Happy Easter

Hello there! Michelle here, sharing an Easter Slimline Card. I used a few of the newest products from the 2021 Spring Release

  • Happy Easter Posh Script Die
  • Bunny Face Die
  • Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles Die
  • Spring Plaid Slim Paper Pack
  • Vibrant Violet 6x6 Paper Pack

A traditional slimline measure 3 1/2 by 8 1/2, so I used the slimline stitched rectangles die slightly smaller than the card base and die cut the largest panel. The smallest slimline stitched rectangle die can be any size you choose. I chose a much smaller one so I could see more of the pattern paper.

*TIP: When I die cut pattern paper I always use the same die and cut an extra piece from a sturdier cardstock ( mine is white) and adhere them together.

I adhered the pattern paper panels to the card base with foam tape. I die cut the Happy Easter sentiment three times and adhered them together. Than adhere the sentiment to the center panel.

I die cut the Bunny Face and colored him with Copic Markers. I added a small twine bow. I adhered the bunny to the center panel with foam tape.

For a finishing touch I added some sequins.

Thanks for stopping by for a peek!

Hope you have a great week!

Wildflower Garden Gate Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone.  Hope everyone is doing well.  I am having fun with all the new wild flower dies from the spring release.  I have gone a little "crazy" and created a wild flower garden with a gate fold.  This is going to be a long project but worth it in the end! 

E9A12AB7-5DDE-418B-877A-BB344B0D4000_1_201_a

Card base:

Cut 80 lb card base to 5 1/2 tall by 8 and 3/4" wide. Score along the width at 2 1/8" and 2 1/4" flip the base around to score the other end at the same measurements.  Cut at the 2/14" down to 1/2" and cut into the 2 1/4" leaving a 1/2" flap.  Fold on the 2 score lines. The 1/2" flaps are for the outer grass and gate.

Flowers:

For the shaping of the flowers you will need 2 stylist small and medium large and a foam pad.  Lightly mist the flowers before shaping them. This will help the paper fold without cracking.  Below is the paper color and technique used with each die.  When die cutting the flower stems  (except the lavender) position the die to get a small section of the flower base to glue the flower on.

Seed Stems Die: Die cut white 110lb paper for the seeding flower and the darkest mossy green from the Lush Green paper pack for the stem.  To color the flower base use Antique Linen distress marker to color all put the stem.  Then take a water brush and lightly blend the ink.  Color the seeds using Rosewood Marvy marker.  No shaping needed for this flower.  Just glue the flower to the stem.  You will need 2 to 3 of these flowers.

Lavender Stem Die: Die cut just the flower from the a shade lighter than the deepest purple from the Ocean Blue paper back. Die cut the full flower and stem from the darker light yellow green from Such green paper pack. Trim any excess stem from the flower portion. Color the flower part of the green stem with Violet Marvy marker, making sure to go around the sides of the paper.   Shape the flower from the backside using the smallest stylist from pulling from the end of the flower to the center. From the front side use the smallest stylist to flatten out just the center of the flower.  Glue on the stem.  it will not perfectly line up because we want to show some of the darker color, shadows, to give the flower depth.  You will need 6.

Wildflower Stems: Die cut the small flower from the 2nd lightest pink from Vibrant Violet paper pack and die cut the smaller flower from the  lightest pink from Vibrant Violet paper pack.  Die cut the stem and leaves die from the darkest green from the Lush Green paper pack. Color the small flower Bubblegum Pink Marvy marker, flicking the color from the base of the flower to halfway up the petals.  Use the same process for the larger flower but with Worn Lipstick Distress marker. Take a water brush and lightly blend the ink.  Shape the smallest flower from the backside, use the smallest stylist to pull down from top of each petal to the base of flower.  Take the larger stylist and use circular motions at the base to "cup" the flower. Set aside. For the larger flower trim off any excess stems and shape from the front of the flower using the same technique as the small flower.  Glue the flowers together lining up the base of the flower, then glue on the stem.  You will need 3 flowers and 3 leaves.

Gerber Stems: Die cut stem from the darker light yellow green from Such green paper pack. Die cut flower from the list shade of red from the Berry Red paper pack. Color the flower with Victorian Velvet Distress marker, dotting the center with marker, adding more color to the bottom section of the flower.  Color the bottom of the petals from the center out. Then take a water brush and lightly blend the ink. Shape from the back side with the smallest stylist from the end of the flower stem to the center.  Using the larger stylist to the flower base, making circular motions to cup the flower.  Turn flower over and use the small stylist to push down the petal where it meets the base.  Glue to stem.  You will need 3.

