Garden Impresions Designer Series Paper with Daisy Delight

Have you seen the new 6 x 6 pack of designer paper called Garden Impressions?  Stampin' Up! has done it again!  It is so pretty and will be available on June 1st when the new annual catalog goes live.

Garden Impressions 6" x 6" (15.2 x 15.2 cm) Designer Series Paper

See how pretty it is?  Here's the card I made using one of the sheets.

Garden Impressions DSP with Daisy Delight by Jo Anne Hewins for Luv 2 Create

I love tiny designs so this is probably my favorite piece.  Here are the details for the card.

The card base of Night of Navy measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and is folded at 4 1/4.  The Crushed Curry layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  Crushed Curry is not listed as one of the colors in the pack, but it matches this sheet.  I thought is looked a little better than So Saffron.  The Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper is cut at 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.

I wrapped the Crushed Curry Solid Baker's Twine around the card 3 times.  It's retiring so I was generous with it.  As I write this post, it is still available on the Last Chance List.  Find it here.  I used my bow maker to make a bow of the twine.  Add it later with a glue dot.

The focal point on the card is the daisy from the Daisy Delight Bundle.  Stamp the daisy 2 times using Crushed Curry ink on So Saffron cardstock.  I used my Aqua Painter and some of the ink from the lid of the Crushed Curry pad to add a little more color toward the inside of the petals.  Punch these out with the Daisy punch.  Use the Bone Folder to curl the petals of the daisies.  I curled one toward the front and one toward the back.  Use a dimensional to join the two with the curled back daisy on top.  For the center of the daisy, stamp it with Sahara Sand on So Saffron paper.  Punch it out with the 1/2" circle punch and add with a dimensional.

Stamp the leaf on Granny Apple Green cardstock with the same color 5 times.  You'll have to fussy cut this.  I attached the leaves after I placed the flower and the bow on the card.  Just put them where you like them.

The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.  Stamp in Night of Navy on So Saffron cardstock and trim around it.

For the inside of the card, I used a strip of the Garden Impressions paper that was left over.  It is 1/4 x 5 1/4.  The sentiment is from the Detailed with Love stamp set stamped in Night of Navy.  I gave this card to my friend Kaye for her birthday.  I did stamp a birthday greeting under the patterned paper strip for her.  I thought it looked nice.

Painted Harvest with Lots of New Stuff!

Painted Harvest was the most popular stamp set from the Holiday catalog.  It is being carried over to the new Stampin' Up! annual catalog.  It's a great stamp set.  Today I am using this set along with lots of new product.  Here is my card.

Painted Harvest  Handwritten background stamp card by Jo Anne Hewins

The colors for this card are wonderful.  These are all new colors coming to the new catalog.  

The card base is Granny Apple Green.  It's bright and crisp just like its namesake.  The base is cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The next layer is Gorgeous Grape measuring 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  Finally there is a layer of Highland Heather.  It measures 3 3/4 x 5.  These new purples are wonderful.  Stamp the Highland Heather layer with the Handwritten background stamp in the same color.  I love this!

Wrap a layer of the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the card.  After you make the flower, you'll attach a bow of the same ribbon with a glue dot.

For the flower, stamp the larger flower stamp in Highland Heather on Whisper White paper.  Now stamp the more detailed flower stamp in Gorgeous Grape.  The center of the flower is stamped in Pineapple Punch.  Fussy cut the flower with snips.  The leaves are from the Nature's Roots Framelits.  I used the Granny Apple Green again.  Run the three different leaves through the Big Shot with the embossing framelits.  Then run the paper through again with the leaf outlines that cut.  Use a sponge dauber to color the leaves a little.  Add the leaves so that they would stick out from the flower.  Add the flower.  The leaves and flower are attached with dimensionals.  Stamp the center on Whisper White and cut it out.  Attach with a dimensional.

The hello is from the Varied Vases stamp set.  Use the Classic Label Punch, trim, and add to the lower left.

Here is the inside of the card.  Stamp the flower again as on the front.  The leaves are stamped in Granny Apple Green.  Stamp off the more solid leaf.  The saying is from Varied Vases.

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop Sneak Peak

Welcome to the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop.  This month we are sharing a sneak peek of products from the upcoming Stampin' Up! 2018-2019 annual catalog.  My name is Jo Anne Hewins and I am from the USA.

