Make a wish

August 8, 2022

Hello everyone, Jackie here with todays blog post. Today I have made a card using the cake element from the new die set Party Time 1978, although you could easily add any die cut element to this simple background.

Step One:

First create the background. Take an acrylic block of any size and swipe ink across it in a striped pattern, spritz some water on to the block then stamp this onto a panel of card stock cut slightly smaller than A2. I used distress oxide ink squeeze lemonade for this step. Once dry add a few splashes of watered down black paint.

Step Two:

Take an A2 top folding card blank and use the squeezed lemonade and ink all the way around the edges then splash some water on top. Rough up the panel edges before attaching the panel to the front.

Step Three:

Die all cut the cake elements but before fixing them together add a line of white craft drops to each piece of cake, once dry add the pink icing tops using foam pads and arrange all the pieces on the card front keeping them slightly separate and wonky for a quirky look.

Step Four:

Stamp out the sentiment using black ink then finish off the design with a few stars both die cut and sequin.

This is a nice quick card if you need an idea in a hurry. You can add a number of different toppers to the background for whatever occasion you need.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you to have a go.

Happy crafting – Jackie

Celebrate

August 3, 2022

Hello everyone, Alice here! How are you today? It’s my turn to show you a project here. This time I made a card with the Planner Essentials 42 and the Monster dies. I had so much fun creating this card and I hope you will to!

One of the frames has the text Celebrate. A perfect theme for this creation. I die cut the frames in a pink cardstock. The one on the left and on the right are basic frames. The one in the middle is the one with the text. For the background I used some patterned paper with bricks on it. For a special effect I made some splatters with distress oxide in the color Peacock Feathers.

Then I made two cute little monster, one I die cut from pink cardstock and the other one from light blue/aqua cardstock. Two little friends having fun! I die cut some cookies as accessories for the pink one.

I also die cut some party accessories as decoration using dies from the Party time set. The garlands are all over the place. How fun are those!

I also added some confetti pieces all over the card using the same colors as the rest of the card. In the end I added some white splatters all over the card. Now let the party begin!

I hope this project makes you as happy as the monsters on this card. Have a lot of fun creating this card by yourself. See you next time!

Greetings Alice

Halloween Mixed Media – Monster Mash!

July 20, 2022

Hi everyone, I wanted to get a jump start on my Halloween/Fall projects so I made this super fun but messy Monster Mixed Media Planner Pages. So Lets get started.

Step 1: You will need Tim Holtz Distress Sprays, I used Black Soot, Straw and Carved Pumpkin, but any combination will do. You will also need Rangers Heavy Watercolor Paper, Moon Mask, Planner Essentials 2, Water Spritzy Bottle and Heating tool.

Step 2: Cut your two planner pages using Planner Essentials 2 from the Ranger Heavy Watercolor Cardstock. next place you Lrg Moon Mask on the top part of your left hand page.

Step 3: Spray your Straw, Carved Pumpkin and Black Soot as per the picture above, once you have finished. Carefully lift your moon mask.

Step 4: Once you moon mask has been lifted, heat set with your heating tool.

Step 5: Once your page is dry I lightly spritzed the center of my moon so the distress spray activates. I then spritzed the side spray on my mixed media mat and dabbed the center of my moon. For my right hand side page I spritzed with the straw, Carved Pumpkin and Black Soot and dried it with my heating tool. (As per picture above)

Step 6: I cut out my Halloween Monsters from coordinating cardstock and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink or your choice of ink colors.

Step 7: Out of Planner Essentials Halloween Set 2, cut out your Haunted House, word and Number 31 from your choice of cardstock.

Step 8: Out of Planner Essentials 3 and heavy Black Card Stock cut out your Spider Web Frame and attach to your right hand side planner page.

Step 9: Once your Monsters are assembled, I attached my Haunted House down first, then my Monster Witch and Blue Pirate Monster the Cooking Pot was pop dotted on top of both monsters and the bat is attached with a small pop-dot to the top of the moon. (As per picture above)

Step 10: I matted the Halloween word onto Black and Lime Green Cardstock and attached to the top of my page. Next I attached my Monster Spider to the Web. I did not glue down the web as it leaves room to slide in a photo in the background.

