Beer Mugs and Wine Flagons!

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

Well I seem to be stressing the alcohol in today's two projects - but they both feature the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper I showed in Tuesday's video.

The first one has a more vintage look with images from the Tuscan Vineyard stamp set.

The second one is my favourite. I first stamped the beer glasses on to the Wood Textures DSP, then again on to Very Vanilla Cardstock. I could then colour in the beer and fussy cut the main part of the glasses out without having to cut the handles! I just adhered the glasses over the outlines on the DSP and saved myself a lot of fiddly cutting! Oh and the drinks and greeting here came from the Mixed Drinks stamp set.

Bike Ride In the City

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

Today's card is a combination of two stamp sets and a returning colouring base - yay - the Glossy White Cardstock is back!

This cardstock retired a few years ago, but I hung on to a few sheets as it works like a dream with a brayer - especially our Sponge Brayers. It is so easy to blend the ink and it dries really fast. If you use our Archival Ink you will need to heat set it - but our other inks need no heat. You can use markers on it too.

Here I combined Bike Ride and In the City to make a cute new home card - love the dog in the basket!



Back on Tuesday with another fun project - and a video too!

Anyone for a bike ride?

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room ,

Well I haven't ridden a bike in years, (apart from those stationary ones in the gym and those things are hard to fall off), but this stamp set almost makes me want to take to the open road!

You can build your bike in any colour because the frame and coloured elements are separate stamps. You can have your bike carry books, a basket, flowers, apples or even this little dog!

The balloon and the sentiment are from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set that I shared on Tuesday.



For this version, I made a shaker card by punching a hole through the wheel area and stamping again on the inside of the card. I used Window Sheet and sequins to create a sweet shaker card effect. Again the greeting is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.



I'll be back on Saturday with another completely different card using Bike Ride. See you then!

Balloons in June

Hello and welcome to Elizabeth's Craft Room and Happy Fathers Day!

Finally in my show and tell of our new In Colours - today I have a balloon card for you. The stamp set I used is Happy Birthday Gorgeous which as well as having some great greetings that work with both the Classic Label and the new Pretty Label punch - also features some sweet flowers and balloons - and yes they fit the Balloon Punch too!

I simply stamped the balloon outline then stamped over with the dotty second step stamp (ooh that's a tongue twister), in each of the in colours.



Well I hope you've enjoyed my In Colour festival over the last week - expect to see lots more of these colours popping up - I just adore them.
