Cardmaking Joset Designs Soft Finish Cardstock

Tweet Greetings Card

November 30, 2019

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Today I am sharing a tweet greetings card using the Winter Bird and Sleigh dies from Joset Designs. 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 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”. Apply ink of your choice to the entire panel. I used Distressed Oxide Inks. Optional add some White Acrylic Paint using a water brush to create a snowfall. Lightly tap the brush so the paint Will splatter onto the panel. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 3 – Diecut Adventure Edges 2 using White Soft Finish Cardstock to create hills. Adhere the bottom 2 using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Stamp Joyful Wishes sentiment to the top hill using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Adhere to card.

Step 4 – Diecut Winter Bird and Sleigh (just the tree) using coloured Cardstock. Optional I added shading using an alcohol marker to the edges. I used the Spectrum Noir Classique Markers. Assemble the tree and bird using Kids Choice Glue and adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 5 – Optional. For added interest and sparkle I used a fine tip applicator using liquid glue around the edges of the tree and some parts of the bird then before it dried I added Silk Microfine Glitter in Warm Diamond. The sparkle in real life is stunning but the photo doesn’t do it justice. For a finishing touch use a White Gel Pen to add dots to the tree and bird. I think I went crazy but I love the results.

This card was super fun and creates an adorable holiday card. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Merry Christmas Gift Tag

October 21, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Merry Christmas Gift Tag.

To create my gift tag, I’ve used a variety of dies from the Planner Essentials collection and Joset Designs. I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

Step One. Die cut the large tag from the Planner Essentials – 2 die and die cut it out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the script stamp from the Background Stamps 2 and stamp randomly seven times on the tag. Reapply ink to the stamp as needed. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the fraction stamp from the Background Stamps 1 and stamp randomly seven times on the tag. Reapply ink to the stamp as needed. Ink the edges of the tag using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Die cut two wreaths from the Planner Pocket – 2 out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Three. From the Planner Essentials – 13 die, die cut the deer out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Vintage Photo Distress Ink over the entire surface of the deer.

Step Four. Choose a label from the Planner Labels die and then die cut it out of kraft cardstock. Apply Fired Brick Distress Ink to the Merry Christmas stamp from the Joyful Wishes stamp set and stamp onto the label. Ink the edges of the label using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. Adhere one of the wreaths to the middle of the tag. Adhere the other wreath over top of the previous adhered wreath, making sure the circles don’t line up.

Step Six. Foam square the deer to the middle of the wreath.

Step Seven. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the Merry Christmas label to the right of the deer.

Step Eight. Tie a piece of twine to the top of the tag. To finish the label, use the Craft Drops – Metallic Silver to add two drops in the top left corner and three drops in the bottom right side of the label.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Christmas Gift Tag.

A Way With Words Joset Designs Silk Microfine Glitter

All That Glitters!

September 19, 2019

Hi friends, it’s Sandy Diller back with you today to share a fun and easy way to add some glam to your holiday season!

This project is perfect for gift giving or an easy kids activity. Let’s get started making these festive ornaments.

To make these ornaments I started with the clear glass bulbs that can be found in any of the big box stores. If you don’t find them now, it won’t be long before they show up. They come in many shapes and sizes and I have used a variety here. The tops pull right out for filling with your choice of décor.

As shown below – I have used the Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage to coat the inside of the bulb.

You can use as much as you like to coat the inside because what you don’t use will be returned to the bottle for future use. I like to fill mine about half way – cover the opening with my finger and – then move the liquid around until the inside is completely coated. Try not to shake it because that causes bubbles. Return unused liquid to the jar. If you should get a bubble, turn the ornament upside down and the bubbles will slide out. You may have to give it a little shake or tap.

Once the inside of the bulb is coated with the Decoupage Finish – and while still wet – the Silk Microfine Glitter should be added. Once again, no need to be frugal with the glitter as the unused portion will be returned to the jar for another use. Cover the opening and this time you can feel free to shake it until the entire inside is coated with glitter. Return remaining glitter to the jar. Depending on where you live, you may want to leave the lid off the glitter jar and allow some time for the glitter to dry out. I live in Arizona so it doesn’t take long. If you live in a humid climate you may want to set the open jar aside over night.

Using the Flourished Christmas Minis, cut two designs from silver paper and glue to the outside of the ornament. When the inside is completely dry, replace cap and tie a bow on top.

Tip: First add Double Sided Adhesive to the back of the paper before cutting the design. This way you will have a nice clean sticker to add to the ornament.

The process is exactly the same for all the ornaments, decorate as desired.

For this one, Iced Teal Silk Microfine Glitter and the new Snowflake die from Joset Designs was used.

Here Real Red Silk Microfine Glitter was used and another Snowflake from the same set as above. The Snowflake was cut apart so it would lie flat.

Here is an example of one of the beautiful colors found in the Earth Microfine Glitter Pallette. This one is further decorated with the Berry Branch die and Nuvo Drops for the berries. The branch was cut apart for a perfect fit.

I’m really fond of this one because of it’s unusual shape. After adding the Royal Teal Silk Microfine Glitter it became the perfect night sky. Some adorable little houses were added using the Village Edges die and the star is from the center of the snowflake used on the red ornament. The final touch is a stamped banner.

I have enjoyed sharing these ornaments with you and I do hope you will give it a try. I have linked all the products I used below for your shopping convenience.

Until next time – stay crafty,

Here Comes Santa Claus

July 18, 2019

Hey Friends! It is EK and I am so excited to be playing with my craft supplies today. Have you see the huge holiday announcement….the new Joset’s die collection has dropped over at Elizabeth Craft Designs! This release is filled with all kinds of wonderful Christmas and Holiday dies and a sentiment stamp.

Today I am playing around with the new Sleigh and Reindeer die set to create this cute Christmas card.

Step One: Die cut the Reindeer die set from some 90lb White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two: Color up the die cut pieces using alcohol markers. I used my copics (E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, R24, R46, and R89). I then adhered the pieces together to with some Kids Choice Glue.

Step Three: Repeat step one and two with the new Sleigh die set. I used my copic markers to color it up (R14, R17 R46, R89).

Step Four: Repeat step one and two with the gifts in the new Sleigh die set. I used my copics to color these presents up (B24, B26, B28, BV02, BV04, BV08).

Step Five: Repeat step one and two with the tree pieces from the new Sleigh die set. I colored the tree up with my copics (G09, G19, G29, R17, R46, R89, BB24, B26, B28, BV02, BV04, BV08).

Step Six: Adhered the gifts into the sleigh.

Step Seven: Trim a piece of Sky Blue Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 inches and fold and score at 6 inches to make a 6×6 card frame. Then die cut a piece of printed It’s Christmas Time paper with the new Stitched Indented Squares die set. Adhere the die cut piece to the card frame with some 10mm clear double sided adhesive.

Step Eight: Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the sleigh, tree and reindeer to the card frame. Trim off any pieces that hang off.

Step Nine: Add some blue snowflakes from the tiny snowflake in the new Joyful Wishes sentiment stamp set.

Step Ten: Add some shading under the reindeer and sleigh with alcohol markers (I used copic markers N0, N2, N4) and stamp a sentiment from the new Joyful Wishes stamp set.

I hope you are as excited about this new release as we are. Let us know in the comments below which pieces of the release you are most excited to use. Until then, Happy Crafting.