Daisy Stems: Die cut the both flower from the  lightest yellow from Sunny Orange paper pack.  Die cut the stem and leaves die from the darkest green from the Lush Green paper pack. Color the flower petals with the fine point Brilliant Yellow Marvy maker.  Flicking the color up the petal where it meets the base. Using the full tip of the marker dot the center with marker, adding more color to the bottom section of the flower. Take Vintage Photo Distress marker and dot the bottom of the flower base.  Blend with a water Bruch.  Shape and assemble using the same method as the Gerber Stems. You will need 2.

CAED0F5B-55B5-4641-85F8-B9465FD9F857_1_201_a

Grass boarder:

Die Cut the Wild Grass Boarder from the darkest green from the Lush Green paper pack twice. One  should have a 1/2" base  then cut into 2 strip of 2 1/8".  The other strip should be a 3/4" based, 4 1/4" long.  Shade the bottom half of the grass boarder with Rustic Forest Distress Ink. White emboss the Birthday sentiments form Big and Little Word stamp set on the 3/4" by 4 1/4" grass strip.

Fence:

Die cut the Poppy Stamps fence from woodgrain paper.  Shade the top and bottom on the fence with Pomis Stone Distress Ink. Shape the fence back side using the flower shaping technique. 

Inside Sky panel:

Cut the 2nd lightest blue from the Ocean Blue  paper pack to A2 size base.  

Assembly:

Glue the sky panel to inside of the card base.  Glue the 1/2" grass strip to each side of the gate fold.  Glue gate on top of the grass strip.  At the bottom inside of the card add 1/2" of tape runner.  This is to hold the flowers in place while  arranging them  Add double sided foam tape to the 3/4" grass strip and adhere to the bottom of the card hiding the tape.

Just a Note Cards with Layered Flowers in Coral Madras Plaids
by Anne Thompson

Today I have three Just a Note cards in layers of Coral Madras Plaids with layered Coral Madras Plaids flowers using three of the newest die sets: LAYERED DAISIES 94472; LAYERED FRESH FLOWERS 94474; and LAYERED COSMOS 94473. 

IMG_3030-ink

I used many of the different coral plaids from the MADRAS PLAIDS CORAL AND GREEN 6X6 pad PP1013 for both layering the card fronts and for die cutting the layered flowers.  I added JUST A NOTE POSH SCRIPT 94527, just the words and not the background, cut in gold foil paper from POLISHED FOIL PAD PP1001. And I added just the leaves from DAISY STEMS 94538 cut from orange cardstock in the SUNNY ORANGE COLLECTION 6X6 pad SP1002.

IMG_3035-ink

Card One--LAYERED DAISIES

IMG_3038-ink

Card Two--LAYERED FRESH FLOWERS

IMG_3038-ink

Card Three--LAYERED COSMOS

IMG_3040-ink

I die cut an extra flower from each set and used it inside the corresponding card.  These cards are perfect to send anytime and would also make a great gift packaged up with envelopes, stamps, and a pretty pen.  Think I need to make more using some of the other madras plaids papers!

Happy Crafting!

Cut an 8-⅝" x 7-¼" piece of white cardstock.  Prep the new Slim Diagonal Collage by rubbing it briskly with scrunched waxed paper to help release the little pieces.  Cut the cardstock with the Slim gDiagonal Collage.  Score and fold the cardstock at 3-⅝" for a slimline card.

Cut an 8-½" x 3-¼ piece of white cardstock.  Center it (temporarily) under the collage cutout and lightly pencil-mark the corners of the collage.  Attach Cornelia Violet 1" Washi Tape to cover slightly beyond the pencil marks.  Attach the rectangle behind the cardfront.

Cut the detailed Sylvan Buttterfly and Glade Butterfly from the Frosted Glitter Pad violet sheet.  Cut the solid Sylvan and Glade butterflies from scraps of ink-blended cardstock.  

Stamp the greeting - from the new Joyful Moments Clear Stamp Set - on the pale lavender dotted Springtime Bouquet Stripes and Dots 6x6 sheet with Imagine Crafts Neon Purple.  Heat-set the ink.

Punch ¼" dots of the purple Frosted Glitter Pad sheet.  Attach the greeting, then add the butterflies using foamtape.

Thank You Daisies
by Trina Pham

3B2834CE-0145-4671-AC3B-448881976A4B

Hello everyone.  Today I am sharing a super easy thank you card made with the Layered Daisies die from the 2021 Spring collection.  I drew inspiration from this year’s Pantone colors Ultimate Gray and Illuminating.

