I am here for you

May 26, 2021

Hii All! It’s me again, Lisanne! This time I want to share a card who has to cheer up my dad. It is a small project, but small isn’t always bad!

A while ago I made a planner page with the Sidekick Essentials 13 (hexagon insert). All the little hexagons that fell out I safed in a box for using it later. This was the time to using is haha. So I glued some hexagons on my base, which is dies 1698. There are a lot of different sizes squares in it.

The whole background is paper from the Reminiscene Book 2. You can see I made three spots with hexagons in different sizes. These hexagons made me think about some honeycomb. So I made the Honey Bear (1727) with ofcourse honey.

Let’s take a closer look to the Honey Bear. I used the Soft Finish Cardstock so I can colour the bear with Distress Ink. You can choose to give the bear a bow or not. The bow is an accessories which I add later because at the end I missed some extra colour. This bow gives that colour I think. I made some highlights with some pens.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is I-am-here-for-you-8-969x1024.png

After the bear I want to make a beehive. So I dies the honey jar and turn this upside down. I put a little cord behind the hive and knotted this at the branch. This branch is a part of the tree from the Safari Colleciton.I really love this look! Ofcourse there are some bees at the hive.

At least I made a banner with the build your own sentiments stamp (cs139) and put this whole card at a brown card.

I hope I gave you some inspiration with this card. Thanks for taking a look at this post! And hopefully I see you soon!

Kind regards Lisanne

The Fisherman

April 28, 2021

Hi All! Lisanne here again. I think a lot of you have dies from Joset’s collections. For this card I used a lot of different ones as I love mixing and matching them. I had so much fun creating this card!

Let me tell you how I created this card…

I started with the base. I cut one large stitched square using the Stitched Square (1698) die and colored it with Tumbled Glass and Tea Dye Distress Ink. This gives a picture of land and sky. For the sky I used a mask stencil from the Art Journal Special (SO39). This mask looks like waves, but I used this for clouds.

Than the funniest part of the whole card. Die cut, color and assemble all the pieces. I used Soft Finish Cardstock for this and colored with Diustress Inks. I made some bushes with the Forest Accessories (1688). At these bushes there are growing some flowers. Isn’t this looks cute?

The Fisherman stands in front of the bushes. He is very busy with fishing. The Fisherman is made from the Farmer dies and the Safari Accessories. The fishing rod is a die from the Camping Accessories. And at least the water pool is the mud pool from the Pig.

All the dies I colored with the Distress Ink. Below I will write all the used products. So for now I will thank you all for reading! See you soon!

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!

Joset Designs Sidekick Essentials

Fave moment

February 24, 2021

Hi Crafters! Lisanne here. I’m here again with a new blog post. This time I made a Sidekick Planner page with the cute Honey Bear.

For the base I used the Sidekick Essentials 4 and the Reminiscene Paper pad. On this page I glued the Honey page (Sidekick Essentials 13). I colored all the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

So first I made this cute Honey Bear with the Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink. I used Ground Espresso and Vintage Photo and Gathered Twigs for the bear. The honey jar is made with Brushed Corduroy and Fossilized Amber. I also colored the little bee by myself with Distress Ink (Fossilized Amber and Black Soot).

I adhered the bear to a tag from the Sidekick Essentials 11. I like the little stitch line at the tag. I also made a little tag with the sentence “Fave Moment” from CS120. Behind pink design paper I put a little piece of the Journal Edges from the Art Journal Special. It is just a little piece but it looks great!

In the right corner I used the Jungle Leaves with some flowers. I did the same with the left page, so I wanted to do the same at the right page. The large flower is from Florals 8 and the little flowers from Florals 1. This time I cut them out design paper. The leave is colord with Crushed Olive. These flowers makes me so happy!

I put a sequin in the center of the large flowers and added some reinforcers. These kind of pages are so great to make! Like all the cute characters but also the planner dies.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post as much I enjoyed creating this page. Thank you so much for reading this post and have a great day!

Oh happy day!

January 27, 2021

Hi crafters! Lisanne here. So today is my very first blogpost for the Elizabeth Craft Designs Blog and I’m so excited to share my projects with all of you! Today I want to share this planner page in my Ground Espresso Sidekick planner. For this page I used a lot of different ECD dies. They are so great to use together! I will explain a little bit more below how I created this page.

For the base I used the Sidekick Essentials 2 and I used the Reminscene paperpad COO2. This paper is so lovely with these stamps at the background.

The tag with the flower girl is from the Planner Essentials 30 Wave Pocket and the paper I used is from the Reminiscene book. For the bushes I used Adventure Edges 2. The cute little flowers which I cut from the Reminiscene Book are part of the Adventure Edges 2 as well. Now you can see that the Holiday Elf Her is turned into a flower girl! I realy like this way of using dies. At the back of the tag I put some pieces from the Planner Essentials 21 Note Pieces.

When I adhered the tag on the page I put them behind a little piece from the Note Pieces. You can also see that piece with the text Oh happy day! This stamp is from the Pieces of Life 4. I also used the cute Flower reinforcers.

Thank you so much for reading this blogpost and I hope that I inspired you a little bit today to works with these fun dies!

Have a happy day!
