Monster-fied Critters

August 12, 2022

Hi, Karen here today. For today’s post, I decided to “monster-fy” a couple of Joset’s other critters. I made the funniest dog and a very unusual elephant as the centerpieces for some fun cards.

First up, I used the Dog die set to create this funny little critter. The face is from the Monster 2 set. I put the head with the eyes, nose, ears and body from the Dog. I love how silly he looks. I used Kraft cardstock for most of the pieces (except the eyes and teeth which are 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. The dog is framed by a Stitched Circle Die. Using 101mm behind pieces like the eyes before diecutting makes them so easy to adhere.

The face, ears, legs and body are edged with a tiny bit of Tea Dye Distress Ink. The collar is colored with a Copic Marker as is the tag and eyes.

I used all of the pieces of the Elephant die except I turned the body sideways to make him unusually skinny. haha I also used the head and horns from the Monster 1 die set.

I cut most of the pieces with very light grey cardstock and edged them with a bit of Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. The ears are cut from 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock and are colored with Kitsch Flamingo Distress Ink. The eyes and ears are cut using 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to make them easy to put together! I used the Monster Hugs stamps on both cards.

Thank you for stopping by!

Craftily yours, Karen

Christmas in the forest

August 11, 2022

Hii everyone, it is my turn to share a card with you today. In the Netherlands it is pretty warm so I made a Christmas card. I’m using some older dies, some new planner dies and everything in between hihi.

So it is a pop-up card in Christmas theme. I started with a piece of brown paper 21 cm x 30,5 cm. I made a crease at the 15,25 cm. Exactly the middle. In the Middle I used the 2 cm pop-up dies.

I did the same thing but then with a smaller pop-up dies. I did this at both sides 3,5 cm from the outside. I also trimmed from light brown paper a piece who fits perfectly at the bottom.

Now it’s time to start build the card and making some fun elements. So I started with the mushroom. This is a dies from Joset’s Storybook Collection. I used almost all the dies only the grass and the flowers not this time. But I did used the lights from the newest planner release from Esther, Planner Essentials 53. I die-cut it twice, one in brown, one in Soft Finish Cardstock so I can build up the lights. I also used the Winter Greens from the Florals the give the Mushroom a Christmas look.

The back from the Mushroom is adhere at pop-up in the middle. The next step is adhere the trees at the back, not the pop-up. The trees are from the Mason Jar kit, beautiful trees. I adhere them in different hights, so it gives more dimension.

Then I adhere some lighter trees at the darker trees.

And at least some trees at the pop-up.

Later I will add someting between the trees but for now I will make the gnomes from Joset’s dies. These gnomes are great because you can make different gnomes. I made a small boy with a mushroom and tree. I added the tree later so you can’t see it on this picture. I also used the star from Planner Essentials 53.

And the girl gnome with some holly at here dress. This is a dies from the snowglobe from Joset’s dies.

Then I was thinking how can I fill the rest? Well I adhere some stones at path. These stones are from the sea collection.

And what I also did is making to fishtails at both sides with 2 different sentiments. Both sentiments are from the Joyful Wishes stamp.

So that was my blogpost for today. I know I used a lot of dies but go through your dies and see what you have. You can also used some other dies for the path.

So thankyou for visiting! See you soon.

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Pop-up Shaker Snowman Card!

August 8, 2022

Hi friends, thank you for joining me today with this super cute pop-up shaker card. Its so hard to capture all the glitter on this card with a photograph so I am hoping you make your own so you can see how amazing this glitter that Els uses all the time really is. So lets get started!

Step 1: Attach a piece of your adhesive sheet to your heavy weight cardstock (Keep the backing onto your adhesive sheet as this is where you will add your glitter) cut your card front to 4 3/4 x 5 1/4, next with your adhesive side facing up , take your large snowflake die from the Art Journal Christmas Special and cut out the snowflake from the center of your page.

Step 2: Peel off the adhesive backing so your front card base is sticky and add your glitter, you will be surprised how little it takes to cover your page. Tap off the extra glitter, then attach a piece of acetate to the back of your front base covering your snowflake.

Step 3: Next, add some foam tape to all four sides of the back of my snowflake page closing the gaps so none of my shaker bits come out, I removed three side of my foam tape and placed it on top my card base that measures 5 x 5 1/2, next I filled my shaker bits through the space where the adhesive is still attached to the foam tape, once I have enough bits I removed the backing and sealed my shaker card. (Please see picture above)

Step 4: Cutting the base of the card, Take a heavy white cardstock and cut your card base 5 1/2 x 11 and score along the 11″ side at 5 1/2 and 2 3/4 and fold up your score lines as per picture above.

Step 5: Next attach your snowflake shaker to the bottom part of your folded card, this creates an easel style card.

