Joset Designs Silk Microfine Glitter Soft Finish Cardstock Susan's Garden Club

For The Party Animal

May 13, 2019

Hello & Welcome! Samantha here. Today’s card is one of those cards that once you’ve put it all together, you love it so much you’d rather frame it then give it away! Well that’s how I feel about it anyways…

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Use both the Frame It – Stitched Rectangle and Frame It – Stitched Square die as shown below to create a ‘photo’ frame die cut.

Step 2: Stamp the Sentiment.

Step 3: Using shades of green cardstock and pattern paper die cut several leaves from Tropical Florals and Trio of Leaves.

Step 4: Arrange the leaves on a card front measuring 12.5cm x 17.5cm. When you are happy with the placement of the leaves adhere them down. Use foam tape to adhere the ‘photo’ frame die cut.

(Optional) Add machine stitched details

Step 5: Die cut the zebra and Giraffe die – assemble these as shown, tucking them behind the ‘photo’ frame die cut.

Step 6: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to white card stock and die cut the hat and glasses from the Party Accessories die set.

Step 6: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (in Royal Blue and Fruscia). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle. Complete assembling the party accessories.

Step 7: Adhere the Party Accessories to the die cut animals. Adhere card front to a 5″ x 7″ card base. Embellish with googly eyes, sequins and a twine bow.

I love how this card came together – I think I’m going to have to buy a frame for it! The safari animals are that cute, I don’t think I could part with the card. Do you have projects that you end up just keeping for yourself?

Happy Crafting!

11 Gifts For Mom On Mother’s Day!

May 12, 2019

A very Happy Mother’s Day to all of the wonderful mother’s out there!

Today gives us such a wonderful opportunity to honor the women in our lives who raised us, praised us and made us who we are. They certainly have been a huge and important part of our lives!

Along with our Design Team, we put together 11 projects for mom on Mother’s Day –– enjoy!

Kathy Sabarese

To honor my mother, this background with the windmill pays tribute to her PA ‘Dutch’ heritage, and she loved tulips! I’ve put the tulips in Susan’s Garden Watering Can, which has a Mandala geometric pattern of ‘dots’ which are done by Tibetan Buddhists called ‘Dkyil-khor.’ This literally means ‘ that which encircles a centre.’ My dear friend, fellow stamper and tole painter, Barb Pelak, was kind enough to do a pattern on the Watering Can for me! I colored my tulips to match her colors in the pattern.
Happy Mother’s Day mom.  Miss you lots!

Floating Monkey Card

May 8, 2019

Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Today I have a super fun card to share using the Monkey and Party Accessories dies from Joset Designs. I don’t normally make card sizes other than A2 or 6×6 but for this one I wanted lots of balloons to give the illusion of a floating monkey. The finished card measures 7 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ folded. Below you will find the easy steps to create your own floating monkey card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish 110lbs Cardstock to 7 1/4″ x 7 1/2″, score at 3 3/4″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card.

Step 2 – Trim Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock to 3 1/4″ x 6 3/4″. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Trim White Soft Finish to 3″ x 6 1/2″. Stamp Safari Sayings Sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. (I used washi tape to cover Go Bananas before inking the stamp. Be sure to remove the washi tape before stamping). Adhere to card with 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 4 – Using Life Changing Brushes apply Distress Oxide Inks on White Soft Finish Cardstock. (I used Scattered Straw and Walnut Stain).
Diecut Monkey using the correct colored cardstock for each piece. Assemble the Monkey using Fine Tweezers and Kids Choice Glue. Be sure to use a black fine tip marker to draw the mouth (just follow the embossed area).

Step 5 – Using Life Changing Brushes apply Distress Oxide Inks on scrap pieces of White Soft Finish Cardstock using various colors. Diecut Party Accessories (Balloon and String 8 times). Assemble the string behind the balloon using Kids Choice Glue. I layered all the balloons so it was one piece. Intertwine the string around the tail of the monkey. Adhere to card using Kids Choice Glue.

The Floating Monkey Card makes a fun birthday card that will anyone smile who receives it. Below is a link to all the products used. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Happy Mother’s Day Gift Box. Mother’s Day is only 6 days away, so why not make a pretty gift box for that gift for mom?

To create this gift box, I’ve used dies and patterned paper from ModaScrap as well as dies from Joset Designs. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

Step 2. From the Words 3 – Happy Holidays die, die cut the “Happy Mother’s Day” sentiment out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 3. Die cut three Leafy Branch 2 out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Shabby Shutters Distress Ink over the entire surface of each leafy branch. Trim the branches to your desired length.

Step 4. Choose two of the Happy Flowers. Die cut the two Happy Flowers twice out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, bend Picked Raspberry Distress Ink over the entire surface of the happy flowers.

Step 5. Assemble your Star Pillow Box.

