my take(s) for the challenge. I noticed that I hardly ever can stick to only one project, but need to make a few more while I am at it (not to mention the additional two I created and are not shown here :-).

The Bonbon box is easy to use, as it creates a full box once die cut. You just need to bend the flaps into right position. No adhering needed, thus very easy to do. Perfect for quick and easy projects or if you need to make plenty at once!!! The lantern die cut die on the other hand consists of a half box. So you will need to die cut two similar pieces and then adhere those together to be able to built the actual box. On the above picture you can see how these pieces look like when die cut and where to add (in my opinion the adhesive I added is enough) the Clear Double Sided Adhesive strips. There might be other opinions on how to built these boxes together, but I found this way is the easiest for me personally.

On the above picture you can see that I´ve removed the protective sheet from the adhesive strips and first adhered the bottom flaps together and then adhered both box halves into each other. I found that the easiest way for me. If you are planning on adding a vellum (like I did – I used a blue vellum) behind the lantern „window“ areas, you will need to do that right after die cutting the pieces. It´s simply the easiest way to do it. You can also try to adhere them when the box is built together, but will probably notice that it is a little bit harder that way. I am not saying, it will not work, but you will need much more patience that way :-). Why am I telling this? Well, let´s just say I learned the hard way :-). Here are the finished boxed:

The lantern with blue vellum pieces covering the openings and some twine, wooden pearls and a vintage tag as decoration.

Here is the Bonbon box. I decorated it with vintage shipping tickets, twine and some die cut Leafy Branch 2 pieces.

I really like the look the Stone paper series creates in combination with the box dies.

I also made a little tag to go with the boxes. I think these will work perfect for a boy´s/man´s birthday or Father´s Day or any other „masculine occation“.

I used the Through the Lens Stone paper Series on my projects. The die cut dies and the papers are the perfect size (I am using a Big Shot for die cutting) and work really well together. And since there are several pieces of the same paper pattern in the set, you can also create the lantern box with these papers.

And now for something fun!!! Elizabeth Craft Designs have another designer challenge giveaway prepared for you. They are giving away „a box die of choice“ to 3 winners. The winners will get to select which box they would like to receive from the following dies: Star Pillow Box, Triangle Treat Box, Lantern Box, Bonbon Box or Pillow Box with Handle.

To enter simply leave a comment on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Challenge post and tell us „Which is your favorite box from the January 2017 collection?”
They will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing
The winners will be announced on Friday, March 10 on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.

There are always so many inspirational projects up over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog! I highly recommend you take a look at them. It is funny, how different each an every project is, even though we all use basically the same product category. Just shows, how many possibilities there are to use box die cut dies!!! Hope you get inspired by this month´s ideas!!!

Bon Voyage – Misted and stamped summer tag

Hi there lovelies & happy weekend!! Today I ´d like to share a summer themed tag with you. I DO know it is still February and on my side of the hemisphere it is still winter :-)!!! BUT I do like the summer seaons very much, thus a summer themed tag today. I originally created this tag for the Canvas Corp Brands summer tag swap last year. Somehow, never got to post it then though… I received a gorgeous tag from my swap partner too! I am definitely enjoying interacting with other creatives from around the globe very much.

This is what I created for my swap partner. I used almost solely Canvas Corp Brands product on this tag (some 7gypsies, some Tattered Angels and some Canvas Corp product line ones). I don´t know if you are familiar with their website? If not, you should definitely start from HERE. There is an amazing selection of projects to see, created with different brand products available at the Canvas Corp store. Then, do also check out the brands YouTube channels (also here and here)! So much inspiration, ideas and creativity going on!!!

Annnndd…when you are done reading thru all the wonderful projects and watching loads of videos etc., then I bet you can´t wait to get started with a project of your own, right? Well, then you should DEFINITELY check out this section! That is where the monthly challenge goes live! And as a bonus, you can win some lovely Canvas Corp Brands goodies!!!

So back to my tag. I´ve created a short start-to-finish video where all the used products are also listed :). Hope you enjoy!!

Happy weekend and happy crafting!!!

