Elizabeth Craft Designs October Designer Challenge – Tags & More

Hello everyone,

I hope by now you have seen the three wonderful new Elizabeth Craft Designs Tags & More die sets. Our design team and guest designers have already posted some amazing projects on our blog using these new dies. But we though you might like to see some more and that is why we decided on the theme Tags & More for this month’s Designer Challenge.

Because it is Halloween today, I would like to start with this lovely Halloween Tag card created by Mary Prasad. Mary used the basic (main) tag shape die from Tags & More Set 2 – Deco and the Lots of Pops to create her tag card. The first picture shows the tag card open, the second shows it closed. The two leaves are holding the card closed! What a great idea! Visit Mary’s blog for more info.

From Halloween we jump to Christmas with these two beautiful projects Kelly Booth created using Tags & More Set 1 – Lace. For the first tag Kelly created a band to hold folded money, a gift certificate or letter. The background is created using Silk Microfine Glitter and the Snowflake and Outdoor Edges dies. Kelly’s second project is a fun treat bag for candy decorated with the Christmas Ornament Round Peel-offs in Gold. See instructions and full supply list at Kelly’s blog.

Raquel Mason made two Christmas tags featuring Dutch the Fox and Honey the Bear, two of the character dies by Karen Burniston. Love how Dutch turned into a reindeer and Honey into Santa. Raquel used the main tag shape die from Tags & More Set 3 – Leaves to create the tags.

The tag dies are so versatile, they can be used on flat cards like Frances Byrne did on her first project below. She also used the Season’s Greeting Stand Up Helper and the Five Part Pine. Love the color combination Red and Pink for a Christmas card. For her second project she created a tag card featuring the Cardinal Peel-off in Black. Check out Frances’ blog for more info.

The next two projects are from Debra Hensley who created a tag and a tag card. The Happy Birthday tag card opens from the side and has space inside to write a note. Debra used the Funky Cakes Peel-offs in Black and the Happy Birthday accessory die from the Happy Birthday Pop Up to decorate the front. Her second project is a beautiful fall Thank You tag. Make sure to visit Debra’s blog if you would like to know how to create the tag card and tag.

Jackie Smith made a beautiful card and two separate tags to match the card. The tags can be added to the front. For the two separate tags she used Tags & More 1 – Lace and Tags & More 2 – Deco. She also created two extra tags for the inside of the card. Different ECD dies and peel-offs were used to decorate the card and tags. You can find more info and pictures on Jackie’s blog.

Candy Spiegel created this stunning mini album using Tags & More 1 – Lace. What a great idea! She used Dutch the Fox to decorate the front of the album and some Silver/ Gold Glitter Dots Peel-offs to accent the project. Find out how to create this lovely mini album on Candy’s blog.

The next project is from Rita Edwards who used Tags & More 1 – Lace and Tags & More 3 – Leaves to create these two beautiful lollipop bags, another great idea for using the dies. The hole in the tag secures the stick on the candy! Since you can make the tags as long as you want you can score at different lengths to create both short and tall lollipop holders. Love the coloring of the pumpkins.

Karen Aicken’s first project is a gift card pocket tag tied to the handle of a gift bag. She used Tags & More 3 – Leaves and the Happy Birthday Stand Up Helper. Love the masculine colors she chose. For her second project she created a beautiful bottle hanger to hang around the neck of a beverage bottle or bottle of gourmet olive oil. Two great ideas to adapt for any occasion – Christmas, birthdays, and more. See more on Karen’s blog

The last two projects are from Kelly Booth. The first is a tag on a card featuring Tags & More 3 – Leaves and the Rose die. All elements are cut from paper Kelly created herself. It is just stunning! The second is a cute gift box for candies or a small present (lipstick, jewelry!). The front of the box is decorated with peel-offs from the Lighthouses sheet.

A Festive Ring Accordion Card!

Hi it’s Kelly Booth here. It’s time to start thinking about making some special Christmas cards for special people and I wanted to play with the fun Christmas Ornaments Round Peel-Offs by Elizabeth Craft Designs. They are so fun and work perfectly on the Ring Accordion Die set!

