Hello Dear Friends,
Shalini Pahwa here. A rose is a symbol of love. There is no better way to express your love, gratitude or appreciation to someone than to give them a bouquet of roses.
Since my childhood I have been enamored of roses. Seeing the new Garden Notes Rose 3 die set by Susan Tierney-Cockburn from the Susan’s Garden collection gave me a new way to use my own creativity to express my love for these wonderful flowers.
This Thinking of You with Roses card is a way to celebrate both the amazing flower and the amazing die.
DT Melanie here with you today sharing a really fun card designed completely with Elizabeth Craft Designs’ dies. The Circle Background Die was such fun to work with. This mosaic design feels mesmerizing to me. It is actually really easy to create too! Below are the simple directions so you can make your own.
Since spring is upon us here in Colorado and I can hear birds singing in the trees, a brightly colored bird card seemed like a great way to celebrate. In this project, the bird is adhered to clear fishing line that can be twisted before placing the card in an envelope to create a “spinning” surprise when pulled out. Colorful and fun!
Here’s how I made the card:
Hello there! It’s Riikka here to share two projects with you and they both come with a tutorial! This card has a step by step version and then the layout that I made as my other project has a video! Double treat, should I say! Like always both of the crafts use the same idea, steps, and materials but the form is just different.
Happy Friday! It’s Karen here with a couple of thank you cards. One of my goals for 2017 is to be more grateful. To show that gratitude, I need more thank you cards! I’m a tad-bit circle-obsessed. Yes, it’s a strange thing to be, but what better way to feed my obsession than crafting with circles. Today, I am going to show you a FUN way to use the Circle Background die along with the Tea Time stamps.
It´s Sanna here, and it´s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team. Today I decided to share with you a teen boy birthday card idea. My son recently celebrated his birthday and this is the card I made for him. It is fairly easy to make and by changing the colors you can easily create a card for a teen girl using the same idea.
They say once we see robins, that it’s the first sign of spring. I have seen robins and a variety of others birds now that the snow has all melted. It was fun creating a scene with a variety of Elizabeth Craft Designs die sets. I have included sets from Joset Designs, Els van de Burgt Studio, and Susan’s Garden Club. Here is how this card was created:
Hello out there my crafty friends. It is Christine here from Susan’s Garden Design Team. Today I am posting a card I made featuring Susan’s Garden Notes Pansy die along with her Garden Notes Ivy Vine. The color of the pansies comes from a photo I saw on Facebook last year that I fell in love with and the wooden box is because I love rustic, primitive things.
It’s Frances here, and it’s my turn to post a tutorial for the Coloring Design Team. Today I decided to play with the Krista Schneider Dreamers stamp & die sets and the Joset Designs Dream Sentiments that work so well with the Dreamers stamp set.
As I couldn’t decided which of the cute animals to use from the stamp set to make my card, I decided to use a simple design and make three cards – one with each of the animals (dog, cat and fox). There are also three smaller images that fit inside the thought bubble included in the stamp set, so I used one for each animal. All three cards are exactly the same, I just changed the colors, the animal, and what they’re dreaming about.
It’s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team. I love making cards that are a little different from the normal square or rectangular cards. Today I have used the Fishtail Borders die set from Els van de Burgt Studio to add a fishtail edge to my card. To decorate my card I used dies from Joset Designs and A Way With Words.
