Peace & Joy

IMG_1478-1Hello Everyone. Jackie here with today's post. I'm back with another Christmas card using my favourite colors - white and gold. I love the new Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Tape Rolls and Sheets from Elizabeth Craft Designs. In addition to being transparent (and just perfect for Silk Microfine Glitter techniques), it's also nice and thin with a thin release sheet that makes it ideal for die cutting with ECD's intricate dies. I used it on striped vellum and it didn't show through!
Instructions:
1. Create card base from white cardstock. Cut 10"x 17" rectangle; score and fold in half
(5"x 7" finished card size).
2. Cut cream paper 4"x 4 3/4". Emboss with Pinecones embossing folder then Sponge with Gold ink. Adhere with ECD Transparent Double Sided Adhesive onto bottom of base card.IMG_1463-1
3. Cut gold paper 4"x 4 3/4". Emboss with Sprigs embossing folder. Sponge with gold ink. Adhere with ECD Transparent Double Sided Adhesive at the top of card base. Make sure it slightly overlaps with the white paper from step 2. IMG_1465-1
IMG_1464-1
4. Add Transparent/Silver Glitter Border Peel-Off where the 2 papers meet.
5. Cut striped vellum 3 3/4" x 6 3/4". Adhere with ECD Transparent Double Sided Adhesive as shown.
6. Apply Transparent Double Sided Adhesive to white cardstock. Die cut "Sprig" twice,
"Round Ornament", "Joy" and "Peace". Cover Sprigs with a mixture of  3 Silk Microfine Glitters. Sprinkle Solar Gold Glitter over Ornament. Sprinkle Antique Gold over Joy and Peace. Burnish glitter with finger. Tip: Keep any glitter that has an accidental mixture of colors in a spare jar to use for other projects. Label the jar "Debris" or "Mystery Combo" and add to it whenever you've got colors that can't go back into the original jars.

I Sea it's your Birthday!

IMG_1400-1
Hi, Jackie Smith here. When I saw the new Seashells and Lighthouse Peel-Offs, I immediately thought of doing a shaker card. It's really easy using the Ring Accordion die by Karen Burniston.

Instructions:
1. Create card base using blue cardstock. Cut 6"x 11" rectangle; score and fold in half (left-fold card is 5.5"x 6")
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.
IMG_1378-1
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.

7. Stamp sentiment onto white cardstock using Pool Pigment Ink. Cut around the sentiment with a circle die. Die cut a blue cardstock scallop edge circle. Adhere scallop edge circle to card. Top it with the sentiment using pop dots for dimension.

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.
DSC_0289-1
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.
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.

DSC_0280-1
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.
