A Way With Words Cardmaking Elizabeth Craft Designs General Joset Designs Soft Finish Cardstock

Happy Day!

August 17, 2019

I’ve been seeing a lot of my friends post pictures of their first kid getting their driving permit or actually driving off to school. I’m sure they are as thrilled as this puppy, ears flying back as he takes to the road with his fishing rod. I’m still safe for another year…

Big moments deserve big cards.

To make this card:

I found that with the jeep die and the word dies, a 5″x7″ card base works a lot easier than my usual A2 base. I used a dark gray stock as my base – the same as my bit of road showing on the bottom. In fact, that bit is from trimming down my 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of card stock after folding in half to make my card base. Use your scraps as soon as possible! Lol!

How happy is this puppy?!

Die cut all the pieces you need: My jeep uses black, white, and blue cardstock. The “happy” is the same blue as the jeep and the “Day” is also cut from the scrap in step 1. I used a Molotov Chrome maker for my grill and headlights but you can use silver card stock if you don’t have that. The fishing rod is out of white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. The dog is cut out of Soft Finish card stock and sponged with Distress Oxide Tea Dye ink. I put the jeep together first and added some shine by drawing in with a white gel pen.

Little details like the shine on a card or even the road can really anchor your pieces together.

Create your background by lightly sponging clouds and adding some greenery with the bushes from Adventure Edges. Adhere the strip for the road. My background piece was 4.5″ x 6.5″. I matted it with a 1/16″ border with a light grey cardstock.

Adhere all the pieces as you see on the card. I found it easier to stick the puppy behind the steering wheel of the jeep, then the fishing rod, and then the entire thing onto the card.

As you can see, I chose “happy Day” as my sentiment but in hindsight, or maybe foresight, I should do a “Good Luck” card for the teenager testing or the mom letting go. Heehee!

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.

Heard You Had A Ruff Day Card

May 29, 2019

Hi Everyone, It’s Tina here. I am so excited to share with you a card I made using the new release from Joset Designs. More character dies!!! There is a dog, cat, elephant, parrot and hippo along with a tent, camping accessories, fire accessories, hats, dog house and 2 stamp sets. Oh my! Below you will find the steps to create your own 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 using a scrap piece of cardstock. Use it as a stencil to create the clouds by applying ink on the edges. I used Distress Oxide Tumbled Grass.

Step 3 – Apply Ink to a piece of White Soft Finish cardstock using an Ink Applicator. I used Distress Oxide Twisted Citron. Diecut Adventure Edges to the inked cardstock. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 4 – Diecut Dog using White Soft Finish Cardstock for all the pieces except the nose and eyes. For eyes and nose use Black Cardstock. Color in the pieces using colors of your choice. I used Distress Oxide Distress Oxide Walnut Stain for the ears and spots and Antique Linen for the body and legs. Assemble all the pieces using Kids Choice Glue. Use a black fine tip marker for the mouth and detail on the paws.

Step 5 – Diecut Dog House using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Distress Ink Vintage Photo directly to the dog house swiping up and down to create a texture. For the rest of the pieces apply ink using an ink applicator. I used Distress Oxide Aged Mahogany for the roof and door frame and the door in Distress Ink Vintage Photo. Adhere the door to the card at the bottom center then adhere the dog house with the dog back paws inside the opening using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 6 – Diecut Cat using White Soft Finish for all the pieces except for the nose and whiskers. Use Black Cardstock for the nose and whiskers. I also diecut the eyes from the dog dieset. Color in the pieces using colors of your choice. I used Distress Oxide Weathered Wood for the head, body, outer ears and legs. Distress Oxide Tainted Rose for under the nose area, inner ears and paws. Assemble all the pieces using Kids Choice Glue. Use a black fine tip marker for the mouth and detail on the paws. Before assembling the leg on the right add the bone from the from the Dog House dieset. For the eyes I used the circle as the color and the dog eyes for the oval centers you see in cats. Adhere to card on top of the dog house using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 7 – Stamp sentiment using Black Ink on White Soft Finish Cardstock. Diecut Stitched Fishtail Banners to the sentiment and adhere to card using foam tape.

This card can be used for any occasion by changing the sentiment. I used a puny sentiment to show that the cat was teasing the dog. Below is a link to all the products used. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Ho Ho Ho Santa Snow Scene

November 12, 2018

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s Frances Byrne here today with another Christmas card tutorial to share with you. I have been having fun this year creating a lot of snowy Christmas scenes using Distress Oxide inks to create my skies. Christmas where I live down here in Australia is in summer, so we enjoy a hot Christmas Day with cold lunches and probably swimming in a pool. As we don’t experience snow, it is fun to create snowy scenes on paper instead.

Memories

August 2, 2018

 

Hi Friends, it’s Sandy Diller here to share a project that would be good as a keepsake or a gift.  I was in my local craft store a few weeks ago where I saw the cutest little box that contained a photo album.  I thought I would give it a try using my own measurements and decorations.  We recently took a trip to the beach so I thought this would be a good way to save some fun photos.
