Hello everyone. Jackie here with today’s blog post. I have made a snowy mountain scene with the cream top part of the Warm Winter Mug set 1996 complete with marshmallow boulders, I do love to play around with the dies. Before we start, whilst making this card I changed the way I added the sentiment so a couple of the photos will not show the sentiment on.

Step One:

Ink Blend the front of an A6 Europe or A2 U.S top folding card blank. Here I used Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry.

Step Two:

Create two snowbanks from white card, trim a panel to fit the card front then fussy cut a curvy edge to both pieces. Heat emboss the sentiment onto the front snowbank then attach both panels using foam pads.

Step Three:

Die cut three mountains and three mountain peaks. Ink the top of the mountain peak with a little of the Picked Raspberry ink then adhere them in place between the snowbanks.

Step Four:

Add three die cut snowflakes. I have chosen to hang them over the edges, but you could add them wherever you wish.

Step Five:

Finish off by adding the marshmallow boulders and sequins and gems.

I hope you enjoyed todays blog and have been inspired to look at your dies in a different way.

until next time, happy crafting – Jackie xx

Holiday Treats

November 21, 2022

Hello. Jackie here with today inspiration. I was playing with the new Warm Winter Mug die set and thought hmmmm I wonder if I could make a cupcake! and what do you know it works perfectly.

Step One

Die cut the solid mug part first, you do not need to cut the whole mug as we will only need the bottom half. Trim the handle off.

Step Two.

Lay the two fancy dies on to the solid cut piece, lift off the bottom die then run this though a die cutting machine creating the base for the cupcake. Die cut the fancy piece again into coloured card then glue on top.

Step Three.

Draw and fussy cut out a cake shape as shown in the photo, this will not need to be perfect as you will only see a small amount. Glue the cake in place behind the cup case then the cream on top.

Step Four.

Next, create the striped pattern directly on to an A2 top folding card blank. Trim a hand fall of pink striped patterned paper then starting at one diagonal end glue the first piece in place. cut a 1cm strip of card to act as a template to achieve the correct spacing, continue to glue the thin strips in place until the front is covered then cut off all the overhanging pieces. Repeat this step again only using thinner silver glittered card strips.

Step Five.

Use a stitched rectangle die to cut a small layer. cut this into both coloured card and vellum then attach the two together with a small piece of double-sided tape in the centre. Fix in place on the card front using 1mm foam pads.

Step Six.

Decorate the top of the cup cake with various goodies then attach to the card front using more 3d foam pads. finish off by adding a little bit of sparkle here and there along with the sentiment.

I really love the way you can create different things form Joset’s dies. I hope I have inspired you to have a go at making this cupcake card.

Happy crafting Jackie x

Pop Up Aga Card

November 4, 2022

Hello everyone Jackie here today. I thought I would do a tutorial on the pop up aga card as it did seem to be quite popular. I have included quite a lot of steps in hope that you can understand the process, so let’s get started.

Step One:

Die cut four cooker pieces and glue two pieces together. trim the other two die cuts at the embossed line shown on the photo below and glue the two smaller leg parts together. Doubling up like this makes the end project most sturdy.

Step Two:

Trim a panel measuring 10.5 x 2″ then score at 1/2, 3.5, 5.5, and 8.5. as shown in the photo below.

Step Three:

Fold up the panel at the score lines and glue at the 1/2 ” tab to create a square shape.

Step Four:

Die cut the tiled back piece into white card then again into black card. fussy cut out the tiles from the black piece and glue onto the white tiled panel.

Step Five:

Trim another blue panel measuring 4 x 3″ glue the black and white tiled piece to one end then fix the other end inside the prepared cooker base.

Step Six:

Next create the inner sections. Trim two strips of blue card approximately 5 x 1″ then fold each end at approximately 1/2″ in the opposite directions creating a Z shape. Tip: you will need to try the strip up against the cooker base to see if it fits correctly. Once the Z strips are in place fold the cooker base in each direction to make sure it folds flat easily.

Step Seven:

Glue the cooker front in place followed by the back legs, wiggle these in place whilst the glue is still wet.

Step Eight:

To make the cooker hobs, die cut four of the snow Christmas tree parts from the die set – sweater season 1997.

Step Nine:

Die cut the Santa sack from die set 1990 Santa Clause, die cut two of the sack handles and one sack, ink the pieces up with brown ink then build into a turkey shape as shown in the photo. Fix a tiny Z of folded card the very bottom of the turkey and use this to attach the turkey to the cooker.

Step Ten:

Glue all the remaining pieces in place, here you can add whatever you like from the other sets. I have added the cake from set – let’s bake 1994.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that I have inspired you to have a go at making a 3d Aga, you could also use this technic with other dies in the ECD collection.

Happy crafting – Jackie x

Merry little baker

October 18, 2022

Hey there. Jackie here today with my first Christmas themed blog post of the year! These brand-new baking themed die sets are so adorable and what’s more they are not just for Christmas!! I can see these being really useful all year round.

