With a sad heart I must announce that Debra passed away in July 2015.  She had been ill for most of her adult life but she never showed it.

We will never forget her.

Crazy4Challenges - week 3

Hi Friends!
It's week 3 in the June Crazy4Challenges challenge month.  I was invited to play along this month by my fellow ECD DT member Frances Byrne. It's been fun to participate in the different challenges! This week is based on this card sketch.

Here is the card I created:

Recently on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog, Judy Kauffman created a project where she cut flowers from the negatives from a sheet of glitter dots adhered to shimmer sheetz. I love the look so much I wanted to try it. I had the negatives from a sheet of black and silver glitter dots (7018) and adhered it to white cardstock. I diecut the flowers with Bunch of Flowers 4 (1030) from the dots and some pink pattern paper. The silver Happy Birthday (2577) and black borders (1016) are also from ECD. The sketch worked perfectly to showcase the unique flowers.

Here is a close-up

Using the negatives doubles the use of the sheet of glitter dots and creates some really fun, unique flowers to liven up any project!

You're the Sweetest

Hi Friends!
It's been a crazy week for me. I injured a nerve on the side of my leg and consequently my foot is numb and I can hardly walk. It's going to take up to 6 weeks to heal- ugh! As a result I have not been on the computer much. I am feeling a bit better today so I went through some of my files and found this fun card from my card class last month to share with you.

Front- closed


View from above  

The card features one of the new Elizabeth Craft Designs dies - Ice Cream Cone. Of course I used Silk Microfine Glitter on the ice cream scoops and cherry for some added glitz.  The easel card uses the circle from Stand Up Helpers 2 as a stopper. These dies are  designed to use as stoppers and make easel cards so easy to make. The sentiment and papers are from my stash.

I'm going to keep this short and sweet today, just like me.. gotta go put the leg up.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!

Hi Friends,
 I was invited by the wonderfully talented Frances Byrne to participate in this month's Crazy4Challenges  group. The first challenge is to celebrate the return of sunshine in our lives and create a card with sunshine, yellow or anything else related to the sun.

The card I created features this adorable little guy heading to the beach - a digi stamp called  My Beach Boy from Tiddlyinks. He is colored with Copics. The wave edge is from Karen Burniston's Beach Edges (981) cut on Bazzill Bling cardstock. The sentiments were some old ones from my stash. I added a little clear Wink of Stella for some sparkle. 

Here are the Copic colors I used:
Skin: E00, E01, E11, E13, R20

May Design Challenge- Follow Your Heart

Hi Everyone!

Today is the day for the Elizabeth Craft Designs- Design Team Challenge for May. The theme this month was to use one of our new large stone, bricks or circles dies.

The bricks were calling to me to make them into the Yellow Brick Road which inspired me to create this card. I diecut the bricks twice from yellow bling cardstock to make it extra long. I wanted the road to get wider as it went so I used some of the bricks from the extra piece to fill in on the sides to make it wider, Worked perfectly! Next I needed the ruby slippers- I used the beautiful shoes/feet from  Jackie's Dolls 1 Peel-Offs- glittered and colored with E01 and R39 Copic. I diecut the letters for the word FOLLOW from Alphabet 1- Caps and adhered them to a strip of vellum. The word "your" is cut from an old book- I thought it would be a nice nod to the Wizard of Oz to use real book text. A glittered heart finishes it off. 

Don't forget to visit the ECD blog for links to all the other amazing Design Team projects You will be inspired!

Thanks for stopping by today! Remember to always follow your heart!

Yellow Rose of Texas

Hi Friends,
Being a Texan, the song The Yellow Rose of Texas inspired me to create this card featuring Susan's Gardens Garden Note -Rose 2 die. The sweet rose and bud were perfect to create a tag card with Texas flag colors and 2 yellow roses.

For the card, I diecut the base with Tags & More 7- Vine, embossed the front with Lots of Dots embossing folder and added the pattern paper. Next I diecut  the Tags & More 4- Flourish tag to build my roses on. You can see a video explaining how to create these Roses from Susan HERE.  A few strips of Glitter Stars Border and some ribbon and the card is complete. 

Garden Notes dies are perfect for cards and easy to put together. Give the Rose 2 a try and create your own special card!

Watercolor and Sequins!

Hi Friends,
Today I am sharing a card with you I created for my card class this month. I've been fascinated by sequins lately and finally got some to play with. This card is inspired by Kristina Werner - she plays around with inks and vellum  and sequins a lot and I always love the look.

Wartercolor Inked Sequin Card
Fold card base in half. Stamp sentiment on vellum with Versa Mark Ink. Be sure to use the embossing buddy before stamping. Set aside. Create the inked background. Dribble each color of Distress ink/mist on the top of the water color paper, varying the colors. Tilt card upright and spritz with water to make colors run. Keep adding colors and drying until the desired look is achieved. Sprinkle with inks to get droplets. Spritz with both mists for the pearlized sheen. Add a few lines of blue Wink of Stella. Dry. Adhere to card front. Adhere vellum sentiment strip about 1” from bottom. I used tiny gluedots that can be covered with sequins. Add sequins to complete.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are inspired to get out your inks and some water color paper and let your inner artist out!

