Happy Halloween and Thanksgiving!

October 31, 2021

Happy Halloween, ECD Fans! Karen here today. To celebrate Halloween, I made a card to celebrate the next big thing – Thanksgiving here in the U.S. And there’s an ADORABLE Turkey now in the critter collection! I also used the new Hay Ride dies to create a cool cart. FuN!

I love creating the critters that are in Joset’s Design Collection. To start, I cut the pieces (using 101mm Double Sided Adhesive for the pieces on top. I then arrange them in the order that they will end up as it helps me to figure out what colors to use. For the Turkey, I used Copic markers: YR02, R14, G82, E13, E23 and C7. Then I put the critter together. For this particular critter, I decided that google eyes would be best!

I created the Hay Ride cart in the same way. I used Copic markers: Y26, E41, E44, YG63, YR04, YG17, YG07, YR24, Y06 and G40. I love the Fall colors.

I wanted to have a Stitched Circle on the front of my card, so I cut the background for my card front and then cut a Stitched Circle out of the middle. Since this piece is behind the patterned paper, it saves another chunk of paper!

And finally, I put it all together using some old Basic Grey paper from my stash. So fun! The sentiment is from the Autumn Words Sentiment Set. Thank you for stopping by today.

Craftily yours, Karen

Fall Fun

October 11, 2021

Karen here today. I’ve been having fun with the new Happy Harvest collection. For today’s cards, I tried to make cards with non-Fall colors just to see how it would turn out, and I really love it. The paper is from a collection that has been in my stash forever.

Omigosh, how cute is this Scarecrow! I absolutely adore him! I kept my card sketch pretty simple just adding a strip across the middle to add that sentiment from the Autumn Words Sentiment Set.

When I create these dies, I lay them out first just so I have an idea of where things go. (At the bottom of the first pic, it took me a few minutes to realize that was the sleeves and not a base!) The Copic colors I used were: Straw-Y21, Y23; Face-E000, YR14, C7; Shorts-BV31, BV34, Top-R81, R83, R21; Hat-E21, E23, G00; Birds-E44, and Stick-E25. The paper is 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock.

Super fun Turkey too! He is colored with E41, E43, YR65, R81, E33. I added a Stitched Rounded Square offset just slightly to frame him a bit.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Happy Harvest Tri-fold card

September 30, 2021

Hello everyone, it’s Alice here. Today I want to show you how to create this fun Happy Harvest tri-fold card using some brand new dies from the Halloween collection designed by Joset. As a base for the 3 panels I used the Planner Essentials Die 1868, Shapes, Frames & Words. On the background I made some clouds with a mask stencil and Distress Ink Oxide (Tumbles glass). For the panels I also used Planner Essential Die 1868 and some beautiful paper from Bella BLVD that are fantastic for Fall and Halloween projects.

I made a fence on all three panels. This one is from the Adventure Edges 2 set. The fences are cut from White Soft Finish cardstock and colored with Ground espresso Distress Ink. Exactly 5 posts of the fence fit on each panel.

I added a corn stalk on the outer 2 panels also cut from White Soft Finish cardstock and colored with Mustard seed and Crushed olive Distress Ink. For the roots I used Vintage photo.

In the middle I used the very cute scarcrow. For this one I used many different colors Distress Ink. All the colors I used you can see on the picture below.

I added the Happy Harvest sentiment just in front of the scarecrow. I stamps the sentiment on a little piece of White Soft Finish cardstock that I colored with Rusty hinge Distress Ink.

I added some leaves to each panel for decoration. I used the leave dies that are included in the Turkey die set for this.

Below you can see the finished card one more time. I hope that I inspired you with this project and I hope that you will have just as much fun with the new Halloween collection as I did. It’s so cool to combine all the different dies!

Halloween Turkey

September 22, 2021

Hii everyone,

It’s me Lisanne again. This time I show a little tag which I made with the new Happy Harvest. It is absolutely a great collection!

I started with some Distress Oxide Chipped Sapphire ink at the top of the tag. If you spray some water at the ink, the ink respons and give some beautiful background.

Than I made the grass line and the fench. Behind the fence are some pumpkins (Hay Ride, 1909). Love to colour this with some beautiful orange Distress Ink with a little bit of brown and green. Oh and than the crows at the pumpkins. I love that! The crows are from the Scarecrow (1907).

Now I can make the eye cather with the Turkey (1905). You can make the Turkey just normal and adhere it together with glue. But I want some dimension at this tag, so I but some foam pads between the feathers. In this die there is one feather. But if you trim this of in different layers across the lines, you can make these dimension into it.

Hopefully you like this small blogpost about this small tag. I’ve had a lot of fun making this tag.

Thankyou for visiting! See you soon!
