First ever Elizabeth Craft Designs Designers’ Challenge: Flowers — Hugs and Bugs with Daisies

EDHMC_ECD_3_22_14

Hello Friends,

Let’s play with some super fun Elizabeth Craft Designs flowers today! Thank you for being here for the first ever Elizabeth Craft Designs Designers’ challenge! How exciting, right?

Please remember to tell me in your comments below if you like this format of steps as I would like to hear what you think, plus now all supplies used are listed at the end for easy reference.

1. Let the fun begin with some white card stock paper! I used a Silhouette cut file so we can create our vase. Once the base is done, I decided to do some extra steps: cut my Elizabeth Craft Designs (ECD) Shimmer Sheetz to size that will cover the outside of our vase and use the ECD Swirly Curves embossing folder — just gorgeous.

2. Now it’s time to bring out our Elizabeth Craft Designs Double Sided Adhesive and my absolute favorite, Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter — I think I am actually addicted to this glitter!

3. Next I place my card stock paper down, peel off the release sheet of the double-sided adhesive and then place this over the card stock. Now we can peel of the other side’s release sheet, add the glitter, rub it into the sheet and just brush off the extra. And yes, it’s okay to sit back and admire a little, I do each and every time.

4. Using the Daisy die set, I cut 4 flower silhouettes out of the layered glittered-adhesive-card stock (try to say this 4 times!) and color them with Copic Y04, Y08 and Y17 markers —  Els van de Burgt of Elizabeth Craft Designs has a wonderful video of this technique on YouTube: Silk Microfine Glitter – Coloring with Alcohol Markers.

5. Now we can cut out 4 overlay flowers from our White Velvet Adhesive sheet using the same Daisy die set and place this die cut velvet over the silhouette flower bases.

6. The Daisy Die set also has a leaf and a flower stem, which we can cut now, 3 layers of the stem makes a really nice thick stem that can hold our flower up in the vase.

7. Since the shimmer sheetz have a gorgeous pink – lavender – white glow, I decided to tie some soft lavender ribbon around the vase. By the way: the bow was the first attempt and got it right! Something that never ever EVER happen, still cannot believe it.

8. Ever since I received my Ladybugs die set, I’ve been looking for a way to use them as, in mind, ladybugs go with daisies. So let’s cut the silhouette base from black card stock and use some Red Velvet Adhesive sheet for the layover pieces — just a sweet addition.

9. Once all the flowers are assembled, we can simply create some cross over sections on the inside of the vase that can hold the flowers apart and voilà! we now have a beautiful shimmer vase with glitter daisies. And yes, two little ladybugs!

I hope that you enjoyed this little gift and please ask me questions, I’m happy to answer!

Hugs, Rita

Upside Down and Still Thinking of You

EDHMC_ECD_Tiddly_ALL_3_22_14

Good Morning Everyone,

It’s time for another fun Elizabeth Craft Designs Design Team card! Ever since I posted my very first Elizabeth Craft Designs project, I’ve been thinking and thinking and thinking… of what exactly could I do next. Something colorful? Something fun? Or maybe something new? Or maybe combine them all!

Let’s see what exactly I’m talking about! And before I forget, please remember to tell me in your comments below if you like this format of steps, I find separating steps useful and would like to hear what you think, plus now all supplies used are listed at the end for easy quick reference.

1. Let’s start with some fun paper: Be. Loved by Fancy Pants Designs, which serves as the main frame and floor for my card. Also, we can use some Neenah Pearl card stock, which I airbrushed to serve as our sky.

2. Next I combined some sweet little digital images in Silhouette Studio: Tiddly Inks Hanging around little girl received some legs from School Girl and also added some little birds.

3. At this point we can pull out simple white card stock, double-sided-adhesive and my absolute favorite, Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter — getting exciting, right?

4. Once we peeled off the release sheet of our double-sided adhesive sheet, carefully place it over the white card stock. At this point, we can cut out the size of the paper we need, remove the other release sheet and apply our microfine glitter mentioned above — Els van de Burgt of Elizabeth Craft Designs has a wonderful video of this technique on YouTube: Silk Microfine Glitter – Coloring with Alcohol Markers.

