Hello there everyone, it’s Sanna here with a Guest Designer project. But first, I´d like to congratulate everyone on the design team. It’s a great team to be part of! I feel very honored to be able to stay here and share crafty projects with you as a guest blogger. Today is my turn to share the first project, so let’s get started.
When it comes to making a Valentine for a man, it can be a bit of a challenge. How do you balance the girly hearts and doilies with a man’s less glittery sensibilities? For today’s project I have tried to do that. There are definitely feminine elements at work in this card, but the color palette and simple images help keep it from becoming too delicate. Here’s how I made the card:

I’m kicking off 2018 with some super simple cards. Care to join me? Each of them uses only two dies.
Though I chose the Scalloped Circles die set for the main element on all three – an embossed and lightly-sanded Shimmer Sheetz circle, you could easily substitute other circles from the collection, Stitched or Fitted, if you prefer smoother edges.
I chose an ornate embossing folder with ribbons and flowers and combined Fire Opal Gemstone Shimmer Sheetz with its coppery look and silver core (revealed when sanded) with solid color cardstock in shades of peachy pink and orange, a palette that skews toward the feminine without being overly sweet.
Switch the embossing folder and color combination as you choose! For example: With smooth-edged circles and an embossing folder that looks like metal plates (Gold, Silver or Basic Black Shimmer Sheetz) the cards will be decidedly masculine. With a folder like Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Heart Strings (Red or White Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz), you’re ready for Valentine’s Day!
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Make a Wish Note Card. With the New Year here, you always seem to need birthday cards right away, so why not get a jump start on creating some for your card box. Using a variety of dies from Joset Designs, the Entwined Circles Die from Els van de Burgt Studio and some floral patterned paper from ModaScrap this card came together quickly. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!
Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today. It is time to wish you a Happy New Year! Our next holiday will be Valentine’s Day and nothing represents this special day better than roses and hearts (or is it chocolate for some of you?). I have designed a card using Susan’s Garden Rose 1 die set and Elizabeth Craft Designs Scalloped Hearts die set. The beautiful sentiment is from one of the A Way With Words die sets.
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here today from the Die Cut Team. This is my last post so be sure to go to my blog and follow me if you want to continue seeing more Elizabeth Craft Designs ideas from me. Below is a Holiday card that can be used as a New Year’s card or for those last minute cards you need to make.
Merry Christmas, Crafty Friends! This is Selma Stevenson today and I have a card with one of the stamps from the Holiday Trees & Ornaments stamp set. The frame was created by layering a variety of die cut rectangles (Fitted, Stitched, Fitted Frames, Dotted Scallop). This was one of my favorite Christmas cards this year.
It’s time for Sunday Stamping with Hedgehog Hollow again. I can’t believe it’s my last post of 2017. First of all, Merry Christmas. I hope you are planning lots of fun times over the festive period, however you celebrate it. I am of German heritage and I loved getting all my presents Christmas Eve. I let the girls open a small present Christmas Eve to keep the tradition alive, we have the rest of our presents Christmas Day – stockings when we first wake up and then we have Stollen Bread with Bucks Fizz and Prosecco, then a big round of presents before a big traditional British Christmas Day meal! We have the in-laws over this year and I love them both so much. We will have lots of good food, laughter and fun while we celebrate our first Christmas in our own home. I’m so excited!
