Autumn is Calling

November 11, 2021

Hey Friends! It’s Ek, and today I am totally embracing all things fall. I am not gonna lie, my favorite two holidays to craft for are Halloween and Christmas, but Thanksgiving is hands down my actual most favorite calendar holiday. The idea of stoping and joining hands with the people you love and giving thanks for all that you have is something that each year always makes my heart warm. But crafting for this holiday has not always been easy. However, with the release of Joset’s die collection this fall, creating for my favorite holiday has gotten so much easier. Today I am playing with the Turkey die set, and falling right into autumn.

Step One: Die set the Turkey die set from 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two: Using Distress Ink, blend color onto the Turkey body parts. I used Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo.

Step Three: Blend ink over the leaves and the rest of the Turkey accessories. I used Black Soot, Barn Door, Crackling Campfire, Ripe Persimmon, Scattered Straw, Shabby Shutters, and Peeled Paint.

Step Four: Using a liquid adhesive, such as Kids Choice Glue, adhere the Turkey pieces together.

Step Five: Using a black and white gel pen, fill in the eyes and add highlights.

Step Six: Die cut a background out of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Splatter Distress Ink in the colors of the leaves onto the background die cut. Using a piece of printed paper, such as one found in the Worn Wood paper collection, die cut it with the Stitched Rounded Square die set. Adhere both the background and the square die cut to a 6×6 inch card frame using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step Seven: Using a liquid adhesive, such as Kids Choice Glue, adhere the Turkey to the card frame.

Step Eight: Adhere the leaves around the Turkey with a liquid adhesive. Add a sentiment to the card by stamping fall themed sentiment from the Autumn Words stamp set. Finally add some Craft Drops to the card by adding fall colored Drops in Pearl Olive, Pearl Rose, and Metallic Gold.

I am so happy to have some crafting supplies that coordinate with Thanksgiving.

Let us know in the comments below what your favorite holiday is. Until then, happy crafting.

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I have a fun Holiday card to share with you using the Jack Frost dies and Classic Christmas Special Snowflakes dies and the stamp set. Below are 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 Inks of your choice using a Blender Brush. I used 3 inks in the same color family going light in the center and blending it out to a darker shade. Spray some water and pick up the excess with a paper towel and let dry. Adhere to card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Diecut Snowflakes from the Classic Christmas Special kit and adhere to the panel created from Step 2 using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 4 – Diecut Jack Frost in various colors of cardstock. Assemble using Kids Choice Glue.

Easy slimline Christmas card in rainbow colors

November 3, 2021

Hello everyone and happy November! It´s Sanna here again with another card tutorial share. This time I´ve got something fun to share: a clean and simple card that originated from last months card project´s leftover pieces. This is a fun way to use up paper strips and create cool looking cards. Hope you like the idea!

Here is how I created this card:

Step 1: I had some colored paper strip (see my October card tutorial share) leftovers from the previous cards, so I took the Classic Christmas Special Kit snowflake die and arranged the snowflakes on a slimline card sized piece of white cardstock and die cut them with my die cutting machine.
Step 2: I placed the die cut snowflakes aside and adhered the colored paper strips behind the negative snowflake areas to create the striped-snowflake-look.
Step 3: Next I took some pearlescent blue watercolor and added random color splatters onto the white area of the background for additional detail. You could also use regular watercolors here or add ink spray splatters, for example. Whatever you have available.
Step 4: Next arrange the die cut snowflake pieces into the center of the card in a row and adhere them on place.
Step 5: Take a kraft cardstock piece and stamp a Christmas sentiment – stamp comes with the kit – and heat emboss it with white embossing ink. Adhere on place with 3D foam for additional dimension.

This is such a fun way to make a cheerful card. By the way, you could also replace the inked paper strips with leftover patterned papers. That would also create a fun look! For additional information, I´ve recorded a short video to give you a better idea of the steps. Hope you enjoy it!

I don´t know about you, but I just love playing with this Classic Christmas Special Kit so much! See you again next month with another card tutorial.

Take care,
xxx, Sanna

Happy Halloween and Thanksgiving!

October 31, 2021

Happy Halloween, ECD Fans! Karen here today. To celebrate Halloween, I made a card to celebrate the next big thing – Thanksgiving here in the U.S. And there’s an ADORABLE Turkey now in the critter collection! I also used the new Hay Ride dies to create a cool cart. FuN!

