How To Make These Cute Birthday Tag Critters

March 12, 2019

Hey Friends. It’s EK Gorman here today sharing some tags I created using the some of the new critter dies sets.

One of my favorite things about the new critter dies from Joset is that they are so incredibly versatile. What was originally designed for some safari fun, can easily be turned into a bit of everyday birthday day labels. Today, I am taking a few of the new critter dies and turning them into the perfect tags to hang from birthday presents for both the old and young.

Step One: Die cut the piece from the Zebra die set and some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two: Color the zebra strip die cuts with some alcohol markers. I used N8 copics.

Step Three: Color the hair, tail and hooves with alcohol markers. I used N6, N8, and 100.

Step Four: Color the body, head, legs and ears with alcohol markers. I used N0, N2, and N4.

Step Five: Color the nose and ears with alcohol markers. I used R00, R20, and R22.

Step Six: Assemble the body of the Zebra using Kids Choice Glue.

Step Seven: Using Kids Choice glue, add the zebra stripes to the body. Tweezers help in the placing of these small parts. I used the ones from the 4pc all Metal tool set.

Step Eight: Repeat Steps one through seven, but using the Monkey die set and the Little Chick die set. The Monkey parts were colored with E21, E23, E25, E27 and E29. The Little Chick was colored with Y00, Y02, Y06 and Y08 plus YR15 and YR16.

Step Nine: Die cut balloons, party hats and fun party accessories from the Party Accessories die set. Color them with alcohol markers. I used RV00, RV02, RV04 and RV06 for the pink accessories, R05, R24, R29 and R89 for the red accessories, Y21, Y26 and Y28 for the gold crown, B12, B16 and B18 for the blue balloon, and N4, N6, and N8 for the black mustache. Adhere the accessories to the critters with Kids Choice Glue.

Step Ten: Trim a piece of Ladybug Red Soft Finish Cardstock, True Blue Soft Finish Cardstock and Spring Green Soft Finish Cardstock to 6×6 inches. Then die cut the top of the tag from the Tags & More Lattice die set. Trim off any excess paper.

Step Eleven: Add the lattice die cut effect to both the top and the bottom of the tags using the Tags & More Lattice dies.

Step Twelve: Add tag reinforcements from the tag die set to the top of the tags. I mixed and matched paper colors to add a bit of whimsy to the card.


Step Thirteen: Adhere the critters and party accessories to the tags. Stamp a sentiment onto each tag using the Safari Sayings sentiment stamp set. Finally, add some colorful ribbon to the top of each tag. I also added some glossy accents to the top of all they party accessories so that the accessories were shinny.

Thank you for peeking in today to my project today. I hope you think they are as much fun as I do. Make sure to share how you are playing with the collection of new critter dies over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Family Page.

Until then, happy crafting!

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!
