Fun with Flowers

September 21, 2020

Hi there! Karen here today. I only recently got my hands on the amazing new flowers here at Elizabeth Craft Designs. They are so much fun to play with! In my post today, I show two fun examples of cards using the new flowers.

Here’s how I created this fun card.

  • Cut a 8-1/2″x11″ piece of Soft Finish Cardstock in half length-wise and score/fold in the middle to create a top-fold card base.
  • Die cut a card front using the Stitched Rectangle Dies (Patterned orange cardstock)
  • Cut two strips of green paper at 1/2″ and 3/4″ by 5″ and add them to the left side of the card front. (I adhered mine just inside the rectangle stitching)
  • Die cut a large Fitted Circle and trim a bit from one side, and layer it over the green strips.
  • Die cut a small and medium size of Florals 1 from light yellow cardstock and ink edges with Dried Marigold Distress Ink. Die cut the leaf from the Florals 1 from light green cardstock and ink the edges with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.
  • Shape the flower and leaf. (For the flower, I use a simple foam pad with a stylus and shape in circular motions on the back-side and then “punch” into the middle on the front. I then work the flower and leave a bit with my fingers until I like the look of it.)
  • Add the flower and a sentiment to the card front.

As a fun embellishment, I put some of the White Craft Drops on a piece of “waste” release sheet from the Double Sided Adhesive. When dry, I color them with a Copic Marker, and then they can be glued onto the project – either as a flower center or just an embellishment.

The next card was made with a FuN sentiment stamp, For You.

On this card, I stamped that amazing sentiment and cut it out with Fitted Circles. In this card, I added the circles and strips before die cutting the card front, and I did not shape those fun flowers from the Florals 3 set. I think these flowers are super cute just flat as embellishments too.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

All about Flowers

September 13, 2020

Hello everyone,

Welcome to our Monthly Designers challenge! This month’s theme is all about flowers. We asked our designer to create some beautiful projects using our new Paper Flowers dies or any of our other “Floral” themed stamps. Our designers did a great job and I can’t wait to show to their beautiful work!

First project is from Annette Green who created this beautiful little box using the new Pizza Box die and the Florals 4. Love the beautiful Fall colors she picked for the flowers and leaves. For the box itself Annette used the Worn Wood paper pack. Make sure to check out Annette’s blog HERE for more info.

EK Gorman created this beautiful flower card using a collection of flowers stamps. She used the “A Field of Flowers” set and the “Patterns 1”. Love the brown and yellow color combination. For more info on how to create this card, check out EK’s Blog HERE.

Joyce Schmidt created a beautiful frame using the Florals 1 die set in combination with the Elegant Ornament die. Love these 2 together. She also used the Berry Branch and cut this one up in small pieces to decorate the flower arrangement. Joyce often shows her work in videos and on her Facebook page. Make sure to check it out HERE.

Anita Izendoor, the designer of the Paper Flower Collection joined us this month with a beautiful floral slimline card. Just like Joyce, she decided to combine the Elegant Ornament die with the Florals 1 set. Such a beautiful combination. For the background she used the Worn Wood paper pack. To see more of Anita’s beautiful work, make sure to check out her Blog HERE.

We’re so happy to have some Strawberries dies back in our collection, this time just a little bit smaller than our previous release set. Tina Guigui created this lovely slimline card. She colored the strawberries so pretty they almost look real. The “let love bloom” (Zen Sentiments set) is a perfect choice for this card. If you would like to re-create this card, make sure to check out Tina’s Blog HERE

Next card is from Sandy Diller who used the Color my Flowers clear stamp set in combination with the new Floral Birst Background die by Joset Designs. I love how she used the background die here as the front of the card. For the sentiment she used the Build Your Own Sentiments 1. For more info on how to create this beautiful card, make sure to check out Sandy’s blog HERE.

Joseph Nguyen joined us this month with this beautiful flower arrangement using a combination of dies. Joseph used the Florals 4 and colored the petals centers very lightly in blue. He followed this color scheme with a beautiful patterned background and some small blue embellishments on the berries (Berry Branch). Some extra leaves completed his card. For more inspiration, make sure to follow Joseph’s Facebook page HERE.

Katelyn Grosart created this stunning wreath using the Florals 2 and Stamen Flowers die sets. She used White Soft Finish Cardstock to cut her flowers and leaves and colored them using Distress Inks. Love the pastel colors she picked. For more info on how to create the flowers, check out Katelyn’s Blog HERE.

Last project is this cute card created by Karen Ostergard showing you how fun it is to use the flower dies as embellishments. She created a Hoppy Birthday card using the oh so cute Frog die set. For more info on how to create this card, check out Karen’s Blog post HERE.

Autumn is in the Air

August 31, 2020

Hello everyone, this is Joyce Schmidt, design team member with Elizabeth Craft Designs. I am bringing you Autumn wishes today so that you may begin to brush off the hot summer and start looking forward to the Pumpkin Spice Latte, and holidays to come. Join me today to make this fun card for Autumn using the new Fantasy Floral line coming very soon! 

I decided to do a slimline card today. The size of the card measures 81/2 X 31/2 inches. I used the Elizabeth Craft Design soft finish cardstock 110lb to create the card base because I am using it as the base layer for my stencil. I used the rocks stencil (S038) and just used a little distress ink ad a blending brush, it was perfect for this card. 

I used the soft finish card stock to die cut Elegant Ornament die (1780). Using the ink to paper transfer technique, I colored the paper brown. I then roughly applied gold embossing powder to certain areas, and heat embossed the powder. It gives it an antique finish as if it was metal. 

I die cut leaves from all 3 of the floral sets 1,2,3 and just inked them with browns, oranges, and a dash of green to give it a fall look. 

Next, I used my Elizabeth Craft Designs tweezers to add a little shape to the leaves so they would easily take on a realistic look. 

To wrap it all up I die cut the Word “Autumn” from the 4 Seasons Set (1199) and used gold foil paper with Double sided adhesive on the back and it finished the inspiration perfectly! 

I hope you will try this easy fun autumn card using the leaves from the Fantasy Floral set from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I was fun and easy to make as well as inspiring for the Fall Season. Thank you for joining me today and Happy Crafting!