Here is a photo of the card I made for today’s tutorial

Watermarked Photo(80)

Watermarked Photo(81)

Preparing the ornament peel-0ffs:

1. Take a piece of white cardstock 5″ x 7″ and a piece of Elizabeth Craft Designs Double sided Adhesive the same size. Remove the backing and place adhesive onto the piece of cardstock.

2. Remove the top backing piece and place two gold ornaments and two holly leaves from the Christmas Ornaments Round Peel-Off sheet onto the adhesive.

3. Pour some Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter onto the adhesive with the peel-offs and polish glitter with your fingers. Shake off the excess glitter and return into the jar.

5. Color the ornaments and holly leaves with Alcohol markers (I used Copics for mine) and cut out staying close to the gold lines. Set these aside.

Cutting all the pieces for the card:

6. You will need 3 pieces of teal green cardstock  4″ 1/4″ x 8″ 1/2″ and three pieces of aqua cardstock 4″ 1/4″ x 8″ 1/2″. Take the Ring Accordion Die and cut 3 teal and 3 aqua panels from these.

7. Take the large circle die and the stitched circle in the set and place them in the center of two of the teal Accordion cuts taping them down with removable tape so they stay together and don’t shift and run through your die cutting machine.

DSC_9454

8. While you have these dies out take a piece of white cardstock and cut another stitched circle. Stamp sentiment in the center with gold pigment ink.

9. Take your third teal Accordion cut and cut the center circle out making sure the outer ring stays intact. Cut away the tabs from the inside and outside of this ring.

10. You should have three circles in teal, two small ones and one large one. Emboss all three circles with the Lots of Dots Embossing Folder.

11. Take some gold pigment ink and lightly rub it over the embossed dots.

DSC_9458

12. Take a piece of Gold Metallic Shimmer Sheetz 5″ x 11″ and place it onto a piece of Elizabeth Craft Designs Double sided adhesive the same size.

13. Take your Ring Frame Edges set and cut 16 Metallic Gold Edges using the pinked edge circle die. With the New Elizabeth Craft Designs adhesive these cut so easy and do not need a shim.

You should have all of these pieces cut, stamped and inked:

DSC_9463

Assembly:

14. Take your three aqua accordion panels and lay them out so the bottoms are even. Place a little piece of double sided adhesive on the outer tabs of the first two and snip off the third. Adhere the three together.

15. Take your two small dotted teal circles and place them in the center of the first panel and the last panel using pop dots or foam tape to raise them slightly.

16. Place the white sentiment circle in the center panel and place one Red Glitter Dot to the beginning and end of the sentiment.

17. Take your ornaments that have been colored and covered with Silk Microfine Glitter and place them in the center of the first and the last panel using foam tape or pop dots.

18. Flip the whole accordion over so your looking at the back and place the three open teal rings onto each panel using small pieces of double sided adhesive.

19. Flip back over to the front and peel away adhesive backing on the ring edges you cut and place them evenly around each accordion panel.

20. Place some Transparent/Gold Glitter Dots on the dots on the ornaments and place the holly leaves at the top of the two ornaments.

21. Place little pieces of double sided adhesive on the inner tabs of the Circle Accordion and attach them together. First over the ring edges and then under the edges on the second panel.

22. Now gently fold the card so all the panels are working (mountain and valley folds).

I hope this project has inspired you to start your holiday crafting with a little sparkle and some ornament-filled Ring Accordion cards!

Deer family in rolling hills

EDC_RE_10_19_14

Hello crafty friends,

This is Rita Edwards here and I would like to share my new framed project with you: Deer family in rolling hills.

While organizing my craft room I came across a frame I had long forgotten and knew instantly that today’s project would be placed in this frame.

As always, I hope you have a nice cup of coffee or tea in your hand so you can sit back and enjoy my tutorial.

