Bloom Grow Blossom

Hi Everyone!  I am back today to showcase some cards featuring products from the last of Elizabeth Crafts Designs new products, this time from Krista Schneider.

Up first is a 6″x6″ card featuring the background stamp, Floral Background.  To create this card, I stamped out the image in some archival ink, and then using my Daniel Smith water colors (the Primatek line), I very loosely watercolored the image.  In all series this card took me all of about five minutes to color.

To finish the card off I pulled out the Plant Grow Bloom sentiment set and added a sentiment and the little butterfly that was adhered with some 3D adhesive to make it pop up.  I matted the image in some Cafe Au Lait Soft Finish paper and adhered it to a 6×6 card frame made out of Forest Green Soft Finish paper.


My Second card features the new April Showers stamp set, and the new Stripes Background stamp.

To create the card, I stamped out the background in some London grey Memento ink onto some cardstock, and then colored in an ombre effect using my copic markers.  The blue tones were created with B21, B23, B24, B26, B28 and B29.  The Yellows were created with Y11, Y13, Y15, and Y17.

I stamped out the sentiment onto some scratch with the same grey ink, and die cut it using the coordinating April Showers Die.  I added it to the card using some pop adhesives.

Finally, I die cut the boots with the grey ink on scrape cardstock and colored it in with my copics using the same colors as the background.  I die cut it with the coordinating die and added it to a card with pop up adhesives.


My final card was made using the new Garden Party stamp set and the coordinating Garden Party Dies.

I started the card by stamping over and over again the band of flowers across a sheet of Soft Finish Cardstock.  I then colored them in quickly with my copics, making certain to drop in a shadow beneath each row.

I then stamped out the girl, the kitty and the sentiment onto some scratch card stock, and colored them in with my copics and die cut them out.

The images were adhered to the card using some 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing all the new products from Elizabeth Crafts Designs.  Stay tuned as the design team continues to play with the new line and show all the pretty things you can make with them.
