Cardmaking Inspiration from the Design Team Joset Designs Soft Finish Cardstock

Hocus Pocus

October 15, 2019

Hi Friends! It’s EK popping in to create a little Halloween Fun. My family’s favorite Halloween movie is Hocus Pocus, and it occurred to me, that I could make my own bit of witchy fun using the Halloween Accessories and some creative coloring.

Step One: Die cut all the pieces you need from some 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock using both the Halloween Accessories die set and the Spider Web die set.

Step Two: Color up the accessories and assemble using Kids Choice Glue. I used a combination of cool grays for the cauldron (C5, C7, C9). I used E31, E34, and E37 for the bristles on the broom stick, while I used E81, E84, and E87 for the handle and spoon. I used G02, G05, and G09 for the bubbles and sludge.

Step Three: Color up the Witch’s Hats and assemble with Kid’s Choice Glue. I themed each of the hats after each of the three witches from Hocus Pocus. I colored a blonde hat (Y000, Y00, Y02 and Y06) to represent Sarah, a gray hat (W5, W7, W9) to represent Mary, and a reddish hat (E13, E07, E09, E19) to represent Winifred.

Step Four: Cut a piece of Bonnie Blue Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 inches and score and fold to make a 6×6 card base. Then spray and splatter the card frame with some Distress Oxide Spray. I used Mermaid Lagoon.

Step Five: Die cut out the movie title’s letters using the Blackboard Alphabet letters from some Spring Green Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Six: Using a copic maker, give the title a little shading. I used both a YG13 and N2 copic.

Step Seven: Trim the spider web into half and adhere it to the corners of the card frame with some Kids Choice Glue.

Step Eight: Using both Kids Choice Glue and 6mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the rest of the pieces of the card to the card frame.

I just love how this card came out and can’t wait to send it to my best friend who loves this move even more than I do. I think without stealing any intellectual rights, I was about to absolutely capture the feel of the movie.

Let me know in the comments below if I put a spell on you! Until then, Happy Crafting.

Love You To The Moon & Back Tag

October 5, 2019

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, I’m excited to be sharing with you my Love you to the Moon & Back Tag which features a variety of dies and stamps from Suzanne Cannon! To compliment the products from Suzanne Cannon, I’ve also used dies from the Planner Essentials and Els van de Burgt Studio.

See my step-by-step below –– I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

Step One. Die cut the large tag from the Planner Essentials – 2 die out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Two. Place the Butterflies & Stars stencil on the tag and using a blending tool with foam, blend Fossilized Amber Distress Ink through the stencil. Move the stencil as desired around the tag and blend ink through it.

Step Three. Die cut the Ornament from the Love, Joy & Peace Ornament out of a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Cut the top portion of the ornament off.

Step Four. Die cut a 2 1/4″ Stitched Circle out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Apply a sticky note a 1/8″ in on the left hand side of the stitched circle. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the Moon & Back sentiment from the Soar Collection stamp set and stamp in the middle of the circle. Make sure that the majority of the moon gets stamped onto the sticky note.

Step Five. Die cut the Star spray from the Butterflies & Stars Sprays out of a piece of Sunflower Soft Finish Cardstock. You’ll need seven stars from the spray.

Step Six. Adhere the ornament to the stitched circle. Foam square the stitched circle to the right hand side of the tag.

Step Seven. Adhere the three of the stars around the Moon & Back sentiment. Adhere the other four stars as desired on the tag.

Step Eight. To finish the tag, tie a piece of twine to the top of the tag.

Thank you for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Love you to the Moon & Back Tag.

Create The Things

September 22, 2019

Hi Friends! It’s EK and I am back once again to share how I colored up another one of Charlene’s new 6×8 inch stamp sets. Today I am playing around with the new Make a Wish stamp set. This is a really stunning stamp set filled with feathers and floral images. But hands down my favorite thing about this stamp set is the gal in it. What do I love about her? Well, I think she could be anybody. She could be any girl you want her to be. She can be brave, or curious, she could be sad or celebratory. She can be you or your best friend.

So I today I am creating a card that is wishful…for what, I haven’t fully decided yet, but I love how the feathers help create the feeling I as going for.

Step One: Trim a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock to 6×6 inches. Then Using a copic friendly ink, stamp the feathers from the Make a Wish stamp set all over the cardstock. I choose to use a collection of four colors to color up the feathers, so I planned out where each color would go. You can see where I marked each of the feathers with the lightest colors so that I did not accidentally color two feathers next to each other the same.

Step Two: Finish coloring up the feathers. I used a collection of earth tone copics to finish this card. The four collection of colors I used were as follows: E11, E13 and E15/ E40, E42, and E43/ E70, E71 and E74/ and finally E93, E95, and E97. I also used my E40 collection around the edges of the cardstock.

Trim a piece of Cafe au Lait Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 inches. Score and fold the cardstock to make a 6×6 card frame. Adhere the feather cardstock to the card frame using some 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step Three: On a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock (my favorite weight paper to fussy cut), stamp the image of the gal from the Make a Wish stamp set using copic friendly ink. Then color the image. I used E23, E35 and E57 for her skin tones, E23, E25, and E27 for her hair, and E07, E09, and E19 for her dress. Fussy cut out the image. Adhere the girl to the feather image.

Step Four: Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of Mustard Soft Finish Cardstock. Then die cut the sentiment using the Fitted Indented Square die set. Adhere the sentiment to the card.

I like that this card really could be used for almost any occasion. It is a nice one to have lying around for when you have an ‘opps, I need a card’ moments in life.

Let us know in the comments below what things you would created that you wished existed. Until then, happy crafting.