Bookmark tag

Hello everyone and happy fall!!! I am not much of a winter and fall person, but I guess it is necessary to have those seasons to really be able to enjoy spring and summer, eh? I recently created a bookmark for a design team colleague to cheer her up abit.

Sanna Lippert - book mark tag with glitter and die cutting

I first die cut small hearts from a clear double sided adhesive sheet with a die cutting machine and used those for this card. The lefover piece is this one I covered with Silk Microfine Glitter for this tag :). But first I misted the background with an orange toned Glimmer Mist and when that piece was dry, I attachted the die cut adhesive piece onto it. Next I applied yellow Silk Microfine Glitter on top and polished the surface with my finger to make it really shiny.

Sanna Lippert - book mark tag with glitter and die cutting

The flower is created from an old book page paper and misted with various Glimmer Mist tones. Then cut into circles and layered over each other. Some black and white pen outlining is also on every single layer. The leaves are hand drawn.

Sanna Lippert - book mark tag with glitter and die cuttingFinally I added the banner out of book paper with a „C“ on it. Some washi tape, black texture spray and some ribbon. A blue paper flower finalizes the tag.

I sure hope my design team colleague liked this tag and it made her day a little bit happier. Happy mail always helps thru a grey day, don´t you agree??

Snowflake cards and a tag – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi everyone, today I´d like to share a set of Snowflake cards, created with Elizabeth Craft Designs product, with you. I know that it is a bit early for winter themed cards, but the minute I saw the Brrrr-sentiment die cut die, I had to make something fun with it. Here are a few ideas on how to use the same die cut dies in different ways.

Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cardsHere is how I created the two cards and the present tag:

Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cardsStep 1: Take a piece of True Blue and White Soft Finish Cardstock and cut those into a size of 14,5 x 10 cm. Then cut a piece of Soft Sky Soft Finish Cardstock into the same width, but slightly longer. Attach Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet onto the back of the Soft Sky toned cardstock piece and start by cutting one Brrrr sentiment and several little snowflakes out of that paper with your die cutting machine.

Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cardsStep 2: Now adhere the True Blue piece onto a white card base and start adhering the Soft Sky toned snowflakes on top. Also adhere the Brrrr sentiment onto the bottom part of the card.Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cardsStep 3: Now die cut 3 more Brrrr sentiments out of white cardstock and adhere those on top of the light blue one. This way your get a dimensional sentiment for your card.

Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cards Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cardsStep 4: After adhering all sentiment pieces on top of each other, add a thin layer of Crackle Accents on top for additional frosty effect. Let dry properly.

Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cards Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cardsStep 5: Take a small piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut some tiny hearts – heart from the Poppy the Owl set – and then color them with a red marker. Add a „cuddle weather“ hand written sentiment underneath the die cut word and adhere the hearts around the words. Next apply some Crackle Accents on top of the hearts. Let air dry properly.

Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cards Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cardsStep 6: Now that we still have a really nice piece of leftover cardstock from the first project, why not create a second card with the negative piece. Adhere the Soft Sky Soft Finish Cardstock leftover piece onto a piece of Café au Lait Soft Finish Cardstock piece.

Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cardsStep 7: Take the Fitted Frames 3 Curvy Rectangles die cut die and die cut a piece of Café au Lait Soft Finish Cardstock with it. Use the biggest frame for this card and safe the other pieces for another project.

Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cardsStep 8: Adhere the Soft Sky snowflake background piece on a white card base and then adhere the frame on top. Add white texture spray splatters onto the light blue surface for additional interest. Let air dry. Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cardsStep 9: Cut two Brrrr words from the Café au Lait paper and one additional one out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Layer on top of each other leaving the white piece on top.

Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cardsStep 10: Apple some Crackle Accents on top of the sentiment for additional interest. Decorate with a white gel pen and some light blue half pearls.

Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cards Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cardsStep 11: Now we still have the protection sheet pieces of the snowflake die cut piece left over. You can use both parts, the negative and the positive to decorate yet further backgrounds. Use them as a stencil with inks and/or glitter. I chose to use only the small snowflakes on a white tag to create a fun glitter snowflake background. First adhere a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto the tag, then attach the little snowflake sheet pieces onto the adhesive.

Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cards Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cards

Step 12: Apply a first layer of glitter onto the sticky surface (just in case you want to see a how-to tutorial on that, follow this link to a video tutorial), use a paint brush to brush off any residue glitter. Then use your finger to polish the glitter and only after that remove the little snowflake pieces. I used the Royal Teal Silk Microfine Glitter tone for this layer.

Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cardsStep 13: For the second layer apply the Dark Mint Silk Microfine Glitter tone over the surface, then brush off the residue with a paint brush and polish the surface with your finger. The stronger the tone different between the glitter colors, the better the contrast.

Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cardsStep 14: Die cut the Merry Christmas sentiment from a piece of Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock and adhere onto the tag. Decorate with ribbon, lace and a Fimo DIY mold button. Now all three pieces are done. There would still be the option to use the negative die cut protection sheet of the adhesive as a stencil with ink. Thank would be a perfect DIY stencil for creating yet another fun snowflake background. I did´t give that a try, but you could. Here are the final projects once more:

Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cards Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cards Sanna Lippert, Snowflake die cut cardsSee how you start with one card and that leads to another and yet another idea and in the end you have created a bunch of project at once only by using all the bits and pieces and adding small details as you go. I hope you get inspired to try some of these ideas out, and if you are not quite yet in the mood for winter themed cards, grab another word die cut die and create something for fall or for a birthday for example. Have fun!!!

Memories Tag – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone! Time for another fun little stencil project for this weeks STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday. This time I created a doodled background tag with lots of droplets on it.

Well, it has sure been raining here this summer, so why not go with the flow (haha!) and use some water droplets. Here is what I did:

Sanna Lippert - stenciled water droplet background tagThis tag is really easy to make, but the effect is pretty cool:

Sanna Lippert - stenciled water droplet background tagStep 1: Take a black tag, white gel pen, a stencil of your choice (mine is by STAMPlorations: Droplets Mini) and place the stencil over the tag and start tracing along the droplet patterns thru the stencil with the white pen. More the stencil as you proceed with the doodling. Finally add some details to the droplets to make them look more „real“. Sanna Lippert - stenciled water droplet background tagStep 2: Gather all kinds of embellishments you have in your stash and start adding those in layers. I used some mold to create my own embellishments (by Mold Muse) out of gypsum. Then I misted them (Tattered Angels) in green and blue. The buttons are actually rubber buttosn. They add a fun feel to the project. Sanna Lippert - stenciled water droplet background tagStep 3: Keep on adding layers until you are satisfied with the end result. I added some book paper, buttons, gypsum mold images, some lace, ribbon and golden yarn. Sanna Lippert - stenciled water droplet background tagStep 4: Add faux stitching along the edges with the white gel pen. Attach some enamel dots on top of the buttons for interest. Stamp a sentiment (STAMPlorations Create stamp set) with black ink onto a piece of old book paper, fussy cut and glue onto the tag. Attach a white lace on top and the tag is finished. Here is the finished result (and some details shots):

Hello lovelies, it´s again time for another Stencil Sunday project post! It is a weekly feature brought to you by the STAMPlorations girls in the Mixed Media design team. Every Sunday, there is a post up over at the STAMPlorations blog, where team members share their mixed media projects showcasing ARTplorations stencils and STAMPlorations stamps.  You willl find more information about this Sunday´s projects by visiting the STAMPlorations blog (do also check the teamies links to their blogs for deeper information on each project)!

Here is my project:

Altered clothes tagStep 1: I had a really nice sized clothes tag on my son´s sweater which I wanted to alter to a present tag. I first covered the logo with a piece of old book paper. Then I took the Trendy Birds 2 stamp set and stamped some flying birds onto the background with a black ink.

Altered clothes tagStep 2: Next I placed the Bubbles Mini stencil over the tag and applied transparent texture paste thru it onto the tag. I let the layer dry overnight.

Altered clothes tagStep 3: After the layer was completely dry, I applied some Tea Dye and Evergreen Bough Distress Ink onto the tag with a blending tool.

Altered clothes tagStep 4: After that I added a punched yellow flower and a yellow button to the tag with a strong paper glue. Next I stamped a sentiment (Trendy Birds 2 set) onto a piece of book paper, fussy cut it and glued it onto the tag. Finally I added a piece of lace which I colored with green Distress Ink. In the end I also added some white texture spray splatters on top of the tag for additional interest.     Altered clothes tag This is how the finished present tag looks like. It will add a nice, personalized detail to a future present :). In fact I might add it to my wedding anniversary present for my husband this weekend :).