Today I'll be sharing a card made using the Abstract Impressions bundle.  Here's my card.

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop Abstract Impressions card by Jo Anne Hewins

My card features two of the new In Colors for 2018-2020.  They are Lovely Lipstick and Call Me Clover.  They just look great together. 

My card base is Thick Whisper White measuring 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 5 1/2 and then fold.  Use your Bone Folder to burnish the fold.

The striped paper is from the 2018-2020 In Color 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper stack.  Cut it 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 so that it fits the front of the card. 

Using the Lovely Lipstick card stock, cut out the flowers from the Springtime Impressions Thinlits.  These are the thinlits that coordinate with the Abstract Impressions stamp set.  Crumple the cut out in your fist and then unfold a little.  I actually turned the cut out over on the back so that it would fit in the upper left corner and run down the card.  Adhere the cut out with rolled up glue dots here and there.  Some of the cut out will stick up from the card.

Use the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut a Whisper White oval and the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut a scalloped oval of Call Me Clover.  Stamp the leaves and flowers on the white.  For each there is a stamped off step and a part not stamped off.

Run a length of the Call Me Clover Grosgrain Ribbon around the card and tape it down under where the ovals will be.  Add the ovals with dimensionals.  Add a bow with a glue dot.

The sentiment is from the new Itty Bitty Greetings.

I love the way Lovely Lipstick and Call Me Clover look together.  It makes me feel like spring!

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #510 Sea of Textures

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge.  Today we have a sketch for you.


I've found myself using the Sea of Textures bundle a lot lately.  Pairing the stamp set and the Under the Sea Thinlits makes it easy to make a great looking card.

CCMC #510 by Jo Anne Hewins

You might remember the color Mint Macaron.  It was an In Color several years back.  Mint Macaron is back.  It's part of the new Subtles line up for Stampin' Up!  I used this color for the base of my card today.  It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  I stamped the front of the card in Night of Navy ink randomly with the bubbly ocean look stamp.  Some are stamped off.  Then run the front of the card through the Big Shot with the Seaside Embossing Folder.

The patterned paper used with this card is called Tranquil Textures.  The largest rectangle is cut 3 x 4.  The smaller one is 2 x 3.  I decorated the smaller rectangle with some sea life in Berry Burst, Night of Navy and Mint Macaron card stock.  These were cut from the Under the Sea Thinlits.

The octopus was colored with sponge daubers.  The top is in Berry Burst and the bottom is in Night of Navy.  I used the Stamperatus so I could reink and stamp again until I had the bold colors I wanted.  Cut this out with the Under the Sea Thinlits.

The words are part of the new Itty Bitty Greetings.  It's punched with the Classic Label Punch.

Swirly Frames with Oh, So Eclectic

When you attend one of the Stampin' Up! On Stage events, you also win something from Prize Patrol.  I won the stamp set Swirly Frames in Atlanta.  I'll admit that I wasn't that excited.  I do think this set will turn out to be one of my favorite go to sets.  I used the set to make the background circles on this card.

Swirly Frames and Oh  So Eclectic by Jo Anne Hewins

It might not show up so much in this photo.  I used the new Balmy Blue for the large circles and the new Soft Sea Foam for the smaller circles.  Stamp off both colors first.

The card base is Balmy Blue measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Stamp the circles along the edges of the base.  This will add interest to the card.  I did stamp off for this.

The Soft Sea Foam layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  This Whisper White layer is 3 1/2 x 4 3/4.  

Build the flowers from the Oh, So Eclectic bundle in the center of one of the blue stamped circles.  Stamp the leaves in Soft Sea Foam on the same color and cut out.  For the full flower and the bud, you will need to cut out the detailed part and the outline part of the Eclectic Layers Thinlits.  For the detailed part, place the outline around the detail and cut out together.  Cut another outline part.  For the bud, cut the stem part again from Soft Sea Foam.  Cut out three of the tiny stems in Soft Sea Foam.  Arrange all in a pleasing way.  The large flower is on dimensionals.

The saying is from the stamp set Detailed with Love.  I used the Stamperatus to say the words.  It makes it so much easier to get the words in the right place.

The inside of the card has more circles.  It's easier to see in this photo.  The saying is also from the Detailed with Love stamp set.
