Joset Designs Soft Finish Cardstock


October 14, 2021

Hi all, It’s Lisanne here! Welcome to my blopost today. It feels like it’s been a while since I last shared a project with you. Last week I saw a picture that reminded me that is it 75 days until Christmas. I can’t wait hihi.

So for this post I made a winter card (looks like Christmas).

For the base I used the Stitched Indented Rectangle. I cut the largest rectangle from the 240 gr. Soft Finish Cardstock. One piece smaller is from the 300 gr. Soft Finish Cardstock. Why I use two different weights is because I wanted to make a background with the Distress Mica Spray (Frosted Juniper and Snow Flurries) and this works better on the 300 gr. After using the Mica Spray I added some Distress Icicle crackle paste (this has to dry a long time).

While my background was drying, I created Jack Frost the snowman. The snowman is one of my favorite dies I think. I used the 240 gr. Soft Finish Cardstock for all my characters and accessories. I colored Jack with Distress Ink. Than I made a tree, which is a die from the Mason Jar, who is standing next to Jack.

I thought the background was just a little bit blank so I die cut the beautiful doily from the Art Journal Special, put some embossing powder at the top and adhered this at the background. Because the background is not smooth, I adhered everyting with glossy accents so everything stays in place.

For the snow boarder at the bottom I used the Winter Edges from the Art Journal Special. The word ‘Frosty’ is perfect for this card.

So this is my winter card for today. I hope you feel inspired to make your own frosty card! Thank you for following me along and perhaps chat soon in a Facebook Live!

Greetings Lisanne

Fall Fun

October 11, 2021

Karen here today. I’ve been having fun with the new Happy Harvest collection. For today’s cards, I tried to make cards with non-Fall colors just to see how it would turn out, and I really love it. The paper is from a collection that has been in my stash forever.

Omigosh, how cute is this Scarecrow! I absolutely adore him! I kept my card sketch pretty simple just adding a strip across the middle to add that sentiment from the Autumn Words Sentiment Set.

When I create these dies, I lay them out first just so I have an idea of where things go. (At the bottom of the first pic, it took me a few minutes to realize that was the sleeves and not a base!) The Copic colors I used were: Straw-Y21, Y23; Face-E000, YR14, C7; Shorts-BV31, BV34, Top-R81, R83, R21; Hat-E21, E23, G00; Birds-E44, and Stick-E25. The paper is 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

Super fun Turkey too! He is colored with E41, E43, YR65, R81, E33. I added a Stitched Rounded Square offset just slightly to frame him a bit.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Hello there, Jackie here today. I know we are well into Autumn but I just couldn’t resist one last summery make. I have mixed the old with the new to create this little bit of paradise.

Step One:

Start by preparing the card base. Use the largest die from the circle set 1116 to draw a circle on the front of a 4.25 x 4.25″ card blank ensuring to leave the circle overhanging the top edge slightly, carefully cut out the circle creating a circular shaped card. Use the same die to die cut a circular panel.

Step Two:

Die cut and build all the elements inking or colouring which ever way you would like, here I have used distress inks around the edges leaving a small white area in the centres of the flowers and leaves.

Step Three:

To create the wooden sign. Use the chisel end of a brown alcohol marker to draw irregular lines onto a scrap piece of brown card. Fussy cut out a plank shape and ink around the edges then white heat emboss your sentiment.

Step Four:

Attach the circular panel to the card blank then arrange all the elements fixing some in place with 3d foam pads for added dimension. If you do not want your card to rock then snip off a small piece on the reverse side of the card blank.

Thank you for stopping by today…I hope I have inspired you to mix the old with the new.

Happy crafting – Jackie

Gratitude Card

October 8, 2021

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Gratitude Card.

To create my Gratitude Card, I’ve used a variety of dies from Joset Designs and stamps from the Beautiful Blooms Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my card at home.

