Happy Magnets

April 25, 2019

Hello everyone!

It’s Sara here today, and I have a new fun project for you:magnets! These magnets are really simple to make and they can be used in many different ways.

All you have to do is:

  • Take your stamps (Cacti, Laundry Party, Patchwork and Puppies stamp sets), stamp all the subjects with Ditress Ink Antique Linen on cardstock and color them all with no line technique and your favourite watercolors.
  • Let them dry and die cut all the pieces with the matching dies. To thicken the single magnet, just die cut the same design multiple times from your cardstock. To help you stick the pieces together, use Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheets.
  • To finish the magnets simply add a little circle magnet to the back and you’re done!

Hope you like it! Let me know if you try it in the comments below!

Pretty Pink Cosmos

April 23, 2019

Hi Everyone!

Angela here today with a card for a young woman who is achieving wonderful things these days. With a background created with Ken Oliver’s Color Burst powders and a die from 1168-Bead Strings 1, I’ve put together  the perfect place for Susan’s 1637-Garden Notes Cosmos. One of those lovely summer flowers that comes in lots of pretty colours.

Here’s how it came together:

1- Using the Color Burst powders and water on water colour paper, create a background in the colours of your choice.

2- Cut a 5.5 X 5.5 inch square of 90lb Soft Finish cardstock. Using the thicker curved die cut across the cardstock at about 4 inches from the bottom at a slightly downward angle. Save the larger bottom piece and the ribbon. Attach them to the created background using Double sided tape.

3- Cut a piece of coordinating cardstock, 5.75 X 5.75 inches, and use it to mat the background piece.

4-Fasten all of this to a 6X6 inch card base made from 110lb Soft Finish cardstock.

5-Cut flower pieces and leaves for 5 Cosmos. Colour using Copic markers. Use yellow pollen to finish centers as shown in Susan’s Garden Club Face book video.

6-Shape and create the flowers, using the 4 piece tool kit and Kid’s Choice glue.

7-Adhere to card front as shown in photo.

8-Stamp sentiment onto banner and fasten with foam adhesive and there you have it!

Thanks so much for stopping by ,

Love You To The Moon

April 22, 2019

Hi there! It’s Suzanne here today with a card full of love.

There are many ways you could make this card, just by changing the coordinating paper.  This design was created for a younger person, but I challenge you to make one for someone in your life by changing up the colours and patterns –– I’d love to see them! Go ahead and share them on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Family Facebook Page!

LOTS of Luck

April 14, 2019

Judi here! Graduation time is coming soon and I thought it would be fun to have a stack of Good Luck cards ready to send. I made them with my ‘By-the-Batch’ method –– one morning of cutting and layering and all ten cards were done. Suzanne Cannon’s Good Luck die is a perfect size for a card front!

Good Luck cards are useful year-round, just right for friends starting a job or moving to a new home, picking themselves up after a divorce, entering retirement, opening a business, entering retirement, and more…

Here’s how to whip up an easy batch of Good Luck cards:

  1. Choose cardstock and patterned papers in coordinating colors to go with the ten 4” x 5” pieces in a Shimmer Sheetz Iridescent Sampler Pack. (Or choose the Gemstone Sampler Pack.)
  2. Using the smallest die in the Stitched Ovals die set, cut a cardstock oval to layer onto each piece of Shimmer Sheetz.
  3. Die cut Good Luck ten times, coordinating colors with ovals and Shimmer Sheetz.
  4. Emboss and lightly sand each piece of Shimmer Sheetz. Wipe with damp paper towel.
  5. Using the photos as a reference, layer and adhere pieces onto ten patterned top-fold card bases measuring 4.25” high by 5.25” wide (.25” narrower than a standard A2 size). Use three pieces of narrow Washi tape to secure the Good Luck die cuts! Optional: Back the cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhersive Sheet before die cutting Good Luck; skip the Washi tape.

TIP: Use the same By-the-Batch strategy to make birthday, anniversary, get well, or sympathy cards. Vary embossing folders to suit the occasion(s).

Hope you enjoyed my tutorial!

Planting Happy Thoughts With The Fuchsia!

April 13, 2019

Good morning –– Kathy here from the ECraft Design Team! Today I’d like to showcase another of Susan’s releases –– the Fuchsia. I created this on a 6”x 6” card with a 51/2”x 51/2” top layer, with a thin gold foil border behind it.

