Beach Bum Easel Card

February 26, 2020

Hello friends! It’s Sandy Diller here with you today and I have a fun summer card that makes me think of warmer days ahead. I’m using dies from the latest release from Joset Designs along with the Safari Jeep, which is one of my favorites. I have lots of good stuff to show you, so let’s get started. (I also have a step-by-step video below!)

This card is a 5.5″ wide by 6″ tall card. It is an unusual size but it needed to be big enough to hold all the dies as well as fit in a 6″ X 6″ envelope. It is an easel card that folds flat for mailing.

Let’s start with our card base which is 12″ X 5.5″ and then scored at 6″ and then again at 8.75″ to create the easel.

In addition to the base, you will need a panel that is 5.5″ X 6″ for the front panel. I used White Soft Finish Cardstock for both of my panels.

On the smaller panel I created clouds by first making a template using the cloud die from the Adventure Edges. I keep this in the envelope with the die set so it is always handy.

By moving the template down and changing the angle each time you add ink it makes a lovely cloudy sky.

Using the Ocean Edges, I cut a panel of sand from manila cardstock and added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I then added the panel to the sky panel at the bottom.

Using the Sand Crab die set I cut and assembled my Crab. I used Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back of the mouth and eyes to create a sticker for easy assembly.

Using the Safari Jeep die set I cut and assembled the Jeep. I wanted my Jeep to look rusty so edged it with brown ink.

Next I added the “Crab” Driver

After cutting out what I needed from the Diving Accessories die set, they were colored and assembled into the Jeep with the Crab Driver.

Then everything was added to the panel with the sky and sand.

After cutting and inking a panel with a wave cut at the top(from the Ocean Edges die set), it was scored at 2.5″. The panel was then place on the inside of the card using foam tape.

The panel with the Jeep was then added to the front of the card lining up the bottom edges.

For the finishing touches, one of the shells was stamped with “Beach Bun” from the Splish Splash stamp set. More shells were added to the bottom of the card.

Check out my step-by-step tutorial video for this project!

Thanks for joining me today and have fun, think summer!!

Splish Splash

February 16, 2020

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.
