2. Cut light cream patterned paper 5 1/4"x 5 3/4". Cut blue swirl patterned paper 5"x 5 1/2" and adhere to cream paper using Double-sided Adhesive. Cut cream seashell patterned paper 4 3/4"x 5 1/4" again adhere to blue swirl paper.  Cut out circle using Ring Accordion die using blue dot paper and a piece of acetate.
IMG_1381-1
3. Black Place black Seashell Peel-offs and black Lighthouses 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 HEREIMG_1386-1
IMG_1394-1

To assemble the shaker card
4. Trim off the long side tab and cut out the center circle. Trim the acetate to fit inside the circle frame and adhere using Double-sided Adhesive. Cut waves out using Outdoor Edges using blue paper as shown. This will be adhered to the top part of the circle in the shaker card. To make the sand, mix a drop of Distress Re-inker in Frayed Burlap with some Silk Microfine Glitter in Warm Diamond. Set aside any extra for another beach theme project. Apply Double-sided Adhesive to bottom of circle, then pat down the sand. Let it dry. Add the glittered fish peel-off to the circle just above the sand as shown.

5. Apply foam tape around the Ring Accordion edge and apply over the circle, leaving a little hole at the top to add blue beads. Add netting before apply to the card base.
6. Add Seashell, rope, crab, seagull and lighthouse as shown. Add Transparent/Gold Glitter Dots for bubbles.

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.

Follow Els’ step by step instructions for this technique HERE.
IMG_1310-1
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.

You will need your scissors to cut out the Lorna Label insert completely. Do this on both papers.

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.

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).
DSC_0239-1
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.

3. Place Black Asian Vases Peel-offs onto Shimmer Sheetz (from step 2) and cut it around leaving a halo using scissors. Add the black negative parts to the flowers as shown.
4.  Cut one label from Blue Irish Shimmer Sheetz using the larger accessory from the Katie Label Accordion. (Remember to use the Metal Adaptor Plate when die cutting Shimmer Sheetz). Emboss label using swirly curves, then apply black StazOn ink on the embossed areas.