Step 6: Out of your favorite cardstock cut out Jack frost from Joset’s collection, once you have assembled and inked your snowman, speckle with heavy body white paint.

Step 7: Attached your snowman using pop dot to the top of the card base, I also added a few jewels.

Step 8: I added a greeting from Classic Christmas Sentiments #CS101 and I cut out a few snowflakes from the Classic Christmas Collection kit and glittered my snowflakes. Next I pop dotted my greeting this creates a lip for your easel card.

I hope you enjoyed todays blog post and I am hoping you will join in and create a special glitter Christmas Card!

Have a wonderful day and Happy Crafting!

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

Celebrate

August 3, 2022

Hello everyone, Alice here! How are you today? It’s my turn to show you a project here. This time I made a card with the Planner Essentials 42 and the Monster dies. I had so much fun creating this card and I hope you will to!

One of the frames has the text Celebrate. A perfect theme for this creation. I die cut the frames in a pink cardstock. The one on the left and on the right are basic frames. The one in the middle is the one with the text. For the background I used some patterned paper with bricks on it. For a special effect I made some splatters with distress oxide in the color Peacock Feathers.

Then I made two cute little monster, one I die cut from pink cardstock and the other one from light blue/aqua cardstock. Two little friends having fun! I die cut some cookies as accessories for the pink one.

I also die cut some party accessories as decoration using dies from the Party time set. The garlands are all over the place. How fun are those!

I also added some confetti pieces all over the card using the same colors as the rest of the card. In the end I added some white splatters all over the card. Now let the party begin!

I hope this project makes you as happy as the monsters on this card. Have a lot of fun creating this card by yourself. See you next time!

Greetings Alice

Boy Birthday Flip Card

July 31, 2022

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. My son finally reached the TEEN stage so I wanted to make him a special card for his birthday.  I really like the Birthday Flip Card die set and could not wait to give it a try. 

Preparation: 

From white cardstock, cut the card base and the two accessory layers from the Birthday Flip Card die set. Using the Fitted Rectangles die set, cut two rectangles out of the same white cardstock. Using the happy birthday from Birthday Flip Card die set, cut out the happy birthday from colored cardstock of your choice. From the Party Time die set, cut some confetti pieces from the same colored cardstock. Cut the balloon from the Party Time die set, cut a balloon from clear stencil material. Also cut the balloon from masking paper. I like to use full adhesive Post-It notes. Using the number tag from Planner Essentials 26 , cut out the number tag topper from scrap cardstock. Finally, cut the birthday number from black cardstock using the Planner Essentials 37 die set. I like to cut them 3 times because I adhere them together allowing for dimension to the numbers without having to use foam tape. 

Instructions: 
Using the tag topper die cut, stencil numbers randomly on the card layering pieces and one of the Fitted Rectangles die cuts. Also ink the edges of the pieces with the same colored ink.  

Using the other Fitted Rectangle die cut, lay the balloon stencil created from the Party Time die set and adhere with low tack tape. Using the same colored ink from the previous set and in a balloon onto the rectangle. Be sure to wipe the ink off of your stencil before moving to the next step. 

Using the balloon mask, lay the mask over the first inked balloon. Shift the stencil to the left to create another balloon. Ink the balloon with another ink and then clean the stencil.  

Shift the stencil to the right and repeat the same process.  

Once all of the stenciling is completed, use a black pen to draw in balloon strings.  

Adhere the number to the rectangle 

On the stenciled rectangle, stamp happy from the Sentiments 1 – Celebrations stamp set. From the happy birthday die cut, adhere be day. For the hyphen, is the knock out from the letter “A”.  

Adhere the layering pieces and the stenciled rectangle to the flip card base 

Fold the card base on the score lines to activate the flipping mechanism 

Adhere the balloon panel to the flip card. Randomly add confetti pieces. Optionally, add white highlights to the balloon using a white gel pen. The card I now complete

Splash Attack

July 29, 2022

Karen here. I am having such a fun time with the Monster Party dies and decided to recreate the Whale as a monster as an embellishment to my splash attack day scrapbook/planner page. My boyfriend’s dog loves to bite at the splashes and has a really sweet underbite, so I thought this whale monster fit perfectly.

First thing I did was create the waves and this sweet monster. For all of it, I used 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. The monster is a combination of the Whale (body and fins) and the Monster 1 (face). I used Black Soot distress ink to color him up and cut the teeth in “half” and turned them upside down to create the underbite. The cut the eyes and teeth with the 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock backed with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to make them easy to adhere. The waves are cut from the Ocean Edges dies after coloring up the paper by smooshing it into distress oxide inks in Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon. The waves crashed over the whole on the planner page, so I just repunched it after attaching them in layers.

