Imagine Wall Hanging

August 4, 2020

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Imagine Wall Hanging.

To create my Imagine Wall Hanging, I’ve used a variety of dies, stamps and stencils from Charlene and Ilse’s Art Journal Specials Collection as well as dies from Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my wall hanging at home.

Step One. Die cut a 4 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of Black Cardstock. Distress the edges of the square.

Step Two. Die cut a 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of a piece of book page. Place the Storytelling stencil in the middle of the square. Using a palette knife and Texture Paste Opaque Matte through the stencil. Remove the stencil and allow the stenciled area to dry. Once the square is dry, distress the edges of the square. Ink the edges of the square using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Die cut the Bubbles out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Emboss It Ink to the entire surface of the bubbles. Sprinkle Burnt Copper Leaves embossing powder over the entire surface. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Step Four. Die cut the right Ornate Gateway die out of kraft cardstock. Ink the edges of the gateway using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. From the Streetlights die, die cut the street lamp out of black cardstock.

Step Six. Die cut one of the blooming branches from the Blooming Branches die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Die cut the other bloom out of a piece of book page.

Step Seven. Choose two of the leaves from the Spring Fling Stamp Set. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to both stamps and stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Colour the leaves in using the Watercolour Palette and a waterbrush. Once the images have dried, fussy cut them out. Ink the edges of the leaves using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. Next, you’ll need the cotton stamp from the First Sights of Spring Stamp Set. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the stamp and stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Colour the cotton in using the Watercolour Palette and a waterbrush. Once the image has dried, fussy cut it out. Ink the edges of the cotton using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Nine. From the Morning Letters Stamp Set, you’ll need the letters to spell out Imagine. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to each of the letters and stamp onto a piece of White Soft Finish cardstock to spell the word imagine. Fussy cut the word out. Ink the edges of the word using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Ten. Adhere the 4 1/4″ stitched indented square to the 4 3/4″ stitched indented square.

Step Eleven. Adhere the bubbles to the middle of the 4 1/4″ stitched indented square. Foam square the ornate gate to the middle of the bubbles. Adhere the street lamp to the middle of the ornate gate.

Step Twelve. Adhere the first blooming branch overtop and to the left of the street lamp. Adhere the other blooming branch overtop and to the right of the street lamp. Adhere one of the stamped branches slightly overtop of the left blooming branch. Adhere the other stamped branch slightly overtop of the right blooming branch.

Step Thirteen. Foam square the cotton image to the middle of the branches making sure that you can see part of the street lamp. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the imagine word to the right side of the cotton.

Step Fourteen. Punch two holes at the top of the 4 3/4″ stitched indented square. Tie a piece of twine through the two holes to create the hanging part for your wall hanging.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Imagine Wall Hanging.

Happy Birthday To You Card

August 3, 2020

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. The new Fairy release has 3 new Background dies. Organic Triangles, Floral Burst and Leaf Pattern. I love background dies because you can diecut and use them as is or they can be used as a stencil. Background dies make it super easy to create any occasion cards in no time at all. Just diecut the background die, applying ink before or after and add a big bold sentiment. Below you will find the steps to create your own Happy Birthday to You card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”. Diecut Floral Burst Background. The diecut will be your stencil.

Step 3 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”. Apply Ink of your choice filling the Cardstock. I inked using the colours of a rainbow. I used Distress Oxide Inks. Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Ripe Persimmon, Dusty Concord, Tumbled Glass, Moved Lawn, Cracked Pistachio.

Step 4 – Place the stencil created from Step 2 on top of the panel. I used some Pixie Spray on the backside and some Painter’s Tape to secure it. Apply Black Ink all over. Remove the stencil. This technique is called a Reverse Stencil Technique. Trim the edges and adhere to the card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 5 – Stamp Hello sentiment onto White Soft Finish Cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Trim the edges and adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 6 – Optional – For added interest and sparkle randomly adhere Jewels.

This card can be used for many occasions by changing the colours and sentiment. The Floral Burst Background die will be available in the shop this week. Below is a link to the product list. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting.

Fairy Kisses

July 28, 2020

Karen here from Craftily Yours. I’m excited to show you some cards I made using Joset’s new release! So many cute fairies, princes and princesses. She also threw in an adorable frog, some background dies and some great sentiments. So much fun!

These new items aren’t on the website yet – but they will be VERY soon! You can find them now by contacting your local craft store that carries our wonderful products!

This first card using the Fairy 1 dies. How cute is that sweet girl!?! She is colored with Copic markers. I used the Organic Triangle Background Die. I love the look of using the “waste” in this die. The sentiment is from the Once Upon a Time Stamps.

To do it, first colored the background with three colors of Distress Oxide inks and covered the back of a piece of 90lb White Soft Finish Cardstock with 101mm adhesive. Then I ran it through the die cutting machine. Next, I cut another die cut to use as my template and pieced back in the “waste” part of the die. There is probably an easier way to do this, but I actually found it to be very relaxing like putting together a puzzle!

And there’s a new accessories set – called Once Upon a Time Accessories. Adorable little flower, butterfly, clouds, mushroom, etc. Love it. I used the die cut from my first card as a background for this one. Sweet. Again, I colored with Copic Markers.

Thanks for stopping by!

Craftily yours, Karen

Purr-fect Day!

July 26, 2020

Hello and welcome! Samantha here with this purr-fect card featuring Elizabeth Craft Designs Cat die along with a few other fun items that work so well with this slim line card.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Use washi tape to secure a slim line white card front (Card Measurement: 10cm x 21cm) to the craft mat. Next, position the stencil over the white card (leaving 1/3 white space on the top). Secure the stencil down with washi tape.

Step 2: Use a blending tool to blend in a generous amount of light pink ink over the stencil, through to the white card.

Step 3: Reposition the stencil, secure and repeat ink blending until the whole card front is full.

Step 4: Repeat steps 1-3 using dark pink ink. Repeat again using light grey ink. Over lap the ink blending where possible.

Step 5: Use grey and light pink card to die cut the Cat image.

Step 6: Assemble and adhere the cat to the top right corner of the card front.

Step 7: Use pink card to die cut the Planner Labels tag die. Resize the tag by die-cutting the bottom section only.

Stamp the sentiment. Adhere to the card front as shown in main image.

Step 8: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to white cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Fuchsia). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Use this glitter card to die cut the small heart from the Planner Labels die.

Step 9: Continue to die cut the small heart section of the Planner Label die – use light pink and grey card.

Step 10: Embellish the card front with the hearts. Die cut the fish skeleton using white card. Adhere these to the card front. Embellish with sequins and a twine bow.

Hope you like todays card inspiration! Slim Cards are very in at the moment – simply by moving the stencil around you can create any sized card you wish!

Happy Crafting!

Book Mark Greeting Card

July 19, 2020

Hello friends, it’s Sandy Diller here with a YouTube inspired project. I saw this card – book mark done by Jennifer McGuire and decided to make one putting my own spin on it. With school officially closed for the summer, reading is even more important for our kidos. Any child would love to receive this fun card that encourages reading.

The book mark simply pulls out of the front of the card and is ready for a favorite book.

Who wouldn’t love to find this on their page?

I began by cutting the Parrot from white Soft Finish Cardstock and then adding the colors (Distress Oxide Inks). I used blending brushes from Picket Fence Studio but you could do this using whatever you have. By adding the color this way you get some shading in the area that you want.

Assemble Parrot.

This is a 5.5″ square card so the base was cut 5.5″ X 11″ and then creased in the center. Using the Indented Squares die set, cut one large (5.25″ square) and two smaller ( 3.25″ square).

A square is needed for the small panel that has an opening for the book mark. The decorative panel for this card is 3.25″ so a 3.50″ panel is needed. Cut a square that is 2 times larger than the desired panel. The square we want is 3.50″ so a 7″ square is needed. Cut the 7″ square in half creating two triangles (only one is needed for this card). Score the triangle at 3.5″ on each side.

Fold the triangle into a square and add a panel to both sides.

The larger square should cut down the center in order to hold the book mark.

Add the Parrot to the front panel of the square with the opening on either side, it is shown on the left side here.

Stamp sentiment of your choice on the bottom of the card. Slide the open side of the book mark straddling the cut in the card.

Attach to card base. Decorate the inside or simply write your message.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed this fun project.

Life’s a Beach

July 14, 2020

Hi there,

it’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this summer tag/bookmark with the small image stamps from several sentiment sets:

Step 1: Die Cutting and Background Stamping

  • die cut a tag from smooth white cardstock and if you like another tag from patterned paper that you can use in the back using the smaller tag die from the Planner Essentials 26 set
  • stamp the little heart from the Bear Hugs Sentiments, the shells and the starfish from the Splish Splash Sentiments and the sun and sunglasses from the Beach Sentiments set with Versafine Clair Morning Mist to create a background pattern on your tag

Step 2: Sentiment and little Accent

  • stamp the palm trees from the Beach Sentiments Set wit Versafine Clair Morning Mist
  • stamp the sentiment from the same set with Versafine Clair Nocturne onto a piece of torn vellum and heat-emboss it with clear embossing powder
  • wrap the vellum around the tag and secure it with washi tape and the patterned paper packing you die cut earlier

Step 3: Finishing Touches

  • color the image with Derwent Artists pencils and adhere it above the sentiment strip
  • thread three strands of twine through the hole of the tag

I hope you got inspired.

Hugs,

Supplies:

A Way With Words Joset Designs

Congratulations!

July 11, 2020

Hi! How many hobbies do you have? And have you ever combined your hobbies? I love the cards with the machine stitching, cross- stitching, watercoloring… It’s a surprising amount of things you can pull into your cards. Today I am doing a very easy one – adding origami paper to my card. My son got these and gave me the “less cool” ones and I thought they were perfect to use with the Asian Accessories die set.

I die cut the lantern out of 4 sheets of origami at a time – which is a great time saver since the paper is thinner than regular card stock. The paper is so very pretty and also has a nice, almost velvety texture that adds to the card.

To start the card, I trimmed a sheet of white card stock to 5 5/16″ x 4 1/8″ and sponged the top a soft blue. Using an awl, I poked two small holes at the top and strung a gold wire through it. ( I lost the packaging but I think it is 24 gauge or thinner.) I found this to be a lot easier to control than twine and love the shine to it. I popped up 3 lanterns with foam tape on them. The strings that attach the lantern to the wire was cut from black card stock that had the double sided adhesive on the back. Carefully put one side in front of the wire and the other on the back.

The final addition is a the die cut of Congratulations covered with Silver Sands Microfine Silk glitter with a black drop shadow. I’m looking forward to when I could use this motif for a party invitation!

Hugs And Kisses Card

July 6, 2020

Hi Everyone, It’s Tina here. Today I am sharing a card using the Cherry Blossom Branch and Parrot dies along with the Fitted and Stitched Rounded Rectangles die. Below is the steps to create your own Hugs & Kisses Card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Diecut Fitted Rounded Rectangles using Solid Patterned Paper. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Diecut Stitched Rounded Rectangles using a Leaf Patterned Paper. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 4 – Stamp Bear Hugs Sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink in the upper left corner.

Step 5 – Diecut Cherry Blossom Branch using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Colour in the pieces in any medium of your choice. I used inks with a blender brush. Assemble the Branch and adhere to card using Foam Tape. (Tip: Did you know the small Cherry Blossom die (new bud) can be used as a leaf) That is what I used behind the Cherry Blossoms.

Step 6 – Diecut Parrot using Coloured Cardstock. Assemble and adhere the parrot to the card. I used a wobble to have some dimension and movement to the parrot.

This card can be used for many occasions by simply changing the sentiment. Below you will find a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
