Happy Birthday Balloon cards

Hello Crafty Friends!

It was my turn to share a project at Elizabeth Craft Designs and I created a stack of Happy Birthday Balloon cards.  My favorite card is shown above- not only does it look cool, but it is inexpensive to make.  No vellum used!  I created a video showing all of the cards and how to make the above card.

For more photos and instructions, feel free to hop on over to the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog post.  :)

"Thank you" single stem rose

Hello Crafty Friends!

On Sunday I walked into my craft room and was overwhelmed with my mess!  I am not an organized crafter and it was really showing.  I started with cleaning up my workspace...until I noticed how well some die cuts looked together.  Hmm.  Will this project wait or should I continue cleaning?  Inspiration called so I hung up on Cleaning.  :)

The card used two new Elizabeth Craft Designs die sets: Thank you 2 and Stem Rose.  I had run the rose die using scrap pink metallic card stock.  It is pretty with the red outline die cut on top.  The stem was used to die cut green card stock and darker green ink applied.
A scrap piece of watercolor paper was cut to size and distress ink added along the edges.  It was mounted on vintage looking dark ivory card stock.
It is a simple card but has a lovely vintage style.  The calligraphy "thank you" is a focal point and is beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by!  I must return to cleaning the craft room...wait...what is that?  That ribbon would look perfect with that die...

A look at the new releases from Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today's post is a special one as it shares a glimpse at all of the newly released product designed by Suzanne Cannon for Elizabeth Craft Designs.  As I mentioned earlier this week, the release is huge!  I thought I would provide glimpses of all of the release and some crafty comments.

A couple of cards this week were baby based.  Yes, Suzanne designed some adorable dies that would be so sweet on your next crafty project.  The Little Ones die set has the cutest dies that would be great on cards, scrapbook pages or a happy photo frame:

This project used the sweet little carriage.  It is a gift card holder on one side and the adorable carriage on the other side:

Special Delivery is another sweet baby die set.  It goes so well with the baby carriage from Little Ones.
Special Delivery Day - Metal Cutting Dies
Here is a project I shared earlier this week using the die set:

Of course, you can't think about wee ones without thinking about baby Cuddles...Cuddles - Metal Cutting Die
...or watching them sleep.  The Flourished Night Sky would be perfect for all of those photographed naps!

The Welcome Little One stamp set is full of wonderful stamps...

...and is perfect with the Welcome die.

I was very excited to see the Gable Box die!  This die is awesome!  And it fits on a Cuttlebug plate, too.

You know what works well with the Gable Box die?  The Heart & Pawprints Sprays die set.  This set is the bee's knees and looks very cool when used on the box.

A crafty note: the Gable box and Heart spray makes a perfect wedding favor box!

Talking about weddings, Suzanne designed several dies for weddings, wedding cards and creating wedding memories.  (I have a special two day wedding post next weekend...stay tuned!)
Save the Date is gorgeous:

NEW RELEASE! Elizabeth Craft Designs "Thank you"

Hello Sweet Crafty Friends!
It has been a busy week here at I’m a Little Teapot sharing projects using Newly Released product from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  Let’s keep the fun times rolling with another project using a newly released die: Thank You 2.
 Thank You 2 - Metal Cutting Die
I like this die- not only because of the curvaceous calligraphy- but the size.  It fits many of my smaller card dies which means that I can have it framed on a smaller card.  Isn’t it just lovely inside the framed die cut?
Card instructions:
1.       Create top fold card using white card stock.
2.       Cut and mat patterned paper to card front.  (I also applied gold marker to the mat edges.)
3.       Die cut pink card stock using Tallulah Frill Lace Frame die.  Mount to card front.
4.       Die cut patterned paper using Hemstitch Rectangle die.  (I also applied gold marker to edges.)  Mount to card front using double faced foam tape.
5.       Die cut pink and gold card stock using Thank You 2 die.  Offset mount to card front using liquid adhesive.
6.       Create double bow and mount to front using liquid adhesive.  Mount embellishment to bow center.
The romantic and vintage layers look fabulous as the frame for the gorgeous Thank You die cut.

Product Used:

Thank You 2 die set by Suzanne Cannon for Elizabeth Craft Designs
Hemstitch Rectangles and Tallulah Frill Lace Frame dies by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders

Thank you for stopping by!  I do hope that you enjoyed this project using another one of the new releases!

Big Hugs,
Kathy Jo
