It´s Sanna here with another guest designer post. Have you ever been in a situation when you need a card on really short notice? Or want to quickly make a masculine card? I thought I´d share a few simple ideas I like to use when these occasions occur.
I have created three simple card ideas that can be varied in style by changing the papers and colors or by choosing alternative dies. Here are the instructions:
It’s time for Sunday Stamping with Hedgehog Hollow again. I can’t believe it’s my last post of 2017. First of all, Merry Christmas. I hope you are planning lots of fun times over the festive period, however you celebrate it. I am of German heritage and I loved getting all my presents Christmas Eve. I let the girls open a small present Christmas Eve to keep the tradition alive, we have the rest of our presents Christmas Day – stockings when we first wake up and then we have Stollen Bread with Bucks Fizz and Prosecco, then a big round of presents before a big traditional British Christmas Day meal! We have the in-laws over this year and I love them both so much. We will have lots of good food, laughter and fun while we celebrate our first Christmas in our own home. I’m so excited!
Hello there everyone, its Sanna here today with a fun and colorful project for the Die Cut Design Team. It’s a Summer Flowers Card Set, and I want to share how easy it is to make more than one card using the same color palette with the Stitched Fishtail Banners and Fitted Circles dies, plus the Flower Power Clear Stamps set and coordinating Flower Power dies.
Hello to all,
It is Anita here with my post for the Colouring Design Team! I love colouring stamped images and Elizabeth Craft Designs has beautiful stamps that can be used on many projects.
I really love their flower stamps and that’s what I have showcased here today.
I have used the Spring Blooms Clear stamp set along with a corner die. In this card, I used the large flower for the main images and the smaller flower for the background. The details follow.
Welcome to Sunday Stamping with Hedgehog Hollow on the ECD blog. I am so excited to be a guest blogger. First of all let me introduce myself. My name is Alexandra and I run a crafty blog called Hedgehog Hollow, I am a British mummy who recently moved to Ohio, blogging about my adventures on this side of the pond along with our Prickle’s crafty exploits! I will be here once a month with a full video tutorial on cardmaking techniques. Each video will have lots of tips and tricks and a few hacks along the way to give you the most from your crafty budget. ECD even created this wonderful graphic for me to add to our monthly posts…
I love the new trend of layered die cuts, however, they end up being so pricey once you have bought all the layers. So, of course I decided to create my own and the ECD Chevrons Background die was perfect for this technique as would the Diamond Background die. Here are the cards we are going to create in today’s tutorial. I chose a 4th of July theme but you could use any color combination, or amend the sentiment for a birthday or anniversary as the colors are great for a masculine card (something I always find a bit tricky)…
Isn’t it surprising how using the same three colors in a different order come out with such a different effect? These are super simple cards, your die cutting machine does all the work for you! Here is a step-by-step video tutorial on how to create your own layered die cuts…
If you wish to use the Diamond Background, cut it down the middle and offset each half for the perfect layered effect. I have so many ideas with this die that it will definitely be featured in a future post, so stay tuned to the ECD blog and Hedgehog Hollow for more ideas and some of my favorite tools from today’s tutorial. For today, here is your ECD supply list for the tutorial. We have an exclusive Hedgehog Hollow discount code on our crafty sale page, too…

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I am excited to see you again for some more Sunday Stamping next month and I hope to see you at the Hollow soon. You can also follow us for sneak peaks on Instagram @HedgehogHollow or catch me each day at 11.30EST on Facebook for more stamping tips and tricks.
This is Anita here. I am an avid card maker and love trying out new methods to get innovative cards. Card making involves many techniques, stamping and masking are among them. My project today features both to create a layered scene.
I have used Krista Schneider’s Row Houses Clear Stamps set and coordinating dies.
DT Melanie here with today’s inspirational card I made for all of you. This is the very first time using watercolor markers so be gentle with me 🙂 My hubby adores bumble bees since he is a Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket fan, so when he saw this a big smile came over his face. I hope it brings you a bit of happiness as well.
Everyone needs a little motivation at times and I think this “Reach for the Stars” sentiment was perfect for this stamp set.
Hello Crafty Friends!
Welcome to the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. I’m Anita here. Today, I have my favourite thing on the post for you – stamped flowers. Stamping is really relaxing and colouring stamped images can be a real stress buster.
I love colouring the floral stamps from the new ECD release. These are so lovely. You can check them out here. I have given a soft delicate look to the flowers by stamping some of them on vellum.
Here is my card, followed by a tutorial showing how to make it.
Hello everyone and Happy 2017!! It’s time for my first blog post this year and I wanted to create something monochromatic. It has been snowing where I live and the fresh falling snow inspired me to create this card.
