Have a Magical Day

July 25, 2021

Welcome! Samantha here sharing a fairy magical card! I originally had plans to join in the Christmas in July fun and create a Christmas themed card using the Snow Globe die. Instead I used many Elizabeth Craft Design dies to create a magical background for fairies!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Die cut the snow globe as shown below. Adhere globe pieces to a light grey card base.

Step 2: Use Adventure Edges and Adventure Edges 2 to create a grassy scene using green pattern paper and cardstock.

Step 3: Continue, to create a background scene. Die cut the sun, clouds and mushroom from Once Upon a Time Accessories

Step 4: Using a variety of colours, die cut Fairy 1. Assemble the pieces together and put the Fairy aside.

Step 5: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to white cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (silver). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Use this to die cut the wings.

Step 6: Die cut the frame of the snow globe, using foam tape, adhere this on top of the first frame.

Step 7: Stamp the sentiment on to Kraft card, and adhere this to the card front.

Step 8: Die cut the flowers from Adventure Edges 2, adhere these to the card front. Embellish card front with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere the fairy to the card front.

Today’s card is a great way of repurposing Christmas dies – I think If you were to go through your Elizabeth Craft Designs die collection there would be so many other card themes available, that pair up nicely with the Snow Globe die.

Happy Crafting!

Little Chocolate Cow

June 29, 2021

When you love chocolate, you need to make the very famous cow! This time I made the cow with felted wool, love the texture of this! At first I cut out all the pieces from the felt in different colors like white, purple and light pink. I didn’t have the color brown that I wanted to use for the feet so I decided to use Ground Expresso Distress Ink to color the white felt brown. On the back site I used double sided adhesive. Then it’s super easy to assemble your cow.

For the background I used Lindy’s Magicals. This is a powder with a lot of pigments. I used the colors Prima Donna Purple and Cattail Copper Brown. When you spray with water you have a lot of colors! Of course I wanted to have purple on the background, because that’s the color of the cow. I also added a little bit of brown to match with the chocolate.

For a simple effect on the background I used a mask from the stencil pack S041 together with expanding mouse (worn linnen). When you heat the expanding mouse it gives a really great effect!

Then I made a chocolate bar. First I cut a piece of White Soft Finisch Cardstock 9 x 6 cm. for the bar and colored this piece with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I added 6 little squares measuring 2.1 x 2.1 cm that I colored with the same ink. It is so easy to make a paper chocolate bar. Wish it was that easy to make a real one 😉

And of course I had to use some Silk Microfine Glitter on this card! This time I used the stain die from the 1848 Puzzle page. It looks like spots on a cow. I first cut the stain pieces from white cardstock with clear double sided adhesive on top. I then remove the top sheet of the adhesive and colored the exposed adhesive with 661 Violet Silk Microfine Glitter. I then added the spots on the background piece of the card.

For the bottom of the chocolate bar I used a piece of paper in purple with white dots. This paper I used later on the background of the hole card. I also cut a banner (fitted fishtails 1694) from White Soft Finish Cardstock and stamped the sentiment “Cow’s it going?” from the farm collection (life it better on the farm CS221). This time I used embossing powder for the stamps. The background color is also distress ink Vintage Photo.

Hope you like it and see you all soon!!

A cute birth card

June 2, 2021

For a colleague of mine, I made this birth card. With the supercool Farm collection from Joset I made this congratulatory card. I saw the animals and immediately knew oh, I’m going to use them for a birth card because those animals are so cute!! I made them from soft finish cardstock and colored them with brushmarkers from winsor&newton. When the banner was finished there had to be a card around it and as if it had to be so, there was a blister of a sticky tape packaging on my table among all the other “junk” Then all of a sudden the idea was born!

The design paper I used for the flags and background is from Moda scrap “my little boy”, very suitable for a birth card. The paper is cut at 14.5x 14.5 cm and in the middle I have punched out a circle through which exactly the blister packaging can pass. Now I had a room where the pendulum fits.

For the base I used white cardstock, 15×15 cm and from the left side I punched a circle, just not quite so that it becomes a door. I made the closure by punching a die out of the planner essentials 4 twice and glued it together with both the front and the inside just over the edge. The clip has become such a convenient closure. On the right I made the text with the smallest set from the Planner Essentials 23 – Retro Alphabet Trio Set. On top of that, the sheep came out of the Farm collection. On the envelope I added “welcome little one” from the Life is better on the Farm stamp set.

In this photo you can see a little better how the closure is and how the banner is in it.

Isn’t it it cute???

Anyone who knows me a little, knows that I love banners in cards. It always makes it a little more cheerful. This time I’ve made a banner with the flags from the Planner Essentials 27 – Retro Number Trio Set and the farm animals of Joset between the words. It made me happy to make this card and hopefully I have brought you even more ideas on how to combine the different Elizabeth Craft Designs collections.

I am here for you

May 26, 2021

Hii All! It’s me again, Lisanne! This time I want to share a card who has to cheer up my dad. It is a small project, but small isn’t always bad!

