Mini Slimline Happy Halloween Card

September 6, 2021

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. I have a spooktacular card to share with you using the Scarecrow die. I just love how it glows against my background. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7” x 6”, score at 3 1/2” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 3 1/2” x 6”. Apply ink of your choice. I used Distress Oxide in Wlted Violet, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot. Splash some water and wait 15 seconds and then place a Paper Towel on top to absorb with water. Let dry then adhere the panel to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Diecut Halloween Scenery using Black Cardstock. Stamp Spooky Sentiment using Versamark. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a Heat Tool. (Both Halloween Scenery and Spooky Sentiment is discontinued so this will apply to anyone who already has it in their stash. Also I did some masking to only have the Happy Halloween, simply place Washi tape on top of the areas you don’t want to stamp, ink it up then before stamping remove the Washi tape). Adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 4 – Diecut Scarecrow using various colors of cardstock. I added some shading to the pumpkin head and arms using Distress Oxide Ripe Persimmon and Black Soot to the clothing. Assemble using Kids Choice Blue and adhere it to the card using Foam Tape.

The Scarecrow is a fun die and can be used on Tags, cards and other projects. Below is a link to the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting.

Fairy Tale Table Decor

October 18, 2020

Hey Friends! It’s EK and last week I create a Halloween table display featuring a whole host of Joset’s dies. Well, I am at it again, not because I am trying to start a trend (even though I think it would be a really cool trend), but because my 10 year old has requested a table decoration for her room featuring a little bit of fairy tale magic. My kiddo’s favorite princess has always been Cinderella, and I realized that I really had all the necessary dies to recreate the story in a single display from different Joset collections.

Step One: Die cut from 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock the pieces from the Princess die set. Color the pieces with copic markers. Assemble the pieces using Kids Choice Glue.

Step Two: Die cut the bushes, tree stump and mushroom from the Forest Accessories die set and 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Color the die cuts with copic markers. Use Kids Choice Glue to assemble the pieces of the mushroom.

Step Three: Die cut the pumpkin pieces of the Pumpkin die set. Color this with copic markers and assemble.

Step Four: Die cut the mice from both the Scarecrow die set and the Forest Accessories die set. Color the mice.

Step Five: Die cut two grass strips and the clouds from the Tree die set. Color the die cuts.

Step Six: Using a 6x6x2 inch canvas, paint grass and a road onto the front and sides using acrylic paint. Let dry.

Step Seven: Die cut the pieces of the Castle Folding card out of 110lb Soft Finish Cardstock. Color the castle with copic markers and assemble. I glued the back of the card to castle to help add stability. Fill the window with Transparent Crystal Craft Drops. Hot glue the castle to the back of the canvas. Hot glue the clouds to the back of the castle allowing them to float out.

Step Eight: Trim the grasses to fit the width of the canvas leaving room for the road. Using hot glue adhere the scene to the canvas laying the different pieces.

I hope you get a kick seeing how I constructed this table top decoration. Yes it is a little fragile due to the different pieces being made of paper, but if you leave the decor simply sitting on a piece of furniture it is perfectly safe. There are so many different stories that we can tell using the different dies from Joset’s collections.

Let me know in the comments below what story you would want to see next. Until then, happy crafting.
