Good morning ECD fans! Do you struggle with creating masculine cards like I do? Why not create several cards to have on hand that can be used for both men and women.
Joset’s Feathers are perfect for creating these types of cards!
Hello to all my crafty friends out there!
Welcome to ECD. Today my post for Susan’s Garden Club Team has Susan’s newly launched Garden Notes Gerbera Daisy and Garden Notes Fairy – Tiger Lily . My Fairy is dancing in her flared skirt and she is super happy. For the background of my card I used the colors of spring.
Have a look!!!
Hi Everyone. It’s Tina here today showcasing the new Coloring Stamps and matching dies by Krista Schneider. I have a super fun card to share with you as well as a DIY background. Below you will find easy steps to replicate this card.
Often, I don’t have just what I want as a background to go with patterned papers. I will show you an easy way to create your own coordinating paper using the bubble technique. (It’s the paper shown inside the frame.)
Wishing all my friends and fellow crafters a very good day.
Where I live the spring season is in full bloom, marking the end of a hard winter season and the beginning of fresh sunny weather ahead. The spring season brings vibrantly colored flowers that dot the fields and gardens. Flowers brighten our lives with their beauty. One such flower is the hydrangea – also known as the water flower. Hydrangeas signify heartfelt emotions, gratitude and thanksgiving to one you care for, as well as abundance and prosperity. With these emotions in mind I have created this card with the hydrangea as the central theme.
Hello my dear friends and welcome to the ECD blog.
It’s Pavitra here. I love to make flowers and it’s so easy to create gorgeous natural looking flowers with Susan’s Garden flower dies. The Hydrangea, Gerbera Daisies, Roses, and Tulip are among the newest release and you will surely love all of them.
Today I have a card that showcases the new Garden Notes Tulip 2 . It’s a congratulations card with flowers placed against wooden background created using Soft Finish Cardstock.
It’s Frances here for the Elizabeth Craft Designs Coloring Design Team. Today I am playing with one of the new stamp sets designed by Elizabeth Craft Designs’ new Designer Krista Schneider, the Stamps by Krista range. I love creating scenes using stamps, so I decided to use the stamps from the Birch Forest stamp set to create one on my card.

To get us started today, Selma Stevenson has created this wonderful Dreamcatcher card. For the “stitched” part of the challenge, Selma has used the Stitched Fishtails, one of the new dies, and the Celebrate sentiment from the Els van de Burgt Studio collection. To decorate her card, Selma has used the Dreamcatcher, Arrows and some of the negative pieces from the Diamond Background (on the sides of her card) – dies all from Joset Designs. Selma used Soft Finish Cardstock to create her card and embellished the Dreamcatcher using Glitter Dots Peel-Offs.
Sandy Diller is making us quiver with this fun tag. Sandy has created a tag using the Tags & More – Lace die set from the Els van de Burgt Collection. Sandy has used the new Joset Designs Diamond Background die to create an embossed pattern onto the Olive Twist Soft Finish Cardstock tag. Sandy’s “stitched” pieces are the ModaScrap Stitched Fishtail Banners and the Els van de Burgt Studio Stitched Hearts. To finish off her tag, Sandy added the Joset Designs Arrows to the heart.
For our next project today, Birgit Norton has created a beautiful card using the Stitched Hearts; Stitched Rectangles; Dotted Scallop Rectangles, Leaf & Berry Branches and Love Sentiments from the Els van de Burgt Studio collection. Birgit chose Soft Finish Cardstock to create her card using the colors White, Olive Twist and Pale Peach.
Frances Byrne has created a fun background on her card using the ModaScrap Stitched Fishtail Banners and Dark Fuchsia, Perfect Purple, Dusky Lavender and White Soft Finish Cardstock. To decorate her card Frances has used the Stitched Circles, Dotted Scallop Rectangles and Celebrate sentiment from Els van de Burgt Studio. To finish off her card she chose the Joset Designs Small Cupcake, using Lavender Ice Silk Microfine Glitter on the stars.
Evgenia Petzer has created our next gorgeous card. To decorate her card she has used the ModaScrap Stitched Fishtail Banners for the designer paper on the background of her card. Evgenia has also used ModaScrap Leaf Branch 3 and Lace Heart, and Stitched Hearts from Els van de Burgt Studio.
Design Team member Sanna Lippert decided to create not one, but two cards for the challenge using similar dies and layout. For her cards Sanna chose the Stitched Fishtails, Stitched Hearts and Love Sentiments from Els van de Burgt Studio. Sanna also used Joset Designs General Sentiments Clear Stamps to create the XOXO background on the fishtail tag on the top card.
Next up is a card from Melanie Smith. Melanie chose the Stitched Rectangles from Els van de Burgt Studio to die cut the rectangular panels on her card. To decorate her card Melanie has used Joset Designs Teacup die using various designer papers . Melanie has also added the ‘Happy Birthday” sentiment from the General Sentiments Clear Stamp set which has been layered using the ModaScrap Stitched Fishtail Banners.
Anita Kejriwal created our next card which uses the Stitched Fishtails, Stitched Circles and the Celebrate sentiment from Els van de Burgt Studio on Soft Finish Cardstock. Anita has also used the ModaScrap Stitched Fishtails; Leaf Pocket; Leafy Branch 3 and Happy Flowers to decorate her card. Note how she has backed the Stitched Fishtails with the Leaf Pocket die.
Our final card for today is from Katelyn Grosart. Katelyn has used the Stitched Circles and Stitched Rectangles from Els van de Burgt Studio. To decorate her card Katelyn has also used ModaScrap Stitched Fishtail Banners; Leafy Branch 2; Leafy Branch 3 and Happy Flowers on Soft Finish Cardstock. The tiny circles inside the flowers were created using one of the dies from the Dreamcatcher die set from Joset Designs as well as the General Sentiments stamp set.