Step One. Choose two pieces of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book 2. Die cut a 4″ Stitched Rounded Rectangle out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Rounded Rectangle out of the other patterned paper. Distress the edges of both rectangles. Ink the edges of both rectangles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Choose one piece of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book 2. Die cut a 3 3/4″ Fitted Rounded Rectangle out of one of the patterned paper. Distress the edge of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Choose another piece of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book 2. Die cut a 3/4″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtail out of the patterned paper. Cut the fishtail down to 3″. Apply Ground Espresso Distress Ink to the Gratitude word from the Beautiful Blooms – Gratitude stamp set. Stamp onto the fishtail. Distress the edges of the fishtail. Ink the edges of the fishtail using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the Gratitude Stamp Set, you’ll need the rose bunch and the single rose. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the rose bunch and stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the single rose and stamp onto the same piece of cardstock. Reapply ink to the single rose and stamp again on the same piece of watercolour cardstock. Colour the rose bunch and the two single roses in using a waterbrush and the Watercolour Palette. Once the flowers have dried, fussy cut the flowers out. Ink the edges of the flowers using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. Adhere the 3 3/4″ rectangle to the 4″ rectangle. Foam square the 3 1/2″ rectangle to the 3 3/4″ rectangle.

Step Six. Adhere the fishtail 1 7/8″ from the bottom and 1 1/4″ from the left of the 3 1/2″ rectangle. Adhere the single roses around the fishtail as desired.

Step Seven. Foam square the rose bunch so that it sits slightly on the adhered single roses.

Step Eight. To finish the card, cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4″ x 10 1/2″, score at 5 1/4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Gratitude Card at home.

Glitter Witch

October 7, 2021

Hey Friends! It’s EK and I am getting ready for Halloween today by pulling out my Halloween Accessories die set and my collection of Silk Microfine Glitter to create a nit of halloween magic.

Step One: On a piece of trimmed 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock, blend ink in halloween colors. I used Carved Pumpkin, Mowed Lawn and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide.

Step Two: Splatter the ink with water. Let dry.

Step Three: Blend dark ink around the edges of the cardstock. I used Black Soot Distress Oxide.

Step Four: Die cut the inked cardstock with the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set.

Step Five: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the die cut inked panel to an A2 card frame.

Step Six: Die cut the Halloween Accessories die set out of Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheets. I used the witches hat and broom set.

Step Seven: Adhere the broom handle onto the card frame. Peel off top adhesive sheet and add Copper Bronze Silk Microfine Glitter from the Earth Palette Collection.

Step Eight: Add the bristles of the broom and coat the clear double sided adhesive with Moonbeam from the Earth Palette Silk Microfine Glitter collection.

Step Nine: Add the broom band and add Brushed Pewter Silk Microfine Glitter to it.

Step Ten: Add the witches hat and add Lavender Ice Silk Microfine Glitter.

Step Eleven: Add the witches band and coat the adhesive in Leaf Green Silk Microfine Glitter.

Step Twelve: Add Black Soot Distress Oxide to a a scrap of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the sentiment ‘happy halloween’ from the Words 3- Happy Holidays.

Step Thirteen: Adhere the sentiment to the card frame using liquid adhesive such as Kids Choice Glue. Add a few squeezes of Craft Drops in Pearl Olive. Let dry.

I just love how the die cuts look covered in glitter. I think it makes the whole card look really special.

Let us know what you think of this colorful creation in the comments below. What would you use Silk Microfine Glitter on?

Halloween Pizza Box

October 6, 2021

This fun pizza box has a shaker box on top with all kinds of scary critters, ghosts and other Halloween shaker material in it. That’s nice of course, especially to treat children, a toy and in the box….A trick are a treat????

On the boxes I glued the scarecrow from Esther’s new collection.

The inside is also decorated.

Of course there is something delicious in it but even that looks very spooky!!!

Below is a small workshop of how I made the box.

The box is punched out of purple cardstock.

Gathered some shaking material.

For the top and the inside of Halloween box I used design paper (I don’t remember which brand it is but very old). Die cut with the dies of the pizza box.

The stamps are also part of Esther’s collection and you can play with them and make a ticket according to your own idea!

The edge received a layer of double-sided tape of 3 mm

Stick a piece of mica on it and then strips of foam tape, also of 3 mm, along the edges. I cut it myself. TIP from Els.

You now have a raised edge so that the shaker material will have room to move later.

I decorated the edges of the box both on the inside and the outside with distress ink.

The piece of design paper that I stuck on the top first got some nice stamps. The spider web is from my own collection.

Then stick the piece with mica on it, leave the strip of the foam tape on the top so you can fill the shaker box with the shaker material.

