Celebrating 60

June 5, 2023

Hello everyone – Jackie here today. My brother is going to be 60 very soon (how did that happen so quickly!) so I have bought him a bottle of champagne to celebrate which gave me the inspiration for this card.

Step One:

Die cut a pretty edge border in dark pink card then glue to the reverse side of a prepared panel measuring approximately 5.5″ x 3.5″ or 14 x 9cm. Attach the prepared panel using 3d foam pads to the front of a top folding A2 card blank 5.5″ x 4.25″ or 14 x 10.7cm

Step Two:

Trim another panel measuring 4.5″ x 2.75″ or 11.5 x 7cm then splatter with watercolour paints, here I used colours yellow, blue and purple. Fix the panel to the front using more 3d foam pads.

Step Three:

Build the Monster as normal and ink around the edges to give him a bit of dimension. Add a couple of pieces of card to the reverse side of the monster then fix him to the card front, this will raise him slightly from the panel.

Step Four:

Trim down another edge border and add to the right hand side of the panel. This step can be done in step two: It was a detail I added after I attached the splattered panel.

Step Five:

Die cut all the words, shadows and numbers twice. Glue them all together then add them to the card front, the layering will add dimension and texture.

Step Six:

Finish off by adding the champagne glass. Die cut the glass from vellum and use a yellow marker to add dots on the reverse side, fix the glass to the monsters hand using a tiny piece of double sided tape.

That is my card for today, You can make this work for any occasion and change the colours to suit you.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you to have a go. Happy crafting – Jackie xx

Monster Birthday

May 22, 2023

Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. I have some birthday parties coming up for some little boys and needed a boy themed card. Today I am sharing one of them.


Cut and assemble the monster from the Monster 3 die set.  Cut a card base from blue cardstock. Cut “Happy Birthday” from the Birthday Flip Card die set using the same blue cardstock that was used for the card base. Cut a rectangle from white cardstock from the Fitted Rectangles die set.


Using blue ink, lightly stencil ink onto two corners of the white cardstock using the stencil from the Planners Stencils 1 set.

Adhere “Happy Birthday” to the top of the stenciled rectangle

Stamp “Little Monster” from the Monster Hugs stamp set. I cut the stamp in half but you can make off “Happy Birthday” if you are uncomfortable cutting the stamps apart 

Adhere the monster to the card panel

Adhere the card panel to the card base and then the card is complete

Monster Love!

February 6, 2023

Hello everyone, Jackie here with today’s blog post.. I am still in a lovey-dovey valentines kind of mood so here is another valentines card for today’s inspiration, of course this can be changed for different occasions too.

Step One:

Start by ink swooshing across the front of a 5.25×5.25″ top folding card blank, here I used a distressed ink cube weathered wood.

Step Two:

Round the top right corner with a large corner punch then fix a medium sized die cut heart shape towards the centre top, use 3d foam pads for added height.

Step Three:

Make the biscuit. Die cut the half eaten biscuit shape twice, use a tiny heart die to cut out the centre of one biscuit piece. Glue the two together then fix a red die cut heart into the centre and ink around the edges with a light brown ink.

Step Four:

Die cut and build the monster then ink around the edges for texture. Attach the monster to the card front along with the biscuit.

Step Five:

Stamp out then die cut the sentiment, you will need to trim off the (‘re) from the word you’re. I have die cut a further two sentiment pieces in black card to help the sentiment stand out a bit more. Fix in place using more 3d foam pads.

Finish off by adding a couple more tiny die cut hearts, you could add some bling here if you wanted to.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I have inspired you to have a go at my card – Happy crafting Jackie x

Joset Designs Planner Pocket Pages Pop it Ups

Witch way to the candy?!

August 29, 2022

Yeah, I’m already itching a bit, could that be because of the mini-mini monsters or because Halloween is approaching?? Esther has again designed something beautiful, a die set for the Pocket Pages, Pocket Pages Fillers is the name of the set, so cool and handy! With that I made this page for my Halloween album this year. I’m also trying to make it a Day by Day for October, simply because I love Halloween, so much to live up to. Even though the kids are grown up, I still like to decorate the house. Not as extensive as when the children were small, but pumpkins, my witches, the broom and mini horror houses. I love it this time of year! Finally we slowly go to autumn, everything dies down a bit to bloom again next spring. The real horror is not for me but a little itch is allowed.

It looks like an ordinary page in my planner, but nothing could be further from the truth.

When you open the page, a lot of monsters appear that have found a tree full of candies. They lustily snack on it, until it even makes them a little nauseous.

It has become a Pop Up page.

So cozy that Pop-Up in your planner!

This decoration is stuck on the case with double-sided tape. Below is a description of how to create a Pop-Up in the Planner Page Fillers.

Take a strip of design paper of 11 x 22cm and fold it in half to form a card of 11 x 11cm.

Place it with the score line against the cut edge of your chosen die. I used the largest square from the Planner Page Fillers set 1974 from E.C.D. Secure the die with a piece of washi tape and run it through your machine.

You now have a card of 11 x 11cm with a beautiful border!

Place the chosen die from Joset’s General POP-UP set 1389 AGAINST the scoreline of your card.

Just to be safe, I secure the die with Washi tape. Then unfold the card and run through your machine again.

Now you have a nice POP-UP card but it doesn’t fit in your Pocket Page yet.

To do this, cut the bottom edges off the card. Slide the card into your Pocket Page

Fold the Pop-Up together as it will be and secure the cut edges to the Pocket Page with washi tape.

Now the fun starts!!! Dressing up your Pop-Up.

So get started quickly!

I hope you like this Pop-Up idea in de Pocket Pages and that you get inspired to make your own.

I really love the Pop-Ups!

Have fun with it!

See you next time,

Bee-utiful buzy bee

August 24, 2022

Hi everyone, Jackie here today with a monster mash up! I have used all three monster die set’s to create this super Bee-utiful buzy bee card.

Step One:

First create the background using the hexagon stencil and yellow ink, gently ink through the stencil with a sponge dauber leaving a small amount of white around the edges.

Step Two:

Next build the bee. I have listed which die’s you will need but you can change any for what you have in your stash. Ink around the yellow parts with dark yellow ink.

Head – Monster 3

Legs, Arms and Eyes – Monster 1

Wings and Body – Monster 2

Antenna – Party Time

For the bee body, use the largest body die from Monster 2 to draw around and fussy cut out (I did not want the circular pattern embossed onto the piece) use the same die to draw around again this time into black card then trim three bands as shown in the photo.

Step Three:

Die cut the antenna twice then add some glossy accents or clear 3d glue then once dry fix to the bees head.

Step Four:

Die cut a a stitched rectangle and layer onto a top folding A2 card blank using 3d foam pads. Next die cut a gold frame. Lay two hexagon dies one inside the other then secure together with a small piece of washi tape.

Step Five:

Stamp out and white heat emboss the sentiment onto black card then trim down and fix in place on the card front using 3d foam pads, add a few gold gems to finish.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you have been inspired to have a go at creating a new creature from these fabulous monster die’s. Until next time happy creating – Jackie x

Monster-fied Critters

August 12, 2022

Hi, Karen here today. For today’s post, I decided to “monster-fy” a couple of Joset’s other critters. I made the funniest dog and a very unusual elephant as the centerpieces for some fun cards.

First up, I used the Dog die set to create this funny little critter. The face is from the Monster 2 set. I put the head with the eyes, nose, ears and body from the Dog. I love how silly he looks. I used Kraft cardstock for most of the pieces (except the eyes and teeth which are 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. The dog is framed by a Stitched Circle Die. Using 101mm behind pieces like the eyes before diecutting makes them so easy to adhere.

The face, ears, legs and body are edged with a tiny bit of Tea Dye Distress Ink. The collar is colored with a Copic Marker as is the tag and eyes.

I used all of the pieces of the Elephant die except I turned the body sideways to make him unusually skinny. haha I also used the head and horns from the Monster 1 die set.

I cut most of the pieces with very light grey cardstock and edged them with a bit of Hickory Smoke Distress Ink. The ears are cut from 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock and are colored with Kitsch Flamingo Distress Ink. The eyes and ears are cut using 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to make them easy to put together! I used the Monster Hugs stamps on both cards.

Thank you for stopping by!

Craftily yours, Karen

Monster grad

July 20, 2022

Hi everyone it’s Jackie back again today. Recently my son graduated from university so I just had to use the new monster die’s from Joset to create his celebration card, this design has a little bit of hand drawn fussy cutting however you can leave the mortarboard off then this would be suitable for any celebration.

Step One:

Start by die cutting a whole load of confetti pieces using the die set – party time shapes 1978. Glue all the shapes on to the front of a top folding card blank measuring 5.25 x 5.25″

Step Two:

Cut out a circle of white card measuring approximately 4″ ink the centre in a circular shape (I used a acetate template I made from a smaller die) stamp out the sentiment towards the edge then add a couple of lines using a black pen. Fix in place using 3d foam pads.

Step Three:

Draw and fussy cut all the pieces for the mortarboard, I didn’t worry to much about being accurate with the diamond shape however you may have a die that would work for this step.

Roll the tiny fringe piece and glue it to the end of the thin strip, punch a tiny hole into the centre of the diamond piece and thread the tassel end though and glue in place, fussy cut a half moon shape then attach the two together with a couple of 3d foam pads. see photo in step 4.

Step Four:

Die cut and build the monster in which ever colour way you like. Attach the mortarboard then fix him in place using more 3d foam pads.

Step Five:

Next create the bubbly and glass, both of these die’s come in the same set – party time shapes 1978.

Die cut the bottle into green card then again into gold card fussy cutting the gold top part, cut a small white label and add a tiny message. Cut the glass into acetate then add gold fine glitter to the reverse side to resemble bubbles.

Thank you for stopping by today.. I hope I have inspired you to make a monster celebration card.

Happy crafting Jackie x

Happy Birthday!

July 18, 2022

Hello all, Alice here. Today it’s my turn to show you another creation with the super cute monsters! I used the birthday flip card which is such a fun die. This set includes the Happy Birthday Sentiment and then I used Monster 1, 3 and the Party Time dies to decorate. Let’s get started!

On the front I used one of the cute monsters. He eats the letters of the text. He really is a naughty one. I die cut the monster from White Soft Finish Cardstock and colored him with blue Distress Ink. On the front I used brick paper. It is Crafters Consertium brand paper. I thought this fits perfectly with the card.

When you open the card, there is another monster hiding on the back. He’s having a party with streamers and cake. The garlands are made from the party set.

I really like how you can give the card two sides. It’s a fun surprise for the recipient.

I hope you like this card as much as I do and you wil get to work on it too!

Greetings Alice

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
