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

Inside the Lines with Stampin' Markers

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

Today's card shows the power of restraint! LOL

I am a more is more girl so actually leaving some white space is tough for me - but here I wanted to pretty image to shine though and not be overwhelmed by too much colouring in! I used the Inside the Lines FREE designer paper and used markers to colour just some for the flowers. The stamps come from Birthday Bright apart from the lace which is stamped with Delicate Details another free Sale-A-Bration choice. (Just a week to go now!)

So do you like the less is more look - or do you think I should have coloured the lot? :)

Nailed it in Bermuda Bay

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

So far when I have created projects using the fabulous Nailed It stamps and co-ordinating Build It framelits - I have stuck to 'proper' colours for tools - yellow and red....but why not have some subtle, Bermuda Bay coloured tools? Frankly I think Draper & Co are missing a trick! 😀


Here I stamped the tools on Silver Foil paper then in the case of the hammer and screwdriver on Whisper White. I then coloured in the handles using Watercolour Pencils a Blender Pen. I stuck the silver parts to the white and then cut out using the Framelits. (Washi tape is useful to keep everything in place while you cut).

All the nails and screws are from the Nailed It stamp set and the Happy Birthday is from Tin of Cards.

Pink Dragonfly Dreams Cards

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

Today's cards are two more featuring Dragonfly Dreams - and yes I make no apology - I just love those stamps and Detailed Dragonfly dies!

On both I used papers from the stunning Falling In Love designer series paper. The top one I cut the largest dragonfly in Gold Glimmer Paper, the bottom one I used Vellum Cardstock for the medium dragonfly and Sahara Sand cardstock for the little ones.

I had coloured the body on the vellum one with a marker and gently daubed the wings with Blushing Bride ink. I finished the cards with sequins and pearls respectively.

Which one do you prefer?

VIDEO Beautiful You Pizza Box

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

I taught this simple box finished with the Beautiful You stamps in my January class, so thought I would share it with you on video today.

I hope you enjoy it. And remember we have only 2 more weeks to enjoy Sale-A-Bration - so let me know if you would like to place an order to take advantage of those freebies before it's too late!

P.S. OK - so having told you about the rock - now I am getting questions about the balls! LOL Well yes they are just props I have been using in my photos and they are edible in theory, though I'm not trying it. They are giant gum balls that were in pretty jars on decorated tables at a Stampin' Up! event for Silver Elite+ team leaders (and yes that is me!) We got a gorgeous bag and other gifts - but I thought at once what I would use those gum balls for! So as well as all the other advantages of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator - we get free balls! :) If you want to know about all the more tangible rewards - get in touch and I will tell you more! During Sale-A-Bration is a great time to join.

Detailed Dragonfly - simple but effective card

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

Such a simple card today - but I love it. I cut two lots of the group of dragonflies using the Detailed Dragonfly dies and using tombow glue adhered them to a base layer in the same Very Vanilla cardstock.

I then cut the largest dragonfly in Silver Foil and attached that on top. A sentiment from the matching stamp set Dragonfly Dreams and I was done. Simple but effective.

Celebration Duo Embossing Folders Card

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

I did a video on how to do cards like this back on the 10th January and realised I hadn't given you a good look at the 'other' card I flashed across the screen - so better late than never, here it is.

I just brayered with one colour over the top to the Happy sentiment from the Celebration Duo Embossing Folders. The other stamps are from the Birthday Bright stamp set. The Timeless Tags make great card embellishments as well as tags as you can see and you can choose what you cut out of the blank tag - butterflies, stars or petals. And of course then you can use the cut outs too!

P.S. Someone asked about the piece of rock I've been using in my photos recently - so here is the story. I saw it on a beach when my husband Mike and I were on a November holiday down in Cornwall. I liked the seams in it and thought at once it would make a good photography prop, so once he had finished impressing me with skimming stones I got him to pass it up to me on the quay side. So now you know :)

VIDEO Inside the Lines - with Aqua Painter and Blender Pen

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

Today's video features the Inside the Lines DSP - which you can receive FREE during Sale-A-Bration. I show how to simply watercolour with inks to get a great card front.

Here is a little secret especially for my blog readers - when I was filming this I actually thought at one stage - no this is rubbish - I'm going to have to start again! But I carried on and once I had finished I actually loved the effect. So don't be too quick to judge your results - we are often our own worst critics.

And I worked out you could make 96 cards like this with just one pack of this paper - or make large home decor projects to give as gifts.
