It’s Frances Byrne here today. I love the look of black and white cards and adding a pop of color is always fun to add to this color scheme too. Today I have used one of the patterned papers from the Through the Lens Stone collection along with the Stitched and Fitted Squares to create a frame to create a birthday card.
Field of Poppies
By Judi Kauffman
Hello, everbody. It’s Judi Kauffman, back as Guest Designer with four cards that can be made with a single sheet of Flower in Frame black outline peel-offs. One of my favorite memories of a trip to California was seeing an entire field of poppies in bloom. Red, red, and more red…kind of like the stadium during a football game in Lincoln, Nebraska – only silent instead of deafening!
Hello this is Christine from Susan’s Garden Club’s Design Team with a new post. My post today was inspired by a picture I saw on the internet – a galvanized pail full of blue pansies. I cannot wait until I can actually have the real thing. I have purchased the pail and now all I need is warmer weather and pansies.
Here is how I constructed this card:
Hi, It’s Sandy Diller here today to share a project with you that is all about using what you already own in a creative way. I just love Els’s new patterned cardstock “Through the Lens”, and I’m always on the lookout for ways to use it. Our grandson is graduating from High School in June and I wanted a way to display his photo that honors the occasion. I found an unfinished wooden frame in my stash that I decided to use.
Fast & Easy Shimmer Sheetz Notepads
By Judi Kauffman
I love it when life hands me a win-win. I needed to come up with a small handmade gift on short notice – I’d forgotten a friend’s birthday and had only half an hour before we were scheduled to meet for lunch. And I was also on deadline for my Elizabeth Craft Designs blog project. I took photos of the notepad before wrapping it and headed out the door!
I already had some paper-covered sticky notepad covers made. Add 10 minutes to the project if you are starting from square one (pun intended!).
Hi everyone – it’s Sandy Diller here to share a project using the new “Through the Lens” papers from Els van de Burgt Studio. I fell in love with these papers at first sight, so of course couldn’t wait to use them. I haven’t made an artist trading block for awhile so thought this is a perfect time to use these great papers in a fun way. Valentine’s Day is not too far away – why not combine the two?
It’s Frances Byrne here. For my card today I am using a few more of the new dies that were released earlier this month from the Els van de Burgt Studio and Joset Designs collections available from Elizabeth Craft Designs. There are so many fun ways to use the Fitted and Stitched basic shape dies that include Squares, Rectangles, Circles and Ovals. I have also used the new Kites die set which is suitable for all ages.
Another thing that was released earlier this month was the new Through the Lens 6″ x 6″ Patterned Paper Packs that bring Els’s awesome photography to your creations. Today I am using one of the papers from the Stone Series Paper Pack.
Here’s how I created my card
- Cut a piece of teal cardstock that measures 5 1/2 inches x 11 inches. Score this piece along the 11 inch side at 5 1/2 inches. Fold along the score line. This will be the card base.
