Craft Online - Happy Father's Day (Video)

Hi friends, today I'm back with a Father's Day for Craft Online. I used the Poppy Crafts Garden Tool Set Dies to create a fun embossed background. 


I started off with a white piece of cardstock and adhered two grey stripes over the top. I then laid out my dies over the panel and ran it through my die cutting machine on some rubber mats so they emboss and don't cut. 


I then die cut the 'Happy Father's Day' Die from black and dark grey cardstock, adhered them together creating a drop shadow and adhered them onto my card using foam tape. 


I finished off by adding the apostrophe and dot of the exclamation point and that finished off my card for today. 


Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed my 10 minute simple Father's Day Card. See you next time!

For today's card I used the new 'Boo!' Stamp Set along with the older 'Halloween Pals' Stamp Set. I also used the new 'Spooky Fence' Die, too.


I started off with stamping out all my images from 'Boo!' and 'Halloween Pals' and coloured them in with Copic Markers. I then cut them out. While I was die cutting, I also cut out the 'Spooky Fence' Die from black cardstock and a hill using the 'Stitched Borders 1' Dies from watercolour cardstock. 

(Copic Markers Used: YR00, YR02, YR12, YR18 / Y11, Y13, Y15, Y19 / E50, E51, E53, E55 / R000, R30, R20 / W00, W0, W1 / 0 / E41, E42, E43, E44 / W2, W3, W5, W7 / BV01, BV02, BV04, BV08 / YG61, YG63, YG67, G28 / R14, R24, R27, R89)


Now everything was was die cut out, I took the hill piece and another piece of watercolour cardstock and ink blended some Distress Oxide Inks onto each piece. I then flicked on some water and dried them with a heat tool. 

(Distress Oxide Inks Used: Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean, Broken China / Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint)

I then die cut the word 'Boo' from the top centre of the blue ink blended panel using the 'Boo!' Dies. I made sure to keep the centre pieces for later. 


Now it was time to adhere everything together. I added foam tape onto the back of the blue ink blended panel and adhered it onto a grey card base. I adhered the insides of the letters as well. I then adhered the 'Spooky Fence' with liquid glue and then the green hill onto the bottom and all my critters on top. I white heat embossed the 'Happy Halloween' sentiment from 'Boo!' onto a strip of black cardstock, and adhered it over the die cut Boo word. I added white details using a gel pen and that finished off my card for today. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Yana Smakula is the last stop on the hop today so make sure you head over to see her wonderful creation. 

See you next time!

Craft Online - Hello and Thanks (Video)


Hello friends, Eloise here for Craft Online and today I have two cards to share with you all using some word dies from Kaisercraft. I also created some paint strokes using some of their acrylic paint, too for some simple thanks and hello cards.


I started off with die cutting the two words, Thanks and Hello from watercolour cardstock and adhered them down lightly to a sheet. I then swiped up the colours of paint I was going use onto each letter, leaving the top of them white. I did this to both words and set them aside to dry. 

(Kaisercraft Paints Used: Lime, Olive, Spearmint, Sea Breeze and Tropical Water / Yellow, Mango, Orange, Dusty Pink, Candy and Magenta)


Once they were dry I added foam tape onto the backs of the letters. I then cut down two white card bases and ran them through a die cutting machine with the Fern Leaf Embossing Folder. Then adhered the letters into place. 


I wanted to extend the sentiment so I used the Reveal Wheel Sentiment Set from Lawn Fawn, white heat embossed the 'Just Wanted To Say' sentiments onto thin black strips and adhered them over the painted sentiments. 


That finished up these two quick and easy cards for today, I hope you enjoyed and I'll see you next time. craft

Hello Bluebird - Field Mice (Video)

Hello friends, today I have a card for Hello Bluebird Stamps using the new Field Mice Stamp Set.  


I started off with stamping and colouring my images out using Copic Markers. I then cut them out and started work on my background.

(Copic Markers Used: E30, E31, E33, E34 / W00, W0, W1, W2 / BG10, BG11, BG23, BG13 / R12, R14, R24, R27 / YR30, Y23, YR21, YR23 / N2 / R00, R30 / B000 / YG00, YG01, YG23, YG17)


For my background I used a stencil from MFT to create the green hills using Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink. I then flipped the stencil and used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to ink blend a little blue on there too. I cut down the panel to around 3 1/4" wide and added foam tape on the back. I then cut down a piece of blue striped patterned paper and adhered my ink blended background on top. 


I then added adhesive to all my mice and accents and adhered them down into place. For my sentiment I white heat embossed the 'Well, Hello There' onto a black strip of cardstock and adhered it into place. 


Thanks so much for stopping by today and I'll be back tomorrow wiht another card and video.

