Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Happy New Year! I wish you all a healthy and happy 2023. This is my first blog post for the new year. I can’t believe it. The next holiday to look forward to is Valentine’s Day. Below you will find a card using the Gnomes Dies, Dotted Background Die and the Love Sentiments Stamps from Joset Designs.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish 110 lbs to 7″ x 6″, score at 3 1/2″ and fold in half for a horizontal top fold card. (Mini Slimline)
Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish 110 lbs to 3 3/8″ x 5 7/8″. Apply Inks of your choice using colors Fuchsia, Lt. Red, Lt. Orange and Yellow. Set aside to dry.
Step 3 – Diecut Dotted Background using a scrap piece of cardstock to use as a stencil. Place it on top of the panel created in Step 2. Apply Texture Paste Translucent Gloss, remove the stencil. Quickly add some Soft Microfine Glitter Cool Diamond before the Paste dries. This will secure the Glitter. Let dry then adhere to the card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 4 – Diecut Gnomes using White Soft Finished Cardstock 110 lbs. Color in using any color medium of your choice. I used Copics. Be sure to only use the same colors for your background. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 5 – Stamp Love Sentiments using Ink in a Fuchsia color. Place the Gnomes on the card front first before stamping to make sure the positioning will not hide the sentiment. Once the sentiment is stamped adhere the Gnomes using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 6 – Optional – For added interest apply some Shimmer to the glasses and flower center using a Shimmer Pen.
This card can be used for several occasions by simply changing the colors and sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I adore the new Monster Release from Joset Designs. It has 3 adorable Monsters and is a must have in your stash. I used the Monster 1, Party Time, Monster Hugs Sentiment Stamps and Dotted Background. Below is the steps to create your own card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7″ x 8 1/2″, score at 3 1/2″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Slimline)
Step 2 – Diecut Dotted Background Slimline using White Soft Finish. Insert the diecut back to the die but turn it and diecut again. There is very little overlap but that’s ok because it will be covered. Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 3 1/4″ x 8 1/4″. Place the Dotted Background diecut and with any color medium mark the center in the color you will fill. Remove the diecut and now color in a circle. You can use the diecut to make sure the whole circle is colored. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue and adhere to card front using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 3 – Diecut Monster 1 using Colored Cardstock or White Soft Finish and color in using any medium of your choice. I used Copics in order to create some dimension. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue and adhere to card using Foam Tape.
Step 4 – Diecut Party Time (Balloons, Party Horn and Party Hat) again in Colored Cardstock or White Soft Finish and color in. Assemble and adhere to card.
Step 5 – Stamp Monster Hugs Sentiment using Versamark, sprinkle White Embossing Powder and remove the excess, and heat set it with a heat tool. Trim it out and adhere to card.
This card was so much fun to make and will make any child happy to receive it. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
Hello friends, it’s Sandy Diller here today with a fun little card using the adorable Gnomes out for a Joy ride. I hope Santa doesn’t see them because he would put them on the naughty list for sure. I have to giggle each time I look at these little guys.
This is a 5″ X 7″ easel card so the base is 7″ X 10″ with a score in the center. Then another score line was added in the center of the card front so it can fold. Color was added to a third panel and then cut out using the Dotted Background die. The snowdrift was cut using the Long Adventure Edges and the added below the blue panel.
The panel with the snowdrift and sky were added to another white panel and then added to the card base – gluing only to the bottom portion of the front panel (below the fold).
The Jeep was cut and assembled. Using dies from the Train Cart set, lights were added. I cut the light strings from black and then added lights from white Soft Finish Cardstock that were colored with markers. The wreath is from the Reindeer die set and then decorated with Craft Dots. A bow was added just for fun. You can use any bow in your collection.
I just love these adorable gnomes so cut out 4 using different colors for their hats. For the driver I cut the steering wheel in half to make it appear that his beard was flying around the wheel. His hat was creased backward to make it look like it’s blowing in the wind.
For the gnome driving the jeep I cut the hands from the die set and then cut the finger off making a rounded hand to hold the wheel. A little pink ink was added to the hands
A greeting was stamped on a panel with another snowbank. A crease was added near the top to hold the front panel open. This panel was added to the inside panel of the card and attached only to the crease line. This card stands for display and is so much fun but it also folds flat for mailing.
Now the only thing left is to add the little details like the gifts falling from the jeep and the strings of lights.
Wishing all of you a most joyous holiday season and a happy new year,
Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Do you like Gnomes because Joset Designs new Gnomes dies are so adorable. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7″ x 6″, score at 3 1/2″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)
Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish to 3 1/2″ x 6″. Apply ink using a Blender Brush. I used a Teal Blue color and started light in the center working out to the darkest shade at the edges. I sprinkled water as the ink reacts to water creating a snow effect. Diecut Dotted Background using the panel created. Even though this die is for a regular slimline size I used it to create a background for a mini slimline. Adhere to card front using Kid’s Choice Glue.
Step 3 – Diecut Gnomes in various colors of cardstock. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue. Stamp Classic Christmas Sentiment using versamark on the female Gnome dress. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder, remove the excess and heat set it with a Heat Tool. Adhere the Gnomes to card using Foam Tape.
Step 4 – Diecut Sleigh (layers for the tree) using Green Cardstock. Assemble using Kid’s Choice. Diecut Snow Globe (bow) using Red Cardstock and adhere to the top of the tree using Kid’s Choice Glue. Optional – Apply Distress Grit-Paste to add some sparkle and texture to the tree. Let dry. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.
Step 5 – Diecut Santa’s Sleigh (presents) in various colors of Cardstock. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue and adhere to card using Foam Tape.
