December 23, 2020

Good morning!
I hope you are all ready for the Holiday Season and enjoying this festive time of year!
I love creating Off The Page Projects and I made these as name tags for gifts inspired by Els Christmas Ornaments! (you can find it here)

To create these:
Step 1 – select your pinecone and add snow paste to the edges
Step 2 – create 3 poinsettia’s using the Christmas Accents die set, ink edges, add glitter to edges and assemble with one large leaf
Step 3 – die cut many different pieces using different shades of green cardstock from the Create A Wreath, ink edges and use the red craft drops for berries and allow to dry
Step 4 – glue a loop of ribbon onto the top of the acorns to create the hanger

Reindeer tag
Step 1 – die cut a tag (using your favorite ECD tag die) and ink the edges and add a loop of ribbon
Step 2 – die cut Holly Jolly from Planner Essentials 15 using Double Sided Adhesive Sheets, add True Red Silk Microfine Glitter and adhere to the tag
Step 3- die cut, ink edges and assemble the Reindeer and adhere to the tag
Step 4 – adhere the tag to the pinecone

Step 5 – Adhere some of the wreath pieces cascading from the top of the pinecone
Step 6 – Tie a bow and adhere to the top of pinecone
Step 7 – add one of the completed poinsettias and add more snow texture paste

Birdhouse
Step 1 – die cut, ink and assemble the Holiday Bird House using double sided adhesive and Cool Diamond Silk Mircrofine Glitter for the snow and Craft Drops for the lights
Step 2 – adhere a piece of ribbon to the back of the house and adhere the other side to the top of the pine cone


Step 3 – adhere in a falling cascade some of the wreath pieces you previously die cut
Step 4 – adhere one of the assembled poinsettias to the top of the pine cone and add more snow texture paste

Jingle Bell
Step 1 – loop a piece of ribbon through the top of the jingle bell that you added some snow texture to, so it hangs slightly below the pine cone


Step 2 – die cut a gift from the Flourished Christmas Minis using cardstock (ink the edges) and double sided adhesive and glitter and assemble with a loop of ribbon and adhere to cone

Step 3 – cascade many pieces of the wreath that you die cut earlier, overlapping as needed
Step 4 – add a poinsettia to the top


Step 5 – add more snow texture
Step 6 – add your recipients name to the ornaments

I hope you enjoyed my name tags
And Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

A Way With Words

Building a Christmas Scene

December 12, 2020

The mantel is my favorite place to decorate for Christmas. It’s in the family room and where we spend most of our time and I like to go all out on it. So I was very excited to get the Hang the Stockings set – there are so many pieces in this die set and at such a good price! To really deck out the scene, I added a lot of details using the new release from Suzanne Cannon as well as some older sets.

The fireplace die set is very large so I started with a 5″x7″ card base. I found some textured beige paper to be my wall so I trimmed that down to 4.75″ x 6.75″. My fireplace is white so it was two die cuts straight from card stock to make the detailed fireplace. For my stockings, I found some Christmas patterned paper. To make that yellow glow behind the fire, I used Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber on a very dark gray cardstock.

After the basic setting, I looked through the other dies I had to see what could work around the fireplace. For the green swag, I die cut the pine bough from the Create A Wreath from green card stock and used different green Copic markers for a variety in hues. The poinsettias were created with the smallest two flower dies from Christmas Accents.

The twin trees and presents are from the Flourished Christmas Minis 2 and Flourished Christmas Minis 3. I trimmed all the flourishes off the trees and used just the lid of the presents for smaller gifts. There’s even a stack of 3 presents because when it’s a great gift, I buy multiples! Lol! I’m not a fan of Christmas shopping at all.

I hope you like my warm little Christmas scene and have inspired you to see your dies in other ways!

A Flourished Christmas

November 28, 2020

Hi Friends! It’s EK and I am popping in with a trio of cards featuring A Way with Words Flourished Christmas Minis 2. These three cards were all using the same techniques but ended up with different looks due to the different A Way With Words sentiments I picked.

Step One: Using 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock, blend water soluble ink over the paper. I used Distress Oxides. Splatter wet ink over the cardstock. Add a spray of Shimmer Spray.

Step Two: Repeat step one with two other pieces of cardstock. I used the new trio of Distress Oxides, Rustic Wilderness, Crackling Campfire, and Speckled Egg to create these looks.

Step Three: Die cut the A Way With Words Flourished Christmas Minis 2 out of Clear Double Side Adhesive Sheets. (I have recently mastered Clear Double Sided Adhesive die cut and adhere without applying the sheet to a piece of cardstock prior!)

Step Four: Peel off the brown side of the Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet and adhere it to your project. Then Peel off the slick top paper.

Step Five: Adhere a substance to the Clear Double Sided Adhesive. I used Nuvo Gilding Flakes.

Step Six: Using a stiff brush, rub off the excess substance.

Step Seven: Repeat steps five-six with the other cardstocks.

Step Eight: Die cut your cardstock and adhere the pieces to A2 card frames using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive. I used both Stitched Indented Rectangle die set and Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set.

Step Nine: Using more Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheets, die cut A Way With Words sentiments. I used A Way With Words Peace on Earth, Merry Christmas, and Cheers.

Step Ten: Peel and stick the sentiments to the card frames.

Step Eleven: Add Silk Microfine Glitter to the sentiments. I used Sea Glass Silk Microfine Glitter for the sentiment and Cook Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter for the star.

