Lollypop card set – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi there, it´s my turn again today at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog to share a set of cards, created with the inlay pieces of the Honeycomb die cut die.

Sanna LippertI always like to save all the bits and pieces I have left from my previous projects as they are perfect for various projects. These inlay pieces of the Honeycomb die cut die create perfect backgrounds for cards. Here is what I did:

Sanna LippertStep 1: Take a 14 x 10 cm sized piece of white cardstock and color it with Brusho.

Sanna LippertStep 2: Take the Honeycomb die backing and use it as a position guide for the inlay pieces. Place it on top of the bold background and start adhering the inlay parts. This way the distance between the inlay pieces will stay the same.

Sanna LippertStep 3: Ink the inlay pieces with blue Distress Ink and cut 6 pieces with the Lollypop piece.
Sanna LippertStep 4: Before adhering these piece on their places, ink them with red Distress Ink.
Sanna LippertStep 5: Attach some green rhinestones into the middle of each Lollypop piece.
Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertStep 6: Stamp the Seed of Thought Red Rubber Stamp – Take Time stamp sentiment with black ink onto a piece of white cardstock, ink with blue Distress Ink over it and adhere it to the card.

Ink the background blue (or use Blue Soft Finish Cardstock) and add some black ink splatters onto the background before gluing down the blue inked Lollypop parts. This is how the finished cards look like:

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertI find it really interesting to use both the positive and the negative pieces of the die cutting process. There are so many possibilities to use the die cut dies and by changing the colors even the same card idea can be transformed into a totally new look.

Have fun creating,

For the Love of Circles – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello everyone, time for my second Elizabeth Craft Designs project for February. This time I would like to share a set of two cards created using the Stitched and Fitted Circles dies. I love using basic forms in various ways since they are so very versatile and never go out of fashion! Here are the cards I created:

Sanna LippertSanna LIppertLets start with the first card:

Sanna Lippert1: Cut a piece of Soft Finish Cardstock into a size of 5 1/4 x 4.0 inch and place 5 circle dies over the paper to die cut those areas. Run thru the die cut machine. Remove the circles and save them for the second card.

Sanna Lippert2: Take a second piece of Soft Finish Cardstock in the same size and add purple, blue and red spray ink onto it. Let dry.

Sanna Lippert3: Adhere the die cut “negative piece” over the misted one and ink the edges of the card base with light blue Distress Ink. The card base should be slightly bigger than the die cut piece, so that the inked edges show and create a nice contrast to the white top piece.

Sanna LippertSanna Lippert4: Take the Seeds of Thought Red Rubber Stamp – Take Time and stamp the sentiment inside the misted circle areas. Stamp only a part of the sentence per circle. This way the readers eye will wander from one circle to antoher.

Sanna LIppertSanna LIppert5: Add some random black ink splatters here and there for additional interest. Let dry properly and then ink the edges of the piece with black Distress Ink for more interest. Glue on card base.

Sanna Lippert6: For the second card use the die cut circle pieces, a 4 2/4 x 4 2/4 sized piece of Soft Finish Carstock and a greenish blue piece of cardstock as a card base.

Sanna LippertSanna Lippert7: Use the same spray ink tones to color the circles, like on the previous card. Next ink the edges with black Distress Ink for more depth.

Sanna Lippert8: Adhere the white Soft Finish Cardstock piece onto the card base, then adhere the circles in a group. Add faux stitching with a black pen around the edges.

Sanna LippertSanna LIppert9: Use the same Take Time rubber stamp to stamp a sentiment next to the circles. Add some black ink splatters for additional interest and let dry. Here are close-up photos of the finished cards.

Sanna LippertyThese cards are very easy to create, yet thru the bold colors used, the circle images really stand out. I hope you enjoy this simple and easy to do idea and get those circle die cut dies out for play!

Have fun!