This is how you can create your very own framed artwork:

1. Cut blue cardstock at 6″ wide x 6″ high, set aside.

2. Cut green cardstock at 6″ wide x 4″ high. Using the pine trees die from the Outdoor Edges die set, die cut edge. Using some scrap pieces, die cut additional pine trees, trim at the ‘trunks’, set aside

3. Using the same green cardstock, die cut the leaves with the Curvy Leaves die set. Trim each leaf off and set the individual leaves aside.

4. Cut brown cardstock at 6″ wide x 2.5″ high. Using the rolling hills die from the Outdoor Edges die set, die cut edge.

5. Using the same brown cardstock, die cut a tree with the All Seasons Tree die set.

6. Using the All Seasons Tree die set, cut clouds from blue and white cardstock.

7. Have Double Sided Adhesive, Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter, Deer Peel-off stickers in black, white cardstock and a clean non-stick craft mat ready for this step: Peel off the release sheet from the Double Sided Adhesive Sheet and adhere the adhesive side to white cardstock. Peel off the other release sheet and place it upside down on your craft mat (shiny side up). Place the peel-offs upside down on the release sheet (sticky side up) and place your white cardstock with the Double Sided Adhesive Sheet applied to it on top (This will pick up the stickers onto the adhesive.) Turn over, remove the release sheet and cover adhesive and peel-offs with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish with your finger. Brush off the excess glitter; return it to the jar for other projects.

DSCF4485_2

8. Use your Copic or other alcohol markers to color the glittered peel-offs. Fussy cut around the peel-offs. Els has a wonderful video demonstrating this technique on YouTube: Silk Microfine Glitter – Coloring with Alcohol Markers. Once blending (darker to lighter color) is complete, use a white pen to add spots to the fawn.

DSCF4492_2

9. The photo below will show you all of the pieces for our scene.

DSCF4490_2

10. Using the blue cardstock as base, adhere the green die cut aligning the bottom edges, add the additional pine trees. Also aligning the bottom edges, adhere the brown die cut next. Adhere the tree as the next layer, trim off overhanging branches.

DSCF4491_2

11. Using foam adhesive for dimension, adhere the deer family as shown in the project photo.

DSCF4496_2

12. Decorate the tree with the green leaves and Blue Glitter Flowers. Add the clouds. Using a silver glitter pen, outline the layers with ‘stitching’. Place inside frame, hang and enjoy for many years to come.

Thank you for following my tutorial. I hope you enjoyed reading it  as much as I did creating it. And most of all I hope that it will inspire you to make a framed project of your own.

Hugs, Rita

Simply Elegant Christmas Cards

ECD_Spiegel_2-1024x803

2. Cut Frosted Film (or vellum) 5 1/4 x 3 3/4. Emboss with Spring Leaves embossing folder.

3. Place Frosted Film on card base and punch two holes through both the film and front of the card.

ECD_Spiegel_1

4. Thread ribbon through the holes and tie on the front to hold the film in place.

ECD_Spiegel_3

5. Die cut Berry Branch from white cardstock and adhere to front of card.

6. Add Red Glitter Dots on a few of the berries.

7. Die cut Merry Christmas from white cardstock and adhere.

IMG_1400-1

Hi, Jackie Smith here. When I saw the new Seashells and Lighthouse Peel-Offs, I immediately thought of doing a shaker card. It’s really easy using the Ring Accordion die by Karen Burniston.

Instructions:

1. Create card base using blue cardstock. Cut 6″x 11″ rectangle; score and fold in half (left-fold card is 5.5″x 6″)

2. Cut light cream patterned paper 5 1/4″x 5 3/4″. Cut blue swirl patterned paper 5″x 5 1/2″ and adhere to cream paper using Double-sided Adhesive. Cut cream seashell patterned paper 4 3/4″x 5 1/4″ again adhere to blue swirl paper.  Cut out circle using Ring Accordion die using blue dot paper and a piece of acetate.

