November 2, 2022

Hi Everyone, Els Schutte here. Time flies another Month so it is my turn again to give you some inspiration. I made a Christmas card with the Holly Planner page. Below you will find the step by step instructions. Enjoy!

  • Cut out Planner frame of Gold paper, and 4 of the small holly leaves, then cut 6 big, 6 small Florals 14 in red cardstock and 2 big and 2 small of green cardstock.
  • Color the holly leaves green , shape the flowers and glue 3 on top of eachother.
  • Glue some red berries on top of the holly branch.
  • Take a design paper and the Holly page frame and cut the side of the holes off like 1/4 or so……then glue it on top of the design paper.
  • Now mat everything on a white 41/2 x 81/2 card, then place the holly leaves and the poinsettias on the card like you see on this image.
  • Place some pinecones and decorate the leaves, flowers with some snow ( paste).
  • I also did some glossy accent on the berries on the design paper……..

I hope you enjoyed this card and that you will give it a try! You can use any design paper you want!

Have fun creating this card!

Wonderful Time of Year

September 15, 2022

Hello creative friends welcome back to the Elizabeth Crafts Blog, it is Karan Gerber here to share a holiday card with you. Although it seems a bit early to be sharing Holiday cards, my desk is full of Christmas Projects at the moment so i wanted to get a jump start on a few more.

Using Planner Essentials 47 to cut out the tree, i cut it out 6 times, just trimming off the tree and i layered them all in the circles. I then cut the deer on a coordinating paper from the collection i was using. 

I used the stitched circles to create a winter scene, starting with the smaller circle on the inside layer, then the larger circle on the outside layer. Using foam adhesive  to pop the layers to allow me to create this lovely winter scene


The florals 12, i used and cut out on Foamiran which is a light felt paper, i shaped and added stamens, paint , then a bit of snow paste and finally glitter to the centers. They turned out so beautiful, that i know i will be doing this technique again and again.

I love how this winter scene turned out, and what a great way to get a jumpstart on my Holiday Cards. I hope you dig into your planner essentials and see which ones will work for your holiday cards

Christmas Flowers

Hello everyone! Irina here with a Christmas card. I always like clean and simple cards. My favorite color is blue, but I also like green very much and I thought it would be fun to create a green Christmas card. On this blog I show you how I created this card.

Start with white cardstock from 5 x 5 inch.

Pick a stencil you like and use a soft grey ink. I used Hickory smoke oxide ink.

My stencil was to short, so I had to flip it over as you can see on the picture below.

For the middle squares use:

Black cardstock 3 3/4 inch and green cardstock 3 1/2 inch.

Glue the black and green together and centre it on your base.

Take a piece of hempcord and use tape to add it in your card.

Diecut your flowers. I used Florals 12 ( 1873 )

Only color the leaves with ink or markers.

Shape your flowers and glue them together.

Now it’s time to glue the flowers and leaves on your card.

I thought it would be fun to use one of the Circles with Sentiments stamps. ( CS276)

Last but not least, take a piece of white cardstock from 11 x 5.5 inch, fold it in the middle. Now glue your card on this base and your Christmas card is finished.

Hope you like it!! Thanks for watching en reading this blog! See you next time!

Xoxo Irina

Autumn is Drawing Near

August 10, 2022

Hello, my ECD friends, Marla here with another project share. The dog days of summer are quickly coming to an end and soon fall will be here, bringing with it cooler days and nights. My card today takes us deep into the end of fall with rich mahogany’s, red, orange, amber, gold and yellows. Let’s see how these colors came together on my card today, shall we?

  • Spritz a generous amount of water onto a watercolor panel and sprinkle on Lindy’s Stamp Gang “Magical ” powders. For my card I added “Autumn Maple Crimson, Cattail Copper Brown, Red Hot Poker Orange and Bayou Boogie Gold.” Spritz with more water to activate the powders. Dry the panel and repeat until desired effect is achieved.
  • Add water droplets to your panel. Then, sprinkle black embossing powder over the droplets and heat set. Did you know you could heat emboss with water?
  • Die cut your leaves using the ECD “Maple Leaves” die. Add dimensional foam tape to the back of each leaf.
  • Add ink to a 3.75″ x 5″ in piece of white cardstock. I used Distress Inks in “Barn Door, Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey and Fossilized Amber.”
  • Place the ECD “Rocks” stencil over the inked panel and add ink randomly through the stencil onto your panel. I used Distress Ink in “Gathered Twigs”. Spritz the panel with water if you like for added texture. Splatter your panel using the “Magical” powders.
  • Arrange your leaves around your inked panel and adhere along with your sentiment
  • Cut a coordinating piece of cardstock add gold watercolor on the edges to 4″ x 5.25″ and mount your panel to the inked layer using additional foam tape. Then adhere to a 4.25″ x 5.5″ top folding card base and add sequins if desired.

That completes our card for today. I hope this inspired you to start creating with your fall supplies. I have added the ECD product links below for easy shopping. Until next time…. Marla

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

‘smell the flowers’

June 22, 2022

Hello everyone, Jackie here with today’s post.

I just want to say what an amazing design team we have here at Elizabeth Crafts Designs, I am constantly blown away by the talent of my fellow teamies. My post today has been inspired by the beautiful work from Tina Guigui Dornbaum and you can find the inspirational design here: Sending Hugs & Kisses Mini Slimline Card – Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Step One:

Attach a small light blue piece of scrap card to the top half of a top folding A2 card blank. Die cut a stitched rectangle panel slightly smaller than die cut a small circle in the top centre using a small circular die.

Step Two:

Die cut the daffodil’s into a pale yellow and green cardstock then ink around the edges to add some definition.

Step Three:

Attach the stitched panel to the card front using 3d foam pads. Fix the daffodils on top starting with the stems.

Step Four:

Stamp out the sentiment on black card using embossing ink then sprinkle with white embossing powder and set with a heat tool. Fix across the stems using more 3d foam pads then add a few clear gems to finish.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope both Tina and myself have inspired you to give this these beautiful daffodils cards a go.

Happy crafting – Jackie x
