How To Make These Cute Birthday Tag Critters

March 12, 2019

Hey Friends. It’s EK Gorman here today sharing some tags I created using the some of the new critter dies sets.

One of my favorite things about the new critter dies from Joset is that they are so incredibly versatile. What was originally designed for some safari fun, can easily be turned into a bit of everyday birthday day labels. Today, I am taking a few of the new critter dies and turning them into the perfect tags to hang from birthday presents for both the old and young.

Step One: Die cut the piece from the Zebra die set and some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two: Color the zebra strip die cuts with some alcohol markers. I used N8 copics.

Step Three: Color the hair, tail and hooves with alcohol markers. I used N6, N8, and 100.

Step Four: Color the body, head, legs and ears with alcohol markers. I used N0, N2, and N4.

Step Five: Color the nose and ears with alcohol markers. I used R00, R20, and R22.

Step Six: Assemble the body of the Zebra using Kids Choice Glue.

Step Seven: Using Kids Choice glue, add the zebra stripes to the body. Tweezers help in the placing of these small parts. I used the ones from the 4pc all Metal tool set.

Step Eight: Repeat Steps one through seven, but using the Monkey die set and the Little Chick die set. The Monkey parts were colored with E21, E23, E25, E27 and E29. The Little Chick was colored with Y00, Y02, Y06 and Y08 plus YR15 and YR16.

Step Nine: Die cut balloons, party hats and fun party accessories from the Party Accessories die set. Color them with alcohol markers. I used RV00, RV02, RV04 and RV06 for the pink accessories, R05, R24, R29 and R89 for the red accessories, Y21, Y26 and Y28 for the gold crown, B12, B16 and B18 for the blue balloon, and N4, N6, and N8 for the black mustache. Adhere the accessories to the critters with Kids Choice Glue.

Step Ten: Trim a piece of Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock, True Blue Soft Finish Cardstock and Spring Green Soft Finish Cardstock to 6×6 inches. Then die cut the top of the tag from the Tags & More Lattice die set. Trim off any excess paper.

Step Eleven: Add the lattice die cut effect to both the top and the bottom of the tags using the Tags & More Lattice dies.

Step Twelve: Add tag reinforcements from the tag die set to the top of the tags. I mixed and matched paper colors to add a bit of whimsy to the card.

Step Thirteen: Adhere the critters and party accessories to the tags. Stamp a sentiment onto each tag using the Safari Sayings sentiment stamp set. Finally, add some colorful ribbon to the top of each tag. I also added some glossy accents to the top of all they party accessories so that the accessories were shinny.

Thank you for peeking in today to my project today. I hope you think they are as much fun as I do. Make sure to share how you are playing with the collection of new critter dies over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Family Page.

Until then, happy crafting!

How To Create A Cute Gift Tag

March 3, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you how to create a cute gift tag that’s perfect to add to any gift or gift bag!

To create this gift tag, I’ve used the brand new dies from Joset Designs as well as dies from Els van de Burgt Studio and ModaScrap. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

Step 1. Cut a piece of White Cardstock to 2 3/4″ x 4 1/2″. From the Tags 9 & More – Sparkle die, place the round tag topper with hole cut out at the top of the cardstock tag. Run through die cutting machine. From a scrap piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock, die cut the reinforcement circle. Adhere the reinforcement circle overtop of the hole on the tag. Sprinkle Jade Magenta Nuance over the left hand side of the tag. Spritz with water. Ink the edges of the tag using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam. Set tag aside to dry.

Step 2. From the Party Accessories die, die cut the balloon elements and one of the party hat elements out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Lucky Clover Distress Ink over the entire surface of the balloon and solid hat. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink over the entire surface of the balloon string and top of the party hat. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink over the entire surface of the dotted party hat.

Step 3. From the Monkey die, die cut all of the elements out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Ground Expresso Distress Ink over the entire surface of the monkey head, tail, body, arms and legs. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Tea Dye Distress Ink over the entire surface of the monkey ears, face, hands and feet. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Black Soot Distress Ink over the entire surface of the eyes. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink over the entire surface of the banana.