5. Using our freshly glittered adhesive-cardstock, now we can cut out 2 poles and 10 little flags with the Lots of Pops die set. Also cut out the little heart from the Accordion Oval Card die set. They all look beautiful!

6. Using the Lots of Pops die set to create the base of our card.

7. And now my other favorite part: coloring is next! Yes, I’m addicted… So let’s color up the little upside down girl and the little birds. And here comes the beauty of Elizabeth Craft Design’s glitter: now I can use the same Copic markers on the flags that I also used on the clothing. How cool is that! No need to dig for matching paper! No need to match the cloths with paper we already found, none of that old hassle! And the colored flags are simply amazing! Daylight or by the lamp, everything is reflecting the light in the most beautiful way.

8. To decorate the front of our card, I used the Thinking of You die and one of the decorator pieces included in the Katie Label Pivot card die set to cut the label.

9. Now it’s time to assemble. Relax. Sit back and enjoy!

I hope to see your cards soon and please ask me any questions! Hugs, Rita

Fiona the Fairy and Her Ice Cream

EDHMC_MNC_Fiona_Ice_Cream_3_19_14

Hello Friends!

Yes, something new today! Ribbons and Lace Design Team showcase at Milk N Coffee, I used Fiona the Fairy and Her Ice Cream digital image and decided to make the image as the overall card itself — come over and check out the wonderful creations!

As you know, scissors and I don’t get along too well… okay, I don’t like cutting, true story! Instead, sweet little Fiona made it into my Silhouette Studio software, outlined and cut out the image by Silhouette Portrait cutter. Then I cut out 2 more outlines so one of them could go under the colored image and one can be the back page of my card.

And really, today’s card is all about the fun color combinations of rose mist and pale raspberry along with ash lavender and frost blue, just to mention a few —- don’t they sound so much better then just R83, V25, V22 or B00? If you have Copic markers, read some names, they’re equally creative and totally remind me of Urban Decay! Added some heart shaped paper fasteners and some pears too with some glitter pen touches.

Please remember that I am always happy to personalize my artwork with a name, a quote or a special message, endless options really. Also, colors are always customizable options, after all Copic Markers come in 358 different colors!

Please visit my Etsy Store and  Facebook Page for more ideas and colored images. 

I am also posting more detailed photos below, please check them out too.

hugs, Rita

Swing Little Girl, Swing!

EDHMC_MiC_Lulu_Swing_Stock_Jungle_3_16_14

What a great weekend here!

My sweet friend’s baby shower was today and, as with most baby showers, we search registries, pick out toys, outfits, oh yes, diapers too! Lots of diapers actually! But not this time! My friend asked me to create her little girl a nursery decoration instead — oh, what an honor! Since her husband is in the military, the theme was jungle with browns and greens keeping the little girl still sweet and girly. After days of considerations, I chose Make It Crafty’s Lulu Swing image and already had a royalty free stock image for the background.

As I started to work on the images a few days ago, I was invited to join Alyce’s first ever Kit and Clowder Design Team! Pinch me, because I certainly cannot believe this! Honestly, everything I know about coloring is because of Alyce, who I’ve admired, listened to, practiced with and became good friends with. Counting my blessings for sure! I hope you too can join our Kit and Clowder Group on Facebook and the Kit and Clowder Online Coloring Community where we can chat, share our work and take the classes as well.

I would also like to introduce you to my fellow DT members, please go and check out these talented ladies’ blogs as well, full of ideas, inspiration and mostly gorgeous coloring:1795838_10153879328270324_1704830943_o

And what a successful launch of this new group on Facebook, already 470+ members just in a couple of days and counting. But wait! I still had my image to finish Friday night! So back to my crafting room for a moment!

How did I create this card?

First of all, had to do a little PhotoShop magic: some bows just had to go! Then I placed Lulu on the Swing in my Silhouette Studio software, outlined and cut out the image by Silhouette Portrait cutter.

