Life is Better on the Farm

April 12, 2021

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!

Lisanne Geerdink created this fabulous card using the Pig, Donkey, Hen and Rooster and Farm Accessories. The “Hee Haw!” sentiment is from the “Life is Better on the Farm” set. It really shows the fun on the farm.
Karen Ostergard created this adorable card using the Sheep die set and the “Life is Better on the Farm” Sentiments. This card would be great for a new born baby. Love the color scheme of this card. Karen colored the sheep perfectly to match with the patterned papers used.

Katelyn Grosart created this beautiful barn door card using the Barn die set. Love the Black and white combination that she picked to create the barn. When opening the doors you will find a sentiment saying “love grows here”. The flowers are from the Farm Accessories set.
So much fun going on in this card created by Annette Green. We often think about the busy life on the farm and this card shows exactly that. Maybe not a chicken driving a tractor but how cool would that be?! A great card with beautiful coloring!
Tanja Kabel created this cute card using the Farm Accessories and Adventure Edges dies. Her coloring is just beautiful and matches perfectly with the patterned paper used. Love this card!
Sandy Diller used the Barn die in combination with the Farm accessories and the chicken from the Hen and Rooster set. Love how she used the wood paper for the barn and the way she colored the chicken. A beautiful farm scene!
Marjolijn van Elsberg created these beautiful pages using a combination of dies from the Planner Essentials collection. Love how she added the chicken wire and the cut outs to the pages. The car is from Planner Essentials 16 and is a perfect add on to this farm theme.
Joseph Nguyen went all out in his project combining the Farm release with the beautiful flowers from Anita’s Fantasy Flowers collection. For the sentiment he used one of Suzanne Canon’s dies which fit the card so beautiful. Farm life is really one big family.
Last project for today is this adorable card created by Tina Guigui who used the Sheep die set in combination with the balloons and hat from the Party Accessories set. Love how she positioned the sheep like he is jumping in the air from excitement. A great birthday card!

Animals, Washi and Valentine’s Day!

January 20, 2021

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

September 14, 2020

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!

Koalaty Friend…

February 25, 2020

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!

Card Instructions:

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!

Happy Crafting!

Samantha

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!
