Daisies – Thank You card

March 15, 2014


Hi Everyone!! My name is Jackie Smith and I was super excited to be asked to join the first ever Elizabeth Craft Designs Design Team! It’s my first post and I’m going to show you how to use Karen Burniston’s newest Pop It Ups Collection dies called ‘Accordion Oval’ to make a real simple card. In this die package comes an oval frame along with 4 nesting ovals plus a heart. I started off using Pool Party paper as my base and cut out 2 frames using the Oval frame die. I wanted to add a layer to both frames which is really easy to do. I first cut 2 frames out of the butterfly paper (Kaisercraft collection – “Enchanted Garden”). I then cut out the oval and cut the frame down 1/8″ along the short and long sides. I did this to all 4 sides of the 2 frames. You can see Karen demoing this die here

I cut out 2 more ovals using the dies that come with this oval set and stamped the sentiment by Stampendous using Archival ink by Wendy Vecchi. I added a black butterfly peel-off called ‘Daisies in Oval’ and coloured it using Copic Markers on Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.  You can see Els demoing it  here on her YouTube video.


For the inside of both frames, I cut out the polka Dot border using the Oval Dot Frame Edges. I used double sided adhesive that was placed onto decorative paper. I then applied Fuchsia Silk Microfine Glitter to the left side of the frame and Leaf Green to the right. For the left side I used the black peel-off Daisies in Oval and colored them using Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. I used the following Copic Markers:

For the right side I used the die called “Daisy”. I cut the daisy silhouette out of pink Shimmer Sheetz and the overlay out of black Velvet Adhesive sheet. I used a glue pen for the centre of the flower and added some Fuchsia Silk Microfine Glitter.  I then cut the leaves using the leaf die from the same die set using Peridot Gemstone Shimmer Sheetz. I cut out the greeting using the die called ‘Thank You’ from Pink and Black Velvet Adhesive sheets. I laid the black ‘Thank You’ down first and then offset the pink ‘Thank You’ on top.

Fancy Label Accordion Card with The Bowl of Cherries Peel Offs

March 14, 2014

Hi, it’s Kelly Booth here with My First Post on the ECD Blog!  I’m Excited to be on this Very talented team and get to work with Amazing Tools.

I decided to work with the Fancy Label Accordion Die Set along with the Fancy Frame Edges and the Bowl of Cherry Peel Offs. I Love coloring the Peel Off stickers in the Usual Way (on cardstock) and also using the Silk Microfine Glitter and coloring them. For this card I colored them in the Usual way with the Exception of one of the Cherries which I have colored on the Silk Microfine Glitter.

Here is the Front of my CardLife_is_Sweeter_Closed

Those Cherries are so much fun to Color

Here are a Few Close ups so you can see the detail a little better



See the Silk Microfine Glitter on the Cherry?  I Love the way it Sparkles….

I’m a big fan of a Nice Black Line and you don’t always get that with Ink that is copic Friendly so this Solves that problem for me and I Love it!

Little Fishes Big Thank You

March 10, 2014

Good morning, Everyone!

This is Rita Edwards and sharing my very first Design Team card today. We’re making a sweet Thank You card !

You might already know how much I love the ocean and what better image to use than the Fishes Peel-Off Stickers! I also chose the Accordion Oval Card die set with the Oval Dots Frame Edges and the Thank You die sets.

Once all the die cuts are made, the very first step I take is connecting the base pieces and only then start adding the frames. This way we can cover the connection points between two base pieces, just like this photo below shows. Also, to create the perfect frames for the base card, I work with all four of the frame edges at once. I first place some glue on the back of each frame piece and only press the middle of each frame onto the base cut. This way I can easily adjust the connection points of each frame segment and the result is perfectly lined up frames.
