You set my heart on fire

June 23, 2022

Hii all! It’s me Lisanne with a new blogpost. So today I want to share this fire bus card. Sometimes you get an idea and it works out well, that’s what I had with this card.

So I started with the background. I die-cut the biggest Stitched Intended Square (1698) and coloured this with Distress Oxide Ink Tumbled Glass. First I blend it and after that I dipped the card into the wet ink on my sheet. Now I can make different layers. The last layer is made with Distress Ink Tumbled Glass. I love all the different layers just with one colour.

Here you can see a close-up picture.

I did the same for the grass. I used the Slimeline Adventure Edges (1925) and coloured this with Distress Oxide Ink Mowed Lawn. Love those splatters.

For the next step I started with the Retro Bus Kit. I want to make it as a firebus. The base is coloured with Distress Ink Barn Door. Also for the bus I used Black Soot, Prize Ribbon, Fossilized Amber and Hickory Smoke. I made the stripes with the pieces from the suitcase.

I adhere the stripes before I added all the other layers so you covered the edges.

The light at the top of the bus is from the Fire Accessoires. For this card I used more pieces, like the ladder, pawn and the helmet.

I also made the Elephant, he can bring more water to the fire.

Than it is time to adhere everything together. Then I saw a spot where someting is missing. I missed the splatters water, this looks realy fun I think. The Elephant needs his wiper to clean the window.

At least I stamped the sentiment ‘You set my heart on fire’ at the stitched banner. And coloured the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

And here is the last close-up picture. I’ll hope you like this card as much as I do. I had a lot of fun making this.

Thank you for reading!

Kind regards Lisanne

Splatter cow

June 11, 2022

Hi everyone, it’s my turn today to share my latest design with you all. I do like to make all sorts of styles in cardmaking but my most favourite is the more clean and simple style, here we have a simple card that fits that theme perfectly.

Step One:

Using a sheet of white card and some watered down black acrylic paint, splatter the whole sheet then set aside to dry. The bigger the brush the bigger the splatters.

Tip: Place the white card inside a cardboard box to contain the splashes.

Step Two:

Die cut the cow mostly using the splattered sheet see image below for all the different pieces, ink the nose and udder using distress ink spun sugar and ink around the white edges using black ink.

Step Three:

Attach a panel of splattered card measuring 5.5 x 1″ to the front of a top folding A2 card black.

Step Four:

Trim another panel of white card measuring 5.5 x 3.5, attach a strip of bright pink card to the reverse side allowing approximately 1/8th to show at the edge. Fix this panel to the card front using 3d foam pads.

Step Five:

Heat emboss the sentiment onto black card using white embossing powder and a heat tool, then trim the sentiment down to a smaller strip before fixing toward the bottom of the card front using more 3d foam pads.

Step Six:

Add the Cow using more 3d foam pads then fix a few enamel dots or gem to finish off.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you have been inspired to try a clean and simple style of cardmaking. Happy crafting – Jackie x

Take it easy

May 26, 2022

Hi all! I have a new planner page to share with you. I’ve made the right side another time so now I need to make the left side. When I make pages next to each other I use the same colors and the same elements. For this page I used the new Special Kit ‘Suitcase’, some Planner Essentials stencils, Planner Essentials dies and the cute Octopus from Joset.

For this page I used some older dies and Planner Essentials 1 with a tab at the top. I used Paint On Denim paper for this part. Then I used the dies from Planner Essentials 29 as layer. For this piece I added some structure with the newest Planner Essentials Stencils and Distress Oxide ‘Walnut Stain’.

Before I adhere this part at the base I gave the sides some Distress Ink Frayed Burlap. All the pieces I used are inked with the same color. At the right side I added a strip from an older die.

The next step is making the suitcase. I need 2 suitcases for this card because I want to open the suitcase.

As you can see I added a blue wave at the bottom of the suitcase which is included in the kit. I made a score line in this die so you can adhere this at the back and front of the suitcase.

So back to the front. First I made some structure again the Planner Essentials Stencils and Distress Oxide Ink Stormy Sky. Then I made the boat and the suitcase straps. To close the suitcase I used a piece of hemp cord.

Then the inside of the suitcase. At the top I made a little pocket with on top the new stamp from CS269 which is in the suitcase. I also used some leftover pieces and a little tab.

At the bottom I used the same colors.

For this part I used the Octopus with his wheel and also stamp CS269. I stamped ‘take it easy’ in 2 pieces so you can make it smaller.

Before I adhere the suitcase at the page I made something behind it. I used the fishtail dies from the suitcase kit. Behind this dies I put some elements from the Reminiscene the Book 4 but also some dies which I kept from other projects, like the Photo Film Slides and the structure die.

Here you can see the whole page when the suitcase is folded out.

I hope you like this page. I had a lot of fun making this page.

Thank you for reading! See you soon!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink

Hip Hip Hooray!

May 25, 2022

Hello Everyone.. Jackie here today with my latest design using Joset’s wonderful dies. I have been inspired by the Queens Platinum Jubilee celebrations soon to be here in the U.K. but this can easily be switched up to suit any occasion.

Step One:

Create a frame using the stitched indented square dies by nesting two together secured with a little piece of tape then die cut out a black frame. The outside of this frame measures 12x12cm

Step Two:

Cut a Square of gold glitter card measuring 12x12cm, draw a square on the reverse side measuring 10x10cm then carefully cut this out creating another frame.

Step Three:

Next take a 15x15cm textured card blank (or smooth if you prefer) then stamp out the ticker tape mainly in the centre then softly colour with coloured pencils.

Step Four:

Add the glittered frame first at a slight angle using 1mm foam pads then add the black frame on top again with a slight angle.

Step Five:

Build the characters in the colours of your choice, I have added detail to the shield using a white gel pen and also white dots on their eyes. Fix them to the card front using 2mm foam pads.

Step Six:

Add a Sentiment to the left hand side, If you don’t have a sentiment for your occasion then you could hand write one yourself.

That’s it for this time, I hope I have inspired you to have a go at this design! Happy crafting – Jackie

Cow’s it going?

May 9, 2022

Hello everyone! Today it’s my turn to show you a nice creation. This time I started working with a TN page.

First I die cut the puzzle page (1848). For this I used paper from the Rainbow of Happiness paper pas (C006). Love this paper pad because of the bright colors! On the left die cut the spot that comes with the puzzle page. I used this as a cow stain. Behind this I made a black square, only adhered at the edges so I could add the cow in between.

In the square on the right side I made a shaker window. I did this by making mica behind the square window. You fold this in half again. You can use anything as shaking material. I used some Picket Fence here and combines it with micro beads.

After that I started with the cow and the pig. I colored both of these with distress inks. With the cow you don’t have to add his feet, tale and all his marks as it won’t show.

Now it’s time to finish the pages. The cow can go in the spot on the left and the pig on the other page. Behind the pig I added another background. I used the earth background die (1895) for this.

At the end I stamped a sentiment on both pages to complete it.

Hopefully you like this page as much as I do! See you next time!

Hakuna Matata

May 5, 2022

Hii everyone! Here Lisanne and back with a new blogpost. This blogpost will be a short post but I realy like the result.

First I made the cute Giraffe with Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink. The little spots are diecut with Double Sided Adhesive at the back.

Then the background. I think it was time to use the Silk Microfine Glitter. For this card I want to create a jungle scene. So I used the Leaf background. For the base I used Soft Finish Cardstock and Double Sided Adhesive at the top so I can put Anitque Gold glitter at it.

The leaf is colored with Distress Ink.

The next step is adhere the Giraffe at the back ground. As you can see I made Jungle leaves at the top of the card. The left corner is realy empty so I decided to make the party lanterns, make a leave and a banner with Hakuna Matata at it.

So this was my short post about this card, but I hope you liked it. Thankyou for reading and hopefully see you soon.

Kind regards Lisanne

Lemonade cart

April 27, 2022

Hello all.. Jackie here for today’s blog post. I am so pleased that spring is finally here and we are starting to see some sunshine which has inspired me to create this sunny looking card for you today. I have used the wooden trailer – 1909 Hay Ride – to create this lemonade cart plus there are also a few bits of hand drawn fussy cutting to do. So lets get started.

Step One:

Start by die cutting all the pieces for the cart, the photo below shows all the pieces I have used. Where you can see more than one of the same piece I have doubled up and glued together to add some texture to the finished cart. You will need to die cut the same pieces to create the roof and the bottom, then use this same die to cut the three coloured panels into different coloured cardstock.

Step Two:

Continue to build the cart up. You will need to cut two thin side bars measuring approximately 1/8th x 2.75″ which will be glued either side from the base to the roof. The bunting, lemons, soda cups and signs are all fussy cut apart from the straws and sign stick (these are the waste pieces from the cart base die)

Step Three:

Ink a pale blue circle in the centre of a 5×5″ white card panel, I used distress oxide tumbled glass and a domed blending tool. Offer the cart up to the inked circle to see where the wheels will sit, then draw a few black lines with squiggles to ground the cart, fix the prepared panel to the front of a top folding turquoise card blank measuring 5.25 x 5.25″ but do not fix the cart in place yet.

Step Four:

Next die cut the bunny, you will not need the legs as you will not see them. build up the bunny as normal and add rosy cheeks using pale pink ink, I used distress ink spun sugar and a finger dauber. Draw on some whiskers and add a tiny white dot to each eye then fix the bunny in place before attaching the finished cart to the card front.

I have chosen not to add a sentiment but you could add whatever sentiment you like, this would suit quite a few different occasions. You could also switch up the design and make a number of different cart’s like sweets, hotdogs and burgers or even fresh fruit and veg.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you have found some inspiration from this design.

See you soon and happy crafting – Jackie x

Hi all! I hope you doing all fine? I’m here with a new blogpost with the Time to travel collection and some dies from Joset and Ilse & Charlene.

I used the Porthole page for this card. I die-cut it two times and just used two holes.

I want to make a book of it. So I used the Journal Edges and a piece of kraft cardstock.

At this piece I used a stamp to pimp it. I think it looks realy grungy.

In the portholes I adhere the circle with the word ‘summer’ and the cute hippo with his safari hat. He is looking through the porthole.

At the back you see the back of the Hippo with his tail. I only adhere the circles from the porthole inside.

I stamped a sentiment in one of the portholes and add some washi tape.

This is my porthole card with the Hippo. I’ll hope you liked it.

Thankyou for reading!

Kind regards Lisanne

Flower Pot

April 18, 2022

Hello everyone, it’s Alice here. Hope you all had a wonderful Easter. I’m very much into Spring mood these day with the beautiful sun shining here in the Netherlands. I therefore decided to make a colorful card using some lovely flower dies and the gnomes! I hope you enjoy creating this card or some of the techniques I will show you in this post.

First I started with the flower pot. For this I first edited a piece of paper with Dylusions spray. I then used this paper to die cut the flower pot. I then embossed the pot using an embossing folder from Tim Holtz, see picture below. This gives a nice wood structure to your flower pot. I then sprayed the pot with embossing glaze. After that I used a distress crayon to make the darker spots on it.

Then I made the lovely gnomes. They are so cute! You can use them in a winter theme but also in a spring theme.

I made a girl and boy gnome. The colors on the gnomes I made this time with ZIG markers, they are watercolor pencils. Love them to color the different parts. They have beautiful colors with a lot of pigment in it.

On the top of the flower pot I made some lovely flowers with the Florals 7 set (#1843). I used 3 of the 5 sizes for this. I colored the flowers also with the ZIG markers. In the middle of the flowers I added some beads using Glossy Accents and let it dry.

In the background I made clouds with a mask and Distress Ink Oxide Tumbled Glass. I backed the card with some Modascrap paper in the same color theme as the flowers and the gnomes.

This was my creation for today. I hope I inspire you to make a card in this spring theme!

See you next time!

Greetings Alice

Enjoy the Ride!

April 13, 2022

Howdy everyone. Jackie here today with this super fun design using a few of our farm friends! It’s great to group a few of Joset’s characters together creating a fun scene. If you would like to give this design a go then let’s get started.

Step One:

Start by creating the frame background use the scalloped edge frame and square dies from the pizza box set, die cut two scalloped frames into black card and two pale blue squares gluing the two pairs together.

Step Two:

Place the two die cut shapes together with the scalloped frame crooked then fix to a 5.25×5.25″ white card blank using 3d foam squares.

Step Three:

Build up the Cow, Donkey and Farmer as normal, add a few white dotty detail to the farmers shirt using a white gel pen.

Step Four:

Arrange the characters in a cluster with the farmer riding the cow, when you are happy with the arrangement fix in place using more 3d foam squares.

Step Five:

Stamp out the sentiment using using black ink, then trim down to a thin strip.

Step Six:

Attach the sentiment to the bottom of the frame tucking just under the edge, add the pitch fork to finish.

This card can be used for many different occasions, you can switch up the sentiment and add whatever you like.

Thank you for stopping by today I hope you have found some inspiration – Happy crafting Jackie.