Elizabeth Craft Designs April DT challenge- baby!

Hi Everyone!
It's the end of the month at that means its time for the ECD Design Team challenge. This month's theme was babies- in honor of the impending arrival of baby girl Van De Burgt ( Congrats Joset and Grandma Els!) Be sure to visit the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog to see all the design team creations - you are sure to be inspired!

I had a lovely time creating this sweet baby card. The image is from Lily of the Valley colored with Copic Markers. I wanted the background paper to resemble a baby blanket- using the Swirly Curves embossing folder created the look of quilting on the pattern paper perfectly!  I used the Congratulations Stand Up Helper to frame the colored image. The flowers are cut from Bunch of Flowers 2. I inked the flowers with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and shaped them with the loop tool on the mini molding pad. The leaves are from Curvy Leaves and are also inked. The finishing touch is the beautiful Glitter Border.

Here are some close ups:

H is for.....

Hensley of course!!

Hi Friends!

This week at Scrapp'n Savvy we hosted our quarterly Sampler.  During this time all the teachers come in talk about upcoming classes and we do a project with the customers. This time we got to make a monogram letter. The teachers were asked to each do one representing some aspect of what we teach. I knew I wanted to showcase flowers some how and thought it would be fun to use the Garden Notes- Bluebonnets from ECD. I went the "Texas" route of course and also used the 3D star from the Karen Burniston's Star Accordion die to incorporate the Lone Star. The letter was stained and then decoupaged with the bandanna paper. The silk flowers were provided. What do you think?Don't those gorgeous Bluebonnets look real?! It was fun to make and will be a great piece of home decor.

Watercolor and Acetate Card

Hi Everyone!
Here is another card we made in class this month. I came across this fun watercolor and ink technique  on Pinterest and wanted to give it a try. I love how it turned out. Elizabeth Craft Designs large Happy Birthday die was the perfect size to add to the front.


Adhere red cardstock to front of a standard A2 size card base. Make watercolor background.

Watercolor Background:
Press Distress Ink pads on acrylic block in different spots. Colors used- Abandoned Coral, Cracked Pistachio, Wild Honey, Festive Berries. Spritz well with water from a mister. Flip block over and stamp, centered onto watercolor paper. Let the block sit for a few seconds on the paper so the colors will be absorbed. Lift off block. Repeat as desired until you achieve a look you like. Dry with heat tool. Spritz with bronze mist. Dry

Stamp flower on acetate strip with Stazon Ink. Be careful not to let the stamp move on the acetate or it will smear. Set aside to dry. Adhere watercolor piece to green mat. Adhere dry acetate piece to watercolor paper about 1/8” from right side. Using mini glue dots positioned behind the thickest parts of the stamped image will secure the acetate without showing on the front. Add to watercolor piece to card front on pop dots. Diecut Happy Birthday from green cardstock. Adhere to card front over watercolor and acetate about 3/4” from bottom. Add glitter dots to corners..

Elizabeth Craft Designs February D T Challenge- Tags!

Hi Everyone!
It's the end of February and that means it's time for the Elizabeth Craft Designs February Design Team Challenge. This month's theme was to combine different tags and or the elements from the tag dies into a project. With such a variety of gorgeous tag dies to pick from this challenge was a lot of fun!


To make this card I created the base from Tags & More 7- Vine on gray cardstock. I embossed the card front with Lots of Dots embossing folder. I cut a smaller tag from Tags & More 4- Flourish and cut the decorator flourish from the pattern paper and added the negative pieces to the tag. I love how the edges on these two tags compliment each other so well. The pattern pieces are from Authentique. All pieces are inked with Vintage Photo distress ink- my favorite brown.  The flower is the smallest Victorian Flower cut from cardstock with Transparent Double Sided Tape on it and then glittered with a combo of Orange and True Red Silk Microfine Glitter. A few strips of Red/Gold Glitter Borders, ribbon and a perfectly tiny sentiment Peel-Off in black to finish it off. *Note- I love the tiny sentiments in Assorted Words Peel-Off. There is a nice variety and they are perfect for cards that need a smaller sentiment that is easy to read and apply. Pick up a sheet!

An overhead look:

Don't forget to check out the other Design Team members creations on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog. You are sure to be inspired to think outside the box with your tag dies and create some unique and beautiful projects.

Buster Birthday Card!

Hi Crafty Friends!
When I created the PURRfect valentine card featuring Whiskers the Cat for my last ECD Blogpost I knew I wanted to do a similar version featuring Buster the Dog. We made the Buster version in my DistINKtive Cards class this month at Scrapp'n Savvy and it turned out so cute!

The Rectangle Pull Card die makes this card a breeze to make! I used the new Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink to color the letters for WOOF, Buster's collar and to color the glittered heart Balloon and the dog bowl on the inside of the card. I used Shimmer Sheetz for the other two balloons and added them to the Spinner with strings anchored under the bowl full of bones. Buster is wearing a Teal colored Microfine Glittered birthday hat from Props 2 with a tiny pompom on the top- he's so cute!

Thanks for stopping by today! Try pairing up the Rectangle Pull Card, a cute Character and some accessory dies to create a fun card sure to bring a smile!
