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

February 22, 2021

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Thank You Gift Box.

To create my gift box, I’ve used dies from the Paper Flower Collection, Els van de Burgt Studio as well as stamps and dies from Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my gift box at home.

Step One. Choose a piece of patterned paper out of the Worn Wood Paper Pack. Die cut the Pizza Box from the Pizza Box die out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of the pizza box using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. From the Pizza Box Die, die cut the scalloped square out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of the square using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. From the Pizza Box Die, die cut the stitched square out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Distress the edges of the square. Ink the edges of the square using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. Choose another piece of patterned paper from the Worn Wood Paper Pack. From the Pizza Box Die, die cut the 2 1/2″ circle out of the patterned paper. Die cut the stitched circle out of a piece of kraft cardstock. Distress the edges of both circles. Ink the edges of the circles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. Die cut a 3/4″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtail out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the fishtail down to 3″. Apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the Thank You sentiment from the Build Your Own Sentiment 1 Stamp Set and stamp on the right hand side of the fishtail. Distress the edges of the fishtail. Ink the edges of the fishtail using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. From the Florals 7 die, die cut the extra large, large, medium and small flowers out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Milled Lavender Distress Ink over the entire surface of the flowers.

Step Seven. From the Florals 7 die, die cut the large leaf and medium leaf twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Forest Moss Distress Ink over the entire surface of all the leaves.

Step Eight. Assemble your box.

Step Nine. Adhere the stitched square to the scalloped square. Foam square the scalloped square to the top of the box.

Step Ten. Adhere the stitched circle to the patterned paper circle. Foam square the patterned paper circle to the middle of the stitched square.

Step Elven. Adhere the Thank You banner to the middle of the circles.

Step Twelve. Shape your leaves and flowers. Adhere the flowers together.

Step Thirteen. Adhere a medium and large leaf to the top left portion of the circles. Adhere a medium and large leaf to the bottom left side of the circles.

Step Fourteen. Adhere the flower over top of the leaves. Add a centre to your flower if you desire.

Winter Wonderland

February 19, 2021

Hello friends and welcome! It is Karan here. Today I am sharing a layout with you. Hubby has been up north tending to our build and sent me a couple photos. I really wanted to scrapbook them so I came up with this.

I began by giving the main paper a trim down to 11.75 x 11.75 and I white washed it with paper paste mixed with a bit of gesso.

I die cut the fitted rectangles in the largest side and then cut three frames from this chipboard to give the frame extra strength. I then added gesso to the frame, added dabs of Allegro Indiano paint and dabbed that with Paper Texture paste. The result is amazing!

I die cut 8 large florals from florals 7, and 8 medium using the Soft Finish Cardstock and colored with Speckled Egg distress ink in the middle. I also colored the foam bud to match.

Sfter shaping and adding the stamens, I added snow paste to the flowers.

The leaves I got a great texture on them by adding a bit more shaping to the tips of the leaves. I colored these with Vintage Photo and Speckled Egg distress ink. I love how they turned out.

I really wanted to frame the photo of our driveway up north so I set the flowers in corners of the frame.

I hope you enjoyed my inspiration today. I would love to see your take on your winter photos. 

Happy Scrapping!

Celebrate Card

January 29, 2021

It is Karan here to share a project with you and today I am sharing a card i designed using the new Volume II Floral die collection

The card measures 6.5 in. x 7 in. its final measurement, cut papers to fit that size

These dies are amazing to work with, cut like butter and using the Soft Petal cardstock to cut color and mold these flowers make it super easy to create any flower from the collection

To start off with we will need to cut three sets of each die from the soft petal cardstock and then being to color.  For the flowers, color the outside side of the flowers using Red Geranium Archival Ink adding Leaf Green in the middle. 

I cut some smaller flowers from Florals 7 and left them white adding a small pale yellow stamen to the center.

for the Leaves, i used Leaf Green Archival Ink and colored them leaving a bit of white for highlight

The square in the center of the card, i placed a square of adhesive ( 5×5 ) and covered it with cool Diamond Glitter making sure i burnished after shaking off the excess glitter. After matting this on white cardstock i colored some seam binding and wrapped it around the card. 

I inserted some stamens in the smaller flowers coloring them with Leaf green

I created two roses from and two smaller flowers to add more dimension to my card.
I cut out a stitched fishtail on white cardstock using the second to smallest die and then stamped a sentiment using black archival ink.. 
and here is my final project

Good morning!
I just adore these new flower dies – they are full and fabulous and very versatile!
I decided to create a beach layout of our boys when they were younger as I am longing for some warmer weather!

To create this layout:
Step 1 – Take your favorite ECD paper – I used a sheet from the Worn Wood paper pack – and cover both sides with clear gesso and heat set or allow to dry
Step 2 – Use texture paste and your favorite ECD stencil along the right side of your layout – I used a stencil from the Summer Journal Special
Step 3 – Die cut, ink and assemble 17 flowers – I used the new flower dies that will be available soon! They are so awesome!

Step 4 – die cut, ink and assemble as many branches/stems/leaves as you wish

Step 5 – stamp the title – I used the pieces of life stamp

Step 6 – Add seed beads and art stones and assemble as shown!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
