Elizabeth Craft Designs Artist Team August Challenge

Hi Everyone,
Welcome back to the Elizabeth Craft Designs Artist Team Challenge. Every month the Artist Team is challenged with a theme to showcase the fabulous product from Elizabeth Craft Designs. This month the challenge is Gift Giving.

There is a chance for you to win a $20 gift card. Visit the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog Post. Leave a comment and answer this question. What are some handmade gifts you have created over the years. 3 lucky winners will be chosen in a random drawing.


For my project I bought a plain glass jar at the local dollar store to decorate which is perfect for a gift. Below you will find the steps to replicate this decorated jar.



  • Step 1 - Diecut Lace Pocket 2 times with Soft Finish cardstock. (The jar I used is small so if you use a larger jar you may have to diecut 3.) Adhere to jar aligning from the bottom. I had to trim a section off to not overlap. 
  • Step 2 - add embellishment to hide the seams. I used gems. This step is optional. 
  • Step 3 - cut a small piece of Soft Finish Cardstock and coat the top with a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Diecut using the heart from Beaded Oval Frames. 
  • Step 4 - Remove the release sheet and sprinkle Silk Microfine Glitter (I used Pewter). Remove excess and using the tip of your finger in a circular motion bring out the shine and set it in. Make a small hole towards the top of the heart. 
  • Step 5 - Add a string around the opening and add the glitter heart. Add a bead at both ends and tie at knot at both ends to secure it. 
  • Step 6 - Add a ribbon around the opening and secure it with a bow. 
  • Step 7 - Decorate with dry flowers, pens or scrapbooking tools to name a few ideas.

Here is the challenge (4th of July Jars). I chose the sketch.
Finished measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded.

All designs were printed on white cardstock and then assembled as a paper kit. I used the Stitched Rectangles and Dotted Scallop Rectangles die to create a window. I diecut the flowers from the cut-a-parts (3 circles). I love how they turned out. For close up see photo below. I diecut the sentiment with the Fishtail Banners Die.

Finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded

For this card I chose to go with black, white, grey theme. I used the dark grey plain cardstock for the base of my card. I used the gorgeous 12x12 patterned paper for my background and mat it with light grey plain cardstock. I love the black/white polka dot bow and managed to do a double bow. I used the plain enamel dots grey. For the sentiment I used the glitter paper from the Celebrate Kit and diecut it 3 times (glitter top layer, grey middle layer and black last later) I offset it slightly to highlight it on this busy card. See photo below.

Club Scrap June Artist Team Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Club Scrap's June Artist Team Challenge. This month the Artist Team was challenged to create using one layer. This was my hardest challenge yet but I have to admit I love how it took me out of my comfort zone and helped me create the beauties below. Before we start let's take care of some business. If you came from Roni's Blog then you came from the right place. If you didn't you can start at the beginning with Karen from Club Scrap's Blog.

Finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

For this card I used the Pattern Play Grey Cardstock for the base of my card. I used the Twin Tags Circles Stencil with Club Scrap Onyx ink, then I slightly offset and used the Club Scrap Peridot Ink. I used the Club Scrap Pigment White Ink to stamp with Pattern Play Stamps. I love what the white ink did to the dots underneath.


Finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded

I used the 8 1/2" x 11" plain white cardstock from Paris Flea Market for the base of my card. I masked the bottom edge 1" to keep it clean. Using Oxide Inks and a Blending Tool I inked directly to cardstock. I spritzed some water and let dry. I used the gorgeous bicycle stamp from the Paris Flea Market collection using Club Scrap India Ink. The sentiment is from the Bouquet Stamps and also stamped with India Ink.


Finished card measures 4 1/4" x  5 1/2" folded

For this card I used the 12x12 Cherry Blossoms patterned paper for the base of my card. The beauty of the Oxide Inks is that you can ink on a darker cardstock and the colors shows amazing in real life. I used the Wild Rose Stencil with the Oxide Ink. The top layer is the Club Scrap India In. The sentiment is from the Dahlia collection.


Finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded

For my last card I used the Pattern Play Grey Cardstock for the base of my card. Once again I used the Wild Rose Stencil but this time creating different colored flowers. The sentiment is from the Color Me Happy collection.



Now head on over to Lisa's Blog to continue the awesome inspiration of one layer projects.
