Magic Halloween

September 29, 2023

Hi It is Els here with a new Blogpost. I love Halloween so I decided to make a Halloween card this time. I hope you will enjoy it and give it a try. I will place the images on my blog!

Finished card.

These are all the part you need.

Cut a piece of black paper at 71/2 – 11 and fold in half, your card is then 5 1/2 – 71/2. The striped paper is 51/4-71/4. The purple is 5-7 and I used the edge die to cut it on both sides. I cut a label out of the paper ( the one with the 2023). Distress the edges, and Ink them. Then glue them on top of each other.

Cut Flowers, leaves, and a spiral roll, then shape the flowers, and glue them together, now you can put some stamen in, and I did some copper cream on it to let them shine.

Place the cute scarecrow, and then you can place the flowers.

When you placed all the flowers, you can adhere that cute little wizard and his broom. He can sit on top of the flowers. Place a pumpkin and some black Mica flakes to finish it. I cut the spiral rolls and when you roll them up you make those roses. On my blog I will place the Images I used and the template for the rose.

Hello, Autumn

September 21, 2023

Hello, my crafty friends

Rajni Chawla here from Timeless Creations. Today it’s my turn to inspire you all with Elizabeth Craft Designs’ latest, Seasonal Classics Collection. It is a collection full of awesomeness with lots of flowers, foliage, birdhouse, Christmas fun, and lots more. Again I have 2 cards to inspire you. I have mixed and matched 3 die sets to create these beautiful fall cards.

Here is my first card.

I don’t know why, but I am addicted to using some frame or the other and use it as a backdrop for most of all the floral bouquets that I make for my handmade cards. And I love them for sure. This time I used the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set to create the slimline frame to showcase this beautiful fall wreath on the card front. I simply joined two die cuts by overlapping them and hid that under the wreath which I created using a die cut from the Fitted Circle die Set.

The circle die cut is inked using Wild Honey Distress ink and the sentiment stamped is from Seasonal Sentiments. The foliage used is from Floral Greenery 1 and Floral Foliage 1. I have used archival inks to color all the leaves.

The beautiful Sunflowers are created using Floral 26 and the wreath is made using Floral Foliage 1.

The tiny white filler is from Floral Minis. Make a slit between flower petals, glue, and overlap one petal to make it 5 or 4 petal flowers as per your choice…… that’s simple!!

Here are some more pictures showing the detailing on the flower petals and foliage. It really made the flowers look more lively.

Here is my second card for inspiration….similar supplies were used but quite a different look. I loved this one too.

The background is distressed in ombre and embossed using an embossing folder. I have used the largest of the Stitched Indented Rectangles to create the window. The birdhouse and the bucket are created using Floral Foliage 1.

List of supplies used from Elizabeth Craft Designs:

Sweet Hydrangeas

September 7, 2023

Hello, my sweet friends!!

Today I am showcasing another beautiful floral die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs. My card today is inspired by a card that I saw on Pinterest long long back. It was something I always wished to create but couldn’t try due to some reason or the other. Thanks to the ECD Florals 2 die set which enabled me to try my hands on these beautiful Hydrangeas. The foliage used is from the same die set.

Here is the top angle of the card.

Since, I wanted to highlight the florals, I kept the card base simple and easy. Once again, the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set was on rescue. I used the largest 2 dies to create the frame. The center window was created using a decorative die from the Book Box die set.

I wanted to add a little shine and glitter to the florals, so I applied a thin coat of crystal lacquer and sprinkled glitter dust.

Here are a few more close-up shots of the floral bouquet. The sentiment is stamped with blue archival ink and is from the With Love Sentiment stamp. Beautiful hand-cut butterflies adorn and complete the card.

If you like to learn how I created these Hydrangeas, drop by my Instagram and keep an eye on the free Live Tutorial for the same which I will be announcing soon.

Here is the complete list of supplies used in the above projects. All the supplies used from Elizabeth Crafts Designs are linked directly for easy purchases.

Hugs and Kisses Card and Bon Bon Boxes

August 4, 2023

Good day, my dear friends!!

Once again it”s Rajni Chawla, here to inspire you all with Elizabeth Craft Designs. For today’s inspiration, I have a beautiful card and 2 coordinating treat boxes. In my projects, I am showcasing a great variety of dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs like Indented frame dies, floral dies, foliage dies and box dies.

The double-layered frame was cut using Stitched Indented Rectangle die set to display the floral bouquet which I created using Florals 5. The beautiful white daisies turned out so beautiful and elegant.

The foliage added in the backdrop was created using Elegant Leaves 1. The leaves were cut using floral paper, inked using Archival inks in shades of green, and shaped using a stylus.

For the flower centers, I have used locally bought tiny seed beads, using Glossy Accent.

The sentiment comes from With Love Sentiments stamp set. It was stamped on the banner which I cut using a banner die from Book Box die set. The pattern paper used is from my stash and the bird is fussy cut from the paper.

