Let´s Ketchup card – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, it´s time for my September guest blog post tutorial  with Elizabeth Craft Designs today. I am creating a fun and easy-to-do masculine card using the Backyard Barbeque die cut set and plenty of Soft Finish Cardstock on this month´s card.

Here is how I created the card:

Step 1: Using the Backyard Barbeque die cut set and True Blue, Sunflower, Ladybug Red and Café au Lait Soft Finish Cardstock tones, die cut the grill, flame, tire and ketchup bottle images with your die cutting machine.

Step 2: Take a slightly smaller piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and cut into size. Now adhere the Wood Effect paper onto the precut cardstock piece with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3: Adhere the previously die cut pieces onto the card base using a glue pen adhesive. Fussy cut the white label piece onto the ketchup bottle and adhere on place.

Step 4: Ink around the Wood Effect paper edges with black ink to create more contrast to the card.

Step 5: Using the Misti Stamping Tool stamp the „Let´s Ketchup“ sentiment onto a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and cut into a banner following the natural form of the stamp image.

Step 6: Adhere the sentiment and the ketchup bottle on place and decorate with black Liquid Pearl dots to add interest and detail to the card. Let dry.

Step 7: Adhere the finished piece onto a white cardbase.

This is how the finished card looks like.


I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial – see you again next month.

Happy crafting,

Glitter striped Christmas card set – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello there, everyone! I´m up with a card tutorial again over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today. This time I played with various Silk Microfine Glitter tones in blue. Here are the cards I created:

I chose to use blue(ish) tones of Silk Microfine Glitter on these cards, trying to keep fairly monochromatic in my color tones, since the glitter itself adds lots of sparckle to the cards. So even though there is quite much shine goodness going on on these particular cards, they are still very clean and simple in style.

I´ve also used both the negative and positive die cut pieces here. That way nothing goes to waste and I get two cards done at once. For more details on how I created the cards, hop over to the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog to read the full tutorial. Here is a video for you to watch, to get a better idea of how the glitter surface was created. Hope you enjoy it!

Happy day – TAGplorations challenge reminder

Hello there, everybody! I hope you haven´t forgotten about the new TAGplorations monthly challenge over at STAMPlorations blog. It´s a fun one, so I hope you find time to play along. Incase you haven´t already, here is a kind reminder to do so :-)…

With a reminder tag project:

I´ve used pretty much the same techniques like on my reveal day project (see here) on these tags, except that I´ve added a die cut word on top of the colored and stamped image and some word stickers to go with that. And this time I didn´t make a card, but left the tag as it is. I figured, I could combine the cards and the tags with giving them to someone with a present, maybe.

I´ve again added some faux stitching and used Distress Ink for coloring. The stamped image is again heat embossed with white embossing ink and the die cut word as well as the alpha stickers got a layer of Glossy Accents on them for dimension. The little flags on the upper right corner are from a stickers sheet by Jenni Bowlin. Again trying to use some of my older stash here and there :).

I really do like these framed flower stamp images from STAMPlorations alot. I´m not very talented in coloring, but these are fun to color, because it does not show here if you are not that good at it :). So now it is again your turn to get creative! Do take a look at the project my DT colleagues have created for your inspiration and then grab some goodies and start creating!! There is still plenty of time to join in!!!

Happy crafting,

Wishing you Happiness – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone, it´s again my turn to share a mixed media tutorial with you over at the STAMPlorations blog. This time I created a set of fall coloured tags. Here is how they turned out:

I´ve used various STAMPlorations products on my tags (die cut dies, stencils and stamps). The paper is from my older stash, but it works really well with the fall color theme. 

I´ve added a heavy body orange acrylic paint thru a stencil onto the background of each tag. After that I stamped some flowers onto the leftover paper pieces and fussy cut those. Then I added some color to them with Neocolor II water-soluble wax pastels and decorated them with liquid pearls.

There are all kinds of bits and bobs on these tags – including some washi tape, twine, Glimmer Glaze, ribbons and Distress Stickles. I really like playing with the STAMPlorations product lines. Everything works together so well and it is so much fun to add layers and details.  Of course I´ve again also prepared a start-to-finish video for you to watch! I hope you like it!

Let´s stay creative,

Awesome – Studio Forty

Hello there! How about a quick card share? I´ve made this card with Studio Forty product after I finished this layout. So basically using up all my leftover colored and stamped dreamcatcher images on this card and some of the leftover paper pieces. Here is what I ended up with:

If you watch this video, you can see how and with what I colored the stamped images. Other than that I have just layered the patterned papers from the Moonchild collection on top of each other and distressed the edges of the feather paper abit.

Next I´ve built the dreamcatcher from the patterend paper and the stamp set from the Moonchild collection. Then I´ve colored the images and fussy cut them with small scissors.

Finally I added some liquid pearls and Stickles for additional interest and shine, doodled around the edges and added a stamped, fussy cut sentiment. That´s it. I really like this collection very much, the colors are so beautiful and all the patterns works so well together. Wishing you a lovely, creative day, peeps!!!