The daisies were die cut from Bristol paper.  To make them look fuller, each daisy consists of two offset pieces.  The centers were die cut from the lightest yellow sheet in the Sunny Orange paper pack.  Copic Sketch markers YR24 and YR 21 were used to add shading to them.  

FE59DFC9-1EE6-49B3-B1D5-9131BD1EA67A

Arranged and adhered the daisies onto a light gray panel from my stash that had been die cut with the Pinpoint Leaf Plate.  The Thank You Posh Script sentiment was die cut from Bristol paper three times and stacked for dimension onto its black shadow piece.  Added Crystal Glaze for some shine and dimension to finish.

5FB87E94-D634-43C7-8E9A-B7F3CFC8D2F9

And that is all from me for today.   Thank you for joining me.  Have a wonderful weekend and week.

Just a Note
by Donna Sledzik

IMG_2318

Hello everyone! Today I have another card featuring the new 2021 Spring release.

IMG_2316

To create this card, I stamped the background on brown cardstock, using Distress Oxide Inks.  I used the Misti Stamping platform to do this so I could stamp the image multiple times to build up the color.  I used Mowed Lawn, Mustard Seed and Bundled Sage Oxide inks for this card.

Next, I brushed the flowers with a little Mustard Seed ink and used a white gel pen to add some details to the leaves, flower centers and berries. Using white ink, I spattered the paper.

I cut the paper at an angle and glued it to a yellow cardstock layer. Next, I cut a thin strip of gold foil paper and glued that to the yellow cardstock right under the brown background piece. 

IMG_2421

I die cut the background of my sentiment from white cardstock and the words from gold foil paper. I glued the foil words on top of the white background and used foam tape to adhere it to my card.

IMG_2420

To finish the card, I added a few embellishments and that's it!

Thanks for stopping by today!

The new Arched Collage and Color Wheel 6x6's create a perfect rainbow - like on Michelle's Rainbow Shaker card.  Or add a watercolored Wrapped Stitched Rectangle, Color Wheel 6x6's bright pastels, and Graceful Garden glitter diecuts for a totally different look.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another way to take advantage of these great dies and papers from our 2021 Spring Collection.

Cut watercolored paper with the second-largest Wrapped Stitched Slim Rectangles die.  Cut the rectangle with Arched Collage.  Save the offcuts for another project.

Cut 3" strips of the Color Wheel cardstock in different widths (from left to right) - 1-¼", 1", ¾", 1", 1". They're from these sets - Twilight Purple, Vibrant Violet, Sunny Orange and Fresh Aqua.

Tape them together to keep them intact, then attach them behind the Arched Collage.  There are 9 Color Wheel 6x6 Sets - a total of 108 beautiful colors!  Use your favorite shades (or the recipient's) and vary the widths for different looks.  Or stack the colors vertically, like a real rainbow.

Cut a white Thank You Posh Script background.  Cut the delicate top layer from the pink Graceful Garden Glitter Pad sheet.  

Cut Stitched Rain Boots (a classic favorite for many years) and punch ¼" dots from the glitter sheet too.

Attach everything to a white slimline card (3-½" x 8-½") - use foamtape for boot on the right.

Shaped Mailbox Giftcard Holders
by Trina Pham

7FDD3240-C7AA-4751-96B0-1D1AE2E03605

Hello everyone!  I don’t know about you, but I’m loving the 2021 spring release!  There are so many amazing products that it was a little challenging figuring ou where to start. 😂  But I ended up creating a shaped mailbox birthday gift card holder two ways, using the Nested Globes dies.  

37693802-C9EC-4A6A-9C1E-D14366D7C0DE

First up is the more involved masculine version.  The largest globe die in the set measures 5.1”x4”.  I wanted to make it A2 height size, so the second darkest blue sheet from the Ocean Blue paper pack was trimmed to 5.5”x 4”.  The dome was die cut on the one end, leaving the other end untouched.  Next, took an A2 size white top folding card base and trimmed it down to 4” wide and approximately 1/16” shorter in length.  Partial die cut the dome part on the card base, ensuring the cutting edge extends past the fold like so...

0EE74FCE-3A93-43C8-88BE-EE4D113EFFFC

...resulting in this.

68C0328E-60D6-4408-BAEA-51209EE1F8A3

Next, align and adhere the blue piece onto the card base using temporary adhesive.  Use the third largest die in the set and die cut the “mailbox legs” using the straight end of the die.

