Welcome to our Monthly Designers challenge! This month’s theme is all about flowers. We asked our designer to create some beautiful projects using our new Paper Flowers dies or any of our other “Floral” themed stamps. Our designers did a great job and I can’t wait to show to their beautiful work!
First project is from Annette Green who created this beautiful little box using the new Pizza Box die and the Florals 4. Love the beautiful Fall colors she picked for the flowers and leaves. For the box itself Annette used the Worn Wood paper pack. Make sure to check out Annette’s blog HERE for more info.
EK Gorman created this beautiful flower card using a collection of flowers stamps. She used the “A Field of Flowers” set and the “Patterns 1”. Love the brown and yellow color combination. For more info on how to create this card, check out EK’s Blog HERE.
Joyce Schmidt created a beautiful frame using the Florals 1 die set in combination with the Elegant Ornament die. Love these 2 together. She also used the Berry Branch and cut this one up in small pieces to decorate the flower arrangement. Joyce often shows her work in videos and on her Facebook page. Make sure to check it out HERE.
Anita Izendoor, the designer of the Paper Flower Collection joined us this month with a beautiful floral slimline card. Just like Joyce, she decided to combine the Elegant Ornament die with the Florals 1 set. Such a beautiful combination. For the background she used the Worn Wood paper pack. To see more of Anita’s beautiful work, make sure to check out her Blog HERE.
We’re so happy to have some Strawberries dies back in our collection, this time just a little bit smaller than our previous release set. Tina Guigui created this lovely slimline card. She colored the strawberries so pretty they almost look real. The “let love bloom” (Zen Sentiments set) is a perfect choice for this card. If you would like to re-create this card, make sure to check out Tina’s Blog HERE.
Next card is from Sandy Diller who used the Color my Flowers clear stamp set in combination with the new Floral Birst Background die by Joset Designs. I love how she used the background die here as the front of the card. For the sentiment she used the Build Your Own Sentiments 1. For more info on how to create this beautiful card, make sure to check out Sandy’s blog HERE.
Joseph Nguyen joined us this month with this beautiful flower arrangement using a combination of dies. Joseph used the Florals 4 and colored the petals centers very lightly in blue. He followed this color scheme with a beautiful patterned background and some small blue embellishments on the berries (Berry Branch). Some extra leaves completed his card. For more inspiration, make sure to follow Joseph’s Facebook page HERE.
Katelyn Grosart created this stunning wreath using the Florals 2 and Stamen Flowers die sets. She used White Soft Finish Cardstock to cut her flowers and leaves and colored them using Distress Inks. Love the pastel colors she picked. For more info on how to create the flowers, check out Katelyn’s Blog HERE.
Last project is this cute card created by Karen Ostergard showing you how fun it is to use the flower dies as embellishments. She created a Hoppy Birthday card using the oh so cute Frog die set. For more info on how to create this card, check out Karen’s Blog post HERE.
Hello everyone, this is Joyce Schmidt, design team member with Elizabeth Craft Designs. I am bringing you Autumn wishes today so that you may begin to brush off the hot summer and start looking forward to the Pumpkin Spice Latte, and holidays to come. Join me today to make this fun card for Autumn using the new Fantasy Floral line coming very soon!
I decided to do a slimline card today. The size of the card measures 81/2 X 31/2 inches. I used the Elizabeth Craft Design soft finish cardstock 110lb to create the card base because I am using it as the base layer for my stencil. I used the rocks stencil (S038) and just used a little distress ink ad a blending brush, it was perfect for this card.
I used the soft finish card stock to die cut Elegant Ornament die (1780). Using the ink to paper transfer technique, I colored the paper brown. I then roughly applied gold embossing powder to certain areas, and heat embossed the powder. It gives it an antique finish as if it was metal.
I die cut leaves from all 3 of the floral sets 1,2,3 and just inked them with browns, oranges, and a dash of green to give it a fall look.
Next, I used my Elizabeth Craft Designs tweezers to add a little shape to the leaves so they would easily take on a realistic look.
To wrap it all up I die cut the Word “Autumn” from the 4 Seasons Set (1199) and used gold foil paper with Double sided adhesive on the back and it finished the inspiration perfectly!
I hope you will try this easy fun autumn card using the leaves from the Fantasy Floral set from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I was fun and easy to make as well as inspiring for the Fall Season. Thank you for joining me today and Happy Crafting!

The theme for today’s post is all about the things we’ve missed during the summer months. We asked our designers to create miss you cards or cards that they would like to send to their loved ones. Or perhaps a beautiful scrapbook or planner page with their special summer memories.
First project is created by Tanja Kabel who made this colorful miss you card using the Bubbles die set in combination with the Morning Letters stamp set. She used White Soft Finish Cardstock for the Stitched Rectangle background and die cuts and colored the inside of the bubbles with Watercolors. What a beautiful look!

Next card is created by Katelyn Grosart who used the beautiful Floral Insert die set from the Traveler’s Notebook collection in combination with the Bloom stencil from the Art Journal collection. Love the dimension of the flowers. She also used the Stitched Indented Rectangles and the Watercolor Palette. For more details, visit Katelyn’s blog HERE.
In the same color scheme as Katelyn’s card is this next card created by Karen Ostercard. Love the artsy look of this card. Karen used the Earthy Girls stamp set in combination with the Beaded Circle Frames die set. For the background she used the Patterns 1 Stamps and the quote is from the Pieces of Life 3 – Quotes.

For Joseph Nguyen the question of what do you miss is “love” the world everywhere is hurting and love is needed again. A beautiful card with lots of sparkle and cuteness. Who doesn’t want to receive this very thoughtful card? I think we all do and love is needed everywhere. Josepf used the Fox die set in combination with some beautiful Silk Microfine Glitter.
