Metallic toned die cut cards – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone and happy Thursday!! Today I´m back at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog with another guest design team member post. This card idea started from idea to use white Soft Finish Cardstock in a different way. Also, due to the pandemic weddings had to be postponed by many people this summer and are now slowly taking place, the need for wedding cards moved to fall. Thus the love theme today.

For this card idea I´ve used only the same dies and yet they all look so different. It´s because I´ve treated them with a metallic media. My starting point by each of these cards was the same; white Soft Finish Cardstock!

All 3 cards still look so different due to the color choices. The dies are the same, only the colours vary. And the background paper I´ve used for matting everything.

I´ve again recorded a step-by-step video for you to watch – hope you like the idea!

Be sure to check out the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog for written steps and more photos of all cards.

I hope you could inspire you today to see the versatility of plain white cardstock. There are so many ways to give it a different look and it´s always a great starting point for many projects.

Also I would like to note that hoarding various media is not a good idea. This happened to me recently when I opened one of my Nuvo Embellishment Mousses. They had ALMOST completely dried up! I was able to save a few, but also had to toss quite a few. So, take my word for it: use the product you buy. Use it before it get´s old! So these cards were also an opportunity to use up some of those mousses. You might be seeing other metallized projects showing up here on my blog – I learned my lesson and am for sure going to use the product now and not be sorry later :).

I´ll be back next month with another Elizabeth Craft Designs guest member project. Hope to see you then!!

Happy crafting,

Celebrate Christmas Tag – Elizabeth Craft Designs

   Stamped Christmas tag - Sanna Lippert Hello everyone, today I´d like to share one last Christmas project for this season with you. I created a blue-red-white colored present tag with Elizabeth Craft Designs products and I hope it will make it´s recipient happy. This background is so much fun to make!

Here is what I did:

Take the „Winter Sentiments“ clear stamp set and using a waterproof stamp ink, stamp the word „joy“ repeatedly onto the background.

Now take a light and darker blue and a red marker and start coloring the words by starting with the red, then going over to the lighter blue and finishing the third word with the darker blue tone. Then repeating this order until all the words are colored. This creates a pleasing pattern for the eye.

Next die cut the word „Celebrate“ from a piece of ivory toned cardstock. Using another sentiment from the „Winter Sentiments“ clear stamp set, partially stamp only the word „Christmas“ with a black ink. Then fussy cut it and color the piece with the red marker.

Then cut a piece of blue felt and adhere the die cut and stamped words onto that piece. Attach the felt onto the tag with a stapler. Fussy cut a deer image and adhere onto the tag with paper glue. Attach a ribbon on top and embellish with wooden stars which you can color red with the marker. Add a touch of glitter glue on top for additional sparkle.

Jolly Christmas cards – Canvas Corp

Hello lovelies, today I´m sharing another set of Christmas cards with you. This time in classical red-white-green tones. I used the Canvas Corp Mix & Match paper pad called Jolly Christmas for this set with some red and green spray inks by Tattered Angels.

Sanna Lippert - Jolly Christmas cards

These three cards are really easy and simple to make. The only „messy“ part is the coloring of the canvas pieces with spray inks :). Other than that it´s just mainly paper layering. So if you need a few quick and easy cards, this type might be the one to go for.

The fun part about the Canvas Corp Mix & Match paper pads is that you have pattened papers and special papers (like the corrugated cardstock above) in the pad with some burlap and canvas in matching colors. So you can pretty much work with one set and make a pile of themed creations with just one set. The have a set for different themes, like gardening, coffee, kitchen, bewerages, baking, travel etc. Go to the Canvas Corp shop and type „mix and match“ into the search icon and you will find all the sets available :).

These cards are also created with the same paper pad as a starting point. I then die cut a word with a die cut die  (by Elizabeth Craft Desings) as a centerpiece for my cards. The canvas behind the die cut word is also from the paper pad, but I toned them red and green with Tattered Angels Glimmer and Chalkboard Mists.

Wishing you all a lovely, creative weekend!!!

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,
