Hii everyone! Here Lisanne and back with a new blogpost. This blogpost will be a short post but I realy like the result.
First I made the cute Giraffe with Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink. The little spots are diecut with Double Sided Adhesive at the back.
Then the background. I think it was time to use the Silk Microfine Glitter. For this card I want to create a jungle scene. So I used the Leaf background. For the base I used Soft Finish Cardstock and Double Sided Adhesive at the top so I can put Anitque Gold glitter at it.
The leaf is colored with Distress Ink.
The next step is adhere the Giraffe at the back ground. As you can see I made Jungle leaves at the top of the card. The left corner is realy empty so I decided to make the party lanterns, make a leave and a banner with Hakuna Matata at it.
So this was my short post about this card, but I hope you liked it. Thankyou for reading and hopefully see you soon.
Hello everyone, Alice here. For today’s blog post I made this cute little snowman. Here in the Netherlands there is no snow yet. Hopefully it wil come.
So this time I started working with the snowman. First I made a background with WOW! embossing powder. For this I used the color Skylight (ws231x). It is a powder with some larger shimmer pieces in it. And I love glitter so really love this one! I edited the whole background with the embossing powder.
I made a frame with the Fitted Hexagons. I used the largest die in the set and cut the hexagon in the middle of the square.
I added some snowflakes around the cut out hexagon. The snowflakes are from the Classic Christmas special kit (#K007). I decided to cut them in white to keep attention in the middle. I cute off the parts of the snowflakes that were hanging over the square.
After that I made the snowman in the middle. Colored the details with distress ink. The scarf is the same color as the embossing powder in the background (Cracked Pistachio). I added some trees behind the snowman . The trees are from the Winter Scenery set (#1926)
Finally I added a sheet of kraft paper behind the card front to finish it off.
I hope I was able to give you some inspiration today. See you next time!
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.
Hello everyone! It´s Sanna here again with my December card tutorial. I find that sparkly cards during the holiday season are the best choice – always. Therefore I have created a set of six card with the same basic idea today, just modifying the technique from one set to another just a little bit.
For the first card I used the Classic Christmas Special Kit and started with the background die. I applied Sea Glass and Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to the background and then moved on to the creating the baubles.
On the baubles I used Violet, Diva and and Bright Grape Silk Microfine Glitter in combination with Yellow. I finished the baubles with Pewter bits. After finishing the baubles I added a stamped sentiment to the card using the stamp set that comes with the Classic Christmas Special Kit. For additinal decor and texture I added some Craft Drops to the baubles.
For my second card set I used the same idea, but applied all the glitter layers directly to a sheet of Clear Double Sided Adhesive and started with Spring Peridot tone for the background. Then I applied Bright Cranberry, Peony Pink, Copper Rose and Cool Diamond tones to the baubles one after another. First doing the red layers and then adding the white tone. I stamped and fussy cut the sentiment to the card and finished everything with Craft Drops again.
While I was at it, I did a blue-red-white-silver-toned card too. It´s all the same steps, just different glitter tones.
For my last set of three cards I used the same basic idea, but on a smaller piece of paper only creating one bauble per card. I changed the glitter tones on each card to create variation and die cut the bauble with the Dotted Scalloped Circle die. These are more clean and simple in style and much faster to finish, so they are easy to do in series. The sentiment is directly stamped onto the card base with black ink.
Here are a few more in single bauble ones in various colours. I also added plenty of Craft Drops to each of these cards to bring some contrast to them and to make the images pop even more.
To give you a better idea on how I made these cards, I´ve recorded a quite a long video. Hope you get inspired and play some with Silk Microfine Glitter and the Classic Christmas Special Kit. They truly are a perfect match!
As this will be my very last guest design team post, I would like to thank Els, Joset and the whole team for having me! It´s been truly a pleasure being part of the Elizabeth Craft Designs family for so many years. I´ve enjoyed every bit of it and will continue using their products in the future too. I hope to have inspired you all throught the years. If you want to see what I´ll be upto in the future, you can follow my blog and YouTube channel.
Wishing everyone a peaceful and lovely Holiday Season and thanks for a great time!! xxx, Sanna

Hello Friends and welcome to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog. It is Karan Gerber here sharing a project with you. Today I have a mini album to share with you. I designed this using the Florals 12 on the cover along with the Indented Stitched Rectangles and Stitched Fishtails. The inside boosts a few more of my favorites and I hope you enjoy.
The papers are from Stamperia – Classic Christmas. I love the vintage feel to the images in this collection and they were perfect for photo flips throughout the album.
Inside cover and first page. I free hand drew the curves pockets on the inside front cover and used the Indented Rectangles as photo mats throughout the album.
Page 2 and 3 – Indented Rectangles used again for photo flips.
Above I used Planner Essentials 16 and created a pocket from that large tree. Photo mats will fit in there. Same with the Small Villages on page 5. Photo mats will slip in under the houses and trees on that page.
For pages 6 and 7 I used the Stitched Indented Rectangles for the front of a side pocket.
For he last page and inside back cover I used the Stitched Circles and Indented Rectangles. Lots of gold mirri paper was used throughout.
