A Man Card - using Vintage Tools Stamps from Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room

I have had some requests for 'man cards' at class recently and I am always happy to oblige! 

For this card we started by embossing the background to give some texture. Then we used some strips of torn He's The Man designer paper top and bottom. 

We stamped the tools using the Vintage Tools stamps - the photo doesn't do justice to the detail that comes out on these stamps from the grain in the wood to the 'shine' on the metal.

Potted Geraniums Card


Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room

This is one of the projects we made this month. We used the Pool Party and Soft Sea Foam Cards & Envelopes (a freebie with purchase during Sale-A-Bration), and created these fun cards using the Potted Geraniums bundle. We loved the two step stamping flower pots that look so 3D! 

We are making another card using this bundle next month - let me know if you would like to join us.

He's The Man - easy man cards for all occasions.

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room

Did you notice the He's The Man Designer Series Paper in the big Stampin' Up! catalogue? No? You can find it on page 132 and it is just fabulous. 

Firstly you have 10 sheets of 12"X12" double sided paper - and then two 12 X 12 card stock sheets full of fantastic die cut images. Making these cards took me just moments. So if you need a man card in a hurry - or indeed a card for an adventurer or a BBQ fan - get in touch with your Stampin' Up! demonstrator - or me if you don't have one! :)

Amazing Year Fancy Fold - and come to a class!

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room 

Well it has been hot hot hot in Elizabeth's Craft Room - but much cooler in our lovely teaching room at Romsey Golf Club. 

Here is one of the projects we made this month - a fancy fold card...that stands up in a box style but also folds flat for posting. At my classes I also include measurements for cards like this so my lovely ladies can make them again at home. 

We used the Amazing Year stamps which are so much fun to colour. 


Would you like to join us for a class in August where we will be making another fancy fold amongst our three projects?  I have three dates available.

Heavenly Hollyhocks and the Marker to Stamp Technique

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room 

Let's take a look at another of our June class projects. We did two projects using the 'Marker to Stamp' technique. We hadn't done this for a few years and it is a lovely way to get multiple colours on to a stamped image.

Here we used the new Heavenly Hollyhocks stamps. If you would like these get in touch me and I will be happy to help. 🙂
