Forever Friends

October 2, 2023

Hello again everyone, Jackie here with todays inspiration. I actually made this card some time ago for a very dear friends birthday, I have used characters from past sets but you could easily use any of Joset’s characters for this design.

Step One:

Start by creating a watercolour background panel using a piece of watercolour paper and loosely paint a blue wash. Next Die cut a leaf shape into a piece of cardstock and once the background is dry use this to stencil two leaves in the centre.

Step Two:

Die cut and ink two more leaves in a different design then fix them on top of the stencilled leaves.

Step Three:

Build the characters adding some inking to the edges, add finer details using a white gel pen. Attach the panel to a top folding A2 card blank using 3d foam pads.

Step Four:

Add the sentiment of your choice then finish off with a few tiny die cut daisies.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you. If you haven’t already got the raccoon and giraffe dies they are still available on the ECD websites. Happy crafting – Jackie x

Joy tags for Christmas

September 28, 2023

Hi all, Sylvia again here for you on the blog. Time flies, don’t you think? Before you know it, it’s Christmas again and this year I decided to start my Christmas preparations early (also because I have a vacation coming up in November, so less time to prepare). For today I would like to show you how I created some Christmas gift tags, using items from both Joset’s and Annette’s collections, because they combine great! Let’s get started shall we?

step 1: find a piece of coloured cardstock slightly wider than the word Joy. Tape the word die (including the inner circle on the O ) on the bottom edge of your paper and run it through your machine, but NOT all the way!! Make sure the top of the letters are not totally cut and are still attached to the paper. I like to run it through about 75% so that you can just barely see the “v” shape in the centre of the letter Y.

step 2: pick the 3rd largest tag from the nested tags set, slide the bottom part under the letters (so they won’t be cut off) and run it through your machine again. You might wanna handcut a bit in between the letters. Now you have a tag with the word JOY at the bottom edge.

step 3: decorate the tag to your liking with stamps and/or dies. As an example, I made the green tag with Mr. and Mrs. Claus and the blue one with Jack Frost. Finish the tag off with a nice piece of ribbon or twine.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask, I’d be happy to help you out. Have fun preparing for Christmas!

Happy crafting!

Caterpillar to Butterfly

September 26, 2023

Karen here! I love all of Joset’s critters….so when it’s time to create a birthday card or two, I reach for the critters first. The new bugs are adorable. I am showcasing two birthday cards I made. One is for the cutest granddaughter anywhere, and the other is for my sweet sister-in-law!

First off, the card for my sister-in-law using the really cute Butterflies. I used the new Beautiful Brights paper for the butterfly (except the body which is White Soft Finish Cardstock. I put it on a Stitched Rectangle die cut from the Pretty Pastels paper. The little banners in the corner are from a retired set. I embellished the card with a few of the Floral Minis also cut from the Beautiful Brights paper. The sentiment is from the Bugs & Kisses set.

I decorated the inside with another Stitched Rectangle die cut (with a stripe of Beautiful Brights Paper) and another sentiment from Bugs & Kisses.

The card for my granddaughter uses the sweet Caterpillar die, more mini flowers, and the sentiment for her birthday!

Thank you for stopping by!

Craftily yours, Karen

a bunch of hocus pocus

September 25, 2023

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here on the blog today. Today, I am using the cute caterpillar die set from the Bugs and Butterflies collection.


Cut and assemble the caterpillar from the Caterpillar die set (for mine, is used some of the Pretty Pastels cardstock). Cut the witch hat, caldron, and spoon from the Halloween Accessories die set. Cut the second largest rectangle from the Indented Stitched Rectangles die from blue cardstock. Cut a slimline card base from black cardstock measuring 7″ x 8 1/2″ and score at 3 1/2″. Cut a card layer panel from green cardstock measuring 3 3/8″ x 8 3/8″. Cut a layer from white soft finish cardstock measuring 3 11/4″ x 8 1/4″. Cut a green grass piece from the Adventure Edges die set. Cut and assemble the “Hocus Pocus” sentiment from the Panner Essentials Halloween Set 3.


Select varying shades of blue ink, a yellow ink, and a black ink of your choice. Starting with the yellow ink, blend the ink to the right side. Using your lightest shade of blue ink, blend that around the yellow ink, leaving the yellow untouched. Take your next darker shade of blue ink and ink the rest of the cardstock. Lastly, go around the edges with black ink.

Using light green Distress Oxide ink, blend over the yellow ink which allows for a nice green glow from our caldron. Using white ink/paint, lightly splatter the white paint onto the card to simulate stars in the night sky.

Adhere your grass piece to the inked card panel. Afterward, adhere the entire panel to your green card layer.

Ahere your caterpillar, caldron, and sentiment to the card panel

Adhere the card panel to your slimline card base and your card is completed.

Good cluck

September 20, 2023

Hii everyone,

I hope you’re all doing fine. Today I’m here to share a new small project with different collections from Elizabeth Craft Design. This week is the release of the new florals collection. I used the basket from one set for the cute ducks.

For the base I used the Stitched Indented Rectangle, kraft cardstock and paper from the Pretty Pastels paperpad. The edges are inked with Distress Ink Frayed Burlap.

I made the basket from the Floral Foliage 1 with Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink. I used some small fasteners from Tim Holtz to make it look real.

At the top I did some inking with blue so it looks like water.

