ECD June Die Cut Designer Challenge

Hi everyone,

It's time for our June Die Cut Design Team Designer challenge. Check out the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog today to see what our talented designed created for the challenge.

 Anything but a Card - for our challenge this month let's create a project that is anything but a card. Think along the lines of a home décor item; journaling etc.

For my project today I decided to create a piece of home décor by creating some artwork that can be hung on the wall using a photo frame I purchased a few years ago. There are so many fun frames out there which can be used to display the art we create.


For today's challenge Elizabeth Craft Designs are giving away .... two sizes of the Clear Double Sided Adhesive which will include: a pack of the 5” x 12” sheets and a 10 mm roll of tape, in addition we will also give away a pack of the new ModaScrap 12” x 12” Viaggi Vintage Patterned Paper Pack to 3 winners. 

To enter simply leave a comment on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Challenge post and tell us "Besides the classic card, what are some project ideas you like to play around with?

We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing 

The winners will be announced on Friday, June 9 on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.


To create my art pieces to place into my frame I first cut out 6 pieces of White Soft Finish Cardstock which measure 2 5/8 inches x 3 5/8 inches.

I used distress oxides direct onto my craft sheet to add color to each of the cards using Broken China, Faded Jeans and Cracked Pistachio. 

On the artwork about I added the A Way with Words - Live to the card using black cardstock.

I decorated three of the panels using the ModaScrap Lacy Poppies die set, die cutting the poppies from White Soft Finish Cardstock and then coloring using red and green Copic Markers. 

In the centre of the full poppies I added black prills. 

I also used stencils to add a little more interest to my background on each of the panels. The "Stitched Lines" use the Behind the Scenes Mountains & Split Rail Fence using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

I also used A Way with Stencils - Butterflies and Stars & A Way with Stencils Dotty on each of the backgrounds.

I hope you enjoyed my project today. Don't forget to check out the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog to see all the wonderful creations by our talented designers and for a change to win the giveaway.
