Summer Crafting on the Go

Hi there! It’s Marsha here and today I’m going to share a couple of ideas for crafting on the go!

Summer is in full swing over here and there are lots of fun things to do and places to go. If I’m not on the go, I prefer to spend more time in the garden rather than in the craft room… But that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped creating!

So what am I up to?! Art journaling of course! You do not need to be in the craft room to art journal. You can take your journal and put a couple of your favourite supplies into a toiletry bag and head outside!

Marsha Valk | Elizabeth Craft Designs: Summer Crafting on the Go

Next to the supplies there is always room in the bag for a couple of peel-off sticker sheets, some stencils, (homemade) fun foam stamps and maybe a couple of die-cuts that you pre-cut at home.

Marsha Valk | Elizabeth Craft Designs: Summer Crafting on the Go

For my Summer art (travel) kit I die-cut a couple of stencils with some of my favourite Elizabeth Craft Designs dies.

Marsha Valk | Elizabeth Craft Designs: Summer Crafting on the Go

As you can see, I don’t tend to clean my stencils, so I needed them to be as durable as I could get them. I cut them out of a mask material, but you can also use a regular transparency or even some cardstock.

If you want to die-cut stencils out of plastic mask material like this, you will need to use the Metal Adaptor Plate or even something heavier like the Precision Base Plate by Sizzix and you may need to run the material through the die-cut machine several times.

Marsha Valk | Elizabeth Craft Designs: Summer Crafting on the Go

If you are not into art journaling, but you like to do a bit of colouring or maybe if you would just like to try a couple of mixed media techniques, I’ve got another great idea for you.

One of my local scrapbooking/stamp stores hosts an annual Summer challenge where they give you daily prompts that you need to execute on a regular correspondence card. I’ve been playing along this year and I’ve fallen in love with the single 4×6 inch cards!

The cards are cheap. You can get a big stack of them for about two dollars, so if a technique or sketch goes wrong, it’s no big deal. The quality is also decent enough for colouring with alcohol markers, inking and stencilling.

Marsha Valk | Elizabeth Craft Designs: Summer Crafting on the Go

The size is just right. You can finish one card in a small amount of time. If you keep your toiletry bag of art supplies at arm’s length, you can do one at the pool or one at the park or… one just before the kids wake up from their nap!

Another thing I like about the format is, that you can bundle a stack of finished cards and make it into a mini book or journal. Or, if a particular card turns out really well… add a sentiment, adhere it to a folded note card and send it to someone!

Marsha Valk | Elizabeth Craft Designs: Summer Crafting on the Go

You will be surprised at what can be done in limited time and with limited supplies. I know that I’m having a blast with just a few supplies, my art journal and that stack of correspondence cards!

What are your favourite Summer crafts? Do you have any tips for crafting on the go?

Have a wonderful (sunny) day!

Marsha

Happy Birthday Shine !!!!

IMG_4506

Hello everyone,

It’s Jackeline and for my project today I decided to create a fun card using the new Happy Birthday word die from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

To build the stand up helper:

1. Cut a rectangle piece of  11″ x 6 1/4″ in white cardstock.

2. Make 3 score lines: the first one at 2 1/2″, the second at 5 1/4″ and the last one at 8″.

3. Stick down 2 Stand Up Helper dies from Stand Up Helpers 3 – Hinges at the first score line (2 1/2″), and run it through your die cut machine. Repeat the process 2 times more at the same score line.

For more info on how to create a Stand Up Helper card, watch a tutorial by Els Here

To create the glitter background:

4. Adhere a piece of double side of adhesive to white cardstock.

5. Cut a rectangle piece of 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. Remove the backing, exposing the sticky side.

6. Cut a rectangle of approx. 6″ x 5″ of the the backing tape paper .

IMG_4521

7. With the assistance of the backing paper, mark the line for the first glitter stripe. Apply the Silk Microfine Glitter and polish.

