Healing Hugs Catalog CASE (Copy and Share Everything)

I think Healing Hugs is one of my favorite stamp sets.  You can tell because I've had several other blog posts using it.  Check them out here and here and here. My card today is a CASE (Copy and Share Everything) of a card found on page 110.  Here's my copy.

CASE of Healing Hugs Catalog card page 110 by Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Thick Whisper White measuring 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.

We use a strip of Pear Pizzazz paper from the Subtles 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper stack.  It will measure 1 1/4 x 4 1/4.  Decide where you would like to place this strip and mark it lightly with a pencil.  Then do the stamping that will show from behind the paper.  The plus signs stamp and leaves are stamped in Pear Pizzazz.  The other little branches are stamped in Poppy Parade.

Stamp the sentiment on the paper strip.  The Happy Birthday is from the Southern Serenade stamp set.  I used the Stamparatus because I knew I would need to stamp the sentiment more than one time.  Adhere the strip to the card base.

Stamp the flower in Poppy Parade on Whisper White.  Also stamp a set of the leaves on this scrap.  Cut the flower and leaves out.  Adhere with dimensionals.  

Add a bow of Linen Thread with a rolled up glue dot.

For the inside of the card, use words from the Southern Serenade stamp set.  Stamp the flower in Poppy Parade and leaves in Pear Pizzazz.

You know, it's quite all right to copy someone else's work.  Why should we reinvent the wheel?  It is important to give credit if your work is not original.  When I saw this card in the catalog, I knew I had to copy it!

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop - Notes of Kindness Card Kit

Welcome to the Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop for July.  This month we are looking at the fabulous kits that Stampin' Up! has to offer.  I'm so glad you have joined us.  I hope you enjoy my projects.  My name is Jo Anne Hewins.

Image may contain: text

My favorite kit is the Notes of Kindness Card Kit.  It's easy to assemble and so nice.  Saying thank you can be so important.  Here is a picture of the cards in the kit as I made them according to directions.

Notes of Kindness Card Kit assembled by Jo Anne Hewins

This kit has supplies to  make 20 cards, 5 each of each card above.  Wow!  It's an all inclusive kit meaning that the stamp set and everything you need is included.  Just add some of your adhesive.  AND, a refill kit is available to purchase without the stamp set, clear block, and ink.

Just to make life a little more interesting, I've made 3 samples using these materials in a different way!

Notes of Kindness Card Kit Alternative Samples by Jo Anne Hewins

Let's talk a little about each one.

Notes of Kindness Alternative Card #1 by Jo Anne Hewins

For this card, start with the card base that is green striped.  Use your Blackberry Bliss ink and the THANKS stamp.  Using the Stamparatus, hinge stamp the thanks down the right side.

Take one of the Blushing Bride stickers and cut it down the middle lengthwise.  Add this along the bottom.  Try to place this so that part of the flower petal covers the seam.

Add the flower using dimensionals.  Add some of the Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins.  Divide a strand of the Blackberry Bliss cord from the Nature's Twine pack and make a bow.  Add this with a rolled up glue dot.

Notes of Kindness Card Kit Alternative #2 by Jo Anne Hewins

For this card, you'll need a Whisper White Note Card & Envelope.  Take one of the envelopes from the card kit and open it carefully at the seams so that you have a flat piece with the stripes showing.  Cut a piece of this 3 1/2 x 5 and adhere to the card front.

Stamp the plus sign stamp in Mossy Green on the front of the card.

Stamp the sentiment from the card kit in Mossy Meadow on one of the square punch outs.  I used the Stamparatus so I could stamp again if needed.  Add this with dimensionals.  Add the pink flower with dimensionals.

Add some of the Basic Adhesive Backed Sequins.

Notes of Kindness Card Kit Alternative #3 by Jo Anne Hewins

This is a full card.  Start with a card base of Thick Whisper White measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score and fold at 4 1/4.

Using the Tropical Escape 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper, cut the black leaves piece to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and adhere to the front of the card base.  The black and white stripe paper is cut to 2 x 5 1/2.  The Blushing Bride piece is 1/4 x 5 1/2.  There are 2 of these and they are butted up to the black and white stripe.

Using the Layering Circles, cut a circle from the Blushing Bride flower paper.  Adhere the Thank You sticker to the center of the circle.  Take the leaves punch out and cut it in half.  Place these pieces so that they come out from behind the circle.  Adhere all of this to the card with dimensionals.  Add a bow with a rolled up glue dot.  Use the left over twine from the card above.

Notes of Kindness Card Kit with 3 alternative cards by Jo Anne Hewins

So there you have three quick alternatives.  This is kit just so beautiful.  I love the colors!  I hope you'll consider adding this kit to your Wish List!

I hope you enjoyed my projects today.  Don't forget to take the rest of the blog hop!  I can't wait to see all of the ideas!  Thank you so much.  Please see the list of products below if you need some supplies.  I'd be so happy to help you.  My name is Jo Anne Hewins and I am from the USA.

Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #519 This Little Piggy

Good morning and welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge #519.  Today we are using Blushing Bride, Granny Apple Green, and Shaded Spruce.CCMC519
When I saw these colors I thought of the Tropical Escape 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper and This Little Piggy.  My card didn't turn out the way I envisioned, but here it is.

