Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today with a card designed using the new Krista Schneider stamp set ‘Spring Blooms’. Also used are the ModaScrap Dandelion Fluff, Dancing Butterflies, A Way With Words – Sweet Smiles, and Els van de Burgt Studio Fitted Oval Frames die sets. The embossing on the white oval was done with the Curvy Leaves Embossing Folder. Here is how the card was created:
Happy Day, Everyone! It’s Karen here, and I am here with a sympathy card made with one of the all-new Krista Schneider stamp sets, Flower Power. Such a pretty set!
Unfortunately, I was in need of a sympathy card for a woman at work who had a major loss. She is still off work, so I decided to send her a little homemade love by mail.
Happy New Year – Welcome 2017! Hello Everyone, it is Christine from Susan’s Design Team. Today’s card is another winter theme card and although Christmas is over the card could be used as a birthday card for a winter birthday. My inspiration for this card was a square wreath that I had seen recently. This card features the beautiful cardinals, one of my very favorite birds.
Happy Thursday Everyone! It’s Tina here today. Can you believe the holidays are nearly upon us? This year has flown right by. Have you prepared your Holiday projects and cards yet? Elizabeth Craft Designs has many new and older items to help you out. Below is a sample to get your creative juices flowing. Below you will find easy step-by-step instructions to recreate this card. Folded, it measures 6″ x 6″.
The Holidays will be here soon and it is time to work on Christmas cards so we are not so rushed when it is time to mail our greetings out to family and friends. This is Selma today and I want to show you how to create a pretty wreath using Susan’s new Garden Notes Small Poinsettia, the Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs & Pinecone and the new Garden Notes Mistletoe die sets. The other die sets used are the A Way With Words – Noel, Els van de Burgt Studio Entwined Circles and Berry Branch. Here is how to create this card:
It’s Frances here and it’s my turn to post a Pop it Ups Wednesday tutorial today. This time round I am playing with a few of Karen Burniston’s new dies to create a Halloween card. My card features Whiskers the Cat sitting on the witch’s broomstick. I think the poor witch has fallen off it by the looks of the witch’s hat and shoes lying on the ground…. oh dear!
Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today with a card to make your mouth water, wanting strawberries. I used the Joset Design Strawberries dies, and one of Karen Burniston’s Pull Card die sets.

There was only one step in this project that was challenging: Naming it! I sent a photo of the nine Artist Trading Cards to my friend Susan and called her on the phone so we could do some brainstorming. I knew I wanted the word ‘Nine’ in the title. It was late in the afternoon, both of us were tired, and all we could come up with were adjectives like ‘notorious’ and ‘nefarious’ (too ‘negative’), ‘nice’ (too sweet), ‘notable’ and ‘noteworthy’ (felt a little pompous). We hung up. Ten seconds later she called back. “Nifty!” she exclaimed. Bingo. It’s official – they’re the Nifty Nine.
It all started with two sheets of peel-offs in gold and black and a piece of alcohol ink-altered Amethyst Gemstone Shimmer Sheetz. Each of the sticker sheets has eight large flowers, four small flowers, and ten half-inch leaves, enough to make lots more than nine ATCs, depending upon whether you use one or two flowers per card (or more!). Or you could try to stop at just one or two…I dare you! ATCs are like jelly beans – a bunch is more fun than just a couple.
As always, my projects are meant as a starting point because no two people will have the same collection of papers and embellishments. I used some ‘retired’ collage papers that I’ve had on hand for ages, but included recently-acquired bunny stickers. I mixed in a notary seal, a tiny flower-shaped gem, some ribbon, snippets of border peel-offs (some altered with alcohol inks), and words created with a label maker – things that might not be among your tools and supplies. If you do want to create the same look but can’t find papers with vintage photos, use old family photos or yard sale finds, pages from castoff books, sheet music, and such.
Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today with a summer scene created with Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s CountryScapes dies. Susan has 31 different CountryScapes die sets making it so simple to create beautiful low-relief dimensional scenes for cards that are easy to make and suitable for mailing.
Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today with a card created with the Joset Designs Lighthouse, Small Shells and Large Shells dies. It is always a marvelous feeling to spend time walking along the coastline finding shells, discovering living things like starfish clinging to rocks in the water, seeing crabs, spotting a lighthouse off in the distance. I hope this card brings back those memories.
