Halloween Turkey

September 22, 2021

Hii everyone,

It’s me Lisanne again. This time I show a little tag which I made with the new Happy Harvest. It is absolutely a great collection!

I started with some Distress Oxide Chipped Sapphire ink at the top of the tag. If you spray some water at the ink, the ink respons and give some beautiful background.

Than I made the grass line and the fench. Behind the fence are some pumpkins (Hay Ride, 1909). Love to colour this with some beautiful orange Distress Ink with a little bit of brown and green. Oh and than the crows at the pumpkins. I love that! The crows are from the Scarecrow (1907).

Now I can make the eye cather with the Turkey (1905). You can make the Turkey just normal and adhere it together with glue. But I want some dimension at this tag, so I but some foam pads between the feathers. In this die there is one feather. But if you trim this of in different layers across the lines, you can make these dimension into it.

Hopefully you like this small blogpost about this small tag. I’ve had a lot of fun making this tag.

Thankyou for visiting! See you soon!

Hello Pumpkin

September 19, 2021

Hello my friends, it’s Sandy Diller here with you today. I live in Arizona so it is still hot here but I love the colors of fall (orange is my fav) so I ignore the heat and pretend it’s a cooler fall day. Today’s card is filled with fall colors and some very cute images both old and new.

This is a 9″ X 4″ slimline card so the measurements start out as 9″ X 8″ scored down the center of the 8″ side.

The front panel is 3.75″ X 8.75″.

To start out I used some white Soft Finish Cardstock and did a little color blending using the colors of fall. The original plan was to have a horizontal slimline card but as things progressed it turned into a vertical one.

Some silver stars were added using a stencil and some embossing paste. I always love the results of this method but sometimes forget about it. It is good way to get dimension and add interest to any card.

After cutting a couple grass strips and adding some ink the base was ready to go.

I used Joset’s Pumpkin die – cutting it from white and then coloring it. You can cut this one from colored cardstock as well. If you are a long time ECD fan you will recognize the other pumpkin from long ago. I still love it. Using the Cat die set I cut out and assembled my black cat. I used some parts from the Fox die set to make the paws as I wanted some that were larger than the ones in the Cat die set. The eyes are Craft Drops that I let dry and then colored with a marker.

The Hello Pumpkin banner is from an older set that has been discontinued. You may notice that the banner on the finished card is different from the one shown above . I was not happy with the color so simply stamped another one from white and edged it with some green.

Some of the elements were added to the front panel and then the entire thing was edged in black. Once the project was at this point some leaves, a spooky tree and another pumpkin were added.

Thanks for stopping by – have a creative week,

One Kit – Many Possibilities

September 18, 2021

Karen here today. I’m having such fun with the NEW Classic Christmas Special Kit. I made slimline cards using the included slimline die earlier, and today, I am sharing four A2 sized cards I made for Christmas using the dies.

The background die in this set is long enough to be used as background for a standard slimline die. On this first card, I backed the 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive before cutting it out. Then I adhered it to a piece of patterned paper and cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die. From there, I added the ornament, snowflake and sentiment from the set and added some ribbon and gems.

This card was a little simpler and used some stitched circles of different patterned paper to add interest. The sentiment is stamped onto a Stitched Rounded Rectangle die and then cut off on the top.

For this card, I again adhered the background die to another piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock and then cut the ornament with it. I love the texture it added to the card. The only “new” die I used on this card (i.e. not used on previous cards) is the Fitted Rounded Rectangle.

And finally, I used the rest of the piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock with the background die on it and cut it with a Fitted Rounded Rectangle. Again, I love the texture that it adds.

There are so many fun possibilities with this set! Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

11 September, 2021

Hello all, it’s Jackie here with a card made using a couple of the cute character’s. I have changed the characters outfits slightly to create a little flamenco show staring Senor Farmer and Senorita Fairy, so let’s raise the curtain and get started.

Step One: Start by blending light blue ink onto the middle section of a 6×6″ card blank, allow this to dry before inking a circular centre creating a spot light.

Step Two: Trim a panel of red and brown cardstock to fit the top and bottom (approximately 6×1.25″) die cut a fancy edge into the red panel using Planner Essentials 27. Add detail using a gold pen then attach to the card blank using 3d foam pads.

Step Three: To change the farmer – build as normal except the shirt using the arms to create the jacket. Die cut the shirt arms and an extra dungarees from black card then fussy cut off the top bib part cutting through the middle making two front pieces. Once the character is built detail use a gold pen to detail his outfit.

Step Four: To change the fairy – Build the fairy as normal except her dress. Place the dress die onto a die cutting cutting plate placing the top plate half way allowing only the top part to cut through.

Step Five: Draw out and fussy cut the dress shape as shown in the photo below, then fussy cut another dress piece to sit behind the legs. Die cut an collar piece to add dimension. Once built add a pair of tiny gold earrings.

Step Six: Die cut the letters o l e ! three times, twice in black card then once into gold, glue them all together creating a 3d sentiment.

I hope I have given some inspiration to have a go at changing up the characters to suit your occasion, the possibilities are endless.

Happy crafting – Jackie

Fall Harvest Friends

September 9, 2021

Hi Friends, it’s EK. I don’t know about you, but I am ready for Fall. I am ready for the leaves to drop and the weather to turn into something that needs a sweater and maybe a scarf. At least for me, those days are still pretty far off, but I figured I could at least craft myself into the season. Today I have created a trio of Fall Harvest themed cards using Joset’s critter dies to craft these fall feeling designs.

