Mini Slimline Happy Halloween Card

September 6, 2021

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I have a spooktacular card to share with you using the Scarecrow die. I just love how it glows against my background. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7” x 6”, score at 3 1/2” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 3 1/2” x 6”. Apply ink of your choice. I used Distress Oxide in Wlted Violet, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot. Splash some water and wait 15 seconds and then place a Paper Towel on top to absorb with water. Let dry then adhere the panel to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Diecut Halloween Scenery using Black Cardstock. Stamp Spooky Sentiment using Versamark. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a Heat Tool. (Both Halloween Scenery and Spooky Sentiment is discontinued so this will apply to anyone who already has it in their stash. Also I did some masking to only have the Happy Halloween, simply place Washi tape on top of the areas you don’t want to stamp, ink it up then before stamping remove the Washi tape). Adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 4 – Diecut Scarecrow using various colors of cardstock. I added some shading to the pumpkin head and arms using Distress Oxide Ripe Persimmon and Black Soot to the clothing. Assemble using Kids Choice Blue and adhere it to the card using Foam Tape.

The Scarecrow is a fun die and can be used on Tags, cards and other projects. Below is a link to the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting.

Sparkly Slimline Christmas cards

September 4, 2021

Hello everyone and happy Saturday! It´s Sanna Lippert here again today with my September guest design team card project share. Who does not love some sparkle in their holiday cards? Well I sure do! Thus, for today´s project I used the gorgeous new Holiday dies by Joset and created two cards. Here they are:

Here is how I created the card(s):

Step 1: Take the slimline background die and die cut a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive with it. Then remove the negative pieces.

Step 2: Next die cut a second – plain piece – of Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet in the same size like the slimline background die.

Step 3: Take a slimline card base and adhere the solid adhesive piece onto the card and carefully remove the protective layer without touching it with your fingers.

Step 4: Now place the die cut background adhesive piece on top of the first layer of adhesive, but leave the protective cover on for now.

Step 5: Pick three colours of blue-toned Silk Microfine Glitter and pour them onto the adhesive areas creating an ombré look with the colours. Wipe any residue off with a brush and polish the layer with your finger.

Step 6: Now remove the slimline background die cut piece´s protective cover and pour Silverado Silk Microfine Glitter onto the adhesive areas. Again remove any residue glitter with a brush and then polish the layer with your finger. Also save the protective cover pieces for later – you will need the for the second card.

Step 7: Stamp a sentiment onto a whipe piece of paper with two blue tones of Distress Oxide inks and then die cut it using the Fitted Circles die cut dies. Decorate with inked banners if you want. For finishing touches add a few Craft Drops to the card.

Now use the leftover protective cover from the slimline background die to create a fun, second card.

Here are the steps you need to do:

Step 1: Ink a slimline card base using two light shades of Distress Oxide blues. Then place the protective cover leftover piece on top of the inked card. Use painters tape or washi tape to hold the pieces on place while inking. Then add a darker blue shade of Distress Oxide thru the DIY stencil.

Step 2: Die cut snowflakes from a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet and adhere them onto the inked slimline card base. Pour Pewter Silk Microfine Glitter onto the adhesive stars and polish into place. Then stamp a stentiment onto carstock and die cut with banners if you want to. Adhere on place. Decorate the edges with “faux stitching” using a white gel pen. How fast and easy you can make this second card from leftover pieces of the first one!

Here are some close-ups of the finished cards. If you want to purchase the here featured Christmas special die and stamp kit, ask your local craft store or wait until it will be available at the online store. I truly adore this kit and cannot wait to create more Holiday cards with it!

I hope you enjoyed this card set tutorial! See you again next month with another card idea.
xxx, Sanna

Tis the Season

August 25, 2021

Karen here today. Tis the season for me to finally get started on making some holiday cards. I usually make more than 100 and get started much sooner, but better later than never, right? Today’s batch uses the same basic card sketch. I used a few of Joset’s “critters” to create some fun cards.

I started by cutting that beautiful patterned paper at 3-3/4×5″ and a solid background for it at 4×5-1/4″. The ovals are cut using 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock with the Stitched Ovals. The sentiment is from the Classic Christmas Sentiments Set. Once I got these pieces done, the rest was just pure fun.

I used 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock and black cardstock for the Penguin. The hat is from the Santa die (red is Copic R35), the nose and feet are colored with YR14. As usual, I used 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to make putting together the critter easier.

The Sheep is also wearing Santa’s hat. (Why not, right?) He is colored using Vintage Photo and Tea Dye Distress inks and a Copic R34 and W7.

Last and never least is Santa! I colored him with Copic W7, R27 and Y000 (for the skin). He’s so cute.

Well, Ho Ho Ho, that’s it for me today. Thank you for stopping by!

Craftily yours, Karen
