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!

Mornings

January 18, 2020

What’s your favorite part of the day? Mine is probably the morning –– peaceful or productive, the day hold more possibility in the morning!

I knew I wanted to make a peaceful scene from the Asian-themed dies and decided I needed some sort of background to tie it all in together. I played with my watercolors a bit and came up with a very soft background. I knew I would end up covering much of my background with dies so I didn’t let the lack of watercolor skills bother me (too much.) Lol!

Step one: Paint a background with some water, sky, and a tree on a watercolor sheet. Add some land and grass to the forefront of the cardbase.

A very elementary painting but it’ll work!

Step 2: Die cut the bridge out of light blue cardstock and all others out of white cardstock. Use Distress Inks to color the cattails, stone pagoda and rocks. Use Copic markers to add some shade and dimension to the bridge.

Step 3: Adhere all dies as seen in completed picture above.

Step 4: Stamp and die cut with a circle the quote from A bit of Fragrance clear stamp set. I also matted the circle out of dark blue cardstock – the same one I use for the card base.

All done!

Thanks for looking and hope you have a wonderful day.

Sneak Peek: Mermaid Kisses

January 13, 2020

Hello Friends, it’s Sandy Diller here with you today. I’m excited to be sharing some awesome upcoming dies and stamps from Joset Designs.

I’m thinking ahead to spring and summer and these adorable ocean themed dies and stamps are just perfect. This entire line will be available on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website very soon so keep an eye out for them! Meanwhile, here’s a little sneak peek for you.

This little Mermaid just couldn’t be any cuter and she goes together easily -so let’s get started.

I began by making my ocean background. I used Yupo and alcohol ink but you can use any paper for this. I cut a piece of Yupo Paper, which is really plastic paper, 5.25″ X 4″. I applied the alcohol ink solution over the top of the paper, spread it as evenly as possible and then dropped two colors of blue alcohol ink into it. Using a fan brush – I swiped through the ink with a horizonal motion to make it look like an ocean current. Alcohol inks dry very quickly so you need to start brushing right away.

The finished card size is 5.5″ X 4.25″ so I started with a Soft Finish Cardstock base that is 5.5″ X 11″, then scored and folded in half. On the front section I placed ECD Clear Double Sided Adhesive around the edges as shown above.

After removing the adhesive liner – Silk Microfine Glitter was sprinkled on.

After brushing off the excess glitter, I burnished the glitter with my finger, trapping it in the adhesive. This will make a glittery boarder for my ocean panel.

I really like this color combo and the glittered boarder adds to that ocean feel.

After setting my front panel aside, I cut out the cute little mermaid, some sand (using real sand paper that I barrowed from the garage) using the new Ocean Edges. The hair was cut using White Soft Finish cardstock and then I used some distress ink to color it. I used Fossilized Amber and Wild Honey.

For some parts of this adorable Mermaid – I cut the pieces using Double Sided Adhesive that was added to the cardstock and then die cut as shown below. I thought it would be fun to add more glitter.

As you can see from the photo above, it is easy to add the facial features on the Mermaid because the die makes an impression that shows you where they go. Easy Peasy. The die set also has pieces that cut out the eyes and lips for you.

Ok, fins have been glittered, lips, hair and eyes have been added – let’s put her together. By the way, you can also make a boy mermaid as the die set contains two different pieces for the hair.

Here the sand has been added along with some coral from the Seaweed set and some Starfish from the Diving Accesories set. Some little bubbles have also shown up and they were made using the ECD Transparent Craft Drops. See below for how I made these ahead of time and simply added them.

Because sometimes I’m not patient or careful with drops, I like to make mine ahead of time. I do this by dropping Craft Drops on a piece of liner that I have saved from the Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Once they are dry I simply roll up the liner and save them until I need them and then lift them off the liner and glue them on the project. This saves time and frustration.

Mermaid Kisses & Starfish Wishes from Joset’s new set was stamped on a vellum banner and added to the top of the card with more bubbles. This card was finished off with more coral and a seashell.

Thanks for joining me today, I have enjoyed sharing my card with you.

Until next time – happy crafting,

Sandy

Sunset Scene Card

January 8, 2020

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Before I start I want to wish you all a Happy New Year. All the best for a healthy, prosperous and crafty year ahead.

One of my favourite dies last year was the Village Edges. I showcased it to create a Holiday Scene, but today I want to show you how versatile it is for any occasion. Below are the steps to create your own Sunset Scene card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4” and fold in half for a horizontal side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”. Apply Distress Oxide Inks using a foam applicator. Starting from the bottom working upwards apply Wild Honey, Ripe Persimmon, Fired Brick and Dusty Concord. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Diecut Village Edges using Black Cardstock. Adhere the bottom layer using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive leaving a 1/4” border. Do not adhere the top layer yet.

Step 4 – Diecut Words 2 – Thinking Of You 3 times using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere Kids Choice Glue and stack up the Diecuts. Apply Distress Oxide Ripe Persimmon Completely over the top layer, apply Fired Brick just to the top edge. Sprinkle Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it with a Heat Tool. Repeat this 2 more times but ink with Versamark. Adhere the sentiment using Kids Choice Glue to top layer of the Village Edges.

Step 5 – Here I did some stamp surgery to get the exact Sentiment. Stamp Safari Saying “Have A” using Versamark. In another sentiment I stamped just the “N”. Next stamp “Birthday” again using Versamark. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and heat set it with a Heat Tool. Adhere the top layer Village Edges to the card using Foam Tape.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the Village Edges used in another occasion. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

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!

Hello Sunshine –– Summer Dreaming!

December 15, 2019

Good morning! Laura here today! It is very cold here right now and I am missing the heat of summer! Since it is winter and I can’t actually enjoy the summer right now I did the next best thing and created a summer layout!

To create this layout:

Step 1) Cut your papers, 1 at 12×12, 1 at 10×12 and 1 at 11×12 then ink the edges and assemble
Step 2) Die cut 4 circles of varying sizes. I used 5 1/4, 4 1/4, 2 3/4 and 2 1/4 in the stitched circles

Step 3) Die cut one sand castle and one palm tree then ink and assemble

Step 4) Die cut two tags and ink the edges – I used the tag from the planner essentials 7
Step 5 ) Die cut the filmstrip from planner essentials filmstrip

Step 6) Add your title and assemble

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A Panda Just For You

December 14, 2019

Diana here! My youngest son loves all things panda. He could say the name of his panda lovey before he could say his own name. Inevitably, he will get something panda related for his birthday and Christmas. Being a prepared momma, I made this card for him to use as a thank you card once Christmas is over.

Els has a great video on how to put the panda together so I won’t go through it here. The only thing I added was to sponge some pink on the paws and cheeks.

Can you see the Symbol background is on a sheet of Press and Seal?

I started with a white background and then sponged some yellow and green on the bottom. This softens the background and makes the background not so stark because I knew I wanted to add the Symbol background to it. In the picture above, you can see that the negative of the Symbol background is all aligned because before I took it off the cutting mat, I pressed a sheet of Press and Seal on it. Then I could just add glue and place it directly onto the background. So easy and quick!

Add some grass with some quick upstrokes of Copic markers

I almost did not add grass to the background but when I did my layout with the panda and bamboo, it looked as if the panda was floating. Adding the grass anchored him a bit. And the good news is that it does not have to be perfect as most of it will be covered by the panda.

All done!

I die cut the bamboo and the A Way With Words “for you” out of green cardstock and added shading by coloring with a darker shade of green Copic. I’ve found this keeps my die cuts some dimension.

This little guy is so cute!

Thanks for looking and hope it gives you ideas on how to personalize your thank you cards!
