Joset Designs Planner Essentials

You’re so cute!

August 28, 2021

Today I made this cute whale that I combined with the lovely papers from Modacrap. I love the paperpads. They are so cute and colorfull. And collerfull is what I love!

For this card I used a slimline die. This die is from the new Planner Essentials set 41 – Rounded Corners Page. At first take this part of the die and your basepaper. In this case I took the paper with the whales in blue and red. The frame is also from the same set. The frame I made only in the soft finish cardstock because the background is already so colorfull.

On the back of the frame you can make two squares in different colors. For these squares I used papers with a bit of a calmer print as I’m planning to add the whale on one squares and a text on the other.

Than I took some brown cardstock on the back of my base slimline. I added some jute twine between the background paper and my cardstock. I left the jute a bit longer than my background so it would stick out on both end. You can make the frame stick out on the right side as well for a playful effect.

And then comes my favorite part of the card! A cute die from the collection of Joset. This time I choose the whale. He is so cute and matches so pretty with the paper. The whale I collered with Distress Ink. I used weathered wood for his body, stormy sky for the water splashes and fired brick for the mouth of the whale. I adhered the whale to the left square.

On the right side I made the word whale with the letter dies blackboard alphabet. This is one of my favorite dies. You can combine it with so much dies on so many creations.

Finally I added some decoration. In the corner a steering wheel and lifebuoy. These are parts from the Whale and the Octopus sets. On the right side of the frame are two holes, here I added some jute twine. It mached with the colors of the card.

I had fun creating this card and hopefully I inspired you to make your own version!

Little Chocolate Cow

June 29, 2021

When you love chocolate, you need to make the very famous cow! This time I made the cow with felted wool, love the texture of this! At first I cut out all the pieces from the felt in different colors like white, purple and light pink. I didn’t have the color brown that I wanted to use for the feet so I decided to use Ground Expresso Distress Ink to color the white felt brown. On the back site I used double sided adhesive. Then it’s super easy to assemble your cow.

For the background I used Lindy’s Magicals. This is a powder with a lot of pigments. I used the colors Prima Donna Purple and Cattail Copper Brown. When you spray with water you have a lot of colors! Of course I wanted to have purple on the background, because that’s the color of the cow. I also added a little bit of brown to match with the chocolate.

For a simple effect on the background I used a mask from the stencil pack S041 together with expanding mouse (worn linnen). When you heat the expanding mouse it gives a really great effect!

Then I made a chocolate bar. First I cut a piece of White Soft Finisch Cardstock 9 x 6 cm. for the bar and colored this piece with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I added 6 little squares measuring 2.1 x 2.1 cm that I colored with the same ink. It is so easy to make a paper chocolate bar. Wish it was that easy to make a real one 😉

And of course I had to use some Silk Microfine Glitter on this card! This time I used the stain die from the 1848 Puzzle page. It looks like spots on a cow. I first cut the stain pieces from white cardstock with clear double sided adhesive on top. I then remove the top sheet of the adhesive and colored the exposed adhesive with 661 Violet Silk Microfine Glitter. I then added the spots on the background piece of the card.

For the bottom of the chocolate bar I used a piece of paper in purple with white dots. This paper I used later on the background of the hole card. I also cut a banner (fitted fishtails 1694) from White Soft Finish Cardstock and stamped the sentiment “Cow’s it going?” from the farm collection (life it better on the farm CS221). This time I used embossing powder for the stamps. The background color is also distress ink Vintage Photo.

Hope you like it and see you all soon!!

Glitter Princess

May 22, 2021

Hello every one! Today I make a slimline card with a cute little glitter princess. The Silk Microfine Glitter is a product that I used a lote in my creation, so also with this one.

At first is cut out a slimline card. One large and one a bite smaller. In the smaller one I made 3 squares. Used the 1698 stitched indented squares. On the picture I show on what sizes I cute out the squares. Hight of the card 20.5 cm. Each square is 4.5 cm. On the top and bottom 2 cm and between the 3 sqaures 1.5 cm. On the side of the sqaures 2 cm.

When you cute out the squares it look like this:

After that I made 3 blocks whit foam tape on the large slimline. The foam tape must fit behind the squares from the second slimline. In the blocks I put some sequin mix from 28 Lilac Lane. One the top of the blocks made a transparent sheet. So than you have 3 blocks whit shaker material. of course I choose purple and pink because I love that colors.

The second slimline I sprayed with distress oxide (kitsch flamingo, blueprint sketch). Sprayes from a little distrance. Than you have only splashes and not the hole background in the color.

After that you can glue the second slimline on top of the first. I used clear double sided adhesive. Because this is very strong on the trasparent sheet.

On top of the card a made a cute little princess with die 1790 (princess) and some details with 1798 (princess crown). The dress of the pricess used silk microfine glitter 656 Speckled Indigo. Love that color of course it is pink and purple. The details (crown, stars, letters) also used silk micofine glitter (619 fuchsia, 638 solar gold). The rest of the princess I colorize with distress ink ( blueprint sketch, picked raspberry, black soot, vintage photo, tattered rose). Details on the princess made with craft drops (cdm01 – metallic gold)

I put the princess in the middle of the slimline card. Under her feets the curl from the 1798 princess crown set. The rest of the details you can put them where you like them. In the coners of the card I made some pearls whit the craft drops.

I hope I inspire you to make a creation by yourself whit a lot of glitter and color!

Lovely greetz!

Hen en Rooster at the Farm

April 29, 2021

Hello everyone! Today is my first blog for the Elizabeth Design team. I hope I can inspire you to make a lot of creations with the beautiful dies that I used.

For this card I used the barn die that I cut out of the beautiful Worn Wood paper. For the wondows, doors and roof I used cardstock. To create the plant in de window I used the hay die also included in the Barn set. I cut the plant (hay) from Whute Soft Finish Cardstock and colored it with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. For the background I used a mask stencil to create the clouds and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks Oxide to color.

I cut and colored two more pieces of hay to add on each side of the barn and added little flowers from the Adventure Edges #1625 set. I colored the flowers with Wilted Violet, Fossilized Amber and Wild Honey Distress Ink. I love using the little flowers, they are so cute!

I made a frame with the Stitched Indented Rectangels #1697. I used the biggest die in the set and one size smaller. Lay them together on the paper and cut theme together. I adhered the frame using foam tape to create more dimension in the card.

After that, I colered the little cute hen and rooster. I also used Distress Inks for this (antique linnen, brushed corduroy, fossilized amber, fired brick, rusty hinge, mermaid lagoon, rustic wilderness). They are so cute in front of the barn. I also used foam tape to adhere them to the card so it looks like they are standign in front of the barn. Above the barn doors I added the sentiment “just chicken in” using black ink. The stamp is from thw “Life is better in the farm” set #CS221.

At last I wanted to decorating the top of the frame. For this I used the Jungle Leaves #1623. On the top of it I used some flowers from Floral 9 #1845. In the middle of the flowers I added the same little flowers from the Adventure Edges set.

At last I glue everything on a fitting card.

So this was my first blog and I hope it inspired you to make your own creation with the lovely farm dies!

Hopefully see you soon!

Lovely greetings Alice
