Happy Birthday


DSC_0279-1-764x1024
Hi, Jackie Smith here. As an owner of a beloved pet, I am crazy about the new Puppies Peel-Offs n the latest  release from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I decided to make a Happy Birthday card for other fellow dog lovers.
Instructions:
1. Create card base from aqua colored cardstock. Cut 7"x 10" rectangle; score and fold in half (5"x 7" finished card size)
2. Cut light blue paper 4 3/4"x 6 3/4" and adhere to card front using double-sided adhesive. Cut light brown paper 41/2"x 6 1/2" and adhere on top of the blue paper again using double-sided adhesive.
3. Cut one accordion panel from blue paper using the Katie Label Accordion. Trim off the long side tab and cut out the center label. Adhere frame and label to card front as shown in the picture at the beginning of this blog post.

4. Place black Puppies Peel-offs, black Gifts Peel-Offs as well as the black Balloons Peel-Offs onto white cardstock with double sided adhesive on top. Cover Peel-offs with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and polish glitter with your finger. Use a brush to brush off the excess glitter. Follow Els’ step by step instructions for this technique HERE.

5. Color puppies, gifts and balloons as desired. I used Tombow Dual Brush Markers although they do require extra time to dry as they are water-based. Use alcohol-based markers instead of water-based markers if you prefer.

6. Die cut balloons from Light Green and Light Blue Velvet Adhesive plus die cut some balloons from Blue Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz (metal adaptor plate needed in the cutting "sandwich"  for cutting Shimmer Sheetz - cutting side of die facing the plate with Shimmer Sheetz in between). Mix and match as shown. Adhere to card front using double sided adhesive and pop dots.
7. Die cut Happy Birthday using Happy Birthday Stand Up Helper from Black Velvet Adhesive Sheet. Cut along the score line below the words, keeping the narrow bar below the letters.

Elizabeth Craft Designs September Challenge - Fall, Harvest, Halloween



















It's that time again my crafty friends, Elizabeth Craft Designs Monthly Challenge. This month's challenge is to make a card or project using Fall, Harvest, Halloween as a theme. So I love Halloween so I decided to do a Frightful, Boo, Halloween card. Karen Burniston did this really cool technique using Lorna Label Die so I decided to copy it.

Instructions:

1. Create card base from black cardstock. Cut 5″x 11″ rectangle; score and fold in half.
In this card I’m using a double fold with an extra platform using the Lorna Label PopUp.
Place the Lorna Label on the fold line as shown by Karen Burniston in this video. Cut another rectangle 5 1/4″x 12″ for the backing card.


2. To create a “back wall” and a “floor wall”, cut Trick or Treat and Spider paper 6″x 6″ square. Place Lorna Label PopUp on the edge of paper and die cut PopUp insert. You will need your scissors to cut out the Lorna Label insert completely. Do this on both papers. Adhere Trick or Treat paper to the top of the inside of the card and Spider paper to the bottom part of the inside of the card. Karen explains this step in her video as well. Cut Trick or Treat paper 2 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to the bottom of the inside of the card. Cut out the sticker and popped it up using pop dots and placed on top as shown. Cut out Moon from Graphic 45 paper line.

3. Cut out 4 trees using black paper and the die from All Seasons Tree die collection. Take a white colour pencil to add markings as shown. Cut out grass using Green Velvet Adhesive sheet using Outdoor Edges die. Adhere grass as shown.
4. Cut out spider webbing using Spiral Circle from the Spiral Circle Pull card using white Crepe paper. I just weaved in and out thru the trees I stamped Ghosts and Bats using White and Black pigment ink and embossed with clear powder. Adhere using glue dots. I added a couple of extras around the spider as shown. I added a couple of 3D spiders.
5. Place black Halloween in Frame Peel-offs and an extra Candy Corn onto white cardstock with double sided adhesive on top. Cover Peel-offs with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and polish glitter with your finger. Use a brush to brush of the excess glitter. Follow Els’ step by step instructions for this technique here.

