Oh Happy Day! Card

July 26, 2021

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Oh Happy Day! Card.

To create my card, I’ve mixed new and older dies from the Paper Flower Collection as well as dies from Joset Designs and stamps from the Planner Essentials Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my card at home.

Step One. Choose a piece of nature inspired patterned paper and die cut a 4″ Stitched Indented Rectangle. Die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Indented Rectangle out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Distress the edges of both pieces. Ink the edges of both pieces using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut a 3 3/4″ Fitted Indented Rectangle out of a piece of book page. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. From the Pizza Box Die, you’ll need the large plain circle and the nesting stitched circle. Die cut the large plain circle out of a piece of book page. Die cut the stitched circle out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. From the Planner Essentials – Pieces of Life 4 – Retro Stamp Set, you’ll need the Oh Happy Day! sentiment. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the sentiment and stamp in the middle of the stitched circle. Distress the edges of both circles. Ink the edges of both circles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. Die cut the Lacy Leaves twice out of a piece of Rose Gold Foil Paper.

Step Five. Next, you’ll need the Florals 11 die. Die cut the leaves three times out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the flower centres three times out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. You’ll need a total of two small centres and three medium centres. Die cut the large flower three times, the medium flower five times and the small flower five times out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of all three leaves. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Dried Marigold Distress Ink over the entire surface of all the flowers. Shape the leaves and flowers as desired.

Step Six. Adhere the 3 3/4″ rectangle to the 4″ rectangle. Foam square the 3 1/2″ rectangle to the 3 3/4″ rectangle.

Step Seven. Adhere the stitched circle to the plain circle. Foam square the plain circle 1/2″ from the left and 1″ from the top of the 3 1/2″ rectangle.

Step Eight. Adhere the flowers together. You will have a total of three – three layered flowers and two – two layered flowers. Make sure to adhere a centre in each flower.

Step Nine. Adhere a lacy leaf and plain green leaf in the top left side of the circle as desired. Adhere the two – two layered flowers in the top left side of the circle, making sure they look like they are apart of the leaves.

Step Ten. Adhere the remaining lacy leaf to the bottom right side of the circle as desired. Adhere a green leaf in the bottom left side of the circle and top right side of the circle. Adhere the remaining three – three layered flowers in the bottom right side of the circle, making sure they look like they are apart of the leaves.

Step Eleven. Cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4″ x 10 1/2″, score at 5 1/4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

In Sympathy

April 21, 2021

Hi There! Karen here today posting a sympathy card I’ve had to make for a boss of mine who lost her father. What a sad time for her, and I wanted to be able to send a card to let her know I care. Elizabeth Craft Designs has gorgeous products to help make all kinds of card, like the florals I used today.

To create this card, I started by cutting a sheet of light teal card stock to 4-1/4″x8-1/2″ and folded it in half to make the cardbase. I used a piece of 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock for the card front. I smushed some Broken China and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink on my craft mat and swirled around the cardstock to create the background effect. I then cut it with the Stitched Rounded Rectangle Dies.

I added some ribbon and lace. I also cut a Dotted Stitched Circle die out of the light teal and stamped a sentiment from the General Sentiments set and cut it with a Fitted Circles die. I adhered the circles offset just because I think it adds some interest.

Next, I die cut flowers, branches and leaves using the Florals 5 dies and the Branches & Leaves dies. I colored them with Distress Inks in Broken China, Picked Raspberry, Bundled Sage and Mowed Lawn.

I turned them over, spritzed the back very lightly with water, and shaped them. This particular set is pretty easy to shape since you can just run the stylus down the petals.

The flowers are so pretty even if you aren’t an expert at coloring (like me!). I then adhered the flowers to the card and added some stamens that I’d found on Amazon. The card was finished with a few accent half-pearls.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today.

Craftily yours, Karen

The Good Life – Seed Packet Mini Album

March 22, 2021

Hello Friends and welcome! It is Karan here to share a project I designed using the new Sidekick Release. For those who know how much I love albums, I also love to create mini albums too. 

This one is designed using the Seed Packet Die from Sidekick Essentials 16. 

To begin with I cut the seed pack out five times using paper from 49 and Market. I cut vellum to go on the inside of the packet for the window. I cut out extras thinking I might make the album larger but ended up going with 5 packets instead of 8.

Then I assembled them.

I then cut the side panel from the same sidekick set and created the pages and continued to decorate them. I love tags and cut out a tag for each page just as an added layer and photo mat for some of my photos. This tag was cut from Planner Essentials 2, which I also cut to go inside each opening of the Seed Packet page. I am going to share images from this little mini and then add the dies I used below. Hope you enjoy this mini project.

And then details for the cover:

I cut doubles for the large floral and the medium size floral for the cover, two sets of leaves and then I used the skeleton leaf from the Sidekick Essential 16 set. Ii love how the florals shape so beautifully.

I hope that I inspired you to create a mini album using this Seed Pocket Set. It makes a perfect little mini album. 

Until Next time

Happy Scrapping!

Alcohol Ink Cards

February 26, 2021

Karen here today. I’ve seen quite a number of people playing with alcohol inks lately, so I decided to pull mine out. I’d forgotten how fun they are and how versatile the backgrounds are to use. Today’s post features two backgrounds I created and four cards using different designer product lines here at Elizabeth Craft Designs.

First thing I did was to create these two gorgeous backgrounds by dropping various colors of alcohol ink on a couple sheets of Yupo paper. I then moved it around with a straw and droppered on some rubbing alcohol.

I cut two strips of the blue background for this card that is matted on a card base and card front made from 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. I created an adorable Sea Turtle (designed by Joset) to put on the card and added some dark blue cardstock, washi tape and blue half pearls. The turtle is colored with Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn, Pine Needles, and Vintage Photo with Mermaid Lagoon bubbles. The sentiment is from the Splish Splash Sentiment stamps.

With the other piece of the blue background I added it crooked to this Christmas card. The beautiful girl image is designed by Charlene & Ilse and is from the Oh the Joy of Christmas stamps (as is the sentiment). I colored the girl with Copic markers

  • Clothes: B12, B14, B16, C1, C3
  • Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
  • Lips: E4, E93
  • Hair: E21, E23, E25
  • Eyes: YG03, YG17

I again added some blue cardstock as well as some diamond dots and some lace.

Next, I used a Fitted Circle die cut of the purple ink background to create this card with the Florals 4 set designed by Anita. How pretty are these flowers with just a smidge of Wilted Violet Distress Ink in the centers!?! The leaves are colored with Peeled Paint and the Blooming Branches leaves (that I cut in many pieces for “filler”) is colored with Mowed Lawn. The centers of the flowers are some stamen I got on Amazon. The card base is again 90 lb White Soft finish cardstock, topped with a Fitted Rounded Rectangle die cut matted on purple cardstock.

Last but not least, I created this card using the Celebrate stamps from Sue Smith. I heat embossed the sentiment using ranger gold embossing powder and added a couple hearts (also from the Celebrate Set) that I colored with green and purple markers. The card front is cut with a Stitched Indented Rectangle die.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen
