Winter Wishes Snowman card

January 7, 2021

Hello and Happy New Year 2021! It´s Sanna here again with my January project share. I wanted to create a winter themed greeting card for this month and used the cute Jack Frost die by Joset with Planner Essentials Christmas Figures tree die to create the winter scene.

Here are the steps to the card:

Step 1: Die cut a strip of white paper with Adventure Edges to create a DIY stencil from paper. Use it to ink the background could pattern onto a white card base.
Step 2: Apply a Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut the tree from Planner Essentials 34 Christmas Figures die set. Make sure the adhesive is on the backside when die cutting the whole tree, but pointing towards you when die cutting the filigrane tree die piece. You will need the adhesive on top of be able to add glitter later.
Step 3: Now die cut the Snowflake from white Soft Finish Cardstock (also add an adhesive sheet on the back here too for easier adhering). Also die cut a few snowflakes using the Snow Globe die set, but this time again make sure the adhesive is on top.


Step 4: Using Distress Inks, apply color to the tree and the snowman parts. I used tones: Gathered Twigs, Old Paper, Black Soot, Evergreen Bough, Salty Ocean and Spiced Marmalade.
Step 5: Apply Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter onto the filigrane tree piece as well as the snowflakes.


Step 6: Adhere the green inked tree onto the card base and attach the filigrane, glittered tree piece on top. Now build the snowman together and adhere all pieces on place.
Step 7: Now use the For You stamp set by Sue Smith in combination with Joset´s Winter Sentiments to create the sentiment: “Winter Wishes” and stamp that onto the bottom of the card with black stamp ink. Apply the glittered snowflakes onto the background and the card is done.

I´ve again recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch. I hope it gives you an even better idea on each and every step of this card.

I hope you enjoy this little card tutorial and get inspired to create fun wintery cards yourself! Wishing you all a nice January!!

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna

Art Journal Collection Cardmaking Joset Designs Silk Microfine Glitter

Glitter & Templates

December 30, 2020

Karen here today, sharing a couple cards I made using Silk Microfine Glitter and the templates that are part of the Art Journal Collection. I also used some of the pretty papers and dies that are available here at Elizabeth Craft Designs. Now that Christmas is over, I thought I’d create a couple cards for Valentine’s Day!

LoVe the sweet Honey Bear die! He’s the cutest! I colored him with Distress Inks in Tea Dye and Antique Linen and a couple Copic markers. The Scalloped Heart die has a Fitted Heart Cut out of the center and is cut from Kraft cardstock. I then covered it with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive and used a stencil from the Pattern Stencil Pack. (The stencil really sticks – so do this with some caution!) With the stencil in place, I put down some Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and then CAREFULLY removed the stencil and put down Antique Silver. Here’s a close-up of that pretty glitter.

The sentiment is from the Bear Hugs set and is cut with a Stitched Circle Die. The background paper is from the Reminiscence Book.

The next card used the Florals of Winter dies. The “edge” die is covered with Silk Microfine Glitter in Cool Diamond (with White Soft Finish Cardstock – 90 lb) and Silver using a different stencil. The flowers are also from the Florals of Winter dies and are painted with the ECD Watercolors. Again, the sentiment is from Bear Hugs and is cut with the Diagonal Stitched Fishtails die. The background paper is from the Mystical Winter Collection.

Thank you for stopping by!

Craftily yours, Karen

Merry Christmas

November 29, 2020

Hello & Welcome to my post today! Samantha here and today I wanted to share this Christmas card using the Elegant Christmas Tree die. This is one of my favourite Christmas themed dies, and while I love paper piecing I often find it overwhelming with intricate dies like this. Colouring is a perfect way to get a similar effect – it’s also much more quicker and less messy!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Using alcohol ink friendly cardstock die cut both parts of the Elegant Christmas tree die. Place the detailed Christmas tree onto the Christmas tree base. Use a pencil to trace the details on to the Christmas tree base.

Step 2: Select your Copic markers (RV00/RV02/RV04/RV06/RV09) to colour each individual detail traced onto the Christmas tree. Use as eraser to rub out the pencil lines.

Step 3: Continue to colour until all the details are coloured in.

TIP: No need to colour within the lines – it is best to colour slightly out side of each lines.

Step 4: Adhere the die cut detailed Christmas tree onto the coloured in Christmas tree base. Next adhere the Christmas tree onto a pink card base (Card Measurement: 10.5cm x 14.5cm).

Step 5: (Optional) Add machine stitched details.

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 glitter card to die cut the small stars from the Elegant Christmas Tree die.

Adhere the larger star to the top of the tree and embellish the tree with the rest of the smaller stars.

Step 6: Die cut a circle using pattern paper, stamp the sentiment – trim to create a half circle. Adhere the sentiment onto the card base.

Step 7: Embellish card with a twine bow and sequins. Adhere the card front to an A6 card base.

A fun, bright Christmas card without the mess! Hope this inspires you to try it out yourself.-

Happy Crafting!

A Flourished Christmas

November 28, 2020

Hi Friends! It’s EK and I am popping in with a trio of cards featuring A Way with Words Flourished Christmas Minis 2. These three cards were all using the same techniques but ended up with different looks due to the different A Way With Words sentiments I picked.

Step One: Using 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock, blend water soluble ink over the paper. I used Distress Oxides. Splatter wet ink over the cardstock. Add a spray of Shimmer Spray.

Step Two: Repeat step one with two other pieces of cardstock. I used the new trio of Distress Oxides, Rustic Wilderness, Crackling Campfire, and Speckled Egg to create these looks.

Step Three: Die cut the A Way With Words Flourished Christmas Minis 2 out of Clear Double Side Adhesive Sheets. (I have recently mastered Clear Double Sided Adhesive die cut and adhere without applying the sheet to a piece of cardstock prior!)

Step Four: Peel off the brown side of the Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet and adhere it to your project. Then Peel off the slick top paper.

Step Five: Adhere a substance to the Clear Double Sided Adhesive. I used Nuvo Gilding Flakes.

Step Six: Using a stiff brush, rub off the excess substance.

Step Seven: Repeat steps five-six with the other cardstocks.

Step Eight: Die cut your cardstock and adhere the pieces to A2 card frames using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive. I used both Stitched Indented Rectangle die set and Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set.

Step Nine: Using more Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheets, die cut A Way With Words sentiments. I used A Way With Words Peace on Earth, Merry Christmas, and Cheers.

Step Ten: Peel and stick the sentiments to the card frames.

Step Eleven: Add Silk Microfine Glitter to the sentiments. I used Sea Glass Silk Microfine Glitter for the sentiment and Cook Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter for the star.

I used Bright Cranberry Silk Microfine Glitter for the flourish card.

I used Imperial Garnet Silk Microfine Glitter for the sentiment on tree card, Sea Glass Silk Microfine Glitter for the ornaments, and Solar Gold Silk Microfine Glitter for the star.

Step Twelve: Finally, add Craft Drops to the cards. I used Pearl Rose on the orange card.

I used both Metallic Gold and White for the Speckled Egg card.

I used Metallic Gold and Pearl Olive Craft Drops on the green card.

Thank you for checking out my trio of Christmas cards today. Let us know your favorite one in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting!

Summer Strawberries

October 25, 2020

Hello and Welcome! Samantha here today, sharing this fun summer strawberry card. This is one of Elizabeth Craft Designs new releases which I paired up with the Beach Sentiments stamp set. I’ve had glimpses of hot summer weather and it’s put me in the mood to share this inspiration with you.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Cut a card front using light pink card measuring 10.5cm x 15.5cm.

Step 2: Die cut the strawberries die with the following pieces of card stock:

Stems: Light green card

Leaves: Dark blue/green card

Strawberries: Various shades of pink card and corrugated pink cardstock

Strawberry Leaf: Dark Green corrugated card

Flowers: Light pink card

Step 3: Arrange and adhere the green stems onto the card front, leaving room for the sentiment.

Step 4: Stamp the sentiment using black ink.

Step 5: Optional: Add machine stitched detail.

Step 6: Arrange and adhere the 3x large leaves onto the card front.

Step 7: Use foam tape to adhere the strawberries/Strawberry leaves onto the card front – arranged in a way that they appear to be dangling off their leaves.

Step 8: Embellish the card with the light pink flowers, a few sequins and a pink twine bow. Adhere the card front to an A6 card base.