IMG_4523

8. Repeat the same process to create the other 5 stripes.

IMG_4526

To create the bottom part:

9. Die cut the flowers using Bunch of flowers 4 and Bunch of flowers 2 in fuchsia and pink patterned paper .

10. Place the flowers on the stand up helpers base and decorate the center with gold glitter dots.

IMG_4506 - Copy

To decorate:

11. Adhere a piece of double sided adhesive to Gold Shimmer Sheetz and die cut the sentimental using the “Happy Birthday” die from our new A Way With Words collection. Make sure to use the metal adaptor plate when die cutting Shimmer Sheetz.

12. Add some gold lines peel-offs on the first score line.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and it will help you to find inspiration for your next project.

Happy Crafting!!

‘Twas the Night before Christmas ….

KBChristmasMouse1wm

 

Hi everyone,

It’s Frances Byrne here today.  As today is the 25th July, that means there are 5 months or 22 weeks or 153 days until Christmas … yikes! So I decided to share a Christmas card for today’s project. I don’t know about you, but I need to get that stash of Christmas cards growing. I just love the new Jolly the Mouse character die that will be release early in August and have used that to create my card. I have used the Lorna Label Pop Up die to create a Double Lorna Label Pop Up, so the card stands on its side.

Here is how I created my card:

KBChristmasMouse2wm

 

The Inside – 

1. Cut a piece of red card that measures 11 inches x 4 1/4 inches. Score along the long side at 5 1/2 inches and fold.

KBChristmasMouse3wm

 

  • Keeping the card closed, place the pop up die from the Lorna Label Pop Up set so that the centre nubs of the die are lined up on the fold of the card. Run card through die cutting machine.
  • Open card up and using the Sprigs Embossing Folder, place one end of the card into the embossing folder up until the bottom score line of the pop-up. Emboss. Repeat this on other side.
  • Use white ink to highlight the embossed card.
  • Pop up your pop up panels (you should have a pop up on both sides of the card.)
  • Using green card that is big enough to fit the die, die cut two more of the Lorna Labels Pop Up die. Trim the label portion of the die from the card and adhere this over the red pop up labels on the card.
  • Die cut two labels from the Lorna Label Pop Up set from white card. Use the two sentiments from the Merry & Bright Clear Stamp set and stamp these onto the labels using red ink. (Note: as we are changing the orientation of this card from what it normally is, make sure to stamp the labels to match that orientation.)
  • Adhere the sentiment panels to card as per photo above.

2. Using the Jolly the Mouse set die cut the following:

  • (2) Solid Mouse Bodies from black card
  • (2) Detail Mouse Bodies from grey card
  • (2) Mouse Tails from grey card
  • (2) sets of eyes from white card
  • (2) sets of whiskers from white card
  • (2) sets of mouse feet from pink card
  • (2) noses from pink card
  • (2) sets of inner ears from pink card (from the detail mouse body)
  • (2) Solid Candy Canes from white card
  • (2) Detail Candy Canes from red card

Note: I normally prefer to adhere a sheet of Transparent Double-Sided Tape to my card stock before I die cut my pieces. However as we will be assembling one of the mice so it is facing the opposite direction, which means the back of the card will be the front, you will want to omit the tape for one of the mice.

Assemble mice and attach one to each side of the card using foam tape and so that the tails go under the pop up panel on each side.

3. Cut a piece of red card that measures 11 inches x 4 1/4 inches. Score along the long side at 5 1/2 inches and fold.

  • Apply adhesive to the back of one side of the inner card and adhere it to one side of the inside of the fold red card. Repeat with other side.

KBChristmasMousewm

The Front of the Card:

4. Cut a piece of designer paper 4 1/4 inches square. Adhere this panel to the right hand side of the card.

  • Cut a piece of red card 1 1/2 inches x 4 1/4 inches. Emboss this panel using the Sprigs Embossing Folder and highlight embossed areas using white ink. Adhere red panel to left side of card.
  • Attach a Red/Gold Glitter Border Peel Off Sticker to the card where both panels meet.
  • Die cut a label from the Lorna Label Pop Up set from white card, before die cutting label place the stitched label from this set into the middle of the die so that you get a stitched label.
  • Use red ink and stamp the Merry Christmas from the Merry & Bright Clear Stamp set.
  • Attach label to the centre of the green panel using foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial.

