Paper Flowers

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!

XOXO Irina

Wonderful Time of Year

September 15, 2022

Hello creative friends welcome back to the Elizabeth Crafts Blog, it is Karan Gerber here to share a holiday card with you. Although it seems a bit early to be sharing Holiday cards, my desk is full of Christmas Projects at the moment so i wanted to get a jump start on a few more.

Using Planner Essentials 47 to cut out the tree, i cut it out 6 times, just trimming off the tree and i layered them all in the circles. I then cut the deer on a coordinating paper from the collection i was using. 

I used the stitched circles to create a winter scene, starting with the smaller circle on the inside layer, then the larger circle on the outside layer. Using foam adhesive  to pop the layers to allow me to create this lovely winter scene


The florals 12, i used and cut out on Foamiran which is a light felt paper, i shaped and added stamens, paint , then a bit of snow paste and finally glitter to the centers. They turned out so beautiful, that i know i will be doing this technique again and again.

I love how this winter scene turned out, and what a great way to get a jumpstart on my Holiday Cards. I hope you dig into your planner essentials and see which ones will work for your holiday cards

Holly Jolly, here is Santa!

June 28, 2022

Hello everyone, Marjolijn here today. Immediately when I saw the retro bus from Elizabeth Craft Designs I thought of a Christmas bus. Love Peace & Christmas. And how I like him. Santa is behind the wheel but when you open the map…

Ho-Ho-Ho!!!! Look who’s there!!!

How cute is he? Below you see a working description of the card.

First I die-cut all parts from paper from Esther’s reminiscence book 1. Then all parts got an edge with frayed burlap

The card is made of white sturdy paper, I used DCP, you can also use ECD soft finish cardstock. Fold 30 x 15 cm paper in half and place the folded edge against the cutting line.

Unfold the card and punch out the windows, do not turn any further than just past the blue arrow.

Santa Claus is colored with brush markers.

Santa Claus is glued into the card so that he just barely fits behind the wheel. Then stick a piece of design paper over the reinforce holes and the steering wheel.

Stamp the text on the side. Special delivery, I cut the stamp in half for that.

I cut off the stars.

On the inside I punched out the parts of which you can see the back of the paper again and glued them over it. On the front I made the lighting with some snow stars and glued the small cut stars on it. Finally, I twisted a string around the tree.

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!

Craftily yours, Karen

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!

Whimsical Winter Ornaments

December 11, 2021

Hello there, Jackie here today with a selection of cute and simple woodland ornaments to hang on the tree or even use as gift tags. super simple to make using the gorgeous new whimsical winter dies from Joset with added brush lettering sentiments from Sue Smith’s brush lettering sentiment stamps.

Step One

Start by die cutting a four framed circles, lay two nesting circles dies together and tape the reverse side. Here I have used the stitched circles for added interest.

Step Two

Die cut or fussy cut a white circle that fits slightly smaller than the prepared frame, then use the adventure edges to create a snowy hill. Fix this to the reverse side of the frame.

Step Three

Attach another frame to the reverse side for added stability and to create some added dimension.

Step Four

Die cut of fussy cut another white circle and create another snowy hill but make sure it sits higher than the last.

Step Five

Die cut or fussy cut a further circle this time using a light blue card. Stamp out and white heat emboss the sentiment on one side and then splatter white paint all over.

Step Six

Fix the sentiment panel to the reverse side then attach a further frame over the sentiment to add a neat finish.

Step Seven

Build up the ornament using all the woodland animals and trees design a winter scene, I added a dab of white ink to the trees and a dab of brown ink to the tops of the animals.

Step Eight

Finish off by punching a hole toward the top of each ornament and adding a string to hang.

Thank you for dropping by today. I hope I have inspired you to have a go at these ornaments.

Happy crafting – Jackie

Tis the Season

November 24, 2021

Hello Friends and welcome to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog. It is Karan here sharing a Christmas card with you, designed with the new Blooms Collection and Florals 12 from Elizabeth Crafts. Along with a easy background tutorial you can easily do on your own.

I am in the mood for Christmas and wanted to create a few more Christmas Cards so I hope you enjoy this one. 


I went into my EC stash and pulled out everything related to Christmas, to create this. I have a few steps here i can share with you on how i created this gorgeous card. 

To begin with i used canson water color paper for my main background, smooshed some antique linen on my mat and pulled my background paper through that. (this measures 4 x 6 by the way) Stamping with CS146 as i felt it reminded me of the days of Christmas. I used Gold embossing powder form Nuvo and heat set that. 

I inked around the edges with antique linen distress ink again just to add a bit of dimension. I added some splatters to the background using aged mahogony and the water brush woth the water color set. 

I then set that aside to dry and got started on my blooms.

I stamped 6 of the poinsettia flowers from the Peace Bloom set. I wasn’t sure at this point how many I was going to use, I just knew I wanted to use them. I stamped with versa mark and then heat setting them with gold embossing powder. I then colored them with the water colors. As it turned out I only used two of these on my final project. I stamped the sentiment from CS101 – Classic Christmas Sentiments onto canson water color paper using black Archival Ink. I did the same smooshing technique to the sentiment as i did to my background. 

Layering the main background with black, then gold mirri, red and craft to coordinate with the colors in the background. I added some florals using the florals 12 coloring with aged mahogany and adding stamens to the centers.

I wanted to use the blooms from the Peace set as the background layer and added my florals 12 on top of that both on the top and bottom of the sentiment block

I grabbed my favorite snow paste and just dabbed some of that around my card to give it that snowy look you see. 

I added some colored seam binding and gold thread to tie this all together. I hope you have enjoyed my little step out tutorial today.

Merry & Bright Mini Album

November 10, 2021

Hello Friends and welcome to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog. It is Karan Gerber here sharing a project with you. Today I have a mini album to share with you. I designed this using the Florals 12 on the cover along with the Indented Stitched Rectangles and Stitched Fishtails. The inside boosts a few more of my favorites and I hope you enjoy. 

The papers are from Stamperia – Classic Christmas. I love the vintage feel to the images in this collection and they were perfect for photo flips throughout the album. 

Inside cover and first page. I free hand drew the curves pockets on the inside front cover and used the Indented Rectangles as photo mats throughout the album.

Page 2 and 3 – Indented Rectangles used again for photo flips. 

Above I used Planner Essentials 16 and created a pocket from that large tree. Photo mats will fit in there. Same with the Small Villages on page 5. Photo mats will slip in under the houses and trees on that page. 

For pages 6 and 7 I used the Stitched Indented Rectangles for the front of a side pocket. 

For he last page and inside back cover I used the Stitched Circles and Indented Rectangles. Lots of gold mirri paper was used throughout. 

I am attaching some detail photos of the cover for you. I hope you have enjoyed my project share for you today.
