Hi everyone, Katie here with todays blog post. When I received this set from Joset it automatically brought me back to some wonderful memories as a kid, picking daisy’s and collecting ladybugs. So today I wanted to create this super fun playful slim line card featuring Joset;s new collection “Bugs and Butterflies”. So grab a coffee and I will walk you through how I created this card.
Step 1: Cut your ladybugs from coordinating cardstock, the wings are cut from heavy vellum.
The flowers are cut from white and yellow card stock.
Ink all pieces before assembling with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, the cheeks are inked with Flamingo Distress Ink, I used a white gel pen for the dot in the cheeks. As per picture bellows.
Step 2: Choose your favorite slim line die, the one I used was from Photoplay. Next, I cut a piece of background paper and acetate to fit the card front and assemble. I like to use a bit of acetate as it creates a bit of a shimmer behind the card. then cut and fold your slimline card base.
Step 3: Next, attach your flowers and pop dot your ladybugs.
Step 4: Stamp your choice of sentiment from “Bugs and Kisses” and pop-dot to your card.
Step 5: Splatter your card with heavy acrylic paint.
Thank you for joining me with todays blog post, if you have any questions about my card please send me a message on Facebook Katie Porcina. Happy Crafting.

Next, I cut my card base and layers from the stitched rounded squares #1702. The background I inked the edges with some yellow ink, next I layered my card bases together. I adhered my basket, eggs, branches, flowers and pop-dotted my bunny and white flowers.
Last step: I always love to speckle, this time I speckled with Vintage Photo Ink.

Hi Everyone, Katie here thank you for joining me with todays blog post! I am super excited to show you this amazing new stocking die from Joset’s new Christmas Collection, and of course I am using a ton of glitter. So grab a cup of coffee or tea and lets get started!
Step 1: Cut your stocking from your favorite card stock, next selected a 3D embossing folder and run it through your machine to give it some dimension. Next, I took my Vintage Photo Distress Ink and lightly inked the 3D pattern.
Step 2: Next apply your 2-way adhesive onto your strip of white cardstock and cut your stocking trims. I then peeled back the adhesive backing and add your choice of glitter. I used green for this sample but on my card I used Cool White Microfine glitter. (There are so many beautiful glitter choices)
Step 3: After you have assembled your stocking, cut your card front bases.
Cut your white base 4 1/4 “x 5 3/4 “and stamp your sentiment on the bottom from Joset’s new Holiday sentiments, I used “Christmas Magic”. Cut your green mat 4 1/2″ x 6″ , red mat 4 3/4″ x 6 1/4″ and your card base 6 1/2″ x 10″ scored @ 5″ 1/2″. Assemble your card as per the picture.
Step 4: With the same process by applying adhesive to card stock I cut out some holly leaves and berries from Winter Greens and applied glitter.

And we are done, I hope you enjoyed todays block post! I look forward to my next months post using Joset’s new Character Mrs. Clause creating a super cute baking Planner Essential page.

Step 1: Cutting and scoring your card base – start with a heavy card base and cut your paper 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, along the 8 1/2 side score at 2″, 3 1/8″, 5 3/8″ and 6 1/2. Your designer paper cut 2 @ 1 3/4″ x 5 1/4″, 2 @ 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ (Sides) and 1 @ 2″ x 5 1/4″ (front panel). Next I inked my papers with Vintage Photo Distress ink and set aside.

Hi friends, thank you for joining me today with this super cute pop-up shaker card. Its so hard to capture all the glitter on this card with a photograph so I am hoping you make your own so you can see how amazing this glitter that Els uses all the time really is. So lets get started!
Step 1: Attach a piece of your adhesive sheet to your heavy weight cardstock (Keep the backing onto your adhesive sheet as this is where you will add your glitter) cut your card front to 4 3/4 x 5 1/4, next with your adhesive side facing up , take your large snowflake die from the Art Journal Christmas Special and cut out the snowflake from the center of your page.
Step 2: Peel off the adhesive backing so your front card base is sticky and add your glitter, you will be surprised how little it takes to cover your page. Tap off the extra glitter, then attach a piece of acetate to the back of your front base covering your snowflake.
Step 3: Next, add some foam tape to all four sides of the back of my snowflake page closing the gaps so none of my shaker bits come out, I removed three side of my foam tape and placed it on top my card base that measures 5 x 5 1/2, next I filled my shaker bits through the space where the adhesive is still attached to the foam tape, once I have enough bits I removed the backing and sealed my shaker card. (Please see picture above)
Step 4: Cutting the base of the card, Take a heavy white cardstock and cut your card base 5 1/2 x 11 and score along the 11″ side at 5 1/2 and 2 3/4 and fold up your score lines as per picture above.
Step 5: Next attach your snowflake shaker to the bottom part of your folded card, this creates an easel style card.
Step 6: Out of your favorite cardstock cut out Jack frost from Joset’s collection, once you have assembled and inked your snowman, speckle with heavy body white paint.
Step 7: Attached your snowman using pop dot to the top of the card base, I also added a few jewels.
Step 8: I added a greeting from Classic Christmas Sentiments #CS101 and I cut out a few snowflakes from the Classic Christmas Collection kit and glittered my snowflakes. Next I pop dotted my greeting this creates a lip for your easel card.
I hope you enjoyed todays blog post and I am hoping you will join in and create a special glitter Christmas Card!
