A Way With Words Cardmaking Silk Microfine Glitter

You Were Born With Greatness

February 15, 2020

Hi! Diana here with one of my favorite dies to work with –– anything with butterflies! I love the color scheme I ended up with but purple is hard to photograph –– and glitter even more so! But this one is very pretty in real life so I hope you give it a try.

  1. I started with a light green sheet of cardstock measuring 4.5″ x 6.5″. I used Distress Oxides Lucky Clover and Cracked Pistachio to sponge around the edges and Squeezed Lemonade in the center to give it a sort of glow. I splattered with water and pat dry.
  2. Die cut the Butterfly Spray out of the top half of the colored cardstock and stamp the You were born with greatness in the bottom left corner of the sheet.
Make sure the area overs the butterfly spray.

3. With a bigger sheet of purple cardstock, I marked the approximate area behind the butterfly spray and covered that part with double sided adhesive.

Looks like a mess but will be so pretty once you overlay the negative of the butterfly die cut over it.

4. I then added a mix of Silk Microfine Glitter over the area. I initially wanted just the Amethyst but then lightened it with the Bright Cranberry and Silver Sands glitter. Rub in the glitter and use a Swiffer sheet to wipe off any excess.

The glitter is much brighter and more vibrant in real life.

5. Adhere the front to the purple sheet and trim if necessary. I then placed it all on a white card base.

Thanks so much for looking! I hope this card signals spring to come –– or 3 feet of snow. Nothing in between, thank you. 🙂

Valentine’s Day Tag… And Secret Recipe For Extra Sparkle

February 11, 2020

Hi there! It’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this cute Valentine’s Day Tag:

Step 1: Die Cutting

  • Cut out the cupcake and some hearts with the help of the Peek a Boo Love set and two of the smaller tags from the Planner Essentials 2 set from white Soft Finish Cardstock

Step 2: Adding Color

  • Color the cupcake and the hearts with Alcohol Markers

Step 3: Creating the Background

  • Add color with Distress Oxide Ink (Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers) and a Mini Ink Blending Tool
  • Cut the colored tag apart by using one of the Valentine’s Edges dies
  • Puzzle the pieces together on the second tag
  • Cut out additional little dots, color them red and puzzle them into the openings

Step 4: Stamping

  • Add more texture to the background by stamping the XOXO from the Love Sentiments Set with Versafine Clair Morning Mist

Step 5: Finishing Touches

  • Add some highlights with a white gel pen
  • Dye a piece of seam binding with Distress Ink (Picked Raspberry) and thread it through the hole of the tag

Secret Recipe!

  • Mix some transparent Craft Drops and Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to create your own glitter paste
  • Use a stylus to add it to the little red dots on the tag (It’s hard to capture the sparkle in a photo but I’m sure you get the idea!)

Hope you enjoyed my tutorial for this Valentine’s Day Tag! Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs,

Valentine’s Day Card

January 23, 2020

Hello everyone, it’s Sanna Lippert here! I’m so thrilled to be able to continue sharing projects as a guest blogger here on Elizabeth Craft Designs blog again!!! For today’s post I wanted to create a Valentine’s Day card as sweet as sugar, but one that is still really easy to make… just in case you want to make a series of them!

Here is how to create the card:

Step 1: Pick several sheet of Soft Finish Cardstock in various pink and light purple tones. I used a dark and light pink one as well as a very light purple/lilac tone.
Step 2: Die cut borders from the chosen cardstock colors – one border set per colour – using the Valentine’s Edges die cut set.
Step 3: Next adhere a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto a piece of white cardstock.
Step 4: Die cut the white, adhesive covered piece using the solid heart die of the Heart Cutouts die cut die.
Step 5: Next die cut the inner piece of the Heart Cutouts heart from the dark pink Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere these pieces together.
Step 6: Place the heart into a coffee filter and pour Bright Cranberry Silk Microfine Glitter over the tiny hearts and brush the residue off with a paint brush. Pour the residue back into the glitter jar and polish the glitter using your finger.
Step 7: Take a piece of black cardstock and stamp a Valentine’s sentiment with embossing ink – using the Love Sentiments clear stamp set – and heat emboss using white fine embossing powder. Fussy cut – or use a banner die cut die – into right size.
Step 8: Adhere all pieces onto a white card base using Clear Double Sided Adhesive tape for the border pieces and the heart and 3D foam for the sentiment. Decorate with Craft Drops (optional).