 6. Color Spider and Candy Corn as desired. I used Tombow Dual Brush Markers although they do require extra time to dry as they are water-based. Use alcohol-based markers instead of water-based markers if you prefer. Place the extra Candy Corn on top of the Spider holding the candy using pop up dots. I also added some boogie eyes to the spider.
7. For the front of the card, cut pumpkin paper 5 1/2″x 5 3/4″ and black spider paper 5 1/4″x 5 1/2″. Layer and adhere using double sided adhesive. Adhere black spider lace ribbon before placing paper down on black base. Cut out tag using the newest die from ECD called Tags & More 1 Lace.using orange paper.

Puppy Love


DSC_0251-1
Hi, Jackie Smith here. I fell in love with the new Elizabeth Craft Designs Peel-offs, especially the one called 'Puppies'. My dog has been sick so I decided to do a card for her - she is like my kid.  I had these papers on hand that coordinate well with the Peel-offs.
Instructions
1. Create card base from brown cardstock. Cut 5"x 11" rectangle; score and fold in half.
In this card I'm using a double fold with an extra platform using the Lorna Label PopUp.
Place the Lorna Label on the fold line as shown by Karen Burniston in this video. Cut another rectangle 5 1/4"x 12" for the backing card.
IMG_1312-1
2. To create a "back wall" and a "floor wall", cut bone paper 6"x 6" square twice. Place Lorna Label PopUp on the edge of paper and die cut PopUp insert. You will need your scissors to cut out the Lorna Label insert completely. Do this on both papers. Adhere one wall to the top of the inside of the card and one wall to the bottom part of the inside of the card. Karen explains this step in her video as well.
3. Cut dog word vellum paper 2 1/4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to the top, just behind the PopUp. Cut burlap paper the same size and adhere to the bottom of the inside of the card.
4. Cut out trees, foliage and house using the Holiday House and All Seasons Tree dies. Emboss the roof part with Damask Embossing folder by Karen Burniston. Place all pieces using glue dots as shown.DSC_0248-1
5. Place black Puppies Peel-offs onto white cardstock with double sided adhesive on top. Cover Peel-offs with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and polish glitter with your finger. Use a brush to brush of the excess glitter. Follow Els' step by step instructions for this technique here.
6. Color puppies as desired. I used Tombow Dual Brush Markers although they do require extra time to dry as they are water-based. Use alcohol-based markers instead of water-based markers if you prefer.
7. Cut out puppies. Place sitting puppy by the dog house on the inside. Adhere laying puppy to the front of the card as shown (step 9).

8. Hand cut bone from the brown bone paper using scissors. Add name and adhere to the front of the house. Attach In the dog house sign and dog bowl using stickers. Adhere dog paws as shown using pop dots.
9. For the front of the card, cut bone paper 5 1/2"x 5 3/4", red paper 5 1/4"x 5 1/2" and word paper 5"x 5 1/4". Layer and adhere using double sided adhesive. Adhere puppy, bone, dog paws and sign using pop dots as shown.

Asian Cards meet Tombow XTREME Permanent Adhesive




















A couple of months ago I was contacted by Tombow to be a part of Tombow Sticky University and try out their new XTREME Permanent Adhesive by Tombow which is five times stickier than their regular adhesive.! I already used their Tombow markers as well as Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue so I was up for the challenge to see if would hold up.

For the first card I used the XTREME Permanent Adhesive  to hold the all the elements on the card, even the ribbon is held by the Xtreme Permanent adhesive. This ribbon is quite heavy and is holding really well.

For the second card I created this fancy fold card using Xtreme Permanent adhesive to hold all the elements on this card together. Again I used it on the satin red ribbon to see if it would hold, and tried it on the Chipboard pieces as well. Of course it holds it in place, so I'm really impressed with this tape runner to hold heavy elements.















Here is a picture of the inside card.
