Hello! I’m back with my favorite component on cards – butterflies! I just think they are the prettiest and most wonderful creatures, and so easy to play with on cards. They can be any shape, design, colors… so versatile. I must say though that my favorite butterflies for papercrafting are the more delicate die cuts. Read on to see how I created this simple but elegant 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.

Hello to you all. It’s Anita here and I am super excited to share a card making technique with you that will help you make amazing backgrounds for your projects. I have used the beautiful flowers from the Spring Bloom set. For my card I have used tal and other shades of blue teal for the flowers and background, plus metallic gold for the butterflies, borders, and outlines.
Hello, sweet readers! Diana here again to share a clean and simple card that is perfect for any occasion. The front is a simple greeting to a sweet friend – inside you could write Happy Birthday, Hello, Thank you, or just a note of friendship. Read on to see how I made this card. Though clean in design, a lot of interest is added by use of a veritable rainbow of colors, along with gold and some sparkly rhinestones.

It’s my turn to post a tutorial on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today. My card today is inspired by a Christmas card I received from my sister-in-law. As soon as I saw the card I knew that I had to make something similar using the new ModaScrap Rose Pocket die. I love it when you find there are ways to use a die other than for what it was intended.
It’s Frances here again with another tutorial to share with you. For my project today I have used the new Moda Scrap Lace Pocket die that I used for my project last week, but this time round I have created a box that would make a lovely presentation to use when giving a gift to someone.
Valentine’s Day is not far off! With all the dies in the new Elizabeth Craft Designs release, we can make the perfect cards for those special people. This is Selma Stevenson today, and I have used the new Els van de Burgt Studio Stitched Hearts and Entwined Hearts die sets to create this card. Here is how the card was made:
