Elizabeth Craft Designs May Coloring Challenge - Slider and Spinners

Hi Everyone,

It's time for another Coloring Challenge at Elizabeth Craft Designs. Be sure to head on over to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog to leave a comment on the blog post and answer this question. What Elizabeth Craft Designs image would you like to make spin or slide? The prize is the Slider and Spinners die to 3 lucky people.

Slider and Spinner cards are the rage right now and Elizabeth Craft Designs has your back. With the Slider and Spinners die you can create many different types of slider and spinner cards. Below is one example. Because I used a circle underneath the balloon is makes the balloon turn as it goes from side to side. Head on over to the blog to see more examples using the Slider and Spinners die.

I used the Sliders and Spinners die set for the balloon, the Krista Schneider Bird-day Party Clear Stamps with the coordinating dies. For the layer I used the Stitched Rectangles die from Els van de Burgt Studio.

Thank you for stopping by. Remember to go to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog and leave a comment and while you are there be sure to check out what the rest of the team did.

Club Scrap Cherry Blossom Kit

Hi Everyone,

Today I am going to show you how to mix the Club Scrap Cherry Blossoms Deluxe Kit with the Digital Kit. The digital kit is great for accents in smaller form for cards. The beauty about digital is you can resize the designs. 

Finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

I used the plain cardstock from the Deluxe Kit for the base of my card. I trimmed the patterned paper to 4" x 5 1/4". With a black marker I applied it all around the edges then adhered to center front of card. I used the cut-a-parts from the digital kit which is also my sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by. The new Adirondacks kit from Club Scrap is now shipping. Its perfect for Father's Day cards and masculine cards.

Creating a DIY Background using Club Scrap Paris Flea Market Stamps and Distress Oxides

Hi Everyone,

Today I am showing you how to do your own background using Club Scrap Paris Flea Market Stamps and Distress Oxide Inks. I have done this with the regular Distress Inks but never had the same results. I am really excited by how vibrant this technique is with the oxides. Its hard to believe I started with a white cardstock.

First I covered my paper with the oxide inks and used my heat gun to dry, in between adding colors I sprayed some water. When I was finished I set aside to dry completely. I used the Paris Flea Market Unmounted Stamps using Walnut Stain and dabs of Faded Jeans in random areas. I wanted some of the blue on the stamping. Here are the results.

Finshed card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

I didn't have the heart to cover my background with any other paper so I decided to use Diecuts in black to make the background stand out. I used Elizabeth Craft Designs dies Curvy Leaves, Small Butterfly & Happy Flowers (in orange). I used the sentiment from the Unmounted Stamps from the Dahlia Kit. For the finishing touch I added a gem to the center of the diecut flower.

Thanks for stopping by. If you want to create your own background you may want to check out the stamps from the new Adirondack Kit. There are some ideal stamps to use for this technique.
