Get well soon garland

July 27, 2023

My best friend is in the hospital and the least I can do is send a card, right? But a garland is more fun and hopefully it will put a smile on her face. It is always difficult to photograph a garland so I put them in a circle.

This time I used the Small Doilies from Annette Green as a base, on which I glued a circle from the same set with a letter from the alphabet from Esther Glass.

I attached the flags with a tab from the pocket pages fillers for the sidekick.

Everything got a layer of tea dye distress ink and then a black edge.

It is always quite a bit of work to make such a garland, but it is also very fun to do and it makes everyone happy.

Look at this cutie, Joset’s ladybug with a blue jacket on, I absolutely love it!

I halved the doilies and gave them all a layer of distress ink, I used tea dye. Then they got an edge of black ink, I also edited the letters and the tabs. All flags are attached to the string with the tab.

I hope my girlfriend is better soon and that she can just give this pendulum a place at home.

Thanks again for your visit,

Field of Poppies

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!

Get Well Card- Coloring on Glitter

March 7, 2015

Hi Friends!

Debra here today. One of the first things that I learned and fell in love with from Elizabeth Craft Designs was using peel-off stickers that are adhered to cardstock covered with Transparent Double-Sided Adhesive and then glittered. Seeing color flowing over the sparkly, glittered surface was like magic to me – oh-so-beautiful and easy! You can hardly mess it up and the results are stunning every time. I created a Get Well Soon card featuring this signature technique to share with you today.

1. Start with the flowers:

  • Before reading the instructions below, you can see a video Els created using this technique here.
  • Place a sheet of Transparent Double-Sided Adhesive onto white cardstock that is big enough for your peel-offs and remove the release sheet.
  • Be careful not to touch the adhesive or it will leave fingerprints in the glitter.
  • Place the peel-offs onto the release sheet (sticky side up).
  • Place the cardstock that has Transparent Double-Sided Adhesive on top of the peel-off. (In other words, place sticky onto sticky.)
  • Use the release sheet in handling the cardstock until you cover the adhesive with glitter so you don’t leave fingerprints.
  • Cover the adhesive with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter, polish the glitter with your finger and brush excess off.
  • * Color your images as desired using alcohol-based markers on the glitter.
  • Cut around all peel-off pieces.
  • Color white edges with a black permanent marker to give a more finished look.

* Coloring Tips for alcohol-based markers and glitter: Remember when using alcohol-based markers, such as Copics, work quickly and don’t let the tip of the marker linger on the glittered surface. Too much alcohol ink can dissolve the adhesive and remove the glitter. It takes very little ink to color the surface of the glittered image so work with a light touch. To get the faded look as in the image on this card, lay a line of color down along one edge of the section you want to color and then use your Blender pen to pull the color across the rest of the image. You may have to lay more color down to get deeper shading after you blend it out.

2. Making the card:

  • Fold a piece of 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ white cardstock in half to create a standard A2 size card base.
  • Cut a piece of pattern paper 5 1/4″ x 4″ and another piece of that same pattern paper to 1″ x 4 1/4″ and ink the edges with brown ink.
  • Cut a piece of white cardstock 4 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ and a piece of salmon-colored cardstock 4″ x 3″.

3. Place the Get Well Soon Stand Up Helper die on the upper left edge of the salmon cardstock. Die cut and trim away excess from both sides of the die cut words.

4. Adhere pattern paper to card front.

  • Adhere Get Well Soon salmon cardstock to white cardstock.
  • Adhere glittered peel-off to salmon cardstock on pop dots.
  • Adhere the extra flower on a pop dot, over the main flower of the right flower vase, offset. See photo below for placement.
  • Add Corners and Borders Peel-Offs to the pattern paper to complete the front.

5. Decorate the inside of the card:

  • Adhere 1″ x 4 1/4″ strip of pattern paper to bottom inside about 1/2″ from the bottom.
  • Add colored and glittered flower with stem peel-off, corner, border and circles to complete.

Get Well Tea Card

June 11, 2014

Card Cover

Created by Mary Dimercurio Prasad for the Elizabeth Craft Designs DT.

For this card, I had the idea to create a colorful China style paper with some splatters to use for my teapot and teacups. I also wanted to include a real teabag with the card so I needed a pocket somewhere – it worked out best on the front of the card.

