Hey Everyone! It’s EK, and today I decided to try something I have never tried before. I decided to try colored pencils coloring on 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. I was worried that the 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock‘s texture would create uneven coloring, but I am not going to lie, I am absolutely in love with how the texture adds to the overall coloring effect.
Join me as I create a underwater spring themed card using colored pencils.
Step One: Die cut the pieces you need from the Octopus, Seashells and Spring Basket die sets using 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Two: Color the die cut pieces using your colored pencils.
Step Three: Create a background for your colored die cuts. I used Distress Oxides in Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass, and Shaded Lilac plus some shimmer spray on a trimmed piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Attach the background to an A2 card frame using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Four: Using a combination of 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, Kids Choice Glue, and 3 dimensional tape, assemble the basket full of sea shells and adhere to the card frame. Adhere the die cut Octopus onto the card, letting his legs over lap the basket.
Step Five: Stamp your sentiment onto the card frame using blue ink. I used a combination of sentiments from both the Spring Sentiments stamp set and Splish Splash Sentiments stamp set.
Have you ever used colored pencils on ECD’s Soft Finish Cardstock? Did you enjoy the results as much as I did? Let us know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.
Emmy here today with my monthly inspiration post. And since Easter is only a few days away, I’ve decided to create an Easter card using the wonderful dies from Joset Designs.
Hi Crafty People! EK here today. I thought with Easter just a few days away, I thought I would share a wall hanging decoration I made for the wall next to the Easter Day kids’ table. We are having several different families come together this year since none of us can get together with our born-into families, and we are going to have a table of eight elementary school kids sitting together. My children and I have been busy making decorations for the house and I realized that the wall was looking just a little bleak, so I came up with the idea of making this wall decoration.
The inspiration of for this project started with a frame that Els made a few weeks back during her Technique Friday with Els Assembling the Happy Frame XL, where Els decorated just two of the side panels with stamps while leaving the other two bare.
It won’t be long before the tulips are blooming and the Easter Bunny will be hiding eggs! Good Morning, this is Selma Stevenson. It is time to start working on Easter cards since Easter is just one month away (April 1). Today I incorporated tulips along with a cute bunny to create this card.
Our Elizabeth Craft Designs Design Team have been busy throughout the month creating amazing cards using some of our newly released stamps and dies.

Valentine’s Day is in the past, but this card created by Samantha Klaebe is definitely worth a second look. Look at the clever way Samantha used the scallop edge die from the Valentines Edges die set and the heart shape from the Puzzle Heart die set. This idea can be used with many different shapes in place of the heart. Samantha also used the Love Sentiments.

Luciana here with another little tutorial ^-^
This time I have prepared a cute paperclip that you can use for several purposes: your planner, books, but also as an embellishment for a card, a parcel or a gift. Very useful, isn’t it ?
I used the sweet Bunny and the Spring Basket dies designed by Joset van de Burgt. You will also need White Soft Finish Cardstock and some colored ink pads.
