Christmas card set – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, it is my turn over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog today again. How many Christmas/Seasonal cards do you send every year? I need quite a big pile for friends and family each year and it has become a tradition to make sure they are all handmade and every single one is different. Quite a challenge, right? Here is a start – a set of four, now I only need 40-something more!

Christmas cards - Sanna Lippert

1. For the first card take a piece of Misty Mauve Soft Finish Cardstock and cut it into a size of 14,5 x 10 cm. Then take the A Way With Words – Noel die cut die and cut 3 pieces out of the Misty Mauve cardstock. Try to align the words in one line symmetrically underneath each other. Next take a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and attach a piece of old book paper onto it using Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Then again gut 3 A Way With Words – Noel die cut pieces from that paper. Now adhere the Misty Mauve cardstock onto a white card base. Then adhere the old book paper Noel die cuts into the middle and use tweezers to adhere and fill in the open spaces with the leftover pieces of the Misty Mauve cardstock. This is a little time consuming, but worth the effort. Finally apply white ink splatters onto the surface. Let dry properly and then attach a matching ribbon.

Then take Rosebud and White Soft Finish Cardstock and the Winter Mittens die cut set and cut the ribbon and the solid mitten pieces with the Rosebud tone and the upper pieces from the white Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere onto each other either using Clear Double Sided Adhesive before die cutting or using a good paper glue afterwords. Decorate the mittens with glitter glue and adhere them onto their places. Finally take a sentiment from the Winter Sentiments die cut set and stamp it onto a piece of white cardstock. In the banner with pink Distress Ink and attach to the card with a stapler. The second card is finished.

Color it light blue with a spray ink and let dry. Take the Through the Lens – Wood paper pack and die cut the Sled from the wooden paper. Take a piece of old book paper for die cutting the poinsettias and the leaves. Stamp a sentiment with Winter Sentiments clear stamp set onto a piece of old book paper with black stamp ink and fussy cut along the edges. Attach a piece of hemp cord onto the sled and ink the poinsettia and the leaves with red and green Distress Ink. Adhere the blue background paper onto a white card base, then adhere the sled and the flowers on their places. Decorate with gems, adhere the sentiment on it´s place and outline the card with a black pen.

Christmas cards - Sanna Lippert4. For the fourth card again cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock into a size of 14 x 10 cm. Place it inside the Flower Mosaic embossing folder and run it thru your die cutting machine. Next take the smallest Entwined Circle die cut die and cut a piece of green felt with it. After that stamp a Winter Sentiment onto white cardstock and color the background with light green Distress Ink. Fussy cut along the lines. Next all you need to do is to adhere all the pieces onto their places and decorate with a felt bow and some cork stars.

Christmas cards - Sanna LippertYou can of course create sets of each card while you are at it. That way you will be done with your Christmas card creating in no time. I will need to come up with more cards, so I bet you will be seeing a few more popping up also over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog too!

Happy creating,
Sanna

A set of maritime ATC cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi there, my turn again today at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog to share a project. This time it is a set of maritime ATC cards.

Sanna LippertI love summer, sand and sea and therefore chose to create ATC cards around this theme. The new Joset Designs die cut dies are just perfect for creating such artist trading cards!! Here are the steps on how to create these ATC cards:

