One Thing Leads to Another – Part 2

September 1, 2014

Judi Kauffman is back with Part 2 of “One thing leads to another”!

Thanks for inviting me to be part of the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog again today, Joset.

Part 1 of One Thing Leads to Another was posted on August 30. As promised, here are instructions and a supply list for all projects shown in both Part 1 and Part 2.

The Basics:

Pick your favorite Elizabeth Craft Designs outline peel-offs, put them on white cardstock, and color inside the lines. Cut out the shapes staying as close as possible to the outline.

More Options:

*Color around the shapes on the outside of the peel-offs for a halo effect, enlarging the shapes and making them easier to cut out.
*Cut a rectangle and leave a white background.
*Add doodling with fine and medium nib pens (see supply list).






Using the photos for ideas, layer the peel-offs onto embossed and sanded Shimmer Sheetz, patterned papers, solid color cardstock, or a combination of these. (All cards are simple side-fold format.)




*Add a greeting (die cut Adhesive Velvet Sheets or peel-offs).
*Add border peel-offs, ribbon, or other linear elements.
*Add photo corners, brads, charms, or other low-relief components.
*Use foam squares or tape for added dimension.

      Thanks, Frances. I really like working By the Batch method. I like the fact that so many of the peel-off sheets have enough elements to make several cards.

      My biggest wish as a designer and teacher is to make projects that entice someone else to make his or her own version of those projects, so your comment means a lot to me. Glad you’re going to get busy with all your supplies!

    Out standing love them all.

      Thanks, Mary. I felt the same way seeing the Design Team Asian Theme Challenge projects yesterday – so many beautiful cards and ideas!

    Wonderful cards! I especially like how you used the backing from the Glitter Dots sheets – even more bang for your crafting supplies.

    • Judi Kauffman September 1, 2014 at 2:42 pm

      The leftovers from peel-off sheets are endlessly useful, that’s for sure. And I think we’re all looking for the best way to get the most value out of tools and supplies. I remove the background from Glitter Dots sheets at the start (makes it easier to pick up the individual Dots).

    I love the hydrangea card … so pretty!!

    • Judi Kauffman September 1, 2014 at 2:43 pm

      Thanks, Candy. We didn’t have a single hydrangea in the garden this year because of the brutal winter so this card is the closest I’ve gotten to the real thing lately. Fortunately, I had some photos from years past to use for color reference.

    You have done an amazing job. All your cards are fabulous.

    • Judi Kauffman September 1, 2014 at 2:38 pm

      Blue Rose, Joset is the author of the blog and it is her photo that is posted so I guess it can get confusing, but I was the guest designer today and on August 30, so I’ll say thank you for the compliment since the cards are mine (not hers). Thank you!

    I’m not a huge fan of peel offs but I will be rethinking after seeing these lovely cards.

    • Judi Kauffman September 1, 2014 at 2:34 pm

      Thanks, Liz. I’m all for simple and easy cards and these peel-offs make it both simple and easy.
