Hi everyone, as we all gear up for Easter, I thought I would show you a fun project that you could create using a combination of your core card stock and patterned papers. This Easter wreath project was a lot of fun to create and it actually made me feel happy that we hopefully will welcome spring very soon!
Easter Egg Wreath Supplies:
- Core Essentials Darks Collection
- Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection
- Core Basics White 80lb. Cardstock Smooth
- Coredinations Light Green Crosshatch Paper (GX-2300-24)
- Coredinations Large Pink Pokadot Paper (GX-2300-50)
- Coredinations Dark Pink Small dot Paper (GX-2300-55)
- Coredinations Teal Stripe Paper (GX-2300-63)
- Coredinations Teal Plad Paper (GX-2300-64)
- Sand It Gadget & Dust Buddy
- Liquid Adhesive
- Pearls & Ribbon From My Stash
- 3d Paper Egg Wreath Silhouette # 57296
- Silhouette Cameo
To make this project follow these steps.
Step 1. Start by leaves out of the Green from the Core Essentials Darks Collection.
Step 2. Cut the base piece out of a piece from the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection and another 2 out of chip board for extra strength.
Step 3. Glue the 3 rings together, sandwiching a piece of ribbon between the 2 pieces of chip board.
Step 4. Sand all your leaves for a nice look. Do not forget to use your dust buddy for clean-up.
Step 5. Using the edge of your table, curve the egg pieces as well as the designer paper. Once completed, attach the designer paper before the egg is assembled. By curving the pieces first they will take a nicer shape.
Step 6. Curl the pedals prior to attaching them to the base.
Step 7. Layer the leaves on 1 at a time. There will be enough for 2 layers.
Step 8. Finally, attach the eggs and flowers where desired and hang in a place for everyone to enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by for a peek… Have a wonderful day my crafty friends!
Have you ever come across some vintage cards from days gone by? Well I wanted to create a card today with a vintage feel. Core’dinations Tim Holtz Shattered Kraft-Core is the perfect cardstock collection to achieve this look. The Shattered look to the cardstock takes you back to days gone by.
Photographing the card with some vintage crochet doilies really does make this card vintage looking.
Here I have started out by using the Tombow mono glue on the back of the die cut tree allowing the glue to dry semi-transparent. This re-positionable option is my favorite.
Next step, is sanding and inking the Shattered Cardstock which created the weathered vintage feel that I was trying to achieve for my card.
The next step was to ink and tear the Shattered cardstock. The ink embeds into the cracked pattern of the cardstock giving the cardstock a weathered feel.
Gently, press the sponge pad to hook the two sides of the tabs together to help organize your supplies.
Whenever you want to use your ink, your sponge is on the back of your stamp pad making it easy to attach to your blending tool. Think of how convenient this will be whenever you need to ink a project.
