My Eyes on You

July 15, 2022

Karen here with a super fun creation using dies from the new monster designs by Joset. These monsters are SO fun, and the sentiments to go with them are just perfect!

I die cut the Birthday Flip Card from 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. The die cuts and scores in all the right places to make the rest of the card so easy to make. The green flower cardstock are also cut with dies that are part of the set, and I just taped them to some pink cardstock and fussy cut a tiny edge.

All of the eyes are different eyes from the monsters. I cut them with 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock and colored the “black” in with a very dark grey copic. To make them easy to apply, I cut them all out with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive. I sometimes added a white or black gel pen dot to the middles of the eyes.

on the inside of the flip, I put one of the Monster 1s. How cute is he? The sentiment from the new Monster Hugs set, I thought, was perfect with this card!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

You’re So Cute

April 22, 2022

Karen here today. I’m sharing a couple cards I made with the same sketch but different products from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Today I used the adorably cute Elephant and the Florals 12 to make two very different cards!

How cute is that Elephant! And so easy to put together. I used grayish brown and beige cardstock to cut the pieces and colored his eyes with a Copic C7. I also added a little blush for the cheeks with distress ink in Kitsch Flamingo. To create the card front, I just cut a piece of 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock at 4-1/4×5-1/2″ and taped a triangle of the patterned blue paper to it, and I then cut that with a stitched rectangle die. The sentiment is from the Furrever Friends set.

Love these beautiful flowers from the Florals 12 set. They were cut with the 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock and then colored with DIstress Oxides in Salty Ocean and Scattered Straw. I colored, then dampened with water, and then shaped them.

Yes, it’s never too soon to start making Christmas Cards! I used the Cute Winter Sentiments on this one!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Pigs and Flowers

April 8, 2022

Karen here today. Only here at Elizabeth Craft Designs can one find such amazing die sets when their tastes run from pigs to flowers! Today, I used the same basic sketch to make a card with each!

I love the Pig die set! How cute is this?! I also used a Stitched Circle Die and the Life is Better on the Farm Sentiment. In the background is a die cut of Leave the Doily!

On this one, I used the Florals 1 set, and I added some greenery with the Ferns set.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Fun with Daffodils

February 25, 2022

Karen here today. Today, I am sharing a couple Sidekick sized scrapbook pages as well as a card. I decided to use one of Joset’s newest designs, the Daffodil, as embellishments on both.

First up today is a card I made using the Daffodils die. I cut the petals and stems from patterned cardstock and green cardstock respectively. Then I layered them up on a Stitched Hexagon. I cut another smaller sized hexagon out of the middle of it. This piece was layered up on a Stitched Rectangle die, cut from 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock, over a piece of the yellow patterned paper. The cardbase is also cut from 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. I added a sentiment, some diamond dots and some twine!

Next I chronicled a fun date my guy and I had to see the Eagles concert. I love the fun and funky paper and felt like the Daffodils just added more fun. I used Sidekick Essentials 19 as the page base and added a couple of Stitched Circle die cuts and a fun little pocket cut from dies in the Sidekick Essentials 14 set. I love the flower reinforcement found in the 19 set as well as the little squares that are found in one of the Reinforcement Variety Packs. The letters were cut from dies in the Planner Essentials 23 set.

On the back of the page, I added another Daffodil, some pictures and another Stitched Circle (as well as just a bit of journaling!)

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Valentine’s Gnome

January 15, 2022

Karen here today, sharing a card that would be totally appropriate for Valentine’s Day using the adorable Gnomes Dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. This gnome is too cute!

I just love that sweet little Gnome girl. To create this card, I started by cutting an 8-1/2″x11″ sheet of 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock in half. I folded one side to create a top fold card base. I cut the other side in half and cut the Gnome pieces. The pieces that are “on top” have 101mm Double Sided Adhesive on the back to make assembly a breeze.

I used mostly Distress Inks to color the sweet Gnome. The clothes are Blueprint Sketch and Kitsch Flamingo. The hair is Mustard Seed. I used a Copic E00 for the skin, G43 for the flower center and E53 for the flower.

I adhered the patterned cardstock as in the left-hand side of the picture above before cutting it with the Fitted Rectangles on the right-hand side. I then layered it up on a 4″x5-1/4″ piece of blue cardstock. Then I put the Gnome on the card and added some gems and a sentiment from the Bear Hugs set.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Joyful Wishes

December 8, 2021
Hello Friends and welcome the Elizabeth Crafts Blog. Today I have a floral card to share with you, designed using some of my favorite floral dies

 
I started by die cutting leaves, and florals coloring them using Smoky Gray Versa Ink and Victorian Velvet Distress ink. The Lacy Leaf was cut from gray cards tock as was the fern from the Berries and Branches. 


i added a touch of Victorian Velvet ink to the center of the leaves just for a bit of detail 

I added some prills from my stash and dabbed a bit of snow paste on top, tucking in the lacy leaf and the fern to add more layers a few detail shots above and below.
I would love to see some of your beautiful cards designed using Florals 7, I hope you have enjoyed my card today.

