Bird on a Wire Interactive Card

Bird on a Wire Card

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!

Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading

Floral Blessings with Butterfly

April 15, 2017

Nothing says Spring has arrived as much as flowers and butterflies.  They are also really easy to combine to make a sweet card!  I just got some beautiful new dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs, including the new Dancing Butterflies set.  I’ve been on a gray kick lately – it’s such a nice soft neutral color and goes well with a more vibrant color.  Today I am pairing it with purple!

Circles, Tea and Macarons

April 14, 2017

Happy Friday!  It’s Karen here with a couple of thank you cards. One of my goals for 2017 is to be more grateful.  To show that gratitude, I need more thank you cards!  I’m a tad-bit circle-obsessed.  Yes, it’s a strange thing to be, but what better way to feed my obsession than crafting with circles.  Today, I am going to show you a FUN way to use the Circle Background die along with the Tea Time stamps.

Pop it Ups Wednesday with Frances – Steampunk Birthday

April 12, 2017

Hi everyone,

It’s Frances here, and it’s my turn to post a tutorial today for Pop it Ups Wednesday. This time around I decided to pull out my steampunk themed dies and stamps, combined with the Oval Pull Card and Jinks the Monkey, to create a birthday card. I have to admit that steampunk is a little out of my comfort zone, but it can be fun to play with something in ways that aren’t what I normally do.

Cats’ Night Out!!!

April 11, 2017

Hello friends. Welcome to the ECD blog.

Colouring is such a beautiful way to release stress and tension. Colours bring a smile to every face and I love the whole process of colouring. I would call today’s card ‘Fun colouring’ because the images are simple to colour and the results are amazing.

I have used masking to create the moonlit sky. The cats out there are having a good time… Have a look!!!

Follow Your Dreams

April 10, 2017

Hi everyone,

It’s Frances here, and it’s my turn to post a tutorial for the Coloring Design Team. Today I decided to play with the Krista Schneider Dreamers stamp & die sets and the Joset Designs Dream Sentiments that work so well with the Dreamers stamp set. 

As I couldn’t decided which of the cute animals to use from the stamp set to make my card, I decided to use a simple design and make three cards – one with each of the animals (dog, cat and fox). There are also three smaller images that fit inside the thought bubble included in the stamp set, so I used one for each animal. All three cards are exactly the same, I just changed the colors, the animal, and what they’re dreaming about.
