Joset Designs

I Love you just the way you are

March 24, 2021

Hi everyone, here is Lisanne again. It’s my turn to give you some inspiration. This time I will use different dies from the Safari Collection of Joset. I really love this collection, with all the animals and fun accessories.

So lets start with the beginning. I made a background with clouds and Distress Ink. The Adventure Edges 1 and 2 are great to use for building up the card. So I made mountains which I coloured with Distress Ink Stormy Sky and Peeled Paint. I also die cut some grass that I coloured with Distress Ink Peeled Paint and Forest Moss. I glued only the bottom and the sides so I can put something between the layers.

Between the layers grass and mountains I put the tree. I also coloured this tree with Distress Ink (Ground Espresso, Vintage Photo and Forest Moss). You can make the tree with or without green so there are possibilities in your making.

Now it’s time to build up the animals. In this Safari Collection there are 4 animals, the Zebra, the Giraffe, the Monkey and the Lion (you can also make a tiger of this one). So it was hard to choose haha. This time I made the Zebra and the Monkey. Ofcourse the Lion and Giraffe will be used another time.

The animals are also coloured with Distress Ink. Oh and I forgot to say that I’m using Soft Finish Cardstock for this whole project. It’s such a great paper, smooth on one side and a little structure on the other. You can choose which side is the best for your project. When I work with Distress Ink I always color on the structured side.

So back to the project. When I’m making animals like the Zebra and Monkey I back my cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape before die-cutting for the parts that need to be glued otherwise. So in this case the stripes, eyes and feet from the Zebra. I also give the Zebra a hat from the Safari accessories, doesn’t he look cute?

Than the monkey who is hanging at the vine in the corner. I really like to build this animals. You can give them every colour you want. The monkey is coloured with Ground Espresso, Vintage Photo, Tea Dye, Black Soot en Fossilized Amber. The monkey is hanging at the vine, but you can also make him sit.

In de left corner I put the text ‘I love you just the way you are’ that I stamped on the Soft Finish Cardstock. The edges are coloured with Forest Moss and Black Soot. I coloured the whole card also with Black Soot and put some black Cardstock behind. So my Safari card is done.

I hope this card gives you some ideas to play with this great collection. For me it was a lot of fun playing with it. Thank you for reading this blogpost! Have a wonderful day and hopefully see you soon!
