Cardmaking Inspiration from the Design Team Joset Designs

    Have A Fin-tastic Day –– Sneak Peek!

    January 21, 2020

    Hi there! It’s Tanja here with a sneak peek of Joset’s upcoming release! Today, I’m showing you how to create a cute card using the upcoming Whale die set.

    Step 1: Die Cutting

    • cut out the elements for the little whale with its cute little hat from the Whale set from white Soft Finish Cardstock

    Step 2: Coloring

    • color the elements with Alcohol Markers and add extra shading with Distress Oxide Ink (Black Soot, Hickory Smoke, Chipped Sapphire, Aged Mahogany)

    Step 3: Assemble the Whale

    • assemble the whale using liquid glue
    • add highlights with a white gel pen

    Step 4: Creating the Background

    • for the background cut out a stitched watercolor panel using one of the Stitched Rectangles
    • cut out a cloud border with the help of the Adventure Edges die set and three wave borders using the brand new Ocean Edges die set
    • add shading to the clouds and the waves with Distress Oxide Ink (Stormy Sky, Mermaid Lagoon)
    • stamp the sentiment from the coordinating Splish Splash Sentiments set with Versafine Clair Medieval Blue

    Step 5: Finishing the Card

    • adhere the whale to the background using clear double-sided adhesive
    • add two strips of patterned paper to the left and right of the panel before adhering it to a cardbase

    While I was creating the whale card my daughter Emily (9) crafted alongside me and she chose the new Sea Turtle die set and some seaweed and stones from the Seaweed die set for her project. Here is what she came up with:

    I hope you got inspired. We can’t wait for Joset’s release!
