I am excited to share my next layout I created using lots of goodies from Elizabeth Craft Designs!
To create this layout:
Step 3 – use another stencil and paint in the same area as the first stencil (I used a stencil from the Summer Journal Special)
Step 4 – Use light mat gel and another stencil and while the gel is still wet apply some silk microfine glitter (I used the Make Your Mark Stencil and Midnight Blue glitter)
Step 5 – die cut, ink and assemble 15 flowers ( I used the Florals 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9)
Step 6 – use some craft drops on a chipboard title (I used gold)
Step 7 – assemble as shown and add some art stones, seed beads and gems

Hello everyone, my name is Joyce Schmidt design team member for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I was putting away the black, orange and purple of the Halloween season and was playing around with the Fantasy Florals in preparation for Christmas. I found this Grapevine wreath in my stash and decided it needed Poinsettias made from the Floral #2 (1774).
First, I wanted the wreath to look snowy. I painted a mixture of glue and acrylic paint onto the wreath so I could stick the chunky shimmery glitter. After painting it I sprinkled the glitter, I let it sit to dry.
I die cut all four of the shapes from the Floral #2 from red cardstock, and one set of each from green cardstock. Since poinsettias are not really a flower, rather a bunch of leaves, I only used the flower die not the leaves from this set. I used the larger of the 4 dies to act as my leaves.
I shaped the flowers on my foam mat with the back of my Elizabeth Craft Designs tweezers. Just for added dimension I distressed the edges of the petals.
After layering the flowers together slightly off set using my Kid’s Choice glue, I inserted gold stamens in the middle. Using hot glue, I placed the flowers onto the wreath. At this point it looked a little bare.
I got out my Trio of Leaves die (1464) and die cut some of these in green cardstock. I was the perfect touch to “fill in the holes”.
I hope you will try this project. It is very easy and can be adapted to use with any of the Elizabeth Craft Designs florals, for any season.
Feel free to watch our process video on this project HERE.
Thank you and I hope you have a great week.

Elizabeth Craft Designs Supplies –
Hi there! Karen here today. I only recently got my hands on the amazing new flowers here at Elizabeth Craft Designs. They are so much fun to play with! In my post today, I show two fun examples of cards using the new flowers.
Here’s how I created this fun card.
- Cut a 8-1/2″x11″ piece of Soft Finish Cardstock in half length-wise and score/fold in the middle to create a top-fold card base.
- Die cut a card front using the Stitched Rectangle Dies (Patterned orange cardstock)
- Cut two strips of green paper at 1/2″ and 3/4″ by 5″ and add them to the left side of the card front. (I adhered mine just inside the rectangle stitching)
- Die cut a large Fitted Circle and trim a bit from one side, and layer it over the green strips.
- Die cut a small and medium size of Florals 1 from light yellow cardstock and ink edges with Dried Marigold Distress Ink. Die cut the leaf from the Florals 1 from light green cardstock and ink the edges with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.
- Shape the flower and leaf. (For the flower, I use a simple foam pad with a stylus and shape in circular motions on the back-side and then “punch” into the middle on the front. I then work the flower and leave a bit with my fingers until I like the look of it.)
- Add the flower and a sentiment to the card front.
As a fun embellishment, I put some of the White Craft Drops on a piece of “waste” release sheet from the Double Sided Adhesive. When dry, I color them with a Copic Marker, and then they can be glued onto the project – either as a flower center or just an embellishment.
The next card was made with a FuN sentiment stamp, For You.
On this card, I stamped that amazing sentiment and cut it out with Fitted Circles. In this card, I added the circles and strips before die cutting the card front, and I did not shape those fun flowers from the Florals 3 set. I think these flowers are super cute just flat as embellishments too.
Thank you for stopping by today!
Craftily yours, Karen