What One Loves

October 10, 2021

 Good Morning Friends and welcome. It is Karan here sharing a card with you and it is designed using Florals 13.

Here is how I began creating my card. 

I started by selecting some papers and using dies from the Stitched Indented Rectangles, I love adding layers to my cards and this is a great and easy way to do that.

I then used the stitched circles and cut a sentiment, matting it in a coordinating paper and matting it on the color I used for my base

Using Soft Finish Cardstock die cutting three sets of each size as I wasn’t sure how many I would need.

Coloring the florals with Victorian Velvet and the leaves with Peeled Paint Distress Ink, I set about assembling my florals.

Assembling the card and tucking in the leaves in and around the flowers.

Here is a side view of the card and once completed I decided to add some snow paste to detail the florals and leaves, I find it gives it nice texture too. I used stamens to my centers.

I love how this turned out and I would love to see your take on Florals 13.

One Kit – Many Possibilities

September 18, 2021

Karen here today. I’m having such fun with the NEW Classic Christmas Special Kit. I made slimline cards using the included slimline die earlier, and today, I am sharing four A2 sized cards I made for Christmas using the dies.

The background die in this set is long enough to be used as background for a standard slimline die. On this first card, I backed the 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive before cutting it out. Then I adhered it to a piece of patterned paper and cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die. From there, I added the ornament, snowflake and sentiment from the set and added some ribbon and gems.

This card was a little simpler and used some stitched circles of different patterned paper to add interest. The sentiment is stamped onto a Stitched Rounded Rectangle die and then cut off on the top.

For this card, I again adhered the background die to another piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock and then cut the ornament with it. I love the texture it added to the card. The only “new” die I used on this card (i.e. not used on previous cards) is the Fitted Rounded Rectangle.

And finally, I used the rest of the piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock with the background die on it and cut it with a Fitted Rounded Rectangle. Again, I love the texture that it adds.

There are so many fun possibilities with this set! Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Sweet Farm Critters

July 29, 2021

Karen here today sharing a couple special order cards I made for my mom. She wanted a couple thank you cards, one with a sheep and one with a pig. Easy to do with the adorable farm critters here at Elizabeth Craft Designs!

Both of these critters are colored with a combination of Distress Ink and Copic Markers. The sheep has hints of Hickory Smoke Distress Ink for the “white” parts and Antique Linen face and legs. His eyes and hooves are colored with a Copic C7. I added a teeny bit of Kitsch Flamingo Distress Ink for the cheeks and R20 Copic at the nose. I used a multi-liner to draw the face. The pig is colored with Kitsch Flamingo Distress Ink and Copic C7 marker.

How sweet is that pig! I used the Stitched Rectangle die for the top rectangle and then cut the mat for it 1/4″ bigger on all sides. The card front mat is cut 4×5-1/4″ and the patterned paper is 3-3/4×5″. The word “thanks” is cut from the Words 2 – Thinking of You set. I die cut it twice with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive and stuck them together to add just a bit of dimension.

And I LoVe this sheep! I used the same card sketch to create it. On both cards, I also love the little bit of lace and baker’s twine. And, I finished both cards off with some diamond dots.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Love You – Fairy Much!

June 30, 2021

Karen here today. I am sharing a card today that I made with the Fairy 1 die. I love the sweet “Once Upon a Time” release from Joset! The sentiments that go with it are very sweet.

To create this card, I cut an 8-1/2″x11″ sheet of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock in half and folded it to create a top-fold cardbase. Then I cut a piece of pink cardstock at 4″x5-1/4″ and another piece of Soft Finish Cardstock at 3-3/4″x5″ for the card front.

I cut the pieces of the Fairy 1 dieset with 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. I usually lay them all out in order to help me figure out what needs to be colored with which colors. I then colored this sweet fairy with Copic markers as follows:

  • Skin: E000, E01, R20 (for blusher)
  • Eyes: C7
  • Mouth: R4
  • Dress and shoes: R81, R83, YG13, YG17
  • Wings: YG00
  • Hair: Y23, Y26
  • Wand: E23, Y26

I used the Once Upon a Time Sentiments and the Stitched Hexagon Dies in varying sizes. I figured out what sizes by simply laying them out. (Note that once I got the pieces all ready to lay down, I moved things around just a bit!)

In assembling the card, I added some twine wrapped around the white piece and a couple jewels near the sentiment. That’s all! Fun and easy. Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen
