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.
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!
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

It’s Sandy Diller with a fun card that would be perfect for sending to a child of any age. With all that is going on in the world – an uplifting message is always welcome.
Who wouldn’t love to find this cute little hero in their mailbox?
This is a slimline card that measures 9″ X 4″. Start with cardstock that is 9″ X 8″ – scored in the center.
Using the Phone Booth die set, assemble the phone booth leaving the door open. I used my label maker to add the word telephone but the Phone Booth kit comes with a stamp that could be used.
Using the Adventure Edges, cut a section of ground, I used green to make it look like grass. Then the inside of the phone booth was added.
Using the Prince die set, cut out the pieces needed to make the prince (or super hero). I used white Soft Finish Cardstock but you could easily use colored cardstock. I added all the colors I wanted using markers.
I trimmed off the bottom portion of the jacket and joined the two pieces together using a piece of scrap paper on the back. Trim off all the “fluffy parts” making a smooth line as shown with the arrows below.
Assemble the parts as shown above.
Add the cape and head – your super hero is ready to go on the card. I colored the inside of the cape with a darker red to make it appear to be shadowed.
Hello and Happy New Year 2021! It´s Sanna here again with my January project share. I wanted to create a winter themed greeting card for this month and used the cute Jack Frost die by Joset with Planner Essentials Christmas Figures tree die to create the winter scene.
Here are the steps to the card:
Step 1: Die cut a strip of white paper with Adventure Edges to create a DIY stencil from paper. Use it to ink the background could pattern onto a white card base. Step 2: Apply a Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut the tree from Planner Essentials 34 Christmas Figures die set. Make sure the adhesive is on the backside when die cutting the whole tree, but pointing towards you when die cutting the filigrane tree die piece. You will need the adhesive on top of be able to add glitter later. Step 3: Now die cut the Snowflake from white Soft Finish Cardstock (also add an adhesive sheet on the back here too for easier adhering). Also die cut a few snowflakes using the Snow Globe die set, but this time again make sure the adhesive is on top.
Step 4: Using Distress Inks, apply color to the tree and the snowman parts. I used tones: Gathered Twigs, Old Paper, Black Soot, Evergreen Bough, Salty Ocean and Spiced Marmalade. Step 5: Apply Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter onto the filigrane tree piece as well as the snowflakes.
Step 6: Adhere the green inked tree onto the card base and attach the filigrane, glittered tree piece on top. Now build the snowman together and adhere all pieces on place. Step 7: Now use the For You stamp set by Sue Smith in combination with Joset´s Winter Sentiments to create the sentiment: “Winter Wishes” and stamp that onto the bottom of the card with black stamp ink. Apply the glittered snowflakes onto the background and the card is done.
I´ve again recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch. I hope it gives you an even better idea on each and every step of this card.
I hope you enjoy this little card tutorial and get inspired to create fun wintery cards yourself! Wishing you all a nice January!!
Happy crafting, xxx, Sanna

Hello! Welcome – Samantha here. With Christmas done for another year I wanted to share a card that stretches the use of Christmas themed dies. I’ve partnered the Jack Frost die with Cute Winter Sentiment stamp to create this fun general card perfect for any time of the year.
Step 1: Create a card front using light blue card (Card Measurement: 10.5cm x 14.5cm).
Step 2: Using white soft finish card die cut the snowy ground using Adventure Edges dies. Adhere these to the card as shown below.
Step 3: Using a different shade of light blue die cut the three snowflakes from the Snow Globe die – adhere these to the card.
Step 4: (Optional) Add machine stitched details.
Step 5: Die cut all the Jack Frost pieces and assemble him onto the card front.
TIP: I enjoy adding texture to a card – using felt material was an great way to make Jack Frost look and feel like a fluffy snowman and it die cut perfectly with Elizabeth Craft Design dies.
Step 6: Stamp the sentiment, trim and using foam tape adhere it to the card front.
Step 7: Adhere the googly eyes. Die cut additional Jack Frost buttons to use as snow drops on your background.
Step 8: Embellish with some sequins, and a twine bow. Switch out the die cut Jack Frost paper buttons for some gems/enamel dots to add additional interest to the card.
Step 9: Adhere card front to an A6 card base.
Thank you for stopping by – I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that you get some time during the holiday season to continue using these beautiful Christmas themed dies for some not so Christmassy cards.
Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. With Slimline cards quickly becoming the go to size in card making I thought I would revisit product I already had in my stash originally intended for A2 size cards. I am so happy I did. I used the Holiday Birdhouse, Adventure Edges dies and the Joyful Wishes Sentiment Stamps. Below you will find the steps to create your own It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year! Slimline Card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 7″, score at 3 1/2″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Slimline)
Step 2 – Trim Gold Metallic Cardstock to 3″ x 8″. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 3 – Diecut Adventure Edges (cloud die) using a scrap piece of Cardstock. Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 2 7/8″ x 7 7/8″. Place the cloud diecut on top of the blank cardstock and using a Blender Brush apply ink to the edges. I used Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass for a soft subtle sky. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 4 – Diecut Holiday Birdhouse using Gold Metallic Cardstock for the ornament cord and Glitter Cardstock for the ornament lights. Assemble using tweezers and Kid’s Choice Glue. Diecut the rest of the Holiday Birdhouse images using various colors of Cardstock and assemble.
Step 5 – Stamp Joyful Wishes sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink to the bottom of the card front.
Step 6 – Adhere the ornaments to the top of the card front using Kid’s Choice Glue. Adhere the birdhouse using Foam Tape.
I hope you will give Slimline cards a try. It can be a little intimidating at first but once you do your first one you will love the real estate this size offers you. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