Mixed media tag – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone! I am very excited to share my first STAMPlorations/ARTplorations mixed media tutorial with you. Tags are so much fun to create and they make a great addition to a nicely wrapped present, for example. They are also very fast to create. So next time you prepare a present for someone, why not add a DIY, personalized tag to it, to give it a very special touch?

This is my tag, and here is what I did:

1. Take a white tag and a piece of old book paper. Apply paper glue onto the tag and adhere the book paper piece onto it. Cut the residue paper off with scissors.

2. Mix transparent embossing paste/texture paste with turquoise acrylic paint and place the ARTplorations „Bold Florals“ stencil on top of the old book paper part. Take a palette knife and apply the paste through the stencil onto the background. Carefully lift the stencil, rinse it with water and leave the surface to dry. You can also use a heat gun to dry the paste, but be careful that it does not overheat as it starts to form bubbles.

3. Take a strip of the leftover book paper and fold it into a fan. Use light blue/turquoise spray ink to color it. Dry with a heat gun.

4. Next adhere a piece of gold doilie onto the background with paper glue. Then adhere the folded „fan“ piece.

5. Now take yet onother piece of old book paper and use the STAMPlorations „CREATE“ stamp to stamp a sentiment with black ink. Fussy cut the words along the edges and glue them onto the tag. Outline the „without fear“ piece with a black pen.

6. Next fussy cut a few to the theme matching words from a patterened paper. I used 7gypsies „Ordre du Jour“ paper for this purpose. The sentiments work great with the CREATE stamp set.

7. Finally, adhere a piece of green felt – cut in a leaf form – on top of the „fan“ piece and then adhere a turquoise resin flower on top. If you don´t have resin flowers, buttons and paper flowers will also do the trick. Whatever you have at hand. Tags are also a good way of using up the stash, by the way.

8. Attach green and blue fiber/ribbon to the tag and put a few enamel dots for additional interest. Now the tag is finished.

I also created a little start-to-finish video for you to watch. Hope you get inspired!!!

Happy crafting!!

Maritime mixed media tag – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi there! It´s my turn over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today again and I´d like to share a maritime mixed media tag with you!

Sanna LippertI am definitely a summer person and I love sun, sand and sea. When I saw the new Joset Designs Ahoy Stamp set, I immediately wanted to create something summery. That is what inspired me to create this tag.
Sanna Lippert Here is how I created the tag:

  1. Take two white tags, one bigger and the second slightly smaller. Start with the bigger tag. First stamp anchors onto the background with embossing ink.
    Then apply clear embossing powder over the tag. Dab the residue off and heat set with a heat gun.
  2. Now take a blue water solvent ink and apply directly onto the background. Next spray water mist over the area. This way the ink spreads all over. Let dry and then carefully wipe with a damp cloth or a baby wipe over the tag. This will remove the residue ink from the heat embossed anchor images.
  3. Move to the smaller tag. Add a sentiment with black waterproof ink into the middle. Let dry.
  4. Now use a spray ink to color the surface of the tag. Let air dry or use a heat gun for drying.
  5. Take a red Through the Lens – Metal paper and die cut small stars with the Boat die cut set by Joset Designs from that paper.
  6. Take another sheet of Through the Lens paper. This time from the Stone set. Die cut waves with the Boat die cut set.
  7. Add lighter and darker blue spray ink tones to the die cut wave pieces. Let dry.
  8. Glue the waves with paper glue overlappingly. Adhere the stars onto the tag. Attach a strip of burlap yarn with a stapler onto the bottom of the tag.
  9. Use a black paint pen to draw faux stitching around the bigger tag. Adhere a piece of paper straw onto the left side of the tag. Adhere two strips of blue burlap yarn next to the straw. Embellish with ribbon, hemp cord, mini clothespins and metal pins.
  10. Adhere the smaller tag onto the bigger tag. Add stapled elements on top and onto the bottom for additional interest.

