In todays’ post it’s all about the new “Life is Better in the Farm” collection Designed by Joset. Who doesn’t love all these cute animals, the little farmer, tractor, barn and those fabulous farm accessories? If you haven’t seen this collection yet, make sure to check them out on the Elizabeth Craft Designs Website HERE. But first…let’s see what our talented designers created for you today!
Karen here today. I’m sharing a couple cards that I made using Joset’s adorable animals and the gorgeous washi tape! These cards would be great for Valentine’s Day or just as a reminder to that special someone in your life that you love them.
The Monkey die is definitely one of my favorites! I cut the monkey using brown and Kraft paper and added some cheeks and ears with Copic markers and a white gel pen. His eyes and mouth are colored with a black pen. I cut the pieces of him that are “on top” with 101mm Double Sided adhesive on the cardstock to make him easier to put together.
The sentiment is from the Safari Sayings stamps and is framed with a Stitched Circles and Dotted Scallop Circles die cuts. The card base is cut with the Stitched Rounded Rectangles.
I love how just a few pieces of the Reminiscence Washi Tape adds a little interest to the card. As you can see here, I also added a couple half-pearl embellishments. The little strip of paper is a “scrap” that I had left over from the Mystical Winter Papers.
And, oh my, the Raccoon die creates such a cute card! He is cut with black paper and 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock, which I colored with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. The sentiment is also from Safari Sayings. The card background on this card is cut with the Stitched Indented Dies and framed with a piece of black cardstock. I used the beautiful Artsy Scenery Washi Tape! On this one, the scrap of paper is from the Reminiscence Book.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Craftily yours, Karen

Hey everyone! It’s EK, and I am popping in with just a little bit of fairytale magic. Are you as in as much love as I am with the new Storybook Collection from Joset as I am? I am just loving the little bit of fantasy this collection is delivering, since I think we could all use a little break from reality. I am especially loving the two new Shaped Card Frames, and today I am playing around with the new Mushroom House Folding Card.
Step One: Die cut the piece of the Mushroom House Folding Card die set using 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Two: Blend ink onto the piece of the mushroom frame (there are three pieces). I used Distress Ink in Victorian Velvet and Seedless Preserves for the mushroom cap, Old Paper for the underside of the mushroom cap, and Antique Linen and Tea Dye for the step of the mushroom. Using 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the pieces together.
Step Three: Blend ink onto the accessories of the die set. I used Milled Lavender and Seedless Preserves for the door, window frames, flowers, and lock.
I used Iced Spruce and Mowed Lawn for the grass and the centers of the flowers. I used Scattered Straw and Tea Dye for the windows. The step and smoke pipe were blended with Hickory Smoke and Pumice Stone.
Finally, the mini mushroom was colored with the same inks as the larger card frame.
Step Four: Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the accessories onto the card frame. I could have stopped here, but I thought the little mushroom house needed an inhabitant.
Step Five: Die cut the piece of the Raccoon die set using 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Six: Blend ink over the pieces of the Raccoon die cut. I used Hickory Smoke on the dark gray pieces.
Pumice Stone was used to color the lighter gray areas.
Finally, Black Soot was used to color the darkest portions of the the raccoon.
Step Seven: Assemble the pieces of the raccoon using Kids Choice Glue.
Step Eight: Using both 6mm Double Sided Clear Adhesive and Kids Choice Glue, adhere the Raccoon to the card frame.
Step Nine: Using the new Once Upon a Time Sentiments stamp set, stamp a sentiment onto the card frame using black ink.
Do you like shaped cards as much as we do? To whom would you send a mushroom card to? Let us know in the comments below. Until then, Happy Crafting!
Karen here today from Craftily Yours! Today, I was inspired by sentiments, sentiments that I thought fit the time we are living in very well. The sentiments, of course, go very well with the amazing characters designed by Joset! I plan to send these cards out to friends who need or deserve some mail cheer!
Hi there! Samantha here, sharing with you a card using Joset’s Koala die. Koala’s are one of my favourite animals, so I was very pleased to finally have a play, and even more surprised how quickly the idea came together!
Step 1: Using a variety of green cardstock die cut the small leaves.
Step 2: Using kraft card die cut the tree trunk, and adhere this to a light blue square card (measurements: 10cm x 10cm)
Step 3: Adhere the tiny leaves around the tree trunk.
Step 4: Continue adhering the leaves until most of the blue area is full.
Step 5: On blue cardstock (measuring: 10.5cm x 14.5cm) die cut a large circle. Then adhere this on top of your tree.
(Optional: Add machine stitched details)
Step 6: Using grey, white and black cardstock – die cut the Koala.
Step 7: Assemble and adhere the Koala to your card front.
Step 8: Stamp the sentiment on blue card. Trim. Adhere to card front.
Step 9: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to white cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Green). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
Repeat step 9 using Silk Microfine Glitter (Spring Peridot).
Step 10: Die cut the small hearts. Adhered this to the card front.
I love how framing the koala on a tree really makes him the feature on my card! He is rather adorable!
Hi there! It’s Suzanne here today with a fun baby card for you!
Oh, my. There is nothing like a puppy! Puppy eyes are guaranteed to melt any heart. (But really it’s a little plan on their part to get what they want –– and it works!) You can’t get mad at this wee fellow when he knocks the frame askew!
Here’s Joset’s sweet Dog die set combined with some A Way With Words classics! It’s a celebration of Mark’s, Joset’s brother, new puppy who is to die for (the puppy that is 🙂 …)!
Here is how you can make this card for a new baby puppy dog!
