Shaker Bookbox

June 16, 2022

Hi Everyone, Irina here! Today it is my turn to write a blog. I love shaker cards, so I decided to create a shaker part on the bookbox. I only used black and white, but I think it is very beautiful in different colors!

Let’s start!

Die cut 2 covers from the bookbox out of cardstock.

Cut one of them as in the picture below (step 1) and also cut off the lock.

– Diecut the rectangle out of that part. ( step 2 in picture above)

– Put acetate behind.

– Add double sided foamtape on the back (step 3 in picture)

– Take your other cover and put some shaker material on it ( step 4 in picture)

– Glue the part with the acetate window on it

Now make the inside part of the bookbox as usual.

Make some paperflowers and glue them around the acetate window.

Now your shaker bookbox is finished! I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Until next time!

Xoxo Irina

Hello Sunshine –

June 15, 2022

Hello Friends and thank you for dropping in. Today I am sharing a card with you. This is designed using Florals 6, along with the Stitched Indented Rectangles and a couple new stencils on the background. 

I started by cutting out three of each of the floral sizes from florals 6 onto the soft finish cardstock. I also cut out five of the leaves. 

The Florals
I also cut out 3 of small florals from Florals 16. I colored the Florals 6 using Saltwater Taffy Distress Ink, and the Florals 16 using scattered straw. I then shaped the Florals 6 forming three peonies. The small florals 16 i just inserted a wired stamen. 


The Background
I wanted to use the new stencils and started  by stamping CS146 Background Stamp with Black Archival Ink, I also used CS253 Note Pieces ( the smaller graph stamp) Once I stamped the images, I used the S044 Planner Stencils 1 and I used Light Texture Paste. I then used the Number Stencil and used a blending tool using Saltwater Taffy on the background creating a tone on tone color. I then splatter some white acrylic ink and gold paint

I cut some stitched indented rectangles and only used strips of them to add some layers, what a great way to add layers, without all the bulk of a full layer. 

I used peach threaded pollens  in the center of the peonies and thought they blend so beautifully with the colors in the pattern paper. 

I hope you have enjoyed my project today. Until Next Time.

Happy Scrapping,

Karan

Inky Fun

June 3, 2022

Karen here today. I’m sharing a couple cards I made today using two of the fun product lines available here at Elizabeth Craft Designs. In both, I created a simple and easy inky background. In one, I added one of the critters available in the Joset’s Designs line as a Christmas card. in the other, I created a birthday card using a die from Anita’s Floral line.

This first card is a fun, quick Christmas Card. Below, I posted a picture of the inks that I used. They glide so smoothly on the 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock that I used. So pretty. I created the Penguin using black cardstock and more of the Soft Finish Cardstock and put him on a Stitched and Fitted Circle. For the penguin feet and nose, I used an orange Copic, and I used the same ink on the background as I did for the hat. The sentiment is from the Cute Winter Sentiments set.

Another simple and yet elegant card – I love the colors on this card. I kept the Fern die cut white as I felt it really helped the background colors to pop. The sentiment is from the Smell the Flowers set.

Again, the blending on this beautiful Soft Finish Cardstock is so good and effortless. Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to check out all of the amazing products.

Craftily yours, Karen

Under The Sea

June 2, 2022

It’s me again, Els. It is already June and that means a new Month with new inspiration. This time I made a sea style card and below you will find the step by step instructions. I hope you have as much fun as I did making this card. Have fun creating!

Cut out the dies of white cardstock and the upper layers from silver cardstock. I didn’t used the fish and the binoculars.

Color the white cut-outs with Ink and glue the silver cardstock on top of them.

Cut a piece of white cardstock of 4″ x 8″ for a the card base and make a 21/4 inch hole in the center.

Glue the porthole over the hole on top the octopus with the helmet and below the shell and starfish.

Glue acetate behind the hole.

Put some rust paste on the porthole and the helmet and place some glossy accent drops on the acetate. Stamp some bubbles.

Put some glossy accent on the bubbles too and glue some prills down.

Stamp 2 Jellyfish on a light blue paper and stick it behind the porthole.

Take a piece of White Cardstock 41/4″ x 81/4″ and make a light construction where the Jelly fish are coming.

Then place the card back and adhere 3D foam behind that so the light has space enough.

Cut a fern and 5 flowers out of white cardstock and color them with Green and Blue ink, then shape them and put a blue stamen in the center hole.