I made the cute ducks and cornfields also from Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink. The smaller ducks are in the basket in the water.

At the top I did some stamping with the life is better on the farm stamp. I realy like the fishtail banners with stitching. They are perfect for the stitched rectangle.

I hope you like this post and got an idea with the basket.

Thankyou for visiting and see you next time!

Kind regards,

Lisanne Geerdink

Dreams can come true

September 18, 2023

Hello all, Jackie here with todays super simple inspiration which is perfect for those times when you need a card in a hurry. I have to say that this little guy has the most infectious smile!

Step One:

First I created a circular stencil from acetate using and a 3″ or 7.5cm circular die. Place the stencil onto a piece of white cardstock cut slightly smaller than an A2 (US) or A6 (UK) then use a blending tool to ink the centre.

Step Two:

Once the ink has dried off a little add a line of white gel pen just around inside edge, then round the top corner using a punch.

Step Three:

Build the Grasshopper as normal except you will need to move his head forward slightly so that he sits more upright on his leaf. Add ink around the edges of each piece before you glue them together to add character and dimension, you can also add a few white gel pen dots to his cheeks for a cute look.

Step Four:

Add a black line around the edge of the circle with a few squiggles adding a bit more detail to the background.

Step Five:

Finish off with the sentiment. I have white embossed onto black cardstock which is my favourite, I chose follow your dreams as he looks like he is hopping off into the sunset! But there would be a good few different sentiments that would work just as well.

That’s it for today, Thank you for reading and I hope you pop by again next time! Happy crafting –

Ombre Butterfly

September 11, 2023

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here on the blog today. The Bee dies set in the new Bugs and Butterflies collection is so adorable. I could not wait to play with it.


Cut two sets of wings and the wing overlay out of colored cardstock from the Butterflies die set. From black cardstock, cut the butterfly body and antennae. Cut the word “happy birthday” from Everyday Words die set out of patterned cardstock. Cut the “happy birthday” shadow layer from Everyday Words die set out of black cardstock. Cut one strip from black cardstock measuring 1 1/4″ x 5 3/4″. Cut another strip from patterned cardstock measuring 1″ x 5 3/4″.

Using dark purple ink, ink the edges of one set of butterfly wings. For the second set of wings, ink using using blue, medium purple, and dark purple inks in an ombre pattern. For added depth, you can ink the edges with black ink. Using the same blue ink, ink the overlay pieces. The colors I used were Villainous Potion, Wilted Violet, and Salty Ocean Distress Inks.

For added shimmer, spray the overlay pieces with a shimmer spray. For mine, I used Distress Mica Spray Stain.

Adhere the overlay pieces to the ombre pieces. Then use a foam dot on one end of the wing and glue on the end of the other end, adhere the wings together

Using a Sakura Souffle gel pen and white gel pen, add pen details to the butterfly body. I also chose to cut off the legs. Adhere “happy birthday” to the shadow layer.

Adhere the body to the wings. Adhere the antennae to the body. I chose to use a clear Sakura Glaze pen on the antennae and a red Sakura Glaze pen on the mouth.

Adhere the patterned cardstock strip to the black cardstock strip

Adhere the strip piece to the card panel and then trim off any excess

Adhere the butterfly and the “happy birthday” sentiment to the font of the card.

Use the honeycomb as a stencil and ink the honeycomb patterned cardstock that measures 2 3/4″ x 4″

Joset Designs Planner Essentials Sidekick Essentials Soft Finish Cardstock

Cozy winter

September 6, 2023

Hii everyone,

Here is a new blogpost from me. I’m totally in the Christmas Mood. A little while ago I made a Christmas Foodtruck during a Facebooklive. Today I made an another truck for the Christmas Season. At this truck you can buy your Christmas tree in different sizes.

I started with the truck from the Foodtruck dies. I used paper from the Beautiful Brights and Pretty Pastels. I also colored some pieces with Distress Ink and Soft Finish Cardstock. In the truck I adhere a table and a Christmas tree. I also made a cash desk.

The wheels are from a stamp from the Planner Essentials ‘cozy days’. The trees on top of the truck are from the Sidekick Essentials.

The gnome bought this year a small Christmas tree. The gnome is made with Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink.

The trees fits perfect in these milk cans. I wish I have this at my home. The milk cans are from the Farm Accessoires. I die-cut 8 milk cans. I adhere the top of 2 milk cans together so it can stand.

And at least this signboard. I also die-cut this part 2 times so I can make it stand.

When you put everything togehter, you get this little scenery. Now you can understand that there are more possibilities with the truck for this festival. So soon you will see more.

Thankyou for visiting and see you the next time!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Have A Bee-Utiful Day A2 Card

September 5, 2023

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. The new Bugs and Butterfly Collection is so much fun to play with. The Bee is just adorable and I pulled out my old Honeycomb die to create my background. If you don’t have the Honeycomb die in your stash then it can be substituted with the Layered Honeybee dies. Below are the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold side. (A2)

Step 2 – Diecut Honeycomb and use the negative as a stencil. Place it on top of the card front and apply ink using a blender brush.

Step 3 – Diecut Bee in White and Black Cardstock. Using a blender brush apply Yellow Ink on the White Cardstock. For the flower and honey pot diecut in White Cardstock and use inks. Or if inking isn’t your thing then diecut in various colors of cardstock. Assemble and adhere to card front using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 4 – Stamp Bugs & Kisses sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

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