it’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you how to create this card and how to make your own custom-made sentiments:
Step 1: Die Cutting
die cut a background panel and a wave border from watercolor paper with one of the Stitched Rectangles and one of the Ocean Edges
die cut the Lighthouse elements from white Soft Finish Cardstock
Step 2: Add Color
color the background with Distress Oxide Ink (Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans) and a Blending Brush
add water droplets for more texture
add color to the wave border with Distress Oxide Ink (Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire) and add some splatters with watered-down Distress Oxide Ink Chipped Sapphire
for the seafoam ink up the edge of the wave border with Versamark and heat-emboss it with WOW! Seafoam White embossing powder
color the lighthouse with Alcohol Markers
Step 3: Assembly and Finishing Touches
assemble the Lighthouse and the background – use clear double-sided adhesive and liquid glue
add white highlights with a white gel pen
Step 4: Create a custom-made Sentiment
there a several ways to create custom-made sentiments: you can use calligraphy or just your handwriting or a Labelmaker … in this case I used a Vintage Typewriter to type my sentiment onto sturdy white cardstock
cut the sentiment apart and ink up the edges with Distress Oxide Ink Pumice Stone
adhere the panel to a grey cardbase
I hope you got inspired.

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Sea You Soon Card.
I’m been loving creating with the new dies from Joset Designs newest release. For today’s project, I’ve create this card, which uses a variety of the new Joset Designs dies as well as some from the previous release. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my card at home.
Step One. Choose a piece of beach themed patterned paper. Die cut a 5 1/4″ Stitched Rounded Square out of the paper. Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Two. Die cut a 4 3/4″ Stitched Rounded Square out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Three. Die cut a 3/4″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtail out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the fishtail down to 2 1/4″. Apply Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink to the Sea You Soon sentiment from the Splish Splash Sentiment and stamp onto the fishtail. Ink the edges of the banner using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
The next seven steps all use the Lighthouse die.
Step Four. Die cut the Lighthouse twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Set one full lighthouse to the side.
Step Five. Die cut the bottom and middle die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. From the second lighthouse, cut the top portion off, just below the windows.
Step Six. Die cut the top and bottom portion of the lighthouse out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. From the second lighthouse, cut the strip between the window and middle out as well as the strip in between the middle and the bottom. Recycle the middle and bottom portions of the lighthouse. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Candied Apple Distress Ink over the entire surface of the top, bottom and two strips.
Step Seven. Die cut the large windows from the lighthouse die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink over the entire surface of the windows.
Step Nine. Die cut the small windows, door opening and decorative strip out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink over the entire surface of the small windows, door opening and decorative strip.
Step Ten. Die cut the sand out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, lightly blend Tea Dye Distress Ink over the entire surface of the sand.
Step Eleven. Die cut the seagulls out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Hickory Smoke Distress Ink over the entire surface of the seagulls.
Step Twelve. From the Seashell Dies, choose three. Die cut the three shells out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, lightly blend Tea Dye Distress Ink over the entire surface of one of the shells. Using a blending tool with foam, lightly blend Rusty Hinge Distress Ink over the entire surface of the second shell. Using a blending tool with foam, lightly blend Spun Sugar Distress Ink over the entire surface of the third shell.
Step Thirteen. From the Diving Accessories die, you’ll need the starfish. Die cut the starfish out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Dried Marigold Distress Ink over the entire surface of the starfish.
Step Fourteen. Adhere your lighthouse together using the full lighthouse from step four.
Step Fifteen. Adhere the 4 3/4″ square to the 5 1/4″ square.
Step Sixteen. Foam square the sand to bottom left side of the 4 3/4″ square. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the lighthouse slightly overtop of the sand.
Step Seventeen. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the starfish and three seashells as desired to the right of the lighthouse.
Step Eighteen. Foam square the sentiment fishtail 2″ from the top and all the way to the right hand side of the 4 3/4″ square. Adhere the two seagulls as desired around the top of the lighthouse.
