You Complete Me Mini Slimline Card

January 25, 2022

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner I wanted to showcase the Gnomes in a love setting. Below is the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7” x 6”, score at 3 1/2” and fold in half for vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Diecut Heart Background using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Trim White Cardstock to 3 1/2” x 6” and diecut Puzzle Heart (solid heart die) on a slant. Discard the diecut and keep the negative piece. Trim Fuschia Cardstock to 3 1/2” x 6”. Place the Heart Background diecut on top of the trimmed Fuschia Cardstock and place the White negative Heart panel on top. Mark in pencil on the Fuschia panel how much you actually need for Heart Background Panel. Cut the Heart background piece and attach to the Fuschia panel. Now attach the White negative panel on top and attach to the card front. See photos below. Attach the whole panel to the card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 3 – Stamp Love sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink to the card front.

Step 4 – Diecut Gnomes in various colors of Cardstock. I added some shading to the face, hands, heart and Gnomes hat using various colors of Copic Markers. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue and adhere to card using Foam Tape. Add the remaining small heart using Kid’s Choice Glue.

This card can be used for several occasions by changing the sentiment and/or background and/or Basic Shape Window. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Little Snowman

January 20, 2022

Hello everyone, Alice here. For today’s blog post I made this cute little snowman. Here in the Netherlands there is no snow yet. Hopefully it wil come.

So this time I started working with the snowman. First I made a background with WOW! embossing powder. For this I used the color Skylight (ws231x). It is a powder with some larger shimmer pieces in it. And I love glitter so really love this one! I edited the whole background with the embossing powder.

I made a frame with the Fitted Hexagons. I used the largest die in the set and cut the hexagon in the middle of the square.

I added some snowflakes around the cut out hexagon. The snowflakes are from the Classic Christmas special kit (#K007). I decided to cut them in white to keep attention in the middle. I cute off the parts of the snowflakes that were hanging over the square.

After that I made the snowman in the middle. Colored the details with distress ink. The scarf is the same color as the embossing powder in the background (Cracked Pistachio). I added some trees behind the snowman . The trees are from the Winter Scenery set (#1926)

Finally I added a sheet of kraft paper behind the card front to finish it off.

I hope I was able to give you some inspiration today. See you next time!

Retro bus mini booklet – too much fun!

January 18, 2022

Hi fellow crafters, 

My name is Devid, and I am honored to be a new Band Ambassador for the Planner Essentials collection. It is a great collection, and I am completely hooked. This is my first ever blogpost here for Elizabeth Craft Designs and I am super excited!

In this blog I am working with the fantastic new Retro Bus Special, in this case I am making a mini book. 

Step 1: Die cut all the pieces you need out of the cardstock. 

Step 2: I used cardstock with a colored core. Using a sanding block, I distressed the paper exposing the lighter core. 

Step 3: Using Distress ink Frayed Burlap to lightly color the edges of the main parts. This not only gives it a vintage look but also helps to create depth. Always remember: light brings forward, dark creates depth. 

Step 4: Distress the metallic parts with a sanding block and give it a rusty look using a rose gold gilding wax.

Step 5: assemble the cover page in this order: base page, base layer, cover layer, insert windows if you made these, add tires and finish with bumper, head lights, mirrors and other embellishments.

I hope you give this fantastic set a go and enjoy it as much as I did. Thank you for reading my process and see you for the next one! All products I used are listed below.

Hello Winter – Mason Jar Album

January 17, 2022

Hello friends and thank you for dropping by. It is Karan back to share another project with you and today I am sharing a mini album I designed using the Mason Jar Kit. To beging with this mini album has 6 pages in it, each page is cut twice (except for the cover which I cut three times to include the acetate).

I created a shaker on the cover. I die cut the front piece twice on pattern paper and once out on acetate, adhering the acetate to the front pattern piece cover. To create the shaker part of the cover I used foam adhesive and created strips all along that to allow me the depth I needed to add my shaker bits.

Adding some art stones, prills (to coordinate with the paper) and some sequins along with a bit of glitter that created the shaker. I also die cut and stamped the sentiment on the mini mason jar for my title. I tied that to the twine I had wrapped around the jar lid.

I die cut the trees from the Mason Jar Kit and thought the Village Edges would add a great detail to the cover. 
For the inside, here are the pages i created, this is designed using the Cozy Winter Collection from P13

I cut each page out twice so they would be thick, using the dies from Planner Essentials 30. I cut out tags and used those as photo mats throughout. 
I used some of the journal tags in the collection as photo mats as well, and fussy cut some details out to further embellish my mini mason jar album. 

I made sure to cut jar toppers for each page to add more detail.

