Hello everybody, it´s Sanna here and it´s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team today. If you know me, you know that I love color. I have been going up and down ever since the Distress Oxides arrived and told myself I don´t really need more inks. Well, eventually I gave in and got myself a set of six colors. Needless to say, I totally fell in love with the inks and I am afraid I am going to need a few more colors soon. The inks work so nicely with the Soft Finish Cardstock, too. (Am I finding excuses to buy a few more colors? Yes, I am…)
Summer is a big time for outdoor activities here in Colorado, so I could not resist using the new Camping Out stamp set to create a Colorado-esque canoeing scene. Colorado is also a state filled with dog lovers (I am one of them), so I could not resist the adorable dog wagging ‘hello’ from the lake.
I’ve been feeling very woodland-y lately, perhaps because it is summer in Colorado and there seem to be deer and other critters everywhere. Plus, there’s nothing like a stunning natural landscape to inspire dreams! As a result, I had to make a card using the Birch Forest stamp set. I combined the stamps with some of the new patterned papers, particularly the ModaScrap Butterfly Dream paper. It seemed like the perfect mix for a card with animal friends that are here to encourage your dreams and imagination.
Hello there everyone, its Sanna here today with a fun and colorful project for the Die Cut Design Team. It’s a Summer Flowers Card Set, and I want to share how easy it is to make more than one card using the same color palette with the Stitched Fishtail Banners and Fitted Circles dies, plus the Flower Power Clear Stamps set and coordinating Flower Power dies.
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…

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I am excited to see you again for some more Sunday Stamping next month and I hope to see you at the Hollow soon. You can also follow us for sneak peaks on Instagram @HedgehogHollow or catch me each day at 11.30EST on Facebook for more stamping tips and tricks.
It´s Sanna here, and it´s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team. Today I decided to share a DIY foam stamp idea with you. Sometimes when you look at a die you wish there would be a stamp like that available too. That is what I thought when I saw the new ModaScrap dies! They can be used to create gorgeous stamps and I´d like to show you how I made some DIY foam stamps as well as how I used the stamps for card backgrounds.
Hello Everyone, this is Christine from Susan’s Garden Design Team and today is my turn to post on the Elizabeth Craft Design’s Blog. My project uses Susan’s Hydrangea die along with several other dies. My designer paper is a sheet that I have been saving for several years now. I can’t even remember where I bought it. Do you ever do that, buy some paper that you love and then not use it because you are afraid that you will not be able to get more? I have decided I need to use some of those papers!
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!