I’ve also recorded a short process video for you to watch to give you a better idea on each and every step! I hope you enjoy it!

Wishing you a lovely, crafty day!

Happy Birthday!

January 19, 2020

Hello! Welcome! Samantha here –– January marks my birthday month! So I thought it fitting to create a fun, bright birthday card using a few of my favourite Elizabeth Craft Designs smaller dies.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Cut pink card stock to fit an A6 card base. (Measurements: 114mm x 162mm)

Step 2: Die cut 6 squares (from pattern paper and cardstock) using the smallest Fitted Rounded Square die.

Step 3: Die cut 6 squares (from pattern paper and cardstock) using the smallest Stitched Rounded Square die.

Step 4: Using pattern paper and cardstock die cut the small cupcakes 6x.

Step 5: Assemble all the die cut pieces as shown below. Mix and match the pattern paper and cardstock as desired.

Step 6: Adhere the assembled die-cuts to your card front. Stamp the sentiment using black ink.

Step 7:  Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to pink cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Silver). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 8: Die cut the small hearts, and adhere these to the cupcakes on your card front. Embellish the card with enamel dots and a twine bow.

(Optional: Add machine stitched details.)

Step 9: Adhere card front to an A6 card base.

I hope you enjoyed today’s fun card tutorial showing you how I like to use smaller dies. Cupcakes are the best! I certainly will be having a few real ones one my birthday to go along side my cupcake greeting card.

Happy Crafting!

Santa Is Coming!

December 24, 2019

Here Comes Santa Claus! Hello – Samantha here…with my last Christmas card for the year! I completely love the idea of Santa’s alternative mode of transportation portrayed in this card…I can totally see him giving Rudolf the night off and flying around in this modified Safari Jeep!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Cut green card stock to fit an A6 card base. (Measurements: 114mm x 162mm)

Step 2: Die cut the Adventures Edges wave die using white cardstock and to create a snowy background. Adhere to card base – trim.

Optional: Add machine stitched details.

Step 3: Using red, black and white cardstock die cut the Safari Jeep. Put aside the grill, side mirrors, and head lights to die cut (see Step 6) with silk microfine glitter.

Step 4: Stamp the sentiment on the ‘Safari Jeep’ bumper.

Step 5: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to red cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Light Gold). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 6: Die cut the remaining ‘Safari Jeep’ parts – grill, side mirrors, and head lights.

Step 7: Die cut the Santa using red, white, cream and black cardstock.

NOTE: Only the top half of Santa is required for this card.

Step 8: Assemble and adhere the Santa die cut peices together.

Step 9: Adhere the wheels to the card front, and start to assemble the Safari Jeep.

Step 10: Adhere Santa to the card front. Using pattern paper and cardstock die cut the presents (from Santa’s Sleigh die) and adhere them to the card front.

TIP: Before permanently adhering the Santa and presents check that they align with the Jeep.

Step 11: Adhere the Jeep over the Santa and presents. Adhere additional die cut presents to the card front. Die cut and adhere Santa’s bell using gold card. Embellish with sequins and a twine bow.

Happy Crafting –– hope you enjoyed my final Christmas card for this year and that Santa will be visiting you tonight (preferably with some brand new crafting goodies!)

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Magic

December 21, 2019

Merry Christmas!  It’s Suzanne here today with a last minute Christmas card!

When I created this stamp, I knew it would be versatile when used with the dies.  And when I went to create this card, I was torn!  What would the focus be?  Christmas?  Believe?  Magic?  We have all three dies available to choose from!  I guess I should make one of each card, but because glitter was on my mind, I decided that a shiny “Magic” would be the focus.

This is how you can make this card:
