A Little Holiday Sparkle

October 17, 2021

Hi Friends, it’s Sandy Diller here to share a fun take on a holiday card. Which holiday? Halloween of course! I know it’s not really a holiday but it should be. I simply love the colors and feel of Halloween with the cute images and the orange, purple and greens, my favorite colors.

I had a black panel on my desk that measures 3.50″ X 8.50″. It had already been stenciled and foiled so I decided to use it. If you do not have or use foil you could always use glitter or Shimmer Sheetz. Anything sparkly will work. This is a slimline card so the finished size is 4″X9″.

Most times I do not finish the inside of a card with stamps or die cuts but this time the occasion just called for a fun stamp on the inside as well as the outside. This stamp is from the Classic Christmas Special Kit but with all the shinny stars on this card the stamp was perfect. More shinny stars were added for some sparkly fun on the inside.

I used die sets that are both old and new cutting them all out of white Soft Finish Cardstock. Then all the pieces were colored with Copic Pens but if you don’t like to color, colored cardstock could be used or some simple ink blending could be done for a fabulous result. If you are a Copic user – I highly recommend the Soft Finish Cardstock, it blends beautifully. Although you will not see a purple, green or turquoise pumpkin in the pumpkin patch the added color is just right for this card.

All the elements were added to the front of the card and then the entire panel was added to a turquoise panel that measures 3.75″X8.75″. Happy Halloween from the Autumn Words set was stamped and heat embossed to finish off the front.

Thanks for joining me today and I will see you soon – until then – stay crafty,

Sandy

Mini Slimline Cow’s It Going? Card

August 2, 2021

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I have a simple card to share using the Cow, Adventure Edges along with the Stitched Ovals to create a frame. 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 – Diecut Adventure Edges (clouds) using a scrap piece of cardstock. Place on top of the card front and apply Distress Oxide Ink Tumbled Glass to the edge. Move it down and repeat until you have filled the entire card front.

Step 3 – Diecut Stitched Oval and Fitted Oval using White Soft Finish Cardstock to create a frame. Place it on the card front and using a pencil lightly mark the top of the inside oval. This will help for the placement of the stamp.

Step 4 – Stamp Life Is Better On The Farm sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Using the pencil as a guide you can shape the stamp on your stamping tool so it will stamp in an oval shape. Once the ink is dry you can erase the pencil mark.

Step 5 – Adhere the Oval Frame created from Step 3 using Foam Tape.

Step 6 – Diecut Cow in various colors of cardstock. I used White, Black and Tan. Assemble the cow head using tweezers and Kid’s Choice Glue then adhere to the card front using Foam Tape.

Step 7 – For added interest randomly adhere some Pearls.

Down on the Farm

April 18, 2021

Hello friends, it’s Sandy Diller here to share the new Farm Collection from Joset. These little critters are so much fun and so dang cute that it’s hard to stop making them. Today I’m sharing an easel card that shows off these great images.

I don’t know if a donkey can drive a tractor but it’s fun to think about.

I just couldn’t pack enough fun into the tractor so decided to make a little trailer to go with it so I could use even more of these charming characters.

To make the tractor and trailer you will need a large card. I made mine 5″X7″. The card base needs to be 7″X 10″ and scored on the 10″ side at 5″ and 7.5″ (shown in blue). The green panel is 6.75″ by 2.75 and then scored at 1/2″ on the long side. I used the adventure edges to make the grass by lining it up on the score line and then folding upward.

The white panel is 2″X 6.5 and then stamped using the “Life is Better on the Farm” stamp set.

The entire panel was popped up using double sided foam tape but this is a personal choice.

The panel was added to the bottom of the card with the grass section folded upward. This holds the easel portion that is shown above.

The tractor was cut from green (it can be any color you like) then edged with a darker green. For the trailer, simply cut a rectangle. round the bottom edges and add a thin strip at the top.

Add the wheels, I used one large and three smaller ones to make mine. Add some hay if you like.

On a panel made from white Soft Finish Cardstock ( 6.75″ X 4.75″ ). Clouds were added and then a green base followed by some hay bales.

I die cut some of the farm animals – the donkey and sheep were to be placed in the tractor/trailer looking over the edge so I didn’t need to assemble the entire animal but the rooster is another story.

The panel was completed with all the cute animals and the tractor (I popped them up with foam tape).

I hope you have enjoyed a little Hee Haw – Down on the Farm.

Mini Slimline Happy Easter Card

March 15, 2021

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. With Easter coming up I just had to make another card with the Bunny backside. It’s been a tradition since the die came out. This time I incorporated it into a Mini Slimline card which has become my favorite size at the moment. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish to 7″ x 6″, score at 3 1/2″ and fold in half for a horizontal top fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Diecut Adventure Edges (Cloud) on a trimmed piece of White Soft Finish measuring 3 1/4″ x 5 3/4″. Place it on the Cardstock to use as a stencil. Apply ink using a Blender Brush. I used Distress Oxide Ink Tumbled Glass. Adhere the panel to card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Diecut Forest Accessories using various colors of Cardstock. Adhere to card front using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 4 – Diecut Spring Basket using Pink Cardstock. Add some dots using a White Gel Pen.

Step 5 – Diecut Bunny in various colors of Cardstock. Assemble and adhere to the card using Kid’s Choice Glue. Don’t forget to add the Easter Eggs.

Step 6 – Stamp Spring Sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. (I cut apart my sentiment. Don’t be afraid to cut, this gives you more choices for placement and you can always put it back on an acrylic block the way it was intended)

This card can be used for several occasions by changing the sentiment and the Easter Eggs to another image (such as presents). Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Cards in candy colours

March 7, 2021

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here again today with another guest design team project share. For a couple of days we´ve had beautiful sunshiny weather here in Austria and I am very much in spring mood already. Thus, a set of easy-to-do, candy coloured cards is my project share for today.

The first card is very simple to do, but due to the used dies, still creates a lovely layered and detailed look.

Here are the steps for this card:

Step 1: Take a piece of each (yellow, light blue, grey, pink and light green) Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut one piece of the Junk Journal Extras dies in each colour.

Step 2: Now take the smaller flower dies from the Tropical Florals die set and die cut the flower with pink, yellow and grey Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step 3: Next adhere the die cut pieces onto a white card base overlappingly and arrange the flower to the upper left corner for decoration.

Step 4: Finally, take a piece of kraft carstock and heat emboss a sentiment with white embossing powder using one of the sentiment in the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 set. For additional decor, add a few craft drops next to the sentiment.

For the second card, you will additionally need a few stamp inks to create the background, but other than that, we are sticking to the same Tropical Flowers die set and the candy coloured cardstock selection.

Here are the steps to this card:

Step 1: Die cut a strip of paper with the Adventure Edges die and create a cloud background to a white card base with it by applying yellow and light pink ink using the die cut border as a stencil.

Step 2: After that apply some ink droplets with the light pink tone onto the background for a fun additional detail. Use a paint brush or a water tank brush for this purpose.


Step 3: Die cut two leaves and one flower with the Tropical Flowers die set from the same Soft Finish Cardstock tones used on the first card.

Step 4: Arrange the leaves and the flower onto the right lower corner of the card and adhere on place. Then add a stamped sentiment with black stamp ink and the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set.

Step 5: For finishing touches add a few Craft Drops to the background.

Also if you are not into pastel tones, feel free to try out this set in primary colours or in more neutral tones. Changing the cardstock colours will give you a totally different look!

I hope you enjoyed today´s card ideas and got inspired to play yourself! Have a great time crafting and see you again next month!
xxx, Sanna