Step Nineteen. Cut a card base out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5 1/4″ x 10 1/2″, score at 5 1/4″. Adhere the card front to the card base.

Hi friends and welcome, Mac and I are currently in the middle of our annual RV trip so naturally I have travel on the brain. This time around I’m sharing a banner made using the great papers from ModaScrap along with Soft Finish Cardstock, and featuring dies from Joset Designs. When I saw this fabulous travel-themed paper at my local scrapbook store I knew what I wanted to make. I chose parts of the paper that depict places we have been in our motor coach and then embellished with die cuts that went with that theme. I even wrote my own verses to the tune of the old Roger Miller song “King of the Road” that go along with motor coach travel. You can see my lyrics by clicking on my name at the bottom of this post which will take you to my personal blog. Enjoy.
Hello, Robin here with my first post for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I am so thrilled with this opportunity to be a guest designer and share my designs with all of you. I had so much fun creating this deep sea adventure card. I hope you enjoy making one as well.
Use a paper trimmer to cut one 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of tan colored cardstock lengthwise at 4 1/4″.
Fold the pieces of card stock in half to create two card bases that measure 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.
Adhere the back side of one of the card bases to the inside flap of the second card base. Make sure to line them up perfectly. You will now have a three-paneled card base.
Trim 1/8 of an inch off your third panel so when you fold your card it will lay perfectly flat.
Close your card so your third panel is in the middle and your left panel is on top. place your fourth sized oval die from your Stitched Ovals die set (#1113) in the center of your card so it lays horizontal.
Run the entire card through your die cutting machine until your top two card layers have cleanly cut through. you will now have a left window panel, a middle solid panel, and a right window panel.
Emboss your window panels one at a time with your favorite sea themed embossing folder or one that creates the look of water or rocks. (With this card I used a zebra pattern one that looks wavy.) Make sure you only emboss your window panels.
Trim out a blue background panel measuring 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ and emboss it to match your window panels. You will adhere this to the middle solid panel to create your ocean background.
Using your fourth and fifth size ovals from your Stitched Ovals set you will create a border for the front panel of your window card. Using a glue pen to apply a small amount to the back of the oval frame, carefully adhere it to the front of your card around the oval window.
Using dies from the Seaweed die set (#1186) cut 7 green seaweed pieces, 2 orange coral pieces, 1 large and 2 small light pink coral pieces and the rims for them in darker pink, plus 5 brown big rocks and 5 brown small rocks.
Using dies from the Small Shells die set (#1147) cut 1 brown starfish, 1 pink starfish and starfish overlay, 1 shell with its overlay.
Cut 1 gray anchor using the Lighthouse die set (#1145).
Cut 1 green sea turtle and sea turtle shell overlay using the Sea Turtle die set (#1185).
Cut 2 layers of blue cardstock ocean waves the Boat die set (#1182). Adhere the pieces so one row of waves ishigher than the other and trim them using the fourth size oval from the Stitched Ovals set, the same set used to cut out your windows.
On the lower left corner of your card front, layer and adhere two green and one orange seaweed pieces and two brown rocks, one smaller, one larger.
On the bottom right corner of your card front, layer and adhere one orange seaweed piece and three pink coral pieces, then add add one small rock and one large rock.
On the inside of your front flap add one green seaweed and one brown starfish to the bottom right corner.
On the inside of your right window panel adhere your two layers of ocean waves. The back of the waves is a perfect location to add your sentiment. I added a stamped image from the Ahoy Sentiments clear stamps set, ‘Have a splashing day!’ (Tip: It’s easiest to stamp the sentiment before attaching the wave pieces to the window.)
On the outside of your right hand window panel layer and adhere one green seaweed piece, one 1 pink double-layered shell and a large brown rock at the bottom left corner.
On the bottom right corner arrange and adhere add three green pieces of seaweed, two large and two small brown rocks, one double-layered pink starfish, and the anchor.
