Hi Everyone, Christine here. It is my turn to post. Since summer is winding down and the sunflowers are blooming here in Maine. I have decided to use Susan’s Garden Notes Sunflower 2 for my project. Sunflowers are such happy flowers – who doesn’t love them!
Hello my crafty friends, Christine here with another card I have designed using the Ultimate Glittered Napkin Technique. This technique is addicting, such fun and rewarding, and you will soon be looking at all napkins in a different way. I wish the glitter effect showed up better in photos as it really is sparkly.
Hello, it is Christine today with a card project using several of Susan’s Garden Notes dies and a background done with Distress Oxide Inks. My version of Love-In-A-Mist flowers is based on seeds I had bought called “Chocolate & Cream”(I think they may also be called “African Bride”). Unfortunately the seeds did not germinate as they were probably planted a little late, but I will try again for next year.
Welcome to May’s Sunday Stamping with Hedgehog Hollow. Last month you may have seen that I fell in love with the Floral Background Stamp. I think this stamp is so versatile. As soon as I saw it I had so many ideas! Today I am going to be showing you a faux parchment craft technique. I did Pergamano many years ago but it was very labor-intensive, while this technique is quick and easy because the stamp and embossing do almost all of the work for you! Let’s take a look at the project…
I absolutely love the subtle color effect on this card. You can also make it more intense and in the video I will show you how. We will also be exploring some of the wonderful tools Elizabeth Craft Designs has that make this technique a cinch.
Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here again with another guest blog post and step-by-step. For today´s post I created a set of flower cards using a stamp masking technique. By adding a different sentiment, this basic idea can be used for almost any occasion.
Alexandra from The Hedgehog Hollow here today! I’m so excited that we have brought back Sunday Stamping with Hedgehog Hollow. I will be here once a month with a cardmaking video tutorial. Today I decided to use the new Ocean release from Tonic Studios to color in the stunning Floral Background stamp. This is such a versatile stamp, I have so many ideas with it, so expect to see more projects featuring this stamp on the Hollow!
I love how the on-point background just pops and looks so elegant, you could of course do this in any color scheme but I love the effect the blues give.
I always enjoy stretching my stamps by using non-holiday stamps for holiday cards, mixing them with some holiday-themed accessories. For this card, I have combined flowers from the Laundry Party Clear Stamps with Easter eggs from the Spring Sentiments Clear Stamps set to create a bright and colorful Easter greeting. Here’s how I made the card:
Today’s card was designed for our dear granddaughter’s 18th Birthday. It is so hard to believe that our first grandchild has turned 18! Where have those years gone? I wanted to showcase a few of her baby pictures and what better way than to use Susan’s Garden Notes Square Window as a frame. Also from Susan’s Garden Notes, I have used the newly released Cornflower Bachelor Button.
Hello to all,
This is Anita here. How was your Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday Shopping? I am sure you all must have shopped to your heart’s content at the ECD store as there was a fabulous scheme going on.
Today let us celebrate the coming days even more by planting smiles and love with a card made with Susan’s Garden dies and a wonderful sentiment from her stamp collection along with other dies from the ECD line. I chose Love in a Mist, a beautiful flower that I learned to make by watching Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s Facebook video tutorial, and I encourage you to watch it so your flowers will be realistic and lovely, just like hers!
