It’s been a long while since I’ve been the guest designer on our blog. It’s fun to be in my studio for two whole weeks instead of on the road. Today’s project is my way of celebrating the new Feathers die set as well as Tim Holtz’s brand new Distress Oxide inks – a great combo!
The Distress Oxide inks are just amazing. I love how they respond with water, how you can combine colors without messing up, and how easy it is to get terrific results. I used them for a spattered looking background on my card as well as for the banner and feathers.
Hi Everyone! It’s Katelyn here, sharing a masculine Birthday Card. My starting point for the card was the cupcake die. To make this card I used some of the newly-released dies as well as some favorite classic dies from Joset Designs, ModaScrap, and Els van de Burgt Studio. Let me show you how to make the card.
Welcome to the ECD blog. This is Anita here. I have to think long and hard when it comes to making masculine cards and most of the time I struggle to decide which elements create a proper one. Elizabeth Craft Designs has some beautiful die sets that can be transformed with simple colouring to make cards for the men in our lives.
I have a very elegant masculine card today. I used several layers to build my card and chose the new Distress Oxide inks to colour the feathers.
Happy Friday! Hope everyone has fun weekend plans! It’s Karen, here with a birthday card that I made for my mom. She is the best mom (for me) and really enjoys the cards I make for her. I used the Purr Clear Stamps and coordinating dies, plus the Twist Circle Pop-Up die set.
It’s Frances here today with a fun tutorial to share with you. I have created a Double Gatefold Card using the ModaScrap Gatefold – Elegant Roses die set. This is a new way to create a Gatefold Card, different from what is shown on the packaging.

Hi There!! It’s Elena here today with a beautiful floral card. I am in love with the new flower stamp sets and just had to make a card with a bouquet on it. Maybe it’s all the cold weather lately, but I needed some flowers to cheer me up and make me think of spring so I couldn’t resist combining the stamp sets into one lovely arrangement.