I love creating the critters that are in Joset’s Design Collection. To start, I cut the pieces (using 101mm Double Sided Adhesive for the pieces on top. I then arrange them in the order that they will end up as it helps me to figure out what colors to use. For the Turkey, I used Copic markers: YR02, R14, G82, E13, E23 and C7. Then I put the critter together. For this particular critter, I decided that google eyes would be best!

I created the Hay Ride cart in the same way. I used Copic markers: Y26, E41, E44, YG63, YR04, YG17, YG07, YR24, Y06 and G40. I love the Fall colors.

I wanted to have a Stitched Circle on the front of my card, so I cut the background for my card front and then cut a Stitched Circle out of the middle. Since this piece is behind the patterned paper, it saves another chunk of paper!

And finally, I put it all together using some old Basic Grey paper from my stash. So fun! The sentiment is from the Autumn Words Sentiment Set. Thank you for stopping by today.

Craftily yours, Karen

Winter Wishes

October 27, 2021

Hello everyone, Alice here. Today I would like to show you another winter project. For this card I started working with the Igloo and the Pinguin dies both from earlier releases from Joset. I actually never made any winter creations before. I started doing this last year and I can tell you, it’s really great fun!

Let me show you how I created my card.

I started to die cut a star out of patterned paper. To cut the start I used the 1452 Fitted Stars set. I used ModaScrap papar as a base. The paper is from the “Let it Snow” paper pack.

I then made a pocket with the fuse tool for shaking material. The fuse tool is very handy for this. It takes some practice, but the end result is very useful. As shaking material I choose some playful penguins.

I made the pocket behind the patterned paper. I did this with double sided adhesive. Behind this whole I adhered an equally large sheet (15 x 15 cm) piece of Soft Finish Cardstock. Before making this one behind it, I made the penguin in the middle. What a sweetheart she is. She even put on her antlers.

In the front I made the igloo using the Igloo die set # 1569. I first cut the igloo out of white cardstock covered with Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheet. After die cutting I peeled off the lined of the tape and covered the exposed adhesive with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. This is one of my favorite product to use on almost any creation. Don’t forget to brush off any extra glitter and to polish the glitter with your index finger. This makes the glitter really shine.

I matted the whole with a basic blue paper and then again with soft finish cardstock. I added a banner right at the top of the card with the sentiment “winter wishes and snowflakes kisses”.

To finish the card I added a bow on the left right from the top to the bottom. I maade the bow with seambinding. I made this color with oxide spray Stormy Sky. When you heat this it wil crumble very nicely.

I hope I was able to inspire you today. See you again soon!

Playing with Vellum

October 25, 2021

Karen here today, sharing a couple cards I made using wet emboss technique on vellum. I know that this technique has been out there forever and ever, but I just forgot how pretty it can be.

My first card uses one of my favorite dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs – the Penguin. So cute, and so easy to make! He is cut with black cardstock and 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. The feet and nose are colored with YR14 Copic marker. I used a hat from the Santa die and colored it with R37. I cut the pieces with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive just to make things simpler to assemble. I also backed the Vellum panel with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to turn that panel into a sticker. (Then you can’t see the adhesive!) The sentiment (from the Classic Christmas Special Kit) is wet embossed with black. Some black Nuvo drops finished up this card.

For this second card, I used the snowflakes from the Classic Christmas Special Kit (and the sentiment too, embossed in gold). Again, I added 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to the back of the vellum before cutting it with a Fitted Circle die. It made adding it to the larger circle so easy. I added a Bead String with some White Craft Drops. I added some Gold Craft Drops to the snowflakes too.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Craftily yours, Karen

Spooky!

October 24, 2021

Hello and Welcome! One of my favourite reason why I love playing with dies (especially background dies) is how versatile they can be. Here I’m using the Spider Web Slimline Background die angled to create an A6 card. I’m using heaps of colour to contrast it against the black spiders and the angle of the card draws you into the spiders! Here’s how I made it…

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Adhere clear double sided adhesive to the back of several coloured pieces of card stock.

Step 2: Die cut the slimline die, repeat this for the remaining coloured pieces of card stock.