DSCF2242_2

I also placed Lulu on the Swing over my background image and printed the entire piece together. Next I colored Lulu and everything on her swing with Copic C7 on the background piece to help my 3D look even further (photo below). Then I colored Lulu on the swing and assembled the pieces placing actual rope under the swing just for a little something extra fun! Lulu is sitting on foam squares to life away from the background.

DSCF2243_2

And the end result is a signed greeting card inside a frame. I also created the baby’s name, cut out and placed onto the matting area, just not showing here for privacy reasons. I cannot wait to meet you, little baby girl! Be good to your sweet mama, daddy and big brother too!

Please remember that I am always happy to personalize my artwork with a name, a quote or a special message, endless options really. Also, colors are always customizable options, after all Copic Markers come in 358 different colors!

Little Fishes Big Thank You

Hi Friends,

Fresh on a Monday morning, sharing my very first Elizabeth Craft Designs Design Team card today. We’re making a sweet Thank You card !

You already know how much I love the ocean and what better image to use than the Fishes Peel-Off Stickers! I also chose the Accordion Oval Card die set with the Oval Dots Frame Edges and the Thank You die sets.

Once all the die cuts are made, the very first step I take is connecting the base pieces and only then start adding the frames. This way we can cover the connection points between two base pieces, just like this photo below shows. Also, to create the perfect frames for the base card, I work with all four of the frame edges at once. I first place some glue on the back of each frame piece and only press the middle of each frame onto the base cut. This way I can easily adjust the connection points of each frame segment and the result is perfectly lined up frames.

EDHMC_ECD_DT2_3_10_14

How did I create the images? I cut a 5″ x 5″ Double Sided Adhesive sheet and peeled one of the release sheets off, then placed the adhesive side over white card stock paper, which gave my adhesive a very nice solid base. Now I could peel the other release sheet off as well exposing the other adhesive side — please keep the release sheet, we’ll use it shortly — which will be the front of our image holding our sticker, glitter and later colors as well.

Let’s stay with that release sheet piece we just saved. Yes, it is the release sheet we peeled off from the double sided adhesive. Place this sheet in front of you and place the peel-off stickers you wish to use over this release sheet with their adhesive side up. Make sure the adhesive side is facing up. Now with the peel-off stickers on our release sheet, place the adhesive side of our adhesive & card stock layered paper over it so it’s the adhesive side of the peel-off sticker and the adhesive side of the double-sided adhesive sheet on white card stock meet and bound together. At this point we can lift away our sheet and now the peel-off stickers are nicely positioned over our double-sided adhesive on white card stock. Els van de Burgt of Elizabeth Craft Designs also has a wonderful video of this technique on YouTube: Silk Microfine Glitter – Coloring with Alcohol Markers

This is what our images look like at this point:

EDHMC_ECD_DT1_3_10_14

Let’s go and place the release sheet back over the images and this way we can roughly cut around each image, which gives us extra room around each image that we can hold onto as we’re getting ready to add glitter. Yes, glitter! And each glitter is actually more beautiful in person than any photo can convey.

I decided to use Soft Green Silk Microfine Glitter on the seaweed pieces. Once we add the glitter, shake off the extra and simply use your fingers to rub the surface, which will set the glitter in place, just like this image shows:

EDHMC_ECD_DT13_3_10_14

The little bubbles and the fishes received Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and each element is now cut out:

EDHMC_ECD_DT14_3_10_14

The next step is coloring over the images and I have to admit, I was absolutely amazed how easy it was to color with Copics, colors were blending instantly and the glitter stayed exactly where they were left:

EDHMC_ECD_DT12_3_10_14

And now it’s time to add our sweet elements to our card. I used foam adhesive underneath each fish so they all stand out giving a more defined 3D effect to the overall look.

I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did creating it. Happy crafting!

hugs, Rita

Take a Nap with Bunny

EDHMC_MNC_Lisbeth_Nap_ALL_3_5_14

Hello Friends!

