Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Happy Holidays Christmas Card. The starting point for my project was the new Christmas Tree Die designed by Becky Seddon. The project really took shape when I combined the Christmas tree die with a variety of die cut images from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
Hello crafty Friends! Kathy Jo here sharing a fancy frame card using three of Suzanne Cannon’s soon-to-be-released die sets. Oh, you will love her new die collection! Gorgeous!
The card is fun to make and you will find that once you make one, you will want to do another.
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here today for the Die Cutting Team. Today I am going to show you how to create texture with your stencils. Below you will find instructions and photos so you can replicate the Follow Your Dreams card.
DT Melanie here with you to share my newest project. Today I have played with a lot of Elizabeth Craft Designs’ dies along with peel-off stickers and glitter. I had tons of fun!
Hello! Diana here with a Summer Fun card I made after the Scrapbook Expo in Chantilly. I had such a great time helping out at the ECD booth with the Silk Microfine Glitter demonstrations that I got some and continued to play with it once I got home. At the Expo, I also picked up the Slider and Spinner die set. Here’s my card combining the two. It’s been a while since I made a slider card and what I love about this die set is that there are four different shape slots you can make for the interactive feature instead of just the usual straight line. The A Way With Words Dies ‘Summer’ and ‘Fun’ dies are the perfect topping for this card.
Welcome to Sunday Stamping with Hedgehog Hollow on the ECD blog. I am so excited to be a guest blogger. First of all let me introduce myself. My name is Alexandra and I run a crafty blog called Hedgehog Hollow, I am a British mummy who recently moved to Ohio, blogging about my adventures on this side of the pond along with our Prickle’s crafty exploits! I will be here once a month with a full video tutorial on cardmaking techniques. Each video will have lots of tips and tricks and a few hacks along the way to give you the most from your crafty budget. ECD even created this wonderful graphic for me to add to our monthly posts…
I love the new trend of layered die cuts, however, they end up being so pricey once you have bought all the layers. So, of course I decided to create my own and the ECD Chevrons Background die was perfect for this technique as would the Diamond Background die. Here are the cards we are going to create in today’s tutorial. I chose a 4th of July theme but you could use any color combination, or amend the sentiment for a birthday or anniversary as the colors are great for a masculine card (something I always find a bit tricky)…
Isn’t it surprising how using the same three colors in a different order come out with such a different effect? These are super simple cards, your die cutting machine does all the work for you! Here is a step-by-step video tutorial on how to create your own layered die cuts…
If you wish to use the Diamond Background, cut it down the middle and offset each half for the perfect layered effect. I have so many ideas with this die that it will definitely be featured in a future post, so stay tuned to the ECD blog and Hedgehog Hollow for more ideas and some of my favorite tools from today’s tutorial. For today, here is your ECD supply list for the tutorial. We have an exclusive Hedgehog Hollow discount code on our crafty sale page, too…

“A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone. It doesn’t struggle to be different…
It doesn’t have to. Its different…”
These lines from America’s celebrated spiritual teacher and author Marianne Williamson describes the spirit of the Tulip flower. Tulips have been known since centuries as the symbol of perfect endearing love between partners or family members.
Today I dedicate this card to the bonhomie I share with a childhood friend of mine whom I have connected with after almost 30 years. I have used Yellow tulips in this card as they mean “there’s a sunshine in your smile”. Yellow tulip is a great medium to express affection and care for your friends and loved ones. I dedicate this card not only to my friend but also all my fellow designers as a mark of warmth and camaraderie I share with each one of you.
This “Hello ” card is a layered card.
I’m often looking for ways to extend the use of my dies and creating a stencil to make a background is the perfect way to start.
Birgit here today with a card I created to inspire you.
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here today for the Elizabeth Craft Designs Die cut team. Today I want to show you how interactive the Elizabeth Crafts Designs Product are. Below you will find the steps to replicate this card.