Explosion Box With Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi, it’s Angela & today I want to share with you a fun housewarming gift that Nicole, Darcy & I created using the Elizabeth Craft Designs dies! Let me share with you how we created the explosion box with a bottle of wine inside.

G (3)

*The four sides of the explosion box are 12” tall and each one is a sleeve that holds a folded tag which is created by using the tag & more die.

E (4)

A (5)

*A door is created by folding wood paper and creating a folded tag using the tags & more die.

B (3)

*Inside the door “Congratulations” is die cut and glued inside.

C (4)

*Hinges and numbers are die cut out of Shimmer Sheetz for the front of the door and used to decorate the door front along with a copper brad.

*The three sides of the box are decorated with patterned paper and the brick and leafy branch dies.

D (4)

*The wine bottle is decorated with the tags & more die cut from both ends and tied on the bottle front with jute.

*The inside of the explosion box is decorated with wine themed paper.

G (3)

This project was a fun way to use the dies to create something a little different & it was a lot of fun decorating the box! Try thinking “outside” the box to use your Elizabeth Craft Designs too!

Susan’s Garden Rose with Baby’s Breath

ECD-SGDT-July-2015

Hi, this is Selma Stevenson today with a beautiful rose from Susan’s Garden Collection. I love to create any flower from Susan’s collection, but one of my favorite is the rose. Once created, they are so realistic, you can almost smell them. Susan has three different rose die sets. For my card today I used Susan’s Garden Rose – 1 which is the largest rose.

1.  The rose was die cut using white cardstock then colored using Tattered Rose Distress Ink. A drop of the refill ink was placed on the Teflon Craft mat and water added to dilute the ink. Some of the petals were dipped in the ink, especially the petals used for the center of the rose and the rose buds. The rose buds were created with two of the largest rose petals.

ECD-SGDT-July-2015-Rose

2.  I love to add Baby’s Breath with Roses.

ECD-SG-July-2015-Tut1

3.  To create Baby’s Breath, die cut the Berry Branch. The die cut branch is seen on the left. You can use the whole branch, but I cut off a portion of the bottom so it wasn’t too high behind the rose.

4.  Die cut a lot of the little flowers from the CountryScapes – Flora 1 die. The flower die used is shown on the upper right corner in the picture.

5.  Shape each little flower by pressing down in the center on the Flower Molding Pad with the smallest stylus from Susan’s Flower Tool Set.

ECD-SGDT-July-2015-Tut46.  Start gluing the little flowers to the “berry circle” on the Berry Branch. I used the self-closing tweezers from the Flower Tool Kit to pick up the tiny flowers, dipped them in glue, and pressed them down in the center with the tip of the leaf tool from the Flower Tool Kit.

7.  Glue more little flowers on the stem of the Berry Branch, filling in all the open spaces. Next, let the glue dry so the flowers don’t slip around.

ECD-SGDT-July-2015-Tut-5

8.  Glue additional little flowers over and on sides of the branch until you have a very full looking baby’s breath branch.

ECD-SGDT-July-2015

9.  Die cut the Paris Edge on a 6″ x 6″ piece of white cardstock.

10.  Emboss the Paris Edge die cut using the Spring Leaves Embossing Folder. Attach it to a 6″ x 6″ inch card front with the lacy side toward the bottom of the card.

11.  Die cut banner, seen at the top of the card, using the Agatha Edges dies.

12.  Die cut the hearts and the small ovals using the Accordion Oval Card die set. The hearts and two largest ovals were colored the same way as the rose using Tattered Rose Distress Ink. Attach the two ovals together with dimensional tape and glue to card.

