Joy tags for Christmas

September 28, 2023

Hi all, Sylvia again here for you on the blog. Time flies, don’t you think? Before you know it, it’s Christmas again and this year I decided to start my Christmas preparations early (also because I have a vacation coming up in November, so less time to prepare). For today I would like to show you how I created some Christmas gift tags, using items from both Joset’s and Annette’s collections, because they combine great! Let’s get started shall we?

step 1: find a piece of coloured cardstock slightly wider than the word Joy. Tape the word die (including the inner circle on the O ) on the bottom edge of your paper and run it through your machine, but NOT all the way!! Make sure the top of the letters are not totally cut and are still attached to the paper. I like to run it through about 75% so that you can just barely see the “v” shape in the centre of the letter Y.

step 2: pick the 3rd largest tag from the nested tags set, slide the bottom part under the letters (so they won’t be cut off) and run it through your machine again. You might wanna handcut a bit in between the letters. Now you have a tag with the word JOY at the bottom edge.

step 3: decorate the tag to your liking with stamps and/or dies. As an example, I made the green tag with Mr. and Mrs. Claus and the blue one with Jack Frost. Finish the tag off with a nice piece of ribbon or twine.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask, I’d be happy to help you out. Have fun preparing for Christmas!

Happy crafting!

a bunch of hocus pocus

September 25, 2023

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here on the blog today. Today, I am using the cute caterpillar die set from the Bugs and Butterflies collection.


Cut and assemble the caterpillar from the Caterpillar die set (for mine, is used some of the Pretty Pastels cardstock). Cut the witch hat, caldron, and spoon from the Halloween Accessories die set. Cut the second largest rectangle from the Indented Stitched Rectangles die from blue cardstock. Cut a slimline card base from black cardstock measuring 7″ x 8 1/2″ and score at 3 1/2″. Cut a card layer panel from green cardstock measuring 3 3/8″ x 8 3/8″. Cut a layer from white soft finish cardstock measuring 3 11/4″ x 8 1/4″. Cut a green grass piece from the Adventure Edges die set. Cut and assemble the “Hocus Pocus” sentiment from the Panner Essentials Halloween Set 3.


Select varying shades of blue ink, a yellow ink, and a black ink of your choice. Starting with the yellow ink, blend the ink to the right side. Using your lightest shade of blue ink, blend that around the yellow ink, leaving the yellow untouched. Take your next darker shade of blue ink and ink the rest of the cardstock. Lastly, go around the edges with black ink.

Using light green Distress Oxide ink, blend over the yellow ink which allows for a nice green glow from our caldron. Using white ink/paint, lightly splatter the white paint onto the card to simulate stars in the night sky.

Adhere your grass piece to the inked card panel. Afterward, adhere the entire panel to your green card layer.

Ahere your caterpillar, caldron, and sentiment to the card panel

Adhere the card panel to your slimline card base and your card is completed.

Hello, Autumn

September 21, 2023

Hello, my crafty friends

Rajni Chawla here from Timeless Creations. Today it’s my turn to inspire you all with Elizabeth Craft Designs’ latest, Seasonal Classics Collection. It is a collection full of awesomeness with lots of flowers, foliage, birdhouse, Christmas fun, and lots more. Again I have 2 cards to inspire you. I have mixed and matched 3 die sets to create these beautiful fall cards.

Here is my first card.

I don’t know why, but I am addicted to using some frame or the other and use it as a backdrop for most of all the floral bouquets that I make for my handmade cards. And I love them for sure. This time I used the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set to create the slimline frame to showcase this beautiful fall wreath on the card front. I simply joined two die cuts by overlapping them and hid that under the wreath which I created using a die cut from the Fitted Circle die Set.

The circle die cut is inked using Wild Honey Distress ink and the sentiment stamped is from Seasonal Sentiments. The foliage used is from Floral Greenery 1 and Floral Foliage 1. I have used archival inks to color all the leaves.

The beautiful Sunflowers are created using Floral 26 and the wreath is made using Floral Foliage 1.

The tiny white filler is from Floral Minis. Make a slit between flower petals, glue, and overlap one petal to make it 5 or 4 petal flowers as per your choice…… that’s simple!!

Here are some more pictures showing the detailing on the flower petals and foliage. It really made the flowers look more lively.

Here is my second card for inspiration….similar supplies were used but quite a different look. I loved this one too.

The background is distressed in ombre and embossed using an embossing folder. I have used the largest of the Stitched Indented Rectangles to create the window. The birdhouse and the bucket are created using Floral Foliage 1.

Good cluck

September 20, 2023

Hii everyone,

I hope you’re all doing fine. Today I’m here to share a new small project with different collections from Elizabeth Craft Design. This week is the release of the new florals collection. I used the basket from one set for the cute ducks.

