Hi Everyone! It’s Katelyn here, sharing a beautiful Love & Happiness Wall Hanging. My starting point for my wall hanging was the Ready to Bloom die and the different die cut images just grew from there. I used a variety of dies from ModaScrap and Els van de Burgt Studio as well as a stamp from Joset Designs to make the wall hanging. Let me show you how to make it.
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.
Hi Everyone! It’s Tina here today for Susan’s Garden Club. By now you’ve seen the stunning new line from Susan Tierney-Cockburn. I was so excited when I saw that there was a Gerbera Daisy die because the Gerbera Daisy is my favorite flower, a flower that makes me happy. For my last post I showed you how to create a bubble background for your card. Today I have another background technique for you. It’s the Wax Paper Technique. Below are the steps to create the background and the rest of the card.

It’s been a long while since I’ve been the guest designer on our blog. It’s fun to be in my studio for two whole weeks instead of on the road. Today’s project is my way of celebrating the new Feathers die set as well as Tim Holtz’s brand new Distress Oxide inks – a great combo!
The Distress Oxide inks are just amazing. I love how they respond with water, how you can combine colors without messing up, and how easy it is to get terrific results. I used them for a spattered looking background on my card as well as for the banner and feathers.
Hi Everyone! It’s Katelyn here, sharing a masculine Birthday Card. My starting point for the card was the cupcake die. To make this card I used some of the newly-released dies as well as some favorite classic dies from Joset Designs, ModaScrap, and Els van de Burgt Studio. Let me show you how to make the card.
Welcome to the ECD blog. This is Anita here. I have to think long and hard when it comes to making masculine cards and most of the time I struggle to decide which elements create a proper one. Elizabeth Craft Designs has some beautiful die sets that can be transformed with simple colouring to make cards for the men in our lives.
I have a very elegant masculine card today. I used several layers to build my card and chose the new Distress Oxide inks to colour the feathers.
Happy Friday! Hope everyone has fun weekend plans! It’s Karen, here with a birthday card that I made for my mom. She is the best mom (for me) and really enjoys the cards I make for her. I used the Purr Clear Stamps and coordinating dies, plus the Twist Circle Pop-Up die set.
It’s Frances here today with a fun tutorial to share with you. I have created a Double Gatefold Card using the ModaScrap Gatefold – Elegant Roses die set. This is a new way to create a Gatefold Card, different from what is shown on the packaging.
Welcome to the ECD blog. I hope spring is in full bloom in your garden. Flowers are popping up everywhere and winter blues are fading away.
Today I have tulips for you from Susan’s Garden and believe me, they are so beautiful!!! I have an entire dozen of them on my card.
Be sure to check out all of the new flower making dies from Susan’s Garden on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website. Meanwhile, have a look at these marvelous flowers.
