Those Who Find a Faithful Friend

A faithful friend is definitely a treasure!  I love this beautiful sentiment combined with the A Way With Words - Friends die cut.  I have designed a 6 inch card.  A piece of design paper was cut 5 1/2 inches square and attached to a white card.  

Friends - Metal Cutting Die

Use the A Way With Words Friends die to die cut one yellow 'Friends'.

Always Be My Friend, Set of 3 Stamps - Mounted

Use the Always Be My Friend stamp set and stamp 'Those who find a faithful friend have found a treasure' onto white card stock using black VersaFine Ink.  Die cut the stamped sentiment using a Dotted Scallop die. 

Use rectangle dies to create a frame.  I used the Dotted Scallop Rectangles, Stitched Rectangle and Postage Stamp Rectangle die sets.  Attach the stamped sentiment square on the right side of this rectangle frame.

I wanted to duplicate the flowers, in the design paper, to go beside the sentiment.  I used Susan's Garden Notes Poppy die set, Garden Notes Lilac die set for the blue flowers , and Joset Designs Behive die set for the yellow flowers.  The leaves were die cut using the ModaScrape Leafy Branch 4 and Leafy Branch 6 die sets.  These dies are from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Miss You

Good Morning.  Today I designed this card for my Elizabeth Craft Designs, color design team blog post.

 This cute bird is wanting to let someone know they are missed.  Three different Krista Schneider stamp sets and matching dies were used to create this card.

 Start with a 6-inch card and attach a 5 1/2 inch square of design paper to the front.  Using the Feather Friends Clear Stamp Set, stamp the bird and two (purple) flowers.  Color with markers.  Die cut using the matching die set.

Use the Honey Bear Clear Stamp Set to stamp the butterflies.  Color and die cut using the matching die set.  Use the Teddy Bear Picnic Stamp Set to stamp the three flowers at the end of the branch the bird is sitting on.  Color and die cut with the matching die set.

Use the Stitched Fishtail die set to die cut one Fishtail.  I used Vanilla Cardstock.  Use the Dotted Scallop Circle Die Set to die cut one circle the width of the Fishtail.  I used Pink Cardstock.

Use the Entwined Circle Die Set to die cut the smallest Entwined Circle.  I used Vanilla Cardstock.  Attach the die cut circles to the Fishtail, as shown.  Attach the Feathered Friends Bird on the Branch to the lower portion of the die cut circles, as shown.  Attach the three small flowers at the end of the branch.

Attach the two purple flowers from the Feathered Friends stamp set to the lower right corner.  Attach the Butterflies from the Honey Bear Stamp Set as shown.   Use the General Sentiments stamp set and VersaFine Black Ink to stamp the sentiment.

I think this card would put a smile on someone's face when they realize someone is missing them.

I love creating cards using the Joset Designs Feather die set.  These feathers were die cut using White Soft Finish Cardstock.  I sponged on a light blue ink in the center of each feather, leaving the tips white.  A light gray marker was used for the veins in the feathers.

This is a 6 inch square card.  A piece of design paper was attached to the front.  The Els van de Burgt Studio Fitted Rectangle dies were used to create white frame.  To decorate the top of the frame, one of the die cuts from the Fitted Frames 1 Lace Rectangle dies was attached over the frame.

Two white Arrows were die cut using White Soft Finish Cardstock and were attached on each side of the framed Feathers.

The sentiment was stamped using the What's Up? Clear Stamp Set, and was die cut using the Dotted Scallop Rectangles die set.  It was attached using dimensional tape.

Thanks for stopping by today.

It is time for the April Elizabeth Craft Designs, Design Team Color Challenge. This month our challenge is to design a card plus to complete the inside.  You can see all the cards created by the Design Team on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog at this LINK.

For today's challenge, Elizabeth Craft Designs is giving away a "$20 gift card to use on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website” to 3 winners. 

To enter simply leave a comment on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Challenge post (LINK above) and tell us "What is your favorite or most used sentiment when creating a card?

Three lucky winners will be selected in a random drawing.  The winners will be announced on Friday, April 21 on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.


For my card I chose the Krista Schneider Bird-day Party stamps for the theme. I also used Krista's Honey Bear stamp set.

This is a 6-inch square card. Use a 5 1/2 inch square piece of card stock for the front of the card.  Use Susan's Earth & Sky Stencil to sponge on clouds and grass, as shown in the picture above.  

 I created a Slider Card using the Joset Designs Slider and Spinners die set.  For instructions on how to create a Slider/Spinner card, you can watch the Els van de Burgt Technique Friday with Els Spinner Card Video at this LINK.  For the Slider, use the Scalloped Heart Die set to die cut the heart.  Use the sentiment from the Bird-day Party stamp set and stamp it inside the heart using black ink.  Assemble the slider as shown on the video.

Use the Bird-day Party stamp set to stamp the birds, gifts and balloons.  Color with either markers or watercolors.  Die cut the pieces using the matching dies.

Use the Honey Bear stamp set to stamp three trees.  Color and cut out with the matching dies.  (Note:  The tree i created is the branch that has the bee hive attached.  Die cut the branches and carefully cut off the bee hive, to create trees.) 

Attach all the Bird-day Party and Honey Bear tree die cut pieces to the card as shown.

Use Susan's CountryScapes Cloud & Sky die set to die cut grass for the bottom of the card.

Use the Els van de Burgt Corners 1 die set to die cut two blue corners and attach to the top of the card.

To complete the inside of the card, I used the A Way With Words Happy Birthday die set.  It was die cut using blue card stock.  One of the birds from the Bird-day Party was attached on the lower right corner.
