Hello friends and welcome, it’s Sandy here with a fun project for you today. Although it is hotter than blue blazes here in Arizona I have been thinking about the holiday season. With all the great new dies from Joset’s recent release I just couldn’t stop thinking about Christmas and some cool snow flakes. If you like to incorporate photos in your cards for the holidays I have just the thing for you and would you believe it folds down flat for mailing?
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Merry Christmas Card. Christmas is only three days away and if you need a last minute Christmas card, this card is a perfect option. Using the Festive Glow Die from Becky Seddon, the Stitched Ovals Dies from Els van de Burgt Studio and some Christmas patterned paper from ModaScrap this card came together quickly. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here today from the Coloring Team. My last few posts have been showcasing all the holiday stamps and matching dies. Today I wanted to share a non-holiday card. I work in the fashion industry and I was so excited when I saw Krista Schneider’s Fashion collection. This is perfect to send to my colleagues as well as anyone who loves fashion. Below are the steps to replicate this card.
Hello Friends, Piyanki here with a new project using some brand new Susan’s Garden dies. The collection is fun , creative and as always immensely intricate to give your flowers the perfect shape and natural look. For today’s post I have chosen the Garden Notes – “Love in a Mist” (Nigella Damascena) die set. First the name fascinated me and then when I researched a little about the flower, it blooms in the color blue. For a long time I have not created any flower in blue so went for it at once.
Love in a Mist is a common name for “Nigella”. The ferny , fennel like foliage makes it look all the more interesting. With the die set you have the perfect dies for the foliage which will add the natural look once you assemble the flowers. I chose to create my flowers blue for my card, however you can find these flowers in a variety of different colors.
Hello Crafty Friends! Kathy Jo popping in today to share a sweet baby card using soft colors and the beautiful “Baby” die from Suzanne Cannon’s “Baby Love” die set. What a cute die! And the heart in the “a” is a perfect touch.

Hello My Dear Friends!
I am Pavitra here and welcome to the ECD blog. Today I have brought delicate Hydrangea for all of you from Susan’s Garden. These tiny wonders look so fabulous and nature provides them in so many beautiful colors.
I teamed the Hydrangea flowers with newly-released ModaScrap Oriental Card die to create an elegant card. When you have time, be sure to check out the new collections and other Susan’s Garden Dies here.
The finished card measures 10 x 6-1/2. Have a look!
Hello Everyone, this is Christine from Susan’s Garden Design Team and today is my turn to post on the Elizabeth Craft Design’s Blog. My project uses Susan’s Hydrangea die along with several other dies. My designer paper is a sheet that I have been saving for several years now. I can’t even remember where I bought it. Do you ever do that, buy some paper that you love and then not use it because you are afraid that you will not be able to get more? I have decided I need to use some of those papers!