A while ago I made a planner page with the Sidekick Essentials 13 (hexagon insert). All the little hexagons that fell out I safed in a box for using it later. This was the time to using is haha. So I glued some hexagons on my base, which is dies 1698. There are a lot of different sizes squares in it.

The whole background is paper from the Reminiscene Book 2. You can see I made three spots with hexagons in different sizes. These hexagons made me think about some honeycomb. So I made the Honey Bear (1727) with ofcourse honey.

Let’s take a closer look to the Honey Bear. I used the Soft Finish Cardstock so I can colour the bear with Distress Ink. You can choose to give the bear a bow or not. The bow is an accessories which I add later because at the end I missed some extra colour. This bow gives that colour I think. I made some highlights with some pens.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is I-am-here-for-you-8-969x1024.png

After the bear I want to make a beehive. So I dies the honey jar and turn this upside down. I put a little cord behind the hive and knotted this at the branch. This branch is a part of the tree from the Safari Colleciton.I really love this look! Ofcourse there are some bees at the hive.

At least I made a banner with the build your own sentiments stamp (cs139) and put this whole card at a brown card.

I hope I gave you some inspiration with this card. Thanks for taking a look at this post! And hopefully I see you soon!

Kind regards Lisanne

Glitter Princess

May 22, 2021

Hello every one! Today I make a slimline card with a cute little glitter princess. The Silk Microfine Glitter is a product that I used a lote in my creation, so also with this one.

At first is cut out a slimline card. One large and one a bite smaller. In the smaller one I made 3 squares. Used the 1698 stitched indented squares. On the picture I show on what sizes I cute out the squares. Hight of the card 20.5 cm. Each square is 4.5 cm. On the top and bottom 2 cm and between the 3 sqaures 1.5 cm. On the side of the sqaures 2 cm.

When you cute out the squares it look like this:

After that I made 3 blocks whit foam tape on the large slimline. The foam tape must fit behind the squares from the second slimline. In the blocks I put some sequin mix from 28 Lilac Lane. One the top of the blocks made a transparent sheet. So than you have 3 blocks whit shaker material. of course I choose purple and pink because I love that colors.

The second slimline I sprayed with distress oxide (kitsch flamingo, blueprint sketch). Sprayes from a little distrance. Than you have only splashes and not the hole background in the color.

After that you can glue the second slimline on top of the first. I used clear double sided adhesive. Because this is very strong on the trasparent sheet.

On top of the card a made a cute little princess with die 1790 (princess) and some details with 1798 (princess crown). The dress of the pricess used silk microfine glitter 656 Speckled Indigo. Love that color of course it is pink and purple. The details (crown, stars, letters) also used silk micofine glitter (619 fuchsia, 638 solar gold). The rest of the princess I colorize with distress ink ( blueprint sketch, picked raspberry, black soot, vintage photo, tattered rose). Details on the princess made with craft drops (cdm01 – metallic gold)

I put the princess in the middle of the slimline card. Under her feets the curl from the 1798 princess crown set. The rest of the details you can put them where you like them. In the coners of the card I made some pearls whit the craft drops.

I hope I inspire you to make a creation by yourself whit a lot of glitter and color!

Lovely greetz!

Hen en Rooster at the Farm

April 29, 2021

Hello everyone! Today is my first blog for the Elizabeth Design team. I hope I can inspire you to make a lot of creations with the beautiful dies that I used.

For this card I used the barn die that I cut out of the beautiful Worn Wood paper. For the wondows, doors and roof I used cardstock. To create the plant in de window I used the hay die also included in the Barn set. I cut the plant (hay) from Whute Soft Finish Cardstock and colored it with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. For the background I used a mask stencil to create the clouds and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks Oxide to color.

I cut and colored two more pieces of hay to add on each side of the barn and added little flowers from the Adventure Edges #1625 set. I colored the flowers with Wilted Violet, Fossilized Amber and Wild Honey Distress Ink. I love using the little flowers, they are so cute!

I made a frame with the Stitched Indented Rectangels #1697. I used the biggest die in the set and one size smaller. Lay them together on the paper and cut theme together. I adhered the frame using foam tape to create more dimension in the card.

After that, I colered the little cute hen and rooster. I also used Distress Inks for this (antique linnen, brushed corduroy, fossilized amber, fired brick, rusty hinge, mermaid lagoon, rustic wilderness). They are so cute in front of the barn. I also used foam tape to adhere them to the card so it looks like they are standign in front of the barn. Above the barn doors I added the sentiment “just chicken in” using black ink. The stamp is from thw “Life is better in the farm” set #CS221.

At last I wanted to decorating the top of the frame. For this I used the Jungle Leaves #1623. On the top of it I used some flowers from Floral 9 #1845. In the middle of the flowers I added the same little flowers from the Adventure Edges set.

At last I glue everything on a fitting card.

So this was my first blog and I hope it inspired you to make your own creation with the lovely farm dies!

Hopefully see you soon!

Lovely greetings Alice

The Fisherman

April 28, 2021

Hi All! Lisanne here again. I think a lot of you have dies from Joset’s collections. For this card I used a lot of different ones as I love mixing and matching them. I had so much fun creating this card!

