Nailed It & Build It Vintage Car Card

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

So as I am sharing this card, I am wondering - do you have Haynes car manuals everywhere in the world? I remember using mine to service my mini when I first started driving...but now they just plug my Hyundai into a computer to see what it needs - how times change!

Anyway, things don't change when you own a 1936 Morris 8 like my husband Mike - so this is the birthday card I made for him using the Nailed It and Build It stamps and dies...


Now if truth be told - Haynes Manuals didn't actually start till 1960 - so the manual my DH uses is the one that came with the car - but it was fun making up and mini book on the front of his birthday card. I used the Guy Greetings stamp set for the car and greeting stamps. 

Hope you like it.

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

As soon as I saw the tools from the Nailed It stamp set, I knew I wanted to hang them on a wooden shed wall!

This card is made with the Hardwood background stamp and the tools are hung on screw heads created with punched silver foil and scored across.

Window Shopping Box with Vintage Leaves

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

I have made lots of these hexagon boxes with the Window Box Thinlits dies - but this is one of my favourites - finished on the top with Vintage Leaves stamps.

I layered them with a Lace Doily and added a popped up greeting to the outside (you can make those pop ups with a die in the set.

The flower in the centre is fussy cut from the Succulent Garden designer paper that I used to make the box. It all looks so co-ordinated it makes me happy. :)

Nailed It with Hardwood Card

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

Today's project was one we did at class using the Hardwood background stamp, Nailed It stamps and Build It framelits.

*** This stamp set and framelits are both retiring from the Stampin' Up! catalogue! Scroll to the bottom of this post and follow the link to my online store if you would like them.

\

We stamped a 'plank' of Crumb Cake cardstock with Soft Suede ink using the background stamp then stamped images from the Nailed It set on a Very Vanilla layer and sponged the edges.

Next we stamped the screwdriver on to Silver Foil and Daffodil Delight cardstock, and cut out using the Build It Framelits. We used a White Chalk Marker to make the screwdriver pop in to life

Love this card!

Mediterranean Moments Cafe Card

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

Today's card is made with the Mediterranean Moments stamp set. I stamped the largest image in Crumb Cake ink on the background layer and sponged the edges.

I then stamped the cafe image in Grey Archival Ink and coloured with the Stampin' Up! Watercolour Pencils. I used an Aqua Painter to blend and achieve a subtle washed look. I hope you like the effect.

Dragonflies in Copper

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

This is a card we made at class earlier in the year and I realised I hadn't shared it on my blog. It looks more involved than it is to make.

We first copper heat embossed the dots from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and stamped the sentiment from the same set at the bottom.

We cut the largest circle from the Stitched Shaped Framelits and sponged with Soft Suede and Bermuda Bay ink. We then die cut the dragonflies and adhered them with tombow glue.

Beautiful You....again!

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

Happy April Fools Day!

There is something about this image that I keep coming back to. I love the combination of Pacific Point and Mint Macaron. Here I even used some Wink of Stella on her umbrella as rain drops.

I've layered the greeting on oval Stitched Shaped Framelits and gone a bit April Foolish with the embellishments - I count three pearls (coloured with a sharpie marker), 5 uncoloured pearls and three enamel hearts!

VIDEO Beautiful You Paper Piecing

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

This technique card was one we did at a class back in February I think and I just thought I would share a video for anyone who wasn't at class - or who has forgotten how to do it by now! LOL

I love this simple card - and I love the co-incidence that the green leaf looks like a jacket over the dress. Hope you enjoy the video and find some outline stamps and DSP and give it a go.

Mothers' Day Gift with Beautiful You

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

Well I hope my Mum is not looking in today - because I am sharing her Mother's Day gift - I will tell her not to peek!

I used the Beautiful You stamp set and stamped in Sweet Sugarplum and Basic Black on tissue paper. I heated the wax to apply it to a large pillar candle. I bought a large candle holder and some ribbon and decorative gravel finished the look.

They stand about 10" tall and look even better in real life!

I made another for my mother in law too...this one is finished with glass beads and is done in Flirty Flamingo.



Wishing an early Happy Mothering Sunday (which is what we brits traditionally call Mothers' Day) to all my blog visitor mothers. x