Step One:

Start with a 5.25×5.25″ top folding card blank, blend some ink in the centre using squeezed lemonade distress oxide and an ink blending tool. Then mark out a gridded pattern over the top using the tile die and a black thin line marker pen. Leave a few of the outer square’s half lined.

Step Two:

Colour in the tiles using a yellow pen. You don’t have to be too careful here, colouring quite rough will add texture.

Step Three:

Ink around the edges of the die cut table using brown ink and attach to the card front toward the right-hand side.

Step Four:

Die cut the cake and add a line of jam before adding the icing top. Create the tiny Christmas tree by die cutting the larger tree then fussy cutting the two corners off as shown in the photo. glue these together then add a tiny die cut cookie for the tree trunk.

Step Five:

Die cut and build the baker girl along with a bowl of red jam.

Step Six:

Fix all the die cuts in place, add a thin black line all around the card edge then finish off with a white heat embossed sentiment.

I hope you have enjoyed my first Christmas blog post, I really had fun with these baking/Christmas die sets. Happy Christmas crafting – Jackie x

Autumn leaves

October 3, 2022

Hello all Jackie here. Today I have created something a little different! Sometimes the smallest dies we get in a die set can get overlooked, I have used just the leaves from die set – Turkey 1905 to make my own chip board pieces which give this design a lot of texture. Let’s get started.

Step One:

Cover the front of an A2 top folding card blank with dark brown textured card.

Step Two:

Die cut the leaves into various autumnal shades of coloured card. Die cut enough to stack four of the same leaf together gluing each leaf as you go, this will create a solid chip board like piece.

Step Three:

Ink around the edge of each leaf, I have used distress inks but whatever you have in your stash will work just as well.

Step Four:

Cut a panel of white card to 5.5″x3″ arrange all the leaves onto the panel, then when you are happy with the lay out glue each one in place. Trim the overhanging leaves with a craft knife and ruler as they are a bit too tough for scissors. – If you do not have a craft knife then trim the leaves before gluing them together.

Step Five:

Die cut the scalloped edge from the planner set – Planner Essentials 27 Retro Number Trio. I know it’s not really an edge die but I love the look of this scallop. Trim the scallop edge to fit the panel.

Cut a strip of gold foil card then glue this to the reverse side of the prepared leaf panel leaving approximately 1/8″ showing at the side then fix the scalloped edge underneath.

Step Six:

Tear a small strip of vellum measuring 5/8″ then trim both ends to measure 3″ across. Stamp out and gold emboss the sentiment on to a strip of dark brown card measuring approximately 4″x1/2″ fold this around the piece of vellum and fix in place with double sided tape.

Step Seven:

Attach the leaf panel to the card front using 3d foam pads then finish off by fixing the sentiment in place.

Thats my card for today. Although I do love to stack die cuts you could just cut the leaves once and use foam pads to raise them up or even fix them flat to the panel, whichever way I hope I have inspired you to look through your dies and see what you can do with the smallest ones.

Happy crafting – Jackie

Pumpkin Patch

September 20, 2022

Hello everyone, Jackie here again with today’s post. As Autumn is just around the corner I though I would make this cute pumpkin card using of course pumpkins and the gnome die sets. This would make a lovely piece of happy mail to let your friends know how just special they are.

Step One:

You will need an A2 card blank for this card, so start by trimming a white card panel down to 5.25×4″ to fit slightly smaller than the card blank. Ink the brown earth and blue sky using distress inks, I have chosen to use finger daubers but you could easily switch to normal daubers if you have those.

Step Two

Next create the green bush, Again I used a finger dauber but this time I just daubed in the one place and twisted slightly to make an inked circle, carry on making the circles until it looks bush like.

Step Three

Add the sentiment over the brown earth. Use a stamping platform to ink a few times for a nice solid impression.

Step Four

Die cut two large pumpkins and two smaller pumpkins then ink around the edges for added dimension. Cut storks and tendrils for three of them. Ensure one of the smaller pumpkins is made upside down for the hat – as shown in the photo below.

Step Five

Build the gnome parts shown in the photo below, cut the hair from the lady gnome pig tails. Add white stripes to the arms using a white gel pen.

Step Six

Add the pumpkin pieces to the gnome to finish the gnome off.

Step Seven

Add the pumpkins to the card blank with a dab of glue then use 3d foam pad to attach the pumpkin gnome. And now your card is ready.

Hope you enjoyed following along with this cute pumpkin patch gnome card. I had a lot of fun creating this card. See you next time!

Gnome Sweet Gnome

September 5, 2022

Hello all. Jackie here today with a little Halloween/Autumn card using the mushroom house die set 1796. I have made the wizardy gnome able to stand forward from the house and still be able to fold flat for posting.