Step 6. Adhere two of the happy flowers together and finish off the center of the flower with a Transp. Glitter/Gold Dots. Adhere the last two happy flowers together and finish off the center of the flower with a Transp. Glitter/Gold Dots.

How To Create This Happy Spring Card

April 24, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Happy Spring Card. Spring is definitely here on the west coast of Canada and has been providing a ton of inspiration for my projects these days.

To create this card, I’ve used dies and patterned paper from ModaScrap as well as a stamp set from Joset Designs. I hope that you enjoy my tutorial!

Step 1. From the Blue Cotton Candy Paper Pack, you’ll need the white flower kraft patterned paper. Die cut the 4″ Dashing Rectangle out of the patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of the paper using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 2. Die cut the 3 1/2″ Dashing Rectangle out of the White Soft Finish Cardstock. Sprinkle Aquamarine and Jade Magenta Nuance lightly in the middle of the rectangle piece. Spritz the powder with water. Once the paper has dried, ink the edges of the paper using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 3. Die cut the 2 1/4″ Dashing Circle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Cottage Ivy Memento Ink to the branch stamp from the Wedding Sentiments stamp set and start stamping in the circle. Reapply ink the branch as many time as needed to complete a circle of branches.

Step 4. Apply Onyx Black Versafine Ink to the Happy Spring stamp from the Spring Sentiments stamp set and stamp in the center of the circle. Add a Transp.Glitter/Gold Dot in between each stamped branch in the circle. Ink the edges of the circle using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 5. From the Wood Effect Paper Pack, you’ll need to choose one of the wood patterned papers. Die cut the 2 3/4″ Dashing Circle out of the patterned paper piece. Ink the edges of the paper using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step 6. Die cut the Lace card out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the Lace card down to 4″.

Step 7. Die cut the three Dragonflies out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Lightly sprinkle Jade and Aquamarine Magenta Nuance powder overtop of the dragonflies. Spritz the powder with water.

Step 8. Adhere the 3 1/2″ Dashing Rectangle piece to the 4″ Dashing Rectangle piece. Adhere the lace card element to the left hand side of the 4″ Dashing Rectangle.

Step 9. Adhere the Happy Spring circle to the wood circle. Foam square the wood circle 1 1/8″ from the left and 3/4″ from the top of the 4″ Dashing Rectangle.

Step 10. Adhere the dragonflies as desired around the Happy Spring circle. To finish off the card, cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4″ x 10 1/2″, score at 5 1/4″. Adhere the card front to the card base.

Thanks for joining me today. I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Happy Spring Card.

How To Create These Clean And Simple Hexagon Cards

April 21, 2019

Hello everyone, it’s Sanna Lippert here today again, sharing my April guest design team project with you. I love basic dies for their versatility, and wanted to show how to create these fun and colorful –– but clean and simple –– cards with just a few easy-to-follow steps.

Here is what I did:
Step 1: Die cut 12 hexagon pieces –– three of each of the 4 smallest sizes from the Fitted Hexagons die set, from white Soft Finish Cardstock with your die cutting machine.
Step 2: Fold a card base from white Soft Finish Cardstock approximately 14,5 x 10,5 cm in size and arrange the die cut hexagon pieces onto the card base.
Step 3: Now place the die cut hexagons onto a craft mat in the exact same order and take three tones of Distress Ink to color them with an ink blending tool. Blend the colors together to create a gradient color pattern.
Step 4: Adhere the inked hexagons in place with Kids Choice glue or Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Cut off any residues with scissors.

Step 5: Add water splatters onto the inked areas and let sit a bit, then dab with a piece of cloth.
Step 6: Die cut a Fishtail Banner from white Soft Finish Cardstock and stamp a sentiment from General Sentiments clear stamp set with black stamp ink onto the banner.
Step 7: Adhere the smallest hexagons and the banner with 3D foam pads onto the card base and add a few silver sequins for decoration. The tweezers are great for this purpose!

I’ve also recorded a video for you to watch, to give you a better idea of each particular step. Hope you like it!

Also while I was at it, I created an additional card, with yellow, orange and pink Distress Ink tones and the Stitched Hexagons die set. What a big difference it makes by only changing a color scheme!

That’s all from me today! I hope I could inspire you a bit with my April post. I’ll be back in June with another guest post. See you then!

Wishing you a great, crafty day!!

  • Using some Clear Double-Sided Adhesive Tape, adhere each layer on top of the other.

Step 2: Heart Grapevine Wreath

  • Using the tweezers in the 4 Pces All Metal Tool Set, shape the wreaths to give them dimension.
  • With the Beacon Kid’s Choice Glue, adhere the wreaths onto the card base, the first one on the wrong side and the second one on the right side.

  • With the right side up, draw some more vein on each side of the main vein.
  • With a darker shade of green and a dauber, shade the edges of each leaves.
