October Elizabeth Craft Designs DT challenge- Tags

Hello Crafty Friends!
It's the end of the month and that means it's time for the Design Team Challenge from Elizabeth Craft Designs. This months theme is Tags- in celebration of the release of our 3 new tag dies.

I created two projects - a Fall Tag and a Birthday Tag card. Here they are together.

The Fall Tag

This Tag was created using Tags 3 die. I diecut the tag from pattern paper and inked it with brown ink and then diecut the decorator piece at the top. I added two decorative corners at the bottom in green and filled in some of the leaf holes on the top with the opposite side of the pattern paper for interest. I added the negative of a set of pumpkins from the Pumpkins Peel-Off in Gold using a Transfer Sheet. I diecut Thank You from the same pattern paper and added it on a green mat that was also inked with brown ink. A green ribbon through the top and your tag is complete. I think it would go perfect attached to a loaf of pumpkin bread or a pumpkin pie!

Birthday Tag Card

This tag card was created using Tag 2 die. I folded an A2 size piece of blue cardstock in half and diecut the top shape, making sure to leave the die hanging off slightly from the folded edge. Once diecut trim the excess from the edge and you have a tag shaped card. Again I used the decorator piece to diecut the front of the card only and then embossed the front with the Lots of Pops embossing folder.  I glittered and colored one of the cakes and 3 candles from the Funky Cakes Peel-Off and colored it with Copic Markers. I diecut the Happy Birthday from the new Karen Burniston Happy Birthday Pop Up die and added it to the front. A bit of ribbon, some black glitter dots and a few embellishments complete the card. These are so easy to make and can be altered for any occasion. Give it a try!

Happy Birthday Pop Up

Just a quick post to share a card I made using Karen Burniston's new Happy Birthday Pop Up die. I love this die! It's easy to use and has a big Wow! factor when you open it up. It also comes with a great big Happy Birthday sentiment die that fits on the pop up but can also be used by itself- and some cute stars too!

I kept the front simple- a bit of pattern paper, a bow and a few stamped balloons colored with Clear Wink of Stella for some sparkle.

The die does all the work for you on the inside. Just add the decorator dies and you have a bright and cheery  Happy Birthday Pop Up sure to bring a big smile!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Fun!

Howdy Y'all!
There is beginning to be a slight coolness in the air here in Texas, a few leaves are dropping and the stores are full of candy- must mean Halloween is around the corner! Today I'd like to share two cards we made in my DistINKtive cards class last week at Scrapp'n Savvy. They were lots of fun to make!

The first card is a Tag Card inspired by Raquel Mason's card found here on the ECD Blog. I absolutely loved the idea of the tag card and wanted to use it in class. My version is very similar-imitation is the highest form of flattery, right! :-) I had a lot of fun coloring on the glittered Peel-Off and trying to get some distinct shading. I love how the hat turned out! This witchy is so fun to color!

Inside I made use of all the adorable little accessory images and stars on the Peel-Off sheet.. there is so much to play with!

The second card uses Karen Burniston's new Honey the Bear die. He's so cute and you can do so much with him! I used more of the stars and a candy corn from the Halloween in Frames Peel-Off. I even found a pair of stars that made perfect glasses for Honey's costume. The hat is from the Snowman die and the grass is from Outdoor Edges Die.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a great week and try making your version of one of these fun cards!

Owl's it going?

Hi Everyone!
Just a short post today to share one of the cards we made in my Copic Cards class at Scrapp'n Savvy. I found this delightful owl image free on the web and thought it would be lots of fun to color. It was a great image to practice flicking- the most important technique for coloring with Copic Markers.

Copic Marker Colors used: Y23, Y26, W3, E31, E23, E25, E27, YG06, YG07, YG09, B00, B02

Ruby Rock-It is offering our beautiful Essence Empire Bebe collection to one lucky winner!

And the Elizabeth Craft Designs prize is a package full of fun Peel-Offs from their new collection, Stand Up Helpers Set 2 and a pack of Watercolor paper.

Hello and Welcome to the Blog Hop. I'm so excited to share the cards I created with the wonderful Ruby Rock-It papers and embellishments and the Elizabeth Craft Designs Products! 

For my first card, I decided to use the Lorna Label Pop Up Die to make a fun Happy Birthday Card. The Ruby Rock-It glittered embellishment diecuts needed lots of space to shine and the Loran Label Pop Up is the perfect base to do that. 

Here is the front of the card.

Here is the inside where the party begins!

To make this card, cut a standard A2 size, 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, cardbase from red cardstock. Fold in half. Diecut the Lorna Label from the Meadow pattern paper from the Ruby Rock-It Handi Scandi Paper line. The trees are so cute!! Pop out the pop ups, trim a to fit inside the card base and adhere, making sure not to get adhesive on the actual pop up elements. Die cut a large Lorna Decorator Label in red and a small one in yellow cardstock. Adhere the Happy Birthday Peel-Off to the small yellow label. Adhere both to the pop up label with the yellow one on pop dots.  Add various diecuts to decorate. Diecut the Birthday Hat in yellow, blue and red from the new Props 2 die .Adhere to the bears head. Cut a piece of yellow cardstock to 5 1/4 by 2. Tie blue and white twine around it with a bow in the front. Adhere to bottom of inside card on pop dots. Add mushrooms. Decorate the card front with a 5 1/4 x 2 piece of Meadow pattern paper with a piece of yellow, red and blue twine tied in a bow on the front. Add on pop dots. Add mushrooms and bird to finish off.

Here is a close up of the pop-ups

My Second card is also a Birthday Card using the Ruby Rock-It Floriade Pattern Paper from the Handi Scandi Line. I love the blue floral print so much I had to make a card out of it. I used the  Accordion Oval Card Die to frame and highlight the embellishments.

To make this card emboss the front of a standard A2 size card made from white cardstock with the Lots of Dots Embossing Folder from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I love this folder and use it a lot! Diecut one Accordion Oval Card panel from the pattern paper and trimmed out the center and cut off the tabs from the oval and the panel.  Tie a length of red and white twine around the right side of the oval frame with a bow in the front and then adhere the frame on pop dots to the card front. Adhere the pattern oval directly to the center of the card and add a smaller oval in red on pop dots. Add the adorable glittered Owl and Flowers to the center for the focal point. To complete the card  diecut Happy Birthday in white cardstock and adhered it above the oval following the curve.
