Elizabeth Craft Designs November Designers’ Challenge – White, Silver, Gold

November 30, 2015

This month’s Designers’ Challenge is all about the colors white, silver and gold. We challenged our designers to create a project using these colors. They could use all three colors or a combination of two.

The first project is this beautiful photo frame create by Angela Beavers. She used Shimmer Sheetz and the Trendy Tiles 1 embossing folder to decorate the frame. She distressed the frame to create an antique look. Visit Angela’s blog for more info.

In our next project, Marsha Valk shows us how easy it is to turn simple glass bottles in beautiful candle holders. She first painted the bottles and then decorated them with die cut shapes from the Jewelry Die 1 – Sea Glass die set and  Silk Microfine Glitter. Great to decorate your home or a dinner table during the holidays. Find more info on Marsha’s blog HERE.


Jackeline Hernandez created a beautiful box using the Tags and More 9 Sparkle and a combination of dies and Silk Microfine Glitter to decorate the box. Love how she used the Ribbons & Jewels die set to create the tree. This box can be used to wrap chocolates, cookies or presents. For instructions, visit Jackeline’s blog HERE.


Frances Byrne created this stunning card using the Poinsettia die, Tags & More 9 Sparkle, and the Sprig with Berries. She used Silk Microfine Glitter for the poinsettias and the sprigs and to color the inside of the card. Love the layout and the sparkles. Find out more on Frances’s blog HERE.


Els van de Burgt joined this month’s challenge with this beautiful elegant card using Silk Microfine Glitter and lace. You can find out more about this technique in her YouTube video HERE. For the sentiment she used the Happy Birthday die and Gold Metallic Shimmer Sheetz. She created an easel to display the card using the Card Stand/Easel die.