CCMC #519 This Little Piggy by Jo Anne Hewins

I used a lot of "stuff" to make this card.  So, let's get started!

The card base is Shaded Spruce measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The patterned paper is from the Tropical Escape 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  It's cut at 4 x 5 1/4.

I stamped three of the little pigs in Shaded Spruce directly on some of the Blushing Bride papers from Tropical Escape.  You'll have to cut these out with your snips.  

Use the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Layering Squares Framelits to cut a square frame.  Before attaching the frame, use it to help you place the pigs where you would like them.  I cut the pigs so that you only see the part sticking out from the frame.  Glue down the pigs.  Add the frame using the Foam Adhesive Strips.

CCMC #519 This Little Piggy & Tropical Chic close up by Jo Anne Hewins

I made the leaves using the Tropical Chic stamp set and the Tropical Thinlits.  The two toned leaves are made by first stamping in the lighter color, Granny Apple Green, and then adding some of the Shaded Spruce ink directly to the stamp using a sponge dauber.  Stamp on Whisper White.  Before stamping another leaf, be sure to clean your stamp.  This keeps you from getting the darker Shaded Spruce on the Granny Apple Green pad.  Add the leaves using glue and dimensionals where the leaves hang over the frame.  Add the Blushing Bride flowers with glue.

The sentiment is from the stamp set Varied Vases.  Stamp on white in Shaded Spruce and cut apart.

CCMC #519 This Little Piggs inside of card by Jo Anne Hewins

The inside is all stamped using the Tropical Chic stamp set and all of our colors for today, Blushing Bride, Shaded Spruce, and Granny Apple Green.  Don't forget that you can get the Tropical Chic stamp set and the Tropical Thinlits as a bundle and save 10% if you buy them together.

Healing Hugs and Delightfully Detailed Memories & More

Hello to all of you!  Have you seen the Delightfully Detailed Memories & More cards?  I think you'll be delightfully delighted with them!  This pack of cards have the makings for some great handmade cards!  Here's my card for today.

Healing Hugs and the Delightfully Detailed Memories & More Pack by Jo Anne Hewins

Yes, I am a sucker for black and white and this pack has some of that!  I am so glad that Blackberry Bliss has come back to stay.

Start with a card base of Thick Whisper White.  It is cut at 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.

The black and white striped card is cut to 4 x 5 1/4.  The large circle black and white piece measures 2 x 4.

The Nature's Twine blackberry cord is used on this card.  I feel this is a little thick and perhaps hard to mail.  I pulled the twine apart into 3 pieces.  Use the paper piercing tool to begin pulling the strings apart at one end to help you get started.  One of the pieces is wrapped around the card.  I usually just tape that on the card under where the next layer will be.  I made a bow with the other 2 pieces.  I just hold that to the side and add with a glue dot later.

The card with the light blackberry wash is cut to 2 x 3 and added with dimensionals.

Stamp the flower from Healing Hugs in Blackberry Bliss on a Whisper White scrap.  Also stamp the leaves in Shaded Spruce.  Fussy cut these and add to the card.   Add the bow.

There you have it.  Quick and easy!

Healing Hugs  with Delightfully Detailed Memories & More inside of card by Jo Anne Hewins

For the inside, I used a piece of the black and white card that was left over.  It didn't reach all the way to the ends of the card stock, but I think it's fine.  Stamp another flower and leaves, cut out, and add to the card.  The saying is from Botanical Bliss.  I added it just above the black and white banner.  This would actually make a pretty card, don't you think!

A Little Twinkle Love Card

Select designer series paper packs are on sale during July.  They are buy 3, get 1 free.  You can mix and match them.  It's a good deal!  Today I want to share a card using the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper.  It's lovely.  This paper pairs with the Little Twinkle stamp set.  Yes, it's basically for babies, but not exclusively.  Here is my card for today.  It's more of a love card.

Little Twinkle bundle by Jo Anne Hewins

I think it turned out quite lovely.  Start out with a card base of Thick Whisper White measuring 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.  I do recommend scoring with the thick card stock.

The patterned paper is from the Twinkle Twinkle pack and is cut at 4 x 5 1/4.

The label on the front is cut from Whisper White card stock using the Stitched Labels Framelits.  This cut out is just so cute with the stitching and open spaces.  Stamp the saying in Versamark, cover with gold embossing powder, and melt with the Heat Tool.

Thread the Night of Navy Gingham Ribbon through the label and pull it around to tie in the front.  I did pop up the label with dimensionals.  I also added a few glue dots to position the ribbon so you could see most of the words.

The little hearts are cut using the same framelits.  Cut from Melon Mambo.

There's only one more thing to do.  Use the Twinkle Builder Punch to punch pieces from Gold Foil.  Glue down the pieces where you like them.

Little Twinkle card inside by Jo Anne Hewins

The inside has the heart of stars stamped in Melon Mambo and the saying in Night of Navy.  It's simple but sweet.

Little Twinkle Love Card by Jo Anne Hewins

Of course this card is perfect for a baby, but it could just as well be an anniversary card, or just a reminder to someone that they are loved.  Who doesn't like that?

This card is quick and easy.  That just might make it perfect!
