Hello – Samantha here! Today I am sharing a Halloween-themed card. Halloween might not be wildly celebrated here in Australia – but I have always enjoyed the colour schemes and fun images associated with this holiday. I also enjoy eating candy and chocolate…
Step 1: Using black cardstock die cut the spider web and adhere this to a black card base measuring 10.5cm x 15.5cm .
Step 2: Using bright pink cardstock die cut the spider web – use the negative pieces and insert these into the negative space of the black outlined spider web.
TIP: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to the back of the pink card before die-cutting to make the adhering process quick and easy.
Step 3: Repeat step 2 to fill in the remaining negative spaces using bright orange and purple card or specialty paper.
Step 4: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to black card stock and die cut the spiders 3x.
Step 5: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Basic Black). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
Step 6: Using watermark ink – stamp the sentiment. Apply a generous amount of white embossing powder and heat set with a heat gun/tool. Trim to size as shown.
(Optional) Add machine stitched detail to the spider web.
Step 7: Assemble card – use foam tape to adhere the sentiment and spiders. Embellish with enamel dots and a twine bow. Adhere to an A6 side folding card base.

Fall is such a wonderful season! The colors are so gorgeous, it inspired me to make this simple card for someone really amazing… just as beautiful as Mother Nature!
Step 1: Card background
Cut 12 X 6 inches yellow cardstock and fold in half (to make a 6 X 6 inches card).
Cut a 5 3/4 X 5 3/4 inches square out of gold cardstock.
Cut a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 White Soft Finish cardstock 110 Lb.
Step 2: Stencil leaves
On the white square piece, using the stencil S024-Leaf Snowflake, apply different colors of Distress Oxide on the right side of the square.
Using a fine brown marker, draw some vein lines on each leaf.
Step 3: The leaves
Using the Leafy Branch 2 – #1315 die set, die cut 3 times in a copper cardstock.
With the same die, die cut one time on a White Soft Finish cardstock double with Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Sheet.
Remove the release sheet and cover with some Orange Silk Microfine Glitters – #413. Polish well to remove excess glitters.
Using the Pair Of Leaves 1 – #1314 die set, die cut each leaf in a gold cardstock.
With the same dies, die cut each leaves one time on a White Soft Finish cardstock double with Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Sheet.
Remove the release sheet and cover one leaf with some Orange Silk Microfine Glitters – #413, and the other one with some Light Gold Microfine Glitters – #644. Polish well to remove excess glitters on both leaves.
Step 4 : Water Can
Out of White Soft Finish cardstock 110 Lb, die cut the water can, using the die set from Susan’s Garden collection, Garden Notes -Garden Water Can – #1647.
Emboss the water can with some patina embossing powder.
Step 5: The sentiment
Using the die set “Words 2 – Thinking of You” #1466, die cut the words “you’re” and “amazing” out of some gold cardstock.
The final touch!
Using some Transparent Double Sided AdhesiveTape, adhere the gold cardstock on the card base, and adhere the white cardstock on the gold cardstock.
Adhere the water can with some foam adhesive, and arrange the leaves using Kids Choice Glue to fix them in the right places.
Glue the sentiment on the bottom of the water can.
The newest Planner Essential collection included 8 new stamps and 8 new dies sets, with Christmas and cooking themes! We also released 3 new planner colors alongside this collection! Take a look at some of them below!
It’s Karen here today. I’m not normally a Halloween craft creator, but with this amazing new release from Joset, I honestly can’t resist. So many fun ideas! Today, I’m sharing a card inspired by my crafty mentor and dear friend Sharon.
Hello and Welcome! Samantha here, the card I am sharing today is all about the dies! NO stamping, NO colouring –– simple, fun, geometric card made with the arrows from Planner Essentials #5.
Step 1: Adhere clear double sided adhesive to the back of pattern paper and cardstock. Next, die cut the arrows several times.
TIP: Be as adventurous and bold with your colour choices –– you could even try silk microfine glitter or shimmer sheetz as alternatives to pattern paper.
Step 2: Die Cut the ‘hello’ die from Words 2 – Thing of You set using the same pattern paper and card stock.
Step 3: Position the arrows before removing the release sheet to adhere the arrows onto your card front (card front measurement: 10.5cm x 15.5cm). Leave appropriately sized spaces for the hello die cuts.
Step 4: (Options) Add machine stitched details. Corner punch the top right corner.
TIP: Instead of adding machine stitching to your card front – use foam tape to adhere the arrows adding a fun dimensional detail.
Step 5: Adhere the hello die cuts. Adhere card front to an A6 card base.
Step 6: Embellish card front with a twine bow and sequins.
I hope you are inspired by my card today –– I love that I can reuse these planner dies in my card making.

Cut out 4 times the strip from the die “Happy Frame” (#1499) and cut them length wise to mesure 6″.
Build the frame up and adhere on the card base.
Step 2: A trio of leaves:
In a green cardstock, die cut 3 times each leaf in the die set “Trio Of Leaves” (#1464).

Also with the Kids Choice Glue, glue down the flowers.
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.
Step 1: Using a variety of cardstock and specialty paper die cut all the pieces in the Holiday Birdhouse die.

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.
