Cut all the flowers, Branches and leaves from the Soft Finish Cardstock, and color them with Ink.

Attach some of the Styrofoam balls on the branch.

Cut also the Number reinforcers from Red Cardstock and the alphabet tabs from red and white, I put some glitter on the 25 also shape the flowers and stick them together.

Cut the number reinforcers shorter and make snow dots on them. also put some prills in the flower centers and cut the image of the reindeer. Now you can decorate the card with all of these Items.

Heart Warmer

December 19, 2022

Hello everyone. Jackie here today with my last blog post for 2022, I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy crafty 2023!

Today I have kept things quite simple with a pretty inky background created using distress oxide inks and water and I have made my own stamp using the snowflake die!!

Step One:

Ink blend the whole front of a piece of A2 white card, here I have used three shades of blue ink but feel free to use which colours you prefer. Don’t worry to much about a perfect blend as we will be adding water later.

Step Two:

Die cut the snowflake into some fun foam, use at least 2mm fun foam to give a good impression. Attach the foam snowflake to an acrylic block using some double sided tape.

Step Three:

Spritz the prepared foam stamp with water then press into the inked background, push down for a few seconds then lift off the stamp. repeat all over the inked panel creating a snowflake pattern. Don’t worry if you get a few splash marks this will add to the effect.

Step Four:

Use a stitched rectangle die to cut down the background then fix the panel to the front of a top folding card blank using 3d foam pads.

Step Five:

Die cut the deer three times from white card then glue them altogether creating a sturdy topper, glue this to the card front then add a tiny red die cut heart.

Step Six:

White heat emboss the sentiment to black card before trimming down to a thin banner. Fix the sentiment in place using more 3d foam pads then add a few sequins and a splash of white craft drops to finish.

Quite a simple design today, I love the pop of red against the blue and white on this one. I hope you have been inspired to give this water/ink technic a go and I hopefully see some designs over on the family group. Happy crafting – Jackie x

Holiday Treats

November 21, 2022

Hello. Jackie here with today inspiration. I was playing with the new Warm Winter Mug die set and thought hmmmm I wonder if I could make a cupcake! and what do you know it works perfectly.

Step One

Die cut the solid mug part first, you do not need to cut the whole mug as we will only need the bottom half. Trim the handle off.

Step Two.

Lay the two fancy dies on to the solid cut piece, lift off the bottom die then run this though a die cutting machine creating the base for the cupcake. Die cut the fancy piece again into coloured card then glue on top.

Step Three.

Draw and fussy cut out a cake shape as shown in the photo, this will not need to be perfect as you will only see a small amount. Glue the cake in place behind the cup case then the cream on top.

Step Four.

Next, create the striped pattern directly on to an A2 top folding card blank. Trim a hand fall of pink striped patterned paper then starting at one diagonal end glue the first piece in place. cut a 1cm strip of card to act as a template to achieve the correct spacing, continue to glue the thin strips in place until the front is covered then cut off all the overhanging pieces. Repeat this step again only using thinner silver glittered card strips.

Step Five.

Use a stitched rectangle die to cut a small layer. cut this into both coloured card and vellum then attach the two together with a small piece of double-sided tape in the centre. Fix in place on the card front using 1mm foam pads.

Step Six.

Decorate the top of the cup cake with various goodies then attach to the card front using more 3d foam pads. finish off by adding a little bit of sparkle here and there along with the sentiment.

I really love the way you can create different things form Joset’s dies. I hope I have inspired you to have a go at making this cupcake card.

Happy crafting Jackie x

Merry Christmas

November 3, 2022

Hello everyone, Alice here! Today it’s my turn to show you a creation. This time not a Halloween creation, but a Christmas card. I used dies from the new Cozy and Warm collection that were just released last week at Elizabeth Craft Designs.

For this card I used the Holiday Stocking die and an older background die from last year. I made a shaker card with it.

First I made a tray for the shaker material. I made this piece exactly the same size as the background die. In the tray I put the shaker material using different types of products. I like to mix the different types of shaker materials.

To close the shaker part I die cut one slimline background from white cardstock and adhered this piece on top. I really love this background die. He is a great fit for this card.

After I made the Holiday Stocking. For this I used colored cardstock in the same colors as the shaker material. To finish the stocking I added little Christmas Bells that I attached with some small pieces of hemp cord. Now they jingle like a Christmas sound.

On top of the card I made a banner with the text Merry Christmas. This is a sentiment from the Holiday Treats stamp set. I stamped the sentiment with the new distress color lumberjack plaid and on top of that I used distress glaze to finish.

