The Party Train

July 21, 2022

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. I absolutely LOVE the new monster collection from Joset Designs. Today I am sharing a card that I created using the collection.

Preparation:

For the card base, cut a piece of cardstock to 10″ x 7″ and score at 5″. Also cut a piece of white soft finish cardstock to 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″. Cut out the fence from the Slimline Adventure Edges in both black cardstock and woodgrain cardstock. Also cut the shrub edge from a scrap piece of cardstock to use as a stencil in later steps. Using Monster 1 and Monster 3, cut and assemble your characters out of your favorite colors of cardstock. For added depth and dimension, ink the edges of each body piece with a coordinating ink. Also add party hats from the Party Time die set. For fun, you can cut the hat out of multiple colors, cut some of the hats along the embossed lines and adhere to a base hat. Finally cut and assemble the Holiday Train and Train Carts out of party themed cardstock.

Instructions:
Using piece of cardstock cut with the shrub die, place on your card front and lightly ink above using a light blue ink and your favorite blending tool. Shift the stencil down and lightly ink again. Continue the process until your reach your horizon line. Flip your stencil to the straight edge and use as a mask for your inked sky background. Ink the exposed bottom portion of the card front with green ink. For extra dimension, you can use 3 green inks ranging from light to dark and blend a grassy bottom portion of the card. For this card, some water droplets were also added.

For the railroad track, adhere the black diecut fence upside down with the points hanging off of the edge of the card front.

Cut apart the fence posts from the woodgrain cardstock and adhere to the corresponding black fence posts on the card front. Flip the card front over and trim off the excess fence pieces hanging over the edge. Using a silver pen, place two dots top and bottom on the wood pieces for the railroad nails. Optional, use a green pen to flick blades of grass on the green portion of the card front.

Adhere the Holiday Train and Holiday Carts to your railroad track.

Cut the Monster Hugs and Let’s Party stamps in half to creat a new stamp saying Monster Party. Do not worry, you will still be able to use the stamps in the original word design for later projects.

Adhere your cardfront to your card base. Put your monsters in the train carts. Optional, for a smoke effect from the train engine, cut the train icing die from grey cardstock and adhere as if coming out of the engin

Happy Birthday Little Monster

July 19, 2022

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I adore the new Monster Release from Joset Designs. It has 3 adorable Monsters and is a must have in your stash. I used the Monster 1, Party Time, Monster Hugs Sentiment Stamps and Dotted Background. Below is the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7″ x 8 1/2″, score at 3 1/2″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Slimline)

Step 2 – Diecut Dotted Background Slimline using White Soft Finish. Insert the diecut back to the die but turn it and diecut again. There is very little overlap but that’s ok because it will be covered. Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 3 1/4″ x 8 1/4″. Place the Dotted Background diecut and with any color medium mark the center in the color you will fill. Remove the diecut and now color in a circle. You can use the diecut to make sure the whole circle is colored. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue and adhere to card front using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 3 – Diecut Monster 1 using Colored Cardstock or White Soft Finish and color in using any medium of your choice. I used Copics in order to create some dimension. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue and adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 4 – Diecut Party Time (Balloons, Party Horn and Party Hat) again in Colored Cardstock or White Soft Finish and color in. Assemble and adhere to card.

Step 5 – Stamp Monster Hugs Sentiment using Versamark, sprinkle White Embossing Powder and remove the excess, and heat set it with a heat tool. Trim it out and adhere to card.

This card was so much fun to make and will make any child happy to receive it. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

My Eyes on You

July 15, 2022

Karen here with a super fun creation using dies from the new monster designs by Joset. These monsters are SO fun, and the sentiments to go with them are just perfect!

I die cut the Birthday Flip Card from 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. The die cuts and scores in all the right places to make the rest of the card so easy to make. The green flower cardstock are also cut with dies that are part of the set, and I just taped them to some pink cardstock and fussy cut a tiny edge.

All of the eyes are different eyes from the monsters. I cut them with 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock and colored the “black” in with a very dark grey copic. To make them easy to apply, I cut them all out with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive. I sometimes added a white or black gel pen dot to the middles of the eyes.

on the inside of the flip, I put one of the Monster 1s. How cute is he? The sentiment from the new Monster Hugs set, I thought, was perfect with this card!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen
