Karen here! I am loving the fun stamps designed by Sue for Elizabeth Craft Designs. They are a great pairing with the fun floral dies designed by Anita and the background dies designed by Joset. It’s so cool that all of these fun products go together so well.
To create this card, first cut an 8-1/2×11″ piece of teal cardstock in half, scored and folded it to create a card base. Add 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to the back of a piece of 90lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut it with the Floral Burst Background die. Adhere this to the cardbase. On another piece of white cardstock, stamp “Birthday Happiness” from the For You Stamps and cut it with a Stitched Rounded Rectangle die. Cut the bottom off near the bottom of the stamp. Add a pink cardstock border and adhere it to the card. Outline the stamp with a Copic BG53. Add some fun lace at the bottom of the stamp.
Next, create the flowers by die cutting the Florals 1 Die with Double Sided Adhesive and using Petal Pink Silk Microfine Glitter from the Bloom Set. Dab the edges into Versamark Ink and gold embossing powder and heat set. (Els did a fun video showing this technique, and I was super inspired. Find the video here!) Use Metallic Gold Craft Drops for the centers, and add the fun flowers to the card!
I created a second card using the Florals 4 Dies with a NEW stamp by Sue for Christmas that is COMING SOON! On this card, I used Cool Diamond and Forest Green Silk Microfine Glitter along with the Organic Triangle Background Die.
Thank you for stopping by today!
Craftily yours, Karen

Hello! Welcome! Samantha here –– January marks my birthday month! So I thought it fitting to create a fun, bright birthday card using a few of my favourite Elizabeth Craft Designs smaller dies.
Step 1: Cut pink card stock to fit an A6 card base. (Measurements: 114mm x 162mm)
Step 2: Die cut 6 squares (from pattern paper and cardstock) using the smallest Fitted Rounded Square die.
Step 3: Die cut 6 squares (from pattern paper and cardstock) using the smallest Stitched Rounded Square die.
Step 4: Using pattern paper and cardstock die cut the small cupcakes 6x.
Step 5: Assemble all the die cut pieces as shown below. Mix and match the pattern paper and cardstock as desired.
Step 6: Adhere the assembled die-cuts to your card front. Stamp the sentiment using black ink.
Step 7: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to pink cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Silver). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
Step 8: Die cut the small hearts, and adhere these to the cupcakes on your card front. Embellish the card with enamel dots and a twine bow.
(Optional: Add machine stitched details.)
Step 9: Adhere card front to an A6 card base.
I hope you enjoyed today’s fun card tutorial showing you how I like to use smaller dies. Cupcakes are the best! I certainly will be having a few real ones one my birthday to go along side my cupcake greeting card.
Hello! Samantha here – Today I’m sharing a card I created that came about simply by stamping a background stamp. I tend not to use pattern paper as much as I used to, but I do love a good versatile background stamp. Elizabeth Craft Designs have a few background stamps that I have used (a few times now) to create my own patterned paper. Once I had stamped my background the idea developed to use a masking technique to create ink blended features using Birthday Sentiments and the co-ordinating Labels 1 Die.
It’s Frances here and it’s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cutting Design Team today. As most of you know, I love pop up cards and I was super excited when I found out that we were getting a set of general pop up dies to create all sorts of fun projects. I designed a birthday card card using the new General Pop Ups die set along with a couple of other new dies that are being released this month. I don’t know about you, but I can never make too many birthday cards.
