It’s the Most Wonderful Time of Year

September 12, 2016


Autumn is such a wonderful time of year with all the beautiful Fall colors! It is that time of year we love to decorate our porches and yards with beautiful chrysanthemums. This is Selma today and I have designed a card using many of the colors we see this time of year. The flowers were created with Susan’s Garden Notes Chrysanthemum dies. Other dies used are the Susan’s Garden – Garden Patch Woodland Leaves, Leafy Branch, Berry Branch, and the new Els van de Burgt Studio Entwined Circles, Joset Designs Birds, and Winter Sentiments Clear Stamp Set. Here is how I created this card.

Love at Home Birds Accordion Card

September 6, 2016

Full Card

Mary here to share a fairly easy rectangle accordion card. The new Birds and Birdhouse dies from Joset Designs are super cute. They come with winter accessories but I decided to use them for a summer look, with fluffy clouds in the background and bright colors. The birds may look like they are kissing but they are really just dancing beak to beak. Continue Reading

Merry Christmas Birds

September 1, 2016


Hi everyone, 

It’s my turn to post a tutorial on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today. With Christmas getting closer (116 days), I decided to create another Christmas card using a few of the new dies that were released in August. 

I have created a fun background using one of the rectangles from the Stitched Rectangles die set using red and green which are very traditional Christmas colors. The background idea can be used for any ocassion just by changing the colors used for the rectangles. I used the second smallest die for my card, but it would also be fun using the smallest rectangle for even more rows of color.

A Way With Words, New ‘Merci’ Die

December 18, 2015

Hello, it’s Diana and I am so excited to share a card with you on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog! I love clean and simple cards and the new A Way with Words dies by Suzanne Cannon are just perfect for them. With such beautiful lettering and elegant flourishes, you just don’t need much more to make a stunning card. Here are some quick and easy steps to recreating my “Merci” card:


  1. Die cut A Way With Words “Merci” out of white card stock 3 times and glue the stack together.
  2. Sponge a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8 inch rectangle of white card stock in one corner with Distress Inks.
  3. Splatter with water just a bit.
  4. Let dry and then adhere the Merci stack.
  5. Die cut the base of the bird (silhouette shape) from cardstock sponged in the same colors.
  6. Die cut the top of the bird (decorative overlay) in white card and adhere to the colored base.
  7. Pop up the bird next to the Merci.
  8. Punch opposite corners with a corner rounder.
  9. Use foam tape to pop up layer on white card base.
  10. Tip: There are now 4 ways to express gratitude with A Way With Words dies: Merci, Danke, Thanks (1 die with flourishes and initial cap) and thank you (2 dies with flourishes, lower case).
