Hello everyone Jackie here today, spring has arrived at last so I am sharing this cheerful fun happy spring card using a mix of dies from Joset and new dies from Annette Green.

Step One:

Trim a panel of white card to 5 x 3.75″ and ink blend in the centre using Distress Oxide – tumbled glass.

Step Two:

Stamp out the sentiment toward the bottom, here I have used Versafine Clair ink morning dew.

Step Three:

Die cut the daisies from set 2027 Stemmed Flowers then snip them apart. Add a yellow inked centre and a little green ink on the leaf ends.

Step Four:

Add the flowers to the prepared panel, glue a few flat and a few with a foam pad for texture.

Step Five:

Add two grass edges die cut from set 2022 Lace Borders, glue one directly over the stem ends then add the other just below using tiny foam pads.

Step Six:

Die cut and build the bunny using set 1929. Use pink card adding pink ink around the edges, use a black fine liner and white gel pen to add features to the bunnies face.

Step Seven:

Fix the bunny in place adding another daisy in the bunnies hands to finish.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you today using one of my favourite character dies. You will be able to purchase Annette Greens new collection Everything’s Blooming at your favourite ECD stockist.

Happy crafting – Jackie x

Sweet Easter Card

March 30, 2023

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. Easter is coming up soon, so I wanted to share with you a cute Easter card for inspiration.  


Cut and assemble the head of the bunny from the Bunny die set. Assemble the body but do not attach to the head. Cut leaf circles from the Planner Essentials Iris Shutter Add-on die set in two shades of green cardstock. Using the double leaf die set, cut darker green cardstock. Using the single leaf circle, cut a lighter green cardstock. Cut a circle from the Stitched Circles die from light blue cardstock. Cut a card base from one of the green cardstocks used for the leaves. Cut a circle from the Dotted Scalloped Circles die set. Cut a rectangle from white cardstock using the Stitched Rectangle die set. Cut a rectangle from patterned cardstock from the Fitted Rectangles die set. Cut flowers from the Easter Basket die set out of yellow cardstock and their centers from white cardstock. I used 2 of the three flowers in the set. I have cut them each 7 times. Cut the word Easter from the Planner Essentials 23 die set from the same green cardstock used for the base . Cut and stamp “Happy” on white cardstock using the Sentiments 1 stamp and die set. I like to use the negative from the die cut to create a template that I can use to place the sentiment to assist in lining up the stamp with the die cut. This step can save lots of time if making multiples.  

Using a stylus or back of a paint brush, shape the flowers that was cut from yellow cardstock and adhere together. Adhere the white centers to the middle of the flowers. 

Using the single leaf die, cut the body of the bunny. This will allow for the perfect edge to line the bunny up in the up coming steps 

Adhere the light blue circle to the double leaf circles. The interior leave allow for the circle to be glued easily.  

Adhere the single layer leaf die cut to the blue circle. Adhere the bunny body to the light blue cardstock, aligning the edge with the green leaf layer that we just glued down.  

Adhere the bunny head to the body.  

Adhere the Dotted Scallop circle towards the top of the patterned cardstock layer. At the bottom of the layer, adhere “Easter” 

Adhere the leaf layer to the center of the scalloped circle. Also adhere the “happy” sentiment the card layer 

To finish off the card, adhere the yellow flowers around the leaf circle. Attach the patterned cardstock layer to the Stitched Fitted Rectangle cardstock layer. Once completed, adhere those layers to the card base.

Lemonade cart

April 27, 2022

Hello all.. Jackie here for today’s blog post. I am so pleased that spring is finally here and we are starting to see some sunshine which has inspired me to create this sunny looking card for you today. I have used the wooden trailer – 1909 Hay Ride – to create this lemonade cart plus there are also a few bits of hand drawn fussy cutting to do. So lets get started.

Step One:

Start by die cutting all the pieces for the cart, the photo below shows all the pieces I have used. Where you can see more than one of the same piece I have doubled up and glued together to add some texture to the finished cart. You will need to die cut the same pieces to create the roof and the bottom, then use this same die to cut the three coloured panels into different coloured cardstock.

Step Two:

Continue to build the cart up. You will need to cut two thin side bars measuring approximately 1/8th x 2.75″ which will be glued either side from the base to the roof. The bunting, lemons, soda cups and signs are all fussy cut apart from the straws and sign stick (these are the waste pieces from the cart base die)

Step Three:

Ink a pale blue circle in the centre of a 5×5″ white card panel, I used distress oxide tumbled glass and a domed blending tool. Offer the cart up to the inked circle to see where the wheels will sit, then draw a few black lines with squiggles to ground the cart, fix the prepared panel to the front of a top folding turquoise card blank measuring 5.25 x 5.25″ but do not fix the cart in place yet.

Step Four:

Next die cut the bunny, you will not need the legs as you will not see them. build up the bunny as normal and add rosy cheeks using pale pink ink, I used distress ink spun sugar and a finger dauber. Draw on some whiskers and add a tiny white dot to each eye then fix the bunny in place before attaching the finished cart to the card front.

I have chosen not to add a sentiment but you could add whatever sentiment you like, this would suit quite a few different occasions. You could also switch up the design and make a number of different cart’s like sweets, hotdogs and burgers or even fresh fruit and veg.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you have found some inspiration from this design.

