It’s challenge time again! Our Design Team is back this month with lots of inspiration for this month’s challenge … Are you ready?
Our challenge is …………
A Floral Christmas – Flowers and foliage can play a big part in our Christmas decorating. For our challenge this month create a card or project that features either flowers, foliage etc. It can be using traditional flowers and foliage that is used at Christmas time (eg poinsettia’s, holly, pine boughs etc) or use something non traditional and make it Christmassy by using Christmas colors or something Christmas related on your card project.
For our Challenge today we are giving away a $20 Gift Card to use on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website to 3 lucky winners.
To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post below or on the Designer Challenge post on our Facebook page and answer this question: Which Elizabeth Craft Designs flower or foliage die or stamp set would you chose to create a Christmas card or decoration.
We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing.

Hey Friends! It’s EK from ekgorman designs and I am sneaking in to share not one but two marshmallow cards featuring the new Marshmallow Snowmen stamp set. In our house, all winter long hot chocolate rules, according to both of my girls, and the only acceptable way to drink it is with giant marshmallows floating on the top. Needless to say, while this stamp set was not created with my daughters in mind, according to them, it was. So in tribute to them, here are two marshmallow cocoa cards for my two marshmallows girls.
Hi everyone! Here in Montreal, our first major storm has just been through, leaving us with a lovely blanket of snow. One of my daughters, although an adult, still gets excited at the thought of snowman building, so this card is for her. It combines my love of Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s CountryScapes with the Build a Snowman die set as well as her lovely Garden Notes – Whitepine Boughs and Pinecone and Garden Notes – Holiday Holly & Berries die sets. Silk Microfine Glitter adds the perfect sparkle to the snowman.
Hello Crafty Friends! Christine here today with a project featuring Susan’s new Garden Notes Nasturtiums die set. I have had the bird cage for a while and have been wanting to do a project with it so when the nasturtium set came out I knew that it was perfect for the bird cage, purchased at a craft store.
Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here. I really like using Silk Microfine Glitter on Christmas cards and I’d like to share a set with you today.
The holiday season is creeping up on us and will be here before we know it. To help celebrate the holiday season I’ve put together a little container to remind us of what it is all about: JOY!
Hi everyone! It’s Elena today and this time of year always makes me want to create some cards for Thanksgiving. I don’t own many traditional Thanksgiving themed stamps or dies so I decided to try an experiment to see if I could create a card with a Thanksgiving feel using the Color My Flowers stamps and dies from this past spring, but with fall colors and some easy, fun techniques. I like the result and hope you do too. It’s always nice for me to find new ways to use stamps and dies that I may not normally think of for certain holidays! Here’s how I made the card:

I love the holidays….putting up the Christmas tree, decorating, spending time with family – all of it! It is very special to me and my family. Today I am sharing a Christmas themed layout I created
Hi Crafty Friends,
It’s Frances Byrne here today with another tutorial to share with you. As Christmas is now less then two months away, I thought I would create another Christmas card. I have used the Poinsettia Clear Stamp set and coordinating dies from the new Krista Schneider Winter/Christmas collection.
