Hello Crafty Friends!
Spring is in full swing here in Nova Scotia. The birds are happily tweeting, the squirrels are playing, and my garden flowers are starting to poke up through the soil. Spring is so beautiful! I love this time of year.
The beauty of spring and the promises of summer inspired the card I am sharing today. The card uses the gorgeous Flourished Frame die and You Were Born with Greatness Clear Stamp set from Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words collection.
It’s challenge time again! Our Design Team are back this month with lots of inspiration for this month’s challenge … Are you ready?!?!?
Our challenge this month is …..
Frame It – There are so many options to include frames when we are creating either cards, scrapbook layouts or home decor items. For our challenge this month please include a frame of some type when creating your project.
Earlier this year we released two new dies designed by ModaScrap called Happy Frames and Happy Frames XL that some of our Design Team members have used for this month’s challenge. Els shared a Technique Friday with Els a few weeks ago showing how to use these dies. You can find it here.
For our Challenge today we are giving away a $20 Gift Card to use on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website to 3 winners.
To enter, simply leave a comment either on the Facebook Giveaway post or this blog post below and answer this question: What Elizabeth Craft Designs dies or stamp sets would you use to frame something on a card, scrapbook layout of home decor item?
We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing.
The winners will be announced on Friday, March 23rd, here on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog and Facebook.
Now let’s take a look at the wonderful creations our talented Design Team have created for the Challenge this month. For more information about the cards, click on the designer’s name under each card to be taken to the designer’s blog post.
Hi Artlings! It’s Suzanne here today with a delicate birthday card. We always need birthday cards! Here’s one that’s a little different. By die cutting the Flourished Frame and inlaying all the pieces back in, we can create a more subtle frame that doesn’t overpower the pink and gray. Layer the elements to create more interest and you’ll be creating something really special for someone special!
Here is how you can make it –
Hello everyone, Christine here with my first post for Elizabeth Craft Designs in 2018.
Weather here in Maine has been bitterly cold, actually record cold for December, and it is going to continue. Dreaming of warmer days, my post today uses Susan’s Garden Dahlia 2 and Black Eyed Susans which were in her last release along with Suzanne Cannon’s Flourished Frame and Els van de Burgt’s Thanks and Berry Branch.
Hi there! It’s Suzanne here today as 2017 comes to an end. I hope it’s been a good year for you and you’re looking forward to an even better 2018! I plan to get out my art supplies more in 2018. I spend a lot of time at the computer and even if I’m being creative, it just isn’t the same as cutting and gluing and inking! What about you? Do you have plans to do more in 2018? Perhaps learn something new?
I’m here today with a quick and easy card for someone with a winter birthday! There are lots of winter babies out there who need cards! It’s a great example of how you can mix and match dies from the A Way With Words collection and it’s super easy!
Here is how to make it:
