Valentine’s Gnome

January 15, 2022

Karen here today, sharing a card that would be totally appropriate for Valentine’s Day using the adorable Gnomes Dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. This gnome is too cute!

I just love that sweet little Gnome girl. To create this card, I started by cutting an 8-1/2″x11″ sheet of 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock in half. I folded one side to create a top fold card base. I cut the other side in half and cut the Gnome pieces. The pieces that are “on top” have 101mm Double Sided Adhesive on the back to make assembly a breeze.

I used mostly Distress Inks to color the sweet Gnome. The clothes are Blueprint Sketch and Kitsch Flamingo. The hair is Mustard Seed. I used a Copic E00 for the skin, G43 for the flower center and E53 for the flower.

I adhered the patterned cardstock as in the left-hand side of the picture above before cutting it with the Fitted Rectangles on the right-hand side. I then layered it up on a 4″x5-1/4″ piece of blue cardstock. Then I put the Gnome on the card and added some gems and a sentiment from the Bear Hugs set.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Merry Christmas All

December 25, 2021

Merry Christmas everyone!! Jackie here today – I hope you are all enjoying the festivities.

I know its a bit late to want to recreate this Festive Christmas girl however she could easily be changed to suit birthdays and other occasions by switching the colours and removing the hat.

Step One:

Start by stamping out the sentiment towards the bottom left of a 5.25″ x 5.25″ top folding card blank. Next draw a curly line all around the edge.

Step Two:

Using the fairy lights die from the Train Carts die set 1924.

Die cut a few of the strung lights into black cardstock and cut the bulbs apart discarding the in between string, next die cut again into glitter card or paper but this time using just the bulbs. Carefully glue the glitter bulbs on top of the black bulbs. – silk microfine glitter can be used instead which I will link below.

Step Three:

Build the festive Christmas girl using the Witch die set 1906 with a few alterations – there are added pieces from the Winter Accessories die set 1829, all the pieces you need are laid out below however the belt will have to be cut down slightly to fit the waist. The fur trims have been cut from white felt backed with double sided sheet and thin card for added stability.

Step Four:

Glue the bulbs all the way around the drawn string leaving approximately 1cm between each bulb. Add a couple of details to the girl like black eye lashes and stripy socks then add white dots to the eyes before fixing the girl in place using 3d foam pads

This little Festive party girl would look fabulous in all sorts of colourful outfits and the fur trim could be switched for a glittery trim. The possibilities are endless! Thank you for stopping by and I hope I have inspired you to have a go at creating a party girl or two.

December Daily with Critters

December 19, 2021

Karen here today sharing days 7 and 8 of my December Daily album. I love making these albums each year. This year, I’m using many of Joset’s critters to embellish my pages. Seriously so sweet.

Day 7 includes the fun new Planner Essentials 48 – Forest Tree Page. (The Joy die is also in this set!) The page base is Planner Essentials 4. To apply the tree to the base, I used 101mm Double Sided Adhesive. I love the tree with the sweet Reindeer! The number is stamped from the Calendar Numbers set and the little “Peace on Earth” Sentiment is from the Cozy Days set. This page highlights a few ornaments on my tree that include pictures of my kids. I treasure those ornaments, for sure.

I just HAD to use a close-up of that sweet Reindeer. I love putting together these critters! It’s so relaxing, like when I used to play with paper dolls as a kid!

On the back of Day 7 is Day 8! I used the very sweet Penguin die to embellish this page. I added a couple Fitted Circles (and chopped them off at the edge. No page is complete (for me) without adding some fun reinforcements!

And finally, I couldn’t be done without a close-up of the ADORABLE Penguin. Once of my favorites! Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

December Daily

December 6, 2021

Karen here. Each year, I have such fun with the Planner Essentials line creating my December Daily. This year, I wanted to incorporate the incredibly cute designs from Joset’s line of critters and fun. Today’s post shows the start of several of my pages. I will be out for a few days this month with a minor procedure, so I created these pages in advance, and I love how sweet they are! When I get some pictures, I can add them and will likely add some stamps here and there.

I’m doing my whole album this year with a Kraft cardstock base. The page itself is cut from the Planner Essentials 1 die. I added some Stitched and Fitted Squares for the pattern and decided that the Holiday Elf-Hers was the perfect addition. As always, I added reinforcements from either the Reinforcement Variety Pack 1 or 2 (that I backed with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive before diecutting!)

Seriously, could the Sheep be any cuter. This set was released in the Life is Better on the Farm collection, and I just LoVe LoVe it. The page base on this one is from the Planner Essentials 6 set.

On the flip side of the Planner Essentials 1 page is this fun page with the new Train Carts. I did a page on a previous post using the Holiday Train and thought this would be cute right across from it. For this page, I took a piece of green patterned paper and adhered it diagonally before die cutting.

And finally, on the flip side of the Planner Essentials 6 page, I added the Dog. I’m sure I’ll have lots of pictures of my sweet doggie during the holiday times, so he’ll need to have his own page. At the bottom, is a couple Fitted Circles that I added to frame the sweet Dog!

Thank you for stopping by today.

Hello Fall

November 13, 2021

Hello everyone and Happy Fall or Autumn depending where you are in the world, Jackie here today sharing this autumnal card starring the cutest turkey I have ever seen! There is lots of stamping involved with this one so let get started.

Step One:

Using the three smallest stamps from the Autumn Words set, stamp the leaf pattern all over a sheet of soft finish card stock.

Step Two:

Cut a panel 3.25″ x 8.25″ spritz with a little water then dab off creating a nice watery effect, you can spritz as much or as little water as you like. Die cut into the panel using a medium sized circle die then rough up all the edges creating some texture before fixing to a tall card blank using 3d foam pads.

Step Three:

Build up the turkey as normal except for the tail, here I decided to add layers of colour. Cut the tail four times then fussy cut each piece at the embossed mark, ink the pieces with four different colours before fixing together.

Step four:

Add a white heat embossed sentiment toward the bottom using 3d foam pads then attach the turkey to the circular area using more foam pads.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you to have a go!

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

Playing with Vellum

October 25, 2021

Karen here today, sharing a couple cards I made using wet emboss technique on vellum. I know that this technique has been out there forever and ever, but I just forgot how pretty it can be.

My first card uses one of my favorite dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs – the Penguin. So cute, and so easy to make! He is cut with black cardstock and 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. The feet and nose are colored with YR14 Copic marker. I used a hat from the Santa die and colored it with R37. I cut the pieces with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive just to make things simpler to assemble. I also backed the Vellum panel with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to turn that panel into a sticker. (Then you can’t see the adhesive!) The sentiment (from the Classic Christmas Special Kit) is wet embossed with black. Some black Nuvo drops finished up this card.

For this second card, I used the snowflakes from the Classic Christmas Special Kit (and the sentiment too, embossed in gold). Again, I added 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to the back of the vellum before cutting it with a Fitted Circle die. It made adding it to the larger circle so easy. I added a Bead String with some White Craft Drops. I added some Gold Craft Drops to the snowflakes too.

Thank you for stopping by today.

Craftily yours, Karen

Spooky!

October 24, 2021

Hello and Welcome! One of my favourite reason why I love playing with dies (especially background dies) is how versatile they can be. Here I’m using the Spider Web Slimline Background die angled to create an A6 card. I’m using heaps of colour to contrast it against the black spiders and the angle of the card draws you into the spiders! Here’s how I made it…

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Adhere clear double sided adhesive to the back of several coloured pieces of card stock.

Step 2: Die cut the slimline die, repeat this for the remaining coloured pieces of card stock.

TIP: To avoid wastage think of other layouts that you could use the remaining die cuts for. As you are die cutting the slimline die 5-6 times, there is potential to create many more cards!

Step 3: Remove the adhesive backing and adhere the outline of the web to an A6 card front. Next, use the negative die cuts from the other pieces of paper, remove the adhesive backing, and adhere these in place as shown in the image below.

TIP: Adhering clear double sided adhesive to the back of each card stock before die cutting, save you time (and glue)!

Step 4: Continue to do this until all the negative space has been filled. Trim any excess over lapping card stock.

Step 5: Die cute 5x spiders. Adhere clear jewelry thread (15cm long) to the back of two spiders, add a foam dot, and then adhere another spider to hide the thread on the spider.

Step 6: Take the thread and adhere it to the back of your card front as shown below. Next adhere your card front to an A6 card base.

Step 7: Stamp the sentiment, die cut and adhere to the card front. Embellish the card, with enamel dots and adhere the last spider to the card front.

As you can see below the very spooky spiders can dangle making this a very simple interactive card perfect for Halloween or anyone who loves creepy crawlies!

Happy Crafting!

Smile

October 23, 2021

Hello all, Jackie here..

Today I am sharing a simple card design which would suit a number of occasions. I have changed the holiday elf into a little girl with a couple so simple fussy cuts. So lets get started.

Step One

Start by die cutting the face and boots. Fussy cut off the pointed ear tops and curly boots.

Step Two

Draw a few lines onto a scrap of cream cardstock then die cut the legs. Die cut all the other pieces and build up the little girl as normal.

Step Four

Stamp out and white heat emboss the smile sentiment then use the coordinating die to cut it out.

Step Five

Layer an A2 card blank with a white panel trimmed to fit slightly smaller. Attach a heart shaped piece of vellum then two pieces of patterned paper measuring approximately 1 x 4.25″ then fix the girl in place followed by the sentiment, finish for with a couple of enamel dots.

I hope yo have been inspired to create this little lady, you can have fun making her with different colour hair and clothes.

Happy crafting

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!