If everything is to your liking, remove the strip from the foam tape and stick the shaker box firmly to the box, pressing the edges well.

Then you can decorate the inside according to your own idea.

When the box has been completely processed on the inside and outside you can stick the scarecrow on it with glue. If you prefer to use tape, be careful not to cover the entire scarecrow with tape, because it sticks a bit over the box.

The edges of my box also got a decorative layer, you can use strips of design paper for that. I made strips with an impresslits from Tim Holtz and inked them with distress ink.

I had so much fun creating this box. I have already made 2, this is the other one.

For the other one I just used white cardstock and edited it with stamps and a stencil from the Art collection with the bird’s feet.

Bring on Halloween!

CAS slimline Christmas cards in bold colors

October 3, 2021

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again today with another guest team member card tutorial. For today´s card share I wanted to create a set of slimline Christmas cards in bold colours. I did that by using actually very little supplies, so these cards are easy to replicate and do plenty of at once.

I have again used the gorgeous Classic Christmas Special Kit for creating these cards and the only thing I added to the kit was Brusho´s, metallic watercolours, embossing powders and ink. If you don´t have Brusho´s, you can replace them with spray inks, watercolour palettes or even patterned papers. Here is how I did the cards:

Step 1: Take white plain cardstock and apply the Brusho powders onto the surface. Spray water mist on top and let the colors spread on paper. You can also help a little with a paint brush and then dry with a heat tool. Once you are at it, create several different toned ones, so you can create a series of cards in the end.
Step 2: Next apply metallic or pearlescent watercolor splatters with a paint brush on top of the bold colored pieces and let dry.

Step 3: Now die cut the same amount of backgrounds using the background die from the Classic Christmas Special Kit and adhere it on top of the colorful piece.
Step 4: Next stamp and heat emboss sentiments using the stamp set from the kit. I used white, red, blue and black embossing color tones for my cards, but you can take any colour you prefer.
Step 5: Finally, fussy cut the sentiment pieces into right size and adhere them onto the card bases using 3D-foam. This adds nice dimension to the cards.

Now you have a fun set of Christmas cards, that are still flat enough to be mailed in an envelope, but will for sure cheer up the recipient with their strong colours.

I have again recorded a video for you to watch, so you get a better idea of each and every step. Enjoy!

I created a total of six cards using the same basic technique, but just changing the color combinations. I love how happy and bright there cards turned out.

I hope I could inspire you to give this idea a try and create a few clean and simple Christmas cards yourself. You can also divede the stept into several days. One day all you need to do is make the backgrounds, the next you die cut the white pieces and the day after you stamp and emboss the sentiments and on the final day you just adhere everything together. That way you could do a bigger batch of cards, too.

See you again next month with another card tutorial!
xxx, Sanna

Happy Harvest Tri-fold card

September 30, 2021

Hello everyone, it’s Alice here. Today I want to show you how to create this fun Happy Harvest tri-fold card using some brand new dies from the Halloween collection designed by Joset. As a base for the 3 panels I used the Planner Essentials Die 1868, Shapes, Frames & Words. On the background I made some clouds with a mask stencil and Distress Ink Oxide (Tumbles glass). For the panels I also used Planner Essential Die 1868 and some beautiful paper from Bella BLVD that are fantastic for Fall and Halloween projects.

I made a fence on all three panels. This one is from the Adventure Edges 2 set. The fences are cut from White Soft Finish cardstock and colored with Ground espresso Distress Ink. Exactly 5 posts of the fence fit on each panel.

I added a corn stalk on the outer 2 panels also cut from White Soft Finish cardstock and colored with Mustard seed and Crushed olive Distress Ink. For the roots I used Vintage photo.

In the middle I used the very cute scarcrow. For this one I used many different colors Distress Ink. All the colors I used you can see on the picture below.

I added the Happy Harvest sentiment just in front of the scarecrow. I stamps the sentiment on a little piece of White Soft Finish cardstock that I colored with Rusty hinge Distress Ink.

I added some leaves to each panel for decoration. I used the leave dies that are included in the Turkey die set for this.

Below you can see the finished card one more time. I hope that I inspired you with this project and I hope that you will have just as much fun with the new Halloween collection as I did. It’s so cool to combine all the different dies!
