Sizzix/Eileen Hull: Journaling Cards, Flower and Leaves Journaling Card Diecut
Hi everyone! Today I two projects in one blog post I would like to share. I created an ink pen clip holder and decorated mini notebooks for the Woodsy Autumn Planner. You can find the Woodsy Autumn blog post HERE in case you missed that.
For the first project I’ll start with directions for the ink pen holder.
I cut three medium, three small flowers and two leaves from Crinoline fabric with the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts, inked a glass tray with Sunshine and Golden Blend Inks and add water to ink. I laid each flower into the ink mixture, removed and let dry. I cleaned the glass tray off and ink with Leaf and Frog Blends Inks, add water to ink, laid both leaves into mixture, removed and let dry.
I inked Art Daubers with Butter and Candied Yam Ink and lightly ink the edges of each flower. I added a drop of Zip Dry Adhesive to the center of each flower. Laid each flower on top of each other, pinch in the center, shaped and added a gem to the center of the flower. I folded each leaf down the center and edge with Candied Yam ink, adhered each leaf to the back of the flower with a loop of hemp cording.
I cut a 1 7/8 inch piece of stretch elastic and adhere each end with Fabri-Tac adhesive to each side of a binder clip. But sure to tuck the elastic up under the “rolled” metal of each side of the clip.
I adhered the flower to elastic loop and let dry.
I inked a glass tray with Melon and Golden Blend Inks, add water and lay the mini flower diecuts into the mixture, remove and let dry. Ink edges of the mini flowers with Butter ink.
I cleaned the glass tray and ink with Leaf Blends Ink, add water and lay the leaf sprig into ink mixture. Remove and let dry. Ink edges of the leaf sprig with Mint ink.
I adhered a monogram to one of the notebooks and add a mini flower and cut one leaf from the leaf sprig and adhere both on top of the monogram. Glue a sequin and a gem to the center of the flower.
The other wreath notebook apply a drop of glue to the center of the medium flower and pinch and shape. Add a sequin and a gem to the center of the flower along with a leaf from the sprig and loop some hemp cording and glue both the front of the notebook. Also add a mini flower with a gem in the center of the flower next to the medium flower.
The other two notebooks I stamped the words “ideas” and “notes” with the Leather Ink onto patterned cardstock, cut out and adhere one word to each cover.
Next I slid each of the notebooks underneath the elastic cording of the planner.
I clipped the ink pen holder to one of the notebooks and added an ink pen.
As always if you have any questions about these projects please let me.
Hi everyone! I want to share a project I created using some of the new stamp sets that ClearSnap has come out with this month!
First I cut one 2″x10″ patterned cardstock and 2 1/2″x10″ orange cardstock and wrapped the 2 1/2″x10″ around pack of Kleenex and adhere at the end of the cardstock to create a belly band. I completed the same step for the 2″x10″ patterned cardstock.
I cut one Beaded Circle Diecut from the Yellow and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock and adhere to the center of the belly band.
I stamped the “You Need a Good Cry” sentiment with Wicked Black Ink onto a piece of cream cardstock and cut the end of cardstock to create a banner. I inked the edges of the banner with Marigold Ink and adhere to the belly band.
I adhered sequins and gems around the Beaded Circle Diecut and punched two seals from patterned cardstock and adhere to the corner of the “You Need a Good Cry” sentiment.
Next I punched a heart from patterned cardstock and glued on top of the seals.I punched a mini flower, leaf sprig from patterned cardstock and cut one leaf off of the sprig and adhere to the back of the flower before gluing to the heart. I finished off by adding a gem to the center of the flower. There you have it! If you have a friend that is down and having a rough time this is a perfect pick me up that hopefully after they have a good cry will bring a smile to their face. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Hi everyone! I wanted to share a quick card I created with y’all today. I had a box of 3 1/2″x5″ blank cards and envelopes that I had picked up at the Target Dollar Spot. The cards are a solid color and I thought they would be perfect to decorate.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is wonderfully awesome and enjoy creating!
I cut out from the following scraps of cardstocks I had laying on my desk: Architextures Old Window and Architextures Stenciled Crates cardstocks, roughed up the edges of the cardstock, added a piece of a doily and inked all before adhering to the canvas base.
I fussy cut the woman from the 7Gypsies Seamstress Pattern Cardstock and since there was and arm going a cross the body and the woman’s legs hung off the canvas I decided to cover it with a saying and banners. Also from my own stash I fussy cut butterfly wings from a printable and added to the back of the woman. I didn’t glue the wings down so I could curl to give them a little definition and I added Stickles to the wings. Also I added three little gems to the hat for a little bling.
From the 7Gyspies cardstock scraps I had laying around I distressed the edges of cardstock, inked and adhered around the edges of the canvas.
The front of the canvas still looked a little bare so I punched out flowers and leaves from my Canvas Corp cardstock, shaped and added gems and flat back pearls to the flowers.
