Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Lately I have been combining Joset Designs with Art Journal Product. I absolutely love that the Art Journal Dies and Stamps can be used on Cards and Scrapbooking. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 11” x 4 1/4”, score at 5 1/2” and fold in half for a horizontal top fold card. (A2)
Step 2 – Trim Red Cardstock to 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”. Place the circle stencil from the Pattern Stencil Pack on top of the Cardstock. Apply Texture Paste over the stencil using a spatula. Remove the stencil and let dry. Repeat this step to the other half of the panel. Let dry. Adhere the panel to the card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 3 – Trim Red Cardstock to 4 1/2” x 3 1/4”. Apply Distress Ink Aged Mahogany to the edges. Adhere to card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 4 – Diecut Create A Wreath using Green and Brown Cardstock. For added interest apply Craft Drops Metallic Gold to the Green foliage and Craft Drops White, Pearl Rose and Metallic Gold to the berries. Let Dry. Adhere to top of card using Kids Choice Glue.
Step 5 – Diecut Jack Frost and Winter Accessories (hat) in various colors of Cardstock. Assemble and adhere to card front using Kids Choice Glue.
Step 6 – Diecut Holiday Elf – Hers using various colors of Cardstock. Assemble and adhere to card front using Kids Choice Glue.
Step 7 – Stamp Joyful Wishes Sentiment (Winter Wishes & Snowflake Kisses) to the inside of the card using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. (Normally I add the sentiment to the front but I didn’t want to cover the scene I created.)
I absolutely love the snow texture scene I created using the Pattern Stencil Pack and I will be using them more to create backgrounds for my cards. Below you will find a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting! My next post will be in January so I want to wish you all Happy Holidays!!!
Hey Friends! It’s EK, and today I am playing around with the newly released Holiday Elf- Hers and seeing if I can play with her in ways beyond just the holidays. After all, there are a bunch more elves than just holiday elves. I thought I would play around and see if I could make her into a convincing woodland elf and with the help of the Mushroom House Folding Card I think I was able to come up pretty convincingly with that.
Step One: Die cut all the pieces (minus the elf’s hat) of the Holiday Elf- Hers die set and the stocking cap and trim from the Winter Accessories die set out of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Two: Using colored pencils, color the skin and hair of the elf. I used my Polychromos pencils.
Step Three: Color the elf’s clothing and stocking cap (from the Winter Accessories diet set) dark brown with colored pencils.
Step Four: Color the rest of the elf’s clothing a mid toned gray.
Step Five: Using Kids Choice Glue assemble the elf.
Step Six: Die cut the pieces of the Mushroom House Folding Card and some of the accessories out of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Seven: Using Distress Oxides color the mushroom card frame. I used a combination of Pumice Stone, Victorian Velvet and Frayed Burlap.
Step Eight: Using Distress Oxides color the natural elements. I used Rustic Wilderness for the grass, Wild Honey and Victorian Velvet for the flowers, and a combination of Hickory Smoke, Victorian Velvet and Frayed Burlap.
Step Nine: Using Kids Choice Glue, assemble the card. Using Joyful Wishes stamp set add a sentiment to the card.
How else do you think you could use the Holiday Elves all season long? Let us know in the comments below. Until then, Happy Crafting.
Karen here today sharing a couple cards made with the cutest elves ever! They are a brand new release here at Elizabeth Craft Designs and, at this point, can only be found in your local scrapbook stores. I decided to use them with some pretty non-traditional patterned paper I recently got.
In this first card, I used the Holiday Elf-Hers Die to create the little girl elf. All of the colored pieces are cut with 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. She is colored with:
Face: Copics E000, E00, R21 with C7 eyes and white gel pen
Hair: Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo
Clothes: Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean.
Snow Globe base: Tea Dye
Here’s a close-up to show her face. Isn’t she adorable?
The Snow Globe die is also new (available in stores)! I ran it three times. Once in White Soft Finish Cardstock (base), once in the pattern paper for the background and once in silver paper for the edges. How fun. The snowflake is from the Snow Globe Dies and is covered with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.
I used the same process to make the boy card but used the Holiday Elf-His Dies.