I’m sharing my Design Team Showcase card at Milk N Coffee — come over and check out the wonderful creations! I used the sweet little Lisbeth Sleeps with her Bunny digital image — which is exactly how my little girl sleeps, her bunny’s name is Bun-Bun. I also opened up my brand new Lucy Label Pop Up die set by Elizabeth Craft Designs and Karen Burniston. What can I say? I’m in love with the Lucy Label Pop Up die set! I’ve said this many times already but will say again (and again and again) that these die sets are amazing! Everything lines up, everything cuts and looks perfect, couldn’t have asked for better! And they’re made in the USA!

How did I create this card?

I placed Lisbeth with Bunny in my Silhouette Studio software, outlined and cut out the image by my Silhouette Portrait cutter.

Next I had to pick out the paper — I don’t know about you or anyone else, but this portion of my crafting can take hours… I find paper I didn’t know I had, re-organize, stack and move and then eventually somehow the paper just appears for the new cards. However, today was different, today I went to my Be Loved collection by Fancy Pants Designs and used everything from the collection, including the tape sticker that I cut Happy Birthday from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Once everything was colored — yes, I colored after choosing the paper so I could coordinate my image nicely with the paper colors as well—  I cut my base to 6″ x 12″ and scored at 6″. The front and back accent layers were cut at 5 3/4″ x 5 3/4″. Then I cut down the inside layer at 11 3/4″ x 5 3/4″ and scored at the middle again. The score line is the exact guide for the die set and once the cuts were made (yepp, perfect cuts!), I could assemble the entire card.

Please remember that I am always happy to personalize my artwork with a name, a quote or a special message, endless options really. Also, colors are always customizable options, after all Copic Markers come in 358 different colors!

Just for You

EDHMC_SugarNellie_Little_Gossip_Dream_Wishes_3_1_14

ECD_DT_Badge

What an incredible week! I’m so happy to share that I’ve been invited to join the wonderful Elizabeth Craft Designs’ first ever Design Team!

What can I say? I’m still sitting on my pink clouds smiling rainbows! Simply honored, excited and ready to try all the fun products Elizabeth Craft Designs offers.

As you have seen my earlier cards, I’ve been in love with Karen Burniston’s new Pop It Ups die sets, which are part of Elizabeth Craft Designs’ product line. Today I would like to show you my “Just for You” cards using the Accordion Circle Card die set — love that they’re made in the USA, please support our local manufacturers!

Earlier this week, my sweet friend Lisa introduced me to Sugar Nellie’s fairies and today’s cards are using two lovely fairies: Dreams & Wishes and Little Bit of Gossip. Thank you, Lisa!

Something important to start with: I chose The Paper Studio’s Blanc Boutique card stocks in pearl finish for the sentiment and the card base, which is very important as this paper folds and bends nicely without breaking apart — not all card stocks are created equal! I also used DCWV’s The Glitzy Brights papers for cutting out the scalloped circles and the floral card base overlay — was also important for the small details to come out nicely.

As my usual routine, I imported the fairy images into Silhouette Studio, outlined and let my Silhouette cutter complete the intricate details. Once all cuts were complete, I used Copic markers to color these sweet little fairies but I didn’t stop there today, also applied glue on top of their wings and sprinkled mica flakes over. I also took 3 layers of my sentiment and glued them on top of each other to create a more in depth look, plus outlined the top layer with Ranger Glossy Accents to give a nice glow and a more 3D look.

The one major change in my coloring this week is that I’m trying new ideas and testing new color combinations. Thanks to Alyce’s wonderful new coloring classes at Kit and Clowder Coloring Community, my new favorite skin color combination is: E000, E00, E04, E11, and E21 — please check out her incredible site and sign up for a class or two or really for all of them!

And please remember that I am always happy to create a custom artwork for you with a name, a quote or a special message, endless possibilities really. Also, colors are always customizable options, after all Copic Markers come in 358 different colors!

Please visit my Etsy Store and  Facebook Page for more ideas and colored images.
