Father´s Day cards

Hello and happy Monday! Are you familiar with the Planner Essentials series at Elizabeth Craft Designs? No? Well, I think you should take a look at it. They have a great selection of dies that are perfect for planner keeping, but can be also used for something else too. Like cards, for example :)!

I have been avoiding this line on purpose for a while, not because I don´t like it, BUT because I knew it would lead to another addiction. And that, in a long run, is bad for my wallet :). But here we are… I gave in.

The new art journal and planner essentials series work so well together that I just could not resist. I now have a few and I´m afraid it will not end there. Oh dear! Anyhow, I tried them on cards and they are perfect for cardmaking too. Here is another result:

On the first card I used both the Art Journal line stencils as well as Planner Essentials dies (see the supply list at the end for details) on a card. It turned out very masculine due to the papers, so I made Father´s Day cards.

For the second one I used only the die cut dies with patterned paper and stamped sentiment. The wood veneer pieces are from my older stash and fit the masculine theme and feel very well. So I added those too.

I have another idea swirling in my head, but it´s a bit more time consuming to make, so you will have to wait a while for that share. Hope you enjoyed today share. Stay tuned for a few artist trading cards later this week :).

Some of the products (like the wood veneer) are quite old, so I could not find them to add into the supply list, so I tried to find similar/suitable alternatives for you :).

Card set and ATC

Hello everyone and happy Sunday! I recently received some happy mail from Elizabeth Craft Designs and could not wait to play with the new products. So here is the first set from that play session:

I adore the Budding Florals die set and created a few clean and simple cards with it. These cards are so easy to make:

Just pick a piece of patterned paper or cardstock you like, cut into size and then place the die cut die onto the right edge of the paper, run thru the die cutting machine and remove the die cut itself. Save that for later.

Next take a second (into size cut) piece of paper and repeat the first step. Now adhere the background piece on place. Then swap the die cut pieces with each other and adhere onto the empty area. Decorate with sequins and a stamped sentiment. Done!

For the ATC I simply used the leftover patterned paper piece and die cut one golden pattern on top, adhered it on place and then put some yellow twine around the center. A button (DIY with resin and a mold) decorates the center and a stemped sentiment finishes the artist trading card off. That´s it!

I hope you enjoyed this little card share! Be sure to stop by next week for a few more shares, created with the new ECD product!

Happy crafting,

Best day card

Hello everyone and happy Saturday! Today I´m sharing the last card of the mixed media die cut card series that was inspired by a Tim Holtz FB live.

For this card I used two circles from a bigger sheet of paper. Here is again the first layer of that particular piece of paper:

I really like how this card turned out. I´ve again used words that my dear friend Lizzy created for me.

Other than that I´ve used same techniques as on all the previous cards. For decor I used only Nuvo Vintage Drops.

I really enjoyed creating these cards!! Hope I could inspire you with my cards :).

Happy crafting,

Happy card

Hello and happy Friday! I´m sharing another quick card today with you that resulted from a Tim Holtz FB live in combination with some leftover pieces from previously shared (here) ATCs.

I used the ATC leftover strips on this card (the die cut circles) and inked the background with a Distress Stain in yellow. Then I added some ink splatters in green und golden Distress Stain splatters. The flowers are from my old stash and the sentiment was created for me by a dear friend – thanks Lizzy!

I really like using these circles and having so much fun creating these circle cards :). I hope I could inspire you to create crazy backgrounds and cut them into smaller pieces to use them on various projects!

Happy crafting,
