Hello Friends! It’s EK and I am popping in to let you know it is the first day of October, so that means it is officially time to break out all the fun Halloween stuff. I am so excited that Joset released earlier this year a fun-filled line of Halloween dies. They are going to be ghoul-tastic this year.
Step One: Die cut all the pieces from the Scarecrow die set using scrapes of printed paper. I used scrapes from the It’s Christmas Time, White Christmas, Relax in the Garden, Thinking About-Grand Canyon and Sweet Vintage Rose paper packs.
Step Two: Using Kids Choice Glue, assemble the scarecrow.
Step Three: Using alcohol markers, add some shadowing. I used N0, N2, and N4 copics.
Step Four: Trim a piece of Dusky Sky Soft Finish Cardstock to 5.5×5.5 inches. Using the Earth & Sky stencil and some Distress Oxides, add clouds and a moon to the background. I used Seedless Preserves, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire. Adhere the inked cardstock to a piece of 12×6 inch trimmed piece of Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock, that is scored and folded into a 6×6 inch card frame.
Step Five: Die cut the Tree die set from some Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere the tree and grass to the card frame.
Step Six: Adhere the Scarecrow and mice to the card frame.
Thank you for peeking in today. Let us know what Halloween project you are most excited to create this year in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.
Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my cute birthday notecard perfect to give to that special someone on their birthday. To create my card, I’ve used some stamps and coordinating dies from Krista Schneider as well as dies from Joset Designs and Els van de Burgt Studio and patterned paper from ModaScrap. I hope you enjoy my tutorial!
Step One. Take the light pink patterned paper out of the Thinking About…Grand Canyon Paper pack. Die cut the 4 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of the patterned paper. Distress the edges of the square. Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Two. Choose a coordinating patterned paper from the Butterfly Dream Patterned Paper that will work with the light pink patterned paper. Die cut the 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of the patterned paper. Distress the edges of the square. Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Three. Die cut the 3″ Stitched Circle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the circle down to 2 3/4″. Distress the edges of the circles. Ink the edges of the circle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Four. You’ll need three presents and the Just For You sentiment off of the Gift Wrapped Stamp Set. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to each of the presents as well as the Just for You sentiment and stamp each stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Use Tombow Markers: 815, 772, 676 and 847 as well as a watercolour brush to colour the presents. Use the Gift Wrapped dies to die cut the presents and Just For You sentiment out. Ink the edges of the presents and sentiment using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.
Step Five. Adhere the 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square to the 4 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square. Adhere the Stitched Circle to the right hand side of the 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square.
Step Six. Use foam squares to adhere the presents and sentiments to the circle as desired.
Step Seven. Cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 5″ x 10″, score at 5″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.
Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Just For You Notecard.
It’s Frances here for the Coloring Design Team, and it is my turn to post a tutorial. With Christmas just 103 days away, I thought I had better start getting some Christmas cards made. Today I am playing with the Krista Schneider Candy Land Clear Stamp set and coordinating dies.

Hello everyone! How are you? Can you believe it’s August already? Luckily it’s only the start so it still feels like summer, but autumn will soon be slowly creeping in. Not that I have a problem with that. I rather like the beginning of the autumn with the long, warm evenings and the golden light that makes the pine trees appear to be deep red. And the leaves, the colorful leaves that start to turn to red, orange, yellow and gold and then rustle under your step. A wonderful time!
This time I did a layout to celebrate autumn and a card using the same techniques. Add a dandle or two to turn it into a birthday card, or send it just to make someone’s day, no special occasion needed!
Let’s get started with the tutorial so you can make your own golden leaves to greet autumn!