Lastly I backed my shaker with a decorated piece of patterned paper and white cardstock in the same colors at the stocking and shaker material. Now your card is Finished!

I hope you enjoyed my shaker card and hope to see you again soon!

Greetings Alice

X-Mas time

October 12, 2022

Hello everyone! Today Irina here to share a blogpost with you. For this post I was inspired by the colors from a picture I saw on the internet. It’s a clean card with a lot of white. Have you already started making Christmas Cards? I do and I love making them. Let’s start my card tutorial.

Take a piece of white cardstock from 8 x 4 3/4 inch and emboss this with a Elizabeth Craft Designs stencil. I used one of the Planner Essentials Stencils 1.

Take another piece of white cardstock from 8 x 2 inch, a blue and a craft piece from 8 x 0,5 inch.

Glue them together as in the picture. ( on the picture you see te back):

Turn your piece and stamp your sentiment on it. I used X-mas from the stampset CS275.

Glue this part at the bottom of your embossing part.

Diecut and shape your flowers and branches.

Glue them on your card base.

Add a small piece of blue and white cardstock on the left side of the card. Now your card is finished.

I hope you like it. Thank you so much for reading and watching my blogpost. See you next time. Have a great day!

Little Snowman

January 20, 2022

Hello everyone, Alice here. For today’s blog post I made this cute little snowman. Here in the Netherlands there is no snow yet. Hopefully it wil come.

So this time I started working with the snowman. First I made a background with WOW! embossing powder. For this I used the color Skylight (ws231x). It is a powder with some larger shimmer pieces in it. And I love glitter so really love this one! I edited the whole background with the embossing powder.

I made a frame with the Fitted Hexagons. I used the largest die in the set and cut the hexagon in the middle of the square.

I added some snowflakes around the cut out hexagon. The snowflakes are from the Classic Christmas special kit (#K007). I decided to cut them in white to keep attention in the middle. I cute off the parts of the snowflakes that were hanging over the square.

After that I made the snowman in the middle. Colored the details with distress ink. The scarf is the same color as the embossing powder in the background (Cracked Pistachio). I added some trees behind the snowman . The trees are from the Winter Scenery set (#1926)

Finally I added a sheet of kraft paper behind the card front to finish it off.

I hope I was able to give you some inspiration today. See you next time!

Snow Globe Shaker Card

December 22, 2021

Hi Friends and welcome to my last blog post for the year for Elizabeth Craft Designs. It was a little over a year ago when I first began my journey with Elizabeth Crafts. Creating with their florals and A5 Planner dies this past year has been so much fun. I just couldn’t close out my year without sharing one final Christmas Card. 

At this point, I am not sure what 2022 will bring with Elizabeth Craft Designs, but I hope you love my final project. 

The florals were designed using Florals 12. I know I have shared a lot of projects with these florals but Christmas to me isn’t just a day, it isn’t just a month, it’s a season. And this Season my family and I have much to be thankful for!  So with Christmas season upon us, I set out to create one last Christmas Card for 2021.

Here on St Joseph Island, we see deer all the time. They are almost sighted each day we head out for errands. I couldn’t resist creating a shaker card with Joset’s Snow Globe and those deer and trees from the Winter Scenery Set.  

To begin with, I cut out the globe on pattern paper and on craft cardstock and than traced it out on acetate so I have a full size piece for the front of the globe. I fussy cut out foam tape and taped the back trim of the die to create a shaker card. I placed glitter on the inside of the shaker.

I cut four of the trees from the Winter Scenery Die Set and cut thin strips of foam tape to adhere to the back of the trees to add some dimension to the globe. I adhered the deer from the Snow Globe Sidekick Set to the front. I just love how this looks, it creates an awesome winter scene in that globe doesn’t it? 

Die cutting out 6 large and 6 medium florals along with 6 leaves I colored and shaped them (if you are a member of the Elizabeth Crafts family Group on Facebook, I did a Live on Friday, Dec 17th and you can see just how I shaped and created those gorgeous florals here: Live Facebook with Karan. If you are not a member, be sure to become one so you can view the replay)

So getting back to my card, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment from the Classic Christmas Sentiments set using White Embossing Powder and attached that to the bottom of the card. 

My final step was to add snow paste and I thought some Art Stones would be a nice touch and look like snow balls around the florals. 

Thank you for following me along this year with my craft shares for Elizabeth Craft Designs. Have yourself a Merry Christmas and I am praying that 2022 will see us all back to normal. Blessings for a bright, prosperous and Healthy 2022!

Yes it was snowing when I took this photo, so fitting for the style of my card Happy Scrapping and I hope to be sharing more with you in 2022!
