Stand Up Helper


Fun in the Sun

June 19, 2015

ECD Sun Candy Spiegel5Hi, it’s Candy Spiegel here for my last post (with the exception of the Designer’s Challenge at month end) for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I have loved working with this company and I will definitely miss it.

I decided to create a bit of summer fun in this adorable stand-up card. Here’s how …

ECD Sun Candy Spiegel

1. Cut white cardstock and Transparent Double Sided Tape to 4″ x 5-3/8″. Adhere the cardstock to one side of the adhesive. Pull off the release sheet and place it upside down in front of you. Place peel off stickers sticky side up on the release sheet as shown above. Pick up the cardstock with the adhesive attached and place it sticky side down on top of the stickers. Turn over. Remove the release sheet again and coat the entire surface with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Shake off the excess and polish.

2. Do this again with a smaller piece of cardstock and Transparent Double Sided Tape for the flowers inside the glasses.

3. Color with alcohol markers.

4. Use the Outdoor Edges die to cut a wave pattern at the top and bottom of the glittered cardstock as shown. Add dashes around the edges with a black marker. Cut yellow cardstock 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. Cut stripe paper 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″. Adhere stripe paper to cardstock and glittered cardstock to striped paper.

5. Fussy cut small flowers. Adhere on flip flops with dimensional foam adhesive. Add Turquoise Glitter Dots to ball, glasses, flowers and the corners as shown below.

6. Cut yellow cardstock 4-1/4″ x 11″. Score at 2-3/4″, 5-1/2″ and 8-1/4″. Place Stand Up Helper on the 2-3/4″ line and run through die-cutting machine. Color the Stand Up Helper orange. Fold the card on the 5-1/2″ and 8-1/4″ score lines. Place adhesive between the 8-1/4″ score line and the end of the cardstock and adhere cardstock with peel off stickers on it. Tuck it in the “sun” Stand Up Helper.

7. Cut pattern paper 4-1/8″ x 2-1/2″ and adhere to bottom of the card. Apply Transparent Double Sided Tape to the back of Orange Shimmer Sheetz and another piece to the back of black cardstock. Cut out the letters Fun in the Sun from both the cardstock and Shimmer Sheetz. Adhere the black letters to the card base. Then, adhere the Shimmer Sheetz letters slightly to the right to create a shadow effect.

8. Cut around the leftover pieces of the sun on the sheet of peel offs. Pull off the outside of the sticker and throw away. Cut a piece of Transfer Sheet slightly larger than the sun. Peel off the sheet and place it on top of the sticker. Rub with your finger or a bone folder and carefully lift off. Place on the paper and rub again. Put the Transfer Sheet back on the release sheet and save to use again.

Oh Sweet Lilac

Oh Sweety Lilac 1 060115

Hi! It’s Christine Pooler from Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s Design Team. Spring is here in Maine and so are the oh-so-sweet-smelling lilacs which made me decide to feature the lilac from Susan’s Garden Notes collection. I also used the stamp Let Us Be Grateful from her Seeds of Thought collection. I got the idea for this one flap easel card from fellow crafter, Sharon Hashimoto Burkert, and I loved it.

1.  Card Base –

a.  Cut dark purple cardstock 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ and white cardstock 4″ x 5-1/4″. Punch all 4 corners of the white cardstock with any corner punch or the ECD Tags dies and ink all the edges.

b.  Attach the white cardstock to the purple cardstock so as to have even edges all the way around. (Be careful when adding adhesive to the left side of the very top 3/8 from left edge, 1/2 inch down from top – area where flap will be attached – and up 2″ from the bottom where the die will go. You do not want adhesive in these small areas.

c.  Place the Hello Stand Up Helper on the left side of card base 2″ up from the bottom of the white cardstock. Tape in place as shown below then die cut. It may take 2 or 3 passes as you are cutting through a couple layers of cardstock. Trim off the white “Hello” leaving the purple “Hello” as your stand up helper.

d.  Stamp right side of card with Let Us Be Grateful stamp. When stamping sentiment, be sure to allow enough space on the left for the flap.Oh Sweet Lilac 5  060115

2.  Flap –

a.  Cut dark purple cardstock 2-3/8″ x 4-1/2″ and score at 1/2″ and 2-1/2″.

b.  Cut light purple cardstock 2-1/4″ x 3-7/8″.

c.  Cut white cardstock 2-1/8″ x 3-3/4″.

d.  Ink all edges.

e.  Adhere the white cardstock to the light purple cardstock.

f.  Adhere Transparent Double-Sided Tape to the 1/2″ section of the flap on both sides.

g.  Adhere the flap placing the 1/2″ section between the purple and white cardstock 1/8″ in from left edge.

h.  Adhere 3 strips of the tape on the lower 2-1/2″ section of flap and adhere the light purple and white cardstock to this section, lining up the bottoms.

