Shimmer Sheetz Ornaments

Hello everyone,

Today we’d like to show you our first project for November’s Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Designer Challenge, which was created by Judi Kauffman. You can find more projects on our blog tomorrow so stay tuned!


By Judi Kauffman

As soon as I heard that the November Designers’ Challenge was ‘Gold, Silver, and White’ I decided to make some quick and easy Shimmer Sheetz ornaments. I’ve been making flat ornaments to tuck into my holiday cards for many years and the dies in the new Ornament Set 4 from Els van de Burgt Studio were just right for this quick and simple project. (My mantra has always been ‘Easy Isn’t Cheating’!)

I chose White Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz for the ornaments, Gold for the caps. I mixed in embossing folders for texture, Glitter Snowflakes and Glitter Flowers peel-offs for a pop of silver sparkle, and three different gold peel-offs just for the fun of it.


Shimmer Sheetz ornaments are super light; no extra postage is needed for mailing. Add a fine cord, 1/8” ribbon, or an ornament hanger and they’re good to go.

Remember, you don’t have to stick to the Challenge color scheme. Switch the palette in whatever way you want. Add more sparkle with Glitter Dots peel-offs or adhesive-backed gems or half-pearls, or simply add the ornament cap and create simple stylish unadorned ornaments. The Ornament Set 4 die set includes decorative overlays as well as the simple silhouette I chose for my projects; the possibilities are truly endless. It’s all up to you!


Let’s Get Started:

  1. Decide how many ornaments you want to make. This number determines the size of the pieces of Shimmer Sheetz will be needed. After figuring out how much is needed, layer two pieces of White Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet in between. (I die cut all eight ornaments from just two 3” x 6” pieces.)
  1. Using the silhouette ornament shape, die cut ornaments. Reminder: If you are new to die cutting Shimmer Sheetz, review Els van de Burgt’s YouTube video that outlines the technique. A Metal Adaptor Plate is required.
  1. Die cut a Gold Metallic Shimmer Sheetz ornament cap for each ornament, backing ONLY the bottom 3/8” of the piece of Shimmer Sheetz with Clear Double Sided Adhesive (6mm tape) prior to cutting. A small piece measuring about 5/8” x 5/8” is needed per cap. See photo below:


  1. Cut off the small oval at the top of each White Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz Ornament as shown in the photo below before adding the gold cap to the ornament. But do not add the cap to embossed ornaments until AFTER they are embossed.



  1. The photo below shows two embossed ornaments. Position the ornament inside the folder so that the cap area sticks out of the folder and does not get embossed. Optional – Lightly sand the Shimmer Sheetz to tone down the shine a bit. Add the gold cap after embossing or embossing and sanding.


  1. The photo below shows two ornaments featuring Glitter Snowflakes peel-offs. Using non-stick scissors trim excess peel-offs at the edges of the ornament as needed.


  1. The photo below shows two ornaments made with Ribbon Fantasy peel-offs, both the lace-looking strips and the leftovers from between them. Trim peel-offs at edges per step 6.


  1. The photo below shows one ornament made with Borders Leaves peel-offs, arranged diagonally in three rows, and another made with evenly spaced Lines Dots peel-offs and Transparent Glitter Flowers peel-offs. Trim peel-offs at edges per step 6.


More Options:

Decorate both sides of the ornament instead of just the front.

Die cut letters to make monogrammed ornaments.

Die cut numbers to commemorate the year the ornaments were made.

Make ornament-shaped gift tags. Instead of Shimmer Sheetz on both sides, use cardstock so you can write on the back.

Make cards with removable ornaments on the front! Die cut a pine sprig, berry branch or holly leaves and ‘hang’ one or more ornaments just below the greenery.

Happy Christmas Rudy

Hi its Caz here with another card from Karen Burniston’s amazing Pop it Ups range.  With so many dies to choose from and me not even starting my Christmas cards yet I thought I would get started with a Christmas card.  With so many fun dies across the various sets you can enjoy making your own little scene.

