Children´s Birthday Cards

August 12, 2018

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here again with this month’s guest designer blog post. I created two baby cards for July´s post and had quite a pile of leftover die cut pieces. That gave me the idea to use the bits to create a multi-color die cut background and focal point for a fun children´s birthday card. Continue Reading

Summery Sand Castle Pop-Up Card

Hi, it’s Elena today. Is it just me or are the days flying by this summer? Christmas card making time is creeping up on me, but I wanted to take a moment to celebrate summer before it’s over with a pop-up card featuring the Sand Castle die set from Joset van de Burgt. The set is so cute, and believe it or not this pop-up card is easy to put together and doesn’t take that long to make. Here’s how I created it: Continue Reading

Watercolor Cactus Card

Hi! It’s Elena today and I have been wanting to use the Cacti Clear Stamps from Krista Schneider for a while now. Cactus and succulent-themed cards seem to be very popular these days and Krista’s stamp set is so cute that I had to jump in and make my own version. I used two different easy watercolor techniques with a bit of die cutting and of course – glitter!! Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading

Lilac Trinket Box

May 29, 2018

Hi everyone, it’s Sandy Diller here with you today and I’m sharing a trinket box that I made to hold some treasures in my craft room.  This box is much more fun than a simple bag or envelope to hold small items that I have cleaned up from my work table while working on a project.  I have been wanting to make some of Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s flowers and this was the perfect time. It was fun and simple to make – so let’s get started.

Manly-ish Mouse Valentine

January 9, 2018
Manly-ish Mouse Valentine

When it comes to making a Valentine for a man, it can be a bit of a challenge. How do you balance the girly hearts and doilies with a man’s less glittery sensibilities? For today’s project I have tried to do that. There are definitely feminine elements at work in this card, but the color palette and simple images help keep it from becoming too delicate. Here’s how I made the card: Continue Reading

Shimmer Sheetz Sunday: Scalloped Circle Cards and GIVEAWAY Winners!

January 7, 2018

By Judi Kauffman

Before we start today’s tutorial — We’re excited to announce the names of the three winners in the Shimmer Sheetz GIVEAWAY. Each person will receive three 3-sheet 5″ x 12″ packs of Shimmer Sheetz in their choice of colors.
The winners are Crystal Williams, Angelina Quinones, and Marjorie Isaline Dumontier. 
 
To arrange for the shipment of your prize, please send an email with “WINNER” in the subject line and your mailing address within the email to Frances@ecraftdesigns.com by January 10.
We would also like to apologize for the technical difficulties that kept some of you from being able to leave comments on the blog. We are working hard to make sure this does not happen in the future.

I’m kicking off 2018 with some super simple cards. Care to join me? Each of them uses only two dies.

Though I chose the Scalloped Circles die set for the main element on all three – an embossed and lightly-sanded Shimmer Sheetz circle, you could easily substitute other circles from the collection, Stitched or Fitted, if you prefer smoother edges.

I chose an ornate embossing folder with ribbons and flowers and combined Fire Opal Gemstone Shimmer Sheetz with its coppery look and silver core (revealed when sanded) with solid color cardstock in shades of peachy pink and orange, a palette that skews toward the feminine without being overly sweet.

Switch the embossing folder and color combination as you choose! For example: With smooth-edged circles and an embossing folder that looks like metal plates (Gold, Silver or Basic Black Shimmer Sheetz) the cards will be decidedly masculine. With a folder like Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Heart Strings (Red or White Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz), you’re ready for Valentine’s Day!
