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.
Hello friends and welcome, it’s Sandy here with a fun project for you today. Although it is hotter than blue blazes here in Arizona I have been thinking about the holiday season. With all the great new dies from Joset’s recent release I just couldn’t stop thinking about Christmas and some cool snow flakes. If you like to incorporate photos in your cards for the holidays I have just the thing for you and would you believe it folds down flat for mailing?
It’s Karen here. I’m obsessed with the fashion stamps available at Elizabeth Craft Designs and wanted to make a holiday card using them. I combined a couple of stamp sets to create a holiday-inspired dress to embellish my card today!
Hi Crafty Friends,
It’s Frances here and it is my turn to post a tutorial for the Die Cut Design Team. Today I am playing with a couple of the Becky Seddon die sets, Stylish Snowman and Reindeer, to make a winter birthday card. I have created a mama and baby snowman for this fun card. Becky’s Stylish Snowman die set comes with lots of different options to create unique snow characters. This design could easily be changed to become a Christmas card or card for a winter birthday just by using different sentiments.
I love pop-up cards, so I have used the new General Pop-Ups die set to create the base of my card. On the front I used a couple of the new A Way with Words dies. You can use all or part of what I have done when creating your own, depending on what you want to do.
