Hello Sunshine Inside Shadow Box Card

January 8, 2019

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here with my first post for 2019. Before we get started I wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year and I wish you all a fabulous year ahead. With the holidays over I thought I would share a card without a snow theme… so I am sharing some sunshine and color your way using the Color My Flowers Stamp set. Below are the instructions so you can make your own Floral Inside Shadow Box.

Step 1 – Trim a sheet of White Soft Finish Cardstock measuring 8 1/2″ x 11″ in half so you have 2 sheets measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.

Step 2 – The first sheet will be scored at 4 1/4″ an folded in half. You will need to trim 1/2″ from the back. See photos.

Step 3 – The second sheet will be scored at 1/2″, 4 1/4″ and 4 3/4″. Fold all and then snip about 1/8″ off from the 1/2″ section. See photos.

Step 4 – Using the first sheet you will emboss the Garden Notes – Frame It Stitched Ovals. This will be the front of your card. See photo.

Step 5 – Mask the outer section of the embossed area as you will be stamping on the inside of the embossed oval. Stamp Color My Flowers Clear Stamps all around the inner edge using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Remove the masking carefully.

Step 6 – Stamp Sentiment Banner underneath the Embossed Oval. I used Hello Sunshine!

Step 7 – The second sheet you will diecut the Garden Notes – Frame It Stitched Oval. This will be the opening of your shadow box which will be decorated. See photo.

Step 8 – Now we need to assemble the two sheets. Place 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape to second sheet on the 1/2″ area. Remove the relase sheet and align it with the crease of sheet one. Fold over the front and press firmly to secure it. See photo.

Step 9 – Turn it over and add 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the edge and crease. Remove the release sheet and close the right side and then fold the left side. See photos.

Step 10 – Stamp Color My Flowers on White Soft Finish Cardstock using Memento Ink for Alcohol Coloring. It will be the same flowers and leaves you used for the front of the card. Color in the stamped images using Alcohol Markers of your choice. I used Winsor & Newton Promarkers. Diecut the images with the matching dies. Adhere the flowers and leaves in the same position as the front and adhere to the inside of the Oval using Kid’s Choice Glue. For added interest use a White Gel Pen to add sme detail to the flowers.

Step 11 – For added interest and sparkle add some colored sequins to the center of the flowers on the front of the card.

I hope you enjoyed a break from all the Holiday and Winter cards. This card can be used for any occasion by changing the images, colors and sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Wishing You Well!

July 22, 2018

Hello crafters! I’m Diane Prince and this is my first time as a Guest Designer for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I got inspired to do the following card by the wonderful surroundings of the little cottage we rented this summer. The pathways through the woods around the cottage have been landscaped by the religious community that owns the land. They have set up small areas with flowers, benches, bird houses, etc., where you can pray, meditate or simply relax. While walking my dog I came across one of those areas where there is a lovely wishing well filled with flowers and I knew right away that I needed to capture that scene in a card with some of the wonderful dies from Susan’s Garden. Here’s how I got to “Wishing You Well” –

Circles Background – Best Wishes

June 27, 2018

Welcome – it’s Samantha, back again sharing one of my favourite ways to create with background stamps. I think background stamps are undervalued in my craft room. I have a rather large collection but hardly use them outside their main intended purpose as a background stamp. For today’s card I want to share a simple and effective way to create a focal point using a background stamp.

Birds and Branches Background Card

April 15, 2018

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here today, showcasing one of the 6″ x 6″ background stamps by Krista Schneider. For some, this is a bigger stamp than needed and most would cut out only a section of it, but below you will find a simple way to stamp only the section you want! By doing this your project will look natural and will give you multiple looks using one stamp. I’m providing all of the easy steps to replicate this card.

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.

Fall Blossom Time Card

October 16, 2017
Fall Blossom Time

It seems like we are all focused on Halloween and Christmas cards right now, but I thought it would be nice to take a moment to celebrate fall with a colorful bouquet of fall flowers using the new Blossom Time stamp set from Krista Schneider. I love how you can change the seasonal look of flower stamps just by changing their colors and I personally can’t resist all of the yellow, orange and red tones of fall.

Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading

Chillin Snowman Birthday Card

October 12, 2017

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s Frances here and it is my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team. Today I am playing with a couple of the Becky Seddon die sets, Stylish Snowman and Reindeer, to make a winter birthday card. I have created a mama and baby snowman for this fun card. Becky’s Stylish Snowman die set comes with lots of different options to create unique snow characters. This design could easily be changed to become a Christmas card or card for a winter birthday just by using different sentiments.

I love pop-up cards, so I have used the new General Pop-Ups die set to create the base of my card. On the front I used a couple of the new A Way with Words dies. You can use all or part of what I have done when creating your own, depending on what you want to do.