The Fuchsia is a very interesting and beautiful hanging flower, coming in bold colors, or all soft shades. 

They are planted in the Garden Notes ‘Potted’, using Seth Apter’s Chunky Rust embossing powder. (I cut the pot down a bit to better fit on this card). They’re hanging over a window, the Garden Patch. 

I knotted 3 pieces of twine and put them through 3 small holes I punched in the pot and secured them behind the 1st layer to make a ‘hanging’ pot. 

The words are from the stamp set ‘Little Words Mean A Lot.’

Don’t forget the Ladybug!

I know you’ll love to add these lovely flowers to your collection! Susan gives wonderful tutorials on Susan’s Garden Club Facebook Page on how to sculpt her flowers –– check her out!

Beautiful Prairie Roses As A Thank You

April 9, 2019

Hi! Diane here with a “Thank You” card made with Prairie Roses and the Heart Grapevine Wreath.

There’s so many wonderful persons in my life that I want to thank –– let me start with our wonderful designer who creates the most incredible flowers for us to enjoy, Susan Tierney Cockburn. I’m in love with the Prairie Roses and I hope you will too after seeing how easy they are to make.

Step 1: Card base

  • For this card, you will need a 12 X 6 piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock 90 lbs , folded in half, to make a 6 X 6 card.
  • You will need a 5 3/4 inches square cut out of some purple cardstock, a 5 1/2 square cut out of yellow cardstock and a 5 1/4 square cut out of a pattern purple cardstock.
  • Using some Clear Double-Sided Adhesive Tape, adhere each layer on top of the other.

Step 2: Heart Grapevine Wreath

  • Using the #1648 Garden Notes – Heart Grapevine Wreath, die cut the wreath twice in brown 80 lbs cardstock.
  • Using the tweezers in the 4 Pces All Metal Tool Set, shape the wreaths to give them dimension.
  • With the Beacon Kid’s Choice Glue, adhere the wreaths onto the card base, the first one on the wrong side and the second one on the right side.

Step 3: Prairie Roses

  • Using the die set #1643 – Garden Notes Prairie Roses, die cut every pieces of the flower 5 times in White Soft Finish Cardstock 90 lbs.
  • Susan Tierney Cockburn has a complete video where she explains and demonstrate every steps to make the prairie rose. You can watch it here.
  • Color the flowers petals using ink markers, here were used some different shades of purple and light pink.
  • Using the loop tool in the 4 Pces All Metal Tool Set , shape the petals and with the small ball stylus, cup up the petals.
  • Color the centers with a very light shade of green ink marker.
  • Cut off the filament of all the center pieces in half using the Fine Pointed Scissors.
  • Dip all center parts into the Kids Choice Glue and than in the Yellow Pollen.
  • With the small ball stylus, cup up the wheel shape parts.
  • Using the tweezers from the 4 Pces All Metal Tool Set roll up the center pieces.
  • Die cut 8 to 10 leaves out of green 80 lbs cardstock.
  • Using the leaf tool from the 4 Pces All Metal Tool Set, draw a vein in the middle of each leaf, fold on the vein and apply some Yellow Pan Pastel with a make-up applicator.
  • With the right side up, draw some more vein on each side of the main vein.
  • With a darker shade of green and a dauber, shade the edges of each leaves.
  • Using the medium ball stylus, shape the edges on the back of each leave, holding it on the Molding Pad with the tweezers.

Step 4: Baby’s Breath

  • Out of dark green cardstock, die cut one branch.
  • Out of White Soft Finish Cardstock 90 lbs, die cut a plate of the little centers.
  • Using the Beacon Kid’s Choice Glue, adhere the little centers on to the branches after cupping them with a toothpick on an eraser or on a carving block.

Step 5: Sentiments

  • Using the die set # 1466 Words 2 – Thinking of You, die cut the word Thanks out of yellow cardstock.

Final step:

  • Using the Beacon Kid’s Choice Glue, adhere the Baby’s Breath on the wreath.
  • Glue the flowers starting with the three petals parts first and off setting the two petals parts. Glue the little wheel pieces (2) next and finish up with the center piece, on each petals set.
  • Glue the leaves around the flowers.
  • Finally, glue the word “Thanks” in the heart.
