Nailed It & Build It Pop and Flip Card

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

There have been lots of these pop and flip cards around and in fact I taught one at my recent 'Cards that make you go Ooh' special class.

So here is my take on the style, featuring the Nailed It stamps and Build It framelits. The outside looks fairly plain apart from the addition of the super fancy Urban Underground Embellishment screws! The 'husband' stamp comes from Guy Greetings.


The clever bit happens when you open the card and the inside pops and twists out to reveal the tools! I love the little nail, screw and nut stamps that go with the tools.

High Tide Silhouette with Watercolour Wash

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

Today's card was inspired by one by my team member Sara Harnett, who did a beautiful hand watercolored background.

I took the cheat's way and used the Watercolour Wash background inked up with Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red.



After I stamped the lighthouse image in Basic Black, I used black and grey Watercolour Pencils and an Aqua Painter to add more dark colour to the lighthouse and get a true silhouette effect.

High Tide Block Stamping

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

Have you ever accidentally inked up the back of your block and not your stamp? Well if you have then did you know you had found a technique? Block stamping to make backgrounds is a fun technique and here I used it to create a base for the High Tide stamp set.

Just ink up your block - I used two colours - spritz with water and press down. Wait for the paper to dry before stamping any images over the top.

Do you like the effect?

High Tide Reflections

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

This is a card we did at class last month using the reflection technique.  The High Tide stamp set just really lends itself to all sorts of techniques and styles and we loved making this one - with reflecting done for both the birds and the grass.

Hope you like it.

Awesomely Artistic with Vellum Layer Window Card

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

This is a card we actually did in class last year - and I suddenly realised I hadn't shared it. We used the Squares Framelits to cut an aperture in the card front and used the white cut out inside the card and stamped the dragonfly image from Awesomely Artistic.

We then embossed a piece of Vellum Cardstock with the Petal Burst Embossing folder and cut and irregular edge then adhered it to the card front.

We stuck a piece of window sheet to the frame and then popped those up above the level of the card front using Foam Adhesive Strips to add some dimension.

The greeting comes from Feather Together. There are a lot of steps - but the cards looks lovely!

Swirly Scribbles Celebration Card

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

Today I am sharing a large card (this is an A4 folded in half to make an A5 size finished card). I wanted a bold celebration card and went for this simple die-cut design in Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Whisper White.

All the scribbles are cut using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and the greeting comes from Confetti Celebrations.

So In Love Bundle Card

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

Today's card was made with the stunning Falling In Love designer series paper, which sadly is retiring soon!

I simply added a die cut piece done using the So Detailed Thinlits dies. I used a greeting and tiny flower stamps from the co-ordinating So In Love stamp set and  finished with a Vanilla Satin Ribbon bow and two of the stunning Falling in Love embellishments.

Welcome Baby Card with Made With Love

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

I made this card to welcome a new great niece into the world. My niece Sophie, like me, is a great Walt Disney World fan - so I used my only non-Stampin' Up! punch to make the Mickey shapes.

I stamped the rest of the card using the Made with Love stamp set. I used Sweet Sugar Plum ink and ribbon on Thick Whisper White and I was very pleased with how it came out. Hope you like it too.