13.  The Sunshine and Love sentiment was stamped using black ink on white cardstock then cut out with scissors. It was glued to the card between the ovals.

14.  Die cut the Small Butterfly. The solid butterfly was colored with Tattered Rose Distress Ink, then the white lacy butterfly attached on top.

I hope you have fun creating Baby’s Breath for your Susan’s Garden Roses!

A Way With Words Clean and Simple Cards

Congratulations_Brusho-July2015

Hi there! It’s Suzanne Cannon here today with a closer look at the new word dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs which will be in stores soon.

I’m so honored to be part of the Elizabeth Craft Designs family and look forward to sharing all sorts of ways to make the die cuts from A Way With Words Collection come alive. It’s so exciting to see artwork originally done with broad-edged pen and ink on my drafting table, transformed to die cut words ready to share on cards and multi-media projects!

A-Way-with-words-641

Here are just a few ideas to help you create clean and simple cards with lots of impact. You just know these cards are going to stand out!

Congratulations_Brusho-July2015

Congratulations uses a bright band of color to make the sentiment pop.

  1. Form a 5 x 6.5” tent-folded card base from watercolor paper.
  2. Die cut Congratulations from watercolor paper.
  3. Open the card. Use a broad brush to spread a band of water measuring approximately 1.5” across the middle of the card front.
  4. To add color to this card I used Brusho powders and dropped them into the wet surface allowing them to blend across the band. Any highly colored media that blends well can be used such as watercolors or inks. Allow to dry.
  5. Adhere Congratulations over the band of color.

Friends_Birdie_July2015

Friends features a small gold drop shadow to coordinate with the sweet birdies.

  1. Form a 5 x 7” tent-folded card base using a deeply colored cardstock. This sample uses Core’dinations Aquamarine.
  2. Die cut Friends from Core’dinations Atoll Aqua and another from gold cardstock. Adhere the gold Friends behind the colored Friends slightly offset so it is just peeking out from behind the colored cardstock.
  3. Die cut the two birds from gold.
  4. Adhere the birds and Friends to the card front as shown on sample. I love dimension, so I’ll roll bits of tape or glue dots to attach the elements to my card base. You can also use foam tape, but you have to cut the pieces very small! Use your Elizabeth Craft Designs Fine Pointed Scissors and Fine Pointed Tweezers to make and handle those little bits!

With_Sympathy_July2015

With Sympathy is assembled in muted colors with multiple layers of simple rectangles of cardstock. Don’t worry if the ascenders and descenders of the letters extend past the edges of the panel they’re attached to. It makes your creation more dimensional and interesting!

  1. Form a 5 x 7” tent-folded card base using patterned paper. (For this sample I used Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses Collection cardstock)
  2. Die cut With Sympathy from the lightest colored cardstock.
  3. Cut coordinating panels measuring 6 ½ x 4 ½ ”, 5 ¼ x 3 ¼ ” and 5” x 3”.
  4. Attach smallest panel to next panel with double-sided tape. Attach this panel to the next larger panel with foam tape. Attach this panel to the card base with foam tape.
  5. Attach die cut words to top panel with small pieces of foam tape with the help of Fine Pointed Scissor and Fine Pointed Tweezers.

This is just the very tip of the iceberg! The possibilities with these three simple cards are endless. By simply changing the colors and papers you can customize your card for that special person receiving it. Thanks for joining us and happy creating!

Pop it Ups Rectangle Pull Card – Peek-a-Boo card with Brownie the Cow

Happy Saturday! It’s Karen Burniston here sharing one of the cards I taught a few months ago at the Collins Retailer Training Event. How now, pink cow! Is this where strawberry milk comes from?

The Rectangle Pull Card die set features a z-fold opening action, a tuck slot to keep the card closed (no accidental reveals!) and an optional spinner die to create movement inside the card. In fact, it’s such a popular die that it is currently out of stock on our website (whoops!) but that does not mean that you can’t find it in your local independent craft store or at another online retailer if you want to give this peek-a-boo card a try.

