Silk Microfine Glitters

Cardmaking Inspiration from the Design Team Joset Designs Silk Microfine Glitter Soft Finish Cardstock

Koalaty Friend…

February 25, 2020

Hi there! Samantha here, sharing with you a card using Joset’s Koala die. Koala’s are one of my favourite animals, so I was very pleased to finally have a play, and even more surprised how quickly the idea came together!

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Using a variety of green cardstock die cut the small leaves.

Step 2: Using kraft card die cut the tree trunk, and adhere this to a light blue square card (measurements: 10cm x 10cm)

Step 3: Adhere the tiny leaves around the tree trunk.

Step 4: Continue adhering the leaves until most of the blue area is full.

Step 5: On blue cardstock (measuring: 10.5cm x 14.5cm) die cut a large circle. Then adhere this on top of your tree.

(Optional: Add machine stitched details)

Step 6: Using grey, white and black cardstock – die cut the Koala.

Step 7: Assemble and adhere the Koala to your card front.

Step 8: Stamp the sentiment on blue card. Trim. Adhere to card front.

Step 9: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to white cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Green). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Repeat step 9 using Silk Microfine Glitter (Spring Peridot).

Step 10: Die cut the small hearts. Adhered this to the card front.

I love how framing the koala on a tree really makes him the feature on my card! He is rather adorable!

Happy Crafting!

Samantha

A Way With Words Joset Designs Silk Microfine Glitter

All That Glitters!

September 19, 2019

Hi friends, it’s Sandy Diller back with you today to share a fun and easy way to add some glam to your holiday season!

This project is perfect for gift giving or an easy kids activity. Let’s get started making these festive ornaments.

To make these ornaments I started with the clear glass bulbs that can be found in any of the big box stores. If you don’t find them now, it won’t be long before they show up. They come in many shapes and sizes and I have used a variety here. The tops pull right out for filling with your choice of décor.

As shown below – I have used the Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage to coat the inside of the bulb.

You can use as much as you like to coat the inside because what you don’t use will be returned to the bottle for future use. I like to fill mine about half way – cover the opening with my finger and – then move the liquid around until the inside is completely coated. Try not to shake it because that causes bubbles. Return unused liquid to the jar. If you should get a bubble, turn the ornament upside down and the bubbles will slide out. You may have to give it a little shake or tap.

Once the inside of the bulb is coated with the Decoupage Finish – and while still wet – the Silk Microfine Glitter should be added. Once again, no need to be frugal with the glitter as the unused portion will be returned to the jar for another use. Cover the opening and this time you can feel free to shake it until the entire inside is coated with glitter. Return remaining glitter to the jar. Depending on where you live, you may want to leave the lid off the glitter jar and allow some time for the glitter to dry out. I live in Arizona so it doesn’t take long. If you live in a humid climate you may want to set the open jar aside over night.

Using the Flourished Christmas Minis, cut two designs from silver paper and glue to the outside of the ornament. When the inside is completely dry, replace cap and tie a bow on top.

Tip: First add Double Sided Adhesive to the back of the paper before cutting the design. This way you will have a nice clean sticker to add to the ornament.

The process is exactly the same for all the ornaments, decorate as desired.

For this one, Iced Teal Silk Microfine Glitter and the new Snowflake die from Joset Designs was used.

Here Real Red Silk Microfine Glitter was used and another Snowflake from the same set as above. The Snowflake was cut apart so it would lie flat.

Here is an example of one of the beautiful colors found in the Earth Microfine Glitter Pallette. This one is further decorated with the Berry Branch die and Nuvo Drops for the berries. The branch was cut apart for a perfect fit.

I’m really fond of this one because of it’s unusual shape. After adding the Royal Teal Silk Microfine Glitter it became the perfect night sky. Some adorable little houses were added using the Village Edges die and the star is from the center of the snowflake used on the red ornament. The final touch is a stamped banner.

I have enjoyed sharing these ornaments with you and I do hope you will give it a try. I have linked all the products I used below for your shopping convenience.

Until next time – stay crafty,

Rose Gatefold Petal-Fold Card

July 4, 2017

Hi Crafty Friends,

 It’s Frances here and it’s my turn to post a tutorial today for the Die Cut Design Team. This time round I decided to play with the ModaScrap Gatefold – Elegant Roses die to create a “Petal-Fold” card. It is an elegant card, suitable for weddings, invitations or any occasion where you want something a little bit different.

As the cardstock I selected to use for my card was duo-tone (also called “duplex”) – dark red on one side and light red on the other – I decided to keep to the three colors of white, dark red and light red for my card. By keeping the insert loose, I could turn it with the back showing when the card is closed, revealing the light red through the openings of the “petals”.