Lastly, add your sea turtle making sure to line him up so when you close the right window panel you can see that he is partly in the waves.
Fold your card panels in and enjoy your triple-layered Deep Sea Adventure 🙂
Good Morning. This is Selma Stevenson today. It is always fun to go to the beach for some summer fun. Today I used three of the Joset Designs die sets; Lighthouse, Rainbow Sky, and Hot Air Balloons to create a fun card. Also Els van de Burgt Studio Stitched Frames, Fitted Frames and a piece of her Wood, Through The Lens card stock was used.
Hi there! It’s Marsha here today, sharing some cards that were inspired by Delft Blue tiles!
My mom and I visited the Dutch city Delft recently. And when you visit Delft, you can’t escape Delftware. It’s everywhere! So when I got home, I thought it would be fun to see if I could create a couple of Delftware style cards.
It’s Joset here today sharing this Sea Shells & Lighthouse card with you. Although we still have a little bit of snow on the ground here in Banff, I felt like creating a summery card. I used the Lighthouse, Shells Large, Shells Small, Fitted Rectangles and Stitched Rectangles dies, as well as my favorite Soft Finish Cardstock from Elizabeth Craft Designs. And, of course, my go-to Distress Ink to add a touch of color. Let’s get started!
1. Cut Pink Peach Soft Finish Cardstock 5 3/4″ x 9″. Score at 4 1/2 and fold in half to create your card base.
2. Cut rectangle from White Soft Finish Cardstock using the largest rectangle die from the Fitted Rectangles. Use an ink applicator tool or sponge to add color at the edges with Tattered Rose Distress Ink. Adhere to card front.
3. Cut another rectangle from the same cardstock, this time with the second largest rectangle in the Stitched Rectangles die set. Add Tattered Rose Distress Ink to the edges as in step 2. Layer to card front, centered.
4. Die cut 1 solid lighthouse, 1 lighthouse overlay, 1 lighthouse balcony and 1 anchor from White Soft Finish Cardstock. For the overlay and balcony, back the cardstock with Double Sided Adhesive first before die cutting. Save the die cut leftover pieces from the bottom part of the lighthouse and the lighthouse door as you’re going to color these and place them back into their original spots later in the project.
5. Color lighthouse overlay and the 3 leftover die cut pieces with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.
6. Adhere the lighthouse overlay to the solid lighthouse and place the die cut pieces back where they began.
7. To complete your lighthouse, adhere the balcony.
8. Die cut various sea shells from White Soft Finish Cardstock using Shells Large and Shells Small. For each shell, die cut a solid piece and the matching overlay (for the overlay, apply Double Sided Adhesive on the back of the cardstock first before die cutting) and save the leftover die cut pieces from the overlay.
Now it’s time to color the shells. Use the same method for all of them as you see in the step by step photos showing the scallop shell.
9. Color the bottom part of the solid shell and the shell overlay with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.
10. Adhere the overlay on the solid shell and place the leftover die cut pieces back where they began. For the large scallop shell, leave out the small pieces at the bottom. Because that area on the solid shell has been colored, leaving those off creates extra dimension.
11. Using your bending tool and Distress Ink, gently apply a touch of ink in a circular motion over the complete shell to add some color to the leftover pieces you just placed back in their original ‘parking places’. Shade the bottom of the shell with just a bit more ink.
12. Repeat step 9, 10 and 11 to color the rest of the shells. Use the leftover die cut pieces from the overlays where you would like to add more dimension or just color the solid and overlay as I did with the two smallest shells and discard the leftovers.
13. Adhere lighthouse and shells to card front as shown. Overlap the shells and use one or more layers of foam tape for added dimension. Add string to the anchor, then pierce a hole at the top right corner of the card and tie the anchor in place. Note that the shells are at angles and the starfish is centered below the lighthouse as the final (topmost) layer.
I hope you enjoyed creating this Sea Shells & Lighthouse Card made with the lovely Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink!
