A Way With Words Cardmaking Inspiration from the Design Team Peel-Off Stickers Soft Finish Cardstock

Rudolph’s Christmas

October 26, 2019

Hey Friends! It’s EK and I am wondering if you are you as excited as I am at how easy the new 2019 Christmas Release from Suzanne Cannon is going to make holiday card making this year. No seriously…it is going to make crafting so much easier this holiday season.

Today I am playing with the brand new A Way With Words Flourished Deer die and the new Merry Christmas 3 die to create this simple, yet fun holiday card.

Step One: Trim a piece of Bonnie Blue Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 inches and fold and score to create a 6×6 card frame.

Step Two: Using the A Way With Words Flourished Frames stencil, blend some ink onto the card frame to stencil in a frame. I used Candied Apple Distress Oxide.

Step Three: Using some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock, die cut the new Flourished Deer die set. Color the image using your alcohol markers. I used my copics in E31, E33, and E37 for the deer’s body, R46 and R89 for his collar and nose, and Y23, Y26, and Y28 for his bell. I also used some N2 and N4 for the flourished areas.

Step Four: Using some Kids Choice Glue, adhere the nose, collar and bell onto the deer die cut. Adhere the die to the center of the card frame.

Step Five: Die cut the A Way With Words Merry Christmas 3 die from some Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere the Merry Christmas onto the card frame. I let them be off center for a fun twist.

Step Six: To add a little extra glam to the card I added a strip of silver peel off sticker from the Corners and Borders Straight peel off sticker sheet.

I hope you are as excited as I am about this new Christmas Release. Make sure you pop over and check out the whole new line.

Have A Magical Day

June 15, 2019

Hi Everyone!

It’ EK here and I am popping into share with you some ways to embrace the magic of the new Joset’s critter die collection.

There really is something extra special about this new line of dies and stamps and I want to share a couple of ways to simplify when creating with them.

Step One: Die cut the new Elephant die set out of some Dove Gray Soft Finish Cardstock. By using the the Dove Gray cardstock, you already have a great base color for your elephant.

Step Two: Using some Distress Oxide in Spun Sugar, dab some color onto the Elephants inner ears to soften the color.

Step Three: Using Distress Oxide in Worn Lipstick, dab color onto the inside portion of the inner ear and the die cuts hearts from the Elephant die set. It does not take more than a few good dabs to fully color the hearts with the ink.

Step Four: Using both Distress Oxides in Pumice Stone and Hickory Smoke, blend color around the edges of all the elephant pieces. Go further into the elephant with the pumice stone and just on the edges with the darker gray. By coloring the pieces with this simple technique, it gives the elephant both depth and visual interest.

Step Five: Using Kids Choice glue, adhere the pieces of the elephant together.

Step Six: Using the new Hats die set, die cut the unicorn head piece out of 90lb White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Seven: Using alcohol markers quickly color the base of the headband. I used R20, R22, and R24 copic markers.

Step Eight: Using alcohol markers, color the inner ear and horn. I used N0 and N2 copic markers. Then using a glitter pen, add glitter details.

Step Nine: Using Kids Choice Clue, adhere the unicorn head band to the elephant’s head.

Step Ten: Create a simple yet magical background for the the card by smooching Distress Ink onto a 4.25×5.5 inch piece of 90lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. I used the same colors I used on the elephant, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Pumice Stone and Hickory Smoke, drying each layer between application.

Step Eleven: Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the elephant and hearts to the background.

Step Twelve: Stamp a sentiment to the card using the new Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set. I stamped the sentiment in Worn Lipstick and the heart in Hickory Smoke.

Step Thirteen: To add a bit more visual interest without much effort, add strips of peel off stickers from the Corners and Borders Straight sticker sheet around the edges of the background.

Step Fourteen: Adhere the background to an A2 card frame made from 90lb White Soft Finish Cardstock.

I hope you enjoy seeing how I created this simple yet magical card featuring the new Elephant die set.

Thank you for peeking in and make sure you share all your ECD critter creations over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Family Facebook page. Until then, happy crafting!

How To Make This Mother’s Day Gift Box

May 6, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Happy Mother’s Day Gift Box. Mother’s Day is only 6 days away, so why not make a pretty gift box for that gift for mom?

To create this gift box, I’ve used dies and patterned paper from ModaScrap as well as dies from Joset Designs. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

Step 1. Choose a piece of patterned paper from the ModaScrap – Butterfly Dream Paper Pack. Die cut the Star Pillow Box die out of the patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of the box using Ground Espresso Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 2. From the Words 3 – Happy Holidays die, die cut the “Happy Mother’s Day” sentiment out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 3. Die cut three Leafy Branch 2 out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Shabby Shutters Distress Ink over the entire surface of each leafy branch. Trim the branches to your desired length.