Happy Christmas Rudy

Here on the front you can see I have used the Evergreen Pivot Card and Rudy the Reindeer and some presents from the Evergreen Pivot set and the Outdoor Edges too.  To create the glittered outdoor edges I used the wide Elizabeth Crafts tape on the cardstock before I die cut, removed the tape and sprinkled Elizabeth Crafts Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter over the adhesive, polishing in well with my fingers.


saturday challenge card 271115

The inside showcases the gorgeous trees from the Evergreen Pivot Card die and I have mixed words from the Happy Birthday Pop Up die and the Merry Christmas Pop Up Die.  For added decoration I added the scrolls and hearts from the Merry Christmas set.  There are so many great decorator dies included in these sets that you’ll find yourself mixing and matching once you own them.

I made an inside cover of the dark blue paper before I cut the trees, I taped in place when cutting with temporary tape, cut and then stuck the blue down inside of the card, before this I snipped the trees out of the blue paper I left the trees white.  I die cut all the trees I needed from green card and run  through after cutting with embossing mat so it picked the embossed detail.  To highlight the embossed details I used a sponge dauber with a white ink pad.

All of the trees were decorated with the Elizabeth Crafts Glitter Dots.

A Way With Words Christmas Frame

Hi Everyone it’s Teresa, and I am so happy to be here today to share one of the “A Way with Words” dies for a Christmas frame that I made for the holidays.  I love to decorate, and one of my favorite rooms is filled with snowflakes, so this will be a wonderful addition to what I already have!

Believe Santa Box- Teresa Horner

This is how I created the frame:


  1. Start with a shadow box frame that is 9×9 inches.
  1. Cut a piece of the background paper that measures 8×8 inches to fit the back.  Cut a piece of the snowflake printed paper that is 6 1/2 inches by 6 1/2 inches and distress the outside.  Cut another piece of blue snowflake paper that is 6×6 and distress the outside of it too.  Glue on the brown background as shown.
  1. Cut an ivory tag is 2 1/2 x 5 inches and cut the corners.  Cut out the Santa picture, stamp and the postcard.  Ink and distress them and glue as shown.  Glue on the lazer die to the bottom right.
  1. Cut out the Believe die in the adhesive sheet with white cardstock and peel off the top side.  Add fire opal glitter to cover the sentiment.  Cut out another white believe sentiment and attach under the bottom.  Attach to the inside with 3D Foam dots.
  1. Add ribbon, crystals and flowers to decorate and carefully put inside and attach the back… Enjoy!

Christmas Tag

Hello, it’s Angela and today I want to share with you a project that my girlfriends & I created this past weekend. We wanted to create a fun & different way to give a gift cards for the holidays so we decided to make a Christmas themed tag. Here’s how we created it.
1. Die cut the tag & overlay from 11” x 4.25” olive cardstock.
2. Die cut the Stand Up Helper Tree die at the bottom of the tag & decorate with Red Glitter Dots Peel-offs and a Gold Star Peel-off.
3. Die cut bricks from beige & red cardstock.
4. Die cut the stocking, cuff, hanging loop and nail & accessories from patterned paper and solid color cardstock.
5. Add a 4.25” x 3” piece of patterned paper behind the tag at the top.
6. Glue the beige brick grid onto the tag and glue the red bricks into the open spaces.
7. Poke a hole in the bricks and glue the “nail” in place so it looks like it is coming out of the hole.
8. Assemble and glue the layers of the stocking. Add Red Glitter Dots to the points on the cuff. Use foam tape or pop dots to secure the stocking to the tag.
9. Add a wood grain paper  rectangle measuring 4.25” x .75” to the tag above the bricks.
10. Stamp the sentiment on beige cardstock , mat onto red & black cardstock; add to the tag just above the bricks.
11. Punch a hole at the top of the tag. Set an eyelet in the hole. Add 2 ribbons and a piece of pom pom yarn.
12. Secure the gift card with a glue dot behind the Stand Up Helper Tree at the bottom of the tag.
Invite your friends over & have a tag making party! Each person can create her own gift tag. I hope you give this project a try!

Pop it Ups Wednesday with Kelly – Lorna Label Pop Up with a Bluebird!

Hi, It’s Kelly Booth and I have a birthday card tutorial today using the Lorna Label Pop it Ups die by Karen Burniston and a great Bluebird stamp created by Petroschi Designs by Bianca.

