One of the many exciting things about joining the team at Elizabeth Craft Designs is getting better educated on all the products they are famous for - Shimmer Sheetz, Micro Fine Glitter, ECD Tape and Peel-off Stickers.
I started my papercrafting obsession with rubber stamps, and out of habit I reach for my stamps when I need imagery for a card, but these Peel-off Stickers are addictive! I love the intricate detail and the glossy raised lines that give you a perfect professional image every time. I love using the Peel-off stickers on the double-sided tape sheets, filling with microfine glitter, and then coloring with my Copics.
I also learned in one of Els' classes, with a refresher explanation by my friend Debra, how to use the transfer sheets to pick up the negative pieces of the stickers, too, to make another sticker out of them. In the card below I used both the positive and negative sections of the teacup sticker.
For this card I used some of my new Pop it Ups dies being released next week at the CHA show and shipping to stores immediately after. Please check with your local store to see if they are taking preorders if you're interested in the dies used. The main pop-up was made with the Lots of Pops die, which comes with the pole, two foldover banners and a fish tail banner.
For the cork "Thinking of You" label inside my Tea card, I used one of the decorator labels from the Lucy Label pop up die and nested both slot dies in it before die cutting. The thin cork sheets from Creative Impressions (link in the supply list below) cut beautifully with the new dies!
I used the flourish piece from the Agatha Edges to embellish the interior label (red flourishes) and also for steam rising out of the teacups (cut from vellum)
For the front of the card I needed larger labels, so I turned to the Fancy Label Accordion Album die set to get the pieces I needed.
All of the card embellishments are made using the Peel-off stickers shown below, placed onto double-sided adhesive over white cardstock, glittered, colored and cut out. (The fine pointed scissors are fabulous for fussy cutting!) The cardstock color is Bazzill Cinder.
If you're coming to CHA I'd love to show you these dies in person. Stop by the Elizabeth Craft Designs Booth #441 where I will be demoing throughout the show, unless I'm teaching a class.
