Happy Birthday Card!

Hi everyone, Crystal here today!

I don’t make to many cards I usually only make them as I need them. I have a couple friends birthdays coming up this month so this card will be perfect.

Epiphany Craft Tool used for my card:

Studio Hexagon 25

and accessory used:

Bubble Caps Hexagon 25

tool

This card came together really fast I gathered a few scraps of paper and used the Studio Hexagon 25 tool to cut out my paper which I add as a border for my card. To add some dimension to my card I used the Bubble Cap Hexagons over lapping my paper in a few spots. I also added pop dots under the Oh Happy banner.

Tool of the Month with Jeri

I just got my hands on the tool of the month,… the SQUARE Epiphany Tool!

I am in love with this shape. You can use it for any theme, any feel, even to add texture and symmetry. I used the square tool to add a banner to the bottom of my Family Layout.

It is really easy to custom make a banner. All you need is the square tool, square epoxy, paper and some stamps and ink.

I simply placed the paper in the square tool, and stamped a letter on the paper. By stamping while it’s in the tool, it is easier to keep centered. Then, add your epoxy shape, cut, and you have your first banner!

I topped my banner off with some jute cording.

Of course, I had to add more Epiphany detail to my layout! Here is a flower with the Round Tool!

Cards for Special Occasions

Kim Klinkovsky for Epiphany Crafts 8-2016
Hi everybody! Kim here up on the Blog today sharing a very special card I made for my daughters medical training graduation that has a personal touch. Whether it’s a wedding, graduation, anniversary, birthday, or a baby shower, you too can add personalization to any card easily with Epiphany Crafts Tools.

I started with a black card base, adhered pattern paper to the top, which by the way is side “B” of a Christmas collection that had snowflakes on side “A”, but you’d never know.  It doesn’t look like Christmas, does it?  Then I heat embossed the sentiment on the bottom for a lovely raised look and adhered two rows of rose ribbon.

Tip: use holiday pattern paper for other occasions too.

Next I created this lovely “S” monogram. Do you remember spiral art from childhood? It’s making a comeback in yarn art.  So, I thought I’d give it a try. For the bottom layer, I die cut a scallop circle from white cardstock and created a spiral effect by wrapping black and white bakers twine around each scallop and adhered a piece of tape on the back to hold it in place. Then I die cut a stitched circle from black cardstock and adhered it to the top of the white yarn art circle.  Stamped an “S” on white cardstock in black ink, placed it in the Epiphany round punch, put an epoxy bubble cap over the “S”, and punched it out. Adhere the new monogramed “S” embellishment to the top of the  black cardstock circle and attached the whole layered piece to the card for a unique personalized monogram.

For the inside of the card I cut a piece of white cardstock, stamped the sentiment in black ink, and adhered to card base. I punched out a coordinating piece of pattern paper with the Epiphany round punch tool and adhered to the card to complete the look. And there you have a unique personalized card with a special touch! I love this punch, the possibilities are endless. I hope I’ve inspired you to create all kinds of monogrammed projects.

Until next time…enjoy your special occasions! ~Kim

kids minecraft project

its summer for just little bit longer and i have a project that can keep your kids busy for at least an hour! we have been busy swimming and playing and sleeping in (sorta, lol) but we also get a lot of afternoon showers. i needed something for them to do that didn’t involve a screen. when i found out the tool of the month was the square tool, it hit me. my kids love playing minecraft so the square tool is perfect to have them play real life minecraft!

we started with a 4×6 piece of cardstock for them to create a minecraft scene on. cardstock in minecrafts colors that i cut into 1 inch strips then i handed the paper strips and my square tool to my kids.

Vacation Countdown with Jeri

Hi guys, Jeri here!

How many of you have a Summer vacation coming up? Even though we look forward to our little reality escape, sometimes life is so busy that vacation time just sneaks up on us!

I decided to create this cute little Vacation Countdown Clipboard to remind myself how many days I have left til my Hawaii vacation this year.

 

CLIPBOARDS 6

The Epiphany Crafts Banner Tool was the perfect detail for my clipboard. I simply wrote HAWAII with a Sharpie on some beautiful metallic gold paper, and created these darling banners!

I added a seashell and some cute ocean themed prints in the corner with a trendy little pineapple print with the Epiphany Crafts Circle Tool.

 

CLIPBOARDS 5

 

I finished this clipboard off with a chalkboard tag in the center where I can change the date, and remind myself how many days I have left til my first vacation to the beautiful island of Hawaii.

Thanks for stopping by!