For the base I used the Stitched Indented Rectangle, kraft cardstock and paper from the Pretty Pastels paperpad. The edges are inked with Distress Ink Frayed Burlap.

I made the basket from the Floral Foliage 1 with Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink. I used some small fasteners from Tim Holtz to make it look real.

At the top I did some inking with blue so it looks like water.

I made the cute ducks and cornfields also from Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink. The smaller ducks are in the basket in the water.

At the top I did some stamping with the life is better on the farm stamp. I realy like the fishtail banners with stitching. They are perfect for the stitched rectangle.

I hope you like this post and got an idea with the basket.

Thankyou for visiting and see you next time!

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here on the blog today. The Bee dies set in the new Bugs and Butterflies collection is so adorable. I could not wait to play with it.

Cut the word “happy birthday” from Everyday Words die set out of patterned cardstock. Cut the “happy birthday” shadow layer from Everyday Words die set out of black cardstock. Cut one strip from black cardstock measuring 1 1/4″ x 5 3/4″. Cut another strip from patterned cardstock measuring 1″ x 5 3/4″.

Using dark purple ink, ink the edges of one set of butterfly wings. For the second set of wings, ink using using blue, medium purple, and dark purple inks in an ombre pattern. For added depth, you can ink the edges with black ink. Using the same blue ink, ink the overlay pieces. The colors I used were Villainous Potion, Wilted Violet, and Salty Ocean Distress Inks.

For added shimmer, spray the overlay pieces with a shimmer spray. For mine, I used Distress Mica Spray Stain.

Adhere the overlay pieces to the ombre pieces. Then use a foam dot on one end of the wing and glue on the end of the other end, adhere the wings together

Using a Sakura Souffle gel pen and white gel pen, add pen details to the butterfly body. I also chose to cut off the legs. Adhere “happy birthday” to the shadow layer.

Adhere the body to the wings. Adhere the antennae to the body. I chose to use a clear Sakura Glaze pen on the antennae and a red Sakura Glaze pen on the mouth.

Adhere the patterned cardstock strip to the black cardstock strip

Adhere the strip piece to the card panel and then trim off any excess

Adhere the butterfly and the “happy birthday” sentiment to the font of the card.

Ladybug Slim Line Card

August 24, 2023

Hi everyone, Katie here with todays blog post. When I received this set from Joset it automatically brought me back to some wonderful memories as a kid, picking daisy’s and collecting ladybugs. So today I wanted to create this super fun playful slim line card featuring Joset;s new collection “Bugs and Butterflies”. So grab a coffee and I will walk you through how I created this card.

Step 1: Cut your ladybugs from coordinating cardstock, the wings are cut from heavy vellum.

The flowers are cut from white and yellow card stock.

Ink all pieces before assembling with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, the cheeks are inked with Flamingo Distress Ink, I used a white gel pen for the dot in the cheeks. As per picture bellows.

Step 2: Choose your favorite slim line die, the one I used was from Photoplay. Next, I cut a piece of background paper and acetate to fit the card front and assemble. I like to use a bit of acetate as it creates a bit of a shimmer behind the card. then cut and fold your slimline card base.

Step 3: Next, attach your flowers and pop dot your ladybugs.

Step 4: Stamp your choice of sentiment from “Bugs and Kisses” and pop-dot to your card.

Step 5: Splatter your card with heavy acrylic paint.

Thank you for joining me with todays blog post, if you have any questions about my card please send me a message on Facebook Katie Porcina. Happy Crafting.

Love this

July 19, 2023

Hi everyone,

I’m here for you today with a new blogpost. Today it is a sweet card with an ice cream. I will lead you step by step through this card.

I started with two tags from the Nested Tags dies. At the top I made a scoreline and adhere that small part together. You can see that line at the top. But you can still open it.

As base I used a piece of designpaper (Bellrose Pink) from 22 X 14 cm. I also cut a piece kraft cardstock from 22,5 x 14,5 cm. I also cut a piece designpaper from 5 x 16 cm and made a scoreline at 0,9 and 15,1 cm.

Now we adhere the 2 parts designpaper together. But you only adhere the small 0,9 cm and the back. So this piece is open to put things behind.

I cut out a piece of the designpaper and adhere this at the background. As you can see I also adhere the designpaper at the kraft.

I made a small cluster to add on the pink strip. All these elements are from the same paperpad.

Now it’s time to decorate the tags I made in the beginning. I cut a tag and numberstrip from the paperpad. I did some stamping at tickets and tabs and made a girl (the witch dies) with an ice cream. I used the donut from the Foodtruck Accessoires as reinforcer.

