Take it easy

May 26, 2022

Hi all! I have a new planner page to share with you. I’ve made the right side another time so now I need to make the left side. When I make pages next to each other I use the same colors and the same elements. For this page I used the new Special Kit ‘Suitcase’, some Planner Essentials stencils, Planner Essentials dies and the cute Octopus from Joset.

For this page I used some older dies and Planner Essentials 1 with a tab at the top. I used Paint On Denim paper for this part. Then I used the dies from Planner Essentials 29 as layer. For this piece I added some structure with the newest Planner Essentials Stencils and Distress Oxide ‘Walnut Stain’.

Before I adhere this part at the base I gave the sides some Distress Ink Frayed Burlap. All the pieces I used are inked with the same color. At the right side I added a strip from an older die.

The next step is making the suitcase. I need 2 suitcases for this card because I want to open the suitcase.

As you can see I added a blue wave at the bottom of the suitcase which is included in the kit. I made a score line in this die so you can adhere this at the back and front of the suitcase.

So back to the front. First I made some structure again the Planner Essentials Stencils and Distress Oxide Ink Stormy Sky. Then I made the boat and the suitcase straps. To close the suitcase I used a piece of hemp cord.

Then the inside of the suitcase. At the top I made a little pocket with on top the new stamp from CS269 which is in the suitcase. I also used some leftover pieces and a little tab.

At the bottom I used the same colors.

For this part I used the Octopus with his wheel and also stamp CS269. I stamped ‘take it easy’ in 2 pieces so you can make it smaller.

Before I adhere the suitcase at the page I made something behind it. I used the fishtail dies from the suitcase kit. Behind this dies I put some elements from the Reminiscene the Book 4 but also some dies which I kept from other projects, like the Photo Film Slides and the structure die.

Here you can see the whole page when the suitcase is folded out.

I hope you like this page. I had a lot of fun making this page.

Thank you for reading! See you soon!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Hip Hip Hooray!

May 25, 2022

Hello Everyone.. Jackie here today with my latest design using Joset’s wonderful dies. I have been inspired by the Queens Platinum Jubilee celebrations soon to be here in the U.K. but this can easily be switched up to suit any occasion.

Step One:

Create a frame using the stitched indented square dies by nesting two together secured with a little piece of tape then die cut out a black frame. The outside of this frame measures 12x12cm

Step Two:

Cut a Square of gold glitter card measuring 12x12cm, draw a square on the reverse side measuring 10x10cm then carefully cut this out creating another frame.

Step Three:

Next take a 15x15cm textured card blank (or smooth if you prefer) then stamp out the ticker tape mainly in the centre then softly colour with coloured pencils.

Step Four:

Add the glittered frame first at a slight angle using 1mm foam pads then add the black frame on top again with a slight angle.

Step Five:

Build the characters in the colours of your choice, I have added detail to the shield using a white gel pen and also white dots on their eyes. Fix them to the card front using 2mm foam pads.

Step Six:

Add a Sentiment to the left hand side, If you don’t have a sentiment for your occasion then you could hand write one yourself.

That’s it for this time, I hope I have inspired you to have a go at this design! Happy crafting – Jackie

Is it Christmas Yet?

May 20, 2022

Karen here. I love doing holiday cards, and the best dies for holiday cards are here at Elizabeth Craft Designs. Is May too soon to start making our holiday projects? I think not!

I used the adorable Winter Bird in this card along with a sentiment from the Cute Winter Sentiments to create this card. The branch is colored with a brown Copic marker, and the legs and beak are colored with an orange Copic. The bird has distress inks in Festive Berries, Salty Ocean, and Tumbled Glass. I added some punched silvery stars and half beeds for some extra interest. How cute is that birdie??

For this card, I used the Hay Ride dies to create the fun Christmas Cart and added tress and presents from the Sleigh dies! I cut the pieces of this one in colored cardstock. Again, I used the Cute Winter Sentiments. In both cards, the card front is cut with a Stitched Rectangle die using 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Floral It’s Your Birthday Mini Slimline Card

May 17, 2022

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I just love the Daffodils dies and I wanted to see what other colors they come in. I was amazed there is quite a few. I came across the Riot Daffodil and it is the inspiration for my card. The Riot is a reddish pink center but I chose to do mine in a darker pink. Below you will find 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 a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 3 1/4” x 5 3/4”. Apply Light Blue Ink to the top of the panel using a Blender Brush and fading out to about 3/4. Adhere to card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Diecut Daffodil using White Soft Finish if you will color in all the pieces. If not then use colored cardstock. I chose to color all my pieces in Copic Markers. I used a sticky mat to hold all the pieces including the negative while I colored. Assemble all and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 4 – Stamp Life Is Better On The Farm sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Diecut the sentiment using Diagonal Stitched Fishtails. Trim of the left side and adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

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

Cockatoo Fun

May 11, 2022

Hello everyone.. It’s my turn on the blog today with this fun hanging frame decoration featuring three cute fun loving cockatoos. The frame is made to look like bamboo, now I know that bamboo is not really square but anything goes in papercraft right!

Step One.

Die cut the smallest frame part four times into buff coloured card then use the watercolour paints to make the frame pieces resemble bamboo, a very small thin paint brush will make this easier.

Step Two

Pierce four holes into what will become the top most part of the frame, you will only need to do this on one part, make a re-enforcer for each hole to add some stability. See photo for approximate hole placement.