Sanna LippertStep 1: Cut a piece of the Through the Lens – Wood patterned paper into a size of 64mm x 89 mm (or 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inch).Sanna LippertStep 2: Apply golden texture paste onto the piece of paper through a stencil with a palette knife. Let air dry.Sanna LippertStep 3: Take the „wave“ die cut die from the Boat die cut set and cut a piece of Soft Finish Cardstock – Mustard with the die. Adhere to the left side of the ATC.Sanna LippertStep 4: Apply some black ink splatters onto the background. Let air dry. Attach a piece of twine with a stapler onto the background, on top of the Mustard cardstock piece.Sanna LippertStep 5: Adhere another piece of Through the Lens – Wood patterned paper onto a sheet of Clear Double Sided Adhesive and use the boat´s wheel die cut from the Boat die cut set to cut 3 pieces from the paper. Adhere next to the Mustard cardstock piece.Sanna LippertStep 6: Use an old typewrite to write a sentiment for the ATC card, outline the words with a black pen.
Sanna LippertStep 7: For the second ATC, use the negative piece of the previously used Through the Lens – Wood patterned paper and adhere that onto a piece of Chocolate Soft Finish Cardstock. Add a wavy border and a piece of twine, like on the previous ATC card. Ink the edges with Distress Ink Vintage photo. Die cut some more boat´s wheel pieces, this time from the Mustard toned cardstock. Attach those onto the open spaces (include the whole piece, do not remove any parts). Apply Glossy Accents to mimic the boat´s wheel shape. Let air dry properly.Sanna LippertStep 8: Again add a typewrite sentiment and outline the words with a black pen. For additional interest, adhere small wood veneer pieces on top.
Sanna LippertStep 9: Again cut a piece of Through the Lens – Wood patterned paper into the ATC card size. Take a piece of Brick Red Soft Finish Cardstock and attach a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back. Use the Seaweed die cut die to cut a piece of coral. Adhere onto the background. Don´t throw the negative piece away, we will use it later. I love using both the positive and negative parts!
Sanna LippertStep 10: Cut the Seahorse from a piece of white cardstock. The pieces are again backed with Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Color with blue and pink Distress Ink.Sanna LippertStep 11: Adhere the Seahorse next to the coral piece. Apply some glitter glue here and there on the Seahorse piece for a fun detail. Sanna LippertStep 12: Draw circles with a white pen onto the background to add movement and interest. Sanna LippertStep 13: Add a typewriter sentiment, outline with a black pen and add doodling around the edges. Sanna LippertStep 14: For the last ATC, again cut a piece of Through the Lens – Wood pattered paper into a ATC size, then cut a piece of Teal Soft Finish Cardstock in size of 4,5cm x 5,7 cm and adhere the negative coral piece on top of the teal one. Sanna LippertStep 15: Attach light blue, small eyelets onto each corner of the Brick Red cardstock piece. Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertStep 16: Draw white circles onto the background, then adhere the Brick Red cardstock piece into the middle. Next adhere a typewriter sentiment, outlined with a black pen, on top. Add glitter glue details here and there onto the blue coral piece. Finally add outlining with a black and white pen and some wood veneer piece for additional detail. This is what the finished pieces look like:Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertI hope you get inspired to create some maritime ATC cards yourself!!

Lollypop die set possibilities – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi there, it´s my turn again over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today. I´m sharing two cards created with the Lollypop die cut die set.

Sanna LippertAgain this card idea started from my previous project, the Lollypop cards. I had a negative piece of white die cut paper on my table, cut with the Lollypop die. I looked at it and I suddenly saw lemons! This is how these cards came together:

Sanna LippertStep 1: I used the Lollypop die cut leftover piece and placed a Fitted Circle die (the smallest one of them) on top of the paper and ran it thru the die cutting machine. As a result I had a set of „lemons“.
Sanna LippertStep 2: Spray yellow and green spray ink onto the pieces. This way you have lemons and limes.
Sanna LippertStep 3: Cut circles from Through the Lens – Wood paper with the smallest Fitted Circles die. Adhere these pieces together to create lemons and limes.
Sanna LippertStep 4: Finish the card by cutting a piece of Through the Lens – Wood paper as a card background. Align the lemon and lime pieces overlappingly on one side of the card. Use an old typewriter to type a sentiment. Outline with black pen and add black spray ink splatters for additional detail.

Sanna LippertStep 5: Now for the second card. The Lollypop die set is really very versatile. You can use the Lollypop to create balloons too! I used an old canvas paper leftover piece and cut balloons with the Lollypop die.
Sanna LippertStep 6: Use a Through the Lens – Metal patterned paper as a card background. Attach ivory hemp cord to the balloons and adhere the balloons with 3D foam squares onto the card. Use an old typewrite to create a suitable sentiment. Outline with a black and a white pen and add white ink splatters for additional interest. Here are the finished cards:

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertI love using the dies in various ways and finding new way of using them in my card making projects. Imagine all the fun ways you can use a particular die set!!!

Happy crafting,
Sanna

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.

I hope you enjoyed reading through this step-by-step photo tutorial and get inspired to try some of these ideas on your own future projects!!

Have fun creating,
Sanna
