Joset Designs Planner Essentials

You’re so cute!

August 28, 2021

Today I made this cute whale that I combined with the lovely papers from Modacrap. I love the paperpads. They are so cute and colorfull. And collerfull is what I love!

For this card I used a slimline die. This die is from the new Planner Essentials set 41 – Rounded Corners Page. At first take this part of the die and your basepaper. In this case I took the paper with the whales in blue and red. The frame is also from the same set. The frame I made only in the soft finish cardstock because the background is already so colorfull.

On the back of the frame you can make two squares in different colors. For these squares I used papers with a bit of a calmer print as I’m planning to add the whale on one squares and a text on the other.

Than I took some brown cardstock on the back of my base slimline. I added some jute twine between the background paper and my cardstock. I left the jute a bit longer than my background so it would stick out on both end. You can make the frame stick out on the right side as well for a playful effect.

And then comes my favorite part of the card! A cute die from the collection of Joset. This time I choose the whale. He is so cute and matches so pretty with the paper. The whale I collered with Distress Ink. I used weathered wood for his body, stormy sky for the water splashes and fired brick for the mouth of the whale. I adhered the whale to the left square.

On the right side I made the word whale with the letter dies blackboard alphabet. This is one of my favorite dies. You can combine it with so much dies on so many creations.

Finally I added some decoration. In the corner a steering wheel and lifebuoy. These are parts from the Whale and the Octopus sets. On the right side of the frame are two holes, here I added some jute twine. It mached with the colors of the card.

I had fun creating this card and hopefully I inspired you to make your own version!

Glitter Princess

May 22, 2021

Hello every one! Today I make a slimline card with a cute little glitter princess. The Silk Microfine Glitter is a product that I used a lote in my creation, so also with this one.

At first is cut out a slimline card. One large and one a bite smaller. In the smaller one I made 3 squares. Used the 1698 stitched indented squares. On the picture I show on what sizes I cute out the squares. Hight of the card 20.5 cm. Each square is 4.5 cm. On the top and bottom 2 cm and between the 3 sqaures 1.5 cm. On the side of the sqaures 2 cm.

When you cute out the squares it look like this:

After that I made 3 blocks whit foam tape on the large slimline. The foam tape must fit behind the squares from the second slimline. In the blocks I put some sequin mix from 28 Lilac Lane. One the top of the blocks made a transparent sheet. So than you have 3 blocks whit shaker material. of course I choose purple and pink because I love that colors.

The second slimline I sprayed with distress oxide (kitsch flamingo, blueprint sketch). Sprayes from a little distrance. Than you have only splashes and not the hole background in the color.

After that you can glue the second slimline on top of the first. I used clear double sided adhesive. Because this is very strong on the trasparent sheet.

On top of the card a made a cute little princess with die 1790 (princess) and some details with 1798 (princess crown). The dress of the pricess used silk microfine glitter 656 Speckled Indigo. Love that color of course it is pink and purple. The details (crown, stars, letters) also used silk micofine glitter (619 fuchsia, 638 solar gold). The rest of the princess I colorize with distress ink ( blueprint sketch, picked raspberry, black soot, vintage photo, tattered rose). Details on the princess made with craft drops (cdm01 – metallic gold)

I put the princess in the middle of the slimline card. Under her feets the curl from the 1798 princess crown set. The rest of the details you can put them where you like them. In the coners of the card I made some pearls whit the craft drops.

I hope I inspire you to make a creation by yourself whit a lot of glitter and color!

Lovely greetz!

Ribbon Streamers Congratulations Card

October 17, 2020

Hey Artlets! It’s Suzanne here today!  Do you have a collection of gorgeous ribbons that are languishing away in a drawer, un-used but still loved?  That would be me!  So I decided I should think of some uses for them that didn’t involve bow-making.  (Like flower arranging, I’m hopeless at bow-making.)

Well what about 3D streamers? Here is what we can do!

First thing is to decide what ribbon you want to use.  You only need a small amount – 6” will do fine.  Depending on the length of your sentiment, you will want to choose between 5 and 7 ribbons.  Choose different colours and textures.  They should be double-sided ribbon as you will see both sides of the ribbon.

Now choose some cardstock.  It might be easiest to go with plain cardstock, but I had this patterned paper from the Fly & Scrap Collection that I thought would be fun and cheery.

Now let’s get down to the nitty gritty….!

Form an 8.5 x 3.75” tent-fold card base from cardstock or patterned paper. (It’s a slimeline card!)

Cut a panel 7.5 x 3” panel from coordinating cardstock.

Cut 7 pieces of ribbon measuring 5” each.  Lay the ribbon out like streamers on your panel in the order you prefer, giving them a single or double twist over the face of the panel.

Use Removable Tape to temporarily position the ribbons on the back. This way you can change your mind about their angle or number of twists.  When you’re happy with their position, use Clear Double Sided Adhesive to permanently adhere the ribbon to the panel.

Die cut Congratulations three times from three coordinating cardstocks. Adhere them together behind the C, the u and the n where it joins with the s at the end of the word. Use small pieces of rolled Clear Double Sided Adhesive or rolled Glue Dots. They don’t have to be a perfect stack, so a little colour peaking out makes it interesting.  I used the white diecut on the top so there was lots of contrast with the ribbon and cardstock.

Center Congratulations on the panel and adhere to the ribbons where they contact the back of the diecut so it “floats” on the ribbon.

Adhere the ribbon panel to the card base with foam adhesive.  And voila!  A card that is bright and a little bit different.

I’d love to see what you make using this technique!  Make sure you tag me on the Elizabeth Craft Design Family Facebook page so I don’t miss it!

Happy Creating! Suzanne