Place the flowers as shown on the photo and then your card is finished! I hope you like the card and that you give it a try!

Flower Pot

April 18, 2022

Hello everyone, it’s Alice here. Hope you all had a wonderful Easter. I’m very much into Spring mood these day with the beautiful sun shining here in the Netherlands. I therefore decided to make a colorful card using some lovely flower dies and the gnomes! I hope you enjoy creating this card or some of the techniques I will show you in this post.

First I started with the flower pot. For this I first edited a piece of paper with Dylusions spray. I then used this paper to die cut the flower pot. I then embossed the pot using an embossing folder from Tim Holtz, see picture below. This gives a nice wood structure to your flower pot. I then sprayed the pot with embossing glaze. After that I used a distress crayon to make the darker spots on it.

Then I made the lovely gnomes. They are so cute! You can use them in a winter theme but also in a spring theme.

I made a girl and boy gnome. The colors on the gnomes I made this time with ZIG markers, they are watercolor pencils. Love them to color the different parts. They have beautiful colors with a lot of pigment in it.

On the top of the flower pot I made some lovely flowers with the Florals 7 set (#1843). I used 3 of the 5 sizes for this. I colored the flowers also with the ZIG markers. In the middle of the flowers I added some beads using Glossy Accents and let it dry.

In the background I made clouds with a mask and Distress Ink Oxide Tumbled Glass. I backed the card with some Modascrap paper in the same color theme as the flowers and the gnomes.

This was my creation for today. I hope I inspire you to make a card in this spring theme!

See you next time!

Greetings Alice

Elegant flower card

April 15, 2022

Hi everyone, it’s Marla back with another ECD card share. It’s so nice to finally be able celebrate wedding season properly. If you are like me and have several weddings to attend, the recently released “Florals 4” dies are just what you need to create spectacular wedding cards. The card I am sharing today will not only wow a bride and groom but can be used for many other celebrations. Let’s begin…

Step 1. Cut out your flowers and pistols using the “Florals 14” dies and white cardstock. Use a sponge dauber to apply color to your flowers on both the front and back side. I used “Dried Marigold” Distress Oxide and then added “Worn Lipstick”, making sure to leave white space toward the tips of the petals. Add depth with a coordinating-colored pencil to define the embossed line down the center of each petal and add shading toward the center. Then color your pistols, I used Distress Oxide in “Squeezed Lemonade.”

Step 2. Use a stylus to shape each flower layer. I spritzed the backsides of mine with water and gently depressed the end of each petal to help curl them under. Once the layers are shaped glue your flower layer as desired, making sure to offset the petals.

Step 4 Cut out the leaves using “Leaves and Branches” from vellum and white cardstock. Color the backs of a few of your vellum leaves. I used “Bundled Sage Distress Oxide” ink. Using wet glue, add ECD “Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter” to the leaves cut from white cardstock.

Step 5 Stamp and trim down a sentiment. I used a sentiment from the “For You” stamp set.  

Step 6. Cut an ivory piece of cardstock to 8.5″ by 3.5″ and emboss with a slimline embossing folder. Use two slimline dies to create a frame and layer it on top of the embossed panel. Attach to an 8.75″ x 3.75″ side folding card base.

Step 7. Arrange and glue your flowers and leaves to your card panel.

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

Spring is in the Air

April 1, 2022

Hi Everyone, It’s Els here and it is my turn again to give you some inspiration. I made a spring card, you can use it for many occasions. Below you will find the step by step instructions, I hope you will give this card a try………

This is the card I made for you today, I hope you like it so let’s make it…………………

Cut out 10 of the big flowers, 5 of the middle ones and 5 of the leaves and 1 fern.

Color them with Ink in the color you like, this is how I did it.

Spray the flowers lightly with water on the front and shape them with a shaping tool from the outside to the centre, then turn them and press in the centre.

Now Glue 2 of the flowers on top of eachother and place stamens in the centre.

For the background I used alcohol inks on Yupo paper.

Cut a base card at 81/2 – 81/2 and fold it in half, then take the background and cut it in 3 different sizes and glue them down with a little bit of space in between.

First put on some leave gold on the card, Color some Cheesecloth and place a piece on the card, then start to build your flower cluster, start with the fern and then first all the big flowers, later you fill it up with leaves and the other flowers.

Now place the leaves and the other flowers.
