Male Card by Sandy Diller

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.

Happy Hydrangea

May 10, 2017
Happy Hydrangea by Christine Pooler

 

Hello Everyone, this is Christine from Susan’s Garden Design Team and today is my turn to post on the Elizabeth Craft Design’s Blog.  My project uses Susan’s Hydrangea die along with several other dies.  My designer paper is a sheet that I have been saving for several years now. I can’t even remember where I bought it. Do you ever do that, buy some paper that you love and then not use it because you are afraid that you will not be able to get more?  I have decided I need to use some of those papers!

Die Cut Designer Challenge

Negative Die Cut Cards May Die Cut Designer Challenge

Hi everyone,

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.

We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing.

Thinking of You with Roses

April 21, 2017

Hello Dear Friends,

Shalini Pahwa here. A rose is a symbol of love. There is no better way to express your love, gratitude or appreciation to someone than to give them a bouquet of roses.

Since my childhood I have been enamored of roses. Seeing the new Garden Notes Rose 3 die set by Susan Tierney-Cockburn from the Susan’s Garden collection gave me a new way to use my own creativity to express my love for these wonderful flowers.

This Thinking of You with Roses card is a way to celebrate both the amazing flower and the amazing die.

Bird on a Wire Interactive Card

April 17, 2017

Bird on a Wire Card

Since spring is upon us here in Colorado and I can hear birds singing in the trees, a brightly colored bird card seemed like a great way to celebrate. In this project, the bird is adhered to clear fishing line that can be twisted before placing the card in an envelope to create a “spinning” surprise when pulled out. Colorful and fun!

Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading

Tiger Lily Birthday Card

March 28, 2017

Dear Friends,

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.

Happy Bird-Day Card with Gingham Background

March 27, 2017

Hello friends,

Welcome to the ECD blog. I am Anita here today for the Colouring Design Team. Birthdays can be so much fun and creating cards for this occasion is a beautiful way to show affection for the birthday person. I love making sweet birthday cards and Elizabeth Craft Designs has some amazing stamps and dies to make your birthday projects look awesome.

For my card I tried a new technique for creating a gingham effect background with alcohol inks. It’s easy to do because the lines don’t have to be perfect. It provides a colourful base to the stamped images and dies.

Happy Easter Penny Slider

March 13, 2017

Hi everyone,

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.)