This page has some tags from the collection that I fussy cut. I used the Stitched circle die to die cut the circle globe

tag on the right side of the page. I die cut the mini mason jar and used it as an element on this page too.

These pages have some photo mats tucked in the mason jar belly band. I used the circle label stamps here. 


I hope you give the Mason Jar Kit a try, it makes a gorgeous album.

It’s Your Birthday Mini Slimline Card

January 11, 2022

Happy New Year!, it’s Tina here with my first post for 2022. I’m starting off the New Year with 2 promises I made in 2021. Turning the Holiday Train into a train that can be used all year round and turning the Scarecrow into a Raggedy Ann doll. Below are the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish to 7″ x 6″, score at 3 1/2″ and fold in half for a horizontal top fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Trim Stitched Indented Rectangles using White Soft Finish Cardstock. To turn it into a mini slimline size diecut partial leaving on end out. Turn it around and align it with the diecut and finish it with the end in and the other end out. Whatever is out of the cutting plate will not diecut. See photo below.

Step 3 – Apply Ink to the panel created in Step 2. I used Distress Oxide Ink Tumbled Glass using a Blender Brush. Fade it out towards the bottom.

Step 4 – Stamp Life Is Better On The Farm sentiment using the panel created from Step 2 using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Adhere to card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 5 – Diecut Scarecrow in various colors of cardstock and clothes using patterned paper. If you have the Party Accessories then diecut party hat and adhere to scarecrow head using Kids Choice Glue. If you don’t you can always cut a triangle and add a tiny pompom. For the balloon you can always use a small circle die and use a piece of yarn for the balloon cord.

Step 6 – Diecut Holiday Train and Train Card using various colors of cardstock. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue and adhere to card using Foam Tape. Adhere to Raggedy Ann and Balloon using Foam Tape. (You may need to trim the Raggedy Ann as per my card).

This card can be used for several occasions by changing the colors and/or sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Shadow Box Lighthouse

January 3, 2022

 Hello Friends and welcome back! its Karan here for my first post for 2022. Im excited to be back as Brand Ambassador and I am sharing another card today

I designed this using florals 1 for the flowers

,

I die cut the Village Edges twice. Using one on the inside of the box, attached to the card base, and one to the frame of the box, 

The front of the shadow box has acetate on it, so i thought the birds would look like they were really flying.

Being on the lake here in Northern Ontario, i love that Lighthouse and felt it would be perfect to create a scene on my card. This is designed on the Beached paper from 49 and Market. 

This is a perfect card for loved ones who might have purchased a cottage or like we have done, retired to the lake.

I hope you enjoy my first project for 2022 and I look forward to inspiring you this year.

Book of me

December 27, 2021

Hii everyone! Hopefully you all doing fine.

I’m here again (Lisanne) with a new blogpost for you. It is just a small project but a realy fun project. I made a little book with the Folded Arrow Insert (1870).

First I started with making a lot of different arrows so I have a little book already. Now I can decorate these little pages. In this blogpost I will tell about my front page. The paper is from Reminiscene 2. For the edge I used Distress Ink Frayed Burlap.

As you can see I started with a base and a smaller arrow with the sentiment ‘love this’. Before I adhere this part down I made a tab with a stamp ‘Book of me’. It is stamp from CS231. I will use this book for myself with positive things.

The next step is making the eye cather of this page. I tore some pink paper and adhere a picture frame at it with an eyelet. Behind the torn paper I put some grid from Planner Essentials 40.

Above the picture frame I adhere the beautiful girl in her lovely dress with bow.

At least I adhere the Reinforcements and the bookrings.

It is a short post this time but hopefully you liked it. Thankyou so much for reading!

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

Merry Christmas All

December 25, 2021

Merry Christmas everyone!! Jackie here today – I hope you are all enjoying the festivities.

I know its a bit late to want to recreate this Festive Christmas girl however she could easily be changed to suit birthdays and other occasions by switching the colours and removing the hat.

Step One:

Start by stamping out the sentiment towards the bottom left of a 5.25″ x 5.25″ top folding card blank. Next draw a curly line all around the edge.

Step Two:

Using the fairy lights die from the Train Carts die set 1924.

Die cut a few of the strung lights into black cardstock and cut the bulbs apart discarding the in between string, next die cut again into glitter card or paper but this time using just the bulbs. Carefully glue the glitter bulbs on top of the black bulbs. – silk microfine glitter can be used instead which I will link below.

Step Three:

Build the festive Christmas girl using the Witch die set 1906 with a few alterations – there are added pieces from the Winter Accessories die set 1829, all the pieces you need are laid out below however the belt will have to be cut down slightly to fit the waist. The fur trims have been cut from white felt backed with double sided sheet and thin card for added stability.