IMG_1381-1

3. Black Place black Seashell Peel-offs and black Lighthouses Peel-Offs  onto white cardstock with double sided adhesive on top. Cover Peel-offs with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and polish glitter with your finger. Use a brush to brush off the excess glitter. Follow Els’ step by step instructions for this technique HEREIMG_1386-1IMG_1394-1

To assemble the shaker card

4. Trim off the long side tab and cut out the center circle. Trim the acetate to fit inside the circle frame and adhere using Double-sided Adhesive. Cut waves out using Outdoor Edges using blue paper as shown. This will be adhered to the top part of the circle in the shaker card. To make the sand, mix a drop of Distress Re-inker in Frayed Burlap with some Silk Microfine Glitter in Warm Diamond. Set aside any extra for another beach theme project. Apply Double-sided Adhesive to bottom of circle, then pat down the sand. Let it dry. Add the glittered fish peel-off to the circle just above the sand as shown.
IMG_1378-1

5. Apply foam tape around the Ring Accordion edge and apply over the circle, leaving a little hole at the top to add blue beads. Add netting before apply to the card base.

6. Add Seashell, rope, crab, seagull and lighthouse as shown. Add Transparent/Gold Glitter Dots for bubbles.

IMG_1406-1

IMG_1410-1

7. Stamp sentiment onto white cardstock using Pool Pigment Ink. Cut around the sentiment with a circle die. Die cut a blue cardstock scallop edge circle. Adhere scallop edge circle to card. Top it with the sentiment using pop dots for dimension. TIP: There are circle and scallop edge circle dies in the Circle Accordion and Ring Accordion die sets by Karen Burniston – pick the sizes you like best.

Last-minute Halloween cards and tags

By Judi Kauffman

Are you ready for some last-minute Halloween cards and tags? Great! Because that’s what Judi Kauffman’s been up to. The tags will go on bags of cookies; the cards are going into the mail this very day…

That’s right, Joset. I was so excited about the Halloween in Frame Peel-offs I designed (#2585) that I just couldn’t stop making Halloween cards and tags. These last-minute projects are so easy. All you have to do is color inside the lines, cut around the peel-offs, and assemble the card fronts. Under ten minutes!

Some include nothing more than solid cardstock rectangles. Others incorporate patterned papers and some pre-printed stickers and die cuts. (Graphic 45, Karen Foster Design, K&Company) Sizes: A2 (4.25” x 5.5”), 4” square, and 3” x 6”.

The first batch of six cards, shown above and in the close-ups below, was done with the brand new (and totally amazing!) Chameleon Color Tones Pens. One pen does all of the blending – there’s a toning cartridge right in the 2-nib pen. You’ll be seeing a lot more projects from me that feature these pens, that’s for sure! They’re alcohol-based and compatible with all other brands of alcohol-based markers so I can mix the 20 colors in the Chameleon palette with other pens I already own.

Halloween-B

Halloween-D

I hope that you’ll use my projects as inspiration for your own last-minute super fast, super easy Halloween projects.

HOW TO:

1. Place peel-offs onto WorldWin Paper ColorMates Smooth & Silky 90# cardstock in White for all projects except the two tags with black background. Substitute black cardstock and use Moonlight pens (opaque ink) for that style.

2. Color with Chameleon Color Tones Pens or Letraset ProMarkers. Add doodles and details with Sakura Gelly Roll Moonlight, Gelly Roll Medium White and Pigma Micron pens.

3. Use photos for layout ideas. Complete the card fronts as shown or as you prefer.

4. To complete tags, punch an eighth-inch hole, centered a quarter-inch from the top of the Halloween in Frame. Add a loop of eighth-inch satin ribbon, 10” needed per tag.

Candle Ornament

ECDKatieOrnamentwm

Hi everyone,

It’s Frances here. My project today was inspired by the Quartet and Carousel style of cards I used to create many years ago. I originally had planned to create a card but during the creation process my card ended up being an ornament that I can hang on my tree.

I love when a die can be used for more than what it is intended. For example, the Katie Label Accordion Card die set (and the other Accordion Card Die sets) can be used to create this style of ornament/card.

ECDKatieOrnament11wm

I have decorate my ornament/card so that it has a candle on two sides. On the other two  sides between the candle panels I added the Merry Christmas and Happy New Year greetings as per the photos above.

