Fall Harvest Friends

September 9, 2021

Hi Friends, it’s EK. I don’t know about you, but I am ready for Fall. I am ready for the leaves to drop and the weather to turn into something that needs a sweater and maybe a scarf. At least for me, those days are still pretty far off, but I figured I could at least craft myself into the season. Today I have created a trio of Fall Harvest themed cards using Joset’s critter dies to craft these fall feeling designs.

Step One: Create the backgrounds. Die cut a circle mask using the Stitched Circles die set. Lay on your background to be a harvest moon. In a splatter box, spray a collection of fall inspired colors Distress Sprays onto some already damp Watercolor Paper. I used Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet and Shaded Lilac.

Step Two: Spray Distress Oxide along the top edge of the background. I used Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide. Remove the mask and head seat the background.

Step Three: Spray clean water into the ‘moon’ and let ink run into the white space. Dry. Press ink int any left over ink for a smooched look. Heat set.

Step Four: Repeat steps one through three with a different background color. Here I used Antique Linen, Mowed Lawn, and Forest Moss Distress Stain Spray and Bundled Sage Distress Oxide Spray.

Step Five: Repeat steps one through three for a third time using different colors. Here I sed Antique Linen, Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge Distress Stain Spray and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide Spray.

Step Six: Splatter each background with reflective shimmer ink. I used Perfect Pearls in both original and pewter.

Step Seven: Die cut the backgrounds with the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set.

Step Eight: Create Harvest trees. Using the Tree die set, die cut three trees out of cardstock. I used black, grey and blue cardstock for my trees.

Step Nine: Emboss each die cut three with a subtle color so the trees each have shine.

I used on the on the grey cardstock Distress Embossing Glaze in Rusty Hinge, on the blue cardstock Distress Embossing Glaze in Tattered Rose, and on the black cardstock on old pot of glitter vintage mahogany embossing powder.

Step Ten: Create the critters. Start by die cutting the critter out of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Here I used the Fox die set.

Step Eleven: Using Distress Ink, color the die cut pieces.

Step Twelve: Using a liquid adhesive, such as Kids Choice Glue, assembled the critter. I used the holiday hat trim from the die set to create a scarf for the Fox to wear.

Step Thirteen: Repeat steps ten through twelve with the Moose dies set.

Step Fourteen: Repeat steps ten through twelve with the Owl die set. I also used the holiday hat die in the set to create a scarf for this critter.

Step Fifteen: Adhere the background onto an A2 card frame using 10mm Clear Double Sided Tape. Adhere the tree to the background. Add a critter to the card. I used the blue background, the tattered rose embossed Tree and the blue toned Owl to the first card.

The green background got the glitter Tree and the Moose die set.

The orange background got the rusty hinge Tree and the Fox.

Step Sixteen: Using the Zen Sentiments stamp set, add a sentiment to each of the cards.

What do you think? Did these cards embrace the beginning of fall? Let us know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.

Find Joy In The Ordinary

August 22, 2021

Welcome back, It’s Sandy Diller here today with a fun little gift box using the Pizza Box die set. This is the perfect solution for a small gift or a way to disguise a gift card.

White Soft Finish Cardstock was used for this entire project. You could also use colored cardstock to get a fabulous result.

The first thing to do is cut out the Pizza Box and crease on all the crease marks made by the die. Assemble box.

I used the Strawberry die set for this one.

After adding some creases and some ink the strawberries and leaves are ready to go. The berries were first colored with yellow and then red was added.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is pizza-box-5.jpg

I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs Flower Shaping Tool kit to add shape. To keep the shape after adding to the box a small piece of double back tape was added to the back.

The sentiment was stamped – then all elements were inked and added to the box front.

A little yellow ink was added to the edges of the box and then the front panel was added.

There it is, fun and festive.

Thanks so much for joining me today and have a creative week,

Sandy