Step Three

Roll up a piece of card approximately 5cm long, you can use a straw or pen to help make the card roll. Once rolled nice and tightly fix with glue then use the watercolour paints again to create a wood effect, then use a pointed tool to puncture a hole though the wooden batten at each end.

Step four

Next die cut and build all the parrots and flowers using the photo for colour reference, the parrot is coloured using a pale pink Spun Sugar distress ink and his feet are coloured a with a light grey Hickory Smoke, colour the eye with black ink then add a tiny white dot in the centre.

Step five

Attach the wooden swing post, feed the thread through the holes and knot. Then start arranging the leaves and flowers in two corners.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is wood-984x1024.jpg

Step Six

Add the parrots to finish.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you to have a play with these brilliant new frame dies.

Until next time – Happy crafting Jackie

Cow’s it going?

May 9, 2022

Hello everyone! Today it’s my turn to show you a nice creation. This time I started working with a TN page.

First I die cut the puzzle page (1848). For this I used paper from the Rainbow of Happiness paper pas (C006). Love this paper pad because of the bright colors! On the left die cut the spot that comes with the puzzle page. I used this as a cow stain. Behind this I made a black square, only adhered at the edges so I could add the cow in between.

In the square on the right side I made a shaker window. I did this by making mica behind the square window. You fold this in half again. You can use anything as shaking material. I used some Picket Fence here and combines it with micro beads.

After that I started with the cow and the pig. I colored both of these with distress inks. With the cow you don’t have to add his feet, tale and all his marks as it won’t show.

Now it’s time to finish the pages. The cow can go in the spot on the left and the pig on the other page. Behind the pig I added another background. I used the earth background die (1895) for this.

At the end I stamped a sentiment on both pages to complete it.

Hopefully you like this page as much as I do! See you next time!

Make A Wish Mini Slimline Card

May 8, 2022

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. With the weather warming there is a lot of squirrels in my yard in the trees, grass and crossing on the fences. It gave me the inspiration for my card. 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 a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Diecut Adventure Edges (cloud) using a scrap piece of Cardstock to use as a stencil. Place the diecut on the card front and apply ink to the edge. I used Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass. Move the diecut down and repeat until the end.

Step 3 – Diecut Slimline Adventure Edges (fence) using Kraft Cardstock and (grass) using Green Cardstock. Add some inks in brown to the fence and adhere to card front using Foam Tape. Stamp Once Upon A Time Sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink to the middle of the grass diecut. Adhere to card over the fence using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 4 – Diecut Squirrel using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Color in using any medium of your choice. I used Copics. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue except for the arm and adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 5 – Diecut Farm Accessories (sunflower and stem) using various colors of Cardstock. Assemble and adhere with the Squirrel’s arm using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 6 – Diecut Once Upon A Time Accessories (cloud) using White Soft Finish and (sun) using yellow Cardstock. Adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue for the sun and Foam Tape for the cloud.

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

Hippos, Monkeys and Florals

May 6, 2022

Karen here today. I love mixing the different collections from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Somehow, the very different styles of the designers all fits together. Today, I mixed up a couple of Joset’s characters with a floral from Anita. I love the result in these multi-purpose cards (that I plan to use for Momma’s Day!).

I used the Florals 18 on both of my cards cut with 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. On this card, I colored the flower with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide with some Rustic Wilderness for the stem. The hippo is cut from a light grey cardstock and I added just a touch of Hickory Smoke to the edges with a wee bit of Kitsch Flamingo for the cheeks. The inner part of the ears and the eyes are colored with Copic markers. I loved that fun inky looking paper so much that I just had to make a second card.

And so I just had to make a monkey. He is cut with brown and kraft cardstock with just a wee touch of Kitsch Flamingo for the cheeks. I colored this flower with Wilted Violet. I added a twine bow just to add a bit of texture.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Joset Designs Silk Microfine Glitter Soft Finish Cardstock

Hakuna Matata

May 5, 2022

Hii everyone! Here Lisanne and back with a new blogpost. This blogpost will be a short post but I realy like the result.

First I made the cute Giraffe with Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink. The little spots are diecut with Double Sided Adhesive at the back.

Then the background. I think it was time to use the Silk Microfine Glitter. For this card I want to create a jungle scene. So I used the Leaf background. For the base I used Soft Finish Cardstock and Double Sided Adhesive at the top so I can put Anitque Gold glitter at it.

The leaf is colored with Distress Ink.

The next step is adhere the Giraffe at the back ground. As you can see I made Jungle leaves at the top of the card. The left corner is realy empty so I decided to make the party lanterns, make a leave and a banner with Hakuna Matata at it.

So this was my short post about this card, but I hope you liked it. Thankyou for reading and hopefully see you soon.

Kind regards Lisanne

Mini Book with Desert Blooms

May 4, 2022

Good Morning friends, it is Karan Gerber here to share a mini book project with you. This is designed using Florals 17 as well as the Mini Book Die.

I die cut the florals and leaves out on the Soft Finish cardstock then colored front and back with rusty hinge distress ink and dabbed a bit of vintage photo on the tips to add some depth.

I shaped them with my stylus and mat and curled them into this shape, I hot glued them together and then added a bit more shape to them and inserted stamens. They remind me of small desert flowers I have seen in the Grand Canyon. 

To add a bit of detail to the box, i splattered watered down acrylic paint and some ancient gold coin paint. I decided to go on the center of the leaves with a thin paint brush with gold coin paint. 
I then added some art stones to add even more detail and dimension. 

I love how this little project turned out and hope you give this a try.