Making the Card

1. Cut card base from pink cardstock 5 1/2 inches by 8 1/4 inches. Fold in half. Cut black cardstock 5 inches by 3 5/8 inches. Cut patterned cardstock 4 3/4 by 3 3/8. Adhere black cardstock and patterned paper together as shown.

2. Cut pink cardstock 4 inches by 2 5/8 inches. Sew into a pocket as shown. Cut black cardstock 3 3/8 by 2 1/8. Adhere to pocket as shown. Adhere all of them to the front of the card.

Card Inside Straight On

3. Using the ink blending tool and Distress Inks, blend colors across a piece of white cardstock (about 5×7 inches); completely cover the paper in bright colors, blending each color into the others where they meet. Squirt some white paint onto a craft sheet or scrap paper; add some water and mix with a paintbrush. Tap brush against your finger to flick the paint onto the inked paper in random patterns. Do the same with the black and pink paints. Let it dry.

4. Cut black cardstock using the Lucy Label accessory die (larger). Cut a strip of pink cardstoack about 1/4 inch. Using the same die, center it and cut. Adhere to black label you just cut as shown.

5. From the inked/splattered paper, cut the teapot and cups (keep track of all pieces), and the small Lucy Label accessory label. Adhere the teapot outline to the front of the card as shown. Adhere “Get Well Soon” centered on the label and attach it to the black/pink label (from step 4) withe dimensional tape. From black cardstock cut the teapot and cups.

6. Cut out enough double-sided transparent adhesive for teapot and cups. Adhere to a new piece of black cardstock. Peel off the other top paper and stick the outlines of the black tea pot and cups to it, leaving enough space between to cut them all out. Carefully cut around each using fine pointed scissors. Stick the inked/splattered pieces into the frame you just created, like fitting them into a puzzle. Using a craft knife, cut a small slit in the teacup where the “tea” will go.

7. Cut a piece of patterned paper to 5 1/2 inches by 6 inches. Fold in half. Cut the Lots of Pops platform offset on the fold as shown (starting about 5/8 of an inch from the left side). Pop out the main platform and the one in front; leave the others un-popped. Adhere to the inside of your card.

8. Adhere the teapot and cups as shown. Cut a piece of gold Shimmer Sheetz to represent tea pouring from the pot into the cup. Adhere both ends as shown, sliding one end into the slot you cut in the cup.

9. Cut two strips 1/8 inch from black cardstock. Adhere the strips as shown. Use dimensional tape to adhere the “Get Well Soon” label where shown.

Nesting Dolls Oval Accordion Card

May 12, 2014

Hello everyone! Helen here today, sharing with you an accordion card. Ever since I first came across Elizabeth Craft Designs, I had my eye on the Nesting Doll Peel-Offs, thinking that they would be fun to have a go at colouring one day. Well, I finally got round to it, and thoroughly enjoyed myself!



1. Cut out some double-sided adhesive, large enough for a nesting doll peel-off, and stick one side of it onto white cardstock.

2. Stick a nesting doll peel-off sticker to the other side of the double sided adhesive. I used Els’s transfer technique to get my peel-off sticker nice and straight on the adhesive. Watch Els demoing this technique HERE.

3. Cover the nesting doll and adhesive with Cool Diamond Microfine Silk Glitter, and rub in.

4. Colour the nesting doll with Copic pens, and add highlights with White Enamel Accents. Set aside to dry.

5. Cut out the nesting doll.

6. Use the Accordion Oval Card die set, and Oval Flourish Frame Edges to cut out the pieces as shown below. For the gingham frames, cut out  full Accordion Oval panels, snip out the centre parts, and trim off extra tabs.

7. Also die cut a ‘Get Well Soon’, two of the smallest leaves from the Triple Leaf set, and a heart which is also from the Accordion Oval Card die set.


8. Adhere the Flourish Frame edges with a glue pen, and adhere the rest of the big pieces with a glue runner.

9. Adhere the words and leaves with a glue pen, and the doll and heart on foam pads.


10. Finally, add some more White Enamel Accents in between the die cut stitches on the turquoise oval panel.


I hope you have enjoyed this card! Why not have another look at Elizabeth Craft Designs’ wonderful range of Peel-Off Stickers, and see if any catch your eye?!
