Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. I have a fun card to share with you using the new Under The Sea release. Below are the steps to create your own Beach 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)
Step 2 – Diecut Adventure Edges (the cloud die) on scrap Cardstock. Place the diecut on the front of the card and apply using a Blender Brush and Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass. Repeat this step until you reach the middle of the card.
Step 3 – Diecut Sea Weed (the sand die) using White Soft Finish Card. Ink it using a Blender Brush and Ink of your choice.
Step 4 – Stamp Splish Splash sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink towards the left bottom of the sand created from Step 3.
Step 5 – Diecut Ocean Edges (x2) and apply ink to the top and fading out. Adhere to card the 2 waves and the sand from Step 3 using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 6 – Diecut Sea Weed (the stones, treasure chest and sea weed). Ink the pieces and assemble the treasure chest using Kids Choice Glue. I used Matte Metallic Cardstock for the treasure chest trims. Adhere the treasure chest, stones and sea weeds to the card front using Kids Choice Glue.
Step 7 – Diecut Sea Shells (crab) using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Ink the pieces and assemble using Kids Choice Glue. Adhere to card using Kids Choice Glue. For added interest apply dots to the eyes using a White Gel Pen.
Step 8 – Diecut Lighthouse (Sea Gulls) x 3 using soft grey Cardstock. Adhere to card using Kids Choice Glue.
This card is great for any occasion you may have forgotten. You can always change the sentiment for a different occasion. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!
Karen here today from Craftily Yours! I’m excited to be sharing with you some pages I created using the Planner line. These dies and stamps can be used for planning, but I also enjoy using them to document special moments in my life. Today’s post is all about a mighty fine time I had with three wonderful women at the last Scrapbook Expo in my area!
Winter blues got you down? Don’t worry, because the latest release from Joset will having you seeing sunny days and warm ocean hues!
Today I am playing around with the new Whale die set and and some watercolor to create this simple, yet summer fun card.
Step One: Die cut all the pieces from the Whale die set from some Watercolor Paper.
Step Two: Using either watercolors, or watercolor markers, color the die cut pieces.
Step Three: Using a waterbased ink you can blend, created a background of blue on a piece of 110lb Soft Finish Cardstock trimmed to 4.25×5.5. I used my distress oxides in both Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean.
Step Four: Using a stencil, created some texture on the background using a darker blue ink. I used Faded Jeans Distress Oxide through this circular stencil.
Step Five: Using both 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive and Kids Choice Glue, add the die cut image to the background.
Step Six: Using the new Splish Splash Sentiments stamp set, add a sentiment. I used two different sentiments in blue ink. I used Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide.
Step Seven: Add the inked background to an A2 card frame using some 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Eight: Spritz the background with some water to add some texture to the card, and add some extra inking around the edges to help ground the image.
Step Nine: Add some Transparent Crystal Craft Drops around the sentiment for a little extra bling.
I hope this card helps chase away your cold winter blues. Spring is just around the corner, but until then, your ocean hues are only a click away.

Hello everyone! Annette Green here again to share more of my Greenville planner pages. Today’s pages are about the early signs of progress toward our move. The house is in disarray, there’s paint swatches all over the walls, and my craft room is being reduced by half – which is a feat in itself!
While sorting through my craft room, I came across some tags I had experimented on with Distress Oxides, and some pages I created with my Gelli Plate. From a big stack, I pulled the greens, blues and yellows to coordinate with my Greenville planner.
I adhered one of the Gelli printed pages to the back of my existing page in my planner. This was the first paper in the photo above (far left) with a totally white background. I added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink over the entire surface, some stenciling of a die-cut clock, and then I stamped the dot pattern with black ink, using the Background Stamps 1 set.
From the dictionary collage page, I die-cut this pattern using the Planner Patterns die, then trimmed off the top right corner.
I adhered the cut piece to a graph patterned paper then trimmed around. This will become a unique pocket for my left page.
For my pages I die-cut the round hole reinforcers from this tag. I ended up die-cutting several more elements as you’ll see in the next few photos. I loved using up things I had in my stash!
I think my new favorite die set is Planner Essentials 21 Note Pieces. There are SO many great frames, fold-over tabs, banners, tags, and arrows! I’ve been keeping a list of what bigger ticket items we’ve sold and what is left to sell so I made a record of it here in our early stages of preparing to move. This will slip into the pocket on my left hand page. The photo on the left is my messy craft room.
My righthand page is cut from the Planner Essentials 6 set. The photo shows a mural I painted over 20 years ago is now being covered up with a neutral gray paint. It’s symbolic to me that things don’t last forever, only memories.
There are a lot of emotions that come with moving away from a home we’ve been in for 20 years. I’m not sad, actually rather excited, cut at the same time feeling sentimental. I think I’ll be glad I documented this process when I look back on it in the future.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Don’t fret if you can’t leave a comment here. If you wish to, you can hop over to my blog.
