Tropical Floral Card with Elizabeth Craft


Hi Everyone, Kristina here today with my final Elizabeth Craft Designs project for this month. This time I'm using their tropical florals die set with some fun ink blending. 


The Process

  • I started by masking off a circle an a2 sized card front. From there I blended Spiced marmalade distress ink from the bottom to the top, decreasing the intensity towards the top of the card for an ombre effect. Towards the bottom I blended some abandon coral to darken it up a bit.
  • Before removing the mask I splattered some white acrylic paint and wink of stella shimmer pen over the ink blending.
  • I dies cut my elements from Bristol Smooth white card stock and used distress oxides and the smallest life changing blender brushes to color them in.
  • I adhered everything down and then stamped my sentiment in the center of the circle.
  • To finish I added some faux stitching accents around the circle with a black copic multiliner. 


Thanks for stopping by today!

This Parrot Said Thank You

ElizabethCraftDesigns.com


A $25 Gift Card to the Winner of our 
August "HOT" challenge.

You have to love this parrot.  Any color and he's just adorable.  I wanted to use the new door die because a friend opened up her house for swimming to a small group of us who work/worked in the same offices.  I wanted to be sure we had a thank you that was fun and summery.  I think this filled the bill.

Be sure to visit me at A Bit of This and That for how I put this card together and the supply list.

DCD is Going Bananas with Elizabeth Craft Designs

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my inspiration project for the Die Cut Diva's Challenge using Elizabeth Craft Designs Monkey & Jungle Leaves dies as well as the  Safari Sayings Sentiment Stamp Set.
This little monkey is so cute, and it is his birthday (actually a card for nephew's birthday and he has always been the family monkey). The monkey will swing back and forth by his tale on the vine, or can be removed and I attached a small magnet strip on the back so he can attach it to the fridge.

I have used CAS-ual Friday stamps and die to make my card.

Forget Your Trebles Hand Made Card with CAS-ual Friday Stamps


Hi Everyone! Kristina here with my first solo post. Happy to be in such great company with the rest of the Die Cut Divas. 

My card today uses this fun die and musical stamp set from our sponsor CAS-ual Friday Stamps.



The Process

  • I started with an a2 sized card panel and stenciled on a watercolor stripe background.
  • I used the avery elle wonky stitches die to cut the panel down smaller and add the wonky stitching accent around the border
  • I adhered the finished background panel onto an a2 sized card base and added my stamped sentiment strip. 
  • From there I die cut two colors of treble clefs, and layered them together, slightly off set for a shadow effect. I used a strong liquid adhesive to adhere these down to my card front. 
  • To finish, I embellished the card with some black nuvo drops
I love that this card is both simple and quick to make, but looks very detailed and complex. To add a bonus layer of interest, I kept my ink blending heavier on one end than the other for a slight ombre effect.
