Live in the Moment

August 25, 2020

Karen here today sharing a card that was very fun to make as I got to get all inky to make it. The sentiment “Live in the Moment” seems to be excellent advice these days!

To create the background for this card, I used 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock. I smeared some Distress Oxide in Spun Sugar on my craft mat and added some water and smooshed my paper into it. Then I did the same with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide. I finished it up with some splatters of Picked Raspberry. I cut this piece with a Stitched Rectangle die.

Then I colored up another piece of Soft Finish Cardstock with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide, add Double Sided Adhesive (101mm) and die cut the Symbol Background Die and stuck that to the card front.

Next, I die cut the flowers from the Cherry Blossom Branch with another piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock colored with Worn Lipstick. For these, I also dabbed them straight onto a Picked Raspberry Distress Ink as shown below then shaped the flowers a little.

For the leaves, I used Lucky Clover Distress Oxide. Then I dabbed them with Embossing Dabber and added some Weathered Wood Embossing Glaze. I also shaped the leaves just by pinching them together.

The branch is colored with Vintage Photo Distress ink. For the flower centers, I used Craft Drops in White. The sentiment is from the Zen Sentiments set and is die cut with a Diagonal Stitched Fishtails die.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Craftily yours, Karen

Panda Bear Card

December 29, 2019

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. I adore Panda Bears and, when Joset came out with the Panda Bear Character Die, I knew I had to play with it. I love the Black White Colors against a Red Background and touches of gold. Below you will find the steps to create your own Panda Card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half for a horizontal side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 – Diecut Dashing Rectangles using Red Cardstock. Adhere to card base using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Diecut Symbol Background using Gold Mirror Cardstock. Adhere to card towards the right side using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 4 – Diecut Panda Bear using White and Black Cardstock for the appropriate pieces. Assemble and adhere to card using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 5 – Stamp Zen sentiments using Versamark on Black Cardstock. Sprinkle Gold Embossing Powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a Heat Tool. Trim the sentiments and adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 6 – For added interest and sparkle randomly adhere Red Jewels.

I hope today’s card gave you some inspiration. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Peace, Balance, Happiness Card.

I have been loving creating with Joset’s new release and I hope that my card inspires you to use her new dies on your next project. You’ll want to read below as I have a tutorial for you on how to recreate my card at home!

Step One. Die cut the 4 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of a piece of asian inspired patterned paper. Ink the edges of the square using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut the 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square out of Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Three. Die cut the Symbol Background out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Fired Brick Distress Ink over the entire surface of the symbol. Ink the edges of the symbol using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. Die cut all three of the Bamboo out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Tea Dye Distress Ink over the entire surface of each bamboo.

Step Five. Apply Emboss It Ink to the Peace, Balance and Happiness Sentiments from the Zen Sentiments stamp set and stamp onto a piece of Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock. Sprinkle Kells Gold Modern Gilding Powder over each word. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Once the sentiments have cooled, cut each word into a strip.

Step Six. Adhere the 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square to the 4 3/4″ Stitched Indented Square.

Step Seven. Adhere the Symbol Background to the middle of the 4 1/4″ Stitched Indented Square.

Step Eight. Use foam squares to adhere the three bamboo pieces to the middle of the symbol background.