Here is how I created my card:

ECDKatieOrnament6wm

1. Using the main die from the Katie Label Accordion Card, die cut 4 pages from Red card.

2. Use a Score Board to find the center of the page and score and fold each page in half.

3. Use the Katie Holly Frame Edge dies to die cut 16 frame edges from Green card (8 of each size). Tip: Apply Double Sided Adhesive Sheet to the back of the green card prior to die cutting to make it easier to apply to your card. Add frames around each of your 4 red pages.

4. To turn your card into an ornament, add ribbon to the back of one of the pages now. Cut an 18-inch length of ribbon, fold in half and secure to the back of the page, allowing for a loop at the top and ribbon tails hanging below the page.

ECDKatieOrnament7wm

5. Add glue to one half of your folded pages and adhere this to the back of half of one of the other pages. Continue joining your pages until they are all joined.

ECDKatieOrnament8wm

6. Die cut from white card 4 of the large labels from the Katie Label Accordion Card die set. Fold each of the labels in half lengthwise as per photo above. Add foam tape to the back of each label and adhere to the folded ornament/card.

ECDKatieOrnament9wm

7. From the Candle Die set, die cut the following: 4 pine boughs from Green card, 4 Holly leaves from Green card, 2 medium flames from Orange Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz, 2 large flames from Yellow Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz, 2 Flower Centers from Yellow Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz, 2 Flowers from Red card, 2 Candles from white card which has been covered with Double Sided Adhesive Sheet and 2 Candle Drips from white card which has been covered with Double Sided Adhesive Sheet.

8. Remove the protective backing from the candle and candle drips and cover with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Polish the glitter using your finger. Assemble candle as per photo of main card, folding the main part of the candle in half.

9. Create tabs for each of the candles by cutting card which measures 1/4 inch x 1/2 inch. Fold tabs in half and add 4 tabs to each of the candles at the top and bottom as per the photo above. Apply adhesive to each tab and use these tabs to secure the candles onto the white labels on the ornament/card.

10. Die cut Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from green card. Adhere these to the remaining labels on your ornament/card.

Fall Birthday Spiral Circle Pull Card

Hello Crafty Friends!

Debra Hensley here today. Fall has arrived bringing all kinds of beautiful colors. So much to see and celebrate: The changing rainbow of the leaves, pumpkins in many shapes and sizes, acorns for the squirrels, and as with every season an abundance of birthdays! I wanted to celebrate Fall birthdays with a colorful Spiral Circle Pull Card.

ECD Oct 24 front1a P1070109

Here is the card open

ECD Oct 24 open1a P1070116

The Spiral Circle Pull Card die does all the work for you and makes it easy to make a fun card for any occasion.

Here’s how I made this Fall themed version:

1. Cut a piece of double sided pattern paper to 7.25″ x 5.5″ and fold in half. Once die cut this will make a standard A2 size card. Align the center tabs of the die on the center fold and die cut with the Spiral die inside the circle pull die. Die cut a green circle with the decorator circle die included with the set.

ECD Oct 24  circle die 1a P1070091

2. Ink all the edges and pieces with brown ink. Adhere the green circle to the circle front of the card, making sure to adhere only around the outer edge of the spiral so the spiral can still open. Add one small glue dot to the back side of the spiral in the center, close the card and press down securely to attach the other end of the spiral to the inside of the card.

3. Adhere pumpkins and leaves from the Pumpkins Peel-Off in Gold to watercolor paper. Color using a water brush and Distress Markers. Sponge lightly with gold ink. Let dry and trim closely. Color edge with Spiced Marmalade Distress Marker to cover the cut edge and make it look more finished.

4. Trim off the leaves from the left side of the Pumpkin Peel-Off. Adhere the pumpkins on the front circle on foam adhesive. Adhere the two cut leaves behind the pumpkin, making sure the card can open easily. Adhere the other cut leaves to the spiral inside the card.