Here are detail photos of the finished project:

STAMPlorations Stencil Sunday & Mixed Media Challenge

Hi there lovelies!! Time to share my very first STAMPlorations project with you and today is Stencil Sunday time! Because it´s the first Sunday of the month, it is also time for the monthly Mixed Media Challenge over at the blog.

Here is my project:

Sanna Lippert - Stencil SundayI altered/decorated a fabric bag with stencils, paint, stamps and buttons. I also created a small tag that fits into the bag to go with the fabric piece. Filled with small metal trinkets, this little altered present bag will be a present to one of my scrappy friends. I think she might like the metal bits and pieces…

How did I create this set?

Sanna Lippert - Stencil SundayStep 1: Take the ARTplorations „Bold Florals Mini“ stencil and place it onto the canvas/fabric bag. Add a first layer of High Impact Paint (by Tattered Angels) with a foam brush onto the fabric. Start with the lighter color. Then add the second layer of darker High Impact Paint thru the same stencil, but this time dab the paint only around the center area of the flowers. Let dry.Sanna Lippert - Stencil SundayStep 2: There is now plenty of residue paint on the stencil. Place it down onto the tag the paint area facing towards the tag. Now use a brayer to create a print. Repeat with a new paint layer, when necessary. Next take a pink High Impact Paint and using the end of a paint brush, add little dots into the middle of the flowers. Let air dry.

Sanna Lippert - Stencil SundayStep 3: Add light green Glimmer Mist spray ink onto the tag and use a paper towel to remove residue ink. Then add a stamped sentiment and some bird images onto the bag and the tag. Finally, outline the tag with faux stitching, add fibers and black ink splatters to the tag for decoration. Attach little buttons to the bag for additional interest. Sanna Lippert - Stencil SundayNow fill the bag with the goodies and attach the tag to the bag. Your DIY present bag and present tag are ready :).

12 tags of 2015 – December w/ Canvas Corp Brands product

Hello there, lovelies! I´ve wanted to share this tag for months now, but never came found the time. This tag is created with Canvas Corp Brands product and after the 12 tags of 2015 – December tutorial by Tim Holtz. Here is what I did:

Sanna Lippert1. I took piece of Canvas Corp canvas and placed a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil over the surface. I used washi tape to adhere the stencil on it´s place. Sanna Lippert2. Next I sprayed some Baseboard Mist Paint (Gerber) spray ink over the canvas piece. Sanna Lippert3. I always use the residue ink too, by pressing a watercolor paper over the damp surface. That way I get a second image – it might come handy for a journal or another mixed media project later.  Sanna Lippert4. This is how the misted canvas looks like. Sanna Lippert5. My tag is not very chrismassy, as I used hydrangea petals (punch by Martha Stewart) for the wreath. Here I punched them from a piece of ivory cardstock (also by Canvas Corp Brands.) Sanna Lippert6. I then placed the petal over a dry baby wipe and misted them with Kiwi spray ink (by Tattered Angels – also a Canvas Corp Brand). Sanna Lippert7. Next I adhered the canvas and the wreath pieces on to a tag. I used a piece of golden yarn as a „wreath base“, adhering the green petals along it. Then I added a few silver rhinestones on top of the petals for additional interest. A green ribbon from my stash went on top. Sanna Lippert8. I used some Tim Holtz rub-ons on ivory cardstock, then misted the with Boardwalk Glimmer Mist over the area to create a grayish background. Sanna Lippert9. I cut the sentiments onto banners and adhered them onto the tag. Then I added some grey Glimmer Glaze splatters onto the background. A little Prima pebble also found it´s way onto the tag. Sanna Lippert10. Finally, some white platters had to be added too. I used the Liquitex Titanium White Ink for this purpose. Sanna LippertIn the end I resized the tag abit as I didn´t like the grey tone on top. Notice that I even did the sewing, like on Tim´s tag. And I am definitely really bad in sewing :-).  Sanna LippertThis is the finished tag – and some close-ups to follow too. Really enjoyed making this!!! Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert This tag has been touring with the Canvas Corp booth since CHA 2016. I´m kinda jelous of it, it get´s to see so many fairs I cannot attend 😉 …

Happy crafting,
