Valentine’s Gnome

January 15, 2022

Karen here today, sharing a card that would be totally appropriate for Valentine’s Day using the adorable Gnomes Dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. This gnome is too cute!

I just love that sweet little Gnome girl. To create this card, I started by cutting an 8-1/2″x11″ sheet of 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock in half. I folded one side to create a top fold card base. I cut the other side in half and cut the Gnome pieces. The pieces that are “on top” have 101mm Double Sided Adhesive on the back to make assembly a breeze.

I used mostly Distress Inks to color the sweet Gnome. The clothes are Blueprint Sketch and Kitsch Flamingo. The hair is Mustard Seed. I used a Copic E00 for the skin, G43 for the flower center and E53 for the flower.

I adhered the patterned cardstock as in the left-hand side of the picture above before cutting it with the Fitted Rectangles on the right-hand side. I then layered it up on a 4″x5-1/4″ piece of blue cardstock. Then I put the Gnome on the card and added some gems and a sentiment from the Bear Hugs set.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

I am thinking of you

January 12, 2022

Hi everyone! It is Lisanne here.

I’m here with a new blogpost. Today I made a little card with the cute cat.

For the card I used the Fitted Hexagons dies. I used the 2 bigger ones for the base and the smallest one for the background. I put some Double Sided Adhesive at the Soft Finish Cardstock and made 5 small hexagons with it. Now I can add some Silk Microfine Glitter, Royal Teal. These hexagons are adhere at the bigger hexagon. As you can see I used one hexagon for half.

For now the background is oke so I can make the cat. I used Soft Finish Cardstock and different colors Distress Ink.

The cat is sitting at the hexagons, but I think it is a lot of white left so I used the fence from the Slimeline Adventure Edges. The fence is a little bit longer than the hexagons.

At least I made a fishtail with the sentiment ‘I am thinking of you’. This sentiment is made with the build you own sentiment stamp set. A great stamp set to create you own sentiment.

At least I add some Distress Ink at the edges of the fishtail and hexagons. Ohh and I almost forgot the Silk Microfine Glitter in the heart. This is the color sea glass.

This is my card with the cute cat from Joset. I hope you like this blogpost and get some ideas.

Thankyou for reading and see you the next time.

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

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!

Love You Chicken

January 10, 2022

Hello everyone! Jackie here again with my first post for 2022 .. with valentines day fast approaching I have a quirky ‘I love you’ card today featuring a very colourful chicken and rooster perfect for a loved one. This is a quick and easy card tutorial to follow and you can easily switch up the colours to suit.

Step One

Cut a panel of patterned paper approximately 2.25×5.25″ die cut two fancy edges using the lovely planner essentials 27 and attach these top and bottom of the panel, fix the prepared panel to the centre of a top folding 5.25×5.25″ white card blank using 1mm foam pads.

Step Two

Die cut the chicken and the rooster and build as normal, you can use what ever colours you like or make them with more realistic colours.

Step Three

Fix a white die cut heart shape to the front of the card base using 2mm foam pads then attach the chicken and rooster on top using 1mm foam pad creating a 3d look.

Step Four

Stamp out the sentiment using purple ink then quickly sprinkle with clear embossing powder before heat setting. Trim the sentiment down to a small tag shape cutting a fish tail to one end and rounding the other adding a tiny hole. Thread with twine, tie a bow then fix in place on the card front to finish.

I hope I have inspired you to make this card, you can always switch this up and add different characters from Joset’s collection.

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.

Happy 2022!

December 30, 2021

Karen here. 2020 and 2021 have been challenging and somewhat crazy years, so I’m here to post a Happy New Year card with hopes that 2022 will be looking up. The adorable Parrot is one of my favorite die sets, so I decided to highlight it for today’s post.

I love creating these fun little critters designed by Joset! It reminds me of putting together paper dolls as a child. So relaxing.

After cutting the pieces out with 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock, I put them roughly how they will be when I put them together. It helps me to try to figure out which pieces will be which colors.


I then colored the pieces with these colors of Distress Ink and put them together using some fun googly eyes.

From there, I just put it on a card. 🙂 The sentiment is part of the Cozy Days stamp set. I cut it out with a Stitched Circle and hid part of it behind the look up panel that is part of the G45 paper set I used.

Wishing you all the very happiest and healthiest New Year!

Craftily yours, Karen

Happy New Year! Card

December 29, 2021

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Happy New Year! Card.

To create my Happy New Year! Card, I’ve used a variety of dies and stamps from the Planner Essentials Collection and Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my card at home.

Step One. Die cut a 3 3/4″ Fitted Rounded Rectangle out of a piece of dotted black or plain black cardstock. Die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Rounded Rectangle out of a piece of dotted cream or plain cream cardstock. Distress the edges of both rectangles.

Step Two. Die cut a 3/4″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtail out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. From the Joyful Wishes Stamp Set, you’ll need the Happy New Year sentiment. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the sentiment and stamp on the left hand side of the fishtail. Trim the fishtail down to 2 5/8″. Distress the edges of the fishtail.

Step Three. On a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock, blend Wild Honey Distress Ink. Die cut the star seven times from the Planner Essentials 26 – Planner Pocket 3 – Tag & Toppers die out of the now coloured cardstock.

Step Four. From the Long & Tall Numbers Stamp Set, you’ll need the 2 and 0. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the 2 and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Reapply the ink to the 2 stamp and stamp on the same piece of cardstock. Repeat the previous step with the 2. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the 0 stamp and stamp onto the same piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Fussy cut the numbers out. Ink the edges of the numbers using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. Adhere the 3 1/2″ rectangle to the 3 3/4″ rectangle.

Step Six. Adhere the fishtail 3/8″ from the bottom and all the way to the right hand side of the 3 1/2″ rectangle.

Step Seven. Foam square the 2022 numbers above the fishtail as desired.

Step Eight. Adhere the seven stars as desired on the cardfront.

Step Nine. To finish the card, cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 3 3/4″ x 10″, score at 5″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Happy New Year! Card at home.

Believe in the Magic

December 28, 2021

Hi there,

It’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this delicate snowflake card.

Sadly, this is my last post for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I loved being on the Design Team and if you are looking for a great journey, you should consider to apply for a DT position on this fantastic team whenever possible. Unfortunately, the deadline for this year’s call is already over but I am sure there will be another chance soon.

Step 1: Die-Cutting

  • die cut one of the snowflakes from the Snowflakes die set – once from white cardstock and once from Pearlescent Cardstock Blue Frost
  • glue the pearlescent snowflake on top of the white one for an extra sturdy centerpiece

Step 2: Creating the Background

  • use the branches from the Spring Fling stamp set to create the background
  • apply Distress Ink (Dusty Concord, Salvaged Patina, Evergreen Bough) to the stamp and mist it with water before stamping onto a rectangular piece of watercolor paper
  • add splatters with watered-down Distress Ink Evergreen Bough
  • ink up the edges with Distress Ink Dusty Concord

Step 3: Assembly and Finishing Touches

  • add the sentiment from the Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs Christmas Time set
  • add Stickles Crystal to the snowflake

I hope you got inspired.

Take care and I hope to see you around.

Hugs,

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!