Adhere this at the front of the tag.

For the inside I cut out again a piece of the paperpad but also did some stamping with the good food good mood stamp. I made an bigger ice cream and ticket.

I also did some stamping and coloured 2 of them with a glitter pen.

Now I can slide one part of the tag under the stripe and one part above. You can unfold a part or you can take it all out.

Well I hope you enjoyed this project. I did when I was making. Thankyou for visiting and see you soon!

Kind regards

Birthday Card in a box with a coordinating Book Boxed Booklet

July 14, 2023

Hello, lovely friends!!

Rajni Chawla here, from Timeless Creations. I am super excited to be joining Elizabeth Craft Designs as a Brand Ambassador on their Floral Team. Handmade paper flowers have always been my reason to smile. I can spend hours and hours in my craft room to create paper flowers. It’s so much fun and relaxing to shape the paper into beautiful flowers and use them for my handmade cards and albums. I love creating layered cards and I see Elizabeth Crafts have some awesome dies to work on. I am excited to dig in and get started with my design team package that was sent by the company. Lots of floral and card inspirations coming your way in the coming months, for sure!!

Today, I am here on the Elizabeth Crafts Designs blog, showcasing my very first projects using Elizabeth Craft Designs supplies. Today, I have two projects to share. A beautiful floral card with a coordinating box and a Boxed booklet.

Project 1: BirthdayCard and its coordinating box

The ready-top fold card from smooth white cardstock measures 6″ by 7 1/2″. The card front is decorated using 3 panels cut using Stitched Indented Rectangles. I have used black and silver cardstock for the bottom and middle layers and patterned paper for the top layer. Extra dimensions are added using double-sided tape. The topmost panel is created using Stitched Ovals and pattern paper.

The beautiful paper flowers are created using Florals 14 and the green foliage is created using Elegant Leaves 1. The sentiment from With Love Sentiments stamp set is stamped in black on the banner cut from Book Box die set.

I coordinated the box using the same patterned paper and created a window using frames Stitched Indented Rectangle die. The sides of the box are decorated using a decorative die from Book Box die set. The threaded hearts made an easy lift to the card which I created using a heart die from Bon Bon Box Large die set. The decorative pink paper bow made using Bon Bon Box Large die made the box more presentable.

Project 2: Book Boxed Booklet

I love creating with a flow. I so wanted to try my hands on the beautiful Book box. Everything was out on my craft table so I decided to create this book box with my leftover flowers.

All the supplies used are the same as in my first project except the blue cardstock which really made a difference to my entire project when coordinated with silver cardstock.

Here is the complete list of supplies used in the above projects. All the supplies used from Elizabeth Crafts Designs are linked directly for easy purchases.

For more details on the projects, I have created small videos. The link to the videos are given below.

Hope you liked my projects. I‘m always happy to hear from you. It is a joy to read your comments and I’m grateful to you all. Thank you for spending your precious time here. For more inspiration, you can follow me on FacebookInstagramYoutube, and, Pinterest.

This “Bee”! has a fancy folded card.

June 21, 2023

Hi everyone, Katie here with todays blog post. Today I wanted to feature a super cool fun folded card using Anette’s Greens Bee and flower die from her Everyday Elements. So grab a coffee and let me walk you through how to create this card.

Out of your favorite card stock cut out your Bee, and “Thanks” word. Ink your edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and assemble your Bee and word quote.

Out of the designer paper of your choice (I used Bee Happy by Echo Park) I cut out the green stem and flower heads, ink and assemble.

Using a heavy white card stock cut your base 5 1/2 x 8 1/4. Score along the 8 1/4 side @ 1″, 2″, 3″, 5 1/4″, 6 1/4″ and 7 1/4″ , next at the red lines cut as per above.

Next fold up your score lines, and pop out your folds as per picture below.

(Back part of the card)

(top view)

After you have your card folded, you will want to cut your front cover strips.

Cut-two black strips of card stock 1 x 4″ and two strips of designer paper @ 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ (Top and bottom)

Cut-two black strip 1 3/8″ x 4 and one strip of designer paper @ 1 1/4″ x 4 7/8″ (Middle piece)

Cut-two black strips the side of the card base 1 x 5 3/8″ and two strips of designer paper at 7/8″ x 5 1/4, ink and assemble as per picture above.

Next, using the Everyday Elements Postage Stamps, cut out a large postage die using black card stock and a yellow mat from the coordinating designer paper.

I attached my flower, and added some black colored sisal underneath the pop-dotted Bee. Add your word and speckle using heavy white acrylic paint.

Thank you for joining me with todays blog post, have a wonderful day!
