It won’t be long before the tulips are blooming and the Easter Bunny will be hiding eggs! Good Morning, this is Selma Stevenson. It is time to start working on Easter cards since Easter is just one month away (April 1). Today I incorporated tulips along with a cute bunny to create this card.
It’s challenge time again! Our Design Team are back this month with lots of inspiration for this month’s challenge … are you ready!!!!!
With Easter being about 6 weeks away being this year at the end of March/beginning of April. If you didn’t know Good Friday falls on the 30th March and Easter Sunday on the 1st April, so it is fairly early this year. So for our challenge this month we are going with an Easter theme.
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 on our Facebook Giveaway post and answer this question: What Elizabeth Craft Designs dies or stamp sets would you use to create an Easter Card?
We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing.
The winners will be announced on Friday, February 23rd, here on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog & Facebook page.
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.
It’s Frances here today with a tutorial for the Coloring Design Team. With Easter only a month away I thought it would be fun to create an Easter Card using the Krista Schneider Woodland Pals stamp set and coordinating dies. There is a cute little rabbit in this set, making it perfect for Easter.
As you can see, I decided to create a Penny Slider card using Joset Designs Sliders and Spinners die set. It is optional as to whether you use pennies or cardboard circles for the spinner mechanism, however the weight of the pennies does make the image spin and slide better. Instead of a coin, substitute a metal washer. (Cover the hole in the washer with cardstock.)
It’s time for our March Die Cut Design Team Designer Challenge. Our challenge this month is ‘It’s in the Box!’ We are going 3D this month, creating and decorating boxes using any of the 5 new box dies Elizabeth Craft Designs released in January.
For our challenge today we are giving away “a box die of choice” to 3 winners. The winners will get to select which box die they would like to receive from the following: Star Pillow Box, Triangle Treat Box, Lantern Box, Bonbon Box or Pillow Box with Handle.
To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post below and answer this question: “Which is your favorite box from the January 2017 collection?”
We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing.
The winners will be announced on Friday, March 10 on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.
It’s Jackeline here and today I would like to share a quick and fun idea for Easter, a gift bag to fill with surprise treats. This last-minute project was designed to fill your home with thoughts of ‘Hoppy’ Spring and smiley faces.
Let’s get started.
1.- On a paper bag in the color and size of your choice, use black ink to repeatedly stamp Lucky the Rabbit. Tip: Temporarily mount the stamp on an acrylic block; clean and dry stamp before removing from block.
2.- Die cut a rectangle from White Soft Finish Cardstock using the largest rectangle from the Stitched Rectangle die set.
3.- Die cut 3 Easter egg silhouettes and 3 overlays from White Soft Finish Cardstock. Tip: Back the cardstock for the overlays with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet BEFORE die cutting.
4.- Using a mini Ink Blending Tool, ink the egg shapes and overlays with three different color inks. I used Barn Door, Peacock Feathers and Mustard Seed Distress Ink pads. Tip: Darker ink at the sides will make the eggs look rounded.
5.- Die cut 5 pieces of grass from Olive Twist Soft Finish Cardstock using the grass strip die from Easter Eggs die set.
6.- Die cut 5 banners from Sunflower Soft Finish Cardstock. Fold banners and adhere them around a brown thread.
7.- Die cut 6 banners from Soft Sky Soft Finish Cardstock. Fold banners and adhere them around a brown thread.
8.- Using the Alphabet 2 Lower Case die set, die cut letters to spell ‘happy easter” from White Soft Finish Cardstock (backed with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet before die cutting).
9.- Refer to the project photo: arrange and adhere the rectangle, banners, eggs and grass as shown, adding foam tape beneath the banners or anywhere else you want extra dimension. Tip: Knot the ends of the banner strings and glue them in place – knots are easier to glue down than straight string.
10.- Fill your bag with Easter grass and tuck in your favorite goodies. Surprise!

Hi there! It’s Marsha here today, sharing a clean and simple Easter Eggs card!
Have you heard? The new coloured Soft Finish Cardstock has arrived and… it’s so, so beautiful!!!
I had to create something with it right away, otherwise I might hoard it and I’ll end up only petting it every once in a while.
There are so many things I love about this cardstock, but to name just one: it has one coloured side and one white side. This means you can do fun things with it, like using the coloured side to cast colourful shadows on a white card!
It’s Frances here with today’s project. With Easter being only a week away, I decided to create an Easter card using Joset Designs Easter Eggs die set and the Els van de Burgt Studio Stitched Rectangles. I couldn’t help but add some green to my card using the new Through the Lens Wood Series 6×6 cardstock.
Hi there! It’s Marsha here today with a fun Easter craft that you can easily do with kids!
Easter brunch is a tradition in my family and we tend to have the same festive foods on the table each year. I usually buy a bunch of spring-coloured paper napkins to put on the table, but this year I thought it would be fun to decorate cotton napkins with fabric paint.