Welcome to our Monthly Designers challenge! This month’s theme is all about flowers. We asked our designer to create some beautiful projects using our new Paper Flowers dies or any of our other “Floral” themed stamps. Our designers did a great job and I can’t wait to show to their beautiful work!
First project is from Annette Green who created this beautiful little box using the new Pizza Box die and the Florals 4. Love the beautiful Fall colors she picked for the flowers and leaves. For the box itself Annette used the Worn Wood paper pack. Make sure to check out Annette’s blog HERE for more info.
EK Gorman created this beautiful flower card using a collection of flowers stamps. She used the “A Field of Flowers” set and the “Patterns 1”. Love the brown and yellow color combination. For more info on how to create this card, check out EK’s Blog HERE.
Joyce Schmidt created a beautiful frame using the Florals 1 die set in combination with the Elegant Ornament die. Love these 2 together. She also used the Berry Branch and cut this one up in small pieces to decorate the flower arrangement. Joyce often shows her work in videos and on her Facebook page. Make sure to check it out HERE.
Anita Izendoor, the designer of the Paper Flower Collection joined us this month with a beautiful floral slimline card. Just like Joyce, she decided to combine the Elegant Ornament die with the Florals 1 set. Such a beautiful combination. For the background she used the Worn Wood paper pack. To see more of Anita’s beautiful work, make sure to check out her Blog HERE.
We’re so happy to have some Strawberries dies back in our collection, this time just a little bit smaller than our previous release set. Tina Guigui created this lovely slimline card. She colored the strawberries so pretty they almost look real. The “let love bloom” (Zen Sentiments set) is a perfect choice for this card. If you would like to re-create this card, make sure to check out Tina’s Blog HERE.
Next card is from Sandy Diller who used the Color my Flowers clear stamp set in combination with the new Floral Birst Background die by Joset Designs. I love how she used the background die here as the front of the card. For the sentiment she used the Build Your Own Sentiments 1. For more info on how to create this beautiful card, make sure to check out Sandy’s blog HERE.
Joseph Nguyen joined us this month with this beautiful flower arrangement using a combination of dies. Joseph used the Florals 4 and colored the petals centers very lightly in blue. He followed this color scheme with a beautiful patterned background and some small blue embellishments on the berries (Berry Branch). Some extra leaves completed his card. For more inspiration, make sure to follow Joseph’s Facebook page HERE.
Katelyn Grosart created this stunning wreath using the Florals 2 and Stamen Flowers die sets. She used White Soft Finish Cardstock to cut her flowers and leaves and colored them using Distress Inks. Love the pastel colors she picked. For more info on how to create the flowers, check out Katelyn’s Blog HERE.
Last project is this cute card created by Karen Ostergard showing you how fun it is to use the flower dies as embellishments. She created a Hoppy Birthday card using the oh so cute Frog die set. For more info on how to create this card, check out Karen’s Blog post HERE.
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Just For You Gift Box.
Today’s project is an exciting one as it is giving you a sneak peek of the new Flower Collection designed by Anita Izendoorn. To create my Just For You Gift Box, I’ve used a couple of the dies from the new Flower Collection as well as a die from Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my gift box at home.
Step One. You’ll need a piece of sturdy cardboard. I used a piece that had a white coating on the top. Die cut the Pizza Box, from the Pizza Box die out of the cardboard.
Step Two. Die cut the scalloped square from the Pizza Box die out of a piece of vellum.
Step Three. Choose a piece of patterned paper. Die cut the flower cut out from the Pizza Box die out of the patterned paper. Ink the edges of the cut out piece using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Four. Choose a piece of coordinating patterned paper that goes with patterned paper you just used to die cut the flower cut out. Die cut the 2 1/2″ circle from the Pizza Box die out of the coordinating patterned paper. Die cut the stitched circle from the Pizza Box die out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of both circles using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Five. Die cut two of the single Ginko leaves once out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the remaining Ginko leaf twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Lightly blend Shabby Shutter Distress Ink using a blending tool with foam over all four leaves.
Step Six. From the Words 2 – Thinking of You die , you’ll need the For You Words. Die cut the words out of the same patterned paper that you die cut the flower cut out from.
Step Seven. Assemble your pizza box.
Step Eight. Adhere the scalloped square to the top of the pizza box. Adhere the flower cut out square to the middle of the scalloped square.
Step Nine. Adhere the stitched circle to the 2 1/2″ circle. Foam square the 2 1/2″ circle to the middle of the flower cut out square. Adhere the four Ginko leaves as desired on the left hand side of the circles.
Step Ten. To finish the gift box, adhere the For You words to white stitched circle as desired.
Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my For You Gift Box.