TIP: To avoid wastage think of other layouts that you could use the remaining die cuts for. As you are die cutting the slimline die 5-6 times, there is potential to create many more cards!

Step 3: Remove the adhesive backing and adhere the outline of the web to an A6 card front. Next, use the negative die cuts from the other pieces of paper, remove the adhesive backing, and adhere these in place as shown in the image below.

TIP: Adhering clear double sided adhesive to the back of each card stock before die cutting, save you time (and glue)!

Step 4: Continue to do this until all the negative space has been filled. Trim any excess over lapping card stock.

Step 5: Die cute 5x spiders. Adhere clear jewelry thread (15cm long) to the back of two spiders, add a foam dot, and then adhere another spider to hide the thread on the spider.

Step 6: Take the thread and adhere it to the back of your card front as shown below. Next adhere your card front to an A6 card base.

Step 7: Stamp the sentiment, die cut and adhere to the card front. Embellish the card, with enamel dots and adhere the last spider to the card front.

As you can see below the very spooky spiders can dangle making this a very simple interactive card perfect for Halloween or anyone who loves creepy crawlies!

Happy Crafting!

Smile

October 23, 2021

Hello all, Jackie here..

Today I am sharing a simple card design which would suit a number of occasions. I have changed the holiday elf into a little girl with a couple so simple fussy cuts. So lets get started.

Step One

Start by die cutting the face and boots. Fussy cut off the pointed ear tops and curly boots.

Step Two

Draw a few lines onto a scrap of cream cardstock then die cut the legs. Die cut all the other pieces and build up the little girl as normal.

Step Four

Stamp out and white heat emboss the smile sentiment then use the coordinating die to cut it out.

Step Five

Layer an A2 card blank with a white panel trimmed to fit slightly smaller. Attach a heart shaped piece of vellum then two pieces of patterned paper measuring approximately 1 x 4.25″ then fix the girl in place followed by the sentiment, finish for with a couple of enamel dots.

I hope yo have been inspired to create this little lady, you can have fun making her with different colour hair and clothes.

Happy crafting

Hi Card

October 22, 2021

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

To create my Hi Card, I’ve used a variety of the new dies from the Planner Essentials Collection as well as dies from the Sidekick Essentials Collection and Joset Designs. 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 Indented Rectangle out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Indented 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 another piece of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book 2. Die cut a 3 3/4″ Fitted Indented Rectangle out of one of the patterned paper. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Choose a piece of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book 2. From the Planner Essentials 37 – Letters & Numbers die, die cut the letters H & I out of the patterned paper.

Step Four. Next you’ll need a creamy piece of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book 2. From the Sidekick Essentials 5 die, die cut the & symbol out of the patterned paper.

Step Five. From the Planner Essentials 41 – Rounded Corners Page, you’ll need one of the tabs. Die cut the tab out of the same patterned paper you just die cut the & symbol out of. Distress the edges of the tab. Ink the edges of the tab using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Six. Fussy cut a tag, a herb piece and a tag out of the Reminiscence the Book 2. Cut the tag down to 2 7/8″. Distress the edges of each piece. Ink the edges of each piece using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Seven. Next, you’ll need to choose one of the note pieces from the Planner Essentials 21 – Note Pieces die. Die cut the note piece out of a piece of patterned paper from the Reminiscence the Book 2. Distress the edges of the note piece. Ink the edges of the note piece using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Eight. Adhere the 3 3/4″ rectangle to the 4″ rectangle. Adhere the 3 1/2″ rectangle to the 3 3/4″ rectangle.

Step Nine. Adhere the label 5/8″ from the bottom and 1/8″ from the right of the 3 1/2″ rectangle. Foam square the herb piece 1/4″ from the left and 1/8″ from the top of the 3 1/2″ rectangle.

Step Ten. Adhere the tab to the left side of the note piece as desired. Foam square the note piece 1/2″ from the top and all the way to the left hand side of the 3 1/2″ rectangle.

Step Eleven. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the tag 3/4″ from the left and 3/8″ from the top of the 3 1/2″ rectangle. Adhere the & symbol to the right hand side of the tag as desired. Adhere the H to the right hand side of the tag and adhere the I to the right of it.

Step Twelve. 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 Hi Card at home.
