Have a roaring birthday!

May 24, 2023

Hii everyone,

It is time for a new blogpost from me, Lisanne. Today it is a birthday card for the daughter of my neighbor’s . It is her first birtday.

First I made the head of the animals and the safari jeep. I only need the heads because that is enough for the window. I used Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink to make these elements.

And if you adhere these elements together you will get a cute Safari Jeep.

As base I made the Mason Jar with paper from Reminiscene The Book 5. I used the Safari saying stamps for the background.

For the front I cut out the window of the jar and made a grass line in it. As you can see it trimmed this in two pieces other wise I didn’t have enough. But you don’t see that later because I adhere the jeep over that part.

At the top I made some jungle leaves.

I adhere the Safari Jeep.

I adhere the background behind the mason jar and made a small jar with the sentiment ‘have a roaring birthday’.

At least I put the name of the girl at the jeep.

So I hope you like this post about this birthday card. Thankyou for visiting and see you soon!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Dashboard page February

April 19, 2023

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all oke and ready for some new inspiration. Today I share my dashboard page for February. Yes, I know I’m a little bit behind haha. But it’s oke I will work that out.

So I started with the Planner Essentials 2 dies, paper from Reminiscene the book 5, a planner stencil and some wax. I made a shimmer background with the wax and stencil and I like it.

After that I made a little lay out with the tag and hearts. The hearts are from Planner Essentials 57 heart overlay. Also the yellow hearts are from this dies.

At the left corner I added some cut outs from the book 5. I also added the month ‘ February’.

At least I made the cow with Soft Finisch Cardstock en Distress Ink. I think the cow is a cute one! Oh and ofcourse I adhere the reinforcements.

I hope you enjoy this post and got some new ideas. Thankyou for visiting.

Kind regards Lisanne

Love grows here

February 17, 2023

Hi everyone! It is Lisanne here today with a new blogpost. It is a few days ago when it was 14 february but I think loving someone can be at any day.

Let’s start with the background I made at the Fitted Rounded Rectangle. I used a stencil from the Planner Stencils 1 and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide. I also inked the edged and make some lines at the background.

After that I made all the elements for this card. I started with the hay ride. Everything is inked with Distress Ink at the Soft Finish Cardstock.

I made the scarecrow as a boy and a girl. For the girl I used hair from the Holiday Elf Hers.

When I adhere the Hay ride at the card I missed something. I added some hay at the Hay ride.

The two scarecrows are in the car and I think they like each other.

At least I added a fishtail with the sentiment ‘love grows here’.

I hope that you like this cute card with the two scarecrows who fall in love with each other.

Thankyou for visiting and see you soon!

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

Enjoy today

January 20, 2023

Hi all! I’m here with a page in my little book which I made last year. It is a project with small pages because I used the Arrow Insert Dies. Great for a little book!

If you use the Arrow Insert dies you get a page. But if you trim this in half you can make a lot of different combinations. First I stamped at the open arrow with CS215, just lightly.

At the back of the open arrow I made a little scene with the Slimline Adventure Edges and the Ducks. I adhere this at with some double sided adhesive.

At the tab on top I did some stamping ‘enjoy today’. Now it is time to make it into a shake card.

At the back I put some double sided adhesive at all the sides and adhere acetate. After that I need to put some double sided adhesive again at the acetate. Now you need the do this against each other so the shaker material can’t fall out.

I also adher a daffodil on top of the page and of course a reinforcer from the third set.

It is a short post but I hope you liked it.

Thankyou for visiting!

See you soon!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Hello life

January 6, 2023

Hi all! It’s Lisanne here with my first blogpost for this year. I start this year with a new weekly planner page. I will make a page of every week and when I have a busy week I can always make more pages later. Every month I start with a month page and that is the page I want to share with you today.

I started with the Planner Essentials 1 and paper from Reminiscene the book 5. I also used the prompts and for this month it is Vintage. In this page you see a lot of vintage in the colors I’m using.

The next step is making a label with a stencil, ink and a reinforcer. I also used a stencil using a die from File Folder Set 2. Before I folded everything together I used the same stencil twice. The first layer is inked and for the next layer I put the same stencil a little bit different with a little bit more ink. In this piece I put the word ‘January’ and a little tab.

To fill the page, I used the Library Pocket Filler Cards. The paper is also from Reminiscene book 5. One is light Brown and one is dark brown. At the light brown card I did some stamping with CS212. Just play with stamping light and dark. In one tab I stamped ‘Hello Life’ from CS252.

Now I started to adhere everything together. First the dark brown Library Card with on top the label. You can see I made 2023 with some branches. I also adhere the reinforcements because I will adhere straight to the holes.

The next layer is the light brown card with the stamping. Now you can see why I did the reinforcers before I adhere this part.

At least I made the cute Squirrel with some flower. I adhere the part with the month January and some branches and flowers. I’m happy with the first month page of this year.

The last close-up picture from the cute Squirrel!

Thank you all for visiting and see you next time!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Here comes Santa Claus

December 23, 2022

Hi all! I’ll hope you all doing fine and almost ready for Christmas. Today you can read my last blogpost for this year. It is a little bit Christmas but also a little bit winter.

This card is a slimline card with some moving parts. For the base you need the dotted background. The top is inked with Distress Oxide Ink Tumbled Glass.At the bottom I die-cut the Slimline slider.

I want to let the ice with the pinguin move so I need 2 circles at the back and some foam tape. I will show you that in the next picture.

