Hello! Samantha here – Today I’m sharing a card I created that came about simply by stamping a background stamp. I tend not to use pattern paper as much as I used to, but I do love a good versatile background stamp. Elizabeth Craft Designs have a few background stamps that I have used (a few times now) to create my own patterned paper. Once I had stamped my background the idea developed to use a masking technique to create ink blended features using Birthday Sentiments and the co-ordinating Labels 1 Die.
Hello Welcome! Samantha here sharing a card I created using two of my favourite Elizabeth Craft Designs dies. One of the things I love about dies is how easy and simple they are to work with. I had originally planned to colour the leaves in, but after colouring one in with Copic Markers I realised that it would take quite a decent amount of time and that I could achieve an equally striking and bright look by using some scrap left over pieces of cardstock that I have in my stash.
Welcome – it’s Samantha, back again sharing one of my favourite ways to create with background stamps. I think background stamps are undervalued in my craft room. I have a rather large collection but hardly use them outside their main intended purpose as a background stamp. For today’s card I want to share a simple and effective way to create a focal point using a background stamp.
With this month’s challenge theme I (finally!) got the chance to play with Elizabeth Craft Designs Silk Microfine Glitter. I loved it so much that all my cards this month feature it, his card included. Though it’s a clean and simple design I’ve added texture and sparkle to create a fun birthday card.
Hello everyone! Samantha here, sharing a card I created with all intentions of making it a single-layer card…But once I had stamped these pretty flowers I knew that I wanted to create more dimension so I made the flowers pop off this fun little ‘hello’ card!
Easter is on its way! Since having children – Easter is probably one of my favourite family ‘moments’ of the year. The chocolate, hot cross buns, family get together’s and the best bit the Easter egg hunts! So for today’s card I wanted to create something fun and bright and inspired by eggs.
Samantha here, back again sharing one of my cards created using Elizabeth Craft Designs beautiful Floral Background stamp. This is one of those cards that came together because I don’t like to waste leftover cardstock. I know I’m not the only one! So with this very versatile background stamp I decided to create my own colourful background.
Hello – Samantha back sharing a card I created using Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Butterfly Aperture die by Becky Seddon. This is one of those card making moments where the idea in your head seems fun and easy but the actual process is long and tedious. Many times I thought of changing the idea, simplifying it, but I persisted and well…you tell me, worth it?
I think so… 🙂
Hello – Samantha here, posting my first blog post for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I was extremely excited when I got an email from Frances telling me that I made this design team. It’s quite a big deal putting yourself out there, so I thought I’d create a Thank You card to show my appreciation.