3.  Lilac –

a.  Using Susan’s Garden Notes – Lilac die:

  • cut 4 branches from white cardstock colored with brown PanPastels
  • cut 2-3 leaves from white cardstock colored with green PanPastels
  • cut about 50 petals from white cardstock colored with purple PanPastels
  • Note: You can use colored cardstock if you prefer and still shade with PanPastels.Oh Sweet Lilac 4  060115

c.  Add a touch of violet PanPastels in the center of each petal and then a tiny spot of bright yellow green tint PanPastels in the very center before shaping.

d.  Shape petals by placing petals on molding mat and pressing small metal ball tool into center of each petal cupping it.

Oh Sweet Lilac 3  060115

e.  Take 2 branches and glue 1 on top of the other using a clear-drying glue. Do this for the other set of branches then add shading with brown Distress Ink. Cut apart 1 of the branches, cutting at an angle, so that you can have 3 branches with 3 lilacs heads.

f.  Place the leaves face down on the Leaf Pad and with the leaf tool from the All Metal Tool Set, make a center vein in each leaf then pinch each leaf forward along the vein line. Lay the leaves on the Molding Pad face down and using the small ball tool, rub the ball over the very tip of the leaf curling it back slightly giving it a natural look.

g.  Adhere your whole branch to the white cardstock on the flap using a clear glue (Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear Adhesive used here.) Adhere your branch piece at an angle so it looks like it belongs.

h.  Start adhering petals to the branches – building your lilac head – until it looks similar to the ones shown below.

i.  Adhere your leaves.

Elizabeth Craft Designs March Designers Challenge – Flower Power

March 31, 2015

Welcome to our March Designers’ Challenge. This month’s theme is Flower Power. With the start of spring, we thought the theme would be just perfect. Flowers make us all happy and there are so many varieties and such a wide array of beautiful colors. We hope these eight projects will make you happy, too, and inspire you to create some flowers at your craft table. Don’t forget to check out our Flower Power PRIZE GIVEAWAY! (Details are at the end of this blog post.)

Our first project for today’s challenge is this beautiful Rectangle Pull Card by Frances Byrne featuring the Victorian Flowers. She die cut the solid flowers from Shimmer Sheetz and the flower overlays from cardstock and added some Silk Microfine Glitter. For the leaves she used the Big Triple Leaf die and for the sentiment one of Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s beautiful stamps, No Winter Lasts Forever. For instructions, visit Frances’s blog HERE.



Raquel Mason created a flower Stand Up Helper card using one of the Stand Up Helper dies from Stand Up Helpers Set 1. She decorated the card using the Daisy, the Small Butterfly and the Ladybug. For the tag she used the basic tag shape die from Tags & More 7 – Vine. Love this cute card by Raquel. Visit her blog HERE for more info and instructions.

ECD March DC Flower Power open

Next project is from Marsha Valk who created this fun Flower Power Birdhouse Hanger. For the flowers and leaves she used Bunch of Flowers 1 and the Triple Leaf Set cut from felt. The roof of the birdhouse is Shimmer Sheetz embossed and lightly sanded. For the body of the butterfly she used Shimmer Sheetz as well and the butterfly silhouette is cut from white cardstock. A beautiful hanger like this will sure brighten up your house! For full instructions and supply list, visit Marsha’s blog HERE.


Another stunning project to decorate your home! Angela Beavers created a beautiful wall hanger using Tags & More 8 – Lattice, Victorian Flower Set 1, Hardware 1 Hinges, and Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s stamp called “Let us be grateful.” The tiny flowers are from the Garden Notes – Hydrangea; they give the tag even more detail. Love how the different dies are used. Find instructions on Angela’s blog HERE.

Debra Hensley created this beautiful card featuring the Garden Notes Hydrangea. The vase is cut from White Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz using our Asian Vase die, embossed with the Lots of Dots folder. The pattern paper she picked perfectly matches the soft colors of the hydrangea. To finish the card she added some Gold Borders Peel-offs for the border lines and the corners. It’s a beautiful card that can be used for many occasions. For more info, visit Debra’s blog HERE.

Get Well Card- Coloring on Glitter

March 7, 2015

Hi Friends!

Debra here today. One of the first things that I learned and fell in love with from Elizabeth Craft Designs was using peel-off stickers that are adhered to cardstock covered with Transparent Double-Sided Adhesive and then glittered. Seeing color flowing over the sparkly, glittered surface was like magic to me – oh-so-beautiful and easy! You can hardly mess it up and the results are stunning every time. I created a Get Well Soon card featuring this signature technique to share with you today.

ECD Mar 7 bp flower 1a P1070756


1. Start with the flowers:

  • Before reading the instructions below, you can see a video Els created using this technique here.
  • Place a sheet of Transparent Double-Sided Adhesive onto white cardstock that is big enough for your peel-offs and remove the release sheet.
  • Be careful not to touch the adhesive or it will leave fingerprints in the glitter.
  • Place the peel-offs onto the release sheet (sticky side up).
  • Place the cardstock that has Transparent Double-Sided Adhesive on top of the peel-off. (In other words, place sticky onto sticky.)
  • Use the release sheet in handling the cardstock until you cover the adhesive with glitter so you don’t leave fingerprints.
  • Cover the adhesive with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter, polish the glitter with your finger and brush excess off.
  • * Color your images as desired using alcohol-based markers on the glitter.
  • Cut around all peel-off pieces.
  • Color white edges with a black permanent marker to give a more finished look.

* Coloring Tips for alcohol-based markers and glitter: Remember when using alcohol-based markers, such as Copics, work quickly and don’t let the tip of the marker linger on the glittered surface. Too much alcohol ink can dissolve the adhesive and remove the glitter. It takes very little ink to color the surface of the glittered image so work with a light touch. To get the faded look as in the image on this card, lay a line of color down along one edge of the section you want to color and then use your Blender pen to pull the color across the rest of the image. You may have to lay more color down to get deeper shading after you blend it out.

2. Making the card:

  • Fold a piece of 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ white cardstock in half to create a standard A2 size card base.
  • Cut a piece of pattern paper 5 1/4″ x 4″ and another piece of that same pattern paper to 1″ x 4 1/4″ and ink the edges with brown ink.
  • Cut a piece of white cardstock 4 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ and a piece of salmon-colored cardstock 4″ x 3″.

3. Place the Get Well Soon Stand Up Helper die on the upper left edge of the salmon cardstock. Die cut and trim away excess from both sides of the die cut words.

ECD Mar 7 bp copics 1a P1070720

4. Adhere pattern paper to card front.

  • Adhere Get Well Soon salmon cardstock to white cardstock.
  • Adhere glittered peel-off to salmon cardstock on pop dots.
  • Adhere the extra flower on a pop dot, over the main flower of the right flower vase, offset. See photo below for placement.
  • Add Corners and Borders Peel-Offs to the pattern paper to complete the front.

ECD Mar 7 bp cu 1 a P1070755

5. Decorate the inside of the card:

  • Adhere 1″ x 4 1/4″ strip of pattern paper to bottom inside about 1/2″ from the bottom.
  • Add colored and glittered flower with stem peel-off, corner, border and circles to complete.

September 27, 2014

Hi, Kelly Booth here. Have you seen the New Tags & More dies that just came out by Elizabeth Craft Designs? So many fun uses for them. I wanted to create a card using the New Tags & More 2 – Deco set. Since Els does a lot of Stand Up Helpers, I thought it would be fun to do a tag one!

8. Using black ink stamp 1 large sheep, 1 small sheep, 1 cupcake top and one cupcake bottom.  Color with markers.

9. Take a small piece of Elizabeth Craft Designs Double Sided Adhesive and place over the colored cupcake top. Remove the backing and pour some Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter onto it and polish using your fingers.

12. Cut a piece of dark gray cardstock 3″ x 3″ and cut the rolling hill using the rolling hills die from Outdoor Edges.


13. Put adhesive on the back of the first 2 3/4″ section. Fold forward and adhere the light gray tag.

14. Adhere the white dotted piece on top of the tag spacing it evenly on three sides.

15. Place the rolling hill at the bottom.

16. Place the Happy Birthday banner at the top using foam mounting tape or pop dots for added dimension.

17. Place Transparent/Gold Glitter Dots around the Stand Up Helper and color them to match the dotted background.

18. Place the cupcake on the rolling hill with the small sheep on top. Place the larger sheep close to the greeting at the bottom using pop dots or foam mounting tape for all. Tie a crinkly pink ribbon through the hole at the top of the tag and the card is done!

I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas

August 8, 2014

ECDPenguinStandUp wm


Hi everyone,

It’s Frances here again! Today I am sharing a card I created using Chilly the Penguin die set which is one of the Character dies designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Crafts Designs. I have created a couple of cards using this die set and I have created a positive and negative image using the dies. I wanted to share how I did that so decided to make another card using this technique.

My card is another Christmas card … but of course you could create the same card and use different colors and sentiments so that the card could be for any occasion. Of course living down here in Australia, it is summer at Christmas time … so I won’t be dreaming of a white Christmas but rather swimming in our pool :).