Now you can see the circles with foam tape. The foam tape makes it easier to move. Before you adhere the ice you need to be carefull with the bottom. You need to look at the lowest place.

After that I made a bigger card as background. Before you adhere this, take a look at the next picture because we need again some foam tape now.

You put some foam tape at the sides but also in the middle. Again make sure to watch if the circles don’t hit the foam tape otherwise the slider don’t work.

Now you can adhere the bigger card. And is it time to decorate.

I made a pinguin who made a campfire and hanging his stocking at the board. Will Santa comes to his place?

I hope you like this card and have an idea of making these cute slider cards.

Thank you for visiting and see you next year!

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

Merry Christmas with Karan

December 7, 2022

Hi Creative friends and welcome back to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog.

I am making a few changes in my Design Team commitments heading into 2023, one of those changes I am making is with Elizabeth Craft Designs. I have decided its time for me to say farewell, so i am sharing my last project with you for Elizabeth Craft Designs. 

I decided to keep it simple and I designed a Christmas card using Florals 12, which has been a favorite of mine to create with. I cut 8 large florals 12 and two of the small flowers, and 8 leaves, 

The Merry Christmas title is from an older EC Die (1576 Words 5-Winter Wishes) 

I coloured them with aged mahogany, and the leaves with peeled paint, pretty much my stand by colours for florals 12 when creating poinsettias. 

I hope you enjoy my last project with Elizabeth Craft Designs and want to wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas, and a safe, happy and prosperous New Year!

Thank you for dropping by today and for following me along the past two years as i shared my projects with you.

Jellie’s Christmas house

November 28, 2022

Hii all, it is almost the best time of the year in my opinion. If I aks my nephew he would say the same. The card that I’m sharing with you today is a birthday card for him. He love his cat Jellie and like Christmas. That’s for me 2 good things to combine.

For this card I use the beautiful Christmas Lives Here and some Soft Finish Cardstock for the cat.

I started with a stitched hexagon as base.

Instead of a doghouse I made a cat house. When you use this dies you only made the green part. I adhere some black paper so it looks more like a closed house.

After that I made the red parts and made some Christmas lights. The ligths are a dies from de Holiday Bird House. It brings me into the Christmas mood. I made some sparkling Christmas lights with the Silk Microfine Glitter. Just die-cut the lights with some double sided adhesive at the top. That is why I can put some glitter at it and rub it to the tape.

Now the cat is still missing. My nephew have a cat named Jellie. He is black with white and some green/yellow eyes. He is wearing a party hat from the party time dies.

When I finished everything the background was empty. It was a little late when I think about making a background with a stencil. So I did it very carefully at the sides.

I hope you like this blogpost and get some ideas.

Thankyou for visiting and see you next time!

Kind regards Lisanne

Label box

October 27, 2022

Hii all!

I’m here today with a new blogpost. I am very excited about this project because I can use a lot of different things. I used a Vignette Box from Tim Holtz filled with dies from Esther and Joset. It is such a fun project to fill.

As you can see I used a lot of different base dies. I used the cutting tags from the paperpad Christmas Lives here, Planner Essentials 42 (shapes, frames and words), the Library Pocket Filler Cards and the Nested Tags from Joset (1998). With these dies you can make a lot of different combinations. So let’s start with the first one.

I used the paper from Christmas Lives Here to start with. For this card I also used some corrugated cardboard and tear that. At the back I used a stencil with some icicle texture paste. Adhere the corrugated cardboard, a label and some holly with berries.

At the back I only made the lantern from the Lantern Page.

For the next card I stamped with the Peace and Joy stamp, Versamark and some red Embossing Powder. It is not that tight, but I like this for now. At the right I made a little tab.

At the back I used the stamp Crayons with Journaling Cards and another Holly with berries.

The next card is made with the Frames from Planner Essentials 42. Just die-cutting the full card with the beautiful bird and added a frame.

At the back of the frame I did some stamping, used an older label and added some tab behind the label. I also used the small trees from the Sidekick Essentials. And ofcourse some sparkling.

For the next card I started with some stencil and Ink for the background, added a part of the tree page and a small Nutcracker.

And at the back also some stamping with embossingpowder, some gifts and a stamped paperclip. I really love to make combinations with dies and stamps.

And last but not least I made these two tags with Santa and Mrs. Santa.

I think I told you everything for now haha. It is a long post this time, but I had some much fun making and sharing this. Below this post you can see all the used products.

Thankyou for visiting!

Kind regards

Sweet as hot chocolate

October 21, 2022

Hii everyone! It is finaly time to share my cards with you using the new Cozy and Warm Collection from Joset. It is such a wonderfull collection in my opinion. I have a lot of ideas with this collection.

So for today I want to share a hot chocolate tag with you. I like to make cards with Distress Ink, but today I used some texture paste, sprays and Oxide Inks.

I started with the biggest tag and made a texture with the Planner Essentials Stencil 1 and Distress Structure paste.

Then the fun part, adding some Distress Mica Spray: ‘Snow Flurries and Frosted Juniper’. Just spraying and adding a little bit of water. And ofcourse drying with a heat tool.

After that I inked the edges with Distress Ground Espresso. Some spots are a little bit more than the edges hihi. The next step is making the mug with hot chocolate, cinnamon and coffee beans. I used Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Oxide Ink to colour everything.

The last step is making the fishtail with a sentiment from the new stamps. I’ll hope you like this idea. It is a realy nice way to make gift tags in the same way but with different colours.

I think I told everything about this tag. Thankyou for visiting and see you soon!

Kind Regards,

Lisanne Geerdink