Step 9: Lastly, adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to a small piece of 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 glitter card to die cut the small circles that adhere to the middle of each flower.

It’s a very happy card and the pink strawberries (versus red) are a nice compliment to the blue/greens in this card. Hope you enjoyed my card tutorial today.

Happy Crafting!

Have A Magical Christmas

October 19, 2020

Hello friends,

It’s Sandy Diller here with you today. I have a fun, quick and easy card to share. I just got my new Sue Smith Stamps and as soon as I saw this one I immediately thought of one of the cute fairy dies from Joset Designs to use along with it. Just add a Santa hat and you’re good to go.

This is a 5″ X 6.5″ card so I used the largest Stitched Indented Rectangle on the front.

After stamping and embossing I was ready for the cute little fairy.

Using the Fairy 1 die set – I cut, colored and assembled the fairy and then added a Santa hat from the Santa Claus die set.

To finish off this card I cut out some glittered stars and a magic wand. It is still blank on the inside so a personal message can be added.

Have a magical day,

Sandy

Heavenly

October 6, 2020

Good morning!
I am excited to share my next creation for Elizabeth Craft Designs!
I am IN LOVE with the new Summer Art paper line and I finally got a chance to create with it….the designs and colors are outstanding!

To create this layout:

Step 1 – cover both sides of your paper with clear gesso ( I used the Summer Art Collection)
Step 2 – mix texture paste with a coordinating color of colorant (I chose tainted love teal from Lindys Stamp gang)
Step 3 – use your favorite ECD stencil and the colored texture paste approximately 2.5″ or 6 cm from the left hand side of your paper (I used the waves stencil)
Step 4 – while texture paste is still wet sprinkle Silk Microfine Glitter at top the image (I used copper)

Step 5 – place two pieces of cheesecloth (1 at least 12 inches or 30.5 cm long and one about 8 inches or 10cm ling) in a resealable freezer bag and color with your favorite mist or powder. (I used Lindy’s magical powders in Cowabunga copper and Hags Wart Orange). Remove from bag with tweezers or wearing gloves and dry with your heat gun
Step 6 – adhere the cheesecloth as shown in photos

Step 7 – fussy cut two small flowers, one large flower cluster, a turtle and a set of leaves from the paper and ink the edges

Step 8 – die cut three of your favorite ECD flowers (I used florals 2, florals 1, and florals 3) and assemble remembering to ink the edges
Step 9 – die cut an elegant ornament, palm tree and stem from the Summer Journal Special and an anchor, then ink the edges

Step 10 – grab your favorite chipboard title and heat emboss twice, on the third embossing sprinkle silk microfine glitter into the while you are heat setting the embossing powder. I do not normally take photos in direct sunlight but I wanted to share the glitteriness of the effect
Step 11 – create a photo mat, ink the edges of the mat as well as the background paper. Adhere everything as shown and add some seed beads!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Birthday Happiness

October 5, 2020

Karen here! I am loving the fun stamps designed by Sue for Elizabeth Craft Designs. They are a great pairing with the fun floral dies designed by Anita and the background dies designed by Joset. It’s so cool that all of these fun products go together so well.

To create this card, first cut an 8-1/2×11″ piece of teal cardstock in half, scored and folded it to create a card base. Add 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to the back of a piece of 90lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut it with the Floral Burst Background die. Adhere this to the cardbase. On another piece of white cardstock, stamp “Birthday Happiness” from the For You Stamps and cut it with a Stitched Rounded Rectangle die. Cut the bottom off near the bottom of the stamp. Add a pink cardstock border and adhere it to the card. Outline the stamp with a Copic BG53. Add some fun lace at the bottom of the stamp.

Next, create the flowers by die cutting the Florals 1 Die with Double Sided Adhesive and using Petal Pink Silk Microfine Glitter from the Bloom Set. Dab the edges into Versamark Ink and gold embossing powder and heat set. (Els did a fun video showing this technique, and I was super inspired. Find the video here!) Use Metallic Gold Craft Drops for the centers, and add the fun flowers to the card!

I created a second card using the Florals 4 Dies with a NEW stamp by Sue for Christmas that is COMING SOON! On this card, I used Cool Diamond and Forest Green Silk Microfine Glitter along with the Organic Triangle Background Die.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen
