Washi Tape

Cardmaking Elizabeth Craft Designs General Joset Designs

Animals, Washi and Valentine’s Day!

January 20, 2021

Karen here today. I’m sharing a couple cards that I made using Joset’s adorable animals and the gorgeous washi tape! These cards would be great for Valentine’s Day or just as a reminder to that special someone in your life that you love them.

The Monkey die is definitely one of my favorites! I cut the monkey using brown and Kraft paper and added some cheeks and ears with Copic markers and a white gel pen. His eyes and mouth are colored with a black pen. I cut the pieces of him that are “on top” with 101mm Double Sided adhesive on the cardstock to make him easier to put together.

The sentiment is from the Safari Sayings stamps and is framed with a Stitched Circles and Dotted Scallop Circles die cuts. The card base is cut with the Stitched Rounded Rectangles.

I love how just a few pieces of the Reminiscence Washi Tape adds a little interest to the card. As you can see here, I also added a couple half-pearl embellishments. The little strip of paper is a “scrap” that I had left over from the Mystical Winter Papers.

And, oh my, the Raccoon die creates such a cute card! He is cut with black paper and 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock, which I colored with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. The sentiment is also from Safari Sayings. The card background on this card is cut with the Stitched Indented Dies and framed with a piece of black cardstock. I used the beautiful Artsy Scenery Washi Tape! On this one, the scrap of paper is from the Reminiscence Book.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Christmas Cards – So Many Options!

December 7, 2020

Karen here today sharing some FuN Christmas cards. I recently purchased this beautiful pack of blue and purple holiday paper and decided to challenge myself to create using *almost* every designer here at Elizabeth Craft Designs. The products are all so lovely, and I wanted to play with many of the styles.

This first card features a FuN font stamp from Sue Smith Creative Designs. This one is from the Snow Stamps, but there are many beautiful options. I added a snowflake from A Way with Words, Flourished Christmas Mini Dies and covered it with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive (before cutting) and added some Silver Silk Microfine Glitter. I used a Stitched Rounded Rectangle to cut the stamp out.

How pretty is that AMAZING new Washi tape from Ilse and Charlene (Artzy Scenery Washi Tape)!!? In this card, I diecut the ends of those rectangles using the Junk Journal Extras Dies. I also used the Florals 4 dies designed by Anita, the Joyful Wishes Sentiments Stamps, the Stitched Circles Dies and White Craft Drops.

Oh, how I do love a glitter covered Santa Claus (die set designed by Joset)! This one is covered with Speckled Indigo and Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter (applied with the 101mm Double Sided Adhesive). His face is colored with E000, E00, R21 Copics and his feet and hands are colored with W7 Copic. The sentiment is again from the Joyful Wishes set.

That glitter is gorgeous! And serendipity, it matches my nail polish!

I just love the beautiful font dies from Suzanne Cannon in the A Way with Words collection. This one is Merry Christmas, Small Die. It is die cut with a Stitched Rounded Square Die. The card also uses the Fitted Fishtails dies.

And FINALLY, I used the adorable snowman from Planner Essentials 34 – Christmas Figures, designed by Esther Glas. He is so sweet and comes with the fun sleigh rides ticket (and many other dies). I also used the Stitched Circles dies on this card.

Well, I may have gone a bit overboard…but I just love all of these collections of dies. They are just so versatile and fun!

Craftily yours, Karen

Rusty Artist Trading Card Duo

April 21, 2020

Hi there,

It’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this Rusty Artist Trading Card Duo.

Step 1: Creating the Background

  • cut a 10” x 15” piece of patterned paper from the Rusty Weathered paper pad
  • add white liquid acrylic paint and some Alcohol Inks for an even rustier look
  • cut the panel into two halves

Step 2: Adding more Texture

  • adhere some torn washi tape to random areas
  • apply Prima Marketing Texture Paste Platinum Crackle through the Story Telling and Make your Mark stencils
  • stamp the large elements from the Words and Layers stamp set with Versafine Clair Fallen Leaves
  • ink up the edges with Distress Ink Ground Espresso and heat-emboss them with Distress embossing powder Vintage Photo

Step 3: Finishing the Project

  • adhere the panel to a slightly larger piece of kraft cardstock
  • add the sentiments – one is from the Words and Layers set and one is from my vintage typewriter stash

Stay safe.

Hugs,