Step 4. Die cut the 1 1/8″ Stitched Fishtail Banner out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the banner down to 3″. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the birthday sentiment from the Safari Sayings and stamp onto the banner. Ink the edges of the banner using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 5. Adhere the monkey together. Add the mouth in by drawing it in with a black pen.

Step 6. Adhere the banana underneath the monkey’s right hand. Adhere the ballon together and then adhere it to the left hand. Adhere the party hat together and adhere it on an angle on the monkey’s head.

Step 7. Foam square the birthday sentiment 1/2″ from the bottom of the tag. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the monkey to the left of the birthday sentiment.

Step 8. To finish off the gift tag, tie some twine through the top of the hole on the tag.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my cute gift tag.

How To Make This Love-Themed Present Set

February 26, 2019

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again. I am very honored to be able to continue as a guest blogger here at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog bi-monthly this year. As my very first project for this year, I´d like to share a fun love-themed present set with you.

Here is what the finished project looks like:

Here is what I did:

Step 1: Die cut the light purple polka dot paper with the present box with the Pillow Box with Handle die. Also adhere the same paper as a background piece to a white card base.
Step 2: Die cut the jar, the hearts, the tag and the straw from white Soft Finish Cardstock using the Summer Drink die cut die set.
Step 3: Now die cut the flamingos also from white Soft Finish Cardstock using the Flamingos die cut die set.
Step 4: Die cut a blue background piece from the Fly & Scrap paper collection papers with the Stitched Rectangles die.
Step 5: Using Distress Inks color the flamingos, the jar, the hearts and the straw. I used mainly various pink tones and an ink blending tool for this step. Stamp a sentiment onto the jar tag.
Step 6: Build the box, then assembly the flamingos and the jar together and adhere on place.
Step 7: Decorate with a matching colored ribbon.

I´ve also recorded a process video for your to watch to give you a better idea on each an every step. Hope you enjoy it!

This is all from me for today. This type of love-themed project is perfect for so many occasions. Depending on the colours you choose, you can create something for Mother´s Day or for a Wedding or for a baby shower even!

I hope I could inspired you to play a little with your papers and dies. See you in April again!
Happy crafting,

You Complete Me

February 21, 2019

February!…the month of love and romance! Hello. It’s Samantha sharing my You Complete Me card using Elizabeth Craft Designs Puzzle Heart die and Love Sentiments Stamp set. February happens to be my Wedding Anniversary month – so for me, it’s a doubly romantic time of year and a wonderful excuse (not that I need one) to create cards for the heart.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Die cut the two piece Puzzle Heart die using pattern paper and corrugated card stock.

Step 2: Adhere the detailed puzzle pieces to the corrugated heart.

Step 3: Stamp the sentiment on Kraft card measuring 7 cm x 2 cm.

Step 4: Adhere the heart and sentiment to a 10.5 cm x 15.5 cm Kraft card front.

Step 5: (Optional) Add a detailed machine stitched border (using a combination of straight lines and zigzags).

Step 6: Using scissor, cut any left over pattern paper and corrugated card into small uneven strips and adhere these as shown to your card front.

Step 7: Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the front of White Soft Finish Cardstock (measurement 3cm x 3cm).

Step 8: Die cut one heart puzzle piece.

Step 9: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of True Red Silk Microfine Glitter. Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 10: Use foam tape to adhere this puzzle piece to the card front. Embellish the card with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to a A6 card base.

How did you celebrate Valentine’s Day? I hope you liked today’s card tutorial – give it a try and create something beautiful for that special someone in your life.

Happy Crafting!

DIY Safari Animal Gift Box

February 17, 2019

Hi friends, it’s Sandy Diller with you today and I have a fun project to share.

First of all, I must tell you that this is not my original idea –– I saw it on Mixed Up Crafts with Samantha. She made her box from scratch and decorated it with a fairy. I decided to up-cycle a box from my stash and am so pleased with the way it turned out!

