Flowers in Frame

Hello everyone,

It’s been a while since my last blog post but I have been a little busy lately. On May 17th our beautiful baby Annika was born! Yep, suddenly I am a mom and life is a lot different. Annika is such a sweet baby and gives us a lot of love. We are very proud parents! Between the feeding, diaper changes and all the rest that being a mom involves I managed to create a card today. The weather here in Banff has been so nice lately so I wanted to create a card with lots of flowers and colors for summer. I used the Flowers in Frame Peel-Offs, Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and the Katie Flourish Frame Edges. A simple card but fun to create!

Coloring Peel-Offs

The technique that I used for coloring the Peel-Offs is the technique that I use a lot here on my blog. I colored on top of the Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. I like to use Copic markers but any other alcohol marker with a softer tip will work. If you’re new to this technique, watch this video by Els HERE.

Card base

For the card base I used an aqua colored cardstock that I cut 5.5″ x 8.5″, scored at 4.25″ and folded in half. I then cute 2 sets of the Katie Flourish Frame Edges from green cardstock backed with double-sided adhesive. I started with adhering one long edge and then worked my way around the outside frame of the card front. I cut a small piece of pink cardstock for my sentiment and adhered this to the right top corner using foam adhesive.

It was nice to be back in my craft room and be creative. I hope you find some time to be creative too!

Have a nice day!

I love you Owl

Hello everyone,

It’s my turn to post on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog and for today’s project I decided to use some of the new dies and Peel-Offs from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I used the Bunch of Flowers 3 and Flourishes and Branches, available at the end of this month and the Owl Peel-Offs in black, available the first week of May. Let me show you how I created this cute “I love you” card.

Owl Joset

1. Cut pink cardstock 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Score and fold in half.

2. Die cut one Accordion Oval page from pink pattern paper. Cut out center oval and trim long side tab. Then trim each side of the page slightly. Adhere to card front.

3. Optional: Add Transparent/Silver Glitter Border along the outside.

4. Add Transparent Double-Sided Adhesive to a piece of white cardstock, large enough to fit your Owl Peel-Off plus the little heart.

5. Transfer peel-offs to the adhesive following the steps shown in this video by Els. Once you have applied Silk Microfine Glitter, color peel-offs using alcohol markers.

6. Fussy cut peel-offs using Fine Pointed Scissors.

7. Die cut 4 flowers and centers using Bunch of Flowers 3 from Pink and Light Pink Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz. Make sure to use your Metal Adaptor Plate for cutting Shimmer Sheetz. Tip: for the flower centers, apply Shimmer Sheetz to Double-Sided Adhesive first before die cutting.

8. Die cut 3 Flourishes using Flourishes and Branches from Green Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz. Tip: apply Shimmer Sheetz to Double-Sided Adhesive first before die cutting.

9. Cut a small piece of white cardstock for sentiment. Apply I Love You Peel-Off.

10. Assemble your card as shown in the picture at the beginning. Adhere flowers, flourishes, Owl and heart Peel-Off. Use foam adhesive for sentiment and heart.

I hope you will enjoy creating your own “I love you” owl card. For more inspiration using the Owl Peel-Offs, check out my second card below. It’s similar but a little bit different. For this card I used the Accordion Rectangle to create the frame and the new Leafy Branch to die cut the branch for the owls. The “Thank You” is cut from Black Velvet Adhesive and I added some black Assorted Border Peel-Offs on the outside of the rectangle frame to finish my card.

I will be posting more samples using the fun new dies and Peel-Offs from Elizabeth Craft Designs so stay tuned!