Now comes, the cute Bon Bon box that I coordinated with the cards. The Bon Bon Box Large die creates a beautiful easy to assemble box with a perfect size for treats. I loved it so much that I created 2 boxes. One for the cookies and the other for the sweets.

I decorated one box with the bow and the other box using a bow and the leftover daisies and hung tags threaded with some beads from the stash.

Supplies from Elizabeth Craft Designs:

  • Florals 5
  • pattern Paper from my stash
  • Leaf Green, Olive Green, and Black Archival Inks
  • Dimensional Tape
  • Liquid Glue, Glossy Accent

For more details on the projects, I have created a small video. Here is the link to the video.

Smell the Flowers

April 20, 2023

Hi Everyone, It’s Els here and it is my turn again to give you some inspiration. I made this card with the Perfume Bottle so you can also use it for a Mother’s day card. Below you will find the step by step instructions. Have fun creating this one!

First I print the Image on the Soft finished cardstock, this is ideal to print on. Then cover the bottle with Glossy Accent so that it shines like glass. Let this dry. In the mean time you can die cut all the flowers and leaves you want and colour them.

Also stamp de bee 2x. From 1 bee, cut the wings and put glitter on it. Let this dry and once dry, colour the center black. The other bee you can colour him yellow and black, then glue the wings on top of the whole bee. Adhere your card on a mat of red cardstock and distress it.

When the Glossy accent is dry you can decorate the silverware on the bottle with silver glitter glue. When that is drying you can shape all the leaves and flowers and you can put stamens in the center of the flowers. Then place the whole card on a basic card of 5″ x 7″.

Now you can take your leaves and flowers and you can make a nice arrangement on your card. I also placed a seam binding bow on it and at last you can place the bee on top of the bottle and adhere the stamp. In de right corner I used a stencil.

Close up…………….

I hope you like the card and that you’ll giving it a try too!

Welcome Home

March 9, 2023

Hi Everyone, Els Schutte here today. It’s March so time for another blog post.

This time I made a Welcome Home card using the beautiful Florals 9 and 14. I hope It will inspire you to make a card like this for a friend or new neighbor!

Below you will find the step by step instructions. Have fun creating this card.

I took the page with the text on it, cut it at 8 1/2″ x 11″ and printed this image on it. I also found some nice images in the paper pad and cut them out! ( see image)

Take a base card of 11″ x 7 1/2″ and fold it in half. Now your base card is 5 1/2″ x 7 1/2″. Put some foam dots on the back and glue the big image on the base card. Then glue all the other parts behind it.

Cut some flowers and leaves using Florals 9 and 14. I die cut 3 big, 3 small and 3 center pieces for 1 flower and 4 leaves.

Cut 13 of the Florals 9 flower and color them in the color you like.

Color all other flowers in the color you like and shape them. Once shaped, glue them together.

Make a nice composition on your card with the flowers you made. Stamp also the key with Versamark and put gold embossing powder on it and melt it with the heat tool.

And now your card is ready! I hope you like this card and that you will give it a try. Without the key you can use it also for Birthdays and other occasions.

Christmas Flowers

September 9, 2022

Hello everyone! Irina here with a Christmas card. I always like clean and simple cards. My favorite color is blue, but I also like green very much and I thought it would be fun to create a green Christmas card. On this blog I show you how I created this card.

Start with white cardstock from 5 x 5 inch.

Pick a stencil you like and use a soft grey ink. I used Hickory smoke oxide ink.

My stencil was to short, so I had to flip it over as you can see on the picture below.

For the middle squares use:

Black cardstock 3 3/4 inch and green cardstock 3 1/2 inch.

Glue the black and green together and centre it on your base.

Take a piece of hempcord and use tape to add it in your card.

Diecut your flowers. I used Florals 12 ( 1873 )

Only color the leaves with ink or markers.

Shape your flowers and glue them together.

Now it’s time to glue the flowers and leaves on your card.

I thought it would be fun to use one of the Circles with Sentiments stamps. ( CS276)

Last but not least, take a piece of white cardstock from 11 x 5.5 inch, fold it in the middle. Now glue your card on this base and your Christmas card is finished.

Hope you like it!! Thanks for watching en reading this blog! See you next time!

Xoxo Irina

See-through Flower frame

July 12, 2022

Hello everyone, Irina here with a flower project today! I started working with the awesome shadow box frames in combination with acetate, stencils and paper flowers. I think acetate is so great to use. Enjoy reading.

Start with the small shadow box frame. Trim them at 5 inch (or the size you prefer).

Glue them together.

Trim the acetate at 5 x 5 inch (or take the size of your frame)

Put some structure paste on the acetate with a stencil.

Glue the acetate behind your frame with tape.

Die cut some flowers and branches and color them. I have used distress ink.

Glue the paper flowers together.

Arrange them on the frame.

Maybe you want to add a sentiment. I didn’t add a sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by the blog. Untill next time.

Xoxo Irina