Step One: Create the backgrounds. Die cut a circle mask using the Stitched Circles die set. Lay on your background to be a harvest moon. In a splatter box, spray a collection of fall inspired colors Distress Sprays onto some already damp Watercolor Paper. I used Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet and Shaded Lilac.

Step Two: Spray Distress Oxide along the top edge of the background. I used Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide. Remove the mask and head seat the background.

Step Three: Spray clean water into the ‘moon’ and let ink run into the white space. Dry. Press ink int any left over ink for a smooched look. Heat set.

Step Four: Repeat steps one through three with a different background color. Here I used Antique Linen, Mowed Lawn, and Forest Moss Distress Stain Spray and Bundled Sage Distress Oxide Spray.

Step Five: Repeat steps one through three for a third time using different colors. Here I sed Antique Linen, Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge Distress Stain Spray and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide Spray.

Step Six: Splatter each background with reflective shimmer ink. I used Perfect Pearls in both original and pewter.

Step Seven: Die cut the backgrounds with the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set.

Step Eight: Create Harvest trees. Using the Tree die set, die cut three trees out of cardstock. I used black, grey and blue cardstock for my trees.

Step Nine: Emboss each die cut three with a subtle color so the trees each have shine.

I used on the on the grey cardstock Distress Embossing Glaze in Rusty Hinge, on the blue cardstock Distress Embossing Glaze in Tattered Rose, and on the black cardstock on old pot of glitter vintage mahogany embossing powder.

Step Ten: Create the critters. Start by die cutting the critter out of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Here I used the Fox die set.

Step Eleven: Using Distress Ink, color the die cut pieces.

Step Twelve: Using a liquid adhesive, such as Kids Choice Glue, assembled the critter. I used the holiday hat trim from the die set to create a scarf for the Fox to wear.

Step Thirteen: Repeat steps ten through twelve with the Moose dies set.

Step Fourteen: Repeat steps ten through twelve with the Owl die set. I also used the holiday hat die in the set to create a scarf for this critter.

Step Fifteen: Adhere the background onto an A2 card frame using 10mm Clear Double Sided Tape. Adhere the tree to the background. Add a critter to the card. I used the blue background, the tattered rose embossed Tree and the blue toned Owl to the first card.

The green background got the glitter Tree and the Moose die set.

The orange background got the rusty hinge Tree and the Fox.

Step Sixteen: Using the Zen Sentiments stamp set, add a sentiment to each of the cards.

What do you think? Did these cards embrace the beginning of fall? Let us know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.

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

Just Chicken in

August 29, 2021

Hello all, Just chicken in again today with this fun farm yard card using Joset’s fabulous farm animal dies. This card is a ‘hello how are you doing’ kind of card, however you can easily switch the sentiment to suit any occasion.

Step One

Start by making the hen and rooster, here I have used coloured cardstock and gently inked around the edges before assembling all the pieces but you could easily make these using plain white cardstock and colour them with your preferred medium.

Step Two

Die cut a 2.25″ circle into a piece of scrap cardstock creating a circular template. Ink through the circle onto a 4×5.25″ a panel of white cardstock.

Step Three

Next place the inner circle piece over the sun and hold down firmly whilst inking the sky, ink approximately 3/4 of the panel saving enough room for the grass.

Step Four

Ink blend the grass into the sun and sky then use all three inks to blend the scene together swapping form one to the other until you have a nice blend. Use the yellow in a circular motion to create a hazy sun.

Step Five

Fix the panel the a top folding A2 card panel using 3d foam pads. Stamp the sentiment onto a banner shape then ink around the edges, attach all the pieces in place using more foam pads then finish off with a handful of eggs.

Thank you for joining me today and I hope I have inspired you to have a go!

Happy crafting

You’re so cute!

August 28, 2021

Today I made this cute whale that I combined with the lovely papers from Modacrap. I love the paperpads. They are so cute and colorfull. And collerfull is what I love!

For this card I used a slimline die. This die is from the new Planner Essentials set 41 – Rounded Corners Page. At first take this part of the die and your basepaper. In this case I took the paper with the whales in blue and red. The frame is also from the same set. The frame I made only in the soft finish cardstock because the background is already so colorfull.

On the back of the frame you can make two squares in different colors. For these squares I used papers with a bit of a calmer print as I’m planning to add the whale on one squares and a text on the other.

Than I took some brown cardstock on the back of my base slimline. I added some jute twine between the background paper and my cardstock. I left the jute a bit longer than my background so it would stick out on both end. You can make the frame stick out on the right side as well for a playful effect.

And then comes my favorite part of the card! A cute die from the collection of Joset. This time I choose the whale. He is so cute and matches so pretty with the paper. The whale I collered with Distress Ink. I used weathered wood for his body, stormy sky for the water splashes and fired brick for the mouth of the whale. I adhered the whale to the left square.

On the right side I made the word whale with the letter dies blackboard alphabet. This is one of my favorite dies. You can combine it with so much dies on so many creations.

Finally I added some decoration. In the corner a steering wheel and lifebuoy. These are parts from the Whale and the Octopus sets. On the right side of the frame are two holes, here I added some jute twine. It mached with the colors of the card.

I had fun creating this card and hopefully I inspired you to make your own version!
