Hi everyone, Katie here with todays blog post. When I received this set from Joset it automatically brought me back to some wonderful memories as a kid, picking daisy’s and collecting ladybugs. So today I wanted to create this super fun playful slim line card featuring Joset;s new collection “Bugs and Butterflies”. So grab a coffee and I will walk you through how I created this card.
Step 1: Cut your ladybugs from coordinating cardstock, the wings are cut from heavy vellum.
The flowers are cut from white and yellow card stock.
Ink all pieces before assembling with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, the cheeks are inked with Flamingo Distress Ink, I used a white gel pen for the dot in the cheeks. As per picture bellows.
Step 2: Choose your favorite slim line die, the one I used was from Photoplay. Next, I cut a piece of background paper and acetate to fit the card front and assemble. I like to use a bit of acetate as it creates a bit of a shimmer behind the card. then cut and fold your slimline card base.
Step 3: Next, attach your flowers and pop dot your ladybugs.
Step 4: Stamp your choice of sentiment from “Bugs and Kisses” and pop-dot to your card.
Step 5: Splatter your card with heavy acrylic paint.
Thank you for joining me with todays blog post, if you have any questions about my card please send me a message on Facebook Katie Porcina. Happy Crafting.
My best friend is in the hospital and the least I can do is send a card, right? But a garland is more fun and hopefully it will put a smile on her face. It is always difficult to photograph a garland so I put them in a circle.
This time I used the Small Doilies from Annette Green as a base, on which I glued a circle from the same set with a letter from the alphabet from Esther Glass.
I attached the flags with a tab from the pocket pages fillers for the sidekick.
Everything got a layer of tea dye distress ink and then a black edge.
It is always quite a bit of work to make such a garland, but it is also very fun to do and it makes everyone happy.
Look at this cutie, Joset’s ladybug with a blue jacket on, I absolutely love it!
I halved the doilies and gave them all a layer of distress ink, I used tea dye. Then they got an edge of black ink, I also edited the letters and the tabs. All flags are attached to the string with the tab.
I hope my girlfriend is better soon and that she can just give this pendulum a place at home.

Hello Everyone, it is Christine here from the Susan’s Garden Club Design Team. I am so excited to be introducing 2 of Susan’s new releases, coming soon. I decided to use the Garden Notes Aster and the Canning Jar & Lid. She has both new Garden Notes and CountryScapes dies coming out and trust me, it was a hard decision to choose which ones I wanted to make first, but since summer is so short-lived here in Maine I decided to continue with flowers.
As crafters, I am sure many of you can relate to the fact most of us look at everything wondering what other purpose it could be used for, and that is what I did with the plastic packaging that most cutting plates come in and it is just what I used to cut my jar from. Continue Reading
Hi Everyone. It’s Tina here again as Guest Designer. If you are like me and use your own cards to give to your family and friends the thought of that card being thrown out in the garbage afterwards is devastating. The following card design can be used later on in a picture frame (or shadow box frame) to be mounted to a wall. You can also use this idea for an easel stand as well.
Raquel Mason here with another Elizabeth Craft Designs glitter project for you. Do you love glitter? I know I sure do. SO let’s get some Silk Microfine Glitter out & let’s get to it.
For the front of my card I used the Flourish with Flowers die to create an inlay, meaning it’s set into my card & not glued on top of my card. I die cut the Flourish with Flowers into my patterned paper & set the die cut aside – don’t throw it away as you’ll be needed little pieces from it. I adhered Double Sided Adhesive to white card stock & die cut another Flourish with Flowers from that.
I also cut some labels from Lucy Label for my sentiment, I’ve added white gel pen around the green Lucy Label & even glittered hearts inlaid on the white Lucy Label. The Ladybugs are cut from Black Velvet Adhesive Sheets & white covered with Double Sided Adhesive & Cool Silk Microfine Glitter colored with Spectrum Noir markers. To finish off the front, I added some pink seam binding.
What you see in this photo is how I added the Fuchsia Silk Microfine Glitter by cutting the release sheet off ONLY on the two flowers. I then dipped the flowers into the Fuchsia Silk Microfine Glitter, shook off the excess & gently polished with my finger.
Here I have removed the rest of the release sheet & applied Spring Peridot Silk Microfine Glitter all over, shook off the excess & polished gently with my finger. So now I am ready to put my flower into the opening of my patterned paper. Put Double Sided Adhesive or clear packing tape on the back side of the patterned paper to cover the opening, turn your paper over to the patterned side & inlay your die cut into the shape. Now you will get the patterned paper die cut that you set aside & use tweezers to put all the little negative pieces back in their respective places….kind of like a puzzle.
I used the Lucy Label to animate my sentiment & Ladybugs Peel-Off Stickers & Ladybugs die cuts.
I cut another Flourish with Flowers from Peridot Gemstone Shimmer Sheetz to give my ladybugs something to crawl on. To hide the seams where the patterned paper & green meet, I used Transparent/Gold Glitter Border Peel-Offs.
And finally a close up of all the glittery goodness that Silk Microfine Glitter can bring!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