I added my splash monster and wave embellishments to a Planner Essentials 2 page cut from dark blue cardstock. The letters on this page are from Planner Essentials 37. I used scrap pieces I had from the Mystical Winter paper to add a bit of pattern to the page. The page tab is from the Planner Essential 4 set and are stamped with a stamp from the Moods set.

More fun on the back of the page. For the journaling here, I printed the journal and cut with a die from the Planner Label set. And, of course, I had to add some fun reinforcements to finish up my pages.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Sweet ‘n Scary

July 28, 2022

Hi all, hope you’re doing all fine and ready for a new blogpost. It is my turn again today so I made a planner page with the lovely monsters from Joset. It is a great collection for making cards, but also great for using in a planner.

So let’s start with the page. I used the base page without tab at it (1604). It is an older dies but I think some of you have it. Above this base page I adhere the splatter page. It is just a beautiful pages that give something special. The paper I used is from Reminiscene the book 4. For the next steps I lay everything at the page and when I’m happy with it I adhere all together.

The background was very clean for me so I cut out two tags which came out the Reminiscene book 4. I als trimmed of a piece paper which I teared at the sides. Now it looks like 2 pockets with tags. Just putting a reinforcement and some hemp cord at the tags and I can adhere it. I also adhere the reinforcements at the page before everything is covered.

All the edges are coloured with Distress Ink Black Soot.

Now we can make the picture frames. The Planner Filmstrip dies (1656) has 2 frames, one with tab and one without. I die-cut this from black and kraft paper so I can make combine this together.

Behind the frames I adhere some paper so I can add pictures later. In the Splatter page set there are flowers in it. I used this as decoration at the frames. In the flowers I add the fallen pieces from the reinforcements.

I adhere the frame a little diagonally. And then the monsters. This monster is a combination from monster 2 and 3. I used the belly, tooth and wings from monster 2, the eyes from monster 3 and the nose from the party time set. The tooths are great as hair. All these elements are coloured with Distress Ink.

Isn’t this a cute one? Now then you’ll find the next one even as cute. This is monster 2 with his hat, big feets and hands who hold the frames. He even has a little flower at the top of his hat.

Then the last frame. This frame is without the tab, but I put a little filmstrip piece between the frame.

For me it gives a little bit extra. At the bottom of the frame I adhere a piece from the Reminiscene book and an arrow. Also at this frame I adhere some flowers. Oh and I totally forgot to say, before I adhere the frames to the pages I stamped some sentiments from the Monster hugs at it.

So I think I told you everything about this page, hopefully you liked it and got some ideas to.

Thankyou for visiting and see you soon!

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

The Party Train

July 21, 2022

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. I absolutely LOVE the new monster collection from Joset Designs. Today I am sharing a card that I created using the collection.

Preparation:

For the card base, cut a piece of cardstock to 10″ x 7″ and score at 5″. Also cut a piece of white soft finish cardstock to 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″. Cut out the fence from the Slimline Adventure Edges in both black cardstock and woodgrain cardstock. Also cut the shrub edge from a scrap piece of cardstock to use as a stencil in later steps. Using Monster 1 and Monster 3, cut and assemble your characters out of your favorite colors of cardstock. For added depth and dimension, ink the edges of each body piece with a coordinating ink. Also add party hats from the Party Time die set. For fun, you can cut the hat out of multiple colors, cut some of the hats along the embossed lines and adhere to a base hat. Finally cut and assemble the Holiday Train and Train Carts out of party themed cardstock.

Instructions:
Using piece of cardstock cut with the shrub die, place on your card front and lightly ink above using a light blue ink and your favorite blending tool. Shift the stencil down and lightly ink again. Continue the process until your reach your horizon line. Flip your stencil to the straight edge and use as a mask for your inked sky background. Ink the exposed bottom portion of the card front with green ink. For extra dimension, you can use 3 green inks ranging from light to dark and blend a grassy bottom portion of the card. For this card, some water droplets were also added.

For the railroad track, adhere the black diecut fence upside down with the points hanging off of the edge of the card front.

Cut apart the fence posts from the woodgrain cardstock and adhere to the corresponding black fence posts on the card front. Flip the card front over and trim off the excess fence pieces hanging over the edge. Using a silver pen, place two dots top and bottom on the wood pieces for the railroad nails. Optional, use a green pen to flick blades of grass on the green portion of the card front.

Adhere the Holiday Train and Holiday Carts to your railroad track.

Cut the Monster Hugs and Let’s Party stamps in half to creat a new stamp saying Monster Party. Do not worry, you will still be able to use the stamps in the original word design for later projects.

Adhere your cardfront to your card base. Put your monsters in the train carts. Optional, for a smoke effect from the train engine, cut the train icing die from grey cardstock and adhere as if coming out of the engin