I then die cut out the Winter Trails Die from white cardstock and adhered my critters inside the stars. I cut off the excess from the critters that overlapped the other stars, as well. 


Lastly, I took a piece of dark blue/grey striped patterned paper and adhered my scene together using foam tape. I then white heat embossed the 'Merry Christmas' sentiment onto a strip of green cardstock and adhered it into place. 


That finished up my card for today, I hope you enjoyed and I'll see you next time!

For today's card I used the Tropical Toucans Stamp Set and paired it with a few dies; Storybook 1, Tropical Frame and Stitched Notes Die Sets. 


I started off with stamping out all the images from the Tropical Toucan Stamp Set and coloured them in with Copic Markers. I then cut them all out. 

(Copic Markers Used: YR00, YR02, YR12, YR18 / Y11, Y13, Y15, YR15 / R14, R24, R27, R89 / YG01, YG23, YG17, YG67 / BG11, BG13, BG45, BG49 / RV21, RV23, RV25, RV29 / BV01, BV02, BV04, BV08 / W00, W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9 / 0 / E51, E53, E55, E57)


Next I took a piece of green cardstock and cut it out with the frame from Stitched Notes. I then used some Mowed Lawn Distress Ink and ink blended at the top and bottom of the green panel just a little. I then used the Storybook 1 Dies and cut it from the centre. I then die cut the Tropical Frame from some vellum and adhered it behind the green frame for a little added interest. I then took some pink cardstock, cut out the centre and adhered it to a white card base. Lastly, I added foam tape onto the back of the frame and adhered it down on the card base as well. 


I then took all my images and adhered them down into place over the frame. I used a little foam tape and liquid adhesive to get some dimension. 


To finish up, I stamped the 'You Can Do It' sentiment on the bottom section of my card and scattered some Luau Jewels around as well.

Craft Online - Happy Birthday (Video)


Hello friends, today I'm back for Craft Online to create a Birthday Card. I'll be using some dies from Poppy Crafts along with glitter paper to create a fun sparkly card. 


I started off with pulling all of the dies I was using out (they're all linked down below) and die cut them from the colours of glitter cardstock I wanted to use. I cut the butterfly from pink, leaves from two shades of green and the background from copper. I also die cut a circle from vellum and the banner from black. Once everything was die cut out I added foam tape to the backs of the leaves and background and adhesive to the back of the butterfly. 


I adhered my background down to a card base and then adhered the leaves and butterfly to my vellum circle. For my sentiment I white heat embossed the 'Birthday' from Happy Happy Happy by Lawn Fawn onto the right hand side. I then stamped the 'Happy', die cut it out and adhered it to the left hand side of my banner. I added foam tape onto the back and adhered it into place. 


Lastly I took my vellum circle, added more adhesive onto the back and adhered it into place. I then decided my images needed more dimension so I took some Copic Markers and coloured in the centres a little to make them have more depth to them. 

(Copic Markers Used: R81, R83, R85 / G24, G28, G29 / YG61, YG63, YG67)

Thanks so much for stopping by today, the video is linked down below if you would like to watch.

Hello Bluebird - For A Fairy Good Friend


Hello friends, today I have a card for Hello Bluebird using the Fairy Garden Stamp Set. I paired this set with the Gallery Frame 3 Dies and an alcohol inked background. 


I started off with stamping my images on white cardstock and colouring them in with Copic Markers. I stuck with a pink, purple and aqua colour scheme. Once they were coloured, I cut them out. 

(Copic Markers Used: RV21, RV23, RV25, RV29 / B63, BV02, BV04, BV08 / RV91, RV93, RV95, RV99 / E41, E42, E43, E44 / W00, W0, W1, W3, W5 / Y13 / R30 / B0000, B000, B01, 0 / YG01, YG23, YG07, YG17 / YG61, YG63, YG67, G28 / Y21, YR21, YR23, YR24 / BG10, BG11, BG13, BG49, E000, E00, E21, E02)


I also cut the Gallery Frame 3 Dies from silver glitter cardstock and cut a couple of the strips out to change the design. I added foam tape onto the back of the frame and all of my images and set them off to the side. 

For my alcohol ink background, I used four colours along with alcohol solution on some yupo paper. I first added on alcohol solution and then dripped on the four colours, used my Distress Sprayer Tool to help move the colours around and then dried it off with a heat tool. 

(Alcohol Ink Colours Used: Tim Holtz - Limeade, Pool, Amethyst, Turquoise)


Lastly I adhered my frame at an angle and adhered my images inside. For the sentiment I white heat embossed the 'For A Fairy Good Friend' onto a black strip of cardstock. I then adhered that onto my card and tied a hemp cord bow onto the side. 

That finished up my card for today, thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you got inspired and I'll see you next time.