See you soon and happy crafting – Jackie x

Happy Easter Interactive Mini Slimline Card

April 5, 2022

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. With Easter coming up quickly I managed to squeeze in one last Easter card. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish to 7” x 6”, score at 3 1/2” and fold in half for a horizontal top fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish to 3 1/2” x 6”. Apply Inks of your choice onto a Gel Plate. I used Distress Oxide in Broken China and Cracked Pistachio. Broken China on top and Cracked on the bottom. Place the Cardstock on top of the Inked Gel Plate. Remove the Cardstock and spray some water to create some faux clouds. Diecut Adventure Edges (cloud die) on scrap cardstock to use as a stencil. Apply Unicorn White Ink on top of the panel to create clouds.

Step 3 – Diecut Pull Tab (half circle die) to the panel created in Step 2. This will create the slit to be able to pull the tab. Diecut Pull Tab (thin rectangular die) to the panel created in Step 2, making sure to align with the panel diecut. Diecut Pull Tab (T shape die) & (rectangle with slight angles at edge die) using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Diecut Pull Tab (circle with arrow). Adhere to the top of the pull tab. When assembled the panel should look like the below photo. Adhere to the card front making sure to leave space around the pull tab mechanism.

Step 4 – Stamp Spring Sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink to the right side of the card front.

Step 5 – Diecut Easter Basket (eggs, flowers and leaf stems dies) in various colors of cardstock. Adhere to card front using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 6 – Diecut Bunny various colors of Cardstock. Assemble using Kids Choice Blue. Make sure to adhere an egg to the arms of the Bunny. Adhere the Bunny to the top of the pull tab flaps.

Step 7 – Diecut Slimlne Adventure Edges using Green Cardstock. Adhere to card front using Foam Tape leaving a gap at the center where the movable egg is.

I love how it looks like the Bunny is taking an egg. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Cardmaking Joset Designs Planner Essentials Sidekick Essentials

Bunny and Cat

March 11, 2022

Karen here. Lately, I’ve been inspired creating cards to use similar colors and pieces to also scrapbook. For today’s post, I started with the adorable Bunny and made a card. Then, I just had to create a Sidekick scrapbook page.

I started by finding a card sketch on Pinterest to create this fun card with the Bunny. The Bunny is colored with Distress Inks in Tea Dye and Kitsch Flamingo. The bow is colored with Scattered Straw. The eyes and whiskers are colored with Copic C7, and the pink nose is a Copic R81. The triangles were made by using a Fitted Square die and cutting it in half and I added a couple Stitched Rounded Rectangles to the front. I added a couple Leaves and Branches die cuts at the top. With some ribbon, twine and pearls, I called this all occasion (but I’ll probably use it for Easter) card complete.

I then brought in the paper and the triangles to create this Sidekick page journaling fun times at Sacramento Rivercats games with my guy. The page base is cut from 90lb White Soft Finish Cardstock with a Sidekick Essentials 2 die. He has a cap on that is from the Hats dies. The letters are in the Planner Essentials 23 set, and I added the “cute” stamp from the Moods set (because I think my guy is awfully cute!) No page, in my opinion, is complete without reinforcements, cut here using 101mm Double Sided Adhesive and the Reinforcement Variety Packs 1 and 2.

On the back, the focus is on these pictures that include my parents and my guys daughter since we really enjoy going to the game with family and friends. I used the triangle (again cut from a Fitted Square) as a pocket and added journaling that I cut with a Fitted Rounded Square die. The …’s are also from the Moods stamps, and I added some Branches and Leaves diecuts to the triangle pocket.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Happy Bunny

March 7, 2022

Hello everyone, Alice here again! Today I would like to show you another creation. It’s been sunny here all week so I felt like getting started with colors. I just love to work with a lot of color! This time I chose the cute bunny along with the easter eggs.

Behind the bunny is a shaking area. I used very nice shaking material for this. This contains small bunny’s. I love shaker material. Have a hole box full of it. I absolutly love it when it matches the animals. This shaker material is from Picket Fence. They combine perfectly with the characters.

I put the shaking material in a transparant bag. Close this well with clear double sided adhesive tape.

To nicely hide the shaking part I used the frame the floral burst background die (1801). You punch this out twice. You use part of it as a background. The second part is made into a frame. You cute out the middle part at 0.5 cm from the edges. In between you can confirme your shaking part.

On top of this you make the floral burst background part. This way you have processed your shaking part very neatly. For this creation I die cut the background die out of yellow cardstock.

After this I started working with the bunny and the decoration. This time I made everything out of colored cardstock. I did edit the edges with ink. Normaly I color everything with ink. Bute today I wanted to use the brighter colors of cardstock. This bunny is wearing his beautiful bow again today. I made these from the same paper as the background of the whole.

The bunny is sitting comfortably in the grass. Here also some nice easter eggs and of course tasty carrots for him.

Above the bunny a colorful bow of hemp cord. These in the same color as the shaking material and the easter eggs.

Behind this part another cheerful checkered design paper. Again in the same colors. Finally made this entirely on silk finish cardstock.

This was my creation this time. I hope it makes you happy as I do.

Until next time! Lovely greets Alice Brinks

Hi Everyone,

Our Elizabeth Craft Designs Design Team have been busy throughout the month creating amazing cards using some of our newly released stamps and dies. As most of these are posted on their personal blogs, there may be cards you’ve missed. Today we have a few that we found that we thought you would like to see.

For more information about any of the cards shown below, click on the link on the Design Team member and you will be taken to the blog post for that particular card.


Valentine’s Day is in the past, but this card created by Samantha Klaebe is definitely worth a second look. Look at the clever way Samantha used the scallop edge die from the Valentines Edges die set and the heart shape from the Puzzle Heart die set. This idea can be used with many different shapes in place of the heart. Samantha also used the Love Sentiments.
