A Masculine Distressed Layout

July 31, 2019

Good morning!
I am a proud mom of two boys and therefor have created many masculine layouts.
There are so many awesome die from Elizabeth Craft including the new planner essentials dies and stamps that are perfect when creating those manly layouts!

To create this layout:

Step 1: after choosing your main sheet ink the outside edge then cover both sides of your paper with clear gesso and allow to dry or use your heat gun to dry. *covering both sides helps to cut down on warping that you may get when you use mixed media products.

Step 2: taking your planner essentials patterns 2 stamp, stamp the flowery looking stamp with brown ink at 1 inch from the left edge of the paper. then towards the top at about 5 inches from the left, then slightly higher at 6 inches, then closer to the bottom at 9 inches and again at 10 inches lower than the one at 9 inches. Allow to dry or set with your heat gun.

Step 3: taking a coordinating color of mist, use a paint brush to highlight these stamped images.

Step 4: mix another coordinating color of powder colorant (i.e. magicals) with embossing paste and using a palette knife apply beside and an top of stamped images and set with heat gun.

Step 5: die cut each of the following using coordinating papers:

Ink the edges of all the die cuts.

Step 6: assemble as shown.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Holiday Season Memories

July 28, 2019

Everything about this card reminds me of Christmas growing up. My Oma would have these beautifully painted wooden Christmas trinkets she brought over from Germany –– and every Christmas they would make their way back into her home bringing Christmas cheer and excitement into the house.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Using a variety of cardstock and specialty paper die cut all the pieces in the Holiday Birdhouse die.

Step 2: Stamp the sentiment on a kraft card front measuring 10.5cm x 15.5cm.

Step 3: Using red and yellow cardstock cut out 4 thin strips and adhere these to the top and bottom of your cardfront.

Step 4: (Optional) Add machine stitched detail to your card front.

Step 5: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to kraft card stock and die cut the birds from the Holiday Birdhouse die set.

Step 5: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Light Gold). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 6: Assemble all the die cut Birdhouse pieces to the center of your card front. Embellish card with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 cardbase.

Hope you enjoyed this bit of Christmas in July inspiration.

Happy Crafting!

Sweet Raccoon

July 23, 2019

It’s Karen here today. I have been afraid of raccoons since I was a little girl. My family and I were camping at Big Sur, and when I went to take the garbage out at night, they jumped out at me! Ok, they were just there….but for a little girl, it was pretty scary. The brand new Raccoon die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, however, isn’t scary at all.

Forest Scene Card Using The New Release

July 21, 2019

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Welcome back to another release from Joset Designs! That means additional character dies –– there are 5!!! A Reindeer, Fox, Raccoon, Owl and Winter Bird along with Forest Accessories that you will absolutely adore. There is also some fun dies for the Holiday season which I will show in upcoming posts.

For today’s card, I used the Winter Bird, Fox and Forest Accessories to create a Forest Scene. Below are the steps to create your own Forest Scene 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 vertical side fold card. (A2 size)

Step 2 – Diecut Adventure Edges (clouds die) with scrap cardstock to use as a stencil. Using any ink of your choice create the clouds directly on the card front by placing your stencil and ink at the edges. I used Distress Oxides Salty Ocean.

Step 3 – Apply ink to White Soft Finish Cardstock. I used Distress Inks Vintage photo and Walnut. Diecut Winter Bird with appropriate colors and assemble the pieces using Kid’s Choice Glue. Adhere the branch to the card using Kid’s Choice Glue and the bird using foam tape. (I made the bird into a robin to show you that it can be used for any kind of bird).

Step 4 – Apply Ink to White Soft Finish Cardstock. I used Distress Inks Vintage Photo, Barn Door and Citrus Green. Diecut Forest Accessories to appropriate colors and assemble and adhere to card using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 5 – Apply Ink to White Soft Finish Cardstock. I used Distress Oxide Peeled Paint. Diecut Tree (the grass die) and adhere to card using foam tape.

Step 6 – Apply ink to White Soft Finish Cardstock. I used Distress Inks Wild Honey for the main body. Diecut Fox with appropriate colors and assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue. Adhere to card using foam tape. (I omitted one leg to give the appearance it was lying on the tree stump).

Step 7 – Stamp Sarafi Saying using Versafine Onyx Black Ink to the bottom of the card. I used the Wild from one of the sentiments by masking the rest of the sentiment with Washi Tape. Ink the sentiment, remove the washi tape then stamp the image.

This card can be used for many occasions by changing the sentiment, colors and characters. Below are the links for all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
