Hello to all !!!
Welcome to the ECD blog!!! This is Anita here.
Card making can be such a relaxing hobby and especially if you have beautiful dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs to beautify your projects. A huge range of craft dies has been released this month and I must say all of them are awesome !!!! You can check them out here.
For my card today, I have created a vibrant background using the ever popular Distress Oxide inks and have combined the poppies with a lace die. The vibrant and the bold poppies against the lacy die looks very beautiful.
This is Anita here with another flower filled card from Susan’ s Garden.
Gerberas are beautiful blooms that can be found in many colours. They range from white, pale pink, peach to hot red , yellow , orange and so on.
I have created many such colourful gerbera blooms with Susan’s Garden Notes die.
You can see the other cards with gerberas here and here
My card today features the beautiful gerbera with the new ModaScrap papers.
DT Melanie here today to share a beautiful new die from ModaScrap. This die is just stunning and so dainty. I wanted to set this white die cut popped up on a vibrant background so you can easily see the intricate details.
Hello to all!
This is Anita here and I have brought fresh roses from Susan’s Garden for all of you. Roses are one of my favourite flowers and I love making them in various colours and shaping them in many ways. Each rose looks different, each is so beautiful.
Susan’s Garden has an entire collection of dies with which to create amazing realistic flowers and you can check them all out here.
I created a lace bouquet wrap using the new ModaScrap Romantic Corner die set and arranged the roses and leaves in it.
It´s Sanna here, and it´s my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team. Today I decided to share a DIY foam stamp idea with you. Sometimes when you look at a die you wish there would be a stamp like that available too. That is what I thought when I saw the new ModaScrap dies! They can be used to create gorgeous stamps and I´d like to show you how I made some DIY foam stamps as well as how I used the stamps for card backgrounds.
Hello there everyone,
It´s Sanna here today with a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team. My passion for paper crafting started with scrapbooking, then I discovered other areas of paper crafting and got distracted. Well, I actually broadened my spectrum. I wanted to go back to creating a layout for a change, so today´s project combines die cutting and scrapbooking.
Shimmer Sheetz-Lined Elegant Roses Gatefold – Merci!
By Judi Kauffman
This project was inspired by a jacket I saw on one of the singers at the Grammy awards show in February. It was kimono-like with elaborate embroidery and exaggerated sleeves that moved and sparkled.
I lined both sides of my Elegant Roses Gatefold card with lightly sanded Turquoise Gemstone Shimmer Sheetz to give the look of the sleeves and used soft sheer organza ribbon to echo the flowing quality of the rest of the garment.
The removable card reveals its secrets when the ‘jacket’ is untied: Leafy branches on the outside, another branch and a sentiment on the inside. I chose ‘Merci’ this time, but will switch to other sentiments and color combinations for sending birthday and anniversary wishes!
Hi, it’s Sandy Diller here with you and I have a fun project that could be used as a gift. I like taking a small gift to the hostess of a dinner party and this is just perfect for that. The pocket is the right size to hold a couple of handmade note cards with envelopes. This is a double tutorial today showing you how I made both the pocket and cards.
Hello dear friends! Evgenia Petzer here with you today sharing a versatile card that can be used for any event – just use another sentiment.
I absolutely love this classic color combo that can be used for so many occasions.
