Just Chicken In

April 9, 2021

Karen here today sharing a card I made with the totally FUN new “Life is Better on the Farm” collection by Joset. This new collection is SO good.

This card is so simple and yet so fun. I used the new Hen & Rooster Die for the two animals. Below, I’ll list out the Copic markers I used to color them. The card is made by cutting a 8-1/2″x11″ piece of 90 lb Soft-Finish cardstock in half lengthwise and folding it in half. The cardfront is cut with a Stitched Indented Rectangle. The blue pattern cardstock was cut into squares that are 2-1/4″ adhered to yellow squares at 2-1/2″. The sentiment is also new from the Life is Better on the Farm Stamps. I added a few half-pearls for interest.

The “white” chicken was colored with a Copic C1, R27, and YR12/14. The Rooster above was colored with the following Copic markers:

  • Feet and Beak: YR12, YR14
  • Body: Y35, Y38
  • Wings: E41, E43
  • Comb and Waddle: R27, R29
  • Tail Feathers: Y15, Y18, G12, G16, BG53, BG57

Thanks for checking out my card today.

Craftily yours, Karen

Clean and simple cards with basic fitted dies

April 7, 2021

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again today with another card tutorial share. Today I wanted to show you how you can use the basic fitted/nesting dies to create colorful, yet simple, card backgrounds in just a few simple steps.

You only need a selection of basic fitted dies (for exampe rectangles, stars, hexacons or squares), a stamp set and a selection of colored cardstock. I chose to do a more monochromatic pattern on the above cards, but you could do more variation by picking all colours of the rainbow for a background. Here is how these cards were done:

Step 1: Pick three colours of cardstock in similar tones (I used grey, teal and blue tones). Then pick three of the smaller sized nesting Stitched Rectangles and die cut two pieces each with the smaller dies from the cardstock and one bigger sized piece.

Step 2: Arrange the pieces onto a card base and adhere them on place with Clear Double Sided Tape. Flip the card over and cut any excess pieces with scissors.

Step 3: Take a piece of black cardstock and stamp a sentiment with the “Build Your Own Sentiment 1” stamp set using embossing ink and fine white embossing powder. Heat set the powder with a heat tool and adhere the sentiment onto the card with 3D foam pads. For additional detail you can add some embossed stars around the sentiment and a few Craft Drops, if you want to.

Here are some variations on you can do using other fitted dies – I used the Stitched Hexacons and Stitched Stars:

As you can see, by changing the color combination and the dies or the sentiments, you can create cards for various occations using the same basic idea!

I´ve also recorded the steps for you, so you get a better idea of each and every step:

I hope I could inspire you to make some fun card backgrounds with your nesting dies!! See you again next month with another card idea!!

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna

Birthday Candles Mini Slimline Card

April 5, 2021

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Lately my favourite sized card is the Mini Slimline. I wanted to show that most background dies that were made for A2 size can work to create Mini Slimline size. This will definitely if there is a repeating pattern like the Kaleidoscope Background die. Below you will find the steps to create your own Birthday Candles Card.

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

Step 2 – Diecut Kaleidoscope Background using White Light Weight Cardstock to use as a stencil. Place it on top of White Soft Finish Cardstock trimmed to 3 1/4” x 5 3/4” in the center. Using a Blender Brush apply any ink of your choice. I used Distress Oxide Black Soot. Remove the stencil and align it to the top finding the repeating pattern. Repeat this step for the bottom layer of the panel. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. See photo below.

Step 3 – Diecut Birthday Candles using various colors of Cardstock. I used yellow for all my bases and used colors of the rainbow for the top with patterns. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green and Blue and Black for the Candle Holder. Assemble using tweezers and Kids Choice Glue. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 4 – Stamp Sentiments 1 – Celebration using Versamark on Black Cardstock. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a heat tool. Diecut Sentiments 1 – Celebration using a scrap piece of Cardstock. Place the stamped sentiment underneath the diecut and place the die inside until it locks into place. Place a piece of Purple Tape and pass it through your Diecut Machine. Adhere to card front using Kids Choice Glue.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and will look how your stamps and dies meant for A2 can be used for Mini Slimline cards. Below you will find a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Cards in candy colours

March 7, 2021

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here again today with another guest design team project share. For a couple of days we´ve had beautiful sunshiny weather here in Austria and I am very much in spring mood already. Thus, a set of easy-to-do, candy coloured cards is my project share for today.

The first card is very simple to do, but due to the used dies, still creates a lovely layered and detailed look.

Here are the steps for this card:

Step 1: Take a piece of each (yellow, light blue, grey, pink and light green) Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut one piece of the Junk Journal Extras dies in each colour.

Step 2: Now take the smaller flower dies from the Tropical Florals die set and die cut the flower with pink, yellow and grey Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step 3: Next adhere the die cut pieces onto a white card base overlappingly and arrange the flower to the upper left corner for decoration.

Step 4: Finally, take a piece of kraft carstock and heat emboss a sentiment with white embossing powder using one of the sentiment in the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 set. For additional decor, add a few craft drops next to the sentiment.

For the second card, you will additionally need a few stamp inks to create the background, but other than that, we are sticking to the same Tropical Flowers die set and the candy coloured cardstock selection.

Here are the steps to this card:

Step 1: Die cut a strip of paper with the Adventure Edges die and create a cloud background to a white card base with it by applying yellow and light pink ink using the die cut border as a stencil.

Step 2: After that apply some ink droplets with the light pink tone onto the background for a fun additional detail. Use a paint brush or a water tank brush for this purpose.


Step 3: Die cut two leaves and one flower with the Tropical Flowers die set from the same Soft Finish Cardstock tones used on the first card.

Step 4: Arrange the leaves and the flower onto the right lower corner of the card and adhere on place. Then add a stamped sentiment with black stamp ink and the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set.

Step 5: For finishing touches add a few Craft Drops to the background.

Also if you are not into pastel tones, feel free to try out this set in primary colours or in more neutral tones. Changing the cardstock colours will give you a totally different look!

I hope you enjoyed today´s card ideas and got inspired to play yourself! Have a great time crafting and see you again next month!
xxx, Sanna