Here are a few photos of the box that any child (or adult) would enjoy receiving. Below, I have also provided a complete step by step video of the project as well as the links to all the Elizabeth Craft Designs products I used.


These cute jungle animals are perfect to decorate the top of the box.
When the box is opened, the adorable Monkey pops up. He is attached to a piece of acetate that folds down as the box closes.
The Safari Sayings Stamp Set is perfect for gift giving.

Watch the video tutorial below!

This is a fun and easy way to give a gift that is sure to be a hit! Hope you will give it a try.

See you soon,

How To Create This Zebra Pop-Up Card

February 16, 2019

Hello everyone,

It’s Joset here today sharing this super cute Zebra Pop-Up card. I really love the General Pop-Up dies, they are so fun and versatile! You can really turn almost any die into a pop-up. Today I decided to use this cute little zebra and make a “Love you just the way you are” card. Make sure to check out this video HERE that I created a while ago showing the General Pop-Up die set.


  1. Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock 90LB measuring 8 1/2″ x 11″ and score at 5 1/2″. Make sure the textured side is on the inside of the card.
  2. From the Adventure Edges 1 or 2 die set, use the cloudy looking edge to die cut a stencil. I used a piece of leftover backing from the ECD Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheets.
  3. Create a cloudy background on the inside of the card (top part) using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and a round Mini Ink Blending tool. For more info on how to create the background, click on this VIDEO.


4. Cut another stencil using the grass edge die from the Tree die set (or use the grass edge die from the Adventure Edges 1). Using the same technique as above, create a grass background on the bottom part of the card using Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks. Start from the top with Twisted Citron and work your way down. I used Mowed Lawn at the bottom 3 rows of grass.


5. Using the bottom left pop up die from the picture below, die cut a pop up in the middle of your score line. For more info, check out the video HERE.




6. Cut a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock 90LB measuring 9 1/4″ x 12″ and score at 6″. This card will be used to cover the whole of the pop up. Adhere your pop-up card on the inside. See picture below.


Now it’s time to decorate your pop up!

7. Cut a grass boarder from White Soft Finish Cardstock. Color with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. Adhere the grass boarder to the bottom of your card.

8. Create your zebra and adhere to the pop-up. For more info on how to create the zebra, watch this video HERE.

9. Cut a heart from white cardstock using the second smallest heart die from the Fitted Hearts set. Stamp sentiment with black ink. Color heart with Festive Berries Distress Ink. Adhere to card as shown.


  • Decorate the outside of the card.
  • Die cut a rectangle from white cardstock using one of the Fitted Rectangle dies. Adhere on the grass part of the card to write a note.


I hope you enjoyed creating this card as much as I did.

Happy crafting!

Party Animal

February 12, 2019

Karen here today! I’m excited to be using one of the new releases from Joset! There is an all-new amazing collection of characters and accessories. I used the Giraffe, Party Accessories, Adventure Edges 2 and Safari Sayings in my card today!

Here are the steps to replicate the card:

Step 1. From 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock, cut a rectangle measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″; score at 5-1/2″ and fold in half to create a top-fold card base.

Step 2. Die cut the fence from Adventure Edges 2 set and the mustache, party hat and bow tie from the Party Accessories set.

Step 3. Color the tops and bottoms of the fence with Copic E41, the bow tie with B41, the mustache with E43, and the hat with B41 and B95. Note: I decided later not to put the hat on my card, and instead I decorated my envelope with it!

Step 4. Using the Stitched Rectangle Dies, cut a piece of the Rainbow Bark 6×6 Collection with the fence adhered to it.

Step 5. With permanent black ink, stamp the sentiment from Safari Sayings onto the corner of the patterned paper.

Step 6. Die cut the pieces of the Giraffe Die using brown, gold and light beige cardstock. I adhered clear double sided adhesive to the back to make assembly easier. Adhere the giraffe to the card front, and add on the mustache and bow tie.

Step 7. Adhere the card front to the card base.

Step 8. Add a few enamel dots.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen
