Just the Way You Are

April 8, 2021

Hey everyone! It’s EK and today I am popping in to share a little card I made using Joset’s Elephant and Hats die set. I thought it might be fun today to see if I could push the elephant into a slightly more whimsical position, and let him join in on the unicorn craze!

Step One: Using 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock, die cut both the Unicorn hat from the Hats die set and all the Elephant die set pieces including the legs a second time.

Step Two: Using alcohol markers, color the die cut pieces. I used copics.

Step Three: Using a liquid adhesive, assemble the elephant, tucking the second set of arms under his chin. I used Kids Choice Glue.

Step Four: On an A2 card frame, blend some blue ink. I used Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass. Splatter the card frame with some liquid shimmer.

Step Five: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the elephant to the card frame. Using liquid adhesive, adhere the water spray.

Step Six: Using the Safari Sayings stamp set, add a sentiment using dark blue ink.

Step Seven: Finally, adhere the copic colored hearts to the card, letting three of them surround the water spray, and one accenting the sentiment.

I just love how the Elephant turned out. I know he was intended to be on all fours, but I love the look of him standing with the extra set of legs.

Let us know in the comments below which of Joset’s animal die cuts is your favorite. Until then, happy crafting!

Let Your Heart Guide You Tag

April 3, 2021

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Let Your Heart Guide You Tag.

To create my Let Your Heart Guide You Tag, I’ve used a variety of dies and stamps from Suzanne Cannon as well as dies from the Planner Essentials Collection and Joset Designs. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my tag at home.

Step One. Die cut the large tag from the Planner Essentials – 2 die out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two. Choose a piece of green paper out of the Reminiscence the Book. Die cut half of the leaf wreath from the Wreath & Elements die out of the patterned paper.

Step Three. Die cut a 1 3/8″ Fitted Fishtail out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Trim the fishtail down to 2 3/4″. From the Love & Soar Collection, you’ll need the Let Your Heart quote. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the quote and stamp onto the fishtail.

Step Four. Choose a piece of light pink paper and a piece of patterned dark pink paper. Die cut the medium butterfly from the Butterfly Flourish die out of the light pink paper and the patterned dark pink paper. Die cut the small butterfly from the patterned dark pink paper.

Step Five. Adhere the leaf wreath to the left hand side of the tag.

Step Six. Use foam squares to adhere the fishtail quote 1/4″ from the bottom and 1 1/4″ from the left of the tag.

Step Seven. Adhere the three butterflies as desired to the left side of the tag.

Step Eight. To finish the tag, tie a piece of twine through the hole at the top of the tag.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Let Your Heart Guide You Tag.