Let me tell you how I created this card…

I started with the base. I cut one large stitched square using the Stitched Square (1698) die and colored it with Tumbled Glass and Tea Dye Distress Ink. This gives a picture of land and sky. For the sky I used a mask stencil from the Art Journal Special (SO39). This mask looks like waves, but I used this for clouds.

Than the funniest part of the whole card. Die cut, color and assemble all the pieces. I used Soft Finish Cardstock for this and colored with Diustress Inks. I made some bushes with the Forest Accessories (1688). At these bushes there are growing some flowers. Isn’t this looks cute?

The Fisherman stands in front of the bushes. He is very busy with fishing. The Fisherman is made from the Farmer dies and the Safari Accessories. The fishing rod is a die from the Camping Accessories. And at least the water pool is the mud pool from the Pig.

All the dies I colored with the Distress Ink. Below I will write all the used products. So for now I will thank you all for reading! See you soon!

Cards in candy colours

March 7, 2021

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here again today with another guest design team project share. For a couple of days we´ve had beautiful sunshiny weather here in Austria and I am very much in spring mood already. Thus, a set of easy-to-do, candy coloured cards is my project share for today.

The first card is very simple to do, but due to the used dies, still creates a lovely layered and detailed look.

Here are the steps for this card:

Step 1: Take a piece of each (yellow, light blue, grey, pink and light green) Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut one piece of the Junk Journal Extras dies in each colour.

Step 2: Now take the smaller flower dies from the Tropical Florals die set and die cut the flower with pink, yellow and grey Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step 3: Next adhere the die cut pieces onto a white card base overlappingly and arrange the flower to the upper left corner for decoration.

Step 4: Finally, take a piece of kraft carstock and heat emboss a sentiment with white embossing powder using one of the sentiment in the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 set. For additional decor, add a few craft drops next to the sentiment.

For the second card, you will additionally need a few stamp inks to create the background, but other than that, we are sticking to the same Tropical Flowers die set and the candy coloured cardstock selection.

Here are the steps to this card:

Step 1: Die cut a strip of paper with the Adventure Edges die and create a cloud background to a white card base with it by applying yellow and light pink ink using the die cut border as a stencil.

Step 2: After that apply some ink droplets with the light pink tone onto the background for a fun additional detail. Use a paint brush or a water tank brush for this purpose.


Step 3: Die cut two leaves and one flower with the Tropical Flowers die set from the same Soft Finish Cardstock tones used on the first card.

Step 4: Arrange the leaves and the flower onto the right lower corner of the card and adhere on place. Then add a stamped sentiment with black stamp ink and the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set.

Step 5: For finishing touches add a few Craft Drops to the background.

Also if you are not into pastel tones, feel free to try out this set in primary colours or in more neutral tones. Changing the cardstock colours will give you a totally different look!

I hope you enjoyed today´s card ideas and got inspired to play yourself! Have a great time crafting and see you again next month!
xxx, Sanna

Alcohol Ink Cards

February 26, 2021

Karen here today. I’ve seen quite a number of people playing with alcohol inks lately, so I decided to pull mine out. I’d forgotten how fun they are and how versatile the backgrounds are to use. Today’s post features two backgrounds I created and four cards using different designer product lines here at Elizabeth Craft Designs.

First thing I did was to create these two gorgeous backgrounds by dropping various colors of alcohol ink on a couple sheets of Yupo paper. I then moved it around with a straw and droppered on some rubbing alcohol.

I cut two strips of the blue background for this card that is matted on a card base and card front made from 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. I created an adorable Sea Turtle (designed by Joset) to put on the card and added some dark blue cardstock, washi tape and blue half pearls. The turtle is colored with Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn, Pine Needles, and Vintage Photo with Mermaid Lagoon bubbles. The sentiment is from the Splish Splash Sentiment stamps.

With the other piece of the blue background I added it crooked to this Christmas card. The beautiful girl image is designed by Charlene & Ilse and is from the Oh the Joy of Christmas stamps (as is the sentiment). I colored the girl with Copic markers

  • Clothes: B12, B14, B16, C1, C3
  • Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
  • Lips: E4, E93
  • Hair: E21, E23, E25
  • Eyes: YG03, YG17

I again added some blue cardstock as well as some diamond dots and some lace.

Next, I used a Fitted Circle die cut of the purple ink background to create this card with the Florals 4 set designed by Anita. How pretty are these flowers with just a smidge of Wilted Violet Distress Ink in the centers!?! The leaves are colored with Peeled Paint and the Blooming Branches leaves (that I cut in many pieces for “filler”) is colored with Mowed Lawn. The centers of the flowers are some stamen I got on Amazon. The card base is again 90 lb White Soft finish cardstock, topped with a Fitted Rounded Rectangle die cut matted on purple cardstock.

Last but not least, I created this card using the Celebrate stamps from Sue Smith. I heat embossed the sentiment using ranger gold embossing powder and added a couple hearts (also from the Celebrate Set) that I colored with green and purple markers. The card front is cut with a Stitched Indented Rectangle die.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen
