Once Upon A Time Sentiments

Cardmaking Inspiration from the Design Team Joset Designs

Watercolor Spring

March 25, 2021

Hey Friends! It’s EK and today I am playing around with Joset’s die cut building scene Once Upon A Time die set and some watercolors. I have over the years successfully created with copic markers and die cut built pieces. I have played around with colored pencils, distress inks, and distress oxides with success. Well, today I am breaking out my watercolor palette and seeing if I can be successful once again.

Step One: Die cut the Once Upon A Time die set out of Watercolor paper.

Step Two: Using ECD’s Watercolor Palette, watercolor the die cut pieces.

Step Three: Using liquid adhesive, build the die cut pieces into their images. I used Kids Choice Glue.

Step Four: Using a piece of watercolor paper, create a watercolor background scene that is simple but shows both sky and grass. Let dry. Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Tape adhere the background to an A2 card frame.

Step Five: Adhere the mushroom and clouds to the background.

Step Six: Layer the rest of the die cut pieces into the scene.

Step Seven: Add a sentiment from the Once Upon A Time sentiment stamp set in pale blue ink.

Step Eight: To add more texture to the project, add Transparent Craft Drops onto the butterfly, reeds and flower center.

Step Nine: The card needed even more texture to ground everything, so using watercolor pencils, flick in grass blades in two shades of green.

Step Ten: Activate the grass with a watercolor brush to blend out the flicks.

What do you think? Was this experiment with die cut buildables and watercolor successful?

Would you be will to try this technique? Let us know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.

Princess & Fairy

February 5, 2021

Karen here! Just before the holidays, Joset designed and released the Once Upon a Time Collection. Because of holiday crafts, I felt like I didn’t get to play with this line nearly enough and decided to create a couple cards for today’s post using the Princess and the Fairy 1 die sets. The little fairy card would be good for the upcoming Valentine’s Day!

That sweet girl is the Princess. I die cut the pieces for her out of 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. For the pieces “on top”, I usually cut those with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive on the back to make it easier to assemble. I start by lining up the pieces as though I were going to put her together. This helps me to know which colors to use for different pieces.

For today’s post, I used Copic markers to color the girls. The princess used:

  • Dress, Shoes and Flower: B93, B95, B97, V22, V25
  • Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
  • Belt and Crown: Y23, Y26
  • Eyes: C7 and white gel pen

The card front was cut with the Fitted Rounded Rectangle. I added a strip from the Artsy Scenery Washi Tape collection and a stamp from the Once Upon a Time Sentiments.

The next card uses the Stitched Indented Rectangle and the Fitted Stars for the card front. The Fairy 2 die is colored with the same colors as the princess but I used Y13 and Y19 for the hair, V20 for the wings, E4 for the lips, and YG03, YG06 for the plant stem. I also added a sun and flower from the Once Upon a Time Accessories.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Happy Birthday Princess

August 23, 2020

Hello – Samantha here. Today I wanted to share with you what is perhaps one of the most pink card I’ve ever made!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Use pattern paper and cut out a card front. (Card Measurement: 10.5cm x 14.5cm) 

Add 5 machine stitched lines. Alternatively use a white pen to add line details.

Step 2: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to white cardstock. Die cut the crown outline as well as a few stars.

Step 3: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Silver). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 4: Use pink card to die cut the crown detailed die.

Step 5: Use light pink card to die cut the crown detail die.

Step 6: Assemble the crown as shown below. Use foam tape to adhere the light pink negative die cut details.

Step 7: Die cut extra stars using pink and silver card. Adhere the crown and stars as shown below.

Step 8: Stamp the sentiment onto pink card, trim, and adhere this to the card front using foam tape.

Step 9: Embellish the card with sequins, gems and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 side folding card base.

As you can see it’s like pink exploded onto my card. My 4 year old loves it. I hope you do to!

Happy Crafting!

Glitter Princess

August 17, 2020

IMG_0835Hey friends!  It’s EK, and I am popping in today with an over the top glitter card for a little princess in my life.  Let’s be honest, when dealing with the little princess in your life, it really should be over the top, and the new Princess Crown die set is perfect for a little bit of over the top glitter.

IMG_0825Step One:  Place some Clear Double Sided Adhesive over a piece of trimmed 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.  Die cut the Princess Crown die set over the Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

IMG_0826Step Two:  Peel back the adhesive paper of the crown shape die cut and adhere the detailed crown die cut over into the center of it.  Add Lavender Ice Silk Microfine Glitter over the die cut crown shape.

IMG_0827Step Three:  Peel the adhesive paper back from the detailed crown die cut and add Imperial Garnet Silk Microfine Glitter over it.

IMG_0828Step Four:  Add Bright Cranberry Silk Microfine Glitter over the Princess die cut and the heart from the detailed crown die cut.

IMG_0829Step Five:  Add Copper Rose Silk Microfine Glitter over the stars and flair die cut piece.

IMG_0830Step Six:  Trim a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches.  Blend dark water soluble ink over the cardstock and spray it with sparkling spray.  I used Black Soot Distress Oxide and Perfect Pearls Spray.  Let Dry.

IMG_0831Step Seven:  Die cut the blended piece of cardstock with a large die from the Stitched Indented Rectangle die set.

IMG_0833Step Eight:  Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the die cut blended cardstock to an A2 card frame.    Then add the glitter crown on top of the blended cardstock.  Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the rest of the die cuts to the card frame.

IMG_0834Step Nine:  Using a stamping platform, stamp stars and a sentiment from the new Once Upon a Time Sentiments stamp set using white pigment ink.

IMG_0836I wish you could see exactly how sparkly this card is with all this glitter.  I just adore how the pinks and purples just pop with the black behind it.

IMG_0837Let us know in the comments below if you would craft with this much glitter for the little princess in your life.  Until then, happy crafting.

Have A Magical Day

August 16, 2020

Hello friends and welcome, it’s Sandy Diller, today I have a magical card with an added bonus. I’m using the new Storybook collection from Joset. This new release is filled with whimsical characters that make you believe in magic.

The prince and princess stand as separate characters so when you display this fun card you can use your imagination and place them anywhere you like.

To make the castle – cut the Castle Folding Card twice and glue them together as shown below.

White Soft Finish Cardstock was used here and then some gray ink for shading, stenciling and stamping with the bricks from the Prince and Frog Sentiments. The window openings in the die were covered with gold paper from the back.

Brightly colored papers were used to add a whimsical look to this castle.

The stone facing for the door was made by using the included die and shading them with gray ink. The same die was used to add some windows on the the sections that needed them. The door opening was backed with a piece of vellum.

The castle was folded at each crease in different directions to make it stand up. The finishing touches for the castle were the glittered flags.

The Princess and Prince were assembled and then added to a separate stand that was made by using White Soft Finish card stock cut 5.5″ by 3″ and scored at 1.5″ and 4″, folded back to make them stand up. The paper was stenciled using an older stencil from my stash but you could use any paper that has stones or brick pattern. Using some dies from the Once Upon a Time Accessories die set I added a flower and then stamped and colored the frog from the Prince and Frog Sentiments.

My card still needs a sentiment so when I’m ready to send this card I will stamp it with one of the great sentiments from the Once Upon A Time Sentiments. This card folds up completely flat for mailing.

Have A Magical Day,

Sandy
