I Melt for Cocoa

February 7, 2019

Since we are in full swing of winter, that means in my house we are in full swing of cocoa consumption. It seems every other day new snow is falling and tired kiddos need a little post school pick me up of sweet hot chocolate. So today, I thought I would whip up a little zero calorie treat that fits the seasons of warming up in the form of a mug of cocoa and a melting marshmallow.

Step One: Stamp the focal images from the Marshmallow Snowmen stamp set onto some 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. Color the images in with alcohol markers. I used my copics.

Step Two: Die cute the images using the coordinating Marshmallow Snowmen die set.

Step Three: Using the Dashing Circles die set, die cut a ring from a piece of Dusky Sky Soft Finish Cardstock to create the rim of the mug. Die cut a circle that will fit inside the mug rim from a piece of Bronze Metallic Shimmer Sheetz to be the cocoa.

Step Four: Using a piece of polka dot printed paper from the Sweet Vintage Rose collection, die cut it with the Dashing Rectangle die set.

Step Five: To create the handle of the mug, die cut an ‘O’ from some Dusky Sky Soft Finish Cardstock. Discard the ‘O’, and use the negative scrap from the inside of the letter. It sounds funny, but works perfectly.

Step Six: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the printed paper and mug/cocoa onto an A2 card frame.

Step Seven: Using some 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, add the mug handle.

Step Eight: Add a bit of 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive to the bottom of the melting marshmallow. Add some three-dimensional squares to the top of the image. Adhere it to the shimmer sheetz circle. Adhere the stamped banner above the mug.

Step Nine: Stamp in brown ink, the sentiment from the Cute Winter Sentiments onto some 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. Trim the sentiment and matte it with some Rust Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere it to the bottom left of the A2 card.

Step Ten: Using the same brown ink that you used to stamp the sentiment distress the edges of the A2 card frame.

What you get in the end is a fun mug of cocoa that is sure to brighten any child or chocolate-lover’s day.

Thanks for peeking in, and I hope you are staying warm.

Blossom, Bloom & Grow

January 29, 2019

Hello! Samantha here. Welcome to my first blog post write-up for Elizabeth Craft Designs for 2019! Today I’m sharing a card I made using Krista’s Garden Party Clear Stamp set and Co-ordinating Die. I was drawn to this set because of the cat –– I’m more of a dog person but I have many friends and their young daughters who love their feline pets and thought it was a much needed theme to add to my card stash.

Card Instructions

Step 1: On Copic-friendly cardstock, stamp the lanterns 5x on the right side of your card front.

Step 2: Stamp an additional 3x lanterns, the cat image and the sentiments on Copic-friendly cardstock and die cut them out.

Step 3: Colour the die cut images with Copic markers (or your preferred choice of colouring medium).

COPIC MARKERS USED: G14/G16/YR12/YR14/YR16/R12/R14/R17

Step 4: Assemble card – Adhere the 3x die cut lanterns on top of the first three stamped lanterns on your card front with foam tape. Colour in the last two lanterns with Copic markers. Adhere the cat and the sentiment with foam tape.

Step 5: Adhere card front to an A6 side folding card base. Embellish with sequins and a twine bow.

I love the bright colours and the feminine feel this card has. It’s the perfect card to give to a cat loving girl on their birthday. I loved it so much I also decided to create a similar layout with the additional images in this stamp set.

This card uses the same colour scheme and a similar layout –– both images are really perfect to create a beautiful card for a young girl on her special day. Give the card instructions a go –– I used Copics as my preferred colouring medium but kept the colouring and shading very simple. You could use any colouring tool!

Happy Crafting!

Samantha

Peace, Love, and Joy

November 29, 2018

Hey Friends!  It’s EK here to share a bit of holiday fun.  I don’t know about you, but I think these days people take the holidays a little too seriously and we all could inject some fun back into our holidays.  I think we as adults forget sometimes what the magic of Christmas should be, and instead craft and create elegant and fancy holiday decor.  Today I am trying to invent with my child’s mind and create a really fun and magic-filled project.

Hot Chocolate Season

Hey Friends.  It’s EK, and I am sneaking in today to share a little card project that is hoping for some cooler weather and warmer drinks.  It might be October, but here it is still hot, hot, hot, and I am so ready for sweaters and hot chocolate.  And while there is not a break in the weather in the forecast, Krista’s new stamp collection perfectly evokes what I want it to be like outside.

Fun In The Sun Shaker Card

Fun In The Sun Shaker Card

Hello! It’s Elena today with a Fun in the Sun Shaker Card. I was able to capture (I hope) the essence of summer with a bright color palette of turquoise, yellow, orange, red and white along with great stamped images from the Sun & Surf clear stamp set. Although it is a “happy summer” card, you could easily adapt it as a birthday card, especially for a teen or a guy who likes to surf.  Continue Reading

A Little Rain

January 29, 2018

 

Hello everyone!  EK Gorman here hoping your day is filled with sunshine instead of rain.  Where I am, it is no longer as cold as it was earlier this month and all the snow is gone, but now our skies are filled with clouds and rain, so I felt it was only fitting to create a card that brings out the hope of sunshine despite the wet weather.  The new stamp set from Krista Schneider, April Showers, is the perfect stamp set for such a card.  I created a little rainy Copic-colored card that celebrates the sunshine within the showers.
