Hello folks !!!
Welcome to the ECD blog. It’s die cutting time today and I am here to show how we can stretch our dies by re-arranging die cut pieces to create beautiful card bases. Elizabeth Craft Designs’ dies can be used in so many ways to create a variety of projects and it’s great to play with them and take them beyond their original shape.
I have used the Leaf Pocket die from ModaScrap for my card. Instead of leaving it it was first cut I have trimmed it into pieces within the design to create a background.
It’s the first Tuesday in April, time for the Die Cut Design Team Designer Challenge.
Our challenge this month is “Glittery Backgrounds” – add Silk Microfine Glitter in some way when creating the background for your card.
Our Design Team have some wonderful ideas on how to create Glittery Backgrounds for you today. Make sure you check their individual blog posts for information on the technique they used. Elizabeth Craft Designs also has many videos on their YouTube channel using Silk Microfine Glitter, including more backgrounds and plenty of other ideas.
For our challenge today we are giving away three 1/2 oz containers of Silk Microfine Glitter in the colors of your choice to three lucky winners.
To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post below and answer this question: What is your favorite technique to use with Silk Microfine Glitter?
Winners will be selected in a random drawing.
The winners’ names will be announced on Friday, April 7 here on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.
Shalini Pahwa here. A birthday is one of the most important and eagerly awaited days of the year for all of us. Even in this age of advanced technology with a plethora of options for communicating and sending gifts, I still feel that a bouquet of flowers, delivered with a personal message, is the best way to deliver birthday wishes. But if there is a distance between you and your loved one, a card with a bouquet of beautiful handmade paper flowers is a wonderful way to express your emotions – and it is sure to become a cherished gift.
There’s nothing better than a warm cup of tea than a warm cup of tea shared with a friend. Birgit here with you today to share a card I made that would be so fitting to give to a dear friend.
Hello to all my crafty friends out there! For us here in Maine spring is still a couple of months away but that hasn’t stopped me from thinking about spring flowers. Today my post for Susan’s Garden Team has Susan’s newly released Garden Notes Fairy – Rose Petal and she is watering a patch of tulips which is from one of her older releases.
I am tired of all the snow and wanted to think about Spring and the flowers we will see soon. Today I have created a window card with a little bouquet of flowers created with some of the Susan’s Garden Club die sets. Here is how the card was created.
Wishing all my friends and fellow crafters a very good day.
Where I live the spring season is in full bloom, marking the end of a hard winter season and the beginning of fresh sunny weather ahead. The spring season brings vibrantly colored flowers that dot the fields and gardens. Flowers brighten our lives with their beauty. One such flower is the hydrangea – also known as the water flower. Hydrangeas signify heartfelt emotions, gratitude and thanksgiving to one you care for, as well as abundance and prosperity. With these emotions in mind I have created this card with the hydrangea as the central theme.
Hello my dear friends and welcome to the ECD blog.
It’s Pavitra here. I love to make flowers and it’s so easy to create gorgeous natural looking flowers with Susan’s Garden flower dies. The Hydrangea, Gerbera Daisies, Roses, and Tulip are among the newest release and you will surely love all of them.
Today I have a card that showcases the new Garden Notes Tulip 2 . It’s a congratulations card with flowers placed against wooden background created using Soft Finish Cardstock.
Hello there, Sanna here today to share a set of easy-to-make misted-background die cut cards. I really like to use color when crafting and spray inks are so much fun. Therefore I wanted to share this simple and easy card making idea with you!
It’s Frances Byrne here with today’s Pop it Ups Wednesday tutorial. I have been having fun lately creating Z-fold cards using the Pop It Ups Pivot Card dies. Seeing that Valentine’s Day is just under a week away I thought it might be fun to create a Valentine card using the Heart Pivot Card die set.
