Clean and simple, masculine, lighthouse card – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I´m again sharing another card project over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog. I wanted to create a masculine card for a change and the Lighthouse die cut die seemed perfect for this purpose.

There is again a full written step-by-step tutorial over at Elizabeth Craft Designs blog, so hop over there for more information. Also, they always love to get feedback, so while there, do leave a comment or two.

Like on my previous posts, there is a start-to-finish video also for this card. Hope you enjoy it!

See you next month with another Elizabeth Craft Designs project. Until then, happy crafting and take card and stay healthy!

Happy birthday card

Hello everyone and happy Saturday! Today´s share is a birthday card, created using mainly Elizabeth Craft Designs products as well as some very old flower paper from my older stash.

I am still stash busting, as you can see :). And here is the finished card:

I first cut the blue patterned paper (by Elizabeth Craft Designs) in size and then I attached some Clear Double Sided Adhesive onto the green patterned paper (from my own old stash of papers) and die cut the Bubbles. After die cutting, I adhered them onto the blue paper and cut any residue off.

Then I die cut the „leaves“ with the Budding Florals die from an old Basic Grey paper (again from my very old paper stash) and after fussy cutting the other leaves and roses, arranged everything onto the card and adhered them on place. A birthday sentiment to finish the card off and everything was done. I really like the look of this card. The flowers work really well with the bubble pattern. And I love the turquoise paper so much.

Here´s to a lovely weekend! Hope you are all doing fine!!

You are the Best

Hello, and happy Friday! Today I´m sharing another card with you. This one is again created using mainly Elizabeth Craft Designs products. I managed to make a pile of cards the other day and it felt really good. So I think I´m back :).

When I made the bold and colorful card (see my previous post!) and I used the Spring Fling stamp set, it inspired me to create a DIY stamped patterned paper (like on the card above). I love how the fragile flowers look like on the background.

I then just die cut the oval into the middle and added the die cut flower pieces and a stamped sentiment. A little bit of Silk Microfine Glitter on the flowers adds a nice sparkle and a few enamel dots finish the card off.

And it´s all in brown tones. I haven´t used brown in a while, so it was about time. Wishing you a fabulous weekend!

You´re the Best

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I´m stopping by to share another card I created the other day. I am slowly feeling my mojo again and I´m so happy about that. Maybe I just needed a break and a short holiday from everything?

For this card I used mainly Elizabeth Craft Designs products. And I really like how bold and colorful the stenciled background looks like.

I started with these above colours. Blending them onto a piece of white cardstock with an ink blending tool.

For the second layer I tried to pick slightly darker colours and applied them thru the Make Your Mark stencil.

The middle piece is die cut with the Fitted Ovals dies and I´ve inked it the same way like the blended background. I´ve then matted everything on dark cardstock and adhered onto a card base. For finishing touches I added the stamping and used various Elizabeth Craft Designs stamp for the purpose (see products on the supply list).

I´ll leave you with this happy and colorful card today. Come back for the weekend to see a few more card posts as well as my vacation story :).

Beautiful moments card set

Hello everyone and happy Monday! I have not been feeling my mojo lately, thus the absence/pause here on my blog. Also, I had been on holiday. No, we didn´t travel far, but stayed in the country and tried to plan our few days stay-away-from-home-but-stay-safe type of vacation as safe as we could. I´ll be sharing a photo-heavy post about that some time this week. Be sure to come and read it, it´s something very special, at least if you ask me :).

But now to today´s project share:

It´s a mixed media style card set of two cards. I created the banner pieces following one of Tim Holtz´s tutorials/lives on Facebook a while back. And ever since I have been looking for a perfect spot for these banners. Finally I realised they´d make for great cards!

For both cards I applied texture paste thru a stencil (my own line at STAMPlorations) and then colored the paste parts with Distress Crayons. After that I added some stamping with Elizabeth Craft Designs stamps.

I will be sharing more card projects on my blog throughout this week (plus our special travel story), so do stop by later this week to see what I´ve been upto.

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
