Hi and Happy Halloween to Everyone! It’s Karen here. There are some amazing NEW holiday stamps and coordinating dies in the Elizabeth Craft Designs store designed by Krista! So cute. I decided to pull out one of my favorite dies, the Winter Sweater from Joset Designs, and dress it up with the new stamps.
Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today with an early start on holiday cards. Recently Susan Tierney-Cockburn had a video on her Susan’s Garden Club Facebook page showing how to assemble her Poinsettias using the Garden Notes Poinsettia die set. You can view this video for instructions on how to create this beautiful flower here.
I’m sure there are special people on your list who would love to receive a keepsake card such as this one. Because of the dimension, it can be protected when mailed in one of the Clear Acrylic Boxes available from Elizabeth Craft Designs. It can also be delivered in person, attached to the top of a box or the front of a gift bag, or placed inside the box or bag along with the gift.
Hi Everyone! Marilyn here with a card I made using the Stitched Hexagon, Trio of Leaves and Words 2 die sets. You could use any sentiment for this card so it is versatile and would work for many different occasions. Please forgive the glare in some of the photos – I recently purchased a glass mat and didn’t realize how badly the light reflected until I was watermarking the photos.
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here today. I have a Clean and Simple card to share with you using the new Fitted and Stitched Hexagons dies along with the classic Small Butterfly die. Below you will find the steps to replicate this card.
