It’s Release time at i-Crafter and you won’t be disappointed. I chose the Box Pops You Are Positive Add On and used it as a sentiment to be the main focus. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.


Step 1 - Trim White Cardstock to 7” x 6”, score at 3 1/2” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 - Trim Patterned Paper to 3 1/4” x 5 3/4” and adhere to card using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. (I used Honey Bee Stamps Beach Vibes 6”x 6” paper pad.)

Step 3 - Create a DIY Background. I used a Gel Press with Distress Oxide Salty Ocean and sprayed it with water. I added the Cardstock on top and pressed it to transfer the ink onto the cardstock. 

Step 4 - Diecut Box Pop You Are Positive Add On using the panel created from Step 3. Be sure to add one of the words. I chose Amazing. Adhere to card front using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. You could leave it alone but I diecut it again and created an inlay with the same Patterned Paper I used in Step 2.

Elizabeth Craft Designs March Group Post

Hi everyone,

Welcome to the March Group Post with Elizabeth Craft Designs. The theme this month is Spring. I chose the gorgeous Floral Burst Background die inked in the colors of the rainbow. It also makes 2 cards with one diecut. Below you will the steps for both cards.

Card #1


Card #2


Card #1
Step 1 - Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", score at 4 1/4" and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 - Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". Apply Distress Oxide Inks using an Ink Applicator in rainbow colors. I used Candied Red, Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonade, Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet. Although my diecut didn't used the area with the Wilted Violet I ended up using that section for my sentiment. 


Step 3 - Diecut Floral Burst Background using the panel created from Step 2. Gently remove the diecut from the die trying to keep all the pieces together. Place Press 'N Seal on the front and put back any pieces that may have come loose. Flip the diecut and adhere Glue to the backside to the negative pieces. Then turn around and place it on the card front. Press it in and then carefully remove the Press 'N Seal. You could actually flip the positive diecut and call it a day but I wanted 2 cards so I used the positive piece for another card.


Example of flipping the positive. It makes a cool background.

Step 4 - Stamp Spring Sentiments using Versamark on Black Cardstock. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a Heat Tool. Diecut Fitted Fishtails and adhere to card using Glue.

Card #2
Step 1 - Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", score at 4 1/4" and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 - Adhere Glue to the backside of the positive diecut from Card #1 from Step 3 to the card front.

Step 3 - Stamp Spring Sentiments to the piece left over from the first card using Versamark. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a Heat Tool. Trim and adhere to card using Glue.






These cards can be used for any occasion by changing the sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Hi everyone,

Welcome to the Elizabeth Crafts Designs February Group Post. The Group Post theme for this month is All About Our Loved Ones. I used Joset Designs Heart Background, Honey Bear and Heart Cutout dies to create a Sent With Love Card. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.


Step 1 - Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 11” x 4 1/4”, score at 5 1/2” and fold in half for a horizontal top fold card. (A2)

Step 2 - Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 5 1/2” x 4 1/4” (2 times). Apply various colors of Distress Oxide Inks onto a Gel Press using a brayer. I used Worn Lipstick, Candied Apple and Dusty Concord. Place the Blank Cardstock on top of the Gel Press, place a copy paper on top and rub to get the ink transferred. Remove the panel and let dry. Repeat Step with second Blank Cardstock.

Step 3 - Diecut Heart Background using the panel created from Step 2. Adhere to card using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 4 - Diecut Heart Cutouts using the second panel created from Step 2. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 5 - Diecut Honey Bear using Kraft Cardstock for the head and body parts and Black Cardstock for the eye and nose. Diecut Small Heart you have in your stash using the panel created from Step 2. If you do not have a Heart die then draw one and cut it out. Apply Distress Oxide Walnut Stain to all the Kraft coloured diecut pieces. Assemble the bear using Kids Choice Glue and tweezers and be sure to add the small heart. Adhere to card using Kids Choice Glue. 

Step 6 - Stamp Love Sentiments using Versafine Onyx Black Ink to the heart that the bear is holding.