Step 11: Add your reinforcement rings to both pages,

Step 12: And the best part is saved for last, I speckled both pages using a fan brush and heavy mixed media white paint.

I hope todays blog post brought you some inspiration and a little bit of Halloween Fun!

Thank you and Happy Crafting >Katie<

Happy Days

July 13, 2022

Hello friends and welcome back to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog. Today, I am sharing a a card using Florals 11 as my flowers for this gorgeous card. 

Coloring the florals from the center out this time using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and setting stamens from Dress my Craft in the center. 

I wanted to add some stamped leaves in there and used the Kindness Stamp and Die and stamped out some leaves and the dandelion looking image using peeled paint, die cut them and just left them white, what a great detail and layer they add to this card, don’t you think?

The stitched circle, i backed with acetate and cut the intricate die from The Book out twice, cutting off the outside edges and lining the two die cuts up to fill the circle which worked perfectly. 

I decided i wanted even more detail and used the vine from the Strawberry set, colored with with Peeled paint Distress ink and i gave the tip a bit of shaping. 
Once i was all done, i decided to tone the color down a bit by using a bit of snow paste and white acrylic splatters. 

Thank you for dropping by today, I hope i have inspired you to create some florals. Until Next Time, Happy Scrapping!

See-through Flower frame

July 12, 2022

Hello everyone, Irina here with a flower project today! I started working with the awesome shadow box frames in combination with acetate, stencils and paper flowers. I think acetate is so great to use. Enjoy reading.

Start with the small shadow box frame. Trim them at 5 inch (or the size you prefer).

Glue them together.

Trim the acetate at 5 x 5 inch (or take the size of your frame)

Put some structure paste on the acetate with a stencil.

Glue the acetate behind your frame with tape.

Die cut some flowers and branches and color them. I have used distress ink.

Glue the paper flowers together.

Arrange them on the frame.

Maybe you want to add a sentiment. I didn’t add a sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by the blog. Untill next time.

Xoxo Irina

Christmas In July Bouquet

July 8, 2022

Hi, Marla here today, with a Christmas in July card. Can you believe we have already moved into July? Why not start the month out with a little Christmas inspiration? I know you’re what you’re thinking, “I can’t begin to think about that right now. I’m enjoying my summer.” We aren’t going to get frosty just yet. Let’s hit the hot house instead and build a Christmas floral bouquet. Here’s how my card was created.

1. Die cut your ECD “Flower Pot/Pail” from white cardstock and add ink. Add foam tape to the back.

2. Die cut two ECD “Berry Branches” from white cardstock and add ink. Then add wet glue to the top of each berry and add Prills. Set aside to dry.

3. Die cut the several of the smallest flower from ECD “Florals 14.” Add ink in desired color on both the front and back sides. Spritz with water and pinch the ends of each petal toward the center. Add Prills to the center with wet glue.

4. Die but two branches from white cardstock using ECD “Leaves 1.” Coat with Versmark Ink and add gold embossing powder, then heat set.

5. Die cut three pine branches, using white cardstock from ECD “Leaves & Branches” and add ink.

6. Add a 4.25 x 5.25 piece of patterned paper to an A2 top folding card base. Add decorative trim 2/3’s way down behind where flowerpot will be placed.

7. Adhere your flowerpot. Using the slit at the top begin to arrange the bouquet in the flowerpot.

8. Cut a small circle three times and glue together to create a chipboard circle. Stamp a holiday greeting in the center then add it to the center of your flowerpot. Tie a bow from thin ribbon and adhere to the top of your sentiment circle.

That completes my card for today. Thank you for joining me. Until next time…. Marla

Let’s party

July 7, 2022

Hii all! It’s time for a new blogpost with the newest dies from Joset. What a fun collection for such a fun cards. Today I want to share this planner page. The monsters are having a party in the castle.