I am attaching some detail photos of the cover for you. I hope you have enjoyed my project share for you today.
Hello and Welcome! One of my favourite reason why I love playing with dies (especially background dies) is how versatile they can be. Here I’m using the Spider Web Slimline Background die angled to create an A6 card. I’m using heaps of colour to contrast it against the black spiders and the angle of the card draws you into the spiders! Here’s how I made it…
Step 1: Adhere clear double sided adhesive to the back of several coloured pieces of card stock.
Step 2: Die cut the slimline die, repeat this for the remaining coloured pieces of card stock.
TIP: To avoid wastage think of other layouts that you could use the remaining die cuts for. As you are die cutting the slimline die 5-6 times, there is potential to create many more cards!
Step 3: Remove the adhesive backing and adhere the outline of the web to an A6 card front. Next, use the negative die cuts from the other pieces of paper, remove the adhesive backing, and adhere these in place as shown in the image below.
TIP: Adhering clear double sided adhesive to the back of each card stock before die cutting, save you time (and glue)!
Step 4: Continue to do this until all the negative space has been filled. Trim any excess over lapping card stock.
Step 5: Die cute 5x spiders. Adhere clear jewelry thread (15cm long) to the back of two spiders, add a foam dot, and then adhere another spider to hide the thread on the spider.
Step 6: Take the thread and adhere it to the back of your card front as shown below. Next adhere your card front to an A6 card base.
Step 7: Stamp the sentiment, die cut and adhere to the card front. Embellish the card, with enamel dots and adhere the last spider to the card front.
As you can see below the very spooky spiders can dangle making this a very simple interactive card perfect for Halloween or anyone who loves creepy crawlies!

Good Morning Friends and welcome. It is Karan here on the blog with and today I am sharing a Christmas Card with you, it’s never to early to get a jump start on our holiday cads for those we love. I love creating my own florals and Florals 12 are fabulous to create poinsettias with.
I was excited to receive some new papers that I ordered and got started on some Christmas Cards. I used the Stitched Circles to create some different sized layers and adhered those together.
I cut two sets of the Lacey Leaves (1878) as I love using them to tuck in my floral clusters to add detail. The Florals 12, I cut four large, two medium and two small along with 8 of the leaves from the same set.
I colored the florals with aged mahogany distress ink and the leaves with peeled paint distress ink. After molding and shaping I used pollen from Dress my craft to add to my centers.
I love to add even more detail to my florals so I dabbed snow paste from Deco Art and topped off with Glitter to add that snowy look.
Thank you for dropping by, I hope you enjoy creating your Christmas cards this season with gorgeous florals from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
Hello everyone and happy Saturday! It´s Sanna Lippert here again today with my September guest design team card project share. Who does not love some sparkle in their holiday cards? Well I sure do! Thus, for today´s project I used the gorgeous new Holiday dies by Joset and created two cards. Here they are:
Here is how I created the card(s):
Step 1: Take the slimline background die and die cut a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive with it. Then remove the negative pieces.
Step 2: Next die cut a second – plain piece – of Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet in the same size like the slimline background die.
Step 3: Take a slimline card base and adhere the solid adhesive piece onto the card and carefully remove the protective layer without touching it with your fingers.
Step 4: Now place the die cut background adhesive piece on top of the first layer of adhesive, but leave the protective cover on for now.
Step 5: Pick three colours of blue-toned Silk Microfine Glitter and pour them onto the adhesive areas creating an ombré look with the colours. Wipe any residue off with a brush and polish the layer with your finger.
Step 6: Now remove the slimline background die cut piece´s protective cover and pour Silverado Silk Microfine Glitter onto the adhesive areas. Again remove any residue glitter with a brush and then polish the layer with your finger. Also save the protective cover pieces for later – you will need the for the second card.
Step 7: Stamp a sentiment onto a whipe piece of paper with two blue tones of Distress Oxide inks and then die cut it using the Fitted Circles die cut dies. Decorate with inked banners if you want. For finishing touches add a few Craft Drops to the card.
Now use the leftover protective cover from the slimline background die to create a fun, second card.
Here are the steps you need to do:
Step 1: Ink a slimline card base using two light shades of Distress Oxide blues. Then place the protective cover leftover piece on top of the inked card. Use painters tape or washi tape to hold the pieces on place while inking. Then add a darker blue shade of Distress Oxide thru the DIY stencil.
Step 2: Die cut snowflakes from a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet and adhere them onto the inked slimline card base. Pour Pewter Silk Microfine Glitter onto the adhesive stars and polish into place. Then stamp a stentiment onto carstock and die cut with banners if you want to. Adhere on place. Decorate the edges with “faux stitching” using a white gel pen. How fast and easy you can make this second card from leftover pieces of the first one!
Here are some close-ups of the finished cards. If you want to purchase the here featured Christmas special die and stamp kit, ask your local craft store or wait until it will be available at the online store. I truly adore this kit and cannot wait to create more Holiday cards with it!
I hope you enjoyed this card set tutorial! See you again next month with another card idea. xxx, Sanna
