This is Selma Stevenson today. Spring is here and it is time for all the little baby birds to be seen, and that was the inspiration for my Spring Happy Birthday card. This is Selma Stevenson today. I hope my project makes you feel happy!
Welcome to our May Die Cut Design Team Designer Challenge. This time round we have a technique to share with you that uses dies in a different way.
Our Challenge this month is ….. “Being Negative” – Normally when we use dies to cut we get a positive piece (the actual die cut) and a negative piece (the leftover piece or pieces that we often throw away). In many cases the negative pieces can also make interesting card components, and it is these pieces that are the focus of the Challenge cards. The Design Team can also incorporate the positive die cut piece if they wish.
For our Challenge today we are giving away a Background Die Prize Pack that includes the Heart Background, Circles, Background, Chevron Background and Diamond Background to 3 winners.
To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post below and answer this question: What are some project ideas where you could use die cut scrap pieces when crafting?
We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing.
The winners will be announced on Friday, May 5, here on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.
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 and will open up in a new window.
Shalini Pahwa here. A birthday is one of the most important and eagerly awaited days of the year for all of us. Even in this age of advanced technology with a plethora of options for communicating and sending gifts, I still feel that a bouquet of flowers, delivered with a personal message, is the best way to deliver birthday wishes. But if there is a distance between you and your loved one, a card with a bouquet of beautiful handmade paper flowers is a wonderful way to express your emotions – and it is sure to become a cherished gift.
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 Frances Byrne here with today’s Pop it Ups Wednesday tutorial. I have been having fun lately creating Z-fold cards using the Pop It Ups Pivot Card dies. Seeing that Valentine’s Day is just under a week away I thought it might be fun to create a Valentine card using the Heart Pivot Card die set.
