Easter Bunny Cards

Welcome my crafty friends!

Easter is upon us and with some great dies in the last release I have been busy making Easter projects which I don’t normally.    The card below is the original one that I designed when dies were first released in January.

When I saw all the cute cards with the bunny bottom I just had to do some.

Wishing all of you a Happy Easter!

Thanks for stopping by and until next time – Happy Crafting!

Welcome my crafty friends!

Today my post is of some Easter treat boxes I have made.  These treat boxes are fun and easy to make.  Using ModaScrap’s Triangle Box along with Joset’s Bunny and a few other dies. Susan’s Garden Notes Ostrich Fern die was used for the carrot top.    These little boxes can be used for so many occasions.

Carrot Boxes

Cut boxes from orange cardstock using ModaScrap Triangle Box.  Emboss using embossing folder of your choice.  Assemble using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.  Els did Technique Friday recently on triangle box you can see it here for assembly info).

Cut tops from green cardstock using Garden Notes Ostrich Fern (1 set for each box).  Using piercing tool poke hole in top lid put fern stems down through attach stems under lid using Kids Choice Glue.

Cut 1 bunny from white cardstock  using Joset’s Bunny die.  Color bunny color of your choice or leave white as I have done coloring just paw pads, nose and inside of ears.  Assemble using Kids Choice Glue.

Cut 1 carrot for each bunny assemble attach to bunny’s paw.  Attach to top of box using Kids Choice Glue.

Fill boxes with treats.

Easter egg tag boxes

Cut from colored cardstock of your choice.

Using white Soft Finish Cardstock sponge on colors of Distress Oxide Ink then die cut using Easter Egg die.  Cut overlay from white Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back.  Attach overlay to top of egg.  Using small hole punch put hole in top of egg.  Using black ink stamp Happy Easter from Spring Sentiment Stamp Set.

I do hope you will make your own treat boxes they really are fun for any occasion.

We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing 

The winners will be announced on Friday, March 23rd on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.
**********************************

Here is how the card was created.

Step 1  Cut 2 Leafy Berry Branches from green cardstock.  Add berries using Nuvou Crystal Drops (Rhubarb Crumble used here) set aside to dry.  Wile cutting from green cardstock cut set of Garden Notes Ostrich Fern.

Step 2  Background made from black cardstock but also could be done on white cardstock.  You will be working with ECD Diamond Background die cut as stencil when finished making background save stencil to be used on another project.  Die cut 1 Diamond Background from cardstock lay on top of piece of black cardstock cut 3-3/4″ X 5″ hold in place with piece of low tack tape.  Using sponge apply Viva 3D paint in 3-4 different colors working paint down in being careful not to bend up stencil.  (You can also use Distress Oxide Inks they just will not be as bright or sparkly.)

Step 3  From 100# white Soft Finish Cardstock using ModaScrap Happy Frame cut 4 times. Trim 2 pieces to 5-1/4″ (trimming from straight end) trim 2 pieces to 3-7/8″ build frame.  Els just did a Technique Friday video on making Happy Frame XL it can be found here.

Step 4  Using Clear Double Sided Adhesive attach frame over background piece.

Step 5  Card base cut black cardstock 3-7/8″ x 10-1/2″ score at 5-1/4″ fold on score line.  Attach frame and background piece to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 6  Using ECD Corners 1 die set cut 4 corners from white Soft Finish Cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back (I chose corners that had five dots which I saved and added back in) attach corners to frame.

Step 7  Cut 5 Primrose 1 from white Soft Finish Cardstock (or you can cut from colored cardstock and shade) color using Copic Markers YR15 and Y38 used here.  Shape using Susan’s Garden 4 pc Tool Kit and Molding Mat Susan has a video on her Facebook page Susan’s Garden Club found here.  Cut several leaves from cardstock either green cardstock or white cardstock coloring with Copics Markes YG97 and G85 used here.  Shape using leaf tool and leaf mat.

Step 8  Attach ferns and berry branches to card front using Kids Choice Glue build your primroses onto card front using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 9  Cut Happy Birthday twice once from black cardstock and once from white Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back attach white Happy Birthday on top of Black.  Attach to bottom of frame using Kids Choice Glue.  Note:  the die I used was an ECD Stand Up Helper Die that is no longer available which I discovered when preparing my tutorial I apologize but I did check out the new release of dies and #1465 Words 1- Celebration has a “happy birthday” die which is a bit longer but you could attach happy to the top of frame and birthday to bottom as well as #783 Happy Birthday and #1284 Happy Birthday.

Hope that this tutorial is an inspiration to you to try your own design.

Birthday Lilacs

2018-01-18 Birthday Lilacs

Hello my crafty friends.  I don’t know about you but I am so wanting spring to come but I know here in Maine we have a while to go so I am creating my own spring by making Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s paper flowers.  My post today uses her new release Garden Notes Lilac 2 along with and her Garden Notes Ladder Fern from previous release.  I have also used ModaScrap’s new release Romantic Bouquet.The “happy birthday” is from an older release of A Way With Words by Suzanne Cannon and all can be purchased from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Here is how the card was created.

Step 1  Make card base by cutting white cardstock 6″ X 12″ score at 6″ fold on score line.

Step 2  Emboss card front using a large embossing folder.

Step 3  Using white Soft Finish Cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on top die cut ModaScrap – Romantic Bouquet and A Way With Words happy birthday.  Also cut happy birthday from black cardstock  with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back.

Step 4 using Silk Microfine Glitter – (Sea Glass used here) coat the Romantic Bouquet and the white happy birthday and burnish in.  Attach the Romantic Bouquet to bottom of card front using Kids Choice Glue.  Attach the happy birthday to the black happy birthday offsetting just a bit to give appearance of a shadow using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 5  Cut 1 set of Garden Notes Ladder Fern from green cardstock shade with Distress Inks and shape by laying fern on Leaf Pad. Take leaf tool from Susan’s Garden 4 pc. all metal tool kit pull tool down center stem and each frond.  Using tweezers from tool kit hold center stem in tweezers and pinch up on fronds.

Step 6  Make 3 flowers and several leaves using Susan’s new Garden Notes Lilac 2 die set using White Soft Finish Cardstock green cardstock for leaves and brown for the stem.  For the purple lilac a couple shades of purple Distress Ink was used on white Soft Finish Cardstock then die cut.  Susan has a video on her Facebook page Susan’s Garden Club which you can see here.

Step 7 Arrange on card front using Kids Choice Glue to attach.

Hope you have enjoyed my post today and that it has inspired you to create your own.
