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

Let’s party

July 7, 2022

Hii all! It’s time for a new blogpost with the newest dies from Joset. What a fun collection for such a fun cards. Today I want to share this planner page. The monsters are having a party in the castle.

I started with making a background at the Mason Jar. I did this with Distress Oxide Ink Salvaged Patina and Uncharted Mariner. I put some ink at my glass mat used the spray bottle and dipped the paper in the ink. Between every layer you need to dry it with the heattool so you can make layers. If you don’t the ink will mix.

This technique is a funny way to make backgrounds. I did this also with the lit from the jar.

Then I made the Castle from the Once upon a time collection. I coloured this with Distress Oxide Ink Hickory Smoke and stamped with CS185 some stones. Later I made lines at the windows so you can see them better.

Now it is time to adding the monsters. I used 1 monster, wings from another monster and the hands from monster 1. They are watching us, you can feel that isn’t it hihi.

I adhere the castle at the background and adhere the top of the jar at the castle. The castle is a little bit larger than the jar. So the pieces that are out of the bottle are trimmed.

I thought this page need more dimension so I adhere the bats and the boiler at the jar. These are from the Halloween Accessoires. At the boiler I stamped the sentiment ‘Let’s party’ from the new stamp set. Oh and at least the reinforcements.

I’ll hope you like this blogpost. Soon I will share more creations with the monsters. So I will see you soon! Bye bye!

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

Happy Birthday

May 18, 2022

Good Morning Friends today i have a card to share with you designed using the Volume 4 Florals Release using Florals 15. 

Cutting the florals out using Soft finished cardstock, i colored them with saltwater Taffy Distress ink and the leaves with Peeled Paint

Shaping them using my shaping mat, i added some stamens to the center.  Then lightly added some snow paste on top to add more detail.

To create the dress i took a 5.75 x 12 inch piece of patterned paper and scored every 1/2 inch. Making sure to fold so that the ends were able to be folded inward. I free hand drew the top of the dress to create a tank style top and wrapped gold thread and colored seam binding to coordinate with the card. 

Thank you for dropping by today, I hope i have inspired you to create some dress cards of your own.

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

You’re So Cute

April 22, 2022

Karen here today. I’m sharing a couple cards I made with the same sketch but different products from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Today I used the adorably cute Elephant and the Florals 12 to make two very different cards!

How cute is that Elephant! And so easy to put together. I used grayish brown and beige cardstock to cut the pieces and colored his eyes with a Copic C7. I also added a little blush for the cheeks with distress ink in Kitsch Flamingo. To create the card front, I just cut a piece of 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock at 4-1/4×5-1/2″ and taped a triangle of the patterned blue paper to it, and I then cut that with a stitched rectangle die. The sentiment is from the Furrever Friends set.

Love these beautiful flowers from the Florals 12 set. They were cut with the 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock and then colored with DIstress Oxides in Salty Ocean and Scattered Straw. I colored, then dampened with water, and then shaped them.

Yes, it’s never too soon to start making Christmas Cards! I used the Cute Winter Sentiments on this one!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Enjoy the Little Things

April 20, 2022

Hello and welcome back! It is Karan Gerber here today sharing a project with you designed using some of the new Florals Volume 4 Dies to create this stunning Floral Bucket Frame. 

I began by cutting out the frame die four times to create the frame. For this projectI did not cut it down and the overall measurement of this project is 8.5″ x 8.5″ with the inside frame pattern paper measurement being 7.5″ x 7.5″.

I colored the Florals with Kitsch Flamingo and a mix of antique linen

I colored the leaves with Peeled paint Distress Ink. I then turned the florals and leaves over lightly misted with water and began shaping. I used stamens from Dress My Crafts to add the detail in the center of these florals. I cut the bucket out from one of the coordinating papers from the collection pack.

It is a beautiful floral framed project and I love how it turned out.

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