Step one:

Die cut and build the wizard as normal then use a white gel pen to add the jagged line, then add the broom from die set – witch 1906 slightly bend the fingers around the boom.

Step two:

Next die cut and build the mushroom house, add extra yellow paper behind the windows to give the effect of a light on.

Step three:

I added pumpkins from die set – hay ride 1909

Step four:

To attach the wizard. Make a small Z shape from strong cardstock then glue one end to the house wherever you want your wizard to stand.

Step five:

Glue the wizard to the Z piece ensuring he stands on the floor when the card is stood upright. You can wiggle him in place whilst the glue is still wet.

This Z fold piece could work for a number of different designs creating a fun 3d look that folds flat. I hope I have inspired you to have a go – Happy crafting Jackie x

Bee-utiful buzy bee

August 24, 2022

Hi everyone, Jackie here today with a monster mash up! I have used all three monster die set’s to create this super Bee-utiful buzy bee card.

Step One:

First create the background using the hexagon stencil and yellow ink, gently ink through the stencil with a sponge dauber leaving a small amount of white around the edges.

Step Two:

Next build the bee. I have listed which die’s you will need but you can change any for what you have in your stash. Ink around the yellow parts with dark yellow ink.

Head – Monster 3

Legs, Arms and Eyes – Monster 1

Wings and Body – Monster 2

Antenna – Party Time

For the bee body, use the largest body die from Monster 2 to draw around and fussy cut out (I did not want the circular pattern embossed onto the piece) use the same die to draw around again this time into black card then trim three bands as shown in the photo.

Step Three:

Die cut the antenna twice then add some glossy accents or clear 3d glue then once dry fix to the bees head.

Step Four:

Die cut a a stitched rectangle and layer onto a top folding A2 card blank using 3d foam pads. Next die cut a gold frame. Lay two hexagon dies one inside the other then secure together with a small piece of washi tape.

Step Five:

Stamp out and white heat emboss the sentiment onto black card then trim down and fix in place on the card front using 3d foam pads, add a few gold gems to finish.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you have been inspired to have a go at creating a new creature from these fabulous monster die’s. Until next time happy creating – Jackie x

Make a wish

August 8, 2022

Hello everyone, Jackie here with todays blog post. Today I have made a card using the cake element from the new die set Party Time 1978, although you could easily add any die cut element to this simple background.

Step One:

First create the background. Take an acrylic block of any size and swipe ink across it in a striped pattern, spritz some water on to the block then stamp this onto a panel of card stock cut slightly smaller than A2. I used distress oxide ink squeeze lemonade for this step. Once dry add a few splashes of watered down black paint.

Step Two:

Take an A2 top folding card blank and use the squeezed lemonade and ink all the way around the edges then splash some water on top. Rough up the panel edges before attaching the panel to the front.

Step Three:

Die all cut the cake elements but before fixing them together add a line of white craft drops to each piece of cake, once dry add the pink icing tops using foam pads and arrange all the pieces on the card front keeping them slightly separate and wonky for a quirky look.

Step Four:

Stamp out the sentiment using black ink then finish off the design with a few stars both die cut and sequin.

This is a nice quick card if you need an idea in a hurry. You can add a number of different toppers to the background for whatever occasion you need.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you to have a go.

Happy crafting – Jackie

Monster grad

July 20, 2022

Hi everyone it’s Jackie back again today. Recently my son graduated from university so I just had to use the new monster die’s from Joset to create his celebration card, this design has a little bit of hand drawn fussy cutting however you can leave the mortarboard off then this would be suitable for any celebration.

Step One:

Start by die cutting a whole load of confetti pieces using the die set – party time shapes 1978. Glue all the shapes on to the front of a top folding card blank measuring 5.25 x 5.25″

Step Two:

Cut out a circle of white card measuring approximately 4″ ink the centre in a circular shape (I used a acetate template I made from a smaller die) stamp out the sentiment towards the edge then add a couple of lines using a black pen. Fix in place using 3d foam pads.

Step Three:

Draw and fussy cut all the pieces for the mortarboard, I didn’t worry to much about being accurate with the diamond shape however you may have a die that would work for this step.

Roll the tiny fringe piece and glue it to the end of the thin strip, punch a tiny hole into the centre of the diamond piece and thread the tassel end though and glue in place, fussy cut a half moon shape then attach the two together with a couple of 3d foam pads. see photo in step 4.

Step Four:

Die cut and build the monster in which ever colour way you like. Attach the mortarboard then fix him in place using more 3d foam pads.

Step Five:

Next create the bubbly and glass, both of these die’s come in the same set – party time shapes 1978.

Die cut the bottle into green card then again into gold card fussy cutting the gold top part, cut a small white label and add a tiny message. Cut the glass into acetate then add gold fine glitter to the reverse side to resemble bubbles.

Thank you for stopping by today.. I hope I have inspired you to make a monster celebration card.

Happy crafting Jackie x