FFD8B94E-577F-4442-9E2D-076A3328C500

With the Ocean Blue paper being 110 lb and my card base 220 lb. (110lb. folded), I was not sure if the die would cut through it all.  I ran it through a few times with shims and luckily it worked and didn’t break my machine. 😂

762857F0-4008-4D47-9A4A-6EE3C9033F8B

Using the same third largest die, partial die cut the blue piece like so.

AFC0C66A-ABA6-4BAC-8622-574784D123AF

Score between the two end points to create the hinged door that when opened will reveal the gift card.

483D841D-6598-4166-A216-28FC5362ABD3

To complete this gift card holder, the Birthday Mail Posh Script was die cut from the darkest colour paper in the Ocean Blue paper pack and from Bristol paper, then stacked and offset.  Used two dies from Rectangle Basics to die cut a frame twice from the first blue colour paper.  The handle were two 2.25”x0.25” strips each scored at 0.25” and 0.5” on one end and adhered to create a loop with each other.  Adhered the darkest blue colour paper to the card base behind the opening.  Added adhesive to the perimeter and assembled to finish.

685F5F18-C2D9-47BC-A529-E396DB6EA274

The second feminine version is simpler and the colours inspired by this month’s Pretty Purples challenge.  I made this one the same size as the largest die (5.1”x4”) and followed the same steps above to create the base and front.  But instead of a hinged door, I just used the smallest globe die to cut a mail slot for the gift card.

8AF69881-743A-4CFC-96D8-8245C6206451

The Spring Plaid and Twilight Purple paper packs along with the Glade Butterfly were used for this one. Everything is pretty straight forward, but if you have any questions, please leave them in the comments. 

C6165775-FE5B-40C8-8EB5-45D5616F3047

And that’s it for me today.  Thank you for joining me.  Have a wonderful day.

Rainbow Shaker Card
by Michelle Bala

37

Hello there! Michelle here, sharing a rainbow shaker card! I used the newest Spring 2021 supplies!   

37

I created the card base, a  3 1/2 x 8 1/2  slimline style. I die cut the panel with the Slimline Basic Rectangle Die. 

Center and secure the Arched Collage Die, die cut.  Trim a piece of clear acetate and secure behind the die cut arch. 

Using the same Arched Collage Die, die cut each color of the rainbow. Save the extra cut outs for later projects.

Place each rainbow color into their perspective slot in the die cut panel.  Secure with washi tape.

Turn the panel upside down and add a layer of glue to each color arch. 

Turn panel right side up and center it on top of card base. Press firmly on rainbow arches. After a minute, gently remove washi tape.

Stamp the sentiment in the top, right corner.   Turn die cut panel upside down and add a double layer of foam tape framing out the rainbow.

Scatter a mix of sequins on top of the rainbow. Secure the top, die cut panel over the sequins and rainbow.

Die cut and adhere the butterfly.

Enjoy shaking!

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone celebrating today!  Decisions, decisions...should I design another Valentine, a "let it snow," or a Bunny Face card for today's post?  Bunny Face won - it's too irresistible to wait for spring.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a sunny-bright card on a snowy Seattle weekend.

I used a ton of new Spring Collection designs and colors - they (amazingly) all fit onto one slimline card.  Dave's always designed great dies, stamps and 6x6's - now the introduction of 9 Color Wheel paper sets makes it even easier to create cards. They'll add bright splashes of color to my card kits for Impress and Stamps+Memories too.

We have Spring Plaid Slim papers too - 65#, double-sided, with gold highlights on one side.  Cut a sheet of it with the new Slim Basic Rectangle Layers 2.2" x 7.2" die.  It's great to have this slim set for perfect layers - wonky handcut rectangles are too obvious on slim cards!

Cut the Wooden Alpha letters from the Twilight Purple Color Wheel sheet - run the dies through the machine with the grain (lengthwise) for great results.  

Cut Layered Daisies from the Sunny Orange (2 yellow shades) and Fresh Green Color Wheel sheets. 

Cut Bunny Face from Open Studio Watercolor Paper.  Cut the ear sections from the pink Delicate Pastels Glitter Pad sheet.  Glue a tiny scrap of pink behind the nose section.  Cut the month/nose section again from the purple sheet and attach it behind the face for a slightly offset shadow effect.

Stamp the greeting - from the new Big and Little Reverse Words Clear Stamp and Die Set - on white with Neon Purple.  Emboss it with detail clear powder.  Cut it with the stamp set's die and trim it to 1-¼".

Attach everything to a white slimline card - use foamtape for the greeting.
