Karen here today. The Owl Die from Elizabeth Craft Designs is just too cute! He makes a great and fast Valentine’s Day card when paired with the Peek-A-Boo Love Dies!
To create this card:
Cut a vertical card base from 90 lb White Soft Finish Card stock at 4-1/4″ x 11″ and fold in half.
Cut a piece of the Worn Wood Paper at 4″x5-1/4″ for the card front.
Die cut the Owl Die pieces from 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. To make assembly easier, cut the tummy, nose, eye pieces and feet with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive on the back.
Color the wings and tummy with Distress Oxide in Stormy Sky, the body, face and ears with Distress Ink in Tea Dye, and the outer part of the eye in Distress Ink in Antique Linen. Color the second layer of eyes with a light blue Copic maker and the inner part with Copic dark grey. The feet and nose are colored with Copic Orange.
Cut the Love die from the Peek-a-Boo Love dies from Brown Cardstock and adhere to the card front.
Die cut the “center” of the love die from the Mystical Winter Collection.
Add the owl and a few diamond dots to the front of the card.
Don’t forget to save the inside of the O for the word “LOVE”!
I think now more than ever we need to reach out to those we love. Not for any special reason, just to share love. I thought this might be a fun way to do it! We get to make a beautiful bright moon inside the ornament, create a stencil so we have a sweet spray of stars and we get to stamp a super special message.
Here’s how you can do it, too…..
Form a 5 x 7” tent fold card base from navy cardstock.
Cut a 4 x 6” panel from navy cardstock. Die cut the Star Spray from scrap cardstock and use as a stencil. Lightly stencil the stars across the panel with Distress Oxide Brushed Corduroy.
Die cut the flourished ornament and the flourished moon from white cardstock which has had Double Sided Adhesive adhered to the front side.
Remove the release paper and one at a time thermal emboss the flourished ornament with Forever Platinum and then the flourished moon with Brushed Silver. So nice and bright!
Stamp the sentiment (Awwww!) on white cardstock with Night Sky ink and die cut with the smallest Fitted Rectangle. Die cut the smallest Stitched Rectangle from navy cardstock and adhere them together.
Mount the gilded ornament and moon as shown on the stenciled panel (the flourishes can hang over the edge of the panel!). Mount the sentiment panel on the panel with 3D adhesive squares overlapping the ornament.
Mount the stenciled panel on the card base with 3D adhesive squares.
Send to someone you love!
Be kind, be calm, stay safe. You are loved! Happy creating, Suzanne

Hi there! It’s Suzanne here today with a fun baby card for you!
Oh, my. There is nothing like a puppy! Puppy eyes are guaranteed to melt any heart. (But really it’s a little plan on their part to get what they want –– and it works!) You can’t get mad at this wee fellow when he knocks the frame askew!
Here’s Joset’s sweet Dog die set combined with some A Way With Words classics! It’s a celebration of Mark’s, Joset’s brother, new puppy who is to die for (the puppy that is 🙂 …)!
Here is how you can make this card for a new baby puppy dog!
Hi there. It’s Suzanne here today to share a sweet card.

Hi there! It’s Suzanne here today with a card full of love.
There are many ways you could make this card, just by changing the coordinating paper. This design was created for a younger person, but I challenge you to make one for someone in your life by changing up the colours and patterns –– I’d love to see them! Go ahead and share them on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Family Facebook Page!
Hi there! It’s Suzanne here today. As soon as I saw the Sliders and Spinners die set I knew that I needed to make this card. Here it is at last! Little bear is looking up waiting for the love to come his way.

Hi Artlets! It’s Suzanne here today with a sweet summer card guaranteed to cheer anyone up. What’s not to love about summer (if it’s not too hot for you)? Choose some happy paper that feels like the season and start creating!
We all need baby cards at some point! But this set is so much more. It’s Suzanne here today with an easy card that, with slight changes, can suit any little person’s colour palette!
Instead of the butterflies, you can substitute the Stars Spray stencil design or the Heart Spray stencil design, which is paired with paw prints. Oh, anyone have a new puppy? Pair Baby love with the Paw Prints Spray stencil. Awwww!
Our dog was a champion before she retired and came to live with us. Her ribbons were fabulous – a pleated rosette around a big padded circle with gold printing at the top, long tails cascading below. They serve as an inspiration for today’s project: Ribbons to make for friends to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion or give as an award to someone who has triumphed over illness or adversity.
I chose Live, Laugh, and Love – A Way With Words dies that are longtime favorites. ‘Live’ goes to the friend who is five-years cancer-free. ‘Laugh’ goes to the friend who brings smiles no matter what is going on. ‘Love’ goes to my husband.
But you don’t have to choose the same dies or sentiments! It’s very easy to customize this project.
Decide what you want to say and size the circles and fishtail ribbons accordingly. Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words collection offers so many options.
