Joset Designs Release Day - For You Card

Happy Monday! It's a new release day over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog, featuring Joset Designs new die and stamp release. You'll want to stop by my blog tomorrow as we have one more release post featuring inspiration on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.

For my project featuring some of the new Joset Designs dies, I created this pretty For You card. 


The leaves are from the Trio of Leaves die and coloured using Bundled Sage and Shabby Shutters Distress Ink. The flowers are from the Small and Large Flower Set and coloured using Abandoned Coral and Tattered Rose Distress Ink. For the "For You" sentiment, I die cut it out of the Words 2 - Thinking of You set and coloured it using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.


For the banner, I cut two banners from the Celebration Flags die using patterned paper from the Secret Garden collection. 


To finish off the edges of all the patterned paper pieces, I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Follow Your Dreams Card


Today, I'm excited to get to share with you my Follow Your Dreams Card that's on Graphic 45's blog. Although this card looks simple, there's a reason for that, I was challenged to create a project within 60 seconds. With only having 60 seconds to create a project, it makes you look at things a little differently. So, by using the Ephemera Cards from Fairie Dust, along with some patterned paper and decorative stickers, I was able to create this simple but quick card easy for anyone to recreate at home.  I hope that you'll enjoy the video tutorial of my Follow Your Dreams Card.

Tip: Use the photo corners from the Decorative stickers to add some interest in the corners of the Ephemera card.


Here's the video tutorial on how I created my card:

Becky Seddon Release Day - Let Your Dreams Soar

It's time for another new release day over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog, featuring Becky Seddon's new die releases. There will be one more of these release posts featuring inspiration using the new products throughout this month on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.

For my project, I featured some of the new Becky Seddon dies and I created this Let Your Dreams Soar Card. 


For the base of the cardfront, I layered three of the Stitched Fishtails together using patterned paper from ModaScrap's Viaggi Vintage Paper Pack.

All three Hot Air Balloons can be found in the Vintage Balloon Race die. I layered patterned paper in behind the balloons that had some cut out pieces. To layer in amongst the hot air balloons, I cut out three birds from the Free as a Bird die and blended Vintage Photo Distress Ink over each bird. The sentiment came from the Soar Collection Clear Stamp set. I stamped the sentiment in Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the backside of one of the scrap patterned paper pieces. You'll need to fussy cut the sentiment out. 


I placed the last bird in amongst the three hot air balloons. In the top portion of the card, I wrapped some twine three times around the top of the card and tied a knot at the top right hand corner. 


To finish off the edges of all the pieces, I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

ModaScrap Release Day - Mr & Mrs Card

Happy Tuesday! It's a new release day over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog, featuring ModaScrap's new die and stamp release. You'll notice a few of these release posts featuring inspiration using the new products throughout this month on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.

For my project featuring some of the new ModaScrap dies, I created this pretty Mr & Mrs card. 


To create the rose design in the pink patterned paper, I used the Rose Bouquet die. Because the rose bouquet die is so pretty once it is cut out, I wanted to keep the rest of the card quite simple. For the circle I used the Dashing Circles die and for the hearts I used the True Love die. To get the Mr & Mrs sentiment, I stamped it onto the back side of a patterned paper piece. 

To finish off the edges of all the pieces, I used Black Soot Distress Ink.

Season of Joy Altered Frame

 Happy Tuesday! 
I'm up on Graphic 45's blog today sharing with you my Season of Joy Altered Frame which features the Season's Collection. I have a few photos to share with you on my blog, but if you haven't stopped by Graphic 45's blog yet, make sure you do so that you can check out the rest of the photos of my Season of Joy Altered Frame as well as a tutorial so that you can recreate it at home.


I love creating Christmas home decor and I while I was out at on of our local vintage shops, I found this perfect frame. To alter the frame, I used the new Seasons collection and ended up creating this beautiful Christmas altered frame. This home decor piece is perfect to display in your own home or give as a gift to a friend or loved one.


Tip: Cut elements from the Ephemera Cards and layer them in amongst fussy cut images from the patterned paper.


Tip: Layer lots of different flowers together to add dimension in the top right hand corner.
