Welcome to my April post! Samantha here and today I’m sharing a card using a crafty item I generally don’t use as much as I wish I could! STENCILS! … Hope you enjoy today’s card tutorial.
Step 1: Using Soft Finish Card Stock (Silver Grey) cut a card front measuring: 10.5cm x 14.5cm
Step 2: Position the stencil over the card front and secure with tape.
Step 3: Use a blending tool to blend ink onto the stencil through to the card front. Apply a generous amount.
Step 4: Use a new blending tool to blend a second ink colour onto the stencil. Apply a generous amount.
Step 5: Use a new blending tool to blend the final ink colour onto the stencil. Apply a generous amount.
Step 6: Adhere card front to an A6 card base.
Step 7: Take a piece of black cardstock and die cut the Labels 1 die. Using embossing ink stamp the sentiment – from General Sentiments clear stamp set then apply a generous amount of white embossing powder. Heat to set the embossing powder.
Step 8: Trim the sentiment and adhere using foam tape to the side of your card front.
Step 9: Embellish the card with clear sequins and a twine bow.

EK here! I am just loving the new Asian inspired release from Joset. It has been so much fun creating a different style with these fun dies and stamps and today, I have one more card to share with you today.
Step One: Die cut all the pieces from 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock using the new Symbol Background die and Panda Bear die. Trim a piece of Rust Soft Finish Cardstock to 5.75×5.75 inches.
Step Two: Color the Panda die cut pieces with alcohol markers.
Step Three: Assemble the panda using some Kids Choice Glue.
Step Four: Die cut a circle from the center of the rust cardstock using the Frame It/Stitched Circle die set.
Step Five: Trim a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock to 6×12 inches, score and fold to create a 6×6 inch card frame. Adhere the rust cardstock to the card frame using some 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Six: Adhere the panda into the open circle.
Step Seven: Adhere the Symbol Background die cut onto the left over die cut circle.
Step Eight: Score and fold the circle at 3/4 and inch and add some 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive to create an interactive flap.
Step Nine: Attach the flap onto the card frame cover the panda.
This will leave you a fun flap opening to reveal the panda bear inside!
Step Ten: Add a sentiment using the Bear Hug stamp set.
I just love how simple this interactive card is to create. Thank for peeking in today, and make sure you check out the whole new line of stamps and dies from Joset.
Hello welcome! Anyone excited about Christmas and counting down? I know… perhaps it’s still a little bit too early but at least I’m all organised in the Christmas card department with this adorable Penguin stamp.
Step 1: Adhere 10mm and 6mm Double Sided Adhesive Tape to purple card stock. Trim into strips. Remove the release sheet, apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (in Lavender). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
Step 2: Cut strips from different shades of purple cardstock.
Step 3: Adhere the strips to white paper measuring 9cm x 9cm.
Step 4: Trim off excess strips, then die cut the Large snowflake die.
Step 5: Stamp and die-cut the penguin.
Step 6: Colour the penguin in your preferred colouring medium.
Hello Samantha here – today I am sharing a card I created using Joset’s Geometric Background die. I had recently used this die to create a simple background for a Halloween card. I wasn’t looking for any particular shape but when I saw the heart I knew I had my next card idea!
Step 1: On black cardstock, die cut the Geometric Background die.
Step 2: Remove all the negative pieces and adhere the Geometric backgound to black cardsock.
Step 3: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to the back of pink card stock.
Step 4: Die cut the Geometric Background die.
Step 5: Repeat steps 3 and 4 with pattern paper and speciality cardstock.
Step 6: Use the negative pieces to fill in the heart shape.
TIP: Mark areas on of the Geometric heart to note which pieces will have Silk Microfine Glitter.
Step 7: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to the front of black card stock. Die-cut the Geometric Background then remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer of the negative pieces marked in the image above.
Step 8: Apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (in Fruchsia) to the selected pieces. Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Adhere these pieces into their negative spots.
Step 9: Heat Emboss the sentiment.
Step 10: Optional: Add machine stitched details. Adhere card front to an A6 card base. Embellish card with a twine bow and sequins.
Autumn is here, but the weather sure isn’t cooperating! There should be oranges, purples, browns, trees showing their beautiful Fall colors, but so far Florida hasn’t had any crisp days.. yet!
Today’s project is a 6 “x 6 “ card. For the background I used some white texture paste and added just a bit of re-inker to make the soft green. Then spread it over a stencil I have, which adds some dimension.
The flowers: Back-eyed Susan’s, Love In The Mist and Coneflower went into the Galvanized Bucket (Modascrap Wood Effects Paper) I found a great wooden button at Hobby Lobby for the handle.
For fillers, I used the Frosty Fern, Wheat Sheath and Autumn Leaves.(I brushed a coat of Diamond Glaze on top of the leaves for some shine) The words are from the “Little Words That Mean A Lot” Stamp Set, and are very apropos here in Florida. We’ve been having rainy days for months! And, of course..there she is…the Lady Bug!

I hope you enjoy this season and are inspired to keep ‘gardening’ year round!
