Hi Everyone. It’s Tina here today for the Die Cut Team. My dear husband’s birthday is coming up and if you are like me, you struggle when it comes to creating masculine cards. I love adding flowers and girly accents to my cards which don’t translate well for a man. I found the trick to making masculine cards is to stick to earth tones. Below you will find the steps to replicate this card.
The Die Cut and Coloring Design Teams are back today with another fun Designer Challenge to share with you.
This time around our challenge is Gift Giving – There are many times throughout the year when we need to give a gift to someone …. Birthdays, Christmas, Teacher Thank You’s etc. Create something for today’s challenge that could be given as a gift, either completely handmade, or something purchased and then decorated to give it that special touch.
If you haven’t heard, Elizabeth Craft Designs has just released new products from Krista Schneider; Elizabeth Craft Designs and new licensed designer Becky Seddon. You can find all these on the Elizabeth Craft Designs online store. The ModaScrap stamps/dies two of our design team have used will also be available soon.
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 this blog post below and answer this question: What are some homemade and crafty gifts you have created over the years?
We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing.
The winners will be announced on Friday, August 18th, here on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.

It’s Tina here today for the Die Cut Design Team. I want to show you a non-traditional “I Love You” card with a DIY background. Before we begin I would like to tell you that if you have been looking for a cardstock that works well with Distress Oxide Inks. Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Soft Finish Cardstock 100 lb is the perfect choice. I have tried many others and this cardstock has the best results. Below you will find easy steps for replicating this card and I will show you how awesome the Distress Oxide Inks work on the White Soft Finish Cardstock.
It’s Karen here with a fun Bird-Day Party card. I’m obsessed with these FuN birds from Elizabeth Craft Designs and also love cards that have fun folds to them. My crafty mentor is so good at them, and I’m using one of her folds today. I’m combining the fun folds and a fabulous bird for a card I made for my son who just turned 24. The paper is called Manly Man and it is NEW!
Hi friends, it’s Sandy with you today. I hope you have had a chance to see the wonderful new ModaScrap papers. They have some great designs including masculine ones called “Manly Man.” It is sometimes difficult to come up with cards for the guys in our lives and these papers sure help. I just finished this one for my dad. I was inspired by Kerin Tamir who showed a mixed media card on YouTube.
Hello dear friends, its Evgenia Petzer with you today and I will show you how to create a simple bookmark. I made one for my son. He now really enjoys reading and this makes me very happy.
Hi It’s Kelly Booth. I’m here to show you one of my favorite ways of coloring using the Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape and Cool or Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Please note that the Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter contains cooler sparkles in it, which gives you a better result in seeing the colors of your image under the glitter than when using Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.
I’m using one of the Sweet Birds from the new Feather Friends stamp set for my card and will show you a few others created with the same technique.
A warm welcome to the ECD blog. I am Anita here with my first post and before I begin, I would love to thank Elizabeth Craft Designs for including me in the team. It’s just been a few days and I am already loving it around here.
The new year has brought in many new and amazing dies and stamps and you will surely love them. I especially like the Valentine’s Day collection. It has all the beautiful designs to pep up your projects for the season of love.
Today, I am showing you my most favourite Lace Pocket die. I have used this to create a Notecard Box that will hold cards and I loved the idea of creating a lacy box to give it a very feminine look. I have made it in purse style.
Do have a look at my creation, followed by more pictures to show how I made it.