I started with making a background at the Mason Jar. I did this with Distress Oxide Ink Salvaged Patina and Uncharted Mariner. I put some ink at my glass mat used the spray bottle and dipped the paper in the ink. Between every layer you need to dry it with the heattool so you can make layers. If you don’t the ink will mix.

This technique is a funny way to make backgrounds. I did this also with the lit from the jar.

Then I made the Castle from the Once upon a time collection. I coloured this with Distress Oxide Ink Hickory Smoke and stamped with CS185 some stones. Later I made lines at the windows so you can see them better.

Now it is time to adding the monsters. I used 1 monster, wings from another monster and the hands from monster 1. They are watching us, you can feel that isn’t it hihi.

I adhere the castle at the background and adhere the top of the jar at the castle. The castle is a little bit larger than the jar. So the pieces that are out of the bottle are trimmed.

I thought this page need more dimension so I adhere the bats and the boiler at the jar. These are from the Halloween Accessoires. At the boiler I stamped the sentiment ‘Let’s party’ from the new stamp set. Oh and at least the reinforcements.

I’ll hope you like this blogpost. Soon I will share more creations with the monsters. So I will see you soon! Bye bye!

Christmas In July Card

July 5, 2022

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. It’s Christmas In July and I wanted to share a Snow Globe Shaker Card using the Snow Globe and Village Edges Dies. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8” x 6”, score at 4” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (in between an A2 and Mini Slimline card)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 3 3/8” x 4 6/8”. Apply Ink of your choice using 3 tones of Purple Blue using a Blender Brush. I used water reactive inks so I could splash some water to create some texture to my background. For added interest splash some White Gouache mixed with a little water. Let Dry.

Step 3 – Diecut Snow Globe using White Soft Cardstock. Place it on the background created in Step 3 to cut out the domed shape on top. I marked it with a pencil using the outer edge and trimmed off about 1mm inside the pencil line. Adhere to the background to the card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Put the Snow Globe frame aside from now.

Step 4 – Diecut Village Edges using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Trim to 3 3/8” length and adhere to the bottom of the background using Kid’s Choice Glue. I diecut 2 layers. I kept the diecut windows and doors intact. Optional – diecut the Trees in colors of your choice. I used Teal Cardstock.

Step 5 – Adhere Acetate Sheet on the bottom side of the Snow Globe frame using Glue of your choice. Let dry. Add thin Foam Tape to the backside frame. Trim the edges overhanging. Add Sequins of your choice to the top of the card front to the center. I used Purple Sequins and Silver Stars. Remove the release sheet from the Foam Tape and carefully secure it to the card front.

Step 6 – Diecut Snow Globe (bottom) 3 times. Stamp Holiday Sparkle sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink to the center. Attach each layer leaving the sentiment on top and adhere to the underneath of the Snow Globe using Foam Tape.

There is no such thing as making Holiday cards too early. We are already in July. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Holly Jolly, here is Santa!

June 28, 2022

Hello everyone, Marjolijn here today. Immediately when I saw the retro bus from Elizabeth Craft Designs I thought of a Christmas bus. Love Peace & Christmas. And how I like him. Santa is behind the wheel but when you open the map…

Ho-Ho-Ho!!!! Look who’s there!!!

How cute is he? Below you see a working description of the card.

First I die-cut all parts from paper from Esther’s reminiscence book 1. Then all parts got an edge with frayed burlap

The card is made of white sturdy paper, I used DCP, you can also use ECD soft finish cardstock. Fold 30 x 15 cm paper in half and place the folded edge against the cutting line.

Unfold the card and punch out the windows, do not turn any further than just past the blue arrow.

Santa Claus is colored with brush markers.

Santa Claus is glued into the card so that he just barely fits behind the wheel. Then stick a piece of design paper over the reinforce holes and the steering wheel.

Stamp the text on the side. Special delivery, I cut the stamp in half for that.

I cut off the stars.

On the inside I punched out the parts of which you can see the back of the paper again and glued them over it. On the front I made the lighting with some snow stars and glued the small cut stars on it. Finally, I twisted a string around the tree.