Brownie_the_Cow_RPC

  1. Cut a piece of pink cardstock to 8.5” wide x 5.5” tall. (21.6cm x 14cm) and score in the middle for folding. Line up the Rectangle Pull Card die over the fold of the card with the top alignment nub touching the top edge of the cardstock and nesting in the small decorator rectangle to cut the window at the same time. Die cut. Fold according to the instructions on the packaging OR these video instructions: Introduction to Rectangle Pull Card (slide to 6:43)
  2. Add ECD Double-sided adhesive to the back of a piece of cream cardstock and die cut the following pieces to become stickers: Brownie the Cow’s snout, hooves and horns, Hay There’s stitched label, Rectangle Pull Card’s postage frame (cut two) and swirlydo, and Poppy the Owl’s heart. Add the postage frames to both sides of the window and the swirlydo and heart to the front of the card.
  3. From the floral patterned paper cut two pieces: 2.25” x 5.25” and 1” x 2.75”. (5.7cm x 13.3cm) and (2.5cm x 7cm). Adhere the larger piece to the right side of the card, leaving an equal amount of pink showing to the right, top and bottom of the strip. Add a 0.5” x 5.5” (1.3cm x 14cm) strip of cream cardstock over the seam, making sure not to cover the tuck slot in the card. Add the smaller strip of patterned paper horizontally on the card’s front. Die cut a stitched speech bubble from cream cardstock and add it to the front of the card. Refer to the photos for placement.
  4. From the small flowers patterned paper cut a Brownie the Cow detail layer and the “hay there” greeting.  From pink cardstock cut a Brownie the Cow shadow layer and the spinner from the Rectangle Pull Card. From light yellow cardstock die cut the hay stack and the cow’s bell. Emboss the haystack using an embossing sandwich before removing it from the die. Die cut a white pair of eyes.
  5. Assemble Brownie the Cow by attaching the detail layer to the shadow layer, adding the snout, eyes, horns and hooves, and using two strands of twine for the bow on the bell. Pierce holes and add black brads for pupils. Learn how to assemble Brownie in this video: Farm Character Assembly Video
  6. Add the spinner inside the card as shown in the photo below. Start by finding the three folds in the spinner and folding them all mountain style (you’re looking at the top of the mountain) Add double-sided adhesive tape to the outer panels, not crossing the fold lines. Add a small piece of double-sided adhesive tape up near the top of the spinner just to the left of the center fold as shown in the photo below. Peel up the liner on the right tape only, and adhere that panel of the spinner inside the card as shown below. The edge of the spinner should be placed directly in the fold of the card. The location should be roughly about even with the base of the tuck slot. Do not peel up the other tape liners yet!BrownieRPCSpinner
  7. Place Brownie over the spinner in approximately the angle shown below. Brownie’s tail and body should cover the tape at the center of the spinner, but not touch the tape at the end of the spinner. Notice Brownie’s ear is approximately vertical and lines up over the cream strip. Do not adhere Brownie to the tape yet, but hold Brownie’s left ear (on your right) while closing the card to check placement.BrownieRPCSpinnerAddCow1
  8. Close the card and check if Brownie is peering through the window at a pleasing angle. Make any minor adjustments to her location and then carefully open the card, peel up the liner on both pieces of tape, attach Brownie to the outer tape, and close the card to attach the inner tape to complete the spinner assembly.BrownieRPCSpinnerAddCow2
  9. Brownie will now spin up into a popped up position when the card opens.BrownieRPCSpinnerAddCow3
  10. Attach the haystack behind Brownie’s back hoof and tie a piece of crepe ribbon around the left side of the card. Add the two interior rectangles of the postage frames plus the stitched label to the inside of the card as shown. A personal greeting can be written in the stitched label. Avoid any embellishments in the area below Brownie and the haystack, as those can become catch points to impede movement. The finished card is 5.5” square (14cm square) and can be mailed in a 6×6 square envelope for extra postage.
