ECD Design Team Focus on New Releases for Becky Seddon

2018-01-06 Cage of Love1

Hello my crafty friends welcome to my blog.

Today I have created a card to showcase the new release of designer Becky Seddon at Elizabeth Craft Designs.  I have used Free As A Bird and Heartfelt Love and there are 10 more dies that are in the release so be sure to go to visit Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog to see all the great creations from ECD 2018 Design Team.  These dies are available now.

Although I have not done a tutorial for this card I wanted to include pictures of how I used the large heart from Becky’s Heartfelt Love die set to make my heart card.  The first photo look closely at top of paper it shows how you place die just slightly above card fold so that it doesn’t completely cut off fold giving you a hinge.

“Love” in a Mist

2017-11-25 Lovein mist1

Hello my crafty friends thank you for stopping by my blog today.   I know it is such a busy time for many and  appreciate your taking the time to visit today.  Wishing you all the happiest of Holidays!

Today I am posting a card I made for a special couple that just got married.  I have used a couple of Susan ‘s Garden new releases Love in a Mist along with Els van de Burgt Scalloped Hearts.  Just love this new Love in a Mist die it is so versatile it is a great addition to your die collection.

For card base cut White Soft Finish Cardstock 6″ X 11″ score at 5-1/2″ fold on score line.

Cut blue cardstock 5-1/4″ X 5-3/4″ adhere to card base using Clear Double Sided Adhesive

Using largest Scalloped Hearts Die cut 1 heart from White Soft Finish Cardstock.  Attach to card front using dimensional tape.

Cut 3 Love in a Mist flowers from either White Soft Finish Cardstock which would be colored with alcohol or blue cardstock shaded with PanPastels Set 2.  Shape and assemble using Susan’s 4 pc. Tool Kit along with molding and leaf mat and Kid’s Choice Glue.  Susan’s Garden Club on Facebook has some great videos which help create flowers.  Susan does a Live Tutorial weekly on this Facebook page.  She is taking a break but will be back in January but all tutorials she has done are still there.

Cut leaves and 3-4 Garden Notes Maiden Hair Ferns from green cardstock.  On leaves with fingers pinch up leaves a bit to give dimension.  On ferns lay on molding mat use medium ball tool from kit to give some shape.  Add a little shading using Distress Ink.

To cut Love add Clear Double Sided Adhesive to back of black cardstock use love die from Suzanne Cannon’s Baby Love die set.  Add to left side of heart.

Adhere ferns, flowers and leaves using Kids Choice Glue to right side of heart.

Hope you have enjoyed my post today and will create your own card.  Click on any of product pictures below to purchase takes you to Elizabeth Craft Designs site.