Step 4. Choose two of the Happy Flowers. Die cut the two Happy Flowers twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, bend Picked Raspberry Distress Ink over the entire surface of the happy flowers.

Step 5. Assemble your Star Pillow Box.

Step 6. Adhere two of the happy flowers together and finish off the center of the flower with a Transp. Glitter/Gold Dots. Adhere the last two happy flowers together and finish off the center of the flower with a Transp. Glitter/Gold Dots.

Step 7. Start by adhering two of the leafy branches on the left hand side of the star pillow box. Adhere the two happy flowers overtop of the leafy branches.

Step 8. To finish off the pillow box, adhere the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment to the right hand side of the pillow box.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Happy Mother’s Day Gift Box.

Recreate This Bright Card For Someone Sweet!

March 17, 2019

Hello! It’s Wanda today, sharing a bright, fun card that is perfect to give someone who has brightened your day in some way.

Check out my tutorial below for this sweet card below:

On a piece of 5″ x 7″ white Yupo paper, I worked up my background using Alcohol Ink (Ranger) and canned air. Put a drop of ink on your Yupo….

… and then use the canned air to move the ink. For this piece I was trying to blow straight down in the center of each drop of ink. Tip: If the ink doesn’t move how you want, just add another drop and blow again.

I continued this step until I was happy with my piece.

Then, I die cut Sweet (A Way With Words, Sweet Smiles Set) from adhesive-backed craft foam, placing the die on the adhesive side.

I cut a piece of hard plastic packaging, large enough to adhere the word to. Then I removed the adhesive liner from the foam and stuck the word to the plastic.

My initial plan was to use Alcohol Lift Ink and my “foam stamp” to lift and then stamp the word Sweet on my card; however, my Alcohol Lift Ink is hiding from me.

Plan B – I used Archival Ink in a light color to remove color from my alcohol ink background. I stamped Sweet with the Archival Ink, blotted where I stamped with a paper towel to remove excess moisture and then rubbed/buffed the area to bring out the lift. I repeated this all the way down my paper.

I decided to trim 1/8″ off the right side and top of my paper so that I could attach this to a 5″ x 7″ folded card base. These strips can be used on other projects, or on the inside of the card to give it a little extra pizzazz.

I added an edge around my panel using Gold Paint and Light Gold Silk Microfine Glitter. Working one edge of the panel at a time so the paint wouldn’t start to dry, I sponged on the paint and then added the glitter. The glitter sticks perfectly to the wet paint. Once the paint is dry you can remove the excess glitter.

You Are (A Way With Words, You Are Perfect Set) and Sweet were die cut from both white and yellow cardstock. They were layered together, white on the bottom and yellow on the top, offsetting each just a little bit.

Attach Clear Double Sided Adhesive to White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die Cut the detailed butterfly (A Way With Words, Butterfly Flourish Set), placing the die against the adhesive side.

Remove the adhesive from the die cut and add Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to the butterfly. Remove excess glitter and burnish with your fingertip.

Add fiber to the left side of the background panel, and then adhere panel to folded card. Attach die cuts as shown. The butterfly was glued on by just the body area so the wings can pop up, adding an extra 3D element.

Glitter Dot Stickers (Silver/Gold) were added to the butterfly body as well.

I hope you like today’s card!!!! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Hugs, Wanda

Gingerbread Christmas Wreath Card

November 3, 2017
Gingerbread Christmas Wreath Card

Although I love the traditional deep reds, greens and golds of the holidays, on this gingerbread wreath card I instead used brighter pinks, greens and purples to create a fun, kid-friendly Christmas card. To me, the vibrant colors remind me of the candy pieces that typically adorn gingerbread houses and people and really captures the “Candy Land” feeling. Yum!

Here’s how I made the card:

Mittens and Hats for Year-Round Fun

May 7, 2017

Mittens and Hats for Year-Round Fun
By Judi Kauffman

I’ve put away my winter coat and boots, but not my Winter Hat and Winter Mittens die sets! Looking at shapes in new ways, thinking outside of the box, is lots of fun and I hope you’ll join me. They’re not just mittens, they’re birds and people and who knows what else. They’re not just hats, they’re cats and dogs and any number of other things.

All you need to do is die cut the mittens and hats from white cardstock (the solid shapes, not the overlays), turn them upside down and sideways and see what you see! Get the kids in on the act, too. They’ll discover all sorts of things that adults might never envision.