5. Using a Transfer Sheet, remove the negative part of two maple leaves from the Leaves
Peel-Off in Gold. Transfer the larger to the inner circle of the card and the smaller one on the top right inside so that it shows on the front when closed. You can view a great video by Els showing how to use the transfer sheets HERE

All White Wedding Card

Card Front

Created by Mary Dimercurio Prasad for ECD Design Team

Fall is the time for Halloween and getting ready for Christmas (it’s never too early to get a start on Christmas cards!), but it’s also high season for weddings. Being a photographer, I’m keenly aware of this. A friend and fellow gamer just got married; this is the card I made for the newlyweds.

Making the Card

1. Cut a piece of white cardstock in half so you have two pieces 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. Fold one in half for a card base.

2. Cut the leftover piece of white cardstock in half and use one to cut a piece 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 inches; emboss with Spring Leaves. Adhere to center of card front using dimensional tape. Use the other half to create the tag using Tag 1 main (basic shape) die plus the decorative overlay die. Trim to 4 1/2 inches.

3. From another piece of white cardstock, die cut one large and one small Crystal Flower Overlay and one small Crystal Flower (solid). Adhere the large overlay to the tag as shown (flat). Curl the petals of the others upward and adhere as shown (offset from each other).

4. Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to white cardstock. Die cut one small Crystal Flower center circle and the word Congratulations (trim along score line, leaving narrow band below lettering). Peel off backing and coat adhesive with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter; polish with finger. Glue circle to center of flower. Glue Congratulations near bottom of tag as shown. Adhere ribbon over bottom of Congratulations as shown, wrapping it around the back of the tag.

5. Using dimensional tape, adhere tag to front of card at a slight angle as shown.

Holiday Tags

By Judi Kauffman

Judi Kauffman’s getting a head start on the holidays. Her Season’s Greetings Tag combines Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Tags & More 1 – Lace, an oval from Karen Burniston’s Accordion Oval Card, the ECD Sprig die, and some altered Shimmer Sheetz scraps. And, of course, her beloved Glitter Dots Peel-offs! This tag would look great on a card front, a package, hanging from a garland or on the tree.

10-21-A

I had some leftover adhesive-backed alcohol ink-altered Shimmer Sheetz from the tags I made for the October 18 blog post and those scraps led me straight to this Tags & More project. (You know how it goes – one thing leads to another…)

CUT PIECES:

Red cardstock – Using the basic tag shape and the decorative overlay from Tags & More 1 – Lace die cut a 3.25” x 6” tag. (Save the flourishes and dots for another project.) Die cut a 3.5” oval (die from Accordion Oval Card).

Holiday-theme paper – Cut a 2.75” x 4” rectangle.

Green cardstock – Die cut a Sprig.

Adhesive-backed alcohol ink-altered Shimmer Sheetz – Using dies from the same Tags & More set die cut two scalloped corners and two reinforcements. One of the reinforcements goes on the front of the tag; one is used on the back as a nice finishing touch.

IMPORTANT TIP: Be sure to back the Shimmer Sheetz with Elizabeth Craft Designs’ NEW Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet. The release sheet is very thin and this is what makes it so easy to cut adhesive-backed Shimmer Sheetz shapes. And don’t forget that you will need a metal adaptor plate when die cutting Shimmer Sheetz, with or without adhesive on the back.

ASSEMBLE TAG:

Refer to the photos. Layer and adhere the pieces. Trim the sprig as shown so it fits the curve of the oval. Add 3/8” ribbon to finished tag.

Berries and accents at upper left and lower right corner are Glitter Dots in Red/Gold.
Position the Season’s Greetings Large peel-off in Gold on two lines at an angle.

10-21-C[1]OPTIONS:

Substitute a Merry Christmas peel-off; use peel-offs in Silver or Black instead of Gold.
Hand letter the greeting.
Die cut the greeting from Velvet Adhesive Sheet if you prefer less sparkle.
Die cut four decorative corners instead of just two.
Use Glitter Dots at all corners instead of just two.
For other holidays and occasions switch the color combination and the sentiment and use a Berry Branch instead of the Sprig to totally transform the tag!