Here’s the front of this top-fold A2 card:

Watermarked Photo 1 (2015-10-30-0747)

And the inside:

Watermarked Photo (2015-11-20-1607)

Here are the pieces required for this card:

  • 2 –  4 1/2″ by 11″ pieces of Soft Finish cardstock scored at 5 1/2″ to make top-fold cards.
  • 1 –  4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of spotted blue patterned paper or make your own by coloring the paper with Copic markers and using Copic blending fluid on a paintbrush and lightly touching the card stock to make droplets.
  • 1 –  4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of white Soft Finish cardstock
  • 4  – blue die cut “Celebrate” words backed with transparent Double Sided Adhesive (keep the negatives)
  • 1 –  white die cut “Celebrate” word backed with Transparent Double Sided Adhesive.
  • 1 –  blue large stitched Lorna Label die cut from the leftovers of the spotted blue paper.
  • 1 –  white small Lorna Label decorator die with the sentiment stamped or hand written in black.
  • 1 –  4″ x 5″ light blue cardstock


  1. Stamp the Bluebird in the center of the single panel of Soft Finish cardstock and color with markers of your choice.
  2. From the panel of blue spotted paper die cut an Oval Accordion page and snip out the center and side tab to leave just an oval frame. Adhere the frame around the stamped bird and then trim a small amount from all four sides to leave a white shadow when attached with pop dots to the front of one of the top fold cards.
  3. Remove the adhesive liner from the backs of the light blue Celebrate die cuts and begin adhering them in a stack at the bottom of the oval on the card front, placing the negative pieces into the letters for each layer. Remove the negative pieces from the white Celebrate and place it on top of the stack.
  4. Switching to the other white card, center the Lorna Label die over the fold of the card and die cut. Work the scored lines and fold according to the package instructions. Adhere the pop-up card inside the backing card, making sure to avoid the pop-up areas with adhesive and working one side at a time.
  5. From the remaining oval of spotted blue paper, die cut the large stitched Lorna label and adhere it centered on the pop-up label. Keep the scraps of spotted blue paper.
  6. Use pop dots or foam tape to adhere the small stamped Lorna Label in the center of the blue label.
  7. From the 4″ x 5″ panel of light blue cardstock die cut a Gift Card Accordion panel and snip away all of the tabs to isolate just the slotted rectangle to hold a gift card. Adhere it to the inside of the card, making sure not to use adhesive under the tabs that will hold the gift card.
  8. From the scraps of light blue cardstock and spotted blue paper, die cut 7 hearts using Poppy the Owl’s little heart. Add two hearts to the front of the card and the remaining five hearts to the bottom pop-up platform inside the card as shown in the photo.

Your card is now finished! I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and it has inspired you to give it a try. Thank you for stopping by the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog and have a wonderful day!

Awesome Happy Fun Glitter Lace Technique Embellishments

Hi there! It’s Marsha here again today!

I don’t know about you, but I always feel the need to mix in some non-seasonal crafting during these last weeks of the year.

This scrapbook page features Els’s awesome Silk Microfine Glitter and lace technique that you can apply to both seasonal and non-seasonal projects!

Marsha Valk | Elizabeth Craft Designs: Scrapbook page with Glitter Lace Technique Embellishments

Don’t know what technique I’m talking about? Watch Els demonstrate it in this video on the Elizabeth Craft Designs YouTube Channel!

Marsha Valk | Elizabeth Craft Designs: Scrapbook page with Glitter Lace Technique Embellishments

Here are the written steps to the lace technique:

Marsha Valk | Elizabeth Craft Designs: Scrapbook page with Glitter Lace Technique Embellishments
1. Take a scrap of cardstock, slightly larger than you think you’ll need for your die-cuts. Adhere Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet to one side of the scrap.

Marsha Valk | Elizabeth Craft Designs: Scrapbook page with Glitter Lace Technique Embellishments

2. Remove the backing and cover the exposed adhesive with one or more pieces of fine lace. The technique works best with finer types of lace with lots of detail.

3. Choose two different colours of Silk Microfine Glitter. Using two contrasting colours produces the best results, for instance: a dark and a light tone in the same hue or two colours on opposite sides of the colour-wheel.

Marsha Valk | Elizabeth Craft Designs: Scrapbook page with Glitter Lace Technique Embellishments

4. Cover the lace with the darker of the two glitters. Tap off the excess glitter and polish the remaining glitter into the adhesive with your fingertip for maximum sparkle.

Marsha Valk | Elizabeth Craft Designs: Scrapbook page with Glitter Lace Technique Embellishments

The Silk Microfine Glitter will change its sheen while polishing so you’ll be able to tell which parts are done and which parts still need further polishing.

Marsha Valk | Elizabeth Craft Designs: Scrapbook page with Glitter Lace Technique Embellishments

5. Remove the lace and repeat the process with the second colour of Silk Microfine Glitter.

Marsha Valk | Elizabeth Craft Designs: Scrapbook page with Glitter Lace Technique Embellishments


6. Die-cut the glittered cardstock with any die 0f choice. I picked the Jewelry Set 1-Sea Glass die set because it’s still one of my all-time favourites!

Note that I used the Sea Glass dies as they arrived in the package. I did not cut them apart. If you prefer to have eight different solid shapes, 4 large and 4 small, use die snips to snip the dies apart.

Tip: You can always reposition the smaller dies inside the larger ones even after the shapes have been cut apart, or mix and match among the shapes to create even more options!

7. Add the glittered lace embellishments to your scrapbook page or any other project that could benefit from some subtle sparkle!

The base for this page was originally a 12 x 12 patterned scrapbook paper that I monoprinted on using a Gelli Plate, acrylic paints, stamps and stencils!

Happy glittering!

Best friends Forever Owl

Hello!! It’s Wanda here and I’m very glad to be back on the Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Blog sharing another card using the fabulous A Way With Words dies!! Today I’ve combined those dies with the adorable Poppy the Owl die to make a card just perfect for a BFF.

Here’s how I created the card:

  1. Die cut the words ‘Best’ (#1050 A Way With Words – Best Wishes) and ‘Friends’ (#1052 A Way With Words – Friends) 3 times: Once from Pink and/or Light Pink Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz, once from white cardstock and once from black cardstock, all backed with Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Layer the word pieces so the Shimmer Sheetz is on top, the white cardstock is a highlight to the upper left and the black cardstock is a shadow to the lower right. Leave the release sheet covering the adhesive on the back of the bottom layer till step 4. Set aside.*Reminder: The Metal Adaptor Plate (803) is required for die cutting Shimmer Sheetz. Review Els van de Burgt’s YouTube video HERE if you are new to this technique.
  2. Cut all pieces of #910 Poppy the Owl from Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink pieces as shown and assemble Poppy. Set aside.
  3. Cut #1033 Leafy Branch from cardstock, spray with ink, set aside to dry. from cardstock, spray with ink, dry, set aside.
  4. Cut marbled background paper to 4” x 5 1/4” and ink edges. (Piece shown was from my stash, created using Dylusions Ink Sprays and the shaving cream technique. Alternatively, use purchased paper or another piece of Shimmer Sheetz from the Sampler Pack.) Attach all pieces to marbled rectangle as shown, and then to a white top-fold A2 (4.25” x 5.5”) card base. Add ‘forever’ sticker and draw a box around it with the black Pitt pen.


I hope you like this card and are inspired to make a card for your BFF.

Christmas Wishes in an Envelope


Hi there!

Its Jackeline here and today I want to share a beautiful holiday project. Christmas is around the corner and we all have special people who deserve to be reminded how much we love them. What it is more joyful than a handmade card filled with love? To make these cards even more special I prepared a personalized envelope for mailing and a CardStand/Easel for display.


Let’s get started.

Making the Cards:

  1. Cut black cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″. Score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half to create a side-fold card base.
  2. Cut patterned paper of your choice to 4 x 5 1/4″.
  3. If you are using the Jacky’s Dolls in Oval peel-offs, cut a piece of the same cardstock as the card base measuring  2 ¾” x 4″. If you are using the Jacky’s Dolls in Circle cut a piece measuring 3 1/4″x 3 3/4″.
  4. Apply Transparent DoubleSided Adhesive Tape to white cardstock. Transfer the outline of Jacky’s Dolls in Oval peel-off to the adhesive side and, using the glitter coloring technique, add Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to peel-off. Color with alcohol markers of choice. Watch Els demonstrate this technique HERE
  5. Finally add some border line peel-offs to the edges of the rectangles and the sentiment ‘Merry Christmas’. Match the border lines and sentiment to the color of the outline peel-off, or mix and match.

Making the Card Stand/Easel:

6.   Cut a 6 ¼”  x 5″ piece of Gold Metallic Shimmer Sheetz and  die cut the stand using the Card Stand/Easel die. For added durability, cut the first Shimmer Sheetz Easel with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape and cut a second Easel from Shimmer Sheetz or heavy cardstock. Layer/adhere the two before folding on the score line.

Making the Envelope:

7.     Cut a piece of Soft Finish Cardstock to 6 ¼” x 11″.

8.    Make 2 score lines, the first one at 3 ¾” and the second one at 8 5/8″. Fold along the score lines.

9.    Use narrow Clear Double Sided Adhesive to secure the sides of the envelope.



10.   To decorate, add Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape to Soft Finish Cardstock (230 gr) and die cut two pieces with the Flower Cluster 2 die.

11.    Place a Flower Cluster on the upper left and lower right corners of the envelope as shown below. NOTE: This envelope should be delivered in person. The fine linear elements in the Flower Clusters are too fragile to survive the postal system. Option: If you do want to mail it, enclose it in a clear outer envelope to protect it and show it off. Write the address on the Soft Finish Cardstock envelope and put the postage stamp on the upper right hand corner of the clear envelope.



Fold the easel in half as shown below and tuck it into the envelope with the card and it’s ready to be on its way! I hope you enjoy this easy and lovely idea.



Thank you!!!

3. Cut a piece of orange card that measures 4 1/2 inches x 11 1/2 inches. Score the card at 5 3/4.

  • Apply adhesive to one side of the back of the pop up designer paper piece and adhere to the inside of the orange card.
  • Apply adhesive to the other side of the pop up designer paper piece and adhere this to other side of the inside of orange card.

Christmas Gift Bags

Hello there,

It’s me, Petroschi Bianca.

I really like to create gift packaging. It is one of my favorite things in crafting. I can spend hours doing this without getting tired or bored. Because it’s the season when everyone prepares gifts for their loved ones, I want to share one of my ideas with you: Christmas gift bags made with Elizabeth Craft Designs Tags & More dies (you can use any of the sets) and some additional goodies.

The gift bags are easy and quick to make and will certainly impress the recipients! I’ve created a diagram so you can see what to do. It fits perfectly on a sheet of A4 paper. You can use any kind of paper up to 200 GSM.

Keep in mind that you can create these bags using different sizes of paper and various Tags & More dies. You can customize and personalize to suit your taste and the occasion, too.


Petroschi Bianca (2)


  1. Bend a headboard on the short end of the paper backed with the same size Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape (Use 6mm or 10mm tape)
  2. Fold the paper in half, so you overlay the other end over the double sided taped headboard, as shown in image no.1.

3. Secure the die with low-tack temporary tape in the top middle of that folded piece of paper (if you need,use a ruler to measure the side distances to be equal), and run it thru your die cut machine (shown in image no.2). Trim excess side flaps with scissors.

4. Score 2 parallel vertical lines along the bag sides to mark the ends of the die (image no. 3).

5. Score a horizontal line at 3 cm from the margin at the base of the bag, as shown in the diagram and image no. 3.

6. From this line go up 2 more cm along the sides of the flattened bag and mark a point on each side. Match this point with the other point formed by the intersection of first 2 lines and score a diagonal line.

7. Using Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape, fold and secure the bottom of the bag as shown in images no. 4, 5, and 6.

8. Now it’s time to embellish the bat with die cuts,Shimmer Sheetz,Silk Microfine Glitter,peel-offs or whatever you’d like. I used a lots of Susan’s Garden Club, Els van de Burgt Studio, Karen Burniston Pop it UpsSuzanne Cannon- A Way with Words dies as well as feathers, cord and other irresistible materials.You can also use Petroschi Designs by Bianca stamps.

You can create these packages in different colors, themes and styles. Here are two more! One is made with a Kraft brown background and Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s charming deer, the other combines one of my stamps as well as the ‘Believe’ die from Suzanne Cannon’s A Way With Words collection.