Step Four:

Glue the bulbs all the way around the drawn string leaving approximately 1cm between each bulb. Add a couple of details to the girl like black eye lashes and stripy socks then add white dots to the eyes before fixing the girl in place using 3d foam pads

This little Festive party girl would look fabulous in all sorts of colourful outfits and the fur trim could be switched for a glittery trim. The possibilities are endless! Thank you for stopping by and I hope I have inspired you to have a go at creating a party girl or two.

Products used I have added the silk microfine glitter as an option.

Snow Globe Shaker Card

December 22, 2021

Hi Friends and welcome to my last blog post for the year for Elizabeth Craft Designs. It was a little over a year ago when I first began my journey with Elizabeth Crafts. Creating with their florals and A5 Planner dies this past year has been so much fun. I just couldn’t close out my year without sharing one final Christmas Card. 

At this point, I am not sure what 2022 will bring with Elizabeth Craft Designs, but I hope you love my final project. 

The florals were designed using Florals 12. I know I have shared a lot of projects with these florals but Christmas to me isn’t just a day, it isn’t just a month, it’s a season. And this Season my family and I have much to be thankful for!  So with Christmas season upon us, I set out to create one last Christmas Card for 2021.

Here on St Joseph Island, we see deer all the time. They are almost sighted each day we head out for errands. I couldn’t resist creating a shaker card with Joset’s Snow Globe and those deer and trees from the Winter Scenery Set.  

To begin with, I cut out the globe on pattern paper and on craft cardstock and than traced it out on acetate so I have a full size piece for the front of the globe. I fussy cut out foam tape and taped the back trim of the die to create a shaker card. I placed glitter on the inside of the shaker.

I cut four of the trees from the Winter Scenery Die Set and cut thin strips of foam tape to adhere to the back of the trees to add some dimension to the globe. I adhered the deer from the Snow Globe Sidekick Set to the front. I just love how this looks, it creates an awesome winter scene in that globe doesn’t it? 

Die cutting out 6 large and 6 medium florals along with 6 leaves I colored and shaped them (if you are a member of the Elizabeth Crafts family Group on Facebook, I did a Live on Friday, Dec 17th and you can see just how I shaped and created those gorgeous florals here: Live Facebook with Karan. If you are not a member, be sure to become one so you can view the replay)

So getting back to my card, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment from the Classic Christmas Sentiments set using White Embossing Powder and attached that to the bottom of the card. 

My final step was to add snow paste and I thought some Art Stones would be a nice touch and look like snow balls around the florals. 

Thank you for following me along this year with my craft shares for Elizabeth Craft Designs. Have yourself a Merry Christmas and I am praying that 2022 will see us all back to normal. Blessings for a bright, prosperous and Healthy 2022!

Yes it was snowing when I took this photo, so fitting for the style of my card Happy Scrapping and I hope to be sharing more with you in 2022!

Fun and Games

December 15, 2021

Hello friends, it’s Sandy Diller here today with a fun little card using the adorable Gnomes out for a Joy ride. I hope Santa doesn’t see them because he would put them on the naughty list for sure. I have to giggle each time I look at these little guys.

This is a 5″ X 7″ easel card so the base is 7″ X 10″ with a score in the center. Then another score line was added in the center of the card front so it can fold. Color was added to a third panel and then cut out using the Dotted Background die. The snowdrift was cut using the Long Adventure Edges and the added below the blue panel.

The panel with the snowdrift and sky were added to another white panel and then added to the card base – gluing only to the bottom portion of the front panel (below the fold).

The Jeep was cut and assembled. Using dies from the Train Cart set, lights were added. I cut the light strings from black and then added lights from white Soft Finish Cardstock that were colored with markers. The wreath is from the Reindeer die set and then decorated with Craft Dots. A bow was added just for fun. You can use any bow in your collection.

I just love these adorable gnomes so cut out 4 using different colors for their hats. For the driver I cut the steering wheel in half to make it appear that his beard was flying around the wheel. His hat was creased backward to make it look like it’s blowing in the wind.

For the gnome driving the jeep I cut the hands from the die set and then cut the finger off making a rounded hand to hold the wheel. A little pink ink was added to the hands

A greeting was stamped on a panel with another snowbank. A crease was added near the top to hold the front panel open. This panel was added to the inside panel of the card and attached only to the crease line. This card stands for display and is so much fun but it also folds flat for mailing.

Now the only thing left is to add the little details like the gifts falling from the jeep and the strings of lights.

Wishing all of you a most joyous holiday season and a happy new year,

Sandy