I used Bright Cranberry Silk Microfine Glitter for the flourish card.

I used Imperial Garnet Silk Microfine Glitter for the sentiment on tree card, Sea Glass Silk Microfine Glitter for the ornaments, and Solar Gold Silk Microfine Glitter for the star.

Step Twelve: Finally, add Craft Drops to the cards. I used Pearl Rose on the orange card.

I used both Metallic Gold and White for the Speckled Egg card.

I used Metallic Gold and Pearl Olive Craft Drops on the green card.

Thank you for checking out my trio of Christmas cards today. Let us know your favorite one in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting!

Joy Gift Tag

August 1, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Joy Gift Tag.

To create my Joy Gift Tag, I’ve used a variety of dies and stamps from Suzanne Cannon as well as Els van de Burgt Studio. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my gift tag at home.

Step One. From the Planner Essentials 26 – Planner Pocket 3 – Tag & Toppers die, die cut the small tag out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two. Choose a couple of the snowflakes from the Christmas Collection stamp set. Apply Emboss It Ink to the snowflakes and stamp randomly on the tag, reapply ink as needed, you’ll need a total of fourteen snowflakes. Sprinkle Forever Platinum Modern Gilding Powder over the stamped images. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Ink the edges of the tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Die cut a 2 1/2″ Stitched Circle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the circle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the Love Joy & Peace Christmas Ornament, die cut the ornament out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the entire surface of the ornament. Sprinkle Kells Gold Modern Gilding Powder over the entire surface of the ornament. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Five. From the Love Joy & Peace Christmas Ornament, die cut the joy word out of White Soft Finish Cardstock and black cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the entire surface of the white Joy word. Sprinkle Forever Platinum Modern Gilding Powder over the entire surface of the word. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Six. Die cut the Snowflake from the Flourished Christmas Minis 2 out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the entire surface of the snowflake. Sprinkle Forever Platinum Modern Gilding Powder over the entire surface of the snowflake. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Seven. Adhere the ornament to the stitched circle. Foam square the stitched circle 1/4″ from the right and 1 1/8″ from the bottom of the tag.

Step Eight. Adhere the snowflake to the middle of the ornament. Adhere the Joy embossed word slightly to the right overtop of the black cardstock Joy word, this will create a shadow in behind the embossed Joy word. Use foam squares to adhere the Joy word to the bottom right corner of the tag.

Step Nine. Tie a bow at the top of the tag with a piece of black twine. To finish off the tag, use White Craft Drops to add dots to the snowflake as desired.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Joy Gift Tag.

November 2, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, I’m thrilled to be sharing with you my Let your Heart be Light Wall Hanging, which features the brand new collection of stamps and dies from Suzanne Cannon! To compliment the products from Suzanne Cannon, I’ve also used dies from Els van de Burgt Studio.

See my step-by-step below –– I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

Step One. Die cut all the pieces from the Flourish Holly die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Candied Apple Distress Ink over the entire surface of the berries. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Peeled Paint Distress Ink over the entire surface of the flourished holly and single see through holly. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Mowed Lawn Distress Ink over the entire surface of the two holly leaves.

Step Two. From the Love, Joy & Peace Christmas Ornament, die cut the ornament out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the ornament and sprinkle Copper Scroll Modern Gilding Powder over the entire surface. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Three. Die cut the snowflake three times from the Flourished Christmas Minis 2 out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Four. Die cut the Flourished Frame out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Five. Choose two patterned papers that coordinate. From one of the patterned papers, die cut a 4″ Stitched Rectangle out of the paper. From the other patterned paper, die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Rectangle out of the paper. Distress the edges of both pieces. Ink the edges of both pieces using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. Apply Candied Apple Distress Ink to the Let your Heart sentiment from the Let Your Heart be Light stamp set and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the sentiment out using the 2″ Stitched Circle.

Step Seven. To support the wall hanging, cut a piece that measures 4″ x 5 1/4″ out of thicker cardstock or a bingo card. Ink the edges of the piece using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. Adhere the 4″ stitched rectangle to the 4″ base. Adhere the flourished frame to the 4″ stitched rectangle. Adhere the 3 1/2″ stitched rectangle to the 4″ stitched rectangle.

Step Nine. Adhere the three snowflake randomly on the 3 1/2″ stitched rectangle.

Step Ten. Adhere the ornament to the stitched circle. Foam square the stitched circle to the middle of the 3 1/2″ stitched rectangle.

Step Twelve. Adhere the flourished holly together. Adhere the assembled flourished holly to the top of the ornament.

Step Thirteen. To finish the wall hanging, add a piece of twine to the back of the wall hanging.

Sneak Peek: Flourished Deer!

October 19, 2019

I’m thrilled to introduce you to some of the brand new dies coming VERY soon to Elizabeth Craft Designs! 

Meet the Flourished Deer – large enough to be a feature design on a card and yet leave room for lots of other embellishments if you wish.  The Flourished Deer comes with a collar, a bell, an eye and a Rudolph nose should you wish to use it!  It’s so versatile!

The flourished snowflake is part of a new set of Flourished Christmas Minis which are perfect on their own and also fit beautifully inside the Love Joy Peace Christmas Ornament.  They’re great for combining with stamps, too.  (We have a new set of those as well!)

This is how you make this card….
