New Release at Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello friends,

There is a cause to celebrate today.  There is a brand new release by Designer, Krista Schneider.
Krista has created some delightful stamp and coordinated die sets for the holidays.  I hope you will stop by Elizabeth Craft Designs to see them all.  I am featuring the lovely Poinsettia set here. 
I hope you enjoy.

I love the pink poinsettia so I simply stamped, colored and cut using the coordinating die for a fast yet beautiful card for the holiday season.

The sets I used are linked below so you can shop with a simple click of the mouse.

Have a wonderful and creative week,

Happy Saturday my friends, I have been in a Halloween mood lately so thought I would share a fun card with you.  This is the first time I have had a chance to use the new Frame Pull Pop-up and the new Autumn Elements from Karen Burniston.  I love fall colors so I will be using these many times.

Today I have put together a Halloween card that uses the classic colors and themes that just SCREAMS (pun intended) Halloween.  I hope you enjoy -

This die set is so easy and fun to put together, Karen is much better at explaining how to put it together than I am so you can see her assemble video by clicking here

When you pull the tab marked with the arrow, look what happens.
I used the Halloween Scene and Halloween Elements for inside as well as the pumpkin from the Autumn Elements.

For the inside of this card I used a piece from some paper in my stash.

Enjoy your weekend and don't forget to do some paper crafting,

Seeing Spots

Welcome back my friends,

Today is the Paper Pros Challenge, Seeing Spots.  We are a group of casual, just for fun, crafters that do challenge once a month when time allows.  This month I made a card for friend and have already given it to her so I'm not letting out any secrets.  Since the cupcake wrappers have spots on them, it's perfect for this challenge.

I used the Cupcake Pop-Up die from the Karen Burniston and three arms from the Upsy Daisy Pop-Up.  All the icing is cut from glitter paper and I made those cute cherries by coloring some Pearl Embellishments with a Copic Marker, any alcohol marker will work.  Everything, except the paper from my stash is linked below so you can shop with a simple click of the mouse.
My friend loved her card.

Stay Crafty,

Thinking of You

Hi Friends, 

A quick stop today to share a card I made for friends who just lost their beloved pet. 

I added a little wing on the bow.

Until next time,

Home Sweet Home

Hi my friends,

I'm beyond excited to tell you that I have been chosen to join the Karen Burniston/KB Riley Design Team and have been doing the "happy dance" since I found out.   Today is the first challenge I'm participating in and the theme is HOUSE.  I've used the House and Fence die set for my card along with a few other sets from the collection.  Everything I used is linked below so you can click to shop.  Last month I made a double floating floor Halloween card and I've used the same technique here.  You can see the technique video here

I used the same construction for the double floating floor as in the video but then I used the House as it is intended to be used.  I cut a portion of the house off to make a dog house - added a little heart on the front of each house.  The Tree Pop-Up die set is perfect for this with the cute tire swing.  Everybody wants an adorable dog in their yard so I added one using the Cat & Dog die set.  A few green clouds as bushes in the front and it is complete.

It's Good To Be HOME.
