A Valentine’s Day Card Using the Bachelor Button!

February 7, 2018

Hi It’s Kelly Booth here,

I often like to create my own backgrounds for projects and was reminded recently of a technique I did several years ago to marble ink on cardstock.  I decided it would be a pretty background for my Valentine’s Day card using several Elizabeth Craft Designs dies along with the new Bachelor Button by Susan Tierney-Cockburn.  I love that bachelor buttons can be found in nature in so many beautiful colors.

One Die – Three Ways

November 30, 2017

Hello to all! This is Anita here today.

Belated Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends at Elizabeth Craft Designs!!! I hope you had super fun shopping for your craft goodies at the ECD store on Black Friday, and maybe my project will entice you to do a bit more…

I had awesome fun creating cards with the recently release Abstract Background. There are many creative ways that you can use this die and I want to share some of the ways now. (You can use them in your own way and I would love to see what you create with them, so if you’re not already part of the Elizabeth Craft Designs Facebook Family, please join in.)

Here is my take for using one background die in three ways.

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.

Sewing with Die Cuts – Heart Ornament Sachets

Sewing with Die Cuts - Heart Ornament Sachets

by Joan Frantzen

Happy Mother’s Day! And thanks for the opportunity to be a Guest Designer again on this blog. To honor all the moms, grandmothers, sisters, and daughters out there, I offer another idea for using dies with fabric. This one features new heart dies used to cut various sized hearts that can serve as appliqués or patterns (another quilter’s trick!). Simply fill them with fiberfill as ornaments with a pop of spring color, or include lavender or potpourri inside for a scented sachet. They’re great “thinking of you” gifts for all the special women in your life!

Die Cut Designer Challenge

Die Cut Design Team Designer Challenge – May

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.