Here is how I made the card:

ECDCardBase wm

1. Cut a piece of red card so that it measures 4 3/4 inches x 9 1/2 inches.

2. Along the 9 1/2 inch side score at 2 3/8 inches; 4 6/8 inches and 7 1/8 inches.

3. Line the Merry Christmas Stand Up Helper die along the center of the 7/18 inch score line, securing with removable tape. Run card through die cutting machine.

4. Cut another Merry Christmas Stand Up Helper from green card, cut off the word just under the line and attach over the red Merry Christmas on the red card.

ECDSnowCombo wm

5. Cut a piece of white card that measures 5 1/2 inches x 4 1/4 inches. Adhere double sided adhesive paper to the top of the card. Place the dies from the Outdoor Edges die set on the card as per the top left photo above. Run card through die cutting machine.

6. Remove the protective backing from the die cut card and apply Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter over the top, burnishing the glitter with your finger.

7. Cut a piece of designer paper 4 3/8 inches square.

8. Adhere the glittered snow pieces to the designer as per the photo above. Don’t worry too much about the position of the trees as you won’t see much of those once the card is created.

9. Trim off any overhanging snow so it is flush with the designer paper.

ECDSnow wm

10. Layer the snow scene to green card that measures 4 1/2 inches square and then finally onto red card that measures 4 3/8 inches square.

ECDChillyCombo wm

11. Cut a piece of White Velvet Adhesive Sheets and Black Adhesive Sheets so you can fit the two penguin body pieces and the eyes. You will also need a piece of Red Velvet Adhesive Sheet & Green Velvet Adhesive Sheet for the scarf and Yellow Velvet Adhesive Sheet for the feet & beak. Note you will need to cut two sets of feet and beak.

12. Assemble the penguins using both the positive and negative pieces from the dies so you get penguins that look like the two above. One normal black & white penguin and one white and black penguin using the negatives.

ECDChillyCombo2 wm

13. Die cut the hat and bow from the Props 1 die set using Black Velvet Adhesive Sheets & Green Velvet Adhesive Sheets for the hat and Red Velvet Adhesive Sheets for the bow.
Cut off a small band from the green hat and attach it to the black hat as per the photo above. Attach the red bow to the white penguin and add a Red/Gold Glitter Dot to the center of the bow.

ECDPenguinStandUp3 wm

14. Add foam tape to the back of each of the penguins and adhere them to the snow scene card as per photo above. (This is also the front of the card when the card is folded flat ready to be placed in an envelope)

15. Die cut a snowflake (from the Circle Spiral Pull Card die set) from card that has been covered with Double Sided Adhesive. Cover with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter, making sure to burnish the glitter with your fingers. Add a Transparent/Gold Glitter Dot to the center of the snowflake and add it to the card as per photo above.

ECDHollyTag wm

16. Using the Tag die set, die cut the middle sized tag from white card. Also die cut two holly leaves from card that has been covered with Double Sided Adhesive and then cover the adhesive with Green Silk Microfine Glitter. Die cut the holly berries also from card covered with Double Sided Adhesive and cover this with True Red Silk Microfine Glitter.

ECDPenguinStandUp2 wm

17. Add your sentiment of choice to the tag and add the holly leaves and berries to the top of the tag as per photo above.

18. Fold the red card base we created in step 1, so that the top half of the card folds down
(as per photo above) attach the penguin decorated card to the bottom half of the card making sure you only add adhesive to the lower half of the back of the card.

19. Add tag and holly leaves to the bottom of the card as per photo.

Thank You Flowers

July 24, 2014

ECD flower by Candy Spiegel

Hi! It’s Candy here and i’m back to show you a floral Thank You card. For this card I used the circle Stand-Up Helper from Stand-Up Helpers Set 2. I also used a flower Peel-Off that I thought would match perfect with the floral paper that I just purchased.


1. Cut paper 4 1/4″x11″. Score at 2 3/4″, 5 1/2″ and 8 1/4″.

2. Use washi tape to hold round Stand-Up Helper die in place at the 2 3/4″ mark and cut.

photo 1 (2)

3. Cut white cardstock and Double-Sided Adhesive slightly larger than the flower Peel-Off. Remove backing off Double-Sided Adhesive and adhere to cardstock.

4. Remove other side of the adhesive and place it upside down on the table. Remove sticker and place it upside down on backing. Place adhesive/cardstock, sticky side down, on top of sticker. Flip over and remove cover.

5. Coat with Soft Teal Silk Microfine Glitter. Shake off excess and polish. (a coffee filter catches leftover glitter so it can be dumped back into the jar.)

6. Cut out sticker.

7. Repeat with small flower.

8. Use tweezers to apply Glitter Dots and Glitter Flowers as shown.

10. Attach large flower with dimensional adhesive.

14. Cut sentiment from patterned paper and adhere to card.

15. Adhere small flower to inside of card.
