Designer Inspiration with Elizabeth: Day 5

June 5, 2015

As the temps outside begin to rise, here on the blog we are also heating up with designer inspiration! Over the next several weeks our designers will be bringing you inspiration and design ideas featuring their trademark styles and products from our new collection, Sunshine and Smiles. This week Elizabeth Allan joins us with her simple yet sumptuous designs!


No complicated coloring, shading, or detailed stamping are required to create this pair of happy cards. All you need are Creative Dies: 51-145 feLINE and 51-140 Diamond Border.


Elizabeth has used layers of both the negative and positive portions of each Creative Die in her design.


And that extra special touch? A small gem to embellish one of the sweet kitties!

This next design is both modern and versatile.


Simply change the sentiment to fit your needs. Or change the cardstock colors to suit your event… for example, personalize a wedding card with colors from the wedding party or how about red and green diamonds for a holiday design?

And remember, TGIF!

    Elizabeth, Both of your cards are fascinating. I don’t know if it is the colors you used, or the designs, but I could just look at them for a long, long, time. Very clever, what you have accomplished on both cards. Thanks for sharing.
