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!
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!
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Today I have a sweet card to share with you using the Honey Bear Stamp and die set from Krista Schneider. Below you will find the steps to make your own card… Just Bee-Cause. 🙂
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 vertical side fold card. (A2)
Step 2 – Stamp Honey Bear images on White Soft Finish Cardstock using Amalgam Ink. Color images using alcohol markers. Diecut images with matching dies.
Step 3 – Diecut Garden Notes – Frame It – Stitched Ovals using White Soft Finish Cardstock, then 1 die smaller using Dark Chocolate Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere the branch and bear image slightly under the Dark Chocolate Cardstock. Adhere the panels to the card front Dark Chocolate first and then White using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Adhere the bees and butterfly.
Step 4 – Stamp Bee Sentiment Clear Stamp to the card front.
This card can be used for many occasions by changing the sentiment and colors. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day. Just Bee-Cause!
Samantha here…and for today’s card/s I’m combining Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Stitched Hexagons with the stamp set Patchwork. There are many creative moments where I’ve been really stuck on colour combinations…so I just pull out a (random) piece of pattern paper from a paper pad (in this case Fly and Scrap by Modascrap), match it up with cardstock and Copic markers and start creating!
Step 1: Using a combination of pattern paper and cardstock die cut 12 small stitched hexagons.
Step 2: Piece these together, forming two rows on the bottom of your card front. (Card front measurements: 15cm x 10.5cm). Trim off the sides.
Step 3: Next, stamp the Patchwork flower and other smaller Patchwork images on Copic friendly cardstock, die-cut them out, and colour them in with Copic markers (or your preferred colouring medium).
Step 4: Stamp the sentiment with black ink using Elizabeth Craft Designs Banner Sentiments stamp and coordinating die.
Step 4: Assemble card as shown, adhering the sentiment to the (hexagon) card front with foam tape and tucking the Patchwork flowers under the banner.
Step 6: Embellish with sequins and a twine bow before adhering the card front to an A6 card base.
Below are two more fun examples of ways to create a more detailed hexagon background. At first I thought the colour scheme pick out in the first card wouldn’t work…but I’m really happy I persisted. I think the pastel colour combination really suits these Patchwork bees and that it is a great alternative to ‘normal’ bee colours!
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my card tutorial today and if you are ever stuck on a colour scheme just try my tip…you never know how interesting the card will turn out in the end!
It’s Sara here today and I would like to show you how I use the Krista circle background and birds and branches background stamps in my ECD planner!
This page is as simple as you can see: first step is to create you background with Distress Ink and water.
Then you move on to the flowers, stamping all your elements on a piece of watercolor paper with dark brown ink.
Watercolor all the images and fussy cut them all with the fine point scissors, place all your pieces on the page and trace a line with a pencil where you shold make your stitched lines to create the stems.
Sew with a sewing machine or embroidery and add the flowers and the leaves with glue or mounting tape to create that dimention you see in the pictures.
